That's when the stage at an Anaheim high school collapsed Saturday night, injuring about two dozen students.

Still, questions remain about why the stage collapsed and whether anyone knew about a weight limit or other issues with the structure.

Dying to see Justin Bieber's junk? Well, a judge on Tuesday squashed those weird hopes, ruling that while additional surveillance video footage would indeed be made public, shots of the singer urinating must have his private parts blurred or blacked out.

Miami-Dade County Judge Bill Altfield told lawyers in court Tuesday that despite Florida's liberal privacy laws regarding evidence going public, Bieber "has not lost his expectation of dignity, and that's what's most important here.
