Dear Gossips,

Have you read The Book Thief by Markus Zusak? I referenced The Book Thief exactly 3 years ago here in a post arguing in favour of YA – that it’s underrated, that it’s ignorant to dismiss it on the basis of its classification, because otherwise you’d be deprived of a work like The Book Thief, as profound, complex, and insightful as any so-called adult literature, and arguably more accessible.  Read Full Intro

NY Times Style profile on Victoria Beckham. You know what? She gives a good interview. She gives a FUN interview. So I’m not excerpting it because I don’t want you to miss out on her tone. She is at once cheeky, but also honest, and, when it counts, very serious, especially about her business. Full Story

I have been waiting and waiting for access to new pictures of Sara Carbonero and Iker Casillas for weeks. As you, I love them so much. And it was confirmed a few weeks ago that they’re expecting a baby. Here they are out for dinner in Madrid earlier this week. So it’s transition time for Iker, both personally and professionally. Full Story

Check out Madonna in Rome at the opening of her Hard Candy Fitness Club. As you can see, she’s wearing a grill. Why Is Madonna’s grill? Celebitchy posits that it might be about copying Miley Cyrus and staying young and relevant. I can’t argue with that. Full Story

Because someone needs to help him find some proper clothes. Look at him. In Japan promoting Man Of Steel.

The movie is called Pompeii. As he told me a few months ago at the Game Of Thrones S3 premiere, it’s Kit Harington’s first leading film role. Obviously about Mt Vesuvius. Do they teach Mt Vesuvius the way they taught it in the prehistoric era when I grew up? Because it was fascinating, the way things that terrify us were fascinating back then. Full Story

Better clench up, Legolas! That has nothing to do with anything, really. I just wanted to say. But I was reminded of RDJ/Iron Man’s great line to Hawkeye in The Avengers because “clench” is the word that came to mind looking at these shots of Justin Theroux in Mexico with Jennifer Aniston. Full Story
