Justin Bieber Made Sure Selena Felt Safe & Protected While Rock Climbing In NYC!

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are taking their love to new heights…literally! The couple went rock climbing yesterday and we spoke to an instructor and eyewitness who saw them and say they had great communication!



Jusin Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez are making sure they are getting plenty of adventure time together – which is exactly what they did when the pair went rock climbing at The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers in New York City June 30. Rock climbing instructor Andres tells HollywoodLife.com, “Justin and Selena took a semi-private lesson which lasted about one hour,” adding that good communication is the key to successful rock climbing. Are Justin and Selena working on their communication skills? If so, what better way then to have fun climbing a rock wall?
“Justin was a pro and very daring,” an eyewitness tells HollywoodLife.com. “His main concern was making sure Selena felt safe and protected. They both had a blast. Even though Justin is on the small side, he is very strong!”
Andres explains, “In the class we teach students how to belay, which means working the ropes and making sure the other person is safe. You have to be a team. We gave them tips on the best way of getting up the wall. For example, trusting your feet more and using your legs to push you up, rather than using your arms to pull you up. Our walls are about 45 feet height, but where Justin and Selena were climbing, the walls are about 35-37 feet high. Some people who are afraid of heights struggle quite a bit. When you get to the top, you let the instructor know and then you slowly push off nice and easy.”
He adds, “To be successful at rock climbing you have to be a very good listener, pay attention to your climber and be willing to push yourself to your limit. It does require a lot of team work. Even before people start rock climbing, they have to learn the rock climbing commands.”
Looks like both Justin and Selena get A+’s on their communication skills…not to mention their rock climbing abilities!

OMG: Justin Bieber Is In The Hamptons

A week after a harrowing perfume launch at Macy's, Justin Bieber is back in the New York area. But it seems like the Biebs is not all work and no play, because he spent his Canada Day with girlfriend Selena Gomez shopping in the Hamptons. One observer told Page Six, "Everyone was turning their heads, doing double takes, staring at them as they walked down the street."

The pair were at the Flying Point Surf and Sport shop in Bridgehampton. Employee Matt King told Newsday that they spent around $700 ("Bieber purchased a Billabong bathing suit, some hats and a t-shirt. Gomez bought a Free People dress and a Vix bathing suit. Both teen celebrities bought a pair of Toms shoes.") while one shopper said that Bieber called Gomez "babe... You could tell they were in a relationship." Later on, the pair were spotted going onto a yacht. Page Six says Bieber, 17, and Gomez, 18, who had been in Manhattan on Thursday, are staying at a private residence. Tip to Bieber and Gomez: The cops are cracking down on underage drinking!

Justin Bieber planking photos

Justin Bieber loves planking, and he's posted pictures of himself doing it online to prove it. Who knew? Apparently, even the most famous teenage mega star on earth is not immune to the new bizarre phenomenon of planking. Although why anyone, rich or poor, celebrity or anonymous citizen would waste time with this childish, pointless, and often dangerous game is impossible to fathom. Of course, now that Justin Bieber has fallen victim--er--evinced an interest in this inane fad, it will probably springboard and become a national obsession. Much like the hoola-hoop back in the olden days.

For the uninitiated, Planking, aka The Lying Down Game, aka Face Downs, is a new Web craze. It's stupid, but easy to play. To plank, one has only to lie "face down in an unusual or incongruous location. The hands must touch the sides of the body, and having a photograph of the participant taken and posted on the Internet is an integral part of the game. Players compete to find the most unusual and original location in which to play. The location should also be as public as possible, and as many people as possible should be involved."

Sounds riveting, doesn't it? Unfortunately, there has already been one death attributed to the silly non-sport. An Australian man died a few weeks ago when he tried to plank on an apartment building balcony. Yikes.

Oh well, beliebers needn't worry about their idol. As you can see in the photos here, the Teen Dream doesn't seem to have placed himself in any danger. In the first photo, he's planking on an office desk. The second effort looks like it was on board a boat of some kind. With the 2 photos he posted a Tweet:
"Me and @diggy_Simmons #plankin #schwag"

Does this mean the world will soon see Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez PDA-filled planking pics in cyberspace?

Anything is possible.

Mini millionaires Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez enjoy a cheap and cheerful lunch date

They both have millions in the bank, but Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber opted for a cheap day out in New York yesterday.
The young lovers were spotted strolling hand in hand out of The Siam Inn, a Thai restaurant in Midtown after enjoying a lunch date together.
The Zagat-rated restaurant offers a modestly priced menu with appetisers around $6 and stir-fries between $12-$14.
The 17-year-old pop sensation held on tight to Selena's hand as they strolled down the side walk, guiding her back to the car.

Selena, 18, looked pretty but casual in jeans and a white strapless frilly top with a gold cardigan over the top.
Justin looked equally as relaxed in jeans, trainers and a grey cardigan.
The Baby singer is actually putting his own career on a brief pause while he travels with Selena during the promotional tour for her new film and album.

The star, who is more used to being the headline act, accompanied Gomez to an early morning appearance on Fox & Friends in Manhattan earlier this week.
Supporting each other's careers is just another sign that the couple relationship is getting stronger and closer as days go by.
Last week, even after surviving a reported fan attack at Macy’s Herald Square in New York, Justin made sure to pick himself up and head to Selena’s film première.
She is currently starring in Monte Carlo – a new romantic comedy that also stars Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy.
Days before he also wrapped a protective arm around Selena when she hosted the MuchMusic Video Awards awards ceremony.

Bieber to channel NKOTB with next album

Looks like Justin Bieber's next album will have all the right stuff—the teen idol's tunes will be inspired by '80s boy bands like New Kids on the Block.

Music producer Jim Jonsin, who is working with the singer on his upcoming album, tells MTV the songs will have an old-school flavor.
"For Bieber, I think I want to reach back to New Edition, those days," he says, adding that he also hopes to emulate another Beantown band. "I want to try to do something like that — 'Please Don't Go Girl,' New Kids on the Block — because the girls would go crazy."
But Jonsin makes it clear that Bieber won't be covering the NKOTB track, which appeared on the group's 1988 album "Hangin' Tough."
"Maybe not that song," he says, "but something that feels like that: little bit of soul, R&B, but pop as well."

Justin Bieber starts rumor about album title

It is rare when celebrities start their own rumors about themselves. But Justin Bieber certainly did with a recent tweet that seemed innocent enough. The rumor is about his upcoming new album, which he has not given many details about as of yet.

Justin tweeted that he has been working on a new album that is slated for a November release. However, the big deal was not the fact that he thinks it will be his best work to date-but the hash tag that he started. Justin who is all about positive messages used believe as his hash tag. This started a frenzy that his album will be called Believe, which Justin did not deny nor confirm.
This is really a rumor that simply started by one, single hash tag. I doubt that was Justin’s goal, but I cannot really say for a fact that he feels that way. Still, the suggestion is believable (no pun intended) album title name for Justin. He is big on sending out hope for his fans, which Believe fits in well enough. I just think that he should say something about this, being quite might “confirm” this for them. I think this was more a simple mistake made by Justin, but it might have given him an idea that he would have never thought of on his own. Maybe one day we will find out for a fact what this is all about? I think we can all certainly say that we hope that is the case here.
Here is the official tweet for those wanting to know what the craze is all about
been working on new music…this next album is gonna be best so far. #BELIEVE

Justin Bieber's BET Awards dustup: What really happened

Justin Bieber Rips BET Security

Justin Bieber had some harsh words for a security guard outside the BET Awards. Here's how it all went down.
Justin Bieber has a mouth on him. The teen idol got all riled up at the BET Awards last week when one of the on-site security guards wouldn't let Bieber's own bodyguard through the gate -- even though Bieber was a presenter.



TMZ has a video of the altercation. In it, you can see it all started because Bieber's bodyguard didn't have a ticket. BET security was utterly inflexible, repeating over and over, "You gotta have a ticket... You know how many security guys I've turned down today?"

Bieber was attacked outside of Macy's in New York City just days earlier and was not going anywhere without his bodyguard -- and he let the doorman know it.

"I need my security with me," Bieber said. "This guy's a douchebag."

Eventually BET staffers let Bieber's whole crew inside. A rep for the BET Awards brushed off the incident, saying, "It is our standard policy to make sure everyone has their tickets or credential upon arrival. Justin had the proper credentials."

Beliebers: You have a new enemy.

Justin Bieber's "Baby" Most Viewed Video Online

Not only does Justin Bieber have hit records, a documentary based on his fabulous life and a hot girlfriend at the tender age of 17, he can also claim to have the most viewed video online. The Guinness World Records, in honor of Social Media Day on June 30, released a listing of who has the most Facebook comments, Facebook likes, Twitter followers, most liked video online and most viewed video online.

Justin Bieber's "Baby" video, directed by Ray Kay from Norway, was released on February 19, 2010. Girls everywhere immediately gathered around their television sets to watch the video play repeatedly on MTV. Not satisfied with simply waiting around until it came on, they bombarded YouTube to watch him sing and dance his way to a young girl's heart.
According to The Guinness World Records, the video had 575,118,703 YouTube views as of June 29, 2011, making it not only the most viewed YouTube video but the most viewed video of all time across all channels. People who can't stand Bieber will take satisfaction in knowing that Bieber's "Baby" is the most disliked video on YouTube, with 1,490,076 "dislikes" as of June 29, 2011, but only because Rebecca Black's much derided "Friday" was pulled from the site because of a dispute with its record label.
So what makes Bieber's "Baby" so captivating and addicting? Even people well beyond his target audience admit to singing and dancing along with the video. It can't be denied that the song has a catchy beat and hook. Perhaps being constantly assaulted by pop stars who barely wear any clothes and perform as if they must shock audiences into disbelief makes the public crave for someone like Bieber, a performer who has still managed to maintain a clean-cut and wholesome image.

Usher says Justin Bieber always had a ‘God -given talent’

R&B star Usher has revealed that we’ve got him to thank for the Bieber-mania that’s sweeping the world!

In an interview with Fabulous magazine he revealed:
“Justin had a God-given talent long before I got involved. My involvement was to guide his talent…as long as he has a mentor like me, he’ll always be a student.”
But it turns out Justin Bieber isn’t the only star to benefit from a little learning time with Usher, he added:
“David [Beckham] called me a few months ago asking if I knew anyone who could teach their sons to breakdance…they came backstage and showed me some moves.”

Shia LaBeouf: 'Justin Bieber like young Frank Sinatra'

Shia LaBeouf has said that Justin Bieber is like a "young Frank Sinatra" because of his presence when he walks into a room.




Transformers: Dark of the Moon star LaBeouf recounted a meeting with Bieber at the MTV Movie Awards during an appearance on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night.

"He rolls up with a huge squad of dudes - he has to," said LaBeouf. "He has this presence like Buddha or a young prince.

"I went up to say hi and the security is like, 'Wow, wow' and ready to take me down. Bieber does this finger wave like, 'He's OK'. It was very cool to me, super cool! Bieber is the bomb. He's like a 16-year-old Frank Sinatra. He has so much presence."

LaBeouf recently admitted that he was unsure if he would want to achieve the global fame of stars like Bieber or Robert Pattinson, telling Italian magazine Un'Intervista that he prefers a more low-key existence.

"Popularity is like a drug," he told the publication. "I would not want the worldwide popularity of Robert Pattinson or Justin Bieber. Even if you don't reach those levels, it's hard not to feel at least a little almighty."

LaBeouf recently met Bieber's girlfriend Selena Gomez, who posted a video of their encounter on her Twitter feed alongside the message: "Best. Day. Ever."

In the video, Gomez can be seen entering a dressing room backstage at a television studio thinking that she is about to meet some fans, only to see LaBeouf waiting inside, prompting her to flee back into the corridor.

LaBeouf can be seen in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which is in cinemas now.

Justin Bieber Tweets Help Javier Colon Win 'The Voice'

Thanks in part to Justin Bieber, Javier Colon is now $100,000 richer and the proud possessor of a Universal Records contract. Those are the prizes Javier won by beating out Dia Frampton on The Voice. It was a close competition, and Colon admits that the Teen Dream probably helped push him over the top.



Before the show, Justin Bieber posted the following Tweet:

"@adamlevine got u. #supportyourfriends."

The Biebs followed it up with a message about his new Google chrome commercial to which he added another mention of his friend, Adam Levine, who also happens to be Javier Colon's coach.

"check out @NBCTheVoice tonight at 8PM EST to see our new #KIDRAUHL commercial with @googlechrome" JB Tweeted, "– and maybe support @adamlevine"

Justin's third Tweet once again mentioned Adam Levine.


"ok..kinda hyped but told im not allowed to spoil it..but @adamlevine WHAZZZUPPP. #BeastMODE"

When asked if he thought Justin Bieber might have been instrumental in helping him win The Voice by a 2 percent margin, Javier Colon replied:

Justin very well may have. He sent out a tweet to all of his people, and we won by two percent. I don't know how many of them voted or how many of them just maybe followed me on twitter. But I'm thankful to everyone who lent their support, who told their folks to give me a chance.

Interestingly, when asked if he would like to someday duet with the Teen Dream, Colon replied:

"I don't know, maybe! We might have to talk." He was probably still in shock.

Oh well, congratulations, Javier. Don't spend that $100,000 all in one place.

As for Justin Bieber... so young, so talented, so much power. On June 28, Google Chrome released a video featuring Justin Bieber. The very next day, they introduced a Chrome theme featuring JB's famous image. Since these two features were launched, the brand has acquired 10,000 new followers on Twitter.

Javier Colon's The Voice win could be just the beginning. It boggles the mind, doesn't it?

Justin Bieber Doing NKOTB?



Jim Jonsin Reveals Ideas
Producer says he would like to help Biebs channel New Kids on the Block, New Edition and Kelly Rowland. 
Multi-platinum producer Jim Jonsin has some interesting plans for when he gets in the studio with Justin Bieber. No, he won't be coupling the teen-pop sensation with B.o.B, but rather he will try to capture the vibe of NKOTB.


"For Bieber, I think I want to reach back to New Edition, those days," Jonsin initially said before referencing another 1980s Boston-bred boy band. "I want to try to do something like that — 'Please Don't Go Girl,' New Kids on the Block — because the girls would go crazy. Maybe not that song, but something that feels like that: little bit of soul, R&B, but pop as well."

While the track pre-dates the 17-year-old Bieber by about four years, "Please Don't Go Girl" was the first single from NKOTB's sophomore album, Hangin' Tough, and ultimately put the group on the map. The ballad, which featured Joey McIntyre as the lead vocalist, drew comparisons to New Edition's 1983 single, "Is This the End" — not surprising considering both acts were founded and produced by Maurice Starr.

It isn't all about the '80s however: Jonsin also would like to produce something more modern for JB as well, using Kelly Rowland as a reference. "And then I'd love to put him on something like that 'Motivation' type of track," he said of the hit Rowland single he helped create. "Just a hard beat that he could sing something super slick [on]."

Jonsin admits that, at first, he didn't know what to make of Justin, but thanks to the Biebs' "Never Say Never" film, the hitmaker has a newfound respect for the young star. "When I watched the movie with my 8-year-old daughter, I was floored and inspired at who he was as a person. He's a good kid, he's a philanthropist, he's a good role model," Jonsin said. "I have a newfound respect for the young man, and I'm honored to work with him."

Justin Bieber’s diva-sized ego tempered by Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber is one of the biggest superstars on the planet, but a number of sources close to the musical phenom report Bieber’s diva-like behavior has been showcasing an ego as large as his worldwide popularity.
While the pop star’s outbursts — like when he blasted a BET Awards show official Sunday for refusing to admit a Bieber bodyguard — are regular occurrences, one Bieber buddy has another take on it all.
“Yes, Justin can get testy at times, but who wouldn’t considering he is hounded by the paparazzi and other media types 24/7. Remember, he’s just a kid and, I think, is extremely mature for someone his age,” the source said.
Another source on Team Bieber reveals the singer has a calming influence: his girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
“Maybe it’s because she ‘gets’ it, fully understands the whole fame thing because she deals with it herself,” said the Bieber defender. “But boy, she sure can make him laugh at the insanity of it all, and get him to relax and have fun.”

Justin Bieber Chrome theme and video drive Twitter fans - nearly 10,000 new followers

On June 28 Google Chrome launched a video featuring Justin Bieber, followed by a Chrome theme bearing the likeness of the young pop star on June 29. Since these launches, the brand has gained nearly 10,000 new Twitter followers.

The video Google Chrome: Justin Bieber features the young Canadian heartthrob tracking his rise to fame using Google Chrome tools; since being uploaded on June 28 the video has been watched over 100,000 times.
A link below the video takes viewers to a Chrome theme featuring Justin Bieber in profile wearing a silver jacket and microphone headset; the theme was released June 29.
Themes are backgrounds for the browser; other examples of themes include "Mariah Carey," "Vivienne Westwood" and "Porsche."

The launch of the video and the site were broadcast via the Twitter account of Google Chrome (@googlechrome) with the hashtag #thewebiswhatyoumakeofit.
Data from social media monitoring site Fanpagelist shows that since June 28 the number of Twitter fans of Google Chrome has increased by 10,684, making it one of the brands with the biggest daily increase in followers as of 4pm GMT June 30.
While Google also began launching its social networking service Google+ on June 28, this was announced on Twitter via the official Google account (@google) and though re-tweeted on the Chrome account was more likely to have driven traffic to the original source.

Google Created Justin Bieber. That's Why You Should Use Chrome!

Google called their ad campaign for Chrome their "biggest offline campaign ever" when they launched it in May. The search company is trying to draw attention to the technology powering its increasingly popular web browser and recently released cloud laptops with a series of 90-second television spots. So far, the campaign seems a little bit misleading since most of the Chrome ads seem sort of like YouTube promos in disguise. The latest one, tracking Justin Bieber rise to superstardom, is exactly that.

Justin Bieber on the drums
Just in case you didn't already know, YouTube made Justin Bieber a star. The 17-year-old Canadian singing haircut caught his big break after former marketing executive Scooter Braun accidentally clicked on a video of Bieber performing in 2007. Bieber's mom had been uploading clips of her son performing at the school talent show, playing drums in the living room and whatnot. Impressed by his performance, Braun flew the barely teenage Bieber to Atlanta to record demo tapes, and a week later he was singing for Usher. A year later, he signed with Def Jam. A year after that, his first single went platinum. And by June of 2011, Justin Bieber could claim the most popular video in YouTube's history with over 575 million views for his music video "Baby."
Google's marketing strategy here is pretty obvious. Hoping to repeat the viral success of their previous Chrome ad, featuring Lady Gaga, the search company is simply playing by the numbers. Bieber teased and later tweeted the completed commercial late last night, which is not a surprising move for the avid Twitter user. With 10.6 million at the time of this posting, Justin Bieber has more Twitter followers than anyone in the world--except for Lady Gaga who has 11.2 million.
Regardless of the strategy, Bieber's new Google commercial does provide one resounding message: YouTube can make you a star. As Google weighs the idea of making the video site into an entertainment production company, the commercials presumably promoting Google's future serves a great reminder that YouTube will continue to churn out grassroots success stories like the one about the teenager at a talent show that became the world's biggest pop star in two years. All because of YouTube, a Google product.



The third most popular Twitter user, by the way, is Barack Obama with 8.9 million followers. We'll probably have to wait a few years for that Google commercial, though, since the president's been taking heat lately for his close connections to the company.

Justin Bieber - Bieber's Bet Awards Confrontation

Justin Bieber was involved in a showdown at the Bet Awards after one of his bodyguards was denied entrance to the Los Angeles bash.

A doorman refused to let a member of Bieber's security staff into the ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium because he did not have a ticket.
In video footage obtained by Tmz.com, members of the singer's entourage can be seen arguing with the bouncer before Bieber interjects, declaring: "I need my security with me!"
Referring to the attendant, the 17 year old then adds, "This guy's a douchebag."
A spokesperson for Bet has downplayed the incident, insisting, "It is our standard policy to make sure everyone has their tickets or credential upon arrival. Justin had the proper credentials."
The Baby hitmaker and his entire team eventually made it inside the event, where the teen presented an award onstage with Nicki Minaj.

Did Paramount, Justin Bieber Deceive Fans in 'Never Say Never' Ads?

Paramount's "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" may have become a $73 million hit for the studio this winter, but the ad industry's self-regulatory group decided the film's marketing might trick some fans into thinking the pop star himself might turn up at their screening.



The Children's Advertising Review Unit, a division of the Council of Better Business Bureau, recommended that Paramount Pictures modify or discontinue a 60-second TV spot that featured a surprise appearance from the singer at a Los Angeles movie theater, accompanied by the statement, "This could happen in your theater."

Although Justin Bieber did in fact make unannounced appearances at several L.A.-area movie theaters shortly after the film's February release, CARU found that the ads could deceptively imply that the singer would make appearances in other cities as well. The spot aired during children's programming, but the messaging was used in only one of 32 different TV ads used by the studio to promote the film, representing less than 1% of the total broadcast buy for the film.

"Advertising should be neither deceptive nor unfair, as these terms are applied under the Federal Trade Commission Act, to the children to whom it is directed," CARU said in its four-page decision document.

In a statement, the studio said, "Paramount Pictures respectfully disagrees with the final case decision for reasons set forth in its response letter to CARU. Nevertheless, the commercial is no longer running and will not be used again."

CARU has previously criticized the film industry for marketing PG-13 films to children under 12, and issued a report to the Motion Picture Association of America in 2008 about films with inappropriate marketing practices.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber not tying any kind of knot, okay?


Shock, horror and roll over sideways, Justin Bieber is not planning on asking Selena Gomez to marry him! After a whole host of rumours circulating that Justin was planning on asking Selena for hand during her 19th birthday party in July, we can safely say they're not true.



Despite going on holiday together, meeting each others parentsand saying the big L word the pair are not ready for a life time of commitment. They are only 17 and 18 and we're pretty sure Justin is only just finishing puberty.

However, Beliebers can sleep soundly at night again because a rep from Justin has confirmed that he has no engagement plans. Although this doesn't mean that Justin is going to propose to you instead, okay?
One day who knows but for now the young pair are just chilling out and sharing a few cheeky snogs on the beach.
Did you think this rumour was ridiculous? Do you reckon they should get married one day or will it fizzle out like many young relationships?

Bieber's Pencils of Promise is Kicking Butt - Let's Bring it Home!

You may remember that crazy adorable video of Justin Bieber and his partner in the incredible Pencils of Promise initiative via Schoools4All, the very handsome and personable Adam Braun.
I got to ask Adam a few questions about his work with The Biebs, and he was kind enough to delve a little deeper in how the two became involved with this incredible program:
Me: You mentioned wanting to do something like this together for years, so why now? What moved you guys to action, and how did the two of you start working on it?

AB: Justin and I have been friends for years, and we've always talked about doing something big together that enabled education for kids around the world. We knew that the gamechanger would be if he could visit a school, but we had to wait until after his movie was released so that we could figure out scheduling. It took time for our team to fully build out the platform as we'd envisioned it, for us to develop the expertise on the ground to build truly sustainable schools, and for Justin to get a break from his world tour. But now that it's all come together, we're incredibly proud of what Schools4All has become.
I'd be proud too Adam, it's pretty crazy impressive. I asked him about how he got Justin to join up - apparently the two had been wanting to do something to counteract the trouble in our schools for quite some time - I loved what he had to say...
AB: Coming up with Schools4All was really a collaborative process between the two of us. We were roommates while on a trip to Africa last September and one morning in the room we just started tossing around ideas about how we could work together to raise money to build new PoP schools. By the time we went down to breakfast we had the entire idea concepted, and I reminded him that it'd require him to visit a school in person. I asked him, "Are you sure you'd be willing to do that?" Without hesitation he looked at me and said, "For Pencils of Promise? 100%." From then on I just ran full steam at making this a reality, and as usual we've had a blast together.
Adam told me that when they first started working on this project, there were 75 million children worldwide without ACCESS to education. That number was staggering to both Justin and himself, and The Biebs knew he was in a unique position to reach out and make change. Now, it's the results of their efforts that are staggering.
In just 2.5 years PoP has broken ground on nearly 40 schools in the developing world, created a movement of over 250,000 individuals and delivered more than 1 million student educational hours in our classrooms. Our goal is to break ground on 100 schools by the end of 2012, and through campaigns like Schools4All we're excited to watch that become a reality.
The ultimate goal of PoP is to grow the movement towards quality education for every child on the planet. We do so by building schools on the ground and hopefully putting out a model for others to replicate, and also by training a new generation of young leaders to take action at home and abroad. We talk a lot about how one person can make a change but only together can we change the world.
Well, Pencils of Promise, their little fundraiser that could has now raised over $200,000.00 for Schools 4 All, and we want to make sure that we help them hit ohhhhh...what do you think, like a quarter million by midnight? I think we BlogHers have the social media wherewithall to make that happen, don't you?

Normal school fundraiser vies to bring Justin Bieber to town

NORMAL -- Epiphany School in Normal may be penciling in a visit by pop superstar Justin Bieber.
Epiphany School in Normal is participating in a fundraising contest in which the grand prize is a local appearance by pop superstar Justin Bieber.

The personal appearance is the grand prize for schools participating in the singer's personally endorsed Pencils of Promise fundraising campaign.
Pencils of Promise, also known as PoP, provides money for the building of schools around the world and creating educational opportunities for underprivileged children.
As of today, a dozen seventh-grade girls representing Epiphany School had raised more than $5,000 over the past two months, with $3,000 of that total collected in the last three days alone, said Michelle Massey, mother of one of the girls, Christine Travis.
Epiphany is currently ranked at around seventh place among schools across the country participating.
"I think it's amazing what they've done," Massey said.
Though Bieber originally said he would visit only the No. 1 fund-raising school, he has since amended that promise to visiting the top five schools, said Massey.
The Epiphany girls have until 10:59 p.m. Thursday to raise more funds and crack the Top 5.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez share 'I love yous' in public

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are officially in love! That’s according to a source who saw the young stars using the L word repeatedly during a shopping trip in New York City yesterday.



A source tells Hollywood Life the couple dropped by Armani Exchange yesterday evening and were affectionate during the visit. A fan captured a blurry photo and posted it online to confirm their appearance.

“Justin and Selena were holding hands as they shopped and said ‘I love you’ to each other not once, but several times in public. Everyone could hear them,” the source tells the site. “I guess they want to share their love with the world.”

The source continued, “Justin’s bodyguard wouldn’t let anyone get to close to them, but that didn’t stop them from showing off their affection for each other. They were just in their own world … Dazed and in love!”

It’s no surprise that the teens would be in love since they’ve been dating so long, but using the L word publicly is a new development.

For the curious, Bieber and Gomez stopped by at 5:30PM and stayed for about 20 minutes. Justin bought six t-shirts, three in gray and three in white.

Selena Gomez disses Someday?

Justin Bieber gave his girlfriend Selena Gomez a bottle of his new perfume, Someday, but the starlet won’t wear it! 
Justin Bieber was so excited about his new perfume, Someday, that he gave a bottle to his girlfriend Selena Gomez and to his mom.

"Selena has got a bottle but she stopped wearing it when she realized Justin’s mother was wearing it too," a source said. "Selena doesn’t want to smell like Justin’s mom and she feels the scent is more for his fans anyway."
Bieber said he developed the scent of the fragrance "100 percent" and said he loves the way it smells. "If I was at a meet-and-greet and smelled this on a certain someone, then I would be like, 'Wow, that smells really good.'"
Talk about a good promoter! You know every girl out there with Bieber fever will be dousing herself with Someday perfume before a Justin Bieber concert.
He told People that the name is inspired by fulfilling your dreams in life. "It explains a dream. Someday I will drive a BMW. Someday I will be an astronaut."
The Biebs revealed he is sticking to female fragrances... for now. "I’m not opposed to it," Bieber said about creating a male scent, "but I’m more into how females smell."
Is he offended by Selena’s refusal to wear his perfume? I can understand her reservations -- and, honestly, I’m kind of surprised she hasn’t launched her own perfume.

“It is tragic that almost on a daily basis there are reports of deaths and severe injuries caused by drivers who are texting and driving,” the singer said in a statement. “We need to change the attitudes in our society toward texting and driving and I am making it one of my personal goals to make this happen.

Justin Bieber raises nearly 200k for Pencils of Promise Organization

Canadian cutie, Justin Bieber, is lending his name to an organization that helps establish schools in areas where education is not readily available for children. Pencils of Promise is a nonprofit charity created by Adam Braun. Braun is hoping Justin’s attachment to the charity will help raise funds for more schools to be built in third world countries. PoP has already built 30 schools.




Justin’s involvement with the actual fundraising is minimal. He just happens to be the prize waiting for the lucky few who raise the most money for the cause. Braun estimates more than 75 million children are not given the opportunity for an education. Something that most people in developed countries could not fathom.

Justin Bieber and Braun got together and created the “Schools 4 All” campaign. Young people are challenged with the task of creating personal fundraising pages in an effort to raise donations for the cause. Whoever raises the most money will get a visit from Justin and Braun to the school of their choice. What an amazing motivator for kids everywhere.

PoP believes it can change the world for the better with just one pencil at a time. The campaign started on April 15th and wraps up on June 30th. The 17-year-old singing sensation sat down to film a short clip promoting the cause with founder, Braun.

So far, the campaign has raised a staggering $192,609 dollars. These funds will build 9 new schools. Katrina Davies is leading the charge with an amazing $17,545! You go girl! Only 2 days are left, and anybody can help out our favorite Canadian by donating to PoP. It looks like Miss Davies is about to meet one of the biggest stars on the planet.
