Canada Post is asking you to help them support mental health in Canada. The Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health recently gave over $1 million – money their employees and customers raised last year – to 20 non-profit, community-based groups across Canada that directly support those with mental health needs and their families. And they’d like your support to reach their goal of $1.5 million this year. We are coming up on the most challenging time of year for those who suffer from mental illness. Close to 4,000 Canadians commit suicide each year and it is the most common cause of death for people aged 15 - 24. I saw this first hand during my time at Covenant House Vancouver. Disadvantaged youth, afraid and alone, with limited access to resources and worst still, terribly, terribly misunderstood. Full Story
We were watching Saturday Night Live this weekend and he was mesmerised. Not the dick-in-his-hand pervy kind of mesmerised but genuine appreciation. Like, at one point he said, this is a good song. And he meant it. Of course the, um, flexibility is a factor. But it’s more than that. Shakira is incredibly endearing. Full Story
Can you tell them apart? Barely. Lindsay Lohan is too busy to attend alcohol education classes. Because there’s a party every night. Monday evening in New York was the Whitney Museum Gala. Lilo arrived with the worst coloured face ever and a pink coat and flaunted her drugged up face on the carpet. Full Story
Katie Holmes showed up a the Annual Women in Hollywood event last night too, dressed rather conservatively in a black blouse and mom length skirt until she stood under the right light and exposed her bra…and it still wasn’t all that exciting. KatE did stop on the carpet for some “safe” press and mundane questions like: How great is it that you’re a mom!?!? Isn’t it so great that you love your family? Being a strong woman is so great, isn’t it? Great! I’m telling you. Full Story
Is it the first? The first time they’ve posed together? I think so, yes? Emily Blunt and John Krasinski last night at the Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute sponsored by Elle. How f-cking cute? SnapFace thinks he’s cute too. They worked together on Leatherheads, she was all over him like so happy to see you, friend, and hopefully he told his friend to eat something soon. Full Story
Happy Birthday Sarah, here’s hoping for a very smutty year. Sorry I couldn’t make lunch. Sending some naughty Taylor Lautner thoughts your way to hopefully make it up to you. Jillian Am attaching photos of Taylor kissing Taylor on the set of Valentine’s Day a few months ago. You can pretend it’s you. Full Story
Justin Timberlake put on a show on Saturday night in Vegas and invited his famous friends including Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift, Timbaland, Ciara, Snoop, TLC, and more, all in support of Shriners Hospitals for Children. JT has been there for a week… and the Shelf Ass Biel did not join, or was not invited to join. Raise your eyebrows. More on that later.
Check out Pippy’s Kings of Leon music mashup, video below. For more and a photo click here. Justin’s rendition of Use Somebody will be included on the band’s remix album along with performances by Mark Ronson, Pharrell, and of course Lykke Li who, according to the Kings themselves, delivers the best cover of their music.
So Spittle Gerard Butler wasn’t bad on SNL. Not bad at all. This season so far it’s been boys > girls. What’s up? Perhaps TSwizzle can change all that on November 7th.
Was a busy weekend. Scream Awards and Johnny Depp and George Clooney and his Italian Queen in Rome and the London Film Festival and, sigh, lucky New York enjoys a Saturday night of James Franco.
Monday – new posts all day, check back often. And please scroll down for a very late day post on FRIDAY re: Ryan Gosling and some Saturday Twilight too.
Yours in gossip,
For months I’ve been yapping about this girl – Anna Kendrick’s performance in Up In The Air is so impressive, she’s already being buzzed about as a possible Best Supporting Actress nominee, she’s been named one of the Top 25 to watch, and she’ll receive the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival in January. Full Story
It’s very, very, VERY early in the race so of course it could all change. But Colin Firth’s performance in A Single Man has already won him the Best Actor Award at the Venice Film Festival and the buzz continues to build through the first part of the season. Right now they’re saying he’s a lock on a nomination. Full Story
Holy f-ck ARod is clutch right now. Finally producing in the post season, including a bottom 11th homerun to tie the game although it was heartbreaking the way the Angels lost. The series now moves to LA for the next 3 games (if necessary) and lo and behold Kate Hudson showed up in Hollywood on Sunday flaunting ARod’s playground after a workout. Full Story
Nicole Richie will be skinny again soon enough. But it’s good to see she’s not in too much of a rush. Sparrow Madden was born about 6 weeks ago. Some bitches in Hollywood are back to concave stomachs after a fortnight. Nicole seems to be taking her time. Here she is last night at the Noble Humanitarian Awards with a fuller figure than we’re used to seeing from her. Full Story
