Justin Bieber & Usher: Billboard Music Awards Cover Story…

"Ustin!" Usher and Justin Bieber are hanging out in a quiet corner of Milk Studios in West Hollywood on a break from a Billboard cover shoot when a stylist enters and utters the SNL-worthy gaffe above. A silence falls over the room and a look of mock horror registers on the stars’ faces—before laughter breaks out.

It’s an understandable slip, as the pair are linked in the public’s mind for good reason: the famed R&B icon took the then-14-year-old Canadian budding singer under his wing, mentoring him into becoming one of the world’s most recognizable superstars. Usher and Bieber also collaborate creatively, having joined forces on a number of hit songs. Their most recent duet, “The Christmas Song,” on Bieber’s holiday album, Under the Mistletoe, helped propel sales of the album to 1.2 million in the US—qualifying Bieber as a finalist for Billboard’s Top Male Artist this year. And both of their hotly anticipated forthcoming new albums are said to contain new collaborations with each other. (Read More at Billboard…)

Video: Kitty Pryde, “Okay Cupid”…

One month after Daytona Beach teen Kitty Pryde released her Beautiful Lou-produced song “Okay Cupid” on her Bandcamp, inaugurating a run of fawning interviews with Portals, Mishka and Vice, she retweeted maybe the aptest description of her yet: “the jail bait Hayley Williams of Rap.” With an innocent giggle, a pouty bottom lip with “Prince$$” tattooed on the inside and a ’90s baby’s openness to social media—last week she posted a series of prom photos on her Tumblr, which also features a reaction video to Lil Ugly Mane and a photo of her smiling behind Lil B’s book—Kitty Pryde has fallen into the role of the internet’s preeminent coy white girl rapper, possibly the first person to ever hold the title.

Though she has released an EP, The Lizzie McGuire Experience, Kitty’s two best songs came after it: “Okay Cupid” and “Justin Bieber.” She shines by balancing young love talk—I wrote your name on my binder and everybody laughed at me, on “Okay Cupid”—with young sex talk, like her opening lines of “Bieber”: Boys are like milk and they expire if you’re late on em/ It’s legal for me, I don’t even have to wait on em. Together, the tracks form a tight pair about earnest crushes from afar, eerily foreshadowing Kitty’s own potential place as an idol among nerdy males. (Read More at The Fader…)

Q&A: Hit-Boy on ‘Ni—as in Paris’ Success & His Own Rap Career…

Hit-Boy is living up to his name. The Southern California native (born Chauncey Hollis in Pasadena) co-produced “Ni**as in Paris,” the double-platinum hit from Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne. With another West track (“Way Too Cold”) under his belt, Hit-Boy is juggling various projects including West’s upcoming solo album, a G.O.O.D. Music set, as well as sessions with A$AP Rocky, Nas, Justin Bieber and Big Sean.

Hit-Boy grew up with music. His uncle, Rodney Benford, was a member of Troop, a group that scored two No. 1 R&B hits in 1990 with “Spread My Wings” and “All I Do Is Think of You.” Watching Bow Wow on TV prompted then-13-year-old Chauncey to pen his own raps. However, the fledgling rapper grew more enamored with crafting beats. His first placement, at 20 years old, was the track “Forever” on Jennifer Lopez’s Brave album, and he claimed his second big break collaborating on West’s “Christmas in Harlem” after meeting Kanye’s cousin, Ricky Anderson.

Signed to G.O.O.D. and Universal Music Publishing Group, Hit-Boy boasts a rapidly expanding discography, including tracks by Lil Wayne featuring Eminem (“Drop the World”), Kelly Rowland featuring Big Sean (“Lay It on Me”), Jennifer Hudson (“I Remember Me”), Pusha T (“My God”), Rihanna (“Watch N Learn”) and Joe Jonas (“Lighthouse”).

Justin Bieber Threatened with Legal Action Over Telephone Prank: ‘Baby’ Star’s Twitter Banter Could Come Back to Haunt Him…

Justin Bieber is being threatened with legal action by two victims of an online phone prank, according to reports.

The pint-sized popstar attempted to show off his sense of humour on Twitter earlier this month (March 12) by posting a phone number missing a final digit and instructing his fans to give him a call.

The jape looks to have misfired, however, as two residents of Texas, USA are angry with the singer because they’ve been bombarded with over a thousand phone calls by desperate Beliebers who had wrongly guessed the full phone number. (Read More HERE…)
