  • Justin Bieber Strikes Deal With YouTube For New Project

    Justin Bieber is partnering with YouTube for something big, but we'll have to wait until 2020 to see what it is.

     

    YouTube announced on Thursday (May 2) that the platform is working alongside Bieber to bring some sort of "top secret" project to fruition next year during its Broadcast presentation for advertisers

    It “promises to be one of the most talked-about YouTube originals ever,” said Robert YouTube’s chief business officer Robert Kyncl.

     

    During the event, the streaming platform indicated that all of its new and returning original series and specials, presumably including whatever it is that Justin's starring in, will be available for free with ads beginning this summer. This is in stark contrast to its previous offerings, which would often require users to purchase paid subscriptions to see original content.

     

    Bieber's upcoming project marks a return to the very vehicle that made him famous in the first place. The Canadian pop star originally gained notoriety after posting musical performances and covers to YouTube as early as 2007. His version of classics by the likes of Stevie Wonder and Usher caught manager Scooter Braun's eye, who reached out to Bieber and got him started on the path to stardom. Braun has remained Bieber's manager ever since.

  • Hendrix @ Woodstock

    How did Hendrix manage to keep the crowds entertained for two whole hours? The rock star started his act off with a rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” national anthem. That was until it took a slightly more political turn, as he provided a voice for the many young people who opposed what was going on in the world of current affairs.

    Crowds were shocked as Hendrix started to slow down the anthem’s rhythm until the lyrics were entirely altered to form his very own protest against America. By translating the lyrics of the song to their literal meaning, Hendrix tried to highlight the bitter truth behind the American military. Today, this gig stands as one of the most defining moments of the Sixties.

  • Ariana Grande reveals how her mental health changed how she releases music

    Ariana Grande shows no sign of slowing down during the most prolific year of her career.

    After releasing two albums in six months, "Sweetener" in August 2018 and "Thank U, Next" in February 2019, Grande tweeted that she has more new music on the way, and also shared how her new, more spontaneous approach to releasing music actually helped her mental health.

    "man, let’s drop it tomorrow night @VictoriaMonet," she wrote on Twitter about her potential new song, tagging her songwriting collaborator Victoria Monet. "seven rings is ab to be number one for eight weeks and the album might go back to no. 1 too.... we need to celebrate tbh ! life too short and too sweet rn."

    Grande then took to Instagram Stories to elaborate on why she's opted for a less formal strategy for releasing her new music, explaining that navigating promotional cycles for her previous albums left her feeling exhausted.

    “Jus saying, thanks for being supportive of my random, impulsive and excessive music releases. The first few years of this were really hard on my mental health and energy," she wrote, according to screenshots obtained by People and the Independent

    “I was so tired from promo trips and was always losing my voice and never knew what city I was in when I woke up,” she added. “It was so much. It was worth it and I am grateful for everything I learned and accomplished when I did things that way, of course.”

    Grande previously talked to Billboard about her goal of "(putting) out music in the way that a rapper does," inspired by hip-hop artists' more experimental release strategies.

    "I feel like there are certain standards that pop women are held to that men aren't," she told the outlet. "We have to do the teaser before the single, then do the single, and wait to do the preorder, and radio has to impact before the video, and we have to do the discount on this day, and all this (expletive). It’s just like, ‘Bruh, I just want to (expletive) talk to my fans and sing and write music and drop it the way these boys do. Why do they get to make records like that and I don’t?’ So I do and I did and I am, and I will continue to.”

    Grande's "7 Rings" spent a seventh week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 charts, following the seven-week reign her previous single "Thank U, Next" had at No. 1 on the charts last year.

  • Joe And Nick Jonas Were Upstaged By Their Wives At The 2019 Met Gala

    It was a dazzling date night at the Met Gala for the Jonas Brothers on Monday (May 6). Well... for two of them, at least. While Kevin was savoring some quality family time at home, his younger bros Joe and Nick accompanied their respective spouses to the star-studded ball, rocking quite the eye-catching looks.

     

    Let's start with Joe and Sophie Turner, who made their red carpet debut as a married couple after spontaneously tying the knot in Las Vegas last week. They rocked '80s-inspired, geometric ensembles, with the Game of Thrones actress turning heads in a belted jumpsuit, electric blue eye makeup, and metallic highlights in her hair.

    As for Nick and Priyanka Chopra Jonas — who are co-chairs of this year's event — they returned to the spot where all the romantic buzz about them started. The pair attended the Met Gala in 2017 as each other's date for Ralph Lauren, but weren't together at the time. Before arriving tonight, Nick reflected on that evening by sharing a throwback pic on his Instagram Story and writing, "Little did I know, this incredible woman would become my bride." Awww!

     

    Fashion-wise, Priyanka commanded attention with a regal twist on the evening's "Camp" theme, wearing a silver dress with a feathered skirt and a towering crown. Her husband, meanwhile, looked sharp in a white suit with silver bedazzles shoes, a stylish ear cuff, and a thin mustache that resembles the ones he and Joe both flaunted in the band's "Cool" video.
