Steven Tyler went to rehab after multiple leg surgeries in 2008, but in his new Rolling Stone cover story, the Aerosmith singer says he—and guitarist Joe Perry—actually used drugs together during a scrapped recording session around 2009. “It was just like 30 years before,” he explained. “I whipped out mine, he whipped out his and we got high together again. I say to Joe, ‘Wow, man, how you been, it’s been, what, 17 years since we got high together? Joe, you’ve been f—ing running away from me ever since.’” Unsurprisingly, their relapse affected their work. “Joe was high and he couldn’t play. I couldn’t sing, really, because I was snorting everything, and it f—s up your throat. It was the wrong time.”Aerosmith nearly split in late 2009, when Tyler began working on his upcoming autobiography and the band accused him of relapsing. Perry refused to comment on the new allegations, though Aerosmith will reportedly appear on American Idol with Tyler later this eason.
Tyler also talks in the interview about nearly joining Led Zeppelin in 2008 (“I decided, ‘Well, I know that I’m mad at [Aerosmith], but I’m not that mad’”), planning his first solo album (one track is titled “Bobbing For Piranha”!) and his time on Idol (apparently he beat The Who’s Roger Daltrey—known Simon Cowell basher—for the gig!). “You know what, out of the 20 kids you saw tonight…if you could just sprinkle 10 years of smoking pot, getting f—ed up, getting laid, getting f—ed, and 10 years of just life, which one of those people wouldn’t be a star?” Somehow we don’t think we’ve seen the last Steven Tyler f-bomb on Idol.
We can hear Molly Weasley’s screeching voice now, yelling Ron’s name in horror after seeing this photo. Yes, that’s Rupert Grint taking a bong hit —although if Miley Cyrus has taught us anything, it’s that you can even smoke legal drugs out of those things, so who knows if this photo actually has Rupert engaging in illegal activity. More importantly though, Rupert’s pretty buff, huh?

How could we forget the day dedicated to stoners? This past Wednesday was 4/20, which means that plenty of people across the planet celebrated in a haze. Leading the parade was Snoop Dogg, who tweeted, “Happy 420 to d whole world from snoop dogg aka bob marley reincarnated pupils dilated!! Hahaha smoke a zip n dip to a new trip. #snoop420.” This incoherent message came after he posted similar tweets (including shout outs to Willie Nelson and the like) the whole day!
And in case no one was getting his spliff trip, Snoop also tweeted, “This what we do on 420 !!” along with a picture of his favorite bowl. Which — and we had to say it — is the most phallic-like apparatus we’ve seen in a long time. That and the Doggfather’s glazed eyes served the puff-puff-pass purpose quite adequately. We’re guessing Smoke Weed Everyday was playing on a loop.

On Friday we reported about Brooke Mueller‘s drug-free pee search saga. She was ordered to get tested for substances to see if she was finally off them. Apparently, if Brooke refused the test, or if she tested positive for drugs, Charlie was going to fight for custody of their two kids, Max and Bob. There have been a couple of interesting developments since then. The first is that Brooke refused the test that was scheduled for Friday evening. Reports say it’s because she’s using again, with one story suggesting that Brooke was hunting for cocaine in the same neighborhood of the pawn shop, with a dealer called T-Mac alleging he, “… got in her ride, bent a corner, and I hooked her a— up with 8-ball for a buck fifty and told her if she liked it, to come see me again.”
Whether or not that particular story is true, Brooke is back in rehab. A source says that’s because the terms of the test didn’t seem fair, saying, “Brooke will not take a drug test until Charlie takes a drug test. Brooke will not go along with the agreement she and Charlie have in regards to testing until he stops talking about her in public. He’s been violating their agreement from day one and she’s had enough.” Either way, this does not bode well at all for her and her primary custody agreement because Charlie’s lawyers will go to court tomorrow to hash out the details. Does this mean that Brooke’s going to lose custody of the kids? We’ll just have to wait and see.

What the hell is going on with Brooke Mueller? Reports and surveillance footage have surfaced of a woman, allegedly Brooke, trying to pawn off a watch and stereo at a pawn shop in Inglewood, California. Employee Jack Feldman said that Brooke wanted cash but was denied because she wasn’t carrying valid I.D. Why Brooke — who looks freaked in the video — needs the cash is a mystery considering Charlie Sheen pays her $55,000 a month in child support. She also made millions in their divorce settlement.
Unfortunately, sources say this random behavior is happening because Brooke — who has also had drug and alcohol issues — has relapsed. The story doing the rounds is that Brooke was desperate for urine samples from friends because she had to take a test yesterday. If she refuses the test, or if the testing facility found traces of drugs in her pee, then Brooke will lose custody of her two kids. A friend of hers has allegedly said, “Brooke admitted to relapsing. She hasn’t been returning calls, which usually means she’s using. She’s absolutely freaked out that this potential dirty test could result in her losing custody of their 2-year-old twins (Bob and Max) to Charlie.” All of this still doesn’t explain why she was pawning off her stuff. We smell drama!

It seems … interesting … that an actress fresh off an Academy Award win for a dark, disturbing drama would immediately jump into two stoner comedies, but Natalie Portman is doing just that. Not only is she starring in Your Highness, which opens this week, but she’s also producing and starring in a female buddy comedy called Best Buds, the name of which about says it all. Portman admits that the doobie-ous (get it?) subject matter of these two films is something she has some real life experience with.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, “I love stoner comedies. I smoked weed in college, but I haven’t smoked in years.” We sort of love Portman’s honesty—first she divulged a little too much about her sex life in her Golden Globe acceptance speech, and now this. Portman, who is pregnant, added that she’s changed and doesn’t do that sort of thing anymore. “I’m too old,” she said.
“I wish I was that cool, but I’m like an old lady now. I’m in bed by 10 p.m. I can’t do that anymore.” Us too, Natalie. Us too.

For those of you missing your daily dose of bizarre ever since Courtney Love quit Twitter, we present to you the next generation in online irrationality: Courtney Love’s VYou account. The Hole singer has already posted a video where Love attacks Kelly OsbourneÃ¢â‚¬Â¦whom she claims she saved from the brink of death on more than one occasion. “Kelly Osbourne and Joan Rivers called me a crackhead on the E! channel. Kelly knows I’m sober,” Courtney explains. “Kelly knows there’s no drugs allowed at my house. I think it’s really lame.” It’s not just the mean joke that irks Courtney, however: “This girl I know, Kelly Osbourne, I’ve saved her life twice. I’ve done CPR, I’ve put things in her boobs. [She was on] Oxycontin, cocaine, foaming at the mouth.” If it wasn’t for this video, we wouldn’t even know you had to put things in people’s boobs after they OD’ed. God bless you, social media platforms!
Given Osbourne’s rehab visits, we do agree that claiming someone looks an addict is like the pot calling the kettle super-high.Ã‚Â After declaring herself sober since October 2005, Love goes on to detail the massive amounts of drugs she takes, prescription and otherwise: Abilify, cocaine, a nice rosÃƒÂ©.Ã‚Â Courtney also mentions that Sharon Osbourne might think Love gave Jack Osbourne Oxycotin as a child. Can’t imagine why. Look Courtney, we’re sure Kelly didn’t mean to say you were a crackhead. She probably just meant you act like a crackhead. You know, ranting angrily in public, saying you don’t do drugs them listing all the drugs you do. That kind of thing. You’ll remember what it’s like when you make more videos. It’s like riding a bike…made out of craziness!
This has got to be a joke! Here’s a little background to this bizarre story. Willie Nelson was busted for pot possession (again) in November last year. The po-po stopped his tour bus at a check post in Louisiana after a “strong odor of marijuana was detected.” Willie’s case is in court now and apparently, the prosecutor will sic the singer with only a $100 fine on one strange condition. Willie has to sing “Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain” in court because apparently, that counts as community service these days! Lets break it down — Willie has to do what he normally does for living, in court because that’s “work” now.
Unfortunately for Willie, while the prosecutor’s clearly a fan, his courtroom performance may ultimately get him nowhere. The final decision will rest in the presiding judge’s hands and if he isn’t a fan of singing-for-freedom, then Willie faces up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Clark County’s Deputy D.A David Schubert is known to be pretty hardcore in court. When celebrities like Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton got busted for cocaine possession, Schubert was the one prosecuting them in Vegas. Mars and Hilton and the like are probably laughing their behinds off now, because Schubert was arrested for—wait for it— cocaine possession on Saturday night! That’s him in the glasses and the gray tie standing next to Mars in the photograph. Just screams “love to party,” doesn’t he?
Schubert’s already been released from the Clark County Detention Center, but he’s probably going to lay low for sometime, right? Seriously…how’s he going to send people to jail for coke now? But hey, in this town, guess you can’t turn your nose up at anyone (pun unintended).

Our stomachs ache from laughing so much at the idea of Russell Brand smashing dead animals with a hammer on-stage. Oh, no, sorry, we meant to write “throwing up.” Our stomachs ache from throwing up. Author Neil Strauss informed RadarOnline that Brand copped to mushing up deceased creatures as part of his early performance art. “I’d smash them up with a hammer and then throw them into the audience and go, ‘Why are you disgusted? I’ve just rearranged their atoms. They’re dead already. Nothing’s happened. You’re being shocked by nothing,’” the comedian explained. Because if you don’t give a standing ovation when someone screams and throws a dead chicken in your face, it’s probably because you just don’t “get it.” Last Comic Standing this ain’t!
While Brand was struggling with drug addiction and wasn’t yet a comic at the time, that doesn’t mean he didn’t crave applause, says Strauss. “He was clearly on drugs when he smashed the animals on stage. Also, the whole show was about shock value, because at the time he was hungry for attention because he had just started out,” he explains. So basically Russell Brand started out as Gallagher…of death. Call us squares, but we’ll take being sprayed with watermelon juice over decaying rat pieces any day, thankyouverymuch.
