The Daily Shuffle: Lady Gaga Explains Her Horns

lady gagaIn an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Lady Gaga explained a bit about those new bones she has coming out of her face. “Well, first of all, they’re not prosthetics. They’re my bones. They’ve always been inside of me, but I have been waiting for the right time to reveal to the universe who I truly am. They come out when I’m inspired.” But she says she’s not the only one who has things coming out of her face: “We all have these bones!” she said. “They’re the light inside of us. Do you mean body modification? I haven’t hurt myself…It’s artistic expression. It’s a performance art piece. I have never, ever encouraged my fans or anyone to harm themselves, nor do I romanticize masochism.” – USA Today

People magazine has an article this morning that explains more about Catherine Zeta-Jones‘s struggle with bipolar II disorder. Experts said a key indicator of the disorder is “a cycle of high and low moods, often with episodes of depression.” There’s also a quote from Zeta-Jones from when she spoke to the Sunday Times, where she said, “I’m lucky…But that’s not to say I don’t get down on myself. I try and stay positive, being negative isn’t good for my own personality. I don’t just bring myself down, I bring everyone around me down. It’s like a dark cloud. ‘Uh oh, here we go,’ and I have to snap out of it.” One Dr. David Miklowitz, a psychology professor at UCLA School of Medicine, said “Certain life events, changes, particularly those that affect the sleep cycle, can trigger symptoms. An event like a loss experience or family conflict can be a cause or a trigger of bipolar episodes.” – People

My actions were out of frustration during the heat of the game, period…The words expressed do NOT reflect my feelings towards the gay and lesbian communities and were not meant to offend anyone.” He plans to appeal the fine because that is “standard protocol,” and he said he plans to talk to gay rights groups. – TMZ

Reese Witherspoon said the scenes where she had to kiss Robert Pattinson in Water for Elephants was disgusting.
