Hayden Panettiere dressing like a former beauty queen now divorced mother of 2 trying to hitch her next ride. It’s the Teen Choice Awards. They replaced the red carpet with astroturf. The prize is a surfboard. Would you say, for a 19 year old girl, this is the best costume for the day? Sure. For a girl who desperately wants to be 30, and date 30 too. Full Story

Well there’s the Cyrus way to do it, and then there’s Emma Roberts. One year older than JailBait but SO MUCH more age appropriate. She’s cute without looking infantile, she’s stylish without sacrificing youthful freshness, she’s attractive and yet still seems… pure. Full Story

It’s Miley Cyrus and her mashed up mouth at the Teen Choice Awards last night, all of 16, looking more like 30, and standing next to Fergie, really, it’s like they’re almost the same age. A compliment for Ferg, a shame for JailBait’s parents. And then she got on the pole. At the Teen Choice Awards, Jailbait wrapped it around a pole. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

A brief but bonus Sunday post today with so many photos piling up and so many photos to come as the Teen Choice Awards go down tonight, am attempting to lighten the blog load for tomorrow’s column.

All the screaming, all the adolescents, all the cougar mothers… is this why Posh flew back from Denver? To make sure Becks isn’t too tempted by an 18 year old who will do anything for fame?

More on Victoria below.

Also in this short special weekend edition: LipGloss to LA, and yum… some Jackson Rathbone. That’s enough, non?

Yours in gossip,


PS. Could not resist posting these when I saw them. A throw back to the day. Big Daddy Kane performed at Celebrate Brooklyn 2009 yesterday. It’s ’88. Time to set it straight.

Not sure what this latest f-ckery is all about except to say that it was no ordinary dinner with the moms. After all, it’s John Mayer. In a monogrammed jacket with a friend and their moms as their dates, surrounded by paps, no doubt another John Mayer inside joke that only inhabitants of clever cleverland will understand. Full Story

Twi-Hards are on high alert today. Several members of the cast, including Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, will be present, front and centre, at Teen Choice tonight. Given the intrigue lately surrounding Stewart and Pattinson’s rumoured romance, Twi-Hards are clutching their books to their bosoms extra tightly getting moist at the prospect of real life love between Bella and Edward. Full Story

LipGloss goes home…

He’s been in Vancouver for a few weeks working on Charlie St Cloud, keeping a very low profile, head down, working hard, trying to avoid exposure as much as he can, not unlike his hero Leonardo DiCaprio – discretion and mystery, Leo said. And so LipGloss follows. But while Leo made the decision to ignore the teens at the height of his fame post-Titanic, that decision is much harder for Zac Efron though he’s been slowly plotting his exit, he is still tethered to the Disney rope for now. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

For all the money they spent on marketing the movie, GI Joe desperately needs a big box office win this weekend. As part of the promotional strategy, the studio also deliberately withheld the film from critical review claiming they wanted “the audience to define the film”. Which means, no surprise, that it probably sucks.

And that also means it’ll make a sh-tload of money this weekend.



Because good taste is dead.


If, however, you’re in the mood for something else, something much more delightful, something well written, something that does not insult your intelligence, and not a dumbass chick flick, remember that (500) Days of Summer opens in wide release today. It’s amazing. And you’ll want to see it again and again. I’m sorry I forgot to embed the video yesterday. See below.

Friday. Finally. New posts all day…until it’s time for golf. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. For those of you reliving your 80s after the news about John Hughes – have you seen this? Click here to read about his pen pal. And thanks to everyone who sent the link.

Several Twilight cast members left Vancouver today to head to the Teen Choice Awards in LA. Last night they once again gathered together for a group dinner, walking in a row downtown, reminds me of that press shot of Friends…was it Season 7? By request, Twi-Hards, by request, the photos are attached. Full Story
