Oh I’ve been hoping for it for a long time. I’ve been rubbing my Gossip Genie desperately to make this happen. In 2010 I wished for it here. And since then every 6 months or so. When Rachel and Michael Sheen broke up I wished for it again here Full Story

So Rihanna and Drake are not happening. Again. Just before they happened again though, Drake was spending a lot of time with Zoe Kravitz. Last night Zoe and her band Lolawolf played in Toronto at the Mod Club. Both Kate and Natalie emailed me about this. And Zoe recently Instagrammed a shot of Drake to her account: Meaning…? I know what you might think it means. Full Story

Ryan Gosling’s Lost River was not well received in Cannes. In fact, they sh-t on it. Hard. I noticed too that it was men who were particularly unkind. Which kinda made me laugh. Ryan Gosling. That Guy. The Pillow. The one the girls want to hear right before they fall asleep. Are they tired of Ryan Gosling? Of how women sound when Ryan Gosling comes up? Was Cannes a HAHAHAHAH moment for them? Like, Hey Girl, his movie sucks! “If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut. Full Story

Please enjoy these photos of Prince enjoying Rafael Nadal win in straight sets at the French Open today to advance to the quarterfinals.

A video surfaced of Justin Bieber using the n-word this weekend in a candid moment that was recorded several years ago, when he was 15.

Rihanna was photographed leaving an LA recording studio late last night/early this morning after a recording session. She’s still wearing that short hair f-ck you Charlie Sheen pink wig. Over in another part of town, Drake was having dinner in a super cheesy, shiny blue shirt. Coincidence or conspiracy? As much as I hope it’s a conspiracy, I’m sure it’s coincidence. Full Story

Pamela Anderson looked SO good with short hair. Did you see her in Cannes? It really, really worked for her. I’ve attached some shots of that below, after the mess of last night. Last night she showed up at the World Music Awards. And the extensions were back. Like 1987, metal band, Sunset Strip extensions. Full Story

Adrien Brody and Justin Bieber were both at AMFAR in Cannes last night. The smarm, right? The smarm. I know your first inclination is to say that JB has to be bigger douche because he’s, well, he’s JB. And Adrien Brody won an Oscar. Really? Because Adrien Brody also wore this:  Full Story
