That party at JUSTIN BIEBER'S place was more than just noisy. Bieber made all his guests sign a confidentiality agreement, which TMZ got a look at. It said that everyone in attendance "agreed not to tweet, text, phone, Facebook, record, write or in any other manner spill the beans on what went on inside" or else they'd have to fork over $3 million - "no trial, no arguing, just pay up." It was referred to as a "Gatsby party," although it wasn't clear whether it was actually a themed event inspired by the book. In any case, someone spilled the beans, saying the place was filled with naked chicks as far as the eye could see. There were at least 20 "big booty" strippers and the girls who weren't strippers felt self-conscious wearing clothes, so they stripped down too. Bieber made it rain all night, dumping more than $10,000 in cash. Celebrities on hand included Chris Brown, Floyd Mayweather, T.I., Trey Songz, and Snoop Dogg.
Apparently believing there's a lack of singing competition shows, ABC is getting in on the action with a show called RISING STAR.

Florida 'Stand Your Ground' killer George Zimmerman was arrested again yesterday following a domestic altercation with his girlfriend. The girlfriend called 911 and told police that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her face and broke a bunch of her stuff. Zimmerman also called 911 to say his girlfriend is "going crazy." Zimmerman says he called 911 so everyone would know the truth about what happened. He also said she's pregnant and, if that's true, that would upgrade the charges to a felony. Zimmerman is being held without bail.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Erik Walden has been suspended one game for ripping off the helmet of the Tennessee Titans' Delanie Walker and head-butting him during the second quarter of Thursday's game.
A Cleveland Wal-Mart has set up several bins for a holiday food drive. The food drive isn't to benefit a local charity, but the store's own employees. A sign next to the bins reads: "Please donate food items so associates in need can enjoy Thanksgiving dinner." A company spokesman defended the food drive, saying it's evidence that employees care about each other. Apparently, Wal-Mart doesn't care about them as they turned a profit of $15.7 billion last year and the Wal-Mart heirs have as much wealth as the bottom 40 percent of Americans combined.
