Web Exclusive: George Clooney is fighting back against newspaper reports

(CNN/CBS) - George Clooney is fighting back.  In an article published in USA today, written by the man himself, the actor says a story printed by the British newspaper "Daily Mail" is quote "completely fabricated" and "dangerous."

The newspaper said Clooney's soon to be mother-in law is against his impending marriage to her daughter because of religious reasons. Clooney rarely responds to stories about his personal life, but chose to do so because he says "to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous."  The newspaper has apologized and has taken the story down. 

Justin Bieber can't seem to stay out of the headlines.  The pop star accepted a plea deal, and entered a plea of no contest on a misdemeanor count of vandalism for allegedly throwing eggs at his neighbor's house in Los Angeles.  His representative said, "Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him."  The judge ordered Bieber to pay his former neighbor a little more than $80,000 in restitution, 2 years of probation, community labor and anger management sessions.

It promises to be a daredevil blockbuster.
