And they were like, baby, baby, baby, NO! Justin Bieber's issue is worst-selling 'Vanity Fair' in 12 years

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Boy, that Justin Bieber is really something! He can sing, he can dance, he can dazzle us with his ability to do things in the third dimension! Is there anything that tiny, talented Canuck can’t do?!” Well, we hate to burst your Bieber bubble, but it turns out there is something the 17-year fails at: Selling magazines. (And, no we don’t mean like when elementary school kids wrangle you into subscriptions for fundraisers. Although you probably should get EW. You know, for the children.)

According to WWD.com, the February issue of Vanity Fair that featured a kiss-stained Bieber on their cover is on pace to becoming their worst-selling one in 12 years. The VF disappointment (his cover story, which asked/threatened readers with the question “Is this the adorable, inescapable face of 2011?,” reportedly moved just 246,000 copies) isn’t the only one for the windswept wonder, as it’s also noted that issues of Teen Vogue and People that prominently featured the “Baby” singer didn’t do so hot, either.

If you're Selena Gomez, who's your Shia LaBeouf?

After Another Cinderella Story, the video of Selena Gomez being tricked into meeting her crush Shia LaBeouf — and freaking out — is my favorite thing she’s ever done. Watch it (again) below. Then, because we’re in the mood for a good laugh, share your most memorable/embarrassing celebrity encounter. Think EW’s Sandra Gonzalez being surprised by Nathan Fillion spinning around in a chair on the Castle set to say, “Why, hello.” Think my friend Tamara meeting Ralph Fiennes outside the stage door when he did Hamlet in London, saying two words to him (“Thank you,” because, she insisted, it summed up everything she felt about him), and bursting into tears. Think of me if I ever ran into Alexander Skarsgard after he inspired my original Lifetime movie pitch Spoiler Alert: Love? READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber are the best-paid stars under 30. Think of all the Ramen they could buy!

Ah, to be young. Youth is a wonderful and tumultuous time filled with exciting career prospects, rocky romances, and making millions of dollars from touring the world, singing, and wearing zany outfits. Okay, so not so much for most under 30-somethings. (In fact, for most under 30-somethings, take out that last part and just add in “Paying off student loans and sharing an apartment with roughly seven people.”) But, then again, Lady Gaga has never been like most under 30-somethings.

The seemingly unstoppable pop star, who is just 25 years old, tops this year’s Forbes list of the best-paid celebrities that are under the age of 30. Forbes estimates that, over the past year, Lady Gaga has earned upwards of $90 million, thanks largely in part to her massive touring schedule and record sales.

Still, Gaga, who rocketed up from No. 3 spot where she sat last year, isn’t the only one making me grateful Cribs isn’t still around to make me wonder where things all went terribly, terribly wrong for me. READ FULL STORY

Jason Sudeikis confuses Justin Bieber for 'Make-A-Wish' child

On Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday night, Jason Sudeikis appeared to talk about the MTV Movie Awards, basketball, and everyone’s favorite pint-sized subject, Justin Bieber. Talking about their respective experiences playing in the NBA All-Star celebrity game — which saw Sudeikis teamed up with “four NBA legends and Common” and Kimmel with Bieber himself — the duo discussed the surprising strength of the “Baby” singer. “He turned out to be the MVP,” Kimmel said. (Of course — it takes a lot of arm muscle to hold up the hair dryer for that long.)

Sudeikis, however, delivered the real zinger of the evening: “I didn’t even know it was [Bieber] for the first two quarters,” he told Kimmel. “I thought it was a make-a-wish situation.” Harsh? Yes. But it’s proof that Sudeikis (who jokingly claimed he’s prepared 4,000 Twilight jokes) will be anything but gentle hosting Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. A good sign, if you ask me — it’s been too long since Ricky Gervais shook up Hollywood awards shows. Watch a clip from the interview embedded after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez only appear to be kissing to raise money for charity

The Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez Aloha Kissing Tour continues. Apparently, the sounds of cameras clicking has the same effect on this teenage couple as the tapping of champagne glasses does on a pair of blushing newlyweds. Enough with the Shmoopy!

This is my personal favorite (left), but only because the position of Gomez’s right hand makes it seem like she’s about to say, “What are you doing, dude?”

Have you had enough of the teen Shmoopy, or do you find their young love the most endearing celebrity romance since Scott Baio and Erin Moran?

Want to be Justin Bieber's Obsession? Wear his new perfume.

Hurry, girls! If you wear Someday, Justin Bieber’s new Fan Exclusive eau de parfum, he might kiss your neck, he might give you the key to his heart, he might give you a piggy-back ride. And he will never let go. I’d like to say more, but I can’t compete with the fragrance’s marketing pitch:

“Someday by Justin Bieber is more than just a fragrance: it’s energy with a state-of-mind that inspires. It is a personal gift straight from his heart, giving fans a chance to get one step closer to Justin. It’s a fragrance he can’t get enough of and can’t stay away from, making those who wear it irresistible.”

Baby, baby, baby, ew: Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez share (another) awkward kiss

Sorry, Harold Camping, but this is what the end of the world looks like. Well, for tween girls, anyway.

During Sunday night’s broadcast of the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, Top New Artist winner Justin Bieber planted one on his ladyfriend Selena Gomez on live television, for all the world to see. Not only devastating his young female fans, but making people of all ages terribly uncomfortable. READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga edges Oprah atop 'Forbes' Celebrity 100 list

Forbes placed the singer at the top of its Celebrity 100 list, which ranks the most powerful people in the entertainment business.

Let’s not quibble too much with Forbes‘ methodology, which credits celebs with the strongest web presence. In this case, they might be confusing simple popularity and crass self-promotion with real power, but let’s move on. Oprah, who earned $290 million in the last 12 months, ranked second, and Justin Bieber debuted on the list in the third spot. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber kisses Selena Gomez. Where does this rank amongst pop culture's most awkward smooches?

Justin Bieber’s caught-on-camera kiss with girlfriend Selena Gomez is awkward for two reasons: 1) The way Gomez goes in for a second peck, and catches Bieber’s cheek instead, and 2) I really feel as though I shouldn’t be analyzing the way two teenagers smooch — especially in slow motion. And yet, here I am doing just that anyway! Oh, blogging.

But where does this rank amongst pop culture’s most awkward kisses? READ FULL STORY
