Ready for the cutest memoir in the history of the world?

USA Today confirms that HarperCollins will release an illustrated Justin Bieber biography in October, as the teen will take fans behind the scenes of his journey from Canadian nobody to global superstardom. It will be titled Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story.

"Every day I wake up and count my blessings," Bieber said. "My fans have played such a large part in all of this and they help live my dreams every day. I'm excited to share just a little bit more of my world with them through this book.

"Between the behind-the-scenes pictures and the story I think this is going to be something they can all enjoy. This is just another way for me to say thank you to my fans."

Bieber was raised by a single mother and initially noticed after posting a series of videos on YouTube. He was eventually signed to a record deal by Usher - and the rest is adorable history.

A memoir is only the latest way in which Justin is expanding his empire beyond music. He'll also be recurring on CSI this season and may star in a movie about his life.

Hear that, crazy Church goers? You can't keep this kid down!

Michael Jackson has left us, but the late music icon's art remains.

There's more to come, too.

The King of Pop is set to release a posthumous album of brand new songs this November, and it's probably not the only one of its kind we'll get to sample.

Rolling Stone is reporting that MJ has approximately 100 unreleased songs from throughout his career, and his estate's executors are making the most of them.

Michael in Concert

Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

With his June 2009 death renewing interest in his legacy and creating an entire new generation of fans, the estate has inked a $250 million deal with Sony.

That's $250 million Mocienne Petit Jackson won't be seeing any of.

Jackson's "new" material will be released over the next seven years - along with reissues of MJ hits - although it is unclear how many albums there will be.

Among the unreleased tracks on the forthcoming compilation are collaborations with Akon, Will.i.am and Ne-Yo. What do you think? Would you buy it?

At least she isn't wearing a bikini.

Just days after sister Kendall made her official, controversial modeling debut, 12-year old Kylie Jenner has become the latest girl in the Kardashian/Jenner clan to pose professionally.

Kardashian Family

Kylie has been chosen by Sears to appear in a series of fall TV commercials to promote the chain's “Crush Your Style - The Search for America’s Top Style Crush” contest.

As you might expect, older sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian have already Tweeted their support, as the former wrote: “So proud of u Kylie! my sisters are superstars!” and the latter chimed in with: “OMG I’m such a proud parent right now LOL!”

Looks like Kylie is well on her way to joining her attention-starved family on tabloid covers and reality shows. Please, please, someone keep Ray J away from her.

If there's a time for a correctional facility to release a high-profile inmate while attracting as little attention as possible, it's 1:35 a.m. on a Monday morning.

That's when Lindsay Lohan was let out of jail in Lynwood, Calif., today. In the end, the star served a whopping 13 of her 90-day sentence in a solitary cell.

She was taken to UCLA Medical Center to begin rehab treatment.

"She was released at 1:35 a.m.," L.A. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said. "She has been sent directly to her next destination, a treatment center."

Lohan's sentence was cut drastically due to good behavior and the sheriff's policy of releasing non-violent offenders early because of major overcrowding.

She was not, however, allowed to delay rehab as she desired.

Say Wut

The troubled star was expecting to serve her court-ordered 90 days in rehab at Morningside Recovery in Orange County, but the judge changed her mind.

Judge Marsha Revel was concerned that drugs could be very easily passed on to the actress there, and therefore approved UCLA Medical Center instead.

Sources tell TMZ that in rehab, Lohan will be treated for addiction to methamphethamine and bipolar disorder, though her attorney has disputed this.

Lindsay Lohan takes Adderall, an amphetamine. While methamphetamine is different, a rehab facility might qualify it as the same drug or addiction type.

In any case, if she violates any rules during her treatment, the court could be notified and the judge could potentially throw her back in jail again.

She also faces a year of random drug testing. The 24-year-old actress must stay clean and sober until August 2011, when her probation term expires.

Can Lindsay stay clean?

Announcing his weekend wedding with little fanfare, former Dawson's Creek hunk James Van Der Beek broke the news to his fans via a brief Twitter post.

Of his bride, Kimberly Brook, he said: "The woman I love did me the honor of became my wife today. I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life."

"Best day of my life so far."

That's gotta be pretty rough to hear (and not just for the horrendous grammar) if you're Heather McComb, Van Der Beek's previous wife of six years.

The two finalized their divorce fairly recently, this March.

Kimberly Brook and James Van Der Beek are married!

Further details of his wedding to Kimberly remain scarce. But in June, the cute couple revealed that they are expecting their first child together later this year.

“We’re so excited to announce we are expecting a girl [this fall]," Brook said. "We are thinking and taking suggestions for names, but we have no idea."

Congratulations to the happy couple! Also marrying this weekend:

When two of the more annoying reality TV fixtures in recent years collide in a fashion face-off, you know it's going to be a style smackdown for the ages.

The Real Housewives of New York City drama queen Kelly Bensimon picked her A/X Armani Exchange romper for a movie premiere in (where else) NYC.

Meanwhile, The Bachelor star, now ex-fiancee of Jake Pavelka and all-around class act belted a printed one-piece for a pool party she hosted in Vegas.

Who rocked this fashion statement better? Vote below!

Kelly, Vienna

Which star's style do you like better?

“Thank God I jerk off left-handed or I’d have no social life this week.” - Scott Disick

To say Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy is a loser would be an understatement, but it appears our fair heroine finally wised up to this truth last night.

Read on to see what the poor THG intern stuck watching his antics on reality TV thought of last night's installment on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami:

Finally, it was the episode we’ve all been waiting for. The “Douche-pocalyse” (thank you How I Met Your Mother). Scott Disick done lost his marbles, ya’ll.

Okay so Kourtney wises up and realizes Scott’s back to his old tricks and drinking and partying too much. She and Kim chat about this while on their friend Loren’s yacht, which is gorgeous by the way. When they return home, they notice their apartment smells like weed and Kourtney confronts Scott.

Kourt, Scott and Mason: One sweet, happy family.

In his effed up state, he grabs Kourtney tightly by the wrist (none of this is filmed) and she slaps him across the face. She then runs out, grabs Kim and Mason and they head back to Loren’s for safety. Meanwhile, Scott is left to his own devices with only the producers and cameramen to supervise.

He punches the mirror, injuring his hand and is taken to the hospital

This is the realest I’ve seen this show get. 

There’s no way that was made up. Everyone knows Scott is crazy, but you can tell just by the filming that this wasn’t fake. The cameramen had to call the producers to decide how to deal with Scott. Kourtney and Kim were visibly scared, and it was altogether a very messed up situation. This is just so sad for Mason.

The next day, Scott apologizes profusely and ends up getting surgery on his hand. Kourtney decides that although she wants to be there for his surgery, she needs to do what’s best for her and Mason.

Scott Disick: The monster, devilish boyfriend from hell.

On the random flip side of this episode, Kim Kardashian is still upset about her breakup with Reggie. She brings it up out of nowhere and it’s not even well transitioned by the producers. She wants to find a mate who will accept her for who she is.

Don’t we all? Anyway, there’s nothing better to cheer a gal up then have a Maserati flown in directly for her!

By the way, it’s such an obvious ploy to keep having Jonathan Cheban pop up on this show. He’s Kim’s best friend, not Kourtney’s or Khloe’s. Clearly, this was a setup by E! to help plug their next reality show, The Spin Crowd.

But enough about him, Khloe is back next week and she comes with a very angry visitor. Oh snap, Scott is about to endure the wrath of Kris Jenner. Amen.

The cover for Sarah Palin’s newest book, America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag, has just been released by publisher HarperCollins.

The book is due out November 23, after the midterm elections and about a year after the release of her bestseller, Going Rogue: An American Life.

Expect the new book – and extensive book tour - to amplify the speculation over whether the ex-Alaska Governor will run for president in 2012.

It certainly would be interesting if she challenged Barack Obama.

Among the many, many things Palin ripped Obama about in the past was his writing two books and having very little to show for it legislatively.

Since the 2008 campaign, she resigned as governor to focus on her career ambitions, whatever those are, and apparently write a few herself.

Just saying.

Should Sarah Palin run for President in 2012?

It was no three-city extravaganza like T.I. and Tiny's wedding.

No diplomats and former heads of state were on hand like at the widely publicized nuptials of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky.

Still, it was perfect for Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz, who wed a private ceremony Saturday in a home on the Mediterranean Sea before family and friends.

The bride wore a Grecian-inspired Vera Wang dress and carried a bouquet of purple calla lilies. The groom was decked out in a Tom Ford tuxedo.

The couple's friend, Dr. Deepak Chopra, presided over the nuptials.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz have come so far.

"Wowwwwwwwww," Beatz (real name: Kasseem Dean) Twittered afterward. "It's a brand new day :) I feel like Nas and Diddy song :) love y’all and blessing!"

The couple, who are also expecting their first child together, have been together since fall 2008. They announced their engagement and baby news in May.

It's the first marriage for Keys and the couple's first child together.

While the newlyweds don't know the gender of their baby just yet, Beatz says it is just magical experience to be bringing a child into this world with Alicia.

"That baby is being born blessed parents," he recently said. "Alicia is definitely one of those great parents-to-be. She's super ready. Super glowing, happy."

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Jessica Simpson is getting a little desperate for attention these days if you ask us isn't afraid to show the world her love for new beau Eric Johnson.

The one-time singer and actress posted a shot of her smooching her latest squeeze (a Yale graduate AND former NFL player) on her Twitter page.

Large Jessica Simpson

"Romance 101... getting kissed by my Yalie... me not lookin' so smart... :)" she wrote. "but YUM!" Pretty much sums it all up right there ...

Jessica Simpson is in love - and wants the world to know!

It's good to see her happy, but should we be concerned?

Fueling rumors that Eric Johnson is just using her, rumors surfaced this weekend that he pulled out of the two-year business program at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton school to remain in L.A. with the star.

Even though they've only been together eight weeks, a source says: "He doesn’t want to move to Philadelphia and leave her so soon after they got together."

Plus, living with/sponging off Jessica Simpson has to beat an MBA in market value, are we right? It doesn't take a Yale degree to figure that out ...
