What started as an online TwitPic trend has now caught fire in Hollywood. Do you know what it is? I’ll give you hint. The idea is to appear light as a feather, but stiff as a board. Don’t get it yet? The best photos are done when you are propped between two objects. Did you guess planking? If you did, then you’re right. The trend has hit stars like Justin Bieber, Rosario Dawson and even Usher. But, one star in particular isn’t too found of the term nor the trend. Xzibit took to Twitter yesterday to express his disinterest in planking.

“Planking is THE dumbest sh-t ever. #Planking was a way to transport slaves on ships during the slave trade, its not funny. Educate.”

Is this true? I’m not sure so I took to two really trusty sources of information: Google and Wikipedia to get an answer. While the exact term planking may not have been used by slave traders, the physicality of the online game does bare some resemblance however. Slaves were forced to lay face-down on wooden beds with their arms pressed against their sides, chained to their waist. Often, they were stacked on top of each other without room to move.

Alright, so Xzibit may have seen the similarities however, I don’t think the initial intention of the game was to offend anyone or any race. The game did incur a casualty in Australia after a man fell seven stories attempting to plank on his balcony. Yikes. Let me just, please practice safe planking. Now check out some celebs planking below.

Bieber’s Vanity Fair Cover Bombs

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Oh oh. Are we seeing the end of Bieber Fever? Too bad since I recently just caught a bit of it after watching his film Never Say Never. However, as a wise man once said, the numbers don’t lie and unfortunately for Bieber, they didn’t fair well for his Vanity Fair cover issue. Vanity Fair is claiming that issue with an over-kissed Justin on the front was their worst selling issue in 12 years. YIKES!

According to WWD, the magazine sold 246,000 copies. It’s the not the worst selling Vanity Fair issue however. Will Smith’s cover depicting him on a black stallion and promoting his movie Wild Wild West sold less than that and a 1993 cover with Harrison Ford also only sold just above the 200,000 margin.

While Justin Bieber seems to turn everything he touches into gold, it looks like it couldn’t even save his Vanity Fair cover. Maybe VF readers are too old to appreciate Justin’s youthful appeal. Maybe Bieber’s army of loyal fans and supporters aren’t big magazine buyers or subscribers.

Last week, Patrick and I check out Justin Bieber: Never Say Never for the first time. I knew the kid was made of pure talent but watching that movie made me appreciate him even more. The path that he took from small town YouTube star to worldwide phenomenon is absolutely incredible. Not to mention he sings pretty catchy songs and is a really entertaining performing. With the success of his first album comes the challenge to create the second album.

Bieber recently told MTV News that he is taking his time to perfect his next album. In between performing on stage and radio and television performances, Bieber says he’s spending a lot of time writing music and wants to work a lot on this album with none other than, himself. He will still work with producers and everything but wants to write a majority of the content. In doing all of this, the Biebs feels no pressure to complete his album anytime soon.

He’s been producing a lot of music on his laptop he tells MTV and seems to be really into it wanting this next album to huge. If Justin’s fans stick by his side (as I am sure they will), then Justin will have no problem making this second album a success. He seems to have the Midas touch and a real good camp in his corner to keep him a hard worker. You have to admire that. So what can we expect from album #2? We’ve recently seen him collaborate with Chris Brown and Kanye West. Is a collaboration with Selena Gomez on the horizon?

“I’ve done a lot on my acoustic guitar, so it’s gonna have that vibe. I’m not gonna really limit myself. I think music is music, and genre — I mean, I know there’s country music, there’s rock music, but my music is different. My voice is not meant for any style. I just want to make music.”

Kelly Kapowski Hearts The Biebs

Better watch out Zach Morris, Justin Bieber is encroaching on your territory. Tiffani-Amber Thiessen wore a Bieber tee at the premiere of Horrible Bosses in New York City last night. The former Kelly Kapowski actress did it to return the love Justin showed when he wore a t-shirt of her character at the MuchMusic Awards in Toronto a few weeks ago.

“I got calls from a million people last Sunday that Justin Bieber wore a T-shirt with my image,” Thiessen tells Zap2it. “I thought it would be a funny back-at-cha moment if I got a T-shirt and wore it to a premiere.”

Thiessen who is currently starring on USA’s “White Collar” admits she has Bieber Fever and thinks his girlfriend, Selena Gomez, is adorable as well. Here’s a little reality check on how young the “Baby” singer is. “Saved By The Bell” aired from 1989 til 1993. The teen heartthrob was born a year later in 1994. GOD, I’M OLD.

In town to promote his new fragrance, Justin Bieber stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night to participate in the “Top 10“. The topic this time was, “Top 10 Little Known Facts About Justin Bieber”. Bieber seemed a little awkward slash shy in front of Letterman and the audience, but adorable nonetheless. Letterman cracked age jokes at him, telling him to stop throwing the newspaper on his lawn and even asking him if he actually knew who he was. Well, one of the points in the Top 10 list addresses that…

Girls swarmed the outside of the studios prior to the taping that took place yesterday afternoon, hoping to catch a glimpse of Bieber. In one of the random facts in his list, Bieber joked, “Last week I accidentally waited in line for two hours for my own autograph.” LOL. Check it out below – it’s actually pretty funny.

2011 MuchMusic Video Awards: And The Winners Are…

In: Music, Patrick

Last night, the 2011 MuchMusic Video Awards took place in Toronto, and was co-hosted by Selena Gomez. Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga opened up the show with her new single “The Edge Of Glory”. Although the set was similar to her new music video for the song, I was much more entertained by this live performance as she had a bunch of backup dancers to interact with. It was a great way to kick off the show! After her performance, Far East Movement and Dev performed, followed by Snoop Dogg. I have to say, year after year, this award show keeps getting better and better. Oh, and Lady Gaga also closed the show with an encore performance, singing “Born This Way”.

One thing that did bother me was when Vampire Diaries star, Nina Dobrev was onstage as a presenter (before her boyfriend Ian Somerhalder joined her). When talking about the lively crowd in at the show, she essentially said that Toronto knew to celebrate, unlike Vancouver. Then said “Too soon?” Ugh, annoying.

The Video of the Year went to Shawn Desman for “Electric/Night Like This“, directed by RT (the man behind six of this year’s nominated videos). Superstars, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber each picked up two awards. Check out the full list of winners below.

During Tuesday’s Glee season finale, Justin Bieber‘s commercial for his perfume “Someday” will be debuting for the first time – but we’ve got your first look now. Yes, you read that right. Justin Bieber has a perfume (following in Usher’s footsteps) and now people will be able to diagnose Bieber Fever by way of smell. I wonder if he has plans to make a male cologne. Better yet, I wonder if he’ll make Selena Gomez wear his perfume.

In the commercial, a girl sprays a few shots of “Someday” on herself and Justin Bieber appears and whisks her away into the clouds, Peter Pan style. Yes, that’s exactly what will happen girls. Parents of these tweens better be ready for their home to smell like the new fragrance, as these girls will likely religiously spray the magic Bieber spray in the hopes Peter Pan Pop Star will “Someday” swing by their window. It’s like “Never Say Never” meets “Never Never Land”. Check it out below!

Last night, the Billboard Music Awards had Vegas all shook up at the MGM Grand with performances by the chart toppers of the last year. No doubt about it, Vegas knows how to party and who better to host a party in Vegas than Hangover 2 star Ken Jeong. He introduced himself with a great little musical cabaret number featuring Nicki Minaj and the lead singer of Train. Truly entertaining and the lyrics were hilarious.

The night was littered with performances very heavy on the pop/dance genre. We were treated to a little S&M from Rihanna who was then joined by Britney to round off the performance. Side note: Britney’s bod is looking real good. Cee-Lo’s performance was outstanding while Ke$ha brought the party as per usual with a herd of men dressed as red horses. Nicki Minaj returned to the stage to perform her new single Superbass and was joined by Ms. Spears who sang lip synced Till The World Ends.

The performance of the night for me definitely goes to the epic multimedia performance from Beyoncé who was the recipient of the Millennium Award. Prior to her performance she was honored in a video montage from Barbara Streisand, Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and more. After building her nation on a giant white screen behind her, she was joined by an army of women who followed their leader with military dance move precision. By the way, did anyone else catch Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s little smooch?
