It’s Jennifer Aniston’s birthday tomorrow and for the last two weeks we’ve been forced to celebrate along with her. America’s Sweetheart has suddenly become the MiniVan Majority’s poster-woman for 40, screaming at full volume: that 40 is better than 20! 40 can be fit and fresh, glowing and gorgeous…that is, if you live by the beach, and you get months and months off work several times a year, you have a Pilates studio in your house, your delicious low calorie meals are delivered three times a day, your stylist is on call for a blowout even if you’re just going to visit a friend, you’ve never had children, and you don’t spend half your day running after said children. Full Story

Almost 20 million viewers tuned into the Grammy Awards last night which represented an increase of 11% compared to last year… CBS today is celebrating a huge success. Who to thank? How long will we have to wait for Pipsqueak Justin Timberlake to take the credit? You know how he is… He took credit the last time the Grammys killed the ratings. Full Story

Victoria Beckham en route from LA to London yesterday in yet another comfortable travel ensemble. It’s her husband who’s been in the news this week – Becks has publicly declared that he wants to stay in Milan and finish his career in Europe. This of course leaves the LA Galaxy to decide whether or not to allow this. Full Story

This must be their mission. Like how some people collect sand from every beach they visit, or a matchbook, or a one night stand, everyone has a travel ritual. For the GMD and his KatE, I wonder if their travel ritual involves The Presentation. He must Present Her at every destination, in every city. Full Story

It’s just a luncheon

The Oscar nominees’ luncheon went down yesterday – no Meryl, no Brange. Meryl doesn’t have time to fly all the way in from New York for a luncheon. She’s Meryl Streep. And it’s like her 15th time, right? But why no Brange, since they’ve been campaigning so heavily for so long? Well, the Slumdog backlash has been working hard for them already. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston on the carpet last night at the premiere of He’s Just Not That Into You. A rare miss. Because you know the Aniston. The hair, the body, the tan, the glow…the Aniston is always working, the Aniston always looks good, the Aniston can’t afford not to look good. She doesn’t have much else. Full Story

Ricky Gervais should host the Oscars. Hugh will be wonderful. But next year, why not Ricky? Ricky’s irreverence would rip all of them, all the famewhores, each and every one, a new asshole…starting with Ebola and Posh. In an open letter to President Obama, Ricky writes: “As I'm sure you are aware, one of your flock has strayed. Full Story

Valkyrie opens in Brazil this week so Tom Cruise and his family arrived a few days early to spend some time relaxing in Rio de Janeiro, followed constantly by their security team and the paps and screaming fans, all of which seemed to irritate the adorable Little Sci, pictured holding her hands over her ears while her father grins like a hyena for photographers. Full Story

The Jolie was centre stage yesterday in Tokyo at a presser for The Changeling and like the last time she wore grey, as you can see, totally gorgeous. Also putting to rest the speculation that she keeps wearing oversized togas on awards show red carpets because she’s trying to hide her alleged super skinniness. Full Story

Yesterday it was Scarlett Johansson vanity singing. Today, it’s that Pipsqueak Justin Timberlake vanity acting. He sat down for an interview with Katie Couric to promote the Grammys – because only HE can increase Grammy ratings! – and they discussed everything from Timbaland, to Madonna, to SNL, to Beyonce, and yes… His acting. Full Story
