At least Lakers fans had one entertaining moment Tuesday evening. While their team was being routed by the San Antonio Spurs, Justin Bieber's face was featured on the kiss-cam. The perfectly coiffed 18-year-old probably elicited far more screams than a win would have anyway. Bieber, a faithful supporter of the team, told The Times that he remained optimistic about their chances to go far in the playoffs.  "Hopefully they go all the way," Bieber said.

Surveillance video obtained by detectives investigating Justin Bieber allegedly shows him high-fiving friends moments after eggs were thrown at his ex-neighbor's house in Calabasas, an investigator wrote in an affidavit. Los Angeles County prosecutors are considering whether to charge the 20-year-old Canadian-born recording artist with felony vandalism after a neighbor reported the eggs caused several thousand dollars in permanent damage to his home. Bieber, through his attorney, has denied any wrongdoing.

New photos of Justin Beiber have surfaced. Ahem, naked photos. Come again? The booty-baring (and slightly NSFW) pics were taken at his grandmother's house in Toronto last Thanksgiving. The uber cutie - well, that depends on who you ask - woke up from a holiday nap and had a brilliant idea. So brilliant in fact, he decided to test it on Grandma. He nuded up, grabbed his guitar, conveniently placed it where he needed to place it and serenaded away, giving those vocal cords quite the run. “I loooove you, Grandmaaaa, how are youuuu, hellooo, Grandma,” were his lyrics of choice.

Justin Bieber didn't get to slide right through a U.S. Customs  and Border Control checkpoint at LAX upon his return from Japan, according to reports out Thursday.  After his arrival at approximately 1 p.m., the pop star was held up for hours by a secondary customs search while his entourage, luggage and ride home were seen waiting for him outside Los Angeles International Airport's Tom Bradley International terminal, TMZ  reported.  ...

What began as a parking issue has escalated into a sheriff's investigation for pop star Justin Bieber. The singer, 18, got into a scuffle with a photographer on Sunday in Calabasas. The photog was allegedly blocking the path of Justin's car as he was leaving a local mall, girlfriend Selena Gomez in tow. The paparazzo wouldn't budge and Bieber leapt from the vehicle. A "physical altercation" broke out, according to TMZ. Bieber bounced immediately after, driving off with Ms. Gomez while the photog called 911.  The altercation left the camera man with pain in his upper body.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is investigating an allegation that singer Justin Bieber threatened and assaulted a neighbor. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Tuesday the alleged battery did not involve “physical touching,” but he would not provide further details. The neighbor, who lives near Bieber on Prado Del Grandioso in Calabasas, alleged he was arguing with Bieber outside their homes when the altercation escalated. Sheriff's deputies arrived at 9:08 a.m. Tuesday to investigate, Whitmore said.

Los Angeles County sheriff's officials are defending their search of Justin Bieber's Calabasas home in response to accusations he egged his neighbor's house, saying the pop star was treated no differently than any other felony suspect. A dozen detectives searched Bieber's home beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday, during which eight people, including the singer, were detained, authorities said. "None of this has anything to do with him being a celebrity," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lt.

Looks as if Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have called it quits again, for good. "They had another huge fight, and Selena won't forgive him," one of multiple sources told Us magazine. The couple, who have been on-again-off-again for two years, had set off for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, to celebrate the New Year. But they got into a row about Bieber still seeing Victoria's Secret supermodel Barbara Palvin, who was said to be the cause of their original breakup in November, according to the New York Post's Cindy Adams.

"I know it hasn't been easy for us to talk with everyone being around," Justin Bieber says in his new song, "But this is personal, this is for me and you / And I want you to know that I still love you. " Is the teen-pop superstar using a totally public forum to privately address Selena Gomez, his on-again/off-again girlfriend? Only Bieber knows. What's clear to the rest of us, though, is that after a rocky summer in which he drew more attention with his offstage antics than with his music -- we'll never forget you, abandoned capuchin monkey -- Bieber is back to the business of making records.

To America -- that is to say, the United States -- I say: We owe our neighbors to the north an apology. For too long we have regarded Canadians as the nebbishes of North America -- a nicer, maybe wimpier version of ourselves, Pollyannas in parkas -- a mild-mannered country whose national police wear operetta-red tunics, whose dollar is almost always worth reassuringly less than ours, and whose culinary quirks extend to gravy on French fries....

The request: Kick Justin Bieber out of the United States of America. The White House's response: No. In case you hadn't been paying close attention to Bieber's citizenship status lately -- and really, who is? -- someone launched a petition on the White House's website in January asking officials to deport the 20-year-old Canadian pop megastar after his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and resisting arrest in Miami Beach. "We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked," read the plaintive prompt , which was mostly grammatical.

The first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has come and gone, but the tweets and Instagram photos will last forever (or at least until Weekend 2 kicks off Friday).

A homeless man jailed last week for trespassing on Selena Gomez's property late in March was arrested again Friday on suspicion of doing essentially the same thing just hours after he was released from jail.  Che Thomas Cruz, 20, was charged Monday with one felony count of stalking and one misdemeanor count of violation of a court protection order, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.  Cruz entered a no contest plea...

Rob Lowe knows what he's talking about when it comes to teen-dream fame and being too pretty to be taken seriously.  So should a few tears be shed over his tragic fate? Nope, it seems -- the 50-year-old isn't complaining, just explaining.  Lowe, who appears in the upcoming movie "Sex Tape" and is doing the rounds promoting his new book, "Love Life," sat with Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired Sunday night and said he has "tremendous empathy" for Justin Bieber, even as some in the world have begun to shut the door on the pop sensation (pretty much literally , in the case of some Miami nightclubs)

Seth Rogen has thrown in his lot with the Bieber bashers.  The "Neighbors" star, 31, stopped by Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live" on Wednesday, and the host asked him about a tweet he'd posted in January following Justin Bieber's arrest on suspicion of DUI in Miami. Sorry, guys, we can't republish the tweet here, but it involved Rogen calling the pop star "a piece of" something. The 20-year-old "Beauty and a Beat" singer's latest antics have further sullied his name.

What do Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney and Luke Bryan have in common? Well, they're all country artists. And they all made more money in the U.S. than Justin Bieber did in 2013, according to Billboard magazine. We point that out because, well, in the wake of Bieber's spoiled-brat deposition behavior revealed Monday, it's fun to see some grown-ups taking him to school professionally. Even if one of those grown-ups is only 24. And yes, that was just some gratuitous Bieber-bashing there.

A Justin Bieber concert promises many things: screaming tweens, exhausted parents, flashy footwork from the pop phenom and incredibly ear-shattering pyrotechnics (if those aforementioned screams don't kill you first). Bieber brought his “Believe” tour back to Staples on Monday night for the first of two sold-out shows - a previous leg of the trek stopped in L.A. last October - and for anyone with a self-earned degree in people watching, the spectacle in the audience is just as satisfying as what's unfolding onstage.

Justin Bieber, this is not how a loyal subject behaves. Slamming Prince William, that is. The Canadian-born Biebs, famous in part for his lush locks, stole a moment in a recent magazine interview to slam His Royal Highness Prince William for his thinning hair. "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia," the 18-year-old told British magazine Rolla Coaster ( via the Daily Mail). "I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Biebers. In video clips from a deposition taken last Thursday in Miami, Justin Bieber at 20 looks like little more than a petulant child - and attention to the clips might be getting under the singer's skin. "Love how some people love to twist and justify the horrible action of others. We all have a right to defend ourselves and feel harassed," he tweeted Monday, hours after the tapes started making the rounds. PHOTOS: Justin Bieber's tattoos The clips, culled by TMZ from 4½ hours of deposition footage (related to a paparazzo's lawsuit alleging he was attacked by one of the singer's bodyguards)
