It’s Justin Bieber’s world. The rest of us are just living in it.
In fact, they should really rename the Webby Awards, one of which he’s nominated for, the Bieber Awards. Nominations for the 15th annual show – the Oscars of the Web – were unveiled today, and you best believe JB’s on the list.
Everyone from Justin Bieber to Jimmy Fallon to Conan O’Brien to Isaiah Mustafa are in contention. But none can match the greatness of a man who takes over whatever he pleases. Here’s the classic video that got the Bieb nominated:
In real life, Lily Collins has already found her prince. She’s dating Taylor Lautner.
On the big screen, though, the daughter of music legend Phil Collins will be waiting for one, as she’s been cast as Snow White in Relativity Media’s upcoming movie based on the Brothers Grimm story.
Collins will appear opposite Julia Roberts (as the evil stepmother) and Armie Hammer (as the aforementioned prince) in this “action-comedy” retelling of the classic tale, set for a June 2012 release.
There’s actually another Snow White movie in the works and it also has a Twilight connection: Kristen StewartMore >
Glee addressed the issues of underage drinking and sexual confusion on last night’s episode.
It also answered the classic question: how would a drunken cast of singing group members handle a cover of a Ke$ha song in a school-wide assembly celebrating alcohol awareness?
The answer: very well, at least for a couple minutes. Led by Heather Morris as Brittany, New Directions danced and sung along the “Tik Tok” this week. Check out the performance here, compare it to the original and be wary of the concluding few seconds. They’re gross.
Amid word that Snooki, Sitch, Pauly & Co. are headed to Italy this spring, a Taiwanese TV station has imagined – and animated – its take on how it sees Jersey Shore Season Four playing out. It’ll make more sense when you watch it. Probably.
Seems like a fairly accurate portrayal …
For another classic video from this same great news source, here’s their version / reenactment of the infamous Tiger Woods scandal from December 2009 …
Might Kristen Stewart be going from vampires to dwarfs?
The actress is reportedly the leading contender for the title role in Snow White and the Huntsman, a live-action adaption of the classic fairy tale. Viggo Mortensen and Charlize Theron are also up for parts in the film.
In the upcoming retelling of the Grimm brothers story, the Huntsman will serve as Snow White’s protector and mentor.
If Stewart does sign on for the drama, she would begin shooting right after filming on Breaking Dawn is complete. What do you think, Twihards? Can you picture her in the role?
Like sister, like brother?
Years after Kim Kardashian posed nude in Playboy (and likely seconds after she brought it up for the 797th time since that spread), Playgirl has extended a $45,000 offer to Rob Kardashian to bare it all.
“While most people assumed we’d be interested in Scott Disick, my interest actually lies in the adorable Rob Kardashian,” Playgirl rep Daniel Nardicio says. “Rob is a perfect example of the classic Playgirl model, and we’d be proud to have him join the ranks of other quasi celebs to strip for Playgirl.
Hmmm… Levi Johnston once posed for Playgirl, Rob. We’reMore >
The Chicago Mansion that played a vital part in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day off has went on the market.
The $1.65 Million dollar home, scene to the famous Ferrari crash scene is located at 370 Beech St and was designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid back in 1953.
The home features 5,300 square feet and is built from steel and glass with floor to ceiling windows throughout the rather large home.
It’s a steep price to pay for Cameron Frye’s home, but it sure would make quite the speaking point when your buddy brings over his classic car and wants to part it in yourMore >
Jackie Evancho has already set a record for debut album sales in 2010.
But this young sensation isn’t through just yet!
The 10-year old Britain’s Got Talent finalist has also released her first-ever music video, this one for the classic Christmas single “Silent Night.” Speaking on her first album in general, Jackie recently said:
“It was a short, but amazing experience. It was a lot of fun working with Marius DeVries. He’s a good producer and CD maker who taught me you have to work very hard to reach your goal.”
Perhaps Susan Boyle should not sing at the Royal Wedding.
The Scottish sensation, who continues to rule the Billboard album charts, had an unfortunate incident this morning on The View. Performing the classic song “O Holy Night,” Boyle missed a note and lost her way. She motioned for the music to stop, but ended up standing awkwardly silent for a few moments before the hosts rushed in to save her.
See for yourself and then send in words of encouragement: hang in there, Susan! This was just a one-time hiccup:
(HMG Celebrity News) – Hollywood’s obsession with remakes shows no signs of fading, and Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh is now in talks to helm their latest reboot – A new take on the classic 60′s TV spy series, ‘The Man from U.N.C.L..E.’
The 47-year old Atlanta native is now talking to Warners about directing a film version of the classic show, which has been stuck in development hell since just after the ice age. And Steve’s favorite writer, Scott Z. Burns [who wrote his 2009 thriller 'The Informant'] is Warner’s new choice to create the script.
The studio has been trying to getMore >
Viewers love Teen Mom… so why not Teen Wolf?
Such is the thinking of MTV, as that network is actually turning the classic Michael J. Fox movie into a television series. To many, this might be considered sacrilegious, but to others, it’s a no-brainer.
Just consider the success of the Twilight Saga, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. MTV has not announced a premiere date for the drama, but the first season will consist of 12 episodes and star Tyler Posey as a recently-bitten high school student. Watch a trailer for Teen Wolf below:

It’s official! The Hit ABC summer game show Wipeout which features contestants attempting to complete crazy obstacle courses has been renewed for a 4th season.
The Hollywood Reporter says of the new season:
“The next round of the series will feature two new obstacle courses, including a fresh “motivator” for the infamously difficult Big Balls, the classic sweeper with a new twist and obstacles such as the Lawn Mower and the Sky Scraper Slide…”
Show creator Matt Kunitz said of the renewal:
“I’m excited that a fourth season will give our team the opportunity to create bigger andMore >

Beauty And The Beast debuted in 1991 to rave reviews and huge box office numbers, it will be interesting to see how the movie does when it arrives in 3D form come August.
What do you think, will you be picking up the new DVD release or seeing the movie in theaters? I’d be interested to see if the appeal of this Disney Classic still holds any weight in today’sMore >
Lee DeWyze may have won American Idol last night, but Bret Michaels stole the show.
The recovering rocker appeared on stage with Casey James and sang a duet of his classic, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Despite recent health problems, Bret looked right at home in front of the thousands in attendance.

Lee DeWyze threw down the real gauntlet, according to Randy Jackson.
His rendition of “Hallelujah” was simply stunning, said Ellen DeGeneres.
The singer is the heart of the show, gushed Kara DioGuardi.
And Simon Cowell went as far as to refer to Lee as a “great person.”
What prompted all this praise? DeWyze’s dominance during the most recent performance night of American Idol. Watch him take a rocker’s edge to this classic single below:Halleljuah Rendition
