pop megastar Justin Bieber might host a rebooted version of MTV’s hoax show Punk’d did not surprise me one jot. I have long suspected his entire career to be an elaborate practical joke being played on America by Ashton Kutcher. How else, after all, to explain Mr Bieber’s unfeasible success? Or, for that matter, his hair?The news that
Here’s my theory: On the first episode of the new Punk’d, Kutcher will reveal that “Bieber” is really a fictional character who, for the past two years has been “played” by Bruce Willis. The Kutch and Bruce are always talking about how well they get along, and we know the Die Hard star enjoys a good laugh. Hell, just this week he demonstrated his willingness to wear a meat wig in the name of comedy. Sporting a “Justin Bieber” toupee wouldn’t be that much more embarrassing.
Kutcher will then pay a visit to every person in the country and declare “You got Punk’d!” Oh, will we have egg on our faces!
Yep. never mind I’m Still Here. I’m saying Kutcher has pulled off the media stunt of the century. Do you agree?

T.I.: Album in limbo as court issues summons
Crimson-haired songstress Florence Welch (who is, essentially, Florence and the Machine) stunned an audience fed on frantic dance moves, endemic lip-synching, and ersatz drama—simply by singing the crap out of a genuinely great song.
EW caught up with the 24-year-old Londoner and 2009 EW Year-End Albums topper late last week, while she was still anticipating last night’s performance, and spoke to her about gearing up for the show, getting to know Lady Gaga, and who she was most likely to fan out on backstage.
FW: Yeah, they do run them here on MTV, for sure.
EW: So you know the show is famous for crazy incidents—Eminem fighting with the sock puppet, the guy from Rage Against the Machine falling off a statue onstage, Prince in his buttless pants…
FW: Oh yes, the buttless pants! The Brits are really my only experience with awards, and the VMAs are such an iconic event. Just yesterday, I was walking around [London's] Soho in a dress that cost me one pound and has a hole in it, and then later I was laying on the living-room floor with my sister and this advert came on for the VMAs, this huge spectacle with explosions and all these massive artists and I was like “Oh my god, I’m doing that? Are you sure?” People in south London laying on their living-room floors aren’t supposed to be the people who do that. It just seems so surreal to me that I was laying there watching an advert for a thing I’m actually scheduled to be performing at.
EW: Are you planning to match that level of spectacle?
FW: I think it’s going to be something quite big, not something we’d be able to do at any other event.
EW: So that means you’ve been learning arial acrobatics, like Pink?
FW: Yes, absolutely. While doing jump rope upside down [laughs].
EW: tell me how this year has been for you, it seems like in America at least, it’s been a pretty slow, steady build… READ FULL STORY
The most-nominated Lady of the VMAs — that is, Lady Gaga — has already made her first (of potentially many, if history is any indication) fashion statements of the night. She arrived on the white carpet in a feathery gold headdress, flowing platinum locks, and a very autumnal gold, green, and orange gown with a pumpkin-ish pouf at the bottom — a creation of the late Alexander McQueen (who committed suicide in February). Then, well, there are the McQueen armadillo shoes, which still defy words, even after seeing the similar ones she wore in the “Bad Romance” video. A little more of a nature-bound look than we’re used to from the otherworldly Gaga, but, of course, she does like to keep things fresh and current — so why not nod to the changing seasons?
What did you think of Gaga’s arrivals getup, Music Mixers?
