They claim she dropped 80-GRAND on various procedures, including, quote, "fillers, stretch mark treatments and a fat reducing ultrasound procedure on her stomach that costs up to $5,000 a session."

Then she talked about her ENDOSCOPY, and the silly stuff she did when she woke up from the anesthesia.
Justin Bieber Says He "Doesn't Give an [Eff]" What the Media Says About Him
JUSTIN BIEBER has gone from having a relatively clean record to constantly being in the news for drugs, prostitutes, wild parties, and just being a punk.
Well, in an interview with the "Hollywood Reporter", Justin doesn't necessarily deny anything . . . but he seems to believe the media is out to get him, and is totally misrepresenting him. And he's tired of dealing with it.
He says, quote, "I don't give [an eff]. Not 'I don't give [an eff]' to just be reckless and do whatever, but 'I don't give [an eff] what they say.' . . .
"I know who I am and what I'm doing in my life and what I've accomplished and continue to accomplish as a performer, as a writer, as an artist, as a person, as a human being. I'm happy with the man I'm becoming."
A lot of celebrities have reached out to Justin privately, to make sure he's okay, including Oprah, Adam Levine, Mark Wahlberg, Eminem, Drake and Tom Hanks.
But Justin's, quote, "most present mentor" is: WILL SMITH. When Justin was going through a tough time back in May, Will drove to his house in the middle of the night . . . woke him up . . . and talked to him for three hours. Now they talk every week.
Oh, and one last thing: Justin has RETIRED the word "swag." He explains, quote, "I don't really like to say the word ['swag'] anymore. It's kind of played out." (You can read the whole thing at HollywoodReporter.com.)

The unstoppable list-makers at "Forbes" have released their annual rundown of The World's Highest-Paid Musicians. The estimates are based on total earnings from June of LAST year up through this past June.

"It's incredible to have a woman . . . that is not using you for money . . . because once you become like a multi-millionaire there's a certain type of women out there that they go for that, and they'll put on the whole act and everything."
Just last week, DRAKE and RIHANNA were dropping serious dollar bills at a Houston strip joint. But Drake may have his sights set on another woman: LENNY KRAVITZ'S daughter ZOE.

"It's her journey, she's having fun, she's being who she is and I'll always love her. She's been one of my friends since I was 14 . . . so power to her!
"I think that the world kind of needs to get over the fact that she was 'Hannah Montana' when she was like 16 or whatever . . . same thing with me, but I guess my transition was a little different because I went straight to rehab . . .
"I didn't twerk, I just went to rehab."

"I would write creative genius when I go through the airport. I would put that on customs [forms], where you put what your title is, except for two reasons: it takes too long to write and sometimes I spell the word genius wrong."

(The "National Enquirer" has been beating this drum constantly. You may recall back in August when they tried to drag TAYLOR SWIFT into the rumor mill of nonsense.)

First, R. Kelly picked Lady Gaga up . . . and ran his hands all over her body, including her backside. He also patted her butt. Then, Lady Gaga knelt in front of him, and seemed to be simulating ORAL RELATIONS.

Back in October, "Good Morning America's" AMY ROBACH randomly underwent a mammogram live on the show to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Amy had some reservations about whether or not SHE should be the one to do it . . . since she didn't have any connection to the disease, or any family history. But the producers kind of strong-armed her into it.

Amy made the announcement on "Good Morning America" yesterday.
She said, quote, "I'd been asked if I would give a mammogram on-air . . . I was a little reluctant at first. I'm 40, I'm the age and I've been putting it off . . .
"I'm so grateful that I got the mammogram that day . . . ROBIN [ROBERTS'] words still echo inside of me. [She had said] 'If I got the mammogram on-air and saved one life then it's all worth it.' It never occurred to me that that life would be MINE."
Amy added that she isn't going to hold-back with her treatment . . . quote, "I've decided to have a [double] mastectomy. I'm going to be very aggressive. I'm 40 years old, I'm young, and I hopefully have a lot of life ahead of me.

"I think that there's an assumption . . . that I cannot break because I'm [an] alien woman and I'm unstoppable. The truth is that I can break, and I did . . . I lost everything that I love . . . I did a lot of drugs and took a lot of pills."
But now, Lady Gaga wants to break the cycle. She said, quote, "I do put that pressure on myself . . . I have to be high to be creative. I need that, that's an error in my life that happened for over 10 years.
"Can I be brilliant without it? I know that I can be and I have to be, because I want to live . . . I want to show people that I will last past 27 . . . and I want to change this code in the atmosphere that 'in order to be remembered, I must die young.'"
