Justin Bieber, Skrillex and Diplo drop artistic new video for ‘Where Are U Now’

Showing off a more mature edge to his music pop’s reformed brat Justin Bieber has dropped his new video with the help of Producer/DJs Skrillex and Diplo.

Oh my God, just look at him! *swoon*

We digress, using a Kaleidoscope of fan art for some rather interesting imagery the Biebs is seen to be calmer and more reserved.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to hate on the Biebs in recent months as he is seemingly trying to turn it all around, and this new tune doesn’t help either. It is darker with a hint of dubstep flare, we absolutely love it. We’ll love anything you do Biebs, as long as it’s not drag racing or peeing in buckets.

Check out the ‘Where Are U Now’ video below:

Is it your birthday? If so, here’s a vine of Niall Horan singing ‘Happy Birthday’ as a present. God, we’re good to you.

We don’t care how cheeky, naughty or possibly even illegal it may be,  we have decided to change Maximum Pop!’s birthday to June 17. Why? Because it’s a pretty amazing day. What makes June 17 so special, you ask? It’s the day that we discovered a vine of Niall Horan singing ‘Happy Birthday’, obvs.

we're gonna party like it's our birthday.
we’re gonna party like it’s our birthday.

Unfortunately it’s not actually our birthday and the lucky boy that gets Horan and his trusty guitar crooning the traditional tune is Alfredo Flores, who also happens to be best friends with Ariana Grande. Ooh, what could that mean?

Alfredo is a photographer and videographer (we’re guessing that’s just like a photographer but somebody who films) and has also worked with our mega famous bffls faves Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez amongst many more.

Psst, he directed that Justin/Kendall/Ariana edition of ‘I Really Like You’.

So, everybody, set your Facebook birthday to June 17 and shove the adorbs video that your boyfriend Niall Horan sent to you in everybody’s faces.

Where’s the honesty?’ So that’s what I want to get to in my music now.” Continue reading Alarm Pop: Mike Posner returns with honest new EP and single ‘Be As You Are’.

When Selena Gomez came to London’s Hammersmith Apollo as part of her Stars Dance tour in 2013. Fans arranged a special treat for Selena to show how much they love her and appreciate the message of her hit single ‘Who Says’. While she performed the song, they held up signs reading “I’m just beautiful me” and other messages. They promoted the fan project online using sites like Tumblr.

Justin Bieber
When Justin Bieber visited Paris on his Believe tour, his French fans wanted to make sure he felt welcome, and they did it in a truly French way. They held up signs saying “Merci” which is “Thank you” in French. A huge number of people in the audience took part, creating a really special, memorable moment.

MP! Interviews: We talk with pencil ninja Rajacenna about her amazing artwork, Justin Bieber and her favourite person to draw!

We recently told you about the amazingly talented Rajacenna and her fantastic artwork. We caught up with the pencil ninja herself to get to know her a bit more.

Hi Rajacenna! So you’re basically a wizard when it comes to drawing! How did you first get into drawing as a hobby?

Thank you very much! When I was 16 years old I was on vacation in Italy and saw an artist drawing people in the streets, I was standing there for a while that night and I was very inspired to try it myself.

At what point did you and other people realise your skills were a talent?

I uploaded it on the internet and a lot of people and friends said to me that they were very amazed and that they first thought it were pictures. For me it were just simple drawings, so I was really surprised by their compliments… It inspired me to keep drawing and make more art!

What are your favourite things to draw?

I love creative and colorful art where you can express your feelings in, but I also enjoy a lot to draw famous celebrities and beautiful women. Continue reading MP! Interviews: We talk with pencil ninja Rajacenna about her amazing artwork, Justin Bieber and her favourite person to draw!

“Hey, I just met you.-” You know how it goes… The first thing on our list of things that Carly really really really really really really likes is giving her number out to people that she’s just met.
