Justin Bieber is keen to put his wild days behind him and settle down after a series of antics landed him in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The pop superstar has been accused of urinating in a restaurant mop bucket, spitting at a DJ, fighting with photographers, showing up late for concerts and driving his sports cars around his Calabasas, California neighbourhood at high speeds, prompting critics to question his judgment and suggest the teenager is heading for a disaster.
But it appears Bieber is keen to med his ways and get serious about his life after telling In Touch magazine he wants to get married and start a family.
The 19-year-old singer, who recently split from longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez, tells the publication, "I can't wait to have a beautiful wife and little kids running around, but those things are in God's hands, not mine.
"I'm not going to lie. It's fun to be young, fall in love and be in love. My mom taught me how to treat a woman right, so I enjoy taking a girl out and doing nice things for her. Everyone deserves to feel like they are the most special person in the world."
And he wishes the media would focus more on what he does onstage and in the recording studio, and less on his life away from the spotlight and the microphone.
He adds, "Sometimes I think people get distracted... and forget that I'm here to create music. I put everything I have into my music, and I wish people would focus more on that."
Teen actress Chloe Grace Moretz was once left stunned after a fan of her action movie Kick-Ass asked the star to hit him in the face. The Hugo star, who plays ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl in the film franchise, reveals she is often left feeling a little uncomfortable by devotees' requests and one encounter last year (12) was no different.
She tells U.S. TV host Conan O'Brien, "I was at a Paul McCartney concert about a year ago and this guy was really drunk and he came up to me and he was like, 'Hey man, are you Hit-Girl?' There's a moment where you think, 'Maybe I lie' and say, 'I'm from, like, Arkansas and I'm visiting.' Then he's like, 'Will you just punch me in the face?' No I'm not going to punch you in the face, but thank you for asking."
The organizers of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival have released the full list of films they're planning to screen during the Sept. 5 - 15 fete. It's a decidedly more down to earth list of titles than appeared at Cannes in May but may boast even more Oscar contenders: films like August: Osage County, The Fifth Estate, Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom, 12 Years a Slave, Gravity, and one very special new film from Hayao Miyazaki, The Wind Rises. Here are five takeaways we had from this year's TIFF lineup, and below that, you'll find a list of select titles from the lineup for which we're especially excited.
1. Character is King — Deeply felt character studies dominate the lineup this year rather than movies driven more by visual flash. Some are more or less traditional biopics like Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom, Bill Condon's The Fifth Estate, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, and Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. Ron Howard's Rush emphasizes the clash of personalities between Formula 1 drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) as much as it does the races. And Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity, perhaps the biggest visual spectacle on the TIFF lineup, is notable for being a portrait of a female astronaut (Bullock) and her struggle to survive after an accident while also dealing with her lingering emotional distress following the death of her daughter. Toronto this year is truly an actor's market. Even more so because...
2. A Bunch of Actors Are Trying Their Hand at Directing — Jason Bateman is making his feature-film directing debut with the spelling bee revenge comedy Bad Words, while James Franco is following up his (pretty much unwatched) Hart Crane and Sal Mineo biopics with his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Child of God. And of course Joseph Gordon-Levitt will unspool his directorial debut, Don Jon, which is also the first time we've seen him with a gelled-up pompadour.
3. Cory Monteith Is Well Represented – The late Glee star has not one but two films at TIFF, Gia Milani's All the Wrong Reasons and Josh C. Waller's McCanick, both of which will make their world premiere at the fest.
4. This is the Place for Smaller, More Personal Films — While Cannes can still celebrate movies that might not otherwise find an audience (like Abdellatif Kechiche's Palme d'Or winner Blue Is the Warmest Color, also at TIFF), Toronto goes all-in for small films. Just this past May Cannes got showy movies from big, flashy directors like Roman Polanski, the Coen Brothers, Baz Luhrmann, Nicolas Winding Refn, Stephen Soderbergh, and Takashi Miike. But this year Toronto will draw Steve McQueen, Kelly Reichardt, Stephen Frears, Jason Reitman, and Alex Gibney, often the makers of quieter, more introspective films — films that may not even have found a distributor yet. That's ultimately why...
5. Toronto Is More Important Than Cannes — Actor and Lars von Trier repertory member Jean-Marc Barr once told me, "Cannes is now like the G8 summit." It's pretty corporate and not as essential these days for films really looking for a distributor. Looked at another way, Palme d'Or winner Blue Is the Warmest Color still doesn't have a North American distributor. However, Toronto is the perfect laboratory for testing out films with a North American audience — if Franco's Child of God doesn't get a distributor after TIFF, it might not get one at all. You can also see Toronto as the first stop on the Oscar circuit. If there's a groundswell of support for Sandra Bullock for Best Actress consideration for Gravity, it'll be because buzz was first generated among potential Oscar voters at Toronto, not Cannes.
Here are some of the most notable films appearing TIFF 2013. What are you looking forward to?

Young actress Emma Roberts is determined to challenge Hollywood's marriage laws when she finds her Mr. Right, because when she weds, she'll wed for life. The Scream 4 star's parents - actor Eric Roberts and mum Kelly Cunningham - split when she was a child and her famous aunt Julia has one failed marriage behind her, so the 22 year old knows just how difficult it is to keep a relationship together in the spotlight.
However, she insists she'll only get married and start a family when she knows she's found the perfect guy.
Roberts, who is currently working on her romance with actor Evan Peters after she was accused of attacking him in a Canadian hotel last month (Jul13), tells Nylon magazine, "I've been with people in the past who lie about what they're doing or whom they're with, and you always find out about it.
"I've grown up in a business where we're taught to think that relationships don't last, and that people are supposed to be married a bunch of times. But I come from the school of getting married once... Everyone kind of rolls their eyes at me, but I still believe in the romantic movie outcome."
The Wanted star Nathan Sykes has attempted to end the feud between his band and rivals One Direction once and for all by suggesting they team up on a charity record. Following months of bickering between the two groups, Sykes insists the rivalry is over and now both acts are keen to get along.
He tells Hollyscoop.com, "We have no issue with them whatsoever. I think it's very expected from the media always trying to put two bands together and trying to start a rivalry."
He adds, "They (One Direction) are great lads who've stayed true to their sound so far in their career," and he'd even welcome a collaboration: "That could generate a lot of cash maybe and we would actually be willing to do it for charity."
Unfortunately, level-headed Sykes was still recovering from a vocal issue in England when his bandmates appeared on U.S. TV show Katie earlier this year and revealed the rivalry between The Wanted and One Direction was real.
And, earlier this year (13), the two boy bands exchanged barbs over Twitter.com after One Direction's Louis Tomlinson made a sly dig at The Wanted during a gig in London.
Tom Parker apparently took exception to his comments and tweeted, "You even talk about us at your own gigs. Are you that upset you didn't get in this band?" to which Tomlinson replied, "Pal, we both know I wouldn't waste my time auditioning for your band. You humour me with your bad boy persona."
Parker then posted a clip of Tomlinson's first audition on the U.K. version of The X Factor and sarcastically commented "nice work", while the What Makes You Beautiful hitmaker insisted, "I actually think you could be the biggest t**t on Twitter... P.S. enjoy the press from this... Funny that face to face you act like a little girl. Goodnight old friend."
His bandmate Liam Payne then interjected: "Tom let's talk about your singing... your amazing tone pierces my ears with every note," while Tomlinson added, "I also heard he wets the bed."
The Wanted's Jay McGuiness then butted in to give Tomlinson a piece of his mind, writing, "Please stop mentioning us in your gigs, we certainly no longer mention you and it's time to let dead dogs lie. Your passive-aggressive style of speaking makes me cringe... I'm not sure what's happened since we saw you at The X Factor, but you've done a sterling job of becoming one of the most overrated, arrogant and not to mention insincere people around."
Tomlinson tried to get the last word by tweeting, "Jay, this would be a lovely insight for your next book. You must have been a splendid student. Never forget you boys started this."
From portraying a sadistic Bond villain to the world's most notorious cannibal, Mads Mikkelsen is so good at playing bad. But in The Hunt, a Danish film by director and screenwriter Thomas Vinterberg (The Celebration), Mikkelsen does a complete 180 and plays a wronged, innocent man.
Lucas (Mikkelsen) is a kindergarten teacher beloved by students and community members alike. But when a little girl falsely accuses him of sexual abuse, he becomes persecuted by his friends and neighbors. The audience suffers along with Lucas as his life spirals into desperate chaos. Lucas' pain, grief, and frustration is all the more immediate thanks to Mikkelsen's powerful performance — one that earned him Best Actor at the 2012 Cannes Festival.
Hollywood.com sat down with Mikkelsen to hear about his experience making this heartbreaking, incredible film. And, because we couldn't resist, we dug for some dirt on Season 2 of Hannibal.
Hollywood.com: Congratulations on the film, first of all. I thought it was incredible — hard to watch at times, but incredible. What drew you to the project initially?Mads Mikkelsen: The script itself was extremely beautiful and heartbreaking — and frustrating to read, because I got the same sense that the audience gets, a sense of frustration. You feel the need to do something, hit someone, kill someone! We spent a lot of time discussing why we had that feeling of danger, if it's something we should change. Should [Lucas] do more? We realized, no, he's reacting the right [way]. He's going straight to the source, to the kindergarten, straight to his friends; he's doing everything right in a civilized manner, but the doors are going clomp, clomp, clomp [closing in his face]. So he's realized that he could scream up louder and he would be guilty in the town's eyes. If he was quiet, he's still guilty ... So it's really frustrating to read, because he's doing what I probably would've done myself and that was not enough. So, that was a major reason. And working with Thomas [Vinterberg, the director]. I've always wanted to do so. We've known each other for years and we never had the chance to do anything, but then all of a sudden it came along.
How was it working with Annika Wedderkopp, who played Klara? Your relationship with her is obviously the crux of the movie. How did you build that trust and that rapports with her? Well, it's basically… it's my job to figure that you can tell the girl as much as you want. I just had to spend time with her and have fun with her. And she is a kid. Just have fun and ask and play and go for a walk so she'd feel comfortable with me. And that was established the same way with the guy who plays my son [Lasse Fogelstrøm].
Basically for me, it's just hanging in there, because I cannot plan, and I don't think that should be too much of an actor's job to plan too much anyway ... With kids, you've got to hang in there, forget your planning, and be as honest as you can with the scene. Then you probably become better than you normally are. So, I think it's a gift working with kids. I can see there being a problem for people who are used to planning their own scene, but they would rarely act with the other guy anyway.
Well, Annika was really wonderful.She was absolutely fantastic. She was a gift. Obviously the way she looks, the way she's so natural with the things she's doing — and the thing with her nose [mimes wiping his nose]. The best thing about the whole thing was that when she was done doing something that was quite emotional, she would just jump into the corner and play with her friends. She was not affected by it at all, which is like, "Oh, thank God!" Because, that could be a long day if we have to build her up every time.
There are a few scenes that stand out in my mind as being particularly intense — the grocery store scene and the church scene near the end. They're engrossing for sure, but also hard to watch because they seem so real and the emotions are so strong. How did you prepare for those?They were both scenes that were highly anticipated by me and Thomas — like, finally! Finally, I get to do this! They are very different scenes in terms of what we're trying to say. I mean, they're both stuff that starts happening, spur of the moment. Obviously, in the supermarket, when he's being humiliated, and he comes back for a split second and doesn't know what to do, he head butts the guy. And the others go, "We didn't see that coming from this guy!" And [the viewers] all go, "Yes! Thank you!" So we as an audience, it's very interesting, could not live with him treating this in a civilized manner. We enjoy when he become uncivilized, just like the others. That's what we enjoy and that's very interesting. Do we really give up and say that you cannot win this battle in a civilized manner, you can only do this as an animal? That's very interesting. That was not truly a difficult scene, [we were] just playing and we enjoyed it — and we hurt ourselves! There was a lot of blood. But it was a cool, good day.
The church was a different thing. It was an 11-hour day, we shot the same thing over and over again. But what we did was, we just had an idea of what the scene should do to the character — and the character originally just comes to the church, he didn't mean to make a riot or anything, a stand. The only stand he wanted to make was "I'm allowed to be here. I'm part of the community. I'm not going to be beaten by you guys." And then obviously when the choir starts to sing and everything, the emotion sets in and he can't control it. He stands up and makes a very embarrassing situation for everyone. But luckily, it also opens up people's eyes. So that's the second stand.
What we did [to film] was, we didn't exactly know when and how to do it and what I would be affected by. I said, "Listen, why don't we just do the scene? Why don't we just make them say what they do, I come in, and then just get the choir and if I feel like it, I will get up and confront my friends somehow. I don't know how and I don't now why and I don't know where it's going to end." So we didn't tell any of the other actors or any of the extras that this is going to happen, and nobody in the choir. So we did it. And it was actually me against a whole village, personally the first time we did it, which obviously creates a lot of tension between us and it's a very awkward situation to be in, even as an actor. And then we tried to copy that, take the best parts and sculpt it a little, but basically that was the fundamental foundation of the scene. And it was a long day, but it was a beautiful scene. It was a beautiful scene that he finally got to do this. We wanted him to be a little frustrated and it turned out that the song [Lucas sings along with the congregation] was so heartbreaking and [the situation] was so unfair for my character or me or whoever, I kind of cracked every time I was trying to sing it. That was beautiful, but we couldn't anticipate that that would happen. But we could copy it after we did it the first time. So it was of those classic try it and surprise the other actors. And after that, we tried to put it in the schedule.
What makes this movie so unique and so effective is that the audience never doubt Lucas' innocence. But, that's the complete opposite of what you're doing on Hannibal right now, where it's all about deception. How was it to go from one to the other?Well yeah, in many ways it's the same drawer — but also obviously not. What we've done with Hannibal, which is quite interesting, is that is he's full of empathy, as opposed to Will Graham... who's also full of empathy but he cannot control it at all, it's controlling him. I am totally in control of my empathy, meaning I will decide if I'm sad, I will decide if I'm happy. I will decide if I'm being influenced by music or if I'm angry. It's a totally controlled thing, but every time he goes with an emotion, he's honest with it. He's not a psychopath who momentarily believes it, he's very honest with it. He's an honest man — and he's not said one lie in the whole show. We made a big, big thing over that: I will not have one lie. Try to make him as honest as possible. So yes, there are similarities in the way I approach this as an actor, but there's obviously a tiny wink in the eye as Hannibal, which there is absolutely not in the character of Lucas. And the wink is very very small in Hannibal. I have read a couple places where they would like a much bigger wink, but we couldn't do that. Because obviously those two cops [played by Lawrence Fishburne and Caroline Dhavernas] would see it. If the audience sees it, they should see it. So, we can't go there.
Obviously — and I'm sure you get this question all the time — Hannibal Lecter is such an iconic character. But you've really made him your own. How do you feel about the audience's, and the critics', reaction to you in the role Anthony Hopkins made famous?I tried not to read too much in the beginning, because when people have reactions they have been mixed — and I understand why. You have Anthony Hopkins doing it to perfection, so you anticipate something down that alley. But at the same time, as a critic, you don't want it to be that alley, because you can't match it. I understand, it's a very thin blade for me and for the critics as well. The fact that people have thought, "He's not doing anything, he's not evil enough. He should be much more evil. What is happening?" You can't take that super serious — but I'm listening to it — because we can't go down that path, because he's not in prison, he's right in the face of people. He has to have friends and so he has to be humanized. In all his private moments, we see who he is.
But I hear it and I understand that frustration, but we have been there ourselves and we had to make the decision that we couldn't go down that path. So if people embrace what we're doing and they like it, we're happy with that. Of course we could've done something else, but I don't think [audiences] would've bought it the same way. I'm super happy that a lot of people like it. There were big shoes to fill and the only reason why we could get a yes — and I think that Brian wanted to do it — was that if he's a different Hannibal. He's still Hannibal, he's just outside the prison, so he's bound to be a different person.
So now, going into Season 2, we have a different dynamic between Hannibal and Will Graham. What would you like to see happen?I'm curious about whether the Will character is going to be out in the open that he knows and I know. If that's the case, it's one thing. But if Will's still confused, it's a different thing. Oh, even more interesting! If Will plays that he doesn't know, he's conning me now. If he's doing that, that's going to be interesting — that he's playing the game on me now. That's going to be very interesting, seeing what path they want to go down. I kind of like that last one that he's going to play me as well. But, I will be surprised if I didn't know.
Well, Hannibal seems to always know everything.He is such an annoying guy! He knows everything about the human nature, the fruits, anything about the food, any kind of music, instruments from the last millennium… He's really annoying in that sense. He's also a psychiatrist who doesn't necessarily want to hear his clients talk, which is rare. He likes to talk himself.
The show is so stylized, between the graphics, the mood, and even the suits you wear. Does it add an extra layer for you to step into those costumes?
It does. We obviously have to remember that the Hannibal character — not only in all the films, but also in all the books — he is extremely elaborate. He's a three-piece suit man in love with language — he's not from England, he's from Lithuania, which is good. Good for us, but that doesn't mean he doesn't love the English language. Obviously he would find American banal [if he did]. For him, he's either going to eat it or he doesn't want to hear about it. We now know that a man in a three-piece suit, if he collects art and listens to opera, he's definitely a killer. You know that. We didn't know that in the '80s, that was definitely something that happened in those days, so it's still there. We have to do [the wardrobe and stylization] because it's in the books. He is a different kind of person than the other guys. Even more so, I have to be even more trustworthy as much as I can. If I was so weird all the time, I mean, we couldn't get away with one episode. I'm just weird enough.
Going back to The Hunt again for a minute. The end of the movie is a bit ambiguous, but I walked away thinking that Lucas is always going to live in fear, always going to be persecuted. And I was wondering if that's what you were trying to portray. And just generally, what were you hoping audiences would leave with?It's definitely what we were trying to portray. We did not want to put a face or a person on [the hunter], we even wanted to leave it maybe in his imagination. The scene that most pointed at this ambiguity is when my son is getting the rifle. That's the only scene in the film where Thomas' approach is a little stylistic, in the sense that everything I see [in the scene] is realistic, then I look at all my friends and see that they are all standing, looking at me. And that is stylistic. That is definitely something that [Lucas] feels. They are not staring at me, looking at me. But I see these people that I once loved and who once loved me and I can't read their faces. I have no idea what they are going to feel about me tomorrow. And for that reason, the end was really that I cannot stay here, it's never going to be the same.

From Our PartnersStars Pose Naked for 'Allure' (Celebuzz)20 Grisliest TV Deaths of 2012-2013 (Vulture)
As patriotic as it is to get decked out in red, white and blue over this flag-waving Independence Day weekend, we know there's only one color you actually care about: red. Red as in blood. As in vampire blood. As in the vampire blood that drenches your TV screen as you watch True Blood. Yeah, you get it.
Well, last night's episode "At Last" had a whole lot of blood to go around: fairy blood, vampire blood, human blood — you name the blood type, True Blood has the perfect match for you. Now that your heart's pumping perfectly, let's immerse ourselves in the bloody details from this week's fang-bearing and fairy-blasting episode.
What the Hell is He?After last week's mess left Jason injured, he barely has a pulse and is in serious need of vampire blood. All of a sudden Ben whips out fangs and feeds Jason his blood – wait, what?! Fairies don't have fangs... But whatever, at least he saves Jason's life. We wouldn't be okay without that handsome blonde dumbo gracing our screens every sunday. Am I right or am I right?
Seize Them!Grandpop Niall and Nora trade secrets about Warlow and Lilith and we learn that Warlow is the only one that can kill Lilith. Niall ain't got no time for gossip and fairy-blasts Nora, who then gets seized by the governor's guards. But Nora's not the only one: after Pam and Tara bicker over where to feed, Pam too gets shot down. Oh snap! Off to camp they go...
Sexy Shifter SamWith the werewolves on his horsetail — literally, Sam shifts into a horse — with Lafayette's help, Sam rescues Emma and drags injured Nicole to safety. Later, Nicole and Sam bond over how s***ty it is to lose people you love... which just makes them want some lovin' and they start kissing. Bom chicka wah wah!
C**k block by Day, Vampire by NightDespite Pam's possessiveness, Eric still manages to squeeze out of Tara where she hid Willa. Although Willa's had more than her fair shot to escape from Eric's custody, she stayed put to chat with the statuesque vamper about how she's on his side of her father's fight. And soon enough, too-sexy-for-his-shirt Eric and virgin Willa hop underground to turn Willa into a vampire. Oh yeah, they kinkily both feed off each other, too. It's pretty hot, not going to lie. Willa's all ready to f**k and hunt as a new-born vampire, but Eric has other plans: he sends his second progeny back to her father so he's forced to face his daughter as a vampire.
AS Sarah Newlin starts seducing Governor Burrell the ultimate c**k block arrives: Willa in all her vampire glory shows up and tells Daddy to stop all his anti-vampire plans if he still loves her, even with her new cold flesh and fangs. Right when the Governor shows a tad of sympathy, Willa jumps to bite him, which compels Sarah to shoot Willa and order Burrell to send his now-dead daughter off to camp. Gah!
Bill's Party (Come And Get It)After, Andy Bellfleur's fairy daughters snoop around Terry's head and torment him for killing Patrick, the fairy foursome sprout into trouble-seeking teens – they even steal daddy's sherif mobile and zoom off to grab some beer... but of course they have no IDs. No big! Jessica barges in and glamours the clerk to sell the girlies some brew. Jessica even invites the chicks over for a party at ole Bill's mansion.
Bill seduces the fairy sisters into giving him a vial of their magical blood, which Bill then hands over to his new captive, Professor Takahashi, to synthesize. The four girls get testy and want to go home from Bill's not so poppin' party after they get spooked out about him drawing their blood. Jessica sweetly tries to convince them to stay, but when her gentle words don't have enough bite she literally bites 'em instead — and accidentally ends up killing them all. Well done, Jessica. Well done.
Wet DreamsWith Ben's blood in his veins, Jason starts having wet dreams about the mysterious vamp. As Jason worries about his gay dreamy visions of Ben, Grandpa Niall reads his mind and determines Ben is a fairy-vampire. Aha!
Jason and Niall go to Ben's place to shoot him down but they got nothing on this fairy-vamper, who blasts Niall and glamours Jason to forget he ever came over and to bid farewell to Grandpa. After force-feeding Grandpa Niall his blood, Ben gains a british accent and throws him off into a portal. Behold: Ben is actually Warlow. But hey, at least he has great arms!
At LastAfter Ben sloppily left behind a droplet of his vampire blood, clever Sookie uncovers the dead truth that he's not just your average fairy-dude. Yet, she invites Ben over for dinner. Romantic, eh? Well, not so much considering how she sprinkles silver on his fried chicken. Sookie tries to get Ben to come clean about his vampireness, but he instead just goes on some bulls**t rant about how she gets him. With "At Last" blaring in the background, Sookie and Ben start making out and dry humping right before Sookie powers up her lethal fairy ball and threatens, "Get the f**k off me or die, Warlow." Sookie, you are one badass chick.

The shark attack victim whose uplifting story inspired the movie Soul Surfer has opened up about her wedding day dreams while posing for a bridal feature in the new issue of In Touch magazine. Bethany Hamilton, 23, lost her left arm and 60 per cent of the blood in her body when she was attacked by a tiger shark off the coast of Kauai, Hawaii in 2003.
Her brave story of survival and her return to surfing became a bestseller that was adapted for the big screen.
Earlier this year (13), Hamilton revealed she was engaged to Christian youth minister Adam Dirks, 25, and now it appears the wedding is at the top of her priority list.
In Touch caught the bride-to-be trying on gowns at New York's Mark Ingram store and she tells the publication, "I feel like a princess!"
And she opens up about her dreams of getting married, admitting she had to put her faith in God that she would find someone special: "I always felt it would be hard for me to meet someone because I'm different. To say I was completely comfortable looking at myself in the mirror and seeing one arm would be a lie. I just had to trust in God and know that he had someone special for me."
Hamilton met her husband-to-be on a blind date set up by mutual friends. The couple will wed later this summer (13).
Actress Tara Reid has branded Perez Hilton a "bully" after the gossip blogger claimed her teetotal boyfriend had been drinking. The American Pie star and her musician partner Erez Eisen were spotted partying in Las Vegas over the weekend (21-23Jun13), prompting Hilton to publish photographs of the pair on his website, alleging they were drunk.
However, Reid was offended by the allegations as Eisen does not drink alcohol, and she has taken aim at the blogger in a lengthy rant on her Twitter.com page.
In a series of posts, she writes, "My boyfriend doesn't even drink so stop saying things that are so untrue and mean. Why can't you just be happy 4 (for) me... u r (you are) a bully! Why do u (sic) keep on saying bad things about me?! Enough is enough why can't you just be happy for me? You are such a mean bad human. It's time for me to stop letting Perez Hilton bully me lie (sic) and hate!"

This week on The Bachelorette, the emotions were running high, as the group dates are still highly competitive and many of the men grapple to get some precious time with Desiree to tell her about their son/dying father/junkie mom. If you missed it, here are my top five moments from last night’s journey.
5. Juan Pablo May Be Venezuelan, But He Definitely Knows How to French
While the other boys were splitting their pants (poor Dan) on the Old West group date, Juan Pablo was using his foreign tongue to woo Desiree. She chose him as the winner of the cowboy challenge, and what romantic alone time awaited them? Watching The Lone Ranger in a barn, of course! It's the dream date women always fantasize about... Uh, what?
Nevertheless, Juan Pablo used his time wisely and went in for a sexy, popcorny kiss. (Isn’t it interesting how you can tell which guys are good kissers and which guys have only kissed blow-up dolls? Juan Pablo, from my detailed, DVR-enhanced analysis, knows how to smooch.)
4. Is Brooks This Season’s Tierra?
On the only slightly less violent dodgeball group date, Brooks proved his love for Desiree by snapping his finger in half. For a second there, I wondered if Brooks would become this season’s Tierra, drawing Desiree away from the group by faking injuries. If that was his plan, he didn’t account for the fact that Desiree was a firsthand witness to Tierra’s antics. In fact, she just kind of gave him a pat on the back and left him to go to the ER by himself. Buck up, fellas, Desiree is here to play the field, not nurse your wounds. Side note: how obviously doped up was Brooks when he returned to the party?
3. Ben’s Secret Dating Life
After surreptitiously taking Desiree for a 15-minute car ride, Ben was caught once again lying to the other guys. He denied having any alone time with her — but when confronted by Mikey T. and Michael G., he defended himself by saying, "My dating life is not public." You know what, he’s got a point! These guys should be ashamed for even discussing a private matter that's only between Ben, Desiree, and millions of Americans. Have some respect, fellas.
2. Brandon Is All Out of Tears
Poor Brandon. He just feels too much. Last night, the incident with Brian triggered some really painful memories of his mom’s active dating life. And naturally, this inspired him to tell Desiree that he is falling in love. Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa! This is Bachelorette 101, Brandon. Do not tell her you’re falling in love until you’re on the fantasy suite date — or, at the very earliest, the hometown visit. You fool! This was the nail in his coffin. When she let him go, he was shocked. Oh God, the look on his face. You could tell in that moment he’d already named their children. And then, I believe we may have witnessed the most depressing exit interview in Bachelorette history: "Once again, someone left me. Once again. Way to go Brandon." And then... "I'm not going to cry..."
"I'm just out of tears."
1. Oh Geez
The most hilarious scene from last night's episode began when Desiree's intense journaling was interrupted by a phone call from Chris Harrison. A phone call? Never a good sign. It turns out, one of the bachelors is... Oh God no... How can it be... HERE FOR THE WRONG REASONS!!! (Cue ominous organ music, shrieks of terror, the sound of a million candlescapes snuffed out.) Who is this louse? It's... drum roll... Brian! Who? Dang. It's not one of the guys the show has been focusing on. Just some random v-neck in the crowd.
But what terrible lie has Brian told? He has a girlfriend! And she is at the bachelor mansion! Oh it's on. Her name is Stephanie, and she is gonna let this guy have it. By this point, Desiree has pulled Brian aside to confront him, and when Stephanie appears, his reaction is hilarious. He simply says, "Oh geez."
Now, let me preface this by saying, I do not condone bumping bellies with someone two days before coming on The Bachelorette. But did anyone detect a sliiiiight amount of crazy coming from Stephanie? Chris Harrison kept telling her to stop talking, but she wasn't having it. This was her day to shine. And let’s be honest, "Oh geez" is something you mutter when your crazy drunk aunt shows up at Christmas.
Desiree, quite shaken from these events*, continued on her journey. In summary, there is much more drama to be had, and, interestingly, I think we saw soft-spoken Chris become a sneak-attack frontrunner this episode. I’m now rooting for him to make it to the end, but not be chosen, so I can possibly date him on the next season when he becomes The Bachelor.
*By "shaken" I mean, "totally unfazed."
