Now that’s more like it! We are still a bit bummed about Eminem cancelling on TIFF ’17, but today cheered us up! See some of the massive stars in and around town today at the world’s greatest Film Festival!
We ❤ Lady Gaga and when a last-minute addition was made to premiere her Netflix Documentary GAGA: FIVE FOOT TWO here, we realized how much that TIFF ‘17 game had stepped-up! Gaga appeared at an previously unannounced Press Conference today for the Documentary and a select handful of fans were lucky enough even to get the Selfie! She arrived right in the nick of time riding shotgun in her SUV.
I, TONYA gets its Premiere tonight and the buzz is feverish for the Tonya Harding Biopic. Stars Margot Robbie and Allison Janney are getting major Oscars buzz for their portrayals of the disgraced Figure Skater and her mother respectively. Also here is Captain America star Sebastian Stan who plays Harding‘s husband. All were incredibly-nice to fans as they did the rounds today!
Boston Marathon Drama STRONGER comes into TIFF ’17 with some buzz and we welcome back Jake Gyllenhaal who by now should be an honourary Torontonian! Also with him were Co-Stars Miranda Richardson and Canada’s own Tatiana Maslany, the latter enjoying a Cali Love smoothie.
After kicking-off TIFF ’17 with Opening Gala BORG/MCENROE, Icelandic star Sverrir Gudnason was out earlier doing Press for the Film. Oddly, Co-Star Shia LaBoeuf who plays his Tennis arch-rival, was missing in action!
After doing such a phenomenal job on her Bad Blood video, Joseph Kahn teams again with Taylor Swift for her latest Single, the v. Lana Del Rey-esque Wildest Dreams! Best of all, rising star Scott Eastwood stars in the moody, classic Hollywood-inspired clip which premiere in advance of the 2015 MTV VMAs!
I know I freak-out every time Mariah Carey releases a new Track, even if it isn’t that great, but really this time it’s really legit solid! The Diva teams with Alternative-R&B Sensation Miguel on #Beautiful, a Summer-inspired Ballad which has a bit of a rhythmic edge. It feels classic, yet at the same time its production and performances make it feel unmistakably current.
The Video, directed by Joseph Kahn (yes, the Man who directed Britney Spears’Toxic), helms and uses his keen sense of light to make a euphoric experience. If Nick Cannon doesn’t mind this chemistry, then I guess we don’t either!
Certain to be one of the Hits of Summer 2013 and just what Carey that much-needed 19th #1!
