That is not her boyfriend

UPDATE: see below... That is not her boyfriend. Because her boyfriend is not that cute. And hopefully not a relative. This is my girlcrush Kristen Stewart last night leaving a store although it totally looks like a gifting suite. Not sure who the dude is but she was also with her bestie and Twilight’s Nikki Reed. Full Story

Best of 2008: Girls Like Us

By Sheila Weller. My parents were immigrants. Their Western musical knowledge when they arrived in Canada was limited to the Beatles, Doris Day, and Elvis. Eventually my dad discovered Simon & Garfunkel and he karaoked Bridge Over Troubled Water (don’t you laugh!) at my wedding. So I did not grow up in a house with a vast library stocked with the classic albums, with the rock gods, the R&B pioneers, the jazz greats. Full Story

Making it work

It’s her way… and it’s the way of her world. You suffer through certain things, you make sure the outside stays pristine, which is why she and Chris Martin, as I reported earlier this week Full Story

He’s never been happier

It’s Travolty in France, still shooting with the androgen of his massage fantasies Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The film is called From Paris With Love – something about a spy although originally he probably thought it was a romance. Still, spending every day on set with someone as pretty as JRM is making JT very, very happy. Full Story

Seems like everyone popped in for a pre-holiday tweak, non? From the Brange to the GMD to the JLo everyone looks so fresh and pulled! Check out Jennifer Lopez last night out for dinner with Marc Anthony – she was gorgeous last week on the Benjamin Button carpet and it appears the pretty flush has carried over. Full Story

Best of 2008: Xenu the video

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2008 07:40:55 December 17, 2008 07:40:55

I almost forgot! I almost forgot about the video that made our lives! The theme from Mission Impossible, the GMD’s crazy cackle, the GMD’s crazy serious face immediately following his crazy cackle, the Xenu gibberish spewing from his mouth, and then his acceptance of that award swearing allegiance to LRH… it’s a far cry from the current iteration of Tom Cruise making his press rounds and it’s why we need this reminder – for those of you weakened by his remarkable publicity charms and yes, I’m including my colleagues at eTalk who were hypnotised by him last week. Full Story

Mickey the leader

Last night The Wrestler premiered in LA and we’ve been talking since TIFF about the Oscar buzz, about his performance, and right now, Mickey Rourke appears to be the leader. Based on performance, absolutely they say he deserves it. He is outstanding. But as you know, as illustrated by the fact that a lesser movie called Crash managed to outvote Brokeback Mountain, it’s all about the voters. Full Story

No Jada, No GMD

At the premiere of Seven Pounds last night in LA – Will Smith, a rare carpet self promotional occasion withOUT his wife. Ordinarily not a big deal. But it’s been bizarre the comments he and Jada and even Rosario Dawson have been making lately. Rosario plays Will’s love interest in the film. Full Story
