The Baldwin Report

Unreliable and second-hand gossip from around the world*

Justin Bieber

Tabloid headlines like Bieber Starts 2013 on a Sour Note and Justin Bieber has a Not So Happy New Year were flooding the newsstands after a paparazzi photographer pursuing the pop star was struck by a car and later died from his injuries. The photog was trying to snap a photo of Bieber and his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, sneaking into the Four Seasons Hotel when the accident occurred. How terrible for Justin… although I can certainly think of someone whose 2013 started worse…

Russell Crowe

The Oscar winner has been getting mixed reviews for his performance—particularly his singing voice—in the critically acclaimed Les Miserables. Recently, former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert criticized the film, saying producers tried to make actors into singers. These opinions matter. I also heard Honey Boo Boo thought Helen Mirren really phoned in her performance in Hitchcock.

Prince William

Wills was forced to abandon his pregnant wife during a quiet New Year’s Eve and join his R.A.F. troops on a search-and-rescue mission after a ‘man overboard’ was called in. Prince William joined the search for a man who had been blown into the ocean during extremely high winds. Well, we’re all thinking it, so I’m just going to say it: typical man. Leave your pregnant wife home alone to go hang with the boys.


Lindsay Lohan and her criminally enabling mother, Dina, kicked off the New Year in style. The pair was spotted cocktailing all day New Year’s Eve at trendy London bistros. Patrons of the hip C London restaurant reported that at dinner, Lindsay looked dazed and Dina was stumbling around. Five, four, three, two, one...Happy 2008!!!
