The Entertation Index: April 29
Bieber, Justin – Stockholm police raided Bieber’s bus during a Swedish tour stop when an officer detected a strong odor of drugs. A search turned up only a small amount of what appeared to be marijuana, pending test results. Police were so disappointed that they gave Bieber two dozen Ecstasy pills, a pound of top-shelf weed, and a stack of porn “so weird you can’t get it in the States.”

Braff, Zach – The Scrubs actor raised $2 million in three days through Kickstarter to help fund a follow-up to his film Garden State. $1.75 million of that is thought to have come from The Shins with the note, “please, please get us on the radar again!”

Fiction, Pulp – Director Quentin Tarantino’s cherry red 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu, stolen during the 1994’s Pulp Fiction, was recently found and returned. This is a reminder that Pulp Fiction came out almost 20 years ago. God, I feel old.
