We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge and Robert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
Miley Cyrus is a singer, actress, and clearly a baller (and we’re not just talking about which end of the anatomically correct cake she likes to eat). The Disney star dropped a stack or two, specifically $127k on a new ride last week at the Mercedes Benz dealership in Encino, California, according to TMZ. Miley is now whipping a 2012 white SL550 convertible, which she apparently paid for in full. But Liam Hemsworth’s girlfriend isn’t the first Hollywood PYT to splurge on a car. All of the young and famous want to ride in style these days — whether it’s a pink Bentley for the Barbie of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj, or a Batmobile for Mr. Bieber. Here are the 10 most expensive sets of wheels owned by our favorite celebs:
Nearly a month after sustaining serious injuries while on vacation, Sean Kingston’s hospital stay is over as of this week. Hmm, Kingston out and (nearly) ready to party right before the Fourth of July? Coincidence, or divine providence from the god of summer jams? Really makes you think…
Despite the fact that Sean Kingston’s jet ski accident left the “Letting God (Dutty Love)” singer with a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs, Kingston was able to leave the hospital with his mother on Tuesday. Earlier this week, Sean Kington’s Twitter was updated in the first time since before the crash with a photo of the singer and the message, “”Feeling alot better! GOD IS GREAT! Thanks for all the prayers and support! Love you ALL!” Sean is expected to make a full recovery, provided he fills his doctor’s prescription and takes zero jet ski ride(s) per day for the rest of his life.
It would be a tragedy if the singer of some of the sweetest summer jams had to spend the next three months in traction, but luckily it seems like Sean Kingston’s accident isn’t keeping him down for long. “Sean Kingston continues to be hospitalized at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami,” said the performer’s publicist Joseph Carozza in a statement. “His condition has been upgraded to serious. Sean is breathing on his own and walked for the first time this morning. Sean thanks his friends, family and fans for their outpouring of prayers and well wishes.” During Sean Kingston’s jet ski accident, the “Beautiful Girls” singer sustained a fractured wrist, broken jaw and water in his lungs; the singer crashed into a bridge on his Ski Doo last Sunday, according to an accident report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Sure, getting sand inside a cast or drinking a daiquiri through a wired-shut jaw isn’t an optimal way to beat the hear, but we’re relieved and happy to hear Sean is steadying getting better.

Cassandra Sanchez, a passenger on Sean Kingston‘s jet ski when he collided with a bridge in Miami Beach this weekend, tells TMZ that she warned the singer he was driving too fast, yelling at him to stop. “Both jet skis pulled out of the dock at the same time and we were going so fast we just blasted past them. When we turned a corner and crashed…they were so far behind us they didn’t even see us crash.” Sanchez said she believes he tried to turn away from the bridge, but failed. After the crash, Kingston was “coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff” as friends tried to help them, with the singer finally saying “I’m hurting, I’m hurting” when he was able to speak. A Coast Guard rescuer also says Kingston told him “I’m going to be OK.” Authorities do not believe alcohol played a part in the crash.
Sanchez, who only received minor rib injuries, said Kingston, currently in critical but stable condition, “can’t really talk” due to a tube in his throat, “but he is lucid and understands what’s going on.” Kingston’s rep had no update this morning, but said his family was grateful for everyone’s prayers and support. See the gallery below to see the warm thoughts celebrity friends like Justin Bieber have shared about Kingston (pictured above with his mother Janice), following his tragic accident.

This is such awful news to start the week with. 21 year old hip-hop star Sean Kingston was in a terrible jet skiing accident last evening around 6pm, in Miami. He is currently in critical condition in Jackson Memorial hospital in Miami Beach, along with the female passenger who was on board with him when the accident happened. Apparently, Sean, with his female friend, crashed his jetski into a bridge and were rescued by passerby’s.
The cause of the crash is still being investigated and TMZ was told that alcohol is not believed to have been involved. Sean’s spokesperson has so far stated, “Sean Kingston was in an accident today. No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes.” We’ll keep you posted on what happens. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.
UPDATE: TMZ is reporting that Sean is out of the trauma unit and has been moved into Intensive Care. He still is in critical condition but has been stabilized.

While Snooki‘s 23rd birthday isn’t actually until tomorrow (she was born the same day as Miley Cyrus!), the Jersey Shore star celebrated in advance at NY’s Pacha this weekend, joined by pals like J-Woww, Sean Kingston and one glorious cake at the condom company-sponsored bash. Considering how much life, laughter and love Snooks has crammed into her first 23 years, who can imagine what she’ll accomplish over the next 23? And who would want to imagine Snooki at 46 anyway? See photos from the party in the gallery below.

We’re guessing Sean Kingston isn’t going to be singing “Beautiful Girls” for a while, or at least not to the unnamed women accusing him of sexual assault. TMZ reports that Sean wasÃ‚Â partying at Seattle’s Crowne Plaza Hotel Sunday night when, according to police, two intoxicated women showed up at the same hotel room Sean was in.
Apparently after one of the women made “aggressive” advances toward Sean so he left the room, and the two women continued their friskiness with other men at the party. But both the manager at the Crowne Plaza and the fire department confirmed to TMZ that an incident happened that caused the two women to be transported to the hospital where they were tested for Rufinol and had rape tests conducted.
Sources told TMZ that police are not interested in talking to Sean anymore because they don’t believe the accusations have any credibility, but at least one of the women is still threatening to file a civil suit against him. The truth – or an utter fabrication?
With hot young stars getting younger and younger, it’s worth knowing which ones you can be attracted to without committing a mental felony. While Miley Cyrus is still off-limits, Vanessa Hudgens is fair game. Fantasize about the Michael Cera of Superbad all you want, but crush on the guy circa Arrested Development and we’re going to have to call Dateline NBC. To help your imagination stay more Woody Allen than Roman Polanski, here’s the names of ten young stars who lost their jailbait status in 2008. Only one more year, Jamie Lynn Spears fans!
