Justin Bieber Gets His High School Diploma; in Other News, You Are a Dillion Years Old

Apparently Justin Bieber was listed in the commencement ceremony at St. Michael Catholic Secondary School in Stratford, Ontario last Thursday (yes, I'm sure he attended many classes), but he did not attend, and nobody spoke of it because "Justin chose to keep aspects of his education quiet." He has not announced plans to attend college. He also got hella mad and hung up on a radio host for making a dumb joke about One Direction. Because he is a grown-up. The exchange is actually kind of hilarious if you feel like listening to it. (Basically the radio host implies that One Direction might like to bang Justin Bieber's mom because they "like older ladies." Then Justin Bieber gets huffy and goes, "you should worry about them and YOUR mom, bro!" And the host says, "Actually, my mom's dead." Awkward silence. Click.) [NYT] [Buzzfeed]


Uuuuuuuuuugh, here's what Katie Holmes did today. (Spoiler alert: none of it is interesting!) She went outside "looking tense" and not wearing her wedding ring. She taped an appearance as a guest judge on Project Runway: All Stars. Isaac Mizrahi declared her to be "great." She failed to emerge from her hotel at the correct time, causing hungry paparazzi to swarm her next door neighbor, who reportedly wore a bow-tie and a yellow hat and "railed against the Scientology 'goons.'" Then he scampered off in search of his mischievous monkey son. [DailyMail] [THR] [DailyIntel]
