Blake Lively and her artisanal fetus (thank you Michael K at Dlisted) are all over Preserve right now – first, with the announcement and now with Bringing Up Baby, a post all about… huh? I know that not everyone can be Grace Coddington and tell a fantastical visual story, but if this is all about Bringing Up Baby Full Story

Variety reported today that Rachel McAdams is very close to signing on to True Detective season 2. Her name came up after Elisabeth Moss was rumoured, and then they apparently ended up auditioning several other actors because of a scheduling conflict; she’s also working on a film called Spotlight and they had to negotiate so that she could take on True Detective without giving that up. Full Story

One of the earliest rumours about the True Detective Season 2 casting was that Ellen Page and Kate Mara would replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. I was excited about that. I didn’t really care for Season 1 but if they’d set it up like that for Season 2, I was in. Didn’t happen. Full Story

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

W Magazine’s cover feature this month: The New Royals There are several women who’ve been chosen. The best one, to me anyway, since we’re keeping with a Canadian Maritime theme today: Ellen Page, born in Halifax.

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
