If you love Cate Blanchett as I love Cate Blanchett you will love The Golden Age. It’s the way she speaks, it’s the way only she can deliver a performance so authentically regal, it’s the costuming, it’s Clive sodding Owen standing there dripping in hotness tempting her to give up her virginity…again.

Tom Cruise has been shooting a WWII biopic in Germany for months and production has been plagued with setback after setback. First the Germans couldn’t stand his fraud ass, then there were difficulties securing permits to film at historic locations, and now it turns out several night scenes will have to re-shot as the reels were apparently damaged beyond repair after being treated with the wrong chemicals.

Hungry for attention and desperately afraid we stopped caring, Lindsay Lohan has accepted OK!’s generous offer for her exclusive post-rehab first interview and of course is saying all the right things. She also happily posed for photos. Not surprisingly, her father did too. Still, in spite of the incorrigible famewhoring, there is cause for optimism. Full Story
Britney has apparently reconciled with her mother. Is there hope?
I hope there is hope. Since my nostalgic posting the other day about Britney’s past performances, with a link to her classic Superbowl half time appearance alongside JT and Aerosmith, many of you have sent me more. More trips down memory lane. More reminders of what may be easy to forget in light of the chicken fried loser she’s become.
But Britney was indeed a world class performer, the kind of performer who could fill massive arenas and whip a crowd into a frenzy with crazy quick choreography and super sexy gyrations and while the VMA occasion that comes to mind quickest is her 2001 jungle snake Slave 4 U writhe-fest, I personally prefer the year before. Do you remember Satisfaction/Oops I Did It Again? The nude bodysuit underneath the tuxedo? Sigh. Britney’s old body was all time.
And now that Lynne’s back… perhaps she’ll at least be willing to SEE her kids? Word is Britney bailed on a scheduled supervised visit with a court-mandated parenting coach, resolutely refusing to answer the door, leaving her babies sitting in a car outside her mansion for 40 minutes as the bodyguards buzzed the gate for entry. Multiple outlets are confirming that this went down, including TMZ…but here’s the thing: Britney’s house is guarded 24/7 by the paps. And still there are no photos from the incident. Is that weird to you? Or is it just me? Must just be me.
Monday – Canadian Thanksgiving. Light posting today. Full time returns tomorrow.
Yours in gossip,
The most stylish man in the universe and f*ck me…he has to be gay. Who doesn’t covet Tom Ford? Feast your eyes on Tom, all of him, in Out. His sly arrogance, his pompous attitude, his horny-bitch quotes on women, his horny-bitch quote on straight men, and of course his TOIT ass… Tom Ford is pure heartbreaking quiveration. Full Story
Nicole Kidman was in NYC this weekend to promote her latest Margot at the Wedding – three outings and three scary ass sightings. First – at a screening for Margot, hair down in a virginal dress. You will note there’s not a wrinkle on her face – NOT ONE – in spite the unmistakable gray at her temples. Full Story
At least he’s not a deadbeat dad? What else is there to say? Five children – I think – and three baby mothers... Sean Diddy Daddy Puffy Combs clearly does not believe in monogamy or, for that matter, condoms. Turns out he got a girl pregnant just 5 months before getting his official (at the time) girlfriend pregnant with twins last year. Full Story
Cameron Diaz dated Jared Leto. Cam and Jared broke up. Cam went on to Justin Timberlake, Jared to Scarlett Johansson. Then Cam and JT split and JT had a brief fling with Scarlett. Now Cam is with Bradley Cooper who happens to be starring in He’s Just Not That Into You with… Scarlett Johansson. Full Story
Style recipe for long lasting love: Pamela Anderson married Rick Salomon this weekend in Vegas wearing – shocker!!! – not a white bikini but a white denim Valentino dress. All class, baby… all class. This is, of course, Pam’s third time down the aisle. And her third time down the aisle with a lovely respectable man. Full Story
As I’ve been reporting all week, Britney’s video for Gimme More is now available on iTunes and will premiere on MTV on Monday. Click here to see it. But while critics have been relatively kind in their judgment, having forced myself to go through it twice, I honestly don’t know what they’re talking about. And I love this song.
First of all, there’s no shot that lasts longer than 5 seconds. Crazy cutting all over the place obviously because she couldn’t hold her sh-t long enough to make it through the shoot without incident. You do remember that don’t you?
The dancing, the styling, the everything… all second rate, especially heartbreaking from someone who is known for bringing the slick. Once upon a time Britney was a first class performer. Once upon a time, Britney was overpackaged but visually spectacular. Which is why images like these are so sad. If you dig deep there’s a glimpse of what she was. How pretty she was. How cute she was. How polished she was. What a great nose she used to have.
Quick confession: had some time to kill last night before The Office started. Decided to YouTube my favourite Britney appearance. It was 2001. It was the Superbowl Halftime Show. Aerosmith, Mary J, Nelly, N Sync, and Britney. She was wearing those silver low riders and grooving with Justin, remember? If not, click here to remember. I remember. Those were the days…
And today is the day!!!
Or, more appropriately, tonight is the night. It is Friday night. And Friday Night Lights the 2nd season premieres tonight. The most perfect season of television is back for an attempt at a repeat. If you still haven’t picked up the dvd… seriously, why not??? Why continue wasting your time on the insulting sh-t that is Grey’s Anatomy and ignore the most wonderful show in years?
Please don’t. Get the DVD, mad rush through it this weekend. And then download the premiere episode of season 2 if you have to. I promise… you won’t regret it.
Have a great weekend. Canada – Happy Thanksgiving!!!
PS. Happy Birthday to Brandy… I hear you and Jen J can’t stand the Alba Demon. Clearly you’re my kinda girl though truth be told, word is she’s been relatively bearable on the set of the Love Guru in Toronto. Maybe her co-star’s douchebag antics have given her pause?
