Justin Bieber Will Release a Greatest Hits Compilation Album This Year … But Will It Have Any New Material?

Justin Bieber The BestTen years ago in 2009, Justin Bieber released his first EP My World. While it has been rumored for some time that Justin and his manager Scooter Braun have for some time been thinking about the right timing for a “Best Of” type compilation of his greatest hits … especially to breathe a little new life into his old catalogue with younger fans that really began following him with the release of his Purpose album.

Well, it looks like such a compilation may not only be a possibility but a done deal. Universal Japan has already started pre-marketing a new Justin Bieber compilation album entitled “The Best.” Universal Japan has also given an expected release date Continue Reading →

Ariana Grande Named the Youngest Headliner in History at 2019 Coachella Festival

Ariana Grande Coachella FeatureAriana Grande’s successful run — at least in terms of her musical career — just keeps on breaking new ground. That continued yesterday when it was announced that the pop singer will make history as the youngest performer ever to headline Coachella. She will be just 25 years old on the days when the next festival will fall.

Ariana is, in fact, only the fourth woman to receive a coveted top spot since the festival began in 1999, following Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Björk who also headlined the event. Billboard reports that it took a full decade after Bjork headlined the event in 2007 before the second woman, Lady Gaga, got top billing again in 2017.

So, after not having women headliners for most of the festival’s history, Coachella will now have a female headliner for the Continue Reading →

Ariana Grande Tweets She Won’t Date Anyone in 2019 … Then Promptly Gets Spotted with Ex Ricky Alvarez

Ariana Grande Ricky AlvarezAriana Grande took to Twitter yesterday to make a big deal about how she has no intentions of letting herself get close to anyone again in 2019 … or maybe ever. Responding to a fan who asked the question “who is dating Ariana now,” Ariana stepped into the dialogue and tweeted “Can they tell me too?”, before she added “spoiler for the rest of this year / probably my life: it’s no one. please refer back to this tweet for further questions.”

However, that seemed a bit suspect to many when only hours later Ariana was caught hopping around New York with one of her exes — one that some in her inner circle have felt was not good for her. Continue Reading →

Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber Both Had a Very Merchy Christmas

Justin Bieber SlippersJustin Bieber took to his Instagram account over the holidays to show off snaps of some new “House of Drew” merch, most notably a pair of “cheap hotel slippers” with the “Drew” brand logo of a smiley face with the word “D-R-E-W” in place of a mouth. Around the same time, Hailey showed off her Christmas gift from her hubby on her Instagram grid — which coincidentally was a pair of the new slippers.

Shortly after, other people that Justin knows started posting on social media their own unexpected gifts from the “Sorry” singer — including his manager, Scooter Braun. More Continue Reading →

Pete Davidson Begs Ariana Grande’s Fans to Stop Goading Him Toward Suicide … and Ariana Responds

Pete Davidson Ariana Grande Social Media BullyingPete Davidson ventured out on to social media for what is these days a rare post. Taking to Instagram, Pete called out all the people who don’t know him but who still find it fun to wish him ill on the Internet, even knowing about his struggles with mental health issues.

“I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months,” Pete wrote. “I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” he continued. “No matter how hard the internet … tries to make me kill myself, I won’t.”

On her Instagram stories, Ariana wrote an initial response. At first, she suggested that people (meaning her fans) be more forgiving, but claimed that while she cared a lot about Pete she hadn’t seen a lot of the bullying because she had been “blocked” by her ex — which might strike some as a little bit of a petty comment / jab to insert into the middle of Continue Reading →

Youtube Releases Official Trailer for New Docu-series ‘Ariana Grande: Dangerous Woman Diaries’

Ariana Grande Dangerous WOmanAfter sharing some of the first details on social media yesterday about it’s latest docu-series, Youtube Premium today released a video trailer for Ariana Grande: Diaries of a Dangerous Woman.

Youtube Premium’s four part docu-series is supposed to cover Ariana’s personal life during some of the high points of her musical career. From the trailer, it looks like the series will cover some periods where there has been limited information in the past, including Ariana’s experiences after the Manchester Arena Bombing as well as her studio work with Pharrell Williams which led to Sweetener and arguably the most successful artistic era of her career.

It also looks like the series will explore Ariana’s notoriously close relationships with backup dancers and musicians during her tours. Some of her friends have pointed to her relationship with one-time backup dancer Ricky Alvarez as one of the most out of control periods of her life, a period which included Donutgate, a rescinded invitation to the White House and at least a temporary break with manager and mentor Scooter Braun.

What is not clear is if the Continue Reading →
