Dear Gossips,

Celine Dion kicked off her Courage world tour a couple of weeks ago in Quebec City. Her next stop was supposed to be in Montreal but she’s postponed the shows because of a throat virus and released an apology video to fans explaining that she hasn’t gotten better in time.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

Drake was one of the headliners this weekend at Rock in Rio and apparently it was a mess. Rock in Rio is usually livestreamed in Brasil but without much notice, Drake decided not to livestream his performance, explaining on Twitter that: Sorry to everyone about the @rockinrio  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

I love technology. Maybe, one day, I along with all humankind will regret loving technology, but this weekend technology made me so happy. I was locked in on TIFF red carpets during both finals at the US Open this weekend and while waiting for the arrivals, I was watching the matches on my phone.  Read Full Intro

Shawn Mendes concluded the North American leg of his tour with a show at home in Toronto on Friday night. And it was an emotional night. He played Rogers Centre. It’s a stadium, where the Blue Jays play, it’s where we won our back to back World Series in 1992 and 1993. If you grew up in Toronto, you have an attachment to Rogers Centre – many of us still call it the SkyDome (it has a retractable roof); it’s one of the jewels of our city, so for an artist from this city, to play at the SkyDome is a big f-cking deal. Full Story

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes out together. Officially, like at events, they’re never out together. She’s joined him at the Saturday Night Live after-party but red carpets are not their thing - not even when he’s nominated for an Oscar.  Where their relationship is concerned, then, there is no knowing, no reliable sources. Full Story

Taiki Waititi and Ryan Gosling were seen out for lunch together this weekend. You can imagine the reaction, even though they were apparently joined by other friends. They’re both internet boyfriends. They’re also both popular with nerds – Taika via his association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Ryan because of Blade Runner most recently and, in general, he’s an actor who’s accumulated cool points across several demographics. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Figure skating champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are so good at their jobs that they’ve become the Bella and Edward of their sport. Only, unlike Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, there was never a romantic relationship off the ice.  Read Full Intro

Camila Cabello was in LA for at least a couple of days earlier this week for the Variety Power of Young Hollywood event. As soon as she wrapped that up, she was seen heading out of town – and back to Shawn Mendes. It was his 21st birthday yesterday. They were seen walking around New York City holding hands, not really all that bothered about being GPSed by fans and paparazzi. Full Story
