“I Really Like You” was supposed to be Carly Rae Jepsen’s huge comeback. From the onset, critics praised it for its infectious beat and catchy chorus. For some reason though, it just hasn’t connected with the general public. It hasn’t even cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40. It’s truly shocking how underwhelming the song’s performance is.
Jepsen and her manager Scooter Braun are desperate to save whatever life “I Really Like You” has left. The thirst is real folks.
Braun convinced Justin Beiber to enlist a bunch of famous friends to film a lip dub clip for the track. Watch Ariana Grande, Lance Bass, David Foster, K-pop star CL, Empire‘s Bryshere Gray, Kendall Jenner and many more below be unofficial ambassadors for Carly Rae.
Ariana Grande’s The Honeymoon Tour hits my neck of the woods next week and I can’t wait. The thousands of teen girls surrounding us will undoubtedly be annoying but I’ll be armed with six of my friends and a bit of alcohol in my system ;)
During her Inglewood, California spot, the 21-year-old singer covered the Whitney Houston classic, “I Have Nothing.” She absolutely slays it. David Foster who produced the track accompanied her by playing the piano alongside here. Hopefully, Ariana performs this or an equally impressive song cover when she hits Vancouver.
Justin Bieber who previously joined Grande on stage in Miami, once again made a surprise appearance. This time though, he remembered the lyrics to “Love Me Harder” when he duetted with Ariana. The Canadian singer also sang “As Long As You Love Me” and his new Jack U collaboration “Where Are U Now.” Check out all the performances below.
Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle is quickly becoming must-see television. Every celebrity participating on the show so far hasn’t held anything back in hopes of securing a victory.
The latest promo features Justin Bieber channeling the ‘Godfather of Heavy Metal.’ The 21-year-old looks practically unrecognizable wearing a long black wig, lip syncing to Ozzy Osbourne’s 1980 hit, “Crazy Train.”
The Biebs choosing this track may seem out of left field, but the two previously worked together. Back in 2011, they teamed up for a Super Bowl commercial where Ozzy asked, “What’s the f–k a Bieber?” Check out the promo below. Lip Sync Battle airs on Thursdays on Spike.
It’s Madonna Week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The 56-year-old pop icon is on hand all week long to promote her new album, Rebel Heart, in stores now.
On today’s appearance, the “Living For Love” singer plays Never Have I Ever with newly-roasted Justin Bieber. For the most part, the questions are pretty PG and tame. The most salacious thing they admitted to is hooking up with siblings. Who hasn’t ;)
What I would give to play an actual game with these two with a few drinks consumed, naturally of course. The tea that would be spilled would be epic. Watch Ellen play with Madge and The Biebs below.
Over the weekend, comedians, rappers and fellow celebrities ripped Justin Bieber a new asshole. The 21-year-old singer wasn’t spared at the Comedy Central Roast taped on Saturday. For us mere mortals who weren’t at the taping, we’ll have to wait til March 30 to watch the hilarious affair.
Some of the roasters who took to the stage included Martha Stewart, Natasha Leggero, Chris D’Elia, Jeff Ross, Snoop Dogg, Shaq with Will Ferrell even doing jokes in character as Ron Burgundy. They all took aim at his music, tabloid antics, legal issues and love life. From what I read, the most cutting digs came from Ross. Here’s just a few dingers.
“Selena Gomez wanted to be here but she’s dating men now. Is it true you dumped her because she grew a mustache before you? Selena Gomez had sex with [you]… proving Mexicans will do the disgusting jobs Americans just won’t do.” Ross added, “If Anne Frank had heard your music, she would’ve Uber’d to Auschwitz,”
Check out two clips below that the network just released.
To say Carly Rae Jepsen’s latest video is completely random would be a huge understatement. What was her team thinking? This is a total misstep.
When I heard about Tom Hanks’ involvement, I naturally assumed it would be a cameo. Never in a million years did I expect he’d be the star of the clip with Jepsen appearing minimally. Who in the hell did the two-time Oscar winner owe a huge favor to???
The Peter Glanz-directed clip follows Hanks from the moment he wakes up to nightfall. He’s shown washing his teeth, taking a cab and walking the streets of New York City. Jepsen later joins him for a dance routine with Justin Bieber popping up for a hot second.
Personally, the visual is a disappointment. Sometimes less is more. The catchy song would’ve been better served with a simple clip of Carly Rae pining over some hot shirtless guy. Tried and true formula always works. Check out the music video below.
Comedy Central revealed the celebrity lineup ready to take aim at Justin Beiber for his highly-anticipated roast. It includes none other than comedy legend Martha Stewart!!!
Obviously, I’m joking at the comedic part but the fact the domestic diva is participating is pure genius. I’m tuning in just to see what Stewart dishes out. Literally and figuratively. Find out who else is on tap below.
How do you celebrate turning 21-years-old? Showing off your body transformation for a national fitness magazine of course. Justin Beiber shows Men’s Health readers he’s no longer that scrawny teenage pop singer anymore.
In the cover story titled “The Reinvention of Justin Bieber,” the “Boyfriend” singer reflects on the public growing pains he’s experienced the past few years that have tarnished his image. It’s good to see him addressing his past conduct and mistakes.
“I had to grow up so quick. And it was almost like I grew up for the public but I didn’t necessarily grow up. There were things I had to do, as far as the way I had to make relationships, and conversation, but as far as actually growing up, there were a lot of things I missed out on.” – Bieber on growing up in the public eye
Along with getting introspective, the Biebs shares his workout routine with the publication’s readers. He also reveals his bromance crush on Ben Affleck. Who knew?
I have to say his team is doing an outstanding job trying to rehab his image. From his upcoming Comedy Central Roast to his mea culpa on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Justin is definitely on the right path to redemption. Check out more pics snapped by Peter Hapak below, along with more quotes.
