POP sensation Justin Bieber will have bodyguards on and off stage at tonight’s Golden Globes – to keep cruel Ricky Gervais at bay.
The 16-year-old superstar, who has six million followers on Twitter, has been lined up to present an award at the film bash in Los Angeles.
Brit comic Ricky, 49, is hosting the event for the second year running.But after his wild performance last year, in which he poked fun at stars including Sir Paul McCartney, Mel Gibson, Angelina Jolie and Steve Carell, the A-listers are on red alert.
And none more than young Justin who plans to avoid The Office star before he hits the stage – in case he gives Ricky any ammo for jokes.
He showed up at Friday’s Critics Choice Movie Awards sporting a fake moustache and glasses...but to keep Ricky at arm’s length tonight he will be surrounded by a team of minders backstage before the ceremony begins.
And when he does present a gong, Justin will be accompanied by his newly muscle-bound actor pal Zac Efron to deflect any gags at his expense.
Our Golden Globes source said:
“Justin is very concerned about being the butt of Ricky’s jokes.
“The organisers were asked not to let him have to go on the stage alone and face Ricky – hence Zac Efron’s appearance alongside him.
“And his team are not going to let him anywhere near Justin when he is backstage.
“In fact it looks as if Justin will arrive at the last possible time to keep out of Ricky’s way!
“He’s petrified of being made to look a fool. Let’s face it, Ricky wouldn’t spare him just because he’s a kid!”
Last year, controversial Ricky sparked gasps from the star-packed audience with his opening line: “Looking at all the faces here makes me remember all the great work that’s been done this year by cosmetic surgeons.”
Later he got personal, appearing on stage for one link with a beer saying: “I like a drink as much as the next man…unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”
Stars up for gongs include Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Brit Colin Firth, whose movie The King’s Speech leads the way with seven nominations.
Justin Bieber experienced a lot of stress this past Wednesday. His girlfriend, Selena Gomez, had her Twitter account hacked, where an angry fan wrote, “Oh yeh, JUSTIN BIEBER SUCKS!!!!” Many of Bieber’s somewhat obsessive fans have not been happy with his relationship with the slightly older Gomez.
Bieber was set to guest star on CSI, but he could not complete filming on Wednesday. The set panicked as Bieber began to experience an allergic reaction. One of his rep’s told Life & Style Magazine that he “was having trouble breathing due to an allergic reaction.” Bieber was quickly taken to the hospital.
Bieber’s personal physician met him there. Fortunately, the situation was not serious. Bieber only stayed at the hospital for 30 minutes before being discharged.
His rep confirmed to Life & Style that Bieber was indeed OK, sending a wave of relief through his many fans. Bieber is set to present an award at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
Bieber will star in three CSI episodes this season. “Shock Wave” and “Targets of Obsession” have already aired, but one more yet untitled episode will soon be released. Bieber plays the young character, Jason McCann.
Despite his large fake moustache and big glasses, Justin Bieber wasn't fooling anyone as he made his red carpet reporting debut at the Critics' Choice Awards. Perhaps he should have changed his distinctive brushed forward hairstyle if he was going to stay incognito. The 16-year-old Canadian-born singer wore his disguise throughout the evening as he conducted a series of celebrity interviews at the Hollywood ceremony on Friday.
Master of disguise: Justin Bieber was fooling no-one in a large moustache and glasses at the Critics' Choice Awards in Hollywood on Friday.
Wearing a bow tie over a black shirt and jeans, the singer seemed a natural as he spoke to the likes of Tim Roth, John Legend and Elle Fanning.
'I can't believe I just got interviewed by Justin Bieber,' Elle told VH-1 on the red carpet. At one point, the star couldn't resist showing off some of his signature dance moves as he waited for his next interview on the carpet.
He seemed to be enjoying his disguise, later tweeting: ' if u cant laugh at yourself u cant have fun.'
