Miley Does A "Lap" Dance; Britney Fires Her Agent/ BoyfriendS

  • Making a big deal about this video of Miley Cyrus giving a "lap dance" is just silly.

But he's Adam Shankman, the openly gay producer of Hairspray and judge on So You Think You Can Dance. I dunno, I refuse to be outraged. Everyone's clothes are on and it looks like a fun party. [TMZ]

  • "In the beginning I'm sure some people [in the audience] really don't like Karen. And that's exactly right, that's the entire point. She's the person you meet in the grocery store who's just unpleasant. You're not drawn to them and you wonder how this person functions in the world, and the answer is not very well.

  • "When I was at my most promiscuous, I was like a charging locomotive. My selection process was outsourced. I had a team of experts who took care of finding women for me. They had very specific instructions. It was as if I was talking to a wine steward - 'I'm looking for something French, a bit fruity, smells of oak.' I've reached a point in my life where I understand empirically that this is not the answer. When you sleep with loads of women, it becomes a bit pointless and futile. The majority of people in sex rehab are just disgusting men. There aren't hot blondes ripping off their clothes and saying, 'I'm gorgeous, and I just can't get enough!' It's just sleazy men pleasuring themselves in dark corners. Let's not shy away from it: they're pedophiles and perverts.
