Bieber takes over Staples Center for date night

In a move that will have tween girls swooning, Justin Bieber's rep confirms to CNN that the pop star did, in fact, arrange for a private screening of "Titanic" at the Staples Center for himself and Selena Gomez Friday night.

Will the romance never end?

On Friday, the teen couple attended pal Demi Lovato's show at the Nokia Theater LA Live. After the show, J. Biebs, 17, pulled out all the stops. The singer surprised girlfriend Selena, 18, with an elaborate movie night, taking her to the Staples Center across the street by way of an underground tunnel.

The young lovebirds shared a dinner for two on the floor of the empty 20,000 seat arena, and followed that up with a private screening of "Titanic."

It's not confirmed whether the romantic Mr. Biebs was inspired by Adam Sandler's movie, "Mr. Deeds" (Sandler takes Winona Ryder on a date to Madison Square Garden).

TMZ reports that the Staples Center let Bieber use the arena free of charge, as a thanks for his recent sold-out concerts at the venue.

"Romance isn't dead," Biebs tweeted that night. "Treat your lady right fellas."

    He is prettier than she is! What's up with that! I am thinking he and Ricki Martin are going to hook up and there will be this HUGE uproar from Hollywood that Ricki is porking a little boy/girl/what!

    Bieber and Selena had the last laugh because they didn't have to deal with any of you. It was very romantic and sweet. Sounds like the type of date a young Christian boy and his girlfriend call perfect. Go Bieber, be the example to others

  14. Typical JB Fans

    None of these "haters" are jealous of Justin Bieber and his money... if you think money is ALL THAT then you need to check yourselves... there are plenty of people working jobs who are making money that are blasting this kid for his 15 minutes of fame...

    Why would we be jealous? Jealous of him sacrificing his true talents to sell himself out to the masses? No thanks... I'll keep my morals... I know this kid is talented but he's just wasting it away doing the typical pop scene... not to mention he's also quite arrogant.

    You sheep will eat everything up these days... it's no wonder this country is going downhill... when you have Katy Perry and Justin Bieber doing well...

    ...cut to 20 years later...Justin is stumbling around drunk during a DUI stop babbling incoherently about his glory days when he ruled the world. No, wait, that's David Cassidy! Does anyone else this this little kid is another Partridge clone? In five years, he will be as relevant as Donny Osmond. Who cares? All this media hype cannot hide the fact he is a pretty-boy product, nothing more. Talented? Yeah, somewhat, but after he gets his pubic hair, the little girls will be creeped out by him, just like all other teen idols. How many grown women still think Leif Garrett is cute?

How about cleaning her house when she's sick, how bout rubbing her feet after a long day, how bout cooking dinner for her. What a pompous little ass...if you want to be romantic, advertising your stupidity by overpaying to flaunt your wealth ain't the way to do it.

I have a problem with people being famous for being famous (Paris Hilton, Tila Tequila, Kardashians) he is not one of those. But his fame is blown way out of proportion, He is talented, but there are FAR more talented people who should be brought to attention. Real talent. I also hate teeny boppers, so that may have something to do with this. They are loud, obnoxious, annoying and clearly have no clue what talent is.

      I agree. This is what the American society has become. Namecalling everyone, accusing everyone of being gay or pervert or pedophile, challenging everyone and putting them down at every chance is a part of daily life of an American. Paranoia and ugly personalities took over, nobody simply enjoys life and treats eachother well anymore, it's fake if they act like they do and backtalking will follow. At the same time, nobody knows better, they can't compare to other nations, so they think that it's all ok and attack you if you attempt to criticize them. Very sad.
