Gossip: Justin Bieber is booed in London

Justin Bieber‘s troublesome stay in London continued this week when he got a late start at his first show at the O2 Arena, courting boos from an angry, impatient audience, according to the BBC. “I never have any intent to upset or let anyone down, and I’m not OK with things being exaggerated,” Bieber tweeted after the show. “Last night I was scheduled after three opening acts to go on stage at 9:35, not 8:30, but because of some technical issues i got on at 10:10, so I was 40 minutes late to [the] stage. There is no excuse for that and I apologize for anyone we upset.”

Taylor Swift has some news for everyone keeping track of her love life. “If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” she tells Vanity Fair, referring to high schooler Conor Kennedy and One Direction member Harry Styles. “The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with, it’s just kind of ridiculous.” But she doesn’t let all the talk get to her. “One of these things I say to myself to calm myself down when I feel like it’s all too much … if there’s a pregnancy rumor rumor, people will find out it’s not true when you wind up not pregnant,” she says. “And if there’s a house rumor, they’ll find out it’s not true when you are actively not ever spotted at that house.”

Kate Winslet says the period between her marriage to Sam Mendes — which ended in 2010 — and her December wedding with Ned Rocknroll has been a great period of self-discovery. “I’ve really learned a great deal about myself, in the last four years in particular,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar UK. “I think I can see more clearly now — about how the pattern of past experiences has shaped who I am, and the character I have played — and I’m grateful for that. I gave so much more material to draw on for work — rubble, bricks — and I know I can carry it now.”

Alec Baldwin‘s new wife, Hilaria Baldwin, is over the moon about being pregnant with the couple’s first child, but she’s learning already that there are some areas where she and her famous husband don’t see eye to eye — like when it comes to potential baby names. “[Alec] had the idea for Massimo the other day,” Hilaria tells Rachael Ray during a visit to her television show. “It’s a lovely name, I just don’t know. That’s a very big name for a little baby.” She’d rather wait until the tyke arrives before settling on something. “I think you actually have to look at it once it pops out and say, ‘Who are you? What is your name?’” she says.

Ten years after their films’ releases, Andy and Lana Wachowski are facing a lawsuit claiming the plots for the “Matrix” sequels, “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions,” were stolen, according to E! News. Hawaii-based writer Thomas Althouse is suing the Wachowskis along with producer Joel Silver and Warner Bros. for copyright infringement in federal court claiming, claiming the two films were “based and formulated in substantial part” upon his 1993 screenplay, “The Immortals,” which he claims was submitted through his attorney to the Hollywood studio at the time. Althouse says the delay in filing suit is because he did not actually see the sequels until 2010. Warner Bros. hasn’t responded to requests for comment.
