Selena Gomez has a rebellious side too!
The seemingly sweet and innocent starlet stopped by an El Lay gas station to stock up on caffeine AND a pack of Djarum clove cigarettes.
Say what??! And we thought she was the perfect role model!
Gurlfriend must be having a rough day, so we'll forgive her!!!
We just pray she doesn't get hooked on the nasty, deadly habit…
..for her sake and her young, impressionable fans!

You should always tip your waitress!
20% is generous, 15% is acceptable, and an envelope full of crystal meth is…well, something only someone on crystal meth would ever think to do!
A server at a Seaside, Oregon restaurant got just that on her table after two patrons paid their bill!
She called the cops who then tracked down Ryan Bensen and Erica Manley who allegedly left the illicit drugs as a tip for her!
Oh how nice!
Police found more of the drug when searching Manley’s purse and the couple’s motel room.
Obviously, this act of “kindness” got them both thrown in jail!
C’mon, guys! Even Jesse Pinkman knows you don’t do that!

We don’t want to watch and yet we cannot turn away!

What the what the WHAT?!?
Aside from how strange this diet is, Jennifer’s doctors are now telling her how bad consuming mattresses is for her health! If she keeps it up, she could DIE!

WAHOOO!! This is EXCELLENT news!
After battling with drug and alcohol addiction, Zac Efron has been doing his best to stay clean, and it looks like he hit quite the milestone as he's been sober for 6 months!!
How do we know this? Well he's not exactly hiding his huge achievement!
Last week, Zac was spotting sitting court side at a Los Angeles Lakers game, and he was proudly wearing his blue sobriety chip around his neck like a medallion!
A blue chip is commonly given out to those who have managed to stay clean for half a year, and hopefully in a few weeks we'll see him wearing a copper chip around his neck when he hits the 7 month mark!
Congrats, Zac! We couldn't be more proud of you!

Miley Cyrus' bestie/assistant Cheyne Thomas apparently thinks life threatening drug addiction is just HIGHlarious.
Only one problem…it's not funny!
Maybe Cheyne can't be tamed either! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the insulting video (below)!
A few months ago, we were floored when Eminem opened up and was so candid with the world about his addiction problems.
We're glad that hasn't changed, because the more he reveals, the better the chance that someone will become inspired by his struggle… and he might even help someone who needs it!
He just spoke up again about his addiction to sleeping pills, and said his life could've gone down
