Demi Lovato is far from pleased with the on-stage Lady Gaga puking stunt that became the talk of her SXSW performance this week. Why?

Mother Monster is glorifying bulimia, in the young star's opinion.

"Sad… As if we didn't have enough people glamorizing eating disorders already. Bottom line, it's not 'cool' or 'artsy' at all," she wrote. "Addiction is addiction."

"Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you?"

The person booting on Gaga was "vomit painter" Millie Brown, who as part of the provocative show, put her finger down her throat and hurled all over Gaga's chest.

ARTPOP at its best. Demi is not a fan, even if she likes Gaga.

"It's not 'shade' and it's not 'hate,'" she further explained.

"But if someone has to come forward and say it. I'll take the heat for it. Putting the word ART in it isn't a free card to do whatever you want without consequences."

Lovato then tweeted to Gaga, "You're SO talented, if not one of the most talented in our industry PERIOD. Dope is INCREDIBLE.. but you don't have to do that."

Valeria Lukyanova, the Ukrainian model known as Human Barbie, is still making headlines. This time it's for her stated goal to survive "on air and light alone."

Yes, the real-life Barbie doll wannabe, whose doll-like features and ultra-thin waist have stirred controversy before, says she hopes to live without food or water.

Valeria Lukyanova, a.k.a. Human Barbie, wants to emulate the doll's appearance in real life.

"In recent weeks I haven't been hungry at all," Lukyanova said, according to the International Business Times in an interview. "I'm hoping it's the final stage."

Final stage before what, you're probably asking?

"Before I can subsist on air and light alone."

The website linked to a New Age practice known as Breatharianism, in which followers neither eat nor drink, believing they can exist solely on "cosmic micro-food."

Valeria Lukyanova also believes in reincarnation and claims to have been in contact with trans-dimensional beings, so by her standards, this isn't too out there.

Was Joyce Giraud extolling the virtues of eating disorders on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night? Maybe not intentionally, or overtly, but ...

“You can never be too thin, too rich or too sexy,” she said.

Too thin?

The comment on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 Episode 9 didn't sit well with Brandi Glanville, who slammed the former beauty queen.

“Joyce saying you never be too thin really bothered me, because in fact you can," co-star and frequent sparring partner Brandi wrote on her Bravo blog.

"Young women have enough problems with eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia ... [to have a beauty queen] perpetuate that one can never be to thin is just wrong."

The "Anna Rexia" Halloween costume, which sparked controversy a couple of years ago when it was first unveiled, is back and more offensive than ever.

The costume, if the name didn't make this clear, is a play on anorexia nervosa, a serious eating disorder. This did not go over well in 2011, but has resurfaced.

Halloweenparty13 (dot) com is selling the "Anna Rexia" costume for $39.99, using the same contentious tagline: "You can never be too rich or too thin."

Featuring a glitter screen-print skeleton mini-dress, a choker neckband, measuring tape belt and an "Anna Rexia" badge, the outfit is begging for backlash.

Dreamgirls International, the costume manufacturer, said in an earlier statement: "We understand that some people will not find the dark humor funny."

Before Jersey Shore, before Dancing With the Stars, before becoming a mom to baby boy Lorenzo, Snooki was just a normal girl trying to fit in.

What wasn't normal, however, was her eating disorder.

Last night, the reality star opened up about that longtime battle during her segment on Dancing With the Stars, admitting that "it got really, really bad."

"Cheerleading was my life in high school but it wasn't always easy for me," Snooki said, recalling her more difficult times. "I started to be anorexic."

"There were these little girls coming up, like freshmen, who were literally, like, 70 pounds. And I was like, my spot as a flier is going to get taken away."

While her Twitter rants (and ugly list) are becoming run of the mill these days, one recent Tweet from the star stands out as a bit more troubling.

When she's not telling Drake to murder her vagina or inviting Mac Miller to hop on her d--k, Amanda loves to discuss her desire to weigh 100 pounds.

Well, she's apparently getting close to that potentially scary goal.

She now weighs 114 pounds, according to her must-read feed.

LeAnn Rimes may have lost a ton of weight but the country singer claims it's not because of anorexia or any other eating disorder - just extreme tiredness.

The 30-year-old, who checked into a treatment last August to deal with “stress and anxiety,” has opened up about her drastic weight loss since 2011.

“People said I was [anorexic], but I didn’t have a problem with eating. I ate a ton all the time. I could eat my husband under the table!” she tells The Daily Mail.

“But I was going through a time when I just wasn’t sleeping," she adds.

"My mind wouldn’t shut off and my heart was breaking.”

A controversial Israeli law banning too-skinny models is in effect as of January 1, 2013, prompting praise, controversy and debate over how much weight it will hold.

So to speak.

The law requires models to prove they have maintained a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 18.5 for three months prior to a fashion shoot or show.

That means a 5'8'' woman can weigh 119 pounds minimum. The law also requires advertisers to disclose if they have retouched or doctored photos.
