Kim Kardashian Would Date Justin Bieber
Kim Kardashian would totally date Justin Bieber… if he was of legal age. The reality television star, who recently appeared with Bieber in a controversial Elle magazine shoot, appeared on Lopez Tonight and admitted she would definitely date the "Baby, Baby" singer. She told host George Lopez, “He definitely has this swag to him. You just have to meet him.” Karsdashian said she enjoyed working with Bieber, saying, “I thought that the shoot was all in fun. We had a good time.” That photo shoot caught the ire of FOX News anchor Bill O’Reilly who blasted the suggestive shoot, labeling it "gross." Kim responded to the controversy by saying everyone is entitled to their opinion. Justin Bieber, 16, only has two years to wait until his big date. Those two years are going to seem like a lifetime.

Drew Barrymore Calls Reporter the B-Word
The repetitive nature of press junkets has finally gotten to Drew Barrymore. The actress got fiery in London after a reporter got a little too personal and enquired about her wild past. Drew was apparently polite, but once the reporter left she mouthed off to a reporter from the London Daily Standard. Drew called the previous reporter a “bitch” and proceeded to embark on a tirade, listing all the violent things she’d do to her. Here’s what she said, according to the reporter from the London Daily Standard, "You should have heard this bitch I had to do an interview with before you. God, I wanted to punch her, she would just not drop the youth thing. I have no problem talking about it. I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I'm actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they in turn were my life lessons. It's actually good to get it done young and have a great life later. But yeah, man, I wanted to rip this woman's face off. She just would not shut up about it.” Yikes. You don’t wanna mess with the Drew. [This Is London]

Bud Selig Decides to Honor a Truly Great Man
MLB commissioner Bud Selig - in his infinite wisdom - has approved a massive statue in the Milwaukee area honoring one of the greatest men to have ever lived. Of course, we are talking about Bud Selig. The former Brewers owner and current (mildly effective) league boss approved a giant bust of himself placed outside the team's ballpark for pigeons and disgruntled fans to urinate on for years to come.

Tiger's Ex-Wife Decides to Talk
For months, Elin Nordegren has held her silence over a shattered marriage. Luckily for all the Nordegren fans out there, People was able to break her silence. "I felt stupid as more things were revealed -- how could I not have known anything?" Nordegren said. "The word betrayal isn't strong enough. I felt like my whole world had fallen apart. It seemed that my world as I thought it was had never existed. I felt embarrassed for having been so deceived. I felt betrayed by many people around me." Yeah, kind of a downer. [ESPN]
