Or is this a onesie? It's Justin Bieber, on tour in Sweden the other day, grooving onto his bus with a member of his entourage like he's some kind of badass. In his mind, this was a cool move in the moment. And, I guess, his fans thought so too? Interesting the difference in perspective of what's "cool". Full Story

I thought about writing this article yesterday. Eventually I decided against it because if they got into a fight, it would have been a waste of my time and then I’d have to write another article to update the situation. It is now 10:30pm ET. So far, they haven’t changed their minds yet. Full Story

Every year a big budget movie takes a sh-t at the box office. The other day I predicted that Will Smith’s After Earth would hold that title in 2013. Sarah from Cinesnark didn’t disagree, but after the trailer for R.I.P.D. was released last week, she thinks it might be R. Full Story

I guess this is the age. You can make good decisions for two straight weeks. But then you’re dumb again the next day. According to TMZ,  Selena Gomez is dumb again. Gomez was sighted on a flight from LA to Olso last night. Full Story

Parents of teens -- this is for you. Justin Bieber has signed a $3.75 million year long deal with SpendSmart to launch a debit card aimed at adolescents. In short, mom and dad load up the card and Emmellee or Madycyn learn about how to budget on books and bus fare (sure, let's go with that) while staring at Bieber's face. Full Story

You needed a Canadian palate cleanser after that, didn’t you? How about Rachel McAdams, our sweetheart? She really is. Rachel was on Kimmel last night in purple pants and a purple blouse that seemed, maybe?, a little too harsh with her hair? No matter. It doesn’t take away from how lovely she is. Full Story

A red band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film, his second in a row with Ryan Gosling, was released online yesterday. As you know, their first collaboration was Drive.

Which has nothing to do with Rachel McAdams, but she was photographed at Disneyland yesterday with her family wearing a Boston Bruins vs Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup Finals cap so...
