It’s all our fault that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez broke up

selena gomez justin bieber

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated and broke up then got back together again then split then reunited then ended it approximate 68 times in the past 5 years, but you know what? Those kids were the real thing! Nevermind that they were immature teenagers with too much money and not enough life experience to navigate the waters of a proper romantic relationship – they could have gone the distance, if only the entire world wasn’t against their love.

From V Magazine:

‘When you’re young and you’re being told so many different things… its almost felt like all we had was each other, like the world was against us in a way.

‘It was really weird but it was incredible. I would never take it back in a million years. You live and you learn, you know?’

‘That’s a growing up kind of thing. I was 18 years old, and it was my first love. The older I get, I’m guarding certain things more.’

‘There were a few months where I was a little depressed, where I wouldn’t leave (my house) as much,’ she admitted.

‘I think I drove myself crazy for a little bit. It was just easier to say, “Hey, do you mind running to the grocery store and picking some stuff up? I don’t want to get photographed.”’

I mean, it’s whatever – we’ve all been there. You’re young and dumb and think the person you’re with is going to be the one you spend the rest of your life with and that if you’re not together, you’d rather die than face another day without them. It sucks and it’s hilarious in hindsight because wowza, were you fucking wrong. Probably like, dozens of times. So I feel for her, in a way.

On the other hand… why is this still news. Talk about milking an angle for press. Even Bieber hasn’t gone on like this. And yes, I know it’s perceived as less masculine to talk about stuff like this and there’s likely a reason why she’s been more open (as I’m sure reporters tend to make it the focal point of more interviews with her), but like… damn.

Anyway, I’m sure we’ll be hearing another story about them being back together in a month or so.

Justin Bieber loves prank phone calls

justin bieber ellen

Justin Bieber is continuing his “I’ve Changed” tour and appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show for the third time this month on Monday. Apparently he’s promised to appear on the show whenever he’s in LA, because there’s nothing more wholesome to align yourself with than Ellen.

Anyhoo, Justin admitted yesterday that he just loooooves prank phone calls (because it’s 1995 and he’s a 13-year-old girl), so he and Ellen decided to prank one of JB’s biggest fans. The fan is a student at UMass who’s doing really well at school – but Justin decided to do his best (worst) English accent and pretend to be the Dean of the English Department to tell her she was failing out. What results is meant to be hilarious, I suppose:

I mean… LOL? I love pranks as much as the next person, but I suppose I just can’t warm to JB.

What do you think? Funny or desperate?

Justin Bieber is a ping-pong master

justin bieber

Justin Bieber doesn’t really have many redeeming qualities, but he’s okay at singing (I’m not saying his music is good, just that his voice isn’t complete trash and he can carry a tune) and more importantly, he’s a killer ping-pong player. Who knew?

The Fader hosted an All-Star Ping-Pong night at SPiN NYC on Friday night to benefit the American Youth Table Tennis Organization, which I don’t think any of us even knew was a thing before now. It was attended by the likes of Action Bronson in front of other stars like A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Elton Brand of the Atlanta Hawks, and DJ Khaled. Oh, and Bieber – and he cleaned house.

Here’s a video of Justin’s seemingly effortless victories. The more you know. (By the way, Google image searching “Justin Bieber ping-pong” comes up with LOADS of results of him playing over the years!)

Kevin Hart will host the Comedy Central Justin Bieber roast

justin bieber kevin hart

Justin Bieber is probably going to rue the day he ever wished for his own Comedy Central roast, because Kevin Hart has just been announced as the host for the event. If you’re not familiar with Kevin, his stand up is some of the funniest out there, and he can be absolutely brutal when it comes to making fun of his fellow celebs. In other words, it’s going to be brilliant.

The roast will air on Comedy Central on March 30th and it’s sure to make great hate watching – as in, it’ll be great to watch if you hate Justin Bieber. The world still isn’t ready to forgive him for being a giant bag of dicks yet, so hopefully he can pay some dues during this special event. Let’s hope the roasters take no prisoners, either – it ain’t a roast unless JB goes home crying.

Justin Bieber is really sorry for being a total douchebag

justin bieber

Here’s what I want to know: who knocked some sense into Justin Bieber‘s dumb ass? For the past several years, he’s progressively become more and more of an absolute walking shitbag and it was actually starting to affect his career (read: his money). Because of this, he’s decided to turn over a new leaf and go back to being “kind and loving and gentle and soft” – his mom raised him to be a softy, after all!

This all stemmed from his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, which he was apparently really nervous about because he hasn’t done a public appearance for a while and he felt like everyone was judging him. That apparently gave him some food for thought and he’s a changed man now who wants your forgiveness, according to a video he posted on Facebook yesterday:

To be honest, I’m not sure where Justin is filming this video and why he’s in complete darkness and speaking in a whisper. Is he afraid some of his “hard” friends might hear him and make fun of him? It’s all so strange.

In any case, it’s hard to listen to this and be like, “Nah, fuck this kid” because he’s right – growing up in the business has GOT to be hard, and frankly he’s fared better than the likes of, say, Lindsay Lohan and co. That being said, he has been SUCH a righteous douchebag that it’s hard to take this seriously. But kids do dumb shit all the time and they grow and learn and change, and maybe someone around him DOES actually care about him enough to take the time to sort of mentor him and get him back on the right path. He wasn’t always so awful, so surely he could – if he really wanted to – return to being that humble, kind kid, right?

God, maybe *I* am turning into a softy! What do you think?

Is Justin Bieber a changed man(child)?

justin bieber

Justin Bieber is one of the most notorious menaces to society in that he’s an utter dickbag with no sense of common decency or decorum and no idea about what it means to face consequences for his actions. He’s a joke, really – a literal joke, considering he’s about to be roasted by Comedy Central, apparently at his own request. It turns out, this roast might be a turning point for our pal Bieber, who is said to have been actually behaving himself pretty well over the past couple of months.

TMZ first reported … Justin himself asked to be roasted to celebrate his 21st birthday. We’re told he views it as a form of therapy … acknowledging hijinks from DUIs to pissing in kitchen buckets.

But here’s the thing … Justin definitely seems to have changed over the last 4 months. People around L.A. tell us he’s polite again, respectful and extremely generous. He went to Mozza in L.A. Sunday night but the restaurant was full. Two guys saw him and gladly moved to the bar so he could have a table. We’re told Justin walked up to thank them and then bought their dinner.

And Justin was in line at a restaurant a few days back and randomly bought a meal for some people behind him.

People who have regular contact with Bieber tell us they’ve seen a radical change. As one put it, “The person I knew is back.”

As for why the roast will be therapy … we’re told Justin thinks the evening will end the chapter of his life where he messed up. He’ll take his lumps, and then move on as a real adult.

I’m a bit too skeptical to believe that he’s actually got his shit together. He still LOOKS like too much of a toolbox to be taken seriously, and I don’t think staying out of trouble for 3 months means you’re suddenly a reformed character. Then there’s the fact that he’s marking the end of his dickhead era with… a celebration of himself. Instead of doing something massively worthwhile – say, something for charity that he actually takes part in instead of just throwing money at – he’s going to sit around and listen to people tell jokes about him. Well done, Justin. Truly selfless act.

Justin Bieber is getting his own Comedy Central roast

justin bieber

Justin Bieber has already been roasted repeatedly by Saturday Night Live and pretty much the entire internet, but it’s time to make it official, eh? Comedy Central is actually giving Bieber his own roast, to be filmed in March. He’ll be present for the roast and is apparently thrilled it’s happening since he’s been begging for it for years (lol).

The world-famous pop star, 20, will be roasted by the network in a March 7 taping, the insider tells Us. (Ryan Seacrest was first to reveal the news on Tuesday, Jan. 19.)

The source tells Usthat Bieber will be present for the roast. In fact, the “Baby” singer has been wanting to take part in one for ages. “Justin has been asking us for years to roast him,” Comedy Central told Seacrest, “so we kept telling him to create some more material and we’re thrilled he listened.”

First of all, there’s no way in hell he’s been wanting to do this for ages. He’ll cry his eyes out once the cameras stop rolling – he has no idea what he’s in for. But kudos for the attempt to seem like you’re ~totally chill~ and can laugh at yourself. It’s completely unbelievable, but hey, A+ for effort.

That being said, I wouldn’t miss out on an opportunity to see Justin Bieber ripped a new asshole, so I’ll check this out. Well played, Comedy Central.
