If you want to give your guys some good exercise by having them roll all the way to the back of your head, where they’re likely to get stuck, then you’re in luck and this story’s for you. Apparently Lady Gaga and Madonna are in a feud again, of sorts, as they fight over who gets to perform at a concert honouring the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall to be held this November. They could both play, of course, but apparently they refuse to support one another, so it’s an all-out bullshit war.
From The Daily Star:
A German mole told us: “Madonna and Gaga are equally desperate for the honour of performing. They both like to think of themselves as very political, and will also have new albums to promote by then. It could reignite their long-running feud as the date draws nearer because neither are used to being told no.
“However it’s highly likely organisers would choose the Queen of Pop over Gaga, if push came to shove.”
What the hell is wrong with these two? This may or may not be true – I’m guessing it’s true but to a less dramatic extent. I just think they both need to get a grip. Madonna is too old for this bullshit and needs to sit confident in her status as an absolute legend. Gaga needs to realize she’s a Madonna carbon copy, only not nearly as good, and chillax and show some respect.

There’s one simple fact of life that none of us – not even celebrities – can escape: jury duty. I mean, you can try and get out of it, but if you’re registered to vote in your state of residence, chances are you will get called for it at least once. That happened to Madonna, but it seems like maybe she’s the exception to the rule. She’s just too famous to serve.
The singer showed up Monday at a NYC courthouse but was excused 2 hours later. And get this … she never had to sit with the commoners in the jury assembly room. She was allowed to hang out in the clerk’s office.
A court official says Madonna was released because they had more than enough jurors to fill the needs of the courts.
So the question … if there were enough jurors why release her instead of others? The court official says her presence would create a distraction in the jury selection process.
Yeah, I mean, obviously she was released because she was famous. Her presence in the jury would draw too much attention to the case at hand, and that’s not really a good thing. Anyone who shows up to court with her own security detail is not really going to cut it. It kinda sucks, though – just another thing celebs get away with. I know some people sorta like jury duty, though. It’s a day (or a week or more) off work where you can sit and surf the internet (which I don’t think you’re supposed to do, but people do it anyway). I got out of it when I was called – knock on wood – but I’m sure I’ll be doing my civic duty again soon.

I don’t know how many of you frequent Oh No They Didn’t, but it’s a great place for celeb news and absolute fucking mayhem when it comes to the big stars and their hardcore stans. It often devolves into gif wars and total nonsense, but sometimes some absolute gold comes out of it.
Take, for instance, the fact that ONTD posted a story on the fact that Lady Gaga posted a photo online claiming it was from one of her concerts, when actually it was from a big music festival. They were calling her out for doing it and they posted the story – as most sites do to promote traffic – on their Twitter account. Gaga, however, was too pressed to just keep quiet and for some reason brought Madonna‘s name into it, implying that it was Madonna stans who had posted the story to begin with to bring Gaga down.

I mean… why? I find it interesting that Madonna’s name was even mentioned. Clearly she’s that obsessed with the fact that she’s a cheap rip-off of Madonna who will never come close to her career longevity and legendary status, but like… okay. She just looks bitter and rather sad. Sorry your career is ending so quickly into it, Stefani, but please sit down.

Gwyneth Paltrow is a hot ass mess, and something she just cannot do – besides get the stick out of her ass – is “let loose”. I literally cannot imagine the woman not in pressed linen pants or, say, eating a large pepperoni pizza in pyjamas that are stained sort of a weird purple colour because she accidentally put them in the wash with the darker stuff. She’s just not capable of it, and that’s why her new Max Factor campaign is a massive fail.
For the ads, which are part of Max Factor’s 100 years of Glamour anniversary/Modern Icon campaign, Goopy dresses up like four beauty icons: Madonna, Farrah Fawcett, Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot. She carries off exactly none of them.
See what I mean? I know that Max Factor as a brand wants to convey a certain level of glamour and seriousness – especially since they aren’t exactly marketing to the teen crowd – but like… why? Why Gwyneth Paltrow as the face of your brand at all, really? I would lay $100 bet on the fact that she’s never touched an item of their makeup (other than, say, for photoshoots) and would turn her nose up at drugstore beauty purchases. After all, they’re not organic and don’t contain ingredients that were milked from the teats of forest squirrels or whatever she’s into. It’s just not believable.
What do you think?

The Met Gala was on Monday night, and while all the celebrities donned their fanciest frocks and enjoyed a night out on the town, Madonna was busy… posting naked selfies to Instagram in yet another attempt to remain relevant. Girl, no. Just really, really no.
Madonna posted the photo above along with the following caption:
What i wanted to wear to Met Ball but Anna said Not this year! So I’m gonna work on music instead? #artforfreedom
Obviously she was never even going to the Met Gala in the first place, but she thought that would be a funny “joke” and again, another way for her to try to appeal to the masses. No shade on Madonna’s body – she’s definitely in shape and has a great one, but we do not need to see that shit – especially not from a 55-year-old mother of four. Do you and be sexual and embrace your body and all of that, but maybe keep it off social media next time.

Unfortunately, the image of Madonna dressed as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones for Purim is burned into our minds forevermore. However, even though it was an absolute mess, everyone had to admit she did a pretty impressive job in looking the part.
Well, turns out, there’s a reason for that: it was Emilia Clarke‘s actual costume from the show!
“It’s my real costume. I thought I was dreaming. I got an email from amazing HBO publicist Mara, saying, ‘Madonna would like to borrow the costume, is that okay?’ I thought, ‘God, this must be a dream. This can’t be real.’”
Oh girl, it is real, unfortunately. Here’s Emilia’s interview on Late Night Starring Jimmy Fallon if you want to hear more…
