Girly Throw Downs Articles
Articles and photos throw-downs, catfights, b-tchslaps, and celebrity clashes.
If you haven’t grasped it by now, Harvey Weinstein is a very difficult figure in film. There is no denying his impact on the US movie industry, especially as a promoter of specialty and indie films, and his role as one of the central figures in the politicization of the Academy Awards. But he’s also got a reputation among filmmakers—has had for years—as a cut-happy editor who will gleefully slice your movie to ribbons in order to make it more marketable. Full Story
Click here if you missed my post on Monday about what Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter had to say about Gwyneth Paltrow trying to cockblock his magazine from featuring her. And click here for my post from way back in June when I was the first to report that it would be Vanessa Grigoriadis writing the article. Full Story

Every time I bitch about kitten heels, many of you bitch at me for hating on them. So we’re about to fight again today. Taylor Swift showed up at the premiere of Romeo & Juliet last night in support of her friend Hailee Steinfeld. Look at her feet. How f-cking annoying are these shoes? It’s a kitten heel, for starters. Full Story
Rihanna got into it over Twitter with Teyana Taylor. You remember Teyana Taylor? It was 2009. Teyana was the girl who sort of jacked Rihanna’s style back in 2009 and showed up at the NBA Finals with Chris Brown. Here, if you need a photo. She’s wearing white sunglasses. Full Story
You remember when Page Six first reported that Gwyneth declined Vanity Fair and was telling her friends all over the place not to do it? The NY Times is now confirming it. They were able to access an email from G to her people that read as follows: “Vanity Fair is threatening to put me on the cover of their magazine. Full Story
Miley Cyrus is supposedly collaborating with Kanye West. They have something in common: they're both always looking for a fight.
Yesterday Miley was Twitter-fighting a paparazzo and calling him a c-nt. You can see the tweet here. She also decided to throw down with Sklyer Gray, responding to a tweet from Gray on the night of the VMAs -- in other words, two weeks ago -- in which Gray told her to keep her tongue in her mouth.
Why so angry? She's been fronting like the backlash and drama after her performance didn't affect her at all. Pulling up a tweet from two weeks ago and girl sh-tting over it doesn’t exactly suggest that she’s unaffected. And she may very well end up deleting it too – which makes it even worse. The thing about a wrecking ball is that there’s no finesse. Being a bitch takes finesse. Right now, Miley’s just all raw.
TIFF is now! Click here to read my column in The Globe & Mail from last night’s party scene. Also I’m giving away tickets on Twitter to see Jake Gyllenhaal tonight – check it here. And a gifting lounge giveaway is coming up later.
Several new TIFF photo galleries have been posted on LifeStyle. Please refresh through the day for updates.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
I couldn’t sleep last night, so I read, but one of the things that made it a little easier was that I discovered a book I forgot I bought on the Kindle. This is obviously an occupational hazard of the Kindle phenomenon and I play right into it. I am basically very responsible with money but I buy books as though they’re free, and as though it doesn’t add up when you get two a day. Full Story
A fight broke out between Sean Daddy Puffy and J Cole on Sunday night at the VMA after-party. It was over Cassie, Diddy’s girlfriend. Who gives a sh-t? The point of this story is that Beysus was there. And when everyone got all aggro, she apparently started “screaming her head off”. Full Story

Inspired by a line in Tropic Thunder. Either you know it or you don’t. I started the VMAs on Team Taylor last night. The hair and makeup were good. The matching colour dress with her bff Selena Gomez was good. With an ex-boyfriend in the house and the girlfriend of an ex-boyfriend in the house, that’s how you do. Full Story

Do you remember much from 2009? Do you remember conversations and your favourite outfit and what you ate for lunch every day? I definitely don’t. But you know what I do remember? Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs – mostly because MTV and Taylor Swift don’t want us to forget it. Full Story
Earlier this week it was reported that Gwyneth Paltrow was a pain in the ass at Authors Night in the Hamptons. It was a charity event and G was there to sign copies of her book and raise money for the East Hampton Library. Christina Oxenberg was seated next to her at the signing table and blogged about how G’s fans and G’s bodyguards made it so that she eventually had to hide underneath the table eating meat products.

Apparently Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston were supposed to fly out to London on the same flight. When an airline employee noticed that they were both booked in first class, she alerted Aniston's people and Aniston ended up rescheduling. Stupid, stupid airline employee. Great gossip was thwarted by a stupid airline employee. Full Story
