Justin Bieber Was High and on Xanax When He Was Arrested in Miami
The toxicology results are in and it's official: JUSTIN BIEBER had pot and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in his system when he was pulled over for allegedly drag-racing in Miami last week.
We already knew Justin failed a field sobriety test . . . but we've also been hearing that he had very little alcohol in his system.
Meanwhile, in a police report from Justin's arrest, cops describe him as, quote, "excited, talkative, insulting [and] cocky."
Bruno Mars Isn't Nervous About His Super Bowl Show
Bruno Mars tells E! he's not nervous about performing at halftime of the Super Bowl. He also isn't promising too many bells and whistles with his show.
He says, "I ain't scared if that's what you think. Spectacle-wise? I don't do trapeze and all that stuff. I hope to get people dancing and smiling. If you ever come to one of my shows, it's just us up there. We've got these songs and our instruments and I'm hoping that's enough."
Is Demi Lovato Engaged?
Hollywoodlife.com claims DEMI LOVATO and WILMER VALDERRAMA are engaged or at least on their way.
A saleswoman at Tiffany & Co. tells the site, “He chose a really classic, beautiful ring, Demi is going to be a happy girl when she gets it. He didn’t say what it was for but he was really excited and happy — he seemed like any other guy getting ready to pop the question.”
So if Wilmer hasn't popped the question yet, this saleswoman has ruined the surprise for Demi.
Sandra Bullock's Secret to Staying Thin
The Star claims SANDRA BULLOCK stays thin by eating with a cocktail fork.
A source tells the tabloid, “Sandra figured out that she eats smaller portions when she uses a cocktail fork. It forces her to eat more slowly, and she winds up eating less. Sandra is now telling pals that the tiny fork is the secret to her success.”
An Organization Has Dropped Scarlett Johansson as Ambassador Due to her Super Bowl Commercial
SCARLETT JOHANSSON has stepped down as an ambassador for Oxfam International, due to a disagreement over her Super Bowl ad for SodaStream. It's not because it's too sexy. It's because the group takes issue with how SodaStream does business.
SodaStream's main production plant is in the West Bank. And Oxfam believes companies that do business there, quote, "further the ongoing poverty and denial of rights of the Palestinian communities that we work to support."

The White House Has to Respond to a Petition Asking for Justin Bieber to be Deported
If you start a petition on the official White House website, WhiteHouse.gov, and it gets 100,000 signatures within 30 days, then the White House WILL respond to said petition.
And that means that the White House now has to wade into the issue of whether or not to DEPORT JUSTIN BIEBER.
Because last week, someone started a petition to deport him and revoke his green card. And it got those 100,000 signatures in SIX DAYS. (Last we checked, it had about 174,000 signatures.)
The petition describes Justin as "dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing", and says he's endangering the lives of our citizens and setting a terrible example for our kids.
We all know that when the White House does respond, they'll say something generic, like how this is an issue for the police and the courts. But it'll still be fun to see exactly how they handle it.
Justin Bieber is Now Being Charged With Assault . . . But He Pleaded Not Guilty to DUI
JUSTIN BIEBER continues to be The Story That Will Not Die. Here are the latest developments . . .
Prosecutors in Toronto have charged Justin with CRIMINAL ASSAULT for allegedly beating up a limo driver back in December. The driver was reportedly hit in the back of the head several times while taking Justin and his posse to a hockey game.
We're assuming Justin was the assailant, since he was the one charged. Justin turned himself in yesterday, and was released.
Kim and Kanye Don't Want Bruce Jenner in Their Wedding If He Has a Sex Change
We have no idea if all those rumors about BRUCE JENNER surgically becoming a woman are true. But if they are, this is kind of harsh . . .
The "Star" tabloid claims KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST don't want him in their wedding if he is indeed a woman . . . or in the process of becoming a woman . . . by the time they're ready to get hitched.
It's mostly Kanye though. A source says, quote, "He told Kim that if Bruce is not a guy on the day they tie the knot, he doesn't want him to be part of the ceremony."
Cameron Diaz on Taco Bell: "Just 'Cause You Can Chew it and Swallow it and Poop it Out Doesn't Mean It's Food"
CAMERON DIAZ likes Taco Bell. But she doesn't eat it because she CARES about her health.
She says, quote, "I saw a Taco Bell yesterday . . . it made my stomach scream. If I had nothing else to do, I would be, like, 'Three bean-and-cheese burritos and give me some nachos with extra cheese sauce!' I would so kill that [crap].
"But what I've learned is that just 'cause you can chew it and swallow it and poop it out doesn't mean it's food." (Cameron just released a book called "The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body".)
The "Frozen" Soundtrack Is Back at #1
The soundtrack to the movie "Frozen" is back on top of the albums chart after selling 97,000 copies last week. It easily beat the week's #2 album, the "2014 Grammy Nominees" compilation, which sold 59,000 copies.

Billy Ray Cyrus Thinks He Knows How to Help Justin Bieber
A lot of people are offering help and advice to JUSTIN BIEBER. But the one person he probably SHOULDN'T listen to . . . other than his own parents . . . is MILEY CYRUS' dad.
Yet BILLY RAY thinks he knows what Justin needs. He says, quote, "I would just invite him to come down and chill out with me, maybe in Tennessee.
"Let’s go up to the teepee, build a fire, step away and just, you know, maybe take a break for a little bit, just think about what's important. Get back to life . . . Build a fire, count the deer and the hawks and relax a little bit."
Meanwhile, USHER and Justin's manager returned to the U.S. from Panama . . . where they supposedly held an "intervention" for Justin. But they refused to speak to the paparazzi.
The media mogul celebrated with friends at a SoulCycle spinning class on Friday, according to E! Online. "I just had the best birthday experience ever at SoulCyle," Oprah said in an Instagram video, seen wearing a "Happy Birthday Oprah" shirt.
Vin Diesel Explains His Latest Dancing Video
VIN DIESEL posted a video of himself on Facebook yesterday. Dancing. For seven and a half minutes.
In between grooving to KATY PERRY'S"Dark Horse" and BEYONCÉ'S"Drunk In Love", he explained that he was in a dancing mood because he'd heard that "Riddick" topped the DVD sales chart, and another installment in the franchise was in the works.
Ellen DeGeneres is Producing a New Gay Sitcom
ELLEN DEGENERES is producing a new gay-themed sitcom for NBC. It's about gay and straight best friends who decide to have a baby together . . . but things get complicated when one of them finds the love of their life.
It's an interesting choice, since NBC HAD a gay-themed sitcom last season. It was called "The New Normal", and it was about a gay couple who recruit a woman to have a baby for them. But they canceled it after just one season.
The Grammys Came in at #1 and the Pro Bowl was #7 in the Ratings

Daft Punk and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Were the Big Winners at the Grammys
DAFT PUNK were the big winners at last night's "Grammys", taking home FIVE trophies including Album of the Year.
Of course they didn't make any acceptance speeches because they're, you know, ROBOTS, and they were wearing those silly helmets all night.
Old-school singer-songwriter PAUL WILLIAMS gave the speech for the Album of the Year win, because he wrote a bunch of stuff for the disc. PHARRELL WILLIAMS and NILE RODGERS did the talking the other times.
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS picked up FOUR Grammys, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song. That's right, they spoiled BOTH of KANYE WEST'S chances to win a Grammy this year.
JAY Z came into the night leading the pack with nine nominations, but he only came away with ONE Grammy, for Best Rap / Sung Collaboration. And that had to be bittersweet, because he won it for "Holy Grail", his track with JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
See, he was also nominated in that same category with BEYONCÉ for "Part 2 (On the Run)". So he Grammy-blocked his own wife.

Was Justin Bieber's Arrest Exaggerated? He May Not Have Been Drunk or Drag Racing After All
JUSTIN BIEBER'S DUI arrest last week can't be swept under the rug . . . yet . . . but some of the details may not have been quite as bad as you may have heard.
For starters, some "source" tells CNN that Justin blew .011% and .014% in two Breathalyzer tests at the police station. That's significantly below the general .08% legal limit. Since Justin is under 21 . . . that doesn't even really matter.
But still, even Florida's "zero tolerance" law for underage drivers requires a reading of .02%. So .011% is a barely measurable amount.
So maybe Justin wasn't legally drunk . . . but he did admit to also smoking pot and taking prescription meds . . . and he FAILED a field sobriety test.
So he probably WAS driving under the influence, and he probably WAS too impaired to drive.
Also, even though Justin was not charged with speeding, the arresting officer said that was his reason for stopping Justin and testing his sobriety.
However, the head of the exotic car rental company that owns the yellow Lamborghini Justin was driving told CNN that the GPS tracking system in the car indicated that Justin didn't exceed 55 miles-per-hour in the 15 minutes before the stop.
Justin was stopped in a 30 mile-per-zone . . . so even if he WAS speeding, the notion of it being a "drag race" is being called into question. In fact, the car's GPS said Justin was "steady" at between 27 and 34 miles-per-hour on that road.
Kristen Stewart Plans to Shave Her Head and Tattoo Her Skull
KRISTEN STEWART has an interesting item on her bucket list. She says, quote, "I'm definitely going to shave my head before I die. I will definitely tattoo my head while it’s shaved before my hair grows back.
"I'm not sure which part, probably the bottom quadrant in the back. I don't know what the tattoo would be, yet. Still thinking."
"Ride Along" Was #1 Again, While "I, Frankenstein" Didn't Even Crack the Top 5
KEVIN HART and ICE CUBE'S cop comedy "Ride Along" was #1 at the box office again this weekend, pulling in another $21.2 million. That brings its two-week total to $75.4 million.
There wasn't much competition though. The one new movie in theaters was "I, Frankenstein", which had a dismal opening with just $8.3 million in 6th place. Here are this week's Top 5 movies:
1. "Ride Along", $21.2 million. Up to $75.4 million in its 2nd week.
2. "Lone Survivor", $12.6 million. Up to $93.6 million in its 5th week.
3. "The Nut Job", $12.3 million. Up to $40.3 million in its 2nd week.
4. "Frozen", $9 million. Up to $348 million in its 10th week.
5. "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit", $8.8 million. Up to $30.2 million in its 2nd week.
Justin Bieber Was Released on $2,500 Bail Plus What Role Did His Parents Play in This?
JUSTIN BIEBER was arrested after drag racing in Miami Beach early yesterday morning . . . and was charged with DUI, resisting arrest, and driving on an expired license. Here's the latest . . .
After cooling his heels in jail for several hours, Justin made a brief appearance before a judge, who set a "standard" bail of $2,500. Obviously, he didn't have any problem coming up with that. He probably had that much ON him, in cash.
Justin's parents appear to be ENABLERS in all this.
Justin allegedly admitted to cops that he drank some alcohol, smoked some dope, and took some prescription medication at some point on Wednesday night.
TMZ says he told them that his mom, Pattie Mallette, gave him the prescription medication he took . . . and that it was an anti-anxiety drug, like Xanax, but that he didn't know what it was, because he just takes whatever she gives him.
It's unclear if Justin has a prescription for whatever he was taking. If he DOES . . . even if his mom handles it . . . he's probably in the clear on that. If he DOESN'T . . . that's illegal, and he could be in even more trouble.
Meanwhile, Justin's dad, Jeremy Bieber, was actually with him all day. So-called sources say Jeremy was one of the people in the SUVs that reportedly blocked traffic to clear a stretch of road for Justin to drag race.
Plus, he was also spotted at the nightclub Justin was at just before the arrest, so there's a VERY good chance Jeremy knew Justin's condition when he got behind the wheel.
Should Justin Bieber Be Deported?
Many people on Twitter are calling for JUSTIN BIEBER to be deported back to his native Canada. The hashtag #DeportBieber was even trending.
If you agree, there's even a petition you can sign on Celeb blogger Perez Hilton's site.
It reads: "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society."
What's on the Menu for the Grammy Awards Sunday
CBS says this year's Grammy artists will be munching on ahi tuna sandwiches, roasted salmon, beef short rib and pork belly teriyaki backstage.

Is Taylor Swift Depressed?
The Star and Celeb Dirty Laundry claim TAYLOR SWIFT is depressed about being single.
A source tells the sites, “She’s incredibly down. She just can’t seem to find the right guy. She said, ‘I just don’t get it. Why can’t I keep a guy? I feel like I’m turning into Jennifer Aniston. It’s just so unfair.’
Supposedly, Jared Leto ran for the hills after she chatted him up at a Golden Globes after party; Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel hasn’t called her back after they went to a New Year’s Eve party together; and actor Douglas Booth totally brushed her off at a West Hollywood bash last November.”
"I, Frankenstein" and "Gimme Shelter" Are in Theaters

Kate wanted the girls to dispel rumors that their home life is totally screwed up, but even when they were asked direct questions, they REFUSED TO TALK.
Kate seemed pretty humiliated. At one point she even told her daughter, quote, "Mady, your words. It's your chance . . . spit it out."
Kate's attempt to goad the kids into talking while clearly holding back a tidal wave of anger and embarrassment were PRICELESS. When Mady did finally talk, she cleared things up a little.
The girls were asked if people have the wrong impression of their family, and she said, quote, "I wouldn't say 'wrong', I would just say not, like, the full story."
She added, quote, "A lot of people think that filming our show has damaged us, but it’s only really helped." And both girls said they'd like to do another TV show.

ABC is airing this year's ceremony live on Sunday, March 2nd. ELLEN DEGENERES is hosting for the second time. She also handled the 2007 show.
Shia LaBeouf Headbutted a Guy in a London Bar
The self-destruction of SHIA LABEOUF continues. There's now video of Shia headbutting a guy last night at a bar called the Hobgoblin in South London.
Apparently, the guy said something about Shia's girlfriend's mom . . . or at least Shia THOUGHT he did. Because in the video Shia starts demanding to know what the guy said.
Then Shia headbutts him . . . although it's kind of more of a head-to-head SHOVE. Then Shia puts his face right up to the guy's ear and yells, "What did you just say?" four times.
Then a girl who MIGHT be Shia's girlfriend yells at him to stop and pulls him away.
This isn't Shia's first bar fight. Heck, it's not even his first fight at this particular bar. He also got into a brawl at the Hobgoblin in November of 2012 when somebody took his baseball hat.

Robert Pattinson Has Sold the House He Shared with Kristen Stewart

The house is 4,026 square feet; has 3.5 bathrooms; a pool and a giant terrace.
Late last year, rumors spread that Pattinson and Stewart were hanging out once again.
But those turned out to be false. They have not seen each other in months.
There's Now a Religion Based on Kanye West
Believe it or not, KANYE WEST isn't the only person who worships Kanye West. There's now a RELIGION based on him. It's called Yeezianity, and while the whole thing sounds like a big joke, it DOES have its own website. (???)
The site bills Yeezianity as, quote, "The Best Church of All Time!!!!!"
Followers of Yeezianity believe that, quote, "The one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity."
The group's founder claims this is for real, but he has chosen to remain anonymous. Here's one of the reasons he's so into Kanye . . . quote, "He is the most honest person in our culture. He has the highest moral standards and highest integrity.
The Creator of "How I Met Your Mother" Is Apologizing for This Week's Offensive Episode
Monday's episode of "How I Met Your Mother" had JASON SEGEL'S character going to Shanghai, where some of the show's other stars were dressed up to look like Asians.
That offended some viewers . . . who criticized the show and started the Twitter hash-tag #HowIMetYourRacism.
And yesterday, the show apologized. Co-creator Carter Bays Tweeted, quote, "We set out to make a silly and unabashedly immature homage to Kung Fu movies, a genre we've always loved. But along the way we offended people.
"We're deeply sorry, and we're grateful to everyone who spoke up, to make us aware of it. We try to make a show that's universal . . . that anyone can watch and enjoy. We fell short of that this week, and feel terrible about it."
Steven Spielberg is Our Most Influential Celebrity
"Forbes" has released its annual list of the Most Influential Celebrities, and this year, STEVEN SPIELBERG was #1. Apparently, some of it can be attributed to the success of his last movie, "Lincoln".
But of course, it also has a LOT to do with his long track record and name-recognition, which is essentially how this list is generated.
According to "Forbes" and E-Poll Market Research, Steven has a 47% influential rating, which means 47% of Americans . . . or at least 47% of the polling sample . . . rate him as "influential."
Here are the 10 Most Influential Celebrities of the Year, along with their influential ratings:
1. Steven Spielberg, 47%
2. Oprah Winfrey, 45%
3. George Lucas, 43%
4. Ron Howard, 41%
5. A tie between Martin Scorsese and Dr. Mehmet Oz, with 40% apiece.
7. A three-way tie between Barbara Walters, Bono and comic book legend Stan Lee, with 37% apiece
Justin Bieber's House Was Raided, and One of His Friends Was Caught With Drugs
Police RAIDED JUSTIN BIEBER'S house yesterday to find evidence that he egged his neighbor's home last week.
Seriously . . . 12 cops in eight police cars responded to an egging report by showing up with a search warrant. Justin didn't answer questions because he didn't have a lawyer present. Police say he hasn't been charged or exonerated yet.
One thing they're looking for is video from Justin's own surveillance cameras that shows him in the act of vandalizing his neighbor's house. They're also looking for anything else that links Justin to the incident, like egg residue.
We don't know if they found any of that, but they DID find DRUGS. But it looks like Justin won't take the fall for that. At least not yet. Because it was his friend LIL ZA who was holding.
Police initially said the drug was COCAINE, but now there's word that it might have been MOLLY . . . that form of ecstasy that Miley Cyrus and Madonna sing about. He may have also had Xanax on him.
And check this out: Lil Za got RE-ARRESTED before he could leave the jailhouse yesterday afternoon. He was just about to be released on bail, and he was on the phone with somebody. But he got angry for some reason and smashed the phone.
They booked him again on a vandalism charge. At this point, police are saying Justin is NOT connected to the drugs.
Jenny McCarthy Wanted to Be on "The Bachelorette" a While Back, But They Didn't Want Her
On yesterday's episode of "The View", JENNY MCCARTHY admitted that she wanted to be on "The Bachelorette" a while back . . . but she was REJECTED.
Jenny said, quote, "When I got a divorce, I was lonely. I needed to be loved. [My agent told the producers], 'She wants to be the new 'Bachelorette' . . . and they said, 'No, we're not using celebrities at this time. Sorry.' That was 10 years ago."
She's now dating DONNIE WAHLBERG.
Charlie Sheen Calls Denise Richards "A Pig in the Pen"
There have been rumors that CHARLIE SHEEN wants to kick his ex-wife DENISE RICHARDS out of a house that he owns, and which she's been living in with their daughters.
Denise lives with their daughters and her own adopted child in a home that Charlie owns in his neighborhood. He's been mad at her for a few months over custody arrangements.
There are also rumors that Charlie's latest girlfriend BRETT ROSSI wants her out because she's jealous.
So yesterday Charlie Tweeted, quote, "hey denise I own the farm. yet you are only pig in the pen to sling mud bile & [crap] every inch your evil cloven hoofs trample. #Oink"
Are Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Engaged?
AMBER HEARD was spotted with a big rock on THAT finger . . . leading to speculation that she and JOHNNY DEPP are engaged. And she fueled that speculation by seemingly trying to hide it.
Amber and Johnny met on the set of the 2011 movie "The Rum Diary". Not long after that, Johnny broke up with his longtime girlfriend VANESSA PARADIS. Amber is 27 and bisexual. Johnny is 50.

Did Kanye West Punch a Guy Who Called Kim Kardashian an "[N-Word] Lover"?
KANYE WEST is accused of punching an 18-year-old guy who hurled the N-WORD at both him and KIM KARDASHIAN.
It all started yesterday afternoon, when Kim was walking into an office building in Beverly Hills. The guy actually held the door open for her as she was being swarmed by the paparazzi.
He then tried to gain some FAVOR with Kim by calling the photographers the N-WORD.
He also called them the gay slur that starts with the letter "F".
He said, quote, "[Eff] these [Blank]-ass [N-words]." (But instead of [blank] he used that six-letter gay slur.)
Not surprisingly, Kim did NOT appreciate this. She told him that wasn't cool, and he turned on her.
He screamed, quote, "[Eff] you [witch]. Just trying to help you. Shut up [N-word] lover, stupid slut."
They both went inside the building, where the guy CONTINUED to berate Kim. Then Kanye happened to call Kim, because he was elsewhere in the building waiting for her. They had an appointment about furniture for their new house.
When the guy realized it was Kanye, he yelled, quote, "[Eff] you, [N-word]!" So Kanye came running down to confront him. The man ran into a chiropractor's office, so Kanye followed him.
Sources say the racist was verbally attacking both Kanye and Kim. So Kanye SLUGGED him. At least one source says Kanye BARELY hit him. Before much more could happen, a third party broke things up.
Police were called, but Kanye was already gone when they showed up. The "victim" does want to press assault charges. Kanye is already facing an assault charge for attacking that photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year.

Shia LaBeouf Fires Back at Jim Carrey . . . Then Apologizes
SHIA LABEOUF had announced that he was retiring from public life, but apparently, JIM CARREY'S crack at his expense during the "Golden Globes" pulled him back in.
So Shia decided to respond by tweeting, "If you explain @Jim Carrey, you've killed him. No one knows if it's for real or not. That way he's immortal." (???)
Apparently, that diss was too tame. So Shia went after Jim AS A DAD. He linked to a music video by Jim's adult daughter, Jane. Then he Tweeted, "At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s."
But then he DELETED that one, and Tweeted an apology . . . saying, quote, "Jim Carrey states that he is deeply involved in his daughter's life . . . I accept that, regret tweet on the matter. Apologies to both parents."
Then he RE-RETIRED from public life. In all caps, he Tweeted, quote, "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE."
Will Justin Bieber Be in the Fourth "Expendables"?
"The Expendables 3" doesn't even hit theaters until August, but they're already lining up kick-ass action stars for the fourth movie. First up: JUSTIN BIEBER. (???)
Before you absolutely lose your mind, we don't know if this is legit. TERRY CREWS, who plays Hale Caesar in the movies, Tweeted this . . . quote, "The next one, I am telling you, Justin Bieber is coming for 'The Expendables 4'. That is for real."
But then he added, quote, "We are going to shoot him all at the same time. It will be wonderful."
That does make it sound like a joke . . . however, Justin HAS been blown away onscreen before. Several years ago he played a bad guy on "CSI", and they turned him into Swiss cheese.
Michael Douglas Will Play an Older Ant Man
MICHAEL DOUGLAS has joined the cast of Marvel's "Ant Man" movie. He'll play Hank Pym, the ORIGINAL Ant Man. Apparently, PAUL RUDD is playing a newer version of the character.
In the comics, Hank Pym is a scientist who figures out how to change his size and becomes Ant Man. But later on, Scott Lang takes over, after he first steals the technology to save his sick daughter. Lang is the Ant Man Rudd is playing.

Pamela Anderson Has Remarried Her Ex
PAMELA ANDERSON has married RICK SALOMON for the SECOND time. Salomon is probably best known as the male "star" of the PARIS HILTON sex tape.
Pam married him in 2007, but they got an annulment a few months later. They started hooking up again last year . . . and over the summer, Pam was photographed apparently PERFORMING on Rick in the ocean in Maui.

Justin Bieber Got Caught Egging His Neighbor's House
JUSTIN BIEBER got caught on video egging his neighbor's house Thursday night, and police are investigating.
Justin went over to the neighbor's house and started throwing eggs at his front door. When the guy went out on a second floor balcony and started filming, he got into a shouting match with Bieber, who started throwing eggs at HIM.
He said, quote, "I see you. I [effing] see you!" And Justin replied, quote, "[Eff] you! I got another one for you, actually!"
Police were called, but there's no word on any charges. We don't even know if they've talked to Justin yet. He reportedly threw at least 20 eggs.
Shia LaBeouf Says He's Leaving Public Life . . . And Jim Carrey Made Fun of Him at the Golden Globes
SHIA LABEOUF announced on Friday that he was going UNDERGROUND. He said on Twitter, quote, "In light of the recent attacks on my artistic integrity, I am retiring from all public life."
He added, "My love goes out to those who have supported me." (As of yesterday he was still Tweeting, though.)
Last night at the "Golden Globes" while JIM CARREY was presenting an award, he said, quote, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise."
(FYI: There's no definitive answer to the question of who coined that phrase. The legend is that those were the last words of British actor EDMUND KEAN, who died in 1833.)
