Lady Gaga smokes a joint onstage. This is not the most scandalous thing she's done this month


Even monsters get the munchies.

Or, at least, we can assume Lady Gaga did after taking a hit of a joint that a fan passed her onstage in Amsterdam yesterday.

“Oh, it’s real,” she said in video that caught the exchange, and then, after taking a few puffs, “And for those of you who are wondering if I’m high right now, I am not. That is not nearly enough to get me high.”

Legally smoking some marijuana? So not controversial. Here are a few things just off the top of my head, just of things I’ve read in the past month, that Gaga has partaken in that make me much more likely to clutch my pearls (or, more accurately, to text my friends with a poker sad face and a WHYYYY).

1.) This tweet:@therealXtina (Christina Aguilera) just bought your new single. Seems the old Christina i loved has returned! Congratulations!! :)” Compliment or the most passive-aggressive tweet of all time? You decide. READ FULL STORY

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart together again? We imagine the reunion.

Oh happy day, Twi-hards! Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reunited in Los Angeles over the weekend, according to People. And it sounds like a relationship reconciliation might be in the cards for our favorite star-crossed lovers, after K-Stew broke R-Patz’s heart when she cheated on him with her Snow White director. An insider told People that Pattinson’s crew “think they’ll be a couple again.” And that’s enough for us to get excited. So what does a Robsten reunion look like? Well if we really thought about it …*


Julie Bowen on seeing Angelina Jolie: 'She's like a unicorn'

Angelina Jolie has been called many things, but Modern Family actress Julie Bowen went in a different direction when she called the Oscar-winning actress (who moonlights as a meme-ready wax figure) a unicorn.

“If I see Angelina Jolie, I have to look away … She’s like a unicorn,” Bowen said in an interview with Health. “It’s like, ‘There’s Angelina Jolie. We’re not going to seriously stand here and pretend it’s not like seeing a yeti, right?”

Stars! They’re just like us: Reduced to awkwardly staring at the pseudo-mythical creature in the room.

But maybe the two can bond over their beauty regimens (That’s all Hollywood stars talk about, right?) “I do find it odd people choose to do stuff that makes them look like crazy Hollywood faces, but I’ve got zero judgment,” Bowen said. “I’ve worn some ugly shoes.”

As long as they don’t get in the way of showing off a leg, we’re guessing Jolie is onboard.

Is Blake Lively the luckiest woman in the world?

On Sunday night, Blake Lively wed Ryan Reynolds a year after they were first spotted together in Boston, officially taking herself off the market.

And what a market it was. Since breaking up with her Gossip Girl costar Penn Badgley in 2010, the 25-year-old has been linked to a number of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. Shortly after her split from Badgley, she was rumored to be seeing the one and only Ryan Gosling. Then, there were the five months with Leonardo DiCaprio before Lively finally settled down with her Green Lantern costar.

With that kind of dating history, a girl can’t help but be jealous. But is Lively the luckiest woman in the world? PopWatch investigates.

After extensive research, I have narrowed the most important title ever down to three other contenders: Kate Bosworth, Taylor Swift and Reynolds’ own ex Scarlett Johansson.

Clint Eastwood on his RNC performance: 'Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people'

Clint Eastwood has no regrets.

In the Oscar-winner’s first interview since his unconventional (and meme-worthy) remarks at the Republican National Convention last week, Eastwood stressed that he was proud of how things played out, but — as many suspected — Romney officials were unclear about what exactly would be taking place when the 82-year-old actor stepped out onstage. “They vet most of the people, but I told them, ‘You can’t do that with me, because I don’t know what I’m going to say,’” Eastwood explained to The Carmel Pine Cone, a local paper from the city where Eastwood once served as mayor.

Eastwood said he had three main points he wanted to get across in his speech: “That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job,” he told the paper. “But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.” READ FULL STORY

Republican National Convention: Tuesday's winners, and who'd play Ann Romney in a movie?

I can’t believe I watched it either! I’d like to thank the following five forces of nature for making my first prime time RNC viewing experience such a pleasure.

1. Mitt’s Body Man: This is the genius name of Mitt Romney’s personal aide’s Twitter account. The guy keeps posting pic after pic of Romney doing human-like activities like watching TV, and of the happy Happy Days couple settling down in their sexy hotel room. But I’m mostly excited by the name.

2. Erin Burnett: The third Deschanel sister is a complete delight, able to voice everything CNN viewers are feeling with just her face! I like how she’s constantly tweeting on her smartphone and can barely be bothered to look up. (Along with Wolf.) READ FULL STORY

Kelsey Grammer denies crossdressing accusations to Oprah -- VIDEO

Oprah’s Next Chapter is really going there these days, isn’t it?

Fresh off her sobfest with Rihanna about Chris Brown, next up on the new-and-improved Oprah Couch Confessional Tour is Kelsey Grammer, ostensibly agreeing to be interviewed by Oprah about his dicey personal life to promote the new season of his Starz show, Boss.

And if the clip below from the interview is any indication, Oprah went for it,  diving in and saying to Grammer, “Let’s talk about the parts you don’t want to talk about…your ex-wife!”

A fairly relaxed-looking Grammer explained that Camille “always wanted to be famous,” and that was the reason he agreed to the Real Housewives franchise. But don’t believe everything you see on TV (Sorry, Housewives fans). According to Grammer, the idea that he blindsided her with the divorce — as depicted on the show — just isn’t true. “It’s a reality show,” he said. “It’s a show.” READ FULL STORY

World's oldest woman turns 116

Think you feel old? Well, the woman to your right feels a whole lot older. On Sunday, Besse Cooper celebrated her 116th birthday, making her the oldest woman in the world.

To put those many, many candles into perspective, we’ve decided to look at pop culture through the eyes of Cooper. So, if you’re feeling blue about your upcoming birthday, console yourself with the fact that you probably don’t remember the invention of the radio, movies and TV.

Cooper, on the other hand …


Snooki's top 3 tweets since becoming a mother

On early Sunday morning, the world welcomed perhaps the most anticipated child of the year. I am talking, of course, about Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, son of Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her fiancé Jionni LaValle.

The new mom gave birth just before 3 a.m. ET on August 26, but unlike the rest of us mortals, she didn’t let a little thing like pushing out a baby keep her from Twitter. To honor her hard work, we at PopWatch decided to compile a short list of her greatest tweets since becoming a mother.

3. “Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad.”

Whew, I don’t know about you PopWatchers, but I’m glad Jionni looks good holding that baby.
