Both Justin Bieber and One Direction were in full promotional mode all last week for their respective new albums. After the dust settled, the Canadian singer beat out the boys from the UK. Purpose earned 649,000 equivalent album units (522,000 in pure album sales) during its first week. Meanwhile, 1D moved 459,000 units, 402,000 in pure album sales.

Not only his Purpose, the Bieb’s sixth No. 1 album, but it also represents his largest sales week ever. His previous best was Believe which sold 374,000 during its first week in 2012. Sadly though for Justin, he’ll only have a one-week reign. Adele is set to crush Billboard records when her numbers are tallied next week.

Speaking of records, Justin achieved a big one over on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Find out below.

Heading into the 43rd annual American Music Awards, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift led the pack with six nominations apiece. The “Hills” singer walked away with two awards while the “Blank Space” chanteuse snagged three statues. Other multiple winners of the night were One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line.

As with most music awards show, the telecast was all about the performances. Jennifer Lopez kicked the night off by performing a slowed-down version of her hit “Waiting For Tonight” before pulling an insane dance routine to a mashup featuring the year’s biggest hits. Girl slayed it and then some.

Other memorable performances were Demi Lovato joining Alanis Morissette on “You Oughta Know,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor making out to “Marvin Gaye,” Ariana Grande performing “Focus” without her signature high ponytail, Pentatonix with their Star Wars tribute and Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber each singing a medley of their hits. By far though, the emotional high point was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Check out all the performances below and share your thoughts on your favorite AMA moment.

The 25-year-old singer absolutely dominated this year with her sold-out star-studded concert tour, big-budget music videos and appearing on practically every magazine cover out there.

Right behind Swift are Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd with five nods apiece. Both are also competing in the Artist of the Year category along with Luke Bryan, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Maroon 5, One Direction, Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor. Talk about a crowded field.

Almost every boy goes through an astronaut phase growing up. I did after visiting the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. One Direction just got to live out every boy’s childhood fantasy. Like we needed another reason to hate them 😉

For their “Drag Me Down” music video, those lucky mofos got to experience real astronaut training at NASA including interacting with Robonaut, driving the Space Exploration Vehicle rover and using a Partial Gravity Simulator. Ugh, so jealous.

“Drag Me Down” is the lead single off their fifth studio album and first without Zayn. I will say, it’s the best track I’ve heard from them in a while. Check out the clip below. Liam looks especially hot in his scenes. Whether he’s all sweaty working out or smoldering while suited up in his astronaut gear, I could just eat him up.

Amy Schumer Hilariously Parodies One Direction

In: Donovan, Music

Amy Schumer delivers yet another hilarious home run. The 33-year-old comedienne takes aim at the now-quartet boyband, One Direction, with her brand new clip.

Schumer uses their single “What Makes You Beautiful” off their debut LP, Up All Night, as inspiration. The English boyband infamously sang to their fans that they “don’t need make-up to cover up.” It appears that only applies to a certain few. In Amy’s case, more is more. The boys change their tune once they see her sans cosmetics.

Girl, You Don’t Need Makeup” is a cornucopia of LOL pop culture references. There’s so many, I can’t pick which are my favorites. It starts slow but clicks into high gear during the second verse. Check out all the fun below.

The first official photo of One Direction since Zayn Malik’s departure has been unveiled. The group’s management team uploaded it on their official website today with the following new bio.

“One Direction are Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan. In just over five years together they have impressively sold more than 50 million records, have achieved a total of 91 number ones and performed to over 7.5 million fans worldwide.”

It’s like he never even existed 😉 While I liked Zayn, I admit I’m sorta liking the dynamic of the boy band as a quartet. Question is, will they still sell a boatload of records and merchandise as a foursome?

What do you think of the photo? Can 1D survive without Malik? Sound off below.

Zayn Malik’s First Solo Track Leaks Online

In: Donovan, Music

When Zayn Malik announced his surprising departure from One Direction, a few assumed he needed some much needed rest and relaxation. It appears the 22-year-old wasn’t needing time out of the spotlight but rather have the spotlight shine solely on him. Apparently, he’s been working on solo material for some time now. Shady, shady, shady.

A demo of his collaboration with Naughty Boy leaked online Monday. “I Won’t Mind” is a slow-tempo jam with an acoustic vibe. It’s really hard to pass full judgement on an unfinished product, but I’m not feeling it.

In my opinion, I don’t think Malik will do well without his bandmates. If anyone from One Direction is the Justin Timberlake of the bunch, I’d put my money on either Liam or Harry. Give his solo work a listen below and weigh in afterward.

The worlds of many teenage girls as they knew it crumbled earlier this week when Zayn Malik announced his departure from One Direction. Devastated by the news, they took to social media to express their outrage and broken hearts.

Funny or Die decided to capitalize on the situation by enlisting Billy Zane for their latest spoof. For those youngins who don’t know who Billy is, he’s that bad guy from Titanic 😉

The 49-year-old actor mistakenly thinks all the tweets are directed towards him. “I just way to say to my adoring and mysteriously heartbroken fans, you light up my world like nobody else. You don’t know you’re beautiful, and that is what makes you beautiful.” He jokingly adds, “I don’t want to be nitpicky, but just for the sake of record, it’s Z-A-N-E, not Z-A-Y-N.”

Check out the amusing clip below which features Zane also reciting a few “My Heart Will Go On” lyrics.
