Lady Gaga Dropped $24 Million On West Coast Retreat

Lady Gaga Catches A Flight At LAXIn these pictures Lady Gaga was catching a flight out of LAX. She didn’t just soak up some sunshine while she was there, either. The New Yorker bought a Malibu mansion while she was in town. For $24 million. RELATED: Lady Gaga rocks a ‘fro in Berlin.

“Mansion” is probably an understatement: this sounds like a compound. TMZ reports:

Real estate sources tell us … the house sits on 6 acres. It has the usual for rich people … lots of bedrooms and bathrooms, his and her walk-in closets, a pool, gym, wine cellar. But it also has a custom safe room and 2 lane bowling alley, bocce ball court and an 8-horse stable.

An 8-horse stable. Does Lady Gaga even ride or will she use it for something else? Goodness! Now you can see why I referred to it as a “retreat” in the headline for this post- LOL. When Lady Gaga wants some downtime, she has a place to enjoy some peace and quiet with all the creature comforts she could want. She should for $24 million ;).

Penelope Cruz Named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive For 2014

The 86th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals A7Esquire has named their “Sexiest Woman Alive” in their November 2014 issue, and this year it’s Penelope Cruz! We haven’t heard much from the actress and mother of two lately; it’s good to see her getting recognized. She’s certainly deserving of the title! RELATED: Penelope Cruz is named one of Harper’s BAZAAR’s Icons by Carine Roitfeld.

In the Esquire article about Penelope, the writer describes her as:

She is impossibly beautiful. When she walks into a room, men start walking into furniture. Up close, however, she becomes almost hard to look at, like staring into the most unflattering mirror. When we meet strangers, we begin scanning their faces for their strengths and vulnerabilities, for the lights and scars that will tell us something about who they are and the life they have lived. Cruz has no physical flaws, the bent noses and crooked teeth we would normally use as signifiers. Her face contains no secrets, at least not about her. But her face tells you and the room plenty about you. If you want to feel like the world’s most judged man, sit down at a table in a restaurant with the Sexiest Woman Alive.

Penelope was a pretty tight-lipped interviewee, however. She declined to discuss her relationship with husband Javier Bardem, saying, “That is for us.” All she would say about her three-year-old son and one-year-old daughter is that her family is the reason we haven’t seen much of her as of late. She declined to discuss details about either of her new movies (the Spanish film ‘Mia Mia’ or her upcoming film with Sacha Baron Cohen, ‘Grimsby). Penelope also asked not to be interrogated about signing the letter that condemned Israel in the Palestine-Israel conflict from last spring. Goodness- the poor interviewer! She did, however, say this:

I’ve played a lot of tricks on myself. I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties. I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist—you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing—how could I call it? A plan.”

I can see that ;).

Teresa Giudice Prison Sentence: She Still Hasn’t Told Her Kids?!

Yesterday, Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison as a result of her fraud conviction back in March.

Her husband, Joe Giudice, was sentenced to 41 months, but won’t begin doing his time until after Teresa is released, so that one parent will be free to care for the couple’s four daughters at all times.

Speaking of the Giudice kids, they’re in for a shock when Teresa turns herself over to the authorities on January 5, as the three youngest girls reportedly haven’t been told that their parents are headed for prison.

“Teresa and Joe decided they were only going to tell [13-year-old] Gia that they had both been sentenced to prison,” a source close to the family tells Radar Online. 

“Telling the other three girls would have just been too hard because of their ages. They aren’t quite old enough to understand all of it. They don’t want to scare the girls.”

It’s a somewhat understandable decision, as the girls are only nine, eight, and five, but it’s a conversation that Joe and Teresa will have to have with them at some point.

The Giudices are right in assuming that the girls wouldn’t fully understand the situation, as based on Teresa’s interactions with the judge, the reality star doesn’t fully understand the charges, herself.

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online to see the Giudices in happier times and relive how it all came tumbling down.

Teresa Giudice: Table Flipping


And now for the classic. Teresa’s face is priceless as she famously flips the table. Bravo. Bravo.

Taylor Lianne Chandler: Michael Phelps’ New Girlfriend Was With Him the Night of His Arrest?

Early on Tuesday morning Michael Phelps was arrested for DUI. The following day Phelps apologized for the incident, but offered no new details with regard to the arrest.

Well, we’ve received some information that may shed some light on it …

Several days later, very little has been confirmed, other than the fact that Phelps was boozing and gambling in a casino for several hours before getting behind the wheel.

Though neither Phelps nor local law enforcement have been forthcoming with regard to new details, we may now know the identity of the new lady in Phelps’ life.

One who was reportedly with him on the night of his arrest.

An anonymous tipster informs THG that locals in the Canton area of Batlimore in which Michael lives have determined that Phelps is romantically involved with Washington, D.C. resident Taylor Lianne Chandler.

And from the sound of things, their relationship is a dramatic one:

“We saw a blonde model type leaving Michael Phelps’ place,” our source says. “She went to the bar across the street, Plug Ugly’s, where she was on her phone… calling and texting and crying at times.”

“The name on her phone she was texting was Michael… She said she was in town from DC for business in crisis management, but she did not seem like she was there on business.”

“She paid with a credit card, Taylor Lianne Chandler. Later she was back and came out of his place crying hysterically as he put her into an Uber.

“People at the bar say they have seen her many times going into his place over the past few months…She was supposedly with him the night he was arrested for DUI.”

The source describes Chandler as a “tall, swimsuit model type.”

The last time we received an update on his love life, Phelps was dating Win McMurry, a sportscaster best known for her work on the Golf Channel.

It is not known if Phelps and McMurry are still romantically involved.

Justin Bieber looks pretty darn happy here in his mug shot, doesn’t he? Perhaps that’s because he is under the influence of… something.

Lady Gaga made her dog Asia wear a ruffled pink bathrobe: cruel or fine?

FFN_Lady_Gaga_STLA_100114_51546960

Here are some new photos of Lady Gaga and her French bulldog Asia in Stockholm, Sweden today. Gaga did like ten costume changes already for the day, just for the paparazzi. I also feel sorry for poor Asia – this puppy does have a F—k My Life Face if I’ve ever seen one. And I hate Gaga a little bit for making Asia wear a pink, ruffled bathrobe. That’s just cruel!!

The worst part about these photos? Two things. One, Gaga’s wig game has gotten really, really busted, right? I think she’s sleeping in that wig. Two, I swear I had to really examine these photos just to make sure that Gaga wasn’t going commando underneath her skirt. UGH. She’s not, by the way. She’s wearing nude panties underneath.

Surprisingly enough though, Gaga is doing a bit better these days. Better career-wise, that is. Her duet album with Tony Bennett is currently #1 on the Billboard charts and it sold 131,000 copies in one week. I’m giving most of the credit to Tony Bennett, who is a national treasure. Still, Gaga’s ArtPop album sold 258,000 copies in its first week, so what do I know?

Oh, and there are rumors that Gaga and Taylor Kinney got secretly married. He wore a ring on that finger, so who knows?

Fashion Police to Be Canceled After Joan Rivers’ Death? Giuliana Rancic Weighs In …

Giuliana Rancic is opening up about her late friend Joan Rivers in a new interview, and weighing in on the future of their popular E! show Fashion Police.

“It was the shock of a lifetime, it really was,” the 40-year-old host said of her longtime colleague. “I had just seen Joan 48 hours before her procedure.”

“We were taping the Emmy Fashion Police show,” Rancic added, “and she was honestly better than ever and she even looked better than ever at 81.”

  • Giuliana Rancic Sexy
  • Joan Rivers in Mink

Joan Rivers died earlier this month, one week after she stopped breathing while undergoing an outpatient procedure on her vocal cords on August 28.

Rancic recalled complimenting the trailblazing, sharp-tongued comedienne just before her surgery, noting that Joan Rivers didn’t take flattery well.

“She wasn’t one to ever take a compliment, but she didn’t say ‘Stop it’ that day … she just kind of smiled and said, ‘Thank you,'” Rancic explained.

“I’ll never forget that, that moment,” she said, given the events that followed. “When this all happened, that was one of the first things I thought about.”

“I just remember thinking, ‘I’m just so happy we told her that day once again how much we love her and how beautiful she is, both inside and out.'”

Rancic and Rivers had worked on Fashion Police with fellow co-hosts Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos since 2009. Will the show go on?

This week, yes. Rancic and Melissa Rivers will next pay tribute to the legendary comedienne this Friday with the special Fashion Police: Celebrating Joan.

“Melissa was Joan’s world. I’ve been friends with Melissa a really long time and just trying to help her out,” Rancic said, adding that beyond this week is unclear.

“They are looking at different scenarios,” Rancic said.

A lot of that will be up to [Melissa] and what she wants to do, along with E! There is no word now — they are seeing what Fashion Police looks like without Joan.”

“A part of me is like, Joan would want Melissa and us and the team to go on and I know she would, but it’s just a matter of can there be a show without her?”

“[Is there] a Fashion Police without Joan? I don’t know.”

One entirely unrelated thing Giuliana is more clear on? The Ariana Grande diva rumors, which have run wild online, but she says are the real deal.

R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014)


R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014). She will never be forgotten.

Katy Perry: ‘Why am I a baby machine? Why can’t I be a mogul?’

Katy Perry

Katy Perry covers the October issue of Harper’s Bazaar in an Asian-inspired shoot. The theme doesn’t stand out on the cover as much as the editorial. Katy thinks she’s super kawaii in real life. At least she’s not committing cultural appropriation again with “geisha style.” This shoot simply favors Japanese gardens as a backdrop. Katy was probably bored, and her poses reflect that attitude.

The interview is more interesting. Katy says Rolling Stone made up her quote about having a baby without a man. She shades pop stars (like Lady Gaga) for talking to their Twitter followers. Katy claims to not care about anything except finding a really smart man. She’s even studying the Dictionary.com app to land this dude:

Her lifestyle: She meditates “five to six times a week and has an “act-out day about every four to six months. I’ll have a cigarette, which I know is absolutely horrible for me, after a few drinks when I’m having a week off. I don’t do black tar heroin.”

Her future love life: “Open. As I’m heading into my 30s I have less time for bullsh-t. I look for the same characteristics: a sense of humor–someone who makes me laugh off the charts– someone who is sensitive, someone who loves and understands music, and who is really smart. A lot of times I’ve ended up with people who have been intimidated by me, unfortunately. They say they’re not, but it comes out in the long run. They’re threatened, or there’s resentment because they don’t know how to handle it.”

She gives “less of a sh-t” as she gets older: “I hear that the 30s are a better version of your 20s, because you know what you want for yourself. I’ve always been very attracted to gentlemen who have quite large vocabularies. One of my favorite apps is the Dictionary.com app.”

On Twitter: “I can go a week without tweeting and be fine. Like I don’t have to say, ‘Goodnight,’ to my followers.” She rolls her eyes.

She loves/hates the internet: “When I do these interviews, a lot of these clips people pull out are like, ‘Katy Perry doesn’t want a man to have babies. I’m like, ‘I didn’t say that. I just said, I’m good.’ Why am I a baby machine? Why can’t I be a mogul? I want to have a baby, sure, but I want to have a career. I want to have a record label. I want to have an incredible tour. So I’m going to have all of those things. Let’s talk about that. It’s like, get out of my ovaries, okay? I’ll do it in time.”

She loses it sometimes: When she’s having an off day, Perry gets “quieter. I can snap a little bit, be a little bitchy to the couple of people around me. Tamra, my assistant, is my closest punching bag. But she’s strong and understands that I have a lot of pressure on me sometimes. But, you know, I went to Santa Barbara, which is my hometown, the other day, and I just drove there, laid out on the beach in my bikini like a starfish, and nobody cared.”

Her fashion: “Whenever the Internet will put me on blast about whatever I wore, I’m like, ‘I ain’t dressin’ for you. I don’t dress for you bloggers who are still wearing bandage dresses.’”

[From Harper's Bazaar]

Okay, I’m a little mean for chuckling over Katy’s endorsement of the Dictionary.com app since she feels bad about not having a great education. Katy did take a cheap shot at hot blogger fashion, so that makes us even. I don’t know about other bloggers, but I have never worn a bandage dress. Our standard uniforms are sweat pants, yoga pants, and tank tops with the bra built in for convenience. None of this “bandage” stuff.

Katy has a right to be upset about being characterized as a “baby machine” if she didn’t really say that stuff to Rolling Stone. No woman should feel like she has to have a baby, but Katy did play that bait-and-switch game with Rusty Brand years ago.

Oh, and the mean-girl blind item that Taylor Swift offered up yesterday? Katy pretty much outed herself on Twitter. Shade!

Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib: Getting Back Together?!

If you remember the infamous Britney Spears meltdown of 2008, then you might remember Adnan Ghalib – the British-born paparazzo and all around D-bag with whom Britney was romantically involved at the time. 

Spears and Ghalib only dated briefly but it was quite the wild ride. After their breakup, Ghalib threatened to sell a Britney sex tape, and she ended up getting a restraining order against him.

Despite the scandalous nature of their relationship, Britney is rumored to be reaching out to Ghalib in the wake of her breakup of with David Lucado

  • Work Bitch Singer
  • Adnan Ghalib: Britney's Ex-Lover

“They never really stopped talking,” says a source close to Britney, adding that Spears and Ghalib cut off communication only briefly at the insistence of Lucado.

Britney is still bound a conservatorship which places her under her father Jamie’s care, so she’s reportedly been forced to communicate with Ghalib covertly.

“Jamie monitors Britney’s cell phone, but she found a way to secretly text Adnan,” says the insider. 

While it’s slightly ridiculous that a 32-year-old mother of two has to hide her flirtations from her father, in this case we hope for Spears’ sake that Jamie’s intervention is successful.

After all, it was her behavior while she was dating Ghalib that landed Brit under her dad’s thumb in the first place.

Reg Jones


Yes, the man who took Britney’s v-card was a high school love named Reg Jones.

Madonna wrote a song about how much she hates ‘copycat’ Lady Gaga

FFN_KM_GrammyArr_012614_51315100

Lady Gaga has copied Madonna many times over her career. Gaga’s music sounds so much like Madonna’s music. Gaga has copied Madonna’s look at times. Gaga has copied Madonna’s whole vibe at times, only Gaga has usually put some coked-out spin on it. Madonna has thrown shade at Gaga over the years in her very Madonna sort of way, never outright slamming Gaga but just letting everyone know that she (Madge) was still the top dog. But no more, apparently. Madonna is working on her new album and sources claim Madge has a song all about Gaga.

Lady Gaga has always credited Madonna as one of her musical inspirations, but it seems like imitation isn’t always the sincerest form of flattery. Madge has reportedly taken aim at the Pokerface singer in a leaked track from her new album Two Steps Behind Me, in which the 56-year-old singer describes her as a ‘copycat’.

‘You’re a copycat, Where is my royalty? You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look,’ Madonna sings in the hard-hitting song. Did you study me hard enough? You’re never gonna be, you’re just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who’s gonna help you out? In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can’t be me. You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you’ll always be two steps behind me.’

A source working closely with Madonna on her upcoming 13th album thinks Gaga, 28 will be ‘mortified’ when she catches wind of the damning lyrics, although it is yet to be confirmed whether the song has made the cut. They told The Sun: ‘They’re very harsh lyrics but Madonna really wants to express herself again. Gaga’s going to be mortified. I’m hearing Madonna may well drop the first of the tracks as soon as November, much earlier than expected. I can’t wait.’

Guy Ritchie also reportedly gets a battering in his ex-wife’s lyrics to another track Heartbreak City in which she describes the memory of their relationship as ‘haunting’ and accuses him of using her for fame.

She sings: ‘Cut me down the middle, f***ed me up a little. You said I was your queen. I tried to give you everything. And now you want your freedom. You got just what you came for, a bit of fame and fortune, and I’m no longer needed. You tore me into pieces, you didn’t have no damn reason. I let you in my kingdom, you helped yourself with everything. I curse the day we met. This memory is haunting me. I wish I could forget.’

[From The Daily Mail]

The Guy Ritchie stuff is eh to me… it happened a while back, I hope she’s still not “what if-ing” that situation. But the Gaga shade is well-deserved and I hope that track makes it onto the album. We need an old-fashioned Madonna-Gaga fight. Also: I hope Madonna does a slam-song about hydrangeas.

11 Tiresome Internet Friends: Are YOU One of These People? (Please Say No!)

Let’s face it. Some people just shouldn’t use the Internet.

This list includes embarrassing parents, celebrities without PR agents to stop them from saying stupid things on Twitter, and anyone who thinks Justin Bieber’s music is actually good.

And then there are the people who haven’t quite figured out just how obnoxious they are when sharing on social media. People like this …

The Does It All Mom


You know the type. She’s waxing the car, shaving her legs, making organic, free range, Bento box lunches for five children, WHILE chairing the PTA ALL AT ONCE. And never chipping a nail.

“Just had a great workout! Now I’m going to juice a carrot! If you don’t juice your carrots you’ll die!” 

“It’s Obama’s fault the Steelers lost! THANKS, OBAMA!”

“My sweet little snookums dollbaby angel face just bought me lingerie and we’re gonna get frisky later!”

Uhhhh….

If you’re one of those people, well, don’t be one of those people.

And if you KNOW one of those people, we feel sorry for you.
