Gossip: Bieber clarifies birthday party fiasco

Justin Bieber is taking issue with reports that he had the “worst birthday” — as he referred to Friday’s celebration via Twitter — because some of his friends were barred entry to the nightclub where he was celebrating. “The funny moment when people believe I brought underage people to a club,” Bieber says in a post on Instagram. “I love how the club wanted to give the press another reason to why we didn’t stay at their weak-ass club so they wouldn’t look bad for me walking in and right back out.” As for what was behind his enigmatic two-word tweet? “I said ‘worst birthday,’ but that was due to dummies pushing over my fans and being overly aggressive,” he writes. “It wasn’t the worst birthday because all my friends from back home flew in. I was just mad in the moment.”

While Justin Bieber deals with a disappointing 19th birthday, he’s drawing the ire of at least one famous actress for his penchant for walking around topless. “Bieber, put your f—ing shirt on,” Olivia Wilde tweeted, adding, “unless you lost all your shirts in a fire, in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.” Bieber was most recently spotted sans shirt last week after a concert in Birmingham, England.

Charlie Sheen is continuing his quest to help Lindsay Lohan in her time of need, this time offering up his services as a mentor for the troubled starlet. “I have a kinship with somebody who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not,” Sheen tells TMZ. “She can continue to hang out with her dress-shredding club buddies or turn to me for some advice from a guy who’s been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey.”

Ben Affleck is used to a certain amount of paparazzi attention, but sometimes enough is enough — like late last week when some photographers got too close for comfort around Affleck and his 4-year-old daughter, Seraphina. The paparazzi reportedly swarmed the father and daughter outside of her school, according to Us Weekly. “She was asking for them to stop,” a source says, adding that Affleck asked them numerous times to back off. “The paps said they needed to be ‘that close.’”

Clearly receiving an Oscar statue for “Skyfall” gave Adele some ideas. Back home in London after last week’s Academy Awards, the singer posted a photo to Twitter of her Best Song Oscar alongside a smaller replica award that read “Best Son,” a souvenir she picked up for her baby boy, born in October. “Thanks for having us, Hollywood,” she wrote along with the photo.
