Rumour mill Is Anne Hathaway preggers? Maybe. But I really only mention this so that I can segue into my theory that Hathaway is headed toward a Britney Spears style breakdown. Exhibit A: Super short haircut. (Although, admittedly, Hathaway’s ‘do is a little chicer than Brit-Brit’s shaved head). Exhibit B: Exiting a car without panties on. (What was she thinking? Who goes to a big event without underwear? Who, I ask you?)  And Exhibit C: Emotionally unbalanced behaviour. Like the bizarre Golden Globe acceptance speech where she referred to her trophy as a  "blunt object which I will forever use as a weapon against self-doubt.” Oy. And, of course, THIS. Verdict: She’s two red bulls and a shoeless gas station adventure away from going the full Britney. Single tear.

Sports desk Ok, we almost never cover sports gossip here—but this has been a doozy of a week for super star athletes. First,
Lance Armstrong sat down with Oprah to finally admit that he is, in fact, a huge liar who took drugs repeatedly, and intimidated and harassed people to protect his secret. Then, in case you missed it, some big deal football player in the States named
Manti Te’o was busted for having an imaginary girlfriend.
Verdict:  Slow clap for Lance Armstrong
finally taking accountability, but single tear for Manti Te’o cause that’s sooo embarrassing.
Back in Business Oscar de la Renta told
WWD that he has offered John Galliano use of his design studio in New York for the next three weeks.

“John and I have known each other for many years and I am a great admirer of his talent…He has worked long and hard at his recovery…everyone deserves a second chance, especially someone as talented as John…Life is about forgiving and helping people.”

Verdict: I’m on the fence. How do you guys feel? You ready for Galliano to make a comeback?

Mobama got bangs! Her new ‘do makes her cheek bones look amazing. So I’m in favour!  Also—follow her on Twitter @ FLOTUS. And while you’re at it, follow us on Twitter @ellecanada. If you get a knock at the door, and Coco Rocha’s on your front step, don’t be alarmed.
She’s a practicing Jehovah’s Witness. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj hate each other, and this
supercut of them fighting is totally worth watching. Did Taylor Swift
get breast implants
? What happens if you put the Fresh Prince theme song through Google Translate?
THIS (and it’s amazing). Happy Friday!
