John Mayer has released his latest track, a single titled “Paper Dolls,” and it has the Internet buzzing.
But not because some woman is strolling around in the video showcasing her prancercise skills. Even though she is.
Instead, the Twitterverse and Facebook worlds are abuzz with chatter that this is Mayer’s revenge against Taylor Swift – and there’s strong evidence to back this claim up.John Mayer – “Paper Doll”
“You’re like twenty two girls in one/And none of them know what they’re runnin’ from,” reads one lyric, making listeners think of Swift’s “22.”

She cannot be tamed and now she cannot be stopped.
Miley Cyrus will soon release the official music video for “We Can’t Stop” and in the meantime she’s been teasing fans with some cleavage shots, some Twerking and now a couple quick looks at the actual video.

Amanda Bynes, rap star in the making?
Ridiculous as it sounds, the troubled former Nickelodeon actress has been offered a record deal with a small hip-hop label to drop her very first album.
Producer Daniel Herman of Chinga Chang Records extended an offer to Bynes, reaching out in a formal capacity to her attorney in Los Angeles.
“She’s phenomenal and that’s the crazy thing about this,” Herman, also the CEO of the label, said. “This is the perfect home. This isn’t just a gimmick.”
There’s a lot of crazy things about Amanda Bynes, truthfully.
Herman said he has yet to secureMore >
We hope you are sitting down, Beliebers. Take a deep breath, Miley Maniacs. And consider this:
Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus may totally be getting it on.
Photos and witnesses both confirm to TMZ that the young star spent very late hours together at Beacher’s Madhouse in Los Angeles on Saturday night/Sunday morning, clearly talking a lot, likely flirting – and leaving together around 2 a.m.
According to site insiders, Bieber showed up after Cyrus and immediately headed for a table.
The pair hung out for approximately 10 or 15 minutes, laughed to up and then exitedMore >
Austin Mahone, 17, is an exuberant young pop singer who first became popular in 2011 due to viral videos online and is starting to make it to the mainstream.
It’s no surprising that the baby-faced Texan has drawn the inevitable comparisons to Justin Bieber following his rise to YouTube fame in the last two years.
Austin Mahone’s path is similar to that of Bieber’s, and while Mahone is flattered by the comparison, he tells Today that he hopes to set himself apart.
“It’s cool (to be compared to Justin Bieber), but I want people to see me as my own artist,” theMore >
Look out, country music world. Here comes Kelly Clarkson!
The pop superstar placed her foot squarely in the country music world over the weekend at the CMA Festival in Nashville, debuting the track “Tie It Up” and telling the audience:

Beware, people of Earth: This will soon be Kanye West’s universe – and we’ll be lucky just to live in it.
The rapper has a new album coming out on June 18 and, in case you have not yet heard, he and Kim Kardashian will welcome a child into the world some short time after that.
And yesterday the artist got the Summer of Kanye off to a rousing start by introducing a couple new tracks at The Governors Ball in New York City.
One is titled “On Site” and the other is titled “I Am a God” because come on… of course it is. Give both songs a listen now:More >
Last week, Tyler the Creator took the heat for Justin Bieber’s alleged joy ride, Tweeting that he was driving the singer’s Ferrari when neighbors complained it was speeding around town on Memorial Day.
Now, Tyler himself is under fire for comments made in Australia.Tyler, the Creator Curses Off Critic
It all started with feminist protester Talitha Stone petitioning to have the artist’s Visa revoked because there are rules in the nation against visitors who “vilify or incite discord” and “songs advocating rape and extreme violence against women.”
In response, during yesterday’sMore >
Justin Bieber just can’t get anything right these days.
The singer announced a slew of new international tour dates yesterday – with reckless driving and paparazzi cursing charges against him, can you blame the guy for wanting to get away? – but he left Venezuela off the list.
Feeling snubbed by the inclusion of nearby Latin American countries such as Colombia and Brazil, fans in that nation expressed outrage over Twitter.
By mid-afternoon, the hashtag #Venezuelawantsbelievetour was trending worldwide.
As for where Justin WILL be playing this summer/fall, here’s a list ofMore >
Brian Williams has sort of gone gangsta.
But he’s definitely been lip-dubbed.
On Wednesday’s edition of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host introduced the NBC Nightly News anchor covering Snoop Dogg’s 1992 classic, “Nuthin’ but a G Thang.”
Lip-dub style, that is. Still, it’s pretty hilarious stuff. See for yourself now:
Yesterday, Miley Cyrus flashed her engagement ring in an Instagram photo meant to drive a point home about her relationship with Liam Hemsworth.
Today, she has uploaded a few shots to Twitter and is showing off someone else on her body: her cleavage.
Indeed, the singer has teased her upcoming video for “We Can’t Stop” by, well… straddling an exercise bike… lying around with friends… dancing with stuffed animals… and exposing her chest.
What will it all add up to create? We’re not sure. But we bet Twerking is involved.
