Is it possible that Justin Bieber is even more charitable than he is adorable?

The 16-year old sensation performed at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee last night. Prior to the concert, he announced that, for every ticket purchased, $1.06 would go to area flood relief, as the region still recovers from a massive spring storm that left many dead and homeless.

Ke$ha, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus have all performed benefit concerts in the state since this natural disaster struck.

"I’m really glad to be here and help out, something that’s really important to me," Bieber said at a press conference prior to the event, which raised $32,000-plus for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

No wonder Justin is considered a young world leader, huh?

Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki from Jersey Shore, has found an unlikely ally in U.S. Sen. John McCain. Ally for what? Nothing really. But he's on Team Snooki!

In a radio interview yesterday, the former GOP Presidential candidate offered his opinion on the July 30 disorderly conduct arrest of the MTV reality star.

"I kind of think she might be too good looking to go to jail," said McCain, seeking reelection to the Senate this year at the age of 73, on Phoenix's KMLE.

Snooki, who spent a few hours behind bars for being drunk in broad daylight before posting bail, agrees. Monday, she told MTV succinctly, and humbly:

"I'm too pretty to be in jail... I'm not a criminal."

Start printing the McCain/Snooki 2012 presidential campaign signs now. She may actually be an intellectual step up from his previous choice of running mate.

Amazingly, this isn't the first McCain shout-out to the pint-sized party girl.

After the Oompa Loompa lodged a complaint about proposed taxes on tanning beds in the Jersey Shore premiere, the veteran politician Tweeted in kind.

McCain, or an intern who watches Jersey Shore and worked in a quality play on words, Tweeted at Ms. Polizzi: "@Sn00ki ur right, I would never tax ur tanning bed! O's tax policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!"

EDITOR'S NOTE: In referencing this line - one of our favorite Jersey Shore quotes of the new season - we chided Snooki on the grounds that the law doesn't take effect for years. The law has, in fact, taken effect already. We regret the error!

Snook bashed President Obama for his "tax on tanning." Obama, too, referenced her in a recent interview, although somewhat less flatteringly. He claimed he didn't know who Snooki was during his controversial appearance on The View.

Montana Fishburne is a porn star and doesn't try to hide it.

No word if she's equally and unabashedly proud of the fact that she is being prosecuted for assault with a deadly weapon against her boyfriend's ex this year.

Montana Fishburne Sextape

Laurence Fishburne's 19-year-old daughter was arrested back in February for allegedly barging into the alleged victim's home, forcing her into the bathroom and beating her senseless. According to TMZ, the victim had "significant injuries."

The L.A. City Attorney's Office has charged Montana Fishburne with battery, and will add charges of false imprisonment and assault with a deadly weapon.

More details from Chippy D's troubled past have come to light.

Montana, who's being repped by Shawn Chapman Holley (the famed attorney for Lindsay Lohan, among others) pleaded not guilty and the case is pending.

Her boyfriend in question, Jerome Greene, was also charged in the attack against his ex-girlfriend, but has already pleaded no contest to domestic battery.

As for Montana, who just released her first sex tape through Vivid (she was just offered a multi-picture deal), she can pile it on the list of legal problems.

She was arrested for prostitution last November, pleading no contest to a lesser charge of criminal trespass and being placed on probation as a result.

If nothing else, the assault case could be a probation violation. Stay tuned.

So much for those Olive Uniacke rumors.

Despite being romantically linked to that British party girl, the Harry Potter star tells the latest issue of Out that he's single.

"I was in a relationship with somebody for just about three years, and we broke up just shortly before we hit that mark. But [the breakup] was very amicable. At the moment, I’m just being single and running around chasing girls," Radcliffe said, laughing.

Elsewhere in the interview, Radcliffe makes it clear why he's the rare child star unaffected by his early fame. How many people his age in general would have the following, mature viewpoints on gay marriage, politics and Hollywood?

On Nick Clegg, England's the Deputy Prime Minister: I’m a very big fan. I’ve actually met him, and I have to say he’s a really, really good man. I don’t agree with everything he says, but of all the party leaders, he was the one I voted for. I thought he was a great speaker and very charismatic and very statesmanlike.

And I’m glad that he is still in a prominent position in British politics because I think he could make a great contribution. He comes from absolutely the right place in terms of what his values are.

On the growing acceptance of alternative lifestyles: I think that with every generation, people become more open to those ideas and more aware and more educated. But it’s a really, really slow process. If you take any family with parents who are bringing their kids up in a narrow-minded way that includes homophobia, it will take a very profound moment of realization to change those deep-seated views.

On recently visiting Hollywood... for the first time: People seem to have a very bizarre perception of me - that I’m a Hollywood actor. I don’t think of myself that way. And when I was out there and telling people it was pretty much my first trip, jaws just hit the floor. They were looking at me like I had two heads.

Expect to hear a lot more from Radcliffe as he continues publicity for the November 19 release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Bill Simmons, a.k.a. The Sports Guy of ESPN fame, recently pondered if anyone with less talent has ever had a longer shelf life than Levi Johnston.

He makes a fair point, and the baby daddy of Bristol Palin shows no signs of fading into the sunset anytime soon. Any possible PR is good PR, right?

He'll be putting that theory to the test with a new show, Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office. Yup, he's running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

The current office-holder doesn't seem all that worried about a challenge from a 20-year-old high school dropout, but hey, you never know, right?

The producers at Stone & Company Entertainment are excited to bring his bid for office to your TVs. Head honcho Scott Stone spoke to EW about ...

The current status: "We're pitching the show as advertised, Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office. We’re going up to Alaska to shoot for a couple of weeks. Once we have our story set up properly, we’ll start pitching it to the networks."

Future Mayor

Is Levi Johnston ready for a career in politics?

On who will air this nonsense: "I tend to do shows that could run multiple places. We will target the ones that are most interested first, and suffice to say we’ve gotten a ton of interest since the announcement went out yesterday."

On Levi's reaction to the idea: "Levi’s a young guy, and running for office is a scary proposition and a big commitment. He thought about it, and then he came back and said, “I thought about it, let’s talk and see if we can do this.”

On whether the Palins will be involved: "We went into this with zero expectation for any involvement from the Palins. If that changes, that’s purely their choice. We would welcome it, but it’s going to be the Levi Johnston show.

On Levi's political leanings: "Levi is well known all over the country, and you can be sure he’ll take advantage of it for his campaign. He’s already come out and said that he’s half-redneck and half-Hollywood. The Hollywood part isn’t going away."

Would you elect Levi mayor?

With Fantasia Barrino having been released from the hospital following her overdose on aspirin this week (manager Brian Dickens says his client "has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans"), celebrity gossip followers are left with one question:

Who, exactly, is Antwaun Cook?

Album Promoting

This married man is at the center of the Fantasia drama, as a recent statement from the singer acknowledged an 11-month relationship him, one that definitely included matching tattoos and may have included a sex tape, at least according to Antwaun wife, Paula.

Here's what we can tell readers about Antwaun Cook:

  • He met Fantasia while managing a T-Mobile store in Charlotte.
  • The singer was interested in him because he was not in the music industry. "He's just a regular dude," she told People months ago.
  • He's an East Carolina University graduate and former member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.
  • He obtained his real estate license in 2006 and joined the firm Keller Williams Realty this month.

Despite Fantasia supposed belief that Cook and his wife separated last year, legal documents confirm they only started living apart in June 2010. They also have two kids together.

Barrino could also be in extra trouble due to the location of her residence: North Carolina is one of seven states that allows a party to sue a "home wrecker."

After circulating an internal memo that made it clear JetBlue did not think of Steven Slater as a hero, the airline has now released a public statement.

The light-hearted document reads:

Sometimes the weird news is about us...

It wouldn’t be fair for us to point out absurdities in other corners of the industry without acknowledging when it’s about us. Well, this week’s news certainly falls into that category. Perhaps you heard a little story about one of our flight attendants? While we can’t discuss the details of what is an ongoing investigation, plenty of others have already formed opinions on the matter. Like, the entire Internet. (The reason we’re not commenting is that we respect the privacy of the individual. People can speak on their own behalf; we won’t do it for them.)

While this episode may feed your inner Office Space, we just want to take this space to recognize our 2,300 fantastic, awesome and professional Inflight Crewmembers for delivering the JetBlue Experience you’ve come to expect of us.

You can’t make this shtick up.

JetBlue has also issued a $100 voucher to those that were aboard Slater's flight.

Meanwhile, the largest flight attendants union around in existence is coming to the defense of Slater - literally!

A day after he pleaded not guilty to a number of charges that could land him in prison, the Association of Flight Attendants says: "We want to advance the profession no matter what. Sometimes in order to do that we must help people who may not necessarily be members."

With that sentiment/goal in mind, the AFA has offered to fund Slater's legal team, something he might have to consider. After all, the fed-up employee's action could land him in prison for seven years.

Wouldn't it be depressing if Steve Slater spent more time behind bars than Lindsay Lohan?

There are two reasons why celebrity gossip followers might believe Kim Kardashian is single:

  1. This tabloid cover.
  2. This alluring photo spread with Justin Bieber.

But the first example listed is purposely misleading, while the second is simply gross. Also, Kim herself has now told E! News that she is "definitely dating" Miles Austin, a confirmation she had to make because the pair has not been seen together in awhile.

Going Green

There's a good reason for that, Kim says: "He's in the middle of his football season and he's focused and I'm just trying to have fun and take everything really slow."

Kim Kardashian is going totally against type by dating Miles Austin.

A source adds that Kardashian will visit Austin at Cowboys' training camp in Dallas next week.

Meanwhile, even though she's proudly dating, Kim claims she's in no rush to settle down.

"I don't feel any pressure [to have children]. Now is the one time in my life I can be 100% selfish. I'm not married; I don't have kids; I can focus on my career."

And on avoiding crazed Justin Bieber fans that wish to do her harm due to the aforementioned pictorial. Seriously, Kim. Steer clear of these folks.

Marsha Revel, the Beverly Hills judge notoriously unmoved by Lindsay Lohan's nonsense and who threw her in jail last month, is stepping down from the case.

Revel recused herself Friday after the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office objected to meetings between the judge and defense attorneys in the case.

Prosecutor Danette Meyers raised the issue at a meeting between her, Revel and Lohan's defense attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, according to the L.A. Times.

Before prosecutors could file to request the change, Revel stepped aside, court spokesman Allan Parachini confirmed. Judge Elden Fox has taken her place.

The judge's contact with defense lawyers as well as others, such as the Morningside Recovery drug and alcohol treatment center, were the source of conflict.

It is unclear how or why this contact was inappropriate.

After Lohan's release from the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, she was taken to the neuropsychiatric ward at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

There, she will receive three months of rehab.

The change of judges marks the latest twist in a drama in which Revel had gone toe-to-toe with Lohan frequently and taken center stage along with the actress.

Last month, Revel dressed down the troubled star for repeatedly lying about her role in two drunken-driving related incidents within months of each other in 2007, and then failing to attend alcohol education classes as part of her probation.

"I'm not taking this as a joke," Lohan told the judge at the July 6 hearing before Revel. "I take responsibility for my actions. I've tried to do the best I can. It's been such a long haul, I don't want you to think that I don't respect you."

The whole fingernail display didn't help that argument.

Stephanie Pratt is somehow dating two dudes at the same time. Presumably they go out on the same date, like on The Bachelorette, but still. Play on, player!

A week after her bitter Twitter breakup with Josh Hansen, The Hills star is hedging her bets going forward by pursuing more than one fella interest at a time.

"I'm seeing two guys right now," she tells People, "it's actually way more fun than seeing one. I've never done something like this, but it's really quite lovely!"

The She-Pratt says it's all about keeping her options open.

"It's not really 'single' life, but I'm way too young for relationships," the 24-year-old said at Tuesday's Nylon + Express Denim Issue Party in W. Hollywood. "I've decided I want to keep things light, and I've realized that guys are children!"

Stephanie Pratt says guys are basically kids who need to be trained.

Well, sure, if your brother is Spencer Pratt, that's the obvious assumption. But the point of her new strategy is to educate, not aggravate, the opposite sex.

She says her two guys, who remain anonymous for now, can take a hint.

"It trains them to ask for dates a lot earlier in advance," Stephanie says. "That's the most amazing part is that I've realized they can actually be trained."

Ideally, of course, she wouldn't need to.

"My perfect man is someone that wants to read a book in Hawaii," the female Pratt says with a laugh. "I want someone that doesn't want to be in Hollywood. I want someone who has their own deal, and who thinks that what I do is 'weird.'"

What is it that she does exactly? Just saying. Anyone?
