Pop phenom Justin Bieber is currently on the North American leg of his ‘Believe’ tour but the singer took a few moments out to cover the latest issue of ‘Billboard’ magazine.
This ‘Billbaord’ cover story focuses on Bieber’s upcoming album ‘Believe Acoustic’ and in the excerpts, it is revealed that the album was created not only to increase the chances of JB winning a Grammy, but because “this is how fans first knew Justin.”
We also learn that with this record he’ll chart a new No. 1 album for four years in a row, and that he’ll have his fifth No. 1 album overall. That’s more than any other artist has achieved before turning 19.
We haven’t been hearing much from Carly Rae Jepsen this year but moments ago, the singer announced ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You’ as the third official single lifted from her sophomore album ‘Kiss.’
‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You’ is the most up-tempo track on ‘Kiss’ and features a monstrous instrumental chorus and dance ready beat that make the song a perfect tune for the club.
It’s a definite breakup, fist-pumping anthem and Jepsen is singing about a boy who broke all of the promises that he made to her.
Justin Timberlake has returned with his new single ‘Suit & Tie’ with the help of Jay-Z and last week, the duo were spotted rocking matching tuxedos as they filmed the visual for the track in Redondo Beach, California.
With JT’s new album ‘The 20/20 Experience’ out March 19th, fans are uber excited for the new music and T.I. spilled the beans on some material with MTV, discussing a new song by JT, Timbaland and himself called ‘Goodbye Homey.’ “I think it’s called ‘Goodbye Homey,’ one of them is, and then there is another one; I did maybe two or three records with them.”
He also commented on ‘Suit & Tie.’ “It’s just great that he’s back into doing music,” he said of JT. “The record he has out with Jay right now is phenomenal. It was definitely a sound that was missed.”

Lana Del Rey has now established a powerful modeling career and she graces the cover of the March 2013 issue of ‘Numéro Tokyowith her signature retro style.
On the Mariano Vivanco shot cover, Del Rey looks just like Snow White wearing a white top and giant red bow with a red apple in hand. Once again channeling her “gangster Nancy Sinatra” persona, she steps it up even further with an exaggerated cat eye and light pink lips.
Del Rey’s cover story and accompanying spread have yet to be released but from what we see, it’s going to be quite the steamy affair.
After all, Mariano Vivanco never disappoints.
