While supermodel Naomi's erratic and violent behavior keep leaving her in hot water, she manages to escape the pot time and time again. Most recently she was arrested for kicking and spitting at police officers and a flight captain after going "berserk" on a plane when they lost her luggage. She was heard saying on her phone, "They have lost my f****** bags, get me another flight, get the press, get me my lawyer."
The judges ruling? "Whilst we accept that the loss of your suitcase would have been stressful your subsequent behaviour cannot be justified." But no six-months of jail time for Naomi! Just a mere 200 hours of community service and paying roughly $700 the two police officers and the aircraft captain. Do they realize she makes more than that on one trip down the runway? Ugh. When will justice be served! [The Sun]

The critically acclaimed, Oscar winning film Juno highlights a teen who accidentally gets pregnant and decides to keep the baby and remain in school. As exams end and summer vacation begins, a shocking 17 girls at Massachusetts' Gloucester High School are pregnant-over four times more than the total pregnancies the school had last year. As far back as October girls were making frequent trips to the school clinic for pregnancy tests where, principal Joseph Sullivan claims "some girls seemed more upset when they weren't pregnant than when they were."Read More »from Was the teen pregnancy pact a result of "Juno"?
The culprit for this dramatic spike in baby making? Nearly half of the expecting moms-to-be confessed to making a pact to get pregnant so they could raise their babies together. The girls apparently reacted to news that they were pregnant with high fives and began planning baby showers. Even more jarring: "We found out one of the fathers is a 24-year-old homeless guy," says the principal. "Families are broken," says school superintendent

Rihanna, no longer able to shock and awe with her cute pixie haircuts has gone the route of Sarah Jessica Parker and Paris Hilton and worn a ridiculous hat for attention. And not just once!

First she performed on the Today show with one and later she attended the MuchMusic awards in even worse head gear. Rihanna, you're beautiful, everyone loves you and your music, you don't need the freaking hat! It's OK to have a normal outfit on just once.
Do you think Rihanna's hats are playful or ridiculous?

Frank Micelotta/Getty ImagesIt's not uncommon for the big name actors of hit sitcoms to disappear into oblivion once their program comes to an end. Call it the curse of typecasting or just plain unlucky, the entire cast of Friends save for Jennifer Aniston, has had some difficulty taking on new, successful roles and the same can be said of That 70's Show, aside from Ashton Kutcher. But now both Matthew Perry and Wilmer Valderrama are poised for a small screen comeback--they've obtained the leads for fall pilots, The End of Steve and The Emancipation of Ernesto respectively. Courtney Cox Arquette just received the news that her series, Dirt, will not be renewed for a third season.Read More »from Matthew Perry and Wilmer Valderrama to star in pilots: career comebacks or inevitable flops?

Andrew H. Walker/Getty ImagesThere's always so much controversy involved in a celebrity's weight fluctuation. They gain a few pounds and tabloids shun them; shed a few and it's dubbed an eating disorder. This is not only a complicated balance for both the stars but also for us women who emulate them. Everyone loves the praise of, "Oh you look great" after slimming down, but sometimes the commentary alone can influence results in a positive or negative way. 3rd Rock From the Sun's Kristen Johnston recently lost what we hear is 60 pounds.
For someone we've become accustomed to having a more voluptuous build--that we totally dig--it doesn't look quite right to us. What do you think?
Gareth Davies/Getty ImagesWill Smith is definitely an American favorite and go-to for directors when they want a guaranteed hit. But did you know he's a box-office record breaker? According to predictions, his new movie, Hancock (in theaters July 2nd) is looking to make around $140-150 million opening weekend-this would be Will's 8th consecutive film to rack in $100 million at the box office. Know how many other actors can claim they've done that? Zero.

Designer Kimora Lee Simmons, 33, and actor/model Djimon Honsou, 44, might be getting married. Yes, it's unclear. Kimora, who has kept the surname of famous ex, mogul Russell Simmons, was asked at a recent Cartier event if she was engaged she said "kind of." When reporters pried as to whether Honsou had given her an engagement ring, Simmons response was, "Well, kind of, not quite." Huh? Did you buy the ring for yourself? Does this dude want to marry you? We understand keeping your private life private, but next time just say "no comment"-these vague answers are making you look bad!

Dave Hogan/Getty ImagesIt's not that we don't like Madonna-sure, we'll even admit to humming along to her crappy single, "4 Minutes," whenever that shampoo commercial comes on. It's just… unlike Madge, who often publicly renounces her previous incarnations, we miss the Madonna of yesteryear. So sue us. That said, we couldn't be more excited at the glimpse of the set list for her upcoming tour: "Heartbeat," "Everybody," "Borderline," "Open Your Heart," "Vogue," "Who's That Girl," "La Isla Bonita," "Dress You Up," "Holiday"… holy cow.
We need to cop tickets immediately! Looks like there's no time like the present to see the Queen of Pop. [Perez]
