Olivia Wilde has learned the hard way not to criticize Justin Bieber, as her post to Twitter earlier this month imploring the Canadian pop star to “put your f—ing shirt on” earned her more than 17,000 angry responses from Bieber fans. “It’s pretty much the funniest thing that’s ever happened to me because my Twitter feed is now filled with the most hilarious abuse,” she says during a visit to the “Tonight” show with Jay Leno. “One of them was, ‘Are you a lesbian or are you too old?’ That’s great, because it’s a question I never asked myself before.” Wilde is making light of the threats to her safety, telling CNN, “I’m going to get attacked with acid. Someone’s going to throw acid in my face. If that happens, there are 35 million Beliebers that did it, so find them.”

Apparently getting divorced was the best thing to happen to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, at least according to director Adam Shankman, who is friends with both. Shankman tells Us Weekly that since the couple’s high-profile split last summer, the two are doing just swell. “They are incredibly happy,” Shankman says. “I’ve just been emailing with him. He’s coming back. He’s shooting [All You Need Is Kill] in London and seems as happy as a clam. I know he sees his daughter.” As for Holmes? “Katie seems really happy,” Shankman adds. “You just fight through all the noise. And it’s noisy!”

Taylor Swift may find herself with with fewer adoring fans once they find out their letters and cards to the country crooner have been ending up in the trash. Nashville resident Kaylee Francescan discovered a mass of Swift fan mail in a dumpster, she tells local station WKRN. “There were like hundreds of letters in there to Taylor Swift and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I didn’t know if they were stolen [or] discarded, so I threw them in a box,” she says. “And I’m like, ‘Somebody needs to let Taylor know.’ It did bother me [because] I know how much her fans mean to her.” A rep for the singer insists it was simply an error on the part of the mail sorter. “A small batch of mail that was supposed to be delivered to Taylor was accidentally put with letters headed for the recycling center,” the rep tells Us Weekly.

Lady Gaga is recovering from hip surgery in style. The singer reportedly tapped designer Ken Borochov for a custom 24-karat gold wheelchair, according to E! News. “I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair, but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the Chariot, a chair for for a queen,” Borochov says in a statement.

Hawaii’s state senate has passed the “Steven Tyler Act,” which gives celebrities the right to sue paparazzi over unwanted photos and videos taken of them, and the man for whom the act is named couldn’t be more thrilled. “[In Hawaii,] they are allowed in with their lenses and they get the most intimate of shots, which is what they are really looking for to make money. Not on my watch,” he tells Billboard. “Now at least Joe [Perry] and I can go to Maui and walk around naked in the back lawn and write some crazy songs.”
