Charlie Sheen sets new Twitter record; Selena Gomez not punched by a Justin Bieber fan
In all sincerity... Thank you Twitter community for the warm reception & the followers that helped get me to 1M in 24 hours!!!
A look at some of the celebrity and pop culture stories on my radar...
Charlie Sheen has set a new Guinness World Record by amassing 1 million Twitter followers in 25 hours and 17 minutes. Apparently there is no previous record holder in the category, so Sheen is the first to hold the honor. Yes, this is what winning looks like. (Mashable)
From the dept. of things that didn't actually happen: Selena Gomez was not punched by a Justin Bieber fan. Her rep confirms that the rumors, circulating on Twitter and elsewhere about the cause of what appears to be a Gomez fat lip, are untrue. (People)
From the dept. of things that did happen: Justin Bieber has apologized to fans for giving the paparazzi the finger. During the same media melee that prompted the rumors that Gomez had become the victim of Bieber Fever, the pop star lost his composure and flipped the bird at some photographers. He tweeted his regrets: "had a great bday and at the end of the night we got surrounded by paps and i reacted in a way i know better. im sorry #killthemwithkindness." Like all intense pop star scrums, it happened outside a Maggiano's. (Popeater)
Another addition to the "Superman" cast and a look at the most paused moments in movie history, after the jump...

Are these really the 10 most paused moments in movie history? Because the Internet wants to know why Phoebe Cates emerging from a swimming pool in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" isn't on the list. (Lovefilm via Slashfilm)
