Dear Gossips,

I’m sorry, I can’t stop. Last night before bed, Jacek was watching the news and I had my headphones in, cranked up loud. He was asking me something and I couldn’t hear. Then he tapped me and I still didn’t react. He finally had to shove his face into the side of my head before I noticed.

“Are you creeping Brandon Flowers again?”

What?

I’m obsessed with this album, not unlike how obsessed I was with Taylor Swift’s 1989. Because both are so unapologetically, gleefully POP. The thing with pop, and my relationship to it, is that it came first for me. It was mine. I grew up in an immigrant home. My Chinese parents didn’t have a music library. They didn’t, couldn’t, introduce me to whatever it is you want to call “classic rock”. Pop was on the radio. Pop was what was there for me to discover. Pop was the first love. And it was a door too. Because pop isn’t snobby. Pop doesn’t tell you that you can’t go and learn about punk afterwards and then move on to soul, folk, metal, and on. I’ll never not have an iPod without New Order on it. Or Duran Duran. And in this new interview Brandon Flowers just addressed rumours that he might be collaborating with one of the bands, or both. OMG.

Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Photos and recap on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Let me leave you with this for the weekend…because this actually distracted me for a few minutes from my obsession with Brandon Flowers. PS. Brandon is performing tonight on Graham Norton. He’s doing I Can Change. OK but back to Charlie Hunnam and his lap. Guy Ritchie posted this on Instagram. Full Story

As you’ve heard, JLO’s going to Vegas, officially. The residency begins in January at Planet Hollywood. As I said before, JLO’s a good show. But there aren’t that many hits. So the spectacle might be more important than the songs, you know? The clothing, the makeup, the hair, the choreography. Full Story

As I mentioned yesterday, Miley Cyrus was in New York last night performing at the Adult Swim upfront party. Then she went out to party with Bella Hadid and Scout Willis. And her nipples were all over the place. Get over it. In other Miley news, her focus lately has been on launching Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit aimed to raise awareness for LGBT homeless, at-risk and LGBT youth and collaborating with other artists in a series of Backyard Sessions in support of the charity. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I spend my nights listening to Brandon Flowers, creeping him online. Wait. Can you call it creeping when you don’t bother hiding it? Jacek will come up from the basement, see me on my laptop, and know right away. “Are you perving out on Brandon Flowers again?” YES.  Read Full Intro

After kicking off the 1989 tour in Tokyo last week, Taylor Swift was back in LA this weekend. On Saturday she was seen at Wango Tango, dancing and cheering during her boyfriend Calvin Harris’s set. Yesterday she was out on a hike with Gigi Hadid. Gigi is one of the many Friends Of Taylor (FOT) featured in the upcoming Bad Blood video that will premiere at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. Full Story

Brandon Flowers was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Two Brandon posts in two days. This isn’t helping my problem. Because… well… the voice. Some people live? They’re sh-t. Him? The notes are there. And his energy. His charisma. His FACE. I mean I thought he was all of it with short hair. Full Story

Brandon’s back

Thanks to Henry who sent this to me because I would have missed it otherwise. Brandon Flowers. His back. No shirt. NO PROBLEM. Henry asked if he was too tanned. Or skinny. Not for me. I like skinny. I prefer lanky over juiced up. So this is cranking all my gears. And I’ve been accelerating on Brandon for a while. Full Story

Butterfly on a butterfly stage

Mimi kicked off her Vegas residency last night. And look at the stage… BUTTERFLY WINGS. Our butterfly comes flying out of butterfly wings! Well… “Flying” might not be the right word. Our butterfly doesn’t actually fly. Instead, our butterfly, according to the New York Times review of the show, is “wheeled” out, several times. Full Story

Fight! Boy fight! It’s been, what?, a month since Zayn Malik announced he was leaving One Direction? They said it was amicable. Oh come on. It’s never amicable. At least not at the beginning. This sh-t takes years to get over. Can you imagine if Twitter was around when Geri left the Spice Girls? Twitter is a gift at times like this. Full Story
