Oh good. It’s time for our favourite excuse: blame the bitch for everything. Justin Bieber’s been behaving badly the last few weeks. He shows up late for his shows. He baby-fights the paps.

Sarah from Cinesnark is the comedy expert around here and I haven’t asked her yet what she thinks of the new red band trailer for This Is The End but me, since I still have the sense of humour of 13 year old, obviously I’m all over it. Full Story

It's one thing to declare war on the paps. The paps don't have the resources Justin Bieber does. And many civilians would find it hard to sympathise with a pap. But Justin Bieber has a new adversary now. JB returned home yesterday and allegedly drove up and down his street aggressively in his new ride, supposedly threatening the safety of his neighbours. Full Story

I hear this from time to time from friends who have kids: “Oh she’s just going through a biting phase.” “Oh he’s just going through a fruit phase. He just wants to eat fruit.” And several times: “Oh he’s just going through a naked phase. Full Story

Justin Bieber is now in Spain. He performed in Madrid last night. This is a different face than the one we saw for a couple of weeks in England where he celebrated his 19th birthday by taking his shirt off, arguing with club owners over age restrictions, collapsing on stage, shouting at people over Twitter, and threatening to f-ck up the paps while being lifted out of his car seat by his babyguard. Full Story
