Camila Cabello’s new album, Romance, is due out next Friday, December 6. A few tracks have already been released including, of course, her smash hit with Shawn Mendes, “Senorita”, and there’s no mistaking what the music on her second album is about: love...specifically being in love with him. Full Story

The tour finishes a week from today after a total of four shows in Australia and New Zealand, and it marks the end of an almost eight month long tour for her new album that spanned North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  “I got us a caramel brulee latte.” This is the line where I lost it and couldn’t recover – have you seen Benny Drama’s take on Shawn Mendes? It’s not just that he nails the imitation, it’s that some of this dialogue is so exactly right.  Read Full Intro

Is courage a feeling? Because if it is, it now belongs to the Queen of All Feelings, Celine Dion. It is the title of her new album, out tomorrow. It is the title of the new song, with a new video, just released. Celine is shot in black and white, sometimes in silhouette. She is alone on stage, with her back to us in certain moments, facing a blank screen, a great unknowable future, and she’s telling us that she needs courage – and all the feelings that have ever existed, all the feelings she’s claimed for herself – to do it by herself. Full Story

What did I tell you last week when I posted about Camila Cabello being papped while on the phone, assuring us that she and Shawn Mendes were still together? I wrote that Shawn was on break from his tour soon and that we’d be imminently getting another relationship update - with fresh photos. Full Story

We’re not going to make the “couple of the week” a regular feature. The reason there’s a couple of the week this week is because, well, of the all the celebrity couples you would have expected to be the most-talked-about couple this week, you would have never predicted that it would have been Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant, right?  They walked the carpet at the LACMA gala last weekend holding hands and it’s been headline news ever since. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Here in Toronto, the Raptors got their rings and the city got our banner last night ahead of the season opener. And then we beat the Pelicans. WORLD CHAMPS! I thought Drake would be in his seat – he wasn’t, but we’ll get to him later this morning.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

We had our general election here in Canada last night. So let’s stay Canadian in this space today with a beloved Canadian who generally keeps a low profile, Rachel McAdams. She was seen yesterday doing some shopping in LA.  Read Full Intro

Thanks to Casey for giving me the heads up about these photos, I needed them. It’s Election Day here in Canada and everyone is saying it’s too close to call. There’s been stress for days. So…how about a Canadian we can all agree on?  Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant went out for sushi the other night. Full Story

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
