Justin Bieber with The Roots on Fallon

BieberMania is back in full force with his VMA mini-comeback this past Sunday cementing his new single.

He does that further during his takeover of Jimmy Fallon last night. He performs said single “What Do You Mean?”, both for real with The Roots, and as a country ballad. The cool points for me come with his freestyle with Black Thought. Enjoy that, the drum-off with Questlove, and more below.

Met Gala Fashion

The biggest celebrities in the most elaborate formal wear. Here’s quite the gallery featuring KimYe, The Carters, Common, John Legend & Chrissy Teigen, Rihanna, Cassie & Diddy, FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson, Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union, Justin Bieber, Solange, and oh yeah J. Lo. Based on the Twitter volume I perused, Beyonce seems to be the big winner and I agree, she definitely killed. Also that Wizard of Oz meme on Rihanna’s dress. So it’s a draw.

Also, lowkey this is perfect.

Bieber Roast (Full Video)

Last night the #BieberRoast flat out lived up to the hype.

Justin Bieber bravely sat through an hour-plus of getting roasted by some of today’s biggest and up and coming comics like Kevin Hart (who played roastmaster) and SNL’s youngest cast member Pete Davidson… as well as Snoop Dogg, Shaq, and Ludacris. No knock on them because all 3 were actually really good, as was… really, everyone.

It’s been awhile since I’ve actually seen a roast and I didn’t remember how much the roasters roasted each other. That was just as enjoyable as when Bieber was the target.

But if I had to hand out the trophy, I’d go with Chicago’s own Hannibal Buress. No hometown bias, but he just kept it 100 and the results were fantastic.

There was one surprise roaster (who I won’t ruin) that was a great addition to the bill and to his credit as well, Justin Bieber actually had a lot of great zingers when he got a chance to say the last word. Finally, throughout you can also catch glimpses of some celebs in the audience like some of the Jenner-Kardashian clan, Chris Paul, Jaden Smith, and John Legend & Chrissy Teigen.

As I said, it really lived up to the hype. Enjoy the full video and some clips if you’re on the go.

Kanye calls out Nike

Last night at Big Sean’s Grammy Weekend set at the HoB Sunset, the stars were out and it was Kanye who took over the headlines. He called out Nike real quick up above saying, “Y’all should thank Nike because they made me make these songs right here,” West says before performing ‘New Slaves'”.

Also partaking as part of Big Sean’s set was Travi$ Scott, Justin Bieber, Ty Dolla $ign, Chris Brown, Tyga, YG and DJ Mustard for “IDFWU”. And as you can tell in the photo below too, J. Lo, J. Cole, and the Jenners were at the show too.

Finally, be sure to also peep an entertaining video of Kanye letting an aspiring rapper spit some bars to him last night. Love that guy’s thankful reaction at the very end, haha.

Poo Bear f/ Tyga “Work For It”

Hey, some new Poo Bear!

Been a fan since the Lupe collabs and now he has his own solo single featuring Tyga and a new music video also starring Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy, and Khalil. You shouldn’t be surprised at the names if you’ve been familiar with some of Poo Bear’s behind the scenes work over the years. Watch/enjoy above.

Justin Bieber is .. Racist?!

As we all know, Justin Bieber has been no stranger to Black people and Urban/Black music. With Usher as his mentor, collaborations with everyone from Mariah Carey to Future to R. Kelly to Chance the Rapper to Lil’ Wayne… the list goes on & on.

Recently, this footage leaked of a younger Bieber making a racist joke regarding Black people and chainsaws..

Similarly, today a new video has leaked of 14-year old Bieber singing a racially charged remix version of his song “One Less Lonely Girl” except this time, “Girl” has been replaced with “nigger.”

In response to the videos surfacing, Bieber has since issued an apology regarding the matter.

As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. Thanks to friends and family, I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public, I need to apologize again to all those I have offended. I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously, and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then, and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again. Ignorance has no place in our society, and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say, but telling the truth is always what’s right. Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake, and I’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again … I’m sorry.”

So the question at hand is do we prosecute Bieber for his extremely unacceptable behavior he displayed at a young age or do we forgive him and accept him as the man he is today? Though I don’t condone the use of racial slurs, especially ones pertaining to the African-American community, I do believe that people can change. Do I believe Bieber is a racist? Not at all. We have all said things that we probably regret or will regret at one time or another. It doesn’t excuse it, but it does show that none of us are angels. The only difference between the common person & Mr. Bieber is that he’s famous; We’re not.

He’s issued a seemingly genuine apology and from there, I think we should all move on from the topic.

And to Justin… be mindful of what you say when the cameras are rolling.

Trey Songz ‘Trigga’ [Features + Tracklist]

With Trey Songz‘ new album, Trigga, less than a month away, more details emerge with the newly revealed tracklist and features. Justin Bieber, Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign and Mila J will all appear on the singer’s summer album that already has one standout track IMHO, “Change Your Mind“.

UPDATE: Nicki Minaj, too! As Trey says in this entertaining Hot97 interview.
