Reunion! 16 years later, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Selma Blair got together yesterday at the Cruel Intentions musical which is spreading all kinds of 90s joy around the internet today. I am also participating. Because as I’ve mentioned before – click here Full Story

Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of this: It’s still funny and crazy and everything. And its impact on the career of then the biggest movie star in the world is still a fascinating discussion. But Tom jumping on Oprah’s couch is more than just Classic Gossip. That moment has real historical significance. Full Story

Last night on The Voice, Christina Aguilera did a spoof of different pop stars auditioning to be a judge (she is of course a judge on the show). She played Cher, Miley, Sia, Shakira, Lady Gaga and the one everyone is talking about, Britney Spears. Britney and Christina go way back; they started in the Mickey Mouse Club together and Britney exploded just as Christina was coming on to the scene. Full Story

Nostalgia factory to grind up The Craft

The cocaine fueled Everything Is A Good Idea 1990s era of filmmaking produced some of the most insane garbage in the history of cinema. Every decade has its share of bad movies, except the 1990s. In the 90s, “bad” as a category was replaced with “Jesus Christ, how much blow did you DO?”  Everything that came out in that decade is so goddamn weird that there is a movie for every niche, like The Craft, which fills the Teenage Occult Power Fantasy square on the 1990’s What The F*CK Is This Even? bingo card. Full Story

As I mentioned yesterday, Miley Cyrus was in New York last night performing at the Adult Swim upfront party. Then she went out to party with Bella Hadid and Scout Willis. And her nipples were all over the place. Get over it. In other Miley news, her focus lately has been on launching Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit aimed to raise awareness for LGBT homeless, at-risk and LGBT youth and collaborating with other artists in a series of Backyard Sessions in support of the charity. Full Story

Julia Roberts always gets the last word, so it makes sense that she would get David Letterman’s last kiss before next Wednesday’s big sign-off. After all, she is his favourite guest. He admitted it back in 2001 and he was clearly just as smitten last night. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I spend my nights listening to Brandon Flowers, creeping him online. Wait. Can you call it creeping when you don’t bother hiding it? Jacek will come up from the basement, see me on my laptop, and know right away. “Are you perving out on Brandon Flowers again?” YES.

It’s bad right now. My problem is bad. Especially since these new songs are SO good, particularly to those of us who grew up 80s. Erasure, Depeche Mode, New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Duran Duran…this is actually how hard I had it for Simon Le Bon back in the day. Little 12 year old me drawing hearts all over his face. I used to write letters on official Duran Duran Fan Club stationery. (F-ck. Why didn’t I save some of that?) Brandon Flowers is taking me there. And if you’re of that time, I’m telling you, his new album will take you there too.  Read Full Intro

Katy Perry changed wigs after the MET Gala on Monday night and hit up on the after-parties with designer Jeremy Scott…and then John Mayer was spotted arriving right behind her. So Diplo is not a thing. The thing is still Katy and John. Some people deserve each other, you know? And I mean that in the best way. Full Story

Renee Zellweger: one man, one hairstyle

Renee Zellweger stepped out with her boyfriend Doyle Bramhall last night at an event to support the ALS Association in Pasadena. By all accounts it’s a stable, drama-free relationship. She looks happy. She looks healthy. She also appears to be favouring just one hairstyle these days: a fringed topknot. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

US Weekly remembered it yesterday – an important milestone in the History of Gossip:

A shot of Brange on the beach in Africa, playing with young Maddox, 10 years ago on April 19th, 2005. It was confirmation that they were indeed together. That 3 months after he and Jennifer Aniston broke up, he and Angelina were ready to change the game. Or, rather, SHE was ready to change the game. Because we all know now that that photographer didn’t just get lucky, hanging out in Kenya on the random. She made the arrangements, Brange became the conversation, Mr & Mrs Smith was released two months later, followed by 5 more children, and a decade worth of headlines, magazine covers, and endless speculation.  Read Full Intro

I had it bad for Josh Hartnett for a while. It was after seeing 40 Days And 40 Nights. Why didn’t Shannyn Sossamon become a bigger deal? She has a PERFECT face. God I wanted to look like her. I think I still want to look like her. I certainly wanted to be her. Back to back makeout work opportunities with Heath Ledger and Josh Hartnett? Come on. Full Story

Whatever Happened to Mischa Barton?

Mischa Barton is in a strange spot career-wise. She’s not old enough to be “forgotten” but she’s not relevant enough to come up as a casting choice. Basically her trade is horror movies and traveling theatre productions. I wondered why she hadn’t tried a CW show but in fact she has, in 2012. Full Story

All this Zayn Malik One Direction drama is making me think a lot about Spice Girls and Take That. Oh look. Here are new pictures of Robbie Williams performing in Paris this week. As I wrote the other day, after Ritchie reminded me, Robbie's breakup from Take That was a major crisis moment for fans. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last week it was Vogue that turned 25 years old. And very, very soon? It’s almost 25 years to the day that Mimi shot the video for Vision Of Love. The song was then released a month later, in May. You shrug. But do you know the influence of Vision Of Love? Vision Of Love inspired an entire generation of singers and wannabe singers. Because while it was Whitney who was the master of melisma, Mimi took it to the people. Which is why The New Yorker once called Vision Of Love the “magna carta” of melisma. Think of what American Idol would look like without Vision Of Love. Or whether or not it would even exist.

I wonder if Mimi is already celebrating. Here she is, out for dinner last night, giving us some serious Vision Of Love hair, no extensions and no pieces.  Read Full Intro
