Miley Cyrus is proving once again that she can't be tamed. (I know, I know, so 2010...)
For her 19th birthday last week, the starlet threw a fete at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with a number of famous faces in attendance, including friend Kelly Osbourne, who presented the birthday girl with one creative cake. As the sparkler-strewn confection was wheeled out, Miley was caught on tape (obtained by The Daily) saying, "You know you’re a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake—you know you smoke way too much f---in’ weed."
The incident sparked plenty of headlines over the weekend, despite the fact that Kelly tweeted yesterday that the whole thing was a gag. "A JOKE! it makes me sick that @MileyCyrus so called 'friends' would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not!" she wrote.
Even the most casual Miley observer can tell you that this is just the latest in a line of controversies involving the singing starlet. Let's take a look:
Everyone loves a man (or woman!) in uniform—and that goes for Hollywood's A-list, too. Just a week after "Friends With Benefits" co-star Justin Timberlake made good on his promise to attend a Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, VA, Mila Kunis hopped a plane to North Carolina for her own date with U.S. Marine Sgt. Scott Moore. The actress accepted her invitation to the event over the summer, when Sgt. Moore's heartfelt request for her company became a hit on YouTube.
Mila avoided the media during her visit to Greenville, N.C., in favor of quietly enjoying the evening's celebration of military history, but a couple of photos made their way onto the web at People, showing that Mila's look for the ball included a simple black dress and some seriously smoky eye makeup. And it looks like the pair avoided any first-date awkwardness swimmingly; in our favorite pic, she's animatedly talking while her date looks on with a big, gorgeous grin. Not that we blame him! If we'd singlehandedly started the whole "asking celebrities to military events via YouTube" trend, we'd be pretty pleased with ourselves, too.
I demand a recount.
People magazine revealed its pick for 2011's Sexiest Man Alive today, naming 36-year-old Bradley Cooper the hunkiest of all hunks. It's an appointment that sparked plenty of lively discussion in the MTV newsroom, mostly because it seemed so oddly timed.
To be sure, Bradley is quite the looker—you'll get no argument from me on this point. But the honor would have been much more fitting last year, when Bradley was riding high from the success of 2009's "The Hangover" and starring in flicks like "Valentine's Day" and "The A-Team." By comparison, this has been a quiet year for the star.
Conversely, you know who had an amazingly big year? Like, the kind of year that inspires countless internet memes and breakfast treats fashioned in his likeness? Ryan Gosling, that's who.
Justin Timberlake has walked his share of big-deal red carpets, but according to JT himself, his most exciting appearance to date was one where the spotlight wasn't on him.
After attending the Marine Corps Ball in Richmond, Justin—who appeared on the arm of Cpl. Kelsey De Santis—took to his website to describe the evening as "one of the most moving... I’ve ever had." (He also posted a photo taken during the festivities, and he looked quite dapper next to his uniformed date. Only... dude, what's with the chin scruff? That is soooo not military-issue!)
You know how people like to say there's a little bit of truth behind every joke? Well, I think this clip of Jonah Hill is the epitome of that philosophy.
If you watch "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" (or have simply logged on to the internet within the last month), you probably heard about Jonah's talk show rant in which he called out "Glee" star Matthew Morrison for making him the butt of a joke not once, but twice (and in a very public manner). Watch the original clip if you need more background.
Matthew responded in kind with his own video egging on Jonah, which leaves us now wondering where the whole situation stands. And apparently we're not the only ones as Jonah told our own Josh Horowitz in a segment from his upcoming MTV First: "The Sitter" that he's still a bit confused about the whole thing.
Hilary Duff's maternal instincts are already kicking!
When the actress/author stopped by the MTV Newsroom last week to promote her just-released second novel, "Devoted," she told our own Christina Garibaldi that she thought she was pregnant with a boy. "Everyone else says it's a girl, but I think it's a boy," she said."I don't care what I get, but every time I think about it or dream about it, I see a boy."
Well, the 24-year-old's dreams are coming true: According to People, Hilary just revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that she and husband Mike Comrie are indeed having a boy!
It's no secret that Justin Bieber has a legion of fans around the world (hey, Beliebers!), but it should be known that he has many an admirer on the A-list, including "Ides of March" star and noted fan, Evan Rachel Wood.
At "The Ides of March" premiere this week, we asked cast members who they'd pick as their presidential running mate, and when Rachel picked Justin for the job, we had to ask about his just-announced Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe.

Hollywood continues to mourn the loss of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. It's hard to imagine anyone who wasn't touched by one of the icon's innovations: from the category-changing iPod to the Pixar films we just can't help watching over and over again. But a surprising celebrity testament from "Glee" star Harry Shum Jr. especially touched our hearts.
Before he was a singing-and-dancing glee clubber, Harry was part of Apple's memorable iPod silhouette commercials, an experience he credits with boosting his career (and sparking an undying love of all things Apple). Here's his story:
We've long known mega babe/masterful actor Ryan Gosling is a humble sort of fellow. Heck, the guy can't even catch a glimpse of F--- Yeah! Ryan Gosling posts without turning bright red and giggling like a school girl. So it comes as no surprise that when we caught up with him at the junket for "Drive" today and inquired about his recent YouTube heroics, he was characteristically low-key and self-deprecating about the whole affair.
As you'll recall, Ryan was caught on video breaking up a fight in New York City and was unofficially declared our national hero, even though he's Canadian. Except, Ryan doesn't think of himself as a hero at all. In fact, he's rather embarrassed by the whole thing.
There were plenty of water-cooler moments during last night's MTV Video Music Awards, but the one that undoubtedly left the most tongues wagging was Beyoncé's onstage reveal that she and hubby Jay-Z are expecting their first child together. Congrats to the soon-to-be parents!
Now, we can only guess at the kinds of feverish preparations underway in anticipation of the arrival of Baby Knowles-Carter, but if we were the wagering sort, we'd bet it includes copious reading bouts of "What to Expect When You're Expecting" punctuating by shopping outings for infant-size leotards. But, really, we don't think Beyoncé needs to stress it. She's got plenty of maternal musings stockpiled into her prolific song catalog. So, as Auntie Crush's baby gift to Bey and Jay, we've rounded up five gleaming gems after the jump!
