I wore earrings yesterday per the Chinese Squawking Chicken’s orders so that my luck wouldn’t fall down my shoulders – click here for a refresher. And then Rihanna and Drake held hands. It’s like the Squawking Chicken knows how to talk to the Gossip Genie. Full Story

See, this is the kind of video I prefer. I don’t want to watch deposition video of Justin Bieber being a sh-t to a lawyer. I would rather watch him in a dance studio with Selena Gomez, his “Most Elegant Princess” doing a corny move-by-move interpretation of John Legend’s Ordinary People. Full Story

I’ve been waiting all day to write about the Canadian Screen Awards to see if the photos would come down in cost…and they haven’t.

I’m not sure it’s a good idea for you to watch these on a Monday morning. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to show you something that will make you violent on a Monday morning. So maybe don’t watch if you have an important meeting coming up? Or a client lunch later on? Justin Bieber is infuriating at the best of times. Full Story

Drake was supposed to be on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone. The magazine decided to go with Philip Seymour Hoffman instead. And Drake decided to rage about it on Twitter. What initially set him off was that he claims that he didn’t disrespect Kanye West in the interview. This quote in particular is what offended him: "There were some real questionable bars on (Yeezus). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I had every intention of watching Miley’s MTV Unplugged last night. But I missed it. You know why? JUSTIN BIEBER. He came home to Toronto and turned himself into police and our freezing city almost melted down.  Read Full Intro
