Thanks to the invention of the Internet, the news cycle moves pretty fast nowadays, especially when it comes to somewhat trivial things, like celebrity news. That major breakup that broke our hearts just a few short months ago? Those stars have long moved on -- possibly even remarried -- and now, we can barely recall a time when they were actually together. (Save for Justin and Britney -- that one will stay with us '90s and '00s kids forever.) And what about that heavily promoted, over-hyped movie that ended bombing once it finally hit theaters? We promise, we've already forgotten all about it; there's simply too much to watch

While we're not exactly sure how we feel about our short-term attention spans, we're willing to bet that at least a few stars don't mind -- and they're likely the ones with criminal records. After all, Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, who is set to serve eight months in prison for tax evasion, isn't the only famous face that's been stuck behind bars. There's a long list of names that join him, and many of them are pretty surprising -- mostly because we've forgotten all about those dark and shady celebrity pasts.

It's a struggle to remember a time when A-list actors and actresses, or chart-topping singers were getting into fights -- driving under the influence, or getting involved with serious drugs. But the truth is, those events really did happen.

We're rounding up 24 stars and the crimes that sent them to jail (or prison) to jog our memories. From the looks of it, even the most successful people mess up from time to time!
