Everyone knows Justin Bieber has a badass bodyguard who’ll fuck you up if you try to harm a hair on the Biebs’ $750 coiffure. Which explains why the various Bieber-hater clans of the Internet resorted to hiring ninjas to infiltrate last night’s Grammys and destroy him.
The mercenaries came to the totally culturally irrelevant awards ceremony armed with throwing stars, poison darts, and their cloaks of invisibility to carry out their mission (and possibly catch a glimpse of Gaga getting hatched from an egg before, a sight not even ninjas get to see every day). But not long after the chorus to Bieber’s hit “Never Say Never” kicked in with “and there’s just no turning back/when your heart’s under attack,” the ninjas hired to kill the 16 year-old pop sensation realized that that was exactly what was happening to them.
Their cold ninja hearts were under attack, besieged with fever…Bieber Fever.

Does the world need another high school musical? No. Yes? I dunno–it depends on how you feel about that sort of thing. But after Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens broke up last month–or did they?–because “they just grew up,” and with Zac graduating to new man roles like his part in The Lucky One, for which he put on lots and lots of man-muscle in order to play a war veteran with a manly albeit curious Southern accent–Get it people? Zac Efron is a man, now, okay?–something must be done to fill this terrible, awful void. Plus, high school musicals move nail polish units, apparently.
Enter Lemonade Mouth, brought to you by Disney Channel Original Movies–producers of HSM–the plot of which sounds something like The Breakfast Club meets School of Rock for the Belieber set. In other words, it will be awful! And, in other words, I will be watching it late at night on my DVR when I can’t sleep and am particularly vulnerable to bad TV starring teens with impossibly good skin who will make me feel only more wretched and old than I already do!
I will also be watching Lemonade Mouth for Hayley Kiyoko (pictured, center), who plays one of the lead misfits. Because the 19 year-old of Japanese descent is crazy talented. She plays the drums, keys, guitar, and writes her own music. I’m particularly partial to the song “Lungs” on her MySpace (listen here). She’s also in a girl group called The Stunners who opened for the Biebs last summer, not that you care (I mean, I don’t). And she’s so pretty in a tomboyish way-Hayley played Velma in both Cartoon Network Scooby Doo movies–she kind of demands your attention. Added bonus: she’s goofy as hell, as witnessed by this YouTube video she made last summer, when she and girl-groupmate Lauren Hudson, who’s also Asian, got stuck in the back of their tour van:

Chris Manning of Urlesque deconstructed the rapid ascent of Super Junior member Kim Hee Chul from K-pop idol to Twitter superstar (Kim’s name, relatively unknown by most American audiences, became a trending topic for nearly a week, as recently as this morning), which has even inadvertently placed him in a media battle with Twitter’s crowned pretty-boy prince, Justin Bieber.
According to Manning, it all began when Kim tweeted Uface sketches of himself and other K-pop notables, which fans quickly gobbled up like banchan. The blogs took notice and hyped up the chatter. Kim knew he was onto something good, so he stepped up his game: replying, retweeting, taking his act to Facebook. And then people that didn’t even know who or what he was began to notice, many tweeting about the fact that they didn’t even know who or what he was. And so Kim rose to the top. This is the science of social networking, people! You can’t make this shit up.
We love that Super Junior fans (E.L.F.s) are having their day in the sun, and Kim is likely to enjoy heightened name recognition from here on out! And to think, it all began with a sketch.
A sketch like… Continue reading ROCK OF ASIAN: Loving Kim Hee Chul’s UFace

A few months ago, Twitter changed the algorithm behind its Trending Topics feature to reflect what’s “immediately popular” rather than what’s generally popular or most discussed, in order to bring the Twitterverse “the ‘most breaking’ news.”
Or it was all just an elaborate ruse to fuck with Justin Bieber fans, according to, um, Justin Bieber fans.
Regardless of who you Belieb, the folks at Twitter admit that the algorithm is a “work in progress,” which may explain why “Dog Eating Contest” was trending on the 4th of July:

Until recently, I knew very little about tween pop phenom Justin Bieber except that he once performed a sold-out free show at the garish outlet mall (you can see it from an airplane!) fifteen minutes from my house, has monopolized Twitter’s trending topics for nearly two months, and apparently has the same weave as Tiger’s quack porn flame, Joslyn James.
But hey, I kinda like the kid. He’s got a sweet little Cinderella story (a young, cute, Canadian YouTube sensation gets discovered by a fancy manager who turns a few mall appearances into international superstardom and a Billboard #1 album). He seems sweet. He’s got a young Joey McIntyre’s pipes. And he kinda reminds me of Hayley Mills.
So I can see why Bay Area R&B outfit Legaci (aka LGC) decided to cover Bieber’s sugary, chart-topping hit, “Baby”–it’s addictive in a modern doo-wop sort of way. Just a month ago, Legaci posted a magical living room performance of the song for YouTube with sultry-voiced Cathy Nguyen and smooth talker Traphik, which has clocked nearly Continue reading ROCK OF ASIAN: Legaci aka LGC aka Justin Bieber’s Backup Biebs
