Dear Gossips,

So the MiniVan Majority has its Batman. Ben Affleck is Bruce Wayne…


We’re covering this story in two parts today as Sarah and I will both break down the casting decision. That’s coming soon. But you know what was trending on Twitter when I woke up this morning? #BetterBatmanThanBenAffleck. It would appear that the choice to make Ben Batman has not been unanimously well-received. 

But first, the MTV VMAs are happening on Sunday. I’ll be live-tweeting through the show @laineygossip then a full wrap-up will follow on Monday. As for that ‘N SYNC reunion – Joey Fatone arrived in NY yesterday and TMZ was all over him at the airport about the rumours. Click here to watch Joey deny that they’ll be joining JT when he receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. As you can see, he’s super chatty, almost like he’s overcompensating for what he’s not saying…?

OK so if they do end up showing up but they DON’T perform and they just end up standing there, is that the same? Definitely not the same. Who gives a sh-t if all they’re doing is clapping at JT like he’s QB1? They can do that from their living rooms. At this point though, if they’re not deep into rehearsals, since it’s been years since some of them have been on a stage, I feel like that’s what might end up happening. All that hype … becomes a shrug…

As Taylor Swift and Kanye West come in for the save! That might end up being the moment of the whole show.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,
