Nobody is above the law, not even the rich and famous! Even though we mostly just think of their cushy life style, a surprising number of stars have done time in the clink. And not just overnights from DUIs, either. We’re talking long stretches and serious sentences. Hard time, y’all!
A lot of celebrities had double duty on Saturday night as there were a number of Super Bowl parties happening in New Orleans, most notably the GQ Super Bowl Party with Lil Wayne performing and the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl, where Justin Timberlake brought Jay-Z onstage. The celebs at the earlier party were pretty casual, but they cleaned up quite nicely for the evening to-do. Except Josh Hutcherson and Chace Crawford, who showed up in denim and a baseball cap and a lot of facial scruff, respectively. They should have taken style cues from Ryan Kwanten and Matt Bomer who both nailed it in sharp suits.
Of course, our eyes were trained on one very gorgeous Ian Somerhalder who turned out in a simple black shirt and jeans. Simple … but perfect, as always. The two ladies in attendance also did quite nicely. Kate Upton slicked on some red lipstick, twisted her hair up in a messy updo and slid into some skinny black pants, a leather bomber jacket and a pair of dark cherry-pointed pumps. Can’t really go wrong with that, right? Hayden Panettiere also took on a three-piece combination but topped hers with a white blazer and beautifully ironed shiny hair. The piece de resistance was her neon orange pumps. It takes a lot to upstage Kate, but we think Hayden managed it. Have a look at our gallery below to see full-length pictures of everyone in attendance.

It’s grillz gone wild these days in Hollywood! We thought it was over back in ’06, but lately the teeth bling thing has been making a comeback in a huge way. We blame Ryan Lochte, who famously accepted his Olympic medals wearing an American flag-inspired grill on the stand. Just last night Rihanna stepped out to dinner wearing some metallic vampire fangs and crazy purple lipstick. Sure we’re used to seeing some extra gleam in Flavor Flav and Lil Wayne’s smiles, but that’s not all. Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, and even Jessica Simpson have experimented with the bold look over the years. Yes, grills aren’t just for badasses and Bond villains anymore, but they’ll still probably give you trouble at a medal detector. We wish they’d been in the 90s, because it would have totally made our braces years a lot more bearable! Oh well. Head on down to the gallery below to see 20 stars who’ve been rocking the gold in their teeth!

We’re used to seeing the most absolutely delicious photos of Ryan Lochte. Those chiseled abs, that million-dollar smile, those eyes that look right through to our souls…that happens for you guys too, right? We thought so. Well our boy Ry is turning 28 today! And what’s he doing to celebrate? Well, his run in the 2012 Olympics is over after receiving silver in the 200m individual medley and bronze in the 200m backstroke on Thursday, so he’ll be cheering on his fellow team USA competitors. Even though he calls his results in London just “a little above average,” he really does make us so proud. He is coming home with two golds, two silvers and one bronze, not to mention a “Call Me Maybe” parody and a tweet of support from his all time fave, Lil Wayne (maybe Weezy heard our plea.)
We have learned that Lochte may not be the best rep from men’s swimming to interview, but he is one of the most successful! On top of his collection of medals, Lochte also fancies himself a designer with the limited edition line of footwear that he put together with Speedo (be sure to check out the green, rhinestone-encrusted high-tops). But what’s one thing we love the most about Lochte? It’s how he can pull off the most ridiculous facial expressions and still be totally charming! Whether it’s in the pool, on deck, in an interview or at a shoot, Lochte has shown us just how hot he really is even when caught on camera in the silliest of ways.

There’s nothing more aw-worthy than seeing celebrities from different industries become fans of each other. Justin Bieber tweeted at U.S. Olympic swimmer, Missy Franklin today that he heard that she’s a fan of his. “Now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD!” and added the very adorable “#muchlove” tag. We wish we saw more of this celeb interaction! Athletes are glued to their headphones before competition to get pumped up in London and some Olympians have confessed their love for certain artists. What we’d like to see is these artists responding with support for the folks who are seriously earning their celebrity status this summer.
- Ryan Lochte loves Lil Wayne. How much so, you ask? Well, Wayne’s song “Sky’s the Limit” is on Lochte’s pump-up playlist. Not only that but Lochte’s dog’s name is Carter, named after a certain Dwayne Michael Carter, aka rapper Lil Wayne. Oh, yeah, and there are those grills.
- The Dream Team’s LeBron James loves Big K.R.I.T. James said that Big K.R.I.T’s song, “I Got This” “was one of [the Miami Heat's] theme songs this year.”
Ke$ha topped the list of our 20 Worst Celebrity Tattoos a few weeks back when she proudly displayed her inner lip ink reading “Suck It” on instagram. But now the dollar-signed-one might have some competition in Miley Cyrus, who was seen today showing off her new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired tattoo. We say “might,” because honestly we’re not sure how to feel about it. Body art inspired by our 26th president isn’t something we come across on a regular basis. On one hand, we guess it’s a pretty cool quote taken from a 1910 speech in which he said “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” But on the other hand…what? And furthermore, WTF? We know you’re just being Miley, but damn. Maybe she’s still feeling the patriotism from her 4th of July festivities. Head on down to the gallery below to see more celebrity tattoos that left us scratching our heads!

Ke$ha, you’ve won again. You always do. Though never with a disturbing orifice tattoo before. “New tattoo!” the singer proclaimed on Instagram, displaying both her new “Suck It!” inner lip tattoo and what appears to be a gold toof. While we need some time to wrap our heads around why and to what purpose Ke$ha would get the inside of her mouth inked (Is it a command? To whom? Is it a reminder? It’s a reminder, isn’t it?), we only needed to see the photo for a millisecond to crown her queen of the bad celebrity tattoos, joining the likes of Gucci Mane‘s ice cream cone face ink and Hayden Panettiere‘s misspelled torso tattoo.
Don’t feel bad, every other famous with an awful tattoo! We probably just don’t know about your mouth art yet. Let us know, please; it’s what Instagram is for. In the meantime, everyone else can take a gander at our worst celebrity tattoo gallery. With Ke$ha at the lead, it looks like ya’ll need to start upping your bad tattoo game…

Lil Wayne doesn’t like anyone coming between him and his NBA courtside seats. According to the New Orleans syrup sipping rapper, he was denied entrance into the Spurs vs. Thunder game in Oklahoma City on Memorial Day weekend. He tweeted his frustrations saying, “Was going to go to the Thunder game tonight but was denied by the team to be in their arena. Wow. Smh. Go Spurs!” That’s great sportsmanship, Wayne. When you don’t get your way switch your support to the other team. That’s mature.
Although a rep for OKC released a statement saying Weezy wasn’t denied, rather he didn’t get in because he didn’t have a ticket, Wayne says last night he was treated horribly, again, by OKC. He tweeted, “Again I was treated like sh!t by the Thunder arena staff…dam..I hope da Heat beat da dog sh!t out em!!” Oh, Weezy F. Baby. We don’t know whether to believe Wayne or the team’s rep at this point, but we have a few theories on the rather strange coincidence of Wayne having two “bad” experiences with OKC. Read more…
Friday’s come early this week, because today is officially the day that Nicki Minaj drops her latest album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded! The record features the hit song “Starships”, as well as guest spots from hip-hop royalty like Lil Wayne, Cam’ron, Nas and more. A new album always brings new performances, and hopefully those will include more of Nicki’s crazy faces! In addition to her booty and her way-out style, the singer’s otherworldly facial expressions have become her trademark. We’re never totally sure what emotion she’s trying to convey (surprise? anger?) but it’s always fierce! So in honor of her latest album, let’s take a look back at some of Nicki’s most insane faces of all time. Enjoy!

Jessica Simpson has made a second career out of ripping farts and making barfs and telling us all about them, so why should the gift of motherhood change her beautiful openness in any way? “I feel like I have a bowling ball sitting on my hoo-ha!” Jessica laughed about her massive baby belly on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! last night. “Apparently I have a lot of amniotic fluid, so whenever my water breaks it will be like a fire hydrant!” Annnnnnd does anyone want the rest of our Jamba Juice? No, seriously, we aren’t going to finish it. Or any other liquid. Ever again.

Now, keeping that hilariously graphic mental image in mind, please listen to the (NSFW) verse Drake wrote specifically for his new GQ interview, during which he discusses his…uh…special relationship with Lil Wayne. “It’s just the industry’s small, we all lust for the same women,” he raps. “You know the ones we saw before we came in it, I know we aint tripping/ I know I got a couple things that Lil Wayne dipped in, ain’t ashamed to admit it.” Drake! Come on! First you romance us with wine and a waterfall, now you’re acting straight-up disgusting. We have to go take a shower forever, but in the meantime, tell us: which celeb story is more TMI?
