The 2012 Teen Choice Awards: EW's alternate-category winners -- plus the real ones!

All of those crazy kids’ favorite vamps, wolves, “unique” hairstyles, a bunch of promos for Fox’s fall TV lineup, and scores of unwanted brightly hued surfboards came out to party at last night’s 2012 Teen Choice Awards.

The X Factor‘s Demi Lovato and Glee‘s Kevin McHale co-hosted. Flo Rida, Justin Bieber, and Carly Rae Jepsen performed, and — get this — No Doubt sang live. Hey, it is the ’90s!

The full list of TCA winners is on page 3 of this post; my own personal winners of Fox’s two-hour telecast are below. By all means, list your own in the comments.

Taylor Swift tops Forbes' 'Highest-Paid Celebs Under 30' list

Want to feel like an underachiever?

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the richest entertainers under 30. And it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift wins something yet again, raking in over $57 million from May 2011 to May 2012. The 22-year-old had the Speak Now world tour during that time, which Forbes said brought in a cool $1 million a night.

Last year’s $90 million Monster winner Lady Gaga came in fourth this year, earning $52 million. Forbes attributes the drop to the fact that she didn’t tour during the time frame, and notes that she’s currently selling out shows in Eastern Europe and they expect a jump next year. (Although, $52 million is not exactly a failure.) READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber graduates high school

Image credit: Warner Bros.

Justin Bieber can now officially add high school graduate to his expanding list of accomplishments, which includes holding the No. 1 spot on both the Billboard and iTunes album charts.

The pop sensation, 18, was one of 192 students in St. Michael Catholic Secondary School’s 2012 graduating class in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario. While Bieber didn’t attend the ceremony on June 28, his name was listed in the graduation program. He missed the walk across the stage, but he did participate in a faux commencement ceremony that you may have caught on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in May. Check out the video below.

“I just finished high school,” the singer told the Daily Telegraph in May. ”I passed my test — I’m free! It was hard doing school and work every day.”

Bieber was in the eighth grade when he moved to Atlanta to pursue a music career. He has taken the majority of his courses through e-learning.

Justin Bieber has no idea what the Sistine Chapel is -- VIDEO

Oof, baby.

Justin Bieber was on the Late Show With David Letterman last night, promoting his new album, Believe. The 64-year-old host was at his most curmudgeonly, especially once Bieber displayed his new arm tattoo. Kids today! They release their big summer album and think that gives them the right to deface their bodies! Letterman tried to talk him out of getting another one, but Bieber said he can’t promise that. Letterman persisted, asking the 18-year-old to at least promise not to make his arms look like the Sistine Chapel.

Bieber responded, “I’m not going for the Sixteenth Chapel look.” And Letterman’s day was made.

'All Around the World': 10 Justin Bieber-isms that seem annoying but are actually...cute?

Part 1 of Justin Bieber’s NBC special, All Around the World, flopped in the ratings. If you missed it Wednesday night, the main takeaways were some footage of him passing out in a backstage stairwell after running into a plate glass wall during a concert and Justin comparing his dramatic rise in popularity to Michael Jackson and the Beatles. Yikes!

Here’s what you missed in Thursday’s part 2, because you weren’t watching, because no one was.

Did all the teens just not know this was on? Were they like “What’s NBC — is that like YouTube?” Weird.


Shirtless guys? Corgis? Watch new 'Call Me Maybe' videos! -- WATCH

“Call Me Maybe” is the gift that keeps on giving. As if it wasn’t enough that the unofficial music video featured Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Tisdale, there are versions from Katy Perry, Harvard’s baseball team, Donald Trump, and even the leader of the free world.

Today brings the total up two more. We have (shirtless!) Abercrombie & Fitch models dancing all over the world, and, well, a sign that the end of this trend is most definitely near: Corgis. Check out their versions — as well as a round-up of some more of our favorites — after the jump. READ FULL STORY

What is your damage, Justin Bieber?

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies (see page two). Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!

What is your damage, Justin Bieber? How dare you grow up, ditch the wind-blasted bangs, and turn into The Lady of Shellac?

Forgive me for piling on, Justin Boyfriend, but you are everywhere. Songs from your album Believe (out June 19) are leaking every two minutes. NBC’s airing an hour-long documentary called Justin Bieber Believe: All Around the World on June 21. I cannot escape you.

Guess where it’s hardest (to escape you)? IN BED. That’s what I said. READ FULL STORY

If Bieber was your boyfriend, he'd serenade you in France -- VIDEO

Ah, Paris — city of lights! City of love! City of swooning Beliebers, hundreds of whom are still recovering after an impromptu balcony performance by their dreamy messiah!

Not even a mild concussion could slow down Justin Bieber, who recently jetted to France to promote his upcoming album Believe. Earlier today, he told fans to meet him at Universal Music’s office in Paris’ Latin Quarter — and the girls turned out in droves, transforming a quiet street into a hormone-clogged concert venue. They squealed with glee as the Biebs crooned “Baby” and “One Time” through a megaphone, growing louder every time he touched his famous hair. Check out the clip below to see what happens when Justin combines his new song “Boyfriend,” with a cheeky pelvic thrust. (Hint: It involves more screaming.)


'Vampire Diaries,' 'Hunger Games,' and Bieber dominate Teen Choice Award nominations

On July 22, adolescents will briefly stop texting in order to celebrate their favorite movies, TV shows, musicians, sports stars, and more at the 14th annual Teen Choice Awards. Who are we kidding — they’ll be texting as they celebrate. The show’s nominee list was revealed today, and it’s filled with exactly what you’d expect: The Hunger Games, vampires, Justin Bieber, and more vampires.

The Hunger Games is going head-to-head with Twilight: The One With the Sex (a.k.a. Breaking Dawn Part I), as well as The AvengersMirror Mirror, and Wrath of the Titans in the Choice Movie: Sci-Fi/Fantasy category. Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence racked up individual nominations as well, as did the Hunger Games book trilogy. Yes, there’s now a Choice Book award. Other nominees include the Twilight saga, the Divergent series, Nicholas Sparks’ The Lucky One, and…The Giver, which was first published in 1993, before most of today’s teenagers were born.


Justin Bieber talks Kim Kardashian and drinking beer in new 'GQ' interview

As another pop star put it a decade ago, Justin Bieber is not a boy, not yet a man. But he’d certainly like to transition to an older fan base, so as Bieber Fever hits adults (or is it just me?), the eighteen-year-old opened up to GQ about drinking, haters, and the struggles about how one goes from teenybopper to Timberlake  in 2012 .

Features in magazines for adults, as opposed to Tiger Beat and Seventeen, certainly help, and this latest interview shows a more mature Biebs than when Rolling Stone caught up with him last year and he made some ill-advised remarks about abortion and Korea.This new media-savvy Bieber is a “Baby” no more. He even shot a fun cameo for last week’s NSFW Saturday Night Live digital short. With his new album Believe out June 19th, the timing is perfect for a big leap forward. Adult superstar? Never say never. (Side note: The new video for “Boyfriend” is certainly helping things.) We parsed through the profile below to bring you up to speed.
