The price first-time homeowner Justin Bieber paid for his new digs in Calabasas has wended its way into the public record: $6.5 million. Set on 1.3 acres in a gated community, the 10,000-square-foot main house is described as "transitional French" in style. Features include a high-ceiling foyer, library, a movie theater with stadium seating, a wet bar and a wine cellar. Just what every 18-year-old pop singer needs. Including a guesthouse, there are seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

OK, so going to the movies isn't what it used to be. Gone are the days of lumpy seats, scratchy sound and views of the person's head in front of you. But one thing never seems to change: complaints about skyrocketing ticket prices, especially from groups and families who want an evening out catching the latest Hollywood release as they feast on popcorn, candy and soda pop.

The Justice Department accused the AMC movie theater chain Friday of failing to provide wheelchair users access to stadium-style seating. A lawsuit filed in Los Angeles federal court charges AMC, one of the largest movie chains in the country, with violating the Americans With Disabilities Act. "This is a matter of basic fairness," said Bill Lann Lee, acting assistant attorney general for civil rights. "People who use wheelchairs go to the movies and pay the same prices as everyone else.

With padded seats, food and drinks on the table in front of him, and the field a few feet away, Ron Eshel gave the Dodgers' new luxury boxes thumbs up. "The only thing they're missing is umbrellas," Eshel said as rain dampened Dodger Stadium before Friday's Freeway Series game against the Angels. The Dodgers unveiled new luxury seats last year too, in the same location, beyond the dugouts at field level.

Ever on the lookout for that first Pulitzer, I find myself at something called Bleacher Beach at Dodger Stadium. Amazing the places investigative journalism takes you. By now, you've probably heard of Bleacher Beach. Screened from the rest of Dodger Stadium, the beach is far, far, far down the third base line, then a couple of levels up -- high as a pop fly. If I get a nosebleed here, it will no doubt drip Dodger blue.

The stars come and go. They bleed Dodger Blue one year, and another color the next. They send home runs over the fence and win a space in our hearts -- and then they do something dumb like fail a drug test. Manny Ramirez was earning $25 million this year until his suspension last week. But the Dodgers don't need to pay that money to keep this fan. What I go to Dodger Stadium to see doesn't cost owner Frank McCourt a penny. I go to Dodger Stadium for the twilight.

Justin Bieber may sue guests who visit his home if they violate his non-disclosure agreement. It's all so very hospitable. The 19-year-old pop star is asking for $5 million in damages if guests violate a waiver he's having everyone who visits his Calabasas home sign, according to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the liability waiver and release form. So, basically, don't talk about the property or anything that goes on there ... ever. Before you jump on the "Bieber is an egomaniac" bandwagon, just know that documents like this are fairly common among celebrities.
