America has offically jumped the shark

A few months ago, after ESPN spent an hour kissing the Akron Hammer's ass, Count Istvan said this:

Count Istvan said...
you know the saying about the straw and the Camels back? Well this is it. An Hour dedicated to King Lebrick's Ego. America is too far gone. We ain't comin back from the brink folks. This was the jumping of the shark. Next will be the three hour special to announce Pau Gasol's bowel movements.

The Count was wrong about that. This is the jumping of the shark that we won't come back from.

Paramount Pictures has made a deal to turn Justin Bieber's life story into a 3D feature biopic. Davis Guggenheim, the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth, is negotiating to direct. The film doesn't have a title, but Bieber will play himself in the film. The pic will be sprinkled with performances from his current concert tour. The film will come out February 11, 2011 on Valentine's Day weekend. Manager Scooter Braun and Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid will produce the film.
Yes. The suits in Hollywood have come down with Bieber Fever, or more accurately, the money he can rake in just on appearance alone.

But wait, there's more!

This comes as Bieber made a deal with Harper-Collins for a memoir about his life.
A fucking book on his life, and a 3D movie biopic.

God help us all.

In my view, memoirs and biopics are premature when the subject still has a Learner's Permit.
