Justin Bieber Being Shot On CSI: An Unlikely, Disturbing Viral Sensation

Published

on

In what is a fairly disturbing trend, a very specific moment of Justin Bieber’s CSI appearance has gotten more than NINE MILLION VIEWS: the scene where he’s shot to death.

In this scene, the completion of a story arc that began with his first appearance back in September, Bieber reprised his role as foster teen and bomb expert (um, okay…) Jason McCann for the season’s fifteenth episode: ‘Targets Of Obsessions.’  After refusing to surrender and shooting another police officer, character Nick Stokes, (played by George Eads) opens fire, and a gunshot ridden, bloodied Bieber slowly, dramatically tumbles to the ground.

A clip of the climactic thirty seconds was uploaded on February 17th, and just four days later has received more than NINE million hits. Do the math: two and a quarter million people a day wanted to watch a clip of Justin Bieber being violently shot.

Coincidentally, Britney Spears’ new video for “Hold It Against Me” was released and uploaded on her official YouTube page the same day, and has received 9.5 million views at post-time… both impressive numbers. And yet, the Spears’ video is clear in it’s intent to be viewed as entertainment … the Bieber  video is a very specific clip of the teen being shot dead – even if it’s in the fictional sense. The motivation for watching it is less clear.

Is the phenomenon slightly disturbing, or even surprising? Yes and no. On one hand, Bieber’s more emphatic fans want to see anything and everything Bieber, and that undoubtedly contributes to viewership of a Justin Bieber video clip – no matter what’s actually in the video. (Savvy YouTube uploaders often tag their videos with misleading keywords like Bieber, Gaga, and more just to increase their viewership… look no further than the angry comments section at the bottom of one of these pages to see how many people have been misled.) But a clip of this nature, clearly titled “Justin Bieber Shot and Killed” is hardly misleading.

As popular as it is to be a Justin Bieber fan, it’s also extremely popular to be ‘anti-Bieber’.  For some, it’s a badge of honor or sorts – an anti-establishment statement that they’re not a ‘tool’ of the entertainment juggernaut. For every fan, there is another person who is ‘doesn’t get it’ or simply has a tendency to resist the popular vote. But this is a pretty disturbing viral sensation.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
