Rabbit Hole screened here at TIFF on Monday to largely positive reviews, many saying it’s Nicole Kidman’s best film in a few years. Well that’s encouraging. Because as I’ve always said, despite my disdain for the marbleisation of her face, I do enjoy Gran’s acting. I do think she is very, very talented. Full Story

I don’t hate on Megan Fox as hard as other people. She says dumb sh-t. She has a weird pretend face. She’s crazy and temperamental. But I have more time for Megan than, say, Shelfy. Which doesn’t mean I love her, of course not. Just that, well, now and again I am capable of saying nice things about her. Full Story

Written by Duana The ominous and much hyped reappearance of Kanye....after mixing meticulously on his sample board that looks like he whitewashed a Fisher-Price something, he goes into it. Toast for the douche bags, toast for the assholes, goats for the scumbags, toast for the jerkoffs - none of them bleeped, I notice. Full Story

Madonna continues to direct W.E. in London. She also wrote the script... Anyway, Lourdes has been with her mom almost constantly on set – she even has a walk on role – obviously eager to follow in the family business. Has been for a while. Madonna raising a teenager - there are a lot of things I don’t love about Madonna right now but this, this I love so much. Full Story

The best is generous

Love her so f-cking much. There’s a reason why Stephen King, and so many J.K. Rowling fans, took such offence to those early dumbass comparisons between Harry Potter and Twilight. One is gold, the other is ass, and it’s incredibly insulting to Jo’s great talent and her legacy to put her in the same sentence as that silly Stephenie Meyer. Full Story

Studs through security

As always, committed to her image, Lady Gaga departed Vancouver after two shows this weekend dressed in leather, studs, and rhinestones. Actually rather tame by her standards. Gaga posed with fans before heading to the gate, through security, where her metals had to be further examined. I love these photos so much, standing there on tiptoe loaded up with spikes, it’s amazing in its ridiculousness. Full Story

Every year Karl Lagerfeld summers in St Tropez. Even artistic geniuses need some downtime. But his muse is never far away. Because the artistic genius never takes a break. So here he is, the Karl with Baptiste, going for a stroll on the boulevard, and then, oh just a little swing time, we all need a little swing time, non? After that it was over to the Chanel exhibit where, as noted in this f-cking AMAZING image caption detail: Baptiste does what he does best, models for and inspires Karl Lagerfeld. Full Story

Drama has great timing

Whenever she was in a spot of trouble, when things weren’t going her away, Elizabeth Taylor had the uncanny ability to summon an illness. And this was no fake cancer bullsh-t, oh no. Elizabeth’s ailments were always legitimate and often life threatening. She would conjure the health drama and almost die (she almost died a lot) and everyone would love her again and pray for her life, and there would be candlelight vigils, and she’d survive, and re-emerge on top. Full Story

So much James Franco

I feel about James Franco the way we’re apt to feel about an old boyfriend – don’t want to get with that anymore but (and don’t lie) you want to know the goods: what does he do, did he gain weight, is there a girl/wife, is she as cute as I am? In Franco’s case, even though he’s no longer at the top of the Five List, the curiosity is still there, and it’s not like he’s receded from the spotlight either. Full Story

Robert Pattinson sings in a room

Not bad. Pretty sounds good when he sings, non? He sings better than he acts although that’s probably not fair since so far his acting has been limited to Twilight and, well, there’s not much he can do with that sh-t. Video below: Robert Pattinson was recorded performing in a room as part of a project called Songs From A Room in support of emerging artists. Full Story

Kanye on Chanel, fonts, and chances

Kanye’s Twitter is, as he would say, totally my sh-t right now. Love it so much. At first I thought it would get contrived and soon. I mean, how long can you sustain 140 characters of brilliance without overthinking it. But he doesn’t. Full Story
