Lady Gaga says the world is wrong about Israel

lady gaga

This is a celebrity gossip blog, not a political blog, so I’ll leave my personal opinions somewhat out of this one. You see, Lady Gaga recently visited Israel, which makes her an expert in the world’s political climate and totally qualified to tell us all how wrong we are about the country because it’s nice and she met some nice people there. Uh… okay?

From The Independent:

“Oh it was fantastic!” she coos of her Israeli show. “Tel Aviv was magnificent. The world view of Israel is just not reality. It’s in a beautiful place, the people are in good spirits,” she says, perhaps not a view that would prevail in Gaza. “I had a very emotional show with those fans. It was wonderful.

Here’s the thing: the world view about Israel is based on what the country does on an international scale, not about the individuals you’ve met there who like your music, girl. A lot of people think a lot of shitty things about Americans based on what our country does in the world, but that has little reflection on everyday citizens who want nothing to do with what the government puts into play. Most people with any intelligence know that a lot of Americans are sick and tired of the terrorist witch hunting and the fact that America can’t seem to mind its own business (in fact, it minds anything but). However, that doesn’t mean what people think of America as a COUNTRY is wrong – America is synonymous with war and greed and shit at this point to other countries in the world, so obviously that’s what they’re basing their opinions on. Same goes for Israel. I’m sure there are PLENTY of lovely Israeli people; in fact, I imagine most people in the country are lovely. Politicians and citizens rarely have the same goals.

My one word of advice to Lady Gaga would be to be an entertainer, not a political commentator. To say that those who view Israel in a negative light – especially those who live in the region – are not living in “reality” is ridiculous. It’s THEIR reality, which is far more than the codified version she no doubt experienced in her few days there.

Fergie releases new track ‘LA Love’

fergie

Fergie stepped out of the spotlight and into maternity jeans, preferring to take some time off to enjoy being married to Josh Duhamel and to have their baby, a now 1-year-old little boy named Axl. Now she’s back with some new music, and her comeback single ‘L.A. Love’ has leaked… and it’s pretty good:

I liked this from first listen. It’s a bit overdone, but somehow Fergie manages to pull it off. It’s a far cry from ‘Glamorous’, but I can see this doing REALLY well on the radio and should get her back on the charts somewhat easily. Definitely worth another listen, anyway.

Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini got hit by drunk driver

Hopefully that headline wasn’t too misleading – I just didn’t want to use the words “rear-ended” in the same headline as Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini‘s names. Indeed, the pair were out driving in NY (I think?) when the BFFs were hit by a drunk driver. Luckily, they were okay and no one was hurt.

From JLo’s Instagram:

Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!! Thank god everyone ok!!! #GRATEFUL #THANKYOUGOD #DontdrinkandDrive!!!! #cursedthatfoolout #theBronxcameout #dontmesswithmycocnuts #mamabear #leahstayedcalm #thatwasweird

Good that they’re okay. Also, what the hell is wrong with drunk people getting behind the wheel? Ugh, I’ll never understand it. This all seems a bit vague, as well – were the police not called? Did the driver not get arrested? “Cursing out” someone who could kill someone on the road isn’t much of a reaction…

Katy Perry might be dating Diplo again

Katy Perry was first linked to Diplo back in the spring of this year when they were spending a lot of time together, but that sorta petered off for a while and she was linked to a few other people. However, here we are again: Katy and Diplo have been partying in Las Vegas, fueling rumours that they’re “on again”.

From People:

The pop star continues to fuel speculation that she’s romancing DJ Diplo, partying as he performed in Sin City after selling out her own show at the MGM Grand Hotel’s Garden Arena on Friday night

Perry, 29, held court in the VIP section during Diplo’s set at Surrender Nightclub in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, a source tells PEOPLE.

The singer sipped water and bopped her head along to her rumored beau’s music as her pals drank Grey Goose and Moet Ice, ordering pizza to their table later in the night.

She left the club as his set drew to a close, and Diplo exited shortly after at about 3:15 a.m.

Well, that certainly sounds… conclusive. There is such a thing as people being friends, and I don’t particularly see these two as a couple, but hey – I guess you never really know. There’s one thing I do know, however – whatever in sandal hell Katy is wearing on her feet needs to go.

Chris Brown’s mom wants his shrink to save him from gangs

Chris Brown may have vowed to clean up his act after spending a few months in prison, but instead it seems he’s gone the opposite way and is instead trying to be a gang banger… which will never lead to anything good. His mom and Rihanna knock-off girlfriend are apparently pretty concerned about his recent behaviour (REALLY? Only now?) and she’s hoping Chris’s psychiatrist can help to save him before it’s too late.

From TMZ:

Multiple sources tell us … Chris’ mom and Karrueche are so worried … they approached the therapist because they’re deeply concerned Chris is not only compromising his safety by promoting gangs, he’s also ruining his career.

TMZ broke the story … the LAPD has already gone to L.A. clubs, trying to convince owners to ban Chris and his entourage because wherever they go … violence follows.

Chris’ family thinks he does not understand the implications of associating himself with the Bloods.  He thinks it’s “cool,” but the family is worried he’s in real danger and he doesn’t have a clue.

We’re told they literally think Chris’ life is on the line.

Look, I’d love to believe that there’s hope for everyone and he can still turn things around, but some people don’t want to be helped and this asshole is one of them. Chris Brown is an absolute waste of space who squandered the talent he actually had in favour of being a violent, homophobic dickhead who contributes nothing to the world. And yes, those are strong feelings, but come on! How awful do you have to be and how many times can it be brought to your attention before you decide, “Hey, my mother raised me better than this. I don’t want to be a shithead – I want to change my life!”??? Clearly the message hasn’t gotten through thus far and unfortunately, I don’t think it ever will.

That’s not to say, of course, that the people who still love and care about him aren’t going to want to keep trying – obviously they will, but I feel like it’s unfortunately a futile effort with Chris. It’s a shame, but some people are just too attached to being assholes.

John Mellencamp wants to get back together with Meg Ryan

Last month, we were sadly forced to reveal that John Mellencamp and Meg Ryan had ended their three year relationship as living in different cities was taking its toll and they just weren’t getting to see enough of each other. However, John’s really not ready to give it up and would get back with Meg in a heartbeat because apparently she’s a pretty swell lady.

From People:

“I’m very happy with the time I’ve spent with Meg Ryan,” he told The Associated Press. “She’s a beautiful girl and I know that I will never, ever, ever be with a funnier girl than her. Not gonna happen. I’m grateful for the three and a half years we’ve been together.”

So is it over?

“Nothing’s over,” he said. “Nothing’s over. I never say die for anything. Do you ever quit on anything?”

Okay, so that’s kinda sweet and adorable. I don’t know why I feel that way, but I do. Now I want them to get back together. Pick up the phone, Meg!! Make the call!!

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are officially husband and wife!

george clooney amal alamuddin

That’s it, it’s official! George Clooney is officially off the market and is now Mr. Amal Alamuddin! The lavish ceremony was held yesterday at the seven-star Aman Canal Grande Hotel in Italy and it seems like it was truly an event to remember. Here’s the scoop from US Weekly:

Saturday morning, guests were left to themselves before witnessing the pair exchange vows at the seven-star Aman Canal Grande hotel. They had the option to sip drinks downstairs, but were expected to make their way to the boats on time for the ceremony.

After the pre-wedding celebrations, Clooney and his British lawyer love finally said “I do,” and received a big round of cheers around 8:45 p.m. Guests then feasted on lobster, lemon risotto, and fried polenta with mushrooms, and danced to hits from bands like Blondie, Jackson 5, Amy Winehouse, and Daft Punk.

Everyone was given a code for their phones for security purposes, and were asked to leave their personal devices back in their hotel rooms. Cameras were supplied at the reception, which lasted well into the early morning. (Good thing Sunday brunch begins at 2 p.m. back at Cipriani!)

Before heading home Sunday, guests will congratulate the newlyweds once more at a late dinner at the Granaries of the Republic. They won’t be packing up just their fancy attire from the night before, however. Clooney and Alamuddin gifted everyone with a framed picture of themselves.

“We’re both so glad you’re here. You’ve come a long way so we’ll make it worth the trip,” a letter from the couple read. “Thanks for being here. It means the world to us.”

So, basically either US Weekly is making shit up, or George and Amal had a wedding guest who can’t keep their friggin’ mouths shut. Like, what? Not even a day after the wedding and they already know what was in a private letter written to the guests by the couple? SMH.

In any case, it sounds like a good time was had by all and a lot of hearts were broken now that the Silver Fox is off the market. Happy days!
