Got the flu? Fight it with the Bieber Fever!

Cuz if you're a fan, this news is sure to energize your immune system!

Regarding Stacey Betts' $9M lawsuit — in which she holds Justin Bieber responsible for permanent ear damage she incurred at a 2010 concert — the case is CLOSED!

Gurl realized she couldn't really move forward with the case without a lawyer.

So even though she was still under the belief that Biebs should heal her wounded ear with monetary medicine, she seemed to prioritize time over cash as she filed to dismiss the suit.

Justin is probably somewhere thrusting the air right now, LOL!

Nice try, lady!

Justin Bieber makes his beloved Beliebers go crazy and he just can’t help it — though, one woman seems to think otherwise!

Whoopi Goldberg Revals Hearing Loss!

Filed under: Whoopi GoldbergHealth

Whoopi

Whoopi Goldberg has a message for all those kids out there listening to their hippity hop, bee bop, rock'n jazz roll music too loudly — turn it down!

As it turns out, the View host has suffered permanent hearing loss from listening to music "so loudly and so close to the delicate ear drum."

In July, she attended the Starkey Hearing Foundation's "So The World May Hear" Awards Gala to support her deaf friend Marlee Matlin, but has recently shared the gala was actually more personal.

The Oscar winner said:

"I attribute my own hearing loss - which, by the way, is suffered by thousands of people in varying degrees - to years and years of listening to music so loudly and so close to the delicate ear drum."

We never knew because her hearing aids are covered by those signature Whoopi locks.

Now Whoopi is an advocate for the foundation and urging teens to avoid the same fate by turning down their headphones and speakers.

We hope they listen, but we know how teenagers are! Good luck getting through to them! LOL!

Gary Busey To Helps Others With Hearing Disabilities

Gary Busey To Helps Others With Hearing Disability

Gary Busey has decided it’s time to give back!

After getting hearing aids that correct the loss of hearing he experienced after undergoing brain surgery in 1988, Busey is ready to help others in the same way Marlee Matlin, the Oscar-winning actress who first identified Busey’s hearing loss, helped him.

Said Busey:

"Marlee Matlin said to me that it's not right to stop somebody from hearing so she sent me to Dr. Bill Austin, Starkey hearing aid in Minnesota and he outfitted me in one hour with this hearing aid.”

He continued:

"I had brain surgery after my motorcycle accident in '88 when I split my skull and it knocked a hole in my ear canal, making it smaller so Dr. Austin gave me these (hearing aids)… and now all five of my senses are working… Now I can help people with traumatic brain injury because I was the advocate voice that created the Traumatic Brain Injury Act that President Clinton signed in 1997. I'm very proud of that."

We like this. High fives to Busey!

Plug Your Ears New Yorkers

Filed under: Health

new york city noise can be deafening

New York City may seem like a fun place, however the noise of the city can cause hearing loss for some residents.

A study was conducted to see how much noise is actually surrounding people at certain spots around the city. The researchers stood at spots around the city wearing monitors that measured noise levels right by their ears.

It turned out that most readings, even in small seemingly quiet parks, read over 70 decibels. Uh oh!

This is not such good news for New Yorkers, especially because people whose daily noise exposure tops an average of 70 decibels can lose their hearing over time!!

This is kind of scary, because it shows that there are not many places in the city where one can get that quiet that they need!

Just a heads up to you New Yorkers…watch out for the noise that comes with the hustle and bustle.
