The Dredge: Which US politician needs Justin Bieber's help?

The best of this morning’s celebrity dirt…

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, the Daily Edge rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom. Here’s The Dredge.

#AWRIGHT GUVNER? Chris Christie the New Jersey Republican governor who successfully postponed Halloween in the wake of superstorm Sandy has appealed to Justin Bieber, Bruce Springsteen and Danny DeVito for help to spread the word about the relief effort.

He’s taken to Twitter to appeal to Bieber, Springsteen and DeVito, as well as the Jonas Brothers, Ryan Seacrest and Piers Morgan.

Springsteen has not been a big fan of Christie’s in the past, refusing to perform at his inauguration in 2009, but maybe he could suck it up for a good cause? (Although, to be fair, he already has).

#NOT GAY Jessica Simpson‘s father Joe has responded to reports that he’s gay, saying “I’m not gay”. He’s been telling people that the reports about his marriage breakdown are simply not true (TMZ – which also has a handy poll so YOU can vote on whether you think he’s gay or not. WTF?). A few days ago a male escort said that his services had been engaged by Simpson, while it was also reported that he had been seeing a 21-year-old male model (Perez).

#NOT FAT Meanwhile Lady Gaga has responded to reports that she’s fat, saying “I’m not fat”. The singer said that Adele is bigger than she is, but “nobody says anything about it”. She said that she has put on about 30 lbs and her mother was phoning her asking her had she gained weight, but that she doesn’t care. (

This is her last week at a Halloween party. Yeah, she’s really fat.

Lady Gaga. Not fat at all. (Little Monsters)
