Now Trending: Why Justin Bieber and entourage were denied entry to Niagara Falls casino Add to ...

NO DICE

Justin Bieber tried to squeeze in a little gambling over the weekend but was turned away at the door. The Canadian pop star and his ever-present entourage reportedly made an unannounced visit to the Niagara Fallsview Casino on Saturday night. The group’s plans to visit the gaming area went awry when one person in Bieber’s group was unable to provide ID and was denied entry. “When we explained that individual would not be permitted access to the gaming floor, that’s when they decided they would leave together,” said Fallsview Casino spokesperson Greg Medulun. All told, Bieber and his posse spent roughly 10 minutes in the public space near the casino entrance. “He was recognized by some fans,” said Medulun. “There were people certainly interested in seeing him – he’s a pop star – but there was no hysteria.”

SHOCK FACTOR

Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t already seen the latest outing of The Walking Dead, you might want to steel yourself for one of the most disturbing episodes in the series. Sunday night’s new episode of the apocalyptic zombie drama featured a grim plotline that saw the brutal murder of two young (non-zombie) girls – the second one shot in the head by the hardened survivor Carol (Melissa McBride). Several weeks ago, Walking Dead show-runner Robert Kirkman, who co-created the graphic novel on which the series is based, referred to the current fourth season as “definitely one people are going to talk about.”

VACCINATE DEBATE

Reality star Kristin Cavallari has joined the anti-vaccination movement. The 27-year-old ex-Laguna Beach regular recently announced that she chose not to vaccinate her year-old son Camden Cutler for fear it might cause the child to later develop autism. Cavallari and her husband Jay Cutler are currently expecting their second child. The couple’s anti-vaccination stance is in keeping with the campaign by actress Jenny McCarthy, who claims her son Evan developed autism as a result of childhood vaccinations. Both the Centre for Disease Control and The American Academy of Pediatrics highly recommend that all parents have their children against diseases like rubella, measles and the mumps.

DRESSUP DAY

Madonna may not actually be Jewish, but she’s keen for any excuse to wear a corset. The Jewish holiday of Purim took place over the weekend and as a longtime devotee of the Judaic-themed discipline known as Kabbalah, Madonna chose to get dressed up for the occasion. On Sunday, the 55-year-old singer went on Facebook to share several photos showing her dressed up as the character Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. In the shots, Madonna wears a leather corset, luxurious blonde wig and has miniature fire-breathing dragons perched on both shoulders. In years past, Madonna has dressed as a nun, a flapper and Charlie Chaplin to mark the Purim holiday.

INVITE ONLY

KISS original Paul Stanley is ticked at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for not recognizing the replacement members of the heavy-metal rockers. KISS is slated to be inducted into the Rock Hall early next month but the invitation for induction was extended only to Stanley, bassist Gene Simmons and founding members Peter Criss and Ace Frehley; fill-in players Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer, who joined the band in 1992 and 2003, respectively, were not invited to the event. Stanley says that Singer and Thayer should be inducted because “they have been in the band for decades and played on multiplatinum albums and toured the world.” Also slated for induction into the Rock Hall on April 10: Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall & Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens.
