Pop Rocks: Courtney Stodden Turns 18, Perverts Exhale Noisily

Good heavens, night is falling and the text entry window for my due-at-8 a.m. pop culture blog entry remains alarmingly free of text. To TMZ!

Here's a shocker...Courtney Stodden says she definitely has NOT ruled out any of the porn offers that have rolled in since she turned 18 this morning.

Stodden just called in to "TMZ Live"...and told us she's been "flooded" with XXX offers from the moment she became "legal"...and the thought of her getting intimate with another man is freaking out her 52-year-old hubby.

Let that one roll around for a moment: She's worried about "freaking out" her 52-year-old husband, to whom she's been married since she was 16.

Seeing as how I'm forced to comb through the entertainment headlines regularly, it was hard to avoid the pair (believe me, I tried). The, uh, precocious young lady certainly seemed to enjoy the attention that came from being scantily clad jailbait. It's just funny -- in a depressing, inevitable downfall of mankind kind of way -- to see the commotion made about the one young celebrity turning 18 who might actually start making "adult" entertainment.
