Dear Gossips,

Tomorrow is the release, today is the premiere of Michael Jackson’s THIS IS IT, behind the scenes footages from what should have been his comeback tour in London this past summer at the O2. Many of you lined up overnight for tickets a few weeks ago as the film will only run 2 weeks in theatres to support and celebrate MJ’s final performance.

So how will it be?

Well, according to Elizabeth Taylor, it’s the best sh-t ever, like, for all time, stamped no blocksies. The Dame took to her Twitter yesterday and called THIS IS IT the “most brilliant piece of filmmaking” she’s ever seen, posting hyperbole after hyperbole culminating with “I truly believe this film should be nominated in every category conceivable”. So she’s a little biased. But her love and affection for him is sincere.

Ms Taylor refused to attend the public memorial for Michael and chose to mourn privately. It is unlikely she’ll show at the premiere tonight. But the event will be webcast live from the Nokia Theatre beginning at 4:30pm PDT at www.ThisIsIt-Movie.com and www.crackle.com.

And for those of you who do have tickets to see it over the next few days, let me know how it is? We’re out of town til mid next week, I can’t until then.

It’s Tuesday – new posts all day.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

For now. Will it actually happen? Or will another excuse come up to crack up her plans? Lindsay Lohan was at the Rock the Kasbah event last night and told reporters she’s booked for a humanitarian mission in India next month before American Thanksgiving. Apparently Dina doesn’t want her to go. Full Story

Zac Efron is kind

EXCLUSIVE. Me. I’m Zac Efron’s newest fan. We’re heading to Tofino tomorrow and I will force Jacek to sit through 17 Again. Maybe some High School Musical. Putting my name on the list for advance tickets to whatever he’s releasing next. Because Zac Efron has just made a huge difference in the life of one young man. Full Story

Thanks to Erica C for sending this along – an article written by LZ Anderson for CNN Opinion about Chris Brown who is going on tour next month as a “fan appreciation” gesture and has just released a new video, conveniently around the same time as Rihanna. Full Story

He should smile more. So few of his films involve smiling and when he does, as in The Departed, it’s almost like rueful smiling which doesn’t count, or smiling only during the first 5 minutes of the movie and then the world goes to pieces, and he is morose for the next 2 hours. Look how cute he is when he smiles. Full Story

So nice to see you again

Mark Ruffalo. He’s kept a very low profile this year but can be seen briefly in Where The Wild Things Are and was spotted running errands yesterday in Beverly Hills. Looks good, non? Everyone likes Mark Ruffalo. Have never heard anything against him, all journalists enjoy him, he is delightful and sweet and funny and smart and really hot in The Brothers Bloom which is available on DVD now and you should watch it, and three years ago at TIFF, when Joaquin Phoenix was a f-cking mess, it was Mark who kept telling him to go home, to take it easy, who kept his arm around him and held him up, who affectionately protected him and teased him and lightened his mood. Full Story

Porny in India!

Jessica Simpson was photographed in India yesterday, another trip for her pseudo doc series The Price of Beauty. The price of beauty is her personal hairstylist who comes everywhere with her and is likely not paid for out of her own pocket but as part of her contract for doing the show. Anyway, there was a party in her honour last night, she stayed for 90 minutes, then went back to her hotel accompanied by the aforementioned hairstylist and her friend CaCee Cobb who used to be her personal assistant and then quit but could be her personal assistant again because she’s travelling everywhere with her now. Full Story

There were a few of them last night at the Hollywood Film Festival awards gala last night. Let’s start with Jeremy Renner. Because I’ve been remiss in not giving The Hurt Locker enough love. It deserves a lot of love. After all these months though, The Hurt Locker is still getting the love. Full Story

Dom for lunch

Beyonce and Jay-Z were apart for a couple of weeks – he was touring, she was overseas – so they celebrated being together again yesterday in New York with champagne at lunch for a total meal cost of $1,200 on which they left a $500 tip. This is like loose change for them. These photos are actually rather insightful. Full Story

Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig took their ladies out last night at the Worldwide Orphans Foundation 5th Annual Benefit Gala in New York. Hugh, as usual, was in fine form and great spirits, because he’s always in fine form and great spirits, and this is why we love him so much. Daniel, with longtime love Satsuki Mitchell, was naturally much more reserved, still working that moustache for A Steady Rain. Full Story
