Justin Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun are the latest celebrities to join Richard Branson’s star-studded space-bound guest list.
Bieber and Bruan will soon head into the heavens on one of Branson’s Virgin Galactic space ships, according to the Virgin Group founder.
“Great to hear @justinbieber & @scooterbraun are latest @virgingalactic future astronauts. Congrats, see you up there!” Branson wrote Wednesday on Twitter and which Bieber retweeted to his legions of fans.
Going into space would be a dream come true for the Biebs, who tweeted back in February: “I wanna do a concert in space.”
To which NASA replied with: “Maybe we can help you with that.”
Other stars hoping to leave Earth on Virgin Galactic are Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio and, reportedly, Tom Hanks. The space “airline” is currently accepting $250,000 and up deposits to go into the great unknown.
Unfortunately, Lance Bass is not on the exclusive list. Can we make his dreams come true and fund raise the money for him?
Ellen Degeneres is the best when it comes to gently poking the elephant in the room. Case in point: when she gently badgers Mila Kunis about her relationship with Ashton Kutcher.
Watch as Degeneres not-so-subtly brings up Kunis’ latest fling with her former co-star by asking if Kunis still sees her That 70’s Show castmates. Kunis’ reponse: lots of giggles, tears and blushing.
I’ve never used Chatroulette before but I have to say it would be pretty sweet to go online and besiege Ashton Kutcher or Perez Hilton (known users) with burning questions about their famous lives. However, I’m sure the chances of connecting with a celebrity are pretty slim and I’d alternatively stumble upon a bikini-clad dude lip-syncing Carly Rae Jepsen’s catchy lyrics.
SteveKardynal did just that and recorded all the reactions from people he “chatted” with. While some users join in and dance with him, others are completely shocked/horrified/disgusted. Part parody, part PSA, this hilarious video showcases the benefits and risks of Chatroulette. Play at your own risk.
Personally though, I’d love to stumble upon a mustachioed gentleman performing top 40 hits with costume changes.

Drake shows off new tat at OVO Fest
During Drake’s OVO Fest over the weekend, he started off his performance by showing off his new tat “416,” which is most commonly known as Toronto’s area code. If that’s not enough, the rapper also has a tattoo of the CN Tower. You can say he totz loves his city! [drizzysbaby24]
Who says you can’t have too many rings?
I’m obsessed with rings, and every time I log onto tumblr, a little part of me gets extremely jealous of all the pretty jewellery. The new trend that I’m seeing a lot of these days are: turquoise stones and crosses. [moontidess]
Do you #BELIEVE you can dance?
With Justin Bieber’s World Tour starting up in a couple of months, dancers everywhere are now able to take advantage of technology (such as YouTube) to showcase their talent, no matter where they are from. Do you think you have what it takes? Watch here! [neverletbiebsgo]

When I first heard that Ashton Kutcher was going to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in a movie, I really could not register it in my brain. But with new photos spreading around of Kutcher on set of the biopic, his likeness to the inventor is so accurate it’s actually kind of creepy.
Spotted filming at Loyola Marymount University in LA, the actor sported a pair of round-framed spectacles, jeans and Steve’s trademark running shoes.
While I’m not sure if Ashton will grow older to look just like Steve Jobs, the resemblance here is definitely uncanny! (SOURCE)
OMG. I simply cannot.
While I encourage young people to write and think creatively, this seventh grader’s fan fiction involving Ashton Kutcher is a tad bit disturbing.
The story starts innocently with Kutcher riding in a taxi cab. But coming across a middle school dance, he decides to stop by because he was feeling a little bit lonely. There, he meets a girl named “Melessia Bella” (which we can assume is the little girl reading) and there, they flirt and share a dance that GET THIS, did not follow the 12-inch rule set by the school chaperone.
I won’t reveal any more details about this story. However, I can safely say that it gets A LOT more uncomfortable from there.
Oh, to be young and discovering boys.
During the MTV Movie Award’s pre-party last night, Drake’s HILARIOUS episode of Punk’d was aired and let me tell you, it was hands down the best episode yet! Drake was set up to think he was off to meet the Vice President of the United States, while being driven by secret service agents. As they were in a parking garage, things got a little shaky when an earthquake occurred. Now throw in a pregnant woman and a taser. Drake tweeted a little earlier saying, “I’m on Punk’d tonight. I hope you allllllll have a good laugh. I will never forget that day for as long as I live @aplusk.” Guess it’s sure to say Ashton Kutcher still has it. YOLO!

We watch videos of your favourite celebrities before they made it big, including The Wanted, One Direction and Ed Sheeran. We also talk about Ashton Kutcher’s controversial new ad for Popchips and a kid who nearly gets eaten by a lion (but not really).
People are flipping out over Ashton Kutcher’s ad for Popchips, claiming that one of the characters he plays is racist. In the $1.5 million spot Kutcher plays four single guys looking for love, including a bearded redneck, a dreadlocked bohemian and a Karl Lagerfeld look-a-like. But Kutcher is coming under fire for wearing brownface as a mock-Bollywood producer named Raj.
“I’m Raj, I’m a Bollywood producer. I’m looking for the most delicious thing on the planet, like Kardashian hot … I would give that dog a bone,” he says, imitating an Indian accent. As of Thursday morning, the video that featured Raj alone was pulled from the Popchips YouTube channel and the company’s Facebook page.
In one of the direct tweets to Kutcher’s Twitter account, a guy coincidentally named Raj says: “An actual Indian named Raj does not find @aplusk in brown face to be funny.”
New York hip-hop group Das Racist also tweeted about the ad, writing: ”Hey @aplusk, what’s with the racist brownface video you talentless, pretending to care about sex trafficking piece of s–t?”
The line is divided on YouTube as well. While there are plenty of commenters who thought the ad went too far, one of the top rated comments is: “DEFFINITELY not racist. There’s something called “paranoid tolerance”, and this is it.”
Do you think it’s racist or are people being too sensitive?

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Hilary Duff makes us melt by tweeting pictures of her baby boy and Levi Johnson knocks up another girl.
HIT Hilary Duff tweets first pics of baby for free
In an unheard of celebrity move, Hilary Duff decided not to famewhore her adorable baby and tweet photos for free! I always knew you would do the right thing, Lizzie!
MISS Alaska’s Biggest Douche, Levi Johnston, knocks up another girl
Levi Johnston confirmed the news the same day Sarah Palin was on the Today show. Burn! He also apparently plans to cash in by selling interviews. I wish someone would teach him how to put a johnson on his Johnston because he needs to stop reproducing to make money.
HIT Beyonce shares personal photos on tumblr
Beyonce is notoriously private with her personal life but posted some intimate photos on her tumblr blog, which recently went live. It features moments from her honeymoon with Jay Z too.

I’d be pretty sick of relationship talk if I was Rihanna too, so I can’t blame her for ripping into this reporter at a London press conference for Battleship, who decided to ask about her status with Ashton Kutcher. Rihanna can answer a hundred questions about her new movie but if one question comes up about her relationship it’ll be plastered in the next day’s headlines.
The reporter started out on a promising note, telling Rihanna how well she connects with people, but then she strayed into the love minefield: ”You’re so good with connecting with people, that I think that we actually feel we know you. Things are clearly going brilliantly in your career. I just wondered if you are as happy in your private life. Will we be seeing a certain Mr. Kutcher perhaps making a trip over here?”
“Wow, how disappointing was that question,” Rihanna answered, shaking her head. The moderator quickly tried to move on before Rihanna assured the reporter that she’s happy and single. Ouch!
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Charlize Theron hits it out of the park as she jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis with finesse, and Rosie O’Donnell continues to fall from talk show grace, taking it out on her staff.
Jennifer Lawrence is killing The Hunger Games press tour
I’m not going to lie, lady’s an absolute stunner on the red carpet in this Calvin Klein dress. We’ve already raved about her self-deprecating humour, but I still have to ask, can we please be friends?
Charlize Theron jokes about Michael Fassbender’s penis
The Fassbender penis jokes aren’t over, according to Theron. Fassbender and Theron costar in June’s Prometheus, but she couldn’t help but give a shoutout to his full-frontal role in last year’s Shame. “Your penis was a revelation,” she quipped at a Human Rights Campaign gala. “I’m available to work with it any time.” Spoilers, Theron! I haven’t seen Shame yet!
Mila Kunis will be on a Craig Ferguson Scottish special
Kunis was in Glasglow, ready to be sucked into the Scottish Vacuum of Charm. She’ll be on a special episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. She ranks fourth on my list of favourite guests with her comedic skills. It’s not low considering she’s right under Any Scottish Guest, Kristen Bell, and any cast member of Doctor Who.
Ray J is waiting to sell his sex tapes with Whitney Houston
A source told Star that Brandy’s little brother is just waiting to sell the many sex tapes he made with Whitney but Ray J denied the rumours to TMZ. I wish we could just push him into obscurity so I can continue to remember Houston as the amazing performer she was, not the dirtbags she was with. Remember, this is the guy that also made a sex tape with Kim Kardashian…
Ashton Kutcher first celebrity in space
He’ll be paying $200,000 for the trip into space with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic, a.k.a. Rich People Vacations. While he gears up to leave Earth (yay!) and ruin the fantasy of The Great Beyond for sci-fi nerds everywhere (BOO!), I’ll be trying to twitter-trend #LanceBassinSpace. If Kutcher can do it, why can’t he?
Rosie O’Donnell is a TV tyrant
The Rosie Show, which airs on OWN, is tanking and Rosie’s taking it all out on the staff. The staff, who used to work for the great Oprah herself, are obviously not pleased. Instead of getting free cars, they’re being subjected to Rosie’s angry quacking.
I was right to be skeptical of Justin Bieber’s supposed $10.8 million real estate offer in Los Angeles the other day. TMZ is now reporting that although the home is high on Bieber’s list, it’s not even a forerunner.
Also, Ashton Kutcher, who is currently renting the home might want to put an offer on it.
Oh, to be 18 and buying your first 8-digit home again, right?
Ashton Kutcher may have finally shed that awful beard of his but he’s not quite ready to remove his wedding ring.
A few months since Demi Moore announced she’s filing for divorce, Ashton Kutcher was seen at a panel for his show “Two and a Half Men” still wearing his ring. The photo above comes from New York Daily News.
Does this mean he’s fighting for his marriage? Demi seems to have moved on already, other than the fact that she has not changed her Twitter name from @mrskutcher.
Ashton said at the panel that he shaved for his show and admits he’s not officially on board for the next season of “The and a Half Men” but he definitely wants to be if he and CBS can work something out.
Like every other year before, 2011 had a roster of idiotic celebrity moments. A lot of stories that broke this year had us scratching our heads and rolling our eyes as we begged “what the hell is going on?” We have counted down the ten craziest pop culture stories that deserve a major facepalm.
10. The show “Playboy Club” on NBC
This cheesy and poorly acted show starring Amber Heard and Dean Cain didn’t last more than three or so episodes on NBC. Thank God!
9. Actress sues IMDB over age
An actress going by the name “Jane Doe” sued internet movie database IMDB and its parent company Amazon.com for $1 million over revealing her real age (40). She claims her age is a liability in Hollywood (no kidding!).
8. Alec Baldwin kicked off plane over Words With Friends
The veteran actor of “30 Rock” says he was booted from an American Airlines flight last month because he refused to stop playing Words With Friends on his phone. The airline then went on to slam the actor in many reports. AA now knows the title for Stupidest Reason to Kick Somebody Off a Plane. Congratulations!
Last night’s Saturday Night Live previewed a clip from the upcoming film from the makers of ‘Valentine’s Day’ and ‘New Year’s Eve’… it’s ‘Apocalypse’.
It stars “literally thousands” of your favourite celebrities, from Drew Barymore (Kristin Wiig) to Penny Marshall (Fred Armisen) to Christina Aguilera (Katy Perry) – even “that kid from Modern Family” (Bobby Moynihan). “It’s love… at last sight” in this hilarious parody of over-indulgent saga of date movies. It was one of the highlights of last night’s Katy Perry-hosted show.
Though didn’t Funny or Die do this earlier in the week with ‘Christmas Day’?
Hot off his split from wife Demi Moore, Ashton Kutcher steps out on the red carpet with a nice suit, a smile and a hot, younger co-star.
While many rumour are swirling of Demi allegedly already moving on with another man, Ashton’s not afraid to be seem flirting with “New Year’s Eve” costar Lea Michele.
The “Glee” actress was rocking a very low cut metallic dress and a whole lot of double sided tape. Is it just me or does she look like Demi Moore but only 30 years younger? I’m just thankful that Ashton finally got rid of that half-assed beard.
Do the two stars, who played each others love interests in the film, look like they’re more than friends at the premiere? Are they pulling a Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson and only pretending to go out so they can promote the movie? Check out all the photos from the saucy red carpet at Oh No They Didn’t.
There’s that old saying “the show must go on” and it has, as Ashton Kutcher’s been spotted back on the set of his new show, “Two and a Half Men”. Demi, on the other hand, has been incognito since the divorce announcement.
The Daily Mail UK is now reporting Demi’s out and about with Hollywood florist, Eric Buterbaugh, over the weekend. I’m sure they were just discussing flowers (for a a divorce party?) because I highly doubt the 49-year-old actress is ready to date again.
Demi filed for divorce from the former “Punk’d” host two weeks ago. She was Mrs. Kutcher for six years. According to math and personal experience, it takes a woman way, way longer than 14 days to fully get over a breakup like that.
Of course, everyone’s secretly dying to know who the two end up falling in love with next, but the time isn’t now. Ashton may have cheated on Demi but Demi’s a way more classy chick and she doesn’t dare stoop to his level. Rebounding isn’t a good look on her.
While we thank celebs for all the ridiculous news they make sites like andPOP write about, we hope said celebs are taking a moment today to ask themselves that they’re grateful for. Here’s what we think some celebrities should be thankful for on this American holiday.
Lindsay Lohan: Thankful for her lawyers. Without them, she’d be in prison still, eating stuffing from something that’s not a Turkey.
Mariah Yeater: Thankful for her baby. Because at least she’ll have somebody that actually values her now.
Kim Kardashian: Thankful for her big ass. At least next time she gets knocked down by the media, she’ll have a nice landing.
Kate Gosselin: Thankful for Spanx. And condoms.
Ashton Kutcher: Thankful that razors exist. Now he can shave his poor excuse of a beard.
Chris Brown: Thankful for sunshine and rainbows. No, actually, he’d want to punch that too.
Less than a week after Demi announced her seperation from young hubby Ashton Kutcher, the two were spotted at a friends house in Beverely Hills the other day.
The Hollywood Life is reporting the once happy couple went over for an hour long counselling session to work out their issues. Us Magazine says the house the two arrived at seperately is reffered to as a “Kabbalah Home” (whatever that means).
This is the first time the two have me up since the fallout, but maybe this wont be the last. The fact that Demi and Ashton agreed to counselling shows the two want to work out their problems in order to remain friends in the future. It’s pretty mature of them to do that, if you ask me.
