Lady Gaga‘s newest alter ego has emerged from incubation and is already causing trouble. Gaga introduced “Yuyi,” a wheelchair-bound goth-mermaid, to her Australian fans last week at a show in Sydney. The Aussie Monsters loved Yuyi, but not everyone was as excited. Not surprisingly, disability advocates everywhere are calling Gaga out for using paralysis for shock-value. But her biggest opponent may surprise you. What on earth could have Bette Midler in such an uproar over Gaga’s mermaid get-up?
Well, in 1980, Bette did the exact same routine. Keep reading »
“It was an irritating costume to wear. It was too long and, sometimes, I would trip over it. The gusset of the tights kept dropping between my thighs, and this made it very hard to walk with any kind of dignity … Sometimes, when the stunt team got too macho, I would tease them with my inner thigh.”
—Ralph Fiennes, who played Lord Voldemort in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2,” explains why he began wearing a garter belt underneath his menacing robes. Somehow, this information makes Voldemort seem much less scary. Also, Ralph looks so different without a nose! It’s easy to forget that was him under all that movie makeup. [ONTD] Keep reading »

I have a random pet peeve when it comes to reality TV—when an element of a show becomes so routine that the contestants know it’s coming and start referring to it by a single word. (See: “makeovers” on “America’s Next Top Model” and “restaurant wars” on “Top Chef.”) For weeks, we’ve been hearing about “hometowns” on “The Bachelorette.” For those not in the know, that’s when the title lady/guy has whittled the field down to their final four, and they travel to each contestant’s home to see what their life is like and meet their family. This week, Ashley Hebert‘s long-awaited hometowns finally happened.

We loved Tim Robbins in “Top Gun” and “The Shawshank Redemption,” and formed a full-fledged crush on him in “The Hudsucker Proxy.” So you better believe we will buying his first album, Tim Robbins and the Rogues Gallery Band. Tim explained why he decided to record an album last year. “I asked myself the question, ‘What is it that will make you happy? What is it you have not done that you will regret not doing?’” he said. “I was thinking about calling it The Mid-life Crisis Album, but then I thought that’s not going to sell any copies.” Hee hee. The final result doesn’t sound too crisis driven. It’s full of folky, Tom Waits-ish ballads. We won’t lie—Tim’s voice isn’t the best, but then again it’s Tim, so we’ll overlook that fact.
