The lovely Lauren Conrad is anything but basic to us, but Allure apparently views her as less exceptional than does THG's editorial department.

The 28-year-old beauty took to Twitter on Monday to call out Allure for labeling her exactly that in a recent style feature titled "Beauty and a Beat."

It may not look like a major diss at a glance, given that LC is famous for her understated, classic California style, but when the magazine elaborates?

Less flattering.

Lauren Conrad: Basic!

"Made famous by Kreayshawn, and viral by YouTube, the Basic woman is remarkably unremarkable," says the description under her photo.

"What's noteworthy about her style is its very plainness. Except to her. She swears those red soled shoes are cutting-edge," the article states.

"Basic" girls, Allure says, are known for their "skinny jeans" and "blowout or sausage curls." Ouch. Suffice it to say, Lauren was less than thrilled.

Say what you will about her, Lady Gaga is comfortable in her own skin.

While she didn't directly comment on this week's flap, in which the Twitterverse went nuts over Lady Gaga's weight gain, she said all there is to say.

The caption to the black-and-white pic reads simply, "Curvy and proud."

Lady Gaga: Curvy and Proud

Wrapped up in a fur coat and showing off her legs on top of a convertible, it seems that Mother Monster is quite at peace with her appearance.

That hasn't always been the case, she's acknowledged in the past.

In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she opened up about her issues, saying "I am better with food. I don't have an eating disorder anymore."

"I learned that my sadness never destroyed what was great about me. You just have to go back to that greatness, find that one little light that's left."

After seeing his throwback '90s fanny pack photo, you'd think The Rock couldn't possibly produce an online encore that would match such greatness.

He came pretty hard close.

The star of the upcoming Hercules movie (real name Dwayne Johnson) gave fans a behind the scenes look at one of the tasks before the mythical hero:

Patty cake.

The Rock, Patty Cake

On the set of the forthcoming film, the 42-year-old Rock encountered what seemed to be a normal toddler while donning his full Hercules regalia.

Was the youngster intimidated?

Hardly. She challenged him to a game of patty cake, throwing down the gauntlet and challenging the legendary Hercules to compete for the glory. 

Like any true hero, Johnson obliged.

As he later told his followers while posting the above shot, "When a two-year-old asks Hercules to play patty cake on set … well … he plays patty cake."

Nothing more needs to be said.

The Bachelor and Bachelorette likes to show off its successful couples (statistically few, but trending upward lately) to prove that the show really works.

Enter Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, married and expecting their first child, for a sweet - and bizarre - segment on last night's Men Tell All episode.

While the penultimate installment of the season was light on The Bachelorette spoilers, it did feature Ashley, J.P., and  ... Greg the Ultrasound Technician.

That's right. They found out on TV whether their baby is a boy or girl.

“Let’s do this!” Chris Harrison cheered, with the obligatory mention that brief interlude from Andi Dorfman's journey was about to make Bachelorette history.

“We’re going to find out the sex of this baby.”

Cute dramatic music. Cue awkwardness of gel being applied to Ashley's body by Greg with cameras zooming in really, really close for a good angle.

While it would've been hilarious, albeit even more tacky, to have Chris promise the results after a commercial break a la American Idol, he did not wait:

It's a boy!

J.P.’s eyes welled up with tears at the thought of his son, and we were reminded that this couple has always been pretty much perfect together.

At the same time, it felt that we were violating their privacy in a big way, and you couldn't help but be surprised that they agreed to this stunt.

Congratulations on the upcoming arrival in any case. Tell us in the comments and poll: What do you think of The Bachelorette's live ultrasound stunt?

Bella Hadid, the daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Yolanda Foster, has been arrested for DUI, according to reports.

Her arrest took place early this morning.

Bella Hadid Photo

Bella, whose stepfather is legendary music producer David Foster (Yolanda's current husband), and whose father is Mohamed Hadid, blew a .14.

Hadid was driving on the Pacific Coast Highway at around 4 a.m. when she allegedly blew through a stop sign and almost hit a police patrol car.

That's one way to get pulled over.

The sheriff's deputy immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol, and her breathalyzer reading could be even more painful for her because she's a minor.

And using a suspended license.

When you think of Girl Scouts, and think of Barbie dolls, the things that come to mind may not be analogous to the point where you'd think a Girl Scout Barbie should be a thing.

Oh, but it is!

Last year, the Girl Scouts of America partnered with Mattel, the company responsible for the iconic toy, to give Scouts the opportunity to earn a Barbie patch.

The "Be anything, do everything" patch - the group's first-ever corporate-sponsored merit badge - will soon be followed by a Girl Scout-inspired Barbie doll.

Not everyone's a fan of this partnership, as Susan Linn, a psychologist and director of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, makes clear.

"Barbie is basically a terrible role model," she told Today. "She's not about the Girl Scouts' principles, which have to do with leadership and courage."

Kelly Parisi, spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts, disagrees.

Farrah Abraham's Wikipedia page may list her as an American pornographic actress, but she hopes to land more “Christian” based roles in Hollywood films.

This new career goal was revealed by the Backdoor Teen Mom star during her media tour for Celebrity Sex Tape: In The Making ... her erotic novel.

We understand if your brain short circuited a bit just now.

Christian Farrah Abraham

She insists she's serious about this genre shift, though.

“I will be acting in two movies, and I’m kind of staying closer to roles that are Christian-based,” she revealed in an interview for her sexy book.

Abraham declined to offer more details on said films.

Of course, Farrah being Farrah, the contradictions are endless - not the least of which being that Farrah may be an actual prostitute on the side.

While she claims to be focused on securing classier and conservative roles in Hollywood, she isn't wholly committed to staying on the straight and narrow.

That's not where the cash money is, after all.

When it comes to celebrity gossip, you can read almost anything into cryptic Instagram posts from celebrities to suit the juicy story you want.

In this case, though, it really does make you think.

With Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed dating, all eyes are on the actor's on-off love Nina Dobrev for any signs of a reaction. Her first comment?

Not something you would consider positive.

  • Nina Poem
  • Ian and Nina

“I give / You take / I break / You fake PITY / I bleed / You dive in deep / Into my blood / Thick as syrup / Tell me / Are you a mosquito?” Dobrev posts.

It goes without saying that this is not necessarily about Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, neither of whom are mentioned or hinted at in the text.

It's also not an uplifting poem, however.

Considering that The Vampire Diaries cast members dated for three years in relative secrecy, and he's apparently going public with a new girl now?

Could be a lot for a young star to take in.

Future monarch Prince George, who celebrates his first birthday Tuesday, is seen looking at butterflies with fascination in two newly-released photos.

The youngest royal family member has his eyes set on the beautiful insect during an outing with his doting parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Prince George, Butterfly

The images were shot at the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at London's Natural History Museum by John Stillwell of the UK's Press Association wire service.

He also took the photo released Saturday of Prince George walking (running, some might say, as much as a toddler can do so) in his Petit Bateau overalls.

"He was fascinated to see the them fly but a little scared when they got a bit close to him," Stillwell says of the prince's encounter with the Blue Morpho butterfly.

Stillwell says he kept his distance and used a long lens so William and Kate, both 32, could relax and enjoy the peace at the exhibit with their son."

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting fame have been married 30 years, with 19 children and three grandchildren to show for it.

Almost as incredible as their offspring total? On their 30th anniversary, the Arkansas couple seems as happy and in love as the day they got married.

July 21 marked the couple’s 30th anniversary, which they celebrated with a "special lunch," and prompted Michelle to blog about their humble beginnings.

Say yes to sex, even when you're tired!

Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. - Michelle Duggar

Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be...

Michelle recalls how she personally baked their wedding cake, wore Jim Bob’s mom’s wedding dress and honeymooned in their native Arkansas.

“My wedding to Jim Bob almost 30 years ago was sweet and simple," she writes. "I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money."

“For the wedding cake, I made it myself and froze it. A friend decorated it for me using icing that she made with ingredients I bought for her."

"Another special touch was wearing Jim Bob’s mother’s wedding dress as my dress. Everything [at] our wedding was so inexpensive, but perfect."
