Dear Gossips,

Smells like fried chicken all around Toronto but everyone I’ve heard from last night who went to see Britney’s Circus at the Air Canada Centre seemed to be disappointed. Apparently her performance was not as high energy as her others have been…? Hopefully she’ll be more awake for her second show tonight. We sell Cheetos here in Canada too, you know.

I can barely focus today. Project Runway at Toronto Fashion Week is today. Am not sure if I’ll be able to refrain from throwing myself at Iman’s feet and begging her to make me her servant.

Today is Thursday. Am blogging between shoots and a screening and of course Iman.

Yours in gossip,


PS. What’s up Vancouver? We’re a week away from Juno Weekend! Have to be honest – last year Calgary LIT IT UP. Can you top it? For once, just once, as a dress rehearsal for the Olympics, shake off that infamous Vancouver apathy and come celebrate Canadian music in our city.

eTalk will be live on the red carpet at GM Place next Sunday for the arrivals – Sarah McLachlan, Michael Buble, Nickelback, Elvis Costello (ELVIS COSTELLO!!!), and…um… some surprises too. Suffice to say – there will be screaming.

Want to join us? Fans on the red carpet also have a chance of winning free tickets to see the Juno Awards! Last year on the red carpet I gave away a cute little clutch to the first person to yell out Granny Freeze. This year… also an amazing prize. Will tell you about it next week. For now… you must get there. To reserve your spot on the red carpet, email [email protected] or call 1-866-460-4797.

PPS. Smack no kids is not Demi and Ashton or Eva Longoria and Tony Parker.

Ew for some, not ew for all

Many requests come in for more Russell Brand. Russell Brand in Australia today making out with some girl. Really? Him? Appears to be rather enthusiastic about this kiss. He’s making her laugh. An aphrodisiac in some cases yes. But… he looks better in leggings than I do. This is not a hurdle I could get over. Full Story

Before LeAnn…

Those of you who grew up in Canada should remember this… 3Deep. Ring a bell? Canada for some reason is a good testing ground for boy bands. Some producer threw together three random boys from soap operas back in the day and released a song that became a modest hit up here but could not translate down in America. Full Story

Sorry my schedule has been wonk ass all day. Was at press screening for a movie this morning, then shooting for eTalk, now in and out of meetings, then headed to Project Runway. Please forgive. Am rushing to post. To make up for it, to Twilight fans anyway, especially those who lust for Robert Pattinson, and I know there are legions of you because your emails keep coming, here’s some exclusive information about what he’s been up to. Full Story

Beans goes back to work

Hugh Grant is shooting a new movie. It's been a while. Still, the time away doesn't mean he's breaking out of his same old movie mold, oh no. A romantic comedy called Did You Hear About the Morgans costarring SJP - something about a couple in witness protection. Hilarity ensues. But probably no baked beans in Tupperware. Full Story

See? And you know I love her for it! Kristen has been promoting Adventureland. Promotion means junkets. Junkets consist of outlet after outlet filing in for 5 minute sessions asking questions about the movie to air on their respective programs. It's supposed to look like a real conversation in the most contrived of circumstances. Full Story

Don't f-ck with Us

Us Weekly broke the story on its new cover - LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian having an affair. She wasn't stupid enough to outright deny it...but he was. Dumb. You don't f-ck with Janice Min. Us has just posted a video on its site - click here Full Story

Did she try to keep him?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 19, 2009 06:46:48 March 19, 2009 06:46:48

How? Ignore LeAnn Rimes on the cover of Us Weekly and look at that top corner: Jen’s Last Ditch Gifts Am curious. Did she offer him more money to stay? A contract extension? Free pass pee cards? What? Needless to say, the tabloids have not been kind to Jennifer Aniston this week – stories ranging from John Mayer writing a tell-all exposing the “real” Rachel to her late night phone calls to Brad Pitt begging him back. Full Story

If I’m Natalie Portman…

And Ryan Gosling keeps texting me, it’s not even a decision. Automatic molecular reaction. I’m there. Sure…she’s Natalie Portman. She has options. I get it. But is there a better option than Ryan Gosling? Um. No. And please… Don’t say Robert Pattinson. Ryan Gosling >>>>>>> Robert Pattinson. Full Story
