Featured Justin Bieber stories

The #2 song in the country this week is “Can’t Feel My Face,” a pitch-perfect Michael Jackson homage co-produced by pop mastermind Max Martin. From its disco-funk liquid rhythm to its piercing falsetto hooks to its lovestruck subject matter, the song makes perfect sense as a hit single. The only thing weird about it i… More »

Last year, when the likes of “Trophies,” “0 To 100,” and “How ‘Bout Now” proved Drake could score a massive radio hit simply by uploading a song to SoundCloud, Gawker’s Jordan Sargent proclaimed him “the Taylor Swift of rap.” Sargent’s thesis was that in an environment where even established stars have trouble getting heavily promoted… More »

Ever since Adam Young hijacked the Postal Service’s laptop-emo aesthetic and turned it into cloying, hollow-headed pap, Owl City has been one of music’s most disreputable artists. It’s been six years since “Fireflies” went to #1, and although Young lingered in the pop cultural consciousness for a while — Taylor Swift wrote 2010 album track… More »

SNL Sends Up Thom Yorke, M.I.A., Kanye In “Bublé Duets”

SNL’s writers and former champions made this weekend’s holiday episode a must see. Between Jimmy Fallon hosting, and the consequent cameo-returns of Weekend Updaters Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the ever-absurd Tracy Morgan, and some charitable outreach for the less fortunate (Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sanz, and Chris Kattan) — and the fact that it wa… More »

Drake – “Trust Issues (Justin Bieber Remix)”

The Northside’s Finest made style statements at last night’s VMAs (still looking for a good photo of Drake’s sweater) which unfortunately deflected attention from the fact that Bieber dropped a remix of Drake’s “Trust Issues” via Twitter a little before the ceremony started. It’s definitely a little silly, and tinged with the cheesiness that you… More »
