Justin Bieber was pulled over yet again by cops in his fast Ferrari, making this his second citation in just six months.
The Baby singer, 18, was given a minor traffic citation around 6:25 p.m. in West Hollywood, the city's sheriff's department tells ET. He was ticketed for for making an unsafe left turn and having an expired registration.
Following the incident, Bieber posted an Instagram photo of police-car lights leaving the scene.
Earlier this year, Bieber was pulled over by a California highway patrolman on the 101 Freeway in San Fernando Valley, Calif. for speeding in his Fisker sports car. The teen heartthrob told police that he was being chased by a paparazzo, and Los Angeles prosecutors later filed charges against the photographer.
Justin Bieber posted this photo on his Instagram, which appeared to be taken from inside his Ferrari
why did Justin's rich ass not renew his tags or get someone from his team to do it?
Hostess Brands Inc. will seek to liquidate the entire company if “enough” striking workers don’t return to work by 4 p.m. Thursday, the company said Wednesday.
Hostess, maker of such iconic brands as Wonder Bread, Twinkies and Ding Dongs, is responding to a strike that began Friday by the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers Union.
No bargaining talks were scheduled for Wednesday or today.
The company, based in Kansas City for many years when it was known as Interstate Bakeries, is in its second bankruptcy reorganization in eight years. It listed assets of $982 million against liabilities of $1.43 billion. A reorganization plan was filed Oct. 10.
“We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike,” said Gregory F. Rayburn, the company’s chief executive.
Union members countered that liquidation might have been the company’s intent for months.
Liquidation would cause the loss of nearly 18,000 jobs around the country, Rayburn said. That would include more than 200 jobs at a bread and bun bakery in
Lenexa where workers walked out Friday afternoon.
The company, now based in Irving, Texas, did not specify how many returning workers would be “enough” to avoid liquidation.
“It is now up to Hostess’ BCTGM represented employees and Frank Hurt, their international president, to decide if they want to call off the strike and save this company, or cause massive financial harm to thousands of employees and their families,” Rayburn said in a release.
The walkouts began after bakery union employees rejected a unilaterally imposed contract that included wage and benefits cuts of 27 percent to 32 percent.
Hurt, the union president, said the strike was necessary because workers were “not willing to take draconian wage and benefit cuts on top of the significant concessions they made in 2004 and give up their pension so that the Wall Street vulture capitalists in control of this company can walk away with millions of dollars.”
Hurt said in a statement published on the union’s website that previous concessions that were supposed to go toward capital investment, product development, plant improvement and new equipment were “squandered in executive bonuses, payouts to Wall Street investors and payments to high-priced attorneys and consultants.”
Hostess requested a bankruptcy hearing on the liquidation motion for Monday.
If the U.S. bankruptcy judge in New York grants the motion, the company said it “will begin to close all of its operations” as early as Tuesday.
“The closures will include the termination of all employees except small, temporary crews to clean, secure and prepare facilities and other assets for sale,” the company said.
Meanwhile, Hostess posted on its site that 24 of its 36 bakeries continued to produce products since the strike began because of work by supervisors and union members who crossed picket lines. Hostess had 55 bakeries when it filed for its first bankruptcy.
As of Wednesday evening, a company spokesman said, most of the bakeries were operating below capacity and 13 were operating “far under capacity.” The company did not identify specific plants.
On Wednesday, more than 570 employees crossed the picket lines nationally, the spokesman said.
The company noted that its largest union, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, had agreed in September to concessions and was continuing to deliver products.
Earlier this week the company said it intended to permanently close its bakeries in St. Louis, Seattle and Cincinnati, eliminating more than 600 jobs.
Hostess announced those closings in response to the strike, but the reorganization plan filed in October indicated the company’s intent to close five plants.
Union officials said bankruptcy filings months ago indicated that the company intended to shutter nine plants.
St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was quoted in an interview Tuesday that he was “told months ago they were planning on closing the site in St. Louis … and there was no indication at that time it had anything to do with the strike the workers were waging.”
Hostess officials claimed that union leaders had misinformed workers that a buyer would step in to keep the Hostess plants running.
But the Hostess bankruptcy filings said there was “significant overcapacity in the baking industry” and its plants fell short of industry standards for efficiency.
The possible demise of Hostess would leave two large bakery enterprises, Bimbo and Flowers, each operating with many bread and snack cake brand names in the United States.
Industry observers said some Hostess properties — especially its more profitable snack cake and modern bread bakeries — would have buyers, but whether or not jobs would be preserved is unknown.

Lotus is a flop. Why isn't Christina Aguilera selling more albums?
The release of her new album Lotus was supposed to be a glorious victory lap for Christina Aguilera. After the dual duds of 2010′s critical and commercial failures Bionic and Burlesque, the once-platinum-plated pop star set out to reinvent herself: She divorced her husband of five years, became a coach on the hit series The Voice, and recommitted herself to her music.
Only part of that plan seems to be working for her. While her visibility factor is way up thanks to the big ratings for The Voice, it’s still bad news at the cash register. Final numbers won’t be in until next week, but right now, album sales tracking service Hits Daily Double is currently projecting Lotus will sell somewhere between 75 and 80 thousand copies in its opening week.
Even if that prediction ends up being on the low side, it’ll still be hard to spin those numbers positively. Bionic was considered a commercial debacle but still moved six figures in its opening frame (selling 110,000 copies out of the gate). What’s worse is that Aguilera’s is projected to finish well behind next generation pop stars One Direction (who will sell well over 500,000 copies of Take Me Home, their second album released this year) and indie R&B darling The Weeknd (who is essentially selling a series of albums that were given away for free online a year ago). Any way you look at it, the results are rough.
But if The Voice is such a hit and the material on Lotus is crafted by the same people who send the likes of Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Pink to the top of the charts, what is stopping people from buying this new album?
The studio talent is certainly there. Lotus features contributions from Max Martin, Shellback, Alex Da Kid, Supa Dups, Claude Kelly, and Lucas Secon, all of whom have had massive hits with a number of pop stars. But despite its pedigree, the Martin/Shellback entry “Your Body,” the album’s first single, is currently languishing in the lower reaches of the Hot 100. Does that mean those A-list names didn’t bring their A-list material to the table? Let’s put it another way: If Christina had recorded Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” would it have been a smash for her?
If the answer is “No,” then perhaps Aguilera carries too much cultural baggage with her. Her personal style has always been a hot topic of conversation, she often fails to come across as particularly likable in interviews, and earlier this year got into a very silly media feud with the lads from the Wanted. But plenty of other pop stars do those same things and manage to get away with it. In fact, in the case of Pink and Minaj, those shoot-from-the-hip moments have arguably made them more popular than they have ever been.
Are people simply tired of Aguilera? The Voice has helped her regain much of the cultural cache she lost in the latter half of the aughts, but does that also mean that it has fulfilled the average Xtina quota? Stars have gotten mixed results from their involvement in reality shows. Among the other judges on The Voice, only Adam Levine has had a true chart-topping hit since he took his place in his spinny chair.
Aguilera’s counterparts on American Idol haven’t done much better; Jennifer Lopez got a bit of a singles bump but little else, and Steven Tyler couldn’t parlay his run into success for Aerosmith (whose first original album in 11 years sold a paltry 65,000 copies in its opening week). Still, Aguilera is on television weekly right now, and you would think that she’d be able to convert more than one half of one percent of that show’s audience into album buyers.
I forsee her having an "Emancipation of Mimi"-esque comeback in the next 3-5 years, but at least for the moment, her music career is done.

Due to be released in the UK on December 16.
Media maven Tyra Banks has coined what may be the newest modeling craze of the decade. Smizing — to smile with one’s eyes — is a speciality of the supermodel-turned-talk-show-host, and her hit reality show America’s Next Top Model brought the fashion insider tip to mainstream photos everywhere.
These days, a profile pic without a smize is like Banks’ TV show without the drama.
And now, Banks is banking on her idea in a mobile way, with the latest addition to her empire, the “Smize Yourself!” app. The app allows users to apply facial morphing technology to enhance the smizes in their own photos. Users receive training via Banks’ voice-over narration. After taking a photo within the app’s face outline, one swipe will adjust the emotion in the picture’s eyes from subtle to exaggerated.
Photos can then be shared on Facebook and Twitter and will be stored in a portfolio within the app.
To Banks, the smizing app isn’t only about perfecting poses, but redefining beauty. Her brand, she says, is about “empowering women from the outside in,” and the app will allow users to “engage fans in something we’re known for.”
And mostly, she says, “Smize Yourself!” is about “having fun while learning.”
“On Instagram and Twitter millions of people send me pictures asking ‘Am I smizing?,’ ‘Can you teach me how to smize?,’ ‘Is it fierce enough?’,” Banks tells Mashable in a conference call Thursday. “It’s about the marketplace … If they are asking for advice, we created an app based on that.”
Banks is a well known presence on social media with almost eight million Twitter followers. Social media, she says, is a source for real-time feedback and constructive criticism from her fans — an important tool for a business woman like herself, she adds.
The model also confesses her inspiration for entering the app world was taken from years of studying business and other start-ups in Silicon Valley. She says apps like Uber or AirBNB are outlets she wished she would’ve have invested in years ago.
Above all, it’s important to remember there are different smizes for every occasion, Banks reminds us. In LinkedIn profiles, smizes should be subtle, she says. For men, they should smize to the side.
And the best place to smize — a sext — because sexiness, Banks says, is in the eyes, in not in revealing too much.
Smize Yourself! is available on iOS for $1.99.
Fans of a certain red-hot TV show: You are gonna wanna sit down for this!
We have it on good authority that two characters on one of our favorite shows are finally going to do the nasty. Soon! And it is going to come at you outta nowhere.
So who is it?
It's a huge plot twist we can't outright spoil, because...Come on, what's the fun in that? But we can tell you that this couple is:
1) Part of the show's main love triangle
2) Has a huge fan following
3) Has plenty of haters, too
4) Has been slowly building for more than three seasons
5) Is part of a popular show with rabid fans
Selena Gomez spent the last day blocking her phone numbers and other communication devices so Justin Bieber cannot contact her ... TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Selena wants no contact with Justin, so whatever they tried hashing out during their sit-down last Sunday didn't work. She has blocked her phone (which includes texting). For some reason, she's still following Justin on Twitter, but we're told she's blocked him on all forms of contact.
And ... we've learned ... the breakup absolutely, positively involved another woman -- though our sources didn't know which one. There's been speculation that it's a Victoria's Secret model. We don't know for sure if it's her, but we know it involves another woman.

Irene Adler, one of the most revered female characters in the Sherlock Holmes stories, may be coming to Elementary sooner than we think.
Following last week's reveal that Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) had recited her name over and over in his drug-addled past, it seemed more than likely that we'd soon see her in the flesh.
So, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Rob Doherty to find out when!
Adler, oftentimes depicted as a love interest for Holmes over the years, will appear before the end of Season 1, Doherty assures us. "Initially we had a back nine [episodes], and now we have a back 11, which is an embarrassment of riches," he says. "So somewhere in this back half of the season we'd like to see her in some way, shape or form.
"If people are beginning to suspect there may have been some sort of romantic involvement, I'd say that's in the ballpark," Doherty continues. "I just finished writing Episode 12, and we'll get a few bigger pieces of the puzzle in that episode. We'll find out a little bit more about Irene, and the specifics of their relationship, and how they relate to his spiraling out of control in London."
The producers have yet to start writing for the actual character, but Doherty says they're already discussing what traits this Adler would need to be yin to Holmes' yang. "As we build our Irene and we get into more detail, obviously, she has to be fairly unique, in that someone like Sherlock found himself attracted to her," he says. "As we've said in the past, he doesn't really like to get close to anyone, let alone women. The way we've depicted him, to this point in the season, he's not an especially romantic kind of guy."
How Elementary won't go there with Sherlock and Watson.
That's an understatement. In the series premiere, the CBS series established that he had arrangements, not relationships, with women to satisfy the physiological exercise of sex, as opposed to getting emotionally involved. "We have to be true to that and recognize that's how he is now, and that's probably how he was for quite some time," he says. "Irene has to have a certain strength. I see someone who has to have managed to surprise Sherlock in small, but significant ways. He's so easily bored by the predictable.
"I hope it doesn't sound like I'm describing someone zany," Doherty quickly adds. "That's the opposite of what we would want."
Following Made in Jersey's quick demise, fans hoped its star Janet Montgomery could easily slide into the role. (Adler even hails from Jersey, and Montgomery has had some practice with taking on that American dialect.) "Her name has come up," Doherty reveals. "I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not as familiar with her work as I should be at this point, but I've never heard anything but great things about her. So she's definitely somebody I would want to take a look at. I hear she's a wonderful actress. I've seen pictures, and I know she's pretty easy on the eyes, so that helps."

Elementary airs Thursdays at 10/9c on CBS.
The fashion icons get ready for prom.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian had better watch out - the Jenners are coming.
The reality stars' fresh-faced half-sisters Kendall and Kylie are fast building a fanbase to rival their hugely popular big sisters.
And it seems the pair have an advantage over their big sisters - with budding careers as models.
Young models Kendall and Kylie were picked to be the faces of a range of prom and pageant dresses by designer Sherri Hill.
The teen reality stars modelled a huge selection of dresses all embellished with sequins and featuring masses of tulle.
'Hi everyone. Just wanted to share some more pics from our Sherri Hill photo shoot,' Kylie wrote on her website on .
'Kendall and I got to wear the most AMAZING dresses and I’m so excited for you all to see how the final images turned out. I love getting glammed up with my sissy! So much fun :)'
According to Promgirl.com, Sherri Hill is the 'go-to' designer for homecoming, prom and pageant evening wear.
'Her unparalleled design achievements in the pageant industry include many current and past winners and contestants,' the site boasts. 'Eight of the Top Ten Miss USA 2009 finishers were wearing a Sherri Hill gown including the winner.'
The creations, which are also a favourite with pop-stars Selena Gomez and Carrie Underwood, start at $400 and rising up to $1200 for some of the more elaborate numbers.
In September the sisters also strutted their stuff in New York on the runway for the Evening Sherri Hill show.
Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 15, walked effortlessly in their sky high heels, also did the traditional curtain call with the designer at the end of the catwalk show.
The event, which took place at Trump Towers, was also attended by The Donald himself, owner of the Miss Universe pageant.
And Kylie and Kendall, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, also recently announced that they are getting into the clothing design game with an eponymous clothing line.
Aimed at tweens and teens, it will debut next spring and include shirts, pants, shorts and accessories.
'We always get asked what we are wearing, so when we got the chance to design our line with Majestic Mills, we were thrilled,' the girls told People. 'We have been really excited by the creative design process from the start because we love fashion, and we can’t wait to share it with our fans!'
THE TELEVISION EVENT OF THE YEAR
"LIZ & DICK" WORLD PREMIERE
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25 9.8c - LIFETIME
If things had gone well, we would be sitting down to a Barbara Walters interview of Lindsay Lohan on Friday night. The high-drama star canceled a planned tete-a-tete with "20/20," intended to promote the upcoming, eagerly anticipated TV movie, "Liz and Dick."
Instead, viewers will have to wait for the movie. And so the reinvention of this former Disney child star takes another turn.
"Liz and Dick," premiering Saturday on Lifetime, is a glittery festival of great photographs and moving images paying homage to the iconic romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
No matter what you think of the script (which is a medium-grade made-for-TV movie), the look of the piece carries it. No matter what you think of the actors (Lohan as Taylor, Brant Bowler as Burton), the great period stylings, not to mention "Cleopatra"-period costumes, make this jewel-encrusted, cocktail-soaked, often tragic saga a rip-roaring good time.
Exquisite black-and-white photos re-creating the famously passionate chemistry of Taylor and Burton launch the story. Long before TMZ, popping flashbulbs accompanied their every move.
The film opens in flashback, with voice-over commentary by Burton (Bowler), reading a letter to the woman he loved across a lifetime: "I fell for you the moment I saw you, all those years ago at a party in Hollywood. You were everything I ever wanted even when you looked at me with utter disdain. I thought you were just luscious."
A medley of bad behaviors are re-enacted by the stars, each married to someone else at the time of their 1961 meeting on "Cleopatra." "Arrivederci Eddie," a headline blares as Eddie Fisher is dropped from Liz's life. The entire planet seemed transfixed by their torrid passions.
Sitting for an interview years later, the pair recounted their stormy romance.
"I was the monster who broke up America's sweethearts," she says.
"She's talking about Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds," he explains.
"They know who I'm talking about!"
The film captures their impossible allure. His voice! Her eyes! And their impossible temperaments — the fighting, the making up, the expensive baubles.
"Screw it, they want a show, let's give them a show," she says.
It's a traveling show, as the high-living lovers jet from Europe to Mexico to London and New York, their manager chasing after them to warn that they're broke. The pair married in 1964, divorced in 1974, remarried the following year and ended their second marriage in 1976.
Hollywood history is related through the pair's respective Oscar wins and losses. A clever re-enactment of the 1966 film "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" is set against the couple's real-life boozing and bickering.
It's difficult to believe, but the romance was so heated and the publicity so great, the Vatican issued a pronouncement against the couple, accusing them of "erotic vagrancy."
Lohan is stunning (in violet contact lenses) as Liz, if unbelievable when talking about her weight problem. Bowler, a New Zealander, is dashing as the Welshman Burton. They hint at the right chemistry.
Lohan's personal dramas are ongoing gossip fodder but seem small next to the wild and public traumas of Liz and Dick. Contemporary kerfuffles reported in TMZ — reports of confrontations with her fans, a car accident or parole violation in connection with a shoplifting incident — pale in comparison to the superstar Lohan is playing.
Earlier today, JoJo announced the release date of her ‘Agape’ mixtape and now we have the first taste of the set in the form of a new song. The Neo Soul-styled ‘We Get By’ showcases yet another side of the versatile young singer as she strives to define her voice and her artistry.
‘Agape’ will be available as a free download just ahead of Christmas on December 20th. Get a glimpse of what JoJo has in store for you later this year when you listen to ‘We Get By’ below:
Whenever JoJo shares new music, she sounds more mature and complex as an artist. Her voice entails so many different colours and those facets shined on ‘We Get By’. Honestly, what else can demand from JoJo? Her tone is unique, she has a broad range and she knows how to use it while singing great music!
Matt Damon: Fame 'Emotionally Retards' Actors, Would Discourage Daughters From The Biz
By Jessica Wakeman , November 11, 2012
The Hollywood Reporter held a roundtable discussion for six "leading men," including Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx and Matt Damon. All of them are both thoughtful and humble. But interestingly, Matt Damon emerges as the guy most critical of the business and with the most feminist observations about how Hollywood stamps an expiration date on its women.
While discussing the childrens' involvement in the acting business, Damon, whose daughters are pre-school age, pipes up that he wants to keep his kids out of Hollywood.
I would try to steer my daughters away from acting. Women are in a different business than we are. It is just brutal for women. For us, the roles get really good at 40 and beyond. And that's really when you start doing your best work.
Gere then interjects with a but-what-about-Susan-Sarandon? comment, but Damon continues undetered, comparing aging actresses to aging athletes who are no longer the hot shit:
It's like being a pro athlete: I have friends who were athletes and are now retired. They're my age, and they talk about the frustration of knowing more about their craft and suddenly they're not able to play anymore.
The actors also discussed how fame changes a person, particularly regarding how people treat you differently. Damon continued to be critical of how the business works:
When we started [writing] Good Will Hunting, I was 22 and Ben [Affleck] was 20, and it came out when I was 27 and Ben was 25. I always had this theory that you kind of retard emotionally at the moment you become famous: It's not that you change; the world changes in its relationship to you. So your entire reality shifts. And that's a jarring experience and hard to prepare for.
It's certainly an interesting theory and would explain the likes of, say, Chris Brown and Britney Spears, who always seem like overgrown high school sophomores. "Retard[ing] emotionally" at 27 isn't the worst thing in the word to happen to you, Matt Damon.

Reese and Finch Are Forced to Seek Help from an Unlikely Source, on “Person of Interest”
“Critical” – The Machine gives Finch and Reese the number of a brilliant surgeon, but they soon discover that a resourceful third party has raised the stakes for this POI, forcing them to turn to an unlikely source for help, on PERSON OF INTEREST, Thursday, Nov. 15 (9:01 – 10:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
I’d still hit it
Guess who else is back tonight!

"I hated the song and my outfit...I don't think it really mattered to Britney that I didn't like it."
Clearly annoyed by the less-than-stellar critiques she received, the 13-year-old told reporters and pretty much anyone who would listen that she hated the song chosen for her (Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”) and said as much to her mentor Britney.
Beatrice also hated her outfit, and threw on a cap at the last-minute, presumably to feel more comfortable, but possibly as a middle finger to the show’s styling team as well.
But it was Beatrice Miller who won the prize for being the night's most outspoken contestant: The 13-year-old singer made no secret of the fact that she—like Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid—wasn't exactly feeling Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," which mentor Britney Spears had chosen for her.
"I don't really like slow songs," said Miller, who finished in 10th place last week. "I listen to Nirvana and Radiohead, not really the divas."
"My song was really boring,"she added,"and I've been telling [Spears] that from day one. She just said, ‘Get through it and try to connect with the song.' I don't think it really mattered to her that I didn't like it."

sabotaged by your own mentor :(
Sunday - Ive noticed alot of people on here like Red/Ruby, she's not bad but i dont care for her storyline and i guess alot of people feel the same cz i think thats series low for the show :/ and poor Good Wife it deserves better ratings.
Monday - I actually like Partners idc, so im sad. and my top 3 for DWTS is Kelly, Melissa and Apollo.
Tuesday - ?They should have left Happy Endings on Wednessday, and bye Don't Trust the B :/
Wednesday - Of course XFactor rose, there was no The Voice or The Voice repeat on. im sorry but xfactor is a complete mess, the contestants are bad and they all mostly get praised? like Diamond and Beatrice wtf? and Britney is soo horrible lol all she says is you were amazing and you nailed it.
When two pop sensations like Taylor Swift and One Direction's Harry Styles join forces, does the universe implode?
We might find out tonight on The X Factor, because a source close to a contestant tells us that Styles has been spotted hanging out with Swift as she prepares to perform on tonight's live show.
"Harry is there with her now. She is doing rehearsals this afternoon. And he is in her group," the witness tells E! News. "He watched her onstage going through her performance. He was sitting with her mom and the rest of her entourage."
Swift and Styles seem to really be enjoying their time together. "After she finished, he went up to the stage. They were joking and laughing," the sources says. "He picked her up and threw her over his shoulder and carried her off."
Sounds like Harry Styles may have taken over the sweeping-Swift-off-her-feet duty away from Connor Kennedy.
Screw this, I need Liam gifs please.
Rihanna's upcoming UK stadium tour is expected to sell out quickly.
The singer announced a handful of stadium dates for 2013 as part of her 'Diamonds' world tour, with tickets due to go on sale from November 20.
However, pre-sale tickets searches have rocketed by 700% on viagogo, meaning demand for the shows is likely to be very high.
"Rihanna's diamonds are shining brighter than ever as she eclipses fellow female stars in the popularity stakes," said Ed Parkinson, viagogo spokesperson.
"With her new album released next week we expect demand to increase even further as fans try to get a ticket to one of the hottest gigs of 2013."
The demand increase is triple that of Madonna and Lady GaGa's respective pre-tour searches, with both artists touring earlier this year.
Moreover, experts predict that tickets for all 21 of Rihanna's European shows could sell out in little under six minutes come November 20.
Rihanna's seventh studio album Unapologetic will be released worldwide on November 19.
