Don’t worry, Justin Bieber fans: If Selena Gomez ever stops by your house, you don’t have to bother taking down the dartboard you made out of her Seventeen cover. The bear trap with Selena’s name scrawled on it dozens of times, however… maybe slide that thing into the coat closet. “It’s a little odd, but I understand it completely,” the “Who Says” singer told Batimore’s Z104.3 about her man’s rabid supporters. “It’s amazing to me to see how many passionate fans there are. So obviously, you’ve just got to think of the fans first, and that’s OK.” Hmmm, all those Twitter death threats Selena received from Bieliebers seem to fall outside the realm of “OK,” but then again, we’ve never received one. Do you…do you guys just not like us as much?
Gomez instead looks on the bright side, musing that it’s “kind of cool we have our own individual [fans].” Sure, fans whom the authorities hope will never, ever run into each other in a darkened alley, West Side Story-style. We have to warn you though: If you ever say anything bad about Selena’s music, hair or other non-Bieber related attribute, she will not be so nice. You assumed she wouldn’t have a revenge bear trap of her own, with your name on it? Oh, you fool. You beautiful, beautiful fool.
This news is just crazy. Justin Bieber nearly caused a riot in Liverpool, England yesterday.Ã‚Â When fans heard he was staying at the Hard Days Night hotel, they swarmed by the hundreds. The Beatles similarities are uncanny! The Fab Four were also from Liverpool and now Justin’s causing a replica of the hysteria that surrounded them. Justin was supposed to go for a Beatles tour around the city, but that’s out of the window now! Forget leaving his hotel—police warned (and even threatened to arrest) the Biebs or any member of his team against going anywhere near the balcony for fear that it would incite or turn into a “possible riot situation”. Roads surrounding the hotel had to be shut down because of the situation. Bieber sounded like he couldn’t believe it himself and tweeted, ” THIS IS CRAZY!”
Finally after a while, police allowed Justin to go on the balcony, believing it would placate the crowds (read: the girls going nuts). Justin had earlier sent out a soothing tweet that read, “trying to work it out so I can say whatup to my fans”. That’s him in the balcony, and he even made a heart sign to the hordes. Unfortunately, even the appearance didn’t help because the girls didn’t budge! Check out the gallery below to see the madness the Bieliebers caused.
Don’t mess with Bieber. Or, more accurately, don’t piss off Bieber fans. That’s the lesson Best New Artist Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding is learning today. Spalding, a jazz bassist, beat Justin Bieber, Drake, Florence And The Machine, and Mumford & Sons in the category at the awards show last night, a huge upset since most people haven’t actually heard of her. As a result of her win, angry Beiber fans took to Spalding’s Wikipedia page to edit it with some false and spiteful new information.
Gawker.com took some screengrabs of Spalding’s page which has since been cleaned up, but had been updated with gems like “She is a f— reatard!” and “JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?” and perhaps most cruel of all, that her middle name is “Quesadilla.” For more of the pleasantries the newest Wiki editors contributed, check out Gawker. Bieber himself was pretty upset not to win the award, saying “I worked really hard these past few years and you know, I’m not going to lie — I was disappointed.” But he then added “Bieber fans, don’t get too upset. Be happy.” So take the hint, Beliebers. Let this woman enjoy her win in peace! [Photos: Getty Images]
If you’re like us, you drift off to sleep each night to the melodic sounds of Jon Stewart‘s voice as he and The Daily Show team deliver the news of the day. But as we were drifting last night a wee bit earlier than usual, we were really confused because with our eyes closed, Jon Stewart didn’t sound at all like Jon Stewart. He sounded a lot like…Justin Bieber? Indeed, the Biebs showed up at TDS last night to switch places with Stewart for the show’s intro which made for a funny, if not bizarre, crossover for people who love a satirical skew on current events and are also 12-year-old girls. Check out the Bieber/Stewart switch and then go get yourself a #neversaynever tattoo on your butt crack for kicks.
UPDATE (10:52pm): Now with video! Click here to watch Justin Bieber get booed (VIDEO).
Is the beginning of the end near for Justin Bieber? The diminuitive, well-coiffed Canadian pop star attended the big New York City premiere of his new 3D epic, Never Say Never, at Manhattan’s Regal E-Walk 13 theater (which, if we’re being completely honest with you, is NOT exactly the swankiest movie palace in town). For a man with as much star power and juice as Justin Bieber supposedly possesses, the film didn’t draw many A-Listers on opening night. Hip-hop impresarios Russell Simmons and L.A. Reid were there, as were Spike Lee, Deborah Norville and Stephen Baldwin (who, we might add, is also tight with Hannah Montana herself, Miley Cyrus), but the likes of Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Jasmine Villegas were nowhere to be found on the red carpet. However, the night only got worse for our boy Biebs.
According to dozens of Twitter feeds, Justin Bieber hit the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden tonight and, when shown on in the in-house Jumbotron, was loudly booed by those in attendance. Popular NBA Twitter feed @offseasonblog reported that “Biebs is wearing a purple bow tie at the Knicks and got booed,” while VH1’s own @samdotcom wrote that “The Biebs got booed at MSG. Girl broke thru security to touch him; she returned to her seat sobbing & shaking.” And if you search Twitter for “Bieber booed” now, you’ll see literally hundreds of tweets and retweets.
