"Rolling Stone" asked KESHA if she'd sleep with JUSTIN BIEBER . . . and after they clarified that he's 18, she quickly said yes. She added, quote, "We could go out and buy lottery tickets, vote, play putt-putt golf. All the things that are legal at the age of 18." She also admitted she smokes pot, but not all the time, because, quote, "I get super weird."
The third man to accuse Elmo puppeteer KEVIN CLASH of statutory rape filed his lawsuit yesterday. The document gives specific details of the sexual encounter he claims occurred in 2000, when he was only 16 and Clash was around 40. The accuser is suing for unspecified damages.
LISA ROBIN KELLY from "That '70s Show" was arrested Monday night after she and her husband got into a fight at their North Carolina home. This is Lisa's THIRD arrest since 2010, and her second arrest for domestic violence this year.
If "Time" magazine's list of possible Person of the Year candidates is any indication, then 2012 truly is the year IT ALL WENT TO HELL. Because this year's honoree could end up being E.L. JAMES, who wrote "50 Shades of Grey" . . . or PSY, the guy responsible for "Gangnam Style". There ARE serious contenders, like President Obama, Mitt Romney, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Olympic gold medalists Gabby Douglas and Michael Phelps, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert . . .New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Mars Rover, and Malala Yousafzai . . . a 15-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban for advocating women's education. Last year's honoree was The Protester. And this year's list of candidates includes another one of those lame catch-alls: The Undocumented Worker.
ANGUS T. JONES has released a statement in the wake of his super religious, anti-"Two and a Half Men" rant . . . and he's APOLOGIZING. Sort of. He says he's sorry if his comments came across as disrespectful or unappreciative. That being said, it doesn't seem like he plans to take any of it back.
Former "Two and a Half Men" problem CHARLIE SHEEN has commented on CURRENT "Two and a Half Men" problem ANGUS T. JONES.
Here's Charlie's take: Quote, "With Angus's Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it's radically clear to me that the show is cursed." (--"Hale-Bopp" is a reference to the Heaven's Gate cult, which committed mass suicide in 1997 so their spirits could board an alien ship that was following the Hale-Bopp comet.)
Here are a few tips to help you win tonight's record $500 MILLION Powerball jackpot. Avoid birthdays and popular lucky numbers like 7 and 11, and use obscure combinations that only you picked. The only real way to increase your odds is to buy more tickets. And don't pick the same number for the Powerball every time.
A few weeks ago, "The Onion" did one of their fake news articles declaring North Korean leader KIM JONG UN 2012's SEXIEST MAN ALIVE. But the official newspaper of China's communist party didn't realize it was satire . . . so they republished the entire thing as news.
