Inspired by a line in Tropic Thunder. Either you know it or you don’t. I started the VMAs on Team Taylor last night. The hair and makeup were good. The matching colour dress with her bff Selena Gomez was good. With an ex-boyfriend in the house and the girlfriend of an ex-boyfriend in the house, that’s how you do. Full Story

Do you remember much from 2009? Do you remember conversations and your favourite outfit and what you ate for lunch every day? I definitely don’t. But you know what I do remember? Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift at the VMAs – mostly because MTV and Taylor Swift don’t want us to forget it. Full Story

They backpedal for Gwyneth

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 15, 2013 13:17:52 August 15, 2013 13:17:52

Earlier this week it was reported that Gwyneth Paltrow was a pain in the ass at Authors Night in the Hamptons. It was a charity event and G was there to sign copies of her book and raise money for the East Hampton Library. Christina Oxenberg was seated next to her at the signing table and blogged about how G’s fans and G’s bodyguards made it so that she eventually had to hide underneath the table eating meat products. Full Story

Apparently Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston were supposed to fly out to London on the same flight. When an airline employee noticed that they were both booked in first class, she alerted Aniston's people and Aniston ended up rescheduling. Stupid, stupid airline employee. Great gossip was thwarted by a stupid airline employee. Full Story

As reported yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow was at the Author’s Night fundraiser in the Hamptons this weekend with Chris Martin and her kids to sign copies of her book. Christina Oxenberg was the author placed beside G at the signing table. Oxenberg wrote about the experience here Full Story

And Kate and Marion and how many others? It was reported yesterday that Meryl Streep will not be contending for Best Actress Oscar this year. Instead, her performance in August: Osage County will be submitted in the supporting category which means that she and Julia Roberts won’t be going head to head against each other but that she will be going head to head on Oprah Winfrey for her role in The Butler. Full Story

Today in things that make me laugh, Ashton Kutcher has made a statement implying that we live in a world where he knows better than George Clooney about something, anything. In response to George Clooney’s amazingly direct and on-point observation Full Story

MTV vs. Colbert Nation

Sarah Posted by Sarah at August 7, 2013 15:43:54 August 7, 2013 15:43:54

If you’re a big media outlet whose sole job is to look cool and hip then you really shouldn’t tangle with a top-notch, widely popular comedian with a big-ass network microphone. That’s a new rule I just made up. Stephen Colbert has been hyping the appearance of Daft Punk on his show, The Colbert Report, for weeks, so imagine the surprise when he opened his show last night and announced that Daft Punk would not be appearing because MTV, a fellow Viacom subsidiary, didn’t want Daft Punk’s surprise appearance at the VMAs in a month’s time to be undermined by them going on a different show beforehand. Full Story

Macho Man Boy Sh-t

Girl Sh-t Is The Best Sh-t. And Boy Sh-t Is The Best Sh-t… No matter the age. Even if it’s middle age. Or senior citizens. Sylvester Stallone is 67. Can we call him a senior citizen? Sly and Bruce Willis worked together on the two Expendables. I’ve not seen either one but I will assume that there are guns and explosions and a lot of one liners like, “Look at my dick attached to my AK47”. Full Story

As you’ve probably heard by now, Leah Remini broke up with the Church of Scientology. Apparently she’d been questioning Church practices, specifically the leadership of Tom Cruise’s BFF David Miscavige, the megalomaniacal head of Scientology, and asking too many questions about his wife, who’s allegedly been missing for a few years, even though Church officials insist she’s safe and doing Xenu’s work. Full Story

Honestly, Jessica Alba: Part 2

Maria Posted by Maria at July 30, 2013 14:45:21 July 30, 2013 14:45:21

Back in April, I wrote about Jessica Alba and The Honest Company acting like jerks towards a satirical parenting blog, The Honest Toddler. Click here for a refresher. At the time, The Honest Company took issue with the use of “honest,” but a mini social media backlash supporting The Honest Toddler quickly formed, and Alba & Co quickly backpedalled and even gave the blog a gift pack to give a reader. Full Story
