Is The Fan killing Objectivity?

We saw it happen with Twilight: media editors strongly encouraging their reporters to positively report on anything Twilight so as to encourage traffic. I’ve heard that some reviewers were asked specifically not to sh-t on the Twilight movies in fear of fan mobilisation against their outlets. Full Story

But first... Look at H7! She’s walking on her chubby little legs! H7’s mother is promoting her collection in Dublin. Check her out, working hard in a trench coat. Never a candid moment for Victoria Beckham, right? Not even with a microphone in her face. I love the absurdity of that shot. Full Story

If you consider her first act being a movie star, then I guess she’s in her second act. She was in movies, but was Jessica Alba ever a movie star? Debatable. Vanity Fair does a series called Where I Go: International Itineraries from the Global Jet Set, a prescribed list of questions for celebrities; as much they hate to admit it, many want to be Goop, the privileged insider who knows a city better than the locals. Full Story

Here’s the new PEOPLE cover. As you can see, they picked a shot of his “sad eyes”. His world is “shattered”. It’s his “private pain”. That’s what we, the women, respond to isn’t it? Tom Cruise the victim? He is hurting. He needs a hug. That may have been his only play but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad one. Full Story

Casting rumours are just like regular rumours. Everyone reads the first headline but no one ever reads the denial and subsequent dismissal. Take Melissa Leo for example. If you were to google Melissa Leo you’d find several pages of links reporting that she’s to be Mags in Catching Fire citing Variety as a source. Full Story

Always. Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio at lunch yesterday at Fred Segal with some friends and it’s just understood, you know? When he rolls with the boys, they take their seats in the middle, and he takes his at the head. If the head is not the best however, well, obviously adjustments are made so that Leo is situated wherever it is best, be it the view, be it for comfort, be it for maximum straddle room for whichever model he has chosen to service him that evening. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Have you seen the cover of Marie Claire South Africa? I’ve attached it below. That’s Kate Middleton’s head on a model’s body. And apparently the pages are more of the same - Catherine Cambridge “wearing” South African designers as part of a “fan art tribute”.  Read Full Intro

Have I mentioned how obsessed I am with Anne Hathaway’s hair? I have, I know. And it won’t stop. Here’s Anne, the Catwoman you all insist on hating, at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises last night in New York. And that is a great dress on her. Not on everyone, but definitely on her. Full Story

Hate SO MUCH what Marion Cotillard wore last night at the New York premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. Especially those shoes. Gross. How gross? This is an outfit for Emmy Rossum. You see? Gross. And especially disappointing because her new Vogue cover just came out and it’s glorious. Full Story
