Justin Bieber wants you to know he always keeps a #smile on his face — even when his heart is aching, or a neighbor is alleging that he was threatened by the 19-year-old star.

Bieber continued the promotional trail for his upcoming documentary Believe Friday, unveiling a new clip called “#Smile.” In it, Bieber sits down with the director of the film, John M. Chu, and explains how he maintains his upside-down frown even through some of his toughest moments — and while performing in front of millions.

Justin Bieber drops Diplo-produced 'All That Matters': Hear it here

Justin Bieber is determined to show you how all-grows-up he is.

Last week, the young man dropped the Timberlake-y “Heartbreaker,” but that was just the beginning. His ten-week “Music Mondays” strategy continues today with “All That Matters,” another smooth, low-key R&B jam designed to seduce your ears, and maybe (just maybe) more.

The track even boasts Diplo as a producer, a move that threatens to imbue his new grooves with some bona fide cred.

Does it work? Give “All That Matters” a spin below and find out for yourself:

Justin Bieber releases 'Heartbreaker,' his first #MusicMonday single: Hear it here

Last week, Justin Bieber announced Music Mondays –in which he’ll unveil a new single every Monday for the next ten weeks.

“Heartbreaker” premiered late last night, though versions of this song have been kicking around the dusty corners of the Internet for a while now. It’s an atmospheric slow jam that comes complete with a ’90s style spoken-word bit in the middle.

It really wouldn’t sound out of place on Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, which bodes well for Bieber or says terrible things about Timberlake, depending on who you are.

The release of “Heartbreaker”  — and the nine more Mondays to come — will get Beliebers primed for a new 3D concert movie said to be coming soon. The new song is available on iTunes right now, though you can also give it a spin below.  READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber proves that singing, dancing, and mustache-harvesting are not his only talents in singer Maejor Ali’s video for Lolly, where he taps into his rapping alter-ego Shawty Mane.

Teaming up with rapper Juicy J, Bieber appears shirtless, flexing his chain, and delivering verses about a few things that would obviously surface in the mind of a young superstar: models, Pellegrinos and Netflix.

You think Biebs has what it takes to stand next to the lyrical greats? Check out the video below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber freaks out already on-edge Batman fans with Instagram photo

Justin Bieber is many things: a pretty good singer, an accomplished drummer, target practice for the CSI crew, and a top-shelf Internet troll.

On Friday night, the 19-year-old Canadian star posted a photo to his Instagram account that featured a copy of a script labeled Batman Vs. Superman, complete with a “BIEBER” watermark across it and a caption that read, “#robin ??” Not surprisingly, the photo quickly made the rounds. Some fans of Batman, who already claim to have been traumatized by the casting of Ben Affleck as the next Bruce Wayne, quickly went nuts, loudly declaring that “Batman would be ruined forever” should Bieber find his way into the next film, which will also feature Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman.

Miley Cyrus and the rise of #YOLO pop

MILEY-CYRUS-CONCERT.jpg

One week ago, Miley Cyrus left the nation reeling after her performance of “We Can’t Stop” and “Blurred Lines” at the Video Music Awards. Parents watched in horror as the girl they remembered as Hannah Montana twerked in a teddy-bear leotard, gyrated on Robin Thicke‘s crotch in nothing more than a creamsicle bikini, and rubbed her nether-regions with a phallic foam finger. The whole display was provocative, pointless, and, for most viewers, shocking.

But in all actuality, Cyrus’ deliberately vexing presentation wasn’t shocking at all. “We Can’t Stop” is a natural extension of the “Can’t Be Tamed” philosophy that Cyrus has been peddling since 2010. And by the same token, the song — in its irreverent disregard of all people in the name of a good time — is the crystallization of pop music’s ideals over the past year. In the wake of fun.‘s “We Are Young,” pop has quickly become a medium that worships its own youth unabashedly. Granted, pop music has always heralded youth (tellingly, Justin Timberlake, 32, was given a legacy prize at this year’s VMAs) — but it’s never been so self-aware about it.

“It’s not just about being like, ‘We don’t care what people say,’” Cyrus said of “We Can’t Stop” during a Billboard cover shoot in June. “It’s about living for right now.” In the same interview Cyrus said the single’s edgy video was meant to resonate with young people: “I know that we all live for those nights right now. We’re all young,” she said. “I want to talk to my fans about that.” That may sound like a shallow conversation, but currently, it’s the chosen topic in much of 2013′s pop music. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson song 'Slave to the Rhythm' leaks online -- LISTEN

When Michael Jackson died in June 2009, Justin Bieber was a 15-year-old Canadian unknown who hadn’t yet released his breakout EP, November 2009′s My World. But on Friday, “Slave to the Rhythm,” an apparent duet between the two musical superstars, hit the Web, leading many to wonder where the song could have come from.

Bieber’s Twitter didn’t provide much in the way of answers, but he did tease that something big was on the way that may or not involve the King of Pop. “Excited for what is to come,” he wrote Friday. “MJ set the bar. Not only for music but for being an entertainer and how u treat the fans. Wish he was here…”

As it turns out, the song — sans Bieber — originally leaked following Jackson’s death. This new version appears to be either a remix from Bieber’s camp or a fan-made response to Bieber’s Twitter tease. Check it out for yourself below:
