Justin Bieber fooled us all. The supposed "theft" of personal footage from Justin's computer and camera last week never happened. It was all just a hoax perpetrated by Justin himself. Because the supposed thief delivered on his promise to post something big on Friday and it turned out to be Justin's new video, "Beauty and the Beat", featuring Nicki Minaj. It was smart the way they did it. The "suspect" just Tweeted a YouTube link from his account, without explaining what it was. So obviously, a ton of people clicked on it, thinking they might see something scandalous.

Gunplay turned himself in to the authorities because he had an open arrest warrant for armed robbery. But now there are more details. We now have surveillance footage of Gunplay pulling a gun on his accountant. According to the timestamp on the video, this happened on April 13th, two days before Tax Day. In the video the accountant shows Gunplay some papers and Gunplay flips out, whipping out his piece, and going after the guy. Some other guy in the room gets in-between them, but Gunplay's heated argument with the accountant continues for a solid minute. Then everyone leaves the room. It's unclear what happened after that. TMZ reports that Gunplay stole a gold chain and a cell phone at some point that explains the "robbery" charge, but we don't know if those belonged to the accountant, or someone else.
NBC has canceled Dane Cooks new sitcom "Next Caller" before airing a single episode. This was the show where Dane was playing "a brash alpha male radio DJ, who was disheveled, unshaven, hung-over," and unhappy with his female co-host. Sounds familiar, right Nicodemus? Four episodes were filmed, and it was supposed to premiere this winter. Dane joked about it on Twitter saying, "Loved my cast and crew (not sure of their names, I didn't have time to learn them) but will never forget my 37 hours working on Next Brawler."
