In a lot of ways, celebrities are just like everyone else - they make mistakes, execute bad judgement calls and get involved in criminal activity. Some have even killed people.

Singer Brandy Norwood rear ended a car in December, 2006, killing the driver. The star was never charged with a crime; however, the victim's parents, husband, and children, as well as two other drivers involved in the incident filed lawsuits against the star. She settled them all out of court.

During a 2012 episode of VH1's "Behind The Music," Brandy said of the incident: "They know that they can call me a murderer...

An article in the New York Post's Page Six gossip column alleged she had been less than enthusiastic about taking on the role because one of her twin daughters was sick with a fever.

Dave Grohl was left feeling deflated after allowing his favorite Foo Fighters song to be used in 1998 blockbuster Godzilla - because it turned out to be the "worst movie" he had "ever seen".

The rockers handed over a track called A320 for movie bosses to use at the end of the monster film, which starred Matthew Broderick as a scientist hunting down the famous beast.

Grohl admits the song is his favorite ever Foo Fighters track and he was stunned to see the final result in the film, but is now able to laugh off the Godzilla incident.

He tells Empire magazine, "I do actually (have a fav...

Jennifer Grey shocked TV viewers on Monday by revealing a never-before-seen X-ray from spinal surgery that saved her from permanent paralysis following her 1987 car crash.

Spotlight: The Best Teen Comedies

9/16/2010 10:00am EDT
High School can be the best time of your life or the worst horror you've ever experienced, according to Hollywood. Over the years movie after movie celebrates or criticizes (or both!) this transitional period for teenagers. Since the genre has really been done to death by now, it's rare that a film comes along that manages to do teen comedy well enough to stand out. With Easy A coming out on September 17th, there's some buzz going around it might be one of those films, but the jury is still out. For now let's look at some of the best teen comedy flicks over the years; the ones who started t...
