- Her Gagness, Lady Gaga covers the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar and explains that her face prosthetics, or “bones” — which, for the record, have “always been inside” of her — are a form of artistic expression, not an open invitation to modify your body: ”I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification.” Wait a second…pop stars have plastic surgery? When did this start? Oh right. [Harper's Bazaar]

- Someone somewhere told Elle UK that Balmain will be naming a new designer in the next few days, but that name will most likely be followed by a question mark. This source says: ‘They’re going to choose someone unknown. Christophe [Decarnin] was an unknown when he came to Balmain, and the owners want to support lesser-known design talent.’ Support and then drive them insane…allegedly. [Elle UK]
- Supermodel Doutzen Kroes is trading in her stilettoes for some Moon boots. The Dutch beauty has signed on to be part of Space Expedition Curacao, a sort of galactic travel agency where ordinary citizens — or at least supermodels – can observe the Earth from space. Doutzen was one of a select fifteen passengers invited on the initial launch meaning she will be the first person to catwalk in space. Eat your still-beating heart out, Neil Armstrong. [Modelina]
- As if we needed further reminder that Beyoncé basically runs shit, the superstar will sport a crown of epic proportions for her new video — in addition to maybe-possibly-could-be some Givenchy HC. [Stylite]
Noted news publication Supermarket also-ran, Star Magazine is “reporting” that Kate Middleton’s wedding dress might have to be built for two. Following pressure to “produce an heir,” Prince William and Kate may have started knocking the royal boots before their stroll down the aisle. And if the mag is to be believed — which it clearly isn’t — the Queen Mum could care less since she all she wants is to hear the pitter-patter of little feet again…just as long as those little feet pitter and patter far away in some other part of Buckingham Palace.
