John Mayer gave girlfriend Katy Perry a beautiful red heart-shaped ruby ring on Thursday. The 14-carat Valentine’s Day gift was created by Santa Barbara-based jeweller Daniel Gibbings (where the great Katy hails from), and cost John £30,000. Don’t get too excited though…it’s not an engagement ring, and is purely a sign of his commitment to his lady.
John told ‘CBS Sunday Morning‘ viewers this weekend that he plans to marry eventually: “I’m still the kid from Connecticut. That’s what you do. For the first time in my life I don’t feel like I’m in a celebrity relationship. I really don’t. I’m not in a high profile – I know it’s high profile. Doesn’t feel that way to me. And great! I’m glad…For me, it feels like something that’s very human.”
Something tells me that he took inspiration from a certain ‘Gossip Girl‘ bitch, Blair Waldorf, who sports an identical heart shaped ruby throughout the television series.
Lady Gaga has been forced to postpone several dates of her ‘Born This Way Ball‘ tour after being diagnosed with joint inflammation by doctors. In a statement, she apologised to her fans who were due to attend the tour in Chicago, Detroit and Ontario:
“There’s an unfortunate announcement coming out right now, concerning myself and the ‘Born This Ball‘. I’m so sorry. I barely know what to say. I’ve been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened. I’ve been praying it would heal. I hid it from my staff, I didn’t want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can’t. To the fans in Chicago, Detroit & Hamilton, I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. I’m devastated & sad. It will hopefully heal as soon as possible, I hate this. I hate this so much. I love you and I’m sorry.” A member of Gaga‘s ‘Haus‘ later added: “Due to a case of synovitis, (severe inflammation of joints), Gaga’s doctor has ordered her to postpone show in Chicago, Detroit and Hamilton.”
Former ‘The Only Way Is Essex‘ ‘star’ Lauren Goodger has revealed to ‘The Mirror‘ that she had a very major health scare 5 years ago which has led her to become heavily involved with cervical cancer charities.
“When people really have a go at me, I remind myself how lucky I am. I went for my usual routine smear test and they found abnormal cells. I needed to have a colposcopy, a procedure where they look at what’s going on and then treat it. The first thing that I thought was, I’m gonna die. I’ve got cancer. I was frightened about what they might find and I was nervous about the procedure. It was quite painful even though they gave me a local anaesthetic. Afterwards I bled for a while and felt weak. In my case, they were able to laser the abnormal cells away.”
“I was so relieved but I worried for ages that it hadn’t gone away and that something bad was going to happen. I had to go back every 6 months for a smear test. Now I just have one every year and, thank God, it all seems to be clear. So when the bullies are at their worst, thinking about what happened makes me realise how small-minded they really are.”
Former ‘X Factor‘ contestant and ‘Red Velvet‘ front woman Katie Waissel has posted a shocking picture on her Twitter page Sunday showing bruises she received from her ex in a vicious attack.
She separated from her ex husband Brad Alphonso recently after a 2 month-long marriage, and accidentally bumped into him in LA over the weekend, where she’s been working on her music. He was arrested by police and remanded in custody, but was released a few hours later without further charges.
The Twitter tirade went: “This doesn’t wash with me. Nothing like a name and shame at 02:54 am Los Angeles time. He’s a fucking liar he’s an asshole he’s a bastard I’m better off without a lower!!#PrettyFaceFor5Mins. #UntillTheyGetToKnowYou. Keep falling for the bullshit! Never again! Just have to think new inspiration for new material! #Asshole.”
Lady Gaga‘s former assistant Jennifer O’Neil is suing the singer for refusing to pay for 7,168 hours of overtime, totaling in excess of $380,000 (£243,000). Jennifer‘s primary job was to keep Gaga running between 2009–2011, but she claims that the job requirements surpassed her expectations by far, and that she was required to perform a number of unsuitable tasks.
For example, she accuses Gaga of forcing her to share a bed with her because she doesn’t like sleeping alone. Gaga will refuse to pay her a cent more, and will instead give her other ‘Haus of Gaga‘ employees a share of the fees, and she will take particular care of one employee called Sonja, who has breast cancer and needs a mastectomy.
‘The New York Post‘ claim that in a meeting with lawyers last August about the case, Gaga ranted: “She’s a fucking hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn. She’s just — she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe. And, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day. O’Neil knew exactly what she was getting into, and she knew there was no overtime, and I never paid her overtime the first time I hired her, so why would she be paid overtime the second time? This whole case is bullshit, and you know it. I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you have become to sue me like this. I’m not in any way discounting how hard an 8 hour work day can be, or discounting the role of an assistant.”
At the start of the week, Gaga addressed the issue on Twitter, implying that she was a lot closer to her than initial reports suggested: “Everyone’s headlines need an updating. “former assistant” is actually “my best friend from NY since I was 19.” Painful stuff.”
Harry Styles has spent the last 2 nights living it up and celebrating his 19th birthday in London, and last night the party boy was given quite a memorable gift…a visit from a stripper, in the middle of a bar!
The ‘One Direction‘ FittyMcFitterson’s gift was arranged by ‘Radio 1‘ DJ/ pal Nick Grimshaw. The embarrassed teenager spoke to ‘The Sun’ about the evening’s antics: “It was great. I was in stitches, it was really funny. We had a great night. Grimmy said I had to sit there because he was bringing a cake. He started telling everyone to be quiet but I could see the cake in the kitchen and the candles weren’t lit, so I was like, ‘What’s going on?’. Then Grimmy said, ‘Someone in here is underage’ and I saw a police hat bobbing through the crowd. I was like, ‘Oh no’. The stripper didn’t really say anything, she just began her routine. I have never seen my manager run so quick to cover the CCTV cameras but the pictures got out anyway. She stripped down to her underwear but unfortunately there was a no-nudity policy in the bar. She didn’t handcuff me but the funniest part was that when she finished she said, ‘I’m really sorry I couldn’t find my truncheon so I had to bring my nunchucks’. That was a bit weird. Then a guy in our group came up and said, ‘I went to college with her’.”
