Even though the last few weeks were kind of rough, things aren’t all that bad for Justin Bieber. His manager Scooter Braun tweeted yesterday:
— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) April 2, 2013
Wait, WHAT?! Did anyone just get a little excited?
Well, it’s not like it’s out of the blue. The boys are really good friends considering Scooter Braun manages the both of them, and The Wanted has opened for Justin in the past. (Let’s not forget that apparently Justin hit Siva Kaneswaran where the sun doesn’t shine!) Regardless – if Justin wrote it, and The Wanted’s going to record it – it’s going to make our heart pitter-patter.
We can’t wait to hear it!
While he might’ve had his pet monkey confiscated from him over the weekend, Justin Bieber seems to be in good spirits as he uploaded this video of him meeting his fans in Vienna. The 19-year-old singer was nice enough to stop to sign some autographs and take some selfies with his adoring Beliebers in Vienna, Austria. Bieber is currently in Germany for his “Believe” world tour.
When it comes to hip hop covers, often than not you’re left thinking “why would they even attempt covering THAT song!?” But then there are those that cause you to begin dancing around your room with excitement.
But what’s most surprising is when those covers are done by non-hip hop artists. I don’t know if it’s the initial shock of “oh my god, this actually sounds good,” or the weird juxtaposition of when the song is done in another genre entirely. The bottom line, though, is that they’re good and all we want to do is listen to them.
Here are 10 of the best hip hop covers from non-hip hop artists.
Ed Sheeran and Passenger — “No Diggity / Thrift Shop”
A pretty recent cover comes from music’s most soulful ginger, Ed Sheeran, who teamed up with Passenger’s Mike Rosenberg during a recent visit to Australian radio to give us an amazing mash up of Blackstreet’s 90′s hit “No Diggity” and Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.”
Ed Sheeran — “Empire State of Mind”
Ed Sheeran makes another appearance on this list with his cover of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State” of Mind for BBC Radio 1. Ed can do no wrong, so it’s no surprise that this cover (like everything he does) is nothing short of perfection.
Spring Breakers star Selena Gomez stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman last night to promote the new controversial movie.
The former Disney darling was charming throughout the whole interview, especially when the topic of her now ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber came up. The show’s host, David Letterman, talked about how the last time Bieber was a guest on the show, Letterman made him cry.
“Well then, that makes two of us,” quipped Gomez.
She pretty much stopped the interview as she had Letterman and audience in stitches. Letterman even gave props to Gomez for her comedic timing. “That’s pretty strong,” he remarked.
What do you think of Selena Gomez’s Justin Bieber joke? Did she go too far or was it fair game?
WATCH SELENA GOMEZ ON DAVID LETTERMAN BELOW (Justin Bieber talk starts at the 5:30 mark):
The Black Eyed Peas’s will.i.am collaborates with another pop idol for his next single. This time, he and Justin Bieber bring their musical powers together for “#thatPower” off of his upcoming album #willpower.
will.i.am always finds the most successful pop stars to collaborate with, and the songs always hit high on music charts. From Britney Spears to Fergie, to Nicki Minaj, and now Justin Beiber, Will.I.Am is a master at the successful collab.
Like all will.i.am songs, his new track is catchy, up beat, and sure to take over the club scene.
Will.i.Am’s #willpower is set to be released on April 9.
LISTEN TO THE SONG BELOW:
Being able to grow facial hair must be a sign of manhood for many males. But while we know that Justin Bieber is officially an adult (in Canada), perhaps trying to grow some facial hair isn’t the best way to show that you’re all grown up.
Because from the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like much.
The singer posted a pic to his Instagram, captioning it: “Growin out the stash lol.” But to us, it just looked more like peach fuzz.
So before this escalates into something more, I have a piece of advice to Justin from a woman to a man.
Justin, we know you can sing, dance and charm the ladies with your swag but maybe growing a mustache isn’t for you.
You can’t have it all in the world. Save it for the pros…Ben Affleck and George Clooney.
A few weeks ago Olivia Wilde wasn’t feeling the love when she tweeted at the Biebster, “put a f—king shirt on.” If twitter has taught us anything it’s that you don’t mess with the Biebs. Well, Wilde tried to clear the air while on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Wilde explained she was just concerned for Bieber’s health but the fans weren’t buying it. She recieved some interesting tweets like, ” the nerves tho. who does she think she is!” Ouch! No Love in the Wilde…
This is the pic that sparked all that frenzy:
Hopefully Olivia and Justin can kiss and make up, maybe they can go shopping together? That’d be a cute moment.
Beliebers everywhere have brought an awful lot of hate on the pop princess Selena Gomez after she ditched the singer and broke his young heart into a million little pieces…or something like that. And now they are enraged again because they believe she is taking another stab at her ex.
She posted a video of her and her friends dancing to Dustin Tavella’s ‘Everybody Knows (Your Boyfriend is a Douchebag). Now, Selena’s groups of friends post videos dancing to other people’s songs all the time, but some people are saying the video is her response to Justin’s recent string of scandals in London.
I’m going to give Selena the benefit of the doubt. She seems like she’s just having a good time, and was not trying to be malicious. What young 20-something doesn’t love having a dance party with their friends?
Check out the video below:
There’s always two sides of every story, and poor Justin Bieber always seems to be on the wrong end of it all.
We all know growing up is never easy, let alone in the spotlight. The Canadian pop star could probably tell us tons of paparazzi horror stories. If he hadn’t already written his first autobiography, I’m sure he could’ve filled those pages with high speed car chases down California’s Pacific Coast Highway.
In the TMZ video floating around, it appears as Justin Bieber purposefully hit the filming paparazzi as he was making his way to the car. It apparently was the hit that caused the pap to fling insults at the pop star and in turn, caused the Biebs to burst out in his own tirade of curse words. But in this alternative angle, it looks like Bieber was just simply trying to make his way through the scrum of photographers and cameramen waiting outside of his hotel room.
Bieber’s little outburst was probably a culmination of all the things that went wrong during his time in London—from his worst birthday ever to being booed earlier this week.
So, was the pap just over-exaggerating to get Biebs to react? Watch the video below and let us know what you think!
I’m sure you’ve heard that Justin Bieber had collapsed on stage last night in London. Poor him, probably overworking himself (it was his third show in a row at the O2 arena) and is under a lot of stress especially with what the media’s been saying lately. However, being so dedicated to the fans, he decided to pull through and finish the rest of his concert before rushing to the hospital.
However, all is fine, and he’s better now. He tweeted his progress while thanking the fans and also posted a shirtless picture on Instagram, with the caption: “Gettin better listening to Janice Joplin“. Never have I ever been so jealous of a hospital bed before.
But wait – what? I did not know that Justin Bieber listened to Janice Joplin. Who would’ve thought? I would’ve expected him to listen to something around his genre, maybe some Michael Jackson, or even old school NKOTB. But I wouldn’t blame him, Janice Joplin’s music does contain some kind of magic in it. Maybe it’s the reason that he healed so quickly? All jokes aside, I’m really glad that Justin’s feeling better now. He has his fourth show in the O2 Arena tonight, so let’s hope nothing drastic happens. We wouldn’t want you to collapse again. But seriously Justin, take a break sometime.
If not for your health, maybe your safety. Those paps haven’t been so kind to you lately. Read more…
It seems like today is the day for big name Hollywood health problems.
Justin Bieber was performing in London again this evening when, halfway through the show, he started experiencing difficulty breathing on stage, and according to eye-witnesses, even collapsed on stage!
But, being the trooper that he is, Justin somehow managed to finish the performance (against his doctor’s advice). His rep released a statement saying,
“He got oxygen from emergency personnel. He insisted on finishing the show. He is on his way to the hospital right now.”
He really must love his beliebers!! Let’s hope nothing is seriously wrong. I can’t bear to think about that beautiful face of his in pain.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, T-Swift gets feisty, Justin Bieber upsets fans, and bffs Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore get their tan on.
HIT: Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith Hang Out
Could this be the beginning stages of puppy love? Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith have been friends for a while but according to a source who revealed to Us Weekly, the two are dating! The young stars were most recently spotted together on a lunch date at Caffe Nero in London’s famous Piccadilly Square on Sunday, Jaden was in town to celebrate Justin Bieber’s 19th birthday.
MISS: T-Swift Disses Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Come on Taylor, can’t you take a joke? Let’s be real here, If you’re a celebrity who’s recently made some headlines and you’re attending the Golden Globes that happen to be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, prepare to be made fun of.
Swift, who is known to test the waters so to speak, was the subject of a Fey-Poehler joke during the Globes. The duo said that Swift should keep her hands off of Michael J. Fox’s son, Sam, the night’s Mr. Golden Globes. Taylor was not impressed… I guess the wounds are still fresh because who could forget Swift’s split from One Directioner, Harry Styles.
In a new interview with Vanity Fair Tay-tay had some words of her own. While on the topic of mean girls, Swift said, ”You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’”
Fey spoke to Us Weekly. “It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke.” Poehler also commented, she told the Hollywood Reporter, ”…I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl, that being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
I think I need to arrange a group hug for these three.

They say the higher the hair the closer to god. As a girl with large curly hair, I’m going to go ahead and go along with that statement.Girls love to give their hair some height, because flat hair with no body can be quite a disaster.
Guys complain that girls are obsessed with their hair. “You look fine,” they all say. “Just fine?” we throw back.
While most guys just shower and leave their hair as is, there are always a guy who spends more time than girls do gelling and styling their hair. Just try most of the guys in Hollywood because as we all know, perfect hair doesn’t come naturally.
Now, I have a bone to pick with all these guys who style their hair. It is not fair for a guy to have prettier hair than I do, or prettier hair than any girl for that matter. You’re showing us up.
There are some males in Hollywood with perfectly quaffed high hair. Geez, Who gives you the right.
Listen Colfer. You are on my list.
Yes, I have a hitlist. A list of males in Hollywood with the (unfairly) highest hair.
Stop it. Just stop it. You make us all look like hairless rodents.
READ THE LIST BELOW:
1) Chris Colfer
2) Eddie Redmayne
3) Justin Bieber
4) Will Smith in Fresh Prince Read more…
Our poor baby.
Justin Bieber, who turned 19 yesterday, ended his big legal-age turning day with a depressing tweet. After a confrontation ended his birthday celebrations early, Bieber was forced to leave his circus-themed party at London’s Cirque du Soir.
According to E! Online, the confrontation occurred between Bieber’s entourage and club security. Apparently friend Jaden Smith and Bieber’s rumoured flame Ella-Paige Roberts Clarke were also at the bash.
Bieber was obviously pressed last night, tweeting: “Worst birthday.”
Catching on to the news soon enough, Beliebers started the trend #BeliebersHatePaparazzi” blaming the usual suspects for ruining J-Biebz’s big day.
This obviously sucks, but it’s not like Bieber can’t afford another party. He’s rich and he’s fairly successful. I’d say he has a pretty good life and can let this slide.
Dear Justin Bieber,
It’s your 19th birthday today. Happy birthday! The older you get, the more mature you’re supposed to be.
I don’t know about you, but I feel like 19 is such an important year. The most important thing about being nineteen is that you’re now legal to drink all over Canada. We know that you probably get the star treatment and like most teenagers, you’ve been doing this for quite a while. But if you were still back in your hometown, we’d know that tonight you’ll be drinking and clubbing until your liver falls apart. So, make a trip to the Great White North and do just that. Just know your limit and don’t drive. If you want to just chill at home, that’s cool too. Not everyone wants to get black out drunk on their big day and subsequently loses memory of what happened.
So let’s talk more about that maturity thing I’ve mentioned before. Lately, your fashion choices are a bit questionable. Read more…
With the screaming goat videos replacing the Harlem Shake as the Internet’s new viral video, why only stop at Taylor Swift? The new meme has everyone making remixes from Miley Cyrus, to One Direction and yes, even Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi? Trust me, the goat fits right into the song. Here are ten of the best goat videos out there right now:
Miley Cyrus – Party in the USA
This rendition of “Party in the USA” got me nodding my head like yeaaah, shaking my hips like yeaaaaah.
Justin Bieber – Baby
The classic “Baby” song. I think this one speaks for itself.
Rebecca Black – Friday
Is it bad to say that I believe this version might actually make it sound better?
David Guetta feat. Sia – Titanium Read more…
Justin Bieber has recently released the lyric video for his upcoming single, “Right Here,” featuring felling Canadian superstar Drake.
The video is a treat in itself as it uses stop motion to bring the baby-faced pop singer’s words to life as they scroll between and on sets of speakers.
“Right Here” is just one of the many hits on Bieber’s Believe album and will soon join “Beauty and the Beat,” “As Long As You Love Me,” and “All Around The World” as one of the album’s best single.
First T-Swift, now the Biebs. It doesn’t look like anyone is saved from being “goat’d” (just coined a term! I’m high fiving a million angels right now.)
But unlike T-Swizzle, this particular goat video takes us back to the days when Justin still had a high voice and his long, luscious bangs. Oh, the head shake. How I miss thee.
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. It’s time to catch up with our favourite starlets, drama queens and wannabees. This week, J-biebs shares the love on Valentine’s Day, One direction teases us with a new video and surprise, surprise, Kevin Federline may be in trouble.
HIT: One Direction goes Global with their new charity Single.
Okay Directioners, you’ve been waiting patiently and today, you can finally see the video for their new single, “One Way or Another (teenage Kicks)”. Last week, our favourite British boys teased us with a preview of their latest project. In this super cute music video, the boys find themselves monkeying around with kids from around the world. Adorable! All of the proceeds from the track will go to U.K. charity, Comic Relief’s annual fundraiser, Red Nose Day.
MISS: Chris Brown is caught hanging out with ex Karreuche Tran.
While RiRi was off in London for Fashion Week, the always charming Chris Brown may have had a little fun without her. According to Perez Hilton, Breezy and his ex, Karreuche Tran, arrived at last weekend’s NBA All Star weekend, but may have had a not-so-secret rendez-vous at the mansion Chris rented out! Karrueche supposedly Instagrammed a pic while at the mansion but later deleted it. Interesting….
P!nk’s definitely got bikini bod ready to go. In her ”The Truth About Love” tour, the singer shows off her sexy physic in a long-sleeved crop top and bedazled black pants. But seriously this picture makes me want to throw out the tubs of Ben & Jerry’s I’ve stashed in my freezer. Nah, maybe next week…
MISS: K-Fed joins the Tax Lien Club
Uncle Sam wants you, Federline. The D-list rapper,who has as much street cred as my Bubbie, apparently owes the IRS big! Brit-Brit’s baby daddy is just the latest celeb to join the Tax Lien Club! According to TMZ, The lien is for over $57,000 in tax payments Kevin missed in 2009 and 2010! I wonder if he’ll be releasing any more “chart topping” singles to help pay this off? Well there’s always K-Mart, K-Fed.
HIT: J-Biebs spreads the love on Valentine’s Day.
This Canadian heart-throb had plenty of love to share on cupid’s holiday. “The As Long As You Love Me” singer tweeted: “U should know you are beautiful. Happy Valentine’s Day.” Awwh thanks Biebs!! But who are we kidding, this tweet was clearly directed to ex Selena Gomez. If you were my boyfriend, Bieber, I’d never let you go! LOL!
MISS: Oscar Pistorius hits the courtroom
The paralympian appeared before a judge in Pretoria, South Africa after he allegedly murdered his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Save the waterworks, Pistorius. After he was charged with one count of murder, all he did was cry. Pistorius claims that he shot the supermodel because he thought she was an intruder. Police aren’t buying it because the athlete’s been charged with “previous allegations of a domestic nature.”
We were all rooting for you, Pistorius! Why did you have to let us down? RIP Reeva
We love Justin Bieber so much that sometimes we can’t help but sing his songs out loud… while we’re alone … on the street… Yes, people do think we’re insane and we do get dirty looks now and then but we can’t help that his music is so catchy. But even after listening to his songs dozens of times, we also can’t help mishearing them and thus, singing it all wrong.
Thanks to the misheard songs site Kiss This Guy, I’ll never hear some of his hits the same way again…
