Ray J is many things to many people.

A sex tape partner to Kim Kardashian. A condom promoter to Trojan. A staff favorite at The Hollywood Gossip.

But, in the following statement issues to celebrity gossip outlet TMZ, Ray J responded to his alleged drug drama at a hotel in D.C. last weekend and insists he is not a hardcore user.

"The defamatory statements made by the staff at the Washington D.C. Hyatt accusing me of using the drug 'boat' or PCP are totally false and are an attempt by them to gain publicity for their hotel," he said. "These drugs are illegal and since the police were called, I would have been arrested if I had these drugs in my possession. The statements made by the hotel staff are extremely damaging, and I'm contemplating legal action."

The police were called to the Hyatt Regency last Friday after hotel staff asked a belligerent Ray J to leave the premises after he was allegedly found with a stash of the club drug "boat" and marijuana.

If he's wrongly accused, Ray J should definitely fight the man. But just how damaged can your reputation get from this, dude? You're best known for videotaping Kim Kardashian nude. No offense. We still love you.

During his sex tape with Kim Kardashian, Ray J was caught with his pants down.

At the Hyatt Regency in Washington D.C. Saturday, though, he was caught in an even more compromising position: our favorite amateur porn star was booted from the hotel for drug possession.

According to TMZ, in response to guest complaints about Ray J, hotel security went up to his room to investigate the scene, only to discover that he was stashing marijuana and a club drug called "Boat." We've heard the latter is similar to ecstasy.

Ray J has gone from amateur porn director to drug user. What happened?

Cops were called, but no charges were formally filed.

Moreover, sources say Ray J tried to bribe hotel security so he could stay at the Hyatt. It's unclear whether this involved an offer of cash or Kim Kardashian nude photos.

On Saturday night in Las Vegas, the most controversial choice in the Bernard Hopkins vs. Joe Calzaghe boxing match wasn't the split decision in favor of Calzaghe.

It was the public display of commitment that Whitney Houston showed to Ray J.

Sad Ray J

As you can see below, at least one fan in attendance thought to herself: What the heck is this former, respectable, chart-topping singer doing with the guy solely knowing for videotaping himself having sex with Kim Kardashian?

The only answers The Hollywood Gossip staff has come up with involve boot-knocking and drug-taking. Anyone else have any theories?

Don't cry for Ray J.

While his ex-girlfriend and sex tape costar Kim Kardashian has moved on with Reggie Bush, Brandy's little brother is doing alright for himself: he's having sex with Whitney Houston and taunting Bobby Brown about it.

Sad Ray J

In Ray J's album "All I Feel" (we'll give you a moment to digest the fact that Ray J has made an album), he sings the song "Boyfriend." In it, there are clear lyrics directed at Houston's ex-husband:

Is that your wife, is that your shorty, well I'm her boyfriend... I think the problem is you don't beat it right... Making love is cool, just pull her hair sometimes.

As you can see, Ray J makes up for a lack of a rhyme scheme with words of wisdom from which we all can learn.

Sorry, Megan Fox. I'll pull your hair next time.

Forget Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Mike Huckabee.

While these political stars each have their positive attributes, none are worthy of the sought-after title of Celebrity Gossip President.

Okay, so we just made that title up 45 minutes ago. But we felt that in an exciting presidential election year, The Hollywood Gossip should hold its own race - and YOU, our readers, should get to vote on the winner!

You can VOTE HERE now, with the ballot also appearing on the right-hand side of The Hollywood Gossip's home page until May 1.

Now, we present you with the candidates for Celebrity Gossip President and Vice President, along with the respective parties nominating them ...

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt
(Reality TV Party)
Phony, plastic, master manipulators and attention-seeking media whores who are obsessed with fame. It's like The Hills couple was destined to go into politics.

Kim Kardashian and Ray J
(Celebrity Sex Tape Party)
Upside: Not-so-secret videotaping of all U.S. citizens is sure to improve our national security; Downside: Budgetary concerns due to new White House furniture needing to be made to accommodate Kim's giant ass.

Past Lovers

Donald Trump and Vince McMahon
(Bad Hair-Megalomaniac Party)
If a Trump-McMahon team fails, it certainly won't be due to lack of funds. Or shameless, self-promoting publicity stunts. Or huge grapefruits.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens
(Super-Cute Celeb Couple Party)
Zanessa promises nude photos and perfect hair for all!

Suri Cruise and Jayden James Federline
(Celebrity Baby Party)
Upside: Very cute, little political baggage offers fresh start. Downside: Inexperience, possible brainwashing (Suri) and malnutrition (Jayden).

Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi
(Seedy Britney Spears Hanger-On Party)
Should either be apprehended as part of a sleeper cell before the November election, Alli Sims will take his place on the ticket.

Simon Cowell and Ryan Seacrest
(American Idol Party)
A Simon-Ryan ticket will be full of witty barbs, low-brow insults and palpable, homoerotic tension. At least Paula won't be part of it.

That's it! Cast your vote for your favorite candidates in our Celebrity Gossip Presidential Primary by voting on our home page or by clicking HERE!

As 2007 draws to a close, it's time to reflect and pay tribute to the stars who made this a year to remember. On that note, The Hollywood Gossip is announcing its 10 finalists for its first annual Celebrity of the Year award.

They've given us their best, their worst and, in a more than a few cases, their naked pictures. Now it is time for us to give a little something back with this special feature, because without these celebrities, we are nothing.

We previously profiled attention-starved rich people from The Hills at #6. Now, without further delay, we present Celebrity of the Year finalist #5 … A slew of celebrity sex tape stars!

While many may remember 2007 as the year the war in Iraq raged on and on, those in the entertainment news world will mark it down as an era during which we were taken from camping out on the front lawns of celebrities... to receiving an up close and personal view of what goes on in their bedrooms.

Indeed, sex tapes came from the likeliest of sources (Keeley Hazell) to the nerdiest (Dustin Diamond) and most enterprising (Ray J, below).

Ray J, Kim Kardashian, Sex Tape

With that in mind, we present the 2007 Celebrity Sex Tape Awards:

  • Most Career Enhancing: Kim Kardashian. Paris Hilton's former BFF learned from the master. Getting reamed by Ray J has led to a reality TV show and a spot atop the celebrity gossip world for this socialite.
  • Least Surprising: Amy Fisher. She shot her former lover's wife in the face. After that, nothing could really surprise us.
  • Most Explicit: Olivia Mojica. The former American Idol contestant didn't possess the singing ability to go far on the country's most popular reality show. So Mojica chose to show us her other, more hard core talents as punishment for not voting for her.
  • Sex Tape Featuring Least Famous and Least Attractive Girl: Jennifer Toof. Or Toastee Toof. This former Flavor of Love girl was so unknown at the time of her video's release that we still aren't sure what to call her.
  • Best Attempt at a Sex Tape: Vanessa Hudgens and Katie Rees (tie). Sorry, ladies, but it takes more than naked photos to be counted in this group.
  • Most Exciting, Untrue Sex Tape Rumors: Lauren Conrad and Britney Spears (tie). Maybe next year we'll experience the real thing. Speaking of which...
  • Sex Tape Star We Most Hope to Write About in 2008: Hayden Panettiere. What? She's 18 now. It's okay if we admit this.

Behind Those Hazell Eyes

Look, we'll take back every insult ever uttered against Perez Hilton if he promises not to take the following photo any further.

We all know what happens when Ray J gets someone in bed - let alone a bed covered with rose petals! - so we fear for our eyeballs if Perez Hilton Superstar ever gets released. It would make the Jessica Sierra sex tape look like Sesame Street.

Ray J has done Kim Kardashian naked on video. Might, gulp, Perez Hilton be next?

The debut album from American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis drops today.

But that isn't the only new CD receiving a great deal of buzz.

Ray J has released Ray J Unkut, an interesting mix of tracks that includes such titles as "No Porno Sh--," "Spendin' All My Bitches' Cash" and "Kim K Message (Parts 1 & 2)," a remix of private voicemails left by Kim Kardashian shortly after news of their sex tape broke.

As the brother of Brady explained to adult news organization, AVN, this has been an amazing year.

"I'm having way too much fun," he said. "It turned from crazy reactions to a crazy business. This has been a year-long story; that's the good thing about it. I'm talking about this sh-- daily. Whether it's commercial or X-rated, I'm not afraid of being successful."

Sounds like Ray J isn't exactly ashamed about leaking the Kim Kardashian sex tape to celebrity gossip outlets.

Ray J, ever the good samaritan, is just thinking about us. He wants to keep people entertained. Unlike reports of Britney Spears' pregnancy, the artist is nothing if not straightforward and honest.

"What I want to do is make sure people are entertained with great stories, and that's what I deliver on this CD," he said. "I'm puttin' it all out on the table. I talk about my boys f---in' their homegirls and Paris Hilton don't like it... I'm incorporating my life into my music, which is the only honest way to be."

What about the betrayal of Kim, Ray? Feel any remorse over showing the world how you railed her from behind and had her screaming your name in ecstasy?

"That [video] was for me to see," Ray J said.

"She loved it. We had a fun relationship; what you see is how I am in real life. All I know is we had fun, we did what we did, and it's over."

And it's not as though the video hasn't helped Kim Karadashian's career. As Jennifer Toof can attest, sex tapes equate to fame.

No wonder Ray J looks at himself like a successful entrepreneur.

"A lot of people are buying this," he said. "It is what it is. Don't hate on my hustle; this is America."

Let's get one thing straight:

Just because Ray J has seen and video taped Kim Kardashian nude does NOT mean he has urinated on this socialite's bare body. Got it?!?

Hotel Bound

The star of everyone's favorite sex tape (sorry, Jennifer Toof, maybe you can earn that honor with your next foray into amateur porn), felt the need to clear up this fact. She recently railed against celebrity gossip that claimed otherwise, stating:

"People were saying derogatory things (like) someone was getting urinated on. That hasn't happened in my entire lifetime," Kardashian said, careful not to offend anyone that does enjoy a golden shower every now and then. "I'm not knocking anyone else, but I've never personally participated in that. I think it's degrading."

Kim Kardashian says she has never been peed on. Olivia Mojica is yet to take the same stance.

Ray J has pulled himself out of Whitney Houston long enough to land a deal with America's leading condom company.

Considering the big impact he made (if you know what we mean!) in the sex tape with Kim Kardashian a few months ago, it was almost a no-brainer for the people at Trojan to sign up the hopeful singer.

The young entrepreneur insists he has no problem with the promotion. After all, come on, this is just business. Yo.

"At this moment you can either sit back and watch everything just go, or you can capitalize and come up with a way to make $20 million a year," said Ray J, channeling his profound, inner Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, the well-endowed one is also sponsoring a new drink that he says "kind of stimulates you, like liquid Ecstasy, but over-the-counter."

Well, sure. With Ray J's ambition and products in mind, The Hollywood Gossip came up with a list of other celebrity endorsements we'd like to see:

Can you think of any we missed?
