Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney Broke Up
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney split up earlier this month. They’d been dating for five years, and got engaged on Valentine’s Day last year. The last time they were photographed together was in April. A source put it down to the long distance thing. Quote, “Their work kept them apart a lot. ‘Chicago Fire’ keeps him in Chicago and her work is almost always elsewhere.” Gaga is in Cabo right now, without her engagement ring. She broke her silence on the matter yesterday via Instagram, saying they were “taking a break” and asking her fans to root for them. Get more here.
Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.
Justin Bieber Won’t Hug Girls When He’s Shopping for Sweat Pants
Justin Bieber has made it known that he isn’t interested in getting close to his fans . . . and he isn’t willing to make many exceptions. He was apparently shopping for some sweatpants at Barney’s in New York, and a girl came up, and asked for a hug. He shooed her away, and kept shopping. There’s video of this going down, and the girl seems shocked that she was turned down. But after all the hate she was getting on the Internet, she deleted it from her Twitter feed.
Speaking of Barney’s, Justin is selling a shirt there, which is basically a Marilyn Manson tour shirt, with his name on the back. It says, quote, “Bigger than Satan, BIEBER.” This wonderful garment can be yours for $195. No joke. Get more here.

Garry started out in the ’60s, writing for classic TV shows like “Make Room for Daddy” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show”.

Is this a case of otherworldly justice being served? The “New York Post” says Bill Cosby is now completely blind, friendless, and housebound. A source says, quote, “His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind. “All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him. He is confined to his house in Pennsylvania, and the only person on his side is his wife, Camille . . . His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll.” Get more here.

She was a co-host on “The View” for a season, and appeared on “Celebrity Wife Swap”, “The Apprentice” season 14, and Kate has written three non-fiction books and a cookbook.
