#Trending In Entertainment: Bieber On Probation, Emmy Nominations, and Star Wars Delays
This week a teen heartthrob isn’t above the law, Emmy nominations were announced, and something happened in a galaxy far, far away.
It seems that even a pop music heartthrob isn’t above the law as Justin Bieber was charged with vandalism this week. The Canadian crooner pleaded no contest to an act of vandalism on Jan. 9 that left his former neighbor’s house egged and caused around $20,000 in damage to the property. He was sentenced to two years’ probation.
Bieber, 20, was not present at the sentence hearing, instead sending his attorney Shawn Holley, who also represented Lindsay Lohan in the past. As part of his sentence, Bieber will also have to pay $80,900 in restitution, $350 in fines, perform five days of community labor and attend a 12-week anger-management program.
“Game of Thrones” seems to be sitting pretty high after receiving a whopping 19 Emmy nominations, followed by “Fargo” with 18 nods and “American Horror Story: Coven” with 17. CBS made it out with 47 Emmy nominations for everything from “The Big Bang Theory” to “The Amazing Race” and “Undercover Boss.”
Only time will tell who walks away with the highly-coveted Emmy statuette. Who do you think should win?
Even The Force can’t keep production from being delayed on the set of the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII.” This week, Disney announced that production of the sci-fi adventure will be delayed because of Harrison Ford’s recent injury. The 71-year-old star broke his leg last month after a door of the Millennium Falcon fell on his leg during filming.
The franchise is also adding two new faces to the galaxy, casting new comers Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke in the film. The two auditioned during open casting calls and now join other cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver and others.
The hottest werewolf in town sat down to talk with The CW, and sadly it wasn’t about the devastating death of Alcide on “True Blood” this week. No, unfortunately we won’t know much more about the Alcide death, but Magnaniello already seems to have other endeavors lined up besides “True Blood” (and no, we’re not talking about Sofia Vergara). The “Magic Mike” actor sat down with his brother Nick and gave us a glimpse at their directional debut film,” La Bare.”
The film introduces its audience to the world of male stripping at the famous La Bare Dallas, a place filled with men that live a rock n’ roll lifestyles while entertaining their audience. All you had to say was “Magic Mike” and strip club. The rest sells itself.
Icons…they’re just like us!
This week, the one-and-only Madonna reported for jury duty in Manhattan, and while the material girl obeyed the law and showed up, she was 30 minutes late and left the courthouse after only an hour and half. The reason for her brief appearance? Court system spokesman David Bookstaver said officials cut her loose early because there were plenty of prospective jurors for the day’s needs and because her presence may have caused a bit of a problem in the jury selection process.
