In Toronto, I work out of the CTV Building which is also the MuchMusic Building. MuchMusic is a big deal for teens. And there are often young girls lined up around the block waiting for an appearance. One day, it was over a year ago, Michelle and I arrived early in the morning and they had camped out, barely able to contain their squeals. Full Story

Well this means it’ll last

Declarations of love forever in the form of drunken tats...is there any other way to get back together? Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley were supposed to get divorced. Both have been linked to others. She and one of those rich Davis brothers and Brody Jenner, he with this broad Full Story

Looking older?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is 29. Doesn’t look it normally, does he? Closer to 20 than 30, non? That’s the challenge for baby faced actors. JGL is currently in Vancouver working on Seth Rogen’s new film, formerly titled I’m With Cancer. Can we give it a proper name yet? The Untitled Seth Rogen Cancer Project sounds horrible. Full Story

This boy is cute

Isn’t he? Look at that skin. And his sheepish little expression. Cory Monteith is a full blown adult playing high school and that got tired real quick with Taylor Kitsch and Scott Porter (hello Friday Night Lights!) but on Cory, I’m buying and this is not a negative. Cory’s cute makes up for his lack of pants steeze. Full Story

Michael Buble

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 15, 2010 08:24:00 March 15, 2010 08:24:00

Background: I have been very, VERY critical of Michael Buble especially while he was dating Emily Blunt who is, as many of you know, in my estimation, as close to perfect as it gets in Hollywood... with the exception of Marion Cotillard. But this is another discussion. There were allegations of infidelity, of douchey behaviour, and I wrote about it extensively. Full Story

Young Artists for Haiti

Exactly 2 months ago, on January 12th, 2010, an earthquake devastated the Haitian landscape… but not the Haitian spirit. K’Naan’s Wavin’ Flag is the anthem for Young Artists for Haiti, recorded by some of the biggest names in Canadian music in support of earthquake relief efforts. Full Story

JGL & Seth Rogen

Here he is – Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Vancouver yesterday with Seth Rogen on the set of the cancer movie that was previously titled I’m With Cancer but now seems to have no name. As you now know, JGL stepped in to replace James McAvoy in the lead role about a 25 year old comedy writer diagnosed with cancer, the true life story of Seth’s friend Will Reiser. Full Story

McJakey & the Mighty Opes!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 9, 2010 07:49:07 March 9, 2010 07:49:07

It’s the new campaign: make McJakey happen! And it sounds like you’re all over it too. Well...most of you. The McGoslings can’t move on. And they hit me hard with hate yesterday. Here’s a sample from Linda in Calgary: Stop pushing that stupid idiot Jake Gyllenhale on Rachel. Rachel and Ryan belong together, you will see. Full Story

Best Imaginary New Couple: Rachel & Jake

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 8, 2010 11:24:01 March 8, 2010 11:24:01

Post By Duana & Lainey So tonight Lara says "Everything is right in the world when Rachel McAdams is around" which is so true. But the other half of it is that I just want everything to be OK for Rachel. She's a hometown girl, and I don't think anyone worried about her until post-Gosling. Full Story

Worst Giveaway: Ryan Reynolds

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 8, 2010 07:54:49 March 8, 2010 07:54:49

Post By Duana & Lainey This isn't actually a beef with Ryan Reynolds himself, who seemed to spend the entirety of the Red Carpet talking about what BFFs he and Sandra Bullock are, and how they have been for many years. But I did, a little bit, feel that with that sentiment so fresh in my mind, having Ryan brought out to introduce The Blind Side - doesn't it kind of give it away? A little? I actually really appreciate the genuine friendships that abound in the Kodak Theatre - at least, it seemed tonight, the ones associated with Sandra Bullock who could do no wrong. Full Story

Sometimes I worry...

About his arms. It’s not that I’m complaining that Ryan Gosling is fit. Of course not. Hell no. But I was having this conversation with a friend recently and ... well... Ryan Gosling is also not Kellan Lutz. He doesn’t have to be. So when I see these biceps busting and they seem to be busting more and more these days, I worry he’s hittin’ the gym all the time. Full Story
