A fantastic decision. Orly finally giving up the pathetic Three Whiskers – for those new to the site, it’s the sad three little hairs that grew out of his chin during his attempt at manly manliness that never, ever worked. Because there will always be only one fan base for Orly Bloom and now that he’s recognised it, now that he’s embracing his perennial baby face and the rather limp pretty boy appeal that he will never outgrow, he actually looks alright.

Doesn"t look pregnant to me...but hey - she wants us to believe it so let"s indulge her shall we? Nicole Kidman at Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday. Safe to say at this point the face is beyond repair…not only frozen but plumped in the strangest areas. And because of it so painfully, so ironically, so desperately AGED. Full Story
We went party hopping on Saturday night, dragged our asses back to the lobby bar at the hotel late at night, my producer Dean and I looked at each other and had to make a confession – totally embarrassing but had to be done: the highlight of the evening was meeting Howie D from the Backstreet Boys.

Straight up – I’m not a fan of their music. To me…it all sounds the same. But that’s personal preference. And a large number of Nickelback fans probably can’t stand Radiohead…so we’re all even. What I will say about Nickelback is that they are, for the most part, the nicest, nicest, nicest guys. Full Story
Was backstage during rehearsals and soundcheck all weekend. You know how some musicians, when they’re performing live, they sound nothing like the studio product? And then you realise that photoshop doesn’t only apply to a visual package? Not sure how it came across on tv but Nelly live sounds just as clean as it does on the disc. Full Story
Britney has remained trouble-free and club-free for over a week. She has not been photographed with a new opportunist boyfriend. She hasn’t borrowed underwear from random girls. And she will not be reconciling with Kevin Federline.
Rehab? I’d say so far so good.
Friday – blogging on the fly between shoots, refresh often for new posts.
Juno Weekend begins tonight. Party hopping until Monday morning – will dig deep for dish. And now I’ll get my flagwave on: dear Canadians, support Canadian music, check out the Junos Sunday on CTV.
Oh - and if you are in Saskatoon, I’ll be at the MTV party at Walkers on Friday night, Earl’s and the Rock Star Hotel at the Senator on Saturday night – come say hi!
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
Jake this week in Beverly Hills. Slightly (and we’re talking nano-degrees) better in the pants department but still far, far, far from a good hang. Perhaps Reese doesn’t mind his Pants Issue? After all, Ryan has a sh-tty Pants Issue too. Maybe Reese is down with guys who don’t wear pants well? Source Full Story
To look at? JLo all the way. Here she is in NYC again in fur and skulls and open toe shoes - true diva contradiction. And on the west coast in LA, on the same day, here are Ben and Jen Taupe – casual, unassuming, low key, in love, nice, fine, a comfortable couch, boring as all f&ck. But then there’s Jennifer Lopez earlier this week during a performance – Marc joined her on stage, they were intimate, they were sweet, they looked deeply into each others eyes, they sang together…and afterwards she turned to the audience and said: "How you like them apples? That"s my baby, for better or for worse!" Your smutty sense go off? Sure, sure. Full Story
Can’t believe the golddigging hag hasn’t been voted off Dancing with the Stars yet but whatever… that show is where the D List dies a slow death. Her time will come. And when it does come, she has her excuses lined up already. Funny how that works, non? At the beginning of the show, she said she was as strong as ever – riding her bike, rehearsing, claiming she deserved no special treatment. Full Story
Something about this photo kills me. Hugh Grant, forever bachelor, probably afraid of children, out with his godson Damien the other day. Damien of course belongs to Liz Hurley. Nice to see that the two have managed to maintain such an amicable relationship. As for Hugh and his babysitting skills – I’m thinking his role in About a Boy wasn’t so much of a stretch. Full Story
