It’s a good day already. New Idris Elba photos! He was at LAX yesterday. And while I know I don’t need to give you any more information than that because you’ll just be looking at the photos anyway, there’s more. He’s heading to Glastonbury so we should get some new shots of him there. Full Story

We open today with shots of Jennifer Lawrence and her bodyguard in New York by request from many of you who’ve come to enjoy the value he adds to her pictures. These images might be the best ones we’ve had of him to date. Even without the dog. But the dog doesn’t hurt. Look at that face. Full Story

Even when I’m 90 I will still know every single word to this song. New Order’s Bizarre Love Triangle, obviously. Substance! God, that album. For an entire year, I used to get ready to Thieves Like Us, pretending I was Molly Ringwald. Anyway, Brandon Flowers (you didn’t think I would start the week without him, did you?) is continuing to tour the UK – The Desired Effect topped UK sales charts in its first week – and performed last night in Manchester…with Bernard Sumner. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last week I used Miley Cyrus as an excuse to talk about Brandon Flowers. Have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with Brandon Flowers? Anyway, in that post (click here  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

If you’re in Canada returning from the long weekend, we posted a few articles yesterday so please scroll down to get caught up.

I had a deadline last night which seriously cut into my Brandon Flowers creeping time. The album is out now. And I have a flight later so he’s coming with me to LA. He, however, will not be in LA because he’s been in the UK the last few days. Plays a show tonight in Dublin. On Friday he performed on Graham Norton. After the song was done, he was invited to join the couch, next to comedian Michael McIntyre. Who could not get over that face. It is a spectacular face. So spectacular that Michael, well, he couldn’t contain himself. It’s almost like …he’s confused by it. Like he can’t quite believe it. The expression on his face is hilarious. Start at 3:45 below to get right to the interview if you don’t want to sit through the singing. BUT WHY NOT???

Just indulge me for a couple more weeks. As my friends have pointed out often, I’m fickle. My crushes never last long. Sooner or later I’ll see him in a pair of pants I don’t like and it’ll be over.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

I’m sorry, I can’t stop. Last night before bed, Jacek was watching the news and I had my headphones in, cranked up loud. He was asking me something and I couldn’t hear. Then he tapped me and I still didn’t react. He finally had to shove his face into the side of my head before I noticed.

“Are you creeping Brandon Flowers again?”

What?

I’m obsessed with this album, not unlike how obsessed I was with Taylor Swift’s 1989. Because both are so unapologetically, gleefully POP. The thing with pop, and my relationship to it, is that it came first for me. It was mine. I grew up in an immigrant home. My Chinese parents didn’t have a music library. They didn’t, couldn’t, introduce me to whatever it is you want to call “classic rock”. Pop was on the radio. Pop was what was there for me to discover. Pop was the first love. And it was a door too. Because pop isn’t snobby. Pop doesn’t tell you that you can’t go and learn about punk afterwards and then move on to soul, folk, metal, and on. I’ll never not have an iPod without New Order on it. Or Duran Duran. And in this new interview Brandon Flowers just addressed rumours that he might be collaborating with one of the bands, or both. OMG.

Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. Photos and recap on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

I’ll switch with Guy Ritchie

Let me leave you with this for the weekend…because this actually distracted me for a few minutes from my obsession with Brandon Flowers. PS. Brandon is performing tonight on Graham Norton. He’s doing I Can Change. OK but back to Charlie Hunnam and his lap. Guy Ritchie posted this on Instagram. Full Story

This isn’t helping my Brandon Flowers problem

Brandon Flowers was on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Two Brandon posts in two days. This isn’t helping my problem. Because… well… the voice. Some people live? They’re sh-t. Him? The notes are there. And his energy. His charisma. His FACE. I mean I thought he was all of it with short hair. Full Story

Brandon’s back

Thanks to Henry who sent this to me because I would have missed it otherwise. Brandon Flowers. His back. No shirt. NO PROBLEM. Henry asked if he was too tanned. Or skinny. Not for me. I like skinny. I prefer lanky over juiced up. So this is cranking all my gears. And I’ve been accelerating on Brandon for a while. Full Story

Yeah. F-ck yeah. Brandon Flowers was at the Tribeca Film Festival last night for a screening and then he performed at a Frank Sinatra tribute…Christ Jesus… in a tuxedo. At one point he sang Come Fly With Me. With that voice. Even Bono worships that voice. That voice in combination with that face. Full Story
