Celebrity-handwriting crisis

In the news, or “news,” a celebrity-handwriting crisis, or a celebrity handwriting-crisis:

The handwriting of today’s teen stars “is so atrocious, it’s talked about and recognized through the industry,” says Justin King, a Toronto-based paparazzi for Flynet Pictures and independent autograph seller. “With stars ages 30 and above, they generally have a much more full, legible signature. When you deal with these new people like [teen actress] Elle Fanning, you’re lucky if you get an E and F and a heart for her signature.”

Justin Bieber could use some help with spelling too.

No, Justin has 'YOUR' spelt correctly; it's just the wrong word, eh?

Yes. I started thinking about distinguishing between homonyms and homophones and decided just to call it a spelling mistake. :)
