In the previous two Men in Blackmovies, the MiB video surveillance zoomed in on famous people who were in fact aliens (or suspected aliens): In the first film, the list included Isaac Mizrahi, Danny DeVito, Sylvester Stallone, George Lucas, and Steven Spielberg. In MiB3, which opens this weekend, the Men in Black are monitoring new celebr-E.T.s (trademark ours), including Lady Gaga (of course), Justin Bieber, the Dalai Lama, Shaun White, and Tim Burton. So when Vulture ran into director Barry Sonnenfeld at the premiere party on the Intrepid flight deck on Wednesday, we had to ask: What makes these people aliens?
“This will get me into trouble,” Sonnenfeld laughed. “But my theory behind Justin Bieber is that he’s from Canada.” The director then explained a larger theory behind aliens in Canada, in which an undisclosed alien species was planning to come down and live in the U.S., and therefore sent spies here – but when they tried to transmit the data back to their home planets, “3 percent of it got scrambled in the transmission” so the settlers got the wrong coordinates and ended up in Canada instead. “Canadians are 97 point something percent like Americans,” he joked, “except that they’re way too nice and if you go into their homes, you’ll go, ‘Interesting! Fireplace in the bathroom.’” Therefore, he said, certain Canadians are quite possibly aliens.
Anyone who is too good at sports is also a suspect alien. “There was a Chinese seven-foot basketball player, Yao Ming, who is retired now,” Sonnenfeld noted. “But how many Chinese people are over seven feet tall?” David Beckham is also an alien “because he’s too good of a soccer player to be anything but.” And Shaun White is doubly on the Men in Black radar for his red hair (“That gets you halfway there,” Sonnenfeld joked) and his boarding skills. “He’s just good to be human,” Sonnenfeld said. “He’s using anti-gravity techniques.”
Burton might seem like an alien, but despite his presence on the board, the MIB aren’t sure about him. “He knows enough aliens that they keep surveillance on him,” Sonnenfeld said. “He may be procreating with an alien,” meaning Helena Bonham Carter. “I’m not saying she is an alien,” he clarified, “but the Men in Black aren’t sure [about her].”
It should also be noted that any celebrity called an alien in the film is done so with their blessing — they even get to approve their alien names. “I like that Lady Gaga’s alien name is also Lady Gaga,” Sonnenfeld said. “And the funny thing about Barbra Streisand is the alien name I came up with for her was Babs of Newtonia, and she said, ‘That won’t work. It’ll sound like I’m supporting Newt Gingrich.’ So we had to take the word ‘Newt’ out of her alien name, and I respected that totally.”
The Wanted have certainly earned a reputation for having a good time. The British boy band has even led Justin Bieber to say, ”I think they just want to get me drunk.” Well, he seems to be correct in his assumption.
Tom Parker told OK! at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, “Ah mate, when he comes to England, I’m goin to get him f****d up! I really am.”
“You know what’s funny, he’s just accepted it,”Nathan Sykes said. “I was watchin an interview the other day and he was like ‘Yeah, they’re going to get me drunk, there’s nothing I can do about it.’”
Tom even revealed he just wants to get him an English traditional beer (which Biebs admitted he does drink occasionally!).
What else may they do with Justin? There’s talk of The Wanted going on tour with him!
“There’s talk about it at the moment of it happening, but it could happen,” Tom shared.
“But we both got busy schedules — he’s on tour and we’re doing our world thing and trying to promote in different countries so. We’re trying to make it happen so hopefully we’ll be able to join him. The guy’s a little legend.”

Drake has a jam-packed schedule taking his Club Paradise Tour city to city, but the Toronto rap star still manages to find time to record, especially since he has a studio on his tour bus. Right after Club Paradise’s last show in Boston, Massachusetts, Drizzy will begin recording new music, possibly for his next album.
“I got a studio bus out here so me and 40 started working on a couple joints the other night. Just getting warmed up,” he continued. “I did like the ‘Amen’ track for Meek [Mill] and I did ‘No Lie’ for 2Chainz.”
Fans have already raved over Drizzy’s performance on both “No Lie” and “Amen,” which appears on the Philadelphia MC’s recently releasedDream Chasers 2 mixtape. Still, the Young Money star has a few more collaborations that fans will hear in the coming weeks, one of them being French Montana’s “Pop That.”
“I’m on French Montana’s single; me, him, Ross and Wayne, which is a crazy lineup,” Drake said. “And then on Justin Bieber‘s record. I wrote a song for him as well.”
At the time of the interview, Drake wasn’t sure of the name of the Bieber record or if the song would even be included on Justin’s upcomingBelieve LP. “Awkward Justin Bieber moment,” Drizzy joked after pondering the very slim chance that he wouldn’t make the final cut. “Yeah, we’ll see. It’s a good song though; produced by Hit-Boy.”
Well, Drake doesn’t have to worry. On Monday, the Biebs unveiled hisBelieve track list, and his fellow Canadian does appear on the song “Right Here.” We have no reason to doubt Drake’s word about “Right Here,” but we’ll all will just have to wait until June 19 when Believe is released to finally hear it.
