Gaga wears condom outfit to promote safe sex

Lady Gaga wore a 'latex condom inspired outfit' on 'Good Morning America' to promote 'safe sex'.

The pop star's fashion choices often come without explanations, but she offered a partly-bizarre, partly-innovative reason for her latest wacky outfit on 'GMA' Thursday.

Dressed in a nude-colored latex ensemble, the singer said, "today was a latex condom inspired outfit because we had to talk about safe sex."

The outfit related directly to her work as a spokesperson for MAC's Viva Glam campaign, which advocates for HIV/AIDS prevention.

During her interview, Gaga said she thinks her "little monsters" are supportive of her efforts.

"I know my fans very well and they think it's cool to be aware about sex, aware about the world and aware about things like HIV and AIDS and protecting themselves," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

The "Born This Way" songstress revealed that her mom taught her about safe sex at a young age.

Halle Berry has cut herself off from her family

Halle Berry's estranged half-sister has claimed that the actress has cut herself off from her family.

Halle, 44, who is currently in the middle of a custody battle with ex Gabriel Aubry over their daughter Nahla, has been accused of cutting off all ties with her African-American family by her half-sister Renee Berry, 51.

According to the Daily Mirror, Renee, a food service worker from Alabama, is desperate to reconnect with her famous sister, especially when she is going through such a difficult time in the courts.

Renee is the daughter of Halle's late African-American father Jerome and Edwina Taylor, who broke up with him shortly before he started dating the actress' mother Judith Hawkins.

Although Jerome and Judith split up when Halle was just four years old, Renee remained "very close" to Halle while they were growing up – despite cutting herself off from her father after the divorce.

"I'm sad to say it seems like she does not want anything to do with us. I have not spoken to her in about five years," the Daily Mail quoted Renee as saying.

"I tried to contact her through her website, to congratulate her on her Oscar, but no one got back to me.

"We would love to meet Nahla. We are desperate to understand why Halle is so upset, why she feels she cannot be with us," she stated.

Renee claims Halle was angry with her when she made a public plea to visit Jerome when he was dying from Parkinson's disease.

Lady Gaga is on a 'drunk diet'

Pop diva Lady Gaga has sparked more controversy saying that she stays slim by following a "drunk diet".

The 'Paparazzi' hitmaker, who has always maintained a slim figure, insisted she would never cut out alcohol in a bid to lose weight.

The 24-year-old singer admitted that her slender frame is down to exercise and her boyfriend Luc Carl's "drunk diet", which saw him lose 40 pounds while still partying hard, reported Contactmusic.

"I am on the drunk diet. I live my life as I want to, and creatively. I like to drink whiskey and stuff while I am working," she said.

Even though she is drunk, Gaga never misses out on her work-out and yoga sessions.

"The deal is, I've got to work out every day, and I work out hungover if I am hungover. And it's about the cross-training and keeping yourself inspired. I have to say, I do a ton of yoga," said Gaga.

Carl is currently working on a book entitled 'The Drunk Diet', about his non-traditional weight loss method.

Human breast milk ice cream on sale?

A shop in London is selling ice cream containing human breast milk. The shop in Covent Garden used milk donated by a UK mom to make the "totally natural" treat.

According to UK website Parentdish, Victoria Hiley, 35, a mother of one from Leeds in northern England, has already donated a liter of her breast milk to Icecreamists parlor for the dish it calls Baby Gaga.

"What's the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?" Fox News quoted Hiley as saying, who responded to an advert for milk suppliers on another parenting website, Mumsnet.

"What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother's milk in an ice cream?"

The new parlor pays 15 pounds (24 dollars) for every 10 ounces of milk and has already had 15 mothers become donors. Each lactating woman undergoes the same health checks used by the UK's National Health Service to screen blood donors.

Matt O'Connor, 44, who runs Icecreamists, makes the dish by blending the breast milk with Madagascan vanilla pods and lemon zest.

"No-one's done anything interesting with ice cream in the last hundred years," he said.

"Some people will hear about it and go, 'yuck,' but actually it's pure, organic, free-range and totally natural," he added.

When Pamela Anderson drank dirty water

Pamela Anderson drank a glass of filthy water on US television to show how a cheap new filter can make water safe for drinking.

Anderson was promoting charity organisation Waves For Water on the Ellen DeGeneres Show when she agreed to demonstrate to the host how new technology turns filthy liquid into drinking water in the world's poorest regions.

"This is a crude, simple thing; it's based on dialysis - if you can clean blood, you can clean water... It's drinkable; I'm gonna drink it right now," dailystar.co.uk quoted her as saying.

"I took them (the filter bags) to India when I went to India and did a demonstration there and I gave it to a bunch of people and then they take it to different places and we just keep on kinda spreading it around... the slums of Brazil, my friends are there right now," she added.
