Justin Bieber: immature fool or racist? You decide. The Confident singer, 20, is apologizing again for racially insensitive comments in a second video that’s emerged recently. This clip, posted first by TMZ, shows a 14-year-old Bieber replacing the last word of the title lyric to his 2009 hit One Less Lonely Girl to the N-word and mentioning the Ku Klux Klan.

“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with,” read his statement “I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes...” One guy in his corner is Russell Brand. On his YouTube show, The Trews, the comedian says, “It was ages ago when he used to have that haircut. You can’t do him for stuff he [has] done when he had that haircut.”

Cash cows

Could Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott be that hard-up that they are faking marital problems? Sure seems like it. Next stunt is to renew their vows in front of cameras. An insider close to the couple tells Life & Style: “It’s not for them, it’s for ratings and money.” They’ve already done the exchanging vows thing on their other reality show Tori & Dean, to boost ratings.

Glitter saga

British prosecutors are charging Gary Glitter with eight sex offenses involving teenage girls. The charges against the former pop star (born Paul Gadd), are related to two women aged 12 and 14 at the time of the alleged offenses between 1977 and 1980. The 70-year-old was arrested in 2012 amid a national investigation that was launched in the wake of a child abuse scandal surrounding late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile.

Going public

More than a year after filing for divorce from high school sweetheart Jessica Ussery, Jason Aldean made his first red carpet appearance holding hands with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr at the CMT Music Awards. A video taken of Aldean's sloppy bar kiss with the former NBA cheerleader in September 2012 ultimately ended his marriage with Ussery, with whom he has two kids.

    From ‘Downton Abbey,’ Dan Stevens goes to being a most welcome ‘Guest’

    It’s been almost two years since Dan Stevens’ beloved Downton Abbey character, Matthew Crawley, met with an untimely end, and some die-hard fans of the PBS costume drama still may not quite be over it. But for the 31-year-old British actor, Crawley’s tragic death marked a kind of rebirth – or at least a chance to strike out in some very different directions as an actor.
