In what could be one of the dumbest happenings ever, five Norwegian schools have rescheduled their upcoming exams so that students can attend a Justin Bieber concert. Yes, really. Baby Elvis is due to perform in Oslo on April 16 & 17, but educators are worried that teen girls – who are notoriously nutso for this kid in Norway – will skip out on midterms to go see the show. Instead of expecting parents to get their kids to school and expecting the kids themselves to turn up or fail out, the affected schools have decided to postpone the tests.
To accommodate this Bieber-mania, five schools in the Alesund region — located some 230 miles (375 kilometers) northwest of Oslo — have rescheduled exams.
Kristin Halvorsen, Norway’s education minister, said she did not intend to intervene with the schools’ decisions.
“I am concerned that students should be concentrating when they take tests and midterms,” Halvorsen wrote The Associated Press in an email. “The local schools have the responsibility to schedule the local midterms, and if they think there is any reason to change the dates, they have authority to do so.”
As the minister explained, “We’ve all been 14-years-old and know that interests can be intense.”
I’m torn on this. Yes, teenagers are idiots and probably would skip school to go to a Justin Bieber concert, but why not let them face real world consequences and fail out, if that’s what they choose to do? Make the repercussions clear and if they choose to ignore them, too bad, so sad. Sorry, but your boss is not going to shut down the office in 10 years when you’re desperate to see the One Direction reunion tour, so get used to being a responsible human being now.
In other, more LOL-worthy news, Justin himself has been boo-hooing to Teen Vogue about how he has no friends. Huh, wonder why – who wouldn’t want to hang out with a total asshole? Oh, that’s right. Everyone.
“Literally, my phone never rings. I only have, like, four people that I keep in contact with. I just don’t trust anybody. But I don’t need a bunch of friends to make me happy.”
My phone never rings either, but that’s because my friends are smart enough to know I won’t answer and to text my ass instead. I don’t think that’s what Justin was going for, but I don’t care because he sucks.

LOLOLOL. Let’s all just digest this for a moment. Human shit stain Chris Brown – himself violent, homophobic and just generally a total smacked ass – is “praying” for Justin Bieber after hearing about the younger singer’s recent trouble/meltdown/whatever the hell it is he’s going through.
From Power 105.1 FM’s Breakfast Club:
“It’s a case of how I feel. Being young, having a limitless amount of income to do whatever you want. You have nobody who’s going to say, ‘Hey bro, you look whack right now.’
I feel like the mainstream media… they’re going to target the little black boys around him and say this is why he’s doing it. I’m damn sure glad I’m not around! I pray for him, I pray for myself. I think we’re both great artists… he’s like a baby Elvis.”
Okay, WHAT? There are so many things I have questions on here.
1. Why the hell wouldn’t someone tell you that you look “whack” for acting like a total dipshit? Maybe not the people who you employ, since they’d probably be afraid of, you know, not having an income, but how about your friends or family or something? Christ, that’s dim.
2. I’m glad at least that Chris could admit that he prays for himself, as well, but how is he not an atheist yet considering those prayers have clearly gone unanswered and they’re both still complete assholes?
3. BABY ELVIS???? Cover your ears, Mr. Presley, or you’ll be rolling in your grave. The day Justin Bieber is anything like Elvis Presley is the day I fling myself off the nearest bridge.
Just shut up. Everyone shut up! Justin probably wouldn’t think the Elvis comparison is too off the mark, though, considering he recently compared himself to Jay-Z in an interview with Teen Vogue:
“I don’t need to address every speculation. Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond? Because he’s Jay-Z.”
LOL F-ck off, kid.

I know we’re all tired of Justin Bieber (and I’m particularly tired of typing the word “asshole” over and over again), but he can’t seem to stay out of the news for longer than 24 hours and refuses to tone down his… assholery (?) so that we can stop writing about him. After smuggling a monkey – and no, that’s not a euphemism – to Germany and refusing to pay for a tattoo, the latest news comes all the way from Austria, where this punk ass has been banned from a nightclub for having his entourage/security team bust up the camera phones of fans enjoying themselves/taking a few snaps.
From The Austrian Times:
Baby Pop singer Justin Bieber has been banned from Vienna’s trendiest nightclub.
He went to the Passage club in Vienna, Austria – built on the site of a converted underground station – where he was surrounded by bodyguards.
According to the management at the club the bodyguards then smashed cameras of fans in the club, destroyed mobile telephones and even groped some of the young girl fans who reportedly left in tears after the Saturday morning assaults.
Club manager Joachim Bankel confirmed: “Justin Bieber is no longer welcome here.”
UGH, this fucking kid. Can he not just be banned from, like, planet earth as a whole?
In other news, will.i.am still thinks anyone gives a shit what he has to say about, well, anything, and is still sounding off on Bieber. His most recent pearl of wisdom saw him claiming that Justin’s money sponge mother, Pattie Mallette, will get him back on track. You know, despite being done with parenting him and all.
From The Daily Telegraph:
“Justin’s going to be okay. It’s dangerous to be a child star, but it’s dangerous to be a child in the ghetto, or to be a child at school being bullied.
“If you have good parents, you’ll be all right. Justin’s mom is great.”
When we eject Justin into space, let’s send will.i.am with him, shall we?

Justin Bieber‘s mother, Pattie Mallette, certainly won’t be winning any parent of the year awards, that’s for sure. After nearly aborting the little dickhead, she’s now trying to get famous by writing books and making films about how great actually having him worked out for her (read: $$$$, ya’ll!), all the while not giving a shit how much of an unbearable asshole he’s turned out to be.
Mallette is out on the ho stroll promoting Crescendo, which she is an executive producer on, and of course she’s been asked about Justin’s antics as of late, the most recent of which being his spitting in his neighbor’s face and threatening to kill him, refusing to pay a tattoo artist and sneaking a monkey onto his private jet. You’d think, as his mother, she’d refuse to comment (because you can’t realistically expect her to admit that yeah, he’s turned into a nasty piece of work) or say that it’s difficult and she’s trying to work out what’s behind his bullshit, etc. Instead, she just sorta shrugged and said her job as a parent is done.
From Access Hollywood:
“Him being 19, you know, I’ve just gotta let go a little and let him make some of his own decisions. He’s growing up. He’s 19. He’s not my baby.”
I mean, sure – he is technically an adult and can do whatever he wants, but I’m not even a parent and I know that role doesn’t end when a kid turns 18. Can she control him? Maybe not, but if she’s raised him to be so close to her and all that bullshit they both spout, you think she’d give more of a shit. But, you know, I guess once the check clears in the bank, you care a lot less about your own flesh and blood.
As for Justin, here’s more on his other fuckery. A tattoo artist from London has spoken out over the “spoiled brat” who whined and moaned about the £1,000 ($1,600) fee until the guy left with only half the money just to get away.
From The Mirror:
“Initially I was told to go to Justin’s hotel at 7pm by one of his minders but then I was called back and put on standby all night.
“I was finally summoned to the hotel at 6am. I was told money wasn’t a problem so we didn’t discuss prices.”
“When I said it was £1,000, Bieber’s bodyguard didn’t want to pay. They snubbed me and tried to haggle over the money. In the end I accepted £500 just so I could go.
“Basically, he’s a joke and a spoilt brat. When I was there, I also saw Justin throw a fit with his personal assistant. It was disgraceful.”
To be fair to Justin, I’d begrudge paying a grand for such ugly body art. Fuuuuuuck this kid. If all that wasn’t enough, he now faces prosecution and up to a $10,000 (or whatever the Euro equivalent is) in Germany for sneaking his pet monkey, Mally, on a transatlantic flight. The monkey’s now being detained at customs at his expense. What an idiot.
From The Sun:
The star broke strict health laws by sneaking the primate into Germany in his private jet.
Last night a source said: “Justin has been acting like a right diva. He is out of control and lives in an alternative reality to the rest of us.
“He didn’t think about the potential risks of flying a monkey from one continent to another.
“He and Mally go everywhere together. He will be heartbroken it has been put in quarantine.
A customs spokesman said: “The animal required a certificate of health and other authorisations.You cannot just land with a wild animal and bring it into the country if the flight has not originated from another EU country and you don’t have the proper paperwork.”
MAKE IT STOP.

Justin Bieber, you need to get your shit together in a nice little bundle and hold it closer, tiny dancer. You say you’re not a bad person and I believe that, but you are making some bad decisions. Like getting into a fight with your neighbor and being accused of battery. Now new details emerged that you spit on them and threatened to kill them. Dude, stop threatening to kill people. The last time you did that, your body guard held you back and made you look like an annoyed dad putting his child into a car seat.
Justin Bieber was so out of control during his altercation with a neighbor Tuesday … he had to be restrained by his bodyguard … this according to the neighbor’s account to cops.
We broke the story … the neighbor claims Justin spit in his face and threatened to kill him after he complained that the singer was driving his Ferrari at around 100 mph in the gated community.
We’ve now learned … the neighbor told L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies … Bieber wasn’t done after hocking the loogie … he was lunging at the 47-year-old man and the bodyguard had to restrain him.
Our Bieber sources say the singer insists he did not spit or attack the guy … but as we reported, a landscaper directly across the street from Bieber’s home says he saw the singer spit.
Mr. Bieber, you are an entitled angry young man who needs to realize that you have so many opportunities in front of you and that those opportunities should be your main focus in your lucky life. You have no idea how long this is going to last. Ask David Cassidy or Lief Garrett. If you have issues, that’s fine, a lot of people do. Get some therapy. Just because you’re super famous and super rich doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to have your own problems. I get that. But it also means that you aren’t allowed to spit at people and be a jerk. This is just common decency and common sense.

Alright, listen. Enough with these stupid kids being self-aware enough to know they’re being pricks but not enough self-control to, you know, not be pricks. Justin Bieber – he of the endless stream of asshole behavior, most recent of which is apparently spitting in his neighbor’s face and threatening to kill him – is now trying to garner sympathy by talking about how much it hurts is itty bitty feelings when people call him out for being the idiot he is because he’s really a great person deep down! WHY DOESN’T ANYONE UNDERSTAND HIM?!
From US Weekly:
“The biggest misconception about me is that I’m a bad person,” confides Bieber. “I get upset about that. I have a big heart. I want to be a good role model, but some people want me to fail.”
That said, he admits he’s far from perfect. “I’m young and I make mistakes. That’s part of growing up,” he says. “I mess up sometimes. It’s part of growing up.”
For now, the unattached heartthrob is tuning out his detractors. (He wraps up his nearly yearlong world tour in August.) “I know who I am and I’m not gonna let negativity towards me bring me down. I’m a positive person and I plan on staying that way,” Bieber says. “This business can break you down, but I have a strong team around me, and my family and all the fans. The love overcomes the negativity. I’m not perfect but I’m growing and trying to be better everyday. That’s part of life.”
Still, Bieber adds, “I’m young and I want to have fun. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.”
No one is saying there’s any problem with having fun, but we are saying that there’s a problem with being an entitled, self-righteous asshole who treats everyone like shit and acts like he’s infallible and rules the world. I’m sure the whole “misunderstood” angle is being fed to him by his PR team who want to continue sponging money out of him for as long as they can, but come on. He seems to think raising hell is a rite of passage, and I just want his career to come to a grinding halt. Ugh, teenagers.
