Chief Keef beef?

One of the marvelous things about social media is that it provides a much quicker and easier way for celebrities to reach out and connect with their fans. Unfortunately for the famous folks and fortunately for us here at Celebrity Slam it also provides a much quicker and easier way for those same celebrities to say and do the kinds of ridiculous things that land them in this space.

Our latest contestant is rapper Chief Keef.

The hip-hop star recently took to Twitter to exact some sort of revenge on someone who has apparently wronged him. He posted a street address in Minneapolis and invited his followers of which there are more than a million to 'throw eggs and st in a bag and rocks and all that and Ima repost it.'

More VMA magic

As with anything, the Celebrity Slam cycle has its own ebbs and flows. Some times are richer with material, while others are less fertile. It's the nature of the beast.

Meanwhile, in the West

In case you haven't heard, Kanye West doesn't like the paparazzi. Like, really doesn't like them. He has made his displeasure known very vocally on a number of occasions recently. Long story short, he's not a fan.

Unfortunately, Mr. West took things a little too far and went to the realm of the physical.

It all went down at LAX on Friday. According to reports, Kanye was passing through a group of photographers and turned to address one of them, saying 'What you're trying to do is get me in trouble, so I step out and have to pay you like $250,000.' Apparently, he convinced himself that it was worth it, because he then ran toward the photographer and attempted to grab the camera, both men sinking to the ground.

The photographer reported the incident to police before being transported to a hospital for medical attention. The photographer also reportedly wants to press charges; the police are referring the case to the district attorney's office as a felony attempted robbery.

Oh Kanye. You stupid, stupid man.

You have to know that you can't, absolutely cannot put your hands on any of these guys. You've made your feelings about them clear, and they're understandable. You want a moment's peace from the flashbulbs it makes sense. Unfortunately, you live in a world where if they want to take your picture in the airport, they can do that. It's probably infuriating, but that's the way it is.

And for you to actually acknowledge that you felt baited into a confrontation immediately before engaging in said confrontation? That just shows you to be either incredibly impulsive or flat-out dumb. You had to know that no matter what happened, that guy was going to do his best to punish you for it. You know they're scumbags, man why would you engage on that level?

And just for future reference attacking a cameraman is rarely the right answer.

One weird week

Things just keep getting crazier when it comes to Amanda Bynes. The actress/erstwhile rapper/ongoing trainwreck has been getting up to more lunacy than ever lately. 

It started when Bynes wreaked havoc on a Ritz-Carlton in New York City last week. It started from the get-go. Bynes apparently took umbrage with the front desk clerk, telling the woman that she was 'too ugly' to check her in and offering the services of her plastic surgeon, reducing the clerk to tears. According to hotel staff, Bynes then proceeded to smoke pot in her room every day while she was there, despite repeated warnings to abstain. 

It got so bad that the hotel reportedly booted her from the premises several hours before her scheduled checkout. For her part, Bynes insists that there was no weed smoking and that she left the hotel voluntarily.

Sure she did.

But the weirdness came to a head in California. Authorities were called to a Thousand Oaks retirement community when an allegedly drunk Bynes tried to get in, but was turned away as a trespasser. They did call her a cab, but she quickly got kicked out of it when she told the driver that she didn't have any money. She then returned to the retirement community, which is when authorities were called.

The very next night, the fire department responded to a report at a different Thousand Oaks home where they found Bynes standing next to a small fire that she apparently built in the home's driveway. The sheriff's department was called and after questioning Bynes, they took her into custody.

It has been a while since we've been subjected to a full-on celebrity meltdown. Britney Spears gave us a good one a few years back and we actually had to institute a Lindsay Lohan moratorium in this space due to all the crap she got up to, but there hasn't really been anyone else up to their level. Until now.

How has no one reined this woman in yet? She's behaving like an absolute lunatic. Insulting hotel workers? Breaking into retirement communities? Setting fires in random driveways? It's like she's trying to fill out some sort of nutjob bingo card. It's the kind of quickly escalating crazy that defies analysis; this is clearly a woman who is capable of anything at any time.

It's hard to think of a recent celebrity week that was anywhere close to this one in terms of sheer weirdness. While we certainly enjoy the insanity of building a random driveway campfire, you have to hope that this is the zenith (or nadir) of the Bynes Batst Bell Curve.

Thursday night, the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby was revealed. North, once before just a direction on a compass, now graces the newborn. To boot, her last name is West, releasing an onslaught of jokes. 

I find unusual names intriguing, but North fell flat with me. The fact that it was a noun did not bother me; it was something else. Noun names always sound odd when they are first introduced. Take Brooke and Willow for example. I thought they were far-fetched when I heard them, monikers only given by nature freaks. As time went on, however, I accepted them for what they were: phonetically pleasing names that evoked pleasant images.

Sex tape shenanigans

If you've been paying attention in recent years, you've noticed that MTV has seemingly gone out of their way to lower the bat when it comes to reality television. Shows like 'Jersey Shore' and the like have turned some unpleasant people into celebrities.

Farrah Abraham, a former star of the network's 'Teen Mom,' has been popping up in the news in recent weeks following some drunken club antics and a DUI arrest. But she's taken it to the next level a sex tape with XXX star James Deen.

A weekend to forget

This was not a great weekend for Miley Cyrus.

The former 'Hannah Montana' star had to deal with the law on two separate and unrelated occasions this weekend.

The first unfortunate incident an incident for which Cyrus is blameless came when some lunatic hopped the fence surrounding her Los Angeles home and started wandering around brandishing a pair of scissors. The intruder was apprehended and taken away. Scary stuff.

The second (and far more hilarious) incident took place Saturday night at a Hollywood nightclub. Cyrus and her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth allegedly wound up in an altercation with some people sitting near them at Beacher's Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel.

The alleged victim claims that he and his friends accidentally bumped Hemsworth's chair. Words were exchanged and tensions quickly escalated. According to the claimant, Hemsworth got in the man's face and Cyrus jumped up to separate the two men. When she did so, he alleges that she pushed him away and struck him in the face. Cyrus's representatives are calling the whole thing 'false and erroneous' and people who claim to have witnessed the argument say that Miley never took a swing. As it stands right now, Cyrus is considered a criminal battery suspect.

It's too early to say what really happened, but let's be real: it sure seems plausible, doesn't it? Miley Cyrus has done a lot of stupid things in her day; is it really that unreasonable to think she took a shot at a dude because he was mouthing off to her boyfriend? You'd think that someone with her history of poor judgment would think twice before getting into a screaming match with some rando, regardless of whether the argument ever progressed to the physical. We tried to let the crazy haircut slide, but this is a bridge too far.

We honestly thought you might be growing up a little, Miley. There was a nice stretch there when it seemed like you were getting your act together. Thenboom! It's all crazy head shaving and getting in fights with dudes at nightclubs.

Oh well. Next weekend has to be better, right?

Creepy with a side of weird

Kanye West is weird. We can all agree on that. His planet-sized ego combined with his general disdain for basic social mores makes him one of the most bizarre of pop culture's luminaries. So yeah, Kanye is weird.

But we couldn't possibly have known just how weird.

It has recently come to light that Kanye has been borderline obsessed with his current girlfriend Kim Kardashian since long before the pair started dating. Apparently, Kanye's 2009 song 'Knock You Down' contains several lyrics that were penned specifically to address Kardashian (who was dating NFL player Reggie Bush at the time).

It's the lyrics devoted to Kim on his latest single that have raised some eyebrows, however. The song 'Clique' contains the line 'Eat breakfast at Gucci/My girl a superstar all from a home movie,' a reference to Kardashian's infamous career launching pad of a sex tape. Sounds like he's okay with it, right?

Turns out he is way more than just okay with it.

Multiple sources have come forward to state that Kanye actually used to watch Kim's sex tape to get himself in the mood. Apparently, he even occasionally went so far as to watch the tape whilelet's call it 'entertaining' members of the opposite sex.

To each their own and all that, but holy crap - that is creepy. Did Kim know about Kanye's proclivity? If so, who told her? If Kanye told her, why? For that matter, why would he tell anybody at all? That's the sort of pathetic weirdness that you should really keep to yourself. Do you suppose he still watches the tape even though she's the one being'entertained'? Is she so delusional and self-absorbed that she views this as some sort of compliment?

Kim and Kanye a match made in batst crazy heaven.

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.
