Don't Celebrate Yet, we're not this lucky
So … Justin Bieber, the reigning prince of tween pop, gave an in-studio interview to radio station Power 106 here in LA yesterday and he dropped the BOMBSHELL news that he is planning to RETIRE FROM MUSIC after he releases his new album Journals this month. Uh huh. TMZ has video of the interview, which you can watch below, and you can watch/hear The Biebs make this bold promise with your very own eyes … but, keep in mind, it’s extremely likely that the little jerk is merely trying to get people’s attention by threatening his retirement so … don’t hold your breath just yet.

"I'm like Marina Abramović"
Last week Kanye West released a silly music video for his new single Bound 2 that he wants us to believe was made intentionally silly for the sake of “art”. In the wake of the release of that music video, James Franco and Seth Rogan created their own (brilliantly superior) homage to the Bound 2 music video and PITNB readers had a LOT to say about the clip. Today we hear from Kanye himself about the inspiration behind the Bound 2 music video in a new interview he gave to The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 FM and according to him, the cheesiness of the video is intentional. The video grew from his desire to take the idea behind those “white trash t-shirts and make it into a video” (ie. t-shirts like THIS). You see, like performance artist Marina Abramović, Kanye West is an avant garde artiste. More »
"I was disappointed"
Mariah Carey paid a visit to NYC radio station Hot 97 to chat with fans on The Angie Martinez Show and she went OFF about her experience as judge on American Idol last season. I mean, you’re gonna hafta watch the video embedded above to hear what Mimi has to say about her time as an Idol judge but, yeah, it’s very clear that she was disappointed with the whole experience. She says it was like going to Hell to work with Satan (paraphrase). Do you think she was throwing a dig at fellow judge Nicki Minaj (who she does NOT mention at all by name)? HMMM. The video above is AI specific and lasts only 90 seconds. If you want to see the full 16 minute Hot 97 interview with Mariah Carey, you can watch it below. More »
A Taste of What's to Come?
Earlier today we got to see promo video for Miley Cyrus‘s upcoming BANGERZ Tour and right now we get a taste of what we MIGHT see once she hits the road next year. Miley paid a visit to the BBC Radio 1 studios in London, England to perform a cover of Lana Del Rey‘s song Summertime Sadness. For the most part, the cover turned out OK but it kind of lacks a bit of the song’s soul, I think. That said, this cover performance might give us some insight as to the kind of live performance Miley might have in store for folks who see her on tour. Click the embed above to watch Miley‘s performance of Lana‘s song then click below to compare it with the original version of Summertime Sadness. More »

Most Personal Album is Personal
Our dear Britney Spears, who is currently in London doing promo work for her new album and upcoming Las Vegas concert residency Piece of Me, made an in-studio appearance on Capital FM radio to make her world exclusive album title announcement. Britney, as you may know, has been talking a lot about her upcoming 8th album (due out on December 3) is her most personal album to date and, as such, it needs to be given the most personal title ever. The interview, which you can watch below, is really cute … Britney even puts on a foam hand and does a little something with it (don’t worry, it’s cute … not Miley) but it’s the album title announcement that is the real draw. Click below to watch … and learn :D More »
On Tuesday, Paris Hilton released her new single Good Time and since then, she has been doing promo work to help generate sales. Paris gave an interview to the Bob and the Showgram radio show in Raleigh-Durham, NC and was audibly annoyed when DJ Bob Dumas brought up her infamous sex tape. At the conclusion of the interview, Paris can be heard calling the guy a “fucking asshole” with a vow that she will never give the show an interview ever again. LOL. I guess Paris thought she had disconnected from the radio station and, well, she wasn’t. Click below to hear the short interview in full and make sure you listen to the very end. More »

"Rap is the new rock & roll ... We the biggest rockstars & I'm the biggest of all of them."
Kanye West made an appearance on Zane Lowe‘s radio programme on BBC Radio 1 last night and he delivered an hour-long conversation that can only be described as … amazing? Brilliant? I don’t even know. If you’ve ever wanted to get a crash course in understanding Kanye West in one sitting, this is the interview for you. West talked about a lot of things over his hour-long chat … from his new album, to his babymama, fashion to rap music in general … Kanye talked about it all in an honest and frank way, as only Yeezy can. This chat is what I imagine it would be like to just hang out with Kanye West and just talk to him about whatever comes to mind. Whether you agree with what he says, you cannot deny that he is being as honest and forthcoming as possible in this interview. The video embedded above features only part one of his hour-long interview (about the first 14 minutes) but you can hear the WHOLE thing directly from BBC Radio 1 HERE. Kanye West is a fascinating character. Whether or not you’re a fan, I think this enlightening interview is worth listening to by all. Check it out, let me know what you think in the comments below.
