It must have been a slow news day yesterday, because the whole world stopped for Justin Bieber’s thoughts on abortion. While driving around with a “Rolling Stone” reporter in Atlanta, sans handlers, the 16-year-old virgin told writer Vanessa Grigoriadis he believes abortion is “killing a baby” and even in the case of a pregnancy that results from rape, “everything happens for a reason.” Minds were blown. Rome fell. S**t got real.
Well, it turns out that was not Bieber‘s full quote. Keep reading »
When he’s not busy discussing abortion, rape, and socialized medicine
with Rolling Stone
, Justin Bieber
is mastering impressions. The Bieb’s impression of Barack Obama
totally blows Fred Armisen
‘s impression of the president on “Saturday Night Live
” out of the water. (Not that that
‘s hard.) Pretty good for a Canadian. [Mediaite

Justin Bieber: I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s, like, killing a baby?
Rolling Stone: How about in cases of rape?)
JB: Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.
Oof. “Everything happens for a reason”? Really? I may not care about your opinions on abortion, but the world’s population of 11-year-old girls sure does. Isn’t this heavy stuff for the “Hannah Montana” crowd?
After the jump, Justin also sounded off to Rolling Stone about the American vs. Canadian health care systems. Keep reading »
Last night, Jimmy Kimmel set out to answer a very important question: what would Justin Bieber be without his signature hair? So he had everyone’s favorite tweenage dream wear a bald cap. “I think maybe it’s gonna help me be more aerodynamic on the basketball court,” said Justin. “People will just focus on my beautiful, silky-smooth lyrics.” After the jump, check out a clip if the image just isn’t enough for you.

“It was kinda awkward … I was, like, 11 or 12. And I was on a snowhill and it was late and we were all cold and I was, like, with this girl and we were together and then I kissed her. It was really awkward.”
—Justin Bieber tells “Entertainment Tonight Canada” all about his first kiss. Here’s hoping Justin now has enough game to wait until they were inside the ski lodge, on a couch with hot chocolate in their hands, before go in for the kissing. [People] Keep reading »
I thought I was immune to the charms of boy idol, Justin Bieber
, and then I saw the trailer for his new movie “Never Say Never.” It’s like “8 Mile,” for the middle class ‘tween set. All it took was two 3-second clips of him drumming on a kitchen chair at the age of four and busking on a street corner at age eight to get me all choked up. The next thing I knew I was cruising the web to find out when and where I could catch the film. It opens February 11th, by the way. Looks like I’ve got Valentine’s Day plans after all. Arrgghh! What’s happening to me? How did I get reeled in to Bieberland? I know I’m a sucker for an underdog story, but does a 16-year-old pop superstar really qualify as an underdog? Does anyone else think “Never Say Never” looks amazing or have I just lost it? Keep reading »
“I think my baby already has a leg up on all other babies because the baby has already met Justin Bieber. I couldn’t believe it! I’m like, first my unborn child has already gone to the Golden Globes, and now has met Justin Bieber. Lucky little one!”
—Jane Krakowski dishes on the red carpet of the Golden Globes about being pregnant and engaged to designer Robert Godley. If listening to Mozart in the womb makes kids smarter, I’d like to speculate that hearing Justin Bieber‘s voice in utero should guarantee a nice head of hair. [People] Keep reading »
So apparently, tweens today really dig this Justin Bieber fellow. Every time the Bieb is even semi linked to someone of the female persuasion, she gets death threats. Selena Gomez is the latest target for all the collective JB fan hate, since she was recently caught on film kissing Justin after weeks of denying that they were a couple. (When the two were spotted at an IHOP together, she said, “It was pancakes! Who doesn’t like pancakes? We were both performing in the same place so we went and had pancakes together. That’s all it is.”) Some sample threats written to her: “Roses are red, violets are blue, @selenagomez if you break @justinbieber’s heart I’m gonna kill you.” And: “If you are the Girlfriend of Justin I will Kill you I HATE YOU :@ !!!” How poetic.
After the jump, a look back at other women who got Bieber Fever death threats. Keep reading »
