Entertainment Media Gang Tackle Justin Bieber Over Anne Frank House Guest Book Comments

TMZ has always had the best weekend PR pipeline into folks like Justin Bieber. Sure enough, the website has an update this morning at the bottom of a snarky take on the Anne Frank could-have-been-a-Belieber furor. It reads:

A source connected to Bieber contacted TMZ and said the Biebs spent a full hour in the museum learning about Anne Frank. One of the things he learned was that she was really into the pop culture of the time. The source says that is why he wrote his “Belieber” comment.

This is very true. This morning for example, New York Post film critic Lou Lumenick reminded via Twitter that Frank had a picture of Hollywood actress Deanna Durbin affixed on the attic wall.

Teen Vogue Goes with Two Justin Bieber Covers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Teen Vogue
is looking to capitalize off of Justin Bieber’s hormonal outbursts of late by publishing two covers featuring the pop artist. Not only does Bieber show off his hilarious hair (pro tip my man: Dylan McKay did it better) but inside, WWD reports that he reminds everyone that he’s Justin Bieber, so he does what he wants.

“I don’t need to address every speculation,” he explains. “Remember when Cam’ron dissed Jay-Z? Jay-Z didn’t even respond. Why didn’t he respond, because he’s Jay-Z.”

Stop it.

Trailer O’ the Day: Sellebrity

Just caught this trailer for the new documentary Sellebrity last night at a screening of Holy Motors at USC. Seems pretty timely, what with the recent death of paparazzo Chris Guerra, who was struck by an SUV while shooting Justin Bieber, as well as the proposed legal changes to celebrity photography still being bandied about here in Los Angeles in the wake of Guerra’s death.

Charlie Sheen Pays for Paparazzo’s Funeral

When he’s not rubbing elbows (allegedly, not allegedly, those two need to come up with a story and stick to it) with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Charlie Sheen continues to prove he has a heart of gold.

The actor cut a check for $12,000 to pay for the funeral services of 29-year-old paparazzo photographer Chris Guerra, who was killed New Year’s Day in a tragic accident while chasing after what he thought was pop singer Justin Bieber.

“A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject,” Sheen told TMZ. “It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved.”

I didn’t exactly hear Bieber wanting to help Guerra’s family out. Total class act move by Sheen.

TMZ Identifies Paparazzo Killed During New Year’s Day Pursuit of Justin Bieber’s Vehicle

KTLA reported the photographer’s first name was Chris and that he was originally from New Mexico. This morning, TMZ has chimed in with the full name of the victim of a freakish New Year’s Day accident in west LA.

Killed while walking across a blind spot of the Supelveda Pass, after being told by LAPD officers to clear the scene, was 29-year-old Chris Guerra. The driver of the car that hit him is understandably traumatized. Per the KTLA report:

The driver of the car that struck the photographer was a grandmother who had her two grandchildren in the car. Police said she was very upset and distraught. She is not facing any charges, because it appears she was following all traffic regulations on the road.

WEHOville.com Publisher Puts Himself Out There with ‘Ask a Gay’

Take my column, please. That has pretty much been the approach espoused by WEHOville.com publisher Henry “Hank” Scott with his weekly column “Ask a Gay.”

Patterned after OC Weekly editor Gustavo Arellano‘s “¡Ask a Mexican!,” Scott’s tongue-in-cheek responses to emailed questions from readers are a bold and brash attempt to connect with a major part of the WeHo constituency. Is it working? We’re not sure, but the format certainly has fun leapfrogging over usual letter-from-the-publisher boundaries. Here for example is how Scott began a recent response to a woman asking whether celebrities still need today to worry about staying in the closet:

So you’re asking me if Tom Cruise is gay? Don’t know. Haven’t slept with him. And seriously, he’s so not my type (I like ‘em edgy and have a thing for shaved heads)…

Stevie Wonder Forgets the Words to His Own Christmas Song

Ha ha. It doesn’t get much more fun than this.

At the top of an appearance today on Good Day LA to promote the 17th annual edition of his “House Full Of Toys” fundraising concert at the Nokia Theatre, Stevie Wonder picked up on a Justin Bieber duet clip from last year’s edition and started performing “Someday at Christmas.” At one point, he forgot how the lyrics go but kept right on going:

“… And I’m messing up my own words. That’s OK because I’m with Steve [Edwards]. So he’ll forgive me on this show…”

Justin Bieber Deletes Simpsons Cameo Tweet

Good luck trying to erase the trail of a tweet when you have more than 26 million followers and your name is Justin Bieber.

It’s not clear why the Biebs would chime in yesterday about having just recorded a VO role for The Simpsons, then scrub that tweet. Did a ghost tweeter jump the gun? Did Bieber get a quick text message from FOX? It’s all moot, thanks to a report by EW’s Dan Snierson that has been widely picked up:

Executive producer Al Jean confirms to EW that Bieber will indeed play himself in an upcoming episode. How exactly does he fit into the story? “He tries to get into a talent show that Bart is playing piano in and they won’t admit him,” says Jean, quipping: “Draw your own conclusions.”

Word of the Day: ‘Stoparazzi’

Are you familiar with the term “stoparazzi?” If so, you’re way ahead of FishbowlLA.

Thanks to a recent piece on forbes.com by Morgan Brennan about what Lalaland celebrities look for in a home, we learned that this is often a leading VIP-MLS attribute:

“The number one feature celebrities need in a house is that it’s ‘stoparazzi,’ ” says Billy Rose, president of The Agency, a Los Angeles-area luxury real estate firm he co-founded with Mauricio Umansky, husband of reality TV star Kyle Richards of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. He says it’s not uncommon to drive a house-hunting celeb around LA with paparazzi in tow. His clients tend to like homes quietly tucked behind long, gated driveways, outfitted with extensive security systems and guard houses.
