MARIJUANA & TASER FOUND ON BIEBER TOUR BUS
Cops in Sweden say they found a controlled substance and a stun gun on Justin Bieber’s tour bus Wednesday. A rep for the Stockholm police department says cops smelled weed coming from the bus, which was parked in front of a hotel. It then headed toward the Globe Arena where Justin was performing. After getting a warrant, officers searched the vehicle and found a small amount of weed and a taser, but since no one was on the bus at the time, they had no idea who the items belonged to and no one was arrested. “We are in no way saying that the drugs belonged to the artist in question,” said a police spokesperson. “There were ten people on board and it could have belonged to anyone.”
JUSTIN LATE & BRATTY FOR PHOTO SHOOT
Meanwhile, Justin Bieber’s bratty behavior doesn’t seem to be letting up. Radaronline reports the 19-year-old was six hours late for a photo shoot for cosmetics giant Elizabeth Arden, and when he did arrive he threw a tantrum. Apparently they wanted him to wear a “bell boy hat” and he refused. Said a source, “This kid is quickly getting a reputation as someone that no one wants to work with. It was disgraceful.” A rep for Bieber told Gossip Cop the story is “b.s.,” adding that the pop star was “on time” and it was a “great shoot.”
GWYNETH SAYS SHE’S NOT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL
A lot of people don’t believe Gwyneth Paltrow deserves People’s World’s Most Beautiful Woman title, and apparently Gwyneth is one of them. "It's funny, these things, because it's like obviously not true. But it's very sweet to be named that," Paltrow said at the Iron Man 3 premiere Wednesday. "Because I mean you can't say that, you know! But it's been wonderful. It's been very wonderful. And as my friend said, it's so nice that someone who has kids and is a mom and is not like 21 is named that. It's really an honor." Gwyneth’s Iron Man co-stars apparently agree with the choice. “Completely justified,” said Guy Pearce. “She’s gorgeous.” Added Ben Kingsley, “She is gracious and beautiful inside as she is outside. She’s got a good heart…A lovely girl.”
