Sometimes when I’m in mixed company and people ask what I do, I get some flack for being an entertainment writer. Usually it’s from men, and it’s always a bit of a condescending take: entertainment news is shallow, it’s silly to like gossip, tabloids are for dumb people, it’s dangerous to worship at the feet of celebrities etc. Full Story

Here to ruin the high we’ve all had from the Sony email leak, check out these shots of I Can’t Ariana Grande at Disney World yesterday performing for a pre-taped Christmas special. If there was no darkness, there would be no light. Full Story

Ariana Grande was in Australia today to promote her new album. There was some drama. Apparently the media was made to wait an hour. Pfft. With Mimi it’s at least 3 hours. Then, when she was ready for the first photographer, her people supposedly passed on some strict instructions: -No relationship questions -Doesn’t want to talk about Mimi (As IF!) -Nothing about Sam & Cat or Jennette McCurdy (I don’t know what this means and you don’t need to explain, I’m good) -Justin Bieber -Her grandfather’s death Also…and here it comes… *DON’T use natural light. Full Story

For the last two years Beyoncé has owned our hearts and minds – for me, Life Is But A Dream marked a real turning point in the marketing of Queen B, but as far back as 2008 she was telling us that she was going to run the world. Beyoncé married Jay Z in 2008, her parents split in 2009 (it took them a few years to hammer out the divorce), and in 2011 she dropped her father as her manager. Full Story

As IF Terrence Howard

 This b-tch. Terrence Howard played Rhodey, Tony Stark’s best friend, in the first Iron Man movie. He was good in the role. I enjoyed their chemistry. I enjoyed his exasperation every time Tony behaved like, well, Tony. Clearly Howard enjoyed himself too. Because he wanted more money to come back for the sequel(s). Full Story

Amber Heard covers FLARE but won’t talk about Johnny Depp

The cover is soft and pink – reminds me of Diane Kruger’s FLARE cover a few months ago (click here for a refresher – but the subject seems intent on being as UN-girly as possible. As Amber Heard tells the magazine, she’s more into muscle cars than heels. Full Story

Scarlett Johansson presented at the Tony Awards last night. She looked great. Love the cut of this tuxedo jacket. Love the lip colour so much. It’s a scary lip colour to try. I tried it a few months ago -- even darker than this -- and was put off initially because the lips were drawn exactly on the lip line. Full Story

For years I have been telling you she's not the sweetness she's been selling you. And still people are surprised. At a recent Faculty of Celebrity Studies event, I told a story about Reese being a dick and some people were surprised, like they couldn't believe it. Because she goes to church and has a nice smile. Full Story

After 3 consecutive Dudes We Like posts, let’s bring it all down with a douchebag. Clearly I’m in the minority with the Justin Timberlake fatigue. His relentless assault over the last couple of months totally worked. The 20/20 Experience is expected to exceed 800,000 copies in first week sales, making it his best ever, over FutureSex/LoveSounds which, frankly, we can all agree on this right?, is the better album. Full Story

Why don’t you make it more obvious?

Here’s what I wrote in the intro to the site last Thursday: “...curiously enough, the prom king hasn’t been seen with his kids since Sunday. Coincidence or conspiracy? Maybe he’ll emerge on the weekend out of obligation, just so it won’t seem so obvious. Full Story

I don’t know why it has to be so hard. Anne Hathaway started the night off so strong: white dress, as is often her wont, cute hair, and the key to everything – Amy and Tina on her side with a joke early on.  For a girl like me, someone who tries to like Anne Hathaway very much, and often feels like she gets a bad rap for being earnest, instead of the insufferable most people paint her as, there starts to be a little bit of hope. Full Story
