Greyson Chance? There's an app for that. (Er, him.)

Greyson-ChanceImage Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR PhotosDo you like Greyson Chance? Well, now there’s an app for that, too. The YouTube sensation and star of Ellen DeGeneres’ eleveneleven record label just released his own iPhone/iPad app on the heels of releasing his debut single. The free app, available on iTunes, offers fans the latest in Greyson news, tweets, videos, and music. So now, the 13-year-old mini-Bieber (who knew that was possible?) is literally at the disposal of your fingertips. Cool? Yes. And for the very affordable price of free, I imagine many tween girls just got an early Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa present.

Are you fans of Greyson Chance, PopWatchers? Will you be downloading his new, free app? And more importantly, would you, like me, be willing to admit that you wish you had your own app? It seems like all the cool kids have them these days. I’m starting to get jealous!

Justin Bieber enters the big leagues, opening Game 3 of the World Series

justin-bieberImage Credit: Gerardo Mora/WireImage.comCanada’s most popular teen import will be joining forces with America’s pastime on Saturday night. Yes, PopWatchers, Justin Bieber will be sharing some of that prime World Series airtime on Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. to premiere his brand-new music video for “Never Say Never” during Game 3’s pre-show footage. (Apparently, his video is a direct response to my belief that Bieber and baseball fever would never mix.) With 14.1 million viewers tuning into Game 2, the video will premiere to quite a large audience — good news for Bieber and his die-hard fans.

Perhaps knowing that this video would receive such a prominent premiere, Bieber has a very visible baseball theme in the video, as it was shot at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. But Bieber’s not picking sides: The heartthrob will be wearing gear from both the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants. If you’re looking for more pop stars at the October classic, Kelly Clarkson will also sing the National Anthem before the game.

Are you excited for the Justin Bieber video premiere tomorrow night, PopWatchers? Or do you just care about the big game?

Little kids re-enact 'Project Runway' and really make it work

I’ve been a huge fan of the kids who re-enact our favorite guilty pleasure reality shows since I saw them take on The Hills. Then they outdid themselves with The Real Housewives of New Jersey. But, thankfully, they’re back, and this time around, they found a more creative over-the-top show to lampoon. Just in time for the Project Runway finale, the kids have taken a stab at the fashion-forward Lifetime series, and they’re playing with all its major stereotypes: the foreign designer with a drawn-on swirly mustache, the ruthless competitor, the over-emotional one, Tim Gunn being vastly unsatisfied with the work ten minutes before the runway, Michael Kors’ point-perfect insults (little Michael Kors is my favorite part of this video), Heidi Klum’s perfect side bangs, an air double kiss that’s done over a foot away from the other person! These kids do indeed make it work. (See the video embedded after the jump.) READ FULL STORY

Nicole Richie blasts paps for 'stalking' daughter. Paging Heather Chandler!

In a fiery blog post addressed to X17, Nicole Richie called the website “irresponsible and repulsive” for routinely sending photographers to sit outside of her daughter Harlow’s preschool. She elaborated: “Here’s a better visual: Pulling up to school and seeing grown men slouched in black windowed cars outside of a preschool, all day. I’m not even there, so you cannot say you are following me as you always do. You are stalking the children. Now how do you feel?”

I’m not a parent, PopWatchers, but I am a human being. And this is pretty sickening. I think it’s about time for Heather Chandler (Sarah’s high school nemesis on Chuck) to pay these photographers a visit, no?

In all seriousness, last month, California passed a new anti-paparazzi law that implemented harsher penalties against celebrity photographers who break traffic laws while working. At the time, Sean Burke of the Paparazzi Reform Initiative told the L.A. Times that the laws were “specifically targeted to increase public safety.” But what about the tiniest public — kids? What do you think should be done?

It’s worth noting that Richie concluded her blog post with, “Consider this a warning.” Paps, see video below. READ FULL STORY

'Jackass' cast and Danny McBride give Justin Bieber's autobigraphy well-deserved dramatic readings

Bieber army, the wait is over! Today you can finally get your hands on Justin Bieber’s autobiography First Step 2 Forever: My Story. (See Tanner Stransky’s summary of the book over on EW’s Shelf Life blog.) Naysayers may point out that The Biebz is just 16 and argue that he hasn’t lived enough life to merit an autobiography, and that may be true, but I imagine that Bieber’s life at 16 was more interesting than my life at 16 (he’s had hit records and has toured the world, I was in suburban high school), so it has to be somewhat of a page turner, right?

In honor of Bieber’s foray into book publishing, Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O of Jackass and Danny McBride of Eastbound & Down lent their comedic talents to dramatic readings of Bieber’s memoir. (See video embedded after the jump.) The Jackass guys took on a tale many fans of Bieber might be curious to learn more about: his first date. And my query as to why he requests so many white t-shirts backstage while on tour has been answered: Bieber spills spaghetti on white t-shirts. READ FULL STORY

Heidi Klum and Brad Garrett to host rival 'Kids Say the Darndest Things'-esque series: Who's the better host?

Heidi-Klum-and-Brad-GarretImage Credit: Janet Mayer/PR Photos; Brian To/FilmMagic.comWith the fall TV season well underway, I never stopped to think that perhaps we were missing something in the real-kids-saying-funny-things department. But apparently both Heidi Klum and Brad Garrett did, as each announced this week that they’d take on separate series in the vein of Kids Say the Darndest Things, a feature on Art Linkletter’s House Party from 1952-69 that Bill Cosby revived in 1998.

Klum, a mother-of-four who will also serve as co-producer of Lifetime‘s tentatively titled, Seriously Funny Kids, has in her favor the paparazzi-proven fact that she can get down with the little ones, not to mention the fact that “auf Wiedersehen” will probably elicit a giggle or two.

Exclusive First Look: Miranda Cosgrove sings on 'iCarly'

Nickelodeon star Miranda Cosgrove may have dropped her debut solo album, Sparks Fly, last April, but you’d never know she could sing by watching her hit show, iCarly – until now. In the October 11 episode, “iDo,” Cosgrove will sing on the show for the first time when an iCarly fan proposes to his girlfriend live on the eponymous web show and the excited couple asks Carly (Cosgrove), Sam (Jennette McCurdy), and Freddie (Nathan Kress) to be in the wedding party.  When the bride-to-be has second thoughts about the wedding, Carly sings one of Cosgrove’s album tracks,   “Shakespeare,” to remind the couple that they are meant to be together.

Check out an exclusive clip of her performance after the jump.


Abigail Breslin adds singing to her resume

She can act. She can sing. What’s next? A line of handbags? Little Miss Sunshine star Abigail Breslin took to the stage last week at the Toronto Film Festival to debut a song from her indie flick Janie Jones. ”Not that I think I’m a great singer or anything, but I do like to sing,” Breslin told EW earlier this month. ”I’ve never really done it before — I’ve only really sung at my church Christmas party.” (Watch video of her performance here.)

Following her musical debut, Breslin told SPIN she had no intentions of pursuing an album at this time, but might someday. Oh, and she’s quite the jokester. When asked if she had Bieber fever she responded with this quip: “No, no. I just went to the doctor and they said I was very healthy.”

What do you think of Breslin’s voice? The 14-year-old is growing up fast. Should she further explore music or just stick to acting? Sound off below.

Girl power! Pixar names first female director

Forget about the boy. Let’s hear it for the girl! Pixar has named its first female director, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Brenda Chapman will direct and write the animated film Brave, due out in June 2012. The story follows Merida, a tomboyish royal with a love of archery. (Sounds like we got ourselves a rival for Robin Hood?) After a fight with her mom, Merida makes a decision with some major repercussions for her father’s kingdom. Reese Witherspoon, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, and Julie Walters are all expected to provide voices for the film.

So congrats to Chapman for nabbing this milestone role. Based on the little information I have about the movie, it looks like it could be a good one. But I’m admittedly a sucker for Pixar films. What do you think, PopWatchers? Will you be looking out for the trailer or passing on Brave?

'Sesame Street' parodies 'True Blood' with 'True Mud'

True Blood seems like an odd pairing with a show that targets preschoolers (and just bowed to pressure from parents who didn’t want their children exposed to Katy Perry’s cleavage), but this Sesame Street parody of the TV-MA HBO series is rated G for everybody. No felt cleavage or nudity (translation: no Jason Stackhouse, sorry). Just a grouch with some stubble who wants true mud and doesn’t understand why a lesson in rhyming makes his waitress hard of hearing. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY
