Uh-oh, Justin Bieber fans. The teen heartthrob's 3-D concert-movie extravaganza has hit a roadblock: Oscar-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim has reportedly dropped out.

According to Deadline.com, the "Inconvenient Truth" director withdrew from the Paramount Pictures project Tuesday night to concentrate on promoting Sundance darling "Waiting for Superman." Paramount is said to already be interviewing directors to take over the project.

Joining the ear-splitting, teen concert-film ranks — which includes "Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert" and "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience" — Bieber will play himself in what is described as a "feature biopic." Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, and Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid will produce, and a release date is currently set for February 11, 2011 — Valentine's Day weekend.

When the news about the Bieber movie broke, the 16-year-old took to Twitter to express his enthusiasm: "Next Valentine's we r coming with a major 3D movie telling the story with an Oscar winning director and also filming the tour at MSG in NYC!!" He followed that up with, "This is so sick!! Gonna come out in theaters worldwide Valentine's 2011!!! I'm taking this thing worldwide thanks to u all!! Hyped!!"

Bieber has yet to tweet an update about the director news.



God that Shaq is one big and funny dude. I would be scared if I ever met him.
Oh! You can't really see it but he fell over at the end. hahaha
The bigger they come, the harder they fall.



With a 3-D movie about his life in the works, fans will get a sneak peek at Justin Bieber's acting abilities when he makes his network TV acting debut on the "CSI" season premiere next month. It turns out, Justin, a longtime fan of the show, really wanted a part on the series.

"I got a call that Justin really was a fan of 'CSI' [and] that's all I have to hear, and so it just was perfect timing," executive producer Carol Mendelsohn told MTV News about casting the singer in the September 23 episode. "Justin was looking to make his dramatic acting debut. We had an incredible role for a young actor in [our season premiere], so it just seemed like the perfect marriage."

Bieber showed up on set for one day of work, and he managed to impress everyone in the cast with his work ethic. He is part of one very juicy story arc that will likely have viewers coming back later in the season to see what happens next. (Justin shoots again later on in the season for an episode set to air in February.)

"There was one day that Justin had available and that was the day he came to 'CSI' and filmed his four scenes for the premiere," she continued. "We will introduce his character in the premiere in September and then it will be a character arc and we will see him again playing Jason McCann again in February."

In a photo tweeted by Bieber, his character is seen handcuffed. So why the cuffs? Well, we got some answers from Mendelsohn.

"He's a troubled young man, raised in the foster-care system, whose hard-luck life has left him scarred and angry," she explained. "When we first meet Jason, we meet him at a community center where he's giving a testimonial in honor of a man who takes Jason and his older brother in when they had no one else, and that man is now in jail and Jason's brother is out for revenge and looking for payback.

"And the CSIs are looking for the brother and Jason is caught in the middle," Mendelsohn teased. "At the end of the episode, we're left with the question: Is Jason a good kid stuck in a bad situation or is Jason a bad kid hiding behind his cuteness? You can see why Justin was such a perfect choice to play this role. ... It's an explosive story."

Are you excited for Justin to appear on "CSI"? Tell us in the comments!

Interesting. Doesn't sound like the tantrum Life & Style reported the other day.

Hey guys,

The thing about this website is that it is huge and takes a long time to load. So this past weekend we made some upgrades to the site to take advantage of the newest technology and to make it better and faster. Tests were run on all the browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, & Internet Explorer) and everything seems to work out perfectly.

Although everything looks fine on our end, a couple of you have notified us that you have a problem viewing some videos and reading some articles (you probably are using an outdated browser). So in order to help us help you, please let us know (by leaving a comment on the particular post) which articles or videos you are not able to see and what browser you are using and we will try to find out what exactly is the problem and fix it.

A better solution is to update your browser to Google Chrome (same as Safari). It's the newest and hands-down the best browser available because it not only makes your screen look bigger, but everything is clearer with more detail and best of all websites will load twice as fast. It's true. :) Try it out for 5 minutes and you will feel the difference immediately.

Also I want to take this opportunity to welcome Maddie, Deasha, and Blakie to JBShrine. They are now a part of our family and hopefully having this blog run by a 13, 16, 19, and 21 year old Belieber will make it even more fun as we will definitely have different point of views and opinions.

Welcome Guys!!

And if you have any comments or questions about anything at all, please leave a comment below.
