14 July 2010



Well, you had to see this one coming. Bluewater Productions, the very same folks responsible for the unauthorized comic book biographies of Lady Gaga and the Twilight cast, have announced the latest subject of their “Fame” series: preternaturally shaggy 16-year-old pop sensation Justin Bieber.
Here’s how Bluewater describes the October-shipping comic:

FAME: Justin Bieber
Author(s): Tara Broeckel Ooten
Artist(s): Claudio Avella
Cover Artist(s): Michal Szyksznian

“Like The Beatles, Justin Bieber started life in simple public housing, and also like The Beatles, he is forced to balance fame with his humble beginnings as he comes of age with the whole world screaming his name. Fame: Justin Bieber traces the career of this Youtube sensation from his musical childhood in Ontario to the stage of his first headlining tour.”
Looks like cover artist Michal Szyksznian might not exactly be suffering from Bieber Fever, though. From the artist’s DeviantArt page: “Portrait of the new antichrist Justin Bieber for the cover of his bio comic book from BlueWater Productions (October 2010).”

Bluewater’s Lady Gaga comic didn’t exactly receive the most favorable reviews, but it certainly attracted a lot of press for the publisher. Gaga’s bio was told from the perspective of an obsessed fan, so who knows what narrative approach they might take with the Bieber comic? Perhaps an omniscient Greek chorus in the collective form of his 3.7 million Twitter followers?

Justin Bieber has once again made upward advances on the Billboard 200 chart this week. As the numbers were released today by Nielsen SoundScan, both Lady Gaga and the Biebz have seen how summer performances have increased album sales.

As Justin continues touring the country on his My World tour, the teen pop star has seen increased popularity in his "My World 2.0 album." Justin's album jumped up 2 spots last week with sales of over 41,000 copies. This week, he is up one spot into the No. 5 position. His sales increased by 4% as fans purchased over 43,000 copies of the album.

I've been running this site by myself this whole time and I think it's time for a change.

You don't have to know too much about html,
just the basics and I can teach you slowly.
The most important part is the sense of humor.  :D

And to everyone who applied before please apply again.

Thank you, Daisy.

I came across a stalkerish amateur video taken by someone who happened to drive by Pinkberry in LA while JB was there with Kim Kardashian. That's not a big deal but what is is the fact that stupid websites like this one keep trying to taunt his fans. This time by not only asking us when we think they will finally kiss with tongues, but by also referring to Beliebers as bat-shit-crazy.

The last time 29-year-old Kim Kardashian took 16-year-old Justin Bieber on a date she ended up getting inundated with death threats - via Twitter obviously - from the tween sensation’s bat-shit crazy adoring fans.

Oddly enough though the experience didn’t seem to deter Kim from going on another “date” (yeah we’re not sure what they do when they go out together either) with Bieber again; earlier this week the pair were spotted enjoying a cosy outing at Pinkberry in LA. How many dates before he finally gets a kiss with tongues we wonder?

A script similar to Eminem’s 8 Mile is in the works for the teen singing sensation!

When Justin Bieber professed his desire to be a major movie star just three months ago, he couldn’t have known his wish was about to come true. But guess what, BFFs? The Biebster is about to become a movie star!

HollywoodLife.com can exclusively confirm that a script similar to the 2002 film 8 Mile is in development – and close to completion! “There currently isn’t a final script, but just like Eminem did in 8 Mile, Justin will star!” an industry insider tells us.
There’s one catch, though. Given JB’s small stature, studio execs are joking that the upcoming film “should be called 4 Mile, or Half Mile,” laughed our insider.

The Biebster first professed his desire to star in a movie to Teen Vogue back in April, telling the magazine, “We’re trying to set up a movie for me in the near future—it’s going to be similar to the story of how I got discovered – kinda like my own version of 8 Mile.”

So what should you expect from the 16-year-old singer’s feature? Eminem’s 2002 art-imitating-life flick was about a young rapper growing up in Detroit, including his alcoholic mom issues, struggle with drugs and burgeoning career.

If Justin’s film is similar to HIS life, expect to see Biebs reveal his loneliness at growing up with a single mom, his tough life on the streets in Canada (we kid) and how, after promoting himself shamelessly on YouTube, Usher and Justin Timberlake fought tooth and nail for the young singer. Oh yeah, and Kim Kardashian should totally cameo!

Justin Bieber is totally cool with the Jonas Brothers. We repeat, it's all good. However, magazines and websites are constantly pitting the Canadian pop star against the trio, and Nick Jonas in particular.

In response to an article in the August issue of J-14 article entitled 'Nick and Justin: From Enemies to BFFs,' the 16-year-old singer wrote: "There is no beef here. @nickjonas is a real good dude...and we have a epic ping pong battle coming."

At 17, Nick is the youngest of the Disney group, so it's no wonder why the media is always comparing the two stars. However, the Les Miserables actor is still about one year and six months older than Justin.

In June, Justin joked with Top of the Pops magazine, saying he could take all three Jonas Brothers in a fight, but the remark was all to make light of the reported fan feud. "Supposedly there's a war between my fans and Jonas Brothers fans, but basically we're all friends," he said. "I love you all, but why do you guys have to fight?"

We agree. Justin says he's cool with Nick and the Jo Bros. That should be the end of it.
