Wiz Khalifa: Arrested For Marijuana Possession

Rapper Wiz Khalifa tried and failed to hide a bag of weed in his room at a Holiday Inn in Nashville, Tenn., according to police officials who arrested him.

According to a police report, Metro Nashville Police responded to Wiz's room on April 21 after someone complained about "a strong odor of marijuana."

When the officers arrived to the scene, Wiz (real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz) allegedly tossed a "marijuana cigarette" out of the window. Clever move!

Cops say they recovered the item tossed by the rapper, and that "inside the rolling paper was a green leafy substance consistent with marijuana."

According to the report, Wiz (seen above with fiancee Amber Rose) admitted the joint was his and said he had 3.7 grams of weed in his pocket.

Khalifa is typically very open about his marijuana use - not sure how he didn't make our 4/20 celebrity stoner tribute - and was hit with a citation.

No word if the rapper smoked more after the police left, but if he did, he probably made sure to turn the fan on at least. Small victories, cops.

Vanessa Williams reveals sex abuse in new memoir

Vanessa Williams has it all: A thriving career, a beautiful family and gorgeous looks. But it hasn't always been so rosy. The actress reveals in her new memoir You Have No Idea that she was the victim of sexual abuse at the age of 10 and her abuser was the last person you'd expect.

Williams explained, "Family friends who had a daughter invited me to visit their friends in California with them. The family we stayed with had two kids.

One of those kids was a teenage girl. "Susan, who was 18, smoked, drove a car and was the epitome of cool. [My friend] Nancy and I slept in the den. One night Susan crept in."

"She told me to lie down on the rug. I was confused. Are we going to play a game? As I tried to make sense of it, Susan pulled down the bloomers of my cotton baby-doll pajamas. 'What are you doing?' I asked. 'Don’t worry -- it’ll feel good.'"

"I lay there paralyzed. What was going on? I didn’t speak. She kept at [the molestation] for I don’t know how long. She slid my bloomers back up and whispered: 'Don’t tell anyone.

Williams was so shocked by what happened that she didn't tell an adult what happened.

"For years I kept Susan’s visit to myself. I didn’t really understand until college. I was with my boyfriend and it hit me and I blurted out: 'Oh my god -- I was molested.'"

But the actress is a survivor, and as she explained in the new issue of People magazine the incident "didn’t paralyze me, and I don’t dwell."

She did make sure to use her experience as a learning experience for her kids. "I was verbal about it so they knew what to look for," she said.

Katy Perry Rocks Slime Sports Bra at Kids' Choice Awards

Now that's one way to make a memorable fashion statement and avoid becoming one of the celebrities who got slimed ... what would the point be?

At least night's Kids' Choice Awards, Katy Perry showed off a few inches of her midriff in a neon green ensemble with matching peep toe heels ...

... and a sports bra-like top dripping in slime:

The award show, of course, is known for its orange carpet and time-honored tradition of dumping industrial-size quantities of green slime on some "lucky" winners.

Perry was among the Kids' Choice Award winners for her role in The Smurfs, but the only slime Katy wore was on her chest from the get-go, though.

Paired with her purple and blue ponytail and bubblegum lips, the pop superstar actually managed to make this absurd ensemble look cute. Not a small feat.
