I mean, there’s really nothing else to say except I can’t say I’m shocked that Carley Rae (I re-named her to make her cooler) is on the cover of Billboard. I’m only confused as to why she’s not on the cover of Inventor Bi-Monthly or some other smarty pants publication.
And no, I didn’t read the magazine so I have no idea what she actually said in the interview.

I’m clearly obsessed with the Biebs today and I’m not going to apologize for it.
Before I copy and paste quotes from the interview… I really hope they create a Justin Bieber hologram—even though he’s still alive. Like, I hope they create next week before they get cracking on that Elvis one. Just saying.
Anyway, Justin Bieber is a swaggie rapper according to Mike Posner and he likes a dimly lit room filled with candles because he gets bromantical with himself while in the recording studio.
Producer Mike Posner on Justin’s “Boyfriend” rap: “Justin’s a crazy rapper. He’ll do four vocal takes at the beginning of the session of ideas, and the fourth one, always, is all rap. He loves to rap, and he’s really good at it. There was no hesitation. It was just kind of what the song called for. We weren’t scared to take a risk.”
On his recording routine: “The studio’s filled with people I like and trust. Sometimes the lights in the booth have to be dimmed and I have a few candles, but other than that, that’s it.”
Justin Bieber’s album Believe comes out next Tuesday and you should all give it a chance because songs like this are on it.
I just want to start off by bragging:
I worked the SESAC Pop Music Awards last Thursday and Usher was a surprise presenter for Rico Love who won Songwriter of the Year. Usher is stunning when he’s 2 feet from your face. And he can wear a suit like a mofo.(#thatsagoodthing)
Both J Biebs and big brother (from another mother) are releasing new albums within a week of one another in June, so of course Billboard put these two superstars on the cover of the magazine this month.
And as much as I now love Usher because of my run in with him… let’s be real; J Biebs totally revived his career.
“Without You” is obviously about my little angel muffin.

And his manager just got creepy. I’m pretty sure he’s going to regret that quote, because that’s the only quote I’ve been reading since about 1:33 PM and it’s burned into the back of my eyelids.
Justin Bieber and his studded denim vest grace the cover of Billboard magazine in honor of his awesome new holiday album (I literally can’t shut up about this album. I was asking the musician at the bar last night to play Justin Bieber. True story.) and apparently in honor of his “balls dropping”. <— Scooter’s words, not mine.
Scooter Braun, Justin Bieber’s manager, said this:
“Vocally, his balls have dropped,” Braun says.
And now to make this less awkward… here is J Biebs in the studio with Boyz II Men.
And here’s “Home This Christmas” with The Band Perry.
And “Christmas Love”
Seriously. What’s your address?? I’ll buy this album for every member of your family.
Be more wonderful, Taylor!
Billboard announced that their 2011 Woman of the Year is the lovely, enchanting and imaginary BFF of mine, Taylor Swift.
The four-time Grammy winner and biggest selling albums artist in any genre for the past 12 months, has been chosen to receive the coveted Woman of the Year Award at the 2011 Billboard Women in Music event on Dec. 2 in New York City.
The 21-year-old singer-songwriter is the youngest artist to ever receive the honor, and it comes on the heels of earning several 2011 Billboard Music Awards, among them Top Country Album for the five-time platinum selling “Speak Now.”

And just so you can fully understand… here’s why she is given this honor:
That statement has never been more true. I saw this magazine cover and thought, “who is this guy??” for a brief second. But I guess that’s just because he’s not obnoxious and on every magazine cover thanks to his obvious divorce.
(And yes I speak of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. I can now just go on believing he’s actually skelator and she drinks the virgin blood of young Latina women. No one should be shocked by this divorce. I can only pray this makes her a total bitch on Idol next year and he never shows up on the show to talk about ear monitors…. that way we will all benefit from this)
He has a precious face. He’s back to being my boyfriend…. until Prince Harry comes around of course.
On fame: “When people fall is when they’re like, ‘OK. Now I’m here, what’s next? A clothing line?’ That’s not what I’m trying to do. It’s like, ‘Don’t be a slut. Remember your dream. Do you music and keep it special.’”
I give him until next year to have a cologne called Grenade, which will be awesome!
That title makes absolutely no sense. Sorry.
I may have posted this already… or I may have not. I honestly do not remember.
Bruno Mars breaks down “Grenade” and performs it for Billboard Magazine’s studio session. Those are the facts.
And for some more facts…. he’s good.
I’m not really a fan of this slowed down version (I love the drum beat in the original) but no one can deny that this guy doesn’t have a great voice. It’s such a throw back.
I should probably pay to see him live.
There was nothing funny about this post. Sometime I just want to post music without having to be funny. That’s cool right?? You’ll still read this right?? Awesome.
So instead of the lame sauce picture (I reposted it below in my anger), we got some footage.
Basically, it is just a behind the scenes shot of the making of “Sweet Serendipity”… but I’ll take it.
My favorite part is Lee bear’s astonishment of the camera in the back pack for the walking around scenes. I think that gem of creativity was invented just for him.
Again, not savy enough to embed the actual video so take the extra step and click HERE to see the creativity and inventions unfold.
He must be really smart if he can lip synch ALL those words and fake play the guitar over a music track. Nobel Peace Prize anyone??? He has 4.0 GPA in life!
The video will premiere on his official website on Tuesday. I think?
I also came across this interview for Billboard magazine. Pretty much the same business he has been talking about for weeks, but ch-ch check it out anyway.
Oh and just a thought… what is in that Chi-town water?? We got some talent falling out of there. We have PreZident Barack Obama (with a ‘Z’ because he is so hip), Kanye West (no matter how nuts he is), Oprah (or God… depending on your opinion) and now Lee bear. I’m sure there are a lot more people like politicians, inventors and disease cure-ers… but if they aren’t on People Magazine I’m not going to bother looking them up… but you get the idea.
