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

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

But nobody seemed to tell him that. While filming Trans4mers in Hong Kong, Bay was approached—on set!—by two Chinese brothers who demanded he pay them HK$100,000 and the argument ended with one of the brothers assaulting Bay and three police officers before being arrested. Bay was injured but wasn’t taken to the hospital. Full Story

JLO maybe maybe not breaking up with Slum Bears is not the story here. The REAL JLO breakup story is about her assistant. JLO’s assistant, Gilly Iyer, (is that hard “G” because if so this is AWESOME), who worked with her for years, quit recently to join Jermaine Dupri’s team. Full Story

I mean, it’s a no-brainer. Isn’t it? Tina and Amy have done the impossible – they’ve secured hosting spots for the Golden Globes for the next two years in a row. They were awesome, everyone agreed. They were awesome because they A) Didn’t pull any punches – they left everything on the floor; and B) Were equal opportunity offenders – Taylor Swift jokes weren’t the only ones that landed (they’re just the ones that everyone remembers some 10 months later); and finally, and most importantly… C) They didn’t f*cking care if you liked it. Full Story

Because Mimi just wrote us an open letter, updating us on what’s been our primary concern – f*ck the prorogue, f-ck the government shutdown, f-ck everything…MIMI WAS INJURED. Full Story

This story on Page Six made me laugh today. So Madonna went to the screening of 12 Years A Slave the other night at the New York Film Festival. According to a Page Six source: A spy said that as the movie began, “a blonde in black lace gloves wouldn’t stop texting,” seated in a row with Jason Ritter, J. Full Story

Mimi is a giver. A very specific kind of giver. She gives by …not really doing anything but being herself. That’s how generous she is, you know? What’s that like if you’re her husband? It’s Nick Cannon’s birthday today. He’s now 33. And here’s what his wife posted for him on her Twitter, with the caption: Happy Birthday to my Hubby @NickCannon. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re a fan of yourself.” – Kanye West

No idea. Do you know what that means? Wait, don’t answer that. Don’t even bother to think about that. It doesn’t matter. Because the point isn’t to make sense of it. The point is to ENJOY it. And you have to enjoy Kanye. Kanye is, officially, a better interview that Karl Lagerfeld now.

Have you seen the Kanye interview with Zane Lowe on BBC1? I’ve taken my time with it this week – it’s been busy, sure, but also, for this particular interview, you can’t multi-task, you know? You have to focus, completely, on what he’s saying AND on how his face is moving for the full, awesomely ridiculous effect. It’s WONDERFUL. He’s WONDERFUL.  Read Full Intro

Jessica Simpson’s been pretty quiet lately. She had her son. She sold her son’s photos to US Weekly. She’s kept a low profile, perhaps getting Weight Watchers ready for her next “your self-worth is on your scale” campaign. Last night Porny went out for dinner with her freeloader and her daughter. Full Story

I want you to join me in being thankful for what Paula gave us last night. I want you to be thankful that someone came to give us the fun. To give us some pure joy. To remind us that these nights, they are for entertainment, for OUR entertainment. They tell you they want to celebrate their achievements, but they’re incapable of celebrating them without an audience. Full Story
