Madonna was at the Berlinale last week to present a few scenes from her film W.E. to potential buyers. It was an exclusive event. Press strictly forbidden. There was also a Q&A after the clips were presented and Madonna, in a gesture that demonstrates how badly she wants this, declared to the money people in the room that she’d be willing to travel to promote the film. Full Story

Written by Duana Okay, so there’s a what-you-missed-on Glee which is basically just last week, plus some Sue. I get my eyes all ready to roll… Will feels great until Emma runs in because she found that Sue is going to commit suicide. Full Story

This is why the Globes are by far the most fun to watch. Because of the cutaways. Because of what happens right before they go to commercial. When these motherf-ckers get up and start mixing tables. Like when Diddy stood behind Marky Mark, practically panting, waiting for Marky to turn around and acknowledge him. Full Story

As you know, Gwyneth Paltrow has been hustling HARD recently in service of Country Strong, opening wide tomorrow, so hard there hasn’t even been a new GOOP. G wants this so badly she’s been flinging her Try everywhere, even breaking her usual silence on her marriage, dropping bits about Chris Martin into conversation, dropping bits about her ex-boyfriends Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck during interviews. Full Story

You’ll learn nothing important about Lea Michele in a Lea Michele interview. Good gossip about Lea Michele however turns up in interviews with other people.

Chill. I know that’s not the official term. But I only have so much room in my titles and “the wife of the Prime Minister” is a f-cking mouthful so can you not be such a tightass this one time and just deal? Because otherwise you won’t fully enjoy the amazingness of these pictures. Full Story

So there’s a new fragrance – Intimately Yours by David and Victoria Beckham. And this is the ad that comes along with it. I guess you have to believe that it could happen because they’re married. That they really would go for it in a lift, like Victoria is capable of spontaneity. I suppose. Full Story

Twilight Tit-fat

From one Try Girl to another... Twilight’s hardest Try Girl is undoubtedly Ashley Greene. Why do the Substitutes on a team always pose harder than the Starters? Lea Michele, at least, is the headlining, uber-talented lead on a hit show.

Totally down with Lea Michele’s dress. And she’s totally down with her own dress. Because she’s giving herself an aneurysm posing in it. Wonder if they have to ask her to leave the step and repeat, like if some poor wrangler gets assigned the task of ahem-ing Ms Michele to make room for the 10th Kardashian. Full Story
