Oh! My! God! You! Guys! You’ll NEVER GUESS Who’s Dating!!!

Leighton Meester and Justin Long Dating?! {Photos, Pics]

This is an interesting turn of events!

Long time on-again-off-again boyfriend of Drew Barrymoore and uh, actor, I guess, Justin Long is supposedly dating Gossip Girl‘s Leighton Meester. The two were seen outside of La Poubelle in Hollywood (my roommate totally works at the restaurant up the street from there, guys) holding hands and chatting it up with fans.

Personally I’m loving this coupling because it’s nice to see Justin move on to a new lady and I think I love that Leighton Meester. No, I’ve never seen her show, but I did illegally download a copy of The Roommate several months back, so I’m pretty happy for her too.

I dunno, I find this much more interesting than her co-star’s newest fling. Any objections?

You Could Be Leighton Meester’s New Roommate!

OK, not really, but that’s what the campaign for her new movie The Roommate will have you believe.

These posters have been plastered all over the country, and when you call the number on the poster, you’ll get to hear a short message from “Rebecca”, the character in the film played by Leighton.

Don’t kill me, but I kind of want to see this movie. More than I want to see the other current Meester flick, Country Strong, anyway.  When I was home over Christmas, my 14-year old sister was obsessed with the trailer and on my third viewing, it totally clicked: This is a modern update of one of the greatest movies of all time, Single White Female.

Anyone who’s ever had any semblance of a weirdo roommate who’s too up in their business can relate to this, and in this day and age, who hasn’t been there? Between college and craigslist, we’ve all unknowingly wound up in a living situation with a total freak. Thankfully, most of us come out of these situations alive.

While we’re on the subject, why not tell us about your worst roommate situation in the comments. Maybe your Single White Female wasn’t even a live-in, just a psycho disguised as a friend you couldn’t ditch. Either way, I love these stories because they make me feel like less of a freak magnet, so PLEASE tell all!

Either Autotune Gets More and More Believable Every Day or (Gasp) Gwyneth Paltrow Might Actually Be Able to Sing

So it looks like the Queen of Good Living has gone and done something that I might be interested in checking out. Gwyneth Paltrow is starring in a new movie, Country Strong (yup, just like in the title of the music video above – a title I despise), and the scenes from the movie as depicted in the music video look kind of intriguing.

Why? Because it’s a movie about an alcoholic country star has-been and Gwynnie is playing the lead role. Anything portraying Gwyneth Paltrow as a washed-up has-been that’s being replaced by, well, practically anyone, is worth seeing in my book.

Gwyn plays the country star who unfolds amidst declining record sales, failing tours, a cheating husband that sleeps with the newest country chippie on the block, and her ongoing battle with alcoholism. The flick also stars Tim McGraw as Gwyneth’s husband, and Leighton Meester as the young love interest.

If you’re a country fan (I’m not) and a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow (um, not again), you’ll probably enjoy this movie. If you masochistically enjoy seeing an overblown harpy lose her shit on screen and flex her ‘acting skills’ (like me), you’ll probably enjoy this movie.

That being said, this’ll probably end up being an Academy Award winner. It’s foolproof.
