Miley Cyrus: Feeling "F-cking Thankful" on Instagram

Miley Cyrus celebrated Thanksgiving this year in the most Miley Cyrus of ways.

The 22-year old took to Instagram to post a number of selfies and inspirational quotes, expressing gratitude for all she has while, of course, cursing.

“How did I get chosen to be the one with this life?” the artist captioned the following picture. “Feeling f–king thankful & it’s not the season.”

Cyrus didn’t get drunk or dress up as a taco for the holiday, but she did continue.

“It’s going to sleep in silence nothing but these baby angels and a book after a long loud day filled with making what I love,” she wrote. “Alone time but I’m not alone! I’ll take a soul over a voice box forever.”

Miley has another reason to be thankful these days as well. She and Patrick Schwarzenegger appear to be going very strong.

Here’s to Miley and other celebrities and all our loyal THG readers. Happy Thanksgiving!

THG Presents: The 10 Biggest Turkeys of 2014!

Happy Thanksgiving, from The Hollywood Gossip family to yours.

What would this quintessential, traditional and uniquely American holiday be without family, food, football and appreciation for the things we hold dearest in this world?

In the case of THG, that means turkeys, in more ways than one.

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win THG’s 8th Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

On this 27th day of November, we’re paying tribute to some of the celebrities we had the honor, the pleasure, and the burden of covering here in 2014.

We’re talking straight up fowl individuals. Serious bird brains.

You get the idea. So who ruffled feathers with antics that left us shaking our heads, hanging our heads in shame, and laughing our heads off at the same time?

Without further ado, here are our Top 10 Turkeys of 2014 …

10. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott (tie). These two are really something else. Even in an era where shameless reality shows and celebs are pervasive.

9. Kylie Jenner’s lips (and their critics). Are they surgically enhanced? Probably not, but Kylie Jenner’s lips look pretty ridiculous. As do the haters who care so much.

8. June Shannon. What else is there to say at this point in time? Besides SIGH.

7. Scott Disick. We legitimately enjoy The Lord and the comic relief he brings to Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the celebrity gossip world overall.

Still, though. Dude needs to pull it together before he ruins his life and family.

When He Ragged on Kim's Marriage


Lord Disick often says what we’re thinking. Especially when he’s ragging on his baby mama’s clueless sisters.

6. Adam Levine. Through no fault of his own, the above-average singer became astonishingly overexposed. The man is literally everywhere at all times.

Someone needs to vote him off of The Voice … or the radio … or something.

5. Hank Baskett. Either he hooked up with a transsexual model and tried to may him/her off, got played and set up by one, or made it all up for reality TV.

Any of those three options earn the Kendra on Top star a spot on this list.

4. Chris Brown. Even by Chris Brown standards, he had a pretty epic year of generating needless drama and controversy at seemingly every opportunity.

3. Florida Man. If you see a thoroughly ridiculous headline you think has to be from The Onion but is somehow real, chances are good it was Florida Man.

2. Justin Bieber. A former global teen heart throb now morphed into the globe’s biggest douche, this year was the apex of a meltdown years in the making.

Hard to top for entertainment, yet at the same time kind of depressing.

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

1. Teresa Giudice. Living beyond her means, being bad at felony schemes and clueless about consequences, living in denial and showing no remorse?

Yup. Pretty much the definition of a turkey in our estimation.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at THG!!!!

Chet Haze: Tom Hanks’ Rapper Son Checks Into Rehab For Cocaine Addiction

Chet Haze is an aspiring hardcore rapper who also happens to be the son of beloved Hollywood icon Tom Hanks.

We’ll give you a moment to try and make sense of that.

Over the summer, we learned that Chet was “out of control” and a “huge embarrassment” to his family. We naturally assumed this had to do with his chosen career of writing odes to booties and blunts, but it turns out there was a darker side to the story.

In a Facebook status update posted earlier this week, Chet revealed that he recently completed a lengthy rehab stint.

“I’ve been struggling with substance abuse since I was 16 years old,” Haze writes. “Finally at the age of 24 I decided to get some help.”

“With 50 days of sobriety under my belt, I can honestly say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been…I’ve been blessed with the programs of AA and NA which allow me to rise above this disease…Thank you for all the love and support. GOD IS REAL!!!”

Friends say haze began to lose control of his life several months ago when he graduated from marijuana to cocaine.

“Chet developed a problem with cocaine this year,” says one source. “He always a big pot smoker, but I never thought he’d go in that direction.”

We’d like to congratulate Mr. Haze on getting sober…even if it means he’ll now be better able to focus on his rap career.

Lindsay Lohan


Lindsay Lohan has been to a rehab six times. She completed a mandatory 90-day stint in the summer of 2013.

The Hunger Games Meets One Direction in "Kill My Girl" Parody Video

One is the hottest movie in the country.

The other may be the hottest boy band of all-time.

So, what happens when The Hunger Games meets One Direction? The following parody video, which has been released by Twenty First Records and which mashes up Mockingjay – Part 1 with the track “Steal My Girl.”

The result? “Kill My Girl.”

In case you aren’t up to date on all things Hunger Games, lyrics such as “Katnip my queen, Since we were pre-teens, We hunt the same woods, We fish the same streams…” ought to help.

The band behind this video is clearly very familiar with the fictional world of Panem, as it has also poked fun at Miley Cyrus‘ “Wrecking Ball” with a new version called, “Reaping Ball.”

And you thought you were a big fan of The Hunger Games franchise, huh?

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 finished first at the box office last week, while One Direction has been making the media rounds of late, posing for the Cutest Selfie Ever with Jimmy Kimmel and promoting their new album.

Justin Bieber: So PISSED at Selena Gomez For Exploiting Him in AMA Performance!

Sunday night’s powerful, heart-wrenching Selena Gomez American Music Awards performance made a lot of headlines and impressed many people with its raw emotion.

Justin Bieber was not one of those people, however.

Millions of viewers watched her emote so hard, with Selena Gomez crying over Justin Bieber as she crooned through “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”

The man-boy who inspired her new single was far from thrilled, believing his 20-time former girlfriend was “exploiting their relationship” with these theatrics.

“Justin thinks Selena was being so dramatic on stage and making it seem like he’s the heartbreaker in all of this,” an insider says of her AMA performance.

“At first he wanted to go to the show but then his team convinced him not to go because they said he would look like a fool,” the source goes on.

“Every time he gets too preoccupied with Selena, [he turns to religion]. He has not even reached out to Selena yet to congratulate her on her performance.”

“Instead he went to New York to listen to a popular preacher.”

Ouch. Selena has always been there for him in his darkest hours, so getting shunned by Justin after such a big event has to hurt, right? One would think.

Not that he cares, at least according to this inside source:

Selena Gomez Straddles Justing Bieber


Selena Gomez assumes the position in Justin Bieber’s new Instagram video.

“Justin’s team and Pastor Carl Lenz convinced him to skip the American Music Awards and spend time at Hillsong Church in New York City instead.”

“He’s been reminded to spread the gospel rather than dwell in the trappings of Hollywood,” the source said, apparently likening Selena Gomez to a “trapping.”

Maybe not too inaccurate. But just wait until he gets Selena Gomez pregnant one of these years. Then he’ll really know what being trapped is all about.

Until then, we expect the pop star to alternate between spreading the gospel and Selena’s legs on a monthly basis. Seems to be a recurring pattern.

Michael Lohan and Kate Major: Married!

Troubled celebrity father Michael Lohan has married his troubled girlfriend Kate Major … who is also pregnant with their second child, according to reports.

Kate Major with Michael Lohan

TMZ reports that Lindsay Lohan’s father got married back on October 30 in a private ceremony in Hillsboro Beach, Fla., where the happy (?) couple resides.

Lindsay Lohan and her siblings Ali Lohan, Michael Lohan Jr. and Dakota (Cody) Lohan did not attend. Nor were they told about the event even happening.

Nor does Lindsay care, according to insiders.

Michael’s motivation was his soon-to-be-born child, which will be his second with Kate, who was at one time Lindsay’s assistant and also worked for Star.

Mike also has a love child, Ashley Horn, bringing his offspring total to seven in all once the new baby is born, nearly equaling his number of police run-ins.

As for Kate Major, gossip junkies may recall that she also dated Jon Gosselin at one point after his split from Kate Gosselin. She’s an interesting character.

Did we mention she and MiLo fight A LOT?!

Michael and Kate have been involved in multiple mutual arrests, which leaves us deeply concerned for the future of those kids … then again, look at Lindsay.

She’s the great American success story.

Ferguson Grand Jury Decision Elicits Stern Celebrity Response: Read the Tweets

On Monday night, a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri voted NOT to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed 18-year old Michael Brown in August.

Riots broke out in the streets for days following the incident and, as documented in the following video, unrest followed the grand jury verdict once again last night.

Prosecutor Bob McCulloch explained via press conference that the grand jury found no probable cause for any of the charges considered against Wilson.

The officer could have faced prosecution for first-degree murder and manslaughter in the shooting of Michael Brown, whose death has led to so much unrest.

In response, President Barack Obama addressed the nation, pushing for calm, while celebrities from across all industries expressed their reaction on Twitter…

Russell Simmons: the D.A never represented the people properly. He never wanted an indictment. violent ones in the streets are likely those who didn’t vote. 

LeBron James, who posted a drawing of Michael Brown arm in arm with Trayvon Martin, wrote:

“As a society how do we do better and stop things like this happening time after time!! I’m so sorry to these families. Violence is not the answer people. Retaliation isn’t the solution as well.”

“#PrayersUpToTheFamilies #WeHaveToDoBetter.”

Charlie Sheen: Officer Wilson, You are a murderer. Shame on you. Parents are NOT supposed to bury their children. You think about that. #Losing.

Katy Perry: Feeling stuck all the way over here in Sydney seeing the news just now… Sending my prayers to Ferguson & praying for an equal America. 

Kerry Washington: Surreal.

Lena Dunham: All my love is with the family of Michael Brown. I applaud their strength and courage, mourn their loss, pray they see justice and change.

Katherine Heigl: My heart and sympathy goes out to Michael Browns family. They’re words and actions are remarkable considering their deep sorrow and grief.

Gabrielle Union: Heavy heart, angry soul… we matter. ALL our lives matter. Hear us, feel us, respect us…

Shonda Rhimes: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”  -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Magic Johnson: We must work together to stop the unnecessary loss of young men of color. Justice was not served in Ferguson.

Josh Groban: My thoughts are with the Ferguson community. I hope the frustration, as well as the love for the Brown family, shows itself through peace.

O.J. Simpson


O.J. Simpson was arrested for the murder of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ronald Goldman, leading to the trial of the century in 1994-95.

Farrah Abraham: Nominated For Best Celebrity Sex Tape at AVN Awards!

Farrah Abraham and other mid-to-low-level celebrities who sought to attain or extend their 15 minutes of fame through “leaked” porn are being honored for their efforts.

That’s right, she’s up for Best Celebrity Sex Tape at the AVN Awards!

Farrah Gets Off

Nominations for the annual event, considered by many to be the Oscars of Porn (registered trademark?) and held in Las Vegas, have just been unveiled.

With Best Celebrity Sex Tape added to the list of categories for the first time, a treasure trove of D-list stars are now getting the recognition they richly deserve.

Among the nominees ready to vie for the prestigious title in January …

  • Farrah Abraham, for her sexxxy Backdoor and More sequel.
  • Tila Tequila, who has so many sex tapes we lost count.
  • Mimi Faust and Nikko Smith, the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast members who caused a national shower rod shortage with their bathroom acrobatics.
  • Tami Erin, the former Pippi Longstocking star who claimed her sex tape was stolen, only to later release it to an audience just BEGGING for it (or not).
  • Myla Sinanaj, Kris Humphries’ ex, and a girl who so clearly wishes she were the girl getting pounded in, and rich from, the Kim Kardashian sex tape.

There’s only one Kim K., but some of these hard-working ladies have come on fast and strong (pun intended) in their quest for celebrity porno glory.

Sadly, no Octomom this year. Here’s hoping for a Home Alone self-pleasure sequel in 2015, because this category just feels so empty without her.

Who do you want to win?! Can anyone stop Farrah!? For all her faults (such as lying about her intentions), man can this girl sell a scene with James Deen!

Farrah 2: Backdoor and More Pic

Iggy Azalea, Jennifer Lopez Bring "Booty" to American Music Awards: Watch!

Having produced a music video so risque that the idea of a live performance gave ABC nightmares, all eyes were on Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea Sunday night.

True to form, their show-stopping rendition of “Booty” featured a whole lot of arse shaking and no doubt had the censors on DefCon 5 as they witnessed this …

Lopez, looking flat-out insane for 45, kicked off the American Music Awards 2014 performance in a black and white leotard that showed off her famous ASSets.

She was joined onstage by rapper Azalea, one of the big winners at the American Music Awards and one of the breakout music stars of this entire year.

Iggy rocked a glittery metallic leotard and proceeded to dance with J.Lo as lights flashed across the stage, adorning them in polka dots, stripes, and diamonds.

Lopez at one point switched to a red ensemble and performed a seductive choreographed routine with some backup dancers not named Casper Smart.

The superstar got a call on her phone, which she dismissed as a “booty call” (get it?!) before moving those hips away and making sure we all got a look.

She ended the song with her back to the crowd.

SPOILER ALERT: Baby got BACK! Daaaamn.

Lopez and Azalea’s epic performance closed out an interesting, star-studded night in which Taylor Swift performed “Blank Space” to open the telecast.

Not only that, but Selena Gomez cried over Justin Bieber during her own live performance Sunday, making for weeks of gossip fodder for the rumor mill.

And then there was the red carpet. Whoa.

Check out our gallery below for some of the most notable fashion statements from the celebrities Sunday evening … this first image really sets the tone:
