Just stretching?

I worked out every day during TIFF Wednesday to Sunday and felt like I was going to die. Have not done anything all week. Am happy. Although I'll pay for it when I get back to Hayley my trainer in Vancouver. But this is Madonna today, after a rock out, full energy show, on heels, dancing her tits off at Wembley, dutifully reporting to the gym for her daily workout. Full Story

Blowing Second Chances

You’d think that she, of all people, would be more precious with her body. Not only because it’s so beautiful but also because she worked so hard to actually keep it. But behind the face and up the nose, there is a serious, serious problem with blow. It started because she needed to keep her weight down, it has continued because she’s a full blown addict, devoting half her time to so called philanthropy, and the other half to hardcore happy. Full Story

Mickey & Ebola

Every year it's like this - so much hype going in surrounding a few projects and what comes out is a dark horse surprise, none more surprising than Mickey Rourke's The Wrestler which has been the talk of TIFF and has placed Mickey in the early lead in the race for Oscar. Yes. Mickey Rourke. His performance is apparently so layered, so moving, and so monumental he's now becoming the new comeback story after Britney Spears. Full Story

Michael & Tina’s Saturday Night

It’s over. And like so many who came before him, I am ashamed. Ugh. Every guy I’ve ever dated, with the exception of maybe, like, three – one of whom I married – has been a mistake. Huge mistake. Hate them all. Like revolting. Like I wish I could take it back. And while Michael and I never dated, I do regret now. Full Story

Jess in Herve

She continues to soldier on – promoting her country album Do You Know at almost every stop in New York. Last night it was Letterman and two wardrobe changes. First a black Herve Leger and peep toe Loubies which she wore on the show and then a long sleeve bore as she was leaving. I like the Herve. Full Story

Madge and all her friends

Madonna played Wembley last night and attracted a rather famous list of ladies to her show including her bestie and mine Gwyneth Paltrow who was seated next to Kate Hudson who happened to be seated next to the divine Marion Cotillard who was just two spots over from Penelope Cruz. On Gwyneth’s other side was a friend she’s taken to the Oscars before – a member of some European royal family. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last night was one of my TIFF favourites: the Joe Fresh party for Patti Smith’s movie Dream of Life at the Gardiner Museum where she performed for an intimate crowd of 200. Amazing. Like there was a sense, collectively, that these moments are dying, that today’s artists simply can’t and won’t sing live, without a machine warbling their voices and several menacing bodyguards keeping the crowds away.

Can you imagine Vanessa Hudgens doing the same?


Counting down to Saturday – I miss Marcus. Marcus can only beat his bestie Kona to the ball if we give him a pity toss. Like an asshole, when he does win he likes to flaunt and taunt. F*cker.

No one parties hardier than Benicio del Toro.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Kate Beckinsale does not need anger management.

PPS. Bottles are welcome at Nicole Richie’s house.

He has a girlfriend

Jim Sturgess last night on carpet for the TIFF premiere of his film Fifty Dead Men Walking – thanks to Tony W for the photos. Also attached – Jim outside the Intercontinental after his junket. My colleague Zain was selected to interview him in our eTalk Lounge. I did not want to speak to Laura for a long time when I found out she’d deemed me not worthy. Full Story

Kanye loses his sh*t – the video

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 11, 2008 12:28:00 September 11, 2008 12:28:00

TMZ has posted the video from this morning of the incident leading up to Kanye’s arrest. Click here to see. Dumb f&cking thing to do, non? The paps may be intrusive at times, absolutely some are too aggressive but they have been invite to join the celebrity ecosystem by celebrities themselves, and if the price of fame means you get your picture taken once in a while at a commercial terminal at the airport… So be it. Full Story
