These days, it's a surprise to wake up and not find a surprising story about Justin Bieber. The latest incident involves Canada's boy king receiving a less-than-friendly reception at the Fashion Rocks event in New York earlier this week and responding by stripping down to his underwear in some bizarre misapplication of the fight or flight instinct. Bieber was introducing singer Rita Ora alongside model Lara Stone when the crowd turned on him and he responded by bearing nearly all. "Is that better?" he asked. Justin, if you have to ask …
Here's an interesting development in Taylor Swift's Frenemy-gate. Suspiciously soon after news spread of Swift's explanation that her track "Bad Blood" was about a pop contemporary whom she thought she could trust, Katy Perry took to Twitter with a "Mean Girls" reference, posting, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing." And let's just say we knew she was trouble when she tweeted that.

Stefani gives baby news via email
Because of her busy schedule, Gwen Stefani had to inform husband Gavin Rossdale via email that she was pregnant with their third child, Rossdale reveals to Howard Stern during an interview. "I got this email on the road, from Gwen, and the title was in capitals, 'Look what you did to me now,'" Rossdale says. "I was like, 'What is this?' My blood pressure went through the roof.

Without them you're just a musician with a couple of ideas but with them, that is the thing that changes everything when they get involved, your little idea can become something." Yes, something a lot of people will download.
Cara Delevingne declares her love for bacon where it counts
Cara Delevingne's love of bacon apparently outweighs her aversion to horrific pain, as the model revealed a new tattoo dedicated to the most delicious food ever … on the bottom of her foot. Delevingne posted an Instagram photo of the new tat along with the caption "It happened" — which, come to think of it, could be the caption for every post on Instagram. The tattoo, by the way, is just the word bacon with an ellipsis after. I do love me some good, well-placed punctuation, so good on you, Cara.
