First of all! Our new book, MESSY, comes out ONE MONTH from tomorrow, so pre-order it and find it on your doorstep whenever Amazon feels like shipping it, which will probably be anytime in the next three weeks, honestly. Second! Our first book, SPOILED, is now out in paperback, so you should ALSO pick that up. (It’s apparently now also on audiobook, which is neat. And also a little surreal because, obviously, the person whose voice reads it in my head is, well…me. The sample on Amazon includes the reader saying the word “crotch sweat,” just in case you needed to hear a well-modulated “crotch sweat” today.) Third! The Met Gala is Monday night, so next week should be FUN. We’re live-blogging it for The Cut. Finally:

– RIP, MCA. Here’s an amazing oral history of the Beastie Boys that New York did on the 25th anniversary of License to Ill. (New York)

– As you know, I love The New York Diet on Grubstreet and this one, by Ms Courtney Love, is a must-read. (Grubstreet)

– Fug Nation! You are going to love this, because I know how you feel about fonts. Let’s just say it’s like a matchmaking game for fonts. It’s called Type Connection. SOME OF YOU ARE GOING TO BE OBSESSED. (Type Connection)

– Let’s look at the libraries of famous people. Not, like, the decor. The CONTENTS. (Flavorwire)

– I feel that all I need to do to seduce you into reading “The Top Ten Scariest Heirs and Heiresses” is mention that one of them occasionally goes by “Cobra McJingleballs.”  Which you’d think was awesome except he seems SERIOUSLY TERRIBLE.  Some of these people seem simply troubled, some of them are really cracked out, and a variety of them went out with Paris Hilton. (The Jane Dough)

– You may have already read this New Yorker piece about hate-watching Smash, but if you haven’t, and you hate-watch Smash –is anyone LOVE-watching Smash? No — you must. (The New Yorker)

– You want to read about Chloe Sevigny’s co-op. Not to go all Rachel Zoe on you, but I DIE for her entry-way wallpaper. (NY Mag)

– One of Lainey’s readers suggested — for GOSSIP and amusement — Eddie Cibrian play the Richard Burton role in the Lilo Liz Taylor movie and all I can say is YES. (Lainey Gossip)

– Now they’re trying to rebrand fig newtons as just NEWTONS? Is NOTHING SACRED? On the other hand, I now want to buy a box of them, just so that every time I take them out of the cupboard I can hiss, “NEWTONS,” a la Seinfeld. Okay, then, carry on. (Time)

– Kim and Kanye are ALLEGEDLY shopping for engagement rings. They are SO getting married. This is going to be such good gossip. I give them AT LEAST 75 days. (Celebitchy)

– I really enjoyed this interview (it’s video) with Rachel Dratch about her new book, her surprise baby (at 44!) and her career. I would also like to point out that her hair is really cute like this. (TresSugar)

– I don’t know if I could stand to fly on Hello Kitty airlines. OR COULD I? (Girls of a Certain Age)
