Disney Star singer slash Justin Bieber‘s girlfriend, Selena Gomez just released the video for her latest single “Who Says” this weekend. The video was directed by Chris Applebaum and features Gomez walking around town, surrounded by signs that incorporate the lyrics of the song as well as fit with the theme. Towards the end of the video, she wipes her makeup off and goes “Naturally”, because “who says” you’re not perfect without it. The video wraps up with a little beach party performance where she celebrates being her.
Inspirational songs seems to be the trend when you consider Katy Perry’s “Firework“, Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way“, and Britney Spears “Hold It Against Me“. Haha, that last one was obviously a joke. Hopefully this uplifting song will bring some peace into Gomez’s life. Dating Justin Bieber isn’t so easy for her when you consider the fact that she gets death threats from his fans. A source told Star Magazine, “Selena’s terrified. She’s only young and when she sees things written about her, she understandably freaks out. Justin tries to reassure her, but what can he do?”
Alleged girlfriend to Mr. Bieber, Selena Gomez and her band The Scene have released their first single off a new album that is in the works for release this summer. After jamming out to her previous more dance-like tracks the last couple of years with Naturally, Year Without Rain and Round and Round, this new style of song for Who Says is welcome change.
For me, this song lets me know that Selena is growing up, becoming a women and slowing departing from her Disney channel adolescence. It has this nice Adult A/C, easy listen feel and I can definitely see it popping into a movie trailer or soundtrack somewhere this summer. The lyrics of the chorus are great too.
I’m no beauty queen… I’m just beautiful me…
Who says you’re not perfect? Who says you’re not worth it? Who says you’re the only one that’s hurting?
Trust me, that’s the price of beauty. Who says you’re not pretty? Who says you’re not beautiful? Who says.
As they had previously announced, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber have collaborated on a new track called “Next 2 You” and it’s just been released! The song, produced by The Messengers, will be included on Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E.” album which comes out on March 22nd. The song is really good!! Here are the lyrics to the chorus:
“And baby, everything that I have is yours, you will never go cold or hungry/ I’ll be there when you’re insecure, let you know that you’re always lovely/ Girl, cos you are the only thing that I got right now/ One day when the sky is falling, I’ll be standing right next to you, right next to you/ Nothing will ever come between us, I’ll be standing right next to you, right next to you.”
Collaborating with Justin Bieber was a SMART idea on Chris Brown’s part as it will definitely help his image after the whole Rihanna ordeal.
It’s amazing how a silly hilarious stunt can help a fledgling talk show get some much needed press. When James Earl Jones booked an appearance on “The Gayle King Show“, he probably had no idea what he signed for. At the tail end of his interview, Gayle politely asked the voice of Darth Vader if he could recite a stanza from Justin Bieber’s hit “Baby“. Even before he started reciting Bieber’s words, I started to smile in anticipation of what was coming. Watch it below and see what you think.
As an special added bonus, I also embedded a video of William Shatner on The Conan O’Brien Show. The former Captain Kirk, also did a dramatic reading of his own. He delivered a uber dramatic, complete with hand motions, performance of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. His short showing here is way funnier than the crap he’s forced to spit out on CBS’ “$#*! My Dad Says”. Check them both out below, and cast your vote on which was better.
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.
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?
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?
