Everybody has to start somewhere, right? Right. For some of Hollywood's best and brightest, that somewhere is on the playing field and not the movie set. 

Yes, it's true. Many of our favorite stars had aspirations of becoming professional athletes when they were children, just like you probably did. (But not me. I always dreamed of being a rock star. We can all see how THAT turned out.)

You might know that Justin Bieber loves to play hockey, but did you know he's also pretty decent at basketball? And did you know that rapper 2 Chainz was a star high school hoops standout in Atlanta?

Kate Upton, SI model, actress, and all around hottie used to ride horses! And then there's Duchess Kate Middleton who is great at basically everything she does, including besting Prince William in sailing.

Take a look at these 13 celebrity athletes who are probably better athletes than you. And me. (Hey, we're all good at something, right? Right. Let's keep telling ourselves that.)

Robin Thicke's "Give it 2 U" music video has been released, and it features some familiar imagery from what viewers witnessed at the MTV VMAs.

No, not Miley Cyrus Twerking. But not far off.

Suddenly, Thicke and Cyrus' somewhat random duet Sunday night makes a little more sense, given some of the similarities with the video he just dropped.

"Give It 2 U," which features 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, is jam-packed with Twerking, foam fingers, dancers sticking their tongues out ... you name it.

All that's missing is Miley Cyrus herself, but she's clearly there in spirit. Watch Robin's newest music video above and cast your vote below ...

What do you think of "Give it 2 U"?

Rapper 2 Chainz was one of 11 people arrested after refusing to get off a tour bus for following a traffic stop in Oklahoma City early this morning.

Chainz and crew reportedly did not exit the bus for nine hours.

2 Chainz Mugshot

The bizarre incident took place after the 35-year-old rapper performed with Lil Wayne and T.I. in Oklahoma City last night, then left town on the bus.

Police stopped 2 Chainz's tour bus around midnight near I-40 because of an illegal taillight and noticed drug use, though they wouldn't say which.

That's when the unexpected police standoff began.

The driver was arrested, "but as he got off the bus, the door shut and locked and obviously our officers could not get in there," Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

Was 2 Chainz shot at during his recent robbery in San Francisco?

In his first incident since he was held up at gunpoint, not only does the rapper say shots were fired, but at close range - he had bullet fragments in his hair.

Chainz says tons of people believed he'd been shot and/or killed.

The wild incident in which a pair of goons robbed 2 Chainz and his crew dispersed like cockroaches from a flashlight took place last weekend.

Speaking out for the first time since, the Atlanta-based rapper took to that city's Hot 107.9 to share his side of the story - and it's quite something.

Video has surfaced of the altercation that saw 2 Chainz robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco last weekend, and it's even crazier than previously described.

The rap star, who also made news this week for being arrested at LAX for weed and sizzurp, was just strolling down the street with his entourage.

Two men then approached the group out of nowhere and pointed guns at them, at which point the crew FRANTICALLY tried to flee the scene.

During the chase, 2 Chainz trips and falls, at which point one of the robbers hovers over him, gun drawn. Police say his phone and wallet were stolen.

2 Chainz was apparently robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco yesterday - in broad daylight - and was not cooperative with responding cops after the incident.

According to TMZ, police responded to a call about shots being fired around 4:30 p.m. When they arrived, the rapper said he wanted to "handle it himself."

2 Chainz told cops his wallet was taken and that's it; no Rick Ross style assassination attempt. Surveillance video shows Chainz was clearly the target.

Whatever the motive, officials are on the hunt for the perpetrator.

Also, the video of the robbery shows that the rapper's entourage of 14 people all bailed "like cockroaches running from a flashlight" when it went down.

So much for safety in numbers.

2 Chainz is off the hook for his recent marijuana arrest ... which is not altogether shocking when you recall that the arresting officers to pics with the guy.

The ruling came down yesterday, with a Maryland judge determining there insufficient evidence to prove the weed on the rapper's tour van was his.

Somewhere, everyone on the Justin Bieber tour bus is taking notes.

Lindsay Lohan claims she stayed drug-free the ENTIRE time at Coachella.

2 Chainz is making no such assertions. Check out this photo from 4/20:

2 Chainz, Joint

That is a giant ass joint by any measure, but appropriate for the date.

And the setting. Not a lot of sober folks at Coachella we're guessing.

All the peeps at Snoop Dogg's 4/20 party clearly missed out.
