Jessica Alba is Having Another Baby

Jessica Alba has announced she is expecting. The 29-year-old took to Facebook to announce her baby news. She told fans, "I thought I'd drop by to let you all in on some exciting news – Honor is going to be a Big Sister! Cash and I are thrilled and wanted to share the news directly with you so you didn't hear about it somewhere else." This is Alba’s second child with husband Cash Warren. [NY Daily News]

Justin Bieber Talks Sex, Abortion, and Evil America

For a 17-year-old pop star, Justin Bieber has a lot on his mind and he’s not afraid to share it. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the Biebster opened up about sex, abortion, and the health care system in the United States. On sex, Biebs is okay with doing it before marriage as long as you “wait for the person you're ... in love with.” On homosexuality, Bieber believes, “It's everyone's own decision to do that. It doesn't affect me and shouldn't affect anyone else.” Abortion is another matter and something the pint-sized pop star doesn’t “believe in.” He’s also not a fan of the health care system in the U.S, saying, “You guys are evil. Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills.” I hate to admit it, the Biebster has a point. [Rolling Stone]

Michael Vick Bails on Oprah

According to TMZ, “Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has canceled plans to do a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey in what would have been his first major interview since being released from prison.” Vick has yet to sit down to document the ups and downs of prison life, but did express his willingness to do so in the future.

Lance Armstrong Retires...Again

Remember when Lance Armstrong said he wasn’t going to be a professional bike rider anymore? Well, he did it again today. TSN notes “Almost a month after finishing 65th in his last competitive race in Australia, and nearly six years removed from the last of an unprecedented seven straight Tour de France titles, the 39-year-old cyclist made clear there is no reset button this time. 'Never say never,' Armstrong laughed at the start of an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Associated Press, then quickly added, ‘Just kidding.’" If he wants to come back, wouldn’t it be just like riding a bike?
