Blake Lively Won’t Leave My Beloved Ryan Reynolds Alone

Today is Ryan Reynolds‘ birthday, and guess who’s celebrating? Me! I am! I have a cake and a party hat and this plaintive-sounding party kazoo and everything. I’m all ready. Happy 35th birthday, Ryan!

Wait. Who’s that? Who’s that anonymous blonde who flew to Boston to hang out with Ryan all Birthday Weekend long? Oh, no. It’s Blake Lively! Gee, she sure got over her last relationship pretty quickly.

Hmph. According to Radar, this is the third weekend in a row the pair have been spied together. I’d never had strong feelings about Blake Lively before—although I’ve been impressed, admittedly, by her demonstrative moxie—but I recently slept through Green Lantern, and I’m beginning to think this girl is the worst. Ugh.

Plus, this particular celebrity pairing is soooooo obvious. Truth is, I was perfectly content believing Ryan Reynolds and Charlize Theron were an item. FROM CHARLIZE TO THIS? RYAN, HOW DARE YOU.

Paul McCartney Is Still Married, Still Partying Down

Paul McCartney wed Nancy Shevell way back on October 9, and their wedding reception lasted all hours of the night, even inspiring a noise complaint.

The couple is still reportedly celebrating in New York City, you guys! They threw another reception Friday night; Jon Bon Jovi and Barbara Walters attended the fete (slow down, Barbara!), and even Yoko Ono was a surprise guest. And guess who else attended! Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters! He’s scheduled to perform at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit Concert tonight, as it happens. Dude. Why is Dave Grohl so busy all of a sudden?

Anyway, wow. Paul McCartney might be an oldy-McOlderson, but he is unstoppable—he reportedly rocked the party till 1:30 in the morning.

Watch This: Neil Young Performs with the Arcade Fire

So! You like Neil Young? His sound is very distinctive. What about Win Butler of the Arcade Fire? (The band’s sound is also distinctive.)

Sure you like them! You have a heart, after all. Here they are, performing Crosby, Stills, and Nash’s “Helpless” at last night’s Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert, Neil Young’s two-day all-acoustic charity benefit. The pairing makes a strange sense, right? Why didn’t I see it before? Hmm.

Beck also played the event, along with Devendra Banhart, Norah Jones, and Dave Matthews. Tony Bennett will perform later today.
