Lady Gaga Celebrates Birthday with Boobs and Tea
Pop sensation Lady Gaga is set to celebrate her 24th birthday on Sunday, however the celebrations have already begun. The singer, who is currently in Australia on tour, took to Twitter to show off one of her early presents. In the pic Lady Gaga poses topless with red tea cup. The naughty photograph is accompanied with the tagline, “Nothing like a communist-red teacup to make for the perfect Birthday gift. Last words are for fools who haven't said enough.” Irrelevant and interesting. [Twitter]
Has Kim Kardashian Already Moved On?
It's being reported that the reality star, who recently broke up with footballer Reggie Bush, has quickly moved on and is dating another sports star—British soccer player Wayne Bridge (what is it with the Kardashian girls and elite athletes?). According to The Sun, the two met at a Miami nightclub and have “exchanged texts, have been in touch ever since, and will be hooking up when Kim comes to the UK." But Kim has taken to Twitter to denounce the rumor, saying, “Who the hell is Wayne Bridge? LOL. Someone please fill me in because I have no clue!" Hmmm, does she protest too much? [Hollywood Scoop]
Robert De Niro Gets Caught in Alleged Pepper Spray Attack
Robert De Niro’s driver allegedly doused a paparazzo with pepper spray during an altercation at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Thursday. De Niro was not present when the driver turned on the videographer, but he still might get caught up in all the beef. According to the New York Post, the driver and the paparazzo had a heated shouting match and then their spat ended with the driver spraying the cameraman in the face with pepper spray. The videographer claims the alleged act was unprovoked. [NYP]

It’s being reported that Axl Rose is being sued by Front Line Management, which claims the GNR frontman owes them nearly $2 million in unpaid commissions. Front Line Management founder Irving Azoff sued Rose in Los Angeles yesterday for nearly $1.9 million in unpaid fees. The company claims it had an oral agreement with Rose to receive 15% of the Guns N' Roses' frontman's commissions. The lawsuit states the commissions are due on more than $12 million in earnings Rose made for performances abroad. Attempts to reach Rose's current management were unsuccessful. [NYT]
GameStop Sued Over Lack of DLC For Used Games
According to IGN, a lawsuit filed earlier this week against retailer GameStop says the company is "deceptively misleading" its customers into believing a used game purchased from the store comes with all packaged downloadable content advertised on the box. This content, however, is only made available for free to those who purchase the game new, as the code to access the content can be only used one time. Therefore, GameStop is getting a legal-style judo chop to their checkbook - as they probably should. [IGN]
Microsoft Confirms USB Mass Storage Firmware Update for Xbox 360
Starting April 6th, Xbox 360 owners will be able to use USB flash drives to store profiles, game saves, demos and "more." Posting on his blog, Xbox Live's Larry Hryb said that the company has been testing the feature for a few weeks and that he thinks it's "great." A system update on April 6th will allow us all to see just how great it is. The update will support flash drives that are 1 GB to 16 GB in size. While USB hard drives "may work," he adds, you will still only be able to use 16 GB of the drive's space. [Kotaku]
