The same could be said about singer (punk?) Justin Bieber at Game 7 of Heat/Pacers. The game was unwatchable after the 2nd quarter, with Miami leading by double digits the entire way. Then Justin Bieber was photographed looking like this, and GAME OVER. LeBron nearly hitting his head on the rim during this dunk, or Bieber’s silly hat-leather shirt combo? Paul George telling Mario Chalmers to stop flopping, or Bieber’s shades indoors? Now, an interesting detail of how the photo came to be, courtesy of the Miami Herald: Before the Heat game was even over, Youtie, who did post on her social media accounts that Bieber, who refused to be photographed until someone brought a Miami Heat dancer over, wasn’t the friendliest, she was getting threats from rabid fans The Big Lead

Wittman ended his conversation with reporters when he was asked if he had “Bieber fever.” “I know who he is,” Wittman said as he walked away. Webster said his daughter planned on attending the concert. “I said what up to him. I definitely respect him as an artist. I respect what he does, so I said, ‘Hi.’ My daughter has Bieber fever. I don’t.” Crawford isn’t a fan of Bieber or his music, but couldn’t help but ignore his celebrity as he drove to practice and pre-teen girls surrounded the arena holding signs and screaming. “He’s a popular guy,” Crawford said. “I seen all the little girls in there waiting on him before practice. So, you know, it’s definitely here.” When asked if he was sure if the fans weren’t waiting for him, Crawford had a long laugh before saying, “Nah. Not them young ones.” Washington Post

Though Justin Bieber's already sky-high profile has been raised over the last month, he spent much of it literally falling, whether it was in a hailstorm of slo-mo bullets on CSI or on the court of the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game, where it appeared he was tripped up by actor/hip-hop artist Common. Still, the Biebs was in the mood to forgive and forget on TMZ Live yesterday, where he assured Harvey Levin that he had no hard feelings toward Common and spun the NBA face-plant a different way: "He didn't push me to the ground. I tripped." New York Magazine

Justin Bieber was named MVP of the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game despite failing to lead his team to victory Friday. His eight points, two rebounds and four assists didn’t make him the star, either. If stat lines were the measuring stick in the voting, then ex-Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen would have won the award. But that’s what happens when the crowd votes for the MVP. Pippen scored more points (17) and led the Eastern Conference Celebrity All-Stars to a 54-49 victory, but it was the teen pop singer who won the crowd’s heart loing ago with his singing skills, not basketball skills. And he did all that without messing up his famous hairdo. Orange County Register
