Justin Bieber also did something stupid in Japan

Justin Bieber in Japan

Man, this was not a good week for Canadian pop musicians in Japan, was it? First we have Avril Lavigne taking a dump on Hello Kitty, and now we have Justin Bieber visiting a shrine in Tokyo. On the surface, that doesn't sound too bad, until you realize there are apparently 14 war criminals whose souls are enshrined there. Whoops. Anyway, now Justin is trying to pass the blame onto someone else, as the norm with this one. Via The Hollywood MORE

Avril Lavigne is defending that “Hello Kitty” mess

Avril Lavigne

Yesterday, Avril Lavigne the music video for "Hello Kitty," and the world collectively looked around, flustered, and muttered, "wait ... Avril is still a thing?" And then there was a big discussion about whether or not it was racist or cultural appropriation or just garden variety stupid. Well, Avril isn't going to take this sitting down, and has fired back by going on Facebook and typing "LOLOLOL!" So that's the kind of discussion we're having MORE

Stop that Avril Lavigne, just stop that

Avril Lavigne

Because Avril Lavigne is so punk rock, here's her new video for "Hello Kitty," where she sings about an international corporate mascot to dubstep. This might be an unpopular opinion, but Mac and Me was more punk rock and anti-establishment than Avril, and that was a movie about a boy stuffing an E.T. rip-off with McDonald's and Coca-Cola until it sh!t money. This is the musical equivalent of cake farts. MORE

Kanye West, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Kim Kardashian

Remember all those stories about how Beyoncé has been absolutely dreading the idea of going to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding because she can't be around her for more than five seconds without getting a case of the douche chills? Well, according to The Daily Mail, she and hubby Jay Z decided to bail out on the whole big event because they don't want to be on one of the Kardashians' reality TV specials. Austin Powers: Goldmember? Sure, MORE

Tove Lo has quickly become Sweden’s most exciting musical import since Robyn. Her brilliant debut EP, Truth Serum (iTunes), was released last month to rave reviews. A gut-wrenching record that chronicles the singer coping with the deterioration of a painful relationship, the EP calls to mind Jagged Little Pill – but with a sophisticated and contemporary electro pop makeover. Currently hitting the road on her first ever American tour, MORE

Already being a fan of both Simon and Wolfy, I knew MORE

Joe Jonas: Justin Bieber is an explosion waiting to happen!

Justin Bieber

If anyone knows a thing or two about the underbelly of teen pop stardom, it's Joe Jonas. Remember that time he basically told the world that being a squeaky clean purveyor of G-rated songs means you're going to spend most of your time in a miasma of booze, weed and casual sex? Yeah, that was fun. Anyway, now Joe is talking about Justin Bieber, and how it's really only a matter of time before that one goes belly up. Us Weekly reports ... Jonas, MORE

Gwyneth and Chris’ ‘conscious uncoupling’ is going well?

That's it. -- they've been trying as hard as they can to play nice for the media and not turn this thing into a big media circus. So here comes RadarOnline to say that things are starting to get ugly behind the scenes, and that their "conscious uncoupling" has now upgraded to MORE

Justin Bieber: Banned from clubs all over Miami!

Justin Bieber

Apparently, Justin Bieber hasn't made it any secret that he's been hitting the club scene pretty hard, even though he's not actually 21 yet. Yes, that would fly up here in Ontario, but in the States? Not so much. I'm just saying, you gotta follow the laws of wherever you want to be. Well, according to TMZ, he may be getting shut out slowly but surely, as three different Miami clubs -- LIV, Story and Adoré -- have banned him from their clubs MORE

Delta Rae killed it at the Troubadour!

Delta Rae

Last week (March 27th) I got to see one of my favorite bands, Delta Rae, for the fifth time live ... that's how much I love them. This was the third time I had seen 'em play at Los Angeles' Troubadour, and once again they completely killed it front of everyone at the sold out show! Delta Rae is currently on the Chasing Twisters Tour in support of their latest EP, Chasing Twisters (listen to the title track here), which is the follow-up to their MORE

Rihanna will never star in a Tyler Perry movie

Rihanna

I have a weird appreciation for Tyler Perry. He's one of the few mainstream directors actually working to make films for African American audiences, but he also makes nothing but those horrible Madea movies. Or he makes a movie starring Kim Kardashian about how any woman who wants more than to be subservient to her man will get AIDS and it'll be her fault. It's one step forward, two steps back kinda thing, although The Boondocks episode they did MORE

Canada will get Taco Bell breakfast when it takes back Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber

To be completely honest, I've only ever had Taco Bell a few times in my life. The BF introduced it to me about a year or so ago, and I can honestly say that whoever invented Fries Supreme is an evil genius. Anyway, apparently the new thing Taco Bell has is breakfast, which is apparently really, really good. Over the weekend, Taco Bell president Brian Niccol did a Reddit AMA to promote the new menu, and when asked if Canada would ever get the MORE
