The Price of Beauty? Something like that. Jessica Simpson posted a bizarre photo of herself wearing a thick face mask on Twitter Saturday morning.

Some people need their accounts revoked. We propose nominating one each month, and calling it the Tila Tequila Award (she's in her own league).

"The Price Of Beauty :)" Jessica Simpson Twittered, referring to her globe-trotting VH1 show, which premieres on March 15. Yes, it is a real show.

"Thanks La Mer for the upper and lower zone radiant mask," she added, referring to the pricey Creme De La Mer Radiant Facial, which costs $320.

Yes, she paid $320 to look like this. You sure you want to collaborate on this show, Billy Corgan? Your alt-rock reputation is being diminished here ...

Yikes.

Filming the show "changed me completely," she said. "I haven't always had an inner confidence and I haven't always looked at my reflection and loved it."

Okay, having better self-esteem is always a good thing. We just don't need to see the progress every minute of every day. But carry on Jessica. Carry on.

Lindsay Lohan has come clean. Mostly.

The troubled star recently told The Sun (UK) all about her past cocaine use, claiming her estranged drug addict father got her curious about the stuff.

"I was only aware of cocaine because of my dad," she said. "I was terrified, but I tried it. I was stubborn, stupid, and wanted to see what it was like."

Police found Lohan, now 23, to be in possession of cocaine in two separate DUI incidents in 2007. She has been to rehab three times and is real thin.

"It's not something I ever want to do again," she says of cocaine binging. "It made me feel like sh!t. It became uninteresting to me. I'm hyper anyway and I have that kind of personality so I don't need something like that."

A NEW LEAF: Our little girl is so much more grown up and mature.

In 2007, after her father, Michael Lohan, began speaking negatively about her in the press, Lohan says she hit "rock bottom." Sure, give or take a year.

That's when Lindsay Lohan claims that she began rampantly abusing "alcohol, cocaine and other mind-altering substances" to mask her many problems.

"There was a point when I didn't know how to say no and was trying to please everyone. I was doing pop and making films. I thought I could go out, have fun, then go on set and record. I ran myself down and lost track of who I was."

While she still drinks - "I know my limits," she dubiously claims - she says often "there's no reason to because I don't want to feel like sh!t in the morning."

This is true, especially when one actually has a job.

2006: The downward spiral commences.

Through it all, the alleged celebrity hoarder claims she's in a better place now, and that she's learned from her mistakes - some of which terrify her still.

She still cringes when looking back on one night when she took the sleeping aid Ambien and climbed into a bathtub. Don't try that one at home, kids!

"I'd run a bath and fallen asleep on the floor. The bath overflowed. When I woke up, I was so scared. I called my therapist and said, 'Can I just go somewhere for a month?'" she says. "'I'm around bad people and need to take care of myself.'"

"I was terrified, but I put myself in."

That's what Calum Best said ... UP TOP!

As celebrity couples go, Evan Lysacek and Nastia Liukin are a gold-medal pair. Seriously, they've both won Olympic gold medals in their respective sports.

On his way to becoming the first U.S. man to win figure skating gold in 22 years last week, Lysacek had a little help from Liukin, a gymnastics champion.

The couple met in October 2008 in Rapid City, S.D., performing on the NBC special Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular and have dated since last summer.

"We became good friends and became really close since," says Lysacek, who attended the ESPYs with Nastia last July and things progressed from there.

Lysacek went to Dallas to cheer on Liukin during her gymnastics comeback at the U.S. Nationals in August, then this month, the couple switched roles.

"To see his dreams come true was amazing," Liukin, 20, who had a cameo on Gossip Girl last season, says of watching her man triumph at the Olympics.

"Even though we're not in the same sport, there's nothing like the Olympics. It was nice to be on other side, to be the support system. But I was nervous."

"She been so helpful to me," adds Lysacek. "She has been through it herself. If I'm having a bad day, she tells me to have faith and to keep going."

"Sometimes your support system has more faith in you than yourself. And when she tells me things are going to be fine, I really believe it."

For most women, this outfit would seem rather outrageous. But Lady Gaga being Lady Gaga, a peach-colored lingerie-corset thing is pretty standard fare.

She pulls it off, too, although it is unclear at this time what love advice only Gaga would give, or what THE SEX ARTICLE WE CAN’T DESCRIBE HERE entails.

Something about how Lady Gaga is a hermaphrodite, perhaps? Hard to say.

We'll find out in April. For now, here's a preview of the star's latest cover:

Lady Gaga Cosmo Cover

Lady Gaga's April Cosmopolitan cover looks about what you'd think a Lady Gaga Cosmo cover would look like. We can't wait to see their pictures of the singer.

Paris Hilton celebrated her 29th day of birth Las Vegas-style Saturday night, with her handsome, boy toy accessory Doug Reinhardt right by her side as usual.

The socialite strutted down the red carpet before heading into her party (don't we all) in a white Preen dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Chanel earrings.

Those were a gift from Doug, natch.

While there was no news of an engagement ring, Hilton gushed of her love for The Hills star (and ex of Lauren Conrad) while chatting it up with reporters.

Asked if the couple was ready to walk down the aisle, Hilton actually did not drop hints for once, demurring with: "We'll see what happens in the future."

Doug and Paris celebrate her 29th year on this planet.

"Right now we are so happy to be together and are really in love," she said.

That sounds nice. Doug Reinhardt has such terrific trophy husband qualities, we're sure he'll get to that level eventually. For now, though, the focus is having fun.

That they did the other night with a group of friends who snacked on a tower of commemorative cupcakes prior to partaking in the nightclub b-day festivities.

In addition to their  VIP table inside the club, they were soon accompanied by a giant cake and of course...a rendition of "Stars Are Blind." Life is good for Paris.

Matt Kemp is projected as the sixth-best player in fantasy baseball headed into the 2010 MLB season. If hitting home runs with celebrities was a statistic, though?

He'd still be behind Alex Rodriguez. But that #2 spot would be within reach after the awesome 22nd birthday party he threw for Rihanna in Phoenix this weekend!

Rihanna was "shocked" by the baseball star's grand gestures, apparently expecting a small get-together with a few friends, but getting a whole lot more than that.

Kemp had been planning the event for a month to make sure Rihanna's birthday was special, according to an insider, and boy did he come through in the clutch.

Flowers, cupcakes, tiki torches in the pool, engraved bottles of Ace of Spades and Johnny Walker Blue, and a personal Jamaican chef? A kick-ass time was had.

Sounds like Matt Kemp's birthday bash for Rihanna was a smash hit.

Around 40 people showed up, including friends of both the singer and Matt Kemp, who topped off the night with a cake decorated with Rihanna's many tattoos.

"It was so sweet and she was really surprised," the source said. "She looked just beautiful." Especially in the custom diamond necklace her beau bought for her!

This guy's really going the extra mile. While she has been coy about dating Matt Kemp so far, they're leaving little doubt about a major love connection going on.

Only 25 years old and in his prime, Matt Kemp would be a keeper in any fantasy league. Looks like Rihanna might rate him that way in the game of love, as well.

One day after Tiger Woods' public apology for cheating on wife Elin, he made good on his claim of returning for more treatment and therapy almost immediately.

Tiger and Elin Woods spent time together Friday after his apology speech and Saturday afternoon before he flew out of the Orlando area late Saturday evening.

It is believed Elin accompanied him on his flight aboard one of the golf legend's private jets, which took off around 7 p.m., bound for a rehab center in Arizona.

Previously, Tiger had been receiving in-patient care at Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Miss. This time, Scottsdale, Ariz., is the destination, although only for a week.

Elin Woods and their kids are with him, at least for now.

“Elin may not stay the entire week with him,” a source said, noting that while relations have thawed somewhat. “She taking the marriage one day at a time.”

Woods' wife was not by his side at the big press conference Friday, but there has been progress made in their marriage, with more time spent as a family.

“Tiger wants time with his family and he wants Elin to be part of his recovery,” the source said “He knows it’s a long road but he’s taking it one step at a time.”

Tiger and Elin had dinner two nights in a row before Tiger’s televised speech, in which he went out of his way to praise Elin and tell America to leave her alone.

Elin called off her divorce lawyer a while ago, but only on a temporary basis. She has told Tiger that doesn’t mean that she’s staying with him, reports suggest.

She's still not wearing her wedding ring, either. Will the golf star's apology be enough? Will he, as he says, prove how sorry he is by his actions over time?

Tiger Woods' apology speech was ...

Ali Fedotowsky was Jake Pavelka's leading candidate on The Bachelor before she voluntarily left to pursue a starring role on ABC's The Bachelorette this summer.

Oops, we mean to pursue her career back in "the real world."

In a new interview, Jake repeats his claim that the departed Ali was his "frontrunner" on the program before she was forced to choose between him and her job.

Speaking to ET Online ahead of tonight's Women Tell All special, Jake said of Ali Fedotowsky: "That night, when she left, she was ahead of all the other women."

"I can't tell you if she was going to be The One, but, that night, if somebody had said, 'Gun's to your head. Pick a girl,' it would have been her," the pilot added.

Ready For Takeoff

But, despite her not-at-all staged plea to return to the show approximately 12 minutes later, "we had a long way to go and I forced myself to close that book."

He says he did not invite Ali back when she requested to because he had already moved forward with the three remaining women. Not even a full episode later.

"The transitions from hometowns to exotics, that's where you really start to get intimate with them, and I'd already done that with all three of the women," he said.

Translation: He was getting so much tail in the fantasy suite on last week's episode that it wasn't fair to the other girls he was naked with at the time she called.

It is truly astonishing just how much natural drama and spontaneous plot twists occur absolutely unscripted on The Bachelor. What are the chances of all this?

Career girl Ali has to leave the show for her job ... even though she presumably took time off to go on the show in the first place. All of a sudden it's an issue?

Ali and Ellen

Then - what are the odds - when she returns to her hectic life at home, there's a camera crew there to catch it all and she immediately regrets her decision.

Ali can't even bear to go on ... you can always get a great job, but you can't always find love on a reality TV show with a complete stiff like Jake Pavelka!

She's filled with "anxiety" and "can't focus on work." It's tough, finding the work-life balance. As is scheduling time for all the talk show interviews she's done.

Anyway. Should Ali be the new star of The Bachelorette?

This isn't breaking or significant news, but if you enjoy a good, old-fashioned celebrity feud-turned-melee caught on tape, you might enjoy the video below!

Travis Barker and his friends were threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas, Calif., restaurant recently, although the reason the incident started is unclear.

The drummer and his posse were allegedly spitting at celebrity gossip cameramen, hitting the camera and, according to one man, slashing a photog's tires.

It is believed that Travis Barker first got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant, but neither photographer in the video is that individual.

In the video, Travis starts out screaming, "Where's your homeboy?"

The photographers claimed that one of their phones was stolen by Barker's crew. When one confronted Travis' friends about it, a guy can be heard saying:

"F**king fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

Classy gay slurs. Didn't John Mayer teach these guys anything?

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, no arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken and people were really, really pissed!

Watch the action for yourself after the jump, but beware, much of the language you will hear is profane, and the camera shakes a lot. You may get dizzy:
