Justin Bieber Turns Himself In On Assault Charge
Hours after debuting a video for his new single "Confident," in which pants ride low and he uses what is maybe the worst pick-up line of all time, the Biebs was forced to face the music in a different way. On Wednesday, Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police in connection with an assault charge brought on by a limo driver who claims he was hit repeatedly over the back of the head. Charged with one count of assault, he's scheduled to appear in Canadian court March 10. It'll be the second time in front of a judge for him that month; the singer will be in Florida on February 14 to plead not guilty in the DUI charge he's facing from last week.

Kendrick Lamar Reacts To Macklemore's Grammy Wins

"It's well-deserved; he did what he did, man," Kendrick told XXL. "Everything happens for a reason." Does that mean a duet is in the works? We can dream.
