Justin Bieber Has Apparently Been Banned From Doing Live Interviews

They say it's better to beg for forgiveness rather than ask for permission. Though Justin Bieber's PR team are apparently wishing no one ever told this to the notoriously un-chill pop star. Biebs, who is currently promoting his new single in New York, has apparently been banned from doing any live interviews. Only taped recordings are being permitted by his team, according to a source for Page Six. "Justin's people are so terrified of him speaking live, they're doing everything pretaped," the source said. The pretapings will include Elvis Duran's Z100 show (airing Friday) and The Tonight Show (airing see more

Watch the Foo Fighters Rick-Roll the Westboro Baptist Church

The Foo Fighters were scheduled to play a show in Kansas City, Missouri, on Friday evening. However, their best performance happened before the band even entered the venue. Continuing their fine tradition of trolling the Westborough Baptist Church—the haterade-chugging church group notorious for picketing funerals—Dave Grohl et al redirected viewers to Rick Astely's "Never Gonna Give You Up" when they rolled up to the Spirit Center in the back of a pickup, proving the Internet bait and switch is just as glorious IRL. Shout out to the guy in the graphic Speedo for keeping with the 1987 theme. see more

Wild Things: Lion Babe Roars Into NYC's Afro-Punk Fest

Ever since young Jillian Hervey travelled to South Africa with her mother, beauty queen turned pop star turned actress Vanessa Williams, she has been "obsessed" with lions. These majestic creatures, known for their manes, their mighty roar, and their pride, inspired her to link with young producer Lucas Goodman, aka Astro Raw—who was born under the Zodiac sign Leo—to create an experimental R&B duo called Lion Babe. Their sound blends the hard-edged electronic beats inspired by The Neptunes, Timbaland, and late J. Dilla, with Hervey's jazz-inflected vocals, with a distinctive tone reminiscent of neo-Soul chanteuse Erykah Badu. see more

Mick Jenkins Wants to Take You Into Deep Waters

Water is a recurring metaphor in Mick Jenkins' oeuvre. He's not subtle about it either. "They say I be talking 'bout water too much / You hear that? / That's how many fucks I could give," he raps in the first track off his new mixtape Wave[s], which came out Friday on Cinematic. So I feel a bit confused about whether I should have told him to meet me at a bar, but it's 8,000 degrees outside and there are few places in NYC where you can reap the benefits of AC and just order water and not feel see more

Choice Cuts Is a New Music Service That Wants to Get Personal

Thanks to the Internet, discovering new music has never been easier. Most people use streaming services like Apple Music, Spotify, and Rdio, but those platforms lack the personal touch of music recommendations that come from friends, or the charm of new favorites found on playlists made by people whose tastes are somewhat in line with your own. If you find most streaming services overwhelming and annoying to navigate, then Choice Cuts, a newly launched service created by two L.A.-based music-business veterans, Trevor Skeet and Harley Wertheimer, is here for you. "Trevor and I are constantly bouncing ideas off each see more

The British Are Coming: U.K. Acts Are Taking America by Storm (Again)

The British Invasion: FKA Twigs, Mark Ronson, Estelle, and Skepta are all taking the U.S. by storm. The hottest new band out of the U.K. rocks a stadium full of crazed teenage fans in New York City, and the sound of screaming girls almost drowns out the electric guitar, drums, bass, and vocals while police drag frantic females toward the exit—some barely conscious. The scene has been played out countless times over the past 50 years ever since August 15, 1965, when the Beatles made history with their first-ever concert in a big, bona fide stadium. This record-shattering event see more
