Justin Bieber and Glee Hottest Toys This Holiday
Attention, Santa's helpers! Toys "R" Us has announced this season's hottest toy trends, and what a surprise, they're TV and web sensations -- but we're not talking about PBS and Nick characters. This holiday season, it's all about "Glee" and Justin Bieber.

"Our hottest new toys tie straight into the new and trendy TV shows and mega stars like Justin," Lisa Harnisch, vice president and divisional merchandise manager for Toys "R" Us, tells ParentDish. "Glee Karaoke is another example of an innovative toy straight from popular culture."

Topping the must-have wish list for Santa is a squeezable and singing action figure of teenage heartthrob Bieber ($23.99) and Glee Karaoke System ($69.99), based on the Fox TV hit.

The mega toy retailer announced its 2010 holiday toy trends today, which include the comeback of 18-inch, big-sized dolls, cute collectibles, toys from around the world, technology-innovated versions of the classic train set and a new twist on the decades-old fave Creepy Crawlers ($29.99).

JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- Justin Bieber of Jacksonville has had his share of problems having the same name as the very popular young singer.

Now it has caused him to be kicked off Facebook, the popular social network website, saying it's because he has a fake name. He is trying to contact Facebook to get reinstated, but is finding it very difficult.

This is just another of a long list of problems being Justin Bieber, who lives in a quiet Southside neighborhood.

Bieber said it is a little hard to sleep at night when the phone rings constantly, and that happened when teens got his phone number. He changed his number, put it in his wife's name, but teens got it again and put it on a fan website and he got even more calls, sometimes getting 50 messages in two hours. He finally just unplugged the phone and told friends and family to call him on his cell.

He still gets anywhere from two to ten 10 fan letters a day. "It's not so bad, it does not keep me awake at night, but I feel bad for little girls who want to send messages to their hero and it gets to this (pointing to himself)," said Bieber. "I wish some of those fan letters had checks made out to Justin Bieber."

The Jacksonville Justin Bieber is an admitted arcade geek and collects, and plays, pin ball machines with friends. He is no singer, but well known singers have called him. "Artists saying, 'I am going to be working with you this weekend.' I say, 'no you're not, you don't want to sing with me,'" said Bieber.

As for Facebook, he was on there for six months, when with no warning or email, his account was disabled. "I guess their policy is ban first, ask questions never." He got kicked off another social network, Ping, which is affiliated with iTunes, but that was resolved finally.

"One thing that has come out of this is now everyone can actually say my name. Before everyone said Justin Byber," said Bieber. "I do get a lot of giggles when I swipe my card at the store. The usual response is, 'Oh you poor thing.'"

Justin Bieber calls Robert Pattinson his perfect wingman


Little Justin Bieber has a lot to learn about pulling women.

He reckons his perfect "wingman" in a club would be Robert Pattinson. Schoolboy error, Just! You're meant to take your ugly mate.

He says: "I love talking to girls and going on dates. My ideal wingman would be Robert Pattinson. We should go to a few showbiz parties and see what happens." I think we can guess... Biebs, below, carries on: "He landed back in LA last week, so maybe we can go and work some of the magic.

The girls go crazy for him over here but I have a big thing for English girls so maybe we could hit a couple of parties in London as well."

The Baby singer and his Twilight pal, left, have been working on their lines.

Says Just: "Robert says his hair is a great ice-breaker, so maybe we can go up to girls and be, like, 'Do you wanna touch our hair?' How about that for an opening line?" To be honest, Just, they won't care what you say...
