Another day, another pile of celebrity dirt! It’s time to catch you up on all the latest celebrity gossip first thing in the AM so you can be in the know before all of your friends!
Today, we’re talking about Mariah Carey, Riri & Breezy and Gaga’s security detail going H.A.M. on a fan.
Let’s get it started!
Lady Gaga’s Security Takes Down Fan!
Lady Gaga has some amazing security! While leaving her hotel in Romania this week, Mother Monster’s security took down a fan who came running at the pop star like she was a free hot dog at a Yankees game.
Take a look at the video below:
Other than knocking the guy to the ground, Gaga’s reaction is pretty priceless. She jumps back a little like a damsel in distress… but continues shortly afterwards with a wave to her fans. Thankfully her knocked down fan was alright—just a little frazzled!
Al Roker Throws Matt Lauer “Under The Bus”
The TODAY show drama between the hosts keep getting awkward! After Ann Curry was let go from TODAY, it was very apparent that Matt Lauer could’ve cared less that his former companion was let go. In fact, when Ann was flown to London to help cover the Olympics, there was an awkward exchange between Ann and Matt in which she totally stonewalled him on live television. She’s bitter, and after ten years she felt her co-host “friend” did nothing to help her.
So fast forward to this week’s drama when the US Olympic rowing team visits TODAY. Matt Lauer asked the team how they celebrated their gold medal victory. They said that they jump out of the boat into the water. So Matt thought it would be funny by saying this: “The tradition here in New York is to throw the winners in the Hudson River.”
However, as the Olympians were leaving, Al Roker blurted out “Which is different to our tradition here which is to throw one of us under the bus! But that’s a different story…”
OUCH. It’s obvious he was referring to the awkward Ann Curry firing. But for someone with his experience to say this on live television is just awkward and downright..awesome! Obviously there’s some weird tension with Matt Lauer on the set. The cast really seemed to care about Ann!

Rihanna Breaks Down Over Chris Brown: Still In Love?
Rihanna breaks down all thanks to Oprah. Yes, if anyone can make a celebrity open up, it would be the Queen of all Media. On the next episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” which airs this weekend, Rihanna sat down on a personal one-to-one interview where she opens up about the Chris Brown beating, as well as her feelings about him now
Take a look at the video where she breaks down..
Basically Rihanna feels as though Chris Brown shouldn’t have received as much backlash as he did from the world. He was treated like a monster, when she was the one who was treated like a hero through it all. She actually said that she felt “protective” over him. In my opinion, I feel like RiRi really still DOES love him. Her tears say it all. She wants to be with him, but she can’t because she would be this awful girl who goes back to a “beater.” Do you feel for either of them through this? I just kind of want it all to go away…
Chris Brown Wants RiRi To Stop Talking About Him
But they won’t be going away anytime soon! Because Chris Brown is actually telling Rihanna to STOP talking about the abuse he inflicted on her. In fact, he’s more baffled that she wants to keep talking about something that happened three years ago, especially something that keeps getting rehashed over and over and over and…yeah you get the point.
“Chris doesn’t begrudge Rihanna at all for talking about it but he thinks that in order for them to both move forward and not be defined by that one night, it would be better to stop bringing it up.”
I AGREE BREEZY! He obviously wants to move on with it, and Rihanna just needs to as well. Which means so will I.
