According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the actress will be rubbing elbows with Gaga once again. “Lady Gaga and Lindsay caused a stir last month when they had their ‘sleepover’ at the Chateau [Marmont],” a source told Page Six, “And now it turns out that Lindsay will be starring in Gaga’s new video from her upcoming album.” When the reported video shoot might go down is still a mystery, with a source close to the singer saying, “Lady Gaga’s not shooting a music video at this time,” and reps for LiLo and Gaga not commenting.

Phelps Headed To The “DWTS” Ballroom?: Will Michael Phelps follow up his recording-setting 2012 London Olympics by spending some time in the “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom? “I haven’t really been known for my dancing. I know everyone who’s done it — I’ve talked to Apolo [Anton Ohno] and Natalie [Coughlin] about it, and they said they’ve enjoyed it and had a blast,” Phelps told Us Weekly. “I won’t say I’m ruling anything out, who knows?”
Bret Easton Ellis Slams Matt Bomer As Christian Grey: Writer Bret Easton Ellis went on a Twitter rant against the possible casting of Matt Bomer as Christian Grey in the upcoming big screen version of " Fifty Shades of Grey,” all because he’s gay. “Fifty Shades of Grey: the most popular book on the planet having Matt Bomer--a gay actor--play Christian Grey is absolutely ludicrous. Why?” he Tweeted. Followed by, “Okay I’ll say it. Matt Bomer isn’t right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He’s great for other roles but this is too big a game,” and “I am NOT discriminating Matt Bomer because of his sexuality. Fifty Shades of Grey demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?” We’d like to remind Bret that Matt has played straight umpteen times (and that it’s 2012), did you not see “Magic Mike”?
