Celebrities rock the vote, urge you to do the same via Twitter

Merry Election Day! If your polling place is like mine, it took just eight minutes or so to participate in the democratic process this morning. If you live in Staten Island, New Jersey, Fairfax, Va., or any number of other places, voting might be a little more difficult. But no matter how long your wait or how bitter the cold, it’s important to cast a ballot — because if you don’t, you’ll be disappointing the dozens of celebrities who appeared in political PSAs this year. And do you really want to be responsible for making Selena Gomez and Jonah Hill cry?

Now that the day of reckoning has finally come, politically-minded celebs are out in full force urging normals to vote. They’re also putting their millions where their mouths are, voting themselves and then bragging about doing so on Twitter. (Unless, of course, they’re underage.) And then there are those who are treating the whole thing like a joke — just what we’d expect from Comedy Central’s best and brightest. Here are a few of our favorite Election Day tweets from boldfaced names:


Oprah will interview Justin Bieber, so what should they talk about?

Add Oprah to the list of Beliebers.

The talk-show host announced via a tweet that she would be interviewing Justin Bieber as part of her Oprah’s Next Chapter series. His episode will air Nov. 25 on OWN. Her other recent tweets inform us that she attended a Believe concert, quotes “One Less Lonely Girl” and –eat your heart out, teens! — posts a photo of herself backstage.

Oprah’s recent chats with Rihanna and Kelsey Grammer have shown that Oprah has no qualms about going there – but I can’t really think what super-scandalous revelations could come out about Bieber. His biggest threat to his image was the baby drama, which, while hilarious for a parody, turned out to be untrue.  READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift on 'Ellen': Which ex still rings her bell? -- VIDEO

Taylor Swift has a message for John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and more: Don’t send her angry emails.

Swift is on Ellen this afternoon, and in the preview clip below, she talks about trying to maintain “a shred of dignity” by not specifically naming names on songs about ex-boyfriends – because otherwise they’ll send her angry emails. Ellen DeGeneres teased her for awhile about Zac Efron – the two sang a very cute duet together when Swift was last on the program – but Swift insists they never dated, like ever. She was similarly tight-lipped about who “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was about.

DeGeneres tried to solve the mystery, handing Swift a bell and telling her to ring it when the picture of the guy it’s about came up. She then showed pics of Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Mayer and others, but Swift remained silent.

Swift got introspective after many pictures, wondering what so many photos said about the length of her relationships. “There’s never been two guys on the screen two visits in a row,” she said. “It’s sad.”

She should write a song about it.

Check out the interrogation – complete with some telling silence after Cory Monteith’s picture – below: READ FULL STORY

Penis enlargement, Twitter pranks and a love child: A brief history of lawsuits involving Justin Bieber

For most, turning 18 means being able to buy lottery ticket or vote. For Justin Bieber, it meant he became the target of a wealth of lawsuits ranging from the strange to the, um, very strange.

Take this latest case: TMZ has obtained a copy of a lawsuit filed in Michigan wherein a man claims that Bieber purchased a penis enlargement with a stolen credit card. And that’s not even the craziest part! He also impregnated the man’s “daughter” Selena Gomez on his “Canadian bear rug,” gave Gomez an STD, and used the man’s stolen American Express card to pay for an abortion.

In honor of this surprisingly detailed lawsuit, we’ve compiled a timeline of all the legal action involving Bieber.


Aaron Carter says Justin Bieber's new video reminds him of 'Aaron's Party'. Which tween idol do you prefer?

Hey, Justin. Hey, it’s Aaron. I can’t come out tonight.” I need to talk about your video.

On Monday, Aaron Carter tweeted, “Justin Bieber’s new video reminds me of my video for Aaron’s Party.” Carter is referring to Bieber’s new self-directed video for his duet with Nicki Minaj, “Beauty and the Beat.” While the two videos are different — and Carter certainly didn’t say it was a rip-off — he’s got a point. For anyone who was the right tween age for “Aaron’s Party,” the “Beauty” video was bound to bring back a few PG-rated house party memories. (Although Carter’s party never had the star grinding against Nicki Minaj).

Because we at PopWatch will take just about any excuse to look back at that 2000 (!) hit, we broke down some intel regarding teen pop idols then and now.

Number of Albums Sold:
1.5 million (for Believe)(doesn’t include digital downloads)

Justin Bieber 'secret' footage released on Twitter

Cyber-bullying victims: Not just anonymous teens. For a few days, it looked like Justin Bieber had been a victim as well.

For those not part of the nearly 29 million that follow Bieber’s every move on Twitter, the drama started Wednesday, when he tweeted that his computer and camera were stolen from him backstage. “sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy.” READ FULL STORY

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.
