CELEBNAME

Miley Cyrus, who recently quashed breakup rumors when she was spotted out with fiance Liam Hemsworth earlier this week, has come to the defense of marijuana smokers in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, maintaining that it's safer than alcohol. She never admits to being a pot smoker, but she all but confirmed it when asked. "You can't ask someone that and expect them to say yes. I did a song with Snoop Dogg called 'Ashtrays and Heartbreak,' so people can put it together for themselves," the 20-year-old (story)

The singer also just released her new video, "We Can't Stop," which focuses on an all-night party with friends who grope each other and do a lot of "twerking." Despite the song's questionable lyrics that seem to allude to drugs (she says it's not about drugs), there is very little actual partying other than some dancing and one guy's crotch putting off a lot of smoke. Wonder what that symbolizes? (story)

18-year-old aspiring actress/model Courtney Stodden, who married actor Doug Hutchison, 53, two years ago, has gone under the knife to have her C-cup breasts biggerized into a DD-cup. She says she feels "more like a woman" and claims that she had previously used push-up bras and other contraptions to make it appear that her previously unaltered boobs were bigger. She also told Fox411 in an interview about her chest that she's not ruling out releasing her sex tape. "Never say never," she told the website. (story)

Sad news: actor James Gandolfini, star of HBO's hit mob drama "The Sopranos" has died after suffering a "massive heart attack" while on a trip to Italy. He was just 51-year-old. Gandolfini was reportedly in the country to attend the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily and brought his son Michael, who just graduated from 8th grade, along for the trip. (story)

Gandolfini's former castmates Loraine Bracco, Steven Van Zandt, Edie Falco and others have begun to pay tribute to the star and are mourning the loss of the actor. (story)

Hollywood stars such as Olivia Wilde, who starred with the actor in "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," Susan Sarandon, who starred with him in 2005's "Romance & Cigarettes, and Russell Crowe, who met Gandolfini in the early 90s have also paid tribute. (story)

The first trailer for "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" was released this week, promising Ron Burgundy hasn't changed much even though the San Diego news crew has moved on to 24-hour news in the Big Apple in the 1980s. He's also begun an interracial relationship, which makes for a very awkward dinner with his new girlfriend's family. Check out the trailer. (story)

More drama for rapper Kanye West as he's been called out for including a "distasteful" lyric about Parkinson's disease in his track "On Sight." The bigger question is, has society just gotten way too sensitive with all the PC stuff lately? (story)
