Kanye West isn't exactly known as the most magnanimous man in Hollywood. His Tweets are epic, his concert rants controversial.

But Justin Bieber has worked with the rapper and said of Kanye in a recent interview with hip-hop magazine XXL: "He's not really an asshole like everyone makes him out to be."

Whoa. Dropping the A-bomb! Justin must be serious.

Granted, Bieber admits, West "can do bad things" and, yes, he can "make bad decisions." Overall, though? "He's really generally a good guy," Bieber said of the artist with whom he collaborated on "Runaway Love."

Give the Biebs credit - or scoff at his decisions - for being unafraid to align himself with stars who don't fit his squeaky clean image. There's Kanye here. And then there's the duet he produced with Chris Brown.

Shield your eyes, Beliebers.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were spotted at Lucky Strike in downtown Los Angeles last night, enjoying each other's company and singing a duet of Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock's "Picture." They sealed the performance with a smooch, as seen here:

If it's any comfort, Justin lovers, the single is about a long-distance couple that can't really make things right.

So far, though, even with Selena surging past her man in popularity, all appears very, very well in Jelena world. Sorry.

Selena Gomez is more popular than Justin Bieber these days. Unlike the guilt of Casey Anthony, this is a fact.

Gomez has jumped past her boyfriend to claim the number-one spot on Billboard's Social 50 list, a ranking that considers the "most active artists on the world’s leading social networking sites... using a formula blending weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with weekly artist page views and weekly song plays," according to the company behind it.

Bieber does come in at number-two on the list, at least. Let's take a look at the top five, shall we?

  1. Selena Gomez
  2. Justin Bieber
  3. Michael Jackson
  4. Lady Gaga
  5. Shakira

Perhaps Selena owes Justin a comforting foot massage now. No matter which order they are in, though, it's clear: this couple owns the Internet.

He may not be able to move magazines, but Justin Bieber knows a thing or two million about selling perfume.

Following the singer's launch of "Someday" at Macy's late last month, Muriel Gonzalez, store executive vice president and general manager, said sales were on track to be the "biggest we've ever had."

In February of last year, Beyoncé set the Macy's record when she debuted "Heat" at the same location and sold $3 million worth of it during the first month on counter.

Bieber's estimates, according to The Hollywood Reporter? $30 million.

That's mind-boggling, but we'll see how the scent performs throughout 2011. In 2002, Jennifer Lopez's "Glow earned over $100 million in its first year on the market, while Britney Spears matched that mark with "Curious" two years later.

It's stunning but true: not everyone in the country is inflicted with Justin Bieber Fever. Millions of cases in point: those who typically read Vanity Fair.

The February issue of this magazine, which featured the 17-year old icon on the cover, has sold a mere 246,000 copies since its release. That makes it the second-worst selling edition of the publication EVER, moving more issues than only a Will Smith-anchored issue from 1999.

In related news, an April 2010 People magazine that also featured the Biebs reportedly sold 25 percent less than that publication's average.

So, what's the deal, Beliebers? Are you falling out of love with Mr. Selena Gomez? Or do you simply get your Bieber intel from blogs such as THG? (Editor's note: Thank you!)

Like Andy Samberg and T-Pain, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez spent part of their holiday weekend on a boat.

The couple were spotted in Sag Harbor, New York on Friday, hanging out on a 155-foot yacht with random fellow celebrities Russell Simmons and former Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

A Flower from Biebs

"They were messing around," an onlooker told The New York Daily News of Justin and Selena. "They showed affection, but it wasn't like they were groping each other."

However - eek alert! - this witness says Bieber took "off his shirt and [was] playing patty-cake with Selena."

A man named Justin John Bieber is creating quite the stir on Facebook for two reasons:

  1. His name.
  2. The fact that he goes off on Justin Bieber.
FB Profile

A 50-year old man, this Justin Bieber feels as attached to his name as Michael Bolton did on Office Space: he was here first, he thinks the other Justin Bieber is a "punk ass little bandit" and he has no intention of changing it!

We don't approve of some of Justin John's language or reference, but it's better to see a middle-aged man turning away "little girls" than trying to friend them, isn't it?

UPDATE: Apparently this Facebook profile is a fake and the picture is of French computer scientist Michael Xhaard.

Justin Bieber was his usual, calm, cute self at last weekend's BET Awards.

He battled Jaden Smith in a Fashion Face-Off, he flirted with Nicki Minaj on stage. But sources confirm that a confrontation took place prior to the show, as Justin and his team tried to enter the event.

Detailed in the video above, Justin's entourage was stopped at the door because one of his bodyguards did not have a ticket. Both sides argued and Bieber jumped in, saying:

"I need to bring my security! This guy's a douche bag."

Don't worry, fans: Justin Bieber won't be promoting perfume forever.

The singer is already planning his next album, although it's unlikely to hit stores any time soon. In an interview with MTV, Justin said of the eventual CD:

"I want to] write a lot myself. I will be working with a lot of other producers and stuff like that, but I'm just writing a lot, writing on tour."

Greetings, Justin Bieber

Fans have plenty of options to listen to until Bieber does take over the charts with his next release, of course. He's already come out with (deep breath...) My World, My World 2.0, Never Say Never - The Remixes and My Worlds Acoustic.

Expect to hear more of the latter down the road.

"I've done a lot on my acoustic guitar, so it's gonna have that vibe. I'm not gonna really limit myself... I know there's country music, there's rock music, but my music is different. My voice is not meant for any style. I just want to make music."

Should we bother to ask: Are you excited for a new album from Justin Bieber?

Justin Bieber makes the dreams of female admirers come true simply by walking down the street in their presence.

But the teenage icon went out of his way to grant the wish of one special fan last week, and he had President Obama's help in doing it.

Justin Biebs

As previously explained, Payton Wall is a 14-year old girl who lost her father in the World Trade Center attacks on 9/11/01. She met Obama at a wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero in May, expressed her desire to meet Bieber and was shocked when the Commander-in-Chief replied:

"I know Justin. Maybe I could set something up."

Fast forward to June 23.
