Just after this year’s Met Gala, Gwyneth Paltrow trotted over to a USA Today journalist and snotted out this nasal complaint: “I’m never going again. It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all.” The Goop had spoken, and the Goopy subtext was that Gwyneth is simply too elite, too fancy, too special, too high-brow, too exquisite to mingle with the peasantry of the Met Gala. But what if we were ignoring a particular part of her complaint? “It was boiling,” Goop wept. I will believe that. It must be a special kind of hell to be wearing thousands ofMore >
Oh, Miley. I just don’t know what to do with you anymore.
Don’t get me wrong. I adore Miley Cyrus. My daughter still holds fond memories of “Hannah Montana” even though Miley herself would sooner forget that show’s run than appreciate the millions of dollars that arrived with being a bona fide Disney sensation. Now that Miley is 20, I can appreciate her new look, and she’s a very cute young woman who holds potential in some entertainment field. Yet Miley is still pimping her autotuned music in which her singing voice sounds exactly like her talking voice. That is, a bit nasally and notMore >
In case you missed it, X17 had photos (you can see them here) of Robert Pattinson driving his big truck off of Kristen Stewart’s LA property on Sunday. It looks like the flatbed is full of bags and boxes, and Rob is said to have taken the two dogs as well. Meaning that Rob has officially moved out!!! What does this mean?! I hope it means that he’s over it. I hope it means that he’ll spend a few months reflecting on the relationship (and perhaps having a few one night stands just to see what’s out there) before settling into a relationship with someone less grumpy and moody. For now,More >
Last week we had so much to cover that I ended up not saying anything about Radar’s last story about LeAnn buying Twitter followers. Radar reported in April that LeAnn seemed to buy 50,000 Twitter followers (or robotic followers, Twitter-bots) to up the number of her “followers” ahead of her album release. Radar then said last week that she bought even more – about 100,000 new Twitter-bots so that she now has more than 560,000. The number jumped by more than 100,000 literally overnight.
And what is she doing for those Twitter-bots? Well, she’s continuing her path to famewhore everyMore >
January Jones has a new New York Times profile – you can read the whole thing here. It’s not very flattering towards her, but that doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ve been covering January’s interviews and shenanigans for years now, and I think that in real life, she’s a piece of work – I’m saying that with a mix of judgment, bitchiness and admiration. If I have to give January credit for anything, it’s that she really doesn’t seem to give a crap about what any of us say about her. She gives cryptic, annoying, self-satisfied interviews. She openly fools around with married men, engagedMore >
When I was covering The Great Gatsby’s Cannes premiere, I included 20-year-old model Cara Delevingne in the Carey Mulligan post. I wasn’t think too hard about it, I was just trying to cover everyone I wanted to discuss. I had a moment of “Huh, I wonder why Cara is in Cannes?” but I didn’t give it too much thought because so many models come to Cannes to represent whatever brand they’re the “face” of, plus Cannes parties are some of the best in the world, and there are tons of rich dudes who love to party with celebrity women. Perhaps now is the time to provide the link to The HollywoodMore >
I really have to give Net-a-porter’s relatively new online magazine (The Edit) a lot of credit – they’re doing a better job with interesting editorials and celebrity profiles than most fashion magazines. The Edit also skews older too – they’re not parading 20-something celebrities on their covers. Which is nice, because women in their 40s don’t drop off the face of the earth, you know? Their current cover girl is Lucy Liu, current star of CBS’s Sherlock Holmes drama, Elementary, starring Lucy as Dr. Watson and Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock.
I watched the first few episodes of ElementaryMore >
Everybody has chimed in about Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy at this point, and from a celebrity perspective, it’s been all-positive, although I’m waiting to see how the tabloids and/or Chelsea Handler spin this. Brad Pitt issued a statement hours after Angelina’s NYT op-ed came out, and most celebrities have tweeted well-wishes and positive thoughts to Jolie. And now Brad’s mom Jane has issued a statement! James Haven too.
After she revealed she underwent a preventative double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie’s family members are voicing their support.
“We’re so very proud of Angie, this
Here’s a photo Selena Gomez posted on her Twitter yesterday with the message, “Hope all the amazing moms had a great day! I have the best momma in the world ) I love you so much!” That’s her mother Mandy Cornett, who is totally pregnant again. Mandy gave birth to Selena when she was 16… which makes Mandy 36 years old right now. Good God. I can’t even imagine having a 20-year-old daughter at that age.
In other Selena news, she just told a radio station that she and Justin Bieber are done for good. Which we’ve heard before. Selena and Justin seemed to reunite in April, with SelenaMore >
Lana Del Rey covers the June issue of Canada’s Fashion magazine to promote herself, I guess. Okay, that was probably a little bit harsh. Lana does actually hold a bit of relevance lately since one of her songs, “Young and Beautiful,” appears on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. You can hear the song here, and to me, it pretty much sounds like every other Lana tune. This Fashion spread is very vintage inspired like many other Lana-centric photoshoots, and I have to say that she does have an amazing figure. As far as the mood of her modelling goes in this shoot, I think she’s trying way too hard,More >
