Justin Bieber covered “Cry Me A River” at a Boston concert on Saturday night — an interesting choice considering he just broke up with Selena Gomez. Bieber has sung the song in the past, but not since 2008. We may be reading too much into it but it seems like a perfectly timed nod to the split.
Bieber hasn’t spoken publicly about the breakup (give the guy some time!) and was vague in an interview with radio host John Garabedian that same day. When asked about the split he replied: ”I don’t know what’s going on in my life . . . To even assess that it doesn’t make sense ’cause I have not made any comment.”
“Cry Me A River” was originally recorded by Justin Timberlake in 2002 to chronicle his failed relationship with Britney Spears. Perhaps we can expect a new breakup anthem in the future?
Watch it here
It’s happened folks. Your fave power couple has broken up.
According to E! News, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez ended their relationship a week ago due to distance and conflicting schedules.
Eighteen-year-old Bieber is touring to promote his latest album Believe, while 20-year-old Gomez is filming a “Wizards of Waverly Place” reunion for the Disney Channel called “The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex.”
Gomez and Bieber, have been dating for over a year since going public with their romance in February 2011 when they attended the Vanity Fair Oscar party together.
While the split may seem devastating to fans, Bieber appears to be OK (well, at least in public). On the red carpet of Wednesday’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show, he was spotted saying, “I’d rather be here than anywhere in the world.”
I can’t help but feel a little sad that Justin and Selena are no more. I actually thought they were adorable.
But while I hope the two can at least stay friends, I know a lot of girls’ hearts just started pounding a lot faster. Now that the Biebs is back on the market, the prospects of being with him have just gotten a lot bigger!!
Never say never, ladies.
Your dreams can come true.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, President Barack Obama gets re-elected, Donald Trump is a sore loser, and One Direction wear football uniforms.
HIT: President Barack Obama gets re-elected
Let’s see: I’m a Canadian. I like my healthcare. I’m also a woman so I like my rights. I also love seeing people in love get their happy ending, whether they’re straight, gay queer, etc. So obviously, I’m happy that Obama won and those dickwads (a.k.a. Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock) who have absolutely no idea what rape is didn’t. Oh, I might as well mention that a very large group of diverse women (including an Asian-American and an openly gay politician) will be in the senate next year. To quote Tina Fey, “bitches get stuff done.”
MISS: Donald Trump’s Twitter rant post-election results
There was no one more upset than Donald Trump last night after all the news outlets (including Fox News) called the election in favour of Obama. He has since deleted most of the tweets, but it doesn’t matter because, to quote NBC anchor Brian Williams, Trump “has driven well past the last exit to relevance.” Trump is too short-sighted, stubborn and maybe even xenophobic to even contemplate bi-partisanship and it’s people like him who are splitting America apart. He can rant and rave all he wants, but he has to pull a Bill Clinton by backing his claims with facts before I take heed of his garbage.
HIT: One Direction in (American) football Uniforms
Sorry for the political bits. Apparently, the American political world morphes into the entertainment world during the last days of the election (Canadian elections aren’t as entertaining. Interesting, yes, but not entertaining). To apologize, here’s a photo of One Direction in tight American football uniforms. You are welcomed.

Dear Gentlemen of the World,
We know how heart-in-your-toes scary it can be when you’re dying to ask out that pretty girl in your biology class — especially if you’re plagued with foot-in-mouth disease. That’s why we made it easy for you with this handy dating guide featuring 15 pickup lines courtesy of Justin Bieber lyrics. He nabbed Spring Breakers’ Selena Gomez and has millions of Beliebers vying for his heart, so he must be doing something right… right?
We noted the exact moments when these lyrics could help you score or get you out of awkward situations. Please keep in mind this guide is wholly unscientific, unproven and might admittedly HURT your chances of dating someone.
Not a Dating Expert
“Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t/ I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe.”
“I can be a gentleman (gentleman), anything you want/ If I was your boyfriend (boyfriend), I’d never let you go, never let you go.”
When to use them: These lyrics are most effective during that pre-stage dating ritual known as courtship. You’re providing her with hypothetical examples of how dating you will benefit her — once she gets the visual, there’s no going back. Moreover, the Buzz Lightyear reference will immediately blast her with nostalgia, ensuring she associates you with good thoughts.
Song: ”One Less Lonely Girl” and “Somebody to Love”
“Don’t need these other pretty faces like I need you/ And when you’re mine, in the world/ There’s gonna be one less lonely girl.”
“Christmas wasn’t merry, 14th of February not one of them spent with you.”
“Step to the beat of my heart/ I don’t need a whole lot/ But for you I admit I/ I’d rather give you the world/ Or we can share mine/ I know I won’t be the first one/ giving you all this attention/ Baby listen/ I just need somebody to love.”
When to use them: After lightheartedly listing off all the amazing things you’d do if you were her boyfriend, make known your actions to hurdle this wish into reality. The benefits go both ways: you’d both be less lonely.
Song: “First Dance”
“Only if you give, give your first dance to me/ Girl, I promise I’ll be gentle/ I know we gotta do it slowly/ If you give (give it), give the first dance to me (give it)/ I’m gon’ cherish every moment/ ’cause it only happens once, once in a lifetime”

Naive Justin Bieber fans could have been down a head of hair after anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by Entertainment Tonight that Justin Bieber was diagnosed with leukaemia. Tweets from celebrities seemed to confirm the news:
The thing is, Bieber was never diagnosed with cancer (thankfully) and Entertainment Tonight NEVER posted that tweet. Following the “news,” so-called Beliebers began posting photos and videos of themselves with their heads shaved with the hashtag #BaldForBieber. Turns out, most of them were just posers in on the prank.
It’s a despicable prank to direct at teen girls and if you had to have a license to be on the Internet I’d say REVOKE THAT SH*T. Making people believe that someone — anyone — has cancer, is not funny.
These days, you never know what that 4Chan bunch will do. They’ve messed with Taylor Swift and Mountain Dew, among others. Someone who was in on the joke stepped at the beginning, with a firsthand account:
This is actually not true at all. I was there when we started this shit. Somebody made a few twitter accounts, we edited Wikipedia, we spammed chat rooms, and we even posted here on Reddit (but it was deleted for lack of evidence). Somebody made a few fake news posts too which were convincing but without a link it wasn’t enough. The girls you are seeing are actually sisters/girlfriends of a few /b/tards that did this to try and convince other girls to do it. I’m trying to find one of the YouTube videos of some dude’s sister fake crying but I can’t seem to find it at the moment. [Gawker]
Yikes!! The pranksters even set up a fake website with one of the videos below. Be careful what you read online everyone, it’s a wild, wild world out there.

When I was in second grade the video for “Quit Playin’ Games” by The Backstreet Boys was released, marking the precise moment when my fangirl days started. Now when I see the new generation of fangirls and fanboys, I can’t help but feel nostalgic, recalling fond memories of buying magazines whenever my favourite group was on the cover, collecting clippings of EVERY photo and interview, sending fan mail to the addresses listed and waiting for that autographed poster that never came (I’m looking at you BSB). And yes, I had to deal with the ridicule from those who just didn’t get it.
How do you know when you’ve crossed onto fangirl territory? Here are the top five signs, from a tried and true fangirl:
1. Your bedroom wall is a shrine
You’ve collected every over-sized poster from magazines, turning your bedroom walls from paint to One Direction wallpaper. Your parents admitted they almost feel uncomfortable in your room when Harry’s looking at you like that. Yes, my parents did actually tell me something similar…
2. You know every lyric and will sing their songs anywhere
You get excited everytime you hear your tune playing, regardless of where you are at any moment. For example, if your in the vegetable aisle at the grocery store and 1D’s “One Thing” starts playing, you immediately start singing and dancing. Not lying, this tends to still happen to me whenever I hear “Backstreet’s Back.”
3. You shed a lot of tears for them
You start a concert all like: “Yeah I’m cool and collected,” until they finally hit the stage and you begin hysterically sobbing and screaming, stating “I’m just so happy!” whilst wiping tears.
4. You sleep with them Read more…
BenDeLeCreme produced a creepy cover of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” using references to horror films like Psycho, The Human Centipede and Misery. The Dr. Frank-N-Furter doppelgänger performs the dance number with bejeweled gents, recreating cult horror scenes.
This is one of the creepiest versions of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” you’ll ever hear. Well, it’s not as creepy as Laina, the Overly Attached Girlfriend‘s version, but it comes pretty close. [via Alex Berry]
Sooo the room may not have exploded, but Oprah + Justin Bieber = sizzling details about young love. When the two got together to chat for an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, JBiebs talked about his girlfriend Selena Gomez. According to Justin, although it’s hard for him and his gf to travel together with screaming fans around, he tries to be around Selena whenever he can. How thoughtful.
As a side note, the video also shows Oprah and Justin enjoying a nice candle lit dinner together, followed by a shopping trip. The room may not have exploded, but my mind just did.

I was pretty certain if you put Justin Bieber and Oprah in the same room, it wouldn’t be able to contain their awesomeness and would inevitably self detonate. The theory was first tested back in 2010 when Justin Bieber went on the Oprah show, but so much time has passed and more awesomeness has been achieved. I wasn’t sure what would happen, but luckily I was wrong.
Bieber tweeted this photo of himself and the talk show host today with the caption: “Me and @Oprah just swaggin it out.”
The two have been “swaggin it out” over the past couple days, as OWN is airing a special backstage look at his Believe tour on Nov. 25. The episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will also include an in-depth interview.
Yesterday, Oprah went to Justin’s Chicago concert where she revelled at the crying fans and took a backstage tour:
Oprah tweeted after the show: “BELIEVE concert so impressive. Thanks for a SUPER FUN nite Can’t wait to talk to you tomorrow!”
Another friendly face got in on the action and called Oprah his boo. Scooter Braun shared this photo and later tweeted: “sitting here thinking how proud i am of
@justinbieber and how he carried himself in that interview with @oprah - cant wait for u all to see.”

After a huge social media campaign called Healing Hailey, his four-year-old superfan got a private meeting with her favourite singer, Justin Bieber. She got to spend five minutes with the heartthrob backstage at his Milwaukee concert on Sunday night.
Hailey’s parents started the campaign on Twitter and Facebook after their daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor in August. An inspiring video featured a bunch of high school students and teachers sharing motivational messages on signs.
Although she had to get clearance from her doctors to attend the concert, she tweeted afterwards “Dreams come true #believe.”
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are slated to host the Golden Globes and Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beast” video looks like “Aaron’s Party.”
HIT: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey to host the Golden Globes
Unlike most celebrities at the Golden Globes, I liked Ricky Gervais and his snarky humour just fine but these two SNL alums can make do the ugly laugh/cry at any moment. Just so we’re clear, this is how I feel about the golden duo hosting the Globes in January: 1) CRYING, 2) ALL THE FEELS, and 3) FOUR FOR YOU GLEN COCO. YOU GO, GLEN COCO. Need I say more?
MISS: Aaron Carter thinks Justin Bieber copied him
On Monday, former teen star Aaron Carter tweeted, “Justin Bieber’s new video reminds me of my video for Aaron’s Party.” Carter must be slightly delusional if he thinks Justin Bieber’s video for “Beauty and the Beat” is a rip-off. If so, he might as well add the likes of Janet Jackson, Katy Perry and any other artist who’s done a house party video. Carter’s not as original as he would like us to believe or else he’d still be famous.
HIT: Megan Fox had her baby weeks ago
Megan Fox gave birth to her son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th which was weeks ago. According to her Facebook page, she wanted to announce the news herself instead of someone leaking it. ”…He is healthy, happy, and perfect,” she wrote. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love.” The obligatory congratulations goes out to the happy couple and their beautiful bundle of joy as well as an additional pat on the back for keeping it a secret for so long. I think that a) people must not really care about Megan Fox anymore if no one is stalking her, or b) she gave birth in the middle of California desert to avoid the paparazzi.

Mission of the day: Get Justin Bieber to visit a fan named Hailey Roser. The four-year-old was recently diagnosed with brain cancer and all she asks is to meet her favourite singer. To help her out, students and teachers from Holmen High School filmed a touching music video message to the singer, inviting him to visit her in Wisconsin.
The students share their message by holding up inspiring signs for Hailey in different parts of the school such as “be a Fighter” and “you are beautiful.” Hailey also makes a cameo in the end, with her swag Justin Bieber T-shirt, telling the popstar that she loves him and wants to meet him.
We have to make this happen people!!
Water park + Justin Bieber = Best music video ever?
After watching Justin Bieber’s new music video for “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, I couldn’t help but watch it over and over again! Seems like it payed off because yesterday VEVO tweeted: “24hr Record shattered w/ 10.6M VIEWS! No wonder @justinbieber is the biggest artist in the world!” [fuckyesjustinbieber]
My laptop is pretty much like my child. I use it on a daily basis and with that being said, I want to glitz it up with coloured keys. Has anyone else tried it? [italianluxury]
The boys are back on a whole new level
The Wanted released their new action packed video for “I Found You” and things get a little steamy for Nathan Sykes. The youngest member of the band, often refereed to as “Baby Nath” isn’t much of a baby anymore..and we like it. [madefornath]
But I can’t have just one…
Eekkk, Halloween is two weeks away, but you’ll definitely be seeing all kinds of chocolate, candy and decorations on the shelves. Just remember to buy an extra box and keep a hidden stash for all your cravings. [fallinlovewiththeseasons]

Sorry ladies! Unfortunately, “Jerry” does not make an appearance in the “personal” footage that was “stolen” from Justin Bieber. I’m using quotation marks because it turns out all the drama was actually a well executed stunt from Bieber incorporated. The good news is, Beliebers can rest easy knowing that Justin was never in any real danger of being exposed or humiliated. Furthermore, we got a new music video that’s highly innovative. The new video for ‘Beauty and The Beat’ features Nicki Minaj and was entirely written, directed and shot by Justin. So in the end everyone wins because if someone had actually stolen something from Bieber they would probably be executed by now.
Soo many good tweets from The Wanted as they were on set yesterday filming their brand new video for “I Found You,” and torturing us with behind the scenes pics of them looking smoking HAWT. Check out Nathan above and Max with a dog named Boris below (Boris seems to be an integral part of the video). The guys look pretty bundled up and dapper in this video, though we’re wondering why Tom has a gash on his cheek in one of the photos. That guy is certainly the trouble maker in the group. And I like it. (Check for more photos after the jump.)
The main reason I follow Justin Bieber on Twitter is so I can get MIND BLOWING tweets like the one above. The second reason I follow him is so I can gawk at awesome half-naked photos and talk about them with my friends over coffee like: “OMG did you see that Instagram photo of JB?” The THIRD reason I follow him is for funny videos of adults trying to understand Bieber like this:
Apparently somewhere along the line, Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Celine Dion and Avril Lavigne are all related, which isn’t all that shocking considering:
1. Three of them are from Ontario and all of them are from Canada.
2. At some point or another ALL OF US ARE RELATED.
The whole scheme is clearly a blatant marketing campaign by Ancestry.com to amp up users but it’s admittedly a pretty smart one. The Canadian heritage archive told People the family links back to the early settlers of Canada’s Quebec province. Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed; he and Dion are 10th cousins three times removed; and he and Lavigne are 12th cousins.
If you really think about it though we’re all related in some way or another. So the whole message of this project and my article specifically is that you can be related to any celebrity you like. (You could totally go to a party and be all “Kanye and I are LITERALLY bros.”) I’m not thinking about it too much when it comes to Ryan Gosling though — being related to him puts a damper on our imminent relationship.
Anyway, thanks Ancestry.com for pointing out something that’s not very shocking but still mildly interesting for some reason.
