The MuchMusic Video Awards happened last night in Toronto. And our Canadian pride and joy, our answer to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, blessed the occasion with a lot of leather, a lot of extensions, and a spiked crown. Avril performed at the event and won an award. Chad did not perform as he was only there to support his future wife, without his bandmates. Full Story

It’s what I have always said I love most about Rachel McAdams (and we love her a lot here at LaineyGossip.com) -- Rachel isn’t LA. Rachel works, and then she comes home. She stays in Toronto. And it can get cold in Toronto. It’s not the every day sunny skies of Los Angeles. It’s a pain in the ass to get around when it snows. Full Story

We've seen many faces of Keanu Reeves over the years. There's Keanu the insanely successful blockbuster star, Keanu the art house gay-ish muse, Keanu the idiot, Keanu the romcom leading man, Keanu the sad Chateau Marmont cliche. Now say hello to Keanu the director. The trailer for his first feature film, called Man of Tai Chi, has been released and, while it's probably not what you were expected from him, it also confirms some assumptions we've all been making about him for some time now. Full Story

Well this helps on a sluggish morning. Jon Snow arrived in Vancouver yesterday for reshoots on his film The Seventh Son. He looks really good in a tight white t-shirt. You wouldn’t know from watching the show since he’s always hidden underneath all those layers of crow. Kit’s been spending a lot of time in Canada lately. Full Story

It’s been a year since, well, since Taylor Kitsch’s attempt to become a big blockbuster movie star went bust. Texas Forever and Riggins for life, but there’s no other way to say it. So what do you do?  Hockey analogy seems to apply here -- we take it shift by shift, so let’s call last year the first period, and after a solid intermission, we’re now beginning the second. Full Story

How did I miss these pictures of Linda Evangelista at the CFDA Awards the other night? Because I’m a stupid c-nt, that’s why. For making Linda wait a day. I’m sorry. She is still my everything, even though that dress is all kinds of knock-off. Page Six Full Story

Will Smith had it right in Summertime (I love that jam): Every moment frontin’ and maxin’ Chillin’ in the car they spent all day waxin’ Leanin’ to the side but you can't speed through Two miles an hour so everybody see you I mean, unless you’re on a race track, why city-drive a nice car like it’s a race? Come on, half the reason you’re buying it is because you want people to see you in it. Full Story

Jon Snow and Canada’s Sweetheart

Rachel McAdams does not live in Los Angeles. As I’ve said repeatedly, it’s one of my favourite things about her. Instead she prefers home, in Toronto. She was out in Toronto this weekend for dinner and drinks with a group of friends... that included Kit Harington. This photo was posted on Twitter by @VanessaElecia Full Story

There were two moments worth watching last night at the Billboard Music Awards: Chris Brown singing BADLY off-key, and all the drama that went down between Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Justin Bieber. More on this in a minute. First, let’s discuss fashion. HATE the white Atelier Versace on Gomez. Full Story

The CW upfronts happened in New York today. And the stars of one of the network’s most important shows, The Vampire Diaries, turned up together, but not. It was confirmed last week that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have ended their relationship. Needless to say, there were no group shots. Full Story
