I always confuse Andre Balasz with Arpad “Arkie” Busson. Is it the Uma Thurman connection? Balasz was out in London last night heading to Chiltern Firehouse for a Valentino party. He owns it. He arrived at the same time as Kylie Minogue. My first thought when I saw these photos was: oh, they’re dating? That makes sense to me. Full Story

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know how I feel about Daniel Radcliffe. I’ve been interviewing him for almost 10 years. And while he might disagree, in my mind it’s practically a relationship. You’d be crazy not to want a relationship with him. Goddamn he’s so nice. Full Story

Marvel will never be finished with you. Just surrender now, give them all your money, and maybe they’ll let you have every other Thursday for yourself. After yesterday’s bonanza of news, last night during an episode of Agents of SHIELD Marvel aired some new footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron—specifically, they showed (a highly edited version of) the Superhero Clubhouse scene from Comic-Con. Full Story

British Airways released a promotional photo for their new A380 aircraft that, starting today, will fly between London and Singapore. The face of the route is apparently Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s pictured here in one of the BA Club World seats. In an evening gown and heels. Because, I guess, it’s that comfortable. Full Story

Katie Holmes’s own (very boring) story

The new cover of PEOPLE features Katie Holmes, presumably because she has a movie coming out – Miss Meadows. Great! Time to promote. Time to sell. Time to SHARE. After all, that’s what you exchange when you agree to front a supermarket magazine, right? OK, Katie. Full Story

A fundraising campaign has been launched to support the families of both Cpl Cirillo and Officer Patrice Vincent. The funding will be distributed by the True Patriot Love Foundation. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

So I think I might disappoint you again with the following: I LOVE the new Taylor Swift album, 1989. It’s a dance in your kitchen kind of album. It’s a play in the background while you’re getting ready with your team kind of album. It’s a play in your car on the way to the airport to drop off your best friend after the most amazing weekend kind of album.

And it’s not that Taylor isn’t pissed anymore. At the boys, at the broken hearts they leave behind. It’s just that she seems a lot less… petulant? Less petulant in her anger? I never thought I’d want to have a conversation with Taylor Swift before, like a real conversation. And now, after listening to this album, after hearing her music, I’m starting to believe Taylor Swift might have something to say.

Or, again, maybe it’s just that I grew up in the 80s. I can’t resist this sound.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Let’s play word association. Billy Idol. Go. Was your answer Brad Pitt? Thanks to Jennifer Aniston, my immediate word association with Billy Idol is Brad Pitt. I haven’t seen Billy Idol in a long time. Because of Taylor Swift, I’ve been on an 80s music mood. Full Story

So while Marvel’s asserting its dominance over everything nerd, let’s catch up with Batfleck. I know you. I know that there are a lot of you who’ve never been more attracted to Ben Affleck than you are right now, while he’s walking around with his Batman body and his hair slightly longer combed back with a nice wave. Full Story

The casting for Dr. Strange, Marvel’s next signature superhero, has become such a clusterf*ck that for a couple of months now, it has seemed just as likely that a three day old breakfast burrito would play the part as an actual human actor. The latest rumor, coming yesterday courtesy Deadline Full Story

Marvel just broke the internet

A couple weeks ago Warner Brothers announced the future of the DC Cinematic Universe during an investor phone call. They dumped a lot of information on us in the least exciting way possible, and by the end of the day I’d heard from multiple sources that the response from Marvel was essentially, “Let’s plan a rock show. Full Story
