A summer wedding planned for Pitt, Jolie?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren’t waiting any longer for gay marriage to become legal; reports say the couple will say “I do” soon.

Apparently, New York’s recent legalization of gay marriage was enough to satisfy the gay-rights advocating couple, who previously had refused to say their own vows until every citizen in America was able to legally be married.

Or perhaps the power couple has caved to pressure from their six children. Mr. Pitt told USA Today in May that their children had been pushing the couple to take the plunge.

“The kids ask about marriage,” he said to the paper. “It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.”

US Magazine reported that three sources have confirmed that Miss Jolie and Mr. Pitt will wed sometime this summer, possibly in their home in Correns, France.

A source told the magazine the wedding would be “informal and intimate.”

Bieber joins campaign against texting and driving

Justin Bieber is using his popularity to alert teens to the dangers of texting and driving. As part of a new initiative, he is campaigning for a mobile-phone app that would prevent cellphone users from texting or emailing while traveling at speeds higher than 10 miles per hour.

“We need to change the attitudes in our society toward texting and driving, and I am making it one of my personal goals to make this happen,” the Canadian pop star said.

Justin already has begun to support this cause with a “Don’t Text and Drive” banner at his performances.

He will be teaming up with organizations that have made texting and driving a priority, including PhoneGuard Inc. and the Remember Alex Brown Foundation.

With such a large fan base, the message from this newly licensed 17-year-old has the potential to reach millions.
