LINDSAY LOHAN ADMITS SHE'S AN ADDICT: The interview LINDSAY LOHAN taped with OPRAH four days after getting out of court-mandated rehab aired last night. Among the revelations, Lindsay admitted she's an addict, and that alcohol is her drug of choice. She said alcohol became “a gateway to other things,” including cocaine, which she said she did because "it allowed me to drink more." LoHo also admitted to abusing Adderall in the past but added the only prescription drug she's on now is Nexium because of acid reflux.
As for how things got so out of control, Lindsay put at least some of the blame on her family. She said, quote, “A lot of stuff went on when I was young with my family and I grew up in a very chaotic home. There were moments of everything being wonderful and perfect, and then things being so uncontrollable and chaotic that. It's something that people go through and unfortunately I waited too long to face it."”
When asked why this time things were going to be different, Lindsay confessed she never took her previous rehab stints seriously because she had “resentment” about being there, and "never fully surrendered to the fact that I just needed to shut up and listen,” but this time “I wasn’t fighting at all.”
KATIE COURIC THROWS SHADE ON KIM KARDASHIAN SO KIM PUTS KATIE ON BLAST: KATIE COURIC put her foot in her mouth last week while discussing the KARDASHIANS, so KIM called her on it. Hard. What happened was Katie was talking about the Kardashian Klan and said pretty much what we've all said at one time or another, which was, quote, "I don't understand . . . why are they so famous?"
Kim did not appreciate being blasted, and fired back by posting a picture of the pajamas that Katie sent her as a baby gift as well as the note, which congratulated Kim and KANYE on the birth of the baby. But instead of writing an actual comment, Kim added two hashtags. The first one was, quote, "Hate Fake Media Friends." The second said, quote, "May I Humbly Suggest You Not Send Gifts Then Talk Shit."
As much as I hate to admit it, I'm Team Kim on this one. That is pretty hypocritical of Katie to suck up to them privately then publicly diss them like that.
Katie received the message loud and clear and backed off almost immediately ... issuing a statement that read, quote, "I've met Kim before and I think she's a really sweet person. I was responding to a reporter's question, and explaining how I'm intrigued by the public's fascination with her family. I didn't mean to hurt her feelings. The gift is genuine, and I'm happy for Kim and Kanye."
MADONNA SHOWS US HER (BIRTHDAY) PICS: MADONNA dressed like Marie Antoinette for her birthday party on Saturday night. "Perhaps we had too much Cale! But at my Birthday Party all I could see was LOVE," Madonna posted on her Facebook page along with a photo of herself. "Perhaps I had too much Champagne!" she added later. "I meant to write CAKE!" Yeah, that makes more sense. I don't recall history showing Antoinette saying "let them eat cale."
COULD BE TRUE, COULD BE CRAP - SELENA GOMEZ'S BIEBER-VENTION: Did SELENA GOMEZ'S parents recently stage an intervention? No, no, not for alcohol or drugs. For something evidently way worse -- JUSTIN BIEBER!!!
No matter how many times he acts like a jerk and she kicks him to the curb, she keeps going back for more. Family and friends believe Selena is a Bieber-holic and so according to the not-always reliable Life & Style magazine they staged a Bieber-vention. Says the source, “They told her Justin was a really bad person. They said she has to get rid of him from her life, otherwise they can’t be a part of her life − her new baby sister included. There were tears from everyone and Selena was devastated.”
CELEBRITY COURT - KANYE WEST WON'T BE CHARGED WITH A FELONY: KANYE WEST won't be charged for a felony in his run-in with a photographer at the Los Angeles airport, but he's not completely off the hook just yet.
Last month, Kim Kardashian's baby-daddy lunged at the paparazzo's camera and tried to take it away. On Friday the L.A. County district attorney's office declined to prosecute because the photog didn't have a significant injury, his camera wasn't stolen and it's not clear it was even damaged. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said the case would instead be handed over to the City Attorney for potential misdemeanor charges.

CELEBRITY COURT - ROBIN THICKE SUING OVER 'BLURRED LINES': ROBIN THICKE is suing two artists over "Blurred Lines". Not because they copied his song, but because they might claim he copied theirs. The family of Marvin Gaye has said that "Blurred Lines" is a lot like Marvin's song "Got To Give It Up", and people have also pointed out that it sounds like Funkadelic's "Sexy Ways". So Robin is suing them, even though neither of them has said anything about suing him.
Got To Give It Up:
PHARRELL WILLIAMS and T.I. -- who collaborated on the song -- are also collaborating on the lawsuit. The three of them say they have, quote, "reluctantly file[d] this action in the face of multiple adverse claims." The suit argues Gaye's family is broadly laying claim to, quote, "an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work." It goes on, quote, "The basis of the Gaye defendants' claims is that [they] 'feel' or 'sound' the same. Being reminiscent of a 'sound' is not copyright infringement. The intent in producing 'Blurred Lines' was to evoke an era...There are no similarities between plaintiffs' composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements. Plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else's composition."
'CRIMINAL MINDS' STAR CATFISHED: THOMAS GIBSON of "Criminal Minds" fame got catfished for two years by a woman in North Dakota. He finally found out she was sending him fake pictures, so he cut off contact with her. And now she's selling stuff to the tabloids, including this video of Gibson in the hot tub by himself, which he sent her around Christmas time last year.
According to TMZ, the actor had a two-year Internet relationship with the woman who exchanged explicit photos and video with the married actor. But she wasn’t who she said she was, and was using photos she stole from various porno sites. The woman claims things were going fine with the actor until about two months ago, when she got a letter from his lawyers demanding she stop contacting him because he figured out she was not who she claimed to be.
