IS THAT AN ENGAGEMENT RING ON KATY PERRY'S FINGER?!: Are JOHN MAYER and KATY PERRY engaged?! That's the hot, new rumor after Katy was photographed flashing a sparkly diamond on her ring finger at MTV EMAs. Perry didn't comment then and has yet to make any comment on her choice of jewelery.
LADY GAGA CONFIRMS SHE WILL BE THE FIRST TO SING IN SPACE: It turns out it wasn’t just a wild tabloid rumor, LADY GAGA will be the first artist to sing from outer space. You can read more about that HERE.
DID TOM CRUISE REALLY COMPARE MAKING MOVIES TO FIGHTING IN AFGHANISTAN?!: We told you last week that TOM CRUISE is suing a couple of tabloids over stories they printed alleging he abandoned his daughter Suri after splitting with her mom, KATIE HOLMES.
Well, in a recent legal deposition related to that suit, Cruise said a couple of things when answering questions that seemingly compared making movies to fighting in Afghanistan. Whaaa?! I know! Here's what he said about location shoots being similar to serving a tour in Afghanistan: "That's what it feels like. And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."
But Tom's lawyer, Bert Fields, says Tom was not saying his job is as difficult as that of a soldier fighting overseas. He says, quote, "What Tom said, laughingly, was that sometimes, 'That's what it feels like.'" He also says video of the deposition shows the questioner asking Tom if he thinks the two situations are comparable and Tom says, quote, "Oh, come on." He added that Tom is, quote, "a staunch supporter of our troops."
UPDATE - CHARLIE SHEEN'S FORMER BROTHER IN LAW GIVEN CUSTODY OF THE TWINS: Brooke's brother Scott Mueller was awarded custody on Friday, and reportedly plans to move into his sister's home. Brooke's brother will also seek $55,000 a month in child support from Charlie now that he's the twins' guardian. That's what Brooke was getting before the boys were given to Denise Richards. Several hours after Scott was named guardian, Brooke was spotted with the boys. (PHOTO)
That didn't sit well with Charlie, who headed to Twitter to vent in his usual mature way. "So lemme see if I got this straight. My twin boys are now in harm's way and in grave danger. Being ‘raised’ by a gaggle of incompetent and lascivious marionettes all ruled and fooled by an [Adderall] snorting husk called Brooke." Then he went after the judge, writing, “And guess what CPS and ‘I’m Italian’ judge anus-brain, you may have gagged me temporarily, but mark my unspoken words, anything happens to my boys, and you will know get to know me, know who I truly am, a loving father. Tag – I’m it.”
And even though his Twitter vent violates the gag order the judge had put in place ... and it could mean jail time for Charlie, he still wasn't done! “And if this means being jailed for loving and trying to protect my children, then go for it. I have as many friends on the inside as I do out here. My passion WILL NOT be silenced. You are all now standing in my way. I’d recommend a shift in your geography.” No word yet on whether The Honorable "Judge Anus-brain" is going to lock him up, or shift his geography.
SHOCKER! CHARLIE IS NOT A RESPONSIBLE PARENT: But for as much as Charlie is complaining, it’s not like he’s stepping up to take responsibility for his kids. According to L. A. County DCFS, Charlie has never once made an attempt to get custody of his twin boys. Said one source, “He cares more about his drugs and porn stars than he does his kids.”
Ouch! But, yeah. I mean think about it: Charlie's solution to keeping the kids away from Brooke has been to give them to his other ex-wife. And sure he visits, but he obviously doesn't want them under his roof. Sorry, Charlie, threatening and insulting people on Twitter doesn't make you a good dad.
MILEY MADNESS - GROPES LITTLE PERSON, LIGHTS UP ON STAGE: MILEY CYRUS appeared at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam over the weekend and once again did everything she possibly could to get attention. Let my count thy ways ...
2. She had her little person dancer onstage with her in a separate performance, and after twerking all up on her and having the little person spank her butt, Miley squeezed the little person's latex-clad breast. (PHOTO)
3. During her acceptance speech for Best Video for "Wrecking Ball," she pulled a joint out of her purse and lit it.
Because the show was held in Amsterdam, she probably won't get in trouble for toking up. Marijuana is not legal in the Netherlands, but potheads can't be prosecuted for possession of small amounts of the giggle weed. And her toking didn’t stop there. Sources tell Us Weekly Cyrus was smoking backstage throughout the night. Said an insider, “No one was expecting it to happen. It was so brazen, so shameless. It was so uncalled for."
IN DENIAL - MARGOT ROBBIE DENIES WILL SMITH FLING Actress MARGOT ROBBIE has responded to a tabloid claim she had a fling with her Focus co-star Will Smith. Star magazine suggested there was something going on between the two stars based on what appeared to be racy photos of them in a photo booth. But Margot took to Twitter to set the record straight. "There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor," she wrote. "It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context."
