Alli Simpson is full of talent. I’m sure you’ve already seen her taking over the world as a blogger, model, actress, and teen ambassador. Now it’s time to add singer to that list! Alli recently released her debut single “Why I’m Single” on iTunes and has broken over half a million views on her official YouTube music video in only a couple of days.
After watching the video for “Why I’m Single” I assure you that you’ll feel much better about any past relationship or guy that’s been playing with your heart. It’s all about girl power, right?
If you didn’t already guess, Alli’s brother is Cody Simpson who is currently on his Paradise tour. He showed his support for his younger sis on Twitter:
What do you want to see from Alli next? Maybe a full album? Tweet us your thoughts at @ANDPOP.
WATCH “WHY I’M SINGLE” HERE:
It seems as though Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus have so many things in common, that there’s no doubt why they wouldn’t be the bestest friends ever. From their blooming personalities to being incredible role models, only one could wish for a friendship like this:
They support each other on stage
Whether you’re jamming out to Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber, you know it’s definitely a hit. In 2010, Justin joined Miley on stage at the MMVAs where she performed “Party In The USA,” and changed the song’s lyric to “..and a JB song was on.” Then a few months later, Miley joined Justin on stage for not only a sold out show at MSG, but they also collaborated on “Overboard” which made it into Justin’s documentary/concert film Never Say Never.
They both have a great sense of humor
It’s all fun and game ’til someone gets hurt, and Justin totally beat the crap out of that guy in this episode (well kinda). Things went to a whole new level when Justin hosted MTV’s Punk’d. This was the show’s first ever reverse prank where Miley originally thought she was going to punk Justin— but not so fast. On his way to the shoot, Justin showed his competitive side: “She’s not punking me, that’s not really possible. I can’t be punk’d.”
Possible collaboration? YES PLEASE
At the 2013 Billboard Awards, Miley walked the carpet where she was asked about her rumoured collaboration with Justin Bieber since they were spotted leaving the same studio. Miley responded with: “Everyone’s been asking me about that. My lips are sealed, I’m the queen of secrecy so I’m keeping that kinda under wraps.” Do you guys think this is going to happen?
Who wouldn’t want to party with Justin?
Remember when you were younger and felt rebellious listening to “The Thong Song” and is still, to this day, a song you can jam to? Well it’s gets even better because UK Pop/R&B band Rixton released a new cover on their YouTube today of the song! I know right, totally unexpected!
For starters, they’re not your average “boy band.” You can see that from the intro of their video poking fun at a staged representation of themselves.
The guys have previously posted covers of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” R Kelly’s “Ignition,” and my personal fave Neyo’s “Let Me Love You.” Also with the looks from this tweet a couple months back, there’s definitely some big things coming.
WATCH THE CLASSIEST COVER OF “THE THONG SONG” HERE:
And yes, in case you’re wondering where the heck Sisqo is, he’s still out there making music and doing his thang.
After Miley Cyrus spilled the news about her new single at the Billboard Music Awards, fans have been hardcore promoting the sh– out of it, and lemme tell you, it’s pretty darn good! ‘We Can’t Stop’ premiered Monday morning On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and in case you missed it (which is nearly impossible) take a listen here.
Here at ANDPOP, not only do we love the artist’s original tracks but we love to see all the hidden talent over the internet. Let us know if your faves made our faves list:

Like, leave me alone please
Valentine’s Day isn’t for everyone, especially those who much rather enjoy the single life. Some reasons why one is single is: they can’t date their favourite celebrity, they can’t date the internet, or they can’t date themselves. The media basically showered us all with high expectations that are almost impossible to meet. If you believe all of that, plus what you’ve seen in Disney films, good luck finding the special one. [heavens-1n-your-eyes]
Celeb-inspired Valentine’s card
Remember when you were little and Valentine’s Day was a huge deal because of all the fun classroom activities that were to come? You’d go to the store with your parents and pick up a box of cards of your choice — most likely relating to your favourite TV show or a bunch of cute animals. Throw all of that aside and give this Snoop Lion card to the boy of your dreams. [bunnyyears]
Bieber > Everyone else
Not only does he write and sing songs that make you wanna melt, Justin Bieber always gives his Beliebers the attention they deserve, especially when it comes to replying to them on Twitter. Justin even serenaded us all with a sexy Valentine’s Day message during his Saturday Night Live gig this week. All I can say is look at this YOLO moment one fan wrote, and the best part is that he agreed! [last-bye]
Make your mouth water
One of my favourite things to eat (and I’m being totally serious) is Nutella. But what would make a Nutella sandwich even better? Strawberries of course! Not fully covered but it’s kinda like Hannah Montana where you get the best of both worlds. [ohsweetbasil]
Play your way out of a text
Chances are: You once had a creepy guy send you a message like this, which then made you wanna gag a little and then not even recall giving him your number. Whatever you do, get out of it and quick. [makemestfu]
Spice up your wardrobe
Who really cares about lingerie when you can go on a spring shopping spree and buy cute skinny jeans and casual shirts to flaunt during the month of February? I know it might be a little cold but once in a while you can bare through it and look super cute! [yourfashioninspiration]
Or just walk around wearing this
I mean if you’re THAT desperate for a Valentine, wear this sweater in a public place (ie. at school, the mall) and see what options come up to you. Hopefully it’s not the same creepy dude who was sending you that late night, unwanted text! [instagram-lovely]
What the day is actually called
For all you single people out there, Feb. 14 is just another day alone. But don’t put yourself down too harshly. Buy yourself a box of chocolate and continuously eat them until you don’t feel lonely anymore. [ladieslaughing]
Curl up on your couch and watch a movie because what else could be better? You could get all hopeless-romantic and turn on The Notebook or go the other direction and watch a hilarious comedy. [attributive]
Kelly, Michelle and Beyonce, I don’t think you can handle this? The fierce trio always sported matching outfits, and I secretly wanted to be the fourth member, even if that meant me being backup to Queen B (I totally wouldn’t care). The girls recently released a new song, with many fans rejoicing. Beyonce is set as a performer at the SuperBowl half-time show, causing lots of speculation whether the three of them will perform together then. Michelle Williams gave the disappointing news on a radio interview saying, “It is rumored.” Throwback to some of their best jams: “Say My Name,” “Bootylicious,” and “Survivor.”[beyhive1992]
Don’t tell me you never owned any of the the guy’s famous puppet dolls, replicated from their second studio album, “No Strings Attached.” If anyone else is waiting for some type of reunion to happen, let me know because I’ll actually do anything I can to make it happen. N*SYNC was actually my very first concert and Justin was my first crush (not Bieber). With Justin Timberlake now having his own musical comeback, the odds are slim that a reunion will happen anytime soon. Sigh… Throwback to some of their best jams: “Bye Bye Bye,” “Gone,” and “Tearin’ Up My Heart.” [nsyncishere]

If you think you can twerk, don’t even try to compare yourself to Anthony or you might end up in utter embarrassment. With inspirations like Lana Del Rey and Britney Spears, there’s no surprise where this cutie gets his fierce attitude from. One thing to avoid being is a “basic b*tch” what he explains as: someone who does what everyone else is doing and isn’t their own person at all. Watch out for this diva in the future, and remember to be yourself! [lohanthony]
With over 200 million YouTube views and 850,000 Twitter followers, Kingsely will tell you how it is, and you won’t take offence to it. We’ve seen all types of props: hats, towels and wigs, but not all good things come to an end. You can get to know him better in various Q&A videos, or see a whole other side to him (literally) in Really B – involving three alter-egos that might remind you of your BFF. [impulsive-and-inlove]
No, this isn’t Vinny from the Jersey Shore but I’m sure he gets that a lot. Meet 20-year-old Joe from Queens, NY and if you like what you see, you can basically have a date with him every Tuesday night when he uploads a new YouTube video. His rants are so relatable that I usually laugh hard enough to end up crying. He often invites his hilarious friends and family in his videos as well. Flashback to the 90s, high school problems and your first date are just some of his funny video topics. [jsantagatogifs]

JT’s bringing sexy back, again
I’m so ready for new music this year, especially from hit-maker/hottie Justin Timberlake. In his open letter, he wrote: “This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the “grapevine,” I’m gearing up for a big 2013.” Not gunna lie, I was a total *NSYNC fan girl and I miss those years so dearly. There has been much mixed reviews about his new single “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z but just wait people, JT does not disappoint. [2x04]
And that’s a wrap
Basically there’s two types of Tumblr users: The ones who have an account but don’t want anyone to know about it, or the ones who post their link everywhere! Next time someone who is not a Tumblr expert asks what’s beyond the Tumblr log in page, this picture pretty much sums it up. [ch0col4te-chip]
Things just got a little bit more wild
The Wanted made their way onto the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards last week and were clearly their usual self, which we love. They picked up “Breakout Artist” and I truly believe they deserved it. While the other band members made their way back to the UK, Nathan Sykes stayed in LA to work in the studio for their new album. I cannot wait. [stefyandkrasy]
There’s always that one friend on any social media website that posts adorable pictures of their cat, and you can’t resist. I wonder if this person’s tattoo is some sort of kitten obsession? [kitsunekenta]
Wake up to heaven in a bowl
Every night before I go to bed, I have to have my cookies and milk. No, I’m not eight-years old but I sure do love my chocolate chips. When I came across this amazing invention, of putting mini cookies in a bowl of milk, I shed a tear. There’s nothing I love more than food and I’m about to run through my grocery store to make this happen tomorrow morning. [inhalekidcudi]

If I was your boyfriend, I’d never let you go
Although Justin Bieber’s been going through some controversy in the New Year, he never turns away from his Beliebers. Justin’s Believe Tour started back up this weekend and NOTHING is stopping him. Well c’mon, with a body like that, who wouldn’t wanna get shirtless? [allfredoflores]
Future parents: Kimye
Were you surprised when you heard Kim Kardashian is preggers? I wonder if the baby will become BFFs with Blue Ivy? According to reports, Kim and Kanye have already turned down a $3 million offer from a magazine that wants exclusive photos of the newborn. Obviously Kris Jenner wasn’t in the talks for this, you know how she loves money, money, money. [lovekardashian]
Twitcam fun with your fave celebs
The guys from The Wanted may come across as super hot, hilarious and have accents you can’t resist, but they also spend a lot of their time interacting with fans. It’s no surprise that band member Nathan Sykes hopped on Twitcam for over an hour to answer question and read hilarious comments from the “TW Fanmily.” Please don’t ever change! [the-queen-of-dreams]
At least she’s being honest
I’m not 100 percent sure how I feel about Toddler and Tiaras but some of the things these kids say boggles my mind. I hope once they become adults, they can look back and realize how crazy they sounded — not only them but the way their parents acted too. I guess that’s the pageant lifestyle for you. [hiimalec]

Recover from last night’s party
Whether you were celebrating with friends, family, or woke up with the person you met last night, it’s time to get back to reality. School starts back next week and you probably have a work shift to get to. 2012 was fun while it lasted, but make sure 2013 is even more memorable! [getinmystockingleo]
Be kinder to others
Okay admit it, Mean Girls is hands down one of your favourite movies, am I right? Even though the whole flick is hilarious, you could learn a few lessons. If there’s a new student transferring from Africa (or anywhere else) be the bigger person and let them sit with you! In the end, nobody likes a “Regina George.” [photographyxox]
Cut down on the calories
I get it. That chocolate bar is tempting. Those chips are addicting. Those cookies smell so fresh. But guess what, 6-months down the line will be summer and you’re gunna be kicking yourself wishing you DIDN’T eat what you did months ago. Be prepared to show off that beach bod. [debramorgan]

One week til Christmas!
Hopefully you have gifts sorted out, stocking hung up, lights turned on, tree looking extra snazzy, ugly sweater hanging up, cookies waiting for Santa, fireplace lit, cookies baking and holiday music playing because we are one week away until the happiest day of the year — Christmas! [4uroras]
Well it’s 2012..
You’d think by now, children would be able to text Santa what they want for Christmas. As sad as it sounds, who wants to sit down and write with a pen and paper? It seems as though even my youngest cousins at 3-years-old already has an iPod touch! [miapam]
Rocking in the holidays with Bieber
Justin Bieber was on The Ellen Show Friday and not only did he perform an amazing acoustic performance, he spilled some news! This January, you can expect more music, with a brand new acoustic album! BRB I need a moment to take this in. [infinatemistake]

Holiday movie marathon
If you’re in college or university, you’re probably finishing up your exams and final assignments. There’s nothing better than not worrying about school work anymore and being able to just flop on the couch to relax. Elf is definitely one of my favourite Christmas movies! Do you guys have an other suggestions? [monstrothewhale]
Time to decorate the tree
Nice to know my family decorated the tree without me this year. Not bitter at all… Anyway, are you the type of person to decorate a fake tree straight out of the box or be extra festive and find the perfect Douglas Fir? [snooowflake]
My Christmas wish came true
*SIGH* If only you could wish for a super cute, soul singing celeb for Christmas. I guess the next best thing is picking up one of their albums, or seeing your faves hanging out together! Siva from The Wanted and Ed Sheeran have played a few Jingle Ball shows together. It’s always nice to see fellow artists supporting each other. [thewantedblog]
Make your holidays stress-free
As we all know, Mean Girls is a classic teen movie, and I’m sure you can learn a few things from it. If you’re involved in any sort of talent show, make sure to have patience. No one wants to fight during the happiest time of the year, right? [pactressia]
Leftover Christmas lights
Bring the festivities into your bedroom or dorm room with Christmas lights! They can double as a nightlight or just look super cool. [human1ty]

Major LOLs during their performance for ANDPOP
One of my favourite things about The Wanted is that they don’t take themselves too seriously. They started off our live-stream with not one, but two acoustic performances— ’I Found You’ and ‘Glad You Came.’ If you didn’t catch what all the laughing was about, they were making sexual noises during GYC. I see what you did there. [skittlesforjay]
Drunk in the studio?
Even though the guys are constantly busy on the road, they’re making time for their new album coming out early next year. Nathan blurt out, “When was the last time you were in the studio Jay?” He didn’t quite remember if it was yesterday… or the day before. Who could blame him, really? [nodoyjay]
Tom Parker 2.0
Jordan wanted to know what it would take to be a member of The Wanted. After him and Tom reversed roles, he showed off his British accent and suggested he could be the rapper in the group. When TW’s manager Scooter Braun called in, he even said he liked the new Tom better. Could it happen? [thewantedsexgods]
Siva knows what’s up
Nathan may be the youngest out of the guys, but don’t question him when it comes down to his vocal cords. That solo in ‘I Found You’ says it all. Wow. [teamjaythan]
Too close for comfort?
During the lyric, “I’m glad you came,” Nathan couldn’t help but give a little grip onto Siva’s leg. He was like — uh no. It’s okay Nathan, I’m single. [nathanns]

Miley turns the big 2-0
Last Friday, Miley Cyrus turned 20! Yes, you’d better realize that she’s no longer Disney’s Hannah Montana. She has already accomplished so much, from hit movies and songs, to getting engaged and spicing up her look. Live it up girl! [itsyagirlmiley]
The Canadian and British collide
If you’re one of the lucky Beliebers going to Justin Bieber’s Believe Tour, be aware that the boys from The Wanted will be on the road with the Biebs in NYC and Toronto. This isn’t the first time the guys have performed together either. I wouldn’t wanna miss this if I was you. [thewantedblog]
New tats for Demi
Demi Lovato isn’t shy when it comes to tattoos. Recently she got a flock of birds tattooed on her arm, courtesy of Kat Von D. She tweeted: “Thank you so much
@thekatvond for my new ink!! I think it’s beautiful and I love it!!” Do you have a tattoo you are dying to get? [herhealingheart]
A bit of a hat hair issue
When you’re in a band as popular as One Direction, you’re constantly watched by fans and paps. ALL THE TIME. The boys recently tried to escape from their NYC hotel and Niall did a quick hair-fix that made the girls go cray! [inpayneforstyless]
Sorry to break it to you, but winter is coming… Read more…
You’re coming with me mom!
Justin Bieber took home all three of his nominations at the American Music Awards Sunday night: Pop/Rock Male, Pop/Rock Album for Believe and Artist of the Year. He decided to bring up the most important woman in his life, his momma Pattie Mallette. Easy on the arms Justin, we know you’ve been working out and everything but she’s so fragile! Congrats! [christmaslove]
Story of my life
If you’re someone like me, I spend practically 90 percent of my money on concert tickets. It’s quite sad when you think about it, but hey, it’s spent on my idol and I’m never gonna forget it. Did you hear ANDPOP is giving away tickets to see Justin Bieber on his Believe Tour in Toronto Dec. 1? Make sure you enter before it’s too late! Good Luck. [opparr]
Always picking on Nath..
Sure Nathan may be the youngest member of The Wanted, but he proved himself in their newest music video, “I Found You.” I’m just waiting for the day he can sucker punch one of them just for the hell of it. I’m sure they won’t take it so harshly anyways. All the guys have great personalities! [redvelvetlipsbreakingallrules]
Rice krispies to the next level
Let’s be real, who doesn’t like a yummy winter treat? Instead of making the plain old square rice krispies, turn it into a little snowman and decorate it with candy or chocolate of your choice. It doesn’t get any better than that. [under-the-m1stletoe]
The cure to all problems
There’s one lyrical genius who can turn any situation upside down, and help you feel like you’re in a happy place again. Some call him “Ginger Jesus,” but Ed Sheeran is definitely one to look out for. He’ll be touring alongside Taylor Swift on ‘The Red Tour’ starting next year. [sup-maggie]

Experience the Believe Tour
If you didn’t already hear the amazing news, ANDPOP is giving you the chance to see Canadian hottie Justin Bieber as he stops off in Toronto on Dec. 1. Find out how you and a friend could WIN tickets to the show. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even end up on stage and be his One Less Lonely Girl. [lebieberedits]
Usually when you become a professional fan-girl, you go all out. I’m sure there have been countless times when you and your friend have fought over which member of the band is “yours.” Now you can claim your man with these tanks. [llamarianastrench]
How many times has this happened to you?
Sometimes when you’re trying to accomplish an all-nighter or just had a bit too much fun at a party you tend to forget to set your alarm. In other words — not good. If you’re going to have a late night, remember to set an alarm or two BEFORE you leave and pack your bags incase of any altercations. [modelcity]
Spend your free time doing something productive
Do you remember what you did this summer? Browsing the Internet and re-blogging cute gifs don’t count. Why don’t you pick up a hobby like playing the guitar or learning a new language? You might be surprised what you can actually accomplish! [tig-rs]
Meaningful tatts Read more…
Not so scary decorations
Not all decorations have to be spooky spider webs or hanging skeletons. Spark things up a bit with these colourful (and glittery) pumpkin lights. You can totally hang them around your dorm and watch some horror films with your roommates. [lesliehay]
Epic music videos
Michael Jackson has one of the best Halloween-inspired music videos EVER in “Thriller.” The 13-minute video is full of zombies, werewolves, and a full moon. Need I say more? At least you’ll enjoy some great music and dance moves while watching! Oh and who could forget “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” where they end up at a haunted house after their bus breaks down. Classics. [threatened]
Hitting up the pubs tomorrow night?
Even though the majority of Halloween parties took place this weekend, I’m sure you’ll still want to go out tomorrow night after a long day of school. Just BEWARE if you have any 8 a.m. classes the next morning, you might want to set your alarm! [daay-dreaam]
Mean Girls reference is a must
Once you hit your teen years, there’s a zero percent chance that you want your parents to go Halloween shopping with you. Technically you can throw on a pair of ears (bunny, mouse, cat, devil, etc.), a tight dress and ta-da, you’re now an animal. Best of all, it’s socially acceptable. [whatshouldbetchescallme]
Hands down, best cookies ever (and super easy to make) Read more…
New Taylor Swift music, watch out ex-boyfriends!
Taylor Swift released her fourth highly anticipated album Red yesterday and I’ve had it on repeat ever since. Guys: If you’ve ever dated her, be prepared that there’s a song on the album about you. My favourite track so far is “Everything Has Changed” feat. Ed Sheeran. [fireworkswifts]
Cozy knit sweaters and your fave accessary
It’s that awkward time of year when it’s too cold for a T-shirt and not quite cold enough for your winter coat. One of my fave things about fall weather is wearing cozy sweaters; whether it be with leggings or a pair of skinny jeans. You can add a funky necklace to make your outfit POP! [oh-hey-emily]
I’ll admit it, most of the time I’d rather throw on a pair of chocolate Uggs and walk out the door than lace up booties. But after seeing these cute studded boots, I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re worth the extra effort. I don’t think you can ever have enough studs. Agreed? [monmondefou]
Everyone could use a bit of animal print
If you’ve been watching The X-Factor, you’re probably familiar with the animal print contestant CeCe wears on her face and legs. She recently told ANDPOP: “When I paint my face or legs it’s like an alter ego that comes out. It’s an empowering thing and I feel like nobody can mess with me.” [makeupftw]

Water park + Justin Bieber = Best music video ever?
After watching Justin Bieber’s new music video for “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, I couldn’t help but watch it over and over again! Seems like it payed off because yesterday VEVO tweeted: “24hr Record shattered w/ 10.6M VIEWS! No wonder @justinbieber is the biggest artist in the world!” [fuckyesjustinbieber]
My laptop is pretty much like my child. I use it on a daily basis and with that being said, I want to glitz it up with coloured keys. Has anyone else tried it? [italianluxury]
The boys are back on a whole new level
The Wanted released their new action packed video for “I Found You” and things get a little steamy for Nathan Sykes. The youngest member of the band, often refereed to as “Baby Nath” isn’t much of a baby anymore..and we like it. [madefornath]
But I can’t have just one…
Eekkk, Halloween is two weeks away, but you’ll definitely be seeing all kinds of chocolate, candy and decorations on the shelves. Just remember to buy an extra box and keep a hidden stash for all your cravings. [fallinlovewiththeseasons]
Do you approve?
Zayn Malik told Fabulous Mag, “At the moment I’m probably on about eight or nine cigs a day, which I tell myself isn’t too many. I just don’t want it to affect my health.” [niallersangel]
That awkward moment when… Read more…
After months of rehearsals and rumors about what to expect from Justin Bieber’s highly anticipated Believe tour, it finally kicked off on Saturday in Glendale, AZ. Even if you weren’t physically at the concert, Beliebers everywhere were glued to their Twitter accounts, tracking down every move that was going on. If you don’t have your hands on tickets yet, you might wanna get on that cause this looks like a show that’s going down in history!
Taking selfies in the middle of the show
If you didn’t already know, Justin is back on Instagram and I can’t get enough of his selfies. Oh and you can’t forget about the shirtless ones either. Okay back on track now… he grabbed a fan’s phone from the audience and took a picture of himself! What a lucky girl, I wonder if she’s gunna keep that for herself or share it with the world. *Wishful thinking* [ownmynight]
On point choreography
Justin is a triple threat. He can sing, he can act, and he can DANCE! Michael Jackson has been a major influence and it shows during his routines. They don’t call JB the Prince of Pop for nothing. [bieber-graphics]
The pelvic thrust
You better be paying 110% attention to every second of the show. No tweeting things like, “dsjfndjsgndfjskie” because chances are, you’re probably going to miss Justin’s epic hip thrust and you don’t want that to happen. [supportdrew]
