Julianne Hough Goes Blackface for Halloween
The dancer turned actress hit a Hollywood Halloween party over the weekend dressed as "Crazy Eyes" from Orange is the New Black--essentially in blackface. Her costume's racial undertones angered many.
Hough apologized for the blackface controversy, saying, "I am a huge fan of the show Orange Is the New black, actress Uzo Aduba, and the character she has created.

Cee Lo Charged With Drugging a Woman With E
In October 2013, voice-of-gold soul man Cee-Lo Green, legally known as Thomas DeCarlo Calloway, was charged with furnishing a controlled substance after a 33-year old woman alleged that the singer slipped a tab of ecstasy into her drink. She claims to have woken up naked in bed with him. Green has plead not guilty to the charge.
The L.A. District attorney investigated whether a sexual assault took place, but ultimately chose not to file sexual assault charges, citing a lack of evidence. If Green, who waived his right to a speedy trial, is found guilty, he could face up to 4 years in prison for the charges.
Owen Wilson Knocks Up Married Personal Trainer
Owen Wilson, 44, has reportedly knocked up Caroline Lindqvist, 41, a personal trainer/real estate agent hired by Wilson back in 2007 to get him in shape after his suicide attempt. Lindqvist is currently in the middle of filing for divorce from her plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Ritu Chopra, who was reportedly stunned by the news of his wife's pregnancy despite claims that Wilson and Lindqvist's sexual relationship didn't begin until after she and her husband had separated. Wilson is said to have no desire to be in a relationship with the woman carrying his second child.
Wilson's other baby mama, ex-girlfriend Jade Duell, is taking the news in stride, but making certain demands about the birth of another woman's child nonetheless.(Source)
Miley Cyrus vs. Sinead O'Connor: Twitter Feud
What started as an open letter from one former pop star to a current one – in which a concerned O'Connor, 46, urged Cyrus, 20, not "to prostitute" herself – has quickly turned nasty.
In response to the letter, Miley took to Twitter and posted a series of old Tweets from the Irish singer, who according to BBC News, has bipolar disorder, and at the time of the Tweets was seeking recommendations from followers for a psychiatrist. Cyrus compared O'Connor to Amanda Bynes, who is undergoing psychiatric treatment. Ouch.
O'Conner did not take kindly to the dis and threatened legal action, calling it an "unacceptable form of bullying,"
Miley responded with, "I don't have time to write you an open letter cause I'm hosting & performing on SNL this week." She then posted a picture of O'Connor's infamous SNL appearance when she tore up a photo of the pope, followed by a request to "meet up and talk."O'Conner, not surprisingly, said she did not want to meet up. She added, "O'Connor wrote: "When you end up in the psych ward or rehab I'll be happy to visit you … and would not lower myself to mock you. Be a proper woman and make the public apologies."
