Justin Bieber hurts mom's ears at concert, gets sued for $9.2 million

Justin Bieber is reportedly being sued for $9.2 million by a woman who accompanied her daughter to one of the pop star’s concerts back in 2010. Her grievance: His music ruined her ears.

Well, more or less. According to E!, Stacey Wilson Betts is alleging that certain “unforeseen aspects of the show” resulted in blasts of sound that “exceeded safe decibel levels,” which caused the mother to “[suffer] hearing loss, severe tinnitus, and hyperacusis in both ears.”

So what were those unforeseen aspects? As Betts alleges in the E!-obtained court documents, “[Bieber] climbed into a heart shaped, aluminum/steel gondola and was pulled out over the crowd,” causing a “wave like effect of screaming” that “enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.” Or, as Bieber calls it, Tuesday.

He’s probably not your boyfriend, but according to this week’s Billboard 200, you’ll still never let him go.

Justin Bieber performing on the 'Today' show this morning -- VIDEO

Justin Bieber wants to be your boyfriend. And your boyfriend. And your boyfriend! Justin Bieber wants to be everybody’s boyfriend!

The Canadian pop star brought out an endless sea of shrieking girls and boys and Matt Lauers for his Today show performance at Rockefeller Center today, and it was nuts — so nuts that Lauer had to join Twitter right then and there. (Welcome, @mlauer! Be sure to turn off the geolocation function, lest you want everyone to know where in the world you are.)

See what all the fuss is about in the video below:

Three new Justin Bieber tracks leak, with guests Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Big Sean: Hear them here

Justin Bieber’s rap collaborations: Collect them all!

Last week, we had a chance to hear Believe‘s Ludacris-featuring “All Around the World.” But hold your breath, Beliebers: the album’s other three rapper-infused tracks have hit the ever-eager internets.

Here’s the roll call: the Nicki Minaj duet “Beauty and a Beat,” the Drake collab “Right Here,” and the Big Sean-assisted “As Long As You Love Me” — which, it should be noted, is not a cover of the 1997 Backstreet Boys hit of the same name. We still don’t know if we’re sad about that or not.

Give ‘em all a listen in the videos below. UPDATE: The leaked songs have been pulled, per request from Bieber’s record label.

Justin Bieber goes clubbing 'All Around the World' with Ludacris: Listen here

Now that he’s turned 18, Bieber is finally allowed to party at the discos — and party he will.

The dance-infested, Ludacris-featuring “All Around the World” is the latest Believe track to hit iTunes (though not as an official single), and it basically screams, “We be clubbin’!”

A Euro beat worthy of the Wanted? The vocal swagger of Chris Brown? Lyrics smacking of One Direction (“You’re beautiful, beautiful/You should know it”)? Check, check, and check, please!

Between this latest offering, the Justin Timberlake-y “Boyfriend,” and the Jackson 5-ish “Die in Your Arms,” it looks like the Biebz will be trying on all sorts of new pop looks on Believe.

But does he wear it well? Judge for yourself with the video below:

Bieber down! Singer suffers concussion after running into glass wall

Great, now all the kids will be trying to give themselves concussions: Justin Bieber reportedly suffered mild disorientation after running into a wall of glass during a concert in Paris on Thursday.

But breathe easy, Beliebers: after the show, the singer tweeted, “thanks for the love but there are a lot of people out there who need prayers. im fine. just smacked my head and needed some water. all good.”

Bieber told TMZ that he was performing when a quick walk backstage resulted in him running into a glass wall; disoriented, he went back onstage to finish the set, and then walked to his dressing room where he passed out for roughly 15 seconds. TMZ reports that Bieber’s doctors said he suffered a concussion, but will be fine. READ FULL STORY

What will we see when NBC lets Justin Bieber take us 'All Around the World' next month?

International pop sensation Justin Bieber and fourth-place network NBC announced today that the modestly titled hour-long documentary Justin Bieber Believe: All Around the World will make its prime-time debut at 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 21.

According to the press release, the special — Bieber’s first on network television – will offer fans “unprecedented access to Justin as our cameras film not only his performances, but his every move on this global tour — giving our viewers an all access pass to his life over a 12-day period, something rarely seen on TV today.”

Furthermore, the TV special promises that it will show “what life is like through the eyes of Justin Bieber with the ‘Justin-cam,’” a technology that we at Music Mix HQ have been dying to get hold of for years.

Needless to say, we can hardly beliebe that this is happening. So what can we expect from spending a half day in the Biebz’ high-tops? Here are our best guesses:

Justin Bieber's new single 'Die in Your Arms': Hear it here

From JT to MJ?

That seems to be the transition Justin Bieber has made on the Jackson 5-evoking “Die in Your Arms,” the second single off his upcoming album Believe. Unlike the album’s first single, “Boyfriend,” which took a sexy-adult, Justin Timberlake-y route, Bieber’s latest returns to a more classic retro-R&B sound reminiscent of a young Michael Jackson.

(Biebs, it seems, had a busy weekend; the 18-year-old pop star is currently being investigated for criminal battery after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with a paparazzo on Sunday.)

Until we find out how that shakes out, let’s just enjoy the sounds of innocent JB while we can. Take a listen to “Die in Your Arms” in the video below:

2012 Billboard Music Awards: 20 essential takeaways from the show

Like most music awards shows, the Billboard Music Awards are so not about the statuettes that are doled out. The show — which aired live last night on ABC from the MGM Grand Hotel, with hosts, Modern Family stars Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell — is typically more about everything but the awards: performances, tributes, collaborations, and other sundry craziness.

Hell, even the fashion — hello to Miley Cyrus’ barely-there suit jacket — is more important than the prizes! And that was no different this year. Just a handful of the 46 awards were actually given out during the show (LMFAO dominated), which was jolted to life with performances from Katy Perry, Cee Lo Green, and Linkin Park; tributes to Robin Gibb, Donna Summer, Whitney Houston, the Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch, and Stevie Wonder; a collaboration between Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys; and a heartfelt speech by Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Here are 20 essential takeaways from the evening:

Adele dominates Billboard Music Awards with 12 wins: See full list of winners here

The 2012 Billboard Music Awards were doled out last night during a live telecast from the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas that was broadcast on ABC and hosted by the network’s Modern Family stars Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen.

Of course, much like the Grammys, just a fraction of the 46 awards were given out during the show, which — also like the Grammys — played more like a concert. Although she wasn’t in attendance at the show, Adele dominated with 12 awards, followed by LMFAO with six awards and Lil Wayne and Coldplay with four each.

The full list of 2012 Billboard Music Award winners is as follows:
