Did Justin Bieber's Crew Beat a Guy Up?
Members of JUSTIN BIEBER'S crew are being investigated for allegedly beating a guy up outside the South Pointe nightclub in New York over the weekend.
Sources say Justin's bodyguards were already harassing people inside the club . . . shining flashlights on them when they tried to take Justin's picture and being, quote, "heavy-handed" with people who tried to get close.
But when a woman tried to talk to Justin and was denied, a male friend of hers confronted him. At that point a witness says Justin, quote, "ripped his shirt off and went nuts. He was screaming."
So Justin's people took Justin out to his SUV. That's when something happened in the parking lot.
It's not clear exactly what went down, but a man later filed a police report claiming he was assaulted. Justin even came out of the sunroof of the SUV and walked down the hood onto the asphalt during the chaos.
But it sounds like he didn't get involved, because he's NOT being investigated for the alleged attack.

Miley Cyrus Says She's Not a "Ratchet White Girl"
MILEY CYRUS would like you to know that you have the wrong impression of her.
She tells "Notion" magazine, quote, "People have this misconception of me that I'm just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I'm just this ratchet white girl, and I'm not. I work really, really hard, I'm just in a different environment."
(According to the Urban Dictionary, "ratchet" describes a woman who is, quote, "a diva, mostly from urban cities and ghettos, that has reason to believe she is every man's eye candy. Unfortunately, she's wrong.")
Miley adds, quote, "I'm young and living and in L.A., which is everyone's dream, you know. I'm living it to the fullest."

People Are Raging That "Shark Week" Started with a Fake Documentary About an Extinct Shark
The Discovery Channel launched "Shark Week" on Sunday night with a FAKE documentary called "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives", about a huge, 70-foot prehistoric shark . . . that suddenly showed up this past April.
Some scientists believe the Megalodon DID exist at one point, but that it's been extinct for one- to two MILLION years. Obviously, the documentary about it being spotted earlier this year was just as fake as Animal Planet's staged mermaid "documentaries."
The Discovery Channel's Facebook page was LIT UP yesterday with people ANGRILY complaining about "Megalodon", and their decision to waste everyone's time with an elaborate HOAX.
Nonetheless, Discovery appears to have got the last laugh. The network hasn't directly responded to all the hate, but they did announce that the special was the highest-rated telecast in the 26-year history of "Shark Week."
An estimated 4.8 million viewers tuned in . . . and 2.1 million viewers stuck around for the bizarre post-special talk show, "Shark After Dark".
