Argentina thinks Justin Bieber should be in jail.
An Argentine judge ordered the arrest of pop star Justin Bieber if he sets foot in the country after the singer failed to face questions about an alleged assault at a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013, a court secretary said on Friday.
Local photographer Diego Pesoa accused Bieber and one of his bodyguards of lashing out at him when he tried to take a picture of the star as he left the club in the capital’s trendy Palermo Hollywood neighborhood, states Reuters.
The Argentine judge issued a warrant calling for Bieber to immediately be placed in detention.
The 2013 incident happened near a Buenos Aires nightclub, where the local photographer says Bieber sent his bodyguards to assault him after he tried to take a picture.
Bieber has since refused to report for questioning on the allegations, states the website avclub.com.
According to Gawker: “Canadian by birth but a true cosmopolitan of misconduct, Bieber is accused of ordering his bodyguards to beat a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013. Since then, Bieber has failed to return to the country for questioning, resulting in yesterday’s request for ‘immediate detention.'”
The sister of slain Tejano singer Selena has reassured fans they won’t be “freaked out” by a new project featuring the hologram of her late sibling because the technology is amazing, states hollywood.com.
The project is being called “Selena the One,” states CNN.
Selena the One “will release new songs and videos, will collaborate with current hit artists, and aims to go on tour in 2018,” said a statement on Selena’s Facebook page.
The sister, Suzette Quintanilla, has given her blessing to plans for the live show that will feature the image of Selena, who was killed 20 years ago.
According to hollywood.com, Quintanilla is convinced fans will love the tasteful technology.
She tells Billboard.com, “By no means is this something that’s creepy or weird. A lot of the new fans that did not get to experience what Selena was about hopefully will be able to get a sense of her with this new technology that’s going to be coming out.”
Suzette reveals she and her family members were approached last year (2014) by bosses at Acrovirt, a company that specializes in a technology called Digitized Human Essence – hologram technology.
Selena’s sister adds, “It’s not about replacing Selena in any shape, way or form. It’s just something to help her legacy continue growing.”

What is a “conjugal visit” in prison?
Wikipedia: “A conjugal visit is a scheduled period in which an inmate of a prison or jail is permitted to spend several hours or days in private with a visitor, usually his/her legal spouse. The parties may engage in sexual intercourse. The generally recognized basis for permitting such visits in modern times is to preserve family bonds and increase the chances of success for a prisoner’s eventual return to life after release from prison. Additionally, they serve as an incentive to motivate inmates to comply with the various day-to-day rules and regulations of the prison, and to avoid any infringement which might disqualify them from having a conjugal visit.”
CNN speaks with Afton “Star” Burton, a woman who is set to become the future Mrs. Charles Manson.
According to Fox News, the president committed “verbal rape.”
When Fox News wants to criticize blacks, do they find black people to do it?
President Obama‘s comments about Christians getting on their “high horse” were apparently so offensive to columnist Star Parker that, on Sean Hannity‘s show, she called them “verbal rape.”
She explained, “We were not expecting it, nobody wanted it, it was horrible to sit through, and after it was over we all felt like crap.”
Geraldo Rivera found that to be too “harsh,” but Parker insisted that that’s what it was.
Responding to criticism that a cartoon depicting undocumented immigrants coming through a window to share Thanksgiving dinner with a white family was racist, an Indiana newspaper edited out the stereotyped immigrant’s mustache apparently to make the cartoon seem less racist.
