The She Wolf is on the prowl, and she's set her sights on Arizona.

In response to that state's incomprehensible new immigration law - which allows the police to ask for the identification of anyone suspected of being an illegal alien - Shakira is going on the attack.

She's headed to to Arizona today to get involved in the issue, telling Ryan Seacrest on the radio this morning:

"As a Latina, I'm very concerned how this law can impact working Hispanic families. I think that being detained in the street just because of the color of your skin is just wrong, and it's a violation of human and civil rights."

From the American Idol stage to the rights-violating streets of Arizona, Shakira is everywhere this week!

The Colombian-born singer, who is as charitable as celebrities get, will hold a press conference with Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon this week.

Like her truth-telling hips, we hope Shakira gives it to the lawmakers straight. After all, Arizona has actually made it legal for cops to make like Nazis and order: Show me your papers!

"They're really willing to enforce the law even though they know it's going crush the dreams of so many immigrants who would like to have a shot at the American dream like so many minorities have in the past in this country," Shakira said, continuing:

"We all know that America has been forged by the dreams of those people and by their passion and by their contribution to the economy by working really hard, and that's what Latinos do in this country, is work tirelessly.

"I wasn't born in this country, and I know what a great country this is. It depends greatly on creating union, not division, and I think this law will create chaos and create division instead of progress and union, and I don't think it's fair."

We'd love to see anyone argue with that.

After a bitter exchange of allegations that spanned the better part of a week, are UFC star Tito Ortiz and porn queen Jenna Jameson ready to call a truce?

Both seem to want the matter to die down and are withdrawing allegations resulting in, and from, Tito's felony domestic violence arrest earlier this week.

Jenna said Tito Ortiz assaulted her during an argument. She now says:

"What actually happened has been dramatically distorted and misinterpreted; Remarks Tito and I made after the police arrived reflect the state of shock we were both in."

In other words, he didn't do it, or she's covering for him.

What happened between Tito and Jenna? We may never know.

Tito insinuated that Jenna is an OxyContin addict who relapsed and hurt herself that day. But now the fighter's position is dramatically different as well.

He claims he found two OxyContin pills in a pair of her pants pocket and may have jumped to conclusions, as Jenna says the pills were very old. Tito's lawyer, Chip Matthews, now says the whole thing was "a big misunderstanding."

Jenna passed a drug test a day after the incident.

Why the change of heart? Tito stands to lose $15 million - his UFC contract plus other deals he's a part of - if he's prosecuted for domestic violence.

Makes sense that they want this drama to disappear ASAP. It's obviously less consequential if the case goes away, but whose story did you believe?

The United States might owe billions of dollars in debt to China, but the celebrity gossip world owes even more to Chyna.

The former professional wrestler, whose real name is Joanie Laurer, made news in the past for multiple sex tapes and steroid allegations. She's been a boon to tabloids around the country.

Now, Laurer is making headlines again... for yet another scandalous incident: Gabriela Targos, a (former?) friend of Laurer's, claims that Joanie beat her up Saturday night at the Sherman Oaks motel.

According to Targos, she simply invited Laurer over for the evening - only to watch in horror as the troubled Z-lister snapped, allegedly punching Targos in the face, dragging her by the hair and beating her with a wire hanger.

Targos escaped the room and immediately reported the incident to police. They are looking into it.

They might also wanna look into the photo above. That ain't right.

Despite our differences over years with Miley Cyrus, we're happy to give the singer credit when credit is due.

Miley took the stage yesterday as a big part of Make-A-Wish Foundation’s "World Wish Day" at The Grove in Los Angeles, joining Mark Ballas and Jordan Pruitt and putting on a performance for those in attendance.

Singing on Stage

In other Miley music news: she'll release a new album on June 22 and premiere the video for "Can't Be Tamed" on May 4. Word is, it will be quite raunchy and buzz-worthy.

Below, we've posted a slew of Cyrus photos from this event, followed by her performance of "The Climb" at the concert.

Randy Quaid and wife Evi Quaid took a plea deal yesterday, ending a strange legal odyssey that was completely unnecessary and yet highly entertaining.

A judge tossed charges against the odd actor, while his wife pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor in their Santa Barbara, Calif., hotel bill-skipping case.

Under terms of the plea deal, both escaped additional jail time – they were already thrown in jail for missing court dates on several different occasions.

Evi Quaid must perform 240 hours of community service within a year.

CRAZY QUAIDS FREED: Innkeepers, put up the No Vacancy signs!

Outside court, Randy Quaid said the case taught him "you pay your bills when you leave, and I suppose that's something we can work on in the future."

Paying bills of $10,000? Not something most of us would forget to do.

Randy feels that he was treated a bit more harshly because of his celebrity status, although deliberately thumbing your nose at the law doesn't help.

The Quaids were accused of failing to pay a more than $10,000 hotel bill at an exclusive Santa Barbara resort and they had faced three felony counts.

Evi pleaded to the lesser misdemeanor of defrauding an innkeeper, maintaining that she thought they could pay the bills later by mail. Mmmkay.

We look forward to the couple's next bizarre legal altercation.

We were shocked to see Siobhan Magnus go home last night.

But that actually wasn't the strangest development on the American Idol results show.

During their weekly Ford commercial, the remaining six finalists made like Robert Pattinson, Kellan Lutz and company, baring fangs and pretending to be vampires... while Michael Lynche fought them off with a garlic pizza.

It was a strange sight all around, though Casey James and Crystal Bowersox actually pull off the look well, don't they? Watch the commercial below now, before Fox yanks it off YouTube:

What do you think of the commercial? Very cool, or very WTF?!?

We have an update on the tragic situation surrounding Bruce Beresford-Redman and his late wife.

Bruce is the former Survivor producer suspected of murdering wife Monica in Cancun earlier this month. While authorities are preventing him from leaving Mexico as they ponder charges and collect evidence, Monica's family has finally brought her body to Los Angeles.

Sisters Jeanne and Carla Burgos flew with the corpse, which was taken to the Gates, Kingsley & Gates Smith Salsbury funeral home in Culver City.

"It's very important to have my sister back where she belongs and have the family say goodbye and have a place to go so they can send their love," Jeanne said.

The body will now undergo further testing, as funeral service arrangements are being planned. It's a sad situation all around.

Chelsea Handler sure has an interesting definition of "sex tape." And "humor."

On Wednesday night, reports surfaced regarding a decade-old Chelsea Handler sex tape featuring the talk show host getting down, dirty and X-rated.

I'd Handler

In the tape, the future Chelsea Lately hostess does a typical stand-up routine before taking off all of her clothes and engaging in explicit sexual acts.

In short, she has sex. On tape. Pretty straightforward. But her rep insists: "It isn't a sex tape. It's a tape that was done for a stand up comedy bit."

We don't know how in the heck that passes for comedy ... then again, that applies to Chelsea in general a lot of the time, so we suppose we'll buy it.

MAN HANDLER: Chelsea got down and dirty on her non-sex tape.

On her show Wednesday night, Handler herself addressed the alleged sex video, and didn't deny it exists or dispute reports of its explicit content.

Instead, she quipped, "Thanks for ruining my surprise Christmas gift to my staff."

"It was a joke. I put it on an audition tape for a comedy club because I'm a comedian. I've been showing it at birthday parties for f***ing years!"

We suppose we believe her, but that's just ... strange. Almost as weird as the Chuy Bravo sex tape. Both of which we're ready to move past.

Handler also claims that she received a a $1 million offer to market the tape, and responded: "And you know what I said? I'm not worth it."

Well, there you have it. You gotta give Chels props for being honest and self-deprecating ... even if her idea of humor is a little unusual.

Time Magazine has come out with its annual list of the world’s 100 most influential people.

It's divided into four categories (Leaders, Heroes, Thinkers and Artists), although we have no idea how Sarah Palin ended up in the number-nine slot as a "Leader." What does she lead, exactly? Whatever organization pays her the most money to speak at its event?

But anyway.

Lady GaGa is considered the most influential artist on the planet, with Conan O'Brien ranking second. Also in the top 10: Oprah, Taylor Swift and Robert Pattinson.

So Very Influential
Prince Pic

The magazine spoke to a number of people closely associated to these celebrities and received the following takes on them:

Cyndi Lauper on Lady GaGa: Lady Gaga's art captures the period we're in right now. She isn't a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture.

George Lopez on Conan O'Brien: Conan's tenacity and wit have been an inspiration to me on my own late-night show. I'm happy and proud that we'll be playing on the same team when he comes to basic cable.

Chris Weitz on Robert Pattinson: Rob is a reserved, bookish sort of specimen, a guy who'd rather spend the night at the corner table in the pub with friends — a bit of a weirdo, frankly, in the best sense.

For the complete list of influential artists, see below.

"If you're having girl problems I feel bad for you son ... I got 99 problems but a b!tch ain't one." - Jay-Z

If only Samantha Ronson could say the same. Whatever dumpster Lindsay Lohan ended up in last night, she got the obligatory, accusatory Tweets out first.

Alleging that her ex is selling her out to celebrity gossip sites, along with plenty of other gibberish, the train wreck had this to say to her DJ ex:

  • I'm pretty sure that @samantharonson just threw a fit @33years old and my friend tal @draishollywood ... illegally open NOW at this hour
  • Asked me, after being here jus 4 Timbalands birthday-to leave even though she stayed over just 2nights ago-tired of @samantharonson
  • Playing the innocent card, while chatting to tmz just like my ex-father, when all I've ever done is fall for a girl

Yep. All she's ever done is fall for a girl ... hurl drinks at a girl, accuse a girl of doing Miley's ex, fall in a cactus, and have DFCS officials visit, etc.

  • Lindsay in Shambles
  • Sa-man-tha

WHAT A MESS: We sympathize with Samantha.

This rant apparently resulted from LL getting kicked out of a club (so much for her retirement) last night at Ronson's request after she went insane in there.

Sam's response to Lindsay's online babbling was to Tweet the following:

  • "I'm not here. This isn't happening."
  • If I sing that to myself enough times will it be true?
  • One more thing- if you're gonna be an idiot an do coke- do it outside the bathroom- some of us actually use them to pee in.
  • Jack and crack will make for some crazy tweets.

Indeed. We eagerly await her retaliatory Tweets once the janitor tosses the previous night's trash into the bin outside the club and she wakes up in there.

NOTE: Follow THG on Twitter ... we won't spread lies about you.
