Lady Gaga Is a Tangerine Dream in NYC
Showing off her wide range of fashion flavors, Lady Gaga stepped out in Manhattan on Thursday afternoon (December 18) in a variety of different frocks.
The “Just Dance” diva began in a tangerine orange dress before changing into a black and white printed getup as well as a wispy white gown.
On Wednesday night (December 17) Gaga joined Tony Bennett for a special performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
And during their interview, she talked about some advice she received from an exotic dancer years ago- “I was at the Clermont Lounge in Atlanta, the strip club. I was on a date. Very romantic; chivalry.”
“The night was called Where Strippers Go To Die. I think the woman who was stripping must've been 65, 70 years old, and she was fabulous... but she was doing something to Poker Face and she doing this whole thing and she had no panties on.”
“She leans over and goes, ‘You know that Lady Gaga? She can really sing. If she just took all those clothes off and she just sang, she'd be really great.’ I was like "mhmmm.’”
Mother Monster added, “So maybe in some ways I took her advice. She then asked me to sign a beer can she crushed between her breasts, showbiz!”
GQ January 2015 Asks TJ Miller For Party Tips
With Christmas and New Year’s Eve coming up, GQ magazine is offering up some helpful suggestions for throwing the perfect party.
“Silicon Valley” star T.J. Miller threw in a couple of hints to ensure that nobody gets bored or arrested while attending your soiree.
Miller shared, “Have conversation topics ready. For my twenty-first birthday party, I wrote a list. One was ‘Garbage— where does it all go?’ Another was, ‘What are three things you love about T.J. and one thing you don’t, but would never say out loud?’”
And TJ doesn’t mess with cranky neighbors- “I only throw parties at neighbor-less properties. I don’t know if you know—I was in Yogi Bear 3-D. So I’m incredibly wealthy. And I have properties all over the world where I’ve bought out the houses around me so there are no neighbors. If people say, ‘I can’t afford that. I wasn’t in Yogi Bear 3-D,’ then my response is, ‘I’m sorry. I’m sorry you weren’t in Yogi Bear 3-D, the greatest talking-bear comedy ever made.’”
Taylor Swift Makes Rounds in Manhattan
Rounding out the week with a few errands, Taylor Swift showed up outside her New York City apartment on Friday morning (December 19).
The “I Knew You Were Trouble” hitmaker was snazzy in a maroon beret with a plaid jacket, grey trousers and ankle boots as she carried her designer handbag past the paparazzi.
And while she certainly ruffled some feathers with her Spotify separation earlier this fall, Taylor told The Hollywood Reporter that many of her fellow artists were excited about the decision.
"I didn't think that it would be shocking to anyone. With as many ways as artists are personalizing their musical distribution, it didn't occur to me that this would be anything that anyone would talk about. But I could never have expected so many text messages, emails and phone calls from other artists, writers and producers saying thank you."
Brie Larson Tells GQ: I Think About Quitting Acting Every Day
The “Spectacular Now” starlet told writer Zach Baron that she absolutely loves her gal pal Shailene Woodley- “I really appreciate the fact that she saw me for me before even I did. Before I could even recognize it and feel strong in that. I can't think of anything in particular that she's actually said—it's more just every time we see each other we cry and we hold each other and we look in each other's eyes and we kind of go, like, ‘This world is sooo interesting.’”
Ms. Larson is also into spirit animals- “I was like, ‘Yeah but for sure I'm an eagle and a lion.’ And I pulled them and I got prairie dog. I got a beaver. I got a gopher. I got a chipmunk. I got all burrowing small prey. My center was a black panther. But it's like black panther mixed with like six other small rodents. So I'd say at this point like 80 percent of me is rodent. And I had a really hard time accepting that.”
Meanwhile, Brie thinks about jumping ship from the acting game on a daily basis. “Today. Every day. I think it is the fact that I want to quit that keeps me going. It's very complicated. But I think part of this whole exploration with every job that I do is, in terms of overcoming fear and by overcoming the fear I feel so much more complete, and I learn something new about myself. It can get really messy inside my head and it's usually just because everybody can get really self-centered at some point. And so what usually keeps me from quitting is that my reasons for quitting are just lame.”
Iggy Azalea & Azealia Banks Kick Their Feud Up a Notch
While chatting on Hot 97 FM, Ms. Banks decided to throw out a ton of insults about the “Fancy” rapper while accusing her of getting preferential treatment because she’s white.
Azealia explained, “That Iggy Azalea sh*t isn’t better than any f*cking black girl that’s rapping today. The Grammys are supposed to be accolades of artistic excellence. Iggy Azalea is not excellent.”
“When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘Oh yeah, you’re great, you’re amazing, you can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have sh*t. You don’t own sh*t, not even the sh*t you created for yourself.’ And it makes me upset.”
Later on, Iggy tweeted, “The fact is I’m very influenced by hiphop, I grew up admiring it and now I make cross over music thats both hiphop AND pop. I love living somewhere in between both styles and I love being a voice people enjoy hearing. I’ve never worried about who else people also enjoy because I grew up loving so many artists! I can’t understand people who try to dictate what others should enjoy liking oranges doesn’t mean you can’t also eat apples. Someone else’s success cannot hinder your own, I don’t get that mentality.”
Azalea addd, “Special msg for banks: There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven’t is because of your piss poor attitude. Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or have self control. It’s YOU! you created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don’t have the mental capacity to realize yet. Probably never will. Now! rant, Make it racial! make it political! Make it whatever but I guarantee it won’t make you likable & THATS why ur crying on the radio. Enjoy continuing to bang your head against that metaphoric brick wall & Savor this attention. I’m the only way you get ANY. You’re poisonous and I feel genuinely sorry for you because it’s obvious at this point you are a MISERABLE, angry human being. Regards!”
As it turns out, Miss Banks didn’t appreciate the remarks. She responded, “Dear Lord, I Pray for this Clueless White Girl. None of this will make sense to her until she herself has children with a black man and has to deal with having black children in America. The interview was about things way beyond your mental capacity… Itchy Areola, you are so stupid and selfish to make any of this about yourself in particular. My tears had absolutely nothing to with you and everything to do with society and the media in general. You have absolutely no place to comment… do you know what a minstrel is? Because that’s what you are….. But, iffy azuzu will not play victim and make this about her, I made some very valid points about things that are important to me. Things in society and culture. Things that really resonated with a lot of people.”
Rihanna: Fan Favorite in Paris
She never seems to stop working, and last night (December 18) Rihanna showed some love to her French fans at Paris’ Trocadero Gardens.
The “We Found Love” singer was in the City of Lights to film a new music video for the forthcoming single “Kiss It Better,” and the shoot ended up going into the wee hours of the night.
After she finished up the project, Ri-Ri decided to sprint off into a crowd of bystanders without her security guards in tow.
Rihanna posted a photo from the project via Instagram along with the caption, “ran off set of an editorial shoot, straight into the arms of my fans… thank you french navy #r8.”
President Obama: Bad Call, Sony!
The Commander-in-Chief just announced that while he understands that there was much collateral damage to endure, Sony shouldn’t have bowed down to North Korea.
Obama explained, "Sony's a corporation. It suffered significant damage. There were threats against some of its employees. I am sympathetic to the concerns that they faced. Having said all that, yes, I think they made a mistake."
"I would have told them 'Do not get into a pattern in which you're intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks.’ That's not who we are. That's not what America's about."

During his acceptance speech, the 40-year-old hunk explained that his connection to Kaling was a bit surprising- “On-screen chemistry is a very mysterious thing.”
However, Mindy pointed out, “No, great writing means great chemistry,” before planting a big kiss on Chris’ face!
Presenter Ryan Phillippe also noted, "I worked with Chris and we had insane chemistry, not just the same kind of sexual chemistry he has with Mindy. A few weeks ago Mindy said she wishes every actress could have a sex scene with Messina."

It’s been a busy week so far and Amy Adams stepped out for even more promotional duties on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last night (December 18).
The “Julie and Julia” actress was in fine form as she greeted the audience in a sexy mid-length black dress with a v-cut neckline that showed off her enviable physique.
Amy ended up in the middle of a game of Christmas flip cup, including some festive red and green plastic cups and plenty of chugging.
Ms. Adams’ new movie “Big Eyes” is slated to hit theaters on Christmas Day.

Guardians Of Peace Demand All Evidence of “The Intervew” Be Destroyed
Earlier this week, Sony Pictures gave in to the demands of the Guardians of Peace and cancelled the theatrical release of their new movie “The Interview.”
And now there’s a new message from the cyber terrorism group, warning that if the James Franco/Seth Rogen film ever sees the light of day, they’ll drop even more private emails and sensitive material gathered from hacking into Sony’s computers.
The Guardians of Peace wrote, “You are very wise for surrendering. Now we want you never let the movie released, distributed or leaked in any form of, for instance, DVD or piracy.”
“We still have your private and sensitive data. We will ensure the security of your data unless you make additional trouble. And we want everything related to the movie, including its trailers, as well as its full version down from any website hosting them immediately.”
