Lindsay Lohan left rehab yesterday as scheduled, but she's not rejoining society just yet. She plans to spend a few days living with a SOBER COACH, because she wanted some kind of transition from rehab to the real world. Lindsay is guest-hosting "Chelsea Lately" this coming Monday.
And as we previously reported, Lindsay's telling people in her life she feels like she needs a transition period before re-entering the real world on her own. Lindsay checked into the Betty Ford Center back on May 2 to begin her court-ordered rehab stay -- and transferred to Cliffside in mid-June.
Lady Gaga's now back in tip-top shape after undergoing a hip surgery earlier this year that forced her to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball tour. But it looks like her injury was far more serious—and grisly—than even Mother Monster had initially let on. In an interview with Women's Wear Daily, the pop diva revealed the extent of the damage to her hip, saying that, had she pushed things further, she would have likely needed a full hip replacement. "My injury was actually a lot worse than just a labral tear," she tells the mag. "I had broken my hip. Nobody knew, and I haven't even told the fans yet. "The surgeon told me that if I had done another show I might have needed a full hip replacement," she explains. "I would have been out at least a year, maybe longer." The forced downtime proved to be a fertile creative respite for the singer. "I had six months to beef up my brain and my body. I got to put a giant white or black sheet of paint over my whole canvas and I got to review ARTPOP again," she says about her upcoming album, which will be released on Nov. 11. "I was given the time to really be creative because it's a gazing process, it really is. I have to gaze into the work for long periods of time for it to be good," she explains, adding that once she's finally nailed it, she has "that wonderful feeling" which tells her "that's the one."
Poor little Justin Bieber wanted to party his face off Monday night ... but His Douche-ness was brutally shot down by one NYC nightclub ... because he's still a baby in bar years (i.e. under 21).

Robin Thicke was on the "Today" show yesterday, and Savannah Guthrie asked him about the controversy over his song "Blurred Lines". Turns out he has a pretty high opinion of that particular tune. He says it does what all great art does, which is to inspire discussion and thought. He said some of the lyrics were misconstrued, but they were just trying to have a good time and get people on the dance floor. He points out that he's been with his wife since they were in their teens, and he has nothing but respect for women. He's been married to actress Paula Patton for eight years, but they've been dating for 20.
In case you didn't hear about it, some woman in the Apple Store in Los Angeles went viral last week when she started screaming in the middle of the store. She was angry because she didn't have an appointment, and they told her to wait in line. (Apparently on the phone they had told her she could just walk in. Another customer caught it on her phone and uploaded it to Twitter.
Apparently, Denzel Washington's characters in his movies "guarantee" things a lot. It's in enough of his movies that someone actually made a montage of all the times he says it. It's pretty amusing. Look it up.
Anthony Weiner's phone sex partner Sydney Leathers targeted men on the Internet for more than 3 years -- actively recruiting (and juggling) multiple sugar daddies who paid up to $4,000 a pop to connect with her. We found proof of Sydney's man-hunting history on a hookup site called SeekingArrangement.com, where she described herself as a 22-year-old "naughty but nice" student. Best of all, she proudly announced she's "looking for a discreet, mutually beneficial relationship" ... aka a "sugar daddy." Sources close to Sydney tell TMZ she's been trolling these kinds of sites since she was 19, and suckers guys would give her anywhere from $200 to $4k to chat, Skype, share pics or meet for dinner. We're told Sydney claims she never had more than three at once, and never took money for sex. Translation: she never quite went pro.
