No, Macaulay Culkin is not dead.
Despite numerous reports circulating online that the Home Alone star passed away on Saturday, Culkin is alive and well. To get the internet to calm down, the actor-turned-musician called upon the help of the beloved (and ridiculous) 1989 film Weekend at Bernie's.
The media narrative surrounding Justin Bieber has spiraled out of control. He's this year's Anne Hathaway, the person whom it's vogue to hate. But this turn isn't completely unfounded. Over the past few years, Bieber has undoubtedly become a bit of a jerk.
He was charged for illegal (and seemingly racist) graffiti, pissed in a mop bucket, left his monkey in Germany and could anyone seriously forget this hat? But for non-Beliebers, there has always been something grating about the singer. Everything from his swoopy hair to his sugar-pop love songs seemed designed to annoy all post-pubescents on sight, breeding discontent which lay dormant until his penchant for leather sweatpants and hocking loogies made him impossible to ignore.
Then all hell broke loose.
Macaulay Culkin has formed a Velvet Underground tribute that uses pizza as a central theme, according to The Guardian.

One of the most predictable Academy Awards in years took a film-worthy twist as Kathryn Bigelow and The Hurt Locker beat out the closest thing the movies have to a Goliath — a film that just happened to be made by Bigelow's ex-husband. In doing so, Bigelow became the first woman ever to be named best director. But even some of the night's most foreseeable elements were pleasantly unsurprising: hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were as cutting as you would expect, and sometimes the overwhelming favorites are the overwhelming favorites for a reason.
