Justin Bieber tells Rolling Stone he feels he carries himself "in a more manly way," his manager claims he's the most mature kid in the world and the mag's cover proclaims him to be "HOT READY LEGAL." Do you agree with any of these statements?

Andrew Breitbart died and the mainstream media immediately went into gracious mode, and then into lionizing mode—he wasn't just not all bad, he was a real patriot, a true American.
Donna Brazile unwisely tweeted that he was a genius.
No need to dance on his grave while his shocked family watches, but NO need to pretend he was anything less than a complete asshole.
Above, sexy Chace Crawford is mighty fine in Mexico, as spotted in Life & Style (March 12, 2012). Below, the same issue praises the pecs of Derek Hough:
I know it's crazy, but I think Redfoo from LMFAO is superhot. I don't love his clothes or hair, but I can look beyond that; beyond that, and beyond the fact that he's really just the Rockwell of '12. As spotted in Rolling Stone (March 1, 2012):
More after the jump...
As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.
Of whom are you more jealous?

Madonna fans were enraged when Rolling Stone last week called Lady GaGa the Queen of Pop. Never mind that they were only using information from the past two years, years in which Madonna hadn't released any songs!
But now they've righted the imagined wrong and via reader poll have rechristened Madonna as Queen—which is as it should be.
The list is bizarrely diverse in musical style considering this is the Queen of POP we're talking about.
Which are in the right spots, which are in the wrong spots, which have no business on this list and which are missing altogether?
(2) Lady GaGa
(3) Britney Spears
(4) Tina Turner
(6) Aretha Franklin
(7) Katy Perry
(9) Elton John
(10) Mariah Carey
Who was your first really HOT crush when you were a kid/teen?
For me, it was probably Lorenzo Lamas (it doesn't still apply), though many others come to mind as well. And I recall stashing a Rolling Stone shot of a nearly-naked Sting from Dune under my bed to gaze at, more because he was nearly-naked than because he was Sting (not my usual type).
I await your input...
The cast of BearCity recreates that True Blood cover of Rolling Stone for Next. That's honey they're covered in, you pervert.
I can't believe I'm going to say this but...an interesting interview with Meghan McCain by Rachel Maddow last night. McCain's getting scorched for coming out and saying what many in the Republican establishment are saying behind-the-scenes, namely that Christine O'Donnell is a "nutjob."
But what interests me is that she went on to talk a bit about President Obama and Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I give McCain credit for openly—and, clearly, sincerely—disagreeing with and being hurt by her father's homophobic stance on DADT (and all other gay issues). In the past, I've been unimpressed with her for focusing on what Obama hasn't done when her father—and her party—is actively, aggressively working against gay issues. But she doesn't harp on that here, instead saying politicians should be held responsible for their failings but admitting she really has no answers as to how. (She doesn't advocate not voting for them again, protesting or other measures suggested by Maddow.)
Also interesting is that Ms. McCain seems to think that Obama has been given a free pass for his gay-rights disappointments. I'm glad Maddow pointed out to her that many in the gay community have given him no such free pass (choice comment at Joe.My.God. yesterday: "Obama can't tell his black ass from his white elbow," and it goes downhill from there on a daily basis in the comments section), but I think the central question remains: What do we do about it?
I don't think there are easy answers. I know AmericaBlog and others have advocated not to give the Democrats money. Some have argued that they'd never vote for Obama again or that they wouldn't vote for any Democrats, or that they wouldn't vote at all. Dan Choi's sincerely, passionately applied tactic is to embarrass the president by turning up the heat via civil disobedience and high-profile demonstrations; these things have worked in the past in other areas.
I'm not attracted to any of these remedies, but like Meghan McCain—and unlike those who use the word "Obamabots" in every other sentence—I don't have all the answers and don't pretend to.
