Justin Bieber Parties in Strip Club



Justin Bieber reportedly partied in a strip club in Houston, Texas, on Friday night (18.10.13).
The ‘Heartbreaker’ hitmaker, who split from Selena Gomez earlier this year, allegedly left one of the professional dancers in the club, VLive, in ”shock” after grabbing her butt.
Known as DiamondsR4Ever, she tweeted on Saturday (19.10.13): ”@justinbieber went The Fuk In Tonight!!
”He Touched My Ass I Almost Fainted!
”He Was Like Its Real!! (sic)”
She added: ”I’ve Danced For A lot Of Celebrities And They Normally Don’t Phase Me But Justin just Had Me In Shock!
”I am now a @justinbieber Fan”
The dancer also claimed that Justin was partying at the club with boxer Floyd Mayweather, 36, and hinted the duo were extremely generous.
She wrote: ”S/O (Shout out) to @FloydMayweather Too!! MoneyTeam went In!!”
The Canadian singer, 19, has sparked controversy for partying in over-21s nightclubs in recent months.
The ‘Beauty And A Beat’ singer’s mother Pattie Mallette recently admitted she finds it ”difficult” to let him make his own mistakes.
She said: ”When your kids hit a certain age your parenting style changes and it is hard letting go.
”His life was my life and now I’ve had to let him go a little bit and let him be independent. It is hard to not be able to control everything that your adult child does.”

Selena Gomez Cuts Interview Short Over Justin Bieber Question

Pop star Selena Gomez cut short an interview with a U.S. reporter after he asked about her relationship with troubled singer Justin Bieber.

The singer/actress was chatting to correspondent Dean Richards on America’s WGN Entertainment network on Monday when he mentioned Bieber’s recent headline-grabbing antics.

He said, “You’re… probably as close a friend to Justin Bieber as they come. Is there something about him that we don’t get or we don’t understand? I mean, there is one story after another of… pretty outrageous behaviour that we’re reading about.”

Gomez, who was appearing on the show via videolink, refused to answer the question and looked off camera to an aide, before the screen suddenly went blank.

The brunette recently sparked fresh reports of a reconciliation with the Baby hitmaker after previously splitting last year.

Bieber has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent months, showing up hours late for several gigs and falling out with his neighbors in California, while he has also faced allegations he spat in a DJ’s face and urinated in a restaurant’s mop bucket.

Cher, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Pitbull to perform on ‘Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular’

NBC just added Cher, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Pitbull to its lineup of performers on the “Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” airing Thursday at 8 p.m. ET with an encore at 10 p.m.

They join previously announced performers Mariah Carey (“American Idol”) and country singer Tim McGraw. Carey’s husband, “America’s Got Talent” host Nick Cannon, will host the two-hour special.

Cher also recently performed on the season finale of NBC’s “The Voice” and appeared on sister cable network Bravo’s late night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live.” Her upcoming album, “Woman’s World,” is out on September 24.

Swift is currently touring North America in support of her album, “Red.” Gomez is promoting her newly released album, “Stars Dance,” and is set to start a tour in August. Pitbull’s single with Christina Aguilera, “Feel This Moment,” is a Top 10 hit.

With more than 40,000 fireworks, the show is the largest pyrotechnics display in the United States. This year, Usher (“The Voice”) will lend his artistic vision to the show as its first superstar collaboration.

Justin Bieber Bans Selena Gomez Music From Photoshoot Set


Pop star Justin Bieber has banned music by his on/off girlfriend Selena Gomez from his photoshoot playlist.
The couple split late last year (12), but rumours of a romantic reunion emerged in March (13) after Bieber paid a visit to Gomez’s Los Angeles home, and in April (13) she flew out to Norway to support the 19 year old during his European tour.
The stars have since reaffirmed their single status and now Bieber has forbidden staffers from playing any of the beauty’s music in his presence.
Editors at TMZ.com have obtained a copy of one of the superstar’s riders, which forbids personnel from asking for photographs, speaking to Bieber and blasting any tunes recorded by his ex during photoshoots.
The document also lists items to be included in the pop hunk’s dressing room, such as a large pack of Swedish Fish candies and two pairs of white socks.

American Idol Bosses Want Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez As Judges

American Idol’s lagging ratings has producers planning to replace Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey and Keith Urban with a “dream team” of new judges, according to RadarOnline.com. Their ideal team allegedly consists Justin Bieber, Pink, Selena Gomez and Diddy.

“It’s been a lackluster season for Idol and everyone involved with the show is well aware of it so that’s why producers are frantically working on lining up big name stars for season 14,” an insider tells Radar.

“The judges don’t have real chemistry, and there’s no real standout contestant,” explains the source. “That’s why they want to go big next season, and you can’t get any bigger than Justin Bieber. The executives are calling it their dream team because who wouldn’t tune in to see Justin and Selena, Pink and Diddy? Pink has been approached in the past and turned it down as well as Diddy, who wanted too much money. It will cost a fortune to get them, but the show has gotten so stale that Fox is desperate for a revamp – they’re willing to pay to put Idol back on top.”

Minaj, Carey and Urban have not commented on the rumors. Jackson confirmed his departure on Thursday in a statement to Us Weekly magazine. “Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol I have decided it is time to leave after this season,” he said. “I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity, but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.”

Idol made its debut in 2002 with Jackson, Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul as judges. Abdul left the show in 2009 and Cowell left in 2010.

Selena Gomez Travels To Norway To Be With Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber apparently can’t let go of their relationship. This week, Gomez traveled to Oslo, Norway to attend Bieber’s concert. She reportedly touched down as the show was beginning and was waiting backstage at Telenor Arena when Bieber finished.

“They have a crazy connection. They just can’t seem to break their connection. It can be intense,” a source tells Us Weekly magazine.

Gomez, 20, and Bieber, 19, called it quits in January. About a month later Gomez was photographed leaving Bieber’s L.A. home following an overnight stay. “It never ends,” an insider told Us Weekly at the time. “We’ll see. It’s such drama with them.”

In March, Gomez confirmed the breakup in an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. “…I’m single. I’m so good,” the Spring Breakers actress said.

Bieber was spotted at her home later that month.
