Justin Bieber Was Reportedly Blackmailed By TMZ With Racist Video

When TMZ posted video of Justin Bieber, then 15, making a racist joke using the n-word, the site claimed that it first obtained the footage four years ago, but didn’t post it because, well, he was 15. What TMZ didn’t say is that the outlet reportedly also blackmailed Bieber’s camp with the video for years – “using it as essentially ransom” for appearances and cooperation with stories, an unnamed source tells Gawker.

In the meantime, TMZ did report new details surrounding a second video that surfaced yesterday (June 4), one that Bieber singing of joining the Ku Klux Klan to the tune of his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl.” An unnamed person working on one of the pop star’s video projects had allegedly stolen the footage, then tried to sell it back to Bieber’s camp two months ago for $1 million. (This price is said to have then dropped to $500,000.) According to Gawker’s report, Bieber’s camp decided that, because the footage looks dated at this point, negotiations weren’t worth having.

UPDATED: Justin Bieber Jokes About Joining Ku Klux Klan In Newly-Surfaced Video: Watch

Just days after video of Justin Bieber telling a racist joke surfaced online, another undated clip obtained by The Sun reportedly shows him joking about joining the Ku Klux Klan. According to the U.K. tabloid, he riffs off his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” changing the words to “One Less Lonely N—-” — as in, how many black people he’d kill as a member of the white supremacist group. UPDATED: The video has now been obtained by TMZ and you can watch it below.

The Sun reported on — but did not leak — this video in efforts to show “the real Justin.” On June 1, the publication attempted to do the same by leaking a five-year-old video of Bieber telling a racist joke (“Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”), using the n-word as the kicker. The Journals star wasted no time apologizing.

Trey Songz Nabbed “Incredible” Justin Bieber Collab For New Album ‘Trigga’

Trey Songz will release his sixth album, Trigga, on July 1. Among other collaborations, the studio effort features a collaboration with Justin Bieber. “It’s incredible,” he said to MTV.

Songz had released the woozy strip club anthem “Foreign” on May 13, as a teaser for Trigga. Soon after that, Bieber called Songz for a collaboration, resulting in a “Foreign” remix. “I’m elated for people to hear how he sounds on it, because the first reaction I get from a lot of people is, ‘Who is that?’ Like, who is that?’” Songz says. “Because you don’t expect him to be on a record like that, and he snapped.”

Trigga will also feature Houston rap stalwart Juicy J, plus rising R&B singers Ty Dolla $ign (“Paranoid”) and Mila J (“Smoke, Drink, Break-Up”). (Fun fact: Mila J is also Jhene Aiko‘s sister.) See the Trigga tracklist and hear Songz’s original “Foreign”below. More »

Justin Bieber Apologizes For “Childish And Inexcusable” Racist Joke Video: Read His Statement

Following the surfacing this past weekend of a years-old video wherein Justin Bieber, then 15, tells a racist joke involving the “n” word, the Canadian pop star, now 20, has expressed his regret via a statement on the matter in attempt to control any potential career damage.

“As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt,” reads Bieber’s statement. “I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance.”

The video in question was posted by The Sun, and it shows the teen singer telling a friend an age-old, tasteless joke: “Why are black people afraid of chain saws,” he asks, before answering the joke with “run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****.” More »

Justin Bieber Uses N-Word In Racist Joke In Leaked Video: Watch

Justin Bieber uses the n-word to tell a racist joke, in a video leaked by The Sun. Reportedly filmed for his 2011 documentary Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, the footage shows a 15-year-old Bieber laughing among friends as he starts the joke: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” Despite mild protests from an off-camera friend, he finishes with the n word-punctuated kicker.

Bieber has yet to respond, though The Sun claims that he tried to purchase the video “for a huge sum of money” to prevent it from being leaked to the public. “This video is Justin Bieber and his camp’s worst nightmare. Even after the year he’s had, when he’s never been far from controversy, this tops the lot,” a source said, according to New York Daily News. (Watch it after the jump.) More »

Justin Bieber Hits The Clubs With Migos In “Looking For You”: Listen

Justin Bieber has been snapped at the studio with rappers like Lil Wayne, T.I., and YG, seemingly hinting of collaborations to come. But he didn’t warn his followers of what dropped late on May 29 – “Looking for You” featuring Migos, the young rap trio behind the Drake co-signed “Versace” that took over rap radio last summer, then actually closed out Versace’s runway show months later.

The Journals star doesn’t rap; instead, he gently sings with a slight reggaeton bent, of hoping to fall in love at the club. (Like his mentor Usher, Bieber can dream.) Migos (Quavo, Takeoff and Offset) tag along like good sports, though these rap goofballs more interested in enjoying a guy’s night out than wooing girls into their VIP section. Bieber serenades like the pop heartthrob he is, while Migos boasts of killin’ ‘em like Terio.

Should Justin Bieber keep hitting the clubs with Migos? Hear “Looking for You” after the jump and sound off in the comments below. More »
