Justin Bieber is taking a page out of Frank Ocean’s playbook and has reportedly decided to skip the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. Despite making a truly odd campaign video to win “Album of the Year,” the singer allegedly doesn’t think the Grammys are “relevant or representative,” especially where young artists are concerned. TMZ reports that Justin will be anywhere but the STAPLES Center on February 12 and it seems like his mind is made up.

After one hell of a year, Taylor Swift turned 27 on Tuesday. With all of the ups and downs in both her personal and professional life, here’s hoping all of her feuds and faux friends are behind her. From a not-so-peaceful breakup to being exposed by Kim Kardashian-West, here are a few of the reasons why Taylor probably embraced getting older with more enthusiasm than expected.
Liam Payne might be looking for some inspiration. As the One Direction singer is preparing for his debut solo album, he’s been taking in some sights and sounds in the States. After a little stage time with Zedd in Vegas, Liam spent Wednesday night in the crowd at one of Kanye West’s Los Angeles shows at The Forum.
Liam posted a video from the concert. In it, Kanye is on his famous platform suspended over the crowd on the floor. Liam captioned the video, “Kanye West doing his Kanye best.”

Kanye West has been wanting to fix the Grammys since earlier this year and if he’s not able to replace the “old people that have no connection” just yet, then he at least wants to fix the eligibility rules. The rapper went off on the The Recording Academy during his Saturday concert in Oakland to declare that he would boycott the Grammys if Frank Ocean wasn’t nominated. The singer’s two albums “Blonde” and “Endless” are not allowed to be nominated for 2017 Grammy awards because they were not submitted by the September 30th deadline, a move Kanye is calling a double standard.
As if her throwback to the first episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” wasn’t enough, Kylie Jenner is proving that she’s growing up right before our eyes. After posing with Tyga’s son, King Cairo, for a selfie, Kylie took over some babysitting duties at King’s birthday party. The Ferrari-themed event gave Kylie a chance to play Auntie to a pint-sized fashionista, her niece North West.
The daughter of Kylie’s half-sister Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, North apparently had her heart set on trying one of those hard-to-get Kylie lip kits. And her sweet aunt was happy to oblige. Kylie’s friend Anastasia worked the camera as Kylie decked North out in her sold-out “Trick” shade.
Check out Kylie’s videos of North at King’s birthday party below, including her lip kit adventure, a backwards ride down a giant slide and some quality time with Grandma Kris Jenner.

A demo version of Kanye West’s song “Famous” has been released and it is even nastier than the album version. In the original version, the rapper doesn’t say that he and Taylor Swift “should still have sex.” Rather the controversial rapper asserts that Taylor owes him sex.
Not only did Kanye mention his musical nemesis, but he also mentioned ex-girlfriend Amber Rose who he featured in the “Famous” music video. “I feel like Amber Rose still owe me sex, Why? I made that bitch famous, Not really, but somewhat famous,” he raps about his ex.
Missing from the demo version is Rihanna, who was replaced by Nina Simone.
Listen to the demo of “Famous” below.
