Hell yeah. Speaking of sh-t disturbing, Vibe is disturbing some really good sh-t with its new issue featuring two covers: Drake and Chris Brown. Oh la. Chris Brown of course is the piece of sh-t who’s trying to sell a new album while riding the high from his beatdown of Rihanna. Drake however is the Canadian breakout artist and Degrassi alumnus who worked with everyone from Kanye to Jay-Z to Lykke Li this year and who just earned two Grammy nominations this week for Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Song and… Is rumoured to have been the first to date RiRi after Breezy. Full Story

Do it. I know it’s hard, but you must. There’s horny and then there’s f-cking desperate and STUPID. And friends don’t let friends quiver for the desperate and stupid. Goodbye Mark Salling. Or… Like Chris Pine, can we shame Mark Salling into getting rid of it? Last night at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood party, Mark Salling hooked up with Audrina Patridge. Full Story

Glee Ballads

See? It’s a good day. Johnny, Alex, and GLEE tonight. This episode features Ballads and Endless Love. The promo is below. And the song, with VOs, is below that. I have the jumpy claps just thinking about Kurt’s crush on Finn. Speaking of Finn, here’s Cory Monteith in Toronto last night where he’s been on a press blitz after presenting at the Gemini Awards on Saturday in Calgary. Full Story

Rachel & Spidey?

Brilliant. Word is, they’re moving ahead with Spiderman 4 and Sam Raimi is currently casting for supporting characters and new villains… Rachel McAdams is being seriously considered to play the Black Cat who, in the comics, becomes a sort of Spidey stalker. Spiderman Fatal Attraction. She’s perfect for it. Full Story

Because it’s his birthday. Ryan Gosling, of course. He’s 29. Crista W wrote to request some Ryan for the occasion. Am attaching previously unposted photos of Ryan and Dead Man’s Bones performing in LA on Halloween and also some older favourites. Sigh. It’s not healthy to watch it every day. Full Story

Written by Jacek Sometimes the day is filled with gems! And here’s a large and shiny one. Robin Thicke stopped by a radio station in Miami today to promote his upcoming album. I almost lost it when I saw the pictures and then read the caption. It's called Sex Therapy. Sex Therapy? Really? Look at these photos. Full Story

Scabby needs a special light

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 10, 2009 11:57:08 November 10, 2009 11:57:08

Scabby was in Florida last week to launch her perfume (?) and I remember thinking to myself at the time that she did indeed look a lot less filthy in the pictures – attached. For starters,her outfit is almost decent. And it doesn’t appear like she just came from a session with an entire football team. Full Story

Glee Wheels

Only one more sleep and Glee comes back. Jumpy claps! Tomorrow’s episode focuses on Artie and his backstory. Also his penis. No, for reals. Great interview here with Kevin McHale who plays Artie about his hidden talents and about the musical numbers featured in the new episode. Full Story

Josh & Diane in a pantsuit

Joshua Jackson left Vancouver to join Diane Kruger in Hollywood last night at the 2009 Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards. Sigh. I love how he loves her. He takes the skytrain to pick her up when she flies in to see him. He calls to make her spa appointments. He loves her. I love how he loves her. And I love this pantsuit. Full Story

Perfect family travel

What else is there to look at? Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry arrived back in LA yesterday from New York with baby Nahla, all 3 colour coordinated, all 3 styled perfectly, all 3 ridiculously beautiful, reminding us what ordinary really means. Ordinary is anything that is not them. This is absurd. Please stop coming out in public. Full Story

Today’s Dress Porn

Diane Kruger in New York at a Chanel event and Fete d’Hiver. Am crying. Tears of hungry want. So bad. Of course it’s Chanel. And therefore completely unaffordable. But it’s the perfect colour and the perfect cap sleeves and the perfect fit and f-ck her for wearing it and also loving Joshua Jackson because she does and they do and she slips in and out of Vancouver undetected every other weekend or so and she was here for Halloween and they walked around downtown undisturbed and totally wrapped in each other and this dress … when I daydream about me and James Franco, I will be wearing this dress. Full Story
