Gwyneth tops 'Most Hated' list

Posted: April 19, 2013

LONDON'S Daily Mail originally referred to this Star magazine poll as the 20 Most Irritating Celebrities, but the Star calls it the 20 Most Hated Celebrities.

To Tattle there's a huge difference.

A fly buzzing around your head is irritating.

But do you hate the fly?

We don't "hate" any celebrities.

But almost all of them are irritating.

Anyway, at No. 1 on the Star's poll is Gwyneth Paltrow, whose pompous blog has made her annoying. But hateable? She's Pepper Potts.

At No. 2 is Kristen Stewart. She sort of publicly broke up a marriage, so we can see how she might rub some people the wrong way. Plus, she never combs her hair.

No. 3: Jennifer Lopez. Don't get it.

No. 4: John Mayer. Totally get it.

No. 5: Katherine Heigl. Get a big head from "Grey's Anatomy," make a few bad movies and the fans turn on you in a snap.

No. 6: Matt Lauer. How many votes did Ann Curry get?

No. 7: Madonna. If you've been near the top of your game for three decades, someone's got to like you.

No. 8: Justin Bieber. Had the poll just covered the past month, he would have been top five.

No. 9: Anne Hathaway. She's beautiful, fashionable, can sing and dance, and has won an Oscar. Haters gonna hate.

No. 10: Kris Jenner: Why is she a celebrity?

Rounding out the top 20 in order: Kim Kardashian, LeAnn Rimes, Ashton Kutcher, Jay Leno, Angelina Jolie, Lindsay Lohan, Shia LaBeouf, Taylor Swift, Jesse James and Chris Brown.

Seriously? How can Chris Brown be so much less hated than Jennifer Lopez? What has J.Lo ever done to anyone?

Shakira is asking a New York judge to throw out a $250 million lawsuit filed by her ex-boyfriend Antonio de la Rua.

De la Rua is the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. He dated Shakira for more than a decade before they split in 2011.

De la Rua has been waging an international war against his ex, saying that he shaped the "Shakira brand."

The New York Daily News reports that Shakira said in court papers filed in Manhattan that she does not owe her success to de la Rua.

She says that he was just one of the numerous advisers of her brand.

And her shape is all hers. Those hips don't lie.

Tracy Morgan will host the Billboard Music Awards on May 19 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Morgan adds in his statement: "And how can you say no when Prince is going to be there!"

Ashley Madison is not related to the infidelity dating website Ashley Madison.
