Quotables: Elton John Is Worried About Lady Gaga

“I look at Gaga and I think, ‘How does she do it?’ I talk to her mum and dad about it. They worry. She is frail, and she doesn’t eat when she should do, and she’s a girl, and it’s tougher for a girl. She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes.”

- Elton John discusses his concern for Lady Gaga.

Um, this is sweet and all, and I’m glad that Lady Gaga has people who care about her, but isn’t it a little weird and uncomfortable how Elton talks about her like she’s ten years old? She’s not a frail, tiny girl who needs the adults in her life to keep a close eye on her. She’s a 26-year-old woman who is wildly successful and has managed to take care of herself for a good few years. She’s not like Britney and Lindsay and all the other celebrities who need to be looked after: she’s never had any issues with breaking laws, and she admits to past issues with drugs, but she seems clean now. She’s never had a breakdown, at least not publicly. She’s just an eccentric lady who works too much. That’s it.

Am I overreacting about the weirdness of Elton’s comments, or does he need to hush his mouth with all this patronizing nonsense?

Now You Can Look Just Like Lindsay Lohan Looking Like Liz Taylor!

Please, try to contain your excitement! For the past few days, we’ve been showing you photos upon photos of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor. We’ve shown you photos of her costumes and photos of her popping out of her costumes. It’s been a whole lot of Lindsay as Liz action, and I know that many of you have thought to yourself, “wow, how do I get that look?!” Well, rest easy, friends, because I have that information and much, much more.

From People:

WhenLindsay Lohan first walked onto the set of Lifetime’s Liz & Dickdressed as screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, “there was an audible gasp,” the movie’s costume designer, Salvador Pérez, tells PEOPLE. “You’d swear it was Elizabeth.”

Dressed in Taylor’s favorite styles — jewel-toned cocktail dresses, fur coats and those famous gems (well, good fakes) — the actress looked remarkably like her screen idol. “She just walked into the clothes and became Elizabeth Taylor,” says Pérez.

Producer Larry Thompson had some of Taylor’s most famous bling, including the 33-carat Krupp diamond, recreated for the film. “Part of the magic is the wardrobe,” he says. “And Lindsay said she wants to bring magic to the movie.” Many of the vintage dresses fit her like a glove, too; Lohan’s waist measures a tiny 23 inches, while Taylor’s was a mere 22 inches.

Lohan will wear 66 different looks in the 80-minute biopic, which begins in 1961, ends with Richard Burton’s death in 1984 and focuses on their tumultuous relationship (an affair while she was still married, two weddings and two divorces). To prep, Lohan hired a voice coach and even dyed her auburn hair a deep brunette to better match Taylor’s dark tresses.

Lohan’s hair and makeup will span all of Taylor’s looks, from the long lashes and red lips of the 1950s (attained using M.A.C’s “Hot Tahiti” lipstick) and the Cleopatra-inspired eyeliner and nude mouth of the ’60s to her teased ’80s bouffant, always with her trademark eyeliner to accentuate her famous violet eyes. (Lohan is wearing opalescent lavender contacts for the role.)

“She brings in makeup for me,” makeup artist Eryn Krueger Mekash, who’s using mostly Chanel, Dior and M.A.C products, tells PEOPLE. Adds the movie’s hair stylist, Beatrice De Alba, “She looks so much like her. There was a moment when she saw her picture on the monitor and said ‘I’m her.’ It was thrilling.”

I think those “audible gasps” were less about how good Lindsay looked and more about “oh no, what have we done?” And the bit about “there was a moment when she saw her picture on the monitor and said ‘I’m her,’” that’s the most hilarious thing I’ve ever heard. May I remind you:

All the hair dye, lavender contacts, and Hot Tahiti lipstick in the world couldn’t transform the woman on the left into the woman on the right.

But I hadn’t heard that the movie spanned over twenty years, had you? That makes me about a zillion times more excited for this. That means that we’re going to see Lindsay play 52-year-old Elizabeth Taylor, complete with a bouffant. I am officially too excited for this movie.

Bad News: Octomom Isn’t Going to Strip After All

I’m so sorry, you guys. I know that many of you were already planning road trips down to Florida so you could see Nadya “Octomom” Suleman strut her stuff in July, but it’s not going to happen. And that’s not to say that it wasn’t going to happen in the first place, because it definitely was, but good ol’ Octomom cancelled. She cancelled because some people have to ruin it for everyone because they can’t keep their dumb mouths shut.

From TMZ:

Octomom will not be coming to the stage of a Florida strip joint — TMZ has learned she’s canceling her stripper gig because she thinks club staffers are talking smack about her.

As TMZ first reported, Octomom was set to drop her top (and only her top) at T’s Lounge in Palm Beach, FL next month — but Octo’s rep Gina Rodriguez tells TMZ they pulled out of the deal this morning.

Rodriguez says the straw that broke Octo’s back was a local news interview with a club bartender who said, Octo has “a lot of mouths to feed so it was only a matter of time” before she started stripping. The bartender added, “She must be a little crazy, normal people don’t have that many children.”

We’re told Octo, aka Nadya Suleman, was also pissed about a manager at the club insinuating she might go fully nude and do lap dances … for the right price.

I can understand Nadya getting upset over this and refusing to do it, but if she’s going quit a job every time someone calls her crazy, then she’s going to have a real hard time keeping a job. Still, it’s a hard situation to be in: she needs money, but if she feels disrespected by her employers, then is it worth it? Should she just suck it up and deal with it to take care of her children? I don’t know, but, as always, it sure is difficult to feel sorry for her when she’s the one who said to her doctor “yeah, I’m single and unemployed, but go ahead and fill me full of embryos anyway.”

Here’s a question that’s going to be weird for you to think about: what would you do if you were Octomom?
