Ryan Gosling was at Disneyland yesterday. I guess I came a day too late. But he's here so much - as we've seen - it's not like it's totally impossible that he wouldn't be back again 24 hours later. Anyway, usually when we hear about Gosling at Disney, he's on a date with a girlfriend. Full Story

Nothing but love for the steeze that Tegan and Sara brought to the carpet at the Oscars, and not just because they’re Canadian. Also not just because Mae Whitman is in their I Was A Fool video. But that too. All of that, on top of the fact that they are talented and awesome and cute and not too cool to be excited and nervous and enthusiastic about being at the F-CKING OSCARS! And singing at the Oscars! No, it’s not a great song. Full Story

A promo for Justin Bieber's upcoming roast on Comedy Central has just been released. Like I said before, I don't know why people were initially so happy about this like they actually thought he'd be embarrassed. About what? He gets to take his shirt off. There's an entire show about him. Full Story

I mean I guess you can’t do something like this anymore without mentioning her. And she wants the credit, godammit! (Or at least Kanye West does.) Drake released a short film yesterday. Then, last night, a new album. Tape? He’s calling it a tape. Collection? Whatever. It’s 17 tracks. Full Story

Rachel McAdams, Colin Farrell, and Taylor Kitsch were photographed in LA shooting True Detective season 2 yesterday. It seems like they were shooting some kind of armed standoff. As you know, all three of them play police officers. I like Rachel in cop mode. My Photo Assumption is that all three are comfortable, relaxed with each other, totally friendly. Full Story
