Fresh off his Brit Award wins, Justin Bieber’s cover and interview with mega-magazine Rolling Stone has been released. Interviewed by Vanessa Grigoriadis, a contributing editor for the mag, she explains how she rode around in his Range Rover in Atlanta and talked about girls, sex and politics. Really? With a sixteen year old?

So obviously, some of the questions are way too involved for someone like Bieber. Not saying he isn’t a smart kid, but I’m saying in such a candid scenario, he was left a little vulnerable and the answers well, speak for themselves. Vanessa asks Justin about having sex. His response? “I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them”. Well said Justin. Not quite waiting for marriage but not quite I’m already having sex. We get it.

Next, the two begin to talk about the difference between health care in Canada and the US in which Justin immediately explains how great free health care in Canada is. He tells a story about how his bodyguard’s baby was premature and now has to pay for it with tons of medical bills. In Canada, he explains that if your baby is premature, it stays in the hospital until things are fine and then you go home. No worries.

Getting To Know Best New Artist Esperanza Spalding

In: Music, Tyrell

It was potentially the biggest Grammy shocker of the night when heavy hitter Justin Bieber lost out in the category of Best New Artist to most seemingly unknown, Esperanza Spalding. I was watching the show with Donovan, Brian, Nic, Tyler and Patrick. During the announcement of the nominees, it was interesting to hear who everyone thought was going to take the award.

The obvious first assumption was Justin Bieber. With such a strong year in music sales, tours and overall fan base, he seemed to be a shoe-in. Florence + the Machine were also a strong contender with some Drake support finding its way through. But when Esperanza swooped in for the win, it had the whole room in awe but so happy for this somewhat unknown jazz artist. So who is Esperanza Spalding?

Grammy Performances And Winners 2011

In: Music, TV Shows, Tyrell

Tonight, the stars came out to play for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. The anticipation for some of the hottest performances were high, but did they deliver? Did all of your predictions come true

We kick off the evening with a tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. LL Cool J introduces the women who will be singing some of her biggest hits. Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, Yolanda Adams and Martina McBride.

Lady Gaga took to the stage to perform for the first time her new single Born This Way. After her much talked about walk down the red carpet, her egg appeared on stage and she hatched with a group of dancers in see-through choir robes. In the most simple Gaga performance to date, she wowed the audience with a full out dance routine and organ playing skills.

A busy weekend at the box office this weekend, with a few big releases that all did exceptionally well! At number one is “Just Go With It,” starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. This film has received A LOT of press, with the two lead actors (namely Aniston) making their interview rounds on all the big talk shows. The extra promo definitely paid off big time, with the film surpassing $30 million in its opening weekend. Remember the flop that was The Tourist? Eat that, Jolie…clearly everyone is Team Aniston.

A close second this weekend was Justin Bieber‘s life story, that has been a dream come true, “Never Say Never” in it’s opening weekend as well. The 3D behind the scenes look at Bieber’s journey to fame nearly broke $30 million as well! I think Tyrell and I are going to go see this one tomorrow.

Two more films opened this weekend…one did well, and one was far behind in fourth. Find out which ones they were below. Did you see any of these new films this weekend? What’d you think?

Glee” is making a comeback for their next episode. From what? I have no idea, but I think the episode titled, “Comeback” refers to Lea Michele’s character making a comeback on McKinley High’s social scene. The newly single Rachel enlists the help of everyone’s favorite Cheerio, Brittany, to elevate her social status. Meanwhile, Sam starts up a tribute band. From the looks of it, the subject of their tribute will be Justin Bieber. LOL.

Now that you know the two main storylines for Tuesday’s upcoming episode, let me share two of the musical numbers that’ll be featured. First Rachel and Mercedes take on one of my favorite songs from the musical “Rent“. The two will work it out on the upbeat lesbian track, “Take Me or Leave Me“. Ironically enough, Idina Menzel who plays Rachel’s mother on “Glee” is the actress who provided the vocals in both the movie version and Broadway musical. Circle of life indeed.

The other I have for you today comes courtesy of Artie and Sam. The New Directions’ boys will work out their inner boy band personas and take on Justin Bieber’s “Somebody To Love“. I can’t wait to see why the duo decided to take on this bubble gum track. Will it be a serenade to Quinn by Sam or is this part of another of Will Schuester’s silly lessons. Check out both covers below.

Thanks to my friend Scott, this past weekend I was lucky enough to catch the screener of  Justin Bieber’s new film ‘Never Say Never‘ in 3D.  And now for a confession – I enjoyed it.

A few months back, I got to see Justin in concert and he was actually really good.  He put on a great show and – shocker – sang the whole thing live, which compared to most artists at least double his age, is a pretty big deal.  Anyway, after that concert I kind of understood the whole Bieber Fever thing.  I love ‘I Just Need Somebody to Love‘ and ‘U Smile’…ok, I love ‘Baby, Baby, Baby‘ and now ‘Never Say Never.’  Now that I’ve admitted that, we can talk about the movie.  The whole movie centers around the 10 days prior to Justin’s performance at Madison Square Garden and also tells the story of how he started out as a kid singing songs on YouTube.

And the 2011 Juno Award Nominees Are…

In: Music, Tyrell

The nominees for the 40th Annual Juno Awards were released yesterday and Beliebers rejoice, your boy is nominated for quite a few. Actor turned rapper Drake isn’t far behind him. The Juno Awards are the Canadian Grammy’s and celebrate a year of Canadian artists and music in every genre imaginable. There is also one category for International artists who have left their mark in Canadian charts.

The awards show will take place in Toronto this year on March 27th. The first list of performers has been released and lets just say, they are going to rock the house. Down With Webster, Heldey and Arcade Fire are just a few of the groups on the list. More artists should be released in the upcoming weeks. The organizers of this year’s show promise a wide variety of performers in a mix of genres. Check out a list of many of the nominees below.

The King of Darkness teams up with the prince of bubblegum pop. Hell truly has frozen over. The two will team up for a Best Buy commercial airing during Super Bowl XLV. While it was a no brainer, Justin Bieber would be popping up in a Super Bowl ad, his partner in crime is a bit of a shocker. Back in December, Ozzy Osbourne responded “”Who the f*** is Justin Bieber?” when asked about his music tastes by a television talk show in the UK.

Reportedly, Best Buy shelled out $3 million to make this commercial happen. The Super Bowl ad will be the kickoff to a larger campaign featuring Bieber. According to USA Today, as part of his deal, Justin is getting paid to promote Best Buy to his millions of fans on Facebook. Signing the teen music superstar is part of Best Buy’s attempt to try and change their image as a big box retailer that sells TVs, electronics etc… to a destination place for emerging mobile technology.

“We’re delighted to have Justin and Ozzy helps us tell the Best Buy story. We know people have high expectations for these ads and Justin and Ozzy add a whole new dimension of fun. He (Bieber) symbolically represents something important to the brand message.” – Best Buy spokesman Drew Panayiotou

As you can see in the picture above, the two are dressed up in futuristic space outfits. It all looks very Michael & Janet Jackson circa “Scream” era. I’m sure the spot will highlight the latest in cutting edge technology in, hopefully, a hilarious way. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, I wanna laugh my head off.
