We haven't seen the new Vogue with Drew Barrymore on the cover yet, but People has, and in it Drew Barrymore apparently talks about Justin Long, the "Mac guy" and, by Daily Intel's guesstimate, Drew's 100th serious boyfriend. As is usual with Magical Drew, Long is enamored beyond reason or indeed shame, telling the writer that Drew is full of "beauty and light, and she shines it on everybody who comes into contact with her." And as usual Drew is the happiest and most in love she's ever been. "My cheeks hurt, I'm so happy!" she says. Aw! She doesseem happy! Almost as happy as she did when she was talking to Bazaar in 1996 about an unnamed suitor (Jamie Walters? Tom Green?). "I've been seeing him for about six months," she said then, "and I'm madly, madly, madly in love. I've totally met the person I want to have children with. Without question." Or even in 2006, after she had been seeing Fabrizio Moretti for several years. "Our love is very functional and kind and supportive and communicative," she said. "It's, like, a love that puts good energy onto the world, yet it's private and sacred. It's just a beautiful thing in my life." Oh, Drew. As the women of India wish upon one another the blessing of 100 sons, we wish Drew 100 more boyfriends with which she can be this happy. Because the day she stops having new boyfriends is the day we will probably be dead.
Our review of the Arcade Fire's first sold-out show at Judson Memorial Church last night is brief: The sound was muddy, the crowd's energy was better than usual, the new songs were more introspective than the old ones and therefore less fun, and the experience of seeing a concert in a church wasn't all that special, though the stained-glass windows were cool. But that's all beside the point. The big story we have from the evening came while we were waiting on line for a beer. We noticed a guy — tight black jeans, a scruffy chin, looking slightly familiar — and, yeah, we were checking him out. We eavesdropped as he told the sound guy about how he'd been to McDonald's recently and was disappointed by soggy burgers. "It's never as good as you remember." Our thoughts exactly! We stared longingly. And then we realized who he was: Fabrizio Moretti. And we noticed a cute blonde in a hoodie next to him: Kirsten Dunst. Now, we're not saying that we saw them engage in any couple-y behavior. They were clearly there together. Maybe they're just friends. But we couldn't think of a situation in which their social circles might overlap, unless it involves that Strokes song that was on the Marie Antoinette trailer. All we're saying is that we saw them together and we thought it was odd, and that we cursed Kirsten Dunst for ruining our game. —Jada Yuan
