Justin Bieber's attorney, Roy Black, told Hollywood Life that he thinks Justin was set up to fail during last week's Miami deposition. He calls Justin a victim of the paparazzi, much like Princess Diana.

"The paparazzi can form into dangerous mobs. This can cause a serious problem -- recall lady Diana," Roy said. "Justin is like other celebrities -- hounded by the paparazzi. He has to hire security guards to protect him."

Roy adds that the prosecution asked questions that they knew would cause Justin to go off the deep end. "It started with questions like what did Usher teach you, or what was the most important thing other well-known people taught you," Roy added. "Later, [the questions] devolved into Selena Gomez."

The Selena questioning sent Justin storming out of the deposition and landing on every media site.

No sucker for 'Twilight'

Shailene Woodley realizes that her film "Divergent" will have a "Twilight"-like following, but she's hoping that it has a more positive message. " 'Twilight,' I'm sorry, is about a very unhealthy, toxic relationship," says Shailene in the April issue of Teen Vogue. "She falls in love with this guy and the second he leaves her, her life is over and she's going to kill herself. What message are we sending to young people? That is not going to help this world evolve."
