M.I.A. thinks Oprah gave her the cold shoulder

Outspoken rapper M.I.A. doesn’t save her controversial words just for her music. In a new interview with Time Out London, the British-born star lashes out at Oprah Winfrey and Lady Gaga.

M.I.A. claims that Winfrey, 56, was nothing like her warm-and-fuzzy TV persona when they encountered each other at the Metropolitan Ball at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in May.

“Oprah seemed like she was giving me the cold shoulder,” says M.I.A., 35. “She was with Iman [Bowie]. Iman was always dancing with me, hugging and kissing me, but Oprah seemed really [expletive]  off with me.”

Drew Barrymore: Phone sex can be funny

Count Drew Barrymore as another celeb who isn’t enamored with technology.

The star of the upcoming romantic comedy “Going the Distance” admitted to Nylon magazine that she just doesn’t think technology has made staying in touch any easier.

“Ironically, with all this, ‘We’re now more connected than ever with technology,’ I don’t think we’ve ever been farther apart,” Barrymore said in the magazine’s August issue. “I think it’s bull[expletive]. Everyone feels more connected but they’re weirdly disconnected.”

Diablo Cody welcomes baby boy

A congratulations is in order for new mom Diablo Cody.

The Oscar-winning screenwriter, who also confirmed her pregnancy on Twitter, recently tweeted the news of her newborn son's arrival.

“We had our boy early this morning!” Cody reported Tuesday, July 27. The baby, Marcello Daniel Maurio, is the first child for both Cody, 32, and her husband Daniel Maurio.

The baby boy weighed in at “7lbs, 2 oz," Cody said, also noting that he's "lightly mustachioed."

Back in April, Cody announced she was indeed pregnant by tweeting, “Thanks for the congrats on my fetus. No secrets here; just thought it would be fun to see how big I could get before someone noticed.”

Barker, who hosted the series from 1972 to 2009, recently told TMZ that Carey “does the show differently than I did…I tried to make the show really exciting, and he doesn't do that. He just plays the games."

But perhaps fearing he took too much of a gamble with his controversial comment, Barker has since had a change of heart.

He may have retired as the Old Spice guy, but Isaiah Mustafa is still enjoying the sweet smell of success.

Besides filming a guest spot on NBC’s “Chuck” and appearing in Tyler Perry’s upcoming "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf," the 36-year-old actor and former NFL player has landed a role in the new Jennifer Aniston comedy “Horrible Bosses," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It's a smaller role, but who wouldn't want to be in one of these funny, irreverent comedies?” Mustafa said of the movie, which also stars Jason Bateman. “I'm playing a cop because I play these authoritative characters well. I don't know exactly who I'm in the scene with - maybe Jennifer Aniston!”
