Justin Bieber Tried To Cleanse Away His Racist Past With An NYC Bathtub Baptism
Bieber's Bathtub Baptism

Two months ago, when Justin Bieber allegedly learned that someone was in possession of footage featuring the then-14-year-old dropping n-word-laden jokes and parody songs — two clips were released last week by TMZ — the now-20-year-old Biebs turned to God to absolve his soul and wash away his sins. Literally. According to TMZ, Bieber was apparently recently baptized in an NYC bathtub. Get the details in the video above! [TMZ]

Charlize Theron Is A Generous, FroYo-Eating Goddess

She Left A $96 Tip!

Charlize Theron was at Pinkberry this week (chocolate hazelnut with chocolate shavings, if you’re curious) when she realized she didn’t have any cash on her. She took her dessert and promised she’d be back with the money. Over an hour later, she returned to the store with with her wallet, and instead of just paying the $3.75 she owed the store, she handed the Pinkberry employee a $100 bill! Even though this TMZ video tries really hard to make Charlize look like a brat, I think this move was really sweet of her. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume it would’ve happened even if TMZ cameras weren’t around. Besides, $100 is like play money to people as rich as her, it’s not as if she lost out on all that much by giving it up. The only loss of this situation is that she only bought a “mini” sized fro-yo instead of a more respectable small or medium — come on Charlize, live a little! [TMZ via Celebuzz]

“Game of Thrones” superfans, start saving your coins! For a mere $20,000, A Song of Ice and Fire creator George R.R. Martin will name a character after you in an upcoming book from the series … with the promise that you’ll meet a “grisly death.” Sweet! You can even dictate what your character does — though the manner of death will have to come as a surprise. That $20K will go to a good cause too; Martin is crowdfunding for the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot, two Santa Fe-based organizations. If $20K is too rich for your blood, you could donate $7,500 and get one of Martin’s beloved and well-worn fisherman’s caps. And if you can only donate $20, that’s great too — plus, all donors will be entered into a drawing, with one winner receiving a tour of the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary from Martin himself. Dude, if I won that, I would be so excited I’d instantly make water in my smallclothes. [Business Insider]

How Feminists Watch Commercials

How Feminists Watch Commercials

Actually, yes, this does accurately sum up how I watch both shaving cream commercials and the E! channel. For the sake of comediennes Akilah Hughes and Suzanne Hitchman, I hope other feminists are able to laugh at this, too. [YouTube]

"But it's not even noon yet!"

Thor, a Great Dane puppy, is supposed to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to work with his human. He sounds just like we did, oh, every single morning of high school. Can you really blame him for wanting to stay in bed? It’s okay, Thor. Lots of humans act the same way in the mornings. You’ll get used to it. [Tastefully Offensive]

It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of The Guys,” the first single off her long-awaited third album, The Voyager, out July 29. [Does cabbage patch dance here.]

Directed by Lior Molcho, the clip features a photo carrousel of Jenny in various poses, sporting a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses while wearing a white suit with a rainbow airbrushed on the top half of the jacket. Visually, the lyric video is an extension of the album’s cover art, which features Lewis wearing the same ensemble, and was shot by famed photographer Autumn de Wilde. Keep reading »

Let’s Watch The President Of The United States Pump Some Iron, Mmkay?

Can’t the President of a powerful nation get a little private beefcake-ing time? Apparently not! President Obama was in Poland recently for, like, work or something, and decided to squeeze in a little fitness time at the hotel gym — and some sneaky bastard filmed him the whole time. The main thing I learned from watching a supercut of the President’s free weight routine is that shoulder presses make him pissed. Look at that mad face! I can relate. [NY Post]
