Prisoner plotted to kill Justin Bieber, according to court documents

An imprisoned man whose infatuation with Justin Bieber included a tattoo of the pop star on his leg has told investigators in New Mexico he hatched a plot to kill the singer, according to documents recently filed in a New Mexico court.

An affidavit filed in Las Cruces said Dana Martin told investigators he persuaded a man he met in prison and the man’s nephew to kill Bieber, along with Bieber’s personal bodyguard and two others not connected to the pop star.

The plot contained several gruesome details. Investigators say the plotters wanted to castrate two of the victims with hedge clippers before traveling to New York City to find Bieber. The targets of the castration plot were not connected to Bieber, authorities say, and it doesn’t appear that the pop singer was ever in immediate danger of falling victim to the plot.

Justin Bieber's manager tweets out his displeasure with the Grammys

Someone left the fondue pot out in the cold!

As Taylor Swift and LL Cool J unleashed this year’s round of Grammy nominations last night, Scooter Braun — the high-profile manager that The New Yorker credited as “The Man Who Made Bieber” — was very disappointed when he learned that his prized client would go to sleep that night with zero nominations.

Braun, of course, is nothing if not outspoken, so the idea of Biebs getting bested by upstarts like Frank Ocean (who’s written songs for Bieber before) and fellow Canuck Carly Rae Jepsen (whom Bieber helped get signed to an American label deal) obvious prompted him to send out a series of mixed-t0-outraged Twitter messages.

The tweets were many, so let’s just start with the first quartet he fired off last night:

call-me-maybe.jpg

Music makes the people come together — but lyrics might be even more powerful as unification tools. Think about it: Whether you’re a rap fiend or a hater of all things hip hop, you have to admire a guy who figures out a way to rhyme “narcissist” with “lobster bisque.” See below to find out what we’ve dubbed 2012’s top five lyrics, which artists warbled 2012’s worst five lyrics, and which lyric won the dubious honor of being the year’s best AND worst at the same time. (Hint: Think “Call Me Maybe.”)

Bieber’s wins included the show’s top award, artist of the year. The singer’s mom joined him onstage as he collected the top award. He looked to his mom: “I wanted to thank you for always believing in me.”

The 18-year-old also won favorite pop/rock album for Believe, and male artist.

He performed two songs at the award show, one stripped and another upbeat with Nicki Minaj. As Bieber won his second award, he was kissed on the neck by Jenny McCarthy, who presented the award.

Justin Bieber performs 'Cry Me A River' in concert: What's he trying to tell us? -- VIDEO

There’s now one more lonely guy.

As teens the world over undoubtedly already know, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer together. People reports that Gomez ended things over “trust issues,” but Bieber’s latest moves don’t exactly jibe with that version of events.

In concert over the weekend, Bieber performed “Cry Me A River,” Justin Timberlake’s 2002 famous rain-soaked kiss-off to a cheating Britney Spears. Pause. Does this mean Gomez cheated on him? Is he trying to incept everyone as we speak? Is it weird that Timberlake’s decade-old breakup song is circling back around (and around) and coming all the way back around for the ending of another teen dream split?

This isn’t the first time Bieber has performed the song, but it is the first time that people can make a big, huge deal out of it. TMZ reports that Bieber is confident they’ll get back together (make sure to tell that to Gomez’s BFF Taylor Swift!), but if those two crazy kids really are done for good, what other songs would you like to hear him add into his devastation rotation: “Go Your Own Way”? “Everybody Hurts”? “The Scientist”?

So many questions, only 1:34 minutes of footage to overanalyze. Check out the heartbreak below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj coordinate a pool party for 'Beauty and the Beat': Watch the 'stolen' video here

Hey, remember that time everyone was worried about Justin Bieber’s stolen laptop and camera? Turns out, it was just one giant psych — so you’re off the hook, Tacoma-area thieves!

The stolen-gear claims made by Bieber and his label were all part of a coordinated publicity stunt designed to pique your interest in the video for “Beauty and the Beat,” his Believe collaboration with Nicki Minaj.

“On October of 2012 three hours of personal footage was stolen from musician Justin Bieber,” the video hosted on Bieber’s official Vevo account reads. “The following footage was illegally uploaded by an anonymous blogger.”

In fact, the clip features DIY-style scenes of a massive waterpark party, complete with beer pong, babes, and, of course, Ms. Minaj, the sudden queen of dubiously leaked videos.

Take a look at the fake found footage for yourself in the “Beauty and the Beat” below:

Justin Bieber covers Phish on 'Believe' tour

“Cover” is a strong word.

The Biebz recently took in a Phish concert with his girlfriend Selena Gomez and guitarist/musical director Dan Kanter. Now it seems his band’s taken to banging out portions of Phish tunes during interludes on stage. I wouldn’t go so far as to say they’re covering the songs – Kanter is basically working an occasional Phish guitar lick into Bieber originals – but it’s refreshing to hear something, you know, heady from the cherubic teen idol. He’s already admitted that he’s into Metallica and Boyz II Men – who’s to say he can’t also dig a jam band?

The band first tackled “Divided Sky” at a gig in Fresno, Calif.; a day later, in Oakland, they snuck “Sand” and “First Tube” into a segway between Bieber’s “Love Me Like You Do” and “She Don’t Like the Light.” Watch those two riffs in the video below at 4:32 and 5:35, respectively.

Justin Bieber has a license to ill, throws up on stage

And remarkably, he didn’t even have to stop singing!

While performing “Out of Town Girl” during the opening night of his much-anticipated Believe tour in Glendale, Ariz., Justin Bieber turned his back on the crowd, hunched over, and barfed on stage.

Though Bieber quickly trotted away following the incident, according to reports, he returned a short while later and asked the crowd, “Will you love me even though I’m throwing up on stage?” (I’m going to venture a guess and say, yes, Justin, they will.)

“Getting better for tomorrow’s show!!!” Bieber tweeted after the concert. “And …. Milk was a bad choice! Lol,” he added.

You know what was a good choice, though? That backing track! Not even a little bit of puke could stop that track from delivering Beiber’s smooth “vocals” to the crowd. Good job, backing track. You kept the words flowing out of Justin’s mouth, even as a whole lot of other stuff was flowing out, too.

Sarcasm aside, we do feel a little bit bad for Bieber. Getting sick is no fun — especially on a stage in front of 15,000 screaming fans. Watch the video (if you can stomach it) below: READ FULL STORY
