If there's not already a media-monitoring organization called "Biebwatch" that's specifically dedicated to combing the news for mentions of the illustrious Justin Bieber, then someone had better get on it — and quick, because The Biebs is blowing up! Today, right on the heels of the announcement that Justin is penning an illustrated memoir to be released in October, we heard the equally amazing news that His Beebness is going to star in a major 3D feature film about his life, which will be released in 2011.
No doubt Justin will handle his big-screen debut with the same confidence that he's handled pop superstardom (and the occasional run-in with a deadly revolving door), but we're more excited about what this movie could mean for the future of film — namely, all the spinoff sequels that Justin Bieber: Movie Star could bring to a theater near us. And because we love to be helpful, we've put together a list of five more Bieber movies that we'd love to see.
You're not imagining things, Crushers, there's yet another magazine cover with a nearly nude Lady Gaga hitting stands this summer. And much like the Rolling Stone and Cosmo issues before, Gaga doesn't just strip away her clothes.
Now, appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair, Gaga gets totally honest about hitting rock bottom a few years ago and who she is today.
We'll be honest, when we first learned that Rihanna was going to make her acting debut in the upcoming flick "Battleship" (based off the board game), we were pretty surprised.
We love Rihanna as a singer, but as an actress? Really? Of course, we probably shouldn't be too shocked. After all, It's not uncommon for musicians to make the big-screen leap. In fact, many pop-tarts have paved the way for Rihanna (although, not always successfully!).
After the jump, check out our list of singers who made Hollywood debuts and find out ones which one proved their big screen worth and which ones totally bombed.
For her latest music video, "Mine," due out very soon (we hope!), Taylor Swift has found another hottie to add to her roster of adorable music video love interests. British born Toby Hemingway will play the groom to Taylor's bride in her new video. But, let's not forget: Taylor has always had the best taste in guys for her videos.
Here, we take a look at some of the best.
"You Belong With Me": Lucas Till
He not only played her love interest in the video, but also in real life. And, Taylor has always been quick to praise the "Battle: Los Angeles" star. "[He] plays my love interest in the video, and he does such a great job," she said about working with the up-and-coming actor. "He's absolutely perfect for the part and really fun to be around, too."

When you are a teenage year old human boy, the inevitable is just around the corner. Weird changes start happen and your body begins to transform. For legions of fans everywhere, it’s the question that is embedded on everyone’s minds: Will puberty destroy Justin Bieber’s career??
OK, so it’s not like he’s turning into one of the "Twilight" werewolves or anything. He’s a real boy, and let’s face it, puberty happens. The 16 year-old says he remains confident that Bieber fever will continue to infect his fans, even while he’s sporting a beard (or rather when his voice gets deeper).
First she kissed a girl and she liked it. Then after "Waking Up In Vegas," she taught us all why "California Gurls" were fine, fresh and fierce. So, what's next for the "Teenage Dream" that is Katy Perry? Well, she's got plans to launch her own fragrance.
Katy will release Purr, inspired by her love of cats. (To be fair, we do love crazy cat ladies and this makes us love Katy Purry even more!) It will reportedly come in a perfume bottle shaped as a cat that even has jeweled eyes. WWD reports it will smell like peach, apple, jasmine, freesia, and musk. How much will it cost you to smell like Katy? $36! It will be available at Nordstrom stores this November.

Let me guess: you weren’t satisfied by Smule’s “Glee” app for iPhone and iPad and now you’re looking for yet another phenomenon that fuses television and gaming? Well, you’re in luck! With the release of the upcoming “Karaoke Revolution:Glee,” Gleeks everywhere will find an entirely new outlet to recreate infamous scenes from the show while polishing their pipes.
If the marriage between “Karaoke Revolution” and “Glee” sounds appealing to you and you don’t have a Wii, now would be the time to get one! The game will be available exclusively for Nintendo Wii, so it’s probably not worth waiting for it to reach other consoles. Using multiplayer singing, “Karaoke Revolution Glee” will feature harmonizing options that could make it the most addictive karaoke game yet (or the most frustrating, depending on your vocal skills, right?).
This news is a bit late hitting the film blog world, considering FearNet's Jen Yamato managed to hide it inside an interview with Wyck Godfrey from the "Eclipse" press junket posted on June 13 (sorry that we're guilty too, Jen, but kudos to you for getting this scoop a month before Deadline). Unfortunately, when Nikki Finke wrote her post to confirm that Amy Adams would indeed be playing Janis Joplin in a biopic, she failed to realize that the FearNet article was actually posted a month and two days before her own, not that same day as Nikki reported.
Scoop discrepancies behind, we have to admit we think Amy is a surprising choice to play the late, great female rocker. We don't have our doubts that Amy will be able to pull off an edgy enough performance to capture Janis' life, it's just… well, wasn't there anyone else who could have better played the part?
Since "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" finally wrapped last month, it left the young stars of the "Harry Potter" franchise in an interesting predicament: What do we do now? Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton were all chosen by J.K. Rowling more than a decade ago to star in the adaptations, but now those contracts are up, and they have the opportunity to explore other career paths that they see fit.
Dan is heading to Broadway and then starring in a thriller, while Emma is most likely to continue to dabble in fashion while attending Brown University, and Rupert is continuing his work in film with "Wild Target" and "Eddie the Eagle." As for Tom, it seems like he's going to be doing just about everything.

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
If Taylor Lautner's latest appearance as Jacob in "Eclipse" wasn't enough for you, those abs should do it! Taylor was spotted yesterday in Pennsylvania filming "Abduction," a thriller which will be released in 2011. The movie, which started filming a few weeks ago, also stars Maria Bello, Lily Collins and Alfred Molina. But, c’mon, we all know who we're really dying to see.
