More and more people are going gaga for Lady Gaga ... online.

Buoyed by outrageous costumes and smash hits like "Bad Romance," "Just Dance," "Poker Face" and "Alejandro," she's become one of the biggest names in music.

And the biggest name on Facebook among all living beings.

Friday, she surpassed 10 million fans on the social networking site, eclipsing President Barack Obama for the top spot (Britney Spears has the most Twitter fans).

The possible alter ego of Jo Calderone is only #1 among the living, of course. According to USA Today, five entities have more Facebook fans than Lady Gaga:

  1. Michael Jackson
  2. Texas Hold 'em Poker
  3. Family Guy
  4. Mafia Wars
  5. Facebook

The rumored hermaphrodite told Rolling Stone that it's her fans who motivate her: "When I wake up in the morning, I feel like any other insecure 24-year-old."

"Then I say, 'You're Lady Gaga, get up and walk the walk today.'"

Carrie Prejean is an honest woman ... at least legally.

The controversial beauty queen exchanged opposite marriage vows with handsome but mediocre NFL quarterback Kyle Boller in her hometown of San Diego, Ca.

The Oakland Raiders signal-caller and the former Miss California said "I do" at Capella Church, located inside the Grand Del Mar Hotel in a 25-minute ceremony.

"It was beautiful," an eyewitness tells E! News of the Prejean-Boller nuptials. "They had cocktails on the lawn right after, and everyone seemed really happy."

BOLLER-ED OVER: Carrie fell fast and hard for her man.

Carrie Prejean and Kyle Boller made it official when the 23-year-old beauty walked down the aisle in a classically gorgeous, one-shoulder mermaid-style gown.

while Kyle Boller and fellow groomsmen wore traditional black tuxedos.

Leaving behind her six bridesmaids, Prejean and her new husband were whisked away afterward in a white Rolls Royce Phantom. Not a bad way to roll out.

Kyle and Carrie became engaged in February, and began dating July, after she weathered storm of controversy over her remarks at the Miss USA pageant.

Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!

Happy birthday to Tom Cruise, who is kind of the man.

Yes, he jumps on couches, gets married a lot and shares opinions on political and social issues that many would consider out of the mainstream. We know this.

But what's really wrong with the guy? He's been one of Hollywood's biggest stars for almost three decades and for all the weirdness, is basically harmless.

He's fun, makes cool movies and seems to care most about being a good husband to Katie Holmes and a good dad to kids Isabella, Connor and little Suri.

What more can you ask for, really?

Tom Cruise is 48 years old today. Man, has the actor ever aged well ... in reality, he looks nothing like his hilarious, middle-aged alter ego Les Grossman!

From Risky Business to A Few Good Men, the Mission: Impossible series, Tropic Thunder and Knight and Day, he's been one of the most successful stars ever.

For good reason.

So cheers to you, Tom, on this third of July. Many happy returns, and keep up the awesome work. Click to enlarge some classic Tom Cruise pictures below ...

Paris Hilton was arrested in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium for allegedly smoking marijuana a few hours ago at a World Cup match.

Not as surprising as the Netherlands' 2-1 win over Brazil, but unexpected!

The socialite was taken to the Mount Road Police Station in St. Croix, S.A. just before 8 p.m., Det. Mark Magadlela later confirmed to local news organizations.

It is believed that Hilton was indeed at the police station but has since been released. No further specifics were given as to why the ho-tel heiress was busted.

Paris Pose

Details of Paris' arrest remain murky at best.

Paris Hilton's Los Angeles-based lawyer says the 29-year-old has served her probation period, after her 2007 conviction for alcohol-related reckless driving.

Unlike Lindsay Lohan, her probation is complete (as of January 2010), taking a lot of the potential heat off her from this screw-up, whatever it consisted of.

One TMZ source also reports that Paris wasn't smoking dope, but an officer has reportedly said that Paris was caught red-handed in possession of weed.

Another report suggests it was a member of her entourage caught with the stuff, rather than Hilton herself, but that the whole crew was subsequently booked.

More details to follow as the story develops...

UPDATE 7/3: Paris is off the hook for the whole thing, and has been released from custody, with police reportedly even apologized for misidentifying her. Her rep claims the culprit already pleaded guilty, paid a small fine and was released.

Sorry Paris!

Her divorce all but a formality, Elin Nordegren Woods will very soon walk away from her six-year marriage with Tiger Woods with approximately $100 million.

The completion of Tiger Woods' divorce papers came to light this week after months of speculation over what eventually became a question of when, not if.

A source with direct knowledge says the payout is $100,000,000.

Originally, we had heard that Elin would score $750 million from the golfer, a figure reported by the New York Daily News, MSNBC, the UK's Sun and others.

That number is way, way off ... not that a hundred mill is shabby.

JUST DO IT: Elin Woods will be rid of Tiger, but those Nike royalties remain!

No idea where they got that amount, but it would be hard to pay out that much, given that Tiger Woods, for all his sports godliness, is not even worth that.

His net worth is somewhere between $500-600 million, Forbes says, and they also had a prenup. However, $100 million is more than it would have allotted.

Way more. Guess she had leverage ... a lot of it. Her biggest chip, aside from his 847 mistresses, was confidentiality - the cost of her silence proved steep.

Sources say Elin Woods will also receive child support, but the specific amount is unclear at this time. The $100 million is not speculation, though - it's done.

Not only is she set for life, but Elin can take solace in the fact that Rachel Uchitel scored a paltry $10 million from Tiger to keep her mouth shut. Sucker!

It was already a he said, she said battle for the ages, but find a hat, then hold the f*%k onto it, 'cause Vienna Girardi is really taking it to Jake Pavelka now.

In a new clip from Monday's episode of The Bachelorette, which will feature a joint interview with the formerly engaged couple, she drops this bomb on him:

"You are the biggest fake liar I've ever met in my entire life."

BAM. Talk about getting owned. But Jake, not to sit there and be humiliated, snaps back, "Who's the guy you had on Saturday night at the apartment?"

That would be Greek star Gregory Michael, whose name is bleeped out in the clip, and whose affair with Vienna was supposedly the last straw for Jake.

On Good Morning America Friday, host-pimp Chris Harrison admits their first face-to-face encounter since their split was "definitely contentious."

In the first clip released yesterday, Girardi, a former Hooters waitress, defends herself for selling details about their love life to a tabloid, claiming she had to.

"Jake felt really betrayed that she sold these very intimate stories," Harrison adds. "That's where it got heated. Jake really takes offense that he was sold out."

Among those stories he was so upset: That while we've all seen Vienna Girardi nude or close to it, Jake had no interest in hitting that for months on end!

Follow the jump for to see the fake couple bicker for yourself:

Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky are getting married this month. The location is the Upstate New York village of Rhinebeck. Save the date for July 31!

According to a local resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he/she isn't authorized to divulge the information, divulged away anyway on Friday.

Tamera Mowry, Adam Housley

Marc Mezvinsky and Chelsea Clinton will wed at a private mansion just outside the town about two hours north of New York City, the Hudson Valley News says.

The wedding will take place at the former estate of John Jacob Astor IV.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky got engaged last year.

That property is known for its breathtaking mountain and river views and is situated about 70 miles away from the Clintons' family home in Chappaqua, N.Y.

Reports say that a local caterer will be providing the food, while area high school and college students have been hired to help get the grounds into shape.

Chelsea is the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Marc Mezvinsky is an investment banker in New York.

Congrats in advance to the former First Daughter and her future hubby!

We reported her accusations in graphic detail last week, but Molly Hagerty, Al Gore's sexual assault accuser, faces myriad questions about her credibility.

Namely, that she went shopping her story for money years after the fact.

Al Gore Sexual Assault

Police in Portland, Ore., announced that they are reopening the investigation into allegations of sexual abuse against former the former Vice President.

The accusation of unwanted sexual contact came from massage therapist Molly Hagerty, who was called to his hotel room at 4 a.m. on Oct. 24, 2006.

Gore says he received a massage, but denies acting inappropriately. Hagerty says that he repeatedly forced himself upon her, despite her objections.

He was never charged and the case was dropped due to insufficient evidence. It's being reviewed, but there are reasons to be suspicious of Hagerty:

Why didn't she just leave?

She said she feared she would be raped, a somewhat dubious claim in itself, or "accosted by some security detail," when Gore had no detail that night.

Why did she wait weeks to make her initial complaint to police?

Hagerty waited six weeks to mention this, but she contends she told her friends immediately, and police may be interested in interviewing those people.

Why did she cancel interviews with police regarding the case?

Hagerty nixed three interviews with detectives about her criminal complaint. Three years later, Hagerty changed her mind again and decided to pursue it.

Did she receive money to tell her story?

The million-dollar question, possibly literally. Hagerty has twice been interviewed by the National Enquirer, which unabashedly and routinely pays sources.

As the Rielle Hunter-John Edwards and Tiger Woods-Rachel Uchitel scandals prove, that doesn't mean they lie. But it does make you question motive.

Do you believe Al Gore sexually abused Molly Hagerty?
