Bieber launches unisex fragrance

Talk about the sweet smell of success! With hit records, a book, a doll line and a nail polish collection already under his belt, teen idol Justin Bieber is now set to launch his first unisex fragrance called My World.

WWD reports that the My World Collection will consist of scent-infused wristbands and dog tags available in designs such as Icon, Energy, Tour and Web. Sixteen-year-old Bieber tells the paper he was actively involved in developing the product.

“They actually brought me a bunch of stuff to smell today,” says the mop-topped star. “One of them smelled too young, too fruity. One was really good.”

Mark Wahlberg to share screen time with teddy bear

If you thought Mark Wahlberg's "The Other Guys" co-star Will Ferrell was quirky, just wait till you see "Ted," an upcoming comedy in which Wahlberg, 39, shares the screen with a teddy bear come to life.

Deadline.com reports that "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane will make his directorial debut with the flick, which tells the story of a Boston man (Wahlberg) who, as a boy, wishes that his teddy bear could become real. It does, and the duo remain best friends throughout adulthood. Unfortunately, the bear grows up to be a carousing slacker who wreaks havoc on Wahlberg's personal and love life.

According to Deadline.com, the bad-boy bear will be computer generated, with 37-year-old MacFarlane – who portrays Peter, Brian and Stewie Griffin on "Family Guy" – lending his voice to the character.

Plus-sized article spurs heavy debate

Before you even ask, yes I am plus-sized.

That’s germane because I am anticipating the comments given the massive discussion an article I wrote has generated.

It all started so innocently with me and some colleagues discussing the new show “Mike & Molly” which stars a pair of overweight actors and why when characters are big it’s such a huge deal.

So I did some reporting and wrote a piece titled “Weight is a big deal for TV, movie characters.” I steeled myself for the comments. It wasn’t the first time that I had weighed in on an issue dealing with overweight people and I knew that readers could be brutal.

How much of a 'time warp' will there be on 'Glee'?

How much of a 'time warp' will there be on 'Glee'?

[Editor's Note: If you're extra sensitive to spoilers, stop reading now.]

What will happen when a cult classic collides with a part of the zeitgeist?

Viewers will find out on Tuesday night when “Glee” takes on the “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” as a theme. Gleeks are all abuzz about the episode, timed to make the most of the Halloween season.

So how, exactly, is that going to work given the risqué content of “Rocky Horror”? Not that “Glee” hasn’t been known to push the boundaries a bit (like having two female cheerleading characters in bed exchanging “sweet lady kisses,” or having another student get caught pleasuring himself), but the film classic is a bit more out there.

Matthew McConaughey in a gorilla costume says it all

We always knew Matthew McConaughey had a bit of crazy in him – after all he was arrested in 1999 for reportedly disturbing the peace by playing bongo drums… naked. But his latest venture into the music industry has us g-ape-ing.

McConaughey directs and stars in country singer Jamey Johnson’s new music video, “Playing the Part.” In the seven minute clip, the actor leads us through the streets of Los Angeles dressed in a gorilla costume.

The song is from Johnson’s new album, "The Guitar Song," which released in September. Johnson and McConaughey are good friends – the singer performed at McConaughey’s 40th birthday party – and Johnson asked the actor if he’d want to help him with the video.

Michael Jackson tops list of richest dead celebs

He may be gone, but he's not forgotten. In fact, Michael Jackson has brought in so much bank since his June 2009 passing that he's landed the No. 1 spot on Forbes's Top-Earning Dead Celebrities List.

According to Forbes, Jackson's estate has brought in a whopping $275 million over the past 12 months – more than the combined earnings of superstars Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Madonna, and more than any living artist or group, for that matter.

"[Jackson's] kids are going to have grandkids before that money's gone," estate lawyer Donald David, who handled Tupac Shakur's finances, tells the magazine.
