Paris Jackson Tries her Best to Ignore Asshole School BulliesS

Being one of the most well-known teenagers in the world doesn't always make you one of the most popular, as Paris Jackson can attest – the 14-year-old telling Oprah Winfrey that some assholes at her posh private school try to bully her. Switching to the school from homeschooling in order to have a more regular life, Jackson found that all the veils and blankets in the world can't stop the abject bitchery that exists in high school. Though she tries not to let it get to her. "People try, but it doesn't always work. At school and some people try to cyber bully me," she said. "They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work." On the other hand, she finds that some of the people not going to town on her try and make friends with her because she is famous: "'If I feel someone is being fake to me, I will just push away." Sigh, the social aspect of high school sucks no matter which way you dice it. [Daily Mail]

Madonna has made no secret of the fact that she thinks Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" is a complete rip off of "Express Yourself" – performing a mash-up of the tunes during her recent concert in Tel Aviv after taking a dig during an interview in January. "When I heard it on the radio… I said, ‘That sounds very familiar,'" she said. "It feels reductive." But rather than engage in an Elton John-esque war of words with the icon – which is unfortunate – Gaga says that she's going to leave it well enough alone despite the fact it hurts her feelings. "It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work. And that doesn't make me feel good at all," she told fans at a gig in Auckland, New Zealand over the weekend. "I don't even want to fight back because it's more important to me to keep writing music." And that, my friends, is how you pretend to take the high road while making it pretty clear you think the other person is a total asshat. [NYDN]
