JUSTIN BIEBER was booed after he walked off stage for the second time on his South America tour. This time, Bieber walked off in Buenos Aires due to food poisoning. Bieber told the crowd, "I'm not feeling too good, I think I'm out of energy," and then apologized and blew a kiss before walking off the stage with his head hung low. Bieber later posted a "selfie" on Twitter showing himself receiving intravenous fluids. His manager, Scooter Braun, said Bieber's food poisoning was so bad that he spent eight hours on an IV drip before Sunday night's show, and that doctors advised him to cancel, but he didn't want to disappoint his fans. Bieber's next concert is tonight in Santiago, Chile.

The holiday season is here and so are the holiday scams. The biggest scams to watch out for this holiday season are amazing discounts from unknown websites that ask for your credit card info. Needless to say, don't give it to them. There are also scam e-mails from what appear to be major stores. However the scam tip-off is that the store name is misspelled. As always, be careful about clicking on links in text, e-mail or Facebook feeds. Another big scam is the bogus gift card offer. If you get an offer of a $25 card for only $10 and they ask for a bunch of personal information...it's a scam! If you've already bit on one of these deals, call your credit card company and let them know ASAP.

The bomb squad arrived and determined the device was phony, but it was the real deal when police tracked Smith down at a Burger King and arrested him. During questioning, Smith tried to leave the interview room and had to be handcuffed, before telling detectives that he left the fake bomb on the counter because his wife "pissed him off."
