As anyone who has seen Paula Abdul on TV can attest, the former American Idol judge has, at times, appeared to hit the bottle—booze or pill, take your pick. But in an interview with CBS this weekend, Paula opened up about her loopiness, defending herself against claims that she’s a drunk or a dummy. Paula says that it’s the misconception that she’s not intelligent that hurts the most. She says “Having a brain—that’s a concept, yes, with Paula Abdul. I have a brain.” She then discusses the fact that she isn’t a user or abuser, saying “I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t use recreational drugs.” See, she is smart. A dumb person wouldn’t qualify what kind of substances they use, so at least she’s open to admitting that she uses other kinds of non-recreational drugs. Check out the video and tell us what you think: is Paula just naturally “goofy”, or is she artificially enhanced?
Apparently when Charlie Sheen scoffed “A guy has one bad night and everyone goes insane, panics,” he meant everyone but the NYPD. Earlier today, Charlie Sheen was cleared of criminal charges stemming from that October 25 hotel room trashing, when we all learned more than we wanted to about how Charlie conducts his personal life. Following the incident Sheen’s companion for the evening, porn star Capri Anderson, pressed charges against the actor, alleging that Sheen held her against her will on their room at the Plaza Hotel while on a drug-fueled rant. Or as Charlie might put it, “literally every Monday night.”
Sheen was also not charged at any point with cocaine use or ransacking his hotel room, despite the fact that he did so much of both. Sheen then went back to his role on Two And A Half Men, where he is allowed to interact with a child and be broadcast into millions of decent people’s homes. [Photo: Getty Images]
This girl’s got the golden touch: everything she’s seen with just flies off the shelves. She sells CDs, she sells merchandise, and now Miley Cyrus is responsible for the rocketing sales of salvia divinorum. What a superstar she is!
Ever since Miley’s bong-hitting video went viral, TMZ reports that dealers in L.A are having a field day. Apparently, the drug that Miley got all happy 18 with has been selling three times the normal amount, with people requesting “the stuff Miley was smoking.” That’s some serious pulling power (no pun intended), which should make dad Billy Ray Cyrus feel a little better. Now, if only prosecuted pothead Willie Nelson was that lucky. Unfortunately, he didn’t just turn 18, doesn’t writhe around on stage, and doesn’t have an alter ego called Hannah Montana.
While the rest of us are giggling up a storm at Miley Cyrus’s bong video, we forgot the one person who might not be so thrilled to see his little girl publicly tripping on a hallucinogenic herb: her dad. Billy Ray Cyrus tweeted about Miley smoking salvia this afternoon. “Sorry guys. I had no idea. Just saw this stuff for the first time myself. Im so sad. There is much beyond my control right now,” explained Billy Ray. See, this is why dads shouldn’t have access to Twitter! Oh, also, why you shouldn’t do drugs on camera. We mean, ever! Don’t do drugs ever!
These past few months have not been kind to Miley’s dad, as the “so much” beyond his control could also refer to his pending divorce from wife Tish Cyrus after her rumored infidelity. You know what would reeeeeally help you relax during these tough times, Billy Ray? Sorry, we’re just kidding! Seriously, don’t do drugs. [Photo: Getty Images]
From the angelic world of Taylor Swift’s birthday bash plans, we head over the tracks to Miley Cyrus country. A few days after her 18th birthday Miley decided to do some serious bong-rips in her LA home, and her friends were on hand to “document the s— out of it” on video….and then sell it to TMZ. What are friends for? According to the source, the pipe was filled with the herb salvia, a mild hallucinogenic which is legal in most states.
That must be some primo “salvia” because Miley is knocked flat on her back after taking a hit. “I’m having a little bit of a bad trip,” she says to the camera. Oh no! You hear that, kids?! Bad trip! And no wonder, because she apparently started to hallucinate her ex boyfriend, “Is that a f–ing Liam [Hemsworth] look-alike?!” she asks about a random dude. “Am I tripping?” Talk about a bummer. But all’s well that ends well, as our Miley dissolves into the fiercest fit of giggles and gibberish we’ve ever seen. What’s the final verdict, Miley? “I wanna get more of that s—.” They grow up so fast.
This story can’t be told in just one toke, erm, take. Apparently, country music star Willie Nelson was arrested for possession of pot this weekend. He was on his tour bus en route to Austin, Texas from California when the Border Patrol police found the high-herbs on him at a checkpoint. Not the best way to start the morning, because he was supposedly busted at 9 am. No word on whether he had his morning hit of …coffee, by then.
Willie’s bail of $2,500 bond was posted the same day, so no harm, no foul. Besides, he’s used to being caught with “stuff” on his person. Never-learns-his-lesson-Nelson was busted in 2006 for pot and mushrooms when his tour bus was stopped in Louisiana because, as a spokesperson explained, “The tour bus was stopped on a common interstate vehicle inspection, and when the trooper approached the bus door a strong odor of marijuana was detected…” He was charged then, as he was this time, for a misdemeanor.
Next time, Willie, make sure you open the windows, or a light a candle or something. Especially when you know the po-po are a stop away. Duh.

Looks like Demi Lovato‘s rehab stint won’t be a short one. Denying rumors to the contrary, representatives for the star say she won’t be leaving rehab before the Thanskgiving holiday. “She remains committed first and foremost to her treatment. Demi has made tremendous progress to date, but understands that she has more work to do.” Family will “be there to celebrate Thanksgiving with her,” however.
Despite claims Lovato used cocaine before her violent meltdown, her handlers continue to blame “emotional and physical issues” for her need for treatment. Good to see at least one young star is willing to put the time in to tackle her problems…Lindsay.

Poor Demi Lovato. You get in one fistfight with a backup dancer and all of a sudden, you ship off to rehab and all your secrets come out. Ever since Lovato checked herself into a treatment center, rumors have swirled that she’s a cutter with an eating disorder, she’s upset that her ex, Joe Jonas, is dating Ashley Greene, and as of today, she apparently has a raging coke habit and is dating Wilmer Valderrama, who is twelve years her senior.
The New York Daily News writes that Lovato’s been turning to drugs and booze lately, ever since her split with Jonas. Brian Payne, a college student in Texas who said Lovato partied with him and his friends last year said “She was doing line after line like a pro – and she was 17 at the time. I just remember her doing it [cocaine] as if she had been doing it for a long time. It didn’t seem like something new to her.” Other sources have claimed Lovato was ” partying” on the night of her altercation with her dancer, which could mean anything, but makes drug use more of a possibility.
As for her relationship with Valderrama, whose lust for the younger ladies is a little creepy at this point (remember when he talked about taking Mandy Moore‘s virginity on Howard Stern? Yeah, gross), the two met while filming a PSA for earthquake relief in March and were romantically linked as far back as May. Valderrama’s rep denies a relationship, but a source says Demi would display photos of the two of them while she was on tour and would introduce him to people as her boyfriend.
We hope that Demi gets the help she needs for whatever demons she’s battling, but in the meantime, let’s just take a look back at Wilmer’s past “demons”, a.k.a. the very young ladies he’s dated. Ironically, he does seem to have a positive effect on the careers of most of the girls he’s been with, but it’s still creepy that while he gets older, the girls seem to get younger.

Charlie Sheen is responding to the whole cocaine/porn star/hotel trashing bender that’s kept him in the news for the last two weeks. He’s back at work on the Two and a Half Men set and clearly nothing fazes him, considering his take on his crazy-pants behavior. As always we’d like to insert our opinion on the actor’s mess of a life, so here are Charlie’s recent comments on the incident and our response.
Charlie Sheen: “IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not panicking.”
Fablife: Ã‚Â Have you lost your damn mind?
CS: “A guy has one bad night and everyone goes insane, panics.”
FL: Ã‚Â Have you lost your damn mind?
CS: “If you have expensive taste you have to be prepared for expensive losses. It is what it is.”
FL: Ã‚Â Have you lost your damn mind?
This is how Charlie rolls. Hookers, porn stars, drugs, alcohol: it’s all good with him because he reckons he doesn’t have a problem. Confirmation that, yes, he’s lost his damn mind.
We’re really feeling for Demi Lovato. Since the start of her rehab stint, so much disturbing information had been emerging ranging from her alleged cutting and eating disorder to her horrific experiences with bullying in middle school. And honestly, dealing with an ex-boyfriend is hard enough, but to go with him on tour and his new girlfriend? Super harsh!
People is reporting that Demi apparently got into a physical altercation with a female dancer, which was the motivation for her going to rehab. Their source explains, “As she did on most nights off, Demi invited her band, dancers and her parents to dinner. Afterward, she broke off with a very small group. When tour management found out about this, they talked to the people involved, including Demi. Demi reacted badly and perceived that someone on tour had told on her.” The story also reports that her stepdad, Eddie De La Garza, wasn’t too happy with the night’s events, because the Demi and her small entourage had been partying.
Our question is, what exactly did the partying involve? We’re not trying to imply anything here, but for someone to get pissed off because she was getting some downtime, sounds a little suspicious to us. The spy doesn’t really explain what the “very small group” got up to, and why her handlers got so pissed at the 18-year-old. And for her to then fly off the handle like that at the dancer (Demi felt that she had told on them), is again, kinda weird. So what actually went down that night to have invited such an adverse reaction?
