That was fast!

One day into production on the UK's Celebrity Big Brother, Tila Tequila got the boot for her pro-Nazi views, which she had shared on her social media accounts previously. "The views Tila had expressed, and permitted to remain uncorrected, are totally unacceptable and, accordingly, her continued involvement in the [program] was untenable," Channel 5 said in a statement. On the show Tequila, born Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, started talking about Adolf Hitler (because that's the sort of thing that comes up frequently in casual conversations with strangers), and producers found out it wasn't her first time chatting up the Fuhrer.

Somehow, at no point during casting did they uncover that incident in 2013 where she posted a Photoshopped image of herself wearing Nazi paraphernalia and posing in front of Auschwitz.

Ms. Tequila removed the Hitler photo shortly after the incident, though, naturally, a few people got screenshots first:

That completely tasteless photo isn't the worst of it either. In other social media posts, Tequila praised Hitler as a "brilliant artist" who was "ahead of his time," and confessed to having "the same hopes and dreams as Hitler." She even referred to herself as "Hitler reborn."

A Jewish group slammed Channel 5 and the producers of Celebrity Big Brother for featuring such a contestant on their show. Once the show began to investigate her views, her removal was a foregone conclusion. Read the full statement from Channel 5, which BBC Newsbeat provided below:

The show confirmed her removal with this subduded tweet announcing the news:

Tila Tequila has yet to respond publicly about getting removed from the house.

Miley Cyrus Comes Out as Pansexual and Drops Hints About the VMAs

Miley Cyrus is a great interview subject.

Most stars are evasive in interviews, choosing to only speak about the specific project they're promoting. Not Miley. The "Wrecking Ball" singer has opened up about her boobs, her relationships, and her lack of sh--s she gives about what people think of her.

In a new interview with Elle UK, Cyrus touched upon a topic that seems to come up a lot for her: Her sexuality.

"I'm very open about it - I'm pansexual. But I'm not in a relationship," she clarified.

The issue doesn't hit the newsstands for another month, but indicated she's also going to discuss her style, her LGBT activism, and how she uses her talent and wild fashion sense to draw attention to issues that matter to her.

On Friday, Cyrus also did an "Answer Time" session on Tumblr, where users get to submit questions and she answers them. Here's what we can expect at the VMAs, which she's hosting this Sunday:

VIP (Very Important Puppy?) cameo One person asked if we could expect any puppies on stage -- a nod to Cyrus telling Jimmy Kimmel she wants the VMAs to look like her Instagram, which frequently features members of her squad of animals.

"A Miley member makes a cameo!" she responded.

Or at least the Doggfather? Miley also dropped these three hints about surprises planned for Sunday: "#SNOOP #MAMMIE #BROWNIES."

Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean" Is The Perfectly Chill End-of-Summer Song

Who is this person and what has he done with Justin Bieber?

The man formerly known as Biebs dropped his new song, "What Do You Mean," on Friday. It's laid-back, hypnotic, and fun -- the musical equivalent of drinking beers on your friend's deck and watching the sun set. Coming off the mega-hit "Where Are U Now," it's kind of hard to believe this is the same person who was assaulting our eardrums with "Baby" just a few years ago.

Oh, and the new song is also super catchy. At least "Watch Me" won't be stuck in your head any more?

Here's the lyric video, which was released on Bieber's VEVO channel.
