Justin Bieber may no longer be the YouTube champion, but the singer did earn himself an award this weekend.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper presented the singer with the Diamond Jubilee Medal, which is handed out to those who have made a significant contribution to a particular province or region in Canada.
He’s photographed here accepting the honor – and also donning some serious overalls:
A spokeswoman for Harper described the meeting between these powerful stars as “light-hearted” and added:

This weekend, Saturday Night Live introduced viewers to Mokiki, a medical lab test patient turned dance machine who wanders through NYC performing his signature dance move.
Clearly, SNL is striving for that kind of viral fame with thisMore >
Attention, Prince Harry. Lady Gaga will see your nude pics, and raise you a video.
After ogling the Prince Harry naked photos currently taking the Internet by storm, the pop star tweeted, “HOLY MOTHER HARRY LOOKS FIT.” Indeed.
But in typical (and much less surprising, for her) fashion, Mama Monster has gone a step further herself with a video posted on her YouTube channel.
A mellow Gaga can be seen introducing home videos taken at various times – one of which includes her flashing her breasts for the camera. Peep it:

This is so not the week to be Justin Bieber.
Days after the singer was cited for excessive speeding and chased by the paparazzi, he’s been hit with a lawsuit by a former concert goer named Stacey Wilson Betts – and you won’t believe the reason why.
Betts is suing the adorable teen for $9.2 million because she attended a show in July 2010 and claims to have suffered severe tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and hyperacusis (oversensitivity to sound) in both ears as a result.
Based on court documents obtained by E! News, Betts says she was injured due to “an unforeseen aspect of the show,”More >
Confirming rumors that have been circulating for months, and which were punctuated by his performance of Lazy Sunday 2 on the Saturday Night Live season finale last month, Andy Samberg has confirmed that he’s exiting the iconic sketch show.
“It’s an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life,” Samberg told The New York Times yesterday in a telephone interview. “Obviously it’s not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back.”
Samberg joined SNL in 2005 and went on to become the master of the Digital Short. He can also do a mean impression of Nicholas Cage.

After being taken off YouTube for a while, Lady Gaga’s official YouTube page ‘ladygagaofficial” has been restored once again. The material uploaded by Team-Gaga before the suspension took place, remains untouched, but her “SMAP x SMAP” clip has been deleted by the video sharing website’s management.

Rebecca Black has pulled her infamous video off the website because there’s a fight over the singer’s image brewing. Said a rep for the young singer to TMZ:
“We can confirm that we submitted a Take Down Notice to YouTube as a result of the dispute we have with Ark Music regarding the ‘Friday’ video.”

In January, Newsweek ranked Grand Rapids, Michigan at number-10 on its list of “dying” American cities.
Did the city respond by crying over the snub? Pointing out the irony of a publication with a massive loss in readership over the last year posting any death watch that did not include itself on the list?
No. Instead, local citizens and celebrities gathered this week to set a world record for lip dubbing, as hundreds took to the streets and showed off the pride in their community via an impressively-executed rendition of Don McClean’s “American Pie.”
Incredibly, this was all shot in oneMore >
Rebecca Black may have a number of supporters – Simon Cowell and Lady Gaga have both expressed a certain admiration for the YouTube sensation – but Miley Cyrus us NOT one of them.
Asked about the 13-year old, Miley told Australia’s Daily Telegraph: “It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go on tour.”
TGIF? Not to Miley Cyrus.
Cyrus claims she isn’t a fan of how people use the Web in general, saying: “I do not Tweet, I do not social network, I try to stay out of it. I complain enough about peopleMore >
