Our Golden Globes coverage delayed this story… But how much did you love that Ricky Gervais opened on a Sean Penn joke on Sunday night? No matter how much you loved it, Sean Penn loved it the most. He f-cking LOVES that he was the one who went into the Mexican jungle and interviewed El Chapo, the drug lord. Full Story

Midday Mimi

It’s Wednesday. Midweek. I’m writing this midday. Am about to start our live episode of The Social, then I have to head up to shoot etalk, and finish up several blog posts, and I have an appointment tonight, and I need to go for a run later, so there are still hours, and hours, and hours to go. Full Story

Please tell me you’ve seen Creed. Creed was my favourite movie of 2015. It was on Sarah’s Top 10 of 2015 – click here if you missed that. And it was a box office success, honouring the Rocky franchise’s legacy and introducing it to a new generation. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I finally had a chance last night to check out Billy On The Street’s Escape From Scientology (thanks Kelly!). The video was released earlier this week and, well, I don’t want to say too much but Rachel Dratch has to make it through a harrowing Xenu-themed obstacle course.  Read Full Intro

Look at that smile

Shanice Williams was born in 1993. I Love Your Smile came out in 1991. It’s not preposterous to suggest that that might have been where her name came from. But now, when you hear the name, Shanice Williams is going to be the first one you think of. Especially if you’ve seen The Wiz. If you missed the original live broadcast, it should be on demand and they’re replaying it through the holidays, check your local listings. Full Story

Will you join me in some humour at the end of a long day, courtesy the CumHards? Because it’s after 5pm and I still have an interview to do for etalk, two hours to go, and I needed this, I really needed it. And crazy stupid fans are always, always good for some joy. A reader called Juliet just sent over an article about Benedict Cumberbatch’s CumHards and their conspiracy theories and how they tried to get the writer fired. Full Story

Is this an apology or a scolding?

I f-cking love Erykah Badu. Not only because you can’t f-ck with the Badu. And not only because she’s not a believer in Iggy Azalea. But also because when she’s apologising…well… she turns it into an occasion to guilt her kids. Yes. I approve of this parenting. Full Story

Tom Hardy and Leonardo DiCaprio were in London together yesterday at a BAFTA screening for The Revenant. All we hear from The Revenant is about Leo’s performance. And even though many experts are predicting that Tom will be recognised for his work with a Best Supporting Actor nomination, Leo’s been eating up all the headlines related to the film with all his meat eating, bear f-cking Full Story

Earlier this week I posted about Erykah Badu giving it to Iggy Azalea at the Soul Train Awards. As a refresher, here’s what that looked like: Iggy was off social media for a month. But the next day, she posted this tweet, seemingly in response to Badu’s side-eye: We are days from 2016, but i came online today and saw its still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. Full Story

Mimi Can’t Even

UPDATE: Have just been informed that this video is a fraud. So I’ve started drinking because it’s been a long ass 48 hours and I need some real joy. Can we all will this into reality? When I’m down and out, I have a go-to list of food items, books, movies, and moments that bring me out of the darkness, if only temporarily. Full Story
