Justin Bieber, we KNOW you have the money…
singer bailed on a $130 bar tab after a heated exchange that nearly turned into full-blown fight. It’s weird, just when it feels like he’s gaining a little maturity the dude step back into teenager-dom. Here’s the scoop, according to TMZ:
Justin kicked off his tour in Seattle Wednesday night, but on Sunday night he and 7 pals hit up The Whisky Bar and ordered a round of shots. Sources at the bar tell us they asked for a mid-range blend and got GlenDronach … a 12-year-old single malt scotch, $15 per shot.
We’re told the group went out for a smoke and never came back to pay the bill, but they were all caught on surveillance cams.
One member of JB’s entourage tells us trouble started when a female fan wanted a pic, but was denied by one of Bieber’s dancers. That’s when a guy with her got pissed, and started yelling and making a scene. We’re told Justin’s group decided it was best to get outta Dodge before a fight started.
Our source says one of Justin’s bodyguards was supposed to pay, but obviously didn’t in the chaos. We’re told they settled up with the bar Wednesday night.
Hmmm, yeah, good to avoid a fight but probably even better to pay what you owe before you leave, bro.

Seems like Kesha can’t get out of her contract, but her abuser can?
Sony Music is expected to end its working relationship with controversial producer Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald a year ahead of his contract’s expiration, TheWrap reports. While Dr. Luke’s people are deny deny denying this is true, I’m not sure what to believe.
A legal representative for Gottwald issued this statement:
“This is not true. Luke has an excellent relationship with Sony. His representatives are in regular contact with executives at the highest levels at Sony and this has never come up.”
Since Kesha’s sexual abuse allegations against Gottwald have resulted in a nasty court battle people like Adele, Lady Gaga and Kelly Clarkson have had Kesha’s back, which I guess intimidated Sony into doing SOMETHING, though Sony’s been famously mum on the matter.
We’re pretty sure Dr. Luke is getting fired, but nothing official yet.

Bradley Cooper is learning what directing is all about…money and surprises!
The actor’s directing debut, a remake of “A Star Is Born,” has fallen through after his rumored co-star wanted too much money for the role.
The “American Sniper” star was going to direct and star in the remake of the 1950s Judy Garland musical alongside a VERY famous woman, but it just didn’t pan out. So who’s the star who’s causing such a fuss?
Find out, after the jump!

Melissa McCarthy is on the cover April’s Redbook Magazine, breaking hearts and taking names!
She’s promoting her film The Boss costarring Kristen Bell, which is out April 6th and her clothing line, which isn’t plus-sized specifically, just offers more range in the larger sizes. But she didn’t just promote her projects- she got REAL about feminism, body image, and her kids. Here are the highlights:
On talking to her daughters about body image
“Give me your best punch in the face, and I’ll take that punch, rather than have my kid feel bad about herself….There’s an epidemic in our country of girls and women feeling bad about themselves based on what .5% of the human race looks like. It starts very young. My message is that as long as everybody’s healthy, enjoy and embrace whatever body type you have.”
Her thoughts on young women who say, “I am not a feminist”
“I always think, ‘Oh, that sounds so dumb.’ And I don’t mean that in a hateful way. It just sounds so ill-informed. Do you think women should be paid less? You don’t believe in equality for women? I think people have worked hard to put a negative spin on the word.”
Why we should stop judging each other
“With women, there’s this constant weird cultural thing where we’re always supposed to be comparing ourselves with one another. Who wore it best? Whose butt’s better? Instead, how about if everyone wins? How intensely boring would it be if we were all the same?”
On the importance of all women feeling comfortable and stylish in their clothes
“A good portion of women in America are size 14 and higher. I just try to make clothing that’ll make all women feel really good….When I feel good about my clothes, I’m more patient with my kids. I don’t beep at the guy in his car texting in front of me. I look at the world a little differently. The small happy moments add up. A little bit of joy goes a long way.”
Lot of wisdom gong on up in here. I’m excited to see her movie but I also kinda dig her clothing line– she’s got some seriously cute stuff up in there.
What do YOU think of her interview?
