Lindsay Lohan Opens Up On ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’
Oprah Winfrey sat down with LINDSAY LOHAN, where she asked about all six trips to rehab, her time in jail, and even her scary drug use.
“My intention is to just, you know, be me — be open and honest,” Lindsay started the interview with. 
She admitted that in the beginning she didn't take rehab seriously.  Oprah asked why, after five times in rehab from 2007-2013, the sixth time was different, as Lindsay claims.
“I’ve just hit a wall,” Lindsay explained.   “I’m not taking Adderall – that’s a big deal,” Lindsay revealed, telling Oprah that she began taking it for ADD and became addicted. 
However, now Lindsay is not using any drugs, she claims — only vitamins and medicine for acid reflux disease. 
As far as the future of her acting career, she told Oprah, “I have to regain the trust of people in my career that have their doubts, and I fully respect that,” she said. “I hate that label and that title [of child star gone bad]. That’s not what I ever aspired to be." 
It appears that now is the start of something new for her.
“I haven’t felt the way I feel now in a very long time,” Lindsay said. “I feel whole again. I have such a desire to want to keep this feeling and want to stay this way. I’m willing to do whatever it takes . I really want to be on set again, that’s what feeds me!”  (HollywoodLife.com)
Chris Brown Has to Do 1,000 More Hours of Community Labor
Earlier this year, the L.A. District Attorney accused CHRIS BROWN of FAKING some of the community service he supposedly did to atone for assaulting RIHANNA.  Well, the judge agreed.
And so on Friday, Chris was ordered to complete 1,000 MORE HOURS.  And he specified that this had to be community LABOR, which could include beach clean-up, graffiti removal or similar work. 
Tom Cruise Wears Thongs During His Stunt Scenes
At 51, TOM CRUISE is in ridiculously good shape.  And he STILL does a lot of his own stunts.  He's one of the few actors of ANY age who can say that.
So what's his secret?  Maybe it's the THONGS.  Sources say he DEMANDS them for his stunt scenes . . . and he has to wear a new one every time.  There have been times when the wardrobe department has been asked to stock as many as 50 of them.
One source says, quote, "He's pretty insistent about having a new thong every time.  We do have a laugh but he sees it as dedication to his craft."
Another adds, quote, "He was embarrassed at first but he sees it as a way of improving his flexibility as he gets older."
It's On! Between Kim Kardashian and Katie Couric
Last week KATIE COURIC said she didn't understand why the Kardashians were famous. 
During an interview, Katie was discussing the Kardashians and she said, quote, "I don't understand . . . why are they so famous?  I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested."
On Friday, Kim responded by posting a picture of the pajamas that Katie had recently sent Kim and KANYE WEST as a BABY GIFT.
She also posted Katie's note, which congratulated them on the birth of the baby, and added, quote, "And may I humbly suggest you continue the K tradition."  
Robin Thicke Has Sued Marvin Gaye's Family for Claiming "Blurred Lines" Is Similar to Marvin's Music
ROBIN THICKE has sued MARVIN GAYE'S family and FUNKADELIC . . . for entertaining the notion that "Blurred Lines" rips off Marvin's song "Got to Give It Up", and Funkadelic's "Sexy Ways".
PHARRELL WILLIAMS and T.I. . . . who collaborated on the song . . . are also collaborating on the lawsuit.
The three of them say they have, quote, "the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies . . . [but must] reluctantly file this action in the face of multiple adverse claims."
The suit argues Gaye's family is broadly laying claim to, quote, "an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work."
It goes on, quote, "The basis of the Gaye defendants' claims is that [they] 'feel' or 'sound' the same.  Being reminiscent of a 'sound' is not copyright infringement.  The intent in producing 'Blurred Lines' was to evoke an era . . .
"There are no similarities between plaintiffs' composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements.  Plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else's composition."
For the record, nobody has threatened to sue Robin over the song . . . he's doing this as a preventive measure because he's worried they might.
There's been no comment from Gaye's family . . . or anyone from Funkadelic.  
Jennifer Lopez's Boyfriend Says J-Lo Is Returning to "American Idol"

E! News recently asked Casper if J-Lo was coming back to "Idol", and he responded, quote, "Yes."
A Plane Carrying Hair Bands Ratt and Dokken Almost Crashed
'80s Hair Metal Crisis Alert:  Over the weekend, we almost lost both RATT and DOKKEN when a plane carrying both bands was forced to make an emergency landing.
Dokken bassist Sean McNabb says that smoke appeared in the plane's cockpit when they reached 7,000 feet . . . so the pilots put on oxygen masks, and turned it around.  He said it smelled like it could've been an electrical fire.
Fortunately, they landed fine, and no one was hurt.
The bands were making a short, 170-mile trip across Illinois for a show in the Chicago area on Saturday.  After the plane mishap, they hopped in some SUVs and still made it to the gig on-time.
