Last one before The Big Show, Helen Mirren and Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson have swept everything, but as I said a few weeks ago, Eddie Murphy is by no means a lock. The British gave Best Supporting Actor to Alan Arkin who is workin’ it hard, hard, hard on the campaign trail. Would love to see him take it on Oscar night. Full Story

Britney be Whitney

Whitney at Clive’s annual pre-Grammy party on Saturday. Admit it. Once upon a time, you wrote off Whitney Houston. And if you really want to deny it, refresh your memory here – not too long ago, Whitney was Britney. And now, now that she’s purged the Bobby leach, with the eternal love and support of Clive Davis, Whitney is back looking better than ever. Full Story

Britney Backstabbed…again

She’s indefensible, no argument there. And she makes poor choices. Because she’s dumb. So people take advantage of her. They use her, they exploit her, then they sell her out. Is she accountable? For sure. But don’t you feel a little sorry for her…not even just a little? The latest debacle: Isaac Cohen has sold his story to The News of the World, sharing explicit details of their month-long relationship including how often they had sex, what she was like during sex, what she was like after sex, how she liked her sex, how she didn’t like her body, and of course, how hurt she is that people are turning on her. Full Story

Why does this keep happening? Let’s reiterate, yet again, that her tits are terrific. Not big, not small, perfect teardrop shape, great gravity – they’re lovely, along with her hair, they’re her best feature. And perhaps knowing this, they are the features she puts forward most often. Time and again, when she’s down and out, when she’s under siege, Jen goes back to her bubbies for relief. Full Story

The Wrong Gender

She might be single now – amid rampant speculation about why and who, but we’ve apparently all been sniffing at the wrong source. Wrong as in gender. Stepping out AND reverting and not with a dude? Anything for promotion, right? But behind the market push for ratings lies a Sapphic surprise. Full Story

Chinese Chicken & The Keys

Can’t say enough about Dr Cher and Kimberly who drove 3 hours from Key West and 3 hours back for a smutty lunch on Saturday bearing a poultry-inspired gift. Apparently chickens run amok in the Keys - the perfect way to honour my Chinese Squawking Chicken of a Mother, fitting then that I’ve now named my Key West Chicken after the woman who gave me life. Full Story

Grammy Ageless: Sting

All that hype about a Police reunion and only one song? Even Pip got two…WTF??? But still…is Sting a sexy bitch or what? Have to tell you though, I was rather surprised about Roxanne. Kinda predictable, non? And why not a medley? And again, why not more?  Full Story

You know Pip ain’t my thing. And he’ll never be my thing. But if there’s one occasion where I’m willing to concede he might almost be a man, I’d say it’s the first half of his video for What Goes Around Comes Around with Scarlett Johansson. Not particularly imaginative visually or conceptually but seriously, when she’s on the screen – you really don’t care. Full Story

Cate Blanchett: for all time

One of my favourite movies – no surprise here…Shakespeare in Love. One of my favourite lines – Will saying goodbye at the very end: For she will be my heroine for all time. And her name... Viola. Can we say the same about Cate Blanchett? For she will be a style icon for all time. And her name… Cate. Full Story
