Afternoon Delight: Angelina Jolie eats bugs, Gaga debuts “Hair”


Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Cathy Shim! The 3Way actress turns 31 today.

This morning Lady Gaga stopped by Sirius radio and sat down with Howard Stern for a 90-minute interview. Gaga discussed her family, her music and her meager needs. “I really don’t give a f–k about money at all,” she told Howard. Umm, then can I have some? Gaga claims she still lives in a tiny diamond encrusted apartment in Brooklyn and isn’t dating anyone at the moment. Gaga said, “It’s hard to find a boyfriend who doesn’t mind a good tuck.” Gaga also performed her new song “Hair” live. Listen to the audio below and let me know what you think.


Angelina Jolie is this season’s official Louis Vuitton spokesperson. (I’ve submitted my name for consideration next year and I’m still waiting for a call back.) Famed photographer Annie Leibovitz shot Jolie for the lovely Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign. (Jolie posed sans makeup in a wooden boat in Cambodia.) Jolie also shot a 10 minute commercial for the high fashion line and discussed the importance of family, her dream to cross the Sahara and meeting her son Maddox for the first time. Jolie revealed that her sons love to eat crickets and she claims they taste like potato chips. I doubt that. Jolie has yet to taste the tarantula on a stick or spider soup. Spider soup? No thanks.


Did anyone else see out comedian Jen Kober on Curb Your Enthusiasm last night? Kober stole the show as Dale, a resident in a battered woman’s safe house who ends up “battering” the show’s star, Larry David, and comedian Richard Lewis. The episode “The Safe House” will be re-airing this week on HBO so check it out if you can.

In a story for GQ, some members of the cast and crew of Bridesmaids talked about co-star Melissa McCarthy and her scene-stealing performance as Megan in the film. Rose Byrne told GQ, “Melissa said she wanted Megan to look like Guy Fieri from the Food Network.” Director Paul Feig recalled:

Melissa has the ability to take something that’s weird or challenging and personalize it and make it real. During the Brazilian-restaurant scene, Helen’s talking about this big house she has and that people can stay with her if they want. Melissa goes on this whole run of how she needs to do that because there’s a squirrel infestation at her house, and a squirrel had burrowed into her vagina and was living in her vagina. I could never get it into the movie, but it made me laugh so hard.

I hope McCarthy’s outtakes get their own special feature when Bridesmaids is released on DVD.
