Lady Gaga is being sued for reportedly $5 million dollars via federal class action lawsuit, with claims that her charity for Japan Relief was really a 'uniself' foundation. The lawsuit states that the "Poker Face" celeb's "We Pray For Japan" bracelets were really a scam, and that Gaga and her team have been pocketing money instead of donating in full to victims of the natural disaster.
The suit was filed Friday against Gags, who has been touring Japan all weekend and raising awareness about the tsunami and earthquakes that occurred March 11th. This disaster left Japan desperate for help, having suffered nearly $200 billion in damages in addition to health threats posed by the nuclear spill. These plastic Bracelets were being sold for $5 with a $3.99 shipping charge and a $0.60 tax which was allegedly boosted to provide additional funds for Gaga's team; instead of benefiting the disaster fund. The deceptive marketing may have been another way to boost the singer's career and not help a country in need. NBC Chicago reported,

Of course there were nay-sayers who attempted to attack the actor, including one saying, "Marriage IS supposed to be between a man and woman." But Alec simply replied ,"It's all cool honey...Jesus is down with the gay marriage thing. He called me. In fact, he's very happy."
Last night at the BET awards, the viewers choice award went to ::drum roll:: Chris Brown, wait Rhianna, wait Drake... wait Chris Brown. Huh?! Exactly.
Tiffany Green was the lucky winner chosen by Coca-Cola to present the viewers choice award, and oh she did. In a teleprompter mistake, she announced Chris Brown as the winner, before apologizing and announcing Rhianna as the winner. A presenter quickly interrupted the confusion to announce Drake with the award, which was still incorrect. None-the-less, Drizzy went on to accept the award with a speech and the opening line, "Well this is awkward."

Last night after dining on Thompson Street in SoHo, Jennifer Aniston and new man, Justin Theroux, were giving it to us in black and white --in photographs that is. (Courtesy of Terry Richardson.) The couple, who haven't been public about their romance since they've met, made sure to show us the money on these shots. The pair have reportedly been together since May, but have kept it on the D.L. to avoid accusations of Jen being a "home-wrecker."
According to a buddy of Theroux, the two only started dating after his former girlfriend, Heidi Bivens, moved out of their NYC apartment. Jen apparently, did not break them up. Aniston's friends also went on to say it is completely out of her character to, "hook up with a guy who has a girlfriend."
Cyndi Lauper, born Cynthia Anne Stephanie Lauper, was born on this date in Queens, NY; Gaga, step aside, let us look at a truly outrageous icon.

Today, she is in Bridgewater Hall, Manchester promoting her Memphis Blues Album; something far more soulful than the usual pop. No bubble-gum today just cake and champagne.
