The biggest story coming out of last night’s Teen Choice Awards did not involve Miley Cyrus or a Jonas Brother. Instead, D-lister Kathy Griffin, never one to shy away from controversy, commanded the spotlight with her red carpet “date” – Levi Johnston.
So how did Sarah Palin’s daughter’s baby daddy end up in LA with this dreaded “celebrity starlet”?
“She’s beautiful and funny,” Johnston told Access Hollywood. “She’s the star of the night.”
And Griffin: “Miley, try to top this!” (HuffPost has a slideshow.)
Griffin isn’t just any “delicate, tiny, very talented, celebrity starlet.” No, she’s someone who joked during an Emmy acceptance speech, “Suck it, Jesus. This award is my god now.”
Palin hasn’t weighed in yet on Facebook (her new favorite mode of communication), but if Levi ended up in front of an Obama “death panel” right about now, she may change her mind about the whole thing.
