Justin Bieber told TMZ that he's never heard anyone complain about him being a brat. Apparently, there was a rumor flying around that claimed Biebs was acting a fool on a flight from L.A. to Asia (he's supposedly refused to take a photo with the pilot and was "difficult" with the flight attendants), but Bieber responded to the allegations with "I don't think you should believe everything you hear...people make stuff up all the time." The last person to claim Biebs was a little bastard was Marg Helgenberger...who, incidentally, will be out of a job after the new season of CSI airs. So.... - TMZ
In addition to encouraging us to boycott NBC's new show, The Playboy Club, Gloria Steinem is now insisting that we ignore the Kardashian sisters as well. When Newsweek's editor Tina Brown asked Steinem if she thought the Kardashians "empower" other women, Steinem replied, "No. They're not empowering women, but there's no point in blaming the people who take advantage of the system without changing the system. Imagine if this were a family of boys. If men were rewarded for the same things, they would be doing it too." On Lady Gaga, however, Steinem is a supporter. "I think she speaks for outsiders and she champions being yourself no matter what. It seems positive to me." - NYDN

Imagine former Survivor winners Richard and Tina going head-to-head in an all-star tournament. The concept is not that far fetched, especially if the show's executive producer, Mark Burnett, has a say in it.
Burnett, the reality impresario who launched a television phenomenon in summer 2000 with the first Survivor installment, is working on an all-star adaptation of the hit reality show. According to Variety, the "tournament of champions" version would pit past contestants from the first four Survivor seasons against one another.
A spokesman for CBS told Variety that while the concept of an all-star Survivor has been talked about at the network, there is no timetable for when the project would air or who the participants would be.
"We're always looking to add a new wrinkle to the franchise," he added.
The regular Survivor series matches 16 contestants all vying for $1 million over a 13-week period.
But this is not the first time rumors of a new Survivor project have surfaced.
Last June, CBS chief Leslie Moonves said the network had plans to produce a celebrity version of Survivor that would likely include network sitcom stars Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Kevin James (King of Queens), L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant and actor/singer Frank Stallone.
While being interviewed on Howard Stern's syndicated radio show last summer, Moonves was asked if the celebrity Survivor series was a done deal, to which he replied, "We think, yes." But a CBS spokesman later told the New York Daily News that such a series was "still very much in the discussion stage."
