One of my favourite Golden Globe moments of all time happened at one of the after-parties in 2011. My etalk colleague Jessi Cruickshank was covering that carpet. And when Mark Wahlberg arrived with his wife, she asked him about Justin Bieber. Which resulted in the most amazing cut-eye bitch-face from Mrs Wahlberg, Rhea Durham. Full Story

We’re not starting with the People’s Choice Awards today. Today we begin with Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp, because I’ve just finished reading the Rolling Stone article Meg sent over earlier this week and it’s probably the best celebrity profile of the year, even though the year just started. Full Story

The alarm went off this morning. I dropped my eyes. I picked up my phone. There was a text from Duana: “Can we just have a weekly column called f-ck off Aaron Sorkin?!?” Then I opened my browser. And there it was. Aaron Sorkin’s latest f-ck off moment, this time comparing male and female award-winning roles and declaring that it’s a higher “degree of difficulty” for the men. Full Story

Between the Sony hack and the Golden Globes nominations (and snubs), it’s been a great week for gossip. So why are we talking about Ashton Kutcher? Oh, right, because he had a baby. Ashton was on Ellen (what was he promoting – the end of his sh-tty ass sexist stupid sitcom?) and the focus of the interview was the baby and how he and Mila take care of the baby. Full Story

On Friday Rupert Murdoch, elderly white man, took to Twitter to address the whitewashing casting controversy that has surrounded the upcoming movie Exodus: Gods & Guyliner. Christian Bale plays Moses, a Hebrew, Joel Edgerton is the Egyptian pharaoh Ramses, and Sigourney Weaver is their mother, Tuya, also Egyptian. Full Story

Katy Perry donated $10,000 to a school in Australia for her This Is How We Do school competition in Australia. I like the song, in spite of myself. But…have you ever listened to the lyrics? I’m not sure if this is the song you want representing youth engagement. Roar would have been better, hmmm? She’s still a Roar fraud but at least on surface sentiment, it’s definitely more appropriate. Full Story

I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Johnny Depp’s behaviour on stage at the Hollywood Film Awards. They should thank him for acting the fool during the show. Because that was the only moment worth talking about. It became a social media moment too as everyone started tweeting about what a mess he was on stage. Full Story

You know the bad blood between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, right? Taylor even wrote a song about it. Girl Sh-t Is The Best Sh-t, but some Girl Sh-t is embarrassing…because, God, this is over John Mayer. What a waste. Katy is now dating Diplo. And yesterday, Diplo, seemingly out of nowhere, tweeted this:   Get Taylor Swift A Booty https://t.co/RpkB8JExSV Full Story

There’s an epidemic in Hollywood, a rash spreading through production offices like a bad case of pink eye, and it’s the trend of dumb subtitles given to franchise pictures. My #1 stupid title punching bag is Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which I call Superhero Face Punch because that is clearly a better, more to-the-point title. Full Story

Lainey sent me the Billboard article about Meghan Trainor because she likes to see me rage. HEADLINE:  “I don’t consider myself a feminist” CONTEXTUAL QUOTE:  "I don't consider myself a feminist, but I'm down for my first opportunity to say something to the world to be so meaningful. Full Story
