Cee Lo Green was taken to court last year after he was accused of slipping ecstasy in a woman’s drink and raping her. He somehow got off with the rape charges, but there’s still a court case surrounding the alleged spiking of her drink – an incident that apparently took place in a Los Angeles sushi restaurant in July 2012. Cee Lo appeared in court in October to begin answering the charges of “furnishing an uncontrolled substance”, and he continued that case on Monday. Prosecutors wouldn’t file the rape charges because of “insufficient evidence” (i.e. they were most likely paid off).
Well, Cee Lo is still denying that he ever had any ecstasy (LOL yeah right – one look at him will tell you that’s bullshit) and told reporters outside of court: “I’m a fan of good, clean living.” HAHAHAHA, yeah, okay.
Cee Lo is a hot fucking mess and this whole thing is ridiculous. But as we all know, he’s a celebrity and he’s rich, which means he will never do any time or face any real consequences for his actions. Don’t you have so much faith in the justice system?

Obviously the Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow story’s re-emergence in the headlines (don’t forget, Allen’s abuse has been well-known since the ’70s) has put the world on alert for other sexual deviants. That being said, it’s no surprise that Gawker wrote up a piece about legendary comedian Bill Cosby‘s MULTIPLE sex offense accusations that also spanned decades and are pretty consistent and most likely completely true.
Apparently the latest press coverage of Cosby’s offenses was as recent as 2006, and yet… I don’t remember hearing about it whatsoever. Do you? It seems to follow a trend we have as a culture: ignore anything unsavory for the sake of protecting great “art”. We want to discount Dylan Farrow’s story because Woody Allen is a total legend and a genius filmmaker. We want to believe that Bill Cosby – the loveable TV dad and erudite comedian – would never violate a single woman, let alone several. R. Kelly having sex with and preying upon underage girls is laughed off for the sake of preserving his reputation as a legendary R&B artist. Where does it end?
One of Cosby’s accusers was brave enough to use her own name in a public lawsuit against Cosby and even appeared on the TODAY show with Matt Lauer at the time to speak about her experience. Here’s how she described her run-in:
When Plaintiff advised Defendant she did not feel well, Defendant led Plaintiff to a sofa, because she could not walk on her own, where he laid her down, under the guise of “helping” her.
Subsequently, Defendant positioned himself behind Plaintiff on the sofa, touched her breasts and vaginal area, rubbed his penis against her hand, and digitally penetrated her.
Plaintiff remained in a semi-conscious state throughout the time of this ordeal.
At no time was Plaintiff capable of consent after the pills affected her, and at no time did she consent to Defendant’s acts.
It goes on and on – I recommend reading the whole thing for a more complete account. This is just disgusting and I wish we’d all pay a bit more attention to it. Listen: shitty people can make great art. It happens all the time; the two aren’t mutually exclusive. But to brush SERIOUS abuse like this under the carpet is absolutely appalling.

I hate to get into the grizzly details of celebrity deaths – especially with someone like Philip Seymour Hoffman, who had such incredible pain that he kept quite private – but news is news, so here we are. We know that PSH died of a heroin overdose, but more information on exactly what went down prior to his death has been revealed, and it’s rather upsetting. Turns out, he didn’t just decide to do a small amount of heroin and accidentally overdosed. Instead, he was said to have had more than 50 envelopes of heroin in his apartment – a binge of epic proportions.
From Sky News:
Police sources said around 50 envelopes – some empty, some unopened – were discovered inside Hoffman’s apartment and that tests showed they contained heroin. Officials are still working to establish whether the drug was mixed with any other substance.
Investigators also found multiple used and unused hypodermic needles and prescription drugs, including anti-anxiety and blood pressure medications, sources told Sky News New York correspondent Hannah Thomas-Peter.
Jesus Christ. Listen, we’ve all done a drug here or there at some point in our lives, but heroin is not something you “dabble” in. It’s not something you take even once. I’m not here to condemn PSH or call him stupid (Jared Padalecki did that and it was tacky as hell), but it’s just so, so sad. Heroin is a drug you resort to when you can’t handle the rest of life and so often, it ends up destroying the person who uses it. Really, really sad.

Well, now everything is news, I suppose. Kylie Jenner went to the hospital yesterday after she was injured while jumping on a trampoline with older sister Khloe Kardashian. Apparently her injury was “painful” (though nonspecific) and of course since nothing really happened if it’s not documented on social media, Kylie took the opportunity to post the selfie above and give us a little explanation:
“in the hospital thanks to @khloekardashian. (Look at her page for the reason why) my mom said ‘never thought I would take u to the doctor for a trampoline accident at this age) this means war Khloe. Ps. It was painful taking this photo.”
Khloe replied soon after with the following photo, claiming it was proof that Kylie did it to herself:
So… those photos make it look like Kylie hurt her back, but she’s holding her nose in the selfie. WHO CAN SOLVE THIS MYSTERY?! In any case, glad she’s okay, I guess.

Don’t expect to see Taylor Swift naked anytime soon – she’s made it known that she’s not into stripping down and feels like it’s more fun to be naked… IN HER MUSIC (dun dun dunnnn!). Sure, many of her contemporaries like getting naked every chance they can, but not our Taylor. No, she’s pure as the driven snow!
“I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have.”
“For me, ‘risky’ is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”
Well, fair enough. I appreciate that she didn’t start naming names or trying to shame anyone who has taken a bit of a different path than her – seriously, that’s rare (not for her, just in general). Sure, I think it’s kinda silly that she thinks she’s being really “out there” with her songs, but hey, I’m a TaySwift fan…ish, so I’ll go with it.
