Chicken Fried Coachella?

That’s the rumour. Britney Spears to perform at Coachella. The timing works with her tour schedule and Madonna’s done Coachella before too but… At least Madge tries to sing live. And does so for most of her shows. Britney can only lip-synch, and badly at that. Not sure if it’ll go over well with that crowd. Full Story

The Oscar Roundtable

Every year Newsweek puts 6 of them in a room and turns on the video. They interview each other, they discuss their “craft”, they squirm, they show off, they hide, they joke… it’s fascinating. Especially with the current crop: Frank Langella, Brad Pitt, Mickey Rourke, Sally Hawkins, Robert Downey Jr, and Anne Hathaway. Full Story

Not moving out

Lainey Posted by Lainey at January 23, 2009 07:22:21 January 23, 2009 07:22:21

Last night at the opening of The American Plan on Broadway, Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick out together in public for the first time since Star Magazine reported that she’d moved out of their house. Star has been all over their fragile marriage, for once seeming to get it half right last summer on a cover story about Broderick cheating on SJP…with a woman. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My mother called me last night after seeing me on tv on eTalk. She asked why my skin was so coarse and rough – in Chinese the word is thick. “You look like a rice picker in the fields”. Then she ordered me to pull it together for New Year. Because we’re having dinner and her friends will be there. In 48 hours she’ll be able to criticise me in person. Can’t wait.

But first, am cleaning and purging from now til Saturday. Because after Sunday night, you’re not allowed for 3 days. Don’t wash away the good luck!

Oscar nominations this morning! And George Clooney took his head (and his ego) out of his ass. Yay!

Thursday – fresh smut all day.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Thanks for sending the GOOP book guide - I have many, many copies! Will comment later!

Exclusive photos of Ryan Reynolds in Vancouver today working out before heading to the Wolverine set. As you can see, he looks great, clean cut and ripped, and beautiful Hollywood skin. Does he wear foundation to the gym too? Jokes! Chill! Ryan wraps in a few days and will likely be heading back to LA. Full Story

Bringing porn to the Oscars

MUCH better than that old lady sidesweep from the other night. This is more like the Jolie. A very, very beautiful Jolie, her hair thick loose and cascading around her shoulders (and lighter?), wearing a beautiful grey coat, no waxy skin with Brad Pitt’s hand on her ass at the Paris premiere of Benjamin Button tonight. Full Story

Remember when…

Nicole Kidman was supposed to star in The Reader? Would today have been the same if you replace Kate Winslet with Granny Freeze. Heh. Oscar nomination day, everyone is being so gracious. So let’s not. Hanna Schmitz, who spends a large part of the first quarter of The Reader completely naked, was supposed to have been played by Kidman. Full Story

Thanks to all of you for forwarding. Looks like my Gwyneth has A LOT of subscribers? See? You hate her but you can’t help it! OK, just teasing. As mentioned last week, this is the one worth looking at: Gwyneth Paltrow and her friends and their recommended reading list. Let’s judge her book taste. Full Story

Slumdog vs Goliath

So you know by now, it’s Slumdog the Underdog vs Benjamin Button Goliath at the Oscars. Understand who Academy members actually are: old people and Hollywood players. This is why Crash won so undeservedly over Brokeback Mountain. Because they voted for their friends. Benjamin Button is a Hollywood movie. Full Story
