The only thing Bieber's entourage is missing: a world historian.
Justin Bieber has returned to the U.S. after offending a ton of fans in China and South Korea last week. Only (other) problem: He’s been detained by customs officials at Los Angeles International.
Witnesses tell E! News that officials questioned the 20-year-old Canadian for at least two hours while his entourage stood around twiddling their thumbs. Bieber was also detained while traveling from Canada to New Jersey for the Super Bowl in February. In that incident, officials searched his private jet for drugs but didn’t find anything. TMZ reported at the time that sources said he could expect the same treatment every time he tries to enter the country.
As for offending all those people in Asia? The Biebs posted a photo of himself in Tokyo last week where he visited the Yasukuni Shrine. The shrine honors fallen Japanese that include 14 convicted war criminals from World War II.
People in China and South Korea were pretty peeved, so the singer issued the obligatory apology. …Full Story

From left, Aubrey Peeples, Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau and Hayley Kiyoko.
We sure hope Aubrey Peeples knows how to act outrageous — truly, truly, truly outrageous — because the Nashville star just landed every girl of the ’80s dream role: Jerrica Benton a.k.a Jem! The 20-year-old up and comer will play the pink-haired lead in Jon M. Chu’s live action adaptation of Jem and the Holograms, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
But wait, there’s more. The Holograms have also been cast. Stefanie Scott of Disney’s A.N.T. Farm will play Jem’s sister Kimber, Aurora Perrineau of Pretty Little Liars will play Shana and Hayley Kiyoko of The Fosters will play Aja.
And that leaves no room for us, which makes us a little sad. But Jem!
The film — based on the 1980s Hasbro toy line that was also the most ultimate of all glam rock cartoons — has already begun shooting. The movie is being made “for a whole new generation with themes of being true to who you are in a multitasking, hyperlinked social media age.”Full Story
People just can't "Let It Go."
Frozen just made its way into the No. 6 spot on the list of highest-grossing movies of all time, according to Digital Spy.
The highest-grossing animated film in history just passed Transformers: Dark of the Moon with an international total of $1.129 billion.
Yes, people are still seeing this movie.
Oh, and the soundtrack that features the Oscar-winning song Let It Go that we can’t ever, ever, ever get out of our heads mainly because mini Juice* just won’t stop belting it or making us listen to it in the car on repeat? It’s spent ten weeks atop of the Billboard 200 chart.Full Story
How much you wanna bet this is his "heck no" face?
Master P’s estranged wife Sonya Miller is asking for $67,647,800 in cash and belongings, according to TMZ.
Miller estimates the total value of the couple’s assets to be nearly $174 million. That includes Master P's 31 properties, 13 cars, 45 companies and the like.
Miller wants 40% — eight of the properties that are spread across California, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee and Georgia; one of their three large chandeliers that are valued around $300,000 each (barf); $54 million of the $136 million value of Master P’s businesses, including No Limits Records; $10 million of her husband’s Make 'Em Say Ughh! energy drink company; her $28,000 wedding dress (seems fair); and one car, the Escalade, keeping her hands off his Bentley, Porsche, Jag, other Escalade, et al.
This would leave the rapper with a mere $111,095,500.
As for their son Romeo, he says she doesn’t deserve any of it until she can start being a better mom. Ouch.Full Story

These two are so private, you have to shell out cold, hard cash for the one photo of them together.
Surprise! Jodie Foster is a married woman. The Oscar winner and her girlfriend, photographer/actress Alexandra Hedison, tied the knot in a quiet ceremony over the weekend, E! Online reports.
The couple had been dating for almost a year, and beyond that we have zero details because the Silence of the Lambs star is notoriously super-duper private.
At the 2013 Golden Globes, Foster accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award and refused to give a “big coming out speech” (which is so en vogue), saying, “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age. If you had been a public figure from the time that you were a toddler, if you had to fight for a life that felt real and honest and normal against all odds, then maybe then you too might value privacy above all else.”
In that speech the Elysium actress thanked her ex-partner of 20 years, Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons, Charles and Kit. Oh, and fun fact: Hedison, who played Dylan Moreland on The L Word, dated Ellen DeGeneres for a few years back in the early 2000s.Full Story
Lupita “We Heart Her So Much” Nyong’o has been named People magazine’s most beautiful person of 2014.
What a year it’s been for the 12 Years a Slave star, who won an Oscar for best supporting actress, signed a deal with Lancôme to become its first black representative and made our jaws drop every time she stepped foot on a red carpet.
The fashionista made headlines in February for giving a moving speech as she accepted the best breakthrough performance award at the seventh annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.
“I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful,” she said. “I put on the TV and only saw pale skin. I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin.”
About being selected for this year’s cover, the Mexican-born Kenyan said: “It was exciting and just a major, major compliment. I was happy for all the girls who would see me on it and feel a little more seen.”
See why we heart her so much?Full Story
Chris Brown left jail in L.A. to sit in jail in D.C. for a while, then flew back to L.A. to sit in jail until he can go back to jail in D.C. for his new trial date.
Chris Brown’s Washington, D.C., assault trial has been put on hold for months, and the judge in the
Rihanna beating case, who had Brown jailed after he was kicked out of rehab last month, just denied the singer's latest bid for freedom.
In the D.C. case, a man named Parker Adams is accusing Brown and his bodyguard of physically attacking him outside the W Hotel in October. The bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was found guilty earlier this week for his involvement in the incident.
The singer’s trial was supposed to begin Wednesday, but because Hollosy is no longer willing to testify on Brown’s behalf, it’s been delayed, according to Digital Spy. Hollosy was going to testify that he, not Brown, hit Parker, but only in exchange for immunity. Hollosy also doesn’t want to intervene in Brown’s case until his appeal has worked its way through the courts. …Full Story

Lindsay's rep says she's not off the wagon.
Lilo rep slams reports of drinking and drugs:
Lindsay Lohan’s people are saying that the Kode magazine article detailing the troubled actress’s vodka habit is fabricated. A rep for the Mean Girls star who confessed on the Sunday finale of her OWN docu-series that she had a miscarriage says the Kode writer’s claim that Lohan was drinking vodka on the rocks during their interview is false.
“Lindsay never spoke to any journalist at Kode. The interview was completed via email,” Lohan’s rep told E! News on Monday. “We have no comprehension on why a journalist would fabricate this content and distribute it in such an irresponsible way.”
Kode sees things a bit differently, naturally. The mag’s editor-in-chief, Allan Troy Watson, says the interview went down as reported.
“I have sworn testimonies that it took place that back up everything,” he says.
Executive editor Jacob Simon adds, “Yes, the interview took place and everything stated in the article is fact and came directly from Lohan herself. And we have photos chronicling the writer and Lindsay’s numerous times together.”
Lilo’s rep says the whole interview was conducted via written Q&A.

Arki probably had it comin', right Beatrix?
Maybe the third time will be the charm — if it ever happens.
Uma Thurman and fiance Arpad “Arki” Busson have decided to split for a second time, according to Us Weekly. The Pulp Fiction actress was seen at a recent event without her engagement ring, so the report must be legit.
“It’s true,” a source tells Us Weekly. And there you have it.
The Kill Bill star and her millionaire investor beau were scheduled to attend the Room to Grow gala in New York City on April 8, but only Uma showed up, and she wasn’t wearing her bling.
The couple had been on again-off again since 2007, breaking off their first engagement in 2009. Uma returned her 8-carat sparkler back then. The pair mended the relationship in 2011. A year later they had a daughter together and for some reason decided to name her Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-BussonFull Story
Drew was glowing at CinemaCon last month.
Drumroll… We’re about to find out if Drew Barrymore was able top herself in choosing the most adorable baby name on Earth, that being Olive, the name she chose for her 19-month-old daughter.
Yes, the 39-year-old actress and her husband, art advisor Will Kopelman, 36, welcomed their second little pink bundle on Tuesday, People reports.
“Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple said in a statement. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”
Okay, so Frankie doesn’t quite top Olive, but it’s still cute to the point that we sort of can’t get over it. And hey, it’s not Bear or anything. (We’re looking at you, Kate Winslet.)
Barrymore happily shared the news that she was expecting back in November after trying unsuccessfully to keep her first pregnancy a secret.
“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” she said at the time. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”
And the mother of two is pretty pumped to invite another girl into the mix. …Full Story
Lindsay watches Lana Del Ray at Coachella, where word is Lilo was less than sober.
Remember when everyone was all, “Lindsay Lohan is super irresponsible because she’s nothing but a no-show who holds up production of her Oprah-backed docu-series?” Well, it turns out we might all be huge jerks.
When asked to reflect on her time filming the OWN reality show Lindsay, the troubled actress revealed she took two weeks off because she had a miscarriage.
“No one knows this, and we can finish (the interview) after this: I had a miscarriage for the two weeks that I took off,” the 27-year-old said while fighting back tears during the final moments of the show’s two-hour finale on Sunday.
“It’s a very long story,” she said after a long pause. “But that’s why on the show when it says, 'She doesn’t want to come down, she doesn’t want to come down,’ I couldn’t move. I was sick. And mentally that messes with you.”
The break in filming led to frustration for the crew and a visit from a concerned Winfrey. The Mean Girls star didn’t say who the father was, according to Us Weekly. …Full Story

Demi, right, still doesn’t seem to be over ex-husband Ashton.
Oh, man. The yogic spiritual center of India better stock up on ice cream, tissues and beautiful young men because Demi Moore is coming to town, fingers in ears, to avoid any and all news about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’s upcoming nuptials.
Ashton’s cougary ex-wife obviously isn’t over him because she’s planning a yoga retreat in Rishikesh, India, that will intentionally coincide with the big day, Radar Online reports.
“Demi is tapped into Ashton and Mila’s wedding planning and she’s telling friends that she’s going to get out of town during the time frame of when the wedding and pre and post-wedding festivities will go down,” a source told Radar.
“Demi knows she’ll have to endure hearing about the affair — which Ashton is telling mutual friends will be huge and full of A-list Hollywood and tech friends — and seeing pictures. But the wound is still fresh from their divorce and Demi doesn’t want anything to trigger a relapse.”
It’s thought that Demi’s getting the inside dish from her daughter Rumer Willis, who’s still all buddy-buddy with Ashton. …Full Story

The romance is “very new and recent,” a source tells the New York Post’s Page Six, who first reported the news.
