Whether she's being mistaken for a Russian hooker or just performing in concert, singer Lady Gaga has definitely become one of celebrity fashion's top innovators.

We use that term very loosely, but at the same time, you can't deny that she always raises eyebrows (for better her worse) with her outlandish fashion statements.

But even Lady Gaga herself seemed less than thrilled by her latest style display upon landing Sydney, where she arrived after the aforementioned Russia incident.

FASHION GODDESS: Lady Gaga pics like this are nearly unrivaled.

Wearing what can best be described as a pair of old-fashioned panties (the kind with the added support in the middle, no less) a strapless bra, a white coat and purple hair, the dance-pop diva looked more than a little flustered.

We can sympathize. Who hasn't forgotten to get dressed before getting off an airplane, only to be swarmed by photographers in the terminal. It's rough.

Britney Spears' ginormous expense report just got even bigger after a former bodyguard filed a lawsuit against the pop star and comeback queen.

Kerry Vine claims that he sustained physical injuries while working at the superstar's former home at the Summit in Beverly Hills in March 2008.

"Advanced Security Concepts ... negligently operated their business thereby causing injuries to [Kerry Vine] who worked for [Britney Spears] at the time," Vine's attorney, Charles Swain, wrote in his declaration of intent to sue.

"[Britney Spears] breached that duty of care to the plaintiff by failing to ensure that he could safely perform duties that he was ordered to perform."

If we had to juggle 10 lawsuits a week, we'd look this dazed too.

Britney Spears is thus being sued for personal injury, battery negligence for which the bodyguard claims he suffered lost wages, medical and hospital costs, loss of personal property and earning capacity. A hearing is set for September 2.

So what happened? According to TMZ, a source involved in the situation says that Vine worked at Britney's home a grand total of three days. On the last day of that brief tenure, he volunteered to move a small table with a few other guys.

He called in sick the next day, complaining of shoulder pain. He's been on worker's comp ever since moving that pesky table ... a year ago.

We've already talked about Rihanna hairstyles once this week, but when she decides she's going to bringing back the mohawk, we have no choice but to do so again.

While few things Rihanna wears surprise us at this point (other than a smile, which made a rare appearance yesterday), we admit the 'hawk did catch us off guard.

Here's the singer heading to a recording studio in NYC with her fierce new 'do. What do you think? Kinda cool, or just way too much? Tell us in the poll below ...

Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford will headline the remake of Footloose, as has been rumored for weeks, while a new, hot name is being tossed around for the potential female lead in the forthcoming song-and-dance extravaganza:

Miley Cyrus.

"They've expressed interest in Miley for the part," a source close to the tween queen said. Another source close to the Footloose production further added that Cyrus "is definitely in the mix" to star opposite Chace Crawford.

That mix currently includes Hayden Panettiere, Amanda Bynes and Dancing With the Stars' Julianne Hough, all of whom have auditioned for the part of Ariel Moore, the independent, rebellious character played in 1984 by Lori Singer.

Either way, the studio has finally locked up Chace Crawford. The Gossip Girl guy had been in line for the role of Ren McCormack since Zac Efron got cold feet.

Chace Crawford is ready to get Footloose ... but with whom?

Miley Cyrus has not auditioned for the role, but her singing and dancing skills have already been proven. Then again, that would also be true of Julianne Hough.

While Cyrus' reps had no comment, it may be a bit premature to think she would or could take the role, as the Disney corporate drone's schedule is booked solid.

Chace Crawford and another Dancing With the Stars pro, Julianne's brother Derek Hough, were among those to audition for the role originated by Kevin Bacon.

Footloose, to be directed by High School Musical's Kenny Ortega, is set to begin shooting in March 2010, around when Chace wraps Season 3 of Gossip Girl.

Paris Hilton promotes herself like none other. She just didn't honor a deal to promote herself as part of the film Pledge This!, according to its producers.

A Miami judge today that he will not throw out a breach-of-contract lawsuit brought against the ho-tel heiress by the distributors of the 2006 drivel.

Investors claim Paris' failure to abide by her contractual obligation to adequately plug the straight-to-DVD sorority flick resulted in a loss of $8.3 million.

Ironically, she's now indirectly doing more to promote it - testifying how she Googles herself to remember what she said or did, rather than keep records, and so on - than marketing managers could have possibly dreamed of.

Her attorney claimed her to be "the single busiest person on the planet," but a judge didn't throw out the case, telling her she must stand trial June 8.

A Familiar Position

A judge's ruling brought Paris Hilton to her knees. Figuratively.

As for her other projects less likely to result in lawsuits, she's soaking up the sun in Europe, with beau Doug Reinhardt, promoting the upcoming documentary Paris, Not France, appearing this week at the Cannes Film Festival.

She's also already hyping the forthcoming Season 2 of My New BFF on MTV, something that seems to hearken back to her Pledge This! days.

"It was basically Paris' sorority house," she tells E! News "It's about sisterhood - there's pledging, there's crazy challenges. We had the best time. We started out in Las Vegas, and these kids really were up for anything."

Awesome. The second season kicks off June 2.

This one isn't quite as random as Hayden Panettiere and Steve Jones, but yet another sexy, new celebrity couple we never saw coming has been seen out and about this month, according to various entertainment news sources.

Audrina Patridge of The Hills and Chris Pine of Star Trek fame were reportedly spotted sipping drinks with friends at the Red Lion Tavern in L.A. on May 15.

Moreover, this wasn't the first time they have gotten together. In fact, they’ve been on a hot date: “Chris and his girlfriend broke up in March, and he is definitely single,” an insider tells In Touch. “They went out, and Audrina is into him.”

Apparently the date was a success. While they tried to maintain a low profile, the reality TV star, who just turned 24 earlier this month, and the hunky actor, 28, left his building in the morning back on May 2 - just a few minutes apart.

Guess Audrina was serious about being over Justin-Bobby.

Audrina Patridge is supposedly dating Chris Pine. We're not sure if this is the case, as she gets linked to a lot of guys, but they would certainly make a hot couple!

The two supposedly met at Tao in Las Vegas at ShoWest: “They both got awards and were at a dinner with friends. They said a quick hello,” the insider says.

“That’s where they met. Chris was looking at Audrina a lot, and you could tell that he thought she looked pretty - he was intrigued.” Who wouldn't be?

Audzo is said to be pushing her own reality show with producer Mark Burnett for when The Hills comes to a conclusion, or she opts not to stay on it.

Last night on The Hills, Spencer Pratt was under the gun.

Almost literally.

Heidi Montag’s father Bill, not to be confused with her stepdad, who married her mom Darlene, is a legit cowboy, and he threatened to kill Heidi's beau more than one time during his visit to California. Always fun to watch Spencer squirm.

Eventually, though, he and Spencer got along pretty well. Heck, Bill Montag even sort of gave Spencer props for starting that bar brawl over Heidi.

The two walked along the beach discussing Spencer’s intentions, which Pratt admitted were to live happily ever after with Heidi Montag. Bill agreed to give Spencer his blessing, but warned, “You would be the loser if you lost Heidi.”

Blessing - and engagement ring - in hand, Spencer took Heidi up in the Ferris wheel at Santa Monica Pier to ask her to marry him for real this time.

Heidi balked, saying there were many things in the way of that happening - Spencer has to apologize to Darlene, and to Lauren Conrad, and agree to a traditional, “princess wedding,” which The Hills villain had steadfastly opposed before.

He swore "I know the rules" and was ready to do all of that and more. Then he whipped out a giant diamond, and all Heidi's worries melted away.

Meanwhile, Audrina Patridge reunited with the White Tie Affair on the set of their music video shoot set and Stephanie Pratt, who previously hit it off with the guitarist of that rock ensemble, rolled up smelling of desperation and stupidity.

Steph and Audzo met up with the singer and the guitarist for drinks, and the boys immediately started making advances. The guitarist, who obviously does not meet enough girls, started inquiring about Stephanie's relationship status.

When she asked about his love life, he tried the “whatever happens on the road” bit, but said he has "something solid at home." I.e., living with him.

Despite how pathetic and annoying she is at all times, Stephanie didn't go the groupie route, later whining to Audrina about it. Meanwhile, Lauren Conrad was at dinner with Brody Jenner lamenting how she had to fire her lazy ass the following day.

LC did so bluntly (after Stephanie arrived late, natch). Stephanie Pratt cried. Lauren offered to help Steph find another job. Steph cried some more.

“Is this like being fired even though I’m just interning?” Stephanie asked, plaintively, as she packed her things and left People's Revolution forever.

What a moron.

Lady GaGa is no Ashley Dupre. But she does dress like one.

Who can really blame Russian police for a misunderstanding in which mistook Lady for a streetwalker while she was posing for photos in Moscow's Red Square.

GaGa, who was wearing a leather leotard at the time - do you even need to ask why? - asked her driver to stop at the landmark to take some pictures of her.

That's when suspicious cops arrived, out of nowhere, and called a halt to the dubious operation. Apparently in the Russian capital, people wearing leather leotards while posing in front of historic sites is not as commonplace as you might think.

Pretty much your standard Lady GaGa fashion choice.

Eventually, Lady GaGa was able to clear up the terrible misunderstanding and get her barely covered ass out of Russia. She continued on to Australia, where more people surely will mistake her for a prostitute, but will likely be less surprised.

How could the dance-pop diva possibly be mistaken for a lady of the night? It's quite obvious if you browse through our gallery of Lady GaGa pictures ...

It changes so often, you never know what to expect with Rihanna fashion.

Except, of course, that it will be eye-catching and provocative. So in that sense, nothing the music superstar wears can surprise us ... with one possible exception:

A smile!

Mya Fashion Choice

Who knew she was even capable. We're so used to that tough-as-nails, singular facial expression that we were completely caught off guard by her beautiful smile.

Heck, we barely noticed the spiky mohawk, zebra-patterned jacket or purple sneakers! Tell us what you think of the recovering singer's latest fashion foray ...

ONE OF A KIND: Other than leaked pictures of Rihanna nude, few things catch fans' attention more than the star's eye-popping, enigmatic fashion sense.

Quite the day for rumored romances.

First, it was A-Rod and Kate Hudson. Now, it's Hayden Panettiere and Steve Jones, who she's been linked to romantically of late, soaking up the sun while on break from the 2009 Cannes Film Festival this afternoon in Cannes, France.

Steve Jones is a British TV presenter ... personality ... something like that. Whatever he does for a living, he's looking downright giddy at the sight of Hayden. Here are the supposed new lovebirds enjoying the nice weather, and each other:


This is the second day in a row that Hayden Panettiere and Steve Jones, 19 and 32, respectively, have been spotted together on a boat on the French Riviera.

Hayden recently split from Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia, 31, and was said to have sucked serious face with Jesse McCartney shortly after that breakup.

Looks like she's moved on to better things.

Dating or not, these two sure look like they're having some fun in the Cannes sun. Click to enlarge more Steve Jones and Hayden Panettiere pictures ...
