Liza Minnelli won’t fit Toronto concert into her busy schedule

First Barbara Walters cancelled her Toronto speaking engagement (it was supposed to take place last Tuesday) because of a bad case of bronchitis—or, more likely, because she was about to undergo heart surgery. Now Liza Minnelli is snubbing Toronto, backing out of her October concert at the Sony Centre due to “scheduling conflicts.” Because six months is apparently not enough time to make alternate arrangements.

Justin Bieber seduces Tina Fey on SNL

Our new overlord Justin Bieber appeared on Saturday Night Live over the weekend in a sketch that’s best described as the prelude to a bust on To Catch a Predator. The premise: host Tina Fey plays a lonely teacher who crushes on her student, played by Bieber. In Fey’s dream sequences, Bieber serenades her with such romantic ditties as “We’ll check Filene’s and get chunky jewellery at Chico’s. I’ll buy you a panini and some Spanx to make you skinny.” The teacher’s mixed feelings about her attraction also describe Bieber in a nutshell: “He’s like a dreamy Christmas elf… I don’t know if I want to marry him or put him in a stroller and push him around the mall.” What will former lover Barbara Walters think?
