Gaga's sorry she called Madonna comparisons 'retarded'

Mother Monster Lady Gaga made a faux paw when she let the “R” word slip during an interview with NME magazine.

The 25-year-old was firing back at accusations that her song “Born This Way” is a rip-off of Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” saying, “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? That’s retarded.”

That's not all:

James Frey returning to 'Oprah'

Before Oprah Winfrey leaves daytime TV, she's bringing back one of her most infamous guests: controversial writer James Frey. CNN has confirmed that Frey will appear on Winfrey's show sometime in May.

Winfrey helped to make Frey a best-seller when she endorsed his memoir "A Million Little Pieces," but after learning that some of the content was fabricated, the 57-year-old host had Frey join her on the show once more in 2006 for an interesting - and uncomfortable - interview.

That may all be water under the bridge now, though - a source reportedly told the New York Post that Winfrey has apologized for doling out such a tongue-lashing.

Chris Colfer pens pilot for Disney Channel

Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer is a man of many talents. Besides acting and singing on "Glee," he's just written a new TV pilot for the Disney Channel.

Deadline reports that Colfer has penned the script for "The Little Leftover Witch," which is based on Florence Laughlin's children's book about Felina, a witch who is taken in by the Doon family after her broomstick gets busted.

This isn't Colfer's first writing gig, however.

Who won the godparent sweepstakes on 'Modern Family'?

Who won the godparent sweepstakes on 'Modern Family'?

Wednesday night's episode of "Modern Family" was a nice example of the show at its best. I can't say that it was one of my favorites of the season, but it was solidly scripted, with a story that (mostly) revolved around Cam and Mitchell's decision as to who should be Lily's guardians if anything happened to them.

The most obvious choice were the Dunphys, with three kids of their own. Unfortunately for Phil and Claire, this decision happened to coincide with their worst parenting day ever, starting with a disastrous scene involving fire and Alex getting trapped in the garage, in front of Cam and Mitchell. Phil's cries of, "Son of Jor-El! Everybody stay calm!" didn't help matters.

Not only did Claire try to sneak Luke into therapy (something Phil found out about pretty quickly, before it was pointed out that Phil and Luke have a little too much in common), but they ended up accidentally leaving him in the parking lot after his session. If that wasn't enough, Haley and Alex had to be picked up from jail after a moment of delinquent sisterly bonding.

Lady Gaga digs Weird Al parody

File this one under Most Unusual Celebrity Feuds: Weird Al Yankovic publicly aired his frustration with Lady Gaga recently after the superstar seemingly dissed his song parody of her hit "Born This Way."

In a post on his blog yesterday, Yankovic said he had planned to use his Gaga tribute "Perform This Way" as the lead single and video for his upcoming album but wanted to get her permission first.

"I had my manager contact Lady Gaga’s manager to see if she would OK the parody," he said. "We eventually got a response from the Gaga camp: She would need to 'hear it' before she would approve it."
