Someone emailed me yesterday wondering about old beef between Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez. The question came up because G posted a shot of JLO on Instagram from her performance – without a song – at the American Music Awards. JLO trains with Tracy Anderson now. So, if you think she’s looking better than she’s ever looked, it’s probably because she’s using the Tracy Anderson Method. Full Story

Eva Mendes confirms she had a baby

Technically Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling never confirmed that they were expecting and they never confirmed that a daughter arrived on September 12. I mean we knew because TMZ published the birth certificate – click here for a refresher – but there were no photos of her pregnant, there’s been no photo shoot of her holding her baby, and there was no social media announcement of her name. Full Story

Much like Jake Gyllenhaal (for Nightcrawler), Bradley Cooper is currently off the conventional Oscar circuit (for American Sniper) and is making a starring turn on Broadway in The Elephant Man until February.  I saw The Elephant Man last week – B. Coops was incredible in it. His scene partner Patricia Clarkson outshined him, but that’s hardly a reflection of his talent or complete immersion in the role. Full Story

Katy Cambridge was at East Anglia Children’s Hospice today to launch a fundraising campaign. She’s in red, seems well and healthy, and, now that I’m aware of it… never looks at a camera. My friend Lorella brought this to my attention just yesterday. She lives in in London now and she’s been watching that 3 part BBC special Posh People: Inside Tatler which is what I’ll be doing tonight. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston was at two screenings for Cake this weekend. On Friday it was with Variety followed by a cocktail party at the Sunset Tower. She wore pink and Justin Theroux was there. Last night there was another one with cinema prive and PANDORA Jewellery. She wore glasses and leather pants and, again, that great black jacket. Full Story

In advance of the American Music Awards – and the RIDICULOUS fact that Iggy Azalea was nominated for more awards than she was, WTF? – Beyonce dropped her video for 7/11 on Friday. Which is what everyone was talking about for most of the weekend. And she stepped out with Jay wearing a “B” in the front, “BOW DOWN” in the back varsity jacket just in case you don’t get the point… As for the video? Oh come on. Full Story

Charlie in VOGUE

Charlie Hunnam wasn’t at Comic-Con this year, the final year for Sons Of Anarchy. If you recall, to make up for his absence, a video was played in Hall H explaining why he couldn’t be there. I’m reposting in case you’ve forgotten. But, really, I just want you to get another shot of his ass: So he missed Comic-Con because he had to do a photo shoot for VOGUE. Full Story

Two new Beyonce tracks leaked yesterday ahead of her new album release. The first song, 7/11, is Beysus rapping. The second, called Ring Off, is Beyonce gossip. So it’s about a woman taking her “ring off” because “it’s your time to put your love on top”. Oh, Love On Top. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston showed up to the LA premiere of Horrible Bosses 2 last night in a white lace bustier. I think it might be one piece, along with the black skirt. Not spending any energy analysing it. Because I can’t stand to look at it. This is a terrible look. It’s an FHM girl look. Full Story
