It looks like JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ are off again. Bieber uploaded a photo of himself with model Yovanna Ventura that shows her sitting behind him with her legs wrapped around him and her hands around his chest and another shot of them hugging and cuddling in the dark. Yovanna also uploaded her own photos of them together, with one captioned: "Sweetest guy ever @justinbieber." Selena later shared cryptic text messages on Instagram such as, "valuable life lesson. The moment you compare yourself [to another woman], it weakens you, and I'm not here for that. Once you know that reality [and] claim your space, your life becomes easier." (See Bieber's photo here)

- Brazilian soccer fans aren't taking their loss to Germany well and some are calling MICK JAGGER a jinx after he picked them to win. Mick had also backed a number of other nations who, almost without fail, were immediately eliminated. During a recent Rolling Stones concert in Rome, Mick said Italy would advance to the knock out stage, but they lost to Uruguay. He then told fans in Lisbon that Portugal would win its first World Cup, only for them to be eliminated. Jagger also backed England's disastrous World Cup effort. Jagger also supported a string of losers at the 2010 World Cup, including the U.S., England and, again, Brazil.
Wal-Mart is apologizing after their website advertised a decorative poster that would supposedly "make a great addition to your home or office." That poster featured the front gate of the Nazi's infamous Dachau concentration camp, with the slogan "Arbeit Macht Frei." which translates to "Work Makes You Free." It was sold on the websites of several stores and Wal-Mart said it was "horrified to see that this item was on our site". One Sears customer was shocked to see that a list of "similar products" to the concentration camp poster included double wall ovens. Sears also apologized and both stores removed the item.

Pamplona, Spain's annual San Fermin festival is currently underway, which includes the famous 'Running of the Bulls.' Yesterday, two people were gored by the bulls, leaving them in serious condition. One of them was Chicago's Bill Hillmann, who's a Hemingway aficionado and travels to Pamplona every year to take part in the festivities. If Hillmann's name sounds familiar it's because he's the co-author of the book "How to Survive the Running of the Bulls."
