Brown vs. Drake

I for one thought the days of the old-school beef were dead and gone. In this age of constant connection and social media, so much of the disrespect that needed to be dished out face to face can now be done instantly via the power of the internet. Hip-hop hatred has become a thing that is confined to the computer screen more often than not.

But then we get something like last week's incident between Chris Brown and Drake and we're reminded that while words can hurt, thrown bottles usually hurt more.

It all went down on the night of June 13. Brown and Drake were both in attendance at a club called W.i.P. in New York City. Specifics are sketchy everyone has a different story but the general gist seems to be that Brown's and Drake's respective entourages got into a full-on brawl in the club. Said brawl involved bottles being thrown and innocent bystanders getting swept up into (and injured by) the melee, including an Australian model and San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker.

Miss Informed?

Beauty pageants are serious business. While the millions of television watchers out there get a chance to watch the ceremony unfold and see all the glitz and glamor, there's a dark underside to events such as the Miss USA competition. One contestant in this year's pageant Miss Pennsylvania is trying to bring some of those dark machinations into the light.

There's only one problem: she's a lunatic.

Sheena Monnin represented the state of Pennsylvania in the recent Miss USA pageant. She didn't win, but according to her, it wasn't because she failed to measure up. Oh no it was because the entire thing is rigged. Her evidence? She claims that one of her fellow contestants (Miss Florida) saw a list of the five finalists before they were announced. Proof! The fix is in!

Not so fast.

Twitter tribulations

Believe it or not, a good deal of the sayings and doings for which celebrities get slammed completely lack malicious intent. Don't get me wrong it doesn't make these things less stupid. They are very stupid. Still, most of the time, no harm is meant.

The recent controversy surrounding Gwyneth Paltrow and her Twitter feed is a perfect example.

Paltrow was in attendance at a Jay-Z/Kanye West 'Watch The Throne' show in Paris recently. She clearly was feeling it when she took to the interwebs to send this tweet: 'N----s in Paris for real.' She paired that tweet with a picture of the duo on stage.

Badass Bieber

There's something irritatingly wholesome about Justin Bieber. Even when he tries to be tough by association hanging out with boxers like Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson for example it never quite rings true. He's all goofy grin and haircut heck, that innocence is one of the main reasons he's achieved so much success. Turns out Bieber might be a harder case than we gave him credit for.

A California photographer is alleging that the Biebs beat him up.

According to the report, Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez were leaving a Calabasas mall on Sunday when the altercation took place. According to the paparazzo, he was simply trying to take a picture of Bieber and Gomez as they were leaving. Bieber took umbrage and there was apparently a scuffle before the tween idols drove off. The photog claimed injury; an ambulance was called and he was taken to the hospital, examined and released.

It's been one of those weeks here at Celebrity Slam. Most of the time, we're lucky enough to get two or three items that really demand the full treatment. However, sometimes, the spotlight-seekers and mouth-breathers manage to mostly behave like functional human beings for a seven-day stretch.

Therefore, we're looking at a quick hits-type column for this edition. We hope to get back to our regularly scheduled in-depth scorn and mockery next week. Thank you for your patience.

Mommy dearest

We've had a lot of fun with the Kardashian clan in this space over the past few years. They have somehow managed to combine a complete lack of discernible talents with utter shamelessness to create a perfect storm of reality watchability. You might not watch their shows I certainly don't but E! wouldn't be coughing up tens of millions of dollars to keep them on the air if no one was tuning in.

However, sometimes the ridiculousness gets to be too much. Lines that shouldn't be crossed are rare in the world of reality television. However, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner has found a way to do just that. She told one of her daughters (Khloe) that her father might not be her father and that she should get a DNA test to find out if she's a 'real' Kardashian.

Yep. That happened.

On the season finale of 'Khloe and Lamar,' which aired just a few days ago, Kris Jenner comes right out and tells Khloe she should get a genetic test to determine if Robert Kardashian is her real father. 'There has to be a part of you that wants resolution in your heart,' Kris said. When Khloe was uninterested, Kris kept pushing almost bullying, really.

Khloe's response? 'I don't care either way because my dad is my dad and my stepdad is my stepdad.' It's a shockingly healthy take on the situation from Khloe although subsequent reports say that she might go through with the test anyway.

I hope she doesn't.

Kris Jenner is a terrible person and a worse mom. Her personal obsession with fame has swept up every one of her kids to one degree or another; this is just the most recent (and egregious) example. Leaving aside how awful it must be for a mother to tell her daughter that a father might not be a father, let us not forget that the only reason any of these doubts exist the only reason why Khloe might want 'resolution in her heart' is the fact that Kris wrote a trashy tell-all memoir in which she copped to all kinds of fooling around on husband Robert Kardashian. Her attention to creepy detail ensured that the world would know she was particularly unfaithful in the period leading up to Khloe's conception and birth.

Do these in any way resemble the actions of a woman who loves her children? Or has anything even resembling normal human emotions? She's like some sort of fame-powered android, willing to sacrifice anything and everything including the well-being of her children. It would be bad enough if she was just some psychopath irrationally laying waste to the emotional well-being of her kids. It would still be terrible, but she could maybe seek some sort of help.

Alas, Kris Jenner is fully aware of what she's doing to ALL of her kids. She is pure cold calculation you can almost see the dollar signs in her eyes when she looks at the members of her family. While most parents would look at milestone life events watching her kids get married, holding her grandchildren with a parent's loving, prideful eye. Kris Jenner simply sees a row of numbers adding up to yet another truckload of money to stash in the Kris Jenner Money Bin. It's all horrifically mercenary.

It wasn't our original intent to use this entire space on Kris Jenner. However, in the course of writing this piece, the complete distaste for this woman and what she represents became overwhelming. Of course, the Kardashian kids do bear some degree of responsibility for the circus that their lives have become. It's reality television and they signed the contracts. But there's still a line (blurry and jagged though it might be) and Kris Jenner crossed it gleefully and without remorse. At the end of the day, she basically tried to take Khloe's father away from her all for a bump in the Nielsen rating and a few more books sold. Regardless of the outcome of any test, this familial fracture will take a very long time to heal.

And just think she's got two more young ones left to exploit. God only knows what she'll do to them.

Batting practice

In the course of conducting the exhaustive research required to fill this space with the hard-hitting Celebrity Slamming that you've come to expect, we sometimes learn unexpected facts about the world of the spotlight-seekers.

This week, we learned that the Los Angeles County jail has a celebrity wing. While that makes a lot of sense, it was something that we'd never really thought about. It's also a place that by its nature makes for some interesting fellow travelers.

Which brings us to the story of disgraced doctor Conrad Murray, singer James DeBarge and former pro baseball player Lenny Dykstra; this might be the only time those three names ever appear in a story together, so enjoy it.

LiLo doubles down

Here at Celebrity Slam, we have occasionally been accused of piling on. It's a valid point, but the truth is that certain famous people seemingly go out of their way to place targets on their own backs. We don't make these celebrities say what they say or do what they do we just mock them mercilessly when it happens.

Which brings us to Lindsay Lohan. Again.

A couple of weeks ago, LiLo was accused of getting into a shoving match with a woman at the nightclub Smoke and Mirrors. According to the claim, the woman was talking to a male friend of the actress and Lohan took umbrage, even going so far as to start pushing and shoving her.

The Amanda Show

There are a lot of trashballs out there among the celebrity elite. These are people who despite their fame or more often because of it behave like irresponsible degenerate morons. We just shrug it gives us something to fill this space and it's not like we have high expectations of the Snookis and LiLos of the world.

And then there are the surprises. Surprises like Amanda Bynes.

Bynes apparently was clubbing it up in West Hollywood and got behind the wheel when she shouldn't have. According to law enforcement sources, Bynes attempted to pass a police car and sideswiped it, banging into the right real panel. Obviously, she was pulled over; officers determined that she was not fit to drive. She was arrested and carted off to jail.

Community strife

The NBC show 'Community' has had a bit of a rough go recently. The show just came off a winter hiatus and its status in the network lineup is unclear after this season. Happily, those tensions haven't affected the on-set environment and everyone is pleased as punch to be working together for however much longer it lasts.

Ha! Just kidding. There's a full-on blood feud developing between Chevy Chase, one of the show's stars, and creator Dan Harmon.

While this conflict has allegedly been simmering for a while now, things came to a head during the filming of the season's final episode. Apparently, Chase wasn't feeling a scene and asked Harmon for a rewrite, saying that he wouldn't do the scene as it was currently written. Harmon refused and Chase left the set. There was some tension, but overall, things looked amicable.

Looks can be deceiving.
