Courtney Love has issues.

Her daughter, with the late Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean, just turned 18, and let's just say Court didn't mark the occasion with a nice Hallmark card.

Frances Bean Cobain was publicly blistered by her rock star mom on Twitter in a string of vintage Courtney Love impassioned, nonsensical attacks.

She was scolded that "youve done a damned good job frances of destroying anything i could build" and warned that Love can and will "ruiinher."

"Why would you leave me and my life in tatters like this" reads another Love Tweet. "was that therapist right? Why do you want to ruin my life?"

But in typical Courtney fashion, she turns on a dime to regrets and seemingly bona dide compliments, Tweeting that she "aches" for her daughter.

"I long for your kiss, your sweet head smell," she notes sweetly, with odd word choices. "I long for youm I ache for youm I die for you every day."

"im done, you arent dumb you know what youve done what youve sold i couldnt shelter you from them i suppose its my fault, im so sorry bean. x"

The two have engaged in a vicious, often public battle since late last year, when her own unstable conduct cost her legal guardianship of Frances.

Courtney's latest album, Nobody's Daughter, written while the star was in rehab, was released in April, just weeks after Frances released a record.

Maybe mom and daughter can mend fences and collaborate on a record together next? Some of these Tweets would make for tremendous lyrics.

After weeks of rumors over whether or not the incomparable Britney Spears would actually appear personally on the Glee episode in her honor this fall, the pop icon confirmed it this week via a Twitter pic of herself and her assistant on the set.

Now, two additional Britney Spears pictures have emerged featuring the singer and a cast member of the Fox series! Check them out below - Britney's posing here with Heather Morris, who plays Brittany, fittingly, and creator Ryan Murphy:

Britney Spears will appear on the September 28 episode of Glee.

Along with the photo, in which she reenacts her famous pose with Madonna, the pop icon wrote: "All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down."

Britney has called the experience a ton of fun and we can't wait to see the tribute to her music. We've already seen Lea Michele in "Baby One More Time" garb.

We think we speak for millions when we say her Glee appearance and the second season premiere of the show - September 21 - can't arrive quickly enough!

What Britney song would you like to hear on Glee?

Never drink and drive. That message has been drilled into our heads for decades. Now there is a newer threat: Texting/Tweeting/Facebooking and driving.

New reports indicate that Dr. Frank Ryan, plastic surgeon to Heidi Montag and other celebrities, was Tweeting just before his fatal car accident on Monday.

Ex-girlfriend Charmaine Blake said the surgeon “lived up in Malibu on a tiny street and he was texting while driving and he accidentally went over the cliff.”

People also confirmed with the California Highway Patrol that Ryan was Tweeting, although the official cause of the accident has still not been determined.

Dr. Frank Ryan was purportedly Tweeting about his border collie, Jill, when he lost control of his car. His final tweet was a photo of Jill atop a sand dune.

The dog survived injuries incurred in the crash.

Dr. Frank Ryan passed away after a car crash yesterday.

While often associated with teenagers, Ryan's reported texting and driving proves how this has become a serious and underrated problem for adult drivers as well.

Public service announcements and advocacy campaigns dedicated to highlighting the dangers of texting, etc., while driving have become more prevalent of late.

In addition to advocacy by governments, consumer groups and wireless companies, some states have even passed laws barring it, even if they allow phone calls.

Hopefully those measures, coupled with incidents like this latest tragedy, can serve as a reminder for others to put down the phone. You can Tweet and text later.

Teri Hatcher has taken to Twitter to make a point about aging, natural beauty and plastic surgery.

The Desperate Housewives star posed in nothing but a towel this week and snapped a few close-ups of her face.

Tweeted the actress: Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what "they" say. Decided I'd shoot myself in to reveal some truths about "beauty" and hope it makes you all easier on yourself.

Yes I am alone in my bathroom naked in a towel on behalf of women everywhere trying to make a point. Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

Are you taking notes, Kardashian sisters? This is a much healthier message to send than constant talk about weight loss and bikini bodies...

** UPDATE: After posting these photos, Hatcher went on Entertainment Tonight and pretty much backtracked off her message. She said:

"It's not about Botox to me... I don't have any judgement about doing Botox... I've done Botox, I may do it again - I don't know. It's not the point.

"There has to be a different sort of baseline of how we're accepting beauty. I wanted women in America, not in Hollywood, to know that so much of the manipulation of going from the real Teri Hatcher to the Teri Hatcher that's on an advertising poster or an endorsement - that a lot of that happens through lighting."

So... the point is that celebrities undergo a lot of styling and make-up, combined with professional lighting, before going on TV or on commercials? Wow. Stop the presses!

The Hills vixen Kristin Cavallari is on a health kick:

She's trying to wash the stink of that show off her!

Kristin Filming

Just kidding. Partially. It would be too difficult to.

In all seriousness, according to Cavallari, she has embarked on a 10-day detox plan that consists of ingesting only variety of vegetables, protein shakes, fish, chicken and brown rice, all of which are delivered to her home daily.

"Such a beautiful morning. Started a 10-day detox today...protein shake for breakfast and it wasn't bad!" the 23-year-old reality star Tweeted last week.

Kristin Cavallari looks good to us. Hope she's not going to get too thin on us ... that's just no good. Celebs need to set the example that you can eat AND be hot.

But shortly into the detox (which began with three days of consuming just protein shakes), Cavallari admitted the cleanse wasn't as easy as expected.

"So its day 5 of my cleanse and its been pretty easy until today," she Tweeted longingly this past Sunday. "I can't stop thinking of all the food I want!"

Still, The Hills' resident bad girl insists that she isn't doing the cleanse solely to drop a few extra pounds. Because no one diets for that reason ... ever.

"Just wanna make 1 thing clear-the cleanse is not for weight loss. Its for health... and I feel great!" she Tweeted earlier this week. We're glad to hear it.

Earlier today, Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker announced his verdict regarding Prop 8, the controversial ballot proposition that was passed in November 2008 and banned gay marriage in California.

Judge Walked deemed the amendment a violation of the Constitution's equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment and overturned it. THG's reaction to this news?

Hooray! There's no practical argument against the harmless institution of gay marriage, and every reason to treat homosexuals the same as heterosexuals. As for the reaction in Hollywood, an outspoken community when it came to this issues? Here are a handful of responses:

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: "This decision affirms the full legal protections and safeguards I believe everyone deserves."

Ellen DeGeneres: "Equality won!"

Portia de Rossi: "I am ecstatic that proposition 8 has been overturned in the state of California. This is an incredibly exciting and historical day and a big step towards equal rights for all."

Lance Bass: "Congrats on the overturning of Prop 8!!!!"

Celebs

Pink: "It’s a good day!"

Adam Lambert: It's time to "throw glitter on this barn!

Ricky Martin: "YEAHHHHH!!!!! PROP8UNCONSTITUTIONAL MOVING FORWARD!!!!!!!!"

Kelly Osbourne: "so happy over the news on prop8 its about time!"

Kim Kardashian: "Prop 8 was struck down! This news is amazing!!!! Its about time! Congrats to everyone!"

Shanna Moakler: "Tonight we celebrate! EQUALITY and LOVE for all! This is so much bigger then [sic] marriage, it's about wisdom, compassion and knowing we CAN be heard, action DOES make a difference!"

Samantha Ronson: "Song Of The Day: Let's Get Married- Jagged Edge."

Olivia Munn: "Prop 8 Overturned!!! Equal rights for everyone! Nice to be out of the 1950s..."

Seth Myers: "Prop 8 was always my least favorite Prop. Favorite Prop: Joe."

Stephanie Pratt and Josh Hansen have broken up, and somewhat contentiously. In other news, Stephanie Pratt was dating a dude named Josh Hansen.

Just kidding, we did know that. Because we watched The Hills' final season despite recommendations of our psychiatrists, we knew they were dating.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

Amazingly, even after the revelation that by and large, The Hills is fake, that part was apparently real. Stephanie and Josh did begin seeing each other.

It's all over now, though. The sister of Spencer Pratt and the motocross racer "went their separate ways," her rep confirms. Yes, Steph has a rep.

Whatever triggered the breakup, Josh was not pleased.

Josh Hansen and Stephanie Pratt in happier times.

"Another dysfunctional move by Stephanie pratt," Hansen Tweeted. "I was under the impression u had to be someones bf in order to get dumped."

Ohhh, snap. In response to that Tweet, the always intelligent Stephanie reported: "No josh Hansen u were dumped so stop acting like a child."

"Keep star [expletive] ur (sic) way into Hollywood. Now pls GO AWAY!!!!!!"

A rep for Hansen says he and The Hills hanger-on were never an official item and that the racer is "moving on." Looks like he's making good on that, since the dude's been Tweeting at Girls Next Door star Holly Madison fairly regularly.

NOTE: Follow THG on Twitter. We'll can't promise we'll never break up with you in person, but we'll use proper punctuation and spelling at least.

Jessica Simpson is getting a little desperate for attention these days if you ask us isn't afraid to show the world her love for new beau Eric Johnson.

The one-time singer and actress posted a shot of her smooching her latest squeeze (a Yale graduate AND former NFL player) on her Twitter page.

Large Jessica Simpson

"Romance 101... getting kissed by my Yalie... me not lookin' so smart... :)" she wrote. "but YUM!" Pretty much sums it all up right there ...

Jessica Simpson is in love - and wants the world to know!

It's good to see her happy, but should we be concerned?

Fueling rumors that Eric Johnson is just using her, rumors surfaced this weekend that he pulled out of the two-year business program at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton school to remain in L.A. with the star.

Even though they've only been together eight weeks, a source says: "He doesn’t want to move to Philadelphia and leave her so soon after they got together."

Plus, living with/sponging off Jessica Simpson has to beat an MBA in market value, are we right? It doesn't take a Yale degree to figure that out ...

Kanye West finally joined Twitter yesterday.

Upon hearing this, we had two thoughts:

  1. How was Kanye not on Twitter already?
  2. It's only a matter of time until Taylor Swift's account gets hijacked and Kanye's is proclaimed the greatest Twitter account of all time! OF ALL TIME!

Just kidding. Kanye's entry into the Twitter-verse began with this simple, boring declaration: "Up early in the morning taking meetings in Silicone Valley."

But then: "Lol I spelled Silicon wrong ( I guess I was still thinking about the other type of silicone ITS A PROCESS!! : )," Yup, he's definitely arrived.

New Twitterer

We expect at least 120 Tweets a day, Kanye.

The big surprise to those of us who follow West is that his Tweets are not in CAPS LOCK, the rapper's preferred method of communication on his blog.

Instead, he seems to prefer no capitalization or punctuation at all. Makes it a bit tough to read, but we'll take it over all caps. Much less threatening.

Kanye West may have joined Twitter later than many stars, but he can take comfort in the fact that his arrival was highly celebrated and anticipated:

He's already cracked 200,000 followers, and "predictedkanyetweets" - in which fans predicted future Kanye-isms - was a Trending Topic yesterday.

No Tweets so far about him shagging Shay, sadly.

Lady Gaga pictures stirring up controversy? It's a weekly occurrence. 

This instance is a bit surprising, however, because all she did was play a the piano. It just happened to be John Lennon's famous white Steinway piano.

The late icon's son, Sean Lennon, posted the Gaga photo on Twitter with the caption: "With gaga at mom's house, she's belting on the white piano..."

Some fans were irate that she dared play the instrument, a gift from John to Sean's mother, Yoko Ono, and it sits out in the open at Yoko's home.

The image of her at the iconic instrument sparked replies such as "WHY WOULD YOU LET LADY GAGA PLAY ON JOHN'S PIANO? I'm disappointed. >:("

Lady Gaga channels John Lennon on the icon's own piano.

Sean Lennon replied, "pianos meant are to be played. Why is everyone so uptight? What should we do, lock it away in a dusty room? So judgmental."

He took the picture down, but added, "Firstly, he gave that piano to my mother for her birthday, it is hers, secondly, he was not uptight the way you seem to be ... Come on, lighten up...life's too short, there're enough real problems in the world...."

Her fame buoyed by outrageous outfits, bombastic videos and even the occasional hermaphrodite rumors, it's easy to overlook that Lady Gaga can play.

She was classically trained in the piano from age four on, with prodigal results. Gaga began writing songs at age 13 and majored in the subject at NYU.

In fact, here's Gaga performing John Lennon's "Imagine" at the Human Rights Campaign's National Dinner in 2009. Think she's worthy of the Steinway?
