Gaga goes under the knife

No, it's not what you're thinking. On Wednesday, Mother Monster underwent hip surgery to fix a labral tear in her right hip, for which she had to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball tour.

Last week, the 26-year-old tweeted, "I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal," followed by an apology to her loyal fans who had bought tickets to her tour: "To the fans in Chicago Detroit & Hamilton I hope you can forgive me, as it is nearly impossible for me to forgive myself. Im devasted & sad."

Before going into surgery Wednesday, Gaga again took to Twitter to thank her Little Monsters: "Going in for surgery now. Thank you so much for sending me love and support. I will be dreaming of you."

Luckily, the surgery went well, and the "Bad Romance" singer wrote a lengthy thank you to her Monsters on her website, saying, "You really gave me a lot of strength today. ... [I] thought to myself, I'm alive, I'm living my dream, and this is just a bump in the road. I'm grateful because this is temporary, and for some it is not. You have changed my life. I love you and am proud to be a part of your lives. If you can do it, I can do it too, and if we stick together we can get through anything. Love, Gaga."

Keep your chins up, Little Monsters, Mother Monster's sure to be back onstage in no time -- and her third album, "ARTPOP," is expected to release later this year!

Ashton and Mila moving in
Lovebirds Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are taking the next step in their relationship -- they're moving in together! According to US Weekly, Mila has been living in Ashton's Hollywood Hills pad while her own place is renovated, but they've yet to make it official. And an insider told the mag that Ashton's roommate is moving out so that Mila can have more space.

The two publicly started dating last spring, several months after Ashton, 35, split from his wife, Demi Moore.

Although Ashton's technically still married, he and Mila seem committed to each other. (Of course, that's what we thought when Ashton and Demi got together. ...) - Elizabeth Larner

Friday flashback: Feb. 22

1990: Pop dance group Milli Vanilli, consisting of Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus, won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, only to have it taken back four days after the group's creator, Frank Farian, admitted that neither of the performers had sung a single note on any of their albums. The group's debut album, "Girl You Know It's True," had previously sold 14 million copies, and the duo had enjoyed five top hits, including "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You" and "Baby, Don't Forget My Number," before the fraudulent behavior took them out of the limelight.

Quick takes:

After eight years of marriage, Diane Lane and Josh Brolin announced that they are getting a divorce.

Shia LaBeouf will no longer be performing in the Broadway show "Orphans" "due to creative differences," said producers.

Kim Kardashian set the record straight: She will remain on "Keeping up with the Kardashians" through at least season 10, as will the rest of the family.

Kate Hudson was seen dancing on a couch and kissing her fiance, Matthew Bellamy, at a Brit Awards afterparty in London.

Will Arnett, who split from wife Amy Poehler in September, will play a recently divorced man on a new CBS comedy.
