One Direction's new album Midnight Memories debuts at the top of the Billboard 200, selling 546,000 units in its opening week. It marks a history-making moment for the boy band -- they're the first group to have its first three albums debut at #1. They're also the first group to reach #1 with its first three albums since 1967. With Midnight Memories, One Direction became the third pop group to earn multiple half-million sales week since tracking began in 1991. The only other two groups to have more than one album sell over 500,00 copies in one week are One Direction's boy band predecessors, the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync.
Blink-182 have confirmed that they will release a new full-length album of new material next year, their first since 2009's Neighborhoods. (They released a 5-song EP, Dogs Eating Dogs, in December 2012). The trio will headline the 2014 Reading and Leeds Festivals in August, and singer Mark Hoppus tells BBC Radio 1 that they'll have new song to play by then: "We are coming with new material," he promises. "We go into the studio after the holidays, and the goal is to have an album out in time for the festival.
The Sunday World and Daily Star claim Justin Bieber has instructed his guards to watch him while he sleeps. A source tells the sites, "Justin can't be alone at night right now. He is paranoid about fans breaking into his room, and he hears noises all the time. It freaks him out. As well as the ever-present guard in his room and the one outside, he also has two on standby to take over when his men need breaks. All of the burly guys are around 6ft 5in tall and weigh around 250lb. He wants an army of giants protecting him. Justin is now used to having a guard watch him sleep and he wants the arrangement to continue after the tour finishes."

Beyonce was named the most-searched person in 2013 on the online search engine Bing, edging out 2012's list-topper, reality television star Kim Kardashian, who came in second. Women continued to dominate the most-searched list for a second year running, as singers Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Madonna rounded out the top five. Justin Bieber, who ranked second place in 2012, dropped to sixth this year. Rapper Nicki Minaj and pop singer Miley Cyrus, who both made the list in 2012, also were in the top 10, joined by troubled actress Amanda Bynes, who came in at No. 8.
Barbara Walters has released the names of all but the individual she'll deem the most fascinating person of the year during her annual special on December 18, which will be the retiring broadcaster's last-ever.

It'll be interesting to see what that last interview consists of, considering the tiny royal has yet to utter a decipherable word.

Actor Paul Walker was killed in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California on Saturday. Walker had just left a toy drive for his charity, Reach Out Worldwide, and was the passenger in a Porsche driven by his friend Roger Rodus, the owner of the car company that hosted the charity event. The car slammed into a lamppost in an office park and burst into flames. A statement from the Los Angeles County sheriff states that speed was a factor in the crash. Walker was 40 years old and best known for his starring roles in the Fast and Furious movie franchise.

Lindsay Lohan is allegedly planning to sue Rockstar Games, the creators of Grand Theft Auto. According to TMZ, Lohan believes that she was the inspiration for a character who appears on the cover of the game's newest installment, Grand Theft Auto V -- a blonde girl who is chased by the paparazzi and hangs out at Lohan's old haunt, L.A.'s Chateau Marmont Hotel. Now Lohan file a lawsuit against the game makers for using her image without her permission. TMZ says Lohan's lawyers think she could be awarded a large amount in compensation from Rockstar.

Kanye West -- shocker -- lost his cool during an interview with Sway Calloway on Sirius XM's Shade 45 yesterday. West flipped his lid when Calloway suggested he avoid ventures into the fashion industry and instead release his ideas himself. The rapper screamed, "How, Sway? You ain't got the answers, man!" The two then engaged in a shouting match in which West yelled, "I been doing this more than you!" and mocked Calloway's own venture into fashion -- "What's the name of your clothing line? We don't know." After Calloway chastises him, West eventually calms down a little and then launches into a confusing rant tying fashion into the French Revolution, Harriet Tubman and the history of slavery.
Lorde is becoming known for her incisive interviews just as much as she is for her hit songs. The 17-year-old, who has previously criticized Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, recently told Interview magazine, "Around the middle of last year I started listening to a lot of rap, like Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as pop singers like Lana Del Rey. They all sing about such opulence, stuff that just didn't relate to me -- or anyone that I knew." She then adds, "I began thinking, 'How are we listening to this? It's completely irrelevant.'" To be fair, she clearly means the subject matter doesn't relate to her own life, but we're sure the gossip rags will make a hubbub over the "diss" anyway.

Pink and her husband Carey Hart are being sued by a paparazzo who had the bad luck to cross paths with them. The photographer, Boris Issaei, claims that he was physically beaten and humiliated by the couple during an encounter with them back in June. Issaei says he was trying to photograph Pink changing her baby's diaper at the Malibu Country Mart when Hart snapped, " You f**king pedophile," and Pink added, "You're photographing my baby naked." Hart's friend then kicked Issaei in the shin, stomped on his feet and kneed him in the groin. Issaei is suing for assault and battery and destruction of his camera equipment.
Columbia Records announced that Bruce Springsteen will release his 18th studio album, High Hopes, on January 14. The record is a combination of covers, new songs and songs previously performed by the Boss in some format. The album was produced by Ron Aniello, who also worked with Springsteen on his previous release, Wrecking Ball (obviously unrelated to the Miley Cyrus song). Springsteen is accompanied by the E Street Band, along with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. Both Danny Federici and Clarence Clemons, who have both passed away since recording, also appear on the record.

At a One Direction promotional event this weekend, Piers Morgan had the audacity to point-blank ask Harry Styles if he was dating 18-year-old Kendall Jenner, whom the pop star was spotted out on a dinner date with last week. Styles, clearly uncomfortable, replied, "I mean, we went out for dinner, but no, I guess." Morgan refused to let up and asked if it was a budding romance. Styles said, "Dunno," and then someone off-camera helped him out by yelling "Move on!" Styles responded, "Yeah, let's move on shall we!

Video has gone viral of Kanye West ranting about Bruno Mars during his Brooklyn concert Wednesday night. Talking about the MTV Video Music Awards, the 36-year-old rapper complains, "Bruno Mars won all the motherf**king awards and s**t.... What I care about is if you’re an artist and you work hard as f**k and the streets say that you deserve that s**t. Can’t no motherf**king networks try to gas everybody up so they can sell some product with the prettiest motherf**ker out." He also barks, "I still ain't see a video better than Beyoncé video 'till this motherf**king day." Sigh. C'mon Kanye -- give it a rest already.
Former 'NSYNC member Lance Bass announced that he's releasing a solo single, so Justin Timberlake better watch out! (Not really though). Bass, who was best known in 'NSYNC for not really singing many notable parts, shared his big news on his Sirius XM radio show yesterday. He says the single will be called "Walking on Air" (could it be a cover of the recent Katy Perry song of that same name?) and will be out in January, although he's “sure it will leak before then.”
Dave Matthews tells Rolling Stone that he and his band are working on a new album, the follow-up to 2012's Away From the World. Matthews says, "I'm just trying to come up with something that doesn't sound like the past." Other than that, he doesn't give many details, except to say that some of the new songs are ones that they've been playing in concert for a long time. "Whenever I start messing around in the studio, I start writing, so hopefully we can come up with something worth listening to," he adds.
This week's biggest new release is also one of the most anticipated films of the year -- the second installment in The Hunger Games series, Catching Fire, starring Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence. For something a little lighter, Delivery Man is a comedy starring Vince Vaughn, about a man who discovers he's fathered 533 children through sperm donations. Dame Judi Dence stars in Philomena as a woman trying to find the son she gave up for adoption years ago. The documentary Bettie Page Reveals All takes an inside look at the iconic 1950s pinup model.

Chris Brown is going back to rehab, this time by order of the court. Brown appeared in court yesterday with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran, where he was ordered to spend three months in a residential rehab facility and to submit to drug testing. He is also required to perform at least 24 hours of community service each week. Brown voluntarily checked himself into rehab for anger management last month, and a court-obtained document reveals that he was kicked out of the center after a violent meltdown in which he threw a rock through his mother's car.
Lady Gaga's new album ARTPOP topped the charts this week, but it has to be noted that ARTPOP reached the top selling just 258,000 copies. (Compare that to the 792,000 copies of Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 sold in its opening week last week). Are the low numbers symptomatic of the decline of record sales, or a sign that Gaga's appeal is starting to wear off? Regardless, Gaga has hinted that she may be releasing a sequel to ARTPOP. When MSN asked about her touring plans, she replied, "By then, as well, I might have act two out from the album, and it might be nice to play both 'acts' on the tour."
Sean Penn went nuts at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco on Tuesday night when a fan -- not a paparazzo -- tried to take a cell phone picture of him. A witness tells TMZ that Penn grabbed the man's phone, threw it on the ground and screamed, "Do we look like f**king zoo animals?" TMZ has video of the end of the confrontation, when Penn yells after the man, "I'll make you eat the phone... get the f**k out of here!!" Hotel management allegedly asked the man if he wanted to call the police, but he declined and left the hotel.
