Did You Hear?

:: Boy George writes a blog questioning how “occasional” Lady Gaga’s admitted drug use really is. “As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous ‘occasional’ use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience,” he writes. Once again, Gaga manages to shock Boy George very easily. [EW Music Mix]

:: What will be the opening line of Justin Bieber’s autobiography? Buzzworthy gives a few guesses, but we’re betting it’s a shout-out to Usher. [MTV Buzzworthy]
