Justin Bieber releases Mother's Day single 'Turn To You': Listen here

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, which means that card you haven’t dropped in the mail yet isn’t going to make it to your mom in time. There’s only one thing you can do to make it up to the woman who carried you for nine months: Record a special single and release it on iTunes as a charity event.

But that’s not going to look entirely original, since Justin Bieber already beat you to the punch. He just released “Turn To You,” a midtempo ballad that pays homage to his mother by breaking down her narrative, wherein she gets pregnant with Justin, gets her life together, finds Jesus, and later helps to nurture his nascent career.

All proceeds of the single’s sales go towards saving the Bethesda Center, an Ontario-based women’s shelter in danger of closing that also provided Bieber’s mother with assistance while she was pregnant. Give it a spin below. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber's grown 'n' sexy 'Boyfriend' video debuts: Watch it here

BIEBER-BOYFRIEND

Mr. Bieber is taking this whole growing-up thing pretty seriously — as evidenced by the video for his sexy, sultry, look-at-me-I’m-older single, “Boyfriend.”

In his world, that means one naughty parking-lot party with cars, guitars, spontaneous dance-offs and — are you ready for this, world? — lots of lady-hands working him over.

Watch the video for the Timberlake-y first single from his upcoming Believe here:

This week in Twitter: Justin Bieber taunts non-babymama, Nicki Minaj says goodbye

Twitter is a remarkable technology — allowing us to keep up with the made-up thoughts of a hologram and reduce all art to pithy put-downs and puns. It also provides access to the pyches of some of the biggest starts on the planet—including Justin Bieber, who had a weird little run with his smartphone on Sunday.

In the midst of what he referred to as a “Random Twitter Hour,” Bieber wrote, “Dear mariah yeeter…we have never met…so from the heart i just wanted to say…” with a link to this odd audio clip from the Borat movie.

Yeater is, of course, the woman who accused Bieber of impregnating her somewhere in the bowels of L.A.’s Staples Center after a concert. The paternity suit was withdrawn after Bieber took a DNA test proving he was not the father of Yeater’s infant son.

The rest of his “Random Twitter Hour,” which goes out to some 21 million followers, was indeed random, featuring such nuggets as “Why does David Ortiz look like Robocop?” and simply, “My loins.”

Meanwhile, you can no longer re-tweet Nicki Minaj’s random thoughts, because the platinum rapper has shut down her account. READ FULL STORY

Rihanna could win up to 13 trophies, and Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne could be walking home with a lot of hardware, after netting 10 nods apiece.

Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift pen song for 'Believe'

Apparently Taylor Swift wasn’t too upset about getting Punk’d by Justin Bieber recently. The post-teen princess teamed up with the Canadian wunderkind to write a song for his next album, Believe. Per MTV News, Swift will be a little bit country to Bieber’s a little bit zebra pants, though there’s no word on whether she provided vocals on the track, à la Hunger Games megahit “Safe and Sound,” or if she’ll simply take a writing credit.

Swift joins a roster of heavy hitters on the collab, including Kanye West and Drake. Said Bieber, “With my music, it doesn’t only stay in a box. It’s so out there. Everything is so different and that’s why I’m so happy with this album.” “Boyfriend,” Bieber’s first single from Believe, peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the singer recently sent shivers down the spines of his followers when news of collaborations with Carly Rae Jepsen and One Direction hit the Internet.

Justin Bieber collaborating with Carly Rae Jepsen, possibly One Direction: A teen pop takeover?

Teen idols, assemmmmble!

In a move clearly designed to make Twitter, Tumblr, and teen girls simultaneously explode, Justin Bieber has hit the studio to record a new song with Carly Rae Jepsen — and maybe One Direction too.

Two days ago, “Call Me Maybe” Jepsen told MTV News that she and Biebs collaborated on one song together when they first met in the studio. “It’s not too dance-y,” she explained. “It’s more intimate. It’s a duet.”

And yesterday, One Direction’s Niall Horan tweeted, “In the studio with our boy @justinbieber last night, it’s gona sound great!” Fellow bandmate Liam Payne corroborated the story with a tweet of his own: “Got a first listen to justin biebers new album yesterday wowww big songs!!! Its gunna be a smash… Expect the unexpected.” Bieber responded: “thanks buddy. good chillin with u guys.” READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber's much-anticipated new single 'Boyfriend' finally arrives: Listen here!

justin-bieber-boyfriend-blog

A few weeks ago, Justin Bieber dropped in on the new single by Far East Movement, giving us the first non-Yuletide taste of the plucky Canadian since the release of Never Say Never at the top of 2011. At midnight last night, he struck again, this time in the form of the first single from his forthcoming album Believe.

The track is called “Boyfriend,” and it’s built around a woozy keyboard loop, some hollow kick drums, a nice little digi-coustic guitar snap, and Bieber’s newly evolved grown-up voice. Produced by Mike Posner, “Boyfriend” proves that Bieber’s role model is Justin Timberlake, as this is the sort of musical and attitude adjustment that helped JT transition from teen-scream inspiration to serious artist.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez love Carly Rae Jepsen -- do you?

CARLY-RAE-JEPSEN

You may not have heard of Carly Rae Jepsen yet, but you probably know her friends.

The starlet, who was recently signed to Justin Bieber’s Schoolboy Records, got a major boost when a grainy video featuring tween dreams like Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, members of Big Time Rush, and Hannah Montana‘s Moises Arias dancing to Jepsen’s new single “Call Me Maybe” hit the net. In 11 days, the video has netted over 13 million views.

The Disney/Nickelodeon mashup blew up when Bieber tweeted it to his 17.5 million followers, and all the exposure it’s gotten has driven up view counts for Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” video as well.

The clip has more than doubled its views since the dance-party clip exploded, and the song is climbing into iTunes’ Top 10.

Justin Bieber hops on Far East Movement's new single 'Live My Life': Hear it here

Anybody who doesn’t care much about the music of Justin Bieber should probably find a monastery to hide in for a few months, because the 17-year-old Canadian pop sensation is about to unleash an onslaught of new material.

The lead track from his forthcoming album Believe is expected to land in a few weeks, but until then, he has lent his pipes to “Live My Life,” the new single by Far East Movement. (The group’s new album Dirty Bass is due to hit stores soon.)

The track, produced by turned-to-11 disco maven RedOne, finds the men of Far East Movement tapping into the same club-friendly swagger that sent “Like a G6″ to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

Bieber doesn’t have to do a whole lot of heavy lifting on “Live My Life” (he just croons the hook), but it’s a good first dip into the waters of his new baritone.

While we’ve already heard a full album of his evolving voice, it’s harder to tell where it’s going when the focus is on Yuletide cheer. “Live My Life” is the first real commercial peek at what’s next; listen to it below. READ FULL STORY
