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!

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.

Who knows what she's up to nowadays ... besides dying her hair! The singer debuted a new blond bob last night at the Ann Taylor runway show in NYC.

Despite hosting CNN's The Situation Room every single day, Wolf Blitzer may want to try reading and paying more attention to current (and past) events.

By the end of his turn on Celebrity Jeopardy last night, Wolf racked up an -$4,800. Yup, negative. Apparently trivia questions such as which town King David and Jesus are from - Wolf said Jerusalem, not Bethlehem - were too much.

Blitzer even made a reference to "Julia Childs," plural, and had one of his few correct answers belatedly stricken from the board. Now that's rough.

"Wolf, things did not work out as well as you'd hoped, I'm sure," said Alex Trebek, diplomatically, pitying Wolf a gift $1,000 to play Final Jeopardy with.

For reference, Andy Richter absolutely ate Wolf alive with $68,000, which went to his charity of choice, the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Fortunately for Wolf, his charity automatically got a minimum of $25,000, though it would be pretty funny if it had to cough up $4,800 to cover him.

Our dream Celebrity Jeopardy matchup would pit Jessica Simpson against Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Now that would be unintentional comedy.

Earlier this week, we pitted Lauren Conrad against Whitney Port in a VMA fashion face-off after the glamorous twosome hit the annual MTV insane-o-fest.

Now the BFFs and former co-stars have come together again at the 2009 VH1 Divas special event at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City.

Neither is known for disappointing fans with her style choices, so it comes as little surprise that both gals sparkled as usual. But who looked better?

Actress Rebecca Gayheart is expecting her first child with actor husband / nude tape co-star Eric Dane, according to reports that keep on surfacing.

The couple, who married in 2004, has been in the spotlight in recent months following the Eric Dane nude tape, in which they appear to be high.

Alba and Honor

And naked.

But Gayheart and Dane now have some happier news to report, according to reports saying she's pregnant after working with fertility specialists.

Dane has spoken about working with fertility specialists on the record, as well as how they are trying to have a baby, so maybe this isn't far fetched.

The rumors that Gayheart is pregnant have not been confirmed, however.

Are Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane and his better half expecting?

A source says that Rebecca Gayheart "had some pretty bad morning sickness, but now she's more than three months along and in great spirits."

Eric Dane told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this year that "We're currently working on that. It's funny because you get the doctors involved and they call you and it's like, 'In eight days I'll have to put in some work. I will be very busy.'"

Congratulations to the happy couple of the news is true.

And to Kari Ann Peniche, for getting to see both of these hotties naked at the same time! Not a lot of people can claim that feat. You go, girl!

This is celebrity fashion at its finest.

Looking casual in a black tank top and no bra, Rihanna's nipple rings are on display thanks to flash bulbs from the celebrity gossip media following her every move.

Which makes you think it's all on purpose. Shocking.

It's as if she wants to prove beyond a doubt that those Rihanna nude pictures that surfaced earlier in the year, but were never commented on, are really her.

Check out the latest Rihanna fashion statement below, then click on the images for an even closer inspection if you can't see it (and are into that stuff) ...
