Yesterday Coldplay announced a new single on the way next week called Christmas Lights. Yesterday they were out in London shooting what’s apparently a new music video accompanied by some Elvis impersonators. Needless to say, new material from the band is being greeted with relief from the recording industry, in various states of panic over the last year re: low sales. Full Story

OMG. So good. SO GOOD! As mentioned earlier, my friend M alerted me to the latest this morning. But here’s the background. For over a year now everyone has been talking about Nicki Minaj. Minaj’s new album dropped this week. And deservingly so. Minaj’s new album just dropped but she’s already had a #1 single and several entries on the charts, and the support of almost every major player in the industry. Full Story

Favourite photos of the day. Rupert Grint was photographed at Heathrow today carting along a Japanese Toilet Seat. No, for real. According to the photo agency, this Japanese Toilet “offers features such as slow closing, electronic bidet, and warm heated seat”. OMG. Is this what I need for my poo problem? Part of it is totally psychological for me. Full Story

Did you download Kanye West’s new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? I did. And I’m really into it. Haven’t been able to go through it over and over again yet, but on first play it’s good. Some would even say it’s great. Even the critics. Almost unanimously. Which is an accomplishment in and of itself since, well, he’s not exactly Mr Popular with the media. Full Story

I’ve bitched about it before: cash bar weddings. Relax. I’m not saying everyone has to pay for a splashy wedding. I’m not saying that if you marry in the church hall where your parents used to play and it’s a lovely, intimate affair that this applies to you. I’m just saying if you’re inviting a hundred + people, and that dress is a statement, and the venue is somewhere supposedly all class, and your wedding photography is choreographed like an advertisement for stationary, a cash bar wedding is the total sh-ts. Full Story

“In case you're wondering, Travolta is a bottom.” This might be my favourite sentence of all time. Thanks to all of you who’ve sent it along. I read it while eating my lunch – Gawker’s article on the Secret Sex Live of John Travolta – and I don’t think I want to read anything else all day. Full Story

On days when I need a quick pick-me-up, I have list of Happy Shots. Images that instantly and reliably make me laugh. Jessica Simpson’s high waisted horrors, Tom Cruise looking like he’s having a wank in Rolling Stone, Liza Minnelli and David Gest’s wedding photo, there are about a dozen of them that always do the job. Full Story

On Monday night in New York, Kanye West received the ACE Award for Stylemaker of the Year. He was there in person to accept and, well, not surprisingly, had some sh-t to say. Here’s what I don’t understand when I hear people complaining about Kanye West. He’s a douche! He’s an asshole! Ugh, he should just shut up! But why? Kanye is like Mimi: ALWAYS ENTERTAINMENT. Full Story

Did you watch our Mimi on Ellen yesterday? Did you see the amazingness? It’s 7 minutes of amazingness as only Mimi can deliver it. From the moment she waddle-tottered onto the set, Mimi kept going, and it’s hard, you know? It’s hard to decide the highpoint of the interview because, since it’s Mimi, there are so many. Full Story

It’s the news that isn’t news. Just a week or so before the release of her new Christmas album, Mimi has confirmed that she and Nick Cannon are indeed expecting. As my mother would say, “I’m so exciting.” If you have immigrant parents, you know exactly how hilarious that is, when they f-ck up their verb conjugations. Full Story
