When Britney Spears shaved her head in 2007 the tabloids went berserk. The pop star was one-upped a few years later by actress Lindsay Lohan’s wild, drug and alcohol-infused behavior. And now Charlie Sheen – the highest-paid television actor before being fired earlier this week – has topped them all with a bizarre two-week spree of outrageous television interviews, nonsensical webcasts and threatening tweets.

None of Charlie Sheen’s antics would been generating the type of international attention the are currently receiving without the help of the Internet and celebrity blogs. We have to give a shout out to two our favorite purveyors of gossip, Perez Hilton and TMZ. Perez Hilton currently has a nice slide show available recounting celebrity meltdowns, topped of course by Sheen himself.
But TMZ has proven once again why it reigns in the world of celebrity coverage. The blog is providing almost hour-to-hour updates on everything Sheen. But, best of all, is that the TMZ folks seem to talk the actor’s language. So if you can’t make sense of what he is saying in his videos, they will do the translating for you.
