LAMAR ODOM BREAKS SILENCE - DENIES KARDASHIAN'S DROVE HIM TO DRUGS: LAMAR ODOM has finally broken his silence on his reported drug addiction after his father, Joe, talked smack about the Kardashians to a gossip site the other day.
Lamar ripped him a new one after his dad told Radar Online “the Kardashians are to blame for all my son's problems,” adding, "He hasn't really accomplished anything since he's been with them. Without them, he'd still be in the NBA playing basketball. He'd be playing for the Lakers and be one of the top players in the league." Joe then lashed out at KHLOE saying all of Lamar's problems began after he got together with her, calling their marriage "the curse of his life."
Well, last night Odom lit into his dad in a message on TwitLonger that read in part: “He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons...how can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own ‘son.’ He is my downfall! His own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave to me...He is disrespecting the ONLY FAMILY that has loved me without expecting anything in return.” You can read his entire rant HERE.
COVER SHOT - MILEY CYRUS: Stop us if you've heard this before -- MILEY CYRUS is appearing online nude and with her tongue sticking out. This time for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, where she appears topless and licking her shoulder ...
Inside the magazine, Miley talks about the VMA's, her booty, and JUSTIN BIEBER among other things. Here are some highlights:
On her VMAs performance: "I thought that’s what the VMAs were all about! It’s not the Grammys or the Oscars. You’re not supposed to show up in a gown, Vanna White-style… It’s supposed to be fun!"
On her butt: "People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest [butt] ever.' I’m like, 'I’m 108 pounds! I know! '"
On Justin Bieber: “He really can sing. I just don’t want to see him f*** that up, to where people think he’s Vanilla Ice. I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke.’”
To celebrate her first "Rolling Stone" cover story, Miley got the word "Rolling" tattooed on the bottom of her right foot, and "Stone" tattooed on the bottom of her left. But because she's a baller and all, she used a dollar sign instead of an "s".

He told an inquiring cameraman he was hoping to sit on a “multiple homicide case” because it would be interesting, and that he was “more qualified” to judge a drug case because of his past history.

TODAY IN CELEBRITY WARDROBE MALFUNCTIONS - JUSTIN BIEBER: You know those how JUSTIN BIEBER like to wear his pants low? Well, it nearly caused a butt-flash on stage in Singapore ...
JUSTIN BIEBER PURGING HIS POSSE: TMZ reports JUSTIN BIEBER has supposedly booted Lil Twist and Lil Za from his Calabasas, CA mansion after several pieces of bling went missing while he was away and his pals were at play.
The Bieb has put up with a lot of grief caused by the two trouble making members of his entourage -- who've wrecked his cars, threatened his neighbors and damaged his house. But the hanger-on’s apparently used up the last of his patience last week by throwing an out-of-control party where someone walked off with Justin's jewels.
Sources told TMZ he’s blaming Twist and Za for allowing the heist to happen, so he’s kicked them out of his huge home. People around Bieber, including manager Scooter Braun, are hoping this is a sign he’s trying to turn his life around.
KELLY CLARKSON FORCED TO SELL JANE AUSTEN RING: When KELLY CLARKSON bought a ring at auction that was once owned by Jane Austen, one of the most widely read authors in history, the British government went nuts because they didn't want the "national treasure" to leave the country.

LINDSAY LOHAN'S MOM PLEADS NOT GUILTY TO DUI: Dina Lohan isn't going down without a fight -- she pleaded not guilty to DUI charges yesterday morning (Tuesday) in Long Island, New York.
Dina, whose breathalyzer measured more than twice the legal limit when she was arrested two weeks ago, has been released on supervised probation. She's also had to turn over her driver's license while her case is ongoing.

'DANCING' UPDATE - BILL NYE INJURED, MAY HAVE TO QUIT: Bill Nye the Science Guy may be out at "Dancing With the Stars".
The 57-year-old injured his knee when he tripped at the end of his paso doble on Monday night, and may have to bow out of the program. If he is forced to withdraw, the show may skip an elimination, or bring back KEYSHAWN JOHNSON, who was the first booted this week.
Although it will depend on what the doctor say, it sounds like Nye wants to keep on dancing. Last night, he posted the above photo of himself in a doctor's office, with his knee all wrapped up. The caption said, quote, "Here is the scoop: Partially torn ligament. Awaiting the doc's orders with Tyne. We plan to dance! Stand by."
