There are stars, and then there are stars, you know? Even though Emma Stone's had a good few years and a REALLY good 2011, she hasn't had that defining role... yet. The one everyone remembers as equal parts incredible acting and indelibly her. I'm sure she's getting scripts, but she's usually a variation on a Sassy Quirky Truth Teller. Full Story

It was at the Brit Awards last year that Adele delivered such an exquisite performance, bringing all of us to tears, of Someone Like You that started it all. So now it’s complete. Adele was the big winner at the BRIT Awards last night. And it doesn’t look like she actually changed her dress from the Grammy Awards. Full Story

She loves her life. That’s obvious. She was so delighted with her producers and the adorable boyfriend who was sort of affably out of the whole thing.  She screeched at her mum in her South London twang, and if you haven’t watched her 60 minutes interview with Anderson you need to get on that, because no two people who are media professionals have spent so much time giggling together on camera. Full Story

They’re considering a Bridesmaids sequel without Kristen Wiig. This is what almost everyone was focusing on yesterday. The detail that gets lost in that headline though is that Kristen Wiig didn’t want to do it. And, well, don’t you love her for that? When asked about making another Bridesmaids, Wiig told The Hollywood Reporter Full Story

Still not convinced that Meryl Streep will finally win her 3rd Oscar for The Iron Lady. So many people are fanning themselves over the brilliance of her performance as Margaret Thatcher and I’m always happy to hop on a Meryl bandwagon, totally, but ...

Dear Gossips,

I keep loving Emma Stone more and more. So much that I almost want her to do something medium annoying, just to manage expectations, like a pause in her ascent, to prevent the hasty and inevitable opposite that happens to all of them who become too popular, too perfect.  Read Full Intro

The news is that Aisha Tyler has been tapped to be the new cohost on “The Talk”. This is a show I’ve never seen.   I’ve heard the controversy about it, I’m aware of the exit of Xenu lovers and others.   I cannot speak at all to whether or not this show has a chance now of being a quality program. Full Story
