As every Canadian cringes... Come on. They’re perfect for each other. You don’t even have to think about it for that long -- Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger make sense. Look at her.

Joshua Jackson is in Vancouver shooting Fringe. The weather has been great the last few weeks, finally. June was awful. July was sh-t too. So he was leaving for LA every chance he could. Because, frankly, Vancouver wasn’t offering much of a summer for a while. Now that August is beautiful though, he’s staying and so is his girlfriend. Full Story

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith worked the carpet together at the Do Something Awards last night. As you can see, they’re playing the “let me look up at you adoringly” pose.

Colin Farrell is strictly v-neck. And now... I think Ryan Gosling might be too. Here’s Ryan at JFK airport this weekend after arriving from New Orleans in a striped v-neck. Reminds me of that Saturday Night Live digital short from last year featuring Ben Stiller and Andy Samberg. The point is. Full Story

Oh, TCAs.  I forgot you were on, you hilarious street party.   There should maybe be more here to be critical of, but why, when it’s all so much fun?  Because all the ambitions and strategies are so naked and forced and everyone has just been through a metamorphosis and it’s SO DAMN CUTE. Full Story

Is it unfair of me to hold this against him? Along with the pretentious instrumenting in New York? Sometimes I wonder if I’m starting to go off Ryan Gosling because of how people feel about him.
