Bieber crashes Johnny Depp's press conference

We're not sure what Johnny Depp has to say about Esperanza Spalding, but we do know he's definitely a Justin Bieber fan.

The actor revealed his fondness for the teen idol when Bieber crashed Depp's movie junket this weekend, reports Deadline.com.

In a video on the site, Depp and his "Rango" co-stars are seen promoting their film at a press event at the Four Seasons Hotel on Saturday when Bieber suddenly appears at the back of the room and begins flashing the peace sign.

Grammys memoriam: Where was Guru?

Grammys memoriam: Where was Guru?

It seems that with every one of these award shows, at least one deceased star is noticeably absent during the "In Memoriam" tribute.

Farrah Fawcett was famously missing from the Academy Awards tribute last year, and this year's SAG awards left out Corey Haim (a subsequent statement explained that Haim had been included in a longer version of the tribute segment, but that a shorter version was used due to time constraints). At Sunday's Grammys, hip hop artist Guru (born Keith Elam) wasn’t included in the memorial round-up.

Guru's absence didn't go unnoticed, particularly by fellow artists. Q-Tip tweeted, "No mention of keith GURU elam?????? Come on," with Kanye West writing “RIP to Guru!!” during the Grammys broadcast. Questlove of the Roots recalled the omission of the late Dave Matthews Band saxophonist LeRoi Moore, asking, "Wait a minute, did they just dave mathews band Guru? In that tribute? Shame on you #grammys2011. Did I miss his passing?"

James Franco records a song (Yes, this guy again)

We should have seen this one coming. Following CNN's report about James Franco being everywhere, the Oscar nominee/host is now adding "singer" to his already lengthy résumé.

Vulture reports that Franco and his performance artist partner Kalup Linzy are working on a CD, and one of their recordings — the funky "I Love You," which appears to be a duet between the men — was played during designer Cynthia Rowley's Fashion Week runway show on Friday. (Listen to the song here.)

“I was surprised by the song they picked. I sent in three songs and the song that they chose was, like, the last one that I had sent,” Linzy tells Vulture. “But I liked the way it was put into the mix.”

Barbra Streisand explains 'Glee' dis

Although Barbra Streisand recently made something of a jab at Fox's hit series "Glee," Lea Michele for one isn't singing the blues.

The misunderstanding began on Friday, when at the Grammy's MusiCares tribute event in her honor, Streisand was asked if she would ever do a cameo on "Glee." According to the Hollywood Reporter, she replied, "Not if I can help it."

Since then, however, Streisand has changed her tune and is apologizing for her remark.

‘Top Chef's’ Fabio: 'Jersey Shore' in Italy is a recipe for disaster

Fabio Viviani was eliminated on last week’s episode of “Top Chef,” but the fan favorite isn’t done with reality TV just yet.

In an interview with xfinityTV.com, Viviani weighed in on the "Jersey Shore" cast heading to his native Italy for the 4th season of the show, and he made some dire predictions.

“They won’t make it out alive,” Viviani joked. “Maybe a couple of them are coming back, but most of them – they gonna chop them up and put them in a stew.”

Aretha Franklin loved Grammys tribute

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin is moonlighting as Queen of the fashion police for CNN.

As the Grammy Awards geared up to honor the soul singer with a special performance, Franklin was keeping an eye on the red carpet fashion and eagerly anticipating the tribute from the comfort of her home.

"A friend of mine... made me a banana pudding and I was sitting right in front of my flat screen watching everything and loving it," Franklin said of the tribute, which had Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine and gospel singer Yolanda Adams take on a medley of Franklin's hits.
