What’s the Buzz: Royal Family, Amanda Bynes, Lady Gaga
Royal Damage Control
Just a few weeks after Prince Harry’s naked party pictures from Vegas (how cliché) were published, the Royal Family is back with another round of damage control with the press’ invasion of Prince William and Kate’s privacy. While they vacationed in France at the Queen’s nephew, Lord Linley’s, chateau, paparazzi appear to have hid in the property’s bushes and taken photos of the couple sunbathing. Despite breaking French privacy laws, the French magazine Closer published the pictures without apology. BBC reports that the palace is currently proceeding with legal action. Many have raised concern of the poised and proper Duchess, as they can only help but to start drawing similarities between her and Diana, Princess of Wales, whose constant battle with the paparazzi ended with her deadly high-speed car chase with photographers.
Bynes Reunites With The Law
The time of Amanda Bynes being one of Hollywood’s sweethearts is officially over. Paparazzi recently spotted Bynes smoking what is presumably pot while sitting in her parked car. Just a few days after the photos were published, Bynes was also spotted getting into a minor fender bender. As if that wasn’t already the kicker, the 26-year-old actress was driving on a suspended license and has already been involved in two hit-and-runs. And of course, with a DUI already under her belt it should be safe to say we all know where this is headed: a 45-day stunt in jail Paris Hilton-style.
Going Gaga Over ‘Fame’ Perfume
This past Thursday, Lady Gaga held a launch for her new perfume, Fame, at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. Although the event was quite tame, the night was filled to the brim with strange musings. Gaga kicked the night off by “sleeping” in a massive bottle of perfume—clearly the giant egg left her wanting more. As she slumbered, guests were allowed to reach inside and touch her hand. After her “awakening,” a hairdresser reshaped her undercut and a tattoo artist inked an angel on the back of her head, right above her neck. Meanwhile, guests were instructed to wear either a mask or hat. This resulted in designer Alexander Wang looking like Hannibal and what Women’s Wear Daily reported as a woman supposedly dawning a dead cat as a hat.
