Adam Lambert Dyed His Hair Green: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Adam Lambert joins Katy Perry as the latest pop star to dye his hair green (above) – effectively rendering seapunk irrelevant or, as he says, “Green Hair Don’t Care.” Does he pull it off? [Popdust]

:: Pharrell has talked about his surprise hit “Happy” at length before, but he has yet to cry over its success as he did on Oprah Prime. “I don’t know why I’m crying!” he said,  after host Oprah Winfrey played a clip of fans around the world dancing to the song. [Rap Radar]

:: Speaking of hits: Mac Miller debuted a few new songs at a April 12 concert in Pittsburgh, and one line stuck out to fans in particular. “I did it all without a Drake feature,” he rapped. Thoughts, Future? [MTV]

:: Jhene Aiko exacts revenge on a cheating love in her new “Comfort Inn Ending” video. She steals his jewelry and scratches his car with keys before she sets fire to it all, making for a compelling follow-up to “The Worst” while proving she can hold her own, with or without Drizzy. [Rap Radar]

Coachella 2014: Justin Bieber Crashed Chance The Rapper’s Set

This year’s Coachella music festival has been more star-studded than most with surprise on-stage appearances from Beyonce, Jay Z and Gwen Stefani as well as random cameos from Katy Perry, Kesha and Selena Gomez. Perhaps the latter diva’s attendance inspired on-again/off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber to crash the party.

The oft-arrested Canadian superstar joined Chance The Rapper on the main stage to perform their catchy single “Confident”. Justin rocked a black t-shirt, red bandana and white baggy shorts as he crooned the lusty slow jam and indulged in some killer choreography. He didn’t receive the warmest reception initially but might have won a couple of new fans by the end of the performance. Watch a snippet after the jump. More »

Justin Bieber Hit The Studio With Lil Wayne (Again)

Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne logged some studio time together Thursday night (April 10). Bieber posted a shadowy photo showing the two stars’ backs, with the caption, “Me and Tunechi in the studio.” Biebs and Weezy collaborated last year on JB’s completely odd alien love song “Backpack,” and OG Wayne fans are surely hoping this isn’t a case of Bieber returning the favor for The Carter V.

Bieber seems to be on a rap kick lately, as he has linked up with a bunch of rappers in the studio in recent months, including T.I., Rick Ross, Diddy, Wale and T-Pain.

Check out his two posts with his latest hip-hop foray below. More »

Jessie J Really Wants You To Know That She’s Not Bisexual: Morning Mix

:: When Jessie J first hit the scene, she described herself as bisexual. Well, that has changed. The British diva went on an extended Twitter rant emphasizing that she has only had one flirtation with a woman and now considers herself heterosexual. [E! Online]

:: In news that will no doubt make Swifties cry and shake, Taylor Swift has officially joined Tumblr. So far, she has uploaded a couple of happy snaps and a gif of her performing. Who else is excited? [Tumblr]

:: Joe Jonas believes that Justin Bieber‘s current woes were inevitable. He puts the 20-year-old’s problems down to a combination of wealth, extreme celebrity and bad parenting. Don’t hold back! [The Hollywood Reporter]

:: The Webbys are kind of like the Grammys for digital artists. So I guess it’s not that surprising that multi-media pioneers like Beyonce, Jay Z and Pharrell are among the nominees who have been rewarded for putting the internet to really good use over the past 12 months. [Billboard]

Austin Mahone Announces Debut Album ‘The Secret’ & Headlining Tour

Rising pop star Austin Mahone turns 18 today (April 4). To celebrate, he announced his debut album The Secret, out May 27, plus dates for his first-ever headlining tour. “This is for Mahomies,” he said in a statement. “Thank you for supporting me and sticking with me all this time. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to be able to announce new music and a huge tour for all you guys!”

The Secret will consist of just seven songs, including current single “Mmm Yeah” featuring Pitbull, plus bonus material. (Could it include a Justin Bieber collaboration? Instagram snapshots seem to hint at exactly that.) As fans await more details, they can start purchasing tickets for Mahone’s tour starting next week. Opening acts include rising UK quintet The Vamps (who opened for Taylor Swift) and The X Factor favorites Fifth Harmony.

Justin Bieber-Approved Aussie Pop Star Jai Waetford Unleashes New Jam “Get To Know You”: Listen

Justin Bieber was so impressed by Jai Waetford‘s stint on X Factor Australia that he gave the (then) 14-year-old a personal shout-out on Instagram. “God has really blessed you,” the frequently arrested hitmaker wrote. “I’m a fan and I haven’t been impressed like this in a very long time.” High praise, indeed!

After taking a short break to work on new tunes, the Aussie teen returns with the follow-up to undeniably catchy debut single “Your Eyes” and, happily, it’s another earworm. “Get To Know You” is a fizzy shot of age-appropriate (he’s still only 15) dance -pop with an instantly hummable chorus that perfectly showcases Jai’s cute voice. Unfortunately, we can’t watch the video yet due to region restrictions — boo! — but take a listen to the song after the jump. More »

Justin Bieber Was Booed At The Juno Awards In Canada: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: This sounds like a collaboration made in heaven. Legendary Italian dance producer Giorgio Moroder has recorded a song with Sia called “Deja Vu”. In a recent interview, he said it’s “coming out soon”. Fingers crossed. [Billboard]

:: Nicki Minaj made a 5-year-old cancer patient’s wish come true when she dropped by for a visit and gave the little girl one of her trademark pink wigs. Here’s a rare example of social media used for the power of good. [MissInfo.tv]

And speaking of Cyndi, we’ve got our She’s So Unusual: 30th Anniversary Celebration giveaway happening right now, as well as our Karmin signed CD giveaway. Make sure to enter to win!

As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out the best comments of the week below! More »

Justin Bieber Shows Off His Washboard Abs On Instagram: 2 Pics

Justin Bieber has been on an Instagram posting spree — sharing pics of his new arm tattoos and washboard abs. Yes, friends. The 20-year-old is shirtless yet again. There doesn’t seem to be much of a reason for the racy photo shoot but his fans aren’t exactly complaining, so let’s just go with it.

The “Confident” hitmaker clearly spends as much time at the gym as he does in the studio. He’s in great shape and, understandably, wants to flaunt it. So good for him. But hopefully, when Justin’s legal woes are sorted, he can go back to actually making music because he’s basically famous for his bad boy antics and social media shenanigans at the moment. See his shirtless pics after the jump. More »

Justin Bieber Previews New Track Produced By DJ Mustard: Watch

DJ Mustard has become one of the most in-demand hip-hop producers of the past year or so, thanks to his laid back take on West Coast swagger and his ability to combine a sense of stillness with thudding, direct percussion. He was behind the boards for YG‘s My Krazy Life, and even before that critically acclaimed album dropped this week, the producer had logged studio time with Rihanna and 2 Chainz (“I’m Different”).

And now it looks like Justin Bieber has linked up with the purveyor of ratchet music. In a new snippet posted by Bieber, part of the “Mustard on the beat” tag can be heard at the top of the video, and the gummy bass line and snaps underneath Biebs’ croon are trademark Mustard. Bieber himself didn’t reveal any details in the post, only writing, “Girls be in the the club like OMG this is my song!!!!! Lol.”
