In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Justin Bieber graduates high school to make his mama proud, and John Travolta gets sued for touching people in naughty places.
HIT: The Biebs graduates high school
While he told the The Telegraph he’s not interested in reading and writing, Bieber finished high school for his mom. The Biebs continues to make his mama proud as he plans to release his next single, “Turn to You,” on Friday just in time for the Mother’s Day weekend. He said, via twitter, that all proceeds will go toward single moms. Queue the “awwww…” track here.
MISS: Amber Riley leaving Glee
I don’t even like Glee, but I’ll be sad to see Riley go. Aside from Chris Colfer, Darren Criss (AVPM fan 4ever) and Riley, I would really love to punch every character on the show in the face. Riley’s covers are one of Glee’s very few redeeming factors. No one can pull of an Adele cover like she can.

According to TMZ, yesterday Oksana Grigorieva appeared in court and under oath swore that Mel Gibson beat her during sex. Apparently, battery is the only way Gibson could get arroused.
My question is, why now? Grigorieva almost seems as crazy as Gibson. Why does she choose to make this information public now? This case/trial has been going on for months. Every week the public is appalled by some new piece of information. Are we shocked? Well, we are talking about MEL GIBSON here, nothing about him is really that shocking anymore.
The odd thing about this new allegation is that Grigorieva never spoke once about this sexual assault in the multiple interviews with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Clearly she is really trying to take Gibson down.
I’m all for this public denouncement of Gibson, but you have to wonder why Grigorieva would enter into a relationship with him in the first place?
So we have Mel Gibson the anti-semite, and now maybe the sadomasochist? Maybe he’s just a sadist. Surely, Grigorieva will give us some new news next week.
Ben Roethlisberger, quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, has been sued by Andrea McNulty for allegedly sexually assaulting her in July 2008, reports TMZ. The two met when McNulty worked at Harrah’s in Lake Tahoe, where Roethlisberger stayed several times for golf tournaments. McNulty claims the NFL player lured her back to his hotel room where he forced her to have sex with him. He was in Nevada at the time for a celebrity golf tournament, and sources close to the 2009 Superbowl champion say the two did have a sexual relationship at the time, but it was purely consensual.
