September has been a wild month for bizarre, inappropriate outbursts and YouTube Hall of Fame moments, ranging from music to sports and even politics.

Which was the worst meltdown of them all? Let's review the contenders:

  • U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) wasn't a celebrity until his "You lie!" outburst during President Obama's health care speech. That was an all-timer.
  • Serena Williams, tennis legend, completely imploded with a profane tirade at a judge in the U.S. Open semifinals, leading to her disqualification.
  • Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the MTV Music Video Awards and belligerently said Beyonce's video was way better.

None of the above are likely to live down these infamous tirades anytime soon. But which was the most inappropriate? Vote in THG's survey below ...

Whose outburst was the most inappropriate?

Updating a story from earlier today, sources confirm that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are not just thinking about rings and maybe getting married.

They are engaged and will tie the knot in the next two weeks!

"Khloe and Lamar want to get married before he has to go away for training, and the [basketball] season starts up [this fall]," a source tells Us Weekly.

"They are hoping to pull together a wedding within the next two weeks so they can get married and have time for a honeymoon," continues the source.

"They haven't decided where they will say 'I Do,' but they are scouting out numerous locations, including Khloe's family home in Calabasas, [Calif.]."

Earlier this month, Odom gushed that he was "very happy" with Khloe Kardashian, who stars with her pregnant sister on Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami.

"Khloe is smart and beautiful and that is very hard to find," he said.

Her other sister approves as well: "He's a great guy!" Kim Kardashian said of the couple, who have been all over each other, and L.A., in recent weeks.

THG first reported Khlamar were dating September 4, just two weeks ago. But when it's time to create headlines true love, sometimes you just know.

Odom recently signed a four-year, $33 million deal with the Lakers, who he helped win the NBA title ... but can Khloe really lock Lamar up for life?!

Will Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom actually get married?

After a record-breaking run abroad, Pink has brought her "Funhouse" tour to the U.S. It's a show that's one part Britney Spears, one part Lady Gaga and one part uniquely Pink, blending passion, glitz, glamor, music and crazy stunts.

She's even playing hurt!

Minka Kelly Emmys Dress

At Seattle’s Key Arena this week, Pink announced that she separated her shoulder, but was so excited about the performance she didn’t even consider canceling, telling the audience, “The louder you cheer the less pain I feel!”

Talk about a performer.

Despite wearing the same dress as Shakira Sunday at the MTV VMAs, Pink more than made up for it with this unusual, outlandish outfit. It's very ... Pink.

Say what you will about Rush Limbaugh (and we have a feeling you will have no shortage of things to say), the conservative radio host does not mince words.

Rush devoted much of one of his shows this week to a tragic incident where a white teenager was beaten up on a school bus by an African-American teenager.

The attack was horrible and is being investigated by local police, but Rush Limbaugh seized upon it to pontificate about what he feels it is indicative of:

President Barack Obama spreading racism against white people.

According to the St. Louis-Dispatch, police say the beating was not racially motivated, and only transpired once the teenager chose the wrong seat to sit in.

After a caller phoned in and told Rush Limbaugh he did not think the beating was because of race, the blowhard responded with the following statement:

Rush Limbaugh sure knows how to blow smoke.

"I think not only it was racism, it was justifiable racism. I mean, that's the lesson we're being taught here. Kid shouldn't have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses - it was invading space and stuff. This is Obama's America."

To be fair, Rush was probably only hyperbolizing and rambling to make his point and not really calling for segregation. Maybe. But it got worse, as Limbaugh continued, inexplicably comparing homosexuality with racism:

"If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable? Sorry. I mean, this is the way my mind works. Apparently now we don't choose racism, we just are racists."

"We are born that way. We don't choose it. So shouldn't it be acceptable, excuse - this is according to the way the left thinks about things."

This is a man who also thinks John Edwards' affair with Rielle Hunter was his wife Elizabeth's fault, so you have to consider the source.

Well that's that. More importantly, is Rush on Team Taylor or Team Kanye?

It looks as though the 18-year-old loser arrested this week for breaking into Lindsay Lohan's home is somewhat similar to the train wreck starlet he ransacked.

He too has a cocaine problem and a mug shot!

Nicholas Prugo was busted for possession of the drug in L.A. in February.

This is the troubled youngster's Carlisle Cullen-esque mug shot resulting from that arrest (and one of Lindsay's mug shots alongside him, just for fun) ...

  • Nicholas Prugo Mug Shot
  • Lindsay Lohan Mug Shot: Reloaded!

These two should really date when Nick gets out of jail.

Nicholas Prugo pleaded guilty and entered an 18-month drug program, but may have violated the terms of that program, law enforcement sources say.

Interestingly, however, that violation looks like it was for something unrelated to the burglary, as he was already due back in court for it in November.

Prugo was also arrested last month in Beverly Hills for unknown reasons.

Dude was arrested yesterday on suspicion of the Lindsay Lohan looting. He is also a suspect in the break-in at the home of Audrina Patridge this year.

The only person yet to weigh in on Kanye West's Taylor Swift ambush at the MTV VMAs has finally said his piece, thanks to a BBC Radio 1 DJ who got ahold of him.

"It's an awards show," Jay-Z said, dismissing the controversy surrounding his collaborator and good friend Kanye. "He's just a super passionate person."

That's a nice way of saying "jackass."

Jay-Z, the husband of Beyonce, who Kanye was giving props to during his rant on stage, did acknowledge that, "Of course it was rude, it was her moment."

But, "that's the way he felt. It was rude, but the way they're treating him… He's on the cover of every paper. He didn't kill anybody. No one got harmed."

No. No one got harmed. Including Kanye himself. If he can blindside a cute, very talented 19-year-old, why can't the rest of the world take him to task?

Jay-Z has Kanye West's back ... to a point.

Jay-Z, who was at the center of some party-crashing drama of his own (thank you Lil Mama) continued to walk the line when defending his friend, saying:

"It just wasn't appropriate. It wasn't fair to Taylor at all."

But qualifying that with, "at the end of the day, we're gonna celebrate him for his passion more than vilify him. As he matures, he has to balance that."

Still, Jay-Z said he doesn't back West's promise to take a break: "I don't think he should lay low. I think he should move on and have a brilliant career."

Whose side are you on?

Sometimes, you simulate your bloody death at the end of your performance at the MTV Music Video Awards. These things happen when you're Lady Gaga.

As if her ridiculous outfits didn't generate enough publicity, the superstar singer is receiving feedback from her live version of "Paparazzi" on Sunday night.

A lot of the reactions aren't good, either.

Fans were a little freaked out by the rumored hermaphrodite simulating her murder at the hands of the paparazzi on stage. So were her former teachers.

Nuns apparently aren't a fan of this ...

Faculty members of the Convent of the Sacred Heart girls school in New York, where a little Italian girl named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta matriculated for several years, are mortified, according to the New York Post.

Heck, even average viewers might have thrown up at the sight of it.

The paper reports that "When someone showed the nuns a video of her bloody performance at the VMA Awards, the good sisters were not amused."

Not entirely shocking, as it was pretty over the top, even for a young woman who walks around in no pants like it's her job. Which it kind of is!

Check out a video of Lady Gaga's gruesome MTV VMA performance ...

Halle Berry is not pregnant again. Sorry about that.

The Oscar winner sat down with Jay Leno last night and denied, right off the bat, that she was expecting a second bundle of joy with Gabriel Aubry.

Leno greeted Berry at the start of the interview by saying how great she looked, both an understatement and a great segue for her rumor control.

According to Halle, the "exclusive" and "official" report from a celeb gossip magazine earlier this month was just untrue. Oh well. No harm done.

The star was just a bit full at the time. Naturally.

"Thank you for that, Jay, because that must mean all these pregnancy rumors can be put to bed," Berry said, jokingly. "I was getting a complex."

"I was like, I gotta stop with the burgers or something!" Judging by the dress she wore during the interview, she doesn't have to worry too much ...

Back in the day, Katharine McPhee finished second on American Idol (believe it or not, Chris Daughtry lost to both her and Taylor Hicks) and was known for her gorgeous looks as well as her musical talent. Term used semi-loosely.
