“Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!”
— Lindsay Lohan admits on Twitter over the weekend that she did, in fact, fail a recent drug test. The troubled actress may be facing more jail time as a result of breaking probation.

A week before she went to jail, Lindsay Lohan did an interview and photo shoot with Vanity Fair. Now, Lohan’s sultry cover is out just days after she has been released from rehab. Well-timed, Lohan. Well-timed.
Her spiel, the blog Styleite noted, is “typical Lindsay. Denial, denial, denial.” Everything you think you know about her is wrong! Lindsay is not an alcoholic, she says, because her putting on her alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet “would have ended me up in detox, in the emergency room, because I would have had to come down from all the things that people say I’m taking and my father says I’m taking.” Lindsay’s not a drug addict either, she insists. “I’ve never abused prescription drugs. I never have—never in my life,” she said. “I have no desire to. That’s not who I am.” Keep reading »
Las Vegas police arrested Paris Hilton for cocaine possession on Friday night after she and her boyfriend, nightclub owner Cy Waits, arose suspicion during a traffic stop for “hotboxing” their car. This is the third time this summer Paris has been busted for drugs: In July, Paris was caught with marijuana at the World Cup in South Africa, and she was also held by police in Corisca when they found pot in her purse. Paris managed to escape charges both times, but a cocaine bust might not go away so easily. Cute mug shot, though! [People] Keep reading »
“I’ve never smoked [pot]. I guess if it was going to happen, it would’ve happened when I was younger. But that was never an effective or interesting form of rebellion for me. Because everybody did it … But it’s not like I haven’t tried. I didn’t smoke—it was a lollipop. Here’s what happened. I was at a party, and I’d been kind of sick recently. I was in the hospital and on some really heavy antibiotics. But I went to this party anyway, and I was in the bathroom the whole night, on the floor. I was just so ill. Somebody at the party was like, ‘The only thing that’s going to help your nausea is marijuana.’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t have any!’ But then I remembered, somebody had given me a pot lollipop. People give me pot all the time. I put them up in my closet, on the very, very top shelf, where I keep all my shoes, just so my kids wouldn’t find them.”
—Mary-Louise Parker, who plays a pot dealer mom on “Weeds,” explains her complicated relationship with marijuana in real life. But back the truck up—a pot lollipop? Has anyone ever heard of that? [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
“I was completely mental and had just been through so much … I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don’t want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It’s in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster. … All I will say is I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge. My mother knew the truth about that day, and she screamed so loud on the other end of the phone, I’ll never forget it. And she said, ‘I’m coming to get you.’ … I cried. I told her I thought my life was over and I have no hope and I’ve worked so hard, and I knew I was good. What would I do now? And she said, ‘I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours. And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some ass.’”
— Lady Gaga is elusive with the details about her past drug use, but tells Vanity Fair that her mother took her to her 82-year-old grandmother’s house in West Virginia to sober up. In the past, Gaga has admitted she did “bags and bags of cocaine.” [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
George Clooney‘s Italian actress girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, has already made headlines for claiming Jennifer Aniston looks like raggedy old Iggy Pop and playing a nun who flashes her boobies in a film. Now court documents reveal that a prostitute employed by The Club, a nightclub in Milan, Italy, gave verbal testimony in October 2008 claiming she had done cocaine with Clooney’s girl.
We are shocked. Cocaine and prostitutes, and Charlie Sheen is not even involved? Keep reading »
Paris Hilton has found herself in a bit of trouble for the second time this month. Everyone’s favorite heiress was at an airport on the French island of Corsica when officials found less than a gram of marijuana in her purse. She was held briefly before being released without any charges. This comes just a short while after she was detained in South Africa, after allegedly getting high at a World Cup game. Hilton’s rep swears that both happenings were purely misunderstandings, but I don’t know how many times you can throw that excuse around until it just doesn’t work anymore. What, is it sage she’s carrying around to protect herself from bad vibes? Do you think this will be the last we will hear of Paris and her herb of choice, or do you think getting caught with pot is just part of the Hilton lifestyle? [People] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Lindsay Lohan checked into the facility where (I think) she belongs: rehab. Lohan went to the Pickford Lofts, a fancy, schmancy sober-living house in Los Angeles. Pickford Lofts was founded by Robert Shapiro, a lawyer who defended O.J. Simpson in the ’90s and whose son died from an overdose in 2005. Apparently, Lindz is hoping the judge will reduce her jail sentence or toss the sentence entirely, provided she stays in rehab. She’s only been in rehab for 24 hours now and already she has received visits from her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, mom Dina and sister Ali, her assistant, and her alleged flame, Eilat Anschel. The assistant was toting a case of Sprite, toilet paper, and bags from Blick Art Supply.
Even if the judge says “no way, José” to Lindsay’s last-ditch attempt to avoid jail — hasn’t this girl been in rehab, like, three times already? — her stint at Pickford Lofts won’t be for naught. She definitely will need to sober up before she is required to check into the slammer on Tuesday. [People, New York Daily News] Keep reading »
