Justin Bieber got zero Grammy nods this year — nada, zip, nuttin’.
Could it be that the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has finally figured out that high album sales doesn’t necessarily translate to good music? (Maybe not, because it still nominated Maroon 5.)
Anyhoo, Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, is pissed. “I just plain DISAGREE,” he tweeted. “The kid deserved it. Grammy board U blew it on this one.”
Braun has been working hard to move his wunderkind from pin-up tween sensation to a man whom grown women want to sleep with, even surrounding him with Victoria’s Secret models this week (that did nothing but make him look like he had some hot baby-sitters). Braun knows that a Grammy could further legitimize J-Bib and keep that money train a-rollin’ past prepubescence. But, alas, it is not to be.
Ariel Winter’s mom Chrystal Workman wanted to leak nude pics of daughter
Just when you thought that “Modern Family” star Ariel Winter’s mom couldn’t get any sleazier, now it seems that she attempted to release nude pics of her elder daughter, Shanelle Workman-Gray, in an attempt to screw up the sister’s guardianship of the young star.
Workman-Gray was granted temporary guardianship by a judge after abuse accusations against her mother, Chrystal Workman, emerged this fall. A publicist told TMZ that Workman has repeatedly contacted him and wants the racy pics leaked to the media. Shame shame, everyone knows your name! The case goes back to court Dec. 10.
MTV attempts to re-create “Jersey Shore” magic with “Buckwild”
Have you been wondering how you will fill the empty hole in your life that was previously occupied by “Jersey Shore?”
Fear not, because MTV has created a new reality show that combines the best of Team Meatball with the family from Honey Boo Boo.
“Buckwild” debuts next month and will take place in West Virginia. It follows a ragtag bunch of self-described “redneck” scamps whose fuedin’, frettin’ and fornicatin’ make for a ho-down of visual and aural stimulation in the wilds of Appalachia. Yeehawww.
