The Voice judge insists he and the "Over You" singer's marriage is still going strong amid reports they are headed for a "$40 million divorce."

The 37-year-old "Boys' Round Here" hitmaker tweeted on Friday night, "I just read back to back NEW stories that @mirandalambert and I are having a baby, divorcing, cheating and feuding with @cher. Must be true!" He jokingly added, "If it costs 40 million dollars to get a divorce then how will we ever afford it?!!! We had that money set aside for health care!!!"

The couple tied the knot in 2011 and Blake previously claimed he "loved" the constant speculation about the state of their relationship: "I honestly do love it. I just know, to that kind of coverage, if I'm popular enough they want to put me and Miranda on that stuff -- that's awesome."

I just couldn't get over her, I know I can't," he said.


Julianne Hough Wears Blackface for Halloween

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Television, Photos,

Julianne Hough as Suzanne UPDATE: Julianne has since apologized on Twitter.

It's no surprise that Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black is indeed so popular of a character that folks want to dress up like her for Halloween. What is surprising is that dancer-turned-actress Julianne Hough found it acceptable to dress up in blackface.

Although it's good to see that fans are identifying with a female character of color, Hough could have done without the makeup, considering the fact that she was already wearing her hair in the character's recognizable quasi-spiked 'do and had Warren's ID tag easily noticeable on her chest.

Hough was spotted in the "Crazy Eyes" getup at a Halloween Party she attended with friends last night - all of whom were also dressed like Orange Is the New Black characters.

The Dancing with the Stars winner has yet to address any of the controversy and Twitter uproar regarding her Halloween costume.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Pop,

Madonna and Lady GagaLady Gaga is not a "reductive Madonna copy."

The "Applause" singer doesn't care if people accusing her of imitating the elder star - sparked by her 2011 single "Born This Way" bearing similarities to Madonna's "Express Yourself" - because she feels her work stands apart.

"LADY GAGA IS A REDUCTIVE MADONNA COPY! SHE'S OVER NOW! #WriteWhatUWant #SayWhatUWantBoutMe #ImNotSorry," she wrote on Twitter. She then added a link to a 2012 interview in which Madonna described her songs as "reductive," adding, "MADONNA HATES GAGA SHE'S OVER. I don't need anybody's permission to be remembered. I will be. Whether they like it or not."

Gaga, 27, also addressed her past issues with drugs and fluctuating weight in a similar manner: "LADY GAGA IS ON DRUGS. HER CAREER IS OVER! (Been an addict for 10 years) #WriteWhatUWant. My recovery is a daily battle."

Sinead O'Connor and Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has compared Sinead O'Connor to Amanda Bynes. The starlet hasn't responded well to the open letter the Irish hitmaker penned this morning, in which she warned Miley her provocative behavior and scantily-clad performances would leave her "prostituted" by the music business.

The former Hannah Montana star has taken to Twitter to slam Sinead, poking fun of her mental health and likening her to troubled actress Amanda, who has spent the summer in a psychiatric hospital. "Before Amanda Bynes.... There was...," she wrote, attaching a screenshot of a tweets from an account she believed was Sinead's, clamoring for psychiatric help. While the account was a fake, Sinead did post suicidal tweets in 2011 and has struggled with mental illness in the past.
