Chris Hayes, a political commentator on MSNBC, has created quite a stir - on Memorial Day of all days - for remarks he made yesterday in regard to the designation of military personnel as "heroes."

The journalist said he feels "uncomfortable" throwing that word about because it is "so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war." In other words: How can we refer to someone as heroic if we disagree with the cause for which he or she died?

It certainly seems like an odd way to make a point about war. Surely we can differentiate between policy and the troops carrying out that policy in the name of a country they love, can't we? Watch the clip and form your own opinion.

Should Chris Hayes apologize for these comments?

Justin Bieber has been accused of battery against a celebrity gossip photographer. But questions have already risen over the legitimacy of this allegation.

Justin Bieber in California

Here is what the paparazzi member claims in a police report: he tried to take Justin's picture around noon yesterday outside a mall in Calabasas called The Commons.

Bieber, who was accompanied by Selena Gomez, reacted in anger, some kind of physical confrontation took place and the photographer was taken to the hospital after complaining of upper torso pain.

Here is what actually went down according to witnesses who spoke to TMZ: The photographer was blocking Bieber's car; the singer asked him to move; and a scuffle did ensue when the "journalist" refused to do so.

But an attorney then approached the photographer and explained how he could get a lot of money if he called and ambulance and pressed charges.

No word yet from anyone in Justin's camp, while authorities are hoping to speak to Bieber and Gomez some time this week.

Lady Gaga is so terrified that Islamic terrorists might attack her and/or her mega-concert in Indonesia, she cancelled the upcoming show, her reps confirmed.

Gaga's management team announced today there were major security concerns regarding the June 3 gig in Jakarta, the nation's capital city.

Extremists were calling to ban Gaga, fearing that her risque costumes, song lyrics and embrace of homosexuality would corrupt Muslim youths.

The Indonesian Council of Ulema chairman, Cholil Ridwan, fervently urged a boycott, saying Gaga "intends to destroy the nation's morality."

Security concerns for the concert skyrocketed from such beliefs, so much so the Jakarta police refused to issue the star's tour a permit.

This in spite of the fact that 52,000 tickets had already been sold.

Given the current lack of permit, and the rising security threats, Gaga's team threw in the towel and decided to officially cancel today.

Gaga then released a statement Sunday via Twitter saying, "I'm so very sorry to the fans and just as devastated as you if not more."

"You are everything to me. I promise I will try to put together something special for you. My love for Indonesia has only grown."

The 26-year-old has courted controversy everywhere in Asia.

South Korean critics also called for a boycott; She sang in the Philippines amid death threats, and most recently performed and shopped for a fake Rolex in Bangkok.

New York Knicks player and possible Rihanna boyfriend J.R. Smith was busted in Miami Beach late Thursday. There was a bench warrant out for his arrest.

Miami Beach police said Smith was arrested on a bench warrant for not having a valid driver’s license after a routine traffic stop and search for his name.

Details were not immediately available on what led police to stop Smith about 8:30 p.m., but he joins our celebrity mug shots gallery with this one:

JR Smith Mug Shot

Hernandez said that J.R. (real name Earl Joseph Smith) was taken to the Miami-Dade County jail, where officials said he bonded out early Friday.

Smith has played seven years in the NBA and averages 12.5 points, 3.9 rebounds and at least two dozen ridiculous tattoos per game.

Yes, that's a Young Money logo on his neck. His neck.

Jenna Jameson may have built a career around money shots, but she was forced to pose for an unwanted mug shot very early this morning.

The iconic porn star got into a minor single car accident around 1:30 a.m. PST, TMZ sources confirm, and was arrested for suspicion of DUI after police officers issued a field sobriety test.

Jameson reportedly suffered a few bruises after slamming into a pole, but refused medical treatment at the scene and was released on bail six hours after the booking.

The busty blonde last got involved with the law in May 2010 when domestic violence charges were filed, and then dropped, against boyfriend Tito Ortiz. The two have since reconciled and have two kids together.

The feuds in the WWE may be fake, but the uproar Chris Jericho created during a recent tour of South America is very real.

The long-time wrestling superstar has been suspended by the company for actions he took last night in a match against C.M. Punk., after Punk brought a Brazilian flag into the ring and Jericho grabbed it, crumpled it and tossed it away.

Such desecration is a crime punishable by jail time in the country.

The flag stunt was not planned and police actually confronted Jericho about it inside the arena. He quickly took a microphone and expressed regret, but WWE officials have stepped in anyway.

"Chris Jericho has been suspended indefinitely due to an irresponsible act of denigrating the Brazilian flag at a WWE event in Sao Paulo on May 24. The WWE has apologized to the citizens and the government of Brazil for this incident," the organization said in a statement.

Kim Kardashian is many things: an attention-starved, personality-less waste of large breasts; a former sex tape star; a lying spokesperson.

But a pill popper? Someone who turns to Valium and other sleeping medicine when the pressures of work and romance become too much? This is where the reality star draws the legal line.

Sources confirm to TMZ that Kardashian has demanded her attorneys take action against any outlet that runs with the cover story in this week's NW, an Australian tabloid that reports Kim has a drug problem.

Kim Kardashian Pill Popping Cover

The story quotes an anonymous source who says Kim has regularly "self-medicated" in the face of stress, starting when she first split with Reggie Bush.

Khloe Kardashian supposedly discovered a bottle of pills recently and has threatened to tell Kris Jenner and Kanye West unless Kim takes care of the issue.

Kim, meanwhile, is spending the week at the Cannes Film Festival. On Wednesday night, she and Kanye made their red carpet debut at that annual event.

That was fast. Only a week after being released from jail, troubled Teen Mom star Amber Portwood is already back there on contempt of court charges.

The 22-year-old was booked a little after 5 p.m. Thursday.

"Amber finally had enough. The system failed her, and that is all I can say," brother Shawn Portwood said. Yes. The system failed. Good attitude.

"I really feel for my sister. She does not deserve to be there or anything that has happened to her. She is only there because of who she is."

Grade A Screw-Up

Amber Portwood has been struggling with the terms of her probation and was put behind bars a couple weeks ago for failing to appear in court.

She claims that was due to doctor's orders to rest after surgery, but that turned out to actually be not true at all, so officials came and arrested her.

She was released from jail last Thursday, but it was apparently short-lived.

Yesterday, she showed up for her weekly drug court hearing, and basically threw in the towel on the entire rehab thing. Hey, at least she was honest.

Amber told the judge she hadn't stayed clean and will always be a "bad girl," so she'd rather just face prison time than deal with this charade anymore.

She may well get her wish after these recent antics.

The reality star's probation stems from her arrest and subsequent jail time last December for drug possession. She violates probation quite a bit.

Jessica Vega, a New York woman who faked having cancer so donors would pay for her "dream wedding" and Caribbean honeymoon, was released from jail Wednesday after repaying the guests she conned and agreeing to community service.

Makes that stomach flu you used to skip work last month seem tame at least.

Vega apologized in court for the scam and was sentenced to time served. She had been behind bars less than two months since her arrest.

Jessica Vega, Wedding

After her unbelievable stunt unraveled, she pleaded guilty in April to charges of scheming to defraud and possession of a forged instrument.

When she left the Orange County Jail in upstate New York a few hours later, she apologized again, insisting that "of course" she was sorry.

Officials say Jessica Vega had paid back more than $13,000 to her guests, with nine victims getting checks ranging from $500-3,700.

Vega also was sentenced to five years of probation and must do 300 hours of community service while undergoing mental health treatment.

She was living in Montgomery, 60 miles north of NYC, when she began the scam, which picked up steam when a newspaper did a story on her.

A graphic video of Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy fame sexually assaulting male caretakers is being shopped around, according to new reports.

The video is disturbing, according to TMZ, which broke the story.

Roy, who was mauled by a tiger in 2003 but survived, has been going through rehab to strengthen his left side. But his right side is strong.

Strong enough to engage, allegedly, in the following behavior:

Roy Horn Photo
  • As a caretaker helps Roy to the bathroom, Horn shoves his hand into the man's crack in a rather aggressive manner.
  • Roy thrusting his rear end into the male caretaker's crotch.
  • In two clips, Roy grabs the genitals of two male caretakers.
  • Roy goes under the shirt of one caretaker and appears to tweak his nipples, at which point he appears to writhe in pain.
  • It appears that Roy becomes frustrated with one of the caretakers and in turn violently whips him with an oxygen tube.
  • Roy manhandles and forcibly kisses him on the mouth.

The three male caretakers in the video are all straight and have families. They have sued Roy in Nevada court for the alleged sexual assaults.

The caretakers also say they went to the cops recently to file a crime report but were told the one-year criminal statute of limitations lapsed.
