How dare things happen while I’m away? Keith Olbermann started a new show on Current TV, exactly like the old show but harder to find. The terrific doc Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop opened (here’s my rave review) and did not do well at the box office. Hmm, I wonder if seeing him four nights a week on TV made people reluctant to leave home to watch him on a big screen?
But here are two videos age hasn’t withered. Justin Bieber turned up on the late-night shows to promote his new women’s fragrance, “Someday” (no joke, that’s real) and was surprisingly ready to laugh at himself.
He appears side-by-side with Jimmy Fallon, who plays the “older fatter” Bieber, in a parody of a Calvin Klein commercial. (Fallon had already perfected his young Bieber impersonation.)
And on Letterman he delivered the “Top Ten Little Known Facts About Justin Bieber.” Both hosts made fun of Bieber’s age. “He has no idea who I am,” Letterman said when the kid showed up. “You don’t stay up this late, do you?”
Here are the videos; thank goodness they’re not in Smell-o-Vision.
