The Biebs Is Hurt!

Bieber down, Bieber down, you guys! Justin Bieber reportedly injured his leg during a gig in Cleveland last night. It’s uncertain how he hurt himself, but he likely busted his knee while busting a dance move. He limped his way through the second half of the show, and even came back out for an encore. (that’s our Biebs!)

Team Justin reps are waiting to hear back from the doctor, but they’re hoping it’s nothing worse than a sprain. This wouldn’t be the first time he’s sacrificed his limbs to perform. Last year the singer tripped over an amp, rolling his ankle and winding up with a fractured foot! Of course, he finished the song without missing a note. What a trouper. One time we stubbed our toe and got out of gym class for a week.

Victims of Bieber Fever, you know what you have to do, right? If you believe in Biebers clap your hands, and he’ll be back up dancing in no time. Maybe Kim Kardashian will kiss it and make it better.

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows World Premiere!

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Harry Potter fans around the world hyperventilating. The first installment of the two-part epic Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows opens wide next Friday, but the cast kicked off festivities last night with the world premiere gala in London. Leading gents Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint looked dapper in dark suits, but costar Emma Watson stole the show (and our hearts) in a gorgeous black lace semi-see-through number. Scandalous! Perhaps she’s trying to catch Dan-Rad’s eye for Round Two of ambushing him with her lips. (jk, guys.)

Speaking of JK (*zing*), her majesty The Rowling looked dazzlingly elegant in a black gown. Helena Bonham Carter did not disappoint in her crazed Amy-Winehouse-On-A-Bender-At-Prom inspired outfit, and even Lisa Marie Presley made an appearance. Why? Because she could. Check out your favorite wizards, muggles and those-who-shall-not-be-named in the gallery below!

Daniel Radcliffe Says Emma Watson Makes Out Like A Wild Animal

Do go on.

Daniel Radcliffe stopped by British chat-show Daybreak yesterday to promote the upcoming Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows film. Soon the discussion turned to his onscreen kiss with costar Emma Watson, and according to Dan-Rad, mackin’ it with Hermione was kind of intimidating. In fact, he says she “ambushed” him.

“I always thought it was going to be this soft sensual sort of moment,” he spilled. “And suddenly there was this vigorous kissing happening to me. She is a bit of an animal…But then, I’m not complaining. There are tens of thousands of men that would cut off limbs to be in that position.”

Hmmm, “Always thought?” Vigorous kissing? Sounds like they’ve wanted to do this for a loooooong time. But what do we know. Reportedly fellow Hogwarts alum Rupert Grint had to be leave the room during the scene because he was laughing so hard. Yeah right. They probably just wanted some alone time…

Only Kanye’s Twitter Understands Him

We tried to go a full twenty-four hours without posting on Kanye West antics. Really we did. But he is too strong. We can’t fight him anymore. Damn you, Kanye.

The rapper is unhappy with how he was treated while filming an interview with Matt Lauer, during which he clarified his feelings on former President George W. Bush. Lauer showed only a short clip of the interview to Bush on a live Today Show discussion this morning, in which Kanye explained, “I didn’t have the grounds to call him a racist. But I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that, we as human beings don’t always choose the right words.”

Seems OK to us. But according to Kanye, something happened during his interview taping that pissed him off. So he confided in his closest friend: his twitter. And quite frankly, we were kind of disturbed by the tortured soul he poured out. In one hour he dropped 17 tweets, each one more haunting than the last.

“While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the ‘MTV’ under me with audio!!!!!!! I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show…” he wrote. “HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT? I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don’t trust anyone but myself! I can’t be everything to everybody anymore. I can’t be everybody’s hero and villain savior and sinner Christian and anti Christ! I create, I’m creative, I have a good heart, everyone will see and understand one day.”

Someone give this man a hug and some valium. But then he continued his descent into Twitter feed madness by wishing that the spirit of The King of Pop was hooked up to a social networking device.

“Everything sounds like noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE NOISE!!!!!!!”  I wish Michael Jackson had twitter!!!!!! Maybe Mike could have explained how the media tried to set him up!!! It’s all a f*cking set up!!!!!”

Even after all that, we still have no idea what possibly could have offended Kanye so deeply. But look on the bright side, Kanye! George Bush says he’s cool with you now. That’s gotta count for…something. Hug it out, fellas.

Ke$ha Trades Day-Glow Dresses For A Day At The Beach


Ke$ha hit up Australia’s gorgeous Bondi beach yesterday, looking positively demure by her standards in a zebra print skirt, shear tank top and black bra. It’s a far cry from the day glow Neon Warrior Princess getup she sported at the MTV European Video Music Awards on Sunday.

She and her friends strolled in the sand and soaked up the rays, as it’s actually summer in Australia right now. (crazy, right?) Everything is topsy-turvy in Australia: they drive on the opposite side of the road, their winter is our summer, and Ke$ha’s songs are actually listenable down there. Crikey.

Kayne West and Taylor Swift Porn Parody In The Works

Everything is a remake these days…*sigh* It appears that the flogged to death horse that is the Kanye West and Taylor Swift VMA Spat is getting new life in a porn. Naturally. Because the sexual tension just oozed out of the moment, are we right?

Vivid Entertainment founder Steve Hirsch told Celebuzz: “We’re always analyzing news stories for their movie potential. The Kanye/Taylor feud has high visibility, is filled with passion and is something we believe that fans of adult films would enjoy. We’re reviewing script concepts and definitely want to include that famous moment at the VMA awards. We plan to go into production in the next two months.”

Now we’ve looked at this from every possible angle, and we fail to see how interrupting an awards show acceptance speech could possibly lead to a sexual encounter of any kind. Unless it’s with the Beyonce character, who is wooed by faux-Kanye’s boldness. (Are we right? Write this down, Vivid people!) According to Hirsche, they’re still working on that part. Yo Hirsche, we’re gonna let you finish, but that Sarah Palin porn parody was the best porn parody of all time! (Note to any readers who happen to be our boss: we’re never seen said porn, and would certainly never admit to such things in print.)

Leave your best Kayne and Taylor porn name ideas in the comments box!

Betty White Prevents Forest Fires, But Not Catastrophic Cuteness Overload


Betty White is on fire these days, and Smokey the Bear is adding fuel to the flames. At 88 years old, the television legend has been named an honorary forest ranger by the U.S. Forest Service. Reportedly the star dreamed of being a ranger as a little girl, but at that time the Forest Service didn’t allow women in its ranks.

Betty achieved her goal this afternoon at a ceremony outside Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where representatives of the service presented her with a ranger’s badge, hat, and a travel-sized Smokey companion. “Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we’re abusing our planet to the point of almost no return,” White said. “In my heart I’ve been a forest ranger all my life, but now I’m official.”

Michael Lohan Will Rumble With Demi Lovato’s Dad If He Doesn’t Shut Up


Look out, because we might have a good ol’ fashioned Disney Dad Throw-Down on our hands. Demi Lovato’s estranged father Patrick has not been shy with his opinions that the break-neck Hollywood lifestyle is to blame for his daughter’s emotional collapse. In fact, he’s been talking about it so much that he has received numerous death threats.

And you know what? All of Patrick’s talk about his daughter’s problems has rubbed Michael Lohan the wrong way. You remember Michael Lohan, right? He’s the guy who became famous for talking about his daughter’s problems in the press. Having regained his parental cred by being permitted to spend time with his institutionalized daughter Lindsay, Mike decided to offer some pearls of wisdom to another dad in a tough spot.

“There are two reasons why I have no respect for people who talk or comment about others,” Michael told Popeater. “First, it’s because, in most cases, those individuals are looking from the outside in, and they are passing judgment or commenting on people they know nothing about. The second reason is because they are too cowardly to say it to the person themselves.”

We’ll let that sink in for a moment. Michael Lohan went to the press and criticized Demi’s dad for talking to the press, despite the fact that Michael himself said he would stop talking to the press in an interview with the press OH MY GOD STOP THIS CRAZY THING!

Michael also issued a warning to Patrick, should he dare to compare Demi with Lindsay. “I ask Demi Lavato’s father to refrain from making asinine statements about my daughter, or say it to my face himself,” he said. “And if so, I will pay for the transportation and his hospital bills.”

We think that would be an incredible fight. There would be no winners, but two losers.
