A little over a week after Madonna won custody of four-year-old Mercy James, a nanny was sent to Malawi via private jet to pick her up. The two arrived in London’s Heathrow airport on Saturday where Mercy was immediately whisked away to meet her new mother and siblings, Lourdes, 12, Rocco, 8, and David, 3, at a local Kabbalah center for a meeting. I realize the tot got to fly first class, but even so, a flight from Malawi to London is no small deal for a kid — you’d think she could at least get a bath and nap first before hitting the prayer beads. The family — including Guy Ritchie, who is taking sons, Rocco and David, to his place for a bit while Mercy settles in — spent an hour at the center before heading back to Madonna’s London home (wonder when/if they’ll be heading to New York?).

This weekend, at the after-party following the Much Music Awards in Toronto, Perez Hilton tweeted that he had been physically assaulted by Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas.

What a bizarro story. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

For a long time, I was certain the artist formerly known as Prince (or is he Prince again? I get confused) was an alien. Turns out, he’s just a Jehovah’s Witness. After a lifetime of sexy dancing, the 50-something-year-old is in need of a double hip replacement, trading in his raspberry beret for a diamond-encrusted cane. But alas his highness has refused the surgery, citing his religious beliefs as his reason. Evidently, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t down with blood transfusions. [Celebitchy] — Or maybe he doesn’t want the doctors to discover his true alien identity? Hmmm.
After the jump, more celebs who have weird…er…unique views on medicine. Keep reading »
This must just be the week of frivolous lawsuits!
Beyonce has filed a federal lawsuit in New York against a group of people who are selling bootleg copies of her CDs and other knock-off merchandise at her concerts around the world.
According to TMZ, her legal team hasn’t been able to track down exactly who’s selling the unauthorized goods (how you sue an unknown person is a mystery to me), but they’re anticipating the sales continuing at Bey’s upcoming Madison Square Garden concerts on June 21st and 22nd so they’re trying to get a judge to rule the merch illegal.

Lately, hot mess Britney Spears has been blabbing about how she’s doing better and feeling happy for the first time in a while being on tour. Well, Brit, you may not be in rehab with a shaved head — but you are still dumb.
