In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Christian Bale visits the survivors of the Colorado shooting, and LMFAO is accused of firing a bikini girl for being big boned.
HIT: Christian Bale visits the Colorado theatre shooting memorial and meets the survivors
The Batman star and his wife visited the Aurora, Colorado hospital where seven survivors are being treated for their injuries after the mass shooting during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. He asked staff beforehand not to notify the media as he wasn’t there to represent the studio, but instead, himself. Bale reportedly spent two and a half hours at the hospital and also paid a visit to the memorial near the movie theater. It’s nice to see that he went beyond his duty as the star of the franchise, by answering the pleas of the Facebook campaign asking him to visit. He became a real hero to all Batman fans. We can now add Bale to the list of “celebrities who are awesome.”
MISS: Justin Bieber, Drake Bell Twitter drama
Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell tweeted it was ridiculous for artists to have autobiographical films when they haven’t been around for all that long, referring to Katy Perry. Later, he said his account had been hacked and he “… wouldn’t randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol.” Then things went CRAY. Fans tweeted the expected “you’re just jealous” comments, but one also sent him a photo of a knife and he received threats of death by stoning. This is why you don’t upset Beliebers people! They mean business.
HIT: Rupert Grint runs with the Olympic Torch
I hate watching sports on TV, but I love the Olympics. I also love all things British, and that includes Harry Potter. I was super stoked to see Rupert Grint run with the torch and it brought a happy, proud tear to my eye. Now, if the Olympic Committee has Doctor Who’s David Tennant run with the torch like he did in one episode, I may just start bawling. Please higher beings, make it happen.

Justin Bieber has inspired a new book on religion. Bieber is not shy about his strong Christian beliefs, and he continues to be very vocal about his values. This has attracted a new generation of believers.
Like any other product he endorses, Justin Bieber has inspired younger people to explore religion. This group has been nicknamed “Beliebers”.
The upcoming title of the book, Belieber!: Fame, Faith and The Heart of Justin Bieber, explores the entertainer’s religious beliefs, reports Gather. This should provide an in-depth look at a side of Bieber that has yet to be researched.
Pop sensation Justin Bieber showed up at a press conference for Johnny Depp’s latest film Rango, interrupting the proceedings to chat with the actor. Coincidentally, Depp had just finished talking about how his children were huge fans of the pint-sized star who treated the baby Depps to a performance in Miami last December.
“I’m a Belieber,” Depp laughed as he shook hands with the Biebs. Justin returned the compliment, explaining that he was a “huge fan” and wanted to support the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
Hmm, we’re pretty sure Johnny Depp doesn’t need any extra support, Justin! It probably would have felt more sincere if you didn’t edit in a post-video bumper promoting your new 3D movie…
First an appearance on SNL, then The Daily Show, and now random press conferences? The self-promo is getting a little annoying, Biebs!
