Yeah, can you believe it? This good, honest-looking, not-at-all smarmy millionaire had some trouble with AUTHORITY at the world’s most hipsterist music fest!? Preposterous.
ANYHOW, though Justin Bieber has been on his best behavior and seems somewhat interested in not coming off as a pretentious dbag, this altercation at Coachella is uh, a bit of a slip-up in his plan. Justin and his entourage walked to the entrance where Drake was performing, when they were stopped by security and told the area was at capacity and they couldn’t come in. Bieber and his crew showed security they had the proper wristbands to gain entry, and then all hell broke loose. TMZ reports:
Eyewitnesses tell TMZ, Bieber argued with security, saying there was no way he could stand in a big crowd because he’d get bombarded by fans. Security wasn’t having it and told him to leave.
We’re told Bieber persisted and said he was personally invited by Drake and had been waiting all weekend to see him perform. Bieber didn’t stand down and security was pissed.
At that point a Coachella staffer came up to Bieber and said she would escort him inside the artist’s area. She grabbed Bieber by the arm and began walking him and his security team inside, when Coachella security came up from behind and put Bieber in a chokehold.
We’re told Bieber’s team got into it with security and the singer was then ordered to leave the festival.
Sources close to Bieber say he voluntarily left, and they’re considering taking legal action against the security guards.
What do you think- was security just being lame or was Justin being entitled? Working security at Coachella seems like pretty much the worst job in the world…so working security at Coachella while Justin Bieber and his entourage have a FIT? Sounds like a dream.

Another pratfall of fame…
TMZ reports that Gwen Stefani has a fan so obsessed, he threatened to kill himself because he couldn’t bear looking at photos showing her tripping…like, physically, her losing her balance while walking!
Yep…tis the season: for a 3-year restraining order, folks.
The man in question is Richard Portnoy, the same dude who showed up recently at her acupuncturist’s office to catch her walking in. But he’s done a lot more weirdo stuff than that- apparently he’s appeared at her home on many occasions with candy, flowers, cards and letters. Um. TMZ reports:
According to the testimony, Portnoy wrote her a letter saying he had concluded she wasn’t happy in her present life and he felt he could change that.
Portnoy is rich … he lives in a gated community and drives expensive cars, including a Porsche and a Mercedes.
As for the tripping incident, Portnoy showed up at Gwen’s doorstep, saw her dad and told him he had seen photos of her tripping, adding, if she was hurt, he didn’t know if he could go on living.
Gwen got that three-year restraining order, but hopefully she’ll get peace and this guy will get the mental help he needs. SCARY.

Oh man, I love a good weird-celebrity-chain restaurant story…
Marilyn Manson is outwardly denying that he instigated the EPIC fight that went down in a Canadian Denny’s. In fact, he claims he got sucker punched and plans to sue the guy who allegedly punched him?
TMZ reports that the rocker was enjoying his late night meal when two girls approached him and asked for a photo. Manson says he was super polite and never called either woman the “B” word, as witnesses have claimed. The next thing he knows, Marilyn says some dude came out of nowhere and hit him in the face? Manson says his security grabbed the guy, who then began screaming about blowing up Manson’s next concert.
In addition, Manson claims the attacker elbowed his makeup artist in her face and that they’re both going back to Alberta to press charges.
Um, this feels super strange to me. Like, I will be surprised if this is the full story. What do you think? Was Marilyn being a dick or did someone in that particular Denny’s have a belligerent streak? Or BOTH?

Ugh, I hate when crazies come out of the woodwork.
A random guy named Mark Halper says Sam Smith stole his hit song “Stay with Me,” and in a new lawsuit claims he cut a demo in 1986 of a song called “Don’t Throw Our Love Away.” He says it begins with the “phraseology and significant phrase, ‘stay with me.'”
Halper believes Sam Smith, (who uses the phrase “stay with me” 8 times in his hit) has ripped him off, but by HIS logic, it’s actually The Supremes that are being ripped off. In 1964, The Supremes recorded their massive hit, “Baby Love.” In the song, Diana Ross, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard repeatedly sing, “don’t throw our love away.” Therefore, The Supremes kinda own Mark Halper. Right?
This won’t stop Halper from going after Smith, plus a couple record labels. So what does he want? A recommendation to the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to acknowledge him with a Grammy.
This is what happens when you get super famous and successful, Sam- these type of people come after you!
