The Word: Oh hey there, Gwyneth Paltrow’s butt
Does being People’s Most Beautiful Woman give you license to ditch your undies on a night out? Gwyneth Paltrow apparently thinks so — she chose this see-through stunner for Wednesday’s Hollywood premiere of “Iron Man 3,” giving onlookers a front-row seat to her back seat.
Bieber? On drugs? Say it isn’t so!
Justin Bieber’s European tour hit another snag Wednesday night in Stockholm when police raided his tour bus, reportedly discovering a small amount of drugs and a stun gun, according to the Associated Press. A police officer working crowd control outside the bus noticed a suspicious smell and ordered the raid. The substance found aboard is said to be marijuana and has been sent to a lab for testing. Bieber had vacated the bus half an hour prior to the raid to take the stage at the Globe Arena, and the bus was empty at the time of the search. “No one was cited or arrested,” a source says. “There were no violations.” Bieber himself doesn’t appear to be letting the news get to him. “Some of the rumors about me, where do people even get this stuff?” he tweeted upon arrival in Finland Thursday morning. “Whatever. Back to the music.”
Deschanel get an apology
The closed captioning company that erroneously reported that the Boston Marathon bombing suspect still on the loose last week was named Zooey Deschanel has officially apologized to the “New Girl” actress, People.com writes. During Friday’s hunt for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the closed captioning that appeared on Dallas-Fort Worth’s Fox 4 read “He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.” Upon seeing the snafu for herself, Deschanel took to Twitter to write “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
La Toya hears MJ’s toe-tapping
La Toya Jackson swears that she can still hear her late brother Michael around her house — tap dancing, specifically. “Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours,” the former “Celebrity Apprentice” star told Good Day New York. “We go up there and no one’s up there — just tap dancing. And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time … It’s weird!”
Hmm. I don’t know if I trust La Toya’s hearing — after all, she must not have heard us when we warned her against more plastic surgery.
Real Housewife trades up (or down, number-wise)
Sonja Morgan, one of the tipsiest divas the “Real Housewives of New York” has ever seen, is dating a 23-year-old “real estate developer” (because what real estate mogul is 23?), In Touch Weekly writes. Morgan is 49, which means their age gap is the span of my entire life. Normally, I’d be all like “Get it, girl!” but Morgan’s former husband — who she divorced in 2008 — is 82 years old. 82! After one too many nights next to a pair of wrinkly testicles, I guess she wanted two that haven’t dropped yet.

My son didn’t want to make his bed. I said, “you make my bed, and I’ll make yours.” He did it. I felt like Bugs Bunny. #sucka

The best thing about being not overly attractive, is that, as you age, you merely become less not overly attractive.
