POLL: Which New Year's Eve bash will you be tuning in for?

Much like the other anxiety-causing questions that hang heavy over your head on New Year’s Eve (“When should I leave this party?” “What will my resolution be?” “Who should I kiss at midnight?” “Why did I kiss that person at midnight?!”) “Which televised New Year’s Eve bash should I watch?” looms just as tauntingly over the holiday. Unfortunately the networks aren’t going to make your decision much easier this year, as there’s a plethora of specials to tune into to watch that blasted ball drop.

You’ll have to choose your allegiances to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, as he’ll be ringing in 2012 on ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, along with the likes of Lady Gaga, Pitbull, Hot Chelle Rae, The Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am; while she’ll be on MTV for their New Year’s Eve Bash with Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Mac Miller, and J. Cole. (Then again, you might have to take into consideration that Bieber’s New Years won’t really count, on account of his being Canadian and all.) READ FULL STORY

Rebecca Black, Justin Bieber, and Herman Cain top 2011 Google search lists

friday

Santa knows what you’ve been Googling all year now, too: According to ABC News, Google released their lists for the top searches in the U.S. for 2011 and Rebecca Black, Justin Bieber, Herman Cain, and the art of planking all ranked the highest in their respective categories, Fastest Rising Searches of 2011, Most Popular People, Fastest Rising Politics Searches, and Fastest Rising Google Image Searches. (In other words, America is officially placed on the naughty and Do Not Call list.)

Fueled by the I-Can’t-Believe-This-Is-Real YouTube phenom that was the “Friday” video (and perhaps some fact-checking to find out if, in fact, “Tomorrow is Saturday and Sunday comes afterward”) newcomer Rebecca Black was no. 1 Google’s Fastest Rising Searches of 2011 list, beating out Google’s own Google+ and topping  some of 2011’s most newsworthy names including Ryan Dunn, Casey Anthony, Adele and Steve Jobs.  Here’s the full list: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to celebrate New Year's Eve on different networks

Every time I think I’m a grown up, I find myself caring about something like whether Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will be able to share a kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve. They’ll both be in NYC, but performing on different networks. Gomez will take the stage for MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012, along with Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Mac Miller, and J. Cole. Bieber is one of the performers on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012, as well as Lady Gaga, Pitbull, and Hot Chelle Rae in New York, and The Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am in Los Angeles. Were I a network exes, I’d try to find a way to block off a tiny portion of the street so Bieber and Gomez could run to each other as the clock ticked down and the million-strong crowd’s cheers swelled. I want to see the ball drop, but I would totally watch the romantic Bieber-Gomez kiss picture-in-picture. Bieber likes grand romantic gestures. THIS COULD BE HIS BIGGEST ONE YET!

Casey Anthony, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian among biggest stories of 2011

Though Harold Camping turned out to be wrong — twice! — 2011 wasn’t a banner year for humanity. Just look at the most-searched online terms, according to Bing: Hurricane Irene (No. 3 Most Searched News Story), Japan earthquake (No. 4), Amy Winehouse’s death (No. 5). Sitting at No. 1 is no surprise to Nancy Grace: the Casey Anthony trial. It really can’t compete with natural disasters for true tragedy, but if you’re in the mood to lament our civilization, you can’t really do better than our universal obsession with the Anthony trial.

If there’s a silver lining, it’s that we cared much less about Kate Gosselin and Jesse James this year compared to 2010. Of course, they were replaced on the Most Searched Person list by Lindsay Lohan and Megan Fox. (Megan Fox? Really? In 2011?) READ FULL STORY

Selena Gomez talks Justin Bieber, and her inability to get him to pull up his pants

In an interview airing today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Selena Gomez admits dealing with that paternity suit filed against her boyfriend Justin Bieber was crazy “to say the least,” but Ellen doesn’t stop there with the sensitive questions. “I think you have influence, and I think you can tell him to pull his pants up,” DeGeneres says to applause. “I really can’t,” Gomez answers. “I’ve told him I don’t get it.” What does he say then? “He laughs,” Gomez says. Watch a clip below.

Ellen also asks what Selena does to compete with Justin’s grand romantic gestures — like renting out the Staples Center for a dinner date. “My favorite is that mine don’t get out,” she says. (Good answer!) “That’s my favorite. Obviously, that’s very sweet, but I like to do things that are a little bit different, and he always gets mad because everything he does gets out.”  READ FULL STORY

Kathy Griffin channels Jim Carrey, tells Justin Bieber he's 'all the way beautiful' with his 'lesbian bangs'

Taking a page from creepy cute no, definitely creepy Jim Carrey, who professed his love for the much-younger Emma Stone in a video earlier this week, Kathy Griffin has decided to make public her illegal affection for 17-year-old Canadian treasure Justin Bieber. “Justin Bieber,” said the comedienne, “I want you to know that you are all the way beautiful. Even with those, like, lesbian bangs.”

Unfortunately, since Griffin is 29, 39, 49, 50 and has lines “under my ass even,” she cannot marry the teen sensation, in most states, that is. “If I could, I would marry you,” Griffin tells Bieber. “Oh, that’s actually not true. It’s messy, Justin. There’s a distribution of assets. We would just go steady.” (You sure it’s not worth it, Kathy?)

Click the jump to watch the rest of the video, which references a possible camping trip with Bieber and their hypothetical sex life. (“And the sex. Woo! It’s going to be weird!”) Will I be arrested for just writing that? READ FULL STORY

Texas town allows 11-year-old to be mayor for a day; 'tween abuses power and renames main street Justin Bieber Way

If you’ve ever uttered the words, “That’s the Justin Bieber way!” then you’ve probably just done something very Canadian or in the third dimension. Or you live in the small town of Forney, Texas, where they recently allowed a precocious 11-year-old named Caroline Gonzalez to be mayor for a day — an honor she won by winning a contest on Facebook, natch — and renamed their main street Justin Bieber Way. (Ice Town isn’t looking so bad now is it, Ben Wyatt?!)

Gonzalez told local Dallas/Fort Worth affiliate KDAF TV the reasoning behind why she re-named their main street after that ‘tween pop star in particular: “I just really like Justin Bieber and I thought it would be cool if we had a street in our town named after him.” Fair enough. Honestly, if my town had elected me mayor for the day, in addition to making Dunkaroos mandatory school lunch fare, I definitely would have renamed my street New Kids on the Block Block, so I can’t judge.
