First Karl Lagerfeld said she was "too fat" and then he came out and apologized, saying that his words were taken out of context and he too knew the sting of being vilified for your weight in the press. But Adele has come forward to say she couldn't give a fat fuck one way or the other because she's never aspired to be a model and is proud to offer a little balance when it comes to the representation of different body types in the media. "I've never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines," she said. "I represent the majority of women and I'm very proud of that." And it seems she's never been one to worry too much, saying last year that she tries to keep away from people who think weight is super-important. "I've seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have bigger boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don't want that in my life," she said. "It's just never been an issue – at least, I've never hung out with the sort of horrible people who make it an issue. I have insecurities of course, but I don't hang out with anyone who points them out to me." [Daily Mail]


It's an unsettling day when you discover that you agree with Fox mouthpiece Bill O'Reilly – but somewhat reassuring to know that it's because he's actually supporting Ellen DeGeneres in the whole One Million Moms debacle. Going to town on fellow Fox correspondant Sandy Rios, he said: "What is the difference between a McCarthy era communist blacklist in the '50s and the Million Moms saying, 'Hey, JCPenney and all you other stores, don't you hire any gay people. Don't you dare.' What's the difference? ... A conservative group in this country is asking a private company to fire an American citizen based upon her lifestyle. And I don't think that's correct … this JCPenney thing is a witch hunt and it shouldn't happen." [E!]

Though Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain have been tipped to play Princess Diana in a series of films, Naomi Watts is confirmed to play her in Caught In Flight - which follows the Princess of Wales during the last two years of her life. "It is such an honour to be able to play this iconic role," said Watts. "Princess Diana was loved across the world, and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen."

Making one of the only logical, non gay-porn-for-pay career moves post-The Bachlor, Jake Pavelka has signed on with the Chippendales for their 10-year anniversary sextacular. Though just a month-long contract for now, the position will give him the chance to "use his charm, sex appeal and hosting skills to keep the women entertained while leaving the dancing to the men of Chippendales."

Ha! I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop in the Halle Berry custody case. I knew this all had to have been part of a plan — starting with the nanny calling the cops on Gabriel Aubrey. In the desired result, she's off swanning across the Continent with phoney-baloney eurotrash royalty while her ex is stripped of all parental rights. Beats some shared custody arrangement where he'd actually have some sort of say in the life of his daughter.
