Now Trending: Zach Braff and other celebs direct Twitter contempt toward The Bachelor Add to ...

BAD BACHELOR

At least two celebrities are unhappy with how the most recent campaign of The Bachelor turned out. Spoiler alert: Former Scrubs star Zach Braff and musician John Mayer have both taken to social media to express their respective displeasure with Juan Pablo Galavis, who chose not to propose to either of the available single ladies on Monday night’s finale of the love-connection reality series. Earlier this week, Braff tweeted, “Bachelor goes on a douche show, acts like douche, is now mad people think he’s a douche.” That same day, Mayer went on Instagram to post a vintage picture of two unhappy people displaying “contempt with some disgust” faces and the comment: “Thinking about Juan Pablo led me back to this book on my shelf called Unmasking the Face (I like super dense esoterica).”

RETCH ART

It turns out Lady Gaga is willing to go to any lengths in the name of her performance art – and that includes having another woman purge on her. During her Thursday-night performance at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Tex., the singer brought onstage “vomit painter” Millie Brown, whose specialty involves drinking coloured liquids and then regurgitating them back onto a canvas. In this instance, the canvas was Gaga. In the short video clip on TMZ, Gaga is shown playing drums during a song titled Swine, while Brown stands above with her fingers down her throat. After a few bars of the song, Brown vomits neon green liquid all over Gaga’s front, while the crowd roars its approval.

STILL LINDSAY

How did Lindsay Lohan make out in her guest appearance on 2 Broke Girls? Not so great, according to one blogger. A celebrity blogger in attendance at the Thursday taping of the CBS sitcom claims that Lohan had considerable difficulty in her portrayal of a pampered bride-to-be who reaches out to 2 Broke Girls regulars Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) in planning her wedding. The blogger alleges that Lohan had “trouble pronouncing certain words” in the script and “sounded like someone who had been injected with Novocaine an hour earlier.” Perhaps worst of all, Lohan actually took a call on her cellphone right in the middle of filming.

EVEN STEVEN

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek has finally exacted revenge upon talk host Conan O’Brien for making fun of him. The Canadian-born Trebek showed up unexpectedly on Conan this week to take issue with the ginger-haired host for creative editing of his words on Jeopardy!. Next came a video clip showing O’Brien delivering one of his monologues made nonsensical in the same fashion. “I guess we’re even now,” said O’Brien.

MAKE IT STOP

Justin Bieber’s music has finally raised money for a good cause. Earlier this week, administrators at a high school in Washington began playing the Canadian pop star’s 2010 hit Baby over and over on the school’s public-address system during lunch break and between classes. Students were informed that the only way to stop the song from playing was if they collectively donated a total of $500 (U.S.) that would go toward building a school in Ghana. “We considered it motivation for them to donate,” said student government president Conner Stakelin. In less than 24 hours, the school raised $1,000.
