He raps?

So Joaquin Phoenix said he was retiring from acting to focus on music. We all made the assumption that he would slowly fade away based on his reclusive personality and his handwriting a few weeks ago: BYE GOOD. Happily this does not seem to be the case. Even the ones who shun the spotlight can’t help their addiction to the spotlight…see? How else can you explain this? Turns out Joaquin is shooting a doc with close friend Casey Affleck chronicling his journey from actor to musician. Full Story

Circus preview

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 26, 2008 07:31:29 November 26, 2008 07:31:29

A 30 second clip of the Circus video has been posted on BritneySpears.com. See video below. She still seems kinda spacy, lacking an intensity that defined her earlier work but word is there is more polish behind the dances moves. More than Womaniser at least when she seemed half a beat off. Needless to say, she’ll be working on that hardcore in the next few months. Full Story

Dinner with the family

Hayden Panettiere had dinner with her brother, her mother, and her boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia last night. Very cozy. And creepy. Like…it’s legal now and all but if JailBait Miley Cyrus’s 20 year old boyfriend is a loser for dating 15 year old who just turned 16, what does that say about Milo and Hayden’s 31 and 18? Anyway, photographers were quick to point out that Hayden’s dad was not with the family, this of course after the beat-down scandal after which Hayden and her mom downplayed the incident, blaming the cops for overreacting. Full Story

Alone at the ballet

Actually no. Valentino was there to keep her company, so at least one gay was by her side … and a orange one at that…just not the one she was hoping for. Seriously, how fashionable is it to look as though you’re being asphyxiated? This is Sarah Jessica Parker last night at the New York City Ballet opening in a killer short dress but no one to appreciate it. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Have you seen A Colbert Christmas yet? If not, you must. Only Colbert could make Toby Keith funny. The kind of funny that stays with you for days. So you’ll be in an elevator and remember something about the show, like Jon Stewart hitting the high notes, and you’ll start giggling to yourself as your neighbours slowly inch away from you the crazy person giggling to yourself in the elevator. That funny.

Sigh.

Colbert makes up for the dumbassness of Heidi and Spencer. Britney’s launching her comeback and those two fools thought it’d be a good time to make a publicity play…?

Please. Enough.

Scroll down for late Monday posts including Orly, Little Sci, and Robert Pattinson.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Those haters from the Westboro Baptist Church have announced their plans to protest the Vancouver production of The Laramie Project. In response, a peaceful counter-protest celebrating love, compassion, respect, and acceptance will go down on Commercial Drive at Grandview Park on November 28th from 5-8 pm. See you there? Click here for more information.

The Laramie Project runs in Vancouver from November 26 – December 6. To buy tickets, click here. Help make this ignorance go away.

Legs at Letterman but no Vince

Reese Witherspoon outside Letterman studios today for an appearance with David to promote Four Christmases in theatres tomorrow. She’s been working hard on the promotional trail, on the carpet, morning chats, magazine covers, and shouldering the responsibility for the movie, the sole face of the film thus far, even though she’s supposed to have a co-star. Full Story

Kate, Kate, Kate and the GMD watches football

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 25, 2008 16:46:00 November 25, 2008 16:46:00

It is a new world. A world the GMD is not altogether familiar with. These days, the number one movie at the box office is sold at the mall. Many malls across America. These days you have to hustle. Tom Cruise hasn’t had to hustle in a very long time. But Tom Cruise must hustle now. Valkyrie is on the brink of disaster. Full Story

Merging the dogs

Apparently they’re about to move in to his new New York apartment together and are tentatively doing so in LA as well. This would mean making sure her remaining dog, the one that ate her 2nd dog, killing it tragically as she was negligently in the other room, will have to live in peace with Justin’s two pooches. Full Story

Being thankful for Paul Rudd

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 25, 2008 11:36:26 November 25, 2008 11:36:26

He’s not for my loins, but my friend Michelle and no doubt many of you have the hard quiver for Paul Rudd for a long time. Understandably so. Not for me but totally understandable. Paul Rudd is terribly underrated and ridiculously talented and sooooo funny. In a subtle way. And in a fearless way too, as evidenced by his recent naked stint on Saturday Night Live. Full Story
