Miley Cyrus Doing a Bong Hit of Salvia

Here’s a video of international Disney channel superstar Miley Cyrus acting her age. Of course, by “acting her age,” we mean she’s doing a bong hit like a completely normal 18 year old. Who cares? According to TMZ, it was recorded at a Los Angeles party at her house five days after her 18th birthday. Also, TMZ’s source reports that’s not marijuana in the bong; it’s the legal psychedelic herb salvia. Cyrus has to be annoying to smoke up with. How mad do you think she is at her friend recording the video who says, “I’m going to document the shit out of this.” Hannah Montana be trippin’… literally, for all the world to see. Watch after the JUMP…

Some Christina Aguilera Pictures We Weren’t Supposed to See

Candid, racy, sexy, semi-nude photos of Christina Aguilera for her “Not Myself Tonight” video shoot in April 2010 were leaked online. Based on that time-line, I’m going to assume these were sent to her then-manstress Matthew Rutler who did exactly what you’re not supposed to do with these things.In a revealing move, Christina’s people have actually confirmed the photos are her, and that she was the target of a hacker. Because if there’s anything hackers love, it’s conveniently distributing photos of a now-pregnant woman to remind people she used to be thin. Damn their villainy! More after the JUMP…

What’s Beef? Skinny E-Thug Gets Beat Down

You or someone you know has talked shit online, wether it be on Youtube, or any social media site. Here’s a lesson: If you’re going to talk shit be sure you can back it up. Skinny brotha above could’ve gotten his brains splattered all over the pavement by big boy in the yellow. Supposedly “skinny” was talking smack on Youtube, and “biggy” came to represent. Lucky big dude didn’t go to town.
