SOMETIMES THAT Bieber Fever makes you crazy.
Authorities have accused a Lee Moir, of Toronto, of impersonating Justin Bieber. Although a 34-year-old man with facial hair pretending to be the Beebs should in itself be a crime, Moir was arrested for playing Bieber, and for allegedly threatening and sexually abusing a 12-year-old New Jersey girl on a video-chat site.
Beeb’s hit song is super-creepy when a grown-up sings it to a pre-teen:
If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go
I can take you places you ain’t never been before
Baby, take a chance or you’ll never ever know
I got money in my hands that I’d really like you to blow
Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says Moir posed as the pop star on Facebook. Authorities allege he threatened to harm the girl’s family to force her to perform sex acts online. He was arrested after an undercover Canadian officer posed as a 14-year-old girl online and Moir engaged “her” in sexual conversations and requested a meeting.
He’s charged in Canada with luring, manufacturing child pornography and extortion.
Just when you think politics can’t get any more ridiculous, TMZ.com reports that there’s a move afoot in Glendale, Calif., to make Kim Kardashian mayor.
Glendale has a large Armenian population, and some of the most prominent Armenians are backing Kim.
One problem — aside from the obvious one: The Glendale mayor comes from City Council, so Kim must first run for Council.
“I decided I’m going to run for the mayor of Glendale,” Kim recently told Khloe on an episode of “Khloe & Lamar” (a/k/a the “Meet the Press” of E!) Want to tighten the gender gap, Mitt? Announce your veep nominee to Ryan Seacrest.
“So you have to, you know, have full residency of Glendale,” Kim added, probably meaning “in” Glendale. “So, for real, Noel’s going to head my campaign. But it’s going to be like five years for Glendale. So I have to buy a house there.”
Gosh, those “Keeping up with the Kardashians” plotlines (not to mention the “SNL” Kardashian sketches) are endless.
Gossipy author Kitty Kelley’s next book will provide the text to Capturing Camelot, a collection of photographs by her friend Stanley Tretick, who died in 1999 and who covered the White House for Look magazine while John F. Kennedy was in office.
Capturing Camelot is due out in November.
A judge has refused to dismiss Nicollette Sheridan’s lawsuit over her demise on “Desperate Housewives.”
City News Service says Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White urged the parties Wednesday to continue settlement talks but set a new trial for Sept. 10.
A jury deadlocked, 8-4, in favor of Sheridan last month.
She sued ABC/Disney and series creator Marc Cherry for $6 million for wrongful termination.
Oh, those rich celebrities.
The Daily Mail says a new book on Simon Cowell will report that the notorious singing judge stocks his bathrooms with black toilet paper costing $16 per roll.
How do you add a punchline to something like that? n
