The beautiful thing about Zach Galifiankis’ Rolling Stone interview is how clear it is that the comedian could give a tiny monkey-in-a-denim-vest’s bottom about fame or what everyone in American thinks of him. Take Zach Galifianakis’ Ke$ha run-in, for example. “I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day,” the actor reveals about running into the singer at a bar. “She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, six-year-olds – and it’s a bad message.’” First January Jones, now Ke-Dollar Sign-Ha. That man’s just saying what we’re all thinking!
The Hangover Part II star also seems pretty unconcerned with causally revealing The Hangover Part III plot, which the magazine says “ditches the format of the first two and focuses on his character escaping from a mental institution with help from the wolf pack.” Sighs Galifianakis as if he was talking about visiting his great-aunt, “They want to do a Hangover III. I’m getting fricking phone calls already.” Slowly, the distance between Galifianakis and his character Alan gets smaller which each passing day… As it should be.

Sorry, Lady Gaga: Eminem will not have sex with you. The 38-year-old rapper takes a surprising potshot at his Interscope Records labelmate on “A Kiss,” a track from his upcoming Hell: The Sequel EP, a collaboration with Royce Da 5’9″ as Bad Meets Evil. “Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/ She’s still a mail lady/ Wouldn’t f— her with her d—/ You heard it/ The verdict’s in.” In case you missed the pun “mail lady” sounds like “male lady,” undoubtedly a reference to the “Gaga is a hermaphrodite” rumors of 2009—back when he awkwardly handed Gaga her Best New Artist trophy at the MTV Music Awards (remember, he’s a 38-year-old dad, most of them still quote pop culture gossip from 2009).
So far Gaga has not responded to the track, on which Eminem also announces that “Shady” is on Katy Perry‘s “tail, he’s tailgating.” Since “A Kiss” is not the EP’s single, it seems unlikely we’ll get a video a la “We Made You” where Eminem can explore his complicated/asinine feelings about these female celebs further, but if the hype around this dis spreads—and if Interscope execs decide the drama is good for business—who knows? Maybe “Weird” Al won’t be the only guy planning a Gaga impersonation on TV.

Michael Lohan may be boxing talk radio host Jeremy Loper in Ft. Lauderdale this weekend, but it was Frank Sorrentino—the estranged father of The Situation—that he wrestled with at last night’s press conference in advance of the match. The dueling deadbeat dads, have been exchanging threats all week. “Hey Mike, let me send you a f—ing message so you get this f—ing loud and clear, okay? You should be careful what you ask for because you may get it,” said the man who calls himself “The Confrontation” after Lohan allegedly challenged him to box, with Lohan responding “If I had to climb into the ring with him on crutches, after the way he spoke to me, I’d probably kick his ass anyways.”
Sorrentino, who’s refereeing the Lohan/Loper match, appeared to be in a much better mood last night, as did the subject of his many f-bombs. Maybe the two realized they have too much in common to complain about: Frank’s being sued by his famous son, Michael’s famous daughter Lindsay frequently wants nothing to do with him, neither would be remotely famous if not for their kids. Hey, anybody want to pay these guys to live in a house together? The Surreal Dads.

Oh, how we love an extremely random famous person beef (remember the great Jeremy Piven/ Chris Kattan kerfuffle of 2009? Those were the days), and a Zach Galifiankis January Jones feud would really hit the spot right about now. While promoting his upcoming film The Hangover Part II to TheShortList.com, Zach had one specific memory about Mad Men star he just hasn’t been able to shake, despite reports that Jones found him to be “the most naturally funny man she’s ever met.” Laughed Galifianakis, “ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party Ã¢â‚¬â€ IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d never met her Ã¢â‚¬â€ and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to forget about you in a few years, so f–king be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s funny?” Ba-zing! Man, we can’t want to see who’s next in the bizarre celebrity cage match: Bradley Cooper and Gary Busey? Ed Helms and Nicki Minaj? That little Hangover Part II monkey and, let’s go with, Chris Kattan?

We never understand it when celebrity couples start drama in public. Don’t they remember all that bizarre, rich-person stuff the other person knows about them? We’ve all seen Eyes Wide Shut, right? Unfortunately, Kanye West’s Amber Rose Coachella dis didn’t follow the laws of relationship decorum, so the rapper’s ex is out to talk a little trash. Just as a little background: at the music festival last month, Kanye allegedly changed the lyrics to his song “Stronger” from “I’ll do anything for a blonde dyke” to “I did anything for that blonde dyke.” Amber Rose just so happens to be his bisexual blond ex, ergo, yikes.
We wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Kanye momentarily forgot Amber was actually at Coachella, and was under the impression that only he could hear the beautiful music in his mind. “It’s just unfortunate that he said that in the song ’cause that’s not the lyrics,” Amber Rose’s King Magazine interview says about the incident now. “I can say whatever I want about him. I can write a book or do whatever but I choose to take the high road. It’s just unfortunate he has to constantly say s–t.” Despite the on-going drama, Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are still going strong. Said soon-to-be reality star, “When I was with my ex [West], I didn’t have a voice. I was there and I was new to the fame. I didn’t understand everything. Now I get everything. With me and Wiz, we show our love to the world.” We undersand it if Amber is trying to come out ahead as the classier party, but if not: please, please, please write the book on Kanye.

Tracy Morgan might joke about taking everyone and everything behind the middle school and getting them pregnant, but unlike some performers, his character’s bizarro character traits usually stay fictional. In an interview with PopEater about his new film Rio, Tracy Morgan insults Charlie Sheen‘s parenting skills, taking the touring warlock to task for humiliating his kids. “I’m just a comedian. I’m not Charlie Sheen. Charlie Sheen ain’t funny to me. I think that’s a train wreck and I feel bad for his two little kids because they’re the bodies being pulled out of the train wreck,” Morgan ranted. Aw, it’s like Tracy thinks he’s usually puffing on a pipe in a tweed jacket, as opposed to getting topless and talking about “climbing” Michelle Obama.
In Morgan’s defense, given Sheen’s custody battle with Brooke Mueller, Charlie’s kids might have to face the kind of damage that seeing their father take his shirt off in public just cannot compare to. “What’s going to happen to them? But everybody thinks it’s a joke. While this asshole is going on stage making a fool of himself his kids are going to suffer and don’t even know it because this is a cycle of abuse,” Morgan explains. Then again, his own family had to find out about Tracy Morgan’s kidney transplant from the internet. Pick out an adorable preteen and we’ll see them both in Two And A Half Man-Children this fall on FX.

Whether it’s questioning President Obama’s birth certificate or lambasting Rosie O’Donnell in the press, when Donald Trump fights, he goes for the throat. Yesterday Donald Trump blasted Jerry Seinfeld for canceling his stand-up performance at an Eric Trump Foundation benefit this coming September, attacking the comedian’s most sensitive spot: his awful show The Marriage Ref. There goes any hope of a clean campaign! “I just learned you canceled a show for my son’s charity because of the fact that I am being very aggressive with respect to President Obama, who is doing an absolutely terrible job as our leader,” Trump raged in his letter to Seinfeld. “What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show The Marriage Ref, even though I thought it was absolutely terrible . . . Despite its poor ratings, I didn’t cancel on you like you canceled on my son and St. Jude. I only wish I did.” Wow, maybe Trump should be a politician: he’s willing to go personal, and he’ll do things he thinks are awful just to be on TV. He’s half-way to the White House already!
If you can imagine, publicly insulting him hasn’t exactly made Jerry Seinfeld climb aboard the Trump campaign bus. “Jerry . . . feels this kind of demagoguery has no place in public discourse,” Say Seinfeld’s rep. “He has respectfully withdrawn from the event, and is making a contribution both to the Eric Trump Foundation and to [St. Jude].” Instead, Brett Michaels will do Trump’s benefit in the comedian’s place. Wow, Jerry is going to feel pretty sheepish when Trump gets elected next year and it turns out he pissed off our future leader. Sheepish, and horrified.

Congratulations, Bret Easton Ellis, your oh-so-edgy Twitter finally struck a nerve. The American Psycho author has long been using the messaging platform to share his predictably transgressive opinions (“The worst thing that can happen to a man is falling in love with a whore…,” “Not to bum everyone out, but can we get a reality check here? It gets worse,” “Most underrated movie of the year: Sex and the City 2“), but his recent tweets about Glee are a step above (or rather, below) the norm. “I like the idea of Glee but why is it that every time I watch an episode I feel like I’ve stepped into a puddle of HIV?” he said Tuesday, following up last night with “No, I wasn’t drunk last night. I was watching Chris Colfer singing, um, “Le Jazz Hot” and felt like I had suddenly come down with the HIVs.” Somehow he’s restrained himself from going full Gabbo and announcing all the children on Glee have HIV, but there’s still time.
Aside from anonymous insider (“disgusting”) E! had no luck getting anyone on the show to comment, and neither show creator Ryan Murphy or our Ultimate FAB Icon Chris Colfer has tweeted a response. But with Glee fans and gossip wranglers like ourselves and Perez Hilton calling attention to Ellis’ homophobic comments (the author, “for artistic reasons,” has refused to settle on a sexual identity), Bret’s getting the attention he so obviously wants either way.

Exes at a wedding is usually an awkward issue, even at the Playboy Mansion. Kendra Wilkinson told E! she’s annoyed former boyfriend/employer Hugh Hefner hasn’t sent her a save-the-date or anything for his impending nuptials to Crystal Harris. “I haven’t gotten my save the date yet,” she said. “I’m not joking, I’m really pissed off about it. If I don’t get a save the date, I have another wedding to attend that same day. I got a save the date from one of my closest friends for that date. I’m planning on going to Hef’s but I haven’t gotten the save the date for that same date. I’m getting kind of antsy because I need to pick which wedding to go to.” Gee, the marriage of a close friend or the marriage of a decrepit fox who used to keep you as a concubine? Choices, choices!
Not that she blames Hef for leaving her on the hook. “No! It’s Crystal that does the wedding planning. She’s the girl! If she doesn’t give me a save the date soon I’m going to have to put in my save the date with the other wedding.” Surely Crystal just forgot to invite all the veterans of Hef’s harem to the sacred ceremony—Kendra tweeted a thanks to Hef soon after the story went up (“u r hilarious hahahaa”), so we’re guessing this is water under the bridge…except perhaps for the “close friend” who Kendra called out as a back-up.

Kirstie Alley shrugged off George Lopez‘ so-classy “Kirstie Alley Is A Pig” bit with a crack about Lopez being a “big, bad, drunk wolf” on her Twitter, but that didn’t mean she was ready to play nice. Lopez apologized soon after (“I misjudged the joke. No malice was intended and I apologize to Kirstie”), but the actress wasn’t having it, tweeting “I don’t need or want ur apology…I want your kidney dude..on behalf of ur X and all the women uv insulted…give it back.” Yow! Misjudge that!
Alley continued to riff on Lopez allegedly cheating on his kidney-donating wife with a prostitute, noting “I don’t consider ‘I misjudged the joke” an apology. sorta like a husband saying ‘I misjudged putting my d— in a whore’ …sorry hon..hehe.” While we’d like to high-five Kirstie for showing how to really be mean and funny at the same time, the Dancing With The Stars contestant finally let him off the hook. “Take life as lightly as u can and then move on …even u George ….u are forgiven…..:)….” Will George fire back or keep his wolf tail between his legs?
