(RNN) – Americans have spoken – they do not want Justin Bieber on the nation's fruited plains or purple mountains majesty.

Those Americans who wish that Bieber would return via deportation to our northern neighbor of Canada have spoken loud and clear on the White House petition website We The People.

The petition reads, "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive and drug-abusing Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked."

The petition, which is still accepting signatures, has amassed the 100,000 signatures it needs to garner an official response from the Obama administration. While President Barack Obama has his plate full with his plans for a "year of action," the petition will get the same love and care the Death Star petition did last year.

Since the petition began, Bieber was charged with assault in Toronto, and embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has even come to Bieber's defense Thursday saying, "At 19 years old, I wish I was as successful as he was."

Wow, these two might have more in common than anyone thinks.

Dance of the Week: The Nea-Nee

The internet has a new dance – the Nea-Nea.

Made popular last fall by the Atlanta dance team Toonz, the dance and the official dance video has gotten more than three million views on YouTube. The dance also is really popular on Twitter, with the hashtag #NaeNae popping up in trending topics across the country.

The dance has become so popular, NBA star Dwight Howard and the legendary group TLC have posted YouTube videos of them doing the dance.

So, if you see people rocking from side to side rhythmically to rap music, don't be alarmed, they are just dancing. Here's hoping Miley Cyrus doesn't NaeNea on the next MTV Music Video awards.

Music: Is P. Diddy's Bad Boy Records closing its doors? Pour Ciroc out for the homies

A relic of the 1990s might be ending in 2014.

The incomparable Bad Boy Records might soon be closing its doors, according to the website AllHipHop.com. The record label, a subsidiary of Interscope Records, birthed the career of the late Notorious B.I.G., Lil' Kim, Craig Mack, Ma$e and Faith Evans at the hands of its CEO Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. The rumors have not been confirmed by Combs or by Interscope, but it's like Col. Hans Landa said in Inglorious Bastards, "Facts can be so misleading, where rumors, true or false, are often revealing."

The label currently only has a few big stars now, mainly Janelle Monae and Machine Gun Kelly, and could be closing as a result of Diddy's interests in other ventures, like his Ciroc vodka brand and the upcoming cable music channel REVOLT. The remaining artists on Bad Boy would be moved to its big brother Interscope, whose biggest acts are Lady Gaga, Eminem, Lana Del Rey and Kendrick Lamar.

It would be a shame for Bad Boy to fade without a whimper, but it's like Biggie Smalls said – Mo' money, mo' problems. Speaking of which …

Jam of the Week: The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Puff Daddy and Mase - Mo' Money, Mo' Problems (1997) – In honor of the greatness of Bad Boy Records and its speculated demise, here is the jam that most millennials know by heart.

This song was released not too long after the death of The Notorious B.I.G. and was the second single off his album Life After Death. The song and the album's first single Hypnotize were the first singles by a posthumous artist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Another little piece of hip-hop trivia: the R&B singer Kelly Price sings the hook to this popular sample of Diana Ross' hit I'm Coming Out.

TV: The 'Full House' guys reunite to sing Jimmy Fallon to sleep

For all of those girls who grew up wishing they were Michelle Tanner from Full House, be insanely jealous of Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon seems be saddened that he's leaving his post as host of NBC's Late Night to take over The Tonight Show. So much so, as he tries to drift off to sleep in his pencil bed (a popular model in the mid-'90s), he calls for his dad, his uncle and his dad's buddy from college to sing his favorite lullaby to comfort him.

It turns out to be a massive Full House reunion with Bob Saget, John Stamos and Dave Coulier. There are impressions, the phrase "cut it out" is mentioned, a Wake Up, San Francisco shout is uttered and Mr. Woodchuck makes an appearance. It is awesome.

Tumblr of the week: 365 Days of Balloons

Graphic designer Meghan Coleman calls herself a creative adventurer – a person who jumps at any challenge and new idea that sparks her artistic side.

Coleman, 28, has nurtured that inner creative adventurer with an idea to turn her childhood hobby of balloon art into a viral sensation she calls 365 Days of Balloons.

The project has transformed her into an "air sculptor" who uses tricks she's learned from other balloon sculptors to craft an art that's uniquely her own.

For more on her story, read the interview with Coleman here.
