Lady Gaga: Fat & Skinny

Lady Gaga Is Suddently Fat?! WTF?
One of the big news items over the past 24 hours was Lady Gaga’s weight gain, but we didn’t seem to notice the weight gain when we posted her photos last week when she appeared at London Fashion Week. Lady Gaga should really consider dumping the leotards for something a little more tasteful b/c it must be painful to watch the live performance. She claims the extra 25lbs she put on during her hiatus is b/c she’s been eating a lot of Italian food at her dad’s NYC restaurant (Joanne – W 68th / Columbus). Gaga told radio host Elvis Duran, “I’m dieting right now, because I gained, like, 25 pounds. And you know I really don’t feel bad about it, not even for a second. I have to be on such a strict diet constantly. It’s hard because it’s a quite vigorous show, so I tend to bulk up, get muscular, and I really don’t like that. So I’m trying to find a new balance.” I gotta admit, I didn’t find Gaga all that attractive before the weight gain, so I’m somewhat indifferent now that she’s much thicker.

John Travolta’s lament: It is ‘the worst time to be famous’
Boohoo! Waa Waa Waa! Maybe somebody should tell John Travolta that the millions he has stored in the bank is a direct result of fame.Fame & fortune doesn’t come with some sort of a la carte menu where you can choose what you like & don’t like and then go about living happily ever after. It’s a total package & if you can’t handle the papz, either stop doing stupid shit or just move out of your Beverly Hills digs to a quieter place. Reducing the usual daily visits to random male “masseurs” around L.A. would also help. John Travolta made the comments in light of all the bullshit surrounding Kate Middleton’s topless photos. Hey, even though this might sound a bit insensitive, if you don’t want topless photos getting printed all around Europe, then stop walking around topless while on vacation! What a great idea, right? When Kate signed on to becoming a Princess she signed away a little of her privacy, so anybody saying otherwise doesn’t full understand the full price of fame.

The Emmys Are This Weekend!
I understand the whole award show is just a way for Hollywood to pimp the latest shows that are set to premiere over the next few weeks, but the awards do mean something (if you’re the one receiving it). Since we’re not up for an award this year, we’re going to have to play “don’t give a shit card” and just pray that the ladies come dressed to impress on the red carpet this Sunday. I feel like the usual women will probably kill it (Sofia Vergara, Eva Longoria, “Glee” cast, Brian Williams’ hot daughter from “Girls,” Sarah Hyland, etc). For a full list of nominees, check this PDF.

Emmys coverage: We’ll do our best to get the best photos up as fast as possible on the site, so check here on Sunday evening! As you know, we run a very nimble operation over here, so thanks to all of you bastards for your continued support.
