Best of 2009: Johnny’s Birthday

Entertainment Weekly named him Best of the Decade. For damn sure. He totally owned it. Up and down and all around, with the arty pics and the big blockbusters, and the cool factor, and the transition – from tortured bad boy to enigmatic family man, no one is the Depp. And this video of his birthday – a cake being presented to him in June in Puerto Rico during the filming of The Rum Diary, he is so humbled, genuinely moved by the gesture, and gracious in accepting it. Full Story

Best of 2009: Porny at the Chili Cook-off!

Please. You know it was coming. There’s a special place in my heart for Jessica Simpson. She isn’t evil inside like Ebola Hilton. Porny’s issues stem from her father’s f-ckery, and the lack of true friendship and brain mass. But she’s not ill intentioned. There is genuine affection here. Full Story

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 31, 2009 08:30:09 December 31, 2009 08:30:09

It’s a famine of beauty, honey! My eyes are stahving for beauty!This was my ringtone for a few months earlier in the year. Oh Andre Leon Talley. Oh Anna Wintour. Or Grace f-cking brilliant Coddington… It’s not just the quote, it’s every minute of The September Issue. Full Story

Worst of 2009: Ed Westwick at Teen Choice

You’ve blocked it out, haven’t you? My Shamef-ck showed up at Teen Choice in August shamef-cking me to hell in his rolled up jeans and no socks and loafers, puckering his lips and posing like a cross dressing private school punk ballerina stuck inside a music box, what? I don’t know what. Full Story

Best of 2009: Belligerate!

I was originally planning to write one massive Twi-Hard hatemail post to commemorate their email amazingness over the last year but then new photos of Robert Pattinson emerged today so why not split them up, highlighting some of the best? I wonder if you’ve forgotten some of their gems. Pattinson was spotted in London with his sister, having spent time with family for the holiday. Full Story

Best of 2009: Neil Patrick Harris

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 24, 2009 08:22:37 December 24, 2009 08:22:37

He was everywhere, but not too much. He was nominated but didn’t win. He is nominated for a Golden Globe but will not host the show. He did however host the Tony Awards and the Emmy Awards and totally owned both nights and looked really, really handsome doing it. This was a year for Neil Patrick Harris. Full Story

Worst of 2009: Robo Dance

For weeks she was at the dance studio, and the paps were waiting, and the publicists were whipping us all into an anticipatory frenzy – Katie Holmes to perform on So You Think You Can Dance! Then she went to Australia to film a new movie… What? Oh, so it was pre-taped. Right. Well at least she looked good. Full Story

Best of 2009: Kristen Stewart steeze

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 23, 2009 08:53:57 December 23, 2009 08:53:57

Apart from that dumbass Harper’s Bazaar shoot for the Sears catalogue which was totally not her fault, Kristen Stewart made very few missteps this year on and off the carpet. Not everyone can pull off a Joan Jett mullet the way Kristen Stewart pulls off a mullet – with a middle finger in the face of those who insist that girls should wear pretty bows and ringlets. Full Story

Best of 2009: American Sweetheart BitchFace

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 22, 2009 15:32:47 December 22, 2009 15:32:47

Nothing like a bitchface that lies underneath the milk and honey. And for so many it’s so hard to believe. Because most of her characters have such sunny dispositions. Again, why is it that people can easily accept that politicians are liars and never the actors when the actors PRETEND TO BE SOMEONE ELSE for a living? In university one of my favourite political science courses was a 2nd year elective on The American Presidents. Full Story

Worst of 2009: Clingy SJP

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 22, 2009 08:17:15 December 22, 2009 08:17:15

It was the un-fun Photo Assumption, images of a wife apparently so grateful that her husband simply agreed to go out with her two nights in a row she could not conceal her gratitude and relief and insecurity on the carpet, even as photographers were shooting away. It was April 2009. And there had been many months of speculation that Matthew Broderick was stepping out on their marriage. Full Story

Best & Worst 2009: The attempted strangling of RP

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 21, 2009 16:10:09 December 21, 2009 16:10:09

Worst obviously because those crazy bitches could have hurt him, undeterred by the piss poor security, and best obviously because for those of us who are endlessly amused by the Twi-Hardery, this was some funny sh-t. Many of you were initially skeptical about all that hatemail – when you are sane, it’s difficult to imagine the behaviour of those who are very much not sane. Full Story
