She nearly collapsed on stage in March and had to cancel several shows earlier this year citing exhaustion. Her latest health scare - lupus - is even more alarming.

Is Lady Gaga on the verge of a physical breakdown?

"I'm very connected to my aunt, Joanne, who died of lupus," the pop star tells The Times of London, adding that she's been tested. "It's a very personal thing."

Gaga did not elaborate, but doesn't "want anyone to be worried" about the disease, in which the immune system attacks the body and which can be genetic.

"I have heart palpitations and things. But it's okay. It's just from fatigue and other things," the singer, who said she fainted during her New Zealand concert.

Hey, at least the amputated leg rumors are false ... right?

Her most recent health emergency: "The other day," Gaga said.

In Tokyo, where she was "having trouble breathing," the accused Christina Aguilera copycat was fine after receiving "a little oxygen" and went back on stage.

"I was okay," she says, adding: "I don't want anyone to worry."

Too late, girl. Too late.

As for buzz about her thin body, Gaga insists she doesn't "have an eating problem," but has a busy schedule that doesn't allow "very much time to eat."

Is that not an eating problem then? "I really don't do drugs. I don't touch cocaine any more. I don't smoke," she says. "I do take care of myself."

But much like the Lady Gaga hermaphrodite rumors, don't expect a break anytime soon. She's been touring so relentlessly, it's not even funny.

"People say I should take a break," says the singer. "But I'm like, 'Why should I take a break? What do you want me to do? Go on vacation?"

Slipknot bassist Paul Gray has died. He was only 38. His death follows fellow metal pioneers Ronnie James Dio and Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele.

Gray was found dead Monday in a suburban Iowa hotel room. The cause of death has not been reported, but the loss already sent fans and artists reeling.

Slipknot's most recent studio album, All Hope Is Gone, was released in 2008. The album was mixed by legendary English metal producer Colin Richardson.

Richardson's rep said this in a statement: "[Colin] is a true fan to the core and sends his love and condolences to everyone in Slipknot and their camp."

"I'm so crushed to hear about the passing of Paul Gray," Shadows Fall singer Brian Fair told MTV News. "I had the pleasure of first getting to know him on a press trip to New York City before our tour with Slipknot and Lamb of God in 2005."

R.I.P. Paul Gray (1972-2010).

"I had the pleasure of sharing stages with him around the world. A great musician, an underrated songwriter and a truly warm soul underneath the evil mask he rocked onstage, this is a huge loss to the metal world. He will be missed deeply."

Another band Richardson has worked with, legendary thrashers Sepultura, took to the Internet. "RIP Paul Gray, we're shocked and very sad," current members Paulo Pinto Jr., Andreas Kisser, Derrick Green and Jean Dolabella said in a joint statement.

The boys in Nonpoint were on Ozzfest with Slipknot back in 2001.

"I am deeply saddened to hear and read about the death of Paul Gray," drummer Rob Rivera said. "To all in Slipknot and in Paul's family, Nonpoint send all our love, condolences and prayers. You will be missed by all your friends and fans."

"Rest In Peace my metal brother."

What a difference a month makes...

Bret Michaels went from his death bed in late April to the top of the board room last night, becoming the latest Celebrity Apprentice champion when Donald Trump "hired" the ailing rocker.

"I gotta tell you, I am so thrilled, I am beyond thrilled to have won," he told E! News at the show's after-party.

Due to his recent stroke, of course, Michaels had to jet across the country in order to attend the finale, a decision that was NOT doctor-approved.

"We went back into the hospital again, they said, 'Listen, we don't advise that you fly, but if you wanna do it, here's what you need to do.' And I'm here, and I didn't want to miss this for the world. I'm ready to rock," he said.

As usual Donald Trump also chimed in with overflowing praise - but, for once, it wasn't for himself.

"Bret has been fantastic right from the beginning," Trump said. "He almost died a month ago, less than a month ago. He was a little bit shaky tonight, but in the end he came through like he always does."

That's what countless groupies have said.

Was sexting Joslyn James worth it? Scorned wife Elin Nordegren is reportedly trying to club an eye-popping $750 million out of Tiger Woods in their divorce.

That sum of money may be a bit of a reach. Forbes has estimated his net work at a paltry $600 million (though he has earned $1 billion career, to his credit).

Sources close to the Tiger divorce negotiations say the golfer hasn't agreed to any sum, but when he does, he wants total, legal silence from his ex in return.

About the collapse of their marriage, about their life together. Then, now, forever. Absolutely nothing to the media. He's pressed her on this subject already.

But how will that sit with Elin Woods?

So far, not well! Nordegren said no to signing a lifetime "confidentiality clause" that would prevent her from writing a book or doing interviews about the split.

OUCH: Can Tiger spare $750 million? Elin Woods is gonna find out!

She reportedly also wants full custody of their two young children even though it was first believed that the couple were going to agree to joint custody.

Sources said the Tiger Woods divorce discussions "have turned extremely testy" and are already getting ugly as the couple no longer speaks to each other.

Nordegren has spent a lot of time away in recent months. She went to Arizona alone for a week and took the kids to Sweden while Tiger returned to golf.

Elin is said to be considering a move to Sweden for good. Tiger Woods, meanwhile, has supposedly been on the prowl in Florida with an Elin look-alike.

That's sure to go over really well.

It seems like only last week Demi Lovato was gushing about Joe Jonas and even thanking fans for her relationship with the singer.

Oh, wait... it was!

Now, just days later, "impeccable sources" allegedly tell Perez Hilton that Jonas has ended it with Lovato - in an astoundingly, hilariously immature way.

"Joe had his dad call Demi to break things off," an insider claims.

We're working to verify the rumor of this break-up and the way in which it was supposedly handled. But we can say this: Perez Hilton may be a self-serving, talentless moron who draws penises on photos because he finds that funny, but he does typically come through with reliable information.

Fortunately, pals of Demi say the recent Grey's Anatomy guest star "had a good cry" but is doing okay: "Demi is single and already exploring her options."

Hear that, Nick Jonas? Make the call!

Demi and Joe are still expected to go on tour together this summer. That could be more awkward than a meeting between LeBron James and Delonte West.

** UPDATE: Lovato has released this statement:

"There are so many crazy rumors flying around today. I'd like to clear a few things up. First, Joe and I did split but it wasn't over the phone. Things didn't work out but we'll remain friends. Secondly, I am NOT dating anybody already. Nothing is more important to me than the relationship I have with my fans. Just thought you guys should know this."

Last year, Ashton Kutcher beat CNN to a million followers on Twitter, proclaiming himself the King of All Social Media. Okay, the first part is true anyway?

Since then, he's enjoyed his perch as the undisputed leader in total fans on the micro-blogging site ... until today, when Britney Spears surpassed him.

Yup, Brit has opened up a 4,950,699-4,944,227 lead. Ashton's response? He does not care. Fittingly, he Twittered his response to playing second fiddle:

He wrote: "2nd most pop Q 'What do U think about Brittney having more followers than u?' Answer 'I don't care. Aren't u suppose 2B a movie reporter?'"

Ashton Twittered this during a press junket for his and Katherine Heigl's new movie Killers. Seems like he's taking it in stride ... or is secretly bitter.

As for Britney, she celebrated her reign by actually Twittering: "WOW!!!!! #1 on Twitter! Thank you! Tweet me some questions this morning! xoxo -Brit"

This is surprising and yet not. Surprising because Britney's Twitter is boring and rarely written by her. It's usually her manager writing some BS story.

It's not surprising in the sense that Britney Spears is a bigger star than Ashton Kutcher, and one of the most famous people alive ... for better or worse.

Either way, if we were Britney, we wouldn't get too comfortable. There are other threats to the crown who aren't even on Twitter yet. One word: Bieber.

P.S. Please follow THG on Twitter! We have slightly fewer followers than Britney Spears ... but you can bring our celebrity gossip site one person closer.

Even though she's now stuck wearing a SCRAM bracelet, Lindsay Lohan doesn't believe she's in need of rehab.

Incredibly, this is only the second most ridiculous thing we've heard a D-list celebrity utter this week!

In an interview with Life & Style, Scott Disick refers to himself as a "role model" and adds that he's the epitome of the American Dream. As we try to stifle laughter over these comments, check out Disick's comments for yourself:

On his reputation as a jerk: I don't mind being portrayed as the villain on TV, but nobody knows the real me. I'm a great guy. All the haters are just jealous, so they're trying to bring me down. I'm young, handsome, successful, wealthy. You could say I'm a role model -- I'm the American dream!

A True Role Model

On sort of being a douche: I may be a douche to some people, but I actually do run companies. I make a lot of money, and I'm more than capable of supporting myself. I run multiple companies in the vitamin world: QuickTrim, Rejuvacare, Monte Carlo Perpetual Tan.

On being a father: Having a baby has made me a completely different person. It's opened my eyes to the sense that there's something out there bigger than myself. That's why every day since Mason's birth I've worked on bettering myself.

Still, Disick has a long way to go until he reaches the levels of success that baby mama Kourtney Kardashian and quasi sister-in-law Kim Kardashian have attained. At a Svedka Vodka party this weekend, these two did what they do best:

Stand on a red carpet and pocket thousands of dollars. To wit...

Dancing with the Stars names its 10th champions tomorrow. Who will win it? Only three tandems are left vying for the Mirror Ball when they take the floor tonight.

It's now or never for Erin, Maks, Nicole, Derek, Evan and Anna. There are no cumulative scores, so any faltering tonight could be devastating, even to the favorite.

Below, we break down the dancers left standing on the final night of competition, their strengths and weaknesses, and their odds of bringing home the glory ...

Erin Andrews & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Why they'll win: Sex appeal. Chemistry. Being a hoot to watch. Unquestionably the most attractive and fun pair all season long, Erin and Maks have earned their place in the finals with performances that are technically rigorous as well.
Why they won't: This isn't to suggest the judges have it in for Erin, but they sort of do. Off-the-charts heat doesn't translate to higher scores - rarely they matched Nicole or Evan's totals. If they did tonight, it would be a surprise. A hot surprise.
Odds: 20-1

  • Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy Image
  • Perfection For Evan

Can either Erin or Evan pull a huge upset in this week's finals?

Evan Lysacek & Anna Trebunskaya
Why they'll win: Evan and Anna served notice with last week's dances that this far from over. Nicole may be the favorite, but Evan has as many perfect 30s (two) as she does, and if they end up all square at the end of tonight, he may have a shot.
Why they won't: Nicole is still better ... which is a little unfair, given that she dances for a living, but such is life. Evan needs to be nearly flawless and get some help.
Odds: 5-1

Nicole Scherzinger & Derek Hough
Why they'll win: Woman's got skills. Those new Pussycat Dolls have big shoes to fill. Popular and proficient, Nicole has the whole package and should get it done. And partnering with Derek Hough should help with the female audience, as well.
Why they won't: Her fan base could assume she has it wrapped up and not vote. It's all about turnout as much as talent. Or she has a rare off night, which we doubt.
Odds: 3-2

Make no mistake, this title is Nicole's to lose.

Who do you want to win Dancing with the Stars?

Looks like Lindsay Lohan is going back to her ankle monitor roots!

The train wreck had good reason to be scared of court today, as she was ordered to refrain from drinking or drugs, no excuses. If she drinks or does drugs? Jail time.

Judge Marsha Revel laid down the law in Beverly Hills court, instructing Lindsay that to remain free on bail, she can't drink alcohol and must wear a SCRAM device.

In addition to the SCRAM (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) bracelet, she must submit to random drug tests and attend all alcohol education classes.

She has to actually show up once a week this time, too.

Metal Detector Chic

Lindsay Lohan is ordered through a metal detector at the courthouse. Hopefully she left her crack pipe in the car. Hopefully she parties on the SCRAM like in '07, too.

Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, began to object to the conditions, but the judge said she would state out loud all the reasons why they were appropriate.

Holley then backed off and accepted the conditions.

The judge also indicated that Lindsay must stay in the L.A. area - which could threaten her new porn star role in a movie in Texas. Basically, Revel said tough luck.

Again, these are conditions imposed by the judge that must be met in order for Lindsay to remain free on bail after skipping her probation hearing last Thursday.

That hearing, to establish whether she violated the terms of her probation and if she will face consequences, has been rescheduled for July 6. Can she stay clean?!

We give it a few hours until she tries to hacksaw that piece off at least. Girl wakes up with cravings and has to satisfy them, hard and fast. This is gonna be rough.

What do you think? Can she stay clean? Will she go to jail? And would that be good for the train wreck? Tell us: Lindsay Lohan belongs in ...
