It's looking more and more like SELENA GOMEZ and JUSTIN BIEBER are back on again. Bieber made a surprise appearance at the 2014 SXSW conference in Texas on Sunday night where he got on stage and told the crowd, "This next song goes out to my baby," before singing "As Long As You Love Me." Witnesses say that Justin and Selena hung out together in the beer hall for about another hour after the venue cleared out. Meanwhile, Bieber posted a video to Instagram of him and Selena doing a dance routine to John Legend's "Ordinary People." The clips were apparently filmed this week at that dance studio in Texas where they reportedly spent a couple of hours. (See here) Appropriately enough, Legend's song is all about the ups and downs of a relationship.

Marijuana may be legal in Colorado but Hugo's Barber Shop, about 50 miles northeast of Denver, is refusing to serve customers who smell like pot smoke. The sign on the door of the barbershop reads: "Please do not come in if you smell like marijuana, there are families with kids who don't want to smell it. This is a business not your house, thank you." A lawyer says owner Hugo Corral has the right to refuse service to someone who has been smoking pot, is drunk, or for any other reason as long as it's not an unlawful or unconstitutional reason such as race, religion or gender. Hugo says he imposed the rule because about half of his customers had been showing up smelling like pot and people began to wonder whether they were actually smoking in his shop.

Minnesota State Representative Pat Garofalo apparently isn't a big basketball fan. On Sunday, the Republican sent out a tweet saying, "Let's be honest, 70% of teams in NBA could fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in street crime." When another Twitter user pointed out to Pat that the NFL has had more convicted felons recently than the NBA, he agreed, but noted that NFL rosters are almost 5 times larger. Pat also agreed when another person pointed out that there's more criminals in his profession than the NBA. Pat has also ripped the NBA in the past tweeting, "How about a New ESPN channel that covers all sports except the NBA. Joke players. Joke teams. Joke league" and suggested that watching paint dry was more interesting than the NBA.
