The newly released video of Miley Cyrus smoking a bong full of salvia has critics of that singer fired up and fans of the singer concerned for her well-being.

It also has Anthony Adams shaking his head.

A former California State Assemblyman, Adams tried passing 2007 legislation that would outlaw the herb and place it in the same classification as controlled substances such as LSD. The bill was voted down, however, and Adams settled for a restriction of selling salvia to minors.

As evidenced by Miley's loopy behavior above, Adams tells TMZ salvia can make "you do incredibly crazy things," adding: "Miley is a star and young kids are going to emulate her behavior."

That's why he's hoping to use this incident to bring back his failed bill, saying: "It's time for state and federal governments to renew their push toward an outright ban."

Think Adams has the right idea? What's your take on Miley smoking this substance? It is...

Brian David Mitchell was convicted of kidnapping Elizabeth Smart.

Seven years after he abducted Smart now 23, from her Utah bedroom and subjected her to a terrifying nine-month ordeal, a jury rendered a guilty verdict on charges of kidnapping and transporting a child across state lines for sexual purposes.

He faces a possible life sentence. That might not be long enough ...

AHHH! Scared yet? Luckily for all of us, Brian David Mitchell is off to prison.

Jury deliberations began after a month of testimony, including several days on the witness stand for Smart, who calmly recounted how Mitchell raped her daily.

Mitchell was singing "The Great Redeemer Died," as he often does, and didn't stop singing when the verdict was read aloud, showing no visible emotion either.

Elizabeth Smart, 23, took her seat next to her parents, Ed and Lois, and her sister, Mary Katherine. After the verdict was read, a look of triumph was shared.

Mitchell's accomplice, Wanda Barzee, who pleaded guilty to kidnapping last year, is serving a 15-year sentence in a federal facility already. Good riddance.

We shudder to think what a talent competition would be like in prison...

Kumari Fulbright, an Arizona beauty queen who was arrested in late 2007 and charged with the brutal kidnapping and torturing of an ex-boyfriend, has been sentence to two years in jail.

Along with three other men, Fulbright - a former Miss Arizona contestant and law school student - was apprehended three years ago for taking Joshua Conway hostage, holding him at gunpoint and slashing him with a knife.

In addition to her sentence, Fulbright was ordered to pay Conway $15,000, which really should make up for everything.

We will punish her further by directing readers to this truly amazing mug shot of Kumari. It says it all.

Darius McCrary is back in the news, for all the wrong reasons.

The former Family Matters star, who was accused by ex-wife Karrine Steffans of abuse in June 2008, has been ordered to remain at least 100 yards away from his former flame.

A judge agreed to this temporary restraining order in response to legal documents filed by Steffans this week. They cite two separate encounters with McCrary.

At Miley Cyrus' 18th birthday party last month, the singer was spotted making out with Avan Jogia.

But the slight stir that action created is nothing compared to how some might react to the following video.

Shot by a friend, it depicts the singer taking hits off a salvia-filled bong. It should be noted that possession of this herb is legal in California, but it contains psychedelic qualities - as evidenced here by Miley's reaction to a club goer that resembles Liam Hemsworth:

Says a pal at one point to Cyrus: "You need to do more. You're not as f-cked up as you should be."

We beg to differ. Without passing judgment on Miley, it's clear she's totally lost it in this video.

In the wake of last week's (fake) nude photo scandal, December hasn't been the most PR-friendly month for this star.

Angela Dorian, the 1968 Playmate of the Year, was arrested in October for attempted murder.

Now, husband Bruce is speaking out and making a reasonable statement: a divorce would have been done the job.

In an interview with TMZ, Bruce says the pair had an argument in their Hollywood apartment on October 16. He packed up his belongings and was headed for the elevator when Dorian allegedly opened fire from behind. The bullet missed his heart by a quarter of an inch.

"When she shot me, she walked away with no emotion. She didn't give a s-it," Bruce said, adding:

"I don't know what I've done to deserve this... I loved her for nearly 25 years. A divorce would have been sufficient, not a bullet."

Really, it's hard to argue with that.

The Ronni Chasen murder case is nearly closed.

Chasen, a Hollywood publicist, was gunned down on November 16, shortly after leaving a premiere party in honor of the film Burlesque.

Ronni Chasen

On December 1, ballistics tests matched the gun Harold Martin Smith used to kill himself with the one used to kill Chasin.

This evidence, combined with a neighbor who claimed Smith had bragged about murdering Chasen, led police to believe a professional hit was put on the publicist. But a subsequent investigation has authorities stating otherwise.

Barack Obama likely won't be selecting Baltimore Orioles first baseman Luke Scott in his baseball fantasy draft next season.

The power-hitting lefty gave a lengthy interview to Yahoo today in which he touched on the topics of hunting, guns... and the integrity of President Obama.

"Obama does not represent America," Scott said. "Nor does he represent anything what our forefathers stood for. This country is built on an attitude. It's a way of life. It's not because you're born here. It's not that you're supposed to take from those who have and give to those who haven't. That kills a country. It killed Russia."

Even if it were about being born here, Scott believes Obama would not be representative of the country, saying:

"[Obama] was not born here. That's my belief. I was born here. If someone accuses me of not being born here, I can go to my filing cabinet and I can pick up my real birth certificate and I can go, 'See? Look! Here it is. Here it is.' The man has dodged everything."

(Editor's Note.)

As for Scott's slugging percentage in 2011? "Anything over .600 would be nice," he said.

It's safe to assume the dream bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao won't be taking place any time soon. One of these boxers has a couple legal fights to deal with before he steps into the ring again.

Mayweather, who is already facing a couple felony counts for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face, has now been charged with criminal battery in Nevada.

It's hard to say what Floyd Mayweather has more of: Championship belts or arrest warrants?

This case stems from a November 15 incident, in which a private security guard Shayne Smith claims Mayweather went off on him after Smith placed parking citations on two of the athlete's vehicles.

It's a rare day when THG sides with Gloria Allred.

But it's also a rare day when a celebrity compares being screened at the airport with being raped.

That's exactly what Khloe Kardashian did on Lopez Tonight, however, prompting the following response from the attention-loving lawyer:

Looking Miserable

“Rape is a crime of violence. I believe that the word should not be used loosely to describe security measures at airports or at any other place. 

"I think that many victims of sexual assault who have been the true victims of men who committed that violent crime against them and who have been forced to suffer the physical and emotional harm that results from that crime would be insulted that the term would be used in the way that Ms. Kardashian used it."

Do you agree with Allred's take? Did Khloe go too far in her comparison?
