Miley Cyrus admits to smoking weed. We all knew it, and now she confirms it. At her birthday party, she was presented with a Bob Marley cake. In response she exclaimed, “You know you’re a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake — you know you smoke way too much f***in’ weed!” We already kind of figured, especially after the video of her circulated that showed her SMOKING WEED. Thanks for coming clean, Miley. As they say, “You don’t have to lie to kick it.”

If there’s one thing besides constant reinvention that Madonna does best is keep up with the times. Madge always seems to have her finger on the pulse of what’s current, and she’s not afraid to exploit a trend for her own gain. Noting the popularity of savvy, edgy female rappers, Madonna decided to join forces with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj for a super collaboration that will definitely put a Madonna single at the top of the Billboard charts for the first time in a long time. Smart thinking, Madge!
The juiciest gossip of the week has to be the Demi Moore/Ashton Kutcher split. The two have announced their decision to get divorced amid months of speculation as to problems in their marriage. On this subject, Demi said:
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.
Ashton’s announcement came via Twitter and said:
I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.
Some people get a certain kind of glee out of seeing other people’s failures, but we are sad about this one. Our hearts go out to Demi and Ashton and their family during this troubling time.
Everyone knows Jessica Simpson is pregnant. Her belly is huge! However, she was holding off on announcing the pregnancy until she could sell her story to a magazine.

Eddie Murphy, who was slated to host the next Academy Awards show, quit this week in a showing of solidarity. Brett Ratner, one of the producers of the Academy Awards, made a homophobic statement on the Howard Stern show. Ratner, who enraged the LGBT community with his slur, stepped down from his producing role on the Oscars. Ratner and Murphy are very close friends, and so Murphy quit the Oscar-hosting gig in support of his friend. This isn’t the brightest move, given that this hosting job would have reinvigorated Murphy’s flagging career.
Mariah Carey shows off her new post-baby body, and she’s looking gooooood. Carey gave birth to twins in April, Morroccan and Monroe, and has spent the ensuing months dieting and exercising, but she’s even smaller than her pre-baby weight. Using Jenny Craig and low impact exercising, Carey shed 70 pounds in the past six months. She’ll now go on to be the spokesperson for Jenny Craig. It’s refreshing to see a star look amazing, but not overly skinny, by use of normal methods of weight loss. You go girl!
This week in celebrity relationships: Pippa Middleton has split from her boyfriend of three years, cricket player Alex Loudon.

She may look like a good girl, but Taylor Swift is often surrounded by scandal and romantic mishaps. She has recently been dealing with a nude photo scandal. A leaked photo was put on the internet by a website called Celebrity Jihad. Swift is suing the website, claiming that the photo is not of her.

However, the website has not made any decision yet whether or not they will comply with Swift’s demands.
Justin Timberlake is a long way from his N*Sync days. Now a legitimate actor and musician in his own right, Timberlake has earned the accolades of Hollywood peers and press alike. However, Timberlake recently announced decisions to take a Hollywood hiatus in order to explore the world and relax. He told Esquire Magazine:
I think you can work and work and work and never really live. The plan is to have no plan. I’ll probably travel, but I’d rather be spontaneous. I feel like I’ve earned at least a little bit of time to do that…
There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world. Maybe it wasn’t a conscious thought, but it was an underlying theme. I’ve spent a lot of time feeling like I needed to validate so much of who I was by what I did.
After I turned 30 I started asking myself questions why… The only validation I crave now is to be inspired in the same way I’ve always been. That’s all I really owe myself at this point. If I stopped now, I could look at everything I’ve done and be so proud.
Last week, Usher was attending a Halloween Parade, and apparently his celebrity ego prompted him to take up a handicap parking space. Parade attendees were not very pleased by his selfishness. One woman asked Usher to move his car, but when he refused, the confrontation turned into a shouting match. She then physically attacked Usher before being removed by security guards. You can see the video of the event here:
Though it may sound like the plot to a film, Kate Winslet’s recent rescue of an elderly woman was the real thing. While staying at Richard Branson’s Carribean home, Winslet was awoken at 4:30am to screams of “Fire! Fire!” She reacted quickly by getting dressed and carrying out Eve Branson, Richard Branson’s mother. She told Graham Norton on The Graham Norton Show:
I ran into the bedroom and put on a bra. In disastrous moments like that, you do the strangest things. I started to put on a bra and thought ‘No, that’s going to take me too long,’ so off came the bra, on came the t-shirt, I grabbed the children and I picked up Granny. We were all at the top of some very slippery stone steps and in the middle of a hurricane – it was so dramatic, there was lashing rain and it really did feel like being in a movie. In truth, I carried Eve Branson down the stairs.
Everyone emerged from the fire unscathed, and Winslet is now being heralded as a heroine.
A bruised and sallow cheeked Lindsay Lohan showed up for her court hearing this week, and was sentenced, handcuffed and then released on bail. Her sentence includes a stint doing community service at a morgue. She was required to start community service this week. Instead of following rules, Lohan prolonged her “poster child for bad behavior” image by showing up the morgue late. It’s time for the media to officially resign any interest in Lohan. She’s obviously resigned any interest in saving herself.
Jessica Simpson is pregnant, and it’s obvious. However, Simpson has refused to make an official pregnancy announcement until she can land a $500,000 magazine deal. Her baby isn’t even born yet and she’s already looking for exploitation angles.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Liveley have officially split, supposedly because DiCaprio’s mother found Liveley to be vain and shallow. However, most mom’s are pretty hard on their son’s new beaus. Liveley has already rebounded with another tall, good-looking blonde guy (does she have a type?). Ryan Reynolds is her rebound of choice, and, may we say, he’s a pretty choice rebound. 😉
