WWE Superstar Comes Out The Closet, Miley Cyrus Pops Herself, NBA 2K14 Goes Throwback
Turnt Up Thursday. It’s time to get turnt up, so why not start things off with a WWE superstar coming out of the closet? If that’s not a shocker, then seeing what Miley Cyrus is doing in a new Terry Richardson photo should. With the summer coming to an end, a new update for NBA 2K14 should make most people pretty excited for the fall. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Happy & He Knows It
It took a while before another star athelete came out of the closet considering NBA free agent Jason Collins revealed his gay preference a few months ago. It turns out WWE star Darren Young is out and doesn’t mind it. TMZ is all over it:
WWE superstar Darren Young just dropped a bombshell, telling TMZ, he’s gay … and no, this isn’t part of the act.
Darren was at LAX Wednesday when we asked whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE, and Darren laughed, saying, “Absolutely. Look at me. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy.”
For the record, Darren is now the first openly gay wrestler ever at WWE … and the first headlining wrestler ever to come out while still signed to a major promotion.
Other pro wrestlers have been rumored to be gay, but that’s it … just rumors.
Bottom line: this is big, big news. For all its chauvinism and testosterone-driven bravado, coming out in WWE is tantamount to coming out in the NFL. (TMZ)
Could this all be a gag? Is it really that shocking? There’s a lot of entertainers starting to come out, is this going to be a trend that intensifies as we get closer to 2014? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Poppin’ Miley
Miley Cyrus has not done anything to avoid looking like a sexy diva and in a new photo, she turns things up a very big notch. It can be speculated what the photo is really about, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to put two and two together. RumorFix has the shot:
Clearly the words “classy” and “elegant” no longer exist in Miley Cyrus’ vocabulary.
We didn’t think Cyrus could get any more disturbing after a photo surfaced of the raunchy star playing tonsil hockey with a gigantic baby, but oh boy were we wrong!
On Wednesday, photographer Terry Richardson debuted some photographs he took of the former Disney star sporting an “O-Face” while appearing to be masturbating over a pair of tight jeans.
Why? We will never know. And we don’t want to know. (RumorFix)
Has Miley Cyrus changed the meaning of feeling yourself? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Back To The Drawing Board
Are you ready for some NBA 2K14? It looks like the 2K team is ready to battle it out with NBA Live 14’s re-launch and has even added a throwback element to its franchise game. Free OnSmash has the scoop:
Who else misses the old days of seeing 7’ 7 point guards with 99 ratings that made it rain online like Stephen Curry on NBA 2K? 2K Sports has announced the long-awaited return of “Crew Mode” for its upcoming title NBA 2K14. Crew Mode has been absent from the series after NBA 2K11, but the single most requested game mode will be making its comeback in a few more weeks from now. The NBA 2K14 Community Team Up members (without Chris Smoove unfortunately) discuss the new and “improved” 5v5 online battle that will feature leader-boards and stats using your MyPLAYER. Look for the NBA 2K14 in stores this October 1st, then on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in early November. (Free OnSmash)
Is this going to make you want NBA 2K14 any more? The game should sell units from just having LeBron James on the cover but adding the Crew Mode back? Awesomeness? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
