Can Freddie Mercury be replicated?

Written by Sarah Biopics of musicians are really popular for one very simple reason. It has nothing to do with unraveling the life of a beloved figure or learning the stories behind the songs. People will talk a good game about “honoring the life” and “revealing the person” but it all boils down to one thing. Full Story

Written by Sasha TIFF is finally over and if I hear someone say “TIFF’ again I might have to sew their mouth shut. Sorry, it’s been a long ass week and I’m feeling fragile. But as promised, here’s my guide for a few things to look out for this season. All in all, the red carpet attire was pretty boresville-- no major couture moments, no jaw droppers. Full Story

Jon Hamm weekend send-off

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 17, 2010 07:22:47 September 17, 2010 07:22:47

A lot of you were yelling at me yesterday for the Jon Hamm post. Apparently you have work to do? Well it’s Friday. You can f-ck around a little on Friday, can’t you? Jon Hamm spent the week promoting The Town. So he’s visible. And there are photos. And yesterday he was in New York, as handsome as ever, so how can I not post? The Town is currently the most well reviewed new release this week, impressively sitting at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and a more moderate, but still strong, 76% on Metacritic Full Story

My ma has had a rough year. Health issues, weight loss, it’s been a struggle, not only because of the physiological manifestations of her illness but the psychological effects of it too. She’s nuts to begin with and over the last few months, she’s only become crazier. You will never meet a person more afraid of death. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It's a TIFF tradition: my mother, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, demands a key to my hotel room and leaves Chinese soup and papayas every day to sustain me. I call it her Judy Juice. It's magic. I should have offered some Judy Juice to Ryan Gosling.  Read Full Intro

LipGloss, dreams, weed

Had the most random, random dream last night. We were at a party. I was hanging out with Zac Efron, who seems to have replaced his LipGloss with a big boy beard, or at least an attempt at one. Looks ridiculous. Patches of facial hair are not going to land him the kind of roles that are going to Ryan Gosling. Full Story

A better trailer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 16, 2010 13:55:51 September 16, 2010 13:55:51

So there’s the trailer for The Tourist, and then there’s the trailer for For Coloured Girls. I watched it yesterday and then had to watch it again, three more times, and twice today. I love the tone, I love the music, I love how you can almost feel these women, and the music, and the pacing – pacing counts in trailers too! – and I love Janet’s brief clip, the look on her face when she tells him to go. Full Story

Johnny, Keith, and The Tourist

Johnny Depp and Keith Richards went out for dinner last night in London. Perhaps he needed a little inspiration. He’s always said that Captain Jack Sparrow was an homage to the rock legend. Would love to know what they talk about. Yesterday I posted a short preview to the trailer for The Tourist. Full Story

Better...and then not

Porny presented her jeans at Macy’s last night in one of the best dresses she’s worn in a long, long, LONG time. It fit properly. It flattered her appropriately. And for once, she did not look porny. In fact, she looked very nice. And at times her neck even seemed longer. That’s the sign of successful styling. Full Story
