You thought I was talking about Chavril, didn’t you? Chavril is the first couple of Canadian music, ok? The Great Canadian Love Story was always McGosling, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. And there’s been a sinkhole in Canadian hearts ever since they broke up and DID NOT GET BACK TOGETHER, even though people keep, futilely, hoping for it. Full Story

US Weekly has been on a tear lately on exclusive hookups and breakups. They were all over the Charlize Theron/Sean Penn split. They broke the news yesterday about Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch (we’ll get it to, hang tight), and they also reported on Wednesday that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are done, again. Full Story

Last night in New York. Little Shop Of Horrors. Ellen Greene in her defining role. Supported by Jake Gyllenhaal as the dorky Seymour. There are two more performances today and then that’s it, super exclusive. Every review I’ve read so far has been excellent. For Greene that’s not surprising. Full Story

This week, Ellen DeGeneres launched her lifestyle site, ED by Ellen. And it’s great. You weren’t expecting that, right? The celebrity lifestyle business is so overrun with reality show stars pimping waist cinchers and movie stars curating monogrammed cocktail napkins that it feels like there literally isn’t room for another one. Full Story

My head is exploding right now. Not because Matt Damon has a ponytail (although that’s some impressively thick hair, non?). But because Matt Damon and Andy Lau are shooting a movie together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are at a press conference together. Matt Damon and Andy Lau are laughing together. Full Story

“Happy 30th birthday to our resident sunshine and member of the downtrodden leggy blonde brigade Anna, from her gossipy friends. While we know that this birthday seems loaded, we can't help but be excited for your new decade and all the promise it holds. You're starting it out with the best of both worlds - a newly-minted Canadian citizen who lives in an island paradise, you're using your charm (and rapping skills) to schmooze with tennis stars, and continuing to use your expertise and native Cancerean healing abilities to bring your clients peace and happiness (and delicious food). Full Story

Tomorrow is Canada Day. As you know, Mimi is my favourite way to leave for holiday. Mimi is still on holiday. With James Packer.

Since it’s Canada Day tomorrow, and most of us in Canada are currently wrapping up for the day off, it does feel, for us here anyway, like a Friday bury. The timing works in America too as it’s Independence Day on Saturday and many in the US are taking an extra long weekend. Full Story
