According to Bieber’s rep:
“Justin and his team are being told they can’t leave the hotel and can’t be seen on any balconies or they will be arrested for inciting a riot,” adding, “They are complying with police demands…”

Charlie Sheen is an idiot. First he does enough coke to kill a village, then he tarnishes his own image by creating a home haven of porn stars, then he has the gull to actually sue CBS, Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for $100 million, claiming wrongful termination after he had to abandon the show to undergo rehab treatments.
On March 7 Warner Bros. issued a statement about Sheen’s firing:
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately.”
To which Sheen responded with:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshis[expletive] again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.
In his lawsuit Sheen is stating that since he wasn’t fired through all his other transgressions in the past, the studio had no reason to fire him this time around.

Charlie Sheen has went off the deep end and celebrity therapist Dr. Drew wants the actor to be committed.
The head of Celebrity Rehab stopped by the Joy Behar Show on Wednesday and talked about Sheen’s public outbreaks and firing from Two and a Half Men.
According to Dr Drew:
“It’s funny to me that people somehow believe that you have to know a patient intimately to understand they have a medical condition.”
“It’s really, for me, no different than looking at a rash…It’s somebody who uncharacteristically has a grandiose belief that they have special powers, there’s a torrent of speech, distractablituty, flight of ideas, seemingly endless energy, hyper sexuality…those are all a criteria for a condition called hypomania. It simply defines what hypomania is.”

While the Shrek series of movies may be done, that doesn’t mean we were never going to see characters from the popular series again and now we have a first look at Puss in Boots, a spinoff from last years blockbuster Shrek Ever After movie.
MSN grabbed a first look at the movie which features the feline voiced by Antonio Banderas. In true Puss In Boots fashion he can be seen wowing the ladies with his swordplay, riding a horse standing up and using stunning moves to show off his prowess.
Unfortunately this first look trailer doesn’t really tell us a whole bunch about the storyline for the upcoming movie. What we do know is that Humpty Dumpty (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) teams up with Puss In Boots to steal the goose that lays the golden eggs.
Also featured in the movie is Salma Hayek who voices Kitty Softpaws.
Here’s the first look trailer:
Puss In Boots hits theaters later this year.

Charlie Sheen hasn’t been looking so great lately, from his drug induced nights to his crazy talk during interviews and now via his Ustream podcast, many people believe he could end up in the city morgue just as fast as he was fired from Two and a Half Men and it’s for that reason that many news agencies have already written the obituaries they will post the moment Sheen kicks the bucket.
From Reuters to The Associated Press many top news agencies are rumored to have In Memoriam articles about Sheen’s life sitting on the back burner, waiting for immediate publication.
It should be noted that this isn’t a new practice, when Britney Spears went insane for a while back in 2008, The Associate Press had her In Memoriam and obituaries written and ready to go. While the 1990′s saw various agencies preparing an endless cycle of Elizabeth Taylor In Memoriam articles.
According to a CBS insider:
“No one is wishing the worst but as a news organization for us not to be prepared for one of the biggest stories in a long time would be unprofessional.”
Heck even the team at Warner Bros. tried to reach out to Charlie Sheen’s legal team to get him the help he needs:
“..Focus your energies on what no one so far has been able to do: get your client the sustained, rigorous and effective treatment he so urgently needs,” the WB wrote in its plea. “It is clear that [Sheen] has no intention of agreeing to the intensive evaluation and treatment that his condition requires. It is also clear he does not believe he has a problem and that he will continue to conduct himself in a destructive manner.”
