Tag: Justin Bieber (51-60 of 153)

Oh, Canada! Justin Bieber is reportedly a cousin of Ryan Gosling, Avril Lavigne, Celine Dion

Breaking news: All of our neighbors to the north are apparently related to each other. At least, the famous ones are. Ancestry.com’s genealogical genies have discovered that Justin Bieber shares blood with a cadre of Canadian stars including Belleville, Ontario native Avril Lavigne, Québécois Celine Dion, and Ryan Gosling — who, like Bieber, was born in London. No, not that London.

The links are distant, but they’re there. As the Associated Press summarizes, Bieber and the Crazy, Stupid, Love star are 11th cousins once removed. He and the sk8er grrrl are 12th cousins. All three share two common relatives — a pair of French-born Quebec settlers who were born in the early 1600s. The man, Mathurin Roy, was a twinkly-eyed heartthrob who found himself the subject of the first hand-drawn memes. (“Salut, mademoiselle.) The woman, Marguerite Bire, bought all her clothes at the 17th century version of Hot Topic and died when her proto-flatiron burst into flames.


Lady Gaga covers Justin Bieber by barfing on stage -- VIDEO

You’re nobody until millions of fans love you — or until you puke while performing in concert, whichever one comes first.

Pop tart Justin Bieber first blazed the trail by yakking in Glendale, Ariz., which is in no way a comment on the fine people of the Grand Canyon State. Now Lady Gaga — ever the trendsetter — has taken up the barf baton, tossing her cookies during a tour stop in Barcelona. Insert your best Lady Gag Reflex joke here.

Unlike Biebs, Gaga barely missed a beat, continuing to dance sexily as a slowed down “Edge of Glory” played despite the throw-up. Thanks to her prerecorded vocals, the song itself was barely interrupted. The clip, if you can stomach it:


Oh 'Baby': Justin Bieber to perform at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show doesn’t air until Dec. 4, but the performers are already lining up for the iconic runway spectacle. Rihanna, Bruno Mars and now Justin Bieber are all set to take the stage for this year’s show.

Wait a second. Justin Bieber? Yes, it’s true. The teen pop star will grace the runway alongside the Angels and their $2.5 million bras this winter, and while I’m sure Bieber‘s excited about it, I can’t help but feel slightly queasy. (Though not this queasy.)

Now, I know he’s 18 years old. There is no real reason he shouldn’t be allowed to perform with half-naked ladies. And yet, it seems to be sending the wrong message. After all, according to Adriana Lima, this is a show where models embark on liquid diets for nine days prior to their runway walk. They don’t consume anything at all (not even water) in the 12 hours leading up to the show. When they finally do take the stage, it’s to be objectified by men and women alike. Is this the kind of thing we want Bieber’s young female fans to be exposed to? READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber steals the show with 'DWTS' performance -- VIDEO

Leave it to Justin Bieber to save the day. The superstar blasted through a glitzy silver barricade in a leather jumpsuit to resuscitate last night’s otherwise uneventful Dancing With the Stars: All Stars results show.

Bieber even overshadowed Pitbull’s party-popping, glow stick fest with his ”As Long As You Love Me” performance. Aside from the fact that Biebs resembled ”The Leather Man” from one of my favorite SNL skits, the pop sensation reminded me of Justin Timberlake circa 1998 with his shockingly smooth dance moves. The performance got even better when he took off his bedazzled leather vest. Sure, it left me staring at his scrawny arms, but it made the outfit look slightly less ridiculous.

The song, which is the latest iTunes chart-topping single off his new album Believe, is also extremely catchy. ”As long as you love me/ We could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke/ As long as you love me/ I’ll be your platinum, I’ll be your silver, I’ll be your gold.”

All I can say is that Selena Gomez is one lucky lady. Watching Bieber perform could have easily served as eliminated all-star Pamela Anderson’s consolation prize.

The Believe Tour kicks off this Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.

Justin Bieber's trash can + milk crate = BieberBot

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Or something.

An American artist who goes by the name XVALA claims to have nabbed Justin Bieber’s trash can and a milk crate from Facebook’s cafeteria to create a BieberBot. “Justin Bieber’s profile is a spawn of social media and cloning him would make his status widely accessible to the public,” said XVALA. The gallery that represents XVALA said: “[It is] partially inspired by the YouTube conception of the pop star and the social media phenomenon that has ultimately transmuted cultures globally.” See a more disturbing image below: READ FULL STORY

Fake Bieber biopic trailer: It's hard out here for a Canadian

Justin Bieber’s unlikely rise to superstardom is a story for the ages. As legend has it, a scrappy young Biebs endured nearly twelve whole years on this planet before achieving international notoriety, all the while facing snide put-downs from record executives (“Brushing your hair forward like that ain’t gonna help us sell any records. Foreheads are where it’s at, Bieber!”) and his long-suffering mother’s gentle but firm reality checks. (“Did you ever hear of a young, white, cute, Christian male making it in America?” Well, have you?)

At least, that’s the story told in 8 Kilometers: The Gritty Life Story of Justin Bieber, a new faux trailer from UCB Comedy. Though the video misses a golden opportunity to showcase Glee Project contestant Dani Shay‘s swoopy bangs, it’s a great parody of the trailer for Justin Bieber: Never Say Never  — and, specifically, the way it portrays its subject’s struggle as something uniquely difficult. He worked his entire 18-year-long life for this, you guys! Check out the clip for yourself below.


Justin Bieber congratulates Missy Franklin on Twitter

Which would you rather have: a gold medal or the public support of Justin Bieber?

Missy Franklin doesn’t have to choose. The U.S. Olympic swimmer (and true Belieber) now has both after she claimed the gold in the 100m backstroke. Bieber himself extended the digital congratulations, tweeting, “heard @FranklinMissy is a fan of mine. now im a fan of hers too. CONGRATS on winning GOLD! #muchlove.” READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart, Justin Bieber, and Snooki read mean tweets about themselves -- VIDEO

Jimmy Kimmel Live! has become a factory for laugh-out-loud segments that have fun at guests’ expenses. Last night was no different. Celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Justin Bieber, and Snooki read nasty tweets about themselves out loud to the camera.

While some of the tweets targeted stars’ careers — James Van Der Beek’s show Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Katy Perry’s movie Katy Perry: Part of Me — the funniest ones were personal attacks. Larry King look repulsed as he read, ”Did you know that if you skinned Larry King & ironed out his leather, you could make enough coats to give 1 to every poor child in America?”

Most of the celebs took the insults in stride, but Danny McBride couldn’t quite suppress his anger.

Watch the video below (the segment starts halfway through the clip).


George Clooney voted celebrity best fit to be U.S. president

President George Clooney?

A poll this week found that 35 percent of men considered Clooney the celebrity best fit for the presidency. Rapper Jay-Z trailed behind with 20 percent of the vote (maybe he could run for VP?). Even more women — 46 percent –picked Clooney, but New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was their runner-up with 27 percent.

The poll, from lifestyle sites AskMen.com and TrèsSugar.com, asked men and women about entertainment and politics to compile the ”great male” and ”great female survey,” respectively. When asked about real politicians, 79 percent of men thought President Barack Obama was the presidential nominee with the most wingman potential. Obama was also chosen by both men and women as the manliest politician. Really? Did anybody watch Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer?

When asked ”which male public figure are you most tired of hearing about?” 67 percent of men said Justin Bieber. LeBron James and Kanye West tied for second place. With 62 percent of the vote, Kim Kardashian was the female public figure of choice in the same category. It’s only fitting that Kardashian has been linked to Bieber and West, and that James and West are (if you believe Google image search) besties. Women agreed that they’ve had enough of Bieber and Kardashian.

Men selected Emma Stone as the female celebrity they wanted their girlfriends to emulate (51 percent). The nine percent of men who weren’t tired of hearing about her voted for Kardashian.

In a close race, the band the Black Keys was named the ”next Michael Jackson” (33 percent). Keeping with the contradictory results, 23 percent picked Justin Bieber, who came in third after Usher.
