Gossip: Madonna joins Instagram
Madonna‘s foray into photo-sharing may be short-lived if she doesn’t clean up her act. The singer recently joined Instagram, collecting more than 150,000 followers while posting provocative photos of herself as well as images of flowers, horses and artist Frida Kahlo. But she’s also posted a warning she apparently received from the folks at Instagram about reviewing the site’s community guidelines. “We value these guidelines and believe that they will help keep Instagram a safe and fun place for everyone,” the message reads. “It is important to not that continuing to violate them may result in a disabled account or discontinued access to Instagram without warning.”
Taylor Swift doesn’t want to be a hypocrite, so she’s fine with any of her more musically inclined ex-boyfriends penning tunes about their relationship with the pop-country crooner. “If I’m going to write songs about my exes, they can write songs about me,” she tells InStyle UK. “That’s how it works. I’m not going to complain about it. I’m not going to sit there and say, ‘I”m the only one who can write songs about this relationship.’ It’s fair game.”
More potential bad news for Lindsay Lohan in her ongoing battle with the Los Angeles legal system: The troubled actress’ former assistant, Gavin Doyle, has been subpoenaed by the L.A. Attorney’s Office to testify in connection with Lohan’s probation violation trial, according to E! News. Lohan had told police that Doyle was behind the wheel when her Porsche collided with a truck last year, but Doyle has reportedly since revealed that Lohan herself was driving. Her next hearing is set for March 1.
Don’t expect too many fireworks in the split between Diane Lane and Josh Brolin. While the couple is divorcing after nine years of marriage, sources says that it’s “amicable” and “a mutual decision,” according to TMZ. “It’s not ugly, it’s just over.” In the divorce filing filed Feb. 15 in Los Angeles, Lane reportedly cites irreconcilable differences for the breakdown of their marriage and is looking to restore her name. While she continued to work under the screen name Diane Lane, she apparently legally changed her name to Diane Lane Brolin during their marriage.
Steven Tyler estimates that he has probably snorted $5 million or $6 million worth of cocaine during his drug-abusing days, which is a far cry from his estimate of $20 million in his 2011 memoir. “But it doesn’t matter,” he tells Australia’s “60 Minutes” during an interview. “You also could say I snorted half of Peru, but it doesn’t matter. You know, it’s what we did.”
