Although Adele and her people have been meeting with Harper Collins to discuss a possible book deal (with a seven-figure offer), it won't be a memoir because, at 24, she thinks she's too young.

"Adele's never been a really showy person. So it was always going to take a lot to get her to write her life story anyway. [...] But even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn't want to write a book about just 24 years. She feels she'd rather wait until she has more life experience to write about." Fank you. [Belfast Telegraph]

Baby Goose is quickly becoming a parody of himself, but in the BEST WAY, and I love it. While filming his onscreen son's baptism scene in The Place Beyond The Pines, he started to cry. "I didn't know that was going to happen. I was just sitting in the church watching a baby to be baptised, and I don't know why I was emotional, but I was." (And furthermore: "The kid who plays my son - his name is Tony Pizza. It's hard not to like a guy named Tony Pizza. We really hit it off.") [Entertainmentwise]

Like the rest of us, Amanda Seyfried did not have ESPN about her former co-star Lindsay Lohan's future downward spiral when the two shot Mean Girls.

She's been feverishly following news of a possible musical adaptation on Broadway. "I desperately want to be Regina," she says. When they were shooting, she had a great admiration for the film's lead, Lindsay Lohan, though they weren't really friends. "She's talented." A pause. "Was." Another pause. "I mean, I don't know.... She was so bright-eyed."

Another reason why Adele is the best. She won't be releasing any turgid ghost written 'memoirs' soon. And to me she is just saying 'Thank You' in a regular West Norwood accent. *shrug* If you said 'fank you' to her and told her she sounded 'cute' - she would probably look at you like this. Whatevs, darlin'.
