Lady Gaga is being sued for $5 million, with the lawsuit alleging that she deliberately raised the cost of shipping and handling for her We Pray For Japan bracelets so that she could earn a profit. Did she scam her own charity? The dude suing is with Michigan-based 1-800-LAW-FIRM, which is, uh, interesting, and it seems that he is not a Gaga fan. Quoth he: "I'm suing Lady Gaga simply to hold her accountable for giving the money that she was raising for charity to the cause that she was trying to raise it for." [Radar, Showbiz Spy]

Beyoncé — the first woman ever to headline the Glasonbury music festival — tells the BBC: "I'm completely high. It's so surreal, weird - just happy, and I wasn't kidding when I said this night is a dream. I felt like a rock star, and the crowd - they looked like rock stars, and I'm just so honored, really. This was just, like, a highlight of my career." [Contact Music]

Beyoncé also says: "When women don't have friends, I'm afraid of them. I grew up around women, I believe that we can teach each other so much. I'm always thinking about how unselfish we are and the things we need to hear and how much pressure there is being a woman. I try to write songs that will bring out the best in all of us and keep us close together. Put a ring on it? That's a nice little way to hint something without being the psycho that's like Marry Me. Sometimes we gain, five, 10 pounds, sometimes more. Whatever. Sometimes you just have to embrace it and find the beauty in it. So Bootylicious." [Showbiz Spy]


And! Beyoncé sent sister Solange 25 pairs of designer shoes for her 25th birthday. [Contact Music, Page Six]

Jane, you ignorant slut.

Life skills should be a mandatory high school class. One year of cooking home economics, one year of sewing home economics, one year of shop class, and one year of basic household finance, financial planning, and local government navigation (i.e., how to figure out who you have to call to get the pot hole on your street fixed). I don't care if there's no AP class, it looks bad on college admissions, and there's no standardized test for it. Kids need to learn that shit, and the fact that I didn't in high school impedes my effectiveness as an adult to this day.

In other words, Cameron, I totally agree.
