Wednesday gossip roundup: You won’t believe what’s on Lady Gaga’s tour rider

Lady Gaga‘s list of dressing room requirements has leaked, and while there are more demanding celebrity singers out there — Mariah Carey comes to mind — she wouldn’t be Gaga without a few eyebrow-raising items. Gaga’s requests include lavender towels and hand soap as well as yellow, lavender and white roses and, according to correspondence obtained by Celebuzz, “a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair.”

During a recent visit to Howard Stern’s radio show, Russell Brand got the chance to criticize ex-wife Katy Perry for dating John Mayer, but he didn’t take it. “Doesn’t she know that he’s a worse womanizer than you?” Stern asked, to which Brand joked, “Worse or better, depending on how you view it.” But Stern’s prodding didn’t producer any naysaying. “So help me God, Howard Stern, I will not compromise my ex-wife’s vagina for the sake of ratings,” Brand declared. “That woman was perfect from top to bottom.” As for Brand’s own love life, “”I’m not dating anybody. Actually, I’d like a romance,” he says. “Not so much playing the field, just going through life, meditating, doing yoga, concentrating on this TV show and trying to find a nice wife.”

Chris Brown
may have to start his community service all over again now that a Los Angeles District Attorney is alleging the singer failed to provide “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he fulfilled his obligation, according to the Los Angeles Times. Brown was given 180 days of community service as part of his sentence for assaulting Rihanna in 2009, and he was granted permission to complete it in his home state of Virginia. But now D.A. Mary Murray claims there are “significant discrepancies” in the reports about his service, which she says are “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.” Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, is promising to fight back, though. “Apparently the district attorney’s office has completely lost their minds,” he tells the newspaper. “They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.”

Her engagement may be off and her time on “The X Factor” may be over, but Britney Spears still has something to look forward to: The singer is reportedly close to finalizing a deal to perform a series of concerts at a major Las Vegas hotel, according to E! News. “We are in deep negotiations and I’d be shocked if it didn’t happen,” Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, says. “Hoping to have a deal done very soon.”

Celebrity chef Guy Fieri didn’t have such a great time when he hit New Orleans for the Super Bowl. When Fieri was reportedly denied access to the VIP area at a pre-Bowl bash at Second Line Studio, “he threw a fit and was kicked out,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He caused a total scene. He didn’t have the right bracelet, and nobody in New Orleans knows who anyone is.”
