Look into Miley Cyrus ' pixie peepers: innocent lass Hannah Montana is gone. "I've grown up," Miley, 20, tells the Daily Mail in a chat about her "We Can't Stop" vid, which has a drug reference. "We like to party / Dancing with Molly," sings Miley. Molly is a slang term for the drug ecstasy.

Pop swain Justin Bieber has been taking a beating in the press lately for a rash of delinquent behaviors. So what do you do when your life is going to hell in a mop bucket? You pull your big-boy pants halfway up and put on a great show. That's exactly what Bieber did Wednesday night in front of a frantic young crowd at the Wells Fargo Center. This is the same Believe Tour that brought Bieber to town eight months ago. Same set list. Same spectacle, including his entrance: lowered from the rafters while harnessed in gigantic wings like an archangel with sunglasses.

JUSTIN BIEBER can cross another item off his bucket list: Peeing in one.

( Note to Philly nightclub owners: The Biebs "performs" here on Wednesday.) TMZ.com released a video of Bieber's antic - would it be fair to say the footage was leaked?

THE LAST day of school meant something different for everyone in my home. For my 8-year-old, Little Solomon, the end of school meant freedom from the tyranny of homework, bedtime and sitting still in math class. For my 11-year-old daughter, Eve, president of her fifth-grade class and co-founder of their Justin Bieber fan club, the end of school meant joining her female classmates for a good cry. And though a male student helpfully pointed out that they'd be apart for only three months, the Beliebers ignored his boyish naiveté and continued crying while Justin sang a sufficiently sappy song in the background.

A photog named Jeffrey Binion is suing Justin Bieber and one of his bodyguards, Hugo Hesny , claiming he was attacked when he tried to snap the singer outside Miami's Hit Factory recording studio. According to TMZ, the suit claims Hesny threw Binion against a wall and grabbed him by the throat. Hesny then showed off his (no doubt awesome-looking) holstered handgun, while a second goon took the memory card from Binion's camera. "Bieber's violent behavior toward photographers must end," Binion's lawyer, Russell S. Adler , tells TMZ. Adler claims Hesny doesn't have a Florida permit to carry a concealed weapon.

BETWEEN natural disasters and man-made disasters (leaving aside the science and politics that some natural disasters are man-made disasters), one day there might be a channel on cable, YouTube or beamed directly into your brain programmed solely with benefit concerts. Going back to the Concert for Bangladesh in 1971, there have been a lot of these big-name fundraisers over the years, for a variety of causes. The No Nukes Concert (1979) is self-explanatory. A series of Secret Policeman's Other Ball concerts raised money for Amnesty International.
