As we all know, Justin Bieber recently announced the new Girlfriend Contest, in which Beliebers rewrite and record their very own version of his song “Boyfriend” and upload it to YouTube. The winner will be flown out to a concert, have a meet and greet, and temporarily pretend that Selena doesn’t exist and JB is your swaggy Buzz Lightyear.
We’re always here for our JB fans, so we decided to give you some tips for your very own GF video. You only have 13 more hours though… so get on that.
Style: The creeper
Description: Stare deeply into the camera and imagine that a recently kidnapped JB is trapped in your lens, but you refuse to let him go because you LOVE him. It’s for his own good. Tell him that if he chooses you, it’s a lifelong decision, because you’ll steal his key and attach a small recording device under his sleeve. This contest entry from YouTuber wzr0713 is (hopefully?) a parody of stalker fans. So it’s very difficult to pull off unless your eyes can manage that delicate balance between creeper and no-but-I’m-not-really-a-creepy territory. Downside: JB might worry about his safety with this contestant.
Style: The already-girlfriend
Description: This video has tons of production value, including a fully set dinner table and a cardboard cutout of Justin. The romantic candles remind me of some sort of paranormal seance but you have to give this directrice credit for sweet camera shots and lighting.
Style: The talented singer Read more…
Style: The Silent Ninja
Skill level: Advanced
Description: Sneaking into their hotel room comes with the added risk of being busted by security, but the payoff is big. These fans snuck onto the hotel room floor roped off for One Direction and waited with their cameras like silent ninjas. They write on YouTube: “harry sounds pretty sloppy and apparently zayn was too. harry was in his boxers, riding on someones back down the hall while yelling something. best night of my life.” Apparently in the video Harry’s saying: “I got caught though, OLLY!” Whatever that means.
Name: The Chasers
Skill level: Novice
Description: If you’re a beginner, figure out where the band is doing their next book signing, wait till after the event and when you spot them RUN FOR YOUR LIFE. Here’s Zayn Malik riding on a golf cart at a signing in Chicago. She writes on YouTube: “This was a crazy experience and I just happened to be outside of the arena when they were(:”
Name: The Messenger
Skill level: Medium
Description : If you have a personal message for the guys, sit down with a piece of paper and a pen, and blubber out all your feelings. Then when you meet them in person you can hand them the note, just like these fans did for Zayn Malik in NYC. Zayn smiled and waved at these ladies. Just avoid excessive use of the word “love” and “marry me.”

Two men have been arrested for an apparent Joss Stone murder plot, reports CTV.
The two were found near the home of R&B singer Joss Stone in Cullompton, southwest England, on suspicion of conspiracy to rob and murder.
Police officials say the men were aged 30 and 33, and were arrested Tuesday after residents reported a suspicious-looking vehicle.
The men “had in their possession information relating to an individual in the Cullompton area and items which lead us to suspect that they may have intended to commit a criminal offense,” says Detective Inspector Steve Parker.
Stone’s publicist says she was apparently aware of the arrests and is being updated by the police. Police did not confirm that Stone was at home when the incident occurred.
The Sun newspaper claims, although not confirmed by officials, that the men had swords, rope, a body bag, and maps and aerial photos of Stone’s property.
The men are currently in custody. This is a scary story, especially if what the men had is true – a body bag? aerial photos? That’s a whole other level of stalking. Glad she’s okay.
