'Tis a sad Christmas Day in the music industry. After telling a LA radio station that he planned to retire after his next album, Justin Bieber confirmed it on Twitter last eve.
My beloved beliebers I'm officially retiring
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) December 25, 2013
He will be joining the ranks of Garth Brooks, Jay Z, The Eagles, 50 Cent, and Cher, right before they came out of retirement to perform again. Here's hoping he does not further his career in racist graffiti. [NME]
In other quasi-retirement news, Jared Leto and acting are taking a break. [Inquisitr]
The Kardashian-Jenner Alliance held a Christmas Bash densely populated by floor-length dresses with thigh-high slits. [Too Fab]
Idris Elba walked away uninjured after FLIPPING a fucking CAR while filming a TV documentary "Idris Elba: King of Speed." JESUS, Dris, don't toy with fate like that. Hasn't the speed force taken enough from us this year?! [Bossip]
Pics of Robert Pattinson's Dior ad campaign you say? [GossipCop]
Jennifer Lawrence is AP's 2013 Entertainer of the Year! [StarPulse]
Meanwhile Joan Rivers has something to say (surprise!) about JLaw after Lawrence called out judge-y shows like Fashion Police.
"My New Year's resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down…I love that she's telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn't have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don't talk if you're doing it."
Just to reiterate: JOAN RIVERS IS TELLING JENNIFER LAWRENCE TO GROW UP. [Page Six]
Mother of Pearl! Bill Fagerbakke, better/only known as the voice of Patrick Star on Spongebob Squarepants, entered a property settlement agreement with his estranged wife who gets the $2.4 million family house while he gets to keep his $3100 security deposit on the home he's renting. It's always a bit strange hearing about the affairs of voice actors. [TMZ]
Behati Prinsloo took a picture of her fiancé Adam Levine covered in wrapping paper. Spoiler alert: He's not naked or anything. He's sort of just wearing it like a blanket. [US]
The photo of Jennifer Anniston with a GI Jane buzz cut is fake everyone. She did NOT shave her head to support her niece who has cancer. The national treasure that is The Anniston Hair is intact, everyone. [Page Six]
Katy Perry's tour rider is basically fancier version of the snacks you had for that party you threw after your high school debate team went to state quals. [WWTDD]
Have yourself a merry little round-up of how and where celebrities are spending their Christmas! [Page Six]
