Mark her words: Paris Hilton is not that good of an actress. She really was terrified out of her mind when she thought a sightseeing plane she was on was taking a nosedive, even though some of her critics thought she was faking the hysteria. Hilton was the victim of a sick prank courtesy of an Egyptian reality show, Ramez in Control. Hilton was somehow persuaded to come aboard a stuntman piloted plane, which proceeded to plummet over Dubai while fellow passengers screamed, alarms went off and the engine sputtered. Hilton was filmed freaking out, as one would likely do in that scenario — albeit clutching her cellphone and sunglasses. The socialite DJ, who Tweeted that the aerial prank was the “scariest moment of my life,” is said to be so traumatized that she no longer wants to fly and may sue for emotional distress, according to Perez Hilton.
Ex Journey drummer Deen Castronovo was being held without bail in the Marion County Correctional Facility in Oregon for charges that include rape, sexual abuse, coercion and unlawful use of a weapon, according to TMZ.

They have a 10-year-old son. In February, Castronovo told Glide music magazine how great his spouse was: “You know, I am who I am and thank God my wife loves me. I’m grateful that she puts up with this. She’s the yin to my yang, definitely. That woman is so relaxed and centered and grounded. And I’m like ARRRR.”

Eek. It’s getting ugly out there in Music Land: On Monday night, Britney Spears, who partnered with Iggy Azalea on their latest single Pretty Girls, tweeted a message that seemed aimed specifically at the singer. “Can’t wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to… #YouWantAPieceOfMe” Azalea was forced to delay, then cancel, her first arena tour thanks to meager ticket sales and failing to secure an opening act. Unwilling to blame the lack of success for the single on her own tanking career, Azalea explained that the song fizzled out because of lack of promotion during a Twitter Q&A Monday. And she appeared to blame Spears by explaining that Azalea was only “featured” on the song. “I dont have to suck the womans (rear end) 24/7 to be her friend, do i?” she wrote.
