It was hard to move an elbow at the Teen Choice Awards red carpet Sunday night without bumping into a hot young star. Even celebrities were running into celebrities.

Case in point: The Ministry was chatting with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder about the show’s upcoming third season -- ‘Can you believe? Season 3? People actually want to watch the show? I mean, what the hell is going on?’ -- when the actor got a tap on the back from Justin Bieber.

Bieber embraced Somerhalder, whom he’d met at the MuchMusic Video Awards a few weeks back.

‘Selena [Gomez] was hosting’ at those awards in Bieber’s native Canada, Somerhalder explained, ‘and they’re adorable.’

Meanwhile, reporters who’d spotted the famous pair interacting took the opportunity to throw questions at Bieber -- who had otherwise skipped the majority of the media line.

‘What’s your favorite teen movie?’ one shouted out.

‘The candles movie?’ Bieber replied.

Oh, Biebs. We think you mean ‘Sixteen Candles.’
