Justin Bieber is putting out a Christmas album. They’ve released the video for a song called Mistletoe. Please. Of course Sasha, Dean, and I have already squ-emailed about it. Of course we are obsessed. Dean had to get all sensible and sh-t and point out that the proceeds go to charity so we should feel good about our stagnated maturation but only after he confessed that “there are basically no celeb Christmas songs that I don’t like” which obviously added another dimension of hilarity to the whole situation. Full Story

What is it about Ryan Gosling that gets the Hey Girl going? It’s his face, I think. And, frankly, the fact that we know...but we don’t know. He’s very good at being expressive without expressing anything. Which is why people keep expressing for him. Or at him.You already know about Hey Girl Ryan Gosling meme - click here Full Story

WHERE did this girl get her game??? On Monday it was reported that she was in Boston last weekend having dinner with Ryan Reynolds. By Tuesday it broke that she and Leonardo DiCaprio were over. Wednesday and Thursday she beat him to the headlines with the story that they split because SHE wasn’t ready to get serious, pissing on Leo’s weak subsequent hook-up with a random Australian model. Full Story

Radiohead played a show in New York on Thursday. There was a lot of jizzing about Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson being there together and whether or not that means it’s a reconciliation. Am told there is NO reconciliation. They’ve just been able to stay friends, as hard as that is to believe. You know who else was also there Full Story

If you’ve been reading this site for a while, now in its third look!, you know how I feel about Arrested Development. Am still angry that people were too dumb to appreciate its brilliance. For years now, they’ve been teasing us about an Arrested Development reunion/movie/whatever. But while there was always hope, there never seemed to be anything solid. Full Story

She was in London working on Sherlock for a while and spending time with boyfriend Michael Sheen with whom she was seen at a few plays, having dinner, totally easy and casual. So it’s been a year now and they’re still really into each other. Yesterday Rachel arrived in LA. Interesting travel pants. Full Story

Hello Kitty as a verb. I work on an entertainment tv show. It’s a half hour. There’s a constant editorial give and take about what we report and what we don’t report. I don’t give a sh-t for example about The Bachelor and those Kardashians. I do understand however that my celebrity preferences don’t represent the general viewer. Full Story

Ryan’s many companions

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 21, 2011 07:39:37 September 21, 2011 07:39:37

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes hooked up for a hike on Sunday. A hike is good. I love hiking. The Vancouver kind of hiking. Pretty sure what they’re doing here though isn’t the Vancouver kind of hiking. Or at least not in those shoes. They probably didn’t go far. He has a book in his hand. Full Story

On exes: Ryan is not Brad

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 16, 2011 08:36:10 September 16, 2011 08:36:10

Brad Pitt, who is currently selling Moneyball, told Parade Magazine that life with Jennifer Aniston was not interesting and pathetic. Ryan Gosling is also selling a movie (Drive opens today - are you going?) and talking about his exes. His comments though are decidedly sweeter. And very, very MiniVan Majority friendly. Full Story
