Another day, another Justin Bieber scandal. In the past, many of Hollywood’s elite have voiced their negative opinions of the Biebs, but recently Orlando Bloom chose to use his fists instead. Early Wednesday morning, it appears that the Biebs and Bloom were in less of a partying mood, and more of a fighting one. It’s not clear what sparked the fight (as if you need a reason to hit Bieber), but we’re totally #TeamOrlando. Bloom joins the ranks of these other celebrity Bieber-haters.
This funny man first tweeted his sincerest feelings about Bieber back in January:
All jokes aside, Justin Bieber is a piece of shit.
— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) January 23, 2014
When he appeared on Howard Stern's radio show, Rogen elaborated with a story. When Rogen and Bieber were both guests on a German talk show, a member of Bieber's team reached out to Rogen because the pop star wanted to meet him. It wasn’t exactly the meet up he’d expected.
"[...] I went outside to meet him and he was acting like I asked to meet him. It was very nonchalant, 'Yo man. Wassup,' and I was like, 'What the f*ck, I don't give a f*ck about, I don't want to meet you. Don't act all nonplussed to meet me. I didn't want to meet you. I was totally cool not meeting you… But I was like, fine, I wouldn't have said anything, I was like, 'He's a bit of a motherf*cker. Whatever. He's young, the kid's a dick.'"
In 2012, Bell began his hobby of being Justin Bieber's biggest hater, using Twitter as his weapon. At first, the tweets were pretty tame.
I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry....bieber however lol
— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012
It didn't stop there, though. Bell continued poking fun at Bieber’s talent and his "crazy" #beliebers over time. It’s become commonplace in the Twitter world for Bell to shoot off a crack or two about Bieber. But more recently, Bell has unleashed his true and honest hatred for Bieber.
When is someone going to tell this idiot he can't draw.His art is almost as bad as his music. Talentless artless pic.twitter.com/N3xiPFfQNz

Wilde isn’t a fan of how often Bieber is shirtless (same Olivia, same). She took to Twitter last March to rant, “Bieber, put your f*cking shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)” She's since deleted this tweet.
The former Saturday Night Live cast member doesn’t have any fond memories from when Bieber hosted the late-night gig. Hader even considers Bieber the worst host in the show's history.
When he appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show, McHale was asked why someone would egg a house. His quick response was, “Because he’s a f*cking idiot.”
In his interview with Men’s Health, Hamm made it apparent that he believes Bieber is a person without any real life skills.
"Look at Bieber or whoever. You’re like, ‘What the fuck, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame. Is there a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, shithead!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish?’ Life skills are something we’re missing.”
Jon Bon Jovi:
Bon Jovi, whose career spans longer than Bieber’s life, talked to The London Evening Standard about Bieber’s blatant disregard for his fans, showing up anywhere from an hour to two hours late to his concerts.
"Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new. [...] Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won’t have you back. Then it just becomes a cliché. It’s really not cool — you’re an asshole. Go to f***in’ work!”
Like some of us, Wilson wanted to look back on the good ol’ Bieber days. We might have separate opinions on what those actually are, however.
Im starting to miss the young, adorable mop bucket peeing, house egging & strip club raging Bieber of 2013. #belieber #DUIeber

Like Drake Bell, Padalecki has no shame in taunting Bieber on Twitter. During the scandalous “Egg-gate,” Padalecki tweeted the star directly.
"Hey @justinbieber, how much are you paying your friend for pretending that it was HIS cocaine, and taking the fall for you?"
Braff was there to tweet what we all really felt when Bieber’s life became a DUI, drag-racing hot mess.
Who amongst us hasn't drag-raced a Lambo in Miami on pills? #FreeBieber

Another tweeter-than-deleter, Biggs once went off on a massive Twitter rant, unleashing some intense feelings about the Biebs.
“Can you beat the c*** out of Bieber? Is that what you can do?”
“Maybe the police kept getting contact highs whenever they went over there?”
“I would get my actual jaguar and smear him in meat when I went to make my citizen’s arrest.”
And of course, the most recent, Orlando Bloom:
Bloom finally did what we’ve all wanted to do, if we’re being honest, and took a swing at Bieber. This may not actually count as a fight, but we’re still going to say Bloom totally won.

Orlando Bloom Throws Punch at Justin Bieber
Bonus points: Bloom's Lord Of The Rings buddy, Dominic Monaghan, had the best reaction to this situation, ever.
.@TheLadBible: Orlando has won infinite lad points after punching Justin Bieber last night in Ibiza For the shire! http://t.co/yotFnVReEj”

Many people are thrilled that Orlando Bloom took a swing at pop star Justin Bieber the other night in Ibiza—so much so, that they are petitioning the White House to honor the actor with National Orlando Bloom Day:
On a fateful evening this July 29, 2014 actor Orlando Bloom fed the Pop Music miscreant Justin Bieber a knuckle-sandwich on behalf of the entire civilized world.
If you agree that Bloom is both incredibly hot (yes, that's somewhat unrelated) and incredibly amazing for his actions against Bieber, you can sign here.

Former Queensryche star Geoff Tate will no longer be touring under his old band's name from the beginning of September (14) after announcing a new moniker on Wednesday (30Jul14). His ex-bandmates agreed Tate could continue touring as Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate until the end of the summer in a settlement that ended a year-long legal battle between the rockers, and now the singer has agreed to move on with a new touring act.
Beginning in September, the band he now fronts will be known as Operation: Mindcrime.
Announcing the name-change news to fans he says, "It is so refreshing to be able to concentrate on the many stories and ideas that I have been working on with no boundaries or restrictions. With the newly-named band, I think fans will continue to enjoy the music we create and perform together and hope they share this new musical journey with us.”
Tate's final tour as Queensryche Starring Geoff Tate begins in California on Wednesday night.
Sinead O'Connor's last-minute Womad set helped give festival bosses their first sell-out in seven years over the weekend (24-27Jul14). Organisers of England's annual world music gathering were left scrambling for a third headliner when Bobby Womack passed away last month (Jun14), and they were thrilled when O'Connor agreed to close the festival on Sunday night (27Jul14).
Her spot led to WOMAD's first sell-out since the event relocated to Wiltshire from Reading in 2007.
As a result, over 40,000 music fans attended the four-day festival, which also featured performances by Youssou N'Dour, Richard Thompson and Manu Dibango.
Rocker Jack White made a surprise appearance to join his pal Beck onstage at the Newport Folk Festival on Saturday night (26Jul14). The Loser hitmaker served as the headliner at the Providence, Rhode Island music event, and for his encore, the White Stripes star stunned fans by joining him for his final songs.
Beck introduced White as "the best bartender in the world" before the two went into Beck's Pay No Mind and Loser.
Sean Lennon also made an unexpected appearance by joining the duo for an extended version of Where It's At, playing a tambourine.
Easy listening superstar Jimmy Buffett has launched an online TV network so fans can stream his concerts live. The singer's Margaritaville TV has been well received by his 'Parrothead' devotees, who have flocked to the seven broadcasts available earlier this year (14), and as Buffett plans for his latest stream on Friday night (25Jul14), he tells Billboard even he's staggered by the feedback.
He says, "It has been unbelievable. There was one element of my inner circle that thought we'd be cannibalising ourselves by going on television. But I played my instincts, and I haven't had one person say they'll watch it instead of going to the show. They do both.
"They watch the (online) shows and get charged up to go see it in person. And there are other people that can't get to a show that absolutely love the fact we're doing it.
"My friends in Bora Bora now can punch (the shows) up on the screen and watch it while they're having dinner. It makes it a Parrothead world now, not just a nation. I think it's the way you're going to get to see us in the future. The number of shows is going down. We're taking off a little more time every year. We're not going anywhere, but this way people can make it to any show, even if we're not playing around where they are."
Buffett also has his own 24-hour Margaritaville satellite radio network, which offers fans the chance to listen to his music and live concerts.
Rocker Tom Petty has never listened to the his soundtrack for Ed Burns' 1996 movie She's The One because he insists every track is "crummy" and "terrible". The Free Fallin' hitmaker composed the music for the film, using largely unused tracks and ideas from his 1994 album Wildflowers, and he still regrets agreeing to hit the studio for the movie.
He tells Men's Journal magazine, "I hated that record - the whole idea of it offended me. I only did it because I didn't have anything else to do. I was single and living on my own, and this idea came up, and I liked Ed and thought he was pretty sharp, so I wrote him a couple of songs. And then it just kept mushrooming into, 'Do the whole thing'.
"So I took some stuff I hadn't used in Wildflowers, really crummy versions, badly mixed, and put them on there. It was terrible, really. I'm disappointed I did that."
But he did briefly enjoy recording the album's catchy opening track, Walls (Circus), with Fleetwood Mac star Lindsey Buckingham, adding, "I do remember trying to talk Lindsey into joining the band (Heartbreakers) that night. I said, 'Why don't you just join our band and take the heat off of me?'"
Michael Douglas can't wait to see the Broadway musical adaptation of his hit film War Of The Roses - because he thinks it will be hilarious. The movie star portrayed a husband trying to end his marriage in the 1989 film, which also starred Kathleen Turner and Danny DeVito, and he'll be one of the first in line to see the stageshow.
He tells WENN, "It's fabulous, a great idea... There should be a lot of great sight gags."
And Douglas might be in the running to reprise his character onstage: "I always say I want to do Broadway. I did some theatre years ago and I was watching (wife) Catherine (Zeta-Jones) doing A Little Night Music and she was having all those hours versus movie hours, and of course, with actresses, it's a little more with hair and make-up; two shows twice a week.
"I say I want to do it and I would love to, but I haven't. I'm lazy."
Ted Nugent has attacked Idaho casino bosses who have axed his upcoming show at the Worley venue over his outspoken views. Coeur d’Alene Casino owners cited the rocker's "history of racist and hate-filled remarks" when they pulled his upcoming date (04Aug14), and now Nugent is firing back, claiming he has become a victim of America's liberals over his anti-Barack Obama and pro-hunting beliefs.
He tells Radio.com, "They literally have an army assigned to destroy Ted Nugent. To call me a racist is a clear act of desperation. Because everybody knows I’m not a racist!
"My bass player Johnny Gunnel happens to be a black guy. My bass player Marco Mendoza was born in Mexico! Are you kidding me? I pay tribute to Martin Luther King in my songs, I’ve always said my music is a direct result of Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley, and all the black musical heroes of my life."
Further attacking what he calls the "sick, stoned, hygiene-challenged (director) Michael Moore fans", the Cat Scratch Fever rocker adds, "They call in and complain that I’m a racist, they claim I’m a paedophile, that I dodged the draft. They call all the promoters, they call all the venues, they call all my sponsors, every day. Meanwhile, what am I doing? I’m going to rock my a** off tonight. And tomorrow night. And the next night."
Nugent is currently touring to promote his new album Shutup & Jam!

Sundance is long gone, Cannes sailed away months ago, and both Tribeca and the Los Angeles Film Festivals have cleared away until next year. But when one major film festival ends, another starts putting its lineup together, and this time, it's Canada's time to shine. The Toronto International Film Festival, which will run from September 4 until the 14, has unveiled the list of titles they'll be premiering this year, and it's packed with under-the-radar indies, highly anticipated returns from accliamed directors, and of course, several likely awards contenders. But with nearly 60 films all making their debut in Toronto this fall, it can be hard to pick out the good from the bad and the exciting from the ones you've probably seen before. In an attempt to simplify the decision-making process for you, we've highlighted some of the most exciting films to hit north of the border this fall.
