Consider this NSFW, please! It’s just another day and another outlandish outfit for Lady Gaga, but Mexico City got more of an eyeful than they bargained for! At a photo call held to promote Born This Way, Gaga rolled in wearing a super-sheer, skin-tight, electric blue dress with only two pieces of tape preserving her … modesty. All the attention may have gone to her torso — which you can view in all its glory in out gallery below — but if anyone managed to drag their eyes away, they’d see that she had the most insane pair of platform shoes on. The craziest she’s ever worn (which is saying a lot)! We’re stumped as to how she could possibly walk in those? And with regards to that outfit, this was just two of her “gagas.” Way better than what Gaga pulled out in Harpers Bazaar, right?
A lot can change in 15 years, but one thing sure hasn’t changed much…Enrique Iglesias‘ face! Ok, he did get his mole removed, but otherwise this dude is practically ageless. In honor of the singer’s recent chart comeback and 36th brithday, we’ve put together a little challenge for you. Each of the 16 photos below were taken in a different year: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and so on to 1996…only we’ve jumbled the chronology. Do you think you can tell which photo comes from what year? Check out the gallery below and give it a shot—the answer key is after the jump.
Country singer Blake Shelton may be bigger than ever thanks to his role on NBC’s hit show The Voice, but his big mouth on Twitter is getting him into trouble. Last night he tweeted, “Re-writing my fav Shania Twain song.. Any man that tries Touching my behind He’s gonna be a beaten, bleedin’, heaving kind of guy…” which was interpreted as homophobic by many followers, leading GLAAD to demand an apology. Though he says he meant for the lyric to still be heard from Shania’s POV—a woman threatening a man, not Blake threatening a man—Shelton doesn’t seem willing to leave the matter at that. Here’s a few lines he’s dropped since:
Ba! Ha! Reading all my anti-gay hate tweets…. Ha! Ha! If people only knew even a little about me, my family and friends. Dumb asses…
Hey y’all allow me to seriously apologize for the misunderstanding with the whole re-write on the Shania song last night…
It honestly wasn’t even meant that way… I now know that their are people out there waiting to jump at everything I say on here or anywhere.
But when it comes to gay/lesbian rights or just feelings… I love everybody. So go look for a real villain and leave me out of it!!!
While his frustration is understandable if he’s being honest about his intent, he could have just admitted how easy it would be misinterpret the tweet, instead of lashing out at “dumbasses” and “people waiting to jump at everything.” But considering he admitted “I’m so drunk right now I just open hand slapped a ziplock bag of urine. Damn it!!! I was saving that..” right before his Weird Al moment, we shouldn’t be surprised Blake isn’t playing this smoothly.
“Baby, baby, baby, no” or “baby, baby, baby, go”? TMZ reports that Justin Bieber’s crew refuses to travel to Japan for scheduled shows in Osaka and Tokyo this month, claiming they’re concerned about radiation, earthquakes and all the other stuff that would freak out your grandparents if you said you were going there. Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, having received an “all clear” from the Japanese government, is unimpressed by the concerns, and allegedly told those concerned to “man the f— up and do what’s right for these kids.” Bieber has yet to comment, but between performing in Australia, having “moments” (“just grateful 2 b here living this life”) and playing basketball with Maroon 5 (who are also headed to Japan), he’s been kind of busy.
In happier news, a 17-year-old Australian was arrested for throwing eggs at Bieber at a concert in Sydney last weekend. The player-hater is accused of climbing to the arena’s roof to commit his dastardly deed—narrowly missing Earth’s sweetheart—and was charged with breaking and entering, trespass and malicious damage. The player-hater is currently out on bail.
The family Usher is in NYC while daddy does some tour dates in the area this week, and while we’re always happy to see the tots (remember when they hit Uncle Bieber’s Never Say Never premiere?), 2-year-old Naviyd and 3-year-old Usher V didn’t look too happy leaving their hotel yesterday. Was it a fight? The cameras? The smell of NYC? The fact that dad had to play Rhode Island last night? We’re guessing it was Rhode Island.

Jordin, we hardly knew ye! Jordin Sparks’ low-cut dress blew our minds at Muhammad Ali‘s Fight Night event last March, but she took it a step further this weekend by tweeting a self-shot bikini pic to her followers. “I don’t know why but my bathing suit reminds me of fruity pebbles,” she cracked. Sparks denied “sucking it in,” but did admit she purchased the top and bottom from different stores. “Werk what we got!” she told a complimentary fan—and Jordin’s definitely werkin’ it.
Justin Bieber came about a foot away from an egg to the skull at a concert in Sydney, Australia on Friday. Justin, ignoring doctors’ concerns about back trouble, was perform the second of two shows at the Acer Arena when six eggs flew from the sky and circled the 17-year-old superstar. The Biebs seemed remarkably unfazed by the barrage, and continued the show without ever acknowledging the attack. Bieber’s Australian tour continues to Melbourne tonight—hopefully security will to a better job checking for groceries.
It’s been five years since they’ve done a TV broadcast of the Billboard Music Awards, which might be why they couldn’t get a bigger name than the admittedly awesome Ken Jeong (Community, The Hangover) to host the resurrected ceremony next month on ABC. But as far as musical acts go, the show isn’t hurting for celebs. Nicki Minaj and Cee-Lo have just been added to a line-up that already included Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban.
Rihanna is up against Taylor Swift, Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber for Top Artist at the ceremony, though there’s no word yet if the four not named Rihanna will actually be attending. But with Nicki on hand, we might not even miss Gaga when the show airs May 22nd.
Apparently, Richie Sambora is headed to rehab, as RadarOnline reports. This is at least his second recent stint, as the rocker had check into Cirque Lodge in Utah previously in 2007 to deal with his drinking and addiction to painkillers. Unfortunately, he’s fallen off the wagon once again, but the good news is that he’s doing something about it!
Richie’s just come out of a very busy and draining tour with Bon Jovi and apparently, his alcoholism kicked in during his time spent on the road. A source reveals, “Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together” while another “friend” says, “Richie has had a busy year. I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself.” While the band is supposedly being very supportive of his decision, we still don’t know how they’re going to deal with Sambora’s absence for the rest of the tour. They still have dates in the U.S and Europe left until the June! We’re rooting for you, Richie!
Katy Perry had an errand to run in Melbourne today before kicking off her Australian tour tomorrow night—namely suing an Aussie magazine for claiming she cheated on husband Russell Brand. Perry is arguing that NW “gravely injured in her reputation and feelings…[causing] distress, embarrassment and humiliation” after the mag claimed she had an intimate relationship with “California Gurls” producer Benny Blanco. Katy claims that the magazine has refused to apologize despite obvious inaccuracies and could get up to six figures if she wins.
It’s possible this drama is the reason the star tried to hide her face behind a pink towel after leaving the Melbourne airport earlier today in a gray Chanel tracksuit, though it might have just been the jetlag Katy tweeted about (“After 1 latte, 3 espresso’s and a dose of vitamins I am still crashing like a redwood”). See the gallery more photos of the atypically shy singer.
