The documentary Whitney about Whitney Houston’s life and legacy premiered at Cannes last night. It’s the second high-profile doc on Whitney Houston released in a year. I saw the first one, Whitney: Can I Be Me, at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto and I was left disappointed and pretty f-cking enraged by how much of the film focused on the salacious parts of Whitney’s life. Full Story

Kristen Stewart posed with her shoes on last night at the Palais in Cannes. And then she took them off to go up the steps.
