Justin Bieber's neck *not* broken; Laurie David denies Al Gore affair

By Liz Kelly and Jen Chaney

Wednesday

Bieber Bunk: Nice try Interwebs pranksters, but after first duping us with a Justin Bieber death hoax last week, we're justifiably wary. And so it is that we were quickly able to dismiss today's lame-o rumors that Bieber either a) broke his neck or b) is suffering from a nasty communicable disease. Get back to us when you're able to cobble together a semi-believable Bieber-based hoax. (More Bieber: The fever that won't quit)

Celebrity Beat: George Clooney joins Council on Foreign Relations... Gabourey Sidibe's mom blows away competition on "America's Got Talent"... Randy Jackson (Michael's brother) hospitalized with chest pains... Prince to get BET lifetime achievement award... William Shatner to direct a documentary about, umm, William Shatner... Dakota Fanning skips "Twilight: Eclipse" screening to take college entrance exam... Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston spending more time together... Halle Berry and ex Gabriel Aubry reunite to take daughter to Disneyland... Tom Brady debuts Bieber-esque hairdo... Tiffani Theissen gives birth to baby girl... Thank you Buzzfeed, for compiling this list of 15 things Larry King doesn't know.

Rumor Mill: Laurie David calls rumored affair with Al Gore "completely untrue"... Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller sign divorce docs; Mueller headed back to rehab... Cameron Diaz denies she's dating Alex Rodriguez... Is half of the "Jersey Shore" cast on the chopping block?... Ryan Seacrest dating "Dancing with the Stars" pro Julianne Hough?

Pop Culture Mix: "Karate Kid" sequel already in the works... Russell Crowe to play the Equalizer in movie adaptation... Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage to play married couple in "Trespass"... Summit Entertainment sues to stop sale of "Twilight" Bella jacket... Conan O'Brien gets a warm welcome at Turner network headquarters, home of TBS... Former "Late Night" announcer Joel Godard? Not as happy with Conan O'Brien... The ninja: pop culture cliche or poised for a comeback?

Video flashback: Tom Cruise, on "Good Morning America" with Kathie Lee Gifford in 1983, promoting "Risky Business" (via Cinematical)

Say What?
"I'm not trying to be 'slutty.' I'm not trying to be like, go to the club and get a bunch of guys ... What I'm trying to do is to make a point with my record and look consistent, in the way my record sounds and the way I dress." -- Miley Cyrus on recent criticism of her shrinking stage wear.

Dakota Fanning skips "Twilight: Eclipse" screening to take college entrance exam.

Oh, the SMAME! Doesn't she know she's supposed to be emulating LiLo, Brit-Brit, Miley and their ilk?


Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston spending more time together.

Will they name their next baby Tripe? Or Trope?


Laurie David calls rumored affair with Al Gore "completely untrue."

There are so many conflicting rumors currently floating around in the blogosphere that they couldn't all possibly be true. Awaiting incriminating photos in the tabloids before deciding...


The ninja: pop culture cliche or poised for a comeback?

Moot point. Doesn't EVERYTHING become a pop culture cliché sooner or later?

What about the rumour that Justin Bieber burned down, fell over, and then sank into the swamp? Also not true?


"George Clooney joins Council on Foreign Relations." Is it for schtupping Italians generally, or Elisabetta Canalis specifically?


Randy Jackson: "Whatever you do, do NOT page Dr. Murray."


Prince to get BET lifetime achievement award: they're going to party like he's as big as he was in 1999.

I've always found that how you dress has a tremendous impact on what your music sounds like...

BWAAAA HAHAHAHA

But seriously. There was a picture of Fabio Cannavaro on the front page of the post yesterday... le swoon....

Oh god, I loved the Equalizer. But even if I wanted a remake, Russell Crowe is too young for it.

Justin Bieber's neck *not* broken...Well keep trying darnnit!


Cameron Diaz denies she's dating Alex Rodriguez...Which is something any self-respecting woman should do.

An Equalizer movie? Is there nothing sacred anymore?


Lets remember, ninjas never really went away, they were just waiting in the shadows crouched in attack position. (He writes as he wears his TMNT shirt...)

LTL, does Little Lurker have his first soccer shirt yet? I assume his dribbling is still pretty much confined to drooling, however, owing to his extreme youth.

BTW, any word yet on the imminent arrival of the Little Celebritologist?

Separated at birth? Bieber and Waldo Ponce (Chilean soccer player).

Summit Entertainment:

Let me get this straight: a particular label got insanely lucky when you put their product into their movie with massive cult status without having to pay you any promotional fees. In fact, it got in there because it looks nice on one of your leads.

Now, when they can make some money off of their incredible luck - and the fact that they made an item you thought fit the style of your lead character - you want them to stop promoting it, stop making it, destroy their stock of if and give you all the profits.

May I ask what crack you are smoking and if it isn't enough to smoke it out of the diamond-studded unobtanium pipe you bought with the insane profits from the low production value and insanely high grosses from that movie?

That has got to be one of the douchiest moves I have ever seen. It's not like they made the jacket after the fact - you did actually use their product. Get over it. It's more advertising for your franchise at no cost to you!

Agreed, Chasmo, except that suing brings even more publicity.

Can the entire Jersey Shore cast be on the chopping block. I have a friend with a nice sharp axe.

Posted by: epjd | June 16, 2010 9:52 AM | Report abuse

Please be advised that Prince Rogers Nelson has more talent in the loose skin around the third knuckle of his right hand than Justin Beber WILL EVER HAVE.

Of all the things for half of the Jersey Shore cast to be on, the chopping block would not have been one of my early guesses.

And Tom Brady's Bieber-esque haircut is further proof (as though any were needed) that the guy is a d-word.

Good for you, Dakota Fanning! Miley Cyrus, take note and follow suit. Preferably while wearing pants - the test rooms are always too cold.

No byoo, that was a six story statue of Jesus. But I can see how easy it would be to make that mistake.

Dorkus, which TNMT were you, Donatello Maximus?

"'Karate Kid' sequel already in the works" -- Maybe they can bring back that Hilary Swark girl from a prior KK sequel. Whatever happened to her?

"Tom Brady debuts Bieber-esque hairdo" -- I think calling it Bieber-esque is a stretch. Because every guy in the 70s had that hairstyle, including me.

"Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage to play married couple in 'Trespass'" -- My instant reaction is "ew." Cold fish Nicole and scary quirky Nic. I hope "Trespass" is about a pale, bluish woman who crosses the property line of an Elvis freak baker with a prosthetic hand. ("Nicole, bring me the big knife!")

"Ryan Seacrest dating 'Dancing with the Stars' pro Julianne Hough?" -- Ryan's agent is working overtime. Just sayin'.

"Laurie David calls rumored affair with Al Gore 'completely untrue'" -- HAL David, however, was spotted moping around the Gore's mansion singing, "Walk On By"

"Randy Jackson (Michael's brother) hospitalized with chest pains" -- I bet Daddy Joe is already on the record blaming his ex-wife and Michael's doctor for this.

"William Shatner to direct a documentary about, umm, William Shatner" -- I find myself strangely in favor of this idea. Who better to shoot Shat?

Nosy:

More publicity, and they are just going to mobilize the Twilight fan base, which is a scary thing. And Google insures that the link between the company, their jacket and the movie exists for a long time.

So stupid.

Hey Bieber and (now, sadly) Brady -- I've been rocking the "turtleneck hair" hairstyle every winter since I was 5. Why don't you try something new and edgy, like the Moe.

Yeah, my guess would have been penicillin.

Little Lurker has his first pair of cleats already :) and yes is quite the dribbler these days.

How's queen Liz doing and little Celebrito/a???

td I'm betting Hillary Swark is better looking than Hillary Swank, right?

Miley, why are you BRAGGING about the fact that you act slutty even when you don't try?

Not true. It's only a flesh wound.

Congratulations Bieber boy, you know you're a bona fide celebrity when there's a death hoax about you.

Holy moly, Tom Brady, get thee to a barber now!!!

If I never hear the name Miley Cyrus again, it will be too soon. I will say, however, that if she wants to be thought of as "not slutty", she might want to consider wearing undergarments, not pole-dancing and not wearing slutty clothes.

"Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston spending more time together.

Will they name their next baby Tripe? Or Trope?"

How about Algebra or Geometry, to go with brother Trig?

If I remember correctly, Calculus follows Trig.

As yes td, I was always Donatello. I was a nerd way back then.

Cali, SPLOOT! Along similar lines, how about Remedial Arithmetic (since Bristol seems unable, or at least unwilling, to count her days)?

Or Trap, if it's Bristol's way of trying to extract more $$ from Levi?

Dorkus, back in the day, Solid Geometry followed Trig and preceded Calculus/Analytical Geometry.

Well we know the Palins don't practice birth control, so it's good they're set for at least the next 3 kids.

Calif, don't forget Lt. Tragg, on "Perry Mason." Or the Troggs, of the monster hit "Wild Thing" ("You make my heart sing, You make evvv'rything grooovy"). And how about Troup (Bobby, of "Route 66" fame)?

Oh no, I knew it! Like I said the day the Al and Tipper story broke, just wait a couple of weeks and we'll find out one of them got caught with their pants down. And here we are a couple of weeks later.......
