Charlie Sheen had a bad reaction to some medicine, which caused him to trash a hotel room and have a hooker-related meltdown? Suuuuuure. The New York Daily News rounds up more ridiculous celebrity excuses:

  • Britney Spears: Why did she drive with a 4-month-old baby on her lap? Because that’s how she was brought up: “We’re country.”
  • Tatum O’Neal: She was really, really upset after losing her Scottish terrier … so upset that she bought crack cocaine.

  • Nicole Richie: After trying to enter a highway through the exit ramp, she admitted being under the influence of marijuana and Vicodin. Why? “I have really bad menstrual cramps.”
  • Eddie Murphy: No no no, he wasn’t picking up a transvestite prostitute to engage in any sort of illegal activity. He was just being nice and offering the hooker a ride.
  • Ashlee Simpson: Why did she need a pre-recorded vocal track for her performance on Saturday Night Live in 2004? A bad case of acid reflux.
