Performing live on New Year's Eve, Cee Lo Green made a seemingly minor change to the lyrics to John Lennon's classic song "Imagine" that caused a big uproar.

Shortly before the ball dropped, Green changed the lyrics from "Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too" to "Nothing to kill or die for, and all religion's true."

This didn't go unnoticed by many fans, upset with the change.

In response, Cee Lo Tweeted, "Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys! I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that's all."

That did little to comfort angered Lennon lovers, who lashed out on Twitter. Watch the performance below (around 4:00) and tell us if you think the criticism is warranted:

What do you think of Cee Lo's "Imagine" lyrics change?

Lonnie Short is sitting in jail right now after allegedly stalking Lindsay Lohan. The actress called the Venice, Calif., police after he showed up at her front door.

After a strange, unidentified man showed up and knocked on the door looking for her at 6:30 p.m. last night, LiLo understandably freaked the hell out.

Lindsay, 25, came to the door and asked what Short, 64, wanted. The man responded cryptically that he needed to speak with her. Lohan called for help.

After Lindsay asked the man to leave, he refused, demanding she open the door. Police received a call minutes later about a trespasser on Lindsay's property.

According to law enforcement sources, officials showed up soon after and arrested the man for trespassing. Lonnie Short was booked shortly thereafter.

He's being held on $1,000 bail, and hopefully won't go near LiLo again. Just check out Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos instead, man. No need to bother her.

Someone locked lips with Lady Gaga on New Year's Eve.

If you guessed that person was her boyfriend Taylor Kinney, you would be ... incorrect! But you're still up on your Gaga gossip and we commend you for that.

No, this would've been a bit harder to see coming. After Lady Gaga's New Year's Eve performance rocked Times Square, she puckered up at midnight with ...

The Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg! Look:

Lady Gaga, Michael Bloomberg Kiss

If ever there were a picture worth a thousand words ...

Embracing as the ball dropped, the Grammy winner wore a sequined mask and hizzoner donned a sweater embroidered with the American flag. U-S-A! U-S-A!

Bloomberg officially chose Gaga as his "ball drop partner" a few days prior to the event. For the star, the whole experience of NYC on NYE was very emotional.

"I can't even quite describe what tonight felt like," Gaga, who grew up on the city's Upper West Side, Tweeted. "Sort of poetic madness. A dream come true."

We're guessing she meant the night overall, not just kissing Bloomy. Although you never know, the charming 69-year-old does look handsome in that sweater.

Chances Mitt Romney knew who Kim Kardashian was before his speechwriters came up with this line? Not good. Chances you'll laugh anyway? Very good.

The Republican presidential candidate, locked in a tight race with Ron Paul and the surging Rick Santorum leading into Iowa's caucuses tomorrow, dropped some wit and pop culture knowledge into his stump speech in Council Bluffs on Sunday.

Romney drew similarities between President Obama's campaign promises of four years ago and the wedding vows of Kim Kardashian. Take a look:

"I've been looking at some video clips on YouTube of President Obama, then-candidate Obama, going through Iowa, making promises," Mitt Romney said.

"I think the gap between his promises and his performance is the largest I've seen since, well, the Kardashian wedding and the promise of until death do us part."

ZING!

Kim and Kris Humphries famously kalled it quits after just 72 days of marriage last year, a union some say was staged for Kourtney and Kim Take NY.

Romney, who will never be accused of having a magnetic personality, has nevertheless loosened up a bit in recent weeks with lines such as this one.

The 64-year-old father of five sons, Mitt later credited his daughters-in-law with keeping him in the loop on celebrity gossip. At least he's honest.

Despite what Twitter tries to convince us with its "Beyonce gives birth" proclamations, and as cute as the name Tiana May Carter might be, Beyonce is still pregnant.

One of the most hyped celebrity babies of all time has yet to arrive. 

You can't believe everything that you read on social media. Beyonce and Jay Z were totally spotted dining at Brooklyn's Buttermilk Channel on New Year's Eve.

Her baby bump was present and accounted for. Rumor quashed.

Jay-Z and Beyonce's baby is due in February.

The rumor started after the luxurious birthing suite at New York City's St. Luke's hospital was reserved last week, and "hospital staff" claimed it was for Beyonce.

Gossip spread like wildfire online, as these things have a way of doing, but rest assured, the beautiful bun in that oven will be baking for another month or so.

If that changes - or if Twitter tries to induce labor early - we'll let you know.

Brandi Glanville is a married woman again ... but may not be by the time you read this.

Temporary congratulations to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her friend, Mixed Martial Arts manager Darin Harvey. They got hitched New Year's Eve.

The 38-year-old model, whose ex-husband Eddie Cibrian famously left her for LeAnn Rimes, informed her Twitter followers of her new relationship status, writing:

"I'm married again - suuuuuuck it!"

The newlyweds celebrated in typical fashion, by visiting the Spearmint Rhino strip club. "Honeymoons with strippers are the best!" Glanville tweeted.

Brandi Glanville, who shares two sons with Cibrian, added that Darin Harvey is her "best friend forever" and she's now an "official housewife, for reals."

"After some beer and strippers he is now my husband," she said. "No joke!"

No joke is right, but it won't last. Calling their union "a drunken BFF thing," Harvey told his Twitter followers that their booze-fueled elopement won't last.

"I had a crazy Vegas moment," he explained. "Getting annulled tomorrow."

Third time's the charm?

Britney Spears only just announced her engagement to Jason Trawick, but she's already making plans for the big day, according to close family sources.

The singer is adamant that it be a much more low-key, traditional affair than her two previous weddings ... both of which obviously did not turn out well.

Hey, you live and learn right?

Britney, Jason

An insider explains: "She wants a traditional Southern-style wedding with comfort food, surrounded by her family, her two sons and all of her childhood friends."

With the exception of Jason Alexander, we're guessing.

Insisting that she not have a "Hollywood wedding," Britney "is taking this marriage really seriously." Given everything she's gone through, that's good to hear.

Hopefully this is a relationship that really will be forever. After all the celebrity breakups we've chronicled in the past year, that would be a refreshing change.
