Celebrity Gossip: The wake of the storm

The streets of Hollywood were eerily quiet this week in the wake of the VMAs, but celebrities still managed to make enough noise for gossipers to take notice.

Miley Cyrus remains delusional and unrepentant about the child molester’s wet dream performance she gave America at the VMAs. In an interview with MTV this past week she even went so far as to suggest her performance should be viewed as a noteworthy addition to entertainment history on par with pop legends Madonna and Britney Spears, “I don’t pay attention to the negative because I’ve seen this play out so many times. How many times have we seen this play out in pop music? Madonna’s done it. Britney’s done it. Every VMA performance … that’s what you’re looking for; you’re wanting to make history.”

Cyrus may be taking her own words “forget the haters” a little bit too seriously. The ‘twerk it out’ songstress’ fiancé Liam Hemsworth is allegedly ‘mortified’ by her performance and seriously considering the bachelor life, “He is over her and wants to make a clean break,” an insider tells Us Weekly. “No more back and forth.”

Apparently, Cyrus isn’t phased. Her twitter continues to produce carefree photos of the star kissing teddy bears and claims of rapper French Montana as her ‘baby daddy.’ Is the twenty-year-old ex-Disney queen soon to be single? Paparazzi and bloggers stand with bated breath to find out…

Seven steps further down the progression in child stars gone wrong, Amanda Bynes managed to squeak out a few deranged statements from within the psychiatric ward she is currently being kept in-patient at. She tweeted simply on Saturday, “I love Drake” before confirmation was made that her stay at UCLA psychiatric facilities would be further extended. The prolonged nature of her treatment does not spell well for the ex-“All That” comedian. Bynes has been officially diagnosed with schizophrenic symptoms that may cause necessary hospitalization for the rest of the year, according to Perez Hilton. It doesn’t seem like we’ll be seeing Amanda with any new colored wigs or piercings in public for a little longer than expected.

On the converse, Lamar Odom apparently emerged from rehab last Thursday after only one day of admittance, as told by People. TMZ goes on to claim that Odom’s dependence is so overwhelming that even his crack-cocaine dealer is afraid of his usage. The gossip site reports that Odom’s dealer has refused to continue supplying the NBA star with drugs because his demands for it are ‘insatiable.’ “Last week, Lamar was insatiable…calling incessantly and demanding more and more crack. His go-to dealer apparently got scared enough to cut Lamar off,” an insider told TMZ. We can only wonder what the Kardashian clan is making of all of this.


Finally, last week offered one glimmer of positive entertainment in the long-awaited release of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” film adaptation cast. Much to the surprise of fans small name actors Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam were announced to play the lead roles in the S&M love story. This choice has caused quite a stir in readers of the novel who hoped for stars Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer to play the virginal sub Anastasia Steele and control-freak dom Christian Grey. Fans have even gone so far as to create an online petition on website demanding a recasting of Bledel and Bomer that has already received over 72,000 signatures. The petition states, “Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE.” Whether or not these cries from the fans will reach the ears of “Fifty Shades” movie producers or not will be seen in the next upcoming weeks.
