Lady Gaga kicked off her hotly awaited Born This Way Ball at Seoul, South Korea's Olympic Stadium on Friday (April 27) in front of 45,000 fans, and despite protests from Christian groups saying Mother Monster was "obscene" and could "taint" young people with her performance, the concert appears to have gone on without incident.

Gwyneth Paltrow's comments in an interview on The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet
"I couldn't connect with my son the way that I had with my daughter and I couldn't understand why. I couldn't connect to anyone. I felt like a zombie. I felt very detached."
"I just didn't know what was wrong with me. I couldn't figure it out. It never occurred to me,"
"My husband actually said, 'Something's wrong. I think you have postnatal depression.' I was mortified. 'No I don't!' And then I started researching what it was and the symptoms and I was like, 'Oh, yes I do.'"
"We think that it makes us bad mothers or we didn't do it right, but it's like, we're all in this together,"
"I never understand why mothers judge other mothers, like, 'What do you mean you didn't breastfeed? What do you mean you didn't do this?' It's like, 'Can't we all just be on each other's side?' It's so hard anyway. Can't we all help each other get through it?"

Jada Pinkett Smith says last summer's reports of a split between her and husband Will Smith are, in a word, "ridiculous."
"Every year, one celebrity couple is under the microscope," Pinkett Smith told told the French-language magazine Gala, as excerpted in translation by People. "This year, unluckily, it's us! I almost want to say that we should have been expecting it."
Yes, they spent a lot of time apart while one or both travel for work, but that's nothing new. And they're certainly not living under separate roofs: "That's ridiculous. We've always lived together," she said.
"These rumors are completely untrue ... our lifestyle hasn't changed," she told the mag. "Before we had the kids, we were already far away from each other quite often because of separate projects."
Will and Jada had gone out of their way in August to rebut InTouch claims that they'd gone their separate ways, saying in a statement at the time, "Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact."
Also part of the scuttlebutt? Talk that Jada was somehow involved with "HawthoRNe" costar Marc Anthony, then recently separated from wife Jennifer Lopez. "We unequivocally deny this," Anthony's rep told People at the time. "Enough is enough. There are families involved, children involved, friendships involved. This is NOT true."
For now, after very public displays of togetherness last August in the days after the rumors bubbled up, Will and Jada are letting time do what time does, she told the French mag.
"Will and I know the truth," she said. "We're waiting peacefully for the storm to blow over."
