Dear Gossips,

It’s been exactly three weeks since Drake released Scorpion. So it’s not surprising that Drake has the #1 song on the Hot 100 and the streaming charts. What is surprising is which song it is: "In My Feelings".  Read Full Intro

For the last two years, in 2016 and 2017, we were blessed this time of year. So f-cking blessed. Do you know what time of year this is?  It’s usually the Season of Celine. I’m talking about Celine Dion at Paris Fashion Week. Remember? I KNOW YOU REMEMBER. If you don’t remember, you should cancel yourself. Full Story

There is pure trash happening in the world right now, I know. So, if you need a distraction, perhaps this will do. Joshua Jackson is still popular among us, isn’t he? Nobody ever minds news about Pacey, right? This isn’t news, really, but you could say it’s an update. Here’s Joshua last night at the Sorry To Bother You premiere in New York with a new haircut. Full Story

Ryan Gosling is playing Neil Armstrong in Damien Chazelle’s new biopic First Man. Claire Foy is playing his wife, Janet Armstrong. The first trailer is premiering tonight during Jimmy Kimmel Live! which explains why Ryan was spotted wearing a spacesuit at the Kimmel studios yesterday.  Ryan doesn’t leave his private paparazzi-less bubble much. Full Story

The title of the new Shawn Mendes album is a declaration. Shawn Mendes is the announcement of an artist who would very much like to be taken seriously. The title suggests that these collection of songs will be a statement of who this artist wants to be moving forward. To self-title an album after already putting out two before it is to essentially say, in the words of Jay-Z, “allow me to re-introduce myself. Full Story

I wrote earlier about the British royal family’s ability to “carry on”. And this is what they’re doing, even though there may probably be eight new Thomas Markle developments between now and Saturday. Full Story

It has been almost a month to the day since Shawn Mendes snapped and made it impossible for me to pretend he doesn’t exist. Since Shawn released his two latest, strongest and sexiest singles, In My Blood and Lost in Japan, he has only continued to prove that he’s worthy of our attention. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  The Warner Bros presentation at CinemaCon is scheduled for today. And I’m hoping that that’s why the Crazy Rich Asians trailer was released yesterday – because the studio is, presumably, beginning to build the hype around the movie in front of theatre owners ahead of its August release.  Read Full Intro

Drake does it again

He’s so f-cking good at this. By “this” I mean everything. During a weekend that belonged to Cardi B, Drake still managed to drop a hit song and viral video without looking like the dick who was trying to hijack Cardi B’s moment. Drake’s Nice For What music video makes Drake look good, sure, but at its core, it’s a celebration of dope ass women. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  A cop and a killer are obsessed with each other. It becomes less about the catching of the criminal than it is about the connection between them. You’ve seen this so many times: Heat, starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino is a good example, also Point Break, and Se7en, and every Bond movie, and most recently Manhunt: Unabomber.  Read Full Intro
