Throughout award season, Hailee Steinfeld was doing a great job dressing her age. Her choices were appropriate, attractive, adorable.

Taylor Lautner hired a publicist a few months ago called Robin Baum. One of the best. Or at least Baum is used by some of the best. Since this story broke, Baum’s name has been widely attached to Johnny Depp and Daniel Craig as current clients. But consider too that Baum also works with Ryan Gosling (for several years), James Franco, and Benicio Del Toro, just to name a few. Full Story

If you live outside Canada, and you’ve never been to Canada, you probably don’t know what the f-ck. But Swiss Chalet is one of our iconic chicken houses. But not fried. And you either LOVE it or you HATE it. Especially the Swiss Chalet dipping sauce. Like, I’ve probably had this debate at least 150 times in my life. Full Story

Lindsay LOHAN went out last night in New York. She’s in New York supposedly to spend time with family. Clearly spending time with family in her mind involves stumbling around on the ground at 2:30 in the morning outside of a bar. But, but, but, but… Her shoes were so high! Sure, loser. That must be the reason. Full Story

An Open Letter To Parents With Children

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 18, 2011 07:38:14 February 18, 2011 07:38:14

Written by Duana Dear Parents, Please deny your children their dreams. The child stars you keep complaining about? The ones who go off the rails? That happens because a parent, with stars in their eyes and dreams of fame and living vicariously, decides it’s all right to let the child pursue acting, or dance, or whatnot – and that way madness lies. Full Story

I know Miley doesn’t look so tragic here in photos, and you have to remember, the photo agencies generally don’t post too many of the bad ones on these occasions, but during the pre-show with Seacrest, she was working a significant bloat. Full Story
