Most Americans do not like Justin Bieber.
This is terribly upsetting.
Public Policy Polling released the results of a survey asking how Americans feel about Justin Bieber. In a music-oriented poll, the pop star was among the artists rated unfavorably by 50 percent or more of respondents.
According to the Daily Beast, Chris Brown, Lady Gaga and Morrissey suffered the same fate.
Taylor Swift, Adele, Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake were among the most-liked, with Timberlake finishing first among artists Americans would most like to see president.
That's a bit of a random question, don't you think?
Jay-Z barely beat out Bieber in this category, with 9 percent saying they'd like to see Jay-Z in the Oval Office, and 8 percent saying they'd approve of President Bieber.
PARIS JACKSON MOVING IN WITH MOM: Paris Jackson is moving in with her mother Debbie Rowe, according to the New York Daily News.
Michael Jackson's 15-year-old daughter has been cared for by her grandmother and guardian Katherine Jackson since her father's death. But that could be all about to change.
"There has been a string of turbulent rows in the Jackson home over the past few weeks and it's all coming to a head," a source told website CelebrityFix.
There's some news -- the Jacksons aren't the Bradys or the Cleavers.
Paris spent her birthday with Rowe last month, and the pair have spent a lot of time together the past few weeks.
"Whilst she loves her grandmother Katherine, Paris thinks she has some extremely old-fashioned beliefs," an insider told the gossip site, referring to the 84-year-old Jackson matriarch. "Paris is an extremely independent young woman and as she's got older, she's starting to voice her opinion more and stand up for herself and her beliefs. Paris is trying to persuade (her brothers) Prince and Blanket to join her. Debbie has told her they would all be welcome, but there are certain laws which have to be obeyed and Paris knows that whilst she may be able to leave, it would be far more difficult for the boys due to the legalities."
Whilst? Is this source from the 17th century?
Rowe, a former nurse, is the biological mother of Paris and Prince. She was married to Michael Jackson from 1996 to 1999. Jackson got full custody of the kids and Rowe got $8 million in the divorce settlement.
SLAYER GUITARIST DIED OF CIRRHOSIS: Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman died of alcohol-related cirrhosis -- scarring of the liver from years of heavy drinking -- reported TMZ, quoting the band's website.
The influential thrash-metal band posted a statement saying, "While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent Necrotizing fasciitis infection (AKA flesh-eating disease) that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life."
"Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time before that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving -- he was excited and looking forward to working on a record."
According to TMZ, Hanneman, 49, had several operations last year to remove dead tissue from his arm. He believed he contracted the flesh-eating bacteria from a spider bite.
Slayer is still working out the details of a public celebration of Hanneman's life, to be held later this month. Hanneman was born in Oakland.
JIMI HENDRIX WANTED PAUL MCCARTNEY IN BAND: Jimi Hendrix wanted to form a supergroup with Paul McCartney and Miles Davis, says a new report from RollingStone.com.
The website says Hendrix and Davis planned to record together the year before Hendrix's death in 1970, and decided to invite McCartney to join them on bass. Hendrix, Davis and jazz drummer Tony Williams sent a telegram on Oct. 21, 1969, to the Beatles' Apple Records, hoping to get McCartney in for a session.
"We are recording an LP together this weekend in NewYork (sic)," reads the note, according to The Associated Press. "How about coming in to play bass stop call Alvan Douglas 212-5812212. Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams."
Rolling Stone said it's unclear if McCartney was aware of the request. The telegram says to contact producer Alan Douglas, and is asking McCartney to visit New York from London on short notice. Beatles aide Peter Brown responded the next day, telling Hendrix and Davis that McCartney was out on vacation and wasn't expected back for two weeks. McCartney may have had other things on his mind. The telegraph arrived the same day DJ Roby Yonge from New York's WABC furthered the rumor that McCartney died in a car crash and was replaced by an impostor. The Beatles were dealing with internal strife and McCartney running off to record with Hendrix probably wouldn't have helped things, said Rollinstone.com.
MILEY CYRUS IS ALLEGEDLY HOT: Miley Cyrus tops Maxim's annual "Hot 100" list.
Right. The skinny Disney kid with the weird haircut.
"If feels amazing to be the No. 1," Cyrus told Maxim. "It's every woman's fantasy to be told she's No. 1 on Maxim's Hot 100! So crazy!"
According to the Huffington Post, Maxim said Cyrus held the top spot from the very beginning of four months' worth of reader voting.
"This pixie-haired beauty brought it home for America, storming to the top spot the first week of voting and never losing command of her seat of world power," said the Maxim news release. "So as we officially rename 2013 the Year of the Miley, let's all party in the U.S.A. and rock out to her collaborations with Maxim heroes like Snoop Lion and will.i.am. Miley, we hereby anoint thee Queen of Our Hearts."
OK, just stop.
Cyrus is followed on the list by Selena Gomez, whose bikini-wearing, bong-smoking role in "Spring Breakers" undoubtedly helped to magnify her sex appeal this year. Rihanna, Mila Kunis and Jennifer Lawrence round out the top five.
There were some surprises. "Today" show host Hoda Kotb is No. 79. Right -- the one who gets drunk with Kathie Lee Gifford. Maxim refers to the 48-year-old as an "Egyptian goddess."
California's attorney general Kamala Harris -- who received global attention when President Obama referred to her as "by far, the best looking attorney general in the country," made the list at No. 54.
And just for fun, Manti Te'o's imaginary girlfriend was listed at No. 69.
In the upset department, Beyoncé failed to crack the top 10, landing at No. 14. Megan Fox and Blake Lively were ranked in the 20s, while Ashley Benson and Kat Dennings placed in the 80s. Sophia Vergara fell to No. 49.
Salma Hayek didn't make the list at all. Hoda Kotb was 49, but no Salma Hayek.
Someone over at Maxim needs to be arrested.
