"Why don't you go take some more selfies.""I'm doing it for Kanye, someone that I love," Kim responded.And now, for all her fans too!

Justin Bieber to Be Subject of Comedy Central Roast

Allen Berezovsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Justin Bieber's been providing comedians and talk show hosts with fodder for jokes for several years, but now it's going to be organized: The Bieb will be the subject of the next Comedy Central Roast.In a statement Tuesday, Comedy Central executive Ken Alterman said that the roast was Bieber's idea, and added, "We just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened.”Bieber reiterated that in a tweet, writing, "For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard."

"Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening," he added.

The roast will be taped in Los Angeles. Comedy Central has not confirmed a taping date, nor an airdate, but if it's happening on Bieber's 21st birthday, that means it will be March 1.

Bieber has already shown he has a sense of humor about himself, starring in videos for Funny or Die, appearing in sketches on Saturday Night Live, and laughing, via Twitter, at SNL's parody this past weekend of his Calvin Klein ads.

Rob Lowe Shares His ‘Secrets to Staying Young’

Valerie Macon/Getty Images(BURBANK, Calif.) -- Rob Lowe really doesn't age.The 50-year-old West Wing star stopped by Conan Monday night and the show's host Conan O'Brien pointed out the fact that in the last two decades, the actor really hasn't aged "at all.""It's spooky," O'Brien said."I'm aging on the inside Conan," Lowe answered.Lowe then divulged his secrets, joking he is drinking the blood of the undead."I take very good care of myself," he said. "I don't drink. I work out a lot. I've learned some tricks over the years."Some tricks include finding ways other than alcohol to let "the wild man out.""So, it's skiing, surfing and doing adrenaline stuff," Lowe added.The Wayne's World star said he tried golf but he gave it up because he killed the Iowa state bird in flight."Boink in the air, dead, into the [sand] trap," he said. "It's not like Randy Johnson the pitcher who killed a seagull [with a baseball, by accident], it's a finch [which is tiny]."Lowe said the odds of that happening are 1 in 747 million, so "I'm quitting after that, that's a sign -- a real birdie!"

“The Bachelor” Recap: Jimmy Kimmel Serves as Guest

“The Bachelor” Recap: Jimmy Kimmel Serves as Guest

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Jimmy Kimmel brought his comedic talents to primetime Monday night, guest-hosting a new episode of The Bachelor on ABC. The late-night host organized dates, tested the women in ways they hadn't been tested before, and, of course, cracked lots of jokes.Upon his arrival to the mansion, Kimmel quipped that he would help Chris Soules make a decision on all the ladies by sleeping with them.Kimmel also introduced what he called the "amazing jar." He pointed out that the word "amazing" is often used by Bachelor stars, so he warned that anyone who uttered the word during his guest-hosting stint would be forced to contribute a dollar bill to the jar.He tossed in a couple of dollars himself after saying the word while explaining the rules of the jar. The jar was filled with bills by the end of the episode.For the first one-on-one date, dance instructor Kaitlyn, 29, was invited on what she believed to be an outing at a high-end club. But both she and Soules were surprised when they were taken to a Costco location, where they were ordered to stock up on beef jerky, mayonnaise, ketchup and other items for Kimmel.Kimmel later joined them for dinner, and he made the date even more uncomfortable by asking Kaitlyn whether she'd be upset if she were to win the competition but discover afterward that Soules had slept with other women in the fantasy suite.Kaitlyn claimed she wouldn't be angry because, "You can't take out a car without test-driving it." Kaitlyn received a rose, and had a make-out session with Soules in a hot tub, as Kimmel looked on from the other side of the tub, eating chicken wings.On the group date, Kimmel tested 12 women's farming skills by placing them in a relay race. The ladies had to milk a goat, shovel manure and chase after pigs. The winner was Carly, a cruise ship singer from Texas.To celebrate the occasion, Kimmel had Soules and Carly pose for a photo that recreated the famous American Gothic painting.Becca, a chiropractic assistant, was the lucky recipient of the group date rose.Soules brought fertility nurse Whitney to wine country for a Kimmel-free date. There, they crashed a wedding, with Soules telling guests that Whitney was his fiancee. The night ended with Whitney accepting a rose.Back at his “Bachelor” pad, Soules and Kimmel showered together for what was the funniest moment of the episode. The highlight was Soules and Kimmel washing one another's back.Kimmel informed the women that the cocktail party was canceled and that a pool party would be held instead. During the bash, Ashley I. shed tears, essentially because she was jealous of the time Jillian was able to spend with Soules. She eventually had the chance to hang out with Soules, hug it out with him, and kiss him.Ashley I. was the final bachelorette to receive a rose at the rose ceremony. Three women were eliminated, including Amber. The episode closed with a sketch in which usual Bachelor host Chris Harrison dismissed Kimmel, leaving Kimmel to cry in his limo.The Bachelor continues next Monday night on ABC.

Billy Crystal Clarifies Sex on TV Comments

Billy Crystal Clarifies Sex on TV Comments

ABC/A.M.P.A.S.(NEW YORK) — Billy Crystal tells The Hollywood Reporter the remarks he made about sex on TV this past weekend have been taken out of context.The trade paper says Crystal was making an appearance at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour to promote his new FX show The Comedians when he was asked about playing a gay character on the TV series Soap decades ago and what he thought about what has happened to television since then.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Crystal replied that playing the gay character Jodie on network TV “was very difficult at the time.” Crystal said it was 1977 and “it was awkward and it was tough.”As for what has happened to television in the year since, Crystal remarked, “I’ve seen some stuff recently on TV in different kinds of shows where the language or the explicit sex is really, you know, sometimes I get it, and sometimes I just feel like, ‘Ah, that’s too much for me’...sometimes it’s just pushed a little too far for my tastes, and I’m not going to get into which ones they are.”After Crystal was criticized for his remark, he released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying, “What I meant was that whenever sex or graphic nudity of any kind (gay or straight) is gratuitous to the plot or story it becomes a little too much for my taste.”

Seth Rogen Causes Stir with “American Sniper” Tweet

Seth Rogen Causes Stir with “American Sniper” Tweet

"American Sniper" - Warner Bros/American Roadshow(NEW YORK) — Clint Eastwood's movie American Sniper is making headlines, and not just because it's set a box office record. The film, starring Bradley Cooper as the late Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, has come under criticism from some who believe it glorifies a killer.The controversy surrounding the Oscar-nominated drama intensified when Seth Rogen tweeted on Sunday, "American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds." He was referring to a fake Nazi propaganda movie about a German sniper that was shown in the Quentin Tarantino flick.Rogen -- no stranger to controversy himself, given his role in The Interview -- insists his tweet was not meant to slight the movie. He clarified Monday on Twitter, "I just said something 'kinda reminded' me of something else. I actually liked American Sniper. It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene.""I wasn't comparing the two. Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can't compare them, though. But if you were having a slow news day, you're welcome for me giving you the opportunity to blow something completely out of proportion," he continued.Filmmaker Michael Moore has also addressed American Sniper on social media following reports that he criticized the movie. Moore had tweeted that his uncle was killed by a Japanese sniper in World War Two and that "snipers aren't heroes." But in a follow-up Facebook post, he stated his tweets were unrelated to American Sniper, writing that he "didn't say a word" about the movie and had instead commented on "what I was raised to believe about snipers," in light of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.Moore then proceeded to share his thoughts on American Sniper, calling Cooper's performance "one of the best of the year." But, he added, "too bad Clint gets Vietnam and Iraq confused in his storytelling. And that he has his characters calling Iraqis 'savages' throughout the film. But there is also anti-war sentiment expressed in the movie.""And there's a touching ending as the main character is remembered after being gunned down by a fellow American vet with PTSD who was given a gun at a gun range back home in Texas -- and then used it to kill the man who called himself the 'America Sniper,'" he wrote.Alluding to Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, Moore concluded, "I think most Americans don't think snipers are heroes. Hopefully not on this weekend when we remember that man in Memphis, Tennessee, who was killed by a sniper's bullet."American Sniper earned an estimated 105.3 million dollars during the four-day holiday weekend. It made 89.5 million from Friday through Sunday, a record total for a January weekend.The film is nominated for six Oscars, including best picture and best actor for Cooper.

Yolanda Foster Feels Like Her Brain ‘Confiscated’ Amid Lyme Disease

Yolanda Foster Feels Like Her Brain ‘Confiscated’ Amid Lyme Disease

Photo by: Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Yolanda Foster, who has been battling Lyme disease for the past three years, revealed she has been unable to read, write or even watch TV following a recent setback."It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it," the 51-year-old star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills wrote on her blog last week.Foster opened up about her struggle with the disease, a bacterial infection that is spread through a tick bite."I wasted the first year trying to get diagnosed and spent the next two trying to find a cure," said Foster, who was diagnosed in 2012. "I have gone from the conventional long-term antibiotics to about every holistic protocol there is to offer. Unfortunately, I was only able to get to about a 60 percent recovery until I relapsed in early December and have not been able to find my way back."Besides a couple passing references, Foster's ongoing battle with Lyme disease has gone largely unmentioned in the current season of Real Housewives. But she was candid in her blog post."The most frustrating thing is that there is medical data on Lyme and spirochete infections going back all the way to 1908, but yet we still don't have proper diagnostic testing, a vaccine, or a cure for Lyme disease while we are living in the United States of America, the most extraordinary country in the world," Foster wrote."Something doesn’t add up here, and I will made it my life mission to figure this out, because nobody deserves to suffer this way in 2015. Unfortunately, I am of no use to anyone or anything at this moment while weathering the storm," she said.Foster said despite having found no cure she has "faith that I will."In the meantime, the former model, who is married to composer David Foster, is relying on the "unwavering support of my husband, my children, and a handful of true friends," she said, adding how grateful she is for the messages of support she has received on social media.

Jeff Davis lip-syncing to Taylor Swift’s hit “Shake It Off” was posted to YouTube Friday and as of Sunday night, it had been viewed more than 12 million times.Davis really gets into his performance as he drives -- shaking his head and shoulders, and even taking both hands off the steering wheel of his moving squad car as he gets more animated. The 19-year police veteran said he already knew the lyrics, thanks to his 10-year-old daughter.The department first posted the video on its Facebook page, writing: “While reviewing dashcam footage, we come across some interesting sights to say the least. We decided we would share some with you in a new web series called 'Dash Cam Confessionals.' We hope you enjoy this...and Taylor Swift if you're watching...we're sorry.”The police department later said the video was staged and done for fun, only taking 15 minutes to shoot.Swift herself appeared to be tickled by the video, tweeting:

Angela Bassett Says “Waiting to Exhale” Sequel Is ‘Impossible’

Photo by Valerie Macon/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Angela Bassett, one of the stars of the 1995 hit film Waiting to Exhale, said a sequel likely won't happen after the death of co-star Whitney Houston."I think it made it impossible afterwards. It already suffered the loss of Gregory Hines, another beloved character," the actress told ABC News.Hines portrayed the neighbor and eventual husband of Loretta Devine's Gloria."And then Whitney? ...I think it was a blow that made it impossible to figure out how to do that," Bassett continues. "Do you recast and act like nothing's happened? It was just too difficult I think."Fox 2000 Pictures President Elizabeth Gabler initially told New York magazine in 2012 that they'd continue with their planned sequel despite Houston's death, saying she didn't think Houston "would want it" if the sequel was cancelled. Gabler added, "It’s almost in her honor that we think to soldier on."Waiting to Exhale, directed by Forest Whitaker and also starring Lela Rochon, centered on four friends living and loving in Phoenix, Arizona. Like the original, the sequel would have been based on a Terry McMillan book -- in this case, Getting to Happy.

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Aniston went into Thursday's Oscar nominations with a lot of momentum and buzz for her performance in Cake.But the nomination didn't come and the megastar was very candid about her reaction to the snub."I'd be lying if there wasn't a little aw," she told Access Hollywood on Thursday at the Critics' Choice Awards.But the Friends actress, 45, preferred to look on the bright side and the fact she's been nominated for other awards and is still proud of the critically acclaimed role. "But after that there's a lot of like, 'But look at tonight, look at the Globes, look at the SAGs!'" Aniston said. "We're an embarrassment of wonderful riches that we've [gotten for] a movie that hasn't even been released and is teensy tiny. This is all just kind of cherries on top of something that was really special to us. So we're really excited." Aniston said that close friend Reese Witherspoon, who was nominated, sent her a sweet email after the Oscar list came out. "They are amazing women and we are all rooting for each other," she added. "It doesn't take away the work that was done."
