Celebrity gossip is not the place to look for nuance or thoughtfulness. A lot of it is downright sexist. Take, for example, today’s headline on New York Post gossip page’s Page Six column, “Selena Gomez ‘To Blame For Justin Bieber’s Behavior’.”
You’re probably aware that pop stars Gomez and Bieber were, for a time, a couple. They broke up. You’re also probably aware that Bieber has been losing it a little bit lately: arguing with his neighbors, showing up late/canceling concerts, trying to fight paparazzi, running around in gas masks, abandoning his pet monkey.
Apparently, all of that is his ex-girlfriend’s fault! Keep reading »
Maybe you’ve heard that as Justin Bieber continues his weird worldwide meltdown, he left some monkey collateral damage in his wake? Bieber’s monkey was seized by German customs officials on Thursday after the singer failed to produce necessary customs documents. Mally, the wee capuchin monkey, is just 14 weeks old — too young, say experts, to be separated from her mother. But now she’s been seized by officials and is currently being kept in quarantine. Biebs has four weeks to come back and pick her up.
But what should Mally do if Bieber fails to show (which, given his track record with animals, is kind of likely)? Never fear, sweet monkey, we’ve got some options for you! Keep reading »
During Selena Gomez’s appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” last night, the topic of Selena’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber inevitably came up. Letterman’s Bieber hate is well-documented, and he mentioned the brutal interview last year during which he’d made Bieber cry. As the audience laughed, Gomez paused for a second and then said, “Well then, that makes two of us.” A triumphant fist bump ensued, and a “We Made The Biebs Cry” club was officially formed. Hopefully Selena has put extra security in place today, because the Beliebers are not going to like this. [YouTube via Opposing Views]
I’m baaaaaack! Did you miss me? In this week’s episode of What We Missed, I break out my Google Translation app in order to discuss the perks of having a major language barrier when romancing someone. For example, you’re forced to really listen to each other. Also, we reflect on the death of Justin Bieber’s hamster, mostly to mourn the downfall of society that such a thing is even a Twitter trending topic and to rail against people (celebs and commoners alike) who adopt/buy animals when they’re not fully prepared to care for them. (Also, I reveal my own crazy super fan past!) And lastly, we chat about recent stats about when women finally go makeup-free in front of new boyfriends. Personally, I go barefaced pretty early, but totally sneak out of bed in the morning to brush my teeth before he wakes up. I put off exposing him to my morning breath for as long as possible! Watch the episode above and share your thoughts on all these stories in the comments!
I’m pretty sure it’s official: Justin Bieber is losing it. After passing out during a concert last night, then tweeting a shirtless photo of himself in the hospital shortly thereafter, Justin had what sounds to me like a bit of a meltdown in London this morning. And it all got caught on video. Justin hopped out of his SUV and lunged at a paparazzo, screaming “I’ll fucking beat the fuck out of you!” as his handlers attempt to restrain him. At first this news kind of delighted me, because I love a good celebrity mental decline, and all the signs are there — the fainting, the gas mask, the suspicious lateness, The Black Keys altercation, the butt-baring Instagram photos, the rumored sizzurp — but then I watched the video and felt pretty awful. The photog is really, really fucking nasty, and Biebs and his crew look exhausted. It’s easy to forget that the kid is 19 and super-sensitive and impressionable, and it seems like he might be Lohan-ing a little bit. Sad. I would not want to be Justin Bieber, that’s for sure.

Over the weekend and this past Wednesday night, The Notorious J.J. Biebs was seen attempting to evade ferocious fans and paparazzi by donning a gas mask. If there’s one thing that makes it obvious you’re trying to evade your fans and paparazzi it’s wearing a gas mask, right? In any case, this photo, taken as Bieber Fever Patient Zero was leaving Mr. Chows in London, is just begging for your creative caption. So tell us, what’s happening to good ol’ Justin B. here?
