Dear Gossips,

Madonna!

On entertainment and performance value, even two years from 50, Madge is still the platinum standard.

Looked great, sounded fierce, body crazy fit RUNNING on 4 inch Louboutins, the hottest dancers, the best variety, the sharpest choreography…and the Camel Toe. It was a perfect performance. PERFECT. So if you haven’t yet, you must YouTube.

Sorry ‘bout the late start today. Am knackered after a whirlwind one day trip to Calgary yesterday. Was too short a stay to get the full Cowboys experience but my love and admiration goes out to the city and its people: Calgary Stampede is a first class, world class event. Hoping for a longer visit next year but will be back in Calgary in 2 weeks for a killer party. Details to follow.

Monday, live blogging, check back often. Am writing as quickly as I can.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Eva Longoria got married… have you heard???

Not for Me

… but judging from your emails after Equus, definitely for some of you. Thing is, he’s like a son to me. Or at least a much younger brother. After reading Harry and then watching Harry, especially in the latest film, watching him grow, feeling ridiculously proud of his maturity, it’s hard to picture anything but a hug. Full Story

Three Whiskers Orlando Bloom is rockin’ a new three whisker moustache…you likey? Please. Daniel Radcliffe inspires more quiver and even that is seriously marginal. So here’s Orly leaving a party the other night, trailed by a girl the pappies are calling his new romance. Apparently they went home together after getting “intimate” inside the club. Full Story

The Posh Philosophy: always choose skinny and orange over wrinkle-free and healthy. Here they are, the Beckhams at the tail end of their French vacation before making their Los Angeles debut later this week. A rare occasion: both look sh-t together – he with his two tone head to facial hair mismatch, she and her obvious sunburn. Full Story

A Model Thing?

I interviewed a model in Calgary yesterday. Watch on eTalk later this week. Her name is Heather Marks, considered among the top tier of girls in the industry today. Like many of the best, Heather is a freak of nature…and I mean that in the best way possible. Full Story

Can’t do Glam

Sienna Miller for Valentino? WAY off base. Because Sienna can only do casual. Casual one look boho strolling around London… for sure. But high glam in the designer’s signature red? Even the most hardcore Miller fan wouldn’t disagree – she looked horrid this weekend at V’s anniversary celebration. Full Story

Uma & Valentino

Valentino celebrated 45 years this weekend with a star-studded, extravagant, seemingly interminable celebration consisting of party after party after fashion show. One of the lowlights had to be Sienna Miller – more on that later. Among the highlights, as usual – Uma Thurman who chose light and pale shades throughout the festivities as illustrated by the three showings attached. Full Story

Punk Ass Poseur ain’t no thief

Was a tough one for Avril Lavigne last week. First a Canadian songwriter, Chantal Kreviazuk, questioned her artistic integrity, then a lawsuit over her song “Girlfriend” claiming she ripped off a band called the Rubinoos put the punk ass in position where she felt she had to defend herself. Full Story

Had the same problem before getting married – every guy I’ve ever dated with the exception of maybe, MAYBE, two…all douches. Like disgusting. Revolting. Sick. Then again, I’ve never had her qualifications. But Britney… Britney could aim so much higher. But still she persists. Full Story

Once upon a time, they said Britney would take her crown. And I agreed. Now upon a time, no one who can live up to the legacy. Not yet. Perhaps not ever. Which is why she is Madonna. Other observations: did you love Keith Urban’s set with Alicia Keys? Loved. Without Granny Freeze, perhaps there is something there. Full Story
