1. Justin Bieber pees in a mop bucket, disses Bill Clinton
Like Dennis the Menace and Bart Simpson before him, pint-sized rapscallion Justin Bieber just can't stop getting into trouble. The pop star's latest controversy? A video, obtained by TMZ, in which he urinates in a mop bucket at a night club before spitting some choice expletives at a picture of former president Bill Clinton. "We the f***ing wild kids!" adds one of Bieber's companions, setting a bar for "wild" celebrity mischief that's as lame as it is disgusting. [TMZ]

2. Daft Punk teams up with Durex for "Get Lucky" condoms
Today in corporate synergy: Daft Punk has teamed up with Durex to release a line of condoms cross-branded with their single "Get Lucky," which you might remember as that song everybody listened to for a couple weeks before totally forgetting it ever existed. Though the condoms are currently only being sold individually, there's always the chance that the band will eventually release them in boxes — branded, we presume, as "One More Time."

3. Lindsay Lohan is a lot like Marilyn Monroe, says The Canyons director Paul Schrader
Linday Lohan's acting career has hit a bit a rough patch. But according to director Paul Schrader — who, as the director of her upcoming The Canyons, has no reason to wildly overpraise her — Lohan is vastly underrated. Indeed, she's just like Marilyn Monroe! In an article at Film Comment, Schrader said Lohan, like Monroe, has "something more, that thing that keep you watching someone on screen, that thing you can't take your eye off of." Which proves he's never seen I Know Who Killed Me. [E! Online]

4. Comedy Central will roast James Franco
Comedy Central's undying commitment to roasting everyone who will tolerate the attention has found its latest target: James Franco. Franco himself chose to make the announcement on Instagram last night, posting a brief, self-shot video in which he said, "Hey, you, what's up? I'm going to be roasted on Comedy Central." "But how will they find something to mock about James Franco?" asked no one. [Vulture]

5. Snooki has some baby advice for Kate Middleton
In a kindhearted gesture that is clearly, in no way, a desperate grab for cultural relevancy, Jersey Shore alumnus Snooki has written an open letter filled with advice for soon-to-be royal mom Kate Middleton. In the letter, Snooki advises that Middleton adjust to the lack of sleep by doing her makeup and putting her tiara on as she takes care of her "royal golden nugget" — proving there really are nicknames more irritating than Snooki.
