There’s a direct flight from Vancouver to Newark and at that time of night it only takes half an hour to get to the city. When I arrived in Newark I loitered for a few minutes like Marcus Flutie in Megan McCafferty’s Perfect Fifths. Was also tempted to take the monorail and write haikus but it was late and there’s a lot to do today.
Will post my thoughts on Perfect Fifths and the entire Jessica Darling series soon but in short: McCafferty is criminally underrated. She is briefly featured in the book section on this site – click here – and will receive a proper asskissing now that Jessica’s story is complete.
As for being in New York – this day can’t pass quickly enough. Am here because etalk and I have been invited to an exclusive listening session tonight for Whitney Houston’s new album I Look To You with Clive Davis and…Whitney herself! Gah!
Not sure how to hold it together in the same room with Whitney Houston. I worshipped Whitney Houston growing up. Afraid I might do something really, really f-cking embarrassing. Like ask for a hug or something.
No but seriously…why do people ask celebrities for hugs???
“Thanks God” there will be cocktails.
Am pretty sure they’re confiscating all gadgets and devices at the event. But if not, of course I will be on Twitter. And if so, will mad tweet about it right after and also blog about it tomorrow.
For now though there’s a full day of gossip ahead. Am posting til I have to do my hair and decide what to wear, which won’t be til early evening. Check back often! And scroll down for articles missed yesterday.
Yours in gossip,
Angelina Jolie and son Maddox were photographed today at LAX flying out…and commercial! Must not be a long trip. Just like old times when it was only the two of them. Remember how little he was? And we’re only 2 weeks away now from Maddox’s 8th birthday. Brangelunatics don’t celebrate for Maddox though like they do for the Holy Twins and the Chosen One. Full Story
LipGloss Zac Efron has been keeping a low profile in Vancouver while working on Charlie St Cloud. Has also not been attacked by LipHards hoping he’ll fall in love with them while signing an autograph or the Twi-Hard preferred method of asphyxiation. On Saturday Zac went up to Whistler and was spotted bungee jumping. Full Story
YES! Finally! They’ve danced around it before, both were unavailable, but now they find themselves in the same city, and single, and more mature, and Cameron Diaz and Leonardo DiCaprio??? Please Sweet Shiloh, please make it so. UK gossips are reporting that they had dinner the other night at Shoreditch House, then went on to a club, then a private party, all the while flirty and touchy, and at one point Cam was even seen kissing his cheek. Full Story
Marc Anthony is now part owner of the Miami Dolphins. Terms of the deal with undisclosed but the point is he and Jennifer Lopez will be frequently spotted in the owner’s box come September. Longtime readers of this site will know that Dolphins are my team. They’ve sucked the past few years but came back strong last season, redeeming themselves from the disaster that was 07/08 and, well, it’s not like I’m not used to loving and losing. Full Story

The Toronto International Film Festival has released more features on its schedule, most notably Jennifer’s Body on Midnight Madness Opening Night. You know what that means? Megan Fox headlines Jennifer’s Body. It’s her first non-Transformers film. There’s no doubt she’ll come to Toronto to support it. Full Story
Michelle, Duana and I were moaning about Zadie Smith last year – so young, so brilliant, has taught at Harvard and Columbia, and will become a full professor at NYU in 2010. She’s only 33. Love her. Hate her! We felt even worse about ourselves after reading this article on Jon Favreau, President Obama’s chief speechwriter, then just 26 years old and featured in the New York Times. Full Story
Drugs make you paranoid. Just ask Mischa Barton. And it’s worse for these twats running around Hollywood – young, insecure, and ignorant. Dangerous combination. No secret, Lindsay Lohan is a jealous bitch. She’s jealous for attention. She needs to be at the centre of it all the time. Full Story
