Lady Gaga regains title as 'Forbes' top-earning celeb under 30

Regardless of how beautiful or dirty Lady Gaga is, she is definitely rich. Forbes released the list of “The Top-Earning Celebrities Under 30″ with the pop singer reigning supreme at No. 1. Despite canceling the rest of her Born This Way Ball to undergo hip surgery, the 27-year-old performer earned an estimated $80 million from June 2012 to June 2013.

The list — which does not account for taxes, agent fees, or other related costs — includes mostly female celebrities. Nevertheless, 19-year-old pop star and rabble-rouser Justin Bieber takes second place with an estimated $58 million. Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, and Rihanna round out the top five, earning an estimated $55 million, $46 million, and $43 million, respectively. Jennifer Lawrence is the top-earning actor/actress under 30, raking in an estimated $26 million.

Last year, Swift was crowned as the top-earner on the list with a massive world tour, continued sales on her album Speak Now, two Grammy wins, and a CoverGirl endorsement deal. This year, Gaga took over with her cut-short (but still high-earning) tour, which grossed $168 million through January 2013. She also topped the list in 2011, having brought in an estimated $90 million. With her new album, ARTPOP, to be released this November, will the Queen Monster keep her throne atop next year’s Forbes list?

'Watch What Happens Live': It's Cher's world -- we're all just living in it

Last night’s Watch What Happens: Live featured Andy Cohen interviewing one of his idols, Cher. This late-night show is definitely geared towards a certain audience — if you have an aversion to trivia games played by reality stars living in Bravoland and constant mentions of drinking, then this isn’t the show for you.

Yet there’s a certain charm to it, mostly due to Andy’s sheer excitement over everything in the world. Even when he’s mentioning things like the “Jackhole of the Day,” he says it nearly bouncing out of his seat and with such a smile that it looks like it’s going to fall off of his face. It’s like he downs six espressos, three 5-Hour Energies, and several glasses of bubbly before every show.

So if he’s like that normally, how do you think he reacted when singer-actress-inspiration Cher appeared on WWHL last night? Let’s just say excitement is an understatement. At several points throughout the episode, I thought that Andy was going to start crying — I’ve never seen a grown man so thrilled in my life. Homeboy had some high expectations though: Cher was his idol growing up, even affectionately telling her how he used to sit transfixed in front of the TV watching her and her elaborate outfits: “You gave me life, you gave me hope, you  gave me fairy dust.” READ FULL STORY

Oprah snags top spot on Forbes Celebrity 100

After losing out on the No. 1 spot in 2012, Oprah is once again sitting on top of the Celebrity 100 throne. In my dreams, Oprah is currently lip-synching and dancing along to Yeezy’s “I Am a God” in one of her massive mansions.

In the annual Forbes ranking, pop sensation Lady Gaga came in at No. 2 while direcor Steven Spielberg and singers Beyonce Knowles and Madonna finished in the top five. READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Madonna! Stevie Wonder! The top ten tribute episodes -- ranked! VIDEO

As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

'Divergent' fun: Which faction would Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence and more celebs be placed in?

Divergent superfans, this one is for you. At the beginning of setting up this dystopian adventure, readers learn that all the people living in this world are sorted into five different factions when they come of age. An aptitude test helps place them, but the final decision is theirs (sounds wonderfully familiar, right?). While Beatrice, Caleb and all the rest had a tough decision to make, we got to thinking about where some Hollywood celebs would find themselves if they suddenly woke up in this world. Here are our best guesses for Jennifer Lawrence (Honest!), Lady Gaga (Brave!) and more.

Abnegation (the Selfless)

Angelina Jolie: Sure, she’s got her detractors, but she’s still one of Hollwood’s most famous do-gooders. The actress has traveled to Cambodia, Sierra Leone and many, many other places to speak and help with her main cause: refugees. She’s even a Goodwill Ambassador who has none other than Hillary Clinton as an admirer. READ FULL STORY

Sofia Vergara's bra racks up 'Machete Kills' body count -- EXCLUSIVE

Well, finally, a Hollywood movie that bends over backwards to give big gun supporters a fair shake.

Yes, that’s Sofía Vergara who – as Lady Desdemona, a femme fatale in Machete Kills – straps herself into a weaponized wardrobe that lifts, separates and mows down rivals.

It’s all from the impact-splatter imagination of Robert Rodriguez, the filmmaker who alternates between bloody (Sin City, El Mariachi) and fizzy (four Spy Kids films, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl) without aesthetic shift or ethical distress. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga gets a fern named after her

Just call it The Adventures of FernGaga.

Lady Gaga is a well-known fan of monsters, but now even plants are getting involved with her army of music and social justice. Botanists at Duke University have honored the pop star by naming a new genus of ferns, and 19 species within the genus, after her, E! reports.

“We wanted to name this genus for Lady Gaga because of her fervent defense of equality and individual expression,” Kathleen Pryer, director of Duke’s herbarium and professor of biology, told E! READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga covers Justin Bieber by barfing on stage -- VIDEO

You’re nobody until millions of fans love you — or until you puke while performing in concert, whichever one comes first.

Pop tart Justin Bieber first blazed the trail by yakking in Glendale, Ariz., which is in no way a comment on the fine people of the Grand Canyon State. Now Lady Gaga — ever the trendsetter — has taken up the barf baton, tossing her cookies during a tour stop in Barcelona. Insert your best Lady Gag Reflex joke here.

Unlike Biebs, Gaga barely missed a beat, continuing to dance sexily as a slowed down “Edge of Glory” played despite the throw-up. Thanks to her prerecorded vocals, the song itself was barely interrupted. The clip, if you can stomach it:
