Dear Gossips,

Ready for the MTV VMAs? And the Britney Spears tribute? Britney will receive the Video Vanguard Award on Sunday. Click here for a list of rumoured performers and a speculative song list that could happen in her honour. I am shuddering but I’m also really, really excited. Come on. There’s no better opportunity for spectacular drama. And also, as the recipient of the Vanguard Award, Britney will have to speak. They’ll have written it for her, yes, but even an overly prepared Britney provides for endless analysis.

I’ll be live tweeting the VMAs. This is my Twitter:!/LaineyGossip.

So how are you spending your Friday night? I want to go out, but you know what I want to do more? After dinner with my ma, I just feel like rushing home to read. It took a lot of discipline last night for me not to finish The Night Circus. But I wanted to savour the final 150 pages without having a week day work schedule staring me in the face the next day.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

The US Open starts on Sunday. And my cousin Cat’s birthday is on Monday. AND she loves Rafael Nadal. So this is a Rafa tennis post. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Rafa is in New York being all cute with the children and promoting his Armani underwear thing. I may be the lone voice in all of this but... I don’t get jizzy over men underwear ads. Full Story

Yesterday I was at the new Intermix in Toronto looking for wardrobe for an upcoming shoot. Is it wrong for me to say I kinda want it to be chilly, just maybe for two days, so I can wear my new sweater? Anyway, what I didn’t buy was a pair of black Helmut Lang leather leggings. Full Story

Are you flying back for Britney?

Madonna is vacationing with family and friends in the South of France. This includes her boyfriend Brahim. There they are, her kids, her boyfriend, frolicking in the Mediterranean. Does Madonna not do bikinis anymore? You’d think that if she’s ok with doing a man less than half her age, doing a bikini wouldn’t be a thing. Full Story

What a greedy bitch I am. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield papped together for the first time in a non work situation and, ever unsatisfied, I want more. I want holding hands. Sorry. I will stop. And be satisfied that ... OMG they went out for dinner at Nobu in Malibu last night like boyfriend and girlfriend and I love them so much! I do, I really, really do. Full Story

And will be all weekend. And for weeks to come. It’s Charlotte Gainsbourgh’s video for Terrible Angels. The EP will be released on September 6. You know when you love someone so much you might say - I want to be her...? I don’t want to be her. I would be unworthy of being her. She is the coolest motherf-cking sh-t EVER. Full Story

Minka Kelly & Derek Jeter split

I like Derek Jeter a lot. I like the way he conducts himself professionally. I like how he plays his game. I like his consistency. I like his drive. I like that he didn’t have 5 kids by the time he was 22. This is always what I say to Jacek about hockey players. I don’t know if it’s the small town-ness of hockey players but so many of them have 5 kids before they turn 25. Full Story

Carey Mulligan is indeed in Australia working on The Great Gatsby. Last night she stepped out with Tobey Maguire and some friends to see Can We Talk About This at the Sydney Opera House. Leonardo DiCaprio was not with them. Or, if he was, he wasn’t photographed. I wonder if going to a play is Leo’s down time thing. Full Story
