LADY GAGA RANTS - DROPS THE 'R' WORD: In an interview in the new issue of "NME" magazine, LADY GAGA proved she can be just as insensitive as the rest of us by dropping the "R-word." Yup, GaGa used the no longer politically correct word, "retarded."

Here's what happened: The interviewer pointed out what we've all been saying for months ... that GaGa's "Born This Way" sounds very similar to MADONNA'S "Express Yourself", and suggested it was intentional. Lady GaGa went off on him HARD!!!

She said, quote, "I'm not stupid enough to put out a record and be that moronic ...What the [eff]? I'm a songwriter. I've written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a [copied] song and think I'm getting one over on everybody? THAT'S RETARDED. What a completely ridiculous thing to even question me about."

Last night, she released this message apologizing for her "mistake.": "To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional. An honest mistake requires honesty to make. Whether life's disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.' --Lady Gaga."

IS THERE BAD ROMANCE BETWEEN GAGA AND WEIRD AL???!!!: For a time yesterday Lady Gaga and WEIRD AL YANKOVIC were locked in a he-said, she-said battle over a goof song titled "Perform This Way." He even unleashed an angry anti-GaGa tirade on his blog yesterday claiming he was rejected only after she strung him along and wasted his time.

Later, Gaga's rep countered with a denial of that denial, telling TMZ, "There must have been a misunderstanding because [Gaga] is in no way trying to block the release of the parody."
Technically, Weird Al doesn't NEED her approval to release the track, because his parodies fall under "fair use.") He did however upload the song on YouTube.

But all's well ends well. Late last night, Weird Al updated his blog saying Gaga has signed off on the parody after all, adding her people admitted they hadn't given the track to her in the first place.

CHARLIE LOSES IN COURT, BOMBS IN DC: Yesterday was NOT a winner for CHARLIE SHEEN. First, a judge shot down his request for sole custody of his sons, despite baby mamma Brooke Mueller's return to rehab.

The judge's ruling wasn't announced, but TMZ says it's basically because of Charlie's past drug use, and how he's been bragging about it. The joint custody rights the two reached in March remains unchanged.

CHARLIE'S SHEEN-ANIGANS: Now that ex-wife BROOKE MUELLER is back in rehab, CHARLIE SHEEN is wasting no time in using the opportunity to try to get custody of their two sons.

Sheen is set to appear in an L.A. court today to ask the judge to award him full custody of Bob and Max, and give him permission to take the twins on the road with him during the last two weeks of his tour. Charlie plans to argue that Brooke's drug relapse makes her an unfit mother. In turn, Brooke's lawyers plan to ask for full custody and that Charlie be psychologically evaluated.

His family, with help from the Passages Hospice Dream Foundation, contacted Steven, who agreed to meet him through Skype on a laptop. Although Lawrence couldn't respond, he did tear-up. He died later that day. You can watch a Youtube video of their meeting here. The audio from Steven's end isn't the best, though.

Mug shot (E! Online)
CELEBRITIES BEHAVING BADLY - NIC CAGE: NICOLAS CAGE was arrested Saturday morning on domestic violence charges in New Orleans over the weekend after getting into a heated argument with his wife over the location of the apartment they were renting.

According to the police report, "Cage grabbed her by the upper arm and pulled her to what he believed was the correct address. (He)then began striking vehicles and later attempted to get into a taxi."

"At that point, an officer who had been flagged down by onlookers drove up on the couple, immediately observed that Cage was heavily intoxicated and ordered him out of the cab, which prompted Cage to start yelling."

TMZ claims Cage actually DARED the cops to take him in, saying, quote, "Why don't you just arrest me?" They honored his request, subsequently booking him on suspicion of domestic battery and disturbing the peace.

2.) It was Dog the Bounty Hunter who posted Nic's $11,000 bond Saturday afternoon. He later released a rather lengthy statement to the media explaining why he won't talk to the media about Cage's arrest. And yes, that *is* the very definition of 'irony'.

Getty Images
Dog said in part, "I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage and will not be granting any interviews about my client as I wish to respect his privacy. I performed my duties as a bail bondsman and not in connection with our show."

3.) Prior to the early morning altercation, Cage was spotted in a tattoo shop, where word is he stumbled around and told employees he didn't remember where he lived.

WATCH IT NOW: Surveillance video of Nic in the tattoo parlor arguing with his wife.
