As reported yesterday American Idol is apparently negotiating with Nicki Minaj to replace Steven Tyler. The people who run American Idol obviously don’t know my Mimi. Here’s what I wrote in the original post yesterday - click here for a refresher - in response to the news: Did they even consult with Mimi? Never mind the actual show, how will they even get through the seating arrangement process? Does Mimi seem to you like she plays well with girls? Girls who are younger than she is?

Is that a keg? A barrel? I don’t know. Does it matter? He’s lifting it. He’s lovely. He’s gorgeous. He was in New York yesterday shooting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby with Jessica Chastain. James is not coming to TIFF. Last time he came to TIFF we smoked out a window together and talked about his baby. Full Story

Captain America 2 is casting its female lead, with the final choice said to be down to Anna Kendrick, Imogen Poots and Felicity Jones. That’s an intriguing list, not only for what it says about which character they might be playing, but what we can expect Cap 2 to look like. It’s shaping up to be a lot less “golly-gee” than The First Avenger was, with comedy veterans Anthony and Joe Full Story

Last year we had Brange and George. This year Johnny Depp and Will Smith. That’s a win when you can secure any two of the big 5 and both Depp and Smith were on the TIFF expected guest list released this morning. A few quick notes which, by no means, covers everything, but we’ll add to it later as we approach the festival: -Paul Thomas Anderson is on the list for The Master and, after the reaction from last week’s Chicago screening - click here Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Despite repeat claims by local French media, there was no Brange wedding at Miraval this weekend. They’re now blaming their sh-t reporting on the work of a “prankster”. Of course. There was also a rumour about Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake and a secret wedding in Wyoming.  Read Full Intro

So Michelle Williams and Jason Segel had a free day. They went out for lunch with some friends. I love this. All of this: - That Matilda’s at camp, playing and having fun (even though it might be with gross rich LA kid friends). - That shirt-dress Michelle is wearing that is probably really expensive for something that isn’t super flattering. Full Story

Co-hosted with the Seinfelds, Jessica and Jerry, in the Hamptons, of course. Where else? It’s August. That’s where you find the right people in August, didn’t you know? You can see evidence of a proper Hamptons summer all over G’s face. I worry about her skin though. I hope her SPF is strong enough. Full Story

Just in case you weren’t sure, although I can’t imagine why, when Mariah Carey’s American Idol debuts in January, it’s getting a lot of play here on this blog. We might even liveblog. I look forward to it more than I’m looking forward to Christmas, no lies. And now, perhaps even more. Full Story
