JUSTIN BIEBER'S MOM & DAD LOVE SELENA GOMEZ

Justin Bieber




E! NEWS -- Justin Bieber's Family Thinks Selena Gomez Is a "Positive Influence"


Justin Bieber's mom and dad totally approve of Selena Gomez.


As the pop music superstars continue to give their romance another chance, some fans have wondered what Pattie Mallette and Jeremy Bieber think of their son's leading lady.


According to multiple sources, they are totally fans of the "Come and Get It" singer.


"His parents love Selena. That want him to date someone and think she is very sweet and a good girl," one source shared with E! News exclusively. "They are happy with how Justin is doing and his focus. They support him going to church often and having his faith being such a big part of his life."


The insider continued, "They think that being back together with Selena is a positive thing. He wants to do things differently and make it right and show everyone how far he has come."


In fact, we're told Justin's mom has always liked Selena and knows how happy she makes her son.


"She thinks she's a positive influence in his life. Justin has been a lot more motivated since they've rekindled," another source shared. "Justin has a very close relationship with his mother and wouldn't pursue a relationship with someone that his mom didn't like."


So is the feeling mutual when it comes to Selena's immediate family? Last month, a source shared with E! News that her family "is still getting comfortable with the idea of them back together."


Ultimately, there's no denying the special bond these two have continued to maintain after all these years. Whether enjoying date night at church or simply riding bikes together, this pair may just be proving that young love never dies.


As for an official Instagram photo together, we're still waiting on that one. Perhaps they can count on Pattie and Jeremy for a "like."

JUSTIN BIEBER & SELENA GOMEZ ROMANTIC DINNERS

Selena Gomez



E! News  -- Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez continue to spent time together, fueling rumors of a possible romantic reconciliation following her breakup with The Weeknd.


The two were photographed at Morton's Steakhouse on Friday. They had a late dinner there. The restaurant closed at 10 p.m. but stayed open almost two hours after closing time just for them, a source told E! News.


Justin, 23, and Selena, 25, have spent quite a lot of time together since E! News confirmed on October 30 that Selena and The Weeknd had split after dating for at least 10 months.


So is Selena back with Justin?


The two have not commented on the nature of their relationship. However, another source told E! News on Saturday that while they're not "official" or fully back together, "they are more together now than they were a year ago."


"Her family and friends just don't want Selena to be with the immature and foolish Justin they know," the source added. "He's trying to change and be a better guy. We'll see what happens...Justin is changing but it's a process. He's trying."


Earlier this week, another insider told E! News that "Justin and Selena are seeing each other and will continue to be spending time together but haven't described it as an official couple. Right now, they are figuring out if it will work again between the two."



And a jail sentence when he reached a plea deal, pleading guilty to reduced charges of misdemeanor careless driving and resisting arrest. In a separate incident, he was charged with misdemeanor vandalism for pelting a neighbor's home with eggs. He got probation and paid the neighbors $80,000.
Also in 2014, video footage of him urinating in a bucket while cursing out former President Bill Clinton went viral. Bieber later apologized.

WEEKND NOT FINE WITH JUSTIN BIEBER & SELENA GOMEZ

Justin Bieber




E-NEWS -- When Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were spotted hanging out last week, we were told The Weeknd was fine with it...but apparently things have changed.



As we confirmed earlier today, Gomez and The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) decided to split sometime last week, and while we're told Bieber was "no factor" in their breakup, a source tells us the "Starboy" singer isn't stoked to see them spending so much time together.



Not only was Bieber photographed hanging out at Gomez's house last weekend, they were also spotted enjoying breakfast at JOi Cafe in Westlake Village, Calif., on Sunday—just a few days after Gomez and The Weeknd called it quits.



Now, a source tells E! News, "Abel is upset about Selena hanging out with Justin, especially twice in the same week."



Still, we're told Gomez and Bieber are just friends.



"Selena and Justin have reconnected because they have gone through similar stuff in the past couple years with being physically and mentally exhausted from touring and just dealing with the anxiety and pressure of growing up in the public eye," another source told us. "They have always had a strong connection, and they are leaning on each other as friends. They are both there for each other to talk and support one another."



Though there's nothing romantic going on between them right now, our insider adds things could "change at any moment."



As you know, Gomez and Bieber dated for three years before splitting up in 2014, continuing their on-and-off relationship for a few years until Gomez started seeing The Weeknd in January.



However, after Gomez had surgery for a kidney transplant in her continued battle against Lupus, the exes reconnected.



"They both have a long history with each other so they will always have a place in their heart for one another," another source explained of their reunion last week.



As for Gomez and The Weeknd, their split was a longtime coming and had nothing to do with Bieber. In fact, they began having conversations about the future of their relationship over the summer.



"It's been hard for them to come to the realization that this is the direction things were heading, but it's been hard for months," an insider said in confirming their split. "They are still talking and will remain friends. They have been very grown-up about it."

JUSTIN BIEBER'S TATTOO ARTIST BANG BANG TALKS

Justin Bieber Tattoos



E! NEWS -- Justin Bieber shocked fans on Saturday when he debuted a massive torso tattoothat incorporated existing smaller designs.



Bang Bang, the tattoo artist who gave the singer his new ink, talked to E! News exclusively about the meaning behind it. The tattoo took three days to create and was done in Beverly Hills.



"We added two angels, one on each side," he said. "Below each one, they're dominating the evil. Whenever I do an epic piece, there needs to be the positive and negative. There needs to be a balance...visually there needs to be contrast. Below each of the angels, there is a demon that needs to be defeated. The skeleton on one side and the serpent on the other."



"It's symbolic of Gothic art and the struggle between the light and dark, the good and the evil, Yin and Yang," he said. "I wanted to make sure we had contrast in subject matter and imagery. The thing that made the most sense to me was a tattoo describing his spirituality. The animals he has, his spirit animals as well as the angels, his guardians. I was trying to make it super meaningful and not scattered."



Bang Bang said Justin texted him about getting new ink.



"He said he has a mustache on his belly, referring to the eagle, and it just needed more around it so it wasn't so isolated and floating in the middle of his stomach," the tattoo artist said, laughing. "I don't know why he thought it looked like a mustache. Maybe one of his friends told him that."



Bang Bang said Bieber didn't know what was planned beforehand.



"He said he wanted me to cover his front, so I sent him a bunch of options," he said. "They were all religious in subject. I explained to him that the whole front should be one idea. I didn't actually cover anything. There are no cover ups."



Bang Bang said he worked on the design for three weeks. Inking it on Bieber took three days. During that time, Bieber was accompanied by a friend. On the last day, more of his pals came and they all had a Nerf Ball fight with the tattoo artist during a break. Bieber also periodically sent photos of his tattoo-in-progress to family and friends, who gave him good feedback.



"Everyone was really stoked about it," Bang Bang said.



He said that while he was tattooing Bieber, the two "talked about life."



"We talked about growing up," he added. "We talked about people and their perceptions. How changes in life and people all come like seasons. We also talked about just figuring it out. I've known Justin for a long time and I've got to see this talented world famous iconic young man grow up. And same for me. When he met me, I was younger and we were in different spots in life. And it's cool to see how we've grown."



And Bieber is in no way done with tattoos.



"I'm coming back soon," Bang Bang said, laughing. "I did the bottom half of his front but still need to do the top."

JUSTIN BIEBER CANCELS SELENA GOMEZ PLANS

Justin Bieber



Justin Bieber was about to go all out to win Selena Gomez back again...but something made him cancel all his plans.

Sources tell E! News exclusively that the 22-year-old singer had planned to surprise his former girlfriend after she attended his Los Angeles Purpose World Tour concert on Wednesday.

"Justin wanted to rent out the Staples Center after his concert to do a repeat date night screening of Titanic for Selena because he is trying to get back with her," the insider tells us.

However, things didn't go as planned and Bieber ended up "calling it off."

"I don't know why he didn't go through with it, and I also don't know if he ever even told Selena about his plan, but I do know he is really obviously trying to date her again," the source explains. "He wanted to do something big and extravagant for her like this and had been making arrangements for the movie date before his concert even started."

However, another insider says Justin's mood was "off" the entire day leading up to the big night.

"He cancelled his meet and greet that fans paid $2000 for," the source notes. "During his concert between songs, he was alluding to the fact that he wasn't happy to be there. At one point during the concert he was just lying on the stage not singing, just letting the track run."

We're told he actually ended up leaving the concert 20 minutes early with Selena, forcing Skrillex to close the show by himself.

So what exactly went down between the pair? "The speculation is that an argument had taken place between the two before the show since he cancelled the date plans," says the source, who adds, "Something had shifted Bieber's mood completely."

Meanwhile, all of this Selena news has really been causing quite the stir for fans of the famous couple.

Last week, Bieber shared a cryptic throwback photo of him kissing his ex-girlfriend with the simple caption, "feels." Then, two days later, SelGo ended up attending Bieber's L.A. concert.

We're told she had an amazing time watching him perform and hanging out with him in his dressing room after the show.

"[Selena and Justin] looked genuinely comfortable together," an onlooker revealed to us. "They both looked really happy."

Despite what it looks like to the public however, another insider promises, "There is nothing romantic going. They are not dating."

And the Selena saga continues...

JUSTIN BIEBER & HAILEY BALDWIN ACT LIKE LOVEBIRDS

Justin Bieber



E! NEWS -- While Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin sure look like a pair of fresh lovebirds, they don't have any official label just yet.


The "Sorry" singer and billboard stunner have been basking in some hot and heavy PDA while celebrating the New Year in Anguilla and St. Barts together.


Thanks to a series of Instagram shots of the twosome shared by Bieber himself, we have proof of them canoodling on a couch, locking lips and, most recently, sporting matching braids while posing in the Caribbean sun.


"Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me Bieber," he wrote of his new look.


While it's not exactly the most romantic description of his new 'do, their suddenly coordinating looks are not surprising as their "tight relationship" flourishes.


"Hailey and Justin have a very tight relationship. They both are very close with each other's families and care very deeply about each other," a source told E! News. "Hailey's family has been there and supported Justin through his transition so Justin has a strong respect for them."


"He loves Hailey as a friend and considers her one of his best friends," the source added. "They both also have a strong attraction towards each other and this trip they have been having fun with their families, but also had some alone time. Hailey and Justin like to party and let loose and this romantic connection has always been there."


In fact, the celebrity pals have known each other since they were barely teenagers starting from when Baldwin was "about 13" years old and Bieber was on the cusp of musical stardom.


"Hailey has been by Justin's side through so many ups and downs and loves him for who he became," the source shared.


Despite all their canoodling, their current relationship status remains undefined although "both of their families love them together."


"They don't have a label, but are very connected," the source revealed.


For the longtime friends, the romantic spark between them has been building for some time.


"I don't think this is anything new. They're just letting it out for the first time," a second source told E! News, reaffirming that "their families are very happy about it."


While they both lead very public lives, actor Stephen Baldwin's daughter may have had an effect on the 21-year-old Grammy winner's spiritual side.


"She's a good girl who has a life based in Christian faith," the second source added. "It's nice to see that Justin has caught up with that and appreciates it."


So, how long until these sparks burn out?


"I don't think this is going away anytime soon."

Justin Bieber In Seventeen Magazine



Justin Bieber covers the June/July ’15 issue of Seventeen, on newsstands nationwide May 19. After months of misbehaving, the pop star tells Seventeen that he’s ready to get serious again – about his life, his music, and his relationships.

“I was rebelling a little bit. I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me. I looked back and I was disappointed in myself."



On making mistakes:


“You have to own up to the mistakes. You have to say, I’m sorry if I’ve let you down. I always want to be honest and let people know that those mistakes aren’t who I am. Who I am is someone who really cares about people.”



On relationships:


“I need healthy relationships with people I can feel safe with. People I can say whatever to, and I’m not going to be judged. In a girl, I want someone who’s confident in herself and honest. I have to find her very attractive and as someone I can see myself with for the rest of my life.”

KENDALL JENNER DENIED ENTRY INTO COACHELLA BASH

Kendall Jenner



Apparently, you can't do whatever you want when you're Kendall Jenner.


E! News exclusively learns the famous 19-year-old was denied entry at Coachella's Neon Carnival Party on Saturday night because of their strict 21-and-over policy.


Jenner, who was covering her face with bandanas, arrived at the event with Justin Bieber and a large group of about 20 pals late in the evening, a source tells E! News.


According to the insider, security stopped Biebs and his group and demanded to see everyones IDs. Once they saw that Kendall was underage, they refused to allow her inside. Justin caused an enormous scene and threw a fit to try and let his famous friend inside, but security didn't budge. So, they all left.


A rep for the family hasn't responded to request for comment.


Meanwhile, Bieber, who was expected at the party, returned later with a smaller group of people (no Kendall) and partied with other celebs who were present, including Chris Brown, Aaron Paul, Scott Eastwood, Leonardo DiCaprio and many, many more.

There is no denying that Justin Bieber has all the makings of a successful pop star: talent, good looks, charm…and a massive profit-generating fan base.

- On Justin’s introduction back into the public eye



“He was fast becoming irrelevant. It wasn't that he couldn't get arrested anymore; it was that he could get arrested, but no one cared. His team needed to do something fast.”

JUSTIN BIEBER & FASHION ROCKS FLOP IN BROOKLYN

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. HARDING
****
Justin Bieber




FASHION ROCKS FLOPS --- Onstage and onscreen, CBS’ Fashion Rock (hosted by Ryan Seacrest) had its high notes (and flat moments), but the Tuesday night telecast -intersecting sound and style- had more going on behind the scenes, including reminders to cheer, a slew of giveaways and a performance that started to clear out the Barclays Center audience.



Several sources recount 11 things seen and heard inside the arena and on the red carpet of the CBS event:



1. When the live broadcast began at 9 PM ET, the seated audience — composed of both devout fashion believers in notable heels, trendy hairstyle and labeled pieces, and music fans in jeans and clubwear — was only about 80% filled. Still, they gave 100% of their shouts for show opener Usher.



As the show started, pictures of Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Pitbull triggered the biggest cheers during the opening credits.



2. The first performer to actually evoke a palpable energy from the live audience was Iglesias, who sang "Bailando" with Sean Paul and Gente de Zona, and were introduced by Tommy Hilfiger and the most popular model of the evening, Naomi Campbell. They hit the stage over half an hour into the event — maybe the beers started kicking in?



3. Hunger Games actress Willow Shields, who arrived in a Kate Spade-floral ensemble, got really enthusiastic when we asked her about the one song that gets her dancing when no one's watching. "I would dance to any song if nobody was watching," she said. "Right now, I have "Riptide" by Vance Joy. I've been listening to it for a while and now it's becoming really popular, which I'm excited about." 



4. After taking photos on the carpet, J. Lo was rushed into the venue — but not before giving a royal wave to fans and reporters, who were longing to have a few seconds with before the show started. 



5. While designer Steve Madden's look hasn't changed in years (a white tee and baseball cap), he noted that there's one part of his wardrobe that is different: "I think my jeans are baggier now." As for the musicians whose style he digs? "Iggy Azalea is great. I love T.I.'s music and his style. I like Ja Rule's style, too." Thanks Steve!



6. Justin Bieber prefaced the Calvin Klein (with the designer himself in the front row) fashion show by stripping down to his boxers, which were Calvins. Though he was welcomed by an overwhelming slew of boos from the audience, he started flexing, and the high-pitched screams drowned out the haters.



7. Afrojack told us he's a big fan of shoes — so big a fan that he owns more than 300 pairs. 



8. Before MAGIC! performed their breakout hit "Rude," the group was introduced by New York Giants' Victor Cruz, who also got a ton of boos — or did he? No way. The fashion and music crowd thought the sports fans were hating, but they were just chanting his last name. which apparently sounds less pleasant in an arena than a stadium.



9. Following her "Booty"-bouncing, black-and-white spectacle, Lopez — in a shimmering Versace silver minidress and high ponytail — received the longest post-performance applause and loudest cheers of the night.



10. As Nicki Minaj also touted her bum during "Anaconda" in denim shorts and an embellished bra, the cameras kept panning to a seated Lopez, who wasn't enthused by the former American Idol judge's performance as Carmen Electra, who was dancing in the audience. A noticeable-enough percentage of the crowd started to clear out of the arena after Minaj's moment.



11. Event sponsors Maybelline, Garnier, Calvin Klein and others hosted pop-up beauty booths and selfie stations around the arena lobby. Attendees were given lengthy program books with bios on each performer, plus beauty and style inspirations for each of the evening's genre. Garnier gave out facial scrub samples as guests scurried out to catch Ubers and subways.



The ratings were a bust … no pun intended. I wonder if they'll be another Fashion Rocks next year?

Donnie Kehr With Alexa Green




ALEXA DEBUTS --- We've seen literally hundreds of shows in our years of reportage; from glittering cabaret outings to soul-selling rock and roll, so we're fairly secure that when we see something really unique … we know and feel it. Last night we saw Alexa Green (at NYC’s 54 Below), from two West Coast productions of Wicked, and she totally astonished us. Petite and precocious, with sort of a Mae West-ish-ness about her, her voice was just totally unique and she totally delighted us. 



With a crack band (and, I mean really superlative) and an SRO-crowd (with Jersey Boys’ Donnie Kehr in attendance) she wowed the crowd over and over. The show was titled My Shining Hour (the Harold Arlen song with lyrics by Johnny Mercer), and was chock full of terrific song selections, including Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” and Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” 



She, and her director Mitchell Walker, have fashioned a tight, beautifully realized show. While performing one song, she'd often break into another … a tact which worked wonders; especially when she sang Harry Nilsson’s “Guess The Lord Music Be In New York City” interspersed with the Joel-song. 



She immediately commanded the crowd with a presence and dexterity that was totally impressive.



One of the best performances I've seen this year … no question, a star was born.





LED SCHLEP --- As Led Zeppelin's reps prepare to fight allegations that they stole the introduction to "Stairway to Heaven" from the Spirit song “Taurus,” they've turned to a top entertainment industry lawyer.



Business Week reports that attorney Helene Freeman, a partner at the New York firm Phillips Nizer, is on the case — and although Freeman may not be a household name, her work is very familiar to music business insiders; in fact, she was responsible for helping *NSYNC wrest themselves from their rookie recording contract in the late 90’s.



“Taurus” composer Randy California passed away in 1997 — founding Spirit bassist Mark Andes filed the suit on behalf of his late bandmate’s trust — but in an interview before he died, he publicly admitted to thinking “Stairway” ripped off his composition, calling it “kind of a sore point” and adding, “Maybe someday their conscience will make them do something about it.”



Businessweek’s report notes that Zeppelin’s lawyers have until Sept. 22 to respond to the suit. Neither Freeman nor anyone involved with the band or its corporate label parent, Warner Music, have responded to requests for comment, but as we previously reported, Zep-guitarist Jimmy Page has gone on record as finding the allegations “ridiculous.”



CLOSING NOTES --- Speaking of 54 Below, it was the first time I had been there and loved it. It’s intimate, the sound and sight lines were terrific and loads different than when I was there last … as the basement of the infamous Studio 54. Suffice to say, it did look a bit familiar …



Alt porn pioneer Joanna Angel is headed back to New York City as the star entertainer at Sapphire New York Gentlemen’s Club Friday, September 12th for one night only, with a stimulating live performance at 12 midnight, followed by a photo and autograph meet-and-greet with her fans.



“New York is home to me!” said Angel. “I want all my East Coast fans to come out for this one."



Angel will also have Burning Angel DVDs and her line of clothing and T-shirts available for purchase during the show.



In addition to feature dancing, Angel has been keeping busy, directing, writing and starring in her Burning Angel movies while also acting in mainstream films (this year’s indie drama Scrapper), hosting her weekly radio show on VividRadio.com and singing in her band Joanna Angel & the Gigolos.



"Sapphire is such a fun club; I always look forward to my appearances there,” said Angel. “I am only there for one night and I only have one performance – so don't miss it!”

US WEEKLY'S COVER 'LIFE AFTER THE HILLS'

Life After The Hills In Us Weekly



The cover of the new Us Weekly is all about “LIFE AFTER THE HILLS”. More than three years after the iconic MTV reality show ended, three of its female stars – Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari, and Heidi Montag – are in very different places. Lauren has been seen showing off her 2-carat ring and says a pal, “Lauren wants a big wedding!” Kristen is enjoying low-key married life and is expecting baby no. 2, while Heidi Montag has changed her body yet again. After two breast augmentations she has removed her size-F implants. “I didn’t realize what I was signing up for: It took me a year to recover,” she says. “I was too impulsive.” Spencer’s been taking care of her though. “He’s the best! He’s been taking care of the dogs and me,” she tells Us. “Starting over has been hard, but it’s made me and Spencer way closer. We’re the best we’ve ever been.”



Justin Bieber had a wild night in Brazil when he got caught out at a Brazilian brothel. Inside Centaurus – Rio de Janeiro’s most popular brothel – Bieber tried to stay under the radar. 45 potential dates were presented to Bieber before he and his crew decided to enjoy the company of two women with an overnight price tag of $1,200 each. Though they tried to bring the girls back to their Copacabana hotel, the escorts were turned away as “the hotel has a no-tolerance attitude towards escorts” and they brought back “two of the area’s most well-known prostitutes.”



Also in this week’s issue, Us Weekly’s Hot Stuff exclusively revealed that Gaga is going galactic. She’ll be the first artist to sing in outer space on the Virgin Galactic ship during the Zero G Colony tech festival. “She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere,” says a source who adds that the diva’s glam squad will join her in the shuttle. And just in case the force isn’t with the star the source adds, “Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!”

CELEBRITIES JOIN THE REAL CHANGE PROJECT

****
STARS WITH A HEART
****


The Real Change Project




REAL Change Productions today announced the debut of its upcoming, star-studded television special, which celebrates the grade-A individuals and groups dedicated to educating America’s youth. Dubbed The Real Change Project—Artists for Education, this one-hour program, in partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org and presenting sponsor Office Depot, combines celebrities with philanthropy, along with exclusive musical performances, touching one-on-one interviews and more.



Airing on April 23, Real Change convenes a class of international music superstars including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pitbull, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz, Quincy Jones and Glee star, Matthew Morrison, to revisit their hometown schools, introduce the teachers that inspired them and surprise some deserving students and organizations along the way.



While the celebrity roster reads like an honor roll of A-listers, the teachers will truly take the limelight of this telecast. Teaming up with AdoptAClassroom.org, Real Change’s celebrity guests will sponsor classrooms spanning from Miami to Nashville, highlighting the efforts of a special, select few teachers and telling their moving stories.



“Teachers are often the unsung heroes, while actors, musicians and pro athletes get all the praise. I’m willing to bet, though, that each one of us has had at least one teacher who changed our lives forever,” said Liam Murphy, Founder & CEO of REAL Change Productions and the son of two career public school teachers. “The goal of our show is to not only honor these teachers but to also inspire Americans to adopt a classroom and support those who are shaping the minds of tomorrow by providing the supplies that enable them to keep making a difference today.”



AdoptAClassroom.org seeks to empower teachers with the resources they need to outfit their classes and increase their students’ opportunity for success. Teachers are encouraged to participate by registering on the LiveRealChange.com website. Once selected by a donor, teachers have full discretion to use the money for whatever classroom items necessary.



LiveRealChange.com donors can pick the classroom of their choice knowing that 100% of their financial support will go toward the teacher and their students. In return, adopters receive feedback, including emails from the teacher and impact reports detailing how the donation was used, as well as the opportunity to visit the class and see the results firsthand.

Since announcing the end of her nearly three-year marriage to Jason Hoppy December 23, the Bravo star turned Skinnygirl magnate has been pushing their split along with the same tenacity that made her a multimillion-dollar businesswoman. Days before her glum brunch, the former Real Housewives of New York City star, 42, filed a summons for divorce, asking for primary custody of their daughter, Bryn, 2, as well as child support. “She doesn’t want to drag it out,” explains a Frankel friend. In turn, the typically passive Hoppy knows it’s time to join the fight. “He feels used — like she just wanted him for a baby,” says a pal of the pharmaceutical sales exec, 41. “He plans to ask her for a big payout.” Up until Frankel filed, Hoppy still believed they could repair their broken union. “He was hoping she was just going through a phase,” says a source. Though the pair inked a prenup days before their March 2010 wedding, Hoppy believes he still deserves a large payout, says a Hoppy friend. “He feels like he gave up his career for her. He basically stopped working to support her and wants to be compensated for it.”



Kim Kardashian




Also in the new issue of Us, Kim Kardashian discusses how she and baby-daddy, Kanye West, plan to handle parenthood. Kim discounts E!’s December 31 statement, in which the network president gushed, “We look forward to sharing the joy.” When asked on New Year’s Eve if she plans to put her baby on TV, she calmly told Us: “No.” Spotlight-loving Kim is even leery of a pricey “first look!” photo exclusive. “She doesn’t want the baby to be seen for the first six months,” says the Kim source. “She’s ready to dial back from being so public.” Still, the duo never thought they would start a family before Kim’s divorce from [Kris] Humphries was final. Per California law, Humphries is the presumed father since they have not yet been granted even a separation. If he were to make the claim he’s the dad, Kim would have to present convincing evidence, such as a DNA test. So marriage will have to wait, even with West “dying to propose,” says a source close to the rapper. While the thought of a Kardashian away from cameras may seem shocking, anything is possible, says Kim: “It’s a new year and a new beginning!”




SELENA AND JUSTIN: BROKEN UP FOR GOOD!


Justin Bieber



Gomez ditches Bieber during a vacation after a massive fight



Selena Gomez
He can sing “baby” all he wants: SELENA Gomez is not taking Justin Bieber back this time. Although the pop star, 18, and his on and- off girlfriend, 20, journeyed to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a New Year’s trip, their happy holiday was cut short when Gomez abruptly flew home to Los Angeles on December 30. “They had another huge fight, and Selena won’t forgive him,” an insider tells Hot Stuff. Another source explains, “They had mutual trust issues.” It certainly seems final this time. Gomez spent New Year’s Eve at an L.A. house party with some pals, then ominously tweeted on January 1, “New beginnings. Fresh start.” For his part, Bieber rang in 2013 with rapper buddy Lil Twist and flirted with various girls at L.A. club Couture. Bieber’s scandal-filled antics in the first days of the year — TMZ posted pictures of him smoking what appeared to be pot on January 2, one day after a paparazzo was killed chasing his Ferrari — won’t win him points with Team Gomez, either. “Her parents think he’s a bad influence on her,” says the insider. Adds a friend: “Selena is done with him.”



HUGH HEFNER: SECRETS OF THE PRENUP


Hugh Hefner



Crystal Harris
The bunny isn’t after his money! Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner, 86, and the December 2009 Playmate of the Month Crystal Harris, 26, signed an “ironclad” prenup that specified their December 31 marriage won’t change anything in his will — which doesn’t include her, a source tells Hot Stuff. Hefner’s estimated $43 million fortune is promised to “his children, the University of Southern California film school and a variety of charities,” the source continues. But Harris — who unexpectedly broke things off with the twice-married father of four in June 2011, five days before their first planned wedding — has made peace with Hefner’s plan. As the lingerie store owner gushed to Us just days before the two got married, “Our relationship is better than ever. Things are perfect.” Maybe she’s a girl next door after all.

JUSTIN AND MILEY'S CAREER WOULD BE GONE

****
THIS AND THAT

Bitching By: James Edstrom

Justin Bieber




Just some insight on the death of celebrity photographer identified by TMZ as Chris Guerra.


First of all, why is it when you are a celebrity photographer you are always identified as a troublesome paparazzi?  If you were driving by and were from NBC or ABC, would you be called a dangerous TV cameraman? I do not think so. You are there to report the news, this is your job.


Over the years I have been on many stakeouts and several chases which were always started by the celebrity. I remember years ago, when Julia Roberts lived in Gramacy Park and she had just gotten engaged or something like that. Every news media outlet was outside her home, Including all the big networks. We were there for days, she was news and everyone wanted to report on this story. Finally she came out, refused to pose for two seconds and flew away in her limo. Everyone followed, not just because they wanted to report a news story, but because all Julia had to do was pose for two seconds and everyone would have run back to their newsroom, but she did not even give the press the courtesy. A chase ensured and it was Julia's limo driver who went down one way streets the wrong way. In fact, it is almost always the story that the driver of the celebrity creates dangerous conditions. A couple of photographers got hurt in that chase, not because of their actions, but because of her driver.


Now everyone is pulling up the old Princess Diana death. I was the first one to say on 60 Minutes the day Diana died that it sounded like the driver was drunk. This proved to be the case. The driver also was traveling at high speeds. Yet everyone always brings up that the paparazzi killed her. This is so untrue.


Let me tell you something about Princess Diana. When she came to New York City we got 20 page tip sheets from the Palace press people. We were told where she was staying, where she was going and how we were expected to act. Princess Diana loved publicity and she used the media just as much as the media used her. It was a two way street and everyone knew it.


I have seen main stream television crews do worse things than the paparazzi. I have seen them chase, climb fences and anything else to get the story. But no one ever mentions this, because they are considered upper-class, compared to the photographers. Celebrity Photographers are the best news sources when a big story hits. Where main stream media will spend a hour broadcasting live from the scene, photographers will spend days to get the real story, and then the mainstream media will pick up on all the photographers work. 


Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus used the media before they were famous to get press. When we gave them the press, they become impossible to photograph anymore and look down on us like we are scum. What would happen if every photographer and writer in the media decided to not photograph and write about them anymore? I can tell you. Their records and videos would not sell anymore and their career would be finished.



What would happen if we boycotted a big movie star and did not write or photograph his premieres? The answer is that the movie star would not get paid the big bucks anymore and his career would be finished. The media makes these people stars, it's not just their talent. 



STATEMENT FROM JUSTIN BIEBER




"While I was not present nor directly involved with this tragic accident, my thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim," the "Boyfriend" singer said in statement.

Bieber said he hoped the incident "will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders, and the photographers themselves."



STATEMENT FROM MILEY CYRUS


Singer Miley Cyrus, 20, a frequent paparazzi target, sent out Twitter messages, referencing the death of Britain's Princess Diana in a 1997 car crash while being chased by paparazzi in Paris.

"Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in '13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn't Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!" Cyrus tweeted.


"This was bound to happen! Your mom teaches u when your a child not to play in the street! The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices," Cyrus added.


 Well Justin and Miley, think about it if we all decide not to cover you anymore. You will be finished!
