Lady Gaga says in deleted scene, her and Salma Hayek's 'House of Gucci' characters "developed a sexual relationship"

Lia Toby/Getty Images

Last year, Ridley Scott, the director of Lady Gaga's latest film House of Gucci, told the ReelBlend podcast that he wanted to release a director's cut of the movie.  Now Gaga is hinting that the director's cut may include scenes that show her character, Patrizia, and Salma Hayek's character, Pina, being, well...more than friends.

PopCrave has posted a clip from a panel on the film hosted by MGM Studios, in which Gaga says, "There’s a whole side of this film that you did not see where Pina and I developed a sexual relationship."

As the audience laughs, Gaga teases, "Director's cut, who knows? But this is a testament to [Ridley Scott] as a director because he let us go there."

In the film Gaga plays Patrizia Reggiani, who hires a hit man to kill her ex-husband, Maurizio Gucci, with the help of her friend and spiritual advisor, Pina Auriemma.

"I remember being on set with Salma and going, ’So, after Maurizio dies, maybe it gets...hot?'”  Gaga continues.

"You think she's kidding!" Salma cracks.

If Scott does end up releasing a director's cut, though, it's not guaranteed that this so-called scene will be included. Meanwhile, Gaga and the film continue to rack up award nominations; next month, she'll find out if she's been nominated for a second Best Actress Oscar.

GAYLE drops new single "ur just horny;" will hit the road with AJR this spring

Atlantic Records/Arthouse Records

Following the news that her breakthrough single "abcdefu" has reached the Billboard Hot 100 top 10, GAYLE has released a brand-new single with the unforgettable title of "ur just horny" -- along with a music video.

ur just horny’ is about the time i crossed the line in a friendship that i thought was platonic for years,” says GAYLE in a statement. “[A]fter crossing the line i noticed that they started treating me differently -- they weren't as nice and outgoing and honestly i couldn’t recognize them anymore..."

She adds, "Writing ‘ur just horny’ for me was coming to that realization that they didn’t want to be my friend -- they just wanted to get into my pants, and that hurt."

In the song, GAYLE sings, "You don't wanna be my friend/You just wanna see me naked again."

GAYLE has just been announced as the opening act for AJR's OK Orchestra tour this spring: She'll provide support for the "BANG!" band starting April 28 in Dallas through a May 21 date in Queens, NY.

Before that, starting on March 9, she'll do a series of intimate shows in Nashville, Hollywood and New York City.  You can get tickets and all the details at GayleOfficial.com.

Merchandise for BTS' Jimin sells out in seconds

Theo Wargo/Getty Images for The Recording Academy

BTSJimin is a merchandise-selling machine after fans bought out his new purple hoodie in a matter of seconds -- causing the online store to crash.

Korea JoongAng Daily, which is associated with The New York Times, reports that the Korean singer teamed with the company HYBE to launch the Artist-Made Collection by BTS.  While each member of the BTS septet contributed, only a few put forth some of his own designs -- Jimin, JinRMSuga and V.    

Jimin created a hoodie that contained several sentences, which include "You never walk alone," "Seven with you" and the number 13, which honors his October 13th birthday. He then promoted his hoodie prior to its launch by wearing it in videos. 

Then, when it -- along with some earrings -- went live at around 11 a.m. Korean time on Tuesday on the Weverse Shop, the HYBE servers crashed almost instantly due to the sheer number of fans accessing the site at once. The outlet notes that it wasn't just people from Korea trying to get their hands on the collection -- it was fans from across the globe.

It should also be noted that no other BTS member enjoyed such a stampede -- even V who released his "Virkin" last week.  While his collection sold out in seconds, his fans did not knock the website offline.

HYBE said it is now "positively considering" a re-release of the hoodie because of the public outcry and announced, "The decision will be announced soon at Weverse Shop."

Britney Spears' lawyer claims Jamie Spears took more than $36 million during conservatorship

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images

Britney Spears' lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, leveled serious accusations against her father, Jamie Spears.  One states that $36 million was taken from the pop star's estate as payments to himself and his legal team.

Variety obtained copies of the court documents Rosengart filed Wednesday, which state Spears paid himself "at least $6 million" over the course of the 13-year conservatorship.  The documents detailed the patriarch's payment plan and found his most recent payment, which was in 2020, was for $192,000.

As for the remaining amount, Rosengart says it was "petitioned for fees to be paid to dozens of different law firms" -- to the tune of over $30 million.

"Mr. Spears, an ignominiously-suspended conservator -- of a conservatorship that has been terminated -- now seeks to siphon even more money from his daughter," the documents continue, stating Spears should be mandated to cover his own legal expenses and not rely on his daughter' money, adding, "If he has already dissipated those funds, he should consider hiring other, less expensive counsel whom he can afford."

The court documents also claim Spears approached the Cooking Channel and other networks in 2015 with a show pitch, titled Cookin’ Cruzin’ and Chaos with Jamie Spears, and asked one of Britney's music advisors to help develop a promo reel.  

"Mr. Spears also exploited his role as Conservator to prevail upon Ms. Spears’s tour staff to help him turn his catering business into a Hollywood career," the documents further state.  

Forensic investigator Sherine Ebadi, a former FBI special agent, has since been hired to look into how Spears managed his daughter's financial affairs.

ABC Audio has reached out to both Rosengart and Jamie Spears' attorney, Alex Weingarten, for comment, but they have not responded as of print time.

Britney Spears sends Jamie Lynn cease and desist letter, will "no longer be bullied"

Image Group LA/Disney Channel via Getty Images

Britney Spears is threatening legal action against her sister Jamie Lynn, if she doesn't stop talking about her while promoting her new book, Things I Should Have Said. 

Through her attorney Matthew S. Rosengart, the "Toxic" singer, 40, sent a cease and desist letter, which was obtained by ABC News, to Jamie Lynn, 30, stating that she will not be "exploited" for her sister's "monetary gain." 

"As you know, I represent your sister Britney Spears, and I write at her request concerning the above-referenced matter. We write with some hesitation because the last thing Britney wants is to bring more attention to your ill-timed book and its misleading or outrageous claims about her," the letter begins. "Although Britney has not read and does not intend to read your book, she and millions of her fans were shocked to see how you have exploited her for monetary gain. She will not tolerate it, nor should she."

Rosengart goes on point out how the pop star was the "breadwinner" of the family and "also otherwise supported" Jamie before reminding her of the "abuse and wrongdoing" Britney has already been through. 

"...Having endured a 13-year conservatorship that stripped her of civil rights and fundamental liberties, Britney will no longer be bullied by her father or anyone else," reads the letter.

Rosengart also attempted to use the Zoey 101 alum's own words against her, adding that she "recently reportedly stated that the book was 'not about [Britney].'" 

"We, therefore, demand that you cease and desist from referencing Britney derogatorily during your promotional campaign," the letter reads. "If you fail to do so or defame her, Britney will be forced to consider and take all appropriate legal action."

John Mayer helps design hoodie to raise money for late friend Bob Saget's favorite charity

John Mayer was a close friend of beloved comedian and Full House star Bob Saget, and even served as a pallbearer at his funeral. Now, John has come up with a unique way to raise money for his late friend's favorite charity.

On Instagram, John unveiled a navy hoodie that says "Bob Saget" on the front, against a decoration of blue roses, with the logo of the Scleroderma Research Foundation on the back.  Saget was a board member of the Foundation; his sister Gaye died of the disease at age 47.

"Bob Saget worked tirelessly to raise awareness and money for the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a cause that was so close to his heart," John wrote in the caption. He noted that he collaborated with two designers to "help design this hoodie to keep both his memory and the enduring fight for a cure alive."

John added, "It's available now. All proceeds go to @srfcure."

The sweatshirts cost $55 and are available now via Represent.com/SRF.  They'll be shipped starting February 10.

Saget's widow, Kelly Rizzo, reposted the image and wrote, "Thank you @johnmayer for designing this and making this happen."

Among the stars who praised the initiative in the comments were Saget's close friend Jeff Ross, who wrote, "Awesomeness ! I'm buying a bunch of these," and John's close pal Andy Cohen, who wrote, "Purchased! What a great idea."

Bob's Full House co-star Candace Cameron Bure put heart emojis in the comments and reposted it on her Instagram.  She's selling t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies that read "Love Like Jesus, Hug Like Bob Saget" -- perhaps a little odd, since Saget was Jewish, but O.K. -- with proceeds also going to the Scleroderma Research Foundation.

Author of new Mac Miller book was "really surprised" by what people told him about Ariana Grande

Kevin Mazur/One Love Manchester/Getty Images for One Love Manchester

The late Mac Miller -- who was in a relationship with Ariana Grande for nearly two years -- would have been 30 today, January 19.  A new book about the rapper's life came out yesterday, and the author says what surprised him the most about writing it was how people described their romance.

Paul Cantor, the author of Most Dope: The Extraordinary Life of Mac Miller, interviewed nearly 100 people over three years. He tells USA Today, "I was really surprised [by] a lot of what was discussed after his passing with regard to his relationship with Ariana. I thought there would be a lot more salaciousness there and there was not."

"That relationship was very positive and loving between them," Cantor adds. "Sometimes you talk to people and you think they’re going to tell you crazy stuff. But everything [I was told] was that she was this really positive influence."

Cantor didn't interview Ariana herself for the book, but he's fine with it.

"I tried, but I didn’t get too far," he explains. "With something like that, I think that experience with him was traumatic for her, as it would be for anyone. I think she was and still is grappling with what occurred."

Mac appeared on Ariana's 2013 song "The Way," which became the first top 10 hit for both of them. They starting dating in August of 2016, and appeared together in the video for Mac's song "My Favorite Part." They split in May of 2018. 

Mac died September 7, 2018 from an accidental drug overdose.  Ariana wrote on Instagram a week later, "i’m so mad, i’m so sad i don’t know what to do. you were my dearest friend...i’m so sorry i couldn’t fix or take your pain away."  She later referred to him as "an angel" in her hit "thank u, next."

Shawn Mendes started off 2022 telling fans "It'll Be Okay," and now, he's telling them to get ready for another round of new music.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the singer shared a video that shows him and a friend listening to a new demo.  The clip then transitions to a studio, where fans can hear the fully mastered track ahead of its scheduled release.

Shawn just had one question to ask first, which was, "Y'all dig this?"  Of course, his 66.2 million followers began begging for more and demanded to know when they can finally add it to their music libraries.  At this time, it is currently unknown when the Grammy winner's new song arrives or what he plans on calling it.

The song would mark Shawn's third new single since releasing his Wonder album, which came out in December 2020.  It follows "Summer of Love" and, most recently, "It'll Be Okay."

Shawn is gearing up for his 64-date Wonder: The World Tour, which kicks off in March and will take him across North America, Europe and the United Kingdom.  He has yet to unveil plans for his fifth studio album, but fans are hopeful an announcement is on the horizon.

Selena said she is excited to serve as a judge because of the theme that Google selected for 2022.  She wrote, "This year's prompt, 'I care for myself by…' is especially meaningful to me. I can't wait to learn how students across the country are approaching mental health and self-care."  

Google is a contributor of her mental health educational platform, Rare Impact Fund.

Selena also shared a video to accompany her big reveal in which she talks about what Google's new prompt means to her.  "Ive been on a journey learning the best ways to take care of myself.  I know firsthand how scary and lonely it can feel to face the pressures of the world alone, especially at a young age," the Grammy nominee remarked. "I love to channel my journey into my art and I can't wait to see how students do the same."

The annual Doodle for Google contest is open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade, and the winner's prompt will be featured on Google's home page.  The contest is now open and entries can either be submitted online or through the mail.  The deadline to enter is March 4 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Katy Perry has been announced as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live's January 29th episode, which will be hosted by Spider-Man: No Way Home and Nightmare Alley star Willem Dafoe. It's the Oscar nominee's first time hosting the show.
