• More trouble for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball Tour in Asia: The pop star managed to insult fans in Thailand with a tweet Wednesday night: “I just landed in Bangkok baby! Ready for 50,000 screaming Thai monsters. I wanna get lost in a lady market and buy fake Rolex.” Unclear if mentioning the ladies or the knockoffs was more offensive, but some fans are calling for a boycott of her concert Friday, reports the Associated Press. “Welcome to the land of counterfeit products, love,” Thai fan Nont Armarttasn posted on Facebook. “I’m sure there are plenty of fake Gaga CDs, too.”

• The Ukrainian reporter slapped by Will Smith at the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black 3” has apologized but says he wasn’t really trying to lock lips with the actor. “Now I understand it was too much,” Vitalii Sediuk told Hip Hollywood. “But I just tried to kiss him in cheek, and he moved his head so fast, so then it turned out as if I wanted to kiss him in the lip or in the ear. It was chaotic.” Sediuk says he “deeply” respects Smith and will stick to a handshake if there’s a next time.
