AdSense's ambiguity stops my creative flow (the ban menace). Questions on its grey areas.

    So im trying to create original content, nothing too fancy, some pics here and there, informative/interesting/funny stuff.. etc. But since AdSense can ban you out of nowhere, im scared everytime im using content. Music wise, it's easy, I can find anything I want without copyright, but pic/video wise... all the copyright free stuff is boring.

    For example:

    -If I use pictures from instagram/twitter off a famous person, does this constitute copyright infringuement?

    -If I use vines, does this constitute copyright infringuement?

    -When does copyrighted material fall under "fair use" and when it doesn't??

    -If I put pictures of pornstars in bikinis but under a sort of biographic/informative content, is this against the TOS?

    -If I make a gossip article full of pictures with girls in suggestive poses, is this against the TOS?

    If it is, how come perez hilton gets away with it? Just go and look around, im pretty sure he has broken the TOS several times.

    His site is full of stuff like this. Im sure that if I did this, I would get my AdSense account eventually closed forever, not being able to monetize ever again. It's way too much risk, but damn, doing 100% "safe" content is extremely boring and limiting. Im even paranoid about the actual content (as in text or voiceover) in fears of being too polemic or politically incorrect. I hate Google's hipocrisy, if you make a lot of money, you can ignore the rules it seems.

    Is there a way to get your video reviewed by Google before you make it public and monetize it, so if there is something wrong, you change it before it goes live and avoid getting banned? Or you just have to risk?
    I've spent 3 days in a video, but im not sure if the content will be ok or not with all these rules and grey areas. I don't know what to do, and all other monetizing ways suck compared to AdSense.
