Did Justin Bieber Use a Wheelchair at Disneyland to Cut Lines?
JUSTIN BIEBER was spotted in a WHEELCHAIR at Disneyland over the weekend, which caused OUTRAGE on the Internet among people who deduced that he was only using it to cut the long ride lines.
But Justin's people say he's nursing a knee injury . . . and they also pointed out that Disney already escorts him onto rides to avoid large crowds, so he doesn't even need a wheelchair to cut ahead.
Meanwhile, Justin posted 15 second clips of 11 new songs on Instagram yesterday. He didn't give any information about the songs, other than to note that one of them is called "Cold Waters".
But he did Tweet this: "Great night in the studio."
Britney Spears is Introducing a Line of Lingerie
BRITNEY SPEARS is releasing a line of LINGERIE, called The Intimate Britney Spears. Ten years ago, this probably would have been huge news. We'll have to wait and see if Britney still has a big enough draw to make this venture a success. I'm still a fan but I haven't committed to buying any lingerie...yet.
You can see a Photoshopped picture of Britney wearing one of "her" creations on the Intimate Britney Spears Facebook page.

Martin just quit the show. In an open letter, he said, quote, "It's embarrassing but the reason is that they're paying a very low wage.
"The terms they're offering are so poor, and this with the immense success of Thomas, that the only right thing for me to do is walk away . . . I have felt exploited for a while now. I believe it's important to move on from a situation if you are not valued."
He somewhat dramatically added, quote, "The people who are going to suffer is going to be the kids."

Is Ben Affleck Struggling With His Batman Suit?
The Daily Star claims BEN AFFLECK is having trouble adapting to his Batman suit.
A source tells the paper: "The suit is extremely restrictive. Ben finds it hard to perform basic tasks and struggles to look natural. He's also been complaining of problems with breathing, given how tight the suit is.
The source also says Ben is "trying to avoid going to the toilet because it's such an ordeal. The entire production has to stop and begin the tedious process of peeling the suit on and off. It's not an ideal situation."

Are JAY Z and BEYONCÉ gearing up to . . . split apart? The rumors are building that they'll divorce after their On the Run tour ends later this summer.
One website laid the whole thing out like this . . . quote, "This high-profile marriage is just a business arrangement . . . [and it] will wind down after their current project is finished.
"They are splitting up everything (properties, money, children) right now, but will be keeping up appearances until the announcement. They are separating this year, with the divorce to follow in about six months. (For the record, Jay and Beyoncé don't have "children". They have one child: 2-year-old Blue Ivy.)
"It will be very clean and very fast. In fact, the parties involved are describing the timeline as "Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes fast.
Meanwhile, Jay and Beyoncé looked like a happy family Sunday in New Orleans, when they went to dinner with her mom and her sister, elevator antagonist Solange. They have not commented on these rumors.

Kanye West Says He's a Blowfish and Kim Kardashian is a Dinosaur
In a "GQ" interview, KANYE WEST referred to KIM KARDASHIAN as a "dinosaur" and a "fighter jet", because she's really cool and rare, or something like that. He also called himself a "blowfish" instead of a "shark", because he's not a predator, he just wants to defend himself and others.
The "dinosaur" comment was actually a reference to the Will Ferrell movie "Step Brothers". He said, quote, "Like they said in 'Step Brothers': Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur."
Elsewhere in the interview, Kanye cleared up some rumors concerning his wedding. For instance, he didn't actually saw through a bar he didn't like. But he did make some last-minute changes because he didn't like the way it looked.
He also didn't deny that he gave a 45-minute speech during the reception. And he kind of dodged the issue of why JAY Z and BEYONCÉ skipped the ceremony.
He said, quote, "It doesn't even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that's all that matters to me."
Ariana Grande Can't Sleep...Because of Frog Relations

Is "The Simpsons" Killing Off Krusty the Clown?
"The Simpsons" is killing off a "major character" on the 26th season premiere on September 28th, and it's now sounding like it may be Krusty the Clown.
Executive producer Al Jean started the rumors when he announced the episode would be titled "A Clown in the Dumps." He added, quote, "It turned out bigger than we thought it was going to be. [But] it's not going to be this bloodbath where they all get murdered."
After word began spreading, he said, quote, "I didn't say I was killing Krusty . . . I didn't say I wasn't."
By the way, the "Simpsons" / "Family Guy" crossover that will occur during the September 28th season premiere of "Family Guy" will also include an appearance by Bob from "Bob's Burgers".
Adam Levine And Behati Prinsloo Were Married . . . By Jonah Hill

Adam and Jonah are longtime friends, and a source says, quote, "Jonah was hysterical. He was telling so many jokes, but then in the middle would be so sweet and sincere."
Guests included Robert Downey Jr., Jason Segel and Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton . . . plus Maroon 5 members James Valentine and Jesse Carmichael. Some of the bridesmaids were Victoria's Secret models.
The reception featured several musical performances, including one by STEVIE NICKS, who's mentoring Adam's team on the next season of "The Voice".
They're honeymooning in South Africa.
Casey Kasem's Kids Don't Know Where His Body Is
A month after CASEY KASEM'S death, the battle between his widow JEAN and his kids from his first marriage rages on.
The kids now say Jean removed Casey's body from a Washington state funeral home, and they don't know where it is. If Jean did remove the body, she did it in defiance of the law.
Earlier in the week Casey's kids went to court to request an autopsy. The judge ordered Jean to keep the body in cold storage at the funeral home until that request could be ruled on.
"Weird Al" Yankovic Is in Line to Score His First #1 Album
"WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC released his new album, "Mandatory Fun" last Tuesday . . . and early estimates say it's on track to sell more than 80,000 copies, which should be enough to make it his first-ever #1 album.
Obviously, these are strange times for music sales . . . but if this happens, he earned it, because 80,000 copies in one week would be Weird Al's best individual sales week since at least 1991, when Nielsen began tracking music sales.
As of Friday, he was beating out JASON MRAZ'S new album, "Yes", by around 5,000 copies. If Jason pulls ahead, it would also be his first #1 album.
The sales week ended yesterday, but the final numbers won't be released until Wednesday.
Panic! At the Disco Donated $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for Every Member of the Westboro Baptist Church Who Picketed Their Show
This is one of the best reactions to the Westboro Baptist Church's hateful protests:
The church recently announced they were going to picket a PANIC! AT THE DISCO show in Missouri . . . so the band posted a Facebook message saying that they'd donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for every Westboro protester who actually showed up.
Well, the show went down last night . . . and 13 protesters showed up.
Late last night, the band posted this update: Quote, "Thank you Westboro Baptist Church for the update on the total amount you donated to Human Rights Campaign today. [But] $20 [times] 13 = Weak." That's just $260.
It went on, quote, "We're going to make it an even $1,000. We'll also be donating 5% of our total merch sales from this show to HRC."

As for the other movies opening this weekend, "Planes: Fire & Rescue" made $18 million at #3 . . . and the JASON SEGEL-CAMERON DIAZ comedy "Sex Tape" was kind of a letdown, bringing in just $15 million in 4th place.

Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer Might Get Married and Adopt a Kid on "Two and a Half Men"
The 12th and final season of "Two and a Half Men" premieres in October. Although, the "half man" thing doesn't really apply anymore, because ANGUS T. JONES is gone. But maybe they'll be picking up a NEW half.
Yesterday, the chairman of CBS told reporters that ASHTON KUTCHER and JON CRYER might get MARRIED this season, so they can adopt a kid.
In the premiere, Ashton's character, Walden, has a health scare that makes him realize he wants kids. And when he can't adopt one on his own, he proposes to Alan so they can adopt a kid as a fake gay couple. We don't know if Alan says yes though.
Tim McGraw Swatted A Female Fan Who Ripped His Jeans
TIM MCGRAW swatted a woman in the head who ripped his jeans while he was performing Sunday in Atlanta. There's also the possibility that she smacked his junk.
Tim was performing "Truck Yeah" and interacting with fans when a woman suddenly swatted the area close to his junk. She may have landed one because he seems to start yelling at her, although you can't hear what he says.
He quickly turns away but she GRABS the preexisting hole in his jeans and rips them even more. That's when he reacts. He brushes her hand back and then smacks the top of her head. You can see her hair fly.
TMZ originally claimed that he'd slapped her face, but in the video, it appears his hand only connects with her hair.
New Movies This Weekend
1. "Sex Tape" (R)
Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz make a sex tape to recapture some of the passion in their marriage. But before they can delete the video, it syncs to the cloud and downloads onto the iPads they're giving as gifts to their friends and family.
Ellie Kemper and Rob Corddry are friends who've seen the video and agree to help them get the iPads back, including one that went to Cameron's boss Rob Lowe.
2. "Planes: Fire & Rescue" (PG)
Dane Cook returns as Dusty, the world racing champion. In this one he decides to become an aerial firefighter and train with a team led by Ed Harris. "Modern Family's" Julie Bowen is also in it as an obsessive fan and team member named Lil' Dipper.
3. "The Purge: Anarchy" (R)
A sequel to "The Purge", the sci-fi horror movie from last year with Ethan Hawke, about a future America where crime is legal for one night a year.
This time, Frank Grillo plays a guy who goes during the Purge to find the guy who killed his son on the last purge. But his quest for revenge gets sidetracked when he rescues a mother and daughter from a death squad.
He also gets stuck with Zach Gilford from "Friday Night Lights" and Kiele Sanchez from "Lost", when their car runs out of gas as the purge begins. You might recognize Grillo as one of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".
Charlie Sheen Went on a Drunk Taco Bell Run . . . and Started Talking to Fans in the Drive-Thru Lane
It's been a while since CHARLIE SHEEN has done anything crazy. And that streak is now OVER.
Last week, he went on a drunken Taco Bell run in the middle of the night . . . apparently somewhere in L.A. . . . got out of his car, and started talking to a couple in the DRIVE-THRU lane.
They got video of it, and he was OBVIOUSLY intoxicated. Then he confirmed it by telling them, quote, "Sorry I'm so [effing] HAMMERED."
He also had his shirt wide open, and showed off some of his tattoos when the driver asked about them. Then he commented that the driver was "hilarious" . . . even though he hadn't said anything funny.
Charlie's rep later noted that he was NOT driving that night though. He had a chauffeur.
Manuel Noriega Is Suing the Makers of "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" for Trashing His Pristine Reputation?
MANUEL NORIEGA . . . the former military dictator of Panama . . . has sued Activision, for featuring him in their game, "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2". In the game's '80s flashbacks, Noriega reluctantly helps the Americans capture the game's villain . . . but then he betrays and murders his own men to help the bad guy escape.
He says they used his image and likeness without permission, and trashed his otherwise PRISTINE REPUTATION . . . by portraying him as a, quote, "kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state."
Noriega is currently incarcerated in Panama, and has done long sentences in the U.S. and France. He's been convicted of drug trafficking, racketeering, money laundering, murder, and was basically considered an enemy of the state. But, hey, he's never actually faced any kidnapping charges.
Some Guy Is Trying to Crowd-Fund a "Breaking Bad" Spin-Off, Starring Val Kilmer and Slash?
Some guy named Larry Shepherd is trying to raise money on Kickstarter to fund a "Breaking Bad" SPIN-OFF series . . . starring VAL KILMER and SLASH from Guns N' Roses of all people.
Shepherd has no connection to "Breaking Bad", and ZERO experience working in Hollywood. So it's either a big joke, or he's delusional. It kind of seems like the latter. He also wants to cast LAURA SAN GIACOMO from "Just Shoot Me".
The spin-off is called "Anastasia", and his plan is to pick up right where "Breaking Bad" left off. Apparently he's already written ten episodes. As of last night, he'd raised about $400, and he's trying to raise HALF A MILLION.
By the way, BRYAN CRANSTON will be back on TV somewhat soon. HBO is turning his Broadway play "All the Way" into a movie. He won a Tony Award last month for playing President Lyndon Johnson in the play, and that's the part he'll play in the movie version too.
Ryan Gosling is Cooking for Pregnant Eva Mendes
US Weekly claims RYAN GOSLING has been cooking for pregnant girlfriend EVA MENDES. A source tells the magazine: Ryan goes out and gets the groceries. Eva's been wanting pasta, and he's cooking her meals. Ryan has already stepped into the role of caring father-to-be." (As if we needed more reasons to love Ryan Gosling. C'mon!!)
By the way, Life & Style Weekly claims Ryan and Eva will marry. A source tells the mag: "I think they will wed after the baby is born. Eva would love to eventually marry Ryan and be a family with their new baby. Ryan has changed the way she feels about it. They're madly in love with each other."
Jillian Michaels Reveals Why She Left "The Biggest Loser"
JILLIAN MICHAELS is finally opening up about what pushed her to to leave "The Biggest Loser."
"There were some fundamental differences [with the producers of "The Biggest Loser"] that have existed for a while," Michaels told People magazine. Those differences seem to be related to how Michaels was portrayed while in front of the camera. "In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love," Michaels said. But in the later seasons, the producers chose to feature less of the love and more of the tough, at least when it came to Michaels' team. "You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients," she said.
In the end, it was her reservations about certain aspects of the show coupled with the nasty side of fame spilling over into her personal life that had Michaels ready to call it quits.
Lindsay Lohan Wants to Move to London . . . Because They're Not Obsessed with Celebrities There?
LINDSAY LOHAN is in London, gearing up to make her stage debut in David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow" this October. It's her latest attempt to re-establish herself as an ACTRESS.
And she says she loves it in London so much, she's thinking of MOVING there . . . partly to avoid the paparazzi.
In a new interview with the BBC, she says that British people have, quote, "such a different outlook [about celebrities] . . . It's more news and politics and music. It feels good to turn on the TV and not have everything be all about gossip."
And because of that, she also thinks she has a better chance of being seen as a legitimate actress there than she does in the U.S.
She says that while she's on stage, people can quote, "focus on the fact that I'm [an] actress and an artist, and not just someone you take photos of."
Kate Middleton's "Friend" Told the Tabloids That She's Pregnant Again
KATE MIDDLETON'S "longtime friend," Jessica Hay, told the tabloids that Kate's pregnant again. She says, quote, "I've heard it from several different friends of theirs now and they're saying that they think there's going to be an official announcement in weeks."
Ordinarily, this would probably mean nothing, but this Jessica chick did have the scoop on Kate's first pregnancy, several weeks before the official announcement. If she IS a friend, it's unclear why she keeps blabbing to the tabloids.
Royal Baby #1, Prince George, turns one year old next Tuesday.
Is Ann Curry Joining "The View"?
According to the "New York Post", ANN CURRY is in talks to join "The View" next season. Ann is still under contract with NBC though. So ABC would have to work all that out first.
Barbara Walters left the show last month. Then Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy followed when they reportedly got FIRED. That only left Whoopi Goldberg, until ABC recently announced that Rosie O'Donnell is coming back.
If Ann DOES come on board, there would still be at least one open slot. Word is Bernadette Peters, Leah Remini, Meghan McCain and CNN's S.E. Cupp are possibilities.
And so is a potential MALE co-host, comedian Mario Cantone. He's been a regular guest on the "The View" for the past decade and you might also remember him as Charlotte's gay friend Anthony on "Sex and the City".
The Octomom Got Two Years Probation for Welfare Fraud
NADYA SULEMAN . . . you know, "The Octomom" . . . was back in court yesterday for her welfare fraud case in Los Angeles.
She was accused of accepting more than $26,000 in welfare payments to support her 14 kids . . . without disclosing the fact that she was making money from personal appearances and an adult relations movie she did back in 2012.
Anyway, the case WON'T be going to trial, because she pleaded no contest yesterday to one count of misdemeanor welfare fraud.
According to her lawyer, she borrowed money from friends to pay back what she owed. About $10,000 went to the state, and $16,000 went to Los Angeles County.
He also said they could have fought it if they wanted to, but Nadya hated the thought of going through a public trial.
So instead, the judge gave her 200 hours of community service, two years probation, and a small fine. Which isn't bad considering the fact that she was originally facing four FELONY counts, and could have gotten more than SIX YEARS in jail.
No one wanted that to happen though, including the prosecutor . . . because she has 14 KIDS to look after. The octuplets are five-years-old now, by the way.
Tracy Morgan Is Out of the Hospital, and He's Suing Walmart Over the Truck Driver Who Crashed Into Him
TRACY MORGAN is back home. He was in a physical rehab facility, recovering from a car crash in New Jersey last month. He suffered a broken leg and several broken ribs. On Saturday, his rep said he'll do the rest of his rehab from home.
Tracy also just filed a lawsuit against Walmart over the crash, because it was one of their trucks that slammed into the back of his limo around 1:00 A.M. on June 7th.
The lawsuit alleges that Walmart was negligent for overworking the driver, and he shouldn't have been on the road to begin with.
The 35-year-old driver had been working for 13-and-a-half hours when the crash happened, and he's accused of not sleeping for over 24 hours, which is against the law in New Jersey.
He was also doing 65 in a 45 when it happened, according to investigators.
Walmart released a statement on Saturday that said they're cooperating with the investigation, and still "committed to doing the right thing for all involved." Tracy and three other plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages.
JWoww Gave Birth Yesterday
JWOWW from "Jersey Shore" gave birth to a daughter yesterday. It's the first child for her and her fiancé, Roger Matthews.
In a statement, they said, quote, "[We] are so excited to welcome the newest guidette, Meilani Alexandra Mathews, to the world weighing seven pounds and 13 ounces . . . Meilani is already looking to trade her baby bottle for barbells."
It's unclear exactly how they're pronouncing "Meilani" . . . but we're assuming its "May-la-nee." It's also unclear whether they plan on nicknaming her MWoww. Let's hope not.
Susan Sarandon Is "Down with Cannabis", but Avoiding Cigarettes Is Why She Still Looks Good at 67
SUSAN SARANDON says the reason she still looks so good at age 67 is that she never smoked CIGARETTES. She's totally cool with smoking POT though.
Quote, "I'm down with cannabis, but tobacco is the worst for the skin. Apart from that, just practice moderation, because too much of anything takes its toll. Not too much sun, not too much alcohol, not too much food."
She also says she's not that unusual, and A LOT of women look good into their late 60s now. That might be a reference to plastic surgery. In the past, she's admitted to having a little bit of work done, but says she'd never go overboard with it.
"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" Made $73 Million This Weekend
"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" was the only new movie in theaters this weekend, so it easily took the #1 spot with $73 million. That's far better than "Rise of the Planet of the Apes", which made just under $55 million in 2011.
Here are this week's Top 5 movies:

Is Daniel Radcliffe Headed to Rehab . . . for Cigarettes?
We find this hard to believe. But with celebrities, I guess ANYTHING could be true. According to a British tabloid, DANIEL RADCLIFFE from "Harry Potter" is heading to rehab . . . so he can quit smoking CIGARETTES.
The not-so-reliable "Daily Star" says he smokes about a pack a day, and recently tried hypnotherapy and e-cigarettes. But neither of them worked, so he's desperate.
Daniel previously admitted that he's had issues with alcohol in the past, and used to show up to the "Harry Potter" set still DRUNK from the night before. But he says he got past that.
George Clooney Responds to 'Daily Mail' Report About Fiancee's Mom
GEORGE CLOONEY rarely responds to tabloid rumors but going after his future mother-in-law apparently is where he draws a line.
In a statement to USA TODAY he said, "I want to speak to the irresponsibility of Monday's Daily Mail report. I seldom respond to tabloids, unless it involves someone else and their safety or well being. The Daily Mail has printed a completely fabricated story about my fiancée's mother opposing our marriage for religious reasons."
The story cited sources who say AMAL ALAMUDDIN'S mother is upset that she's marrying outside their religion and that Amal could do better.

Pam Anderson Is Divorcing Rick Salomon . . . Again
PAM ANDERSON is divorcing RICK SALOMON . . . AGAIN. He's the guy who was in the PARIS HILTON sex tape from 2001.
Pam and Rick were briefly married back in 2007 . . . but it only lasted two months, and the marriage was annulled. Pam was married to TOMMY LEE and KID ROCK before that.
This time, Pam and Rick lasted longer . . . but not by much. Pam announced that they were married this past January, but didn't say when it went down.
Interestingly enough, just two days before Pam filed for divorce, Rick won $2.8 MILLION in a World Series of Poker event.
So unless they had a prenup, that could make Pam eligible for a piece of that under community property laws.
A Live-Action Version of "Dumbo" is In the Works
Disney is working on a live-action version of "Dumbo" . . . The story of a baby circus elephant with huge ears who learns to fly after being separated from his mother.
Dumbo himself will be computer-animated, and they're adding a, quote, "family story that parallels Dumbo's story." (FYI: The original 1941 animated version is only 64 minutes long.)
NBC's Miley Cyrus Concert Special Bombed in the Ratings
NBC'S two-hour "Miley Cyrus: Bangerz Tour" concert special was a bust on Sunday night. It only attracted two million viewers.
So either America is suffering from Miley Cyrus fatigue . . . or everyone was too exhausted from celebrating America all weekend to care.
Speaking of Miley, she did a video with her buddy WAYNE COYNE of THE FLAMING LIPS and MOBY. It's some sort of arty, trippy, sci-fi video . . . where Miley has a "magic brain," which Moby is trying to steal from her.
Madonna Actually Showed Up for Jury Duty . . . But Was Dismissed in Two Hours
MADONNA showed up for jury duty at a New York City courthouse yesterday . . . but they only kept her for about two hours before she was dismissed.
A court official said they already had more than enough potential jurors, and Madonna's presence was a potential distraction to the jury selection process. But he added that her appearance proves that, quote, "everyone gets called."
Madonna didn't have to hang around in the waiting room with the rest of the potential jurors. They let her wait in a clerk's office.
Mila Kunis Never Wanted to Get Married . . . Until Ashton Kutcher Came Along
Marriage was NEVER in the cards for MILA KUNIS . . . until things happened with ASHTON KUTCHER. Mila tells the new issue of "W" magazine, quote, "I never wanted to get married. From the age of 12, I prepared my parents for no marriage.
"Then things changed . . . I found the love of my life. Now my theory on weddings is: Don't invite anyone. Do it privately and secretly. My parents are okay with that. They're just excited that I said yes."
She added, quote, "We all get movie star crushes. I'm marrying mine." And also said that she's excited about being a full-time mom.
Does the Mother of George Clooney's Fiancee Think She Could Do Better?
So your daughter becomes the woman who finally locks down GEORGE CLOONEY. You've hit the jackpot, right? Maybe not. Sources say AMAL ALAMUDDIN'S mother is upset that she's marrying outside their religion.
Amal's parents are members of the Druze sect, an offshoot of Islam. And a source says, quote, "She thinks Amal can do better. She has been telling anyone that will listen, 'There are five hundred thousand Druze. Are none of them good enough for her?'"
Still, Amal's mother recently visited Clooney's estate in Lake Como, Italy, where the wedding is supposed to take place in September. And by all accounts, it was a great visit. So even if she WISHES Amal had married in-house, there's probably no real drama here.
