It’s going to be a big weekend for Justin Bieber. Remember a few years ago how pissy he and Scooter Braun were about not being nominated for a Grammy? Well, JB’s performing at the Grammys. And he’s nominated for a Grammy. Maybe more. There are so many categories I can’t be bothered to check how many. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

As you’ve seen, Miley Cyrus covers the new issue of Marie Claire. As already covered, most of the initial reaction to her interview had to do with what she said about Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video – click here for a refresher.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen Britney. The first time I saw her you could feel her “it” as soon as she stepped out of the car. That was her time. No one could deny that she had that superstar quality. The last few times I’ve seen her, well, it was dead eyes and not so fresh. Full Story

I am still not sick of Nick Jonas’s Jealous. And it’s been soooo long. But no, not tired of it. Not at all. You know who I am tired of though? And this will bring the hate, I’m sure: Ed Sheeran. Sorry. I hate that song about loving you at 73 or whatever. CAN’T STAND IT. Anyway, Nick is big. Full Story

A few years ago, Kevin Jonas announced the birth of his daughter via a sponsored tweet. Since then, there’ve been several pee-stick announcements sponsored by pregnancy tests. Basically, there is no shame in the parental pimp game anymore. Is sponsorship even tacky anymore? Is there any part of pregnancy or parenthood that we aren’t part of? It’s become so saturated that we’re completely immune to the non-story stories, “Ryan Gosling is the best dad ever!” “5 Reasons JT will be the best dad ever!” “Jennifer’s Hopelessly in Love with her Baby!” They don’t mean anything anymore, and with increasing avenues for celebrity parents to share their children (like social media), along with the increase in demand for “baby” anything, the stories get more threadbare. Full Story

Yesterday, a short post on Lindsay and Dina Lohan showed up on TMZ, and it involved Dina selling Lindsay’s stuff - shoes, clothes, furniture, artwork – that is being stored at Dina’s house. Basically, the Lohans have entered Judge Judy territory. If you watched the docuseries Lindsay, aka “Lindsay smokes and bitches about moving,” you’ll know that she has a lot of sh-t. Full Story
