    TMZ has reported that although Justin Bieber crashed a prom this past weekend, he wasn't welcomed by school administrators. According to the site, Bieber showed up at the Chatsworth Charter High School prom for a few minutes last Saturday (April 25th), but the singer pushed his way through school security to get into the event. A district rep told TMZ, "His entourage pushed past the school's security to gain access to the dance floor." The rep added that administrators were worried that they wouldn't be able to control the crowd of students.

    • Bieber's reps, on the other hand, are saying that no one tried to stop the singer from entering the prom. The rep also said that Bieber went to the event at the request of a few students he met in the parking lot. The rep added, "It's unfortunate they're trying to make this a negative thing. It was awesome for all the kids."

    Reports previously surfaced, saying that Amy Winehouse's family wasn't fond of the documentary that was made based on the singer's life. A spokesperson for the family released a statement, saying that they wanted to "disassociate themselves" from the film titled Amy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the full statement has been released, saying, "They feel that the film is a missed opportunity to celebrate her life and talent and that it is both misleading and contains some basic untruths."

    The spokesperson continued, "The narrative is formed by the testimony of a narrow sample of Amy’s associates, many of whom had nothing to do with her in the last years of her life. By misunderstanding the condition and its treatment, the film suggests for instance that not enough was done for Amy, that her family and management pushed her into performing or did not do enough to help her."

    Amy's family also told Us Weekly, "Fundamentally, the Winehouse family believes that the film does a disservice to individuals and families suffering from the complicated affliction of addiction. By misunderstanding the condition and its treatment, the film suggests for instance that not enough was done for Amy, that her family and management pushed her into performing or did not do enough to help her. In reality, the filmmakers were told of a huge effort from all concerned to help Amy at all stages of her illness and their constant presence in her life throughout, as well as that of many excellent medical professionals."

    • The family continued, "As many families know, addiction cannot begin to be treated properly until the individual helps themselves and there is no 'one size fits all' solution. Furthermore, Amy was an adult who could never be told what she could and could not do. Through their work with the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Amy’s family have met many others enduring through the same struggle that they endured and have helped hundreds of disadvantaged young people in Amy’s name. They will continue to do so and hope their work creates more understanding of a terrible illness."
    • The filmmakers responded to the family's initial statement and said, "During the production process, we conducted in the region of 100 interviews with people that knew Amy Winehouse; friends, family, former partners and members of the music industry that worked with her. The story that the film tells is a reflection of our findings from these interviews."

    Former couple Diplo and M.I.A. had a small Twitter bout this past weekend. Diplo took to the site to respond to comments that he made about M.I.A. in a recent interview with Billboard. In the interview, Diplo revealed that he and M.I.A. made amends after she described him as "jealous" and "controlling" in an interview with Rolling Stone last month. He said, "I met her the next day at a hotel, and she apologized; I hadn’t seen her in five years. Nothing she said is a lie. I was really jealous and sad, and probably mad when she signed to a major label."

    M.I.A. however begged to differ with what Diplo told Billboard. She tweeted this past weekend, "I didn't apologize, I said you owe an apology to my people." Diplo then replied, "Wouldn't have expected you to be honest lol it doesn't matter to me as long as u ok with yourself."

    • M.I.A. told RS back in March, "I don't mind if he said bad stuff about me, but to discredit and to devalue what happened in Sri Lanka and with Tamil people during the war is something that is a bit disgusting. Because there were real consequences to that article, where people died, real shit happened, and people are still going through it."
