Miley Cyrus has gone on record in support of gay rights in the past, but this time she went with a decidedly more permanent statement. Last Friday, the singer tweeted a photo of her new tattoo, an equal sign on her right ringer finger, with the caption “All LOVE is equal.” In a year where the “It Gets Better” videos have served as a very formal, very scripted (and, yes, very powerful) beacon of the gay rights landscape, Cyrus’s subtle nod is a quirky (and dare I even say refreshing?) political affirmation. If nothing else, she is, in her own way, breathing new life into the debate with the kind of nonchalance that only an 18-year-old can. Unfortunately for Miss Miley, announcing her new art didn’t turn out to be all peace, love, and rainbows. READ FULL STORY »

Despite the fact that she announced her split from fiancé Jesse James over Twitter on Tuesday and the season premiere of her reality series LA Ink – which airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. on TLC – -was going to chronicle their now-defunct engagement, Kat Von D really didn’t want to talk about the break-up. At least, not with the fun times gang over at Good Day LA.
After Jillian Barberie and Co. showed a clip from the new season of LA Ink that featured Von D showing James one of her (many) tattoos, the 29-year-old stormed off the set (or as she explained on Twitter, “I walked out because of your disrespectful intro you guys ‘snuck’ in.”) Von D also tweeted, “Dear Good Day L.A, Thanks for the waste of a perfectly good morning. Lack of compassion and respect for each other never fails to disappoint me.”
There is nothing worse than getting caught in between a couple, post-break-up, while they go back and forth with their “he said, she said” routine. (Actually, getting caught in between this would be worse. Way worse.)
So imagine our discomfort when Crystal Harris stopped by Howard Stern’s XM radio show on Tuesday to
plant irreversible images in our head bash the boat captain/magazine mogul. In addition to claiming that she’d never seen Hef naked because the 85-year-old rarely takes off his clothes (here’s an artist’s rendering of what he would probably look like), Harris said that sex with Hef only went for “like, two seconds.” The 24-year-old, who said she wasn’t turned on by the Playboy founder (jowls just aren’t for everyone) then meticulously articulated her post-traumatic Hef disorder for listeners, “Then I was just over it. Was like, ‘Ahhh.’ I was over it. I just, like, walked away.”
But Hef wasn’t going to take this lying down (not unless he had an orthopedic mattress or it was time for his 2 p.m. nap). READ FULL STORY »
Yesterday, Fabio challenged old Old Spice Guy Isaiah Mustafa to an Internet duel — appropriately named, “Mano a Mano in el Baño” — to determine who is the ultimate Old Spice Guy. After single-handedly resolving the NFL lockdown (or so he claims), Mustafa accepted. As of noon today, the dueling beefcakes have been puffing out their formidable chests in an attempt to one-up each other on the brand’s YouTube channel. Click through to see the full promo for this very special ad-vent and read the highlights so far. READ FULL STORY »
Roger Ebert’s Facebook account was shut down briefly this morning after people complained about his posts regarding Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who died Monday morning in a car accident along with his friend Zachary Hartwell after a night at a local West Chester, Pa., bar. “Facebook has removed my page in response, apparently, to malicious complaints from one or two jerks,” tweeted Ebert, “Facebook! My page is harmless and an asset to you. Why did you remove it in response to anonymous jerks? Makes you look bad.”
Facebook reinstated Ebert’s account after about an hour, and a spokesperson for the social network said the discipline action had been an error. READ FULL STORY »
Hours after Jackass star Ryan Dunn and another passenger were killed in an early morning car accident in eastern Pennsylvania yesterday, film critic and habitual tweeter Roger Ebert posted the news of his passing, with a link to the local NBC News report. Moments later, he followed with, “Friends don’t let jackasses drink and drive.”
Though the West Goshen Police Department’s accident report made no mention of alcohol as a cause of the accident, Dunn had posted a photo on his own Twitter account just hours before the crash that showed him and two friends drinking at a local bar. Though the manager of the bar told CNN, “He didn’t seem to be intoxicated at the time he left,” there’s no denying that Dunn was drinking and driving. READ FULL STORY »
You don’t have to be Dale Carnegie to know that you shouldn’t compare your boss, who can fire you, to Adolf Hitler. So when Transformers vixen Megan Fox told Wonderland magazine in 2009 that her director was like the infamous Nazi mass murderer, well, she was inevitably replaced for the franchise’s upcoming third film. Now, Bay is admitting the obvious, telling GQ that Fox’s departure had everything to do with the führer furor: “She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, ‘Fire her right now.’ ” READ FULL STORY »
Eminem’s at it again with the celebrity disses in “A Kiss,” a track off his forthcoming album Hell: The Sequel. But are they even that bad, compared to some of the more ridiculous s— he’s doled out? Below, I’ve listed some of the Chrysler enthusiast’s more egregious celeb disses. And it’s not even all of ‘em! (I know you guys have been on the edges of your seats waiting for my opinions on Eminem.)

Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office
She’s already a male lady
Wouldn’t f— her with her d—
The verdict’s in.
She must be heartbroken about that! READ FULL STORY »
The second-place Boston Red Sox open up a three-game set against the first-place New York Yankees tonight, which means two things. One, that a man wearing a Big Papi jersey in Penn Station this morning better be faster and tougher than the real Big Papi, or he won’t make it anywhere near the Bronx. And two, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski are due for Round 3 of their New Era shenanigans. Recall that last we saw the It’s Complicated co-stars, Baldwin had punched Krasinski in the face and urged him to get plastic surgery. So I don’t blame Krasinski for seeking revenge by billboarding Baldwin’s pooch. But much like the old Boston Cheers gang, who were always outclassed and outmaneuvered in their ongoing rivalry with Gary’s Old Towne Tavern, the Office star might be in over his head. This dog don’t hunt. READ FULL STORY »
Some say that Jay Leno hit bottom during his failed primetime show and the subsequent Conan O’Brien imbroglio. Which is really saying something for someone who used to crack skulls with Pat Morita. But now, he’s being accused of stealing jokes. From Fox News.
On Saturday night’s Red Eye, a wee-hours Fox News show hosted by Greg Gutfeld, ombudsman Andy Levy pointed out that Leno had made a joke on Thursday night that used virtually the same set-up and punchline as one Levy said on the air earlier in the week. Both bits were pegged to the news in California that a court ruling would require the state to free thousands of inmates from its prisons, leading both joke tellers to mention how this was great news for the Oakland Raiders!
