Kanye West and his personal assistant will forever remember Sept. 11 for being arrested at LAX for felony vandalism.

According to, West was outraged when a photographer was trying to capture him walking through the American Airlines terminal.

The TMZ photographer said that Kanye allegedly confronted him and smashed his camera on the ground.

Once West went nuts on the camera man, made sure they had their video rolling as they honed in on the photog’s beating, courtesy of West, but it wasn’t long before West’s assistant threw down that TMZ camera as well.

Not only is West a fighter, but he apparently has a potty mouth as well.

“When Kanye realized our camera guy had videotaped the incident, he rushed our guy and yelled, ‘Gimme that ****ing tape!'” TMZ reported.

Be sure to keep checking; it assured its readers it would have a videotape of the incident in question up very soon.

And the arrests continue. Comedian Ron White, best known as the man who held a scotch in one hand and a cigar in the other in the four person “Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Vero Beach, Fla. Now, there’s a shocker.

According to, police say White had less than 20 grams and was quickly released from jail after posting $1,000 bond.

While rednecks are busy being rednecks, Lauren Conrad is shocking the world by actually doing something productive with her life.

According to People, Conrad is set to write a three-book series of young-adult fiction for Harper Collins.

Now, I am as addicted to “The Hills” as any girl between 16 and 24, but come on, between all the “likes” and “whatevers” and the shallow confrontations that encompass their luxurious lives, it’s really not that big of an accomplishment.

So, let’s see, we have fashion designer, reality superstar and now author. I didn’t see that one coming.

Her publications are scheduled to hit shelves in summer 2009. Conrad admitted to People they were vaguely based on her own life experiences.

“It’s definitely influenced by my own life,” Conrad tells People. “The books are about a girl who moves to L.A. and stars in a reality show, so obviously there are some similarities.”

Miley Cyrus is supporting underwear and probably dropping them at the same time. The Hollywood starlet and tabloid slut has recently spent all her free time with a much older boy, who is not a Jonas brother.

The 20-year-old Justin Gatson, is not only an underwear model, but an up-and-coming country singer; Billy Ray Cyrus must be so proud.

According to, spywitnesses saw the “happy couple” get out at the valet on Santa Monica Boulevard and walked through the mall.

Any 20-year-old who is hanging with a 16-year-old is not only a future prison inmate but a fame whore as well. Guess she’ll learn eventually that purity rings are better than STDs.
