Justin Bieber went face-to-face in the boxing ring with world champ David Haye recently.
Thankfully for Bieber fans the pair were just sparring, though, and according to Haye the teen pop star more than held his own. “Great workout in The Hayemaker Boxing Gym,” the boxer tweeted from Twitter.com/mrdavidhaye, where he also linked a pic of the pair. “You sure can pack punch! I’m now a Belieber!”
From the papers and beyond:
London‘s Heathrow airport is like a living, breathing issue of NME this morning – The Vaccines and Brother were all looking tired in the check-in queues before jetting to the South By Southwest festival.

Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus has been going through his personal items to auction to raise money for the victims of the natural disasters in Japan. He’s selling items including hand-written lyric sheets and clothes he wore in the band’s music videos on eBay to raise cash for the American Red Cross.
