Lady Gaga

It’s pretty awesome having Lady Gaga around—she really livens up any awards show with her crazy fashion or, um, performance art.

Last night at the Grammys, the newest member of pop royalty gave us three wardrobe changes. Each sparkly design was the work of Giorgio Armani.

First there was the space suit for the red carpet, followed by the Tinkerbell green leotard for performing alongside Elton John. After work was done, she changed into a minidress and a lightning bolt hat by Philip Treacy that was perfect for those cutaway audience reaction shots—maybe not as perfect as her VMA thing, but good enough for the Grammys.

Bono, Jay Z, Rihanna, Telethon

Nothing unites TV audiences quite like a natural disaster. Or, as it turns out, a good cause.

The Hope for Haiti Now benefit, which was broadcast by more than 60 television networks last Friday, was watched by roughly 83 million people around the world, including 24 million in the United States.

And the people watching weren’t just sitting there.

Donations made during the telethon now stand at more than $61 million, according to MTV Networks, which teamed with George Clooney and Wyclef Jean to get this show on the road.

The international production, headed up by Clooney in Los Angeles, Jean in New York and Anderson Cooper in Haiti, and featuring live performances and testimonials from London, was also streamed online about 1.9 million times during the live show, plus about 5.8 million times over the weekend.

What do you know? It was also the most talked about topic on Twitter, prompting 1 million tweets during and around the event on Friday alone, according to media monitor Collective Intellect.

Hope for Haiti Now will be accepting donations for the next six months.

Joaquin Phoenix

The people who have not seen Joaquin Phoenix are definitely in the majority right now. Ever since the Great Joaquin Phoenix Breakdown of 2009.

Now, remember: Last year, the Walk the Lineactor announced he was leaving acting for the world of rap music. He grew a beard longer than Brad Pitt‘s, behaved bizarrely on late-night TV and made the world wonder whether it was all a big joke.

He also dropped off the map.

We did a little digging, and here’s what we found:

My sources in the paparazzi world say they haven’t seen Phoenix for months.

“He’s been so reclusive, I’d be surprised if there was anything on him for several months,” one savvy pap tells me. “Last shots of him that we have are from almost a year ago.”

Apparently, the last time Phoenix was supposed to be officially out and about was an afterparty following that MOCA museum 30th anniversary blowout in November. The same party where Lady Gaga sat at a piano wearing a hat and Brangelina walked around.

The afterparty was at a restaurant called Sur, and Phoenix was listed as a cohost. But he was MIA.

I asked the event publicist to confirm that Phoenix was supposed to show up, and I also asked if maybe Joaquin would instead be hosting some other event of hers in the future. (Maybe there had been some sort of miscommunication or emergency?)

“He was supposed to [appear],” the publicist snipped over email. “Your last question is really irrelevant.”

Well, meee-ow to you, too. I guess we won’t be seeing Phoenix listed as a cohost of anything anytime soon.

So what else?

There have been reports that Phoenix is participating in a documentary with brother-in-law actor Casey Affleck, following Phoenix’s transition to rap music or what have you.

It sounds way too interesting to be true, but I reached out to Affleck’s publicist, who confirmed that the project is real. It’s so real it’s already been shot and officially is in postproduction. No word on a release date, but at least we know that the movie is no joke.

Unlike that beard. Which makes me laugh every single time.

For those who haven’t heard. . .

Usher, Tameka FosterKevin Mazur/WireImage.com

Is it just us, or has Usher been taking courses at the Andy Samberg School of Songwriting?

Either way, he knows how to drive his point home: The man is “ready to sign them papers.”

This, at least, according to the aptly titled “Papers,” a new tune released online by the R&B mastermind this morning, in which he discusses his pending divorce from Tameka Foster and gives a bit of lyrical insight fresh for the mining for fans and gossip hounds alike.

Oh, and all those persistent rumors about his marriage putting a strain on his relationship with his mom? As tends to be the case, they were persistent for a reason.

“I done damn near lost my mama/I done been through so much drama/I done turned into the man that I never thought I’d be,” he croons. “I’m ready to sign them papers.”

Unfortunately, the song, catchy as it is, doesn’t give enormous amounts of insight into his soon-to-be dissolved partnership. But he does offer up some details of his personal life, give or take a bit of artistic license.

“I ain’t afraid to say I got needs,” he sings at one point, following it up with the admission that he’s “tired of sleeping in the other room.”

“I know it’s you I love/I also know it’s you I don’t like,” he continues. “You leave me no options, girl.”

Sounds like he’s ready to sign them papers.
