Not when he’s popping out his abs for you on Instagram. Justin Bieber is cut, OK? He trains with his trainer. He’s benefitting from his 19 year old metabolism. The more ripped he’s getting, the lower his pants are falling. But not like this:  Full Story

It’s not like Celine doesn’t have a voice. Full Story
