As if his unrequited, unsolicited support for Tiger Woods weren't strange enough, Mel Gibson tried (in vain) to defend his 2006 meltdown again this week.

Mel's blatant anti-semitic rampage at the Malibu police station after his arrest for drunk driving became one of the top celebrity scandals of the decade.

But, while promoting his new movie, Edge of Darkness, Gibson said that people should just let it go. Which they might if he didn't keep downplaying it.

"It’s said that I went into a rant, but I think it went on for about five words," he said. "I was drunk. It just turned into a big thing. I apologized - not once, three times. So what’s the problem? It’s four years ago. Do I need to apologize again?”

For the record, it was most definitely a rant.

"F--king Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world" is more than five words. The many times he called police officers "motherf*%ker" and "sugar t!ts" while proclaiming "I own Malibu" and trying to break $h!t also add up.

This isn't to say Mel doesn't deserve forgiveness. Sure he does. But we don't get the feeling he thinks he was wrong in the first place, which might help.

Similar to the "he's human" defense of Tiger, who slept with scads of women he wasn't married to, the "I was drunk" defense doesn't cut it here, Mel.

Amazingly, he should consider taking a page from the Michael Vick school of PR and profusely apologize, sincerely, until people simply get tired of it.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart would have turned 254 years old today if he were alive.

The Austrian composer is responsible for over 600 pieces and is often cited as an archetypal example of the Classical style of music.

As Mozart's career went on, he grew to specialize in chromatic harmony that was rare for his era. In 1769, he was honored as the concertmaster of the archbishop and was knighted by the pope in Rome. Not even Taylor Swift has accomplished those achievements!

A father of six, Mozart wrote one of his masterpieces, "Die Zauberflöte," in the last year of his life. He passed away from mercury poisoning (look out, Jeremy Piven!) while being treated for syphilis.

Send in your posthumous birthday wishes today!

Kelly Osbourne is just teeing off on celebrities this week. Monday, she squared off with Tila Tequila, who she likened to a fart: amusing, but ultimately disgusting.

Her latest target? Heidi Montag.

After seeing what The Hills star did to herself with all that plastic surgery, Kelly decided to throw her two cents in, unsolicited of course, about Heidi's new look.

While Osbourne may be annoying and begging for attention herself by chiming in, she's certainly not wrong when it comes to her assessment of Montag ...

"She was so pretty before. Now she looks like a Barbie doll. I feel sorry for Heidi, she's obviously insecure. It's the surgeon who should be ashamed - he should be struck off for giving her so much work when she clearly didn't need it."

We have to say, the idea that Heidi had countless cosmetic surgeries because she is unhappy may be only half the story. It was also a key career move!

That's according to the surgeon who ransacked Heidi Montag's face. He even admits he personally could never endure the work Heidi wanted to have done.

Neither could we. How many other 23-year-olds do you know who transform like she has? You couldn't pick old Heidi out of a police lineup at this point.

The former Mr. Britney Spears, a.k.a. Kevin Federline, opened up to Access Hollywood about his battle with depression, weight gain and his world-famous ex.

K-Fed will next a contestant on VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp. He says rumors that he gained weight to secure a spot on the weight loss show are false.

“They called me and they asked me if I wanted to do it and I had 24 hours to decide because the show started taping the day after that weekend,” he said.

“It just couldn’t have come at a better time.”

Married to Britney Spears for two years, Kevin said depression played a part in his overeating. “Once you're depressed, you don’t feel like doing anything," he said.

"You’re kind of discouraged about yourself and then the weight gain too, or that makes me more depressed. I mean, it’s a combination of all of those things.”

K-OVERFED is actually looking slimmer these days.

Kevin admitted that his divorce from Spears in 2006 played a part in his depression. Asked if he is at a place where he can be friends with Britney, he said yes.

“Yeah, I mean, I think as time goes on, it keeps getting better and better and better. I mean, I’m really happy the way that my life is going right now, I really am. I think, you know, I have come a long way. All of us have. The whole family."

“It’s gotten so much better from where we were,” he added. “I’m in the best possible scenario right now and I’m really happy for her. I’m very happy for her.”

Kevin Federline also commented that he can see himself getting married again in the future, and there could be more kids in his future ... maybe.

“I could see that,” he said. "I’ll let the young ones grow up first and we’ll see.”

Britney Spears is donating an old dress to Haiti relief efforts.

While that doesn't sound impressive, it might when you consider that it's the shimmery silver Versace dress she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in 2008.

Rihanna in Vogue

It's being auctioned off, with proceeds to be donated to a charity whose name is not yet known. We missed her at the Hope For Haiti telethon, but go Britney!

Britney, who loves her body in that (or any) dress, not the only star who’s opening her up her wallet - or closet - to benefit the earthquake-stricken country.

Kate Bosworth, for one, is putting a dress up for grabs at auction to benefit OxFam International’s Haiti Relief Program through Charitybuzz.

This Britney Spears dress could be yours for a good price and cause.

Susan Sarandon is getting in on the auction action by donating the size-6 Dolce & Gabanna LBD she wore to the 15th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

Artists for Peace and Justice are helping Meryl Streep, Josh Brolin, Gerard Butler, Amy Poehler, and Olivia Wilde donate their Golden Globe Awards fashion.

Lady Gaga, meanwhile, may be holding onto her outrageous costumes, but she's selling personalized Lady Gaga Haiti Relief T-shirts on her official website.

To spread the news, the new music icon Tweeted, “Buy Gaga merch today. 100% of profit goes to earthquake relief. Little Monsters save the world today!”

Soon after the calendar turned to 2010, Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves welcomed their second child into the world. It should be a time for celebration, right?

Wrong, says Camila's mother.

According to unreliable sources at The National Enquirer, Multo Abrigado is pressuring Alves to force the actor into marriage or a financial arrangement that will guarantee the future well-being of her kids.

"Camila's mother is very traditional, and she's worried that since they are not married, Matthew could leave her daughter high and dry with two kids if he falls out of love with her," a source said, making the first ever comparison between McConaughey and Levi Johnston.

  • Camila and Levi

How did the often-shirtless hunk react when Alves followed through on her mother's advice? He "exploded," the insider claims:

"He said, 'I'll always take care of our babies - and you!'"

Since becoming a mother, Alves has put her modeling career on hold. Little Levi McConaughey is 18 months old, while daughter Vida was born on January 3.

While Camila doesn't know what to do next, her mother won't take her eye off the fiscal ball. Concludes the anonymous source:

"Now Multo is pressuring Cam to get Matthew to commit to a legal agreement. She said, 'He wanted you to carry his babies - he ought to take real responsibility.'"

He also ought to take that shirt off in the photo above. Come on, Matthew!

Many celebrities resort to plastic surgery to enhance their looks.

Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, alumni of The Hills, are not among them, as both are committed to staying beautiful naturally. This interview with them is from late last year, but is still topical in light of the recent Heidi Montag plastic surgery debacle.

“I think it’s a personal thing,” Whitney, now star of The City, tells me. “They feel like it’s necessary and it’s going to make them feel more confident."

If that's what they believe, "then more power to them," she adds.

Lauren Conrad says the need for plastic surgery stems from fame.

Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad are all-natural (and all-cute)!

“It’s hard because you’re in that position where you’re being criticized for everything,” LC, whose novel L.A. Candy is getting the silver screen treatment.

“Do you ignore it, and try to be beautiful on your own and be happy with the way you look? or do you listen to the criticism. They put them on this platform, and they tear them apart and then they criticize them even more for changing themselves."

"I think you just try and be confident with the way you are.”

Although Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad don’t admit to enhancing their looks through surgery, that doesn't mean they don't make the best of their natural features.

Whitney says that among her go-to beauty products are Fresh Black Tea eye cream, and she also wears Trish McEvoy #3 perfume, Snowdrop and Crystal Flowers.

LC, who says her eyes look “round and boyish,” swears by Mark’s Get In Line liquid eyeliner. For scents, “I wear 15 different perfumes. Anything with a gardenia.”

Whitney Port laughs, “Oh, so does my mom.”

Finally, The Hollywood Gossip can respond to the thousands of daily letters we receive asking about Brooke Hogan's dating status:

The ultra talented singer is single.

Her rep has written in to Life & Style and confirmed Brooke's relationship with aspiring rapper Yannique Barker (aka. Stack$) is over.

"Brooke Hogan and Stack$ have split but remain friends. He was a big part of her life for a very long time, and she still cares about him and his family dearly. Brooke would like to thank her fans for their kind words and sensitivity during the breakup," the rep said.

The two got together last spring, as they were spotted strolling in Miami Beach. Stack$ also played a role on Brooke's reality show Brooke Knows Best, which, incredibly, has yet to be picked up for a new season.

May the best, most desperate man now win Hogan's affection. Good luck, everyone!
