If you predicted that one of Lady Gaga’s New Year’s resolutions for 2011 would be to keep her pants on, well, better luck next year! While you were busy recovering from your hangover on New Year’s Day, the queen of the Little Monsters sent out a tweet to her 7.5 million followers that read “THE SONG 2 13 11 THE RECORD 5 23 11.” Translation? Her song, “Born This Way,” will be dropping on February 13 and her highly anticipated album of the same name on May 23. She also included a Twitpic (above left) that we, being the classy and reputable site that we are, couldn’t republish without pixelating. Normally, we’d say “Let your imagination run wild,” but in the case of Lady Gaga (PHOTOS), it’s nothing we haven’t seen before.

rnrnEarlier this week, the doddering 84 year-old Viagra addict and certified creep Hugh Hefner got engaged to Crystal Harris, one of his employees who is some 60 years his junior. While many gold diggers wept openly in the streets after realizing that one of the world’s most eligible octogenerian bachelors is no longer on the market, we felt particularly sympathetic for one Holly Madison, Hef’s former #1 girlfriend. After all, not only was she the star of the Girls Next Door — easily his company’s most successful project of the last twenty years — but she also had to frequently let Hef invade her in the holiest of holies.rnrnFor more gross details, read on.rn Read more…
rnrnCompared to the very public struggles with drugs and eating disorders that the Olsen Twins went through, Full House star Candace Cameron Bure’s life always seemed to be genuinely blessed: She got married early to former NHL superstar Valeri Bure, had three lovely children and still has an active career as the star of ABC Family’s Make It Or Break It. However, in her new book Reshaping It All, Candace reveals that she too battled bulimia in the mid-nineties near then end of Full House‘s popular run.rnrnCandace tells People that eating disorders often evolve into a “very dangerous cycle that can just start to consume your life and really take over.” She found herself binging and purging during the first few years of her marriage, but thanks to an improved eating regimen and pursuing a more spiritual lifestyle, she was able to conquer her demons. We think this calls for a celebration. Pizza party, anyone?
The bikini parade in Los Cabos, Mexico continues! After spending much of yesterday soaking up the rays in a skimpy two piece, former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Molly Sims decided she’d switch things up a bit today. No, silly, she didn’t switch to a one-piece (or even a monokini); rather, she wore pink instead of purple. What range of pastel colors will tomorrow bring? We are holding our breath in anticipation!

rnrnAfter months of investigation, the National Football League has decided to fine Brett Favre $50,000 for not being “candid” during the investigation as to whether or not he sent lewd pictures of his junk to New York Jets sideline reporter Jenn Sterger. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback and NFL legend managed to avoid a sexual harassment suspension because there was not enough forensic evidence to determine whether pictures of said junk was actually Favre’s, um, unit. However, if the pictures that Deadspin published were actually of Favre’s dong, we can rightfully determine that the NFL fined him roughly $16,667 for every inch of penis he sexted to Sterger.rnrn[Photos: Getty Images]
It’s been quite a year for Nicki Minaj (PHOTOS). The bootylicious Minaj began 2010 as an unknown commodity in mainstream America, but thanks to appearances on VH1 Divas, a hit album, a smack on the ass from Regis Philbin and a rumored sex tape, she’s evolved into one of the music industry’s biggest stars. Now, nary a month goes by without Minaj gracing the cover of a magazine. Witness the March/April 2011 issue of King, which features Nicki on the cover and an interview in which she admits that her dream in life is to appear in a Tim Burton movie. While that sounds interesting and all, we doubt that many people will buying this issue of King for the articles; we certainly won’t!

While most of the country was still busy digesting their Christmas meals, Brandy And Ray-J: A Family Business star Brandy decided to hit the tattoo parlor to get some fresh ink. The sensational R&B star decided to swing by celebrity tattoo artist Peter Koskela’s shop in Southern California on Monday night to get a tattoo of Ganesh that Brandy described on Twitter as the “Egyptian god! Remover of all obstacles:)”. Her tweeps quickly pointed out that Ganesh is, in fact, a Hindu deity and not an Egyptian god, so we hope that she wasn’t counting on curring any favor in the afterlife with the likes of Osiris by getting the body art. Either way, looks hot!

rnrnWe’ve got some sad news to pass along during this otherwise joyous season. The musician Teena Marie, who was famously dubbed “The Ivory Queen of Soul,” passed away yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known, but TMZ is reporting that Marie may have suffered a grand mal seizure during an afternoon nap on Boxing Day. Marie rose to prominence during the late seventies and early eighties, thanks in large part to her connection to Rick “Superfreak” James. She experienced her biggest success in 1984 with her hit “Lovergirl,” which rose to #4 on the Billboard charts. In a strange twist, one of her final tweets contained a quote from an old Sarah Vaughan lyric, “May you never grow old, and may I never die.” She was 54 years-old.
rnrnWow! If you thought that the week between Christmas and New Year’s was going to be a slow one in the gossip world, you were sorely mistaken. People just broke the news that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are engaged AND expecting their first child. Sounds like someone got a shotgun wedding for Christmas!rnrnThe two were first introduced while on the set of Black Swan, where the ab-tastic Millepied served as the film’s choreographer. He and Portman apparently became very intimate during the filming, for Millepied dumped his ballerina girlfriend of three years, Isabella Boylston, and shacked up with the
homewrecker Hollywood A-Lister. The couple has been going steady ever since, and now we have this news to lead us into Awards Season.rnrnOf course, the big question here is this: How will this news affect Portman’s chances at winning Oscar gold? After scoring key nominations from groups like the Critics Choice Movie Awards, she is an early favorite to win the Best Actress award. Will this news make Portman more sympathetic to voters, or will it turn scandalous and ruin her chances? Developing!
rnrnChristmas came early for the pun-loving headline writers of the New York tabloids when Deadspin broke the story that the wife of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan may have starred in a series of kinky foot fetish videos. The sports blog discovered that a woman featured in a number of YouTube videos uploaded to an account called “ihaveprettyfeet” not only bore a striking resemblance to Rex Ryan’s wife of 23 years, Michelle Ryan, but that the two also shared a number of common traits: Both are Virgos, were born in August of 1963, are listed at 5’2″ and, at one time, resided in Ellicott City, MD. Even more damning? The voice of the camera person in one of the videos sounds remarkably like the distinctively gruff-voiced Rex. Whoops!rnrnNow, clearly, what a happily married couple does in their private life behind closed doors is really none of anyone’s business. Rex Ryan said as much at a news conference yesterday in front of dozens of salivating beat writers. “Obviously, I knew these questions were coming,” a reportedly humiliated Ryan explained, “But this is a personal matter and I’m not going to discuss it.” However, Ryan has gone out of his way to attract (and subsequently revel in) the media spotlight since becoming the Jets head coach, and these videos were originally posted to one of the most popular websites in the known universe, so he had to know that these questions would surface someday. The moral of the story? If you want to your private moments to stay private, you probably shouldn’t post them to YouTube.rnrnEver wondered what one of these videos looks like? We’ve got one of the (alleged) Michelle Ryan videos for you after the jump. It’s not quite NSFW, but you probably don’t want your boss creeping over your shoulder while you’re watching it.rnrn Read more…
