Seinfeld not a fan of the Gaga

Lady Gaga may have millions of fans, but Jerry Seinfeld isn't one of them.

In a recent interview with WFAN radio, the comedian took the controversial singer to task for the June 10 baseball brouhaha in which she flipped the bird at the New York Mets game before moving from her front-row seats to an empty luxury box owned by Seinfeld.

"This woman is a jerk. I hate her. I can't believe they put her in my box, which I paid for," joked the 56-year-old Mets fan. "You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we're living in now?"

Drake goes platinum...in Canada

Call it home-field advantage: Early reports out of Canada reveal that Drake’s debut album, "Thank Me Later," has already gone platinum.

The Young Money/Cash Money signee - and arguably the most-hyped hip-hop artist in years - is dealing with lofty expectations for his first solo album since his astronomically successful mixtape, "So Far Gone," more or less set his career in motion.

Drake was expected to move somewhere between 425,000 and 475,000 units in the first week and those estimates were on target: the artist almost went gold, selling 462,989 copies of "Thank Me Later" in the U.S.
