Thanks to everyone who sent this over to me yesterday. There were so many of you, and I’m honoured to know that when you come across an item online directly related to Leonardo DiCaprio’s thirst for Oscar, your first thought is me. That said, we are obviously not the only ones who’ve observed Leo’s desperation. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The New Yorker finally published that long-awaited exposé on TMZ yesterday, have you read it yet? The piece confirms what you probably already know if you live online – that many of TMZ’s sources are celebrities themselves, or at least the people who represent them.  Read Full Intro

Producers of the Grammys confirmed last night that the problems with Adele’s audio were on their end. Apparently a mic got dropped when they were positioning the piano and when they tried to go to a backup feed, there was a sound delay. So, no, it’s not on her. Full Story

Game of Thrones is straight trolling

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 16, 2016 18:01:36 February 16, 2016 18:01:36

Game of Thrones released their second teaser and they continue to troll everyone about Jon Snow’s fate. We see the faces of deceased characters like Ned, Robb, and Catelyn Stark—and Joffrey, but who gives a f*ck that he’s dead?—in the Hall of Faces, as lines once uttered by the characters are heard, then we pan to Jon Snow’s dead mug and as he’s talking about night coming, we move onto Tyrion, Daenerys, Sansa, and other alive people. Full Story

The Hollywood Vampires made their big network television debut last night at the Grammys, performing a tribute to Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister. The Hollywood Vampires, as you know, consist of several proper rock legends, and Johnny Depp, a rock legend in his own mind who’s ostensibly been hiding his musical talents behind acting because the world wasn’t ready for so much good. Full Story

As Duana just mentioned in the previous post about Hamilton – and yes, Duana, you are right about Hamilton, but does that mean she has to text me, literally, EVERY SINGLE DAY, like, 8 times about it? – the back-to-back Hamilton-Kendrick Lamar pieces last night during the Grammys was glorious evidence that the same stories can be told in different ways and that new stories need to be told in as many ways as possible, despite institutional insistence that these stories be contained in one category, separate and safe, so as not to disrupt the status quo. Full Story

Last night the opening number of Hamilton, “Alexander Hamilton”, was performed live from their home stage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. If you know Hamilton, you squealed along at seeing it in ‘real life’, instead of just 15-second sound-ups in the 60 Minutes specials, and then checked to see if any new blocks of tickets had been released. Full Story
