Katy Perry Talks Breast Reduction
Newly married pop star Katy Perry has revealed she considered having breast reduction surgery when she was a youngster. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the I Kissed a Girl singer says she was carrying extra weight and suffering from back problems. She told the magazine, “I had really bad back problems and was a little bit thicker. Then I grew up and lost the baby fat and said, 'Hey, this isn't all that bad.'” Thankfully she didn’t go through with the surgery, because otherwise she might not have a career. Katy also says she’s a good girl, who’s not a good girl. She says, “I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease. I know that I have sex appeal in my deck of cards.” She definitely does. [Harpers Bazaar]
Heidi and Spencer Have Run Out of Cash
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are broke. The reality television couple has reportedly blown through $10 million and is considering filing for bankruptcy. Spencer blames their lavish lifestyle for their financial woes. He told Life & Style magazine, “We were immature, worrying too much about the famous part instead of the actual business part. In hindsight, we shouldn't have spent any of our money. We should have been low-key and saved.” Spencer said he and Heidi thought their television show The Hills would run for another five to 10 years and did not foresee its cancellation. The couple is apparently homeless and is relying on Spencer’s parents for food and shelter. Montag says, "At our lowest point, I considered posing for nude pictures in Playboy.” Unfortunately Pratt’s parents talked her out of it. [NY Daily News]

In an upcoming interview with Matt Lauer, President George W. Bush finally responded to Kanye West's infamous Hurricane Katrina statement that "George Bush doesn't care about black people." According to Entertainment Weekly, Bush stated that West’s off-the-cuff comment was a "disgusting moment, pure and simple." "He called me a racist," Bush told Lauer. "And I didn't appreciate it then. I don't appreciate it now. It's one thing to say, 'I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business.' It's another thing to say, 'This man's a racist.' I resent it, it's not true." Awww snap! It was so awesome if Bush recorded a diss song about Kanye. This could be the biggest beef in hip-hop history, yo. [MTV]

Tiger Woods Officially No Longer That Good at Golf
Tiger Woods lost his world number one ranking to a portly gentleman named Phil Mickelson this week. According to JockPost.com, this is not great for the sport. "I'm going to go out on a limb here and just declare professional golf as the worst major sport to watch on earth now. Yes, even worse than soccer and NASCAR." Oddly absent from the list is the WNBA. Is it worse than that? [Jock Post]
