The love story between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez never gets old. These two have been on and off for quite some time now, and with Justin’s recent run-ins with the law, the saga has become much more scintillating. While the whole world may be screaming at Selena to drop the Biebs and get herself a more wholesome boyfriend, it seems like she can’t help but get close to the burgeoning bad boy.
The singer that woke us all up on Avicii‘s hit record last fall is now “The Man” at VH1. That’s right, Aloe Blacc is the latest You Oughta Know Artist. The R&B singer joins the likes of Adele, Bruno Mars, Estelle and Leona Lewis. All of these performers created a unique blend of pop, R&B and soul, something Blacc is doing on his latest record, Lift Your Spirit (out now).

Bieber was summoned to speak on charges that his bodyguard allegedly beat up photographer Jeffrey Binion last summer. He was subsequently questioned by Binion’s lawyer, Mark DiCowden, in what amounted to nearly five hours of eye rolls, scowls, finger-wagging, winks and general confusion over the English language.
Is there anything more changeable than the heart of a teenaged girl? One week she’s plastering her locker door with photos of JC Chasez, and the next she’s moved on to *NSYNC‘s far more mainstream success: Justin Timberlake. The 1990s gave tweens and teens a rotating carousel of cute boys singing songs. Some of those boys grew up to be successful men, like Timberlake or 98 Degrees’s Nick Lachey. However, for every breakout success from a boy band, there are at least two more handsome and talented guys who never made the mainstream cut. So what happened to those other hunks?

Since kicking off last month, Miley Cyrus has jampacked her Bangerz tour with more suggestive poses than you can shake a foam finger at. From massive fake (and real) tongues, gigantic hot dogs and mackin’ it with Katy Perry, she’s pushed the envelope in every way she can. But the “Wrecking Ball” singer smashed her own standards Friday night in Chicago, with a little help from a performer known as ‘Amazon Ashley’…
