Miley Can't Find Her Car
Trying to play it cool with an eye-catching ultra rocker look, Miley totally loses it. One find afternoon, the Hannah Montana star waltzed into a Beverly Hills Coffee Bean. What? It's only natural to go out for some iced coffee, in a barely there shirt. The cobweb like material barely covered much of the young star. Miley was clearly frazzled by all the (unwanted... ahem, yea right!) attention. Feeling a little self conscious, struts out of the coffeeshop and confidently opens her car. Only it's not hers! Despite paparrazzi filling her in ("It's not yours, Miley", "That's not your car", "Your opening someone else's car"), Miley was too cool to listen. She continues to pull open the door, trying to play it cool. After a few painful minutes, it dawns on her.

Coffee Thrown on Britney's Car
Yea, that's right. Britney hit the tabloid, yet again, for another coffee run blunder. Only this time isn't wasn't her fault, or was it? Britney was snapped waiting for some yummy lattes at a local coffee shop. She sits patiently while paparazzi crowd intensely around her car. Suddently coffee comes flying! It splatters all over Britney's car and all over the paparazzi. The woman who threw the coffee (surprise, surprise) isn't Britney. It's some other lady who's angry about something. Was she trying to distract the hounding paparazzi from Britney? Or was she trying to get Britney's car? Whatever the reason, the move clearly enraged the photo-hounds. They started leaving Britney's car and hurling abuse at the woman. What kind of coffee do you think she sacrificed for this stunt? Some discount espresso coffee? Or was it some elaborate venti macchiato with caramel, whipped cream, fixings and all?
