You would think that more than one run-in with police and some damage to his Ferrari would actually make Justin Bieber realize that lending his car out might be a bad idea.
But then, that would mean the possible sizzurp loving star would actually be thinking rationally.
Instead, he loaned his Ferrari to rapped friend Lil Za (again), who promptly went and got picked up by police (again) on Saturday, one day after it first happened.
According to an eye witness, the car pulled up to a Chipotle around noon in downtown Los Angeles when Za dropped off a female passenger and then took off. The witness says he saw the car make a u-turn … and moments later, cops pulled the car over.
The witness says Za was given a ticket and, after about 20 minutes, sent on his way.
Of course, Justin himself is no better: he was caught speeding] away in his white Lamborghini in Beverly Hills hours after Za was busted.
Maybe none of these morons should have access to cars. But of course, no one’s listening to proper logic.

Well, that… didn’t escalate at all.
Seems like Frank Ocean is preferring to choose peace over litigation as he posted on his Tumblr that he would not press charges against Chris Brown and his posse for laying the smackdown on him and his crew in a recording studio parking lot.
“As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer”, the 25-year-old shared. “I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.”
While his way is definitely a respectable option, I suppose I have to be the one to question why Chris once again is allowed to get away with violence as opposed to rightfully being charged in his continued anger-filled actions.
More after the jump.
In a surprising turn, Ocean’s music producer Michael Uzowuru shared his side of the story during that night via a blog (which has, of course, since been deleted) where he claims that Chris tried to “beat the living s**t” out of him over that parking space, coming at him from nowhere once confronted and even shoving Frank into a “candle display laced with glass”.
“I don’t know what type of demons Chris is facing”, he wrote ,”but I hope he clears them all and finds a new life rooted in love and light.”
More like finding a “new life” rooted in prison and orange jumpsuits.
Or not — considering he’s getting away with putting his hands on someone else.

Guess someone forgot in football that you’re gonna have some unwanted body contact.
Rapper Lil Wayne didn’t really take well to losing a charity match at the DirecTV Celeb Beach Bowl on Saturday in New Orleans.
Following the game, he was interviewed by E! correspondent (and fellow team player) Alicia Quarles, when he pretty much blamed his loss on a camera man pushing him and even touched on race before cursing everyone out and storming off like a five-year-old.
“I don’t like to be touched by people when I don’t tell to touch me… so I’m gonna get out of the building, because if I touch someone I go to jail, because they’re not the color of me…”
Yeah, he went there, y’all. And kept on going, too. Check it out for yourself after the jump.

Retired porn actress and hot mess Octomom (Nadya Suleman) had a huge scare over the weekend when she lost one of her fourteen children and couldn’t find the little one, no matter where she looked.
On Thursday, cops rushed to her home when she freaked out that one of her 7-year-old sons hadn’t been dropped off by his school bus at the time he was supposed to.
The school was called and were confused considering they had called the bus driver, who claims they actually saw Octo pick up the child from the bus.
When cops finally arrived, they realized it was all for naught: the little one was sleeping in his room, safe and sound and had been there the entire time.
Suleman says that someone else must’ve dropped him off.
And in case you’re wondering, yes, it’s happened before — in 2008, she lost track of one of her kids, who turned out to be with their grandmother.
Mother of the millennium, folks!

Damn, little dude; I understand being 18 and all, but slow it down!
Seems like Justin Bieber is definitely kind of losing it lately. The young star is not only still getting caught with weed in his grasp, but there are new photos circulating around of the young star sitting near some “sizzurp” — also known as codeine.
The weed stuff is really nothing new — although him smoking some outside of an L.A. home with rapper buddy Lil Za is (don’t ask me who gives them these names — and yes, that’s him in the pic with the singer above) — but the new pics of him at a party drinking out of a “double cup” (which is apparently “a known style of consuming sizzurp which was made popular by Lil Wayne”) is quite the new and surprising development.
In one of the photos, Bieber is drinking out of a double cup. Sources connected to Justin adamantly deny he uses the drug. Based on multiple recent photos, however, it’s pretty obvious he smokes pot. In the pics, we don’t see anyone present actually consuming the drug.
Considering he’s sort of a big thing among a younger audience, whether he was drinking or not — the boy is being pretty dumb.
Also, he still isn’t getting the lesson about who to loan his cars out to — turns out this Lil Za got into a run in with cops after being caught driving in the Biebs’ ride without a license early Friday morning.
Really good gang of people he’s hanging out with there. Dumb ass.

Very sad weekend here in New York City.
Former mayor Ed Koch, whose jovial spirit and catch phrase of “How am I doing?” to every New Yorker he managed to pass by during his 3 turns in office, passed away early yesterday after many illnesses. He was 88 years old.
Koch served in the United States House of Representatives from 1969-1977 and three terms as mayor of New York City from 1978-1989. He’s credited with rescuing the city from dire financial straits during his time in charge.
I don’t remember too much about his time in office; I was way too young there… but whenever I did catch him on my screen, he always had a positive demeanor, seemed proud of his city and definitely was a person who had no fear in speaking his mind.
The life long bachelor, who many believed was gay, spoke about it a couple of times in his career, but the best quote might possibly one that was never meant to be heard.
Check out a recently unearthed VH1 documentary clip of him speaking about the whispers after the jump.
He will be missed.

The intense conclusion to Ronaiah Tuiasosopo’s interview with Dr. Phil aired yesterday and while even the host ended the show with telling the viewers that it was up to them to believe the hoaxer’s sincerity, what was actually said and done was pretty crazed.
In the hour-long closer:
Ronaiah revealed that he had been molested and raped for years, beginning at age 12, at the hands of a family friend; a pastor and youth minister: ‘I felt that I couldn’t do things, accomplish things, pursue things, live out as Ronaiah,” Tuiasosopo said. ”And I felt the need to create this (the “Lennay” character). It has everything to do with what I went through as a child.” It was also explained that it has been his only sexual experiences — hence the confusion about being gay from part 1.
he never told his parents, especially his father — because he thought he’d lose him again (his dad, Titus expressed that because of his career (oddly enough, as a football player), he was out of his child’s life for many of his early years).
his parents were asked straight out how they would react with their child was actually gay: “He is still my son, and we love him unconditionally,” his father said.
But the craziest revelation? Oh, you gotta head after the jump for that — because it’s still blowing my mind a day later!
So of course, the main question was who was the actual voice behind “Lennay”; the one who had managed to convince Manti Te’o of “her” existence.
Many believed it could’ve been a cousin of Roniah’s… but through a “recreation” of some voice mails and some high-tech investigative work, it turned out it was actually Ronaiah himself.
All the laboratories reported that Tuiasosopo’s false voice matched Kekua’s. (His normal speaking voice did not.) One lab reported that Tuiasosopo was “a true talent,” presenting vocal skills they’d not seen before.

Just when I was beginning to miss her, look who made her triumphant return!
It’s been a moment since we’ve heard from the crazy that is Amanda Bynes (actually, it was way back in September), but have no fear — the former actress is still doing what she does best: being a huge mess.
Turns out she had to move out of her NYC apartment recently after the landlord threatened to throw her out for pretty much making the place smell like nothing but weed 24/7.
We’re told management made the decision after getting several complaints of marijuana smoke coming from her apartment — “morning, noon and night.” Sources say she was also seen smoking weed in the hallways.
FYI — it’s a non-smoking building.
Rather than fight or complain, she simply decided to blaze up pack up her stuff and move on out.
Let’s hope she wasn’t driving herself, though — we all know how that usually turns out.

Alright, so we’re all just a little bit tired of Beyoncé throwing her constant announcements about her Super Bowl halt time show in our faces every other moment and truth be told, this is probably the last I’ll even mention it (until Monday when I share the actual performance), but this was a moment that just couldn’t pass.
As you all may remember, the world went into a firestorm earlier in the week when it was revealed that the superstar possibly was lip syncing while performing the National Anthem at the Presidential Inauguration. She had been pretty mum on speaking about it (which is funny enough considering how much she wanted to talk about the halftime show instead), but rather than continue on with the “didn’t she or did she”, the classy woman did one better.
During a conference for the upcoming halftime show and game, she walked on stage and asked the reporters in the audience to stand up momentarily while she proved once and for all there was nothing wrong with her voice — and broke out into the Star Spangled Banner acapella — bringing cheers and massive applause within the hall.
When she officially blew everyone away, she only had one thing to say: “Any questions?”
Pure class! She then admitted that due to having no rehearsal time for the highly important event, she chose to let the “backing tape” do the hard work and promised it wouldn’t be like that come Sunday.
“Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound check, I did not feel comfortable taking the risk … so I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.”
Let’s be real — even if she does, we know the girl can sing a damn phone book!
Check out the awesome moment after the jump!

Well, this officially went from kind of funny to kind of sad.
The man behind “Lennay Kekua”, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo pretty much came clean with the entire crazy story that tied him to ex-Notre Dame football player Manti Te’o on Dr. Phil yesterday, but it turned into a huge other mess when he admitted that not only was he in love with Manti, but he felt that he “suffered” from homosexuality and was desperately hoping to be “cured”.
“If you look at this situation and everything that I’ve been through, I would say yeah I’m gay. But honestly I’m so confused”, he stated during the sit down.
“It takes a lot of courage to recover from homosexuality and this type of thing and coming back to your real life. As hard of a task it is, I’m going to do all I can to live right.”
Obviously someone is not living right.
Dr. Phil obviously saw this and promised to get him some kind of help in the future.
“I have so much to say to you about what you just said”, he responded as heartfelt as possible, “because a lot of it bothers me so much. But we will talk about that another time.”
As someone who has dealt with issues like these from other people way more times than I’d like to admit to, I truly hope he gets the help he obviously needs.
Check out the interview clip after the jump.

Throughout the craziness in our everyday world, we sometimes miss out on a great opportunity. But if we’re really lucky, the world notices us and helps us get it after all.

It’s mostly silent, but what words don’t say, the beautiful story will.

So you think the entire story behind Manti Te’o's fake “girlfriend” is the most confusing thing you’ve ever bore witness to? Try telling that to Dr. Phil.
As previously mentioned, the Oprah tag-along got first dibs on the interview with the man behind the hoax, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. But during the sit-down (which is set to air in a few days, the Hawaiian behind “Lennay Kekua” admitted that he fell in love with the ex-Notre Dame player, but wasn’t exactly sure if that made him gay.
Dr. Phil dropped by the Today Show this morning to give some tidbits.
“Here we have a young man that fell deeply, romantically in love,” Phil said of Ronaiah.
“I ask him straight up … was this a romantic relationship with you? And he says, ‘Yes.’”
Phil continued … “I said, are you then, therefore, gay? And he says, ‘Well, when you put it that way, yes.’”
Phil says Ronaiah then “caught himself” and said, “I am confused.”
When the person causing the confusion is confused himself, you know there’s some serious craziness going on there!
Phil did express that Ronaiah came completely clean about the entire thing, but he blamed it all on things from his past that left him “damaged”.
Check out the “damage” after the jump.

I do believe we all now officially have the OK to no longer give a damn about these two, which is all fine with me.
Rihanna decided that maybe it was somebody’s business to know the full deal with her reconnection with Chris Brown and sat down with Rolling Stone to share her frame of mind with getting back with her former attacker.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she told the mag. ”I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
If you can handle even more of her thoughts, check on after the jump.
It’s hard to feel for her when she’s saying this now and yet in interview after interview, she spoke a lot differently, but whatever.
She goes on to share that she realizes that the view from everyone else in the world doesn’t make their reunion the “the cutest puzzle in the world”, but that we don’t see what actually goes on behind closed doors (unless it’s all over Instagram), but whatever.
“You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about s—. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
As for Chris losing it and going after her again, Riri claims she has a total handle on that.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of f—ing up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
Obviously, this took place before the whole Frank Ocean thing. But if you’re wondering what Chris has to say about all of this?
Well, too bad (or too good, if you’re tired of them as I am): Chris decided to officially make his Instagram private, placing the blame on “social media [which] takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I’m detaching myself from that world”.
Yeah, he’s special, alright. If only he could truly detach himself from Earth…

You would think all of the mention would go toward the Ravens and 49er’s for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, but let’s be real — once you heard Beyoncé was going to be a part of it, that was all of the interest you needed.
Bringing out even more of the hype, the “Bootylicious” one shared a new promo shot via her Tumblr/official page of her in a referee’s outfit and looking amazing.
Still no words on the reunion rumors of Destiny’s Child during the performance, but at this point, I just wanna see what she’s bringing!

The man who has somehow seen more naked people then most of us will ever see in life is in critical condition in a L.A. hospital today.
Porn star legend Ron Jeremy drove himself to Cedars-Sinai on Tuesday evening, complaining of severe chest pains. During the examination, doctors found that the man affectionately known as “The Hedgehog” had suffered an aneurysm near his heart.
His manager says his condition worsened while at the facility and he was transferred to the ICU to be prepared for immediate surgery.
Jeremy has starred in over 2000 X-rated films, but is also known outside of his main occupation, appearing in many non-pornographic movies and series, such as VH1′s The Surreal Life back in 2004.
Here’s hoping for a non-hard recovery (he’d appreciate the pun).

There’s being friendly and then, there’s when it bites you in the ass.
You would think Justin Bieber might’ve learned already that allowing his rapper buddy, Lil’ Twist to drive his expensive Ferrari wouldn’t be a good idea considering the last time he did, a paparazzo was accidentally killed and all, but he did so again anyway and Twist caused a bit of damage to it.
About $8,000 to $10,000 worth, to be precise.
He attempted to barrel out of the Four Seasons hotel’s garage and somehow wreck it to the point where it needed to be repaired. However, in a weird twist (so to speak) the Four Seasons is footing the bill for the fix and hopes to keep it’s “lucrative relationship” with the Believe star.
Um… if they’re both musicians, doesn’t his friend have enough money to get his own damn car? Or even take the bus? Or *shudders* walk his ass to where he needs to be?

Someone’s getting their “suit and tie” ready for music’s biggest night.
Justin Timberlake is the latest name announced to be performing at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards in a little over a week, which will be the first time in 4 years that he has done so.
He seems to be in some decent company: Taylor Swift, The Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Carrie Underwood, Jack White and Rihanna (who seemed to remember she actually had a job other than being around Chris Brown) are also set to hit the stage.
The Grammys will air live at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Feb. 10 on CBS.
In related news, Justin’s third album, The 20/20 Experience has a tentative release date of March 19th… and today is also his birthday!
Sounds like a good start to the year! Happy 32nd, Justin!

Hey everyone, did you hear about Beyoncé performing at this year’s halftime show for the Super Bowl?
I know, right? Total shocker — it’s not like we had any sort of notice whatsoever.
Well, in case you didn’t know, she is — and the girl is showing that she’s going to wreck the stage with a peek inside her rehearsals for the big show this coming Sunday.
Alright, I’ll be real — I’m still excited for this, but c’mon, girl, we get it. Just get back to work and we’ll see what’s happening this weekend, OK?
