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,

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

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 7, 2015 20:37:50 May 7, 2015 20:37:50

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

First… Please enjoy these photos of Idris Elba eating a donut. There are, like, 3 people in the entire world who can eat a donut and still manage to look attractive. He would be one of them. Next… Simon Pegg is co-writing the next Star Trek movie. He was asked at CinemaCon yesterday about his progress…and whether or not the rumours were true that Idris would be joining the cast. Full Story

I had it bad for Josh Hartnett for a while. It was after seeing 40 Days And 40 Nights. Why didn’t Shannyn Sossamon become a bigger deal? She has a PERFECT face. God I wanted to look like her. I think I still want to look like her. I certainly wanted to be her. Back to back makeout work opportunities with Heath Ledger and Josh Hartnett? Come on. Full Story

Well Thanks God these photos weren’t released at the beginning of the day because I would have put my hand down my pants and ceased production. Charlie Hunnam in Wales today shooting Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Round Table. Look at his hair. Full Story

After that last post I thought you might want a palate cleanser? Idris Elba is in Cannes for MIPTV to promote Mandela, My Dad, and Me. The perfectly fitted red shirt. Those pants. His kicks. The grey in his beard… I mean I don’t know what else you want me to say about this. I feel like I should just get out of your way. Full Story

As I’ve mentioned 80 times already, the Avengers: Age Of Ultron premiere is tonight. And the two new superheroes, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, will be there for sure. Sarah tells me that Scarlet Witch is a BADASS. And I don’t doubt it. Joss Whedon has taken great care to make the women mean more. Full Story

Deadpool’s hot guy

Ryan Reynolds is currently shooting Deadpool in Vancouver. His character’s face is all scarred up. I know nothing about Deadpool. Maybe Sarah will come at me with some nerd facts but so far, for a nerd, she’s been surprisingly not that interested in the Deadpool thing. That might be a good thing. Full Story
