Written by Duana This woman. This – woman. She is so fantastic. She is not here because these are all her lovely celebrity friends – she is here because she was invited, requested to do a job. You know what her job is? Her job is “to sing the ‘Smile’ song to commemorate those who have died”. Full Story

Ryan Gosling will not be at the Oscars this weekend. Which I still don’t understand because it’s not like Michelle Williams could have summoned that performance on her own, especially not in that film. Still… He may not be in LA but maybe Cincinnati is better. Check out these photos of Gosling on the set of The Ides of March with George Clooney whose parents came by for a visit yesterday. Full Story

Real Love on VD

Exclusive I receive requests for Vampire Diaries all the time. Don’t watch the show but I hear you, I know you think I should… Anyway, many of the VD emails involve Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder and whether or not they’re dating. Well, maybe this tip will answer that question for you. Full Story

Please just happen already

Real life doesn’t work the Ross and Rachel way but when it comes to Rihanna and Drake, I wish it would. As I noted in the article after the Grammys, these two need to happen. For all of us. Rihanna and Drake performed during half-time at the NBA All-Star Game in LA last night and, well, it was a lot better than what the Black Eyed Peas delivered at the Super Bowl though to be fair, I suppose an indoor venue is different. Full Story

Family Day for Alanis

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 21, 2011 07:10:08 February 21, 2011 07:10:08

It’s Family Day today in parts of Canada. Alanis is from Ontario. Ontario observes Family Day. So it all works out then. I’m originally from Ontario too. But now I live in British Columbia. BC does not observe Family Day. F-ck, why not??? Here’s Alanis Morissette gloriously happy with her family yesterday in Venice, CA. Full Story

Diane & Josh: rings?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 17, 2011 09:15:48 February 17, 2011 09:15:48

There are two things I never notice: pregnancy and wedding rings. You know how when you check someone out, there’s an unconscious but not really list that gets ticked off? For me, it’s always shoes, then hair, then skin, then I want to know about the body, how they look in those pants/skirt/dress, then I spend a few seconds judging the pants/skirt/dress, and at that point it’s impolite to keep staring so I look away and fixate on someone else. Full Story

No changes

Avril Lavigne attended the Brit Awards last night in London. While on the carpet, with her hair dyed all different colours, she stuck out her tongue and lifted her middle finger. How long has this been? Almost 10 years, it has to be, right? So some artists constantly reinvent. And others… don’t f-cking move. Full Story

Michael takes Rachel home

Exclusive I wrote about Rachel McAdams and Michael Sheen the other day when they were spotted at Dublin airport – click here for a refresher. They were there because Michael Sheen received the James Joyce Award from the Literary and Historical Society of University College Dublin. Full Story

Diana Kruger arrived at LAX yesterday and Joshua Jackson picked her up with flowers, which, like, awwww… Not just because it’s flowers and Valentines but because there are so many paps at that airport, and so many starf-ckers standing around, and he’s all like, whatever, I need to be romantic for my girl. Full Story
