Happy belated to Noreaga, who scored a cake that looked like a pack of Newports for his birthday yesterday. "Is there cigarettes in the cake? That s--t'll make the cake mad dope." He announced at the bash. "Honestly, thank y'all. I got a Newport, that s--t is what's up! There better be mad cigarettes in there!" We hope there's bogeys in the cake, Nore. T.O.N.Y. [Youtube]

Lady Gaga gave some insight into her lifestyle, pre-teacup. "My cocaine soundtrack was The Cure" she said. "I loved all their music, but I listened to this one song on repeat while I did bags and bags of cocaine...At the time I didn't think there was anything wrong with me until my friends came over and said, 'Are you doing this alone?' Um, yes. Me and my mirror." [Hollyscoop]

Ashlee Simpson co-star Shaun Sipos gave MTV the 411 on the new Melrose Place, in case you were wondering. "I mean, it's 'Melrose Place.' They're revamping it," he said. "You're going to see a lot of mischief. A lot of virility. A lot of people running around together." Ah, virility and running around, sounds like quality television. [MTV]
