Justin Bieber partied in Cannes this year. One night, at a club, he took the mic and dropped a few verses. Because, you know, in his head, he’s a badass. Here’s the video. Are you impressed? Is that the kind of cool you want to be around? You know who else was there that night? At the same club? Leonardo DiCaprio. Full Story

US Weekly reported yesterday that Chad Kroeger has been telling people that he and Avril Lavigne are done. We actually covered this on etalk a couple of months ago. That’s how long he’s been walking around announcing this. Full Story

US Weekly reports exclusively that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's baby girl arrived on Friday, September 12. No name has been announced. Which is not surprising. They've never actually confirmed they were expecting in the first place. In fact, when news first broke that she was pregnant, people were still saying (hoping?) that they were no longer together. Full Story

Xavier Dolan's duelling enfant terrible and wunderkind personas have become his trademark, often overshadowing his immense talent. Remember, this 25-year-old won the Cannes Jury Prize for his fifth film, Mommy, in May, but barely eight months earlier, he bit back at an unflattering review in The Hollywood Reporter, tweeting, "kiss my narcissistic ass. Full Story

Oh Brooklyn. You gave him a reason. I mean, he never really needs a reason. But now he’s just made it his thing. So Justin Bieber was at Fashion Rocks last night. As he stepped on stage to present with model Lara Stone, the crowd started hissing. In response, he took his shirt and pants off, then did a few lunges in his underpants. Full Story

This is why I keep comparing Justin Bieber to Lindsay Lohan. Because it's ALWAYS something. It's always chaos. There's always drama. And it's never their fault. JB went home to Stratford, ON for Labour Day long weekend. He had Selena Gomez with him. They spent time with the family. Full Story

No doubt about it now. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together. It’s been two weeks. By their standards, that’s like 6 months. The two were photographed getting off a private jet two days ago in Canada. So I guess JB is spending the long weekend at home. For her, it’s a risky decision. Full Story

Rihanna and Drake met up at a club last night in New York. It’s the first time they’ve been out together publicly since they broke up (again) in April/May. Can they be “just” friends? It’s never worked out that way before. But it’s a good thing that they keep trying, right? Or is it a bad thing because the more they keep trying, it’s kinda like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber? Or maybe it’s because she wants to see if she can get his “anaconda” up higher than Nicki Minaj. Full Story
