    Please, just, no; Justin Bieber Tweets/Trolls Batman vs. Superman Script

    The Biebs is either the worst DC hero or the best internet troll of all time. After posting a photo to his Instagram account this morning, Bieber set the net on fire with speculation that he is somehow involved with the Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer-penned sequel to Man of Steel.

    John Darnielle Wrote a Song About Justin Bieber Because He Can Do Whatever He Wants [Video]

    I don't always write about Justin Bieber, but when I do it's because it gives me an excuse to write about John Darnielle. Bieber got into some trouble on tour recently, and he's been taking flak in the press for it, but that doesn't interest me. What does interest me is that the event in Bieber's life caused The Mountain Goats' Darnielle to write a song sort of defending Bieber from the press, and there's always more room in the world for another John Darnielle song -- even if it's about Justin Bieber.

    Sesame Street’s The Count Celebrates One Billion YouTube Views The Only Way He Knows How [Video]

    A few weeks ago I told you about Sesame Street's goal of hitting one billion views on YouTube to put them in the same pantheon as the likes of PSY's "Gangnam Style," Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber. As of Valentine's Day they were about 22 million views shy of their goal, so Telly pleaded for more views, promising a great "Top Secret" video when the goal was reached. Well guess what just happened. Check out this new Sesame Street video with The Count counting to one billion.

    Help Sesame Street Hit One Billion YouTube Views, Unlock a Secret Video

    The world is a better place because of Sesame Street. It's one of the most popular children's television shows of all time. It also has a huge number of YouTube views. As of 1:26 pm today, the Sesame Street YouTube channel had 978,247,378 views, but 978,247,378 million views isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion views. That's the goal Sesame Street set for itself, and they've released a new video featuring Telly, who is the best, to help spread the word that when they hit one billion views they'll release a "Top Secret" video.

    Honey Boo Boo Has a Comic Book, and Now There’s Variant Covers

    We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.

    Adorable: The Pope Thinks He’s Beating Justin Bieber at Twitter

    In a sign that maybe the Vatican doesn't really understand this newfangled Twitter thing, they've announced that the Pope is beating Justin Bieber in the only category that counts: Retweets. If you're wondering how that statement can be true, don't bother, because it isn't. Don't worry, Pope, we're sure you're still beating Bieber in most giant hats. Probably.

    Hilariously Creepy Girl Enters Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend Contest, is Awesome

    Justin Bieber is holding a contest wherein fans make their own video version of his song "Boyfriend," and the winners' entries will be featured in Bieber's upcoming NBC special. The songs submitted are pretty much what you'd expect -- girls taking the serious route, trying in earnest to win. There's one response, though, that's far and away the greatest thing that has happened on the Internet in a while. Contest winners will be announced June 21, and there's almost no way the above entry will win, but it won the Internet, so everything's alright. Check out some of our favorite moments from the video below.

    Anonymous Allegedly Threatens Sony, Justin Bieber, Others Over SOPA Support

    An Anonymous-branded message threatening Sony and a handful of celebrities has surfaced and calls for attacks on the target parties as retaliation for their collective support of SOPA. The message announces that Anonymous will "destroy [Sony's] network," and has "declared that [their] fury will be brought upon...Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift," for their grievous crime. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Releasing a video announcing an Anonymous attack doesn't necessarily make said Anonymous attack real, but this one seems to be gaining some traction.

    Prankster Uses Bogus DMCA Notices to Take Down Bieber’s YouTube Channel

    Just like I predicted on several occasions, YouTube's over-the-top, self-defensive copyright policy has been purposefully abused on a large scale in order to trick YouTube into haphazardly removing videos it had no business being worried about. A currently unknown person registered with the username iLCreation, hopped on YouTube and claimed copyright to each and every Justin Beiber music video. What do you think YouTube did? Took the copyright notifications of an exceedingly famous artist's every video 100% seriously and shut down Beiber's entire Vevo channel without asking for any sort of proof of the claims. As if that weren't enough, a similar attack affected Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. It makes sense that YouTube enacts their policy this way in order to protect themselves, but this really lays bare how ridiculously extreme that policy is. If the process hadn't been automated and they had given even one second's thought to the situation, you'd think they might come to the conclusion that "Hey, about 5 pop superstars are participating in copyright infringement against one dude and he just noticed and thought to do something about it now, all at once? Hey, wait a minute...." Except that YouTube's all-complaints-are-true, automated copyright policy kept them from arriving at that second sentence.

    Justin Bieber x Slipknot. ‘Nuff Said.

    While I will confess that I am neither an aficionado of Justin Bieber nor of Slipknot, this is the most wizardly mash-up I have heard in quite a while. Artist Isosine, a.k.a. Steven Nguyen, explains the magic:

    [The songs were mixed in] Ableton Live. The vocal recording is from Rock Band when you don't play anything, it gets most of the other tracks out of the way, but there are still some residual stuff like drums. ... The screams were left unaffected since I didn't hear any specific pitch to them. Plus tuning the screams made them sound wonky. However, the chorus is +5 steps up. It has doubled effect because there are actually three vocal tracks playing during the chorus. +5 (the one you hear the most), -7 (give it some beef and thicken the track), -7 (another one with a slightly different formant to make sound a little more natural).

    Viral Star Rebecca Black on Good Morning America

    It's #Friday, and you know what that means: Viral music video star Rebecca Black, whose 16 million-YouTube-hits-and-counting "Friday" has our staff far more obsessed than any group of twentysomethings should ever healthily be with a tween pop song, appeared on Good Morning America to discuss her unexpected celebrity. She seems like a nice, normal girl! And she doesn't sound like an Auto-Tuned Gorgon when they ask her to sing a few bars of the National Anthem. Still, the GMA interview is all kinds of strange, what with the interviewer reading her nasty Internet comments about her music and the anchors sagely observing that "Friday" is really bad, but "not the worst song ever." Also, 4chan is going to rage about Black's on-air entreaty to Justin Bieber to perform a duet with her. (Hey, she is a 13-year-old girl, after all.) Previously: Black's first interview since "Friday"-mania began.

    Obnoxious Bieber Fans Deface Esperanza Spalding’s Wikipedia Page

    In retaliation over Esperanza Spalding's win for best new artist over Justin Bieber in last night's Grammy awards someone, presumably a Justin Bieber fan, defaced Spalding's Wikipedia page. The user added "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?" The user also added "Quesadilla" to Spalding's name on the page. Spalding, who is of mixed Spanish and African-American ancestry, is an accomplished musician and singer, notable for her use of a stand-up bass which she plays while singing. Her style leans on the jazzier end of the musical spectrum, though she has voiced a desire to simply be recognized as a musician of popular music. This particular display of rivalry from supposed Bieber fans is especially disheartening since both Bieber and Spalding share unique stories, rising from obscurity and building their reputations as successful performers. Since the person who defaced Spalding's page could not answer his or her own question by simply scrolling down the page, here are some highlights from Wikipedia that will hopefully shed some light on who she is, anyway.
