Miley Cyrus Hospitalized

  • Miley Cyrus was hospitalized in Kansas City, Missouri today due to a “severe allgeric reaction to antibiotics,” according to the Sprint Center, which canceled her the show from her Bangerz tour. The singer tweeted a pic of herself from her hospital bed playing with an octopus toy. Sounds about right. Get well soon, Miley! [ABC News]
  • Cameron Diaz doesn’t believe in monogamy, she’s revealed in the latest issue of InStyle. “I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous,” Cam said. “But we live in a society where it’s been ingrained in us to do these thigns.” [Page Six]

Katherine Heigl Sues Duane Reade & 8 Other Ridiculous Celeb-Related Lawsuits

Katherine Heigl once had an extremely promising career, starring on “Grey’s Anatomy” and in a number of (shitty) rom-coms, but she hasn’t been able to get a job recently thanks to the terrible reputation she and her manager mom have for their diva-like demands. I don’t think her latest headline-making stunt is going to win her any fans — she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for six million dollars because they tweeted the above photo. I guess her argument is that they used her image to promote their stores without her permission and without paying her, which isn’t okay because she is “a highly successful television and motion picture actress, producer and celebrity” in “high demand.” RECORD SCRATCH. Have a stadium full of seats, Katie Heigl. Highly successful TV and movie actresses don’t need to sue drug store chains because they tweeted a photo. Also, I’m pretty sure Katherine Heigl isn’t worth six million. Ugh, this lawsuit gives me secondhand embarrassment like whoa. [TMZ]

We like in a litigious country so this is of course not the only totally stupid and ridiculous lawsuit related to a celeb’s name and image. Here are a few more…
