Justin Bieber apologizes for visit to controversial shrine honoring Japanese war criminals

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.

Justin Bieber gets booed at the Juno Awards

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:

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez perform sexy dance routine -- VIDEO

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.

Justin Bieber winks, refuses to talk Selena Gomez in deposition -- VIDEO

Justin-Bieber-clip.jpg

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.

Watch the deposition clip after the jump.

Selena Gomez is an 'elegant princess' in Justin Bieber's Oscar photo

Selena Gomez stepped out at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night looking pretty glamorous — and Hollywood gawkers weren’t the only ones who noticed. The pop star’s ex, Justin Bieber, tweeted a rather up close and personal picture of the starlet on his Instagram, calling her “the most elegant princess in the world.” Naturally, the photo prompted lots of attention from his fans, including comments such as, “he still loves her! Hope they can work things out!”

So what’s the deal? Are the two actually getting back together? Supposedly, they weren’t allowed to communicate during the 21-year-old’s stint in rehab, so maybe this was just Bieber giving a well-deserved compliment to his former sweetheart. Then again, given that several large pizzas magically showed up at the Dolby Theatre Sunday, the Oscars proved that anything could happen that night — so maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss the thought.

'Loser Keeps Bieber' billboard goes viral

Justin Bieber made headlines once again (thankfully not for egging houses or getting arrested this time, though) when his face was plastered on a Chicago billboard. The electronic billboard features a photo of Bieber sandwiched between an American and a Canadian hockey player that says “Loser keeps Bieber.” Man, the stakes for the Olympics are higher than I thought!

Miley Cyrus gives advice to Justin Bieber: 'I don't see a Miley mug shot'

Miley Cyrus has some advice for Justin Bieber: Stay home when you want to party!

Cyrus appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, and Leno asked her about Bieber’s recent legal troubles. Cyrus voiced what many people have thought: Doesn’t he have people he can pay to make sure he stays out of trouble? Barring that, “Party at your house. Buy a house, and add a club to it,” she said to audience cheers.

That must be what Cyrus is doing post-salvia scandal in 2010 (a simpler time!). Noting she’s seen compilations of celebrity mug shots online, she points out that for all the scandalous headlines she generates,  “I don’t see a Miley mug shot yet!”

“I get the most flack of anybody,” she said. “I’m not doing anything illegal. I’m doing a lot of s—, but I’m not doing anything illegal. Everything I do is legal in California.”
