There’s only one story, right? The main story: Beyonce, Jay Z, and Solange Knowles. More on that later this morning. Worry though about the person who released that video. Because The Beygency is real.
We’re not even halfway through yet and already 2014 could be a legendary year in gossip. Gwyneth Paltrow is getting divorced. George Clooney is getting married. Elevator drama with the Carters. And Tom Cruise has a movie to promote. Don’t you smell it? Something’s coming for us.
And Cannes kicks off in two days.
And Chris Martin and Alexa Chung.
So, to borrow a word from my Mimi, why are we trifling with a Parisian wedding?
Yours in gossip,
Lower! Justin Bieber went horseback riding yesterday. He had to take his shirt off. Then, when he dismounted, he had to make sure his pants weren’t hitched up too high. High meaning normal, like, hip level. Hip level is too high. The pants must be low enough to see pube. Full Story
The other night around my dinner table, a bunch of 30-somethings all confessed that they were thinking or had thought about going to law school. At least three were still debating it by the time dinner was finished. It seems like a pretty attractive career, right?

Principal photography is getting underway on Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman: Justice League .5, or whatever they’re going to call this movie. They insist the title is not locked in, which means my dream of it being called Superhero Face Punch is still alive. Currently they’re shooting in Detroit, and today Snyder has released the first official image via his Twitter Full Story

You can’t imagine how much joy I’m taking in putting these two in the same article… Blake Lively has arrived in Cannes likely for her role as L’Oreal ambassador but her husband, Ryan Reynolds, has a film in the festival from director Atom Egoyan called The Captive that’s screening in competition.

Cannes has always been good to Gong Li. You could even call it adoration. I was once in an elevator with Gong Li in Cannes at the Carleton Hotel. As a Chinese person, growing up influenced by Chinese pop culture, it was an awesome moment. She was the face of Chinese cinema for a long time. Some might even call her one of the first faces of Chinese cinema as presented to the rest of the world. Full Story
Here’s a story about an actor and a model, two long-past-their-glory-days Brits, that obviously has nothing to do about the story of two very-much-in-their-prime American pop stars involved in a fight in an elevator…or does it?
