Piers Morgan is often caught in the crossfire as guests on his talk show bring controversy upon themselves, as we saw with Kirk Cameron recently.

In this case, though, it's all him stirring the pot.

Morgan spoke with the U.K.'s Mirror and didn't hold back on Kate Moss and Madonna. It's unclear exactly why, but you've gotta read these quotes:

Piers, Moss, Madonna

"Utterly horrific" is how he describes Moss, the British model. "If people actually knew what she was like, they would never, ever be interested in her."

In case utterly horrific didn't cover it. The former Daily Mirror editor claims that Moss is a low-class hack who literally kicks him at public events:

"She's just a real, spoilt little madam from Croydon. There's nothing wrong with Croydon. I was brought up near Croydon. But she's just a vile creature."

Madonna, amazingly, may have gotten even worse treatment from Piers.

"She's a complete con artist and those arms are just terrifying," he says, adding of her Madgesty's muscular physique, "It's like watching Conan the Barbarian."

"She's looking even more barbaric than ever at the moment, utterly grotesque."

Morgan says Madonna is like a "mad drunken aunt at Christmas," and "When I got the CNN job, I banned her from the show, permanently," he says.

"She responded by saying she'd never heard of me, but we know she's lying."

Remind us to call up Piers if we ever need some quotes on a slow news day.

Sean Penn channeled his inner Morgan Freeman this week.

The actor raised eyebrows by calling Tea Party members a bunch of racists, drawing a stinging rebuke from the national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots.

Penn referred to Tea Partiers as the “Get the N-Word Out of the White House Party” on Piers Morgan Tonight, saying its members want to "lynch" President Obama.

That sentiment and word choice did not sit well with many.

Said Mark Meckler, co-founder and national coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots:

“I’m fairly certain that Sean Penn has never been to a tea party or met anyone who belongs to a local tea party. I’d be happy to sit down and speak with him if he’s ever interested in really speaking with one of us and learning what we are about instead of just slandering millions of his fellow American citizens with racist hatred."

"While protected by the 1st Amendment, this rhetoric has no place in reasonable discourse in America. Then again, no one ever accused Sean Penn of ‘reasonable discourse.’”

We know where Herman Cain stands on this, but what about you?

Is the Tea Party racist?
