Thursday gossip roundup: Lady Gaga breaks up with Taylor Kinney

Lady Gaga seen leaving her hotel on November 15, 2011 in London, England.

Lady Gaga and boyfriend Taylor Kinney have reportedly called it quits, with the culprit being the singer’s hectic schedule, according to Us Weekly. “She will be touring nonstop until next year and has found she can’t have a relationship at the same time,” a source says of Gaga, who is about to embark on a 110-stop tour. “There’s just no room for anything else. Her work is all-consuming.” Of course, to hear the source tell it, the relationship might not have lasted much longer on its own, anyway. “Taylor was all about himself, a typical actor, and didn’t completely get Gaga,” the source adds.

Ashton Kutcher is facing criticism for a new Popchips ad that many feel is racist, according to E! News. In the online video, Kutcher appears as numerous ridiculous characters, including Raj, a brown-faced Bollywood producer with a thick Indian accent. (Kutcher also appears as a character sending up Karl Lagerfeld that could be construed as homophobic.) Overwhelmingly negative responses to the advertisement prompted Popchips to remove it from YouTube and Facebook a day after it was released. “The new Popchips worldwide dating video and ad campaign featuring four characters was created to provoke a few laughs and was never intended to stereotype or offend anyone,” a company rep said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter.

A recent rushed visit to a hairdresser friend left Cameron Diaz with much shorter locks than expected — and tears in her eyes. “I started crying. I felt so vulnerable. For a woman to all of a sudden have no hair — oh my God,” she tells Jay Leno during an interview. “There was a little misunderstanding. I said I just want a little bit cut off.” But a bit quickly turned into a bob, which turned traumatic for all involved. “”She started crying. I started crying. A couple other people started crying. I ended up writing her a few e-mails over the next few days assuring her I was OK,” Diaz says.

After Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt celebrated their engagement with a trip to the Galapagos Islands, it was clearly time for something just for the kids. So the family of six, in the U.K. to start work on Jolie’s next film, headed to the Legoland amusement park this week, according to Us Weekly. The park is apparently high on the list of destinations for the globetrotting family — it’s the fifth time they’ve visited.

“Glee” star Amber Riley‘s red carpet fainting spell earlier this week has her on the defensive about her personal life — including whether or not she’s expecting. “Let me stop the rumor mill right now. I’m not pregnant. Yes, I’m black but I don’t have diabetes, I don’t starve myself to fit clothes; I buy clothes to fit me not vice versa,” Riley posted to Twitter in response to the rumors that sprouted up overnight after her episode. “I did get a great laugh this morning reading all the BS, though.”

Miley Cyrus added a fourth dog to her pet roster after finding a Rottweiler-Beagle mix abandoned outside a shopping center, she revealed on Twitter. “He was left in a box in front of Wal-mart,” Cyrus posted. “I don’t understand how people can be so cruel. That’s why we named him Happy.” Cyrus spent the rest of the day posting photos of Happy enjoying his new environment.
