Now this is the Justin Bieber we know and love!

The singer, who is traveling with his mother and a friend overseas, shared a video on Instagram today of his visit to an orphanage in Japan.

"Love these kids!!" the Canadian singing wrote as a caption to him being rather sweet and cute himself:

Earlier in the week, Bieber made a pretty big mistake when he accidentally honored a few Japanese war criminals on Twitter.

But he quickly corrected himself and apologized.

"In Japan and JB just randomly decided to show up at an orphanage and surprise some kids. #SoProud," Patti Mallette Tweeted in response to this showing.

Bieber appears to be on a much improved path these days.

By his own admission, the artist has learned a lot in the past year and he hasn't gotten arrest or ran afoul of the law in any way in weeks.

The star, meanwhile, was just granted a delay in his upcoming Miami DUI trial. His next scheduled sounding date is June 25 and his trial date now scheduled for July 7.

Avril Lavigne has made plenty of bad decisions in her life (she's married to Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger, for Pete's sake), but we can't imagine what the Canadian songstress was thinking when she shot the video for her song "Hello Kitty."

The clip features Avril doing her best Nicki Minaj/Ke$ha impression while perpetuating pretty much every negative Asian stereotype in the book. 

Awful as it is, you may want to watch the video while you can, as it's already been banned from YouTube once as a result of outrage from civil rights groups.

YouTube hasn't issued a statement as to why the clip was temporarily pulled this morning.

While the video is certainly offensive there are millions of hours of offensive footage on YouTube and "Hello Kitty" doesn't seem to violate the site's terms of use in any clear way.

It's likely that Lavigne realized some would find the video racially insensitive and is relying on the negative reaction to drum up some publicity for her new single. 

Avril is no stranger to using stunts to help resurrect her ailing career. Earlier this month the singer staged a fake feud with Miley Cyrus for no apparent reason. 

What do you think? Is the video for "Hello Kitty" offensive?

 

No! It's funny!Yes! What was she thingking?!Who cares? Avril is still alive?!

James Franco sure does love getting shirtless with other men.

We're not judging, we're just taking note of the actor's Bound 3 video alongside a half-naked Seth Rogen and also of a picture that went live this week on his Instagram account.

It's of Franco and Pretty Little Liars star Keegan Allen, both relaxing happily in bed, no clothes to be seen:

Wrote Allen of the photo: "Loved seeing "of mice and men. And @jamesfrancotv showed me how to do a proper bed selfie."

The actors are featured in the film Palo Alto, based on Franco's book. It premieres tomorrow at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Franco, meanwhile, has a history with one of Allen's colleagues on the aforementioned ABC Family hit.

Remember when he sang a parody of Boyfriend alongside Ashley Benson and was also rumored to be dating that Pretty Little Liars beauty?

It's safe to say Jodie Foster has now come out of the closet.

The veteran actress, who hinted very strongly that she's gay in a moving Golden Globes speech last year, married photographer Alexandra Hedison over the weekend.

E! News broke this exciting story, as a rep for the Oscar winner confirms that the year-long couple is now Wife and Wife.

Said Foster in January 2013 at the aforementioned awards ceremony:

"This is not going to be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age – in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and coworkers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her."

She then thanked ex-girlfriend Cydney Bernard, who she dated for two decades and with whom she has two sons, Charles and Kit.

Hedison, meanwhile, dated Ellen DeGeneres for approximately three years before that relationship ended in 2004. Her photography has been shown in New York and Los Angeles and she has a few acting credits to her name as well.

We send the newlyweds all our best wishes!

Another day, another rumored new love interest for sexy beast Robert Pattinson, who's been single and ready to mingle ever since splitting from Kristen Stewart.

This time, for a change of celebrity gossip pace, the 27-year-old Brit is not being linked to Katy Perry ... but to Katy Perry's stylist friend Cleo Wade!

"Cleo is one of Katy's best friends, so Rob has been spending time with their gang," a source told The Sun. "It's early days, but they seem to have good chemistry."

"They spent a lot of time together over the weekend."

Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry are friends (and have been the subject of dating rumors themselves), so this seems believable enough as speculation goes.

However, a source close to Pattinson isn't buying it.

He and Wade "are not dating," according to E!      

The insider noted that while R-Pattz and Wade do in fact run with the same group of friends, the actor is not dating her. He is indeed still very single.

Rob was also romantically linked to London-based artist and painter Nettie Wakefield back in January, only to have a source similarly shoot that down.

Oh well, maybe someday Nettie and/or Cleo.

In random news, Rob loves to skip with cows:
