Justin Bieber booed at Billboard Music Awards -- VIDEO

Can you belieb it?

One week after Justin Bieber’s animated alter ego caused a stir in Springfield, his slightly less animated real-world self caused a similar ruckus at the Billboard Music Awards. Over the course of the night, Biebs was crowned Top Male Artist, Top Social Artist, and Milestone Artist — beating out heavyweights Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars for the latter prize.

As the singer made his way toward the stage to accept that last award, something funny happened: Beneath the high-pitched shrieks that greet Bieber wherever he goes, there was a low, rumbly, distinct chorus of boos. The heckling continued as Bieber delivered his acceptance speech, swelling when he made an impromptu plea to the audience: “From my heart, I really just want to say, it really should be about the music. It should be about the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick, I’m not — I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously. And all this other bull should not be spoken of.”

Taylor Swift dominates the Billboard Music Awards: See the complete winners list here

Justin Bieber emerged from a spaceship. The Band Perry banged on big drums. Bruno Mars performed in a Saturday Night Fever suit. Chris Brown fought some ninjas. Our host, Tracy Morgan, challenged Psy to a “Gangnam Style” dance-off. Oh, and some people got some awards. Taylor Swift dominated this year’s Billboard Music Awards, which were broadcast on ABC from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday night. She claimed eight statues, including Billboard artist of the year and top Billboard 200 album for Red. But she was kind enough to let Justin Bieber, One Direction, Gotye, and Rihanna have a few trophies as well. A full list of winners follows below.

Justin Bieber accosted by fan on stage in Dubai -- VIDEO

Justin Bieber must have been listening to a little Chumbawumba while on tour in Dubai, as he did in fact get knocked down and get back up again.

During Sunday night’s performance at Dubai’s Sevens Stadium, a fan broke through Bieber’s security and bounded toward the singer during a run through the title track from his latest album Believe. He didn’t get very far: A guard stormed the stage and tackled the overzealous fan, knocking over a grand piano. Ever the professional, Bieber simply sauntered away from the fracas and continued on with the song. It’s the latest unfortunate incident in a year full of them, involving fights, drugs, Anne Frank, and at least one monkey.

Check out fan-shot video of the incident below.  READ FULL STORY

Anne Frank House responds to Justin Bieber controversy

Last week, pop singer and teenager Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, a museum dedicated to preserving the memory of a young Jewish girl’s experiences and courage while living under Nazi rule.

When leaving, Bieber stopped and signed the guest book. This is what he wrote:

“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

The world was not pleased.

'All Around the World': Justin Bieber's new music video

JUSTIN-BIEBER-LUDACRIS.jpg

Justin Bieber’s newest single is “All Around the World,” and the song’s video follows through on the title, showing El Bieberino at different stops on his global tour. The Eiffel Tower! The Pyramids! Boats! The multiple-concert approach also allows the video to show off Justin Bieber in an all-white suit and in a leather-jacket outfit. Ludacris appears for a guest-verse, indicating that this may all be a stealth prequel to Fast & Furious 6. READ FULL STORY

Norway schools cave to Justin Bieber tour and reschedule midterms

Norway, like, really likes Justin Bieber — which would usually be a useless sentiment (don’t we all?) except that five different Norwegian schools have rescheduled midterms so as not to conflict with the pop star’s oncoming “Believe” tour.

Five schools have moved their midterm exams up a week to allow students to go to the concert on April 16 and 17, Norway’s Ministry of Education and Research announced yesterday. “I am concerned that students should be concentrating when they take tests and midterms,” the country’s education minister Kristin Halvorsen told the Associated Press.

Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean wrote a rejected Justin Bieber song

Odd Future figurehead Tyler, the Creator has a new album out today called Wolf, but he’s more interested in talking about a missed opportunity from last year.

In a conversation with Billboard, Tyler noted that he and Odd Future cohort (and Grammy winner) Frank Ocean collaborated on a song for Justin Bieber’s 2012 album Believe, but the track was ultimately rejected.

“I’ve got so many beats and songs, but no one’s giving me a chance yet,” he said. “I want to take Justin Bieber for a month and just lock him up in a cage where we sit and make music. He’s one of the most successful people in the world, but his music could be so much tighter.”

Even without the Odd Future contributions, Believe still had top-shelf writing and production from luminaries like Hit-Boy, Diplo, Drake, Rodney Jerkins, and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. Tyler’s quest to make his impact on the teen pop world may come later this year, as he worked on the forthcoming Miley Cyrus album on music produced by Pharrell Williams.

What would the Bieber/Odd Future collaboration have sounded like? In an ideal world, the Canadian Sensation would have recorded a spiritual sequel to Ocean’s “Crack Rock.”

Green Day live: 21 thoughts from the scene of their long-awaited return to the road

On Thursday night, Green Day made their long-awaited official return to the road at the Allstate Arena in suburban Chicago. I was there both as a professional (you can read my full critical take on the show in next week’s issue of EW), and as a longtime admirer of the group whose fandom has waxed and waned over the course of their career. Below is a series of musings about the scene that was.

1. Green Day performed a handful of club dates leading up to their South By Southwest showcase, but this was the first show of the proper arena tour (dubbed the 99 Revolutions Tour, after the track on ¡Tre!) the band was supposed to start a few months ago. Though frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has been in rehab for the last few months, there were no references made by the band that they had ever been away. It was business as usual, without any nods to the news.

2. Just because the band ignored it didn’t mean the crowd did as well. There were a handful of signs held up by fans on the GA floor expressing their support of Armstrong through his recovery. One read: “You are always here for us, now we’re here for you.” There was also a guy who brought a cardboard cutout of Justin Bieber, a reference to Armstrong’s infamous on-stage rant in Las Vegas last fall—the incident that led directly to his rehab stint. (Too soon, dude!)

3. Even if the show wasn’t strictly sold out, the band will most certainly make up the difference in merch: The lines for T-shirts (and hoodies and hats and copies of Kerplunk on vinyl) were huge, which meant that the bulk of the crowd missed opening act Best Coast in favor of snagging gear.
