Matthew Perry back in rehab

Former “Friends” star Matthew Perry is planning a return trip to rehab, though it’s more of a preemptive step than a result of a relapse, according to People magazine. “I’m making plans to go away for a month to focus on my sobriety and to continue my life in recovery,” Perry says in a statement to the magazine. “Please enjoy making fun of me on the World Wide Web.”

Gaga a single Lady once more

Lady Gaga and boyfriend Luc Carl have called it quits, she discloses to Graham Norton. “No, I don’t have a boyfriend and haven’t been on any dates recently,” the singer says during an interview. Though Carl had been accompanying her on her recent tour, the stress of the road and Gaga’s hectic schedule reportedly became too much. But keeping busy is normal for the pop star: “At a certain point, exhaustion becomes a state of being. And mentally, I have to be strong and overcome it. It’s like a cloud, a fog really, that hovers over me,” she told V magazine.

Will just doesn’t understand

Will Ferrell is flummoxed by Paramount Pictures’ reluctance to green-light a sequel to “Anchorman,” he tells Popeater. “I don’t understand how they conduct their business,” he says. “Once again they don’t comment either way, but it’s not like it’s coming from us unsolicited. We just keep getting asked so many times about it that we have to comment. We try to explain there’s so much interest in a sequel, we’re not making this up!”
