Dear Gossips,

I love a lot of things about Duana. But one of my favourite things, especially during award season, is that she still calls her Giuliana DePandi. I’m like a kid when she does it, begging her, “Do it again! Do it again!” It’s the best.

So. The American Music Awards. I watched them for Taylor Swift. Then I had to endure Ariana Grande TWO TIMES – and her jack rabbit of a brother – to get to JLO’s ass. That’s three hours that should have been Diana Ross, Beyonce, Taylor, Sam Smith, Skylar Grey, and Wyclef, that’s it. Doesn’t that cover all the food groups? Instead I had to have nightmares about the Magic guy and his gross hips

We’ll get to the AMAs – as much as I can stand to cover – but first…we have some other business to address from the weekend. Like a possible problem for Brange. And what Gwyneth did in Dallas and who was there with her. It’ll likely be a heavy column today with recaps etc too. Please refresh often! And if you want a preview of my thoughts on the AMAs to get started, please check out my Twitter here.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey 

A great ass doesn’t make a song

Jennifer Lopez got all wet-haired and grindy for the final performance of the night with Iggy Azalea at the American Music Awards which came with an advance warning that it was going to be all kinds of raunch. Hardly. Instead, it was a lot of dancing. And a costume change. And yes, JLO looked amazing and she moved energetically but… That wasn’t a song. Full Story

Can you really be called a great vocalist when it’s just sounds coming out of your mouth with no words? I don’t understand a word of what Ariana Grande is singing because she’s too busy doing sh-t with the notes. She also has, like, zero stage presence. That could be an 8 year old at a recital for all I know. Full Story

On the subject of perspective… I’ve written about it so many times, what heartbreak is like at that age – so singular and isolating, so…narcissistic. You don’t think anyone has ever hurt the way you hurt. You think you INVENTED hurt. Despite what she posted on Instagram from backstage at rehearsal, about wanting people to relate, really, this kind of pain is an emotional cave that was created for only one inhabitant at a time. Full Story

Fergie & Iggy at the AMAs

Perspective. Makes you look like an asshole. And it took Iggy Azalea to make me realise how much I like Fergie. As I’ve said before re: Iggy Azalea, I am not a believer. I refuse to buy into her star. Madonna was the one who taught us how to pat our pussies, OK? Fergie though… I loved everything about Fergie last night – the wrap shirt over the bodysuit, the gold boots, she was on point with the performance, she sounded great, her legs are sick, and she’s as pretty as she’s ever been. Full Story

Last night was all about Sam Smith’s coat. That coat! It took me back. Back to 80s London pop. Before Rick Astley was properly appreciated. Before he became an internet meme. I haven’t been Rick-rolled in so long I almost miss it. Sam Smith was like the baby Rick and Boy George always wanted to have together. Full Story

At this point I think she should just change the name of the song to Lonely Starbucks Lovers. Yes, I can read the lyrics. But all I HEAR is “Lonely Starbucks Lovers”. And reading your emails and tweets, it seems you are the same. I love that they had to give her a Lifetime Achievement Award just to get her there. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was in Dallas this weekend for the GOOP pop-up. On Thursday there was a launch party. Monique Lhuillier was there too. There’ve been a few people who’ve yelled at me lately over email about being more on side with Martha Stewart than GOOP and not knowing who the GOOP client would be. Full Story

In advance of the American Music Awards – and the RIDICULOUS fact that Iggy Azalea was nominated for more awards than she was, WTF? – Beyonce dropped her video for 7/11 on Friday. Which is what everyone was talking about for most of the weekend. And she stepped out with Jay wearing a “B” in the front, “BOW DOWN” in the back varsity jacket just in case you don’t get the point… As for the video? Oh come on. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 3 Episode 3 recap It is my opinion – and I know opinions are worth not all that terribly much – that I didn’t talk all that much about my wedding. (Lainey: this is true.) Answered questions when asked, maybe asked a friend a comparison question about photographers, that’s about it. Full Story

Angelina Jolie was in New York this weekend doing some work for Unbroken. Then she took her girls, Miss Zahara and Shiloh the Chosen, to Lee’s for art supplies. They’ve gone there often. And they’ve been photographed there often. So the kids know the deal. They know about the photographers. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 5, Episode 7 recap Tara named their group GREATM. That’s adorable. With only two episodes left before the winter hiatus, and what seems to be a mandate to not drag things out anymore, the penultimate episode before the break has a lot of ground to cover. To that end, we spend time with each faction of survivors: Rick & Co. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s been a few days since we’ve seen Taylor Swift modelling clothes while coming out of her NYC apartment. What’s she been up to then?

American Music Awards Sunday night. She’ll be performing Blank Space for the first time on stage. Or, as I’ve started calling it, “Lonely Starbucks Lovers”.

Taylor is by far the main event for the AMAs this weekend. They’ve dedicated an entire page to her on their website. This is understandable. After all, she just became the first woman in history to succeed herself on the Billboard Hot 100 as Blank Space took over from Shake It Off.  Read Full Intro

Charlie in VOGUE

Charlie Hunnam wasn’t at Comic-Con this year, the final year for Sons Of Anarchy. If you recall, to make up for his absence, a video was played in Hall H explaining why he couldn’t be there. I’m reposting in case you’ve forgotten. But, really, I just want you to get another shot of his ass: So he missed Comic-Con because he had to do a photo shoot for VOGUE. Full Story
