Officials at five Norwegian schools have reportedly rescheduled their midterm exams so as not to coincide with a pair of Justin Bieber concerts later this month, according to Fox News. The school officials were apparently concerned that holding the exams in conflict with the April 16 and 17 concerts would lead to students skipping the tests in favor of seeing Bieber. The singer himself apparently approves, tweeting a link to the news with the comment, “Love this.”

Amanda Bynes celebrated her 27th birthday in New York earlier this week by exhibiting some “bizarre” behavior, eyewitnesses tell E! News. Bynes was browsing for pipes in a market in flip-flops, sweatpants and a loose wig over her long hair. “She had this shoulder-length mousy wig and then all the hair was hanging out underneath. It was bizarre. She looked homeless,” the eyewitness says, adding that Bynes raised more eyebrows upon leaving the store: “She was crossing into traffic, wasn’t waiting for any of the lights to change, and a cab almost hit her twice.” For those keeping track, Bynes has been spotted with fading red dye in her hair, even though she previously claimed that shots of her with red hair were of an imposter.

Angelina Jolie, Robert De Niro and Lady Gaga are reportedly some of the latest celebrities to fall victim to hacking, with personal data ranging from social security numbers to credit scores to addresses appearing online, according to TMZ. The FBI is no investigating the site, which has since gone offline and is said to be run out of Madagascar. The same site popped up a few weeks ago publishing information on Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Mel Gibson and others before quickly being taken down. No arrests have been made so far.

Ben Affleck‘s remarks during his Academy Awards acceptance speech that his marriage to Jennifer Garner is “work” raised a few eyebrows, but Garner insists everything is fine. “I know. I had a friend call and say, ‘Are you OK?’” Garner tells the Telegraph. “I know Ben, I knew he meant it as the hugest, warmest compliment in the world. I think he was saying, ‘Look, what we have is really real and I value it above all and I’m in it with you and I know you are in it with me.’ That’s the way I took it.”

Donald Trump has dropped his $5 million lawsuit against Bill Maher — which started over Maher’s insistence that he would donate that amount of money to charity if Trump could prove he’s not the son of an orangutan — but that doesn’t mean the suit is history. “The lawsuit was withdrawn to be amended and refiled at a later date,” Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, tells E! News. Maher made his initial challenge to Trump after the “Apprentice” boss publicly offered to donate $5 million to charity if Barack Obama would produce his original birth certificate.
