The Entertation Index: January 18

January 18, 2010

Gaga, Lady –– We happen to secretly love Lady Gaga here at the Index, which is why we were sorry to hear this weekend that the singer canceled several shows after collapsing at a show in West Lafayette, Indiana on Thursday night. Gaga is said to have a condition sometimes called “dancer fatigue,” and it’s just another in a long line of maladies the Lady suffers, including “poker face” and “disco stick.”

Jay-Z — The rapper and mogul reports that it’s exciting and humbling to be known by world leaders, after expressing incredulity at his opportunities to dine with former President Bill Clinton and spend time with current President Barack Obama. As always, however, Jay-Z is too much of a gentleman to admit whether or not it’s true that he “hit” Icelandic Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardóttir.

Love, Courtney — What would the Index be without Courtney Love? The singer recently told website Contactmusic that not only is she so smart that she has to shave every day — whatever that means — but also that she went to the site of the World Trade Center at 3 a.m. to rewrite a song she felt was “too clever” to be consumed by listening audiences. The song’s title? “Skinny Little Bitch.” Mission accomplished, Courtney Love. That does not sound clever at all.

Manson, Marilyn — It’s reported that the shock-rocker is engaged to actress and long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood after he proposed to her during a Paris concert. This will be Manson’s second marriage — his first being to noted pin-up queen Dita Von Teese — and I guess I’ll go to the wedding; but if he sits me at the cutters’ table again, I’m totally saying something to him about it.

O’Brien, Conan — Though no decision has been made yet concerning the future of Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno and The Tonight Show, O’Brien says he’s already been contacted by a hard-core pornography studio offering him a role in one of their upcoming films. Apparently, they want him to do to a woman what NBC is doing to him.

Shore, Jersey — Last Thursday’s two-hour telecast of MTV’s Jersey Shore continued to blow the roof off the network’s ratings, up 9% from the previous week and drawing a staggering 3.6 million viewers — or, as it was described to the cast, “almost as many fist pumps you’d give if Armani Exchange came out with a Pope of Greenwich Village line of clothing and it was all on sale at the gym.”
