Jessica Simpson Would Get Married in Sweats with Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson has raved about how fiance Eric Johnson makes her feel totally comfortable in her skin -- maybe so much that she'd get hitched in her sweats!

She tweeted after a workout on Thursday night: "Eric and I could get married right now in sweats!"

Word has it that Jessica has been hitting the gym hard so she can look picture-perfect on her wedding day. But why the big fuss over a healthy regime?

"Yes, I am working out, but why is that worth any sorta [sic] press?" she said. "I always take care of myself."

Amen to that. A girl's allowed to look good for her guy! There's no official date for the non-sweats wedding, but Jessica has said she'd like to be married by this Christmas. Winter wonderland wedding in the works?

Lady Gaga: I Don't Want a Glamorous Life

Lady Gaga says that she prefers the grime of New York to the glitz and glamor of Los Angeles.

The "Born This Way" hitmaker insists she will always live in the New York neighborhood where she grew up as she was left thoroughly unimpressed after a brief stint on the Hollywood party scene.

She said: “I actually made a choice to keep my life pretty normal.

“Some point about two years ago I said to myself, ‘OK, am I going to put my toe in Hollywood’s pond and figure out if I want to live a glamorous life and assimilate to the glamorous lifestyle’, but I really didn’t want to do it.

“And I don’t like Hollywood and I don’t like the whole scene and I just said, ‘I’m going to go home and figure out how to be the first popstar to live in the same neighborhood for the rest of their life that I grew up in’, and that’s what I do.

“I still live where I always lived, I still hang out and drink whiskey at the same bars. I still go to the same hardware store.”

Tough she uses a stage name, the eccentric star -- real name Stefani Germanotta -- insisted that fans always see her as she really is.

Said Gaga while appearing on the Kyle & Jackie O Show: “I’ve become more and more confident as a woman and a don’t make any distinction between myself as Stefani, my birth name and myself, Gaga.

“It’s just a nickname, I’m the same person through and through physically. Who my fans see that’s really who I am and they have never complained to me about it. If they do I will certainly be listening to it and paying attention as I want them to be happy.”

The sighting comes just as Miss Bilson has launched a new line of vintage porcelain dinnerware called Edie Rose Home by Rachel Bilson.

Described as "an affordable, nature-themed tabletop line," the 29-year-old told C magazine of the offerings:: “To stick with fashion, that would be a little more predictable."

With the products currently available at select Macy's stores, Rachel added, "But there’s no one in my demographic, or really any ‘celebrity’ who has a similar aesthetic as me, who’s doing home or tabletop design. I’m sort of obsessed with dishes. I’m always cooking and baking at home, and I hate going out. I’d love to do bedding, too.”

A friend told PopEater, "To say Miley is angry is an understatement. She's furious that her own flesh and blood would make a private matter so public. Who does he think he is, Michael Lohan?"

"This isn't what a father does. He never said a bad world about Hannah Montana all those years it made millions for the family, and now that Miley has turned 18 and is making her own decisions, he does this. Unforgivable."

Lady Gaga Arrives at Grammys in Giant Egg

Talk about shell-shock.

Tucked inside a giant egg that's being carried by a small army of scantily clad men, Lady Gaga made her crazy entrance at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards one to remember, as promised.

So what's the deal with her arrival, and when can we see the dress?

We've got the exclusive details...

Gaga's choreographer and creative director, Laurieann Gibson, explained to our own Ryan Seacrest: "This is a womb...designed by Hussein Chalayan. She's now incubating, and she's been in there a serious amount of time so we can't let you know what it's made of."

And Nurse Anne V., the blond (and horned) glamazon also escorting the egg across the red carpet, chimed in, "Lady Gaga's heartbeat is 126 bpm. She's very excited to be here. She will be birthed during her performance this evening."

Way to build up the drama, ladies.

The pop star's legion of Little Monsters also created waves today—for helping E! set the Guinness world record for the biggest gathering of Lady Gaga impersonators at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Los Angeles!

Carrie Underwood's Hubby Moving to Nashville

Looks like Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher will no longer have a long-distance marriage.

The singer's hockey-player husband has been traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators, according to CBC News. With Fisher living in Ottawa and Underwood based in Nashville, the good news is that the couple will no longer have to travel to see each other.

"We will both truly miss Ottawa," Underwood said in a statement Thursday. "Mike has been such a big part of the community, and I will never forget how they welcomed me with open arms. We obviously love Nashville, and the teams' decision for him to now play with the Predators is an exciting opportunity for Mike. I support him wherever he plays!"

Fisher himself has mixed feelings about the change. "It's hard, it's a bit of a shock [and it ] still hasn't sunk in yet," he said in a video interview on the NHL Web site. "The hardest part is the goodbyes to people. That's tough. I'm excited about Nashville, about the Predators. If a trade was going to happen and there was a place I had to go, it would be Nashville. I'm excited about being a part of that team, they're a very good team."

Added Fisher, "I'm sure my wife won't be disappointed ... I think it will be a great place for me and the family."
