Dear Gossips,

The Arthur Ashe Courage Award was presented last night at the ESPYs to 141 “sister survivors” who came forward, who pushed back, who refused to accept that their trauma wasn’t valid and that their pain was an insignificant by-product in the pursuit of the only goals: “medals and reputation”.  Read Full Intro

What Else?

I wonder now if this is going to be a thing? Dog mugshots. Because I’m that person. I’m the loser who, after reading this story, thought about setting up one of those pictures for my dogs – like instead of a photo with Santa. Full Story

Taylor Swift, as we know, has been home-basing in New York lately while on tour. She plays three shows at MetLife Stadium this weekend. Taylor had yesterday off and today too. And she was seen last night at a recording studio where she stayed for several hours. There’s really not much else to do in a recording studio so, obviously, she’s working on new music. Full Story

Lauryn was late. We knew that she was going to be late but I had a bet going with Lainey that she would be “on time” for her which means 30 minutes past her set time. Lauryn Hill was over an hour late for her show in Toronto at a venue that has a strict 11pm curfew. So Lauryn had to cut her set short and didn’t play two or three songs that have been on the set list for other shows on her tour. Full Story

“It hurts and it’s not OK.” Classic gossip moment, don’t fight me on it. Paris was recently in Mykonos but didn’t visit Lohan Beach House. That’s how you know these two genuinely dislike one another – it trumps the attention they’d get from posing for photos together. Full Story

Danica Patrick is the first woman to host the ESPYs. She is also the first, and only, woman to win an IndyCar race. That's badass. I want to establish that I know how impressive Danica is as a human being and an athlete before I move on to the frivolity of her relationship status and before I sh-t on her skills as an awards show host. Full Story

Wenn, Backgrid

According to OK! Australia, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broke up because he wanted to have babies and she wasn’t ready. The reliability of any OK! Magazine, in any country, is suspect. But especially Australia. Sorry, Aussies, your gossip publications are pretty low on accuracy. But Liam is Australian?! In this case, it doesn’t matter. Full Story

I have not seen Mamma Mia! and I don’t know enough ABBA to make a go of it at karaoke, and I hate musicals, so Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again had a lot of ground to make up with me. I sat through the whole movie, and I only wanted to puncture my eardrums once, so it did make up most of that ground. Full Story
