Rihanna was spotted around LA in a car on Thursday night, the evening before her 21st Birthday. To celebrate her, we took a look back at her remarkable career so far. This afternoon she released her first statement thanking her fans for their support and saying that she "remains strong" during this difficult time. As we have said before, there's more healing to come but for now seeing Rih looking gorgeous hearing her speak of strength is pretty incredible.
Patrick Dempsey held a Portland magazine with himself on the cover as he left lunch in LA yesterday. While he was checking out his feature article, last night on Grey's, his character Derek was dealing with serious stress and difficult decisions. Offscreen, he seems happy to stick with the show, but his colleagues are a different story. The show's creator, Shonda Rimes, tried to clear up the rumors that Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are leaving Seattle Grace, but even so it's always something with this cast.
Kate Winslet spoke at a ceremony honoring her longtime agent, Hylda Queally, last night in LA. Marion Cotillard, Abbie Cornish, and Freida Pinto were also on hand for the event, where Kate opened up about her pre-Oscar jitters. She said, "I'm permanently anxious . . . I wish I could tell you I've got it down now — that I have a system that involves baths and lavender and whatever. But I have no plan, I have no formula. You just go with the flow." Kate is gearing up for her big weekend — and so are we! Pop, Molly, and Buzz will be reporting live from the Oscars, giving you firsthand coverage from the red carpet, press room, and Governors Ball.
