HERE'S TODAY'S BONUS STORY:

Justin Bieber has been getting even lately with Mariah Yeater, the woman who accused him of getting her pregnant backstage at one of his concerts in 2010.  In case your unfamiliar with the story, Mariah slapped a paternity suit on Justin and he basically called her bluff.  Justin voluntarily took a DNA test to put an end to what had turned into a huge scandal, by proveing beyond a shadow of doubt.......he was not the baby daddy.
