    Only mass can bend lasers beams (which are electromagnetic waves)

    because mass tells space how to curve. An example can be seen in gravitational lenses (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_lens ). Light from a distant star of star group, can be focussed or blurred by a nearer group of stars between the observer and the distant star.

    This laser can interfere though with the strong magnetic field (ex:holograms) And light can be bent if travelling in media like glas or any other optically active matter.

    As laser is nothing but emission of photons, they generally bend when we apply an electro-magnetic field

    Electric and magnetic fields only apply forces to charged particles. Light is not composed of charged particles (it is actually wave disturbances of the electromagnetic field itself).\[\vec F = q\left(\vec E + \vec v \times \vec B\right)\]
