Raine in Calgary is in quarantine with the flu. Sent me an email yesterday with a request for some Glee. How about Joe and Mr Shue?Joe Zee, the influential creative director of Elle, sat down with Matthew Morrison about the show and about his own career plans. Mr Shue is working on a solo album. Big band modernised, that’s the concept. Full Story
Reader sightings received yesterday… First up: a very low key Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, engaged and enjoying New York yesterday accompanied by his dog from Jamie L: I was just at the Washington Square Dog Run (NYC) and in came John Krasinski and Emily Blunt with his dog. They were really cute and sat on a bench and laughed with his arm around her the whole time. Full Story
The video. Dean just sent it around with the caption “She doesn’t dance, but she also looks sober”. This, of course, killed me. Because Dean always finds the perfect way to say it. Chicken Fried Britney’s glossy 3 and a half minute fluff piece boiled down to simple steps and sobriety. Full Story
Drama. Beanie Sigel’s Jay-Z diss track – have you heard it? Beanie is signed to Roc-a-fella and some say he wants out buy Jay won’t let him and that he’s still pissed because Jay didn’t come to see him in prison, and had him removed from his September 11th tribute concert. Full Story
For months it’s been all about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and whether or not the book has become the real. Now less than a month before the release of New Moon, Twilight’s other main star Taylor Lautner is making his own play for romantic headlines, dominating the gossip front this week with not one but two highly publicised outings with his new girlfriend Taylor Swift, not seeming to mind the attention at all, and quite the departure from his last relationship when his team seemed to be rather resistant to the idea of promoting his romantic entanglements. But TSwizzle is very,very popular. And New Moon is Taylor’s movie. And they’re so f-cking cute, why not exploit that while it’s there for the taking? More on this later and also on the controversy surrounding the Brange books.
It’s Thursday. Am blogging all day from Tofino.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Did you watch last night on DirecTV? The FNL season premiere? How’s this for episode 2? I hate Joe McCoy so much and this is good. The show needed a villain to Coach’s hero. Also Riggs is getting a cougar. If you need to know more about this click here.
PPS. Remind me again why you’re not seeing this show? Seasons 1 to 3 are available on DVD. Oh right, it’s because you’re too busy turning Jon & Kate into major superstars. Carry on.
The wrap party was last Saturday (and for those of you who keep asking, yes, contrary to what multiple outlets reported, Kristen Stewart was there though she kept it ultra low key and seemed exhausted) but Twilight Eclipse did not actually wrap until late last night/early Thursday morning. It was a closed set, it was Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and it was “Bella” trying to open her flower to “Edward” and some other corny speak. Full Story
Sienna Miller was walking her dog in New York today and they were photographing her and she was arguing with them about photographing her and then she started crying, repeatedly wiping the tears from her eyes. Now I am not an overly emotional person. I don’t cry often, let alone cry in public. I understand that sometimes it needs to happen for some people some of the time…but in this case, in her case, don’t ask me to feel badly and sympathise with her protests. Full Story
