Is Justin Bieber Cheating on Selena Gomez?

Is JUSTIN BIEBER cheating on SELENA GOMEZ? That's what people started asking yesterday when pictures surfaced of Justin and a MYSTERY BLONDE having dinner in London on Monday night. --It doesn't help that in some of the photos, Justin is flipping a DOUBLE BIRD to the cameraman taking his picture. (--Here are the pics.) (The Superficial)

Justin Bieber Says He'll Take a Paternity Test:

Nothing has been scheduled yet, but JUSTIN BIEBER says he WILL take a paternity test to prove he's not the father of that chick Mariah Yeater's baby. --He says, quote, "All this stuff is dealt with by my legal team. But if they want me to then I will." --He also says SELENA GOMEZ is cool about this . . . quote, "Like me she just ignores things. --"She had to get used to some pretty horrible stuff being said about her on twitter when we first got together, and since then she has just learned to ignore all the rubbish that is written about us." (--Meanwhile, someone made what I guess we can describe as a Justin Bieber MEATLOAF . . . complete with bacon for hair. It's disturbing and beautiful at the same time. Check it out here.) (D-Listed)

Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner Have Called Off Their Engagement:

HEATHER LOCKLEAR and boyfriend JACK WAGNER have broken off their engagement. And that's all we know at this point.

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Were in Puerto Rico Last Week . . . Working on Their Talent Show:

JENNIFER LOPEZ and MARC ANTHONY were together in Puerto Rico last week . . . but NOT for romantic reasons. --As you may recall, they're doing a Latin talent competition show called "Q'Viva!", and last Tuesday night they were watching auditions together. A source says they, quote, "seemed like they were having fun together." (--Here are some pics.) (TMZ) (--Obviously, Jennifer and Marc set up this show when they were still married . . . and now they're stuck working together.)

Kim Kardashian's Butt Might Be Fake . . . And There's a Petition to Get the Kardashian's Off TV:

Don't be surprised if the media starts tossing around the phrase "Booty-gate" . . . thanks to a report in the "National Enquirer" that KIM KARDASHIAN'S butt is FAKE. --Even though Kim had X-rays this summer to prove she's implant free, she has OTHER secrets. KRIS HUMPHRIES knows them, and he's threatening to reveal them to the world. (--If this is true, too late. Sorry, Kris.) --So how does Kim get those curves? A source says, quote, "She uses booty pads, Spanx and other things to enhance it. When she takes off the Spanx, the pads and everything else, it's not the same. --"Kris knows what the real thing looks like because he's recorded it on his cell phone camera." --The "Enquirer" even suggests that this controversy is what prompted Kim to cut her Australian business trip short and fly to Minnesota to meet with Kris face-to-face. --The source says, quote, "Kim is all about creating illusion. Having Kris spill the beans about how she really maintains her world-famous butt would be devastating to her." --Meanwhile . . . There's an online petition asking E! to take "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" off the air. As of last night, it has almost 30,000 signatures. (--You can see it . . . and sign it . . . at

And Now . . . Some Funny Quotes from Kim Kardashian Just Before She Filed for Divorce:

Just weeks before she filed for divorce, KIM KARDASHIAN sat down for an interview with "Marie Claire" magazine. And some of what she said is funny now, in light of the fact that her marriage stalled out at a whopping 72 days. --Addressing the fact that she and KRIS HUMPHRIES got married less than a year after they met she said, quote, "We felt like, 'Why wait?' It's fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you." --She added, quote, "I feel like where we're at right now is the best time in my life."

--As you may know, this is Kim's SECOND brief marriage. In 2000, when she was only 19 years old, she married a music producer named Damon Thomas. --But she told the magazine she didn't KNOW HERSELF at the time, and she "learned so much" from the relationship, like, quote, "who I wanted to be, who I never wanted to be." --She added, quote, "It definitely taught me what being a wife is all about. I think it means taking care of each other's needs and being there for someone unconditionally." --And the hits just keep on coming: Kim's sisters weren't really big fans of Kris in the beginning. But Kim explained to "Marie Claire" why she stuck by him. --She said, quote, "I'm not worried about him at all. We have a lot of trust, and I don't think either of us would do anything to break that. It makes life so easy. He's such a good guy; he is so down-to-earth, and it's such a reality check." --Kim also explained why she decided to televise her wedding . . . quote, "I felt like if I didn't show the wedding, it would be upsetting for people who have taken this journey with me." --She added, quote, "[Public interest] will all die down eventually. We get that. --"We've had so much fun, and hopefully the decisions we're making now will set us up so we have successful companies that are prospering long beyond the reality show."

Kim Kardashian's Lawyer Says Her Marriage Wasn't a Sham:

KIM KARDASHIAN'S divorce lawyer says that Kim's marriage to KRIS HUMPHRIES was NOT a sham. Then again, what else is she gonna say, right? --Attorney Laura Wasser says, quote, "Our office did indeed negotiate and prepare a prenup for Ms. Kardashian. Given what I know regarding that document, it is not plausible that this marriage was a sham." --Wasser adds that negotiations were "prolonged" and dealt with financial issues that, quote, "go well into the future." That supposedly PROVES that Kim expected it to last. (--Although it could ALSO mean she took one small, extra step to make it LOOK like she expected it to last. Did this Wasser chick actually think nobody would assume THAT?) --TMZ says the prenup was 30 pages long, and covered pretty much every financial detail possible. (--One last note: The "Hollywood Reporter" says Kim's divorce has been good for the various entertainment news shows.) (--"Access Hollywood", "Entertainment Tonight", "Extra", "Inside Edition" and "TMZ" have all seen a boost in the ratings since Kim filed her papers on Halloween.)

Guess What? Brad Pitt Really Doesn't Necessarily Plan on Retiring from Acting in Three Years:

I just have other interests and I do quite enjoy the production side." --Brad also said he doesn't mind getting older. (--He's 47 now, so he'll be 50 at the end of his flexible retirement timeline.) --He said, quote, "Me, personally I like aging. With age comes wisdom and I have said it before and I say it again, I will take wisdom over youth any day. --"I think certainly, being a father has changed everything for me as far as perspective and interest, taking care of myself and wanting to be around for them." (--Here's video of Brad's denial.)

In "50 / 50", JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT plays a young man who's diagnosed with cancer. -His performance inspired Lindsey Miller, a 26-year-old grad student from Los Angeles who was diagnosed with pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer in 2010. So she posted a YouTube video asking him on a date. (--Check it out here.) --She says, quote, "Even though I look healthy, dating has been a little difficult, because I'm not sure how to explain what I'm going through. --"But after a year of living with this I've decided to get back on the dating scene and I'd like my first date to be with you. --"Maybe you could call it my Make-A-Wish, but let's not be overdramatic. Just a cup of coffee with you would make me happy." --Lindsey also has a blog about living with cancer, on which she writes, quote, "After seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance and seeing / reading some of his subsequent interviews about the film I thought, 'This guy gets it. And he's cute. I wonder if I could ever run into him somewhere.' --"But even though I live in LA, it seems impossible to find him." (--Check out her blog here.)

Turns out it was a gift from ROBERT DE NIRO. Even so, Bradley GAVE HIM THE COAT OFF HIS BACK.

Paris Hilton Bought Filet Mignon for a Starving Dog:

Conrad Murray Wasn't Mentally Prepared for Prison:

If you're a MICHAEL JACKSON fan, consider this your feel-good story of the day: CONRAD MURRAY is suffering behind bars. And this comes directly from his own team. --His rep says, quote, "He didn't think he would be found guilty. He didn't mentally prepare himself. He is a very positive person and he didn't prepare for this outcome. When someone isn't prepared, it hits them doubly hard." --An anonymous source says Murray has been telling friends and family he wants to KILL HIMSELF. --As a result of his not being "mentally prepared", Murray is in the jail's medical ward, rather than an actual cell. He'll remain in custody until his sentencing on November 29th.

Behold: The Latest Rebecca Black Single "Person of Interest":

Sad to say, it appears that REBECCA BLACK may be on her way to becoming a one-hit wonder. --Rebecca has just released her third single. It's called "Person of Interest". (--The audio is up on Rebecca's VEVO . . . or you can buy it on iTunes for $1.69.) --The track uses "CSI"-like, crime scene references as a metaphor for someone catching her eye on the dance floor.

--The song opens with the lyrics:

"When I talk, you listen, I like that.
When you listen, you smile, and I like that.
Why you lookin' lookin' at me just like that?
I like that. I like that.

"There's a crime scene on the dance floor.
Ring the alarm.
Police tape on the front door.
And you are . . . a person of interest."

--It's better than her second song, "My Moment" . . . but it's nowhere near as awesome and fun as "Friday". And it no longer seems possible that she'll ever replicate that success. --That being said, Rebecca hasn't released a video for "Person of Interest" yet . . . although she says it's "coming soon." And the videos are what MADE "Friday", and BURIED "My Moment". But honestly, the song itself shouldn't leave you optimistic.'s "10 Slammin' Songs About Basketball" List:

Alice Cooper's Restaurant Could Lose $500,000 If There's Not an NBA Season:

England's Download Festival . . . so we really don't know how extensively they're planning on touring.)

Congress Says Pizza is Still a Vegetable?

One day, when historians look back on how everyone in this country became deliciously chubby, they'll point to this story. Congress says that pizza counts as a vegetable. --Here's what's going on. The USDA has been trying to change the requirements for schools to get federal subsidies on their lunches. And that would include requiring kids to eat more healthy vegetables. --Under their proposal, schools would have to limit potatoes . . . so they couldn't serve FRIES five days a week and call them vegetables. --And yes, having two tablespoons of tomato paste on a pizza also wouldn't count as a vegetable anymore. It does right now. --The companies that make frozen pizzas for schools, and the salt and potato industries, didn't want those changes to happen. And some Republicans agreed, saying that the government shouldn't regulate what kids eat. --So both the House and Senate rejected the USDA's proposal, and came up with an alternative that basically keeps everything the same as it is now. Pizza's a vegetable, French fries are vegetables, let it ride. --Amy Dawson Taggart is the director of a nonprofit called Mission: Readiness . . . they say that poor nutrition in school lunches actually weakens the country because obesity is the TOP reason people are disqualified from military service. --Quote, "We are outraged that Congress is seriously considering language that would effectively categorize pizza as a vegetable . . . it doesn't take an advanced degree in nutrition to call this a national disgrace."

Early Sunday morning, 26-year-old Amber Harvey of Elkhart, Indiana was hungry.

So Amber decided to drive her chair through the line and order. --Unfortunately for her, Taco Bell's policy prohibits the employees from serving someone who's not in a vehicle.

A Drunk Driver Crashed Into a Helicopter at a Traffic Accident . . . Then Asked Why It Was Flying So Low:

A pair of drunk-driving accidents on Sunday morning injured three people, killed another, and produced one of the DUMBEST statements we've ever heard from a drunk driver. --Accident number one took place at 1:30 A.M. on Sunday morning outside of Palestine, Texas.

They start talking about racism at :45, and talk about the meltdown at 2:01. And Foxx's Downey Jr. impression at 3:36 is solid.) (--WARNING: This video includes a lot of profanity, including the F-word.)

#2.) Check Out the "Harmonic Kiss" . . . and a Guy Tricking Hooters Girls Into Kissing Him on the Lips:

An old YouTube video is suddenly popping up everywhere. It's a man and a woman doing something they call the "Harmonic Kiss." And it's RIDICULOUS. --You just have to see it, but the woman starts by holding a single note with her voice. Then the guy opens his mouth, leans in, and lets the sound echo in HIS mouth. --While you're at it, check out a video on called, "Hooters Kiss." Some guy who chugs beer insanely fast got waitresses at Hooters to give him a kiss on the cheek if he could finish a beer in two or three seconds. --Then when they go to kiss him, he does the trick where he turns his head and gets them on the LIPS. You kind of expect him to get slapped in the face, but somehow he gets away with it . . . with five different girls. (--WARNING: The Hooters video includes the B-word.)

#3.) And Now . . . Famous Album Covers Come to Life, and Battle to the Death:

If you've never seen it, there's a video on YouTube called "Battle of the Album Covers", and it's AMAZING. --Someone took classic album covers, added animation . . . kind of like the animation from "Monty Python" . . . and made all the people, animals, and monsters on the covers come to life and start attacking each other. (--WARNING: This video includes nudity, and violent images.)

Five Types of Men You Shouldn't Marry:

Once they've gone on enough dates, most women start lowering the bar when it comes to marriage material. And if your standards were too high to begin with, that might even be a good thing. --But if you lower them TOO much, you could end up with someone you shouldn't be with. Here's a list from "The Huffington Post" of five types of men you shouldn't marry, because they won't make you happy in the long run.

#1.) The Guy Who Hates His Job. It's one thing if he doesn't LIKE his job and he's looking for something else. But if he's miserable and has no drive to find something better, you'll absorb that negativity, and YOU'LL be miserable too.

#2.) The Guy Who Puts Work First. This is the extreme opposite. If he's a workaholic, he might be a good PROVIDER. But he might not be there emotionally.

#3.) The Guy Who's Obsessed with His Mother. If he loves her and always defends her, you'll never live up to his standards. If he HATES her, he'll want you to be the exact opposite, which isn't realistic.

#4.) The Guy Who Doesn't Want You to Meet His Friends. Men need to spend time with their friends, just like women need a girls' night out sometimes. --But if he NEVER wants you around his friends, it's a sign he's not ready to share certain parts of his life . . . which means he's probably not a safe bet.

#5.) The Guy Who Can't Believe You Picked Him. If he says it once, just take it as a compliment. But if he says it ALL the time, he's probably got self-esteem issues. And eventually, you'll start wondering if he's right. (The Huffington Post)
