Julianne Hough is So Sorry She Wore Blackface for Halloween

Julianne Hough is soooooo sorry for wearing blackface as part of her Crazy Eyes from OITNB Halloween costume. She took to Twitter to express her contrition:

I am a huge fan of the show Orange is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created. It certainly was never my intention to be disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. I realize my costume hurt and offended people and I truly apologize.

You wore blackface — which has historically been used to disrespect and demean black people for centuries, which was quite literally invented as a method of disrespecting and demeaning black people — but had no intention of of being disrespectful or demeaning to anyone in any way. OH, OKAY. [Bossip, E!, Twitter]

Today in extremely inscrutable feuds, Kelly Osbourne told Lady Gaga to "eat her shit" via a hashtag after Gaga tried to send Osbourne a birthday cake through her mother.

"Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the would away? #JustSendItToMe #LoveNotWar" tweeted Osbourne, followed by an Instagram of the cake itself with the caption "#EatMyShit #Hypocrisy."

"I didn't know it was your B-day until this afternoon. Meant as a peace offering. Happy Birthday," responded Lady Gaga, gamely not mentioning that it's very hypocritical to respond to a birthday cake with #LoveNotWar and then #EatMyShit and #Hypocrisy. [Gossip Cop]

Doutzen Kroes says that she sometimes feels guilty about being a supermodel: "Sometimes it makes me feel guilty now that I am in this profession that makes certain girls insecure. I always say, I don’t look like the picture... If you put me in bad light with no hair and makeup, it’s not good... I wake up sometimes like, this is not what I see when I look at the magazine, who is this visitor in the bathroom?”

Not even Doutzen Kroes looks like Doutzen Kroes. [Page Six]
