JUSTIN BIEBER BOMBS AT BOX OFFICE
The performer's second concert documentary Believe is turning in a dismal performance at the Christmas box office, where it has earned only $3.1 million in its first three days. On Friday, it fell below $1 million to $790,000 for a 14th place finish.
Believe is now only expected to take in $4.5 million over the course of its five-day debut (Wednesday through Sunday), including a meek weekend haul of $2.2 million. Granted, the movie is said to have cost only $5 million to make, but Believe will do only a fraction of the business that Bieber's Never Say Never enjoyed in February 2011.
BRITNEY OPENS IN VEGAS
The 21-song show, attended by Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus felt like a raging nightclub, with hard beats and lasers firing all different directions. "I thought she killed it," Jersey Shore's Pauly D said after the show. It featured hits, phenomenal dancers, top-of-the-line production, and a lot of lip-syncing.
STAY AT THE SUPERBOWL LIKE A NFL PLAYER
For fans attending the Super Bowl and looking for the ultimate experience, New York Giants rookie Cooper Taylor has an offer for you.
The reserve safety is renting his condo for Super Bowl XLVIII week, meaning a lucky fan in town for the big game can spend the week living like an NFL player. Taylor told the New York Post that he's disappointed the Giants won't be playing in the Super Bowl, but because he'll have that time off he and his girlfriend figured it'd be a good opportunity to take a vacation.
“We thought it would be the best time to get out of the city and go on vacation because that week will be a madhouse.”
Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your life for another holiday. Words could never describe how eternally grateful I am for the opportunity to share my life with you on the air. Without you listening, I would just be a weirdo talking to myself!
Please be safe as you are visitng with family and friends this week! We'll be back together Thursday with your regular Z Music!
