Lady Gaga and Anderson Cooper are drinking buddies. James Franco continues to be the best at everything. Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal continue their world coffee shop tour. Sunday Gossip Roundup is a perfectly-made fried egg.

  • When Anderson Cooper recently interviewed Lady Gaga in London, she got him wasted on Irish Whiskey. Cooper told The Insider "We actually ended up that day in a pub in London drinking Jameson, which I don't really drink… So, she got me to drink, like, two of them. And by the end, I was ready to have the interview be over, because I really sort of couldn't ask anymore questions." The Gaga influence could explain why Anderson Cooper wore a bunny costume on assignment. Watch for him to wear a meat suit on his next trip to Haiti. Together, these two could dominate all entertainment. [Popeater]
  • Justin Timberlake is campaigning heavily for an Oscar for his performance in the Social Network. Sorry, but if Timberlake didn't get an Oscar nod for Southland Tales he's never getting one of those statues. [P6]
  • Famed short fiction writer James Franco was a hit at Inside the Actors Studio: After the taping he stayed around and chatted with every fan; and during the taping, host James Lipton had to stop because of the screaming girls: "17 years filming this show and I've never heard a sound like that before," he said. Good to see a literary figure getting so much attention in this country. [TMZ]
  • Our new favorite celebrity couple, Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal were spotted in Swift's home base of Nashville yesterday, getting breakfast at a coffeehouse. One on-looker said "They were smiling and laughing… They didn't look like [just] friends." Just a few days ago, they were at a coffee shop in Park Slope. Seems that all these two do is go on long walks to coffee shops in brisker and brisker weather. January comes around and we'll see pictures of Jake and Taylor walking down the street in Saskatchewan encased in giant ice cubes with their hands sticking out holding onto pumpkin-spice lattes. What's the celebrity portmanteau for these two, anyway? TayJay? [People]
  • Angelina Jolie took her daughters Zahara and Shiloh shopping in Paris. One of the things they bought was a giant alligator and a knight costume. The store they went to sounds pretty insane: "The Bonpoint store contains one fun feature which the girls enjoyed: an entire room that holds a child-sized farmhouse with several levels, meandering passages and see-through walls." We do most of our shopping in our underwear on Amazon. [People]
  • A new twist in the world's saddest celebrity marital dispute: Now Oksana Grigorieva is accusing Mel Gibson of extorting her by threatening criminal prosecution for her secretly taping him unless she signed a mediation agreement. Previously, Mel was accusing Oksana of extorting him by threatening to release those terrible tapes unless he paid up. This is going to end with a severed horse head in someone's bed! [TMZ]
  • Lindsay Lohan still smokes cigarettes! People are treating this as if it is a failure on her part to kick a powerful addiction. But, really, the only way Lindsay Lohan will ever quit smoking is if she gets a brain transplant. [Daily Mail]
  • "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss' house caught on a fire on Thanksgiving: The fire caused over $60,000 worth of damage. But Fleiss says "her 20 birds are all safe." Tragedy averted. [TMZ]
