Happy Monday! Today in celeb news, we discuss highlights of the Billboard Awards (it’s Bieberific!). We’ll also talk about Russell Brand getting deported from Japan (who would’ve thought?), and just how much Princess Beatrice’s funky hat fetched on eBay!

The 2011 Billboard Awards were great for Justin Bieber, who cooly snagged 3 awards. You could tell that Selena Gomez (who was sitting next to him) was super psyched and proud for her honey. Taylor Swift had a pretty great night too, as she was named 200 Album Artist of the Year, as well as Country Artist of the Year. Another highlight of the Billboard Awards was Britney Spears’ sexy performance with Rihanna…later on Britney also dueted with Nicki Minaj. The night was especially great for Beyonce, who was paid video tribute by Michelle Obama, Stevie Wonder, Barbara Streisand, Lady Gaga, and Bono, before she was presented with the Billboard Millenium Award-no small achievement!

In other news, Russell Brand is clearly not welcome in Japan. Katy Perry seemed pretty bummed out, tweeting, “So … my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place #tokyodreamscrushed.” Russell Brand had been traveling to Japan to see Perry perform…according to Katy Perry, they wouldn’t let him in because of “priors from over 10 years ago.” Whatever THAT means…meanwhile Russell Brand tweeted a pic of him in a holding room with the message, Planning escape from Japanese custody. It’s bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick.”

Princess Beatrice should be happy-her quirky hat was a hit on eBay! It isn’t known who purchased the weird fashion statement, but whoever bought it has a lot of disposable income…the hat sold for £81,100. That’s $131,648! That’s a pretty good chunk of change, even for royalty! What do you think bout her hat? If you were a millionaire, would you have bought it? The money from the auction will be going to UNICEF, and Children in Crisis. Hat’s off to that!
