Has Brad Pitt Stopped Using Soap?
Years ago, there were reports that BRAD PITT wasn't the most pleasingly aromatic guy in Hollywood.
The "National Enquirer" claims Brad is back to emitting a foul odor, because he no longer uses SOAP. Instead he washes with, quote, "a homemade concoction of lemons, water and apple cider vinegar."
A source says, quote, "Brad says he's read up on the toxins of soap . . . especially the antibacterial ones . . . and feels that using them and antiperspirants is not only bad for the planet, but it also speeds up the aging process in humans."
The family isn't happy about it . . . and the kids have even been calling him STINKY DADDY. ANGELINA JOLIE tolerates it as long as they're away from each other working.
But when they recently reunited in Hong Kong, the source says Angelina, quote, "managed to coax him into a bubble bath."

In Berlin, Lady Gaga wore what some say is a strange bird-like outfit, with a giant headdress that completely covers her face. It's so big and awkward that she looks like a mascot or something.
Then, later the SAME DAY, Lady Gaga showed up in another crazy outfit . . . complete with lingerie and a FAKE mustache.
Finally, Lady Gaga ended the day by taking a TOPLESS shot of herself . . . still wearing the moustache, plus some weird glasses . . . and posted it on Instagram. She's covering herself with her arm though.
