Seems fitting to open with a Canadian. Jason Priestley was photographed yesterday in Toluca Lake and from this distance, underneath those shades, he could still be Brandon Walsh. Looks good, right? Jason is returning to television soon having just booked a guest-starring role on the new series Scoundrels on ABC. Full Story

In an auditorium full of world class entertainers, Chris Brown tried to usurp the occasion by trumping the rest. Well, he can eat their sh-t. You’ve already seen the amazingness of the Prince tribute, but Brown’s tears also took a back row seat to performances by Kanye West, Eminem, and Drake. Full Story

Lolan is a longtime reader. LONG time. And Lolan was not happy with me yesterday: Kellan Lutz bone to pick with you. Lainey, you really screwed your readers over by not including some sort of disclaimer with your "A Shirtless Career" post about Kellan Lutz.

And he needs another Mummy movie soon. Because lately Brendan Fraser has been for sh-t at the box office. Fraser can currently be seen in theatres in a movie called Furry Vengeance. Full Story
