Justin Bieber was rear-ended by a paparazzo in Hollywood, and now he’s using the incident as a means to draw comparisons to Princess Diana. According to 99.7 NOW, the Hollywood sheriff’s department reported that Bieber was behind the wheel of his Ferrari when a paparazzo rear-ended him in a Prius while attempting to take a picture.
Following the incident, Bieber took to Twitter to voice his concerns about the current state of paparazzi looking for that million dollar photo.
One those tweets directly compared him to Princess Diana, stating “There should be laws against what I just experienced. We should have learned from the death of Princess Diana…”
In more paparazzo news (and also a bigger twist than the ending of “The Sixth Sense”), Kanye West has admitted that his own father Ray West belonged to the very group of photographers West has so adamantly ranted about at his various shows.
“My father was a paparazzo himself,” West told the prosecutor during a deposition for his past physical confrontation with paparazzi. “My father was a medical illustrator, a Black Panther, a Christian marriage counselor.”
Ronald Reagan and Maya Angelou are just a couple of the subjects of Ray West.
Miley Cyrus is none too please with the way the media is portraying homeless youth Jesse Helt, her MTV Video Music Awards’ date. Following the former homeless teen’s speech during the awards show on behalf of Cyrus, the media has dug up some interesting facts about Helt, including warrants for his arrest in relation to probation violation stemming from previous charges of criminal trespassing and criminal mischief.
Once the media go their hands on these tidbits of information, Cyrus took to Twitter (as all celebrities do nowadays) to admonish the media, stating “The media never fails to disappoint. You’ve chosen to go after Jesse instead of covering the issue of youth homelessness.”
This year’s Emmy Award were as star-studded and surprising as ever with big wins going to “Modern Family” and “Breaking Bad” for Best Comedy Series and Best Drama Series respectively. CBS took away a few wins of its own with “The Good Wife’s” Julianna Margulies and “The Big Bang Theory’s” Jim Parson both winning awards of their own.
One of the biggest highlights of the show was Billy Crystal’s nostalgic, tear-jerking remembrance of Robin Williams.
“He made us laugh. Hard. Every time you saw him,” Crystal said of Williams at the conclusion of a tribute to industry members who died within the past 12 months. “Robin Williams, what a concept.”
