The Word: Harry Styles and the hangover of fire

“Look out, kids! He’s liable to blow!”

Guys? Harry Styles’ friends are worried about him. And with good reason. Styles was recently photographed in the natural habitat of a 20-year-old celebrity on a break from his pop group’s arena tour: puking his guts out on the side of an L.A. freeway the morning after a night out with Lily Allen. You know, that old story. Well, while he’s been getting sick his friends have been worried sick. “He has been worrying everyone for quite some time now,” a source tells Radar Online. “Those close to him have urged him to slow down. But he lives by the seam of his pants and thinks that he is invincible. Clearly, he is not.” I’m not familiar with what living by the “seam” of your pants is, exactly, but hey, language is a fluid beast. Boot and rally, Harry. Boot and rally.

Chris Brown tweets, offends

Oh, Chris Brown. You just can’t help yourself, can you? The embattled singer decided to ruminate a bit on the current Ebola crisis, but maybe he should’ve just taken another BuzzFeed personality quiz or something — “Which Rihanna song are you,” maybe? — because the results are, well, this: “I don’t know … But I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control. S— is getting crazy bruh.” Indeed, bruh. He did at least follow that up with “Let me shut my black ass up!” At which point I can only assume he pummeled himself into submission.

The be fair, though, a trip through Brown’s Twitter timeline is always a risky endeavor. In what I’m assuming is response to criticism over his Ebola comments, he tweeted, “I say what I want. If u don’t like it…. ‘SUCK MY ASS’ ( little Asian girl voice)” which, to be sure, is absolutely charming and not offensive in the least. And more recently, apropos of nothing but cringe-worthy just because it was Brown writing it, we have:

Richard Gere and Padma Lakshmi have very zen breakup

Richard Gere has apparently been told to pack his knives and go, as he and “Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi have canceled their fledgling relationship, according to Page Six. After quietly dating since April, Gere and Lakshmi “decided they would be better as friends,” a source says. Feel free to make your own “Pretty Woman” joke if you must.

Selena Gomez: Grown-up haters gonna grown-up hate

Kids can be tough enough, but Selena Gomez says she’s also had to put up with grown-up haters, too. And she’s had it, man. Up to here! “I get picked on by grown adults all the time,” Gomez tells E! News. “It’s grown-ups and I don’t get it. It just baffles me. I wish I could just sit them down and say, ‘What were you doing at 15? What were you doing at 18? What were you doing at 21?’ Because I can guarantee you it’s not half of what I’ve done.'” Maybe the “whatever, loser” tack isn’t exactly the high road she seems to think it is. But apparently it’s working? “Trust me, it’s hard. I’ve had my moments where I’ve let them get to me, but I refuse to let them win,” she says. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go think about what I was doing at 15. And it ain’t pretty.

More icky Stephen Collins news

This is probably not the kind of attention the filmmakers were hoping for: It turns out embattled former “7th Heaven” star Stephen Collins’ most recent role was in “Penance,” a short film just hitting the festival circuit, playing … a pedophile priest. Yikes. The film screened at the Catalina Film Festival near L.A. last month, just days before the release of a tape of Collins confessing to past incidents of molesting multiple young girls. But on the bright side, it’s not often a short film gets this kind of attention, so … yay?
