A new interview with the incomparable Karl Lagerfeld. I would give up Michael Phelps for 24 hours in the presence of Karl Lagerfeld. No doubt. It’s a long read, click here for the article, but if you stick through it, you will be rewarded with nuggets like these:“They sent a private jet. Full Story

The New Old Move

This is Jennifer Aniston – seen yesterday out and about in Beverly Hills, photographers reporting that her mood seem to vacillate from near tears to happy smiles in a matter of seconds. Indeed, it’s been a rough couple of weeks for everyone’s favourite Friend. It’s the public humiliation from the aftermath of the John Mayer saga, it’s the fact that yet another one of her publicity strategies has backfired, it’s that her media team is now scrambling, unable to decide on the next move, a move made even more difficult considering the most recent moves have been scrutinised and analysed and said to be lacking. Full Story

Chicken Fried No VMA

Larry Rudolph confirmed it yesterday – Britney will NOT be performing at the VMAs. Boo. But performing is one thing, appearing is another entirely. Am told there is still a chance for that and why not? Can’t say it enough or more enthusiastically: Brit is looking better and better. SO much better. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Am suffering from Olympic withdrawal.

For two weeks, my husband and I leered together at the television every night. Me – swimming. Him – every event featuring scantily clad female athletes with the exception of the Chinese gymnastics team and their merry band of 5 year old leapers.

Final edition of the Olympic Freebie Five – new entries: Canadian bronze medallist Priscilla Lopes-Schliep with the gorgeous skin and the killer abs. And the tenacious Simon Whitfield who dug deep to bring home silver. Love.

At the very top though, dethroning my boyfriend Michael and even Usain Bolt, who else could it be but Matthew Mitcham – achieving the impossible by defeating the Chinese. Don’t think my main ‘mo Darren has been able to drag himself out of bed since Matthew tucked and piked his way to gold. His gay parts are probably still aching.

Can you blame him? Matthew Mitcham is a bonafide flaming quiver. For more of Matthew Mitcham click here.

And now we wait four years for London 2012. David Beckham represented London 2012, reminding me that he’s been neglected for much too long. For half the summer, in fact, in favour of The Dark Knight and Michael Phelps.

That ends tomorrow. Tomorrow the Freebie Five will be restored. Becks will return to his rightful place at the top. He is helping me with my Phelps fixation.

Monday – am blogging all day. Check back often!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Vanessa Hudgens performed last night at the PNE in Vancouver and apparently the audience could barely hear her weak little warble. Sass Jordan played a show at the PNE in Vancouver Friday night and rocked the house hard. That’s all.

Sit DOWN Vanessa Hudgens

She was in Vancouver last night to play a show at the PNE. Arrived in town yesterday – seen here in these exclusive photos by Punkd Images – and decided to drop in for some luxury shopping at Holt Renfrew before heading to the venue. Full Story

Shelf Ass Jessica Biel produced and starred in a short film and screened it at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday. Pippy came along to support her but did not walk the carpet, opting instead to duck into the theatre while she posed with the movie’s director. As a result, Shelfy had to make do with this article at People.com Full Story

I hear that before heading to England, Phelps spent 3 days in Vilamoura, Portugal relaxing with friends. Full Story
