There’s Yves Saint Laurent, then there’s thisSaint Laurent, the unauthorized YSL biopic, is coming soon. Today, the first trailer of the Gaspard Ulliel and Léa Seydoux starrer has arrived. Get your translators ready: it’s in French, sans subtitles. [GlamChic]

To date, Robin Thicke’s Paula—an attempt to win back his estranged wife Paula Patton—has sold just 26,000 in the U.S., 530 in the UK, and 158 in Australia. That’s no typo: one hundred and fifty-eight is right. And it seems like the embarrassment of the campaign hasn’t gotten him out of the dog house. The pair have put their $2.985 million Los Angeles abode on the market. Twenty years gone… we just hope it doesn’t rub off on Jay and Bey. [Variety]

Linda Perry may not be trending on your Twitter timeline, but she will be soon. The singer-songwriter-producer—responsible for hits by PinkChristina Aguilera, and Gwen Stefani—is breaking into the television game with a reality competition that promises to find music’s next big talent. “I’m looking for someone to take over this legacy of music,” she said in an interview. “There’s a bunch of kids out there that are hungry. There’s a Sia out there; there’s a Linda Perry… but there is no Bob Dylan to teach someone how to be like Bob Dylan.” [Billboard]

Louis C.K. is half the man he used to be. Ok. Not really. But his namesake FX show has been cut down to size. The network announced that the half-hour dramedy will be coming back for a fifth season, but only for seven episodes instead of its normal 14. [Vulture]

With the announcement of his fifth LP, a surprisingly funny hosting gig at the ESPY Awards, and a cosign from Kanye West, one could say Drake has plenty to celebrate. Added to that list is his approaching joint tour with Lil Wayne. Ahead of their August 8 start date, the pair have released a Street Fighter-inspired trailer, pegging them as warriors, sage and protege, on board for an “epic tournament.” Don’t you love the theatrics? [MTV]

The numbers are in and the average movie ticket in America totals $8.33. If only we could find a cinema deal that cheap in New York City. [The Hollywood Reporter]
