Miley Cyrus Could Be in Trouble for Letting a Dancer Spank Her With a Mexican Flag 

MILEY CYRUS might be in a little trouble for her antics during a show in Monterrey, Mexico earlier this week.

And now, state officials want the Mexican government to charge Miley for desecrating the flag, and punish her with a $1,270 fine and 36 hours in JAIL.

Did Joan Rivers’ Doctor Take a Selfie While She Was Under Anesthesia? 

We’ve already heard that JOAN RIVERS’ doctor may have performed an unauthorized biopsy . . . one that ultimately killed her.  But here’s something we DIDN’T know.

According to CNN, before he did the operation, he TOOK A SELFIE with her while she was under the gas.

Dr. Lawrence Cohen performed the endoscopy.  But when he was done, an ear, nose and throat doctor Joan had brought with her decided that he wanted to do a biopsy.

Not only was Joan’s doctor not licensed to perform a biopsy at the clinic, but Joan never signed a consent form to have one in the first place.

The fallout continues.

 

Rihanna Wasn’t Happy That CBS Dropped Her Song from “Thursday Night Football”

RIHANNA is NOT happy with CBS for dropping her song from “Thursday Night Football” . . . apparently because she’s a high-profile victim of domestic abuse, and the NFL is in the middle of the RAY RICE scandal.

Rihanna didn’t say anything at the time, but when she heard that the producers wanted to bring it back tomorrow night, she FLIPPED OUT.

She Tweeted, quote, “CBS, you pulled my song last week.  Now you want to slide it back in this Thursday?  No.  Y’all are sad for penalizing me for this . . . the audacity.”

CBS claims that they’ve decided to go in a “different direction,” but Rihanna’s label, Roc Nation, issued a statement saying that they’re the ones who broke it off.

 

Quick note:  Despite the controversy surrounding the NFL right now, we are obsessed with it on TV.  “Sunday Night Football” was the most-watched show of the week.  The Bears-49ers game attracted 22.2 million viewers.  It was closely followed in the ratings by the Ravens-Steelers “Thursday Night Football” game, which had 20.8 million.

The grounds include a lagoon-style swimming pool with a grotto connected by an underwater swimming tunnel, which sounds pretty sweet.

It’s unclear how much Paris paid, but the business that sells these dogs says it’s worth $13,000.

Thanks to Kanye West, Two People in Wheelchairs at His Concert Were Booed 

Thanks to KANYE WEST, two people in wheelchairs got BOOED during his show Friday night in Sydney, Australia.  It was actually a misunderstanding, but it was the kind only Kanye could cause.

You see, Kanye decided that he wasn’t going to continue the show until everyone in the arena STOOD UP.  And when he saw two people still not standing, he refused to go on.

Of course, those two people were in wheelchairs and COULDN’T stand up.  But Kanye had to make SURE they were disabled and not just refusing his demand.

The whole process took several very awkward minutes, during which the crowd started booing and chanting “Stand up!”  When Kanye was convinced the people really were handicapped, he went on with the show.
