Justin Bieber has issued an apology for the second racist video and it's pretty much the same as his first one. Except, in this one he took a page out of Jonah Hill's book with a "use me as an example of what not to do" bit. He says, "Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn't understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did." By the way, the "New York Post" claims there's at least "15 to 20 more minutes" of Justin being racist out there. Supposedly, this other footage includes Justin joking about, "black people liking watermelon" and him asking a friend whether "his parents are as black as Akon."
T-Pain is grateful for his friendships with Chris Brown and Ne-Yo. They stuck by him as he struggled with depression. He fell into a deep, booze-fuelled downward spiral in 2010. He has since managed to get sober and turn his life around.
The bouncer at a Nashville club called Red Door wouldn't let Darius Rucker in on Monday because he had no I.D. Instead of pitching a fit like some stars might have, Darius said he understood and left. Okay, that's only half of the story. Here's the best part. Earlier that night he'd hosted his 5th Annual Darius and Friends Concert to benefit St. Jude's Research Hospital. It was at a different location and when it wrapped they chose Red Door for the after-party. It's not clear if it was the "official" after-party, but still, you'd have to think word got back to the door dude that this was going down. And Darius's bodyguards filled the guy in, but he was under strict orders not to let anyone in who didn't have an I.D.
