Academic Paper Quantifies ‘Bieber Fever’

Early on in the 21-page treatise “A Mathematical Model of Bieber Fever: The Most Infectious Disease of Our Time?,” University of Ottawa student Valerie Tweedle warns that “tabloid journalism may be our last, best hope” against this fast-moving media blight. In other words, only a sensationally negative scandal can (eventually) impede the constant flow on Twitter, Facebook and in the MSM of contagious news about the Canadian-born superstar.

Some north-of-the-border outlets were skeptical today about the document’s authenticity. But per a report on Canadian Press, the cheeky analysis earned Tweedle top marks from her teacher Dr. Robert J. Smith:

The study is a real modelling exercise, with the phenomenal growth in Bieber’s popularity — as evidenced by Twitter mentions and Google searches — used as a stand-in for the way an infectious disease spreads. Tweedle’s original work helped earned her an A-plus in Smith’s class…

“Obviously it’s not formally a disease, but it has the hallmarks of a disease,” Smith says about The Fever. “And so it behaves the way a disease would…”

Live From New York, It’s Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan made her highly anticipated return to Saturday Night Live after a six-year hiatus this weekend.

Reviews have been mixed so far on how Lohan did, but her opening monologue was entertaining as the troubled actress managed to poke fun at her flaws.

LiLo Playboy Cover Breaking Sales Records?

Is Hugh Hefner full of hot air?

The Playboy publisher tweeted Sunday that “the Lindsay Lohan January-February Double Issue is breaking sales records.”

TMZ.com reported that newsstands have had to re-order the issues multiple times. But when CNN called a dozen newsstands in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and New York, only one location was sold out of the issue.

Considering the entire spread was leaked online and that the world is no stranger to Lohan’s assets, I find it hard to believe that this issue is breaking sales records.

But for $1 million, I hope Hefner has made his money back at least.

Judge Doesn’t Want Copy of LiLo’s Playboy Issue

Lindsay Lohan and Judge Stephanie Sautner sure have come a long way these past few months.

After it appeared the actress was headed back to jail (for more than 30 minutes this time), Lohan got her act together and successfully completed her first round of community service. Sautner was so impressed with Lohan Wednesday that she even worked in a Playboy joke, according to the Los Angeles Times:

Lindsay Lohan Misses Ellen Appearance

Lindsay Lohan had quite the Hawaiian getaway this past weekend.

Someone stole $10,000 from her Chanel purse, she strolled the beaches with her nipple hanging out and ended up missing her flight back to Los Angeles and as a result, her appearance on Ellen.

Lohan was booked on the syndicated talk show to reveal her Playboy cover, but the entire spread was leaked last week, killing any buzz around her interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

Playboy To Release Lindsay Lohan Issue Early

Due to the leak this week of the Lindsay Lohan Playboy cover and spread, Hugh Hefner has decided to release the January/February issue early.

“Because of the interest & the Internet leak, we’re releasing the Lindsay Lohan issue early,” Hefner tweeted Friday. “Lindsay Lohan was the top search name on the Internet yesterday. Her issue goes on sale late next week. Hot. Hot. Hot.”

If you can’t wait until next week, you can find the photos by doing a quick Google search.

Not bad, LiLo. Not bad at all.

Lindsay Lohan to Debut Playboy Spread on Ellen

Congrats (?) to Ellen DeGeneres for landing the debut of Lindsay Lohan‘s Playboy spread, which hits newsstands later this month.

“Lindsay has agreed to do one media interview during the on-sale period of her issue, and has chosen Ellen,” Lohan’s rep told the New York Daily News. “Lindsay will not be doing any additional interviews to promote her pictorial.”

Lohan will appear on Ellen Dec. 15. For two photo shoots and nearly $1 million, this spread better be freakin’ spectacular.

Happy Holidays: Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy Spread Hits Newsstands in December

Dental work. Check.

Five hours in jail. Check.

Playboy photo shoot. Check.

Things are looking up for Lindsay Lohan as she completed her (second) Playboy photo shoot and will officially appear in the January/February issue of the men’s magazine, which hits newsstands late December.

“The pictorial is absolutely fantastic and very tasteful, and will be accompanied by an interview that will let readers see another side of Lindsay,” said spokesman Steve Honig.

Now, about that pesky community service …

Lindsay Lohan Given Jail Reprieve…To Pose Naked for Playboy

Someone in the LA County Superior Court system must have a teenage son. Because TMZ is reporting that Judge Stephanie Sautner has just delayed Lindsay Lohan‘s jail sentence so she can pose naked for Playboy. LiLo’s Playboy contract is for a cool million bucks. She’ll be in breach of said contract if she doesn’t finish her shoot by the end of the week.

Radar Online reports LiLo has already shot a series of photos for Playboy, but the mag was not happy with what they got out of her. “Lindsay was told that the Playboy executives wanted to go another direction with her shoot so they asked her to come back for a second time,” a source told the website.

Here’s a thought Playboy: her pics probably didn’t turn out so well because she’s terrified of going to jail. Shoot her the second she gets out, when she’s sex-starved and happy to be free, and things will probably go more smoothly.

Adding Up Some Twitter Celebrity Endorsement Math

In the heyday of Internet email marketing, a one to three percent “click-through” rate was considered acceptable. Today, with Twitter offering an instantaneous version of the e-mail blast, how does the service compare? Especially when celebrity accounts with large follower counts are doing the blasting?

AP business writer Christina Rexrode has a rare, specific answer today. After leading with examples such as Snoop Dogg and Tori Spelling, she passes on some intriguing info from the client side:

Dan Smith, vice president of marketing for the website CampusLIVE, which helps advertisers connect with college students… paid Lindsay Lohan about $3,500 for one tweet with link: ‘These challenges for college kids on #CampusLIVE are SO addicting!’

The post to Lohan’s 2.6 million fans drove about 4,500 clicks to the website, Smith said. But he also said he wasn’t sure if he’d use her again…
