You guys, today is a big day. It’s a huge day. And do you know why? It’s because Justin Bieber, our resident heartthrob, is turning 18 today. Do you know what that means? It means that I don’t have to feel creeped out anymore when I see Selena Gomez getting her Biebz on, and I don’t have to feel creeped out when I see comment after comment about the things that some of you would do to him. He’s 18, everybody! He’s totally legal! Feel free to describe any graphic sexual Bieber fantasies you have, because I no longer have to have a moral debate with myself over whether or not I need to report them. It’s a glorious day indeed!
Another thing that Justin Bieber’s birthday means? It means that I have to reevaluate how well I actually know my boyfriend. A little while ago, I was browsing through pictures of Justin Bieber, as I often do, and I made a comment about how Justin still looks a little, uh, feminine, but a couple of years ago, back when he first got his start, he could have been easily mistaken for a cute young lady. Boyfriend’s response? “Hey, it’s his birthday today, right?” There was probably a solid minute of silence where he looked a bit sheepish and I was surprised, and then he mumbled something about seeing it on Facebook. The point is, my boyfriend knew before I mentioned it that today is Justin Bieber’s birthday, and I definitely would have mentioned it had he not already known, and I really have to consider those implications heavily.
ANOTHER thing that this special Bieber day means? You get, as is customary for special snowflake birthdays, a gallery of some beautiful photos to drool over and print out for your collage or whatever your heart desires. Doesn’t that sound just swell? I took special care to select only the most gorgeous photos for you to feast your eyes on (of course, my favorite is the one where he gets assaulted by a wave and he makes that adorable “tee hee!” face). You’re welcome!
In closing, to take a lovely sentiment from the late, great Davy Jones “I saw his face, now I’m a Belieber.”

Because, you know, that’s a thing, being pre-engaged. It’s when you’re engaged to be engaged. It’s sort of like how right now I’m planning on planning on buying a new car, or how I’m thinking about thinking about finally taking down the Christmas tree. It’s the step you take before you take the step to get to the actual step. Get it?
Yeah, that’s a ring featuring a “J” made of diamonds, because Justin likes to keep it simple. He also likes to keep things locked down, because this ring signifies that little Justin wants to spend the rest of his whole life with Selena. Aww!
Selena Gomez, 19, shared a pic on Instagram on Feb. 12 of a ring in the shape of a ‘J’ with the message “I’m finally home” during a romantic date with boyfriend Justin Bieber, 17, in New York City. And now a new report claims the super cute gesture was Justin’s way of promising Selena he’ll be with her forever.
“It was kind of a pre-engagement ring, really,” a source tells OK! magazine. “They’re too young to get married, but they are just head over heels in love with each other and they want to spend the rest of their lives together…It symbolizes their intention to be together for a long time.”
This comes almost a year after the pair stepped out holding hands at the Vanity Fair Oscar party on Feb. 27, 2011. From tropical romantic getaways around the world to Mariah Yeater accusing Justin of being her baby’s daddy, the two young lovebirds have definitely had a whirlwind of a year, but are stronger than ever.
“They are 100 percent monogamous — Justin has girls throwing themselves at him all the time, but they are essentially invisible to him,” the source tells the mag. “Her never misses an opportunity to tell Selena how beautiful she is.”
Another sign that these two are getting more serious can be seen in that photo up there at the very top of this post, that one with Justin, Selena, and a couple of kids. This was from a little playdate they had recently with Justin’s two younger siblings, and it really looks like they’re playing pretend with kids again. These two are all about pre-planning to the max, huh?
What do you guys think? Is this couple going to make it all the way down the aisle?

It all has to do with a little girl he calls Mrs. Bieber:
Battling a rare form of cancer, Avalanna Routh scored the most coveted Valentine’s Day date in the world this year.
Affectionately known as “Mrs. Bieber’’ by her famous “husband,’’ the 6-year-old Boston girl got to spend the day in New York with Justin Bieber on Monday after an online campaign and a report by NBC Boston affiliate WHDH caught the eye of the pop star. He flew Routh and her family to Manhattan for a special date.
During their meeting, the two played board games, signed autographs for each other, and Routh even was able to lay her hands on the famous Bieber hairdo and style it her own way.
“That was one of the best things I have ever done,’’ Bieber later tweeted. “She was AWESOME. Feeling really inspired right now.’’
Another tweet read, “Best part of my day.’’
Last year, thanks to the Jimmy Fund, Routh got a pretend marriage to Bieber to earn the moniker “Mrs. Bieber.’’ Her family created a Facebook page dedicated to somehow arranging a meeting between Routh and Bieber, and it came to fruition three days after Bieber tweeted the link to the WHDH segment to his more than 17 million followers. For almost her entire life, Routh has fought against an aggressive and rare form of cancer known as ATRT that is diagnosed in less than 30 cases per year.
The little girl has loved Bieber longer than she’s been alive, as she joked during her “date’’ with him. Asked how long she has been a Bieber fan, Routh replied, “Seven years. No, 80. Eighty years.’’
The hashtag #MrsBieber trended worldwide on Twitter Monday as news of the special meeting in advance of Valentine’s Day spread.
“It’s wonderful,’’ Aileen Routh, Avalanna’s mother, told NBC News. “It was another fun moment.’’
Like the rest of the legion of Bieber fans, Routh was afflicted with a certain condition sweeping the world on Valentine’s Day.
“I got Bieber fever,’’ she told NBC News before smiling.
All right, is everyone crying now? Does everyone feel all tender and emotional and warm inside? Then check out the picture that Justin tweeted:

First of all, it should be completely appalling to you that Justin Bieber wants to remake any movie at all. Do you remember his work on CSI? It wasn’t that good, and he was just a guest star on a television show. Can you imagine how completely awful he would be as the star in a full-length film? It would be nearly unbearable (Never Say Never doesn’t count).
Second of all, it should be completely appalling to you when you find out which movie it is that The Biebz wants to remake. Are you ready for it?
And here’s the full story:
Our source would like to remain anonymous for now, as he is still working next to the singer, but we’ve been told that Bieber has been mulling over a number of feature ideas, and instead of looking to someone like Britney Spears for guidance in this department, he is looking to build off the career model of teeny bopper/rapper-turned-Oscar nominated actor Mark Wahlberg. And while Renaissance Man and The Basketball Diaries came first on his resume, its Marky Mark’s dark R rated thriller Fear that has caught the attention of Justin Bieber.
There are currently no plans to remake Fear, released by Universal Pictures in 1996. But Justin Bieber is rumored to be obsessed with the movie, which finds Mark Wahlberg playing the psychotic boyfriend of Reese Witherspoon, who torments both her and her family. Throughout the course of its runtime, his David McCall rapes a young woman played by Alyssa Milano, beheads a beloved family pet, carves tattoos into his chest, breaks the neck of a family friend, beats himself up, and threatens to shoot Justin Bieber’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation co-starWilliam Petersen (see the connection there?) point blank in the top of the head. Not to mention the most iconic scene, where he fingers Reese on a roller coaster to the tune of The Sunday’s “Wild Horses.”
Justin Bieber is said to be eyeing the role in a proposed remake, hoping that it will give his image and career the same edge it gave Mark Wahlberg back in 1996, a time when most thought of the actor as a one hit wonder who would quietly disappear. Mark Wahlberg was 25 at the time he made Fear. Justin Bieber will turn 18 this March.
It is believed that Justin Bieber will pursue the rights to remaking Fear, using the film as his launching board into feature film acting. Though, its being speculated that this new Fear will most likely be tamed down for a PG-13 rating, and that it will closely resemble the thrillers and remakes currently being produced by Sony’s Screen Gems division.
While this isn’t any official news, it’s so easy to see Justin Bieber pulling this move, isn’t it? If you’ll recall, he’s in that rebellious phase where he gets tattoos and dyes his hair. The next logical step is to star in a film in which he would play a complete psychopath.
Do you think Selena Gomez would take Reese Witherspoon’s role?

7Love It or Leave It: Justin Bieber Dyes his Hair Dark Which Means He’s Going Off the Rails Soon, Right?
That’s usually what that means, right? When Lindsay Lohan dyes her hair blonde, it reflects the amount of crazy she’s got in her system at that particular given time. When Britney Spears breaks out the pink wig, God help us all – major shit is about to hit the fan, deep-voiced Satan is about to emerge, and cities are going to fall. So what does all of this mean – all of this Justin Gothic Bieber stuff? End of the world? Does it mean that when Justin Bieber goes all dark and stuff, that we’re to expect some pretty colossal, public f-ck-ups in the near future? Because man. Wouldn’t that be just great? I totally thought that the end was near when the Teutonic Torso was naming him as her baby-daddy, but I was really let down there, so I’m praying that this means there’ll be some interesting stuff coming down the pike. Jesus tattoos and all, folks. Just in time for the end of the world.
Or maybe, in a less-interesting fashion, it’s to copy girlfriend Selena Gomez’s new look. She just put a bunch of blue in her already-dark hair the other day. It’s kind of alright, but it’s Selena Gomez. This might be the most scandalous thing she’s ever done, or really, will ever do, might I add.
Nope, I think that if anyone present in this relationship is cut out for insanity and wild antics, it’s Justin. I mean, honestly. Selena’s almost twenty-one and this is definitely the height of her craziness. I mean, for the love of God, blue striped hair? That’s kind of like that one time that Rachel McAdams put pink in her hair. Talk about, like, OMG what a harlot, right?

Don’t worry, I don’t really believe that, that Justin Bieber is the new King of Pop – I actually believe that Justin Bieber is the new King of Dumb Tattoos and Douchebaggery – I only said that because this kid will absolutely not shut up about Michael Jackson in this interview he did with V Magazine.
On his hopes and dreams: My goal at the end of the day—right now—I want to be successful and be great at what I do. But eventually, I want to become the best at what I do. I want to be the best. In the world. I want to be better than anybody that’s ever done it. And in order to do that, I need to strive to be the best, be good to people and treat people with respect, and work as hard as I can. Because for me, I work so hard and this consumes my life, and it’s not worth it if I’m not the best.
On “the best”: I mean, I consider Michael Jackson the best. If I could be at his level… But I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’m not saying it’s going to happen within the next three years. But hopefully by the time I’m 30, people will remember me. I think people will remember me at this point, but I don’t want people to just think of me as a teen sensation. Because I could probably just sell out, and then in two years not put out another album, and just become Justin Bieber the teen superstar. But I don’t want to be that. I want to transition, and become the greatest.
On his plans to keep it clean: There are people who try to grow up too fast—they’re 18, so they’re like, I’m not a kid anymore. People need to know I’m not a kid anymore. But at the end of the day, I’m not completely grown-up. I’m still learning. I’m going to grow up how I grow up. I’m not going to try to conform to what people want me to be or go out there and start partying, have people see me with alcohol. I want to do it at my own pace. But I’m never going to make myself so the kids and the parents don’t respect me. There’re some artists that [parents won’t] let their kids go and see because they think they’re a bad influence. I want to be able to do what Michael did—he always sang clean lyrics—and it was always that little kids loved Michael and grandparents loved Michael. I don’t want to start singing about things like sex, drugs, and swearing. I’m into love, and maybe I’ll get more into making love when I’m older. But I want to be someone who is respected by everybody. Because right now, the young people are who make society. Young people determine what’s cool. Young people determine what’s going to be in style. So I always stick with the young people, that’s what I say.
More on Michael Jackson: Michael had a really bad childhood. I was blessed with a great childhood. My mom loved me. My dad loved me. I’m now a teenager and I don’t feel like I’ve missed out on anything in my life. I’ve gotten to experience everything I possibly could. I don’t look back and think, Ugh, I wish I would have been able to do that. Maybe [Michael] missed out on a lot, so he tried to [re-live] his childhood when he was older. But I’ve got such good people around me, I’m not worried.
On admiring Lil Wayne and Kanye, and also Michael Jackson: I can’t say I look up to them, but I definitely like what they do. I think that they’re amazing. But are they on Michael’s level? I don’t think they’re on Michael’s level. Well, Kanye is on a different level. I mean, Kanye is probably my favorite producer. He’s a musical genius. But, he’s not on Michael’s level. I think that in order to be on Michael’s level you have to reach as many people as Michael reached, and Kanye doesn’t reach as many people. No one really does.
But what about you, Justin?
