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.

Words I never thought I'd say: Justin Bieber has a point. The pop star this week called on lawmakers to crack down on thuggish paparazzi behavior after a photographer was killed in a traffic accident while stalking Bieber's Ferrari in West Los Angeles. Bieber wasn't behind the wheel at the time. "Hopefully this tragedy will finally inspire meaningful legislation and whatever other necessary steps to protect the lives and safety of celebrities, police officers, innocent public bystanders and the photographers themselves," he said in a statement.

Justin Bieber and his collection of exotic cars have been tantalizing targets for celebrity photographers ever since the young singer got his driver's license. A video captured the paparazzi chasing Bieber through Westside traffic in November. When Bieber's white Ferrari stops at an intersection, the video shows the singer turning to one of the photographers and asking: "How do your parents feel about what you do?" A few months earlier, he was at the wheel of his Fisker sports car when a California Highway Patrol officer pulled him over for driving at high speeds while trying to outrun a paparazzo.

A photographer was hit by a car and killed Tuesday after taking shots of Justin Bieber's white Ferrari while it was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol, authorities said. Police are interviewing the motorist who hit the 29-year-old man but no arrests have been made. Bieber was not in the car. The photographer died at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. A friend of the photographer told KCAL-TV Channel 9 that he was not a professional. The incident took place on Sepulveda Boulevard near Getty Center Drive shortly before 6 p.m. A friend of Bieber was driving the sports car when it was pulled over on the 405 Freeway by the CHP for a traffic stop, according to LAPD Sgt. Rudy Lopez.

Is Miley Cyrus married? That's the question being asked after the pop star -- who's been engaged to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth since last summer -- tweeted a photo on Christmas in which she appears to be wearing what might be a wedding band. (This is what we in the business call a slow news week, folks.) Far more interesting than any potential nuptials, Cyrus also posted a new video to her YouTube account, the latest chapter in her ongoing "Backyard Sessions" performance series.

Pop star and singing competition judge Britney Spears has bought the Thousand Oaks home of former professional hockey player Russ Courtnall and his wife, actress Paris Vaughan. The property came on the market in August at $8.5 million and was withdrawn from the Multiple Listing Service within a month. A withdrawal is a tactic sometimes used to hide celebrity home purchases. The sales price was not disclosed. The Mediterranean-style house, built in 2010, is in the Lake Sherwood area.

Ke$ha is calling her upcoming album "Warrior," so we can't be surprised to find the pop star busting up chairs and kicking down doors in the music video for the disc's lead single, "Die Young. " But that hardly means that the clip, posted to YouTube on Thursday, fails to raise eyebrows. A fast-moving pastiche of occult imagery, Nat Geo-style wolf footage and lots (and lots!) of black leather, it presents a darker, sexier version of Ke$ha than we saw back in the party-starting "TiK ToK" days.

Britney Spears is in talks to write a novel. Really? Really. That's according to the Hollywood Reporter, which writes, "That's right, Britney Spears is close to signing a book deal ... with plans to write a novel.... The story would incorporate fictionalized versions of her own experiences. " Spears would be following in the high-heeled footsteps of Lauren Conrad, whose novel "L.A. Candy" had commonalities with her own life. And of Bethenny Frankel, known for being on Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York City" and founding the Skinny Girl line of drinks, whose novel "Skinnydipping" is about a woman entrepreneur who finds fame on a reality-television show.
