Lady Gaga ‘doing great’ after surgery

Lady Gaga’s manager says the pop star is “doing unbelievable” a month after she had hip surgery that caused her to cancel her U.S. tour.

Vincent Herbert said in an interview Tuesday the 26-year-old Grammy winner is “doing wonderful, doing great.”

Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, canceled her “Born This Way Ball” tour last month. She’d hurt herself while performing some time ago.

Herbert says Gaga is finishing her new album, “ARTPOP,” and is “ready to get back to work.”

Brooks & Strait

Garth Brooks and George Strait will perform together for the first time at next month’s Academy of Country Music Awards to honor Dick Clark.

The performance by the two most recent winners of the ACM’s artist of the decade award is symbolic. That award will be renamed for Clark, the entertainment icon and longtime producer of the ACM Awards who passed away last year.

The 48th annual awards will air live on CBS on April 7 from Las Vegas. Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan host the show.

Canceled

HBO says the Laura Dern series Enlightened isn’t coming back for a third season.

Enlightened, created by Dern and her co-star Mike White, was critically acclaimed but low-rated.

Last year, Dern won a Golden Globe for best TV comedy actress for her role as a manic-depressive who becomes an activist.

The Enlightened cast also included Diane Ladd and Luke Wilson.

Engaged

Former Gilmore Girl Alexis Bledel and Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser are engaged.

The news was first reported by Us Weekly. The couple have been dating about a year.

The 33-year-old Kartheiser plays ad man Pete Campbell on the hit AMC network drama, where, last season, Pete had an extramarital affair with the wife of a commuting friend. She was played by Bledel in a guest-starring role.

Bledel, 31, is best known for her role as the teenage daughter in the long-running series Gilmore Girls, and for her performances in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and that hit movie’s sequel.
