Justin Bieber officially turned 18 on Thursday and made sure to celebrate his big milestone right at a bash with all of his closest A-list pals.
Surprised with a Friday night party at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel put on by his manager Scooter Braun and his mom Patti Mallette, Bieber spent the night with celebs including girlfriend Selena Gomez (who flew in from filming Spring Breakers in Florida), Kim Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Mike Tyson and others.
“Everyone danced all night,” a partygoer told reporters, also attended by Ashley Tisdale and Cody Simpson.
Dressed to the nines in a black and white suit, the man of the hour mingled with his grandparents and other friends who flew in from Canada for the occasion, but largely stuck by Gomez’s side.
“He was all over Selena the whole time, walking her around by the hand. He kept kissing her,” a source close to the pop star tells reportrs of his birthday PDA with Gomez, 19. “It’s clear she was the best part of the night for him. He is still so in love with her.”
In addition to his friends-and-family bash, Bieber also scored a one-of-a-kind Fisker Karma eco-friendly sportscar as a gift from Braun, with a reported pricetag of $102,000.
Lady Gaga tops DoSomething.org’s list of the Top 20 Celebs Gone Good for the second year in a row, according to the site.
The list, compiled by the volunteer organization, ranks celebrities according to their charitable work and donations.
The “Born This Way” singer held on to her No. 1 spot thanks to her anti-bullying efforts, like her Born This Way Foundation. Gaga is followed by fellow pop star Justin Bieber.
Bieber, who sat at No. 10 on last year’s list, nabs second place in 2011. He launched the Believe Charity Drive, benefiting music education and children’s cancer, and also encouraged fans to participate in Pencils of Promise, which raises money for new schools.
George Clooney comes in third place, followed by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Will and Jada also aren’t the only power couple who give back. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore (despite splitting up in November) and Brangelina also made the list.
(Flying solo, Nick Cannon makes the list without wife Mariah Carey.)

When it comes to Santa Claus, Justin Bieber was never a “Belieber.” The singer reveals in an interview with AOL Music that his mom, Pattie Mallette, saw to it that her son never believed in the bearded gift giver.
“My mom always told me there wasn’t a Santa,” he said. “This was her logic: She thought if I grew up knowing about Santa then finding out he wasn’t real, that it would be like she was lying to me. And then when she told me about God, I maybe wouldn’t believe her.”
Bieber, a Christian, cites his mother’s decision to be “straight up and honest with me all the time.”
Despite his grown-up understanding of Santa, Justin says he’s no Grinch. “I didn’t tell my friends or ruin it for anyone – I was a good kid!” he tells AOL.
The 17-year-old says his holiday plans include heading back to his native Canada to have Christmas Eve dinner with his mom’s family. Then it’s over to dad’s house on Christmas Day to hang out with his little siblings, Jazmyn, 3, and Jaxon, 2. “When it comes to my little sister and brother, I spoil them,” says the Biebs.
As for his own Christmas list, Justin admits there’s not much on it. “To be honest, I really don’t have any Christmas wishes this year… I just wish to be happy and that everyone be healthy in my family,” he says. “And I wish that everybody gets to hear my Christmas album – and hopefully like it!”
He may already have that last one in the bag: Justin’s new album “Under the Mistletoe” is the first Christmas album by a male artist to debut at No. 1 on the charts.
On Wednesday, the Canadian pop star snapped a series of photos featuring his 19-year-old girlfriend wearing a sexy blue two-piece. The couple’s romantic getaway comes just weeks after Bieber, 17, took a DNA test to prove he did not father a child with superfan Mariah Yeater.
This is hardly the first time Bieber and Gomez have engaged in a little poolside PDA. In May, a bikini-clad Gomez was photographed straddling her love of one year while vacationing in Maui, Hawaii.
Will the pair’s relationship stand the test of time? “If the time is right, I definitely want to be married by 25,” Bieber told Women’s Wear Daily in September. “[But] I’m not looking to get married now.”
It’s not all that surprising that Justin Bieber would break a YouTube record, but the teen dream has done it! E! News reports that J Biebs is the first person to garner two billion views on a YouTube channel.
According to Gossip Cop, the 17-year-old “Baby” singer scored 94 million views on his channel in the past month alone. Justin has surpassed Lady Gaga’s YouTube record, which was set when she became the first artist to hit the 1 billion views mark in October 2010.
Justin’s “Baby” video is still the No. 1 video on YouTube, with over 631, 357, 015 views as of October.
But Bieber still has a ways to go if he wants to best Mother Monster online. With over 15 million followers, Gaga’s the most popular celeb on Twitter.
Bieber’s Christmas album, “Under the Mistletoe,” is out now.
Thanksgiving hasn’t rolled around yet, but Justin Bieber is ready to get you in the holiday mood.
The teen singer’s Christmas album, “Under the Mistletoe,” releases Tuesday, and he told CNN that it won’t be your typical compilation of “Jingle Bells” renditions.
“It’s got a lot of original songs that people have never heard before,” Biebs said, “so it’s going to be a really special Christmas album.” Better yet, a portion of the proceeds from each album will go to charity.
“That’s the reason I’m in this position – I’m able to give back,” he says. “There are a lot of kids out there who need help and need food and need schooling, and Pencils of Promises is a charity that I work with that gives to schools in Third World countries. It’s just really special to me.”
Someone else holding a special place in Bieber’s heart is of course his girlfriend, Selena Gomez. He won’t talk much about that date night at the Staples Center that he arranged for her, but he will tell you to keep it moving if you express interest in his other half.
While visiting Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, there was one kid who said “he looks up to me and my music and then he really loves Selena Gomez and he wants to be her boyfriend,” Bieber recalls. “So, I told him to back off.”
The 17-year-old says that despite his hectic schedule, he’s “still able to experience being young and having a normal life. Although people think that it’s super crazy, behind the scenes I still have my friends [and] I still have a team,” Bieber explains. “I think that’s what’s keeping me sane and humble – just being able to have that connection with friends and family.”
Justin Bieber is the romance king of the world!
After spending the day at the beach together on Friday, the singer took girlfriend Selena Gomez on a super-sized date that she’s not likely to forget.
After catching their pal Demi Lovato in concert at the Nokia Theater, the couple then headed next door to L.A.’s Staples Center, where they watched the tear-jerking romance Titanic … alone.
Bieber, according to reports, rented out the entire arena so he and Gomez, 19, could watch Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio in the Oscar-winning classic.
But Bieber, 17, didn’t have to pay for it! The Staples Center’s management reportedly allowed him the arena, which was available for the night, for free because Bieber has sold out the place three times. (Just don’t tell Gomez!)
“Romance isn’t dead,” Bieber Tweeted Friday. “Treat your lady right fellas.”
Selena Gomez is turning 19 on Friday, but the Wizards of Waverly Place star insists she won’t be celebrating with an over-the-top party.
“I think my mom has planned something for me,” Gomez tells E! News. “I didn’t really ask for anything, so I’m basically just going to be at tour rehearsal during the day. Maybe go to dinner at night with my family. Pretty boring.”
Will the Disney star’s boyfriend Justin Bieber, 17, be in attendance? “I actually think he’ll be in Atlanta,” Gomez says. “But that’s OK. We all gotta work.”
No kidding. After a nationwide press tour to promote Monte Carlo (costarring Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy and Cory Monteith), the “Love You Like a Love Song” singer immediately began rehearsals for her upcoming concert tour.
“I’m excited because I don’t think my fans or anyone in general has actually seen me this way,” Gomez says of the tour, which kicks off July 24 in Costa Mesa, Calif. “I’m going to be dancing for the first time. It’s going to be really fun. It’s going to be a different kind of show.”
