Justin Bieber, 19, was photographed being carried up in the air as he visited the Great Wall of China, People reports.

In a barrage of Twitpics posted by fan feed BelieveTourUpdates, the singer can be seen riding on the shoulders of men reported to be his bodyguards while checking out the historic wonder.

Bieber is in China for the Asian leg of his Believe tour, and he's scheduled to perform in Dalian today and Shanghai on Saturday before hightailing it to Japan and South Korea.

YouTube is launching its own music awards and Lady Gaga will perform at the first-time event, The Associated Press reports.

The Google Inc.-owned company announced Tuesday that Eminem and Arcade Fire will also perform at the YouTube Music Awards on Nov. 3. The awards will be presented at Pier 36 in New York City and will stream live online.

The announcement said the awards show will honor "artists and songs that YouTube fans have turned into global hits over the past year." Nominees will be announced Oct. 17.

Actor Jason Schwartzman will host the YouTube Music Awards. A press release said the awards show will also feature events from Seoul, South Korea; Moscow; London; and Brazil.

How rude!

An upset "fan" succeeded in degrading only himself when he spit on Zac Hanson, drummer and singer with the brother-band Hanson, People reports.

The man had been kicked off the Hanson tour bus in Seattle on Monday, according to Gossip Cop.

A female supporter recorded the incident and posted the video to Instagram with the caption, "This a-------- snuck on Hanson's bus then spit on Zac's face. #hanson."

The musician, 27, was able to laugh off the offense. He then assured fans via Twitter that he was focusing on his upcoming concert.

"Gonna be a good show tonight, I cleaned off all the spit and I am feeling ready to go!" he said via the band's Twitter account.

He then responded to fans who were outraged over the incident.

"I know u have my back. We can crush some fools another day," he wrote.

A rep for the band had no comment on the spitting incident.

Hanson is the youngest of the trio of brothers, including Isaac and Taylor, that make up the band. He and wife Kate are expecting their third child this fall.

Gia Allemand's boyfriend, Ryan Anderson, was brought to tears as he spoke publicly for the first time about how he was coping after her suicide.

The New Orleans Pelicans forward was the one who found the former "Bachelor" star, 29, in her apartment on Aug. 12, after she hanged herself, and the Times-Picayune reports that his grief was evident as he was interviewed Monday at a team media day.

"Every day is a challenge," he says. "It helps to be here. My family's with me. To be here with my teammates really helps a lot, but it's a roller coaster."

Anderson performed CPR on his unconscious girlfriend before she was transported to hospital and placed on life support. She passed away two days later.

"Something like that just doesn't happen for no reason. And I know that ... there's ... a huge plan here ...," he said as he lost his composure and teared up.

Anderson explained that he's working on creating a foundation in Allemand's memory to help others battling depression and personal issues.

"A lot of people are going to be helped from this," he said. "We're in the process of starting something great for her with her family, including my family, too. We have a huge plan to do something great, great in her name that's going to help a lot of people."

Anderson's teammate Jason Smith says his friend is "doing a lot better."

"You never want to see anybody go through anything like that," he said. "He's made strides. He's always going to have something new every day. But I think he's strong enough to continue to work through it."

Danny Aiello, the Oscar-nominated character actor, is eager to take on his latest role: author, the AP reports.

The burly husky-voiced Aiello, who turned 80 in June, has a deal with Gallery Books for a memoir coming out in fall 2014. Gallery, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Tuesday that the book would cover Aiello's rise from gang fights in New York City to stardom for such movies as "Moonstruck," "Do the Right Thing" and "The Purple Rose of Cairo." The memoir is currently untitled.

Aiello's TV credits include the miniseries "The Last Don" and the ABC special "Family of Strangers," for which he won an Emmy in 1981. MTV fans remember him as Madonna's father in the video for "Papa Don't Preach."
