And she’s talking about it. She’s talking a lot of sh-t about it. God bless her, you know? God. Bless. Her. Mimi was interviewed on the radio and asked about her Idol experience. She was candid: it was hell for her. And Nicki Minaj was Satan. But what makes this so entertaining is not that she’s still picking a fight but why she was so unhappy to begin with. Full Story

Thespian drama! How British is this sh*t? Today news has broken that Emma Thompson has forgiven Helena Bonham-Carter for having an affair with Kenneth Branagh. The story goes that back in the ‘90s these three were involved in the most English love triangle since crumpets, marmalade and tea, with Helena and Kenneth boning on the set of Frankenstein, effectively destroying his 6 year marriage to Emma. Full Story

Have I mentioned how much I love her? Maybe not. I’m sorry. I f-cking LOVE Annie Lennox. No More I Love Yous is one my favourite songs forever. Annie was at the Music Industry Trust Awards in London last night. With her two daughters Lola and Tali. This is tripping me out. Annie Lennox, to me, is always going to be 30 years old. Full Story

Julia Roberts turned 46 on Monday. She was papped going to yoga yesterday. Have you noticed Julia’s been getting papped more lately? Not a lot. Not too much. But she could go months without being shot and now, now it’s slowwwwwwwly building up in frequency. Coincidence or conspiracy? When’s the last time you watched this clip? It’s actually been a while for me. Full Story

This is the cover art for Mariah Carey’s new single The Art of Letting Go. And here’s Mimi this weekend at the BET event. If only we could all be invited to watch a Mimi photo shoot. Photo shoots take a lot of time as it is. They’re constantly messing around with the light, futzing around with the angles, a photo shoot is tedious. Full Story

I love this video. But I love every Mimi video. This time Mimi is talking about herself. I’m not sure why I had to tell you that. What else would she be talking about? Well… When she tries to talk about why dembabies are special, she actually can’t get out the words. When Mimi has to talk about anything other than Mimi, she can’t articulate. Full Story

I’ve been waiting a while for new photos to post of Nicolas Cage. Like 3 months, actually. That’s how long it’s been since his awesome interview with The Guardian  in July. I mean, this is what you want in a Movie Star. They water them down too often these days. Full Story

Julia Roberts was honoured with the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award last night at the Hollywood Film Awards. Sean Penn was her presenter. He was in a good mood for her. And when she went up on stage to accept, she took her shoes off. Of course she did. Penn’s “playful” introduction of her was followed by a clip from August: Osage County. Full Story
