Justin Bieber's going country

Yikes! Was that the sound of a million, screaming tween girls recoiling in horror?

Don't worry fans, Justin Bieber isn't planning on ditching his hip-hop bling for cowboy boots any time soon. But the teen sensation is teaming up with country music group Rascal Flatts to record a duet in 2011 - and it was Biebs' idea.

"[Justin] asked us to do a duet with him on his next record," Rascal Flatts lead singer Gary LeVox told WSIX. "It's actually a really good song!"

Arquette: I was joking about that breakdown thing

Remember when everyone was worried about David Arquette having a nervous breakdown? Yeah, he was just joking when he said that.

In fact, the same applies to another little tidbit that's been making its rounds: it turns out Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey won't be marrying in Italy.

Arquette and Minnillo have both spoken up about their respective reports, clarifying that neither statement made was meant to be taken seriously.

Weeklies cheat sheet: Reality TV is the new celebrity

Did you forget that reality TV stars are like, the thing to care about? You did? Well, thank goodness this week’s celebrity weekly round-up is here to remind you!

In a week where celebrity couple after celebrity couple – and by that we mean two individuals that get paid to practice the craft of acting, singing, what have you – ended their relationships, apparently the only thing that’ll sell these mags is news about “Teen Moms” and “Kardashians.”

If the story of Gwyneth Paltrow’s rehabilitating, country-singing character in “Country Strong” winds up reminding you of anyone, it’ll probably be Britney Spears.

The movie’s writer-director, Shana Feste, told the Los Angeles Times that the love-hate relationship between major stars and the media is what inspired her to create Paltrow’s Kelly Canter, a singer who’s fallen from grace.

"That's where this movie came from. I mean, I was seeing what was happening in the media to Britney Spears," she told the paper.
