Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney hosted an English garden party for GOOP in the Hamptons on Friday. How do you make it on the guest list for this event? If I walked in would they automatically direct my Chinese ass into the kitchen? The dress with the two hearts is Stella, obviously. I love it a LOT. Full Story

The Newsroom Season 2 Episode 7 recap My PVR didn’t originally record this episode, because it thought this episode wasn’t new. Enjoy that meta statement! Take it for what you will! Gaffes in cable providers aside, I’m not going to ask if anyone’s still watching The Newsroom. Full Story

Xenu had a birthday party the other day. It was the 44th anniversary of the Celebrity Scientology Centre and most of the notables who haven’t been excommunicated where there including the usuals – John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Jenna Elfman, and …Michael Pena? Where the f-ck have I been? I love Michael Pena! Michael Pena loves Xenu? Michael Pena is in End Of Watch, one of my Top 10 movies of 2012 Full Story

There was a kind of feeling of quiet despair at the VMAs. Did you feel it, at home on your couch? I think it was because there was so much promise – NSYNC,  Taylor and Harry, Drake – and then so much sweaty disappointment.   The four members of NSYNC who know that was their last TV appearance ever, the series of awards Drake and Swifty and Rihanna didn’t win, the terrible audio, the distraction over why Gaga has suddenly and completely lost her game…you know?  It was a night of ups and downs, and I think you’d be lying if you said you weren’t squinting in confusion and a little anxiety at the screen at least some of the time. Full Story

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 11 recap The last episode – Buried - was about brute violence: the desert hit and Hank and Walt fighting in the garage. It’s back to the base violence that Walt never really took to. When given the choice, Walt’s MO has always been grand and dramatic, poisoning and bombs. Full Story

If I looked this good in overalls and a pair of suede wedge booties, I’d wear them every day. She’s TWELVE. She’s TWELVE and already her innate sense of style is my favourite jam. I don’t love her English accent or her pre-teen summer fling, but there was something about Willow Smith’s attitude last night that made it clear to me why Will and Jaden said in their spectacularly trippy interview with Vulture Full Story

Which do you prefer? Do you prefer Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP with the multiple wig changes and the cardboard cut-out? Or was Kanye’s stripped down silhouette for Blood On The Leaves more your jam? I give it to Yeezy. I liked the look of his body dancing in shadow. I did not like the high school musical low budget production Gaga served up to open the show. Full Story

Paula Patton seemed high on life last night. Can you blame her? I have nothing but love for Paula Patton today. She’s been through enough. And I don’t mean what Miley was doing to her husband with that foam finger. After all, he made the video. I know you’ve seen that version of the video. Full Story

Rihanna shat on my Gossip Genie but not on Harry Styles

I’ve been praying hard at my Gossip Genie for a Rihanna-Drake re-hookup. Have you noticed that Drake isn’t “linked” to many women the way famous men are constantly being “linked” to women? There’s a Toronto bias here at work, sure, but if you know about Drake and his relationship with his mother, and if you read his recent profile in GQ Full Story

No reported sightings of Mrs Timberlake at the VMAs but she did show up for the after-party at the Dream hotel. That’s quite a dress too. It’s sheer. There’s underwear. It looks expensive. And… all it got was an after-party? Deprived the opportunity to be shown on the carpet? Don’t say the paps aren’t useful, especially when you’re wearing something you really want to be seen in. Full Story

Inspired by a line in Tropic Thunder. Either you know it or you don’t. I started the VMAs on Team Taylor last night. The hair and makeup were good. The matching colour dress with her bff Selena Gomez was good. With an ex-boyfriend in the house and the girlfriend of an ex-boyfriend in the house, that’s how you do. Full Story
