Bobbi Kristina Brown told Oprah that the ghost of her dearly departed mom Whitney Houston visits her at the Atlanta mansion she's been living in since her mother's untimely death — which sounds like the synopsis for a zany Disney comedy. Dropping the borderline comforting/mildly depressing titbit during the talk show titan's anything-for-ratings exploit-a-thon, Bobbi Kristina added that spirit Whitney offers her words of encouragement and engages in some old-timey haunting by switching the lights off and on, presumably for shits and giggles. "Especially throughout the house, lights turning off and on. And I'll say, ‘Mom, what are you doing?'" she said. "I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, saying, ‘Keep moving, baby. I gotcha.' Her spirit is strong." Luckily they enjoyed a close relationship, so Bobbi won't be calling the Ghostbusters anytime soon. "Of course, we had arguments, but at the end of the day she was still my mother, she was my confidant. She was my everything. I was her everything," she said, adding that they got to spend some quality time together the day before Whitney died. "She stayed with me all night and all day. She was holding my head, everything. I slept in her arms all day." [NYDN]

Madonna is weighing in on the whole Adele/Karl Lagerfeld "fat" controversy by confirming that the designer needs to eat a bag of dicks. 'That's horrible. That's ridiculous, that's just the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard," she said. "Adele's a great talent and how much she weighs has nothing to do with it." [Daily Mail]
Let's hope that Madonna's thick skin also acts as a flotation device now that she's opened the criticism floodgates by saying that she has it tough as a single working mom. [US]

It's somewhat surprising that Rihanna is a fan of Jersey Shore's resident pickle aficionado, the singer outing herself by saying she was stoked to hear news of Snooki's pregnancy. "That's dope," she said. "We need more Snookis in the world!" The idea of which creates a rather entertaining mental picture. [Radar]

It should come as no surprise that someone who has been celebrated for nothing but her looks since a young age has grown up to be a bit of an entitled asshole, but Piers Morgan has added "absolute fucking brat" to the list of adjectives one could use to describe Kate Moss. "She came up to me at some charity thing with Naomi Campbell and gave me a full, haymaking kick. And then the next time we had dinner in a restaurant, she was opposite me ... and kicked me again … I looked at her and said, ‘Kate, why are you kicking me?' She said, ‘Because I want to,'" he said. "Kate Moss is utterly horrific. If people actually knew what she was like they would never, ever be interested in her again … She's just a real spoilt little madam." [Mirror]

She's made her living off being a bit of a larger-than-life vamp, but Raquel Welch says that her generation kept a bit of class about them whereas the youth of today feel compelled to act as if our lives are one giant orgasm. "I think we've gotten to the point in our culture where we're all sex addicts, literally. We have equated happiness in life with as many orgasms as you can possibly pack in," she said. "I think this era of porn is at least partially responsible for it. Where is the anticipation and the personalization? It's an exploitation of the poor male's libidos. Poor babies – they can't control themselves!" [US]
