Madonna Forgives Elton John; Tabloid Publishes Naked Prince Harry Photos; Lady Gaga Named Most Powerful

Looks like the feud between Elton John and Madonna may be over. Madonna dedicated the song "Masterpiece" to Elton during the final show of the European leg of her MDNA Tour. The feud between the two divas really heated up when Madge beat out Elton for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes. Since then, Elton has been lashing out at Madonna, calling her a "fairground stripper." Now we wait and see if Elton returns the favor. Maybe Elton will dedicate "The Bitch is Back" to Madonna.
U.K.'s The Sun is defending publishing naked photos of Prince Harry. The tabloid said it would have been "perverse" not to publish to photos of the naked royal that were taken in Las Vegas. The Sun published the photos despite warnings from the Royal Family's lawyers that it would be an invasion of Prince Harry's privacy. The country's Press Complaints Commission said it had received 850 complaints about the photos, but none from St. James' Palace. The paper ran the photos with the headline: "Heir It Is."
Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Lady Gaga? Forbes released its list of the World's 100 Most Powerful Women, with Angela Merkel, Germany's Chancellor, topping the list. Lady Gaga came in at No. 14, ahead of Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, Queen Elizabeth II, and Nancy Pelosi. Also making the list were: Beyonce Knowles (No. 32), Jennifer Lopez (No. 38), Shakira (No.40), Ellen DeGeneres (No. 47), Angelina Jolie (No. 66), Sofia Vergara (No. 75), and J.K. Rowling (No. 78).
After finally giving up the fight of defending allegations of doping, Lance Armstrong has been stripped of all seven of his Tour De France titles. Armstrong still denies doping but said "enough is enough." The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said it is also banning Armstrong from competitive cycling for life. Armstrong, who argues he's passed hundreds of blood and other tests, said he he does not accept the USADA's sanctions. Armstrong still has the support of sponsor Nike.
Looks like Randy Travis is trying to become the country Charlie Sheen. The singer was cited for assault after police said he was involved in a fight at a church parking lot in Texas. Police also claim Travis was "extremely intoxicated" during the altercation, which reportedly was over a girl. Earlier this month Travis was arrested for DWI after police said they found a naked and drunk Travis at the scene of a car crash. Travis is becoming a sad country song cliché.
Call it the Terminator curse. Edward Furlong, who starred in Terminator 2, was reportedly robbed on L.A.'s drug-infested Skid Row. Furlong told police he was robbed of his wallet when he asked a man for directions. We hate to speculate why Furlong was asking for directions on Skid Road. Nick Stahl, who played John Connor in Terminator 3, has been dealing with drug issues of his own recently.
