  • Justin Bieber: From Musical Artist to… Graffiti Artist?

    Justin Bieber (Instagram)Banksy he's not.

    Justin Bieber revealed his new pastime to fans early Thursday morning, posting a series of photos to Instagram in which he's exercising his graffiti skills.

    "I found a new hobby," the 19-year-old singer wrote in one pic, which is of a hand — presumably his own — covered with spray paint.

    So long, flowing locks!

    America's favorite "Baywatch" babe, Pamela Anderson, debuted a drastic new look in L.A. Wednesday when she stepped out sporting a close-cropped pixie haircut.

    The 46-year-old actress, who has always been known for her beach-ready bod and long blond tresses, was almost unrecognizable as she revealed her newly shorn locks while wearing big black sunglasses and a modest striped tank and cardigan combo. But she didn't change everything! Anderson's trademark bright blond hue survived the carnage.

    There is a catch to the change however; her super-short tresses highlight Pamela's defined cheekbones and jawline and make her easily mistakable for another actress (who could have been her haircut inspiration): Charlize Theron. The South African beauty has kept her blond locks short since shaving her head for her part in "Mad Max" in 2012.

    While debuting her new 'do, Anderson was accompanied by her ex-husband Rick Salomon, with whom she annulled her marriage in 2008. The duo

    Corey Haim's mother thinks "Coreyography" should just stick to the life of another Corey — Corey Feldman.

    Judy Haim, mom of the "Lost Boys" star who died in 2010, has slammed her son's former best friend for writing about Haim's history of sexual abuse in his new memoir. In "Coreyography," Feldman describes how Haim confided in him that he was molested on the set of one of his first films, 1986's "Lucas."

    "At some point during the filming, he explained, an adult male convinced him that it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was what all the ‘guys do,’" Feldman wrote. "So, they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers, during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be

  • Drake hasn't always been so skilled with the mic. (Christie Goodwin/Getty Images)Drake might be a big time rapper now – but his rhymes haven’t always been so slick.

    Before he emerged as Drizzy, we knew him simply as Aubrey Graham, who played Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian TV series “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”

    In season 3 of “Degrassi,” five years before Drake’s first EP “So Far Gone” hit store shelves in 2009, Jimmy and his pal Spinner (Shane Kippel) lay down some beats to prove they can defeat their friend Craig’s ex girlfriend in Battle of the Bands. The results are…questionable. Watch the embarrassing video below:

    Drake’s sure sounds a lot different now (thankfully!) Who would have thought that the guy who rapped about a girl shutting up and making lunch would become a superstar who now has a Grammy, four Junos and 10 BET Awards?

    Meanwhile, Drake may have “started from the bottom,” but he certainly hasn’t forgotten where he came from.  He celebrated his 27th birthday on Thursday, Oct. 25 with a performance in Toronto.

    “Toronto, I want to thank you for giving me

    Ryan Reynolds got an early 37th birthday present on Monday -- himself!

    The "R.I.P.D." star, who celebrated his big day on Wednesday, posed next to his Madame Tussauds Hollywood wax figure in New Orleans earlier this week, where he is currently filming his new movie "Selfless."

    “This is undoubtedly the largest and most spectacular birthday candle I've ever received," Reynolds said, according to E! Online.

    In a poll the wax museum launched on its Facebook page to find its next subject,

    William Shatner doesn't think he's a legend -- not yet, anyway.

    Almost five decades after he joined the theatre company in 1954, the 82-year-old Canadian actor was awarded the Stratford Festival's Legacy Award on Monday at Toronto's Four Seasons Hotel.

    Though Shatner spent three seasons performing in nine productions at Stratford (before he shot to fame as James T. Kirk in "Star Trek"), he doesn't think he deserves the same accolade given to veteran thespians Christopher Plummer and Maggie Smith.

    "This is really good, giving awards to living legends. But there's a problem, there's a problem -- I'm a legend in the making, OK?" Shatner quipped after receiving the award from actor Colm Feore, according to CTV News. The actor then added, "Chris Plummer is a legend. What an actor, what a man, what a buddy, he's fantastic. And Dame Maggie Smith, come on ... These are legends."

    Nothing was the same in Philadelphia after Drake canceled his concert on Saturday.

    The Toronto rapper upset local fans when his gig, which was set to begin at 7 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center, didn't start on time. Even worse, an hour and a half later, it was announced that the show wouldn't begin at all, and would instead be postponed until Dec. 18. According to NBC, a venue spokesperson claimed there was an "unexpected technical issue."

    "My apologies to Philly," Drake wrote on Instagram. "I was so ready to come see all of you but things happened beyond my control and a judgement call was made. I will see you all soon!"

    Local radio station Hot 107.9 reported that the set's "catwalk," the circular structure hanging above the floor, was "deemed not safe." A more popular rumour, spread by MediaTakeOut, suggested Drake was still upset about tour mate Future's uncharitable comments about his new album.

    "One of Drake's people said something to one of Future's people . . . and it POPPED," an insider told MediaTakeOut. "It was a lot of pushing, not many

    Can you believe a 33-year-old musician has gotten surgery to look like Justin Bieber? It's true: Toby Sheldon, a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles who has an aging phobia, has spent $100,000 in the past five years to look like the 19-year-old Canadian pop star.

    "Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, 'I want to look like him,'" Sheldon told the U.K. magazine Closer (via The Daily Mail).

    After a number of operations -- Botox, face fillers, a chin reduction, hair treatments, and eyelid and smile surgery -- Sheldon looks a little more like the Biebs than he did before.

    "I didn't necessarily listen to his music or fawn over him as a celebrity, but his face was just so flawless every change I made was modeled after him," said Sheldon, whose family lives in Germany and has no knowledge of his surgeries.

    Despite the time and money he has spent emulating the "Boyfriend" singer, Sheldon still plans to get more surgeries. "I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin Bieber's doppelganger like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested," he told the Mail.

    Still, it looks like the transformation is working for him. According to Sheldon, he has been mistaken for Bieber and was even recently turned away from a liquor store because the staff thought he was underage.

    His friends even have a new nickname for him: Toby Bieber.

  • Justin Bieber ‘Shocks’ Strippers With His Bad Boy Behavior

    Proof of Justin Bieber's wild night at a strip club. (Twitter)Justin Bieber is determined to be a bona fide bad boy, and so far he seems to be doing a pretty good job. Fresh off his eyebrow-raising visit to China's Great Wall, the 19-year-old star stopped by one of America's famed destinations — a strip club.

    On Friday, October 18, the Biebs partied it up at Club V in Houston, Texas, with a bevy of scantily clad … umm … ladies?

    Wearing bright red underpants, extremely low-slung jeans, and a leather jacket — which he seems to have misplaced at some point during the festivities — Justin was obviously out for a good time, reportedly "shocking" the strippers with his raunchy behavior. In case this isn't clear: That says something.

    Thanks to the wonder of social media, the whole night was documented for the world to enjoy.

    "I've Danced For A Lot of Celebrities And They Normally Don't Phase Me But Justin just Had Me In Shock!" @1real_diamond tweeted before declaring "I am now a @justinbieber Fan!"

    "He touched my ass I almost fainted," she posted early

    A self-described "proud Canadian," 26-year-old Drake recently sat down with radio host Jian Ghomeshi at the Glenn Gould Studio to promote his new album, "Nothing Was the Same." CBC aired the exclusive broadcast for the entire hour of "Q" on Thursday morning, in which Drizzy waxed lyrical and not-so-lyrical about his hometown.

    The "Started From the Bottom" rapper took issue with misconceptions about him having an easy life growing up in the wealthy neighborhood of Forest Hill. According to him, his family only lived there because his mother "was willing to live far beyond her means for her family." They rented the basement and first floor of a house.

    "I grew up with a mom who was deep in debt because she wanted best for family," Drake told Ghomeshi.

    In Forest Hill, he found being "biracial" was more of a concern than it was when he lived in the poorer section of Weston Road. "It was actually girls gave me a harder time than guys," he said.

    However, he admitted that later on in his career, being a black Jewish rapper wasn't something he had to overcome in Toronto. "I'm from a place that is true mosaic," Drake said. "To me, we're the most open-minded place you can find yourself."

    According to Drizzy, it was his dad
