Written by Jacek That’s probably not a common sentiment unless you live there and are loyal to your city. For years Lainey has been flying down to LA, whether it was for junkets or to cover the Oscars for eTalk. And each time I passed because I knew she’d be tied up in production meetings and shoots, and because everyone I talked to said LA sucked and they hate going. Full Story

No doubt, it was the very best story this week. At least to me. Salma Hayek’s snake drama, a video watched over and over and over again. Because it gets funnier and funnier every time. After crushing Maya Rudolph’s lap with her stilettos, and wailing her way into our hearts, Salma is now in Paris, spotted yesterday looking like she’s still suffering from the trauma. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were in New York this afternoon at Times Square unveiling her billboard for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. JLo is promoting the message “Be Extraordinary” as an ambassador for the organisation’s youth advocacy campaign and the image they used features no Oprah lighting, no hair fan, no Scott Barnes makeup but rather an old photo of her back from her school days, in plaits and an uneven fringe with a starched collar under a plaid dress. Full Story

Many of you have forwarded this video and I wanted to write about it yesterday but every time I watch it, I need to take a break for an hour. I am afraid to watch it today. But it’s so F-CKING AMAZING. Like, the best 45 seconds of my LIFE. I don’t want to spoil it for those of you who haven’t yet had the extreme pleasure. Full Story

I went to see the original Karate Kid with my dad after he took me for pancakes at the Golden Griddle. It was a great day. I want to see the new Karate Kid soon. Can’t explain why. Just makes me feel good. I’m trying not to cry every time I see the trailer. There is something about Jackie Chan and how hard he wants it, and his face, a face I’ve known my entire life being a child of Hong Kong immigrants, and how it’s the same and only older, I find it so emotionally endearing. Full Story

The opposite of the Stewart Pattinson effort. Sandra Bullock is an entertainer. Sandra Bullock always entertains. That kissing bit with Scarlett? It’s not the actual kiss, it’s what led up to the kiss that made it. The timing, the delivery, their chemistry... See? THIS is performing. It was adorable. Full Story

He doesn't make me quiver but he always me...happy. I can't look at Russell Brand - ever - and not smile. Or laugh. Mostly laugh. This, I suspect, is what happens with Katy Perry every day. So here's Russell in New York today, giving us some chest action while promoting Get Him to the Greek, opening this weekend and, so far, generating some really, really great reviews. Full Story

An armed guard service met Team England at the airport today in South Africa as the squad has now arrived in advance of the World Cup beginning June 11th. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you probably know I’m an anglophile. So this is partly why I’ll be following the English side, yes. Full Story

Well...he’s not Jakey. It’s because he’s too earnest about it. And then when he fronts like it’s all loose and fun and easy, it’s hard to believe he’s unclenched. Is he ever unclenched? This is Tom Cruise with will.i.am doing interviews yesterday, several of them, to begin promotion for Knight & Day. Full Story

It’s her

Ten days ago I wrote about Elisabetta Canalis on Twitter. At the time it wasn’t slamdunk. Many of you totally bought it, others remained sceptical. Would George Clooney really allow his Italian Queen to participate in a medium he has on several occasions said that he abhors? It seemed unlikely. Full Story

Written by Sarah It’s Maddona! Looking like Madonna! For the first time in what feels like a hundred years, here’s Madonna looking like herself, instead of a frightening lizard person. This is the Madonna I love. Weird clothes no one else could ever wear, exiting a nightclub (Aurora in London) in the wee hours of the morning surrounded by bodyguards and paparazzi. Full Story
