Lady Gaga Put on a Witch Hat and Had Dinner With Julian Assange

Fuck being a waiter at the Ivy with a screenplay in your locker! The real way to meet celebrities these days is to become an international Hacktivist and chill in diplomatic asylum for a few years. Case in point: Lady Gaga visited Julian Assange—who counts Oliver Stone and Michael Moore among his most vocal Hollywood supporters—at his hole in the Ecuadorian Embassy last night. They talked for five hours, ate dinner. Then she left. This could have something to do with your regular neighborhood shit-stirrrer M.I.A.'s tweet at Gaga on Sunday night:

This, however, does not explain Lady Gaga's witch outfit. And now her Little Monsters website is resplendent with people yelling that Assange is not a rapist. Someone just make some gifs so that I can better understand this. Gifs are the only way I can make SENSE of the WORLD these days. (Incidentally, Mother Monster did have an accidental hand in Wikileaks.) [Express, The Australian, Daily Intel, LittleMonsters.com]

Jude Law's ex-wife Sadie Frost was apprehended and later released for assault during a fight with her boyfriend, model James Gooding, after a dinner in London. Her best friend Kate Moss apparently hated the shit out of Gooding—ten years Frost's junior—this whole time for dating Kylie Minogue and then talking to tabloids about it. [Daily Mail]

Matt Damon's 42nd birthday party in London, organized by large professional mensch John Krasinski, took place at a fun-sounding Chuck Bassian den of iniquity in London called The Box. Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton and Tom Cruise came too (by himself) and Cruise and Damon "got paddled on their rears" by the club's cross-dressing host, with the birthday boy given "extra spankings." Good show. Unfortunately there were no rando good Samaritans to get visual evidence, begging the question: If Matt Damon's apple bottom gets spanked raw, and nobody's there to hear it, does it make a brisk and satisfying slapping noise?

Katy Perry performed at a fundraiser for President Obama with Earth, Wind and Fire, and although the man himself wasn't in attendance, he doled out props later on ("My understanding is it was an incredible show. They just perform flawlessly night after night. I can't always say the same"). But the most important thing, as always, is Katy Perry's showtime manicure, as seen above. Only down side here is that Stacey Dash's Mitt Romney pedicure is now imminent. [VH1, Twitter]

Then she fucked up her manicure on a hayride. [People]


Lady Gaga Put on a Witch Hat and Had Dinner With Julian Assange The rage of a million Twi-Hards is now all that's separating Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and their tainted love. Although the two were headed for a reconciliation, "many of Rob's fans are still angry with Kristen and it has been decided that all three [Twilight stars] should go their separate ways." So the studio is sending Patz to Australia and St00 to Japan, and also Taylor Lautner somewhere but who cares about that. [Monsters and Critics]

Meanwhile, R-Patz hung out with Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge at New York's Monkey Bar... [Marie Claire UK]
