The clock is ticking on Justin Bieber’s career, according to top music manager Peter Mensch, who reps acts like Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Mensch doesn’t see much of a future for the Canadian pop star after a month of hospitalizations, canceled concerts and dust-ups with the paparazzi. “His manager, Scooter Braun, is scared s—less. I don’t know what Bieber’s problem is. His career is over in three years anyway,” Mensch tells the Sun. “I’d take Bieber to the woodshed and spank him.”

Joan Rivers rivers is doubling down on her criticisms of Adele’s weight. Asked during a HuffPost Live chat to defend a joke she made at the British singer’s expense during a “Late Show with David Letterman” appearance, Rivers took things even further. “It’s not mean. She’s a chubby lady who’s very, very rich, and she should just calm down — or lose weight,” Rivers replied. “She wanted an apology, so I took an ad out on her ass. I said, ‘You are not fat.’ And then I had room for a lot of other ads. Adele is beautiful and successful and has what, $100 million? Let’s face reality: She’s fat!”
