Gaga: The love from my fans is overwhelming

Between her album release, the magazine profiles and the performances, it isn’t surprising that Lady Gaga doesn’t get a lot of sleep.

“Showbiz Tonight” caught up with the superstar singer after she pulled a round-the-clock shift preparing for Friday morning’s concert on “Good Morning America,” and the Mother Monster explained that the lack of shut-eye doesn’t faze her.

“[My fans] stay up for me all the time so I stay up for them all the time,” Gaga told “Showbiz Tonight’s” Jason Carroll.

Tantalizing tidbits from 'True Blood's' season 4 premiere

The fourth season of HBO’s “True Blood” kicks off on June 26 and if the premiere’s synopsis is to be believed, we’ll jump right back into season 3’s established storylines and explore new avenues with a host of new characters.

Unless you’ve been hibernating in a coffin during the show’s hiatus, you know that some of the new characters are familiar faces. I’m particularly excited about “Dexter’s” love-to-hate-her Courtney Ford and Gary Cole from “Office Space” filling the roles of Portia Bellefleur and Earl Stackhouse, respectively.

We can also look forward to a new relationship for Sam, a new friend for Tara and plenty of Alcide, who will hopefully wear as little clothing as premium cable will allow.

Zach Braff is scrubbing up for a splashy new movie role. The actor has just been cast in the upcoming "Wizard of Oz" prequel "Oz: The Great and Powerful."

According to Deadline, Braff will play Frank, the "loyal but underappreciated" assistant to Oz (James Franco).

In the film, Oz is a charismatic circus magician who is mistaken for a wizard after his balloon goes off course and touches ground in a land somewhere over the rainbow. Believing he has powers, the townsfolk ask Oz to help them defeat the Wicked Witch.

Jon Hamm to direct 'Mad Men' premiere

Don Draper just got himself a new job! "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm has revealed that he is getting ready to go behind the camera and direct the season 5 premiere of the hit AMC series.

“The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen,” he tells TVLine.

Hamm was inspired to try his hand at helming the show after seeing co-star John Slattery direct an episode. “I watched Slattery do it—and he handled it with such grace and ability and ease—I figured if he can do it, s—, I can do it too," he says.

Case closed on Mariah Carey's Guinness controversy

The investigation into allegations that Mariah Carey was drinking alcohol in the hospital following the recent birth of her twins has been closed, her rep confirmed to CNN.

"Disturbing that an anonymous caller would call child protective services but they legally have to follow up," said Carey's spokesperson, Cindi Berger. "What an utter waste of tax payers dollars. Yes, the case is closed."

Carey's husband Nick Cannon said earlier that the complaint to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services may have been triggered by a nurse's suggestion that a small amount of dark beer could help Carey's breastfeeding. A social worker later visited Carey in the hospital.

'Bachelorette' castoff couldn't watch his exit

Tim McCormack was originally supposed to be a potential suitor on "The Bachelorette" in 2010, but work commitments prevented him from seeking Ali Fedotowsky's heart. He got a second chance on the show this year, but his run for Ashley Hebert's hand in marriage ended in a drunken stupor.

The 35-year-old liquor distributor was the unfortunate star of Monday's premiere, showing up at the manor inebriated. It only got worse from there, as McCormack got into it with Jeff Medolla, the suitor who wore a mask to the opening cocktail party. Eventually, McCormack passed out in the backyard, leading to his ejection from the show.

"I started to watch the show Monday night, and it was just stomach-turning," McCormack said. "I couldn't sit through the whole show. It's disgusting how it all transpired."
