Miley Cyrus' Lack of Shame Will Save Her

Miley Cyrus stays calm in the wake of her bong-ripping scandal. Jennifer Grey has yet to recover from the pain of dancing with Bristol Palin. Kim Kardashian's new lover crosses a threshold: First photo op. Monday gossip soldiers on.

  • Miley Cyrus showed up to rehearsals for her new movie—So Undercover, co-starring a rather random Kelly Osbourne—mere hours after her bong hits hit the web. By all accounts, she is continuing life normally even as the entire national discourse turns on a dime because she smoked a bowl. It's impressive how impervious Miley is to tabloid scandal, trundling merrily along, toking and sexting like nothing ever happened, every time. Perhaps Disney finally created the ultimate plasticine idol, with skin made of Teflon so the injuries roll right off? Either that or early and repeat exposure to scandal shut off the part of her brain responsible for shame, which is definitely for the best, lest all this stuff catch up to and crush her at some point.

  • Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus' bong rips have made salvia both more popular than ever: Anecdotally, "the stuff Miley was smoking" is flying off drug dealers' shelves at a rate of "three times the usual tally"! And since everyone who smokes salvia does it exactly once, in the dank basement of a frat house at 4AM when they really should be studying, expect this to completely change American culture, one mindblowing PSYCH101 essay at a time.

  • Comely Susan Sarandon progeny Eva Amurri is engaged to her soccer player boyfriend. Mazel tov! [People]

  • Everyone thought Elizabeth Hurley was having an affair with a cricket star, but she's got an ironclad excuse: She and textile heir husband Arun Nayar separated "a few months ago"! Now begins the carefully orchestrated PR gambit wherein she walks the line between get "Rimesed" (portrayed as a man-hungry adulterer) and "Anistoned" (portrayed as a relationship-strangling eternal spinster).

  • Another day, another professional athlete lover for Kim Kardashian. Kim finally allowed herself to be photographed with New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries, a man who also hails from a family where everyone's name starts with a 'K.' Ksoul Kmates. [Us]

  • Why did Glee star Dianna Agron fire her entire management team? "Her boyfriend, actor Alex Pettyfer, told her to." This sounds suspiciously like a rumor that a just-fired management team would float. [P6]

  • Reverend Run officiated Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's wedding. [Us]

  • In the process of winning Dancing with the Stars, Jennifer Grey ruptured a disc in her back and recently had surgery to repair it. There is something wrong with a world where middle-aged women must throw out their backs out to prove they are nimbler than a teenage mother from Wasilla. [People]

  • Dina Lohan won't shut up about how mean Gwyneth Paltrow is for playing a character that made a joke at LiLo's expense on Glee, and gave yet another interview about it. Dina's also mad at the Hamburglar for stealing all those burgers, and at Cookie Monster for deleterious dietary role-modeling. [Radar]

  • Today is the day Taylor Swift turns 21. Did she celebrate with a post-midnight power hour? Let's check her Twitter: First, two girlfriends "knocked on my door—they brought a pizza with a lit 21 candle on it and bday hats. :)." Then, "I'm dancing around my room alone to @pink's greatest hits cd." So boring, that one. It's like she thinks, if she loosens up and has grown-up fun even once, the world will freak out and post the videos all over the internet and chastise her ad nauseum! [Radar, @TaylorSwift13]
