Lady Gaga scores again; Miley says goodbye to Jeff Conaway
Happy long weekend, folks. USA TODAY's Donna Freydkin checking in from sleepy, warm New York City on this Memorial Day three-day break.
This fame monster is unstoppable. Lady Gaga's Born This Way is projected to sell a cool million copies in its first week of release, according to Billboard. Amazon.com had priced the album at 99 cents for its first two days of release, which helped boost sales -- if not Amazon's bottom line.
Notables took to Twitter to say goodbye to actor Jeff Conaway, who died on Friday.
Miley Cyrus: "RIP Jeff Conaway. I'll see you in another life."
Marlee Matlin: "Love this line from #Grease "A hickey from Kenickie is like a Hallmark card." -Jeff Conaway Sad to hear he passed; he struggled so long RIP"
Dr. Drew: "looked like he might pull through last weekend, but unfortunately that was not to be. Please continue to send your well wishes and prayers"
If you're pregnant, it helps to have Chanel and other top French design houses at your disposal. French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, preggers with her second child, wore coolly chic shift dresses at this week's G8 Summit in Deauville, France.
