Bumper Fluff: Which mag is Gwyneth Paltrow boycotting?

1. Bingle-ton is offish! 

Sam Worthington has made it official. He and Lara Bingle are ON.

First came this photo off his personal Instagram account:

Then came his confession to Fitzy and Wippa that he has met a ‘lovely, lovely girl who he was extremely grateful to have in his life.” (He is talking about Lara Bingle.) The verb “smitten” is also being thrown around in relation to the pair.

Gwyneth Paltrow.

3. Gwyneth: “We do not negotiate with journalists.” 

Vanity Fair is set to publish a cover story on Gwyneth Paltrow, even after the star tried to stop the piece from running. The New York Times, who ran a story on the magazines 100th issue, reported that Paltrow has been encouraging her friends not to cooperate with the publication. These rumours have everyone thinking that the upcoming article is going to be a MASSIVE GWYNETH TAKEDOWN. One thing is for certain, they have got us itching for a copy to read!

5. Missy Higgins scarred by Qantas vegetarian option

Missy Higgins has ranted on Facebook about the vegetarian option she was offered on a Qantas flight. Reportedly she was disappointed by the lack of butter, margarine, cheese or chutney present on her sandwich, which she also declared inadequate saying: “two pieces of dry bread with a limp piece of lettuce, two slices of old raw capsicum, a measly piece of cucumber and three slithers of dry carrot does not a sandwich maketh.”

Higgins said that she shouldn’t be punished for choosing not to eat certain foods. The post on Facebook has garnered a massive response, with 1300 comments both congratulating her on her bravery but equally questioning the pointlessness of her first-world rant. C’mon guys, maybe she was trying to ‘steer’ Qantas in a new direction? (Sorry. Not sorry.)
