Dear Gossips,

Britney Spears performed on Good Morning America this morning –her first American audience, on her birthday, with her boys in the front row, under a top hat, and a body that looked like it was ripped from 2002…did you watch?

Circus needs to grow on me. Still a long way to go, a lot of work ahead, especially choreography, particularly choreography, before the tour …which was officially officially announced. For tour dates click here. Tickets go on sale today!

Are you going? See you there?

Tuesday – new articles all day. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,

Career-wise, for Anne Hathaway, it couldn’t get any better. Rachel Getting Married, the film that has announced her arrival as a serious acting contender, was nominated today for 6 Independent Spirit Awards, tied for most this year with Frozen River and Ballast. Needless to say, Anne received a nod for Best Actress and by all accounts, has a very, very, very good chance at securing a nomination at the Oscars as well, joining her movie Devil Meryl Streep whose turn in Doubt is said to be, as usual, outstanding. Full Story

She speaks her own language

What makes me craziest? Hearing people, when talking about celebrities, actually trying to relate to them – a frequent theme in my inbox: Lainey, be nice. Lainey, try to understand. Lainey, more compassion please. How would YOU feel if x,y, and z? Answer: I wouldn’t. Because they don’t live in our world, they don’t live by our rules. Full Story

KFed speaks!

Check out the alert bar on the People.com website today…Kevin Federline tells his side of the story. Coming tomorrow Wednesday 8am ET. Whaaaaa!!!!!?????? And the timing. The timing could NOT be better. This week, the launch of her new album, in the midst of a comeback, and Kevin has something to say? Is it a response to Britney’s For the Record? She kept referring to him “leaving her”, being preoccupied with his own career… perhaps KFed has his own song to sing. Full Story

Last night’s Gossip Girl… not so sharp. And still a not so sharp Gossip Girl is much much MUCH more watchable than 90210. Seriously. What happened there? How did they screw that up? Sorry to digress. Once again we were treated to a gluttonous display of Serena’s breasts. Once again, Blair and Chuck proved we could easily watch an entire season about them ONLY and the world would be a better place. Full Story

Stay in London...but can he avoid Sienna?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 2, 2008 11:07:28 December 2, 2008 11:07:28

Robert Pattinson returned home to London today in advance of the UK premiere of Twilight. How much you want to bet Sienna Miller will be all over this in a matter of days? If she isn’t already? Not likely. Not yet. Rob apparently went straight to his parents’ so Sienna will have to wait until tonight. Full Story

So they’re not barbies…

Is this a bad thing? The new cover of Tatler features not generic looking genetic freak models, or photoshopped starlets, but 3 wickedly tarty daughters of rock royalty: Kimberly Stewart, Leah Wood, and Peaches Geldof. Love it. Not because of the democratisation of beauty that it represents… f*ck no, who cares? But because English celebutantes are infinitely more interesting than American ones. Full Story

Oh please. Brad Pitt sat down with Ann Curry yesterday for an interview that aired on The Today Show this morning. He went head to head with Chicken Fried Britney on Good Morning America. Will be interesting to see how those numbers shook out. Anyway, he and Ann discussed Make It Right Full Story

Strawberry Scarlett

Scarlett Johansson replacing her famous blonde hair with a shade of strawberry today in Madrid at the photocall for her new movie The Spirit. Pretty as hell. Such beautiful skin. And much more conservative now that she’s a wife… Not feeling this jacket. Especially the speckles. They photograph like raindrops. Full Story

No Cadillac in Canada?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 2, 2008 08:06:41 December 2, 2008 08:06:41

Cadillac Records opens in the US on Friday. Cadillac Records is not opening anywhere in Canada. Why? Because there is no distributor. Which means no one wanted to put up the money. Because no one thought it would make any money? Because… it sucks? Not necessarily. It’s actually getting decent reviews. Full Story
