Americans Think Justin Bieber is Headed for Rehab

The future does not look bright for Justin Bieber, not if a new poll is to be believed. The latest 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll asked, "How do you envision Justin Bieber at the age of 30?" The telephone poll of 11,000 people found that 30 percent believed Bieber would be in “celebrity rehab.” Not all poll participants thought the Biebster would follow the Lindsay Lohan handbook to fame. Some 18 percent thought he’d be married and living quietly by age 30, while 13 percent thought be still be playing packed stadiums. Another 12 percent thought he’d be fat and bald. Bieber is apparently aware of the dangers of fame at such a young age and is hoping to learn from others’ past mistakes. [CNN]

K-Fed Expecting Fifth Child

Kevin Federline is one virile man. The ex-husband of Britney Spears, and father of her two children, is reportedly expecting another child with current flame, ex-volleyball player Victoria Prince. Prince is currently five months pregnant and is expected to give birth this summer. This would be the former back-up dancer’s fifth child. K-Fed has two children with Moesha actress Shar Jackson and two boys with Spears. This would be Prince’s first child. [People]

According to her publicist, Beyonce will not be managed by her father Mathew Knowles from here on out. Beyonce and her daddy have apparently parted ways "on a business level." "I am grateful for everything he has taught me," Beyonce said in the statement. "I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hardworking entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps." There was no word on the reason behind the parting of ways, but Mathew Knowles announced in his own statement late Monday that the decision was mutual. Knowles has managed his daughter since late 1990s. Apparently, father does not always know best. [MTV]

Roger Ebert Predicted the Future of Movies Back in 1987

In a recent quote unearthed from 1987, legendary movie reviewer/journalist Roger Ebert had some pretty profound predictions for the future of the movie business. Ebert stated: “We will have high-definition, wide-screen television sets, and a push-button dialing system to order the movie you want at the time you want it. You'll not go to a video store but instead order a movie on demand and then pay for it. Videocassette tapes as we know them now will be obsolete both for showing prerecorded movies and for recording movies.” Roger Ebert went on to say that “people will record films on 8mm and will play them back using laser-disk/CD technology.” Too true. What can’t this guy do? [LA Times]
