Justin Bieber walked the red carpet at the Grammy Awards with his zipper pulled down. Rumor has it that it was pulled down by Selena Gomez.
CHARLIE SHEEN called into Dan Patrick's show and said he wants to get back to work on Two and a Half Men. In fact, Charlie said he went back to the studio where they tape the show and started banging on the door, but nobody was there. Charlie says he heals pretty quickly and that he's sober and wants to get back to work because he can unravel pretty quickly. In any case, they're apparently only going to do four of the remaining eight episodes they'd planned for the season and the crew is tweaked because that means they lose four weeks' pay. Meanwhile, Charlie's pregnant porn star, Kacey Jordan, says she's getting death threats, ironically from the pro-life crowd, after saying she was going to Oregon and take care of the matter. Incidentally, Charlie also said he had a new girlfriend.

NFL owners will meet on March 3rd, which is the final day of the current collective bargaining agreement, and it's possible they'll call for a lockout if talks aren't progressing well.
Duluth, Minnesota's 26-year-old Stephanie Lynn Mattinas woke up to see her boyfriend. She also saw her sister and saw that they were sleeping together. This caused Stephanie to, in her words, 'snake out.' Stephanie grabbed a baseball bat and began attacking the pair and stabbed her sister in the face with a piece of wood molding. A downstairs neighbor called police when the fight caused pictures and other items to be knocked off his walls. A responding officer found broken bottles and glass all over the living room floor and a bedroom door kicked off its hinges. It most likely goes without saying that Stephanie had a blood alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit to drive and was arrested.
