Good news, little (European) monsters. Lady Gaga sent out some very apologetic tweets day before yesterday because her Parisian shows were canned due to the French government banning her tour bus caravan from entering the country. She explained the situation over Twitter, “All 28 of my trucks for the Monsterball were detained by the French government going on over 26 hrs, 2 of my employees were arrested trying to get into Paris so we could perform. I am furious and devastated, its unfair to my fans and to me.” Adding to what was turning out to be a vairy mauvais soujourn was the seriously bad weather seen in the photo Gaga tweeted along with the message, “I love Paris + I love my French fans. I’m sorry little monsters. A photo of storm, I’m stuck on bus.”
Problem solved now. All is well with the Monsterball, as Gaga exulted over Twitter, writing, “Today’s canceled Paris show is rescheduled for Tuesday, 2moro’s show will happen as planned. I promise to give u the nights of ure life. X” Perhaps that’s why she celebrated by leaving her hotel, the Park Hyatt, for Chez Andre looking like a depraved Victorian countess who just had a rendezvous with a debauched Duke who ripped her bodice open in a moment of passion. She seems to inspire that behavior, considering a female fan groped her breast in the resulting frenzy. Check out the gallery of Gaga owning Paris, below. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Over the weekend, LeAnn Rimes tweeted, “Ok, time to get ready to go sing w/ The Gay Men’s Chorus Of LA! Gonna be fun!!!! Pics to come later of me as Mrs. Clause.” She then tweeted this photo of the whole sexy squad, writing, “Santa’s Elves and Me!!”

Taylor Momsen’s touring Europe with her band The Pretty Reckless in her trademark raccoon eye make-up and the tattered lingerie she calls clothing.Ã‚Â All that country-hopping’s got the poor thing mixed up because while performing in Glasgow, she happily announced to the crowd, “Glasgow you are looking good tonight. We are The Pretty Reckless and we have heard Glasgow is the craziest crowd in all of England.”
Hah, is all we have to say. But the Scots were having none of it. “The noise from the crowd was deafening,” said an eyewitness. “People began to cheer as they presumed she was going to say Scotland, but when the penny dropped all you could hear was boos.” What’s weird is that Taylor didn’t realize she had goofed up till the next day. Did she not hear the boos? Did she think that was sort of archaic Scottish custom to show appreciation? She had to apologize for her D’oh moment on Twitter, of course, tweeting, “Glasgow, I love you, I now HAVE to tour SCOTLAND (haha, sorry about the slip up!)”.
The good news is, now that Taylor’s getting all that time off from Gossip Girl, she’ll be able to sit with an Atlas. Because it’s clearly necessary.
The one thing we know about Pink, pregnant or otherwise, is that she doesn’t tolerate any bulls—. So when a “friend” apparently told In Touch, “Pink is opting for a water birth when she delivers her firstborn next spring. She did her research.”, the singer decided to clear the rumor in vintage Pink style. On Twitter, of course!
Leaving no room for any miscommunication whatsoever, she tweeted, “My mom just told me that “in touch” has informed her that she is invited to my delivery, and that I want a water birth. She asked me if she needs to get a snorkel. This is all news to me. Amazing. Good reporting.” Excuse us while we crack up! Good thing Pink wasn’t at Bed, Bath and Beyond at the time, because s— would really go down then. Who thinks this baby is going to be totally badass with a mom like her? We do!

One large order of attention for Ms. Handler, coming right up! Behold the photo that is bound to get the Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent dating rumor mill up and running again. “I don’t know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper,” Handler cracks under the photo. Girlfriend, please. You will or you won’t, you do or you don’t; just decide already! Seriously, this is getting to be like Ross and Rachel, except sad and only on Twitter.
Though if we were Chelsea, we would probably be hiding in bed too, cowering from the nasty backlash that came after Handler insulted Angelina Jolie, implying the actress would See You Next Tuesday, if you get our drift. If Chelsea and Fiddy really are hitting the sheets, let’s just hope that photo of 50 flirting with Chelsea’s producer Heather McDonald was a joke. Unless that picture was real and this photo is a joke. Or maybe they’re both jokes. Oh Chelsea Handler, how can we even believe anything more?!?! [Photo: Chelsea Handler's Twitter]
Thank you, Stewart Rahr, for giving half a million dollars to Keep A Child Alive. The children thank you, we thank you, and all those celebs who shut down their twitter feeds thinking fans would give enough of a crap to raise $1 million thank you. Yes, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Ryan Seacrest and even little Lenny Kravitz are free to tweet again, now that the billionaire owner of Kinray—known as “Stewie Rah Rah” for his name-dropping ways—has tossed them a twig off one of the money trees planted outside his $45 million home, taking care of the pesky second half of their goal. Bet the granddaughters of a certain pharmaceutical entrepreneur can expect star-studded birthday parties this year!
“Thank you so much and never stop buying life!” said Kim Kardashian. “So stoked to be back on twitter!” said Ryan Seacrest! “I’m alive!” said Usher, forgetting he already tweeted four times during his account’s “death” (jerk). “Weeee diddddddd itttttt!!!!!” said Keep A Child Alive head Alicia Keys, who might think about going straight to the damn billionaires next time.

Chelsea Handler must’ve had a great time slagging off Angelina Jolie. Her epic rant at a New Jersey show included calling out Momma Pitt with some choice words. Her slams included, “…She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants. I don’t f—ing believe you! She gives interviews, ‘I don’t have a lot of female friends.’ Because you’re a f—ing c—.”
Props to her for braving Jolie’s inevitable death stare. But while Handler was sounding off on stage, there was another story developing backstage. Chelsea’s supposed man-friend 50 Cent was around, watching her in action, and seemed to be getting action from her friend and Chelsea Lately writer and producer, Heather McDonald. By the looks of this TwitPic, they looked mighty friendly. McDonald tweeted, “Great show in Newark tonight but Chelsea should be worried because of this” along with the photo. Forget Angelina, maybe Ms. Comedienne needs to clean up her house first. Be afraid McDonald… because you know you’re going to become fodder for Chelsea’s next show.

Chris Daughtry is completely smitten with his newborn twins and we don’t blame him. How adorable are these babies. Daughtry posted a picture on Twitter of little Adalynn Rose and Noah James and wrote, “I’m SO in love!”
Daughtry, married for a decade, has a stepdaughter from his wife Deanna’s previous marriage and a son named Griffin. That’s four kids total, adding the twins who were born just 20 days ago. Chris sent out an official statement saying, “Our family is overwhelmed with joy by these two precious gifts from God. The babies are both healthy and resting. Thanks to everyone for their love and prayers.” Congratulations!

“It’s truly a battle of Raymond Vs. AIDS,” said Usher about “killing” his Twitter late last month…and it looks like AIDS won! Though theÃ‚Â Twitter “death” fund drive for Keep A Child Alive has made less than half of its million dollar goal, Usher has broken ranks with Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest and all the other stars staying mute for the charity. The singer tweeted yesterday, “Twit fam, I’m whack for being late, I need your help. Twit,Happy Birthday Rico Love!!! He is the man that wrote you ‘There goes my Baby.’” Hey, a good cause is a good cause, but Rico Love only gets one birthday a year!
Usher then went on to thank Atlanta for a great show, incoherently respond to a fan (“I’m listenin’ to you. I would’ve picked you…I didn’t hear you”) and give shout-outs to compatriots Chris Brown, Miguel, Trey Songz (“we shut it down!!!”) and “lil homie Prince JB” (whose mother calls him Justin Bieber). No explanation has been given for his memory lapse, and so far the rest of the celebs appear to be keeping quiet: will they give up too or is Usher that much more of a clueless jackass than his peers?
Kanye is going to be crying into his $30,000 mink bolero jacket tonight (you know, like every night), because he is about to be replaced by a new, even more fabulous Twitter diva: 50 Cent’s dog Oprah Winfree! We all know 50 Cent’s Twitter feed has all but replaced water and oxygen as the most important things in his life, but last night he upped his tweet game by posting a picture of Oprah wearing doggie Uggs and a sensible periwinkle turtleneck. Tweets the canine Oprah,”Check Out My Uggs Bitch!” She’s allowed to say “bitch”because she’s a lady dog!
Oprah the Dog has a serious Twitter following at 11,480. Oh sorry, we mean 11,481, because we are now officially obsessed with her. But don’t assume that just because Op loves to tweet, she’s totally obsessed with social media. Barked Oprah, “Oh yea I saw that someone made a FAKE FACEBOOK Page for me! I’m NOT ON FACEBOOK ONLY TWITTER.” It was probably just plain ol’ human Oprah trying to steal some puppy thunder. Go get your own massive internet following, Winfrey! [Photo: Oprah the Dog's Twitter]
