Daybreak’s P.M. pop-culture edition take a breathless look at a fender bender involving some kid named Bieber, some good indie films for which to be on the lookout and other things, including a cool mystery music (non)video.
BUMP GOES THE BIEBER: Per People, “Just days after snagging honors at the MTV Video Music Awards for best male video, Justin Bieber hit a slight bump in the road. The pop star, 17, walked away unharmed after he was involved in a minor fender bender in his Ferrari Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Police Department confirms to PEOPLE.” http://bit.ly/ohXNPT
WAS THERE MORE TO IT?: Per Radar, “RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the singer was racing his Ferrari just before the accident. “I just raced @justinbieber down Ventura in his Ferrari I won but a fedex truck got in his way,” House of Pain member Everlast — real name Erik Schrody — tweeted at noon on Tuesday.” http://bit.ly/oTzhIK
SHE-SAID-HE-SAID: Per Us, “The world needs to know Marc Anthony's side of the story. And now, at last, he's ready to share. A month and a half after the Latin crooner and wife Jennifer Lopez, both 42, announced the end of their seven-year marriage, Anthony breaks his silence in an ABC News interview set to air on Good Morning America Thursday.” http://bit.ly/nPPLwa
CINEMA COOL: Per indieWIRE, “The final months of 2011’s specialty release schedule should easily fulfill the needs of any film lover. There’s works from auteurs both international and domestic, a considerable documentary presence, many biopics and the annual plethora of Oscar-bait. And indieWIRE has decided to offer the following list of 30 notable titles to watch for.” http://bit.ly/nuLF9X
WILD THING: Per Australia’s Telegraph, “They’ve played a game of cat and mouse since she landed in Sydney - but here's the first glimpse of Blake Lively during her trip Down Under to meet up with boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. The secretive couple have gone out of their way not to be pictured together since she arrived at the weekend but broke cover at - of all places - Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside, western Sydney.” http://bit.ly/nu4epA
FROWN. NO, WAIT: Per Rolling Stone, “The Beach Boys' Smile, the record originally planned as the follow-up to their 1966 classic Pet Sounds but scrapped mainly due to creative mastermind Brian Wilson's fragile mental health at the time, is set to be officially released for the first time as The Smile Sessions on November 1st.” http://bit.ly/om3tJZ
CAN’T WAIT TO WATCH: Per TMZ, “Well, that didn't take long ... Yes, minutes after T.I. was released from prison, the rapper began shooting a post-prison reality show for VH1 ... TMZ has learned. According to VH1, the show will follow T.I. as he "re-adjusts to life as a free man after being incarcerated for nearly a year in a Federal prison in Arkansas." http://bit.ly/r5dF09
RATINGS, ANYONE?: Per the AP, “The Bravo network said Wednesday it is going ahead with the Labor Day season premiere of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" despite the suicide of a cast member's husband. Brief interviews with cast members about the suicide of Russell Armstrong will precede the premiere, although Armstrong's widow, Taylor - one of the "Real Housewives" - did not participate.” http://apne.ws/nK0lD6
I HATE SNAKES: Per the L.A. Times, “I remember with great clarity the last time I peed my pants. This was not, contrary to later reports, an “accident.” It was a decision I made of sound mind and body and one that I make no apologies for. Despite overwhelming opportunity to release my bladder the way most civilized people do (that would be into a toilet), I made a conscious choice to do otherwise. I offer only two points in my defense; The first is that I was 8 years old. The second, and much more relevant, is that I was in a movie theater watching “Raiders of the Lost Ark” for the very first time. And there was not a chance in hell I was missing a single second of that glorious movie.” http://lat.ms/nuBWd4
POLITICO BLINK: “The website for the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, bills the annual event as a "unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies." It's not exactly your average Brookings Institution or Heritage Foundation symposium, but the festival, which takes place in March, has increasingly become a destination for politicos despite its history of primarily attracting techie and creative types.” http://politi.co/piZ6Eu
AND FINALLY: Today’s mystery music (non)video. http://bit.ly/r7ytiS
