Did Kate Middleton accidentally let the cat out of the bag when it comes to whether she and Prince William are having a boy or a girl? During a public appearance this week, Middleton was given a teddy bear as a gift and said, “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d…” before cutting herself off, according to the Telegraph. Attendee Sandra Cook, who was standing beside Middleton, asked her, “You were going to say daughter, weren’t you?” to which Middleton reportedly replied, “No, I don’t know.” Cook says that when she pressed the Duchess of Cambridge further, she received a firm “We’re not telling” in response.

Taylor Swift is making some powerful enemies. In response to Amy Poehler and Tina Fey‘s joke at Swift’s expense at January’s Golden Globes ceremony. “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift tells Vanity Fair. “She said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’” While Fey expressed surprise at Swift’s annoyance, Poehler has a response of her own: “Aw, I feel bad if she was upset,” Poehler tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”

Lady Gaga‘s fans are continuing the singer’s feud with Madonna whether she wants them to or not, this time even accusing the “Material Girl” singer of helping the spread of AIDS. In a post on the Gaga fan blog Little Monster Artpop, a Gaga fan criticizes the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for picking Madonna to present an award to Anderson Cooper at their awards ceremony next week. “Back in the 1980s, she encouraged gay men to have unprotected sex,” read the post, which was removed shortly after garnering media attention. “While she certainly didn’t start the disease, she and her lack of morals helped it spread. The post’s author vowed to “strike back” in an unspecified manner if GLAAD did not choose another presenter.

James Franco is willing to admit he’s at least partially responsible for any speculation about whether he’s gay or straight. “One of the things that’s very much part of my public image is the question of my sexuality,” he tells Attitude magazine. “It’s not something that bothers me in the slightest. It hasn’t gone away, and I get asked about it from all sides. It’s partly my doing and partly not my doing.” From the roles he chooses to his directing efforts, homosexuality has been a popular topic for Franco. But what he’s really interested in is a high-profile actor coming out of the closet. “I think that the people I have known who are performers who haven’t publicly come out didn’t because they’re afraid it’ll hurt their careers,” he says. “And they’re afraid they won’t be able to play straight roles anymore. If there’s somebody that was well-respected and very secure with their career, I could see it happening in a very positive way.”

MTV has released its extensive “Hottest MCs” list, and Kanye West is not pleased to find himself sitting at the No. 7 spot. “I feel like for them to put me at No. 7, they had to bring up things they didn’t like,” he says during a call into New York’s Hot 97 radio station. “What happens with these type of things and the people that review it, when I come in and I have the pink polo and the backpack, I’m checking all the boxes of that a Tribe Called Quest era and all that, so they want to champion it. They don’t like Givenchy Kanye. They don’t like Kanye in a kilt, they don’t like Kanye in a relationship.”
