JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ had an up-and-down week. On Wednesday, they
reportedly spent the night together. But a dinner date on Friday night ended in disaster when Selena stormed out after just 10 minutes, then locked Justin out of her house. But he still ended up spending the night. He was spotted leaving Saturday morning. On Saturday night, Selena was seen hanging out with breakup queen TAYLOR SWIFT.
THE BIEBS DID WIN BIG AT THE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS THOUGH…
JUSTIN BIEBER pocketed THREE trophies last night at the "American Music Awards" including the night's first award, Favorite Male Artist - Pop/Rock. He told the crowd, quote, "I want to say this is for all the haters who thought maybe I was here for one or two years, but I feel like I'm going to be here for a very long time." He later performed an acoustic version of "As Long As You Love Me". But there was no mention of SELENA GOMEZ. In fact, Justin's date to the show was his MOM . . . whom he brought onstage for his third and final acceptance speech. NICKI MINAJ won TWO awards . . . Best Artist and Album in the Rap/Hip-Hop category. Other winners included Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jepsen, Carrie Underwood, Linkin Park and David Guetta. Not surprisingly, PINK gave the best performance of the night . . . basically recreating her " Try " video. (--You can see clips of the performance here.) PSY closed out the show with "Gangnam Style" but before it was over, it turned into a DUET when MC HAMMER hit the stage and the song turned into a mash-up of "Gangnam" and "Too Legit to Quit".
JOAN RIVERS WAS MISTAKEN FOR AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT?
Comedian Joan Rivers was questioned by border patrol agents in England last week, after being mistaken for an illegal immigrant. The 79-year-old and daughter Melissa were visiting a friend in Kent, followed by cameras for their WEtv show Joan and Melissa, Joan Knows Best. The pair and their crew were in a fishing vessel on the Swale Estuary, which is a well-known spot where people attempt to enter the country illegally. Border Agency officials were tipped off to a suspicious looking group, which is why they stopped Joan’s vessel. They were eventually allowed to continue, and it sounds like Joan didn’t mind the mix up. She said, “Even though we were innocent, I am sorry they didn’t arrest us. I love Englishmen and they were very cute.”

DID THE ELMO PUPPETEER ACTUALLY PAY OFF HIS ACCUSER? THAT’S WHAT TMZ IS SAYING…
Last week, a man accused Elmo puppeteer KEVIN CLASH of having sex with him when he was only 16 . . . then quickly took it all back. TMZ reported that Clash and his accuser had been in settlement talks shortly before the retraction. And now, they're saying that Clash DID pay the guy $125,000. But there was one condition: The man's attorneys had to release the following statement: "[The accuser] wants it to be known that his sexual relationship with Mr. Clash was an adult consensual relationship." Which is EXACTLY the statement they released. So-called "sources" say the accuser still claims privately that he WAS underage during his relationship with Clash . . . and that he was CRYING during final negotiations and repeatedly saying he didn't want to sign.
ANNA NICOLE SMITH’S DAUGHTER IS APPARENTLY A MODEL FOR GUESS JEANS NOW?
ANNA NICOLE SMITH'S Guess Jeans ad campaign in the early '90s helped launch her to stardom. And now, her 6-year-old daughter Dannielynn is following in her footsteps. Dannielynn just did a photo shoot for Guess. And it sounds like she enjoyed it. Her dad Larry Birkhead says, quote, "She said, 'Now tell me, when am I going to be on those shopping bags?' "She asked if she was going to be on billboards, and I said, 'Maybe . . . you never know.'" Before any of that happens, though, Larry wants Dannielynn to, quote, "be a kid and have school." (--Check out video from the shoot here.)
AMERICAN CHOPPER IS ENDING FOR GOOD…SUPPOSEDLY
"American Chopper" will end its 10-year run next month, following a previously announced live special featuring a four-way bike build-off. The two-part special, titled "The Revenge", will air on December 10th and 11th. The Discovery Channel confirmed the cancellation in a press release . . . but an executive producer is suggesting that there's a chance it could live on. He says, quote, "'American Chopper' was canceled before and we came back even stronger. It's been a resilient, powerful show. Right now they're telling me it's canceled. I can only comment: 'Who knows what the future holds.'" "American Chopper" premiered as a Discovery Channel special in 2002. Not long after, it was turned into a full-on series. In 2008, Discovery moved the show to its sister channel, TLC. A couple years later, TLC canceled it . . . then they brought it back under the new title, "American Chopper: Junior vs. Senior"

According to TV Guide, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora will sit in as the house band for CBS’ The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson for the week of December 3.

GUESS THINGS AREN’T SO PEACHY IN THE AEROSMITH CAMP…
It appears there are less than warm and fuzzy feelings amongst the members of Aerosmith, who are currently crisscrossing the country on their Global Warming tour. Sources tell the New York Post the five guys are “barely speaking to each other,” tensions boiling over following the tepid reaction to their just released and highly publicized album Music From Another Dimension which enjoyed lukewarm first-week sales of 63,000 copies. The source said, “The band isn’t really talking. No dates on the current tour are sold out.” But a spokesperson for the group said, “Aerosmith is doing great and on tour and on fire.” On fire? Or blowing up?

OBAMA JUST BECAME THE FIRST SITING PREZ TO VISIT MYANMAR
President Barack Obama on Sunday arrived in Myanmar, also known as Burma, encouraging leaders of the once-brutal and repressive military government to continue its path towards democracy, a progressive course that led Obama to become the first sitting U.S. president to visit the country. According to excerpts of the speech he will deliver today, Obama is scheduled to say, “Reforms launched from the top of society must meet the aspirations of citizens who form its foundation.” Obama will meet with Myanmar’s President Thein Sein as well as Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi who spent decades under house arrest for her pro-democracy stance and who is now a member of parliament.

WALMART’S WORKERS ARE STILL PLANNING TO PROTEST BLACK FRIDAY AND WALMART AIN’T BACKING DOWN…
The world’s largest retailer is not prepared to take a threat by its employees to stage a walkout on Black Friday sitting down. Wal-Mart workers plan to stage nationwide walkouts on Black Friday calling on the retail giant to end what they call retaliation against employees who speak out for better pay, fair schedules and affordable health care. In a statement, Wall-Mart spokesman David Tovar said, “If [the store employees] are scheduled to work, we expect them to show up and do their job. If they don’t, depending on the circumstances, there could be consequences.” Tovar added that the number of employees threatening to stage the walkout is a “very small minority” of the company’s 1.3 million workforce.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE? A MISSOURI MAN PLANNED A TWILIGHT MASSACRE THIS WEEKEND BUT WAS CAUGHT
A Missouri man was arrested Thursday for plotting to shoot up a theater showing The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Blaec Lammers was charged with first degree assault, making a terrorist threat and armed criminal action after his mother contacted police telling them he bought weapons similar to the ones used during the Aurora, Colorado shooting that killed 12 people during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises. According to police, Lammers purchased two assault rifles and 400 rounds of ammo, allegedly for hunting, but then told cops he had homicidal thoughts, and added he had “a lot in common with the people that have been involved in those shootings.” He eventually admitted to buying tickets to a Sunday screening of the final Twilight movie, with the intention of shooting people in the theater. He then changed his mind and decided to go on his shooting spree at a local Wal-Mart because he could refill his ammunition there if he had run out.
PEOPLE ARE STRAIGHT UP HOARDING TWINKIES NOW THAT HOSTESS HAS SHUT DOWN…
On Friday, Hostess announced they were officially shutting down, and immediately stopped producing Twinkies. That sparked a nationwide panic where some people flocked to grocery stores to buy Twinkies and hoard them, or sell them on eBay for inflated prices. Anyway, don't buy them. The Twinkies brand is going to be auctioned off and most likely WILL be back.
AFTER BEING RE-ELECTED, CORTLAND COUNTY NEW YORK’S DISTRICT ATTORNEY HAD TO REVEAL HE USED TO BE IN PORN!
On Election Day, voters in Cortland County in upstate New York reelected Mark Suben as district attorney. A little over a week later, he called a press conference to admit something to the voters. Apparently rumors had been circulating before the election that Mark had a past in PORN, which he'd denied. But it turns out that in the 1970s, Mark WAS a porn star, working under the name "Gus Thomas." Last week, an anonymous person put together a YouTube video featuring clips of Gus Thomas movies, and clips of Mark today. And yes, since it was the '70s, he had a CLASSIC '70s porn mustache. He still has a mustache today. Old habits die hard.
Mark couldn't deny it anymore, so he called the press conference to admit he'd lied. Some of the movies where Gus Thomas performed included "Deep Throat Part Two", "Bedroom Bedlam", and "Doctor's Teenage Dilemma". Mark has been the DA for Cortland County since 2008. At his press conference he refused to answer questions about resigning, and his spokeswoman says he has no plans to go anywhere.
THE FLORIDA CLASSIC CROWD FIZZLED THIS WEEKEND THANKS TO THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE MARCHING 100…
AH YES, THE OL’ SHOPLIFTING BY HIDING STUFF IN YOUR FAT ROLLS TRICK…
Two overweight men made off with thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen merchandise from an Oklahoma Walmart by hiding the items in their fat rolls! Surveillance footage shows the large men examining a case containing expensive digital cameras. The portly perps unlocked the case and put the cameras in a backpack, which they took to an area that wasn’t observable by security cameras. There, they removed the items from their packages, then left the store through the check-out line, paying for several smaller items. Shortly after the men left the store, employees discovered the empty packages and determined the thieves must have hidden the cameras “somewhere on their bodies.” Unfortunately, the criminals are still at large…in more ways than one.
BEHOLD: THE VEGGIEDUCKEN!
CRACKER JACK IS RELEASING A NEW CAFFEINATED VERSION OF THE SNACK…DOES ANYONE STILL EAT THIS CRAP?
Frito-Lay has announced they're about to release a new line of caffeinated CRACKER JACKS. And to their credit, they've got a pretty good name: Cracker Jack'd. They'll have the same caramel popcorn and peanuts . . . but with something they call "power bites" wafers mixed in. And those are made with coffee. A two-ounce bag of Cracker Jack'd will have about 70 milligrams of caffeine. For comparison's sake, that's about the same as a regular-sized can of Red Bull, which has 80 milligrams of caffeine. But it's SIGNIFICANTLY less than a cup of Starbucks coffee. A tall regular coffee at Starbucks has 260 milligrams of caffeine. It's also about HALF of the caffeine you get in a 5-Hour Energy bottle. Cracker Jack'd will be in stores before the end of the year. CLICK HERE
ONLY 1 IN 5 FAMILIES WILL HAVE A REAL XMAS TREE THIS YEAR…
According to a new survey, only ONE in FIVE families say they're going to have a real Christmas tree this year. 13% will buy a tree from a garden store or Christmas tree lot, and 5% will dig up their own tree for the house. 49% of households will put up an artificial tree that's green like the real thing. 19% will buy an artificial tree that's a different color, like white or red. And 14% say they aren't going to have a tree this year. The main reason people gave for going with an artificial tree or no tree over a real one is the cost difference. The second-most common reason was that people felt buying a real tree just to throw it away a month later isn't very "green."

THE STEELERS WORE THOSE AWFUL JERSEYS AGAIN, WTF! MAYBE THAT’S WHY THEY LOST
Sunday night’s dogfight between the Steelers and Ravens at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh left the bruised and battered home team licking their wounds and the visitors thankful for a two-game lead over their AFC North rivals ahead of Thanksgiving Day. Baltimore beat Pittsburgh 13-10 thanks to a Jacoby Jones 63-yard punt return and a pair of Justin Tucker field goals, despite the normally slow and immobile backup quarterback Byron Leftwich giving the Steelers an early 7-0 lead on an improbable 31-yard scamper. Leftwich made his first start in over three years for the injured Steelers field general Ben Roethlisberger. The two teams will meet again in two weeks in Baltimore.

Meanwhile, Alabama took advantage of losses by former No. 1 Kansas and ex-No. 2 Oregon to move into the No. 2 spot. Fellow SEC teams Georgia and Florida are No. 3 and 4, respectively, while Oregon fell to No. 5 and Kansas dropped to No. 6. LSU, Stanford, Texas A&M and Florida State round out the top 10. Here's the rest of the Top 25.
TENNESSEE CANNED THEIR COACH AFTER JUST THREE SEASONS!
Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley was fired Sunday after leading the Volunteers to a 15-21 record during his three-year tenure. Tennessee’s 41-18 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday sealed the school’s third straight losing season, the first time the squad has suffered three consecutive losing campaigns since 1909-11. Adding to Dooley’s downfall was the fact that his record against top 25 teams was a disastrous 0-15.

He drives a Dodge with the number 2 on the sides, but after a 15th place finish Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Brad Keselowski completed the Chase for the NASCAR championship at No. 1, winning the Sprint Cup Series championship. After receiving his trophy, the Michigan native said, “Always, throughout my whole life, I’ve been told I’m not big enough, not fast enough, not strong enough and I don’t have what it takes. I’ve used that as a chip on my shoulder… I’m not big enough, fast enough, strong enough. No person is. Only a team can do that.” Keselowski delivered the first Sprint Cup championship to Penske Racing.
