- Justin Bieber tried to talk some sense into the extremist wing of his fanbase yesterday after a mob of fans swarmed him in a New Zealand airport, knocking down his mother and stealing his hat. The tween star tweeted yesterday, "Finally got to New Zealand last night. The airport was crazy. Not happy that someone stole my hat and knocked down my mama. Come on people... I want to be able to sign and take pics and meet my fans, but if you are all pushing security wont let me. let's keep it safe and have fun." Earlier this week, a similar ruckus in Australia-- involving 5000 girls, injuries, and multiple faintings-- caused police to cancel the 16-year old's concert in Sydney.

- Bono will receive top honors tonight at the Atlantic Council’s annual leadership awards dinner at the Ritz Carlton in Foggy Bottom. The U2 singer and co-founder of the ONE foundation Campaign will be recognized alongside some very un-Bono types including Deutsche Bank chief executive Dr. Josef Ackermann, French Air Force General Stéphane Abrial and U.S. Marine Corps General James Mattis.
