As they do each year, the puckish animators over at JibJab have skewered the events of the past 12 months. JibJab has now been in the “year-in-review” game for a decade, and still its signature ensemble jigs (~1:32) are good for a laugh. We should all strive for such consistency. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Justin Bieber (1-10 of 160)
In the pantheon of celebrity mustaches, Justin Bieber’s recent attempt ranks somewhere between a Matthew Broderick and an Ashton Kutcher. Unlike the greats—say, Hulk Hogan’s or Salvador Dali’s—a mustache like this mostly incites a desire to shave it off.
Justin Bieber and newly minted Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel have a lot in common: Both are young, wildly successful, and very outspoken, boldly proclaiming that they’re here to stay and unstoppable, sorry, haters. In fact, there’s so much overlap in their statements that the folks at Sports Illustrated wrote up a Who Said It quiz featuring quotes from the two.
Think you know which one gloated that there’s “Nothing illegal about being 18+ in a casino and winning money”? Or which one wants to party with “Charlie Sheen, Rob Gronkowski and Tiger Woods”? Give it a shot over at Sports Illustrated.
Back in February 2013, an unlikely Twitter war broke out — Justin Bieber and his millions of Beliebers began attacking The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney after the drummer made some off-handed comments to TMZ.
When a paparazzo asked Carney if he thought the pop star should feel snubbed by his lack of a Grammy nomination, the rocker replied: “Grammys are for music, not for the money, and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Bieber didn’t take too kindly to that response, telling his followers via Twitter that “the Black Keys drummer should be slapped around haha.”
In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Carney is reflecting on the incident, which lasted for months as Bieber’s fans berated the drummer on social media. READ FULL STORY
Justin Bieber found out Seth Rogen doesn’t like him, and he seems bummed about it.
Earlier this week, Rogen spoke to Howard Stern on Sirius and reminisced about the first time he met the Biebs. They were at a German talk show, and someone told Rogen that Bieber was a fan and wanted to meet him. But when the two had their meeting, Bieber didn’t exactly show his excitement. “I was like, ‘He’s a little bit of a motherf—er. Whatever. He’s a bit of a d—,'” Rogen told Stern.
Seth Rogen is not a Belieber.
According to Digital Spy, while talking to Howard Stern on Sirius Monday, the Neighbors star explained that he’d met the young pop star a few times. “He’s a good example of someone, who you meet, who you think you are going to hate — and then you get to hate him… you meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations,” Rogen said.
Once again, Justin Bieber is making headlines for a photo he posted on Instagram. Luckily, this one has nothing to do with Anne Frank or urinating. It does, however, involve World War II. Intriguing, right?
While visiting Tokyo, the young Biebs paid a visit to the Yasukuni Shrine. As you may know, the Yasukuni Shrine is a big point of dispute between China and Japan, because it honors Japan’s fallen WWII soldiers — including those who committed major atrocities in Asia during the war. So when Bieber posted a photo of himself bowing his head at the entrance to the shrine with the caption, “Thank you for your blessings,” he offended many of his Chinese fans.
Have Canadian fans stopped Beliebing? It certainly seems that way, given their reaction to the Biebs at this year’s Juno Awards.
After beating out the likes of Celine Dion, Robin Thicke, Arcade Fire, and many others to win the Juno Fan Choice Award, Bieber’s name received a mix of cheers and boos when he was announced as the winner. Sadly, or perhaps happily, Bieber himself was not there to witness the booing and/or defend himself. Then again, his absence might be the very reason why some fans finally decided they were ready to take a stand against him.
Watch the booing below:
Proving that their young love is meant to be — seriously, guys — Justin Bieber posted a pair of steamy videos in which he dances a choreographed routine (to John Legend’s Ordinary People, of all things), allegedly with his on-again, off-again lady love Selena Gomez.
Bieber reportedly posted two back-to-back clips on Instagram on March 10. But before the posts could earn thousands of angry comments from heart-broken Beliebers, the young singer took them down from his social media account.
Bieber’s representative did not respond to EW’s request for comment.
In today’s Justin Bieber news, the little troublemaker is — surprise! — hilariously resistant in a just-released video of his deposition from last week.
The deposition was not for his egging or his drunk-driving cases, but for a paparazzi-related battery lawsuit from the summer. And by Bieber’s actions, it was clear he did not want to be there. Some highlights:
“I don’t have to listen to anything you have to say,” he says in a childlike mumble when told to listen up. Aw, Baby Justin is pouting!
Selena Gomez is off-limits. After he’s asked if he knows Gomez, Bieber puts his face in his hand, takes a deep breath, then pops back up: “Don’t ask me about her again.” So dramatic, so funny. He repeats this, oh, six, seven, 50, times, all while wagging his finger.
He doesn’t remember if he’s been to Australia. Oh, to be rich and famous and Justin Bieber and not remember if you’ve been to Australia. “I don’t know if I’ve been to Australia.” He turns to his lawyer. “I been to Australia?”
Footage of paparazzi does not qualify as film to Justin. When told to look up at a TV screen to watch a film, Bieber is unhappy to see that it’s just some documentary-type footage. “Is this a film?” he asks so many times they have to pause the video. What did he think? They were putting on Wolf of Wall Street?
He winked. Bieber looked at the camera and winked. Classic deposition move.
Falling asleep is one of his avoidance tactics? At one point, the lawyer asks a question Bieber doesn’t want to answer so how does he deal with it? He closes his eyes and rests his head against the chair. Classic deposition move #2.
He has a rocky relationship with Usher. “Usher? That sounds familiar.” Bieber says. You know, Usher is the reason why Bieber became famous but his name only “sounds familiar.” But later, Bieber’s memory seems to be refreshed and when asked if Usher is a confidante, he replies, “I guess? Yes?” Poor Usher.
He gets “instrumental” and “detrimental” confused. “Isn’t it true that Usher was instrumental in starting your career?” the lawyer asks. “I was found on YouTube, I think that I was detrimental to my own career,” Bieber replies. Yes, yes, you are.
