Shaky-voiced performers, Justin Bieber and Big Sean, hit the America’s Got Talent finale stage to perform Believe’s “As Long As You Love Me.” Bieber claimed the performance would be “next level,” but it only confirmed my assertion that One Direction has dethroned the Pop prince. This is the umpteenth time he has done the exact same routine.
Ne-Yo, on the other hand, could school JB on how to sell even the most generic songs. The 33-year-old entertainer gave a proper live interpretation of R.E.D.’s “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself).”

As we know, the extremely prosperous career span of “teen idols” is relatively brief. Many find it difficult to naturally transition into adulthood, so they lose their massive, yet fickle, following. Aaron Carter, Backstreet Boys and Jesse McCartney are former “teen heartthrobs” that experienced a large amount of success at an early age and eventually faded to oblivion.
Last evening, I was introduced to boy band sensation, One Direction. Much to my surprise, “1D” were already well-established Pop stars with an immense fan base (“Directioners”), thanks to their stint on The X Factor UK. 1D concluded the night by winning three awards (two over JB) and performing their single, “OneThing.” Read More
Liam Neeson isn’t the only ass-kicking father that will leave you beaten, bloody and/or dead about his daughter; Michael Madsen has a killer instinct as well.
Justin Bieber premiered the video for “As Long As You Love Me” days ago, and in it, he gets beaten to a bloody pulp (similar to that from his Complex shoot). The Canadian pop titan climbs to the window of his girlfriend’s home, where she escapes with the guy that will stand by her side regardless of their financial situation.
Michael soon finds out, and being the overprotective father that he is, he reminds Justin who is really in charge. Big Sean performs his verse during Bieber’s N’Sync-esque dance break. Read More
Justin Bieber offers a glimpse at his upcoming video for “As Long As You Love Me,” a single from his Believe album. In the Anthony Mandler-directed short film, Michael Madsen plays the father role and tries to shield his daughter’s heart from Romeos like JB. Although Big Sean doesn’t appear in the sneak peek, he will be featured in the full video that is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, August 1st. Read More
Justin Bieber introduced Big Sean to a crowd who probably isn’t familiar with “Dance (Ass)” or anything from Finally Famous. The young duo performed Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me” at the Teen Choice Awards. Justin (no Timberlake) remembered his formulaic choreography, but he forgot to sing. Read More
Rolling Stone pimps Justin Bieber as a “hot, ready and legal” wife beater-wearing 18-year-old for their August issue. The cover isn’t the only disturbing job Bieber did this month; recently, Australia’s Got Talent hired the “Boyfriend” singer to breathe on their stage. Read More
Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake are white Pop&B singers that share the same forename, but the similarities end there–according to Bieber.
In a recent interview on Mojo in the Morning, a crass personality recited the story of when he was introduced to Justin’s “Boyfriend.” Like many, he said the record was reminiscent of something Timberlake would rehash from Prince or Michael. The interviewer attempted to shield his insulting undertone by saying it was actually a compliment, but the 18-year-old had on smoke and mirror-proof goggles that morning.
“That’s funny because our voices sound nothing alike,” Justin retorted. “Saying I sound like somebody else is definitely not a compliment.”
The incompetent interviewer then brought up a cougar chaser in One Direction and Justin’s mom. Justin clapped back and eventually hung up the phone. Apparently the ratings (and credibility) over at Mojo are worse than those at CNN. Read More
Justin Bieber’s Believe moved 374K units in its first week, making it the biggest debut of 2012 so far. Believe, Justin’s fourth Billboard chart-topper, fell short of its initial projections, 400-500K units. However, it’s the largest opening week since Drake’s Take Care, which moved 631K units.
