Justin Bieber parodies Niall Horan’s debut album artwork

«Let me see that mug of yours».

Justin Bieber has parodied the artwork of Niall Horan‘s debut album, after the pair were spotted hanging together over the weekend.

Former One Direction star Niall is gearing up to release debut album ‘Flicker’, with the record artwork featuring a close up of his face.

But Bieber has now taken a light-hearted jab at the photo after posting it on Instagram, before immediately following it with a close up of his own face. You can see the two posts below.

It’s unlikely that there was any ill will behind the posts however, after Bieber filmed footage of the pair hanging out last weekend.

Posting on Instagram, Bieber shared a video of Horan refusing to smile for the camera, much to his protestation.

“Let me see that mug of yours”, Bieber jokingly shouts in the clip.

Fergie’s “A Little Work” Sums Up Everything Right & Wrong About «Double Dutchess»

0

After years of delays and the messiest rollout in recent history, Fergie’s Double Dutchess finally arrived on Friday (September 22). And it’s a lot better than I expected. The rap tracks (“Like It Ain’t Nuttin’” and “You Already Know,” for example) are fire and the accompanying visual album is surprisingly personal. However, as a whole, it just doesn’t have its finger on the pulse in the way that her solo debut, 2006’s iconic The Dutchess, did. The pros and cons of the hitmaker’s new era are summed up in her sprawling “A Little Work” video.

Let’s start with the song. “A Little Work” is a cute ballad with an uplifting message, but it sounds extremely dated and lacks the hooks to linger in the minder longer than its four minute running time. If it was supposed to be the “Big Girls Don’t Cry” of Double Dutchess, it fails miserably. On the other hand, it’s possibly the realest Fergie has ever been — opening up about her mental health and the pre-fame struggles she glossed over on the infinitely superior “Glamorous.” That state of affairs is also reflected in the video.

Jonas Åkerlund’s sprawling 11:30 minute visual would have made complete sense in 2009 or 2010 at the height of the more-is-more video revival spearheaded by Lady Gaga, but it seems like a relic at a time when budgets are non-existent and major artists are filming videos on cell phones. It also struggles to find the right tone, coming off as unintentionally hilarious during serious moments. However, it sure is interesting to look at and I applaud Fergie for keeping it so real in the documentary segments that appear throughout. It’s a lot to process (the battle scene took me out), but the video had my full attention from beginning to end.

I really hope Fergie sees the Double Dutchess era through to completion and then bounces back with new music sooner rather than later. It’s hard to disappear for a decade and still have a feel for what’s hot. Watch “A Little Work” up top.

Cardi B Soars To #1 With “Bodak Yellow,” Makes Chart History

0

Cardi B dethrones Taylor Swift on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, becoming the first female rapper to land a solo number one hit since Lauryn Hill took “Doo Wop (That Thing)” to the top in 1998. There are layers to the success of “Bodak Yellow,” however. It makes the reality/social media star only the fifth rapstress to nab a chart-topper after Lil Kim’s star turn on “Lady Marmalade,” Shawnna’s feature on Ludacris’ 2003 anthem “Stand Up” and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” (I believe Remy Maalso hit number one with “Lean Back” in 2004 as part of Terror Squad).

There were a couple of factors that pushed Cardi across the line. (It was an unusually tight race with Post Malone’s “Rockstar” actually outselling and out-streaming “Bodak Yellow”). For starters, the song was discounted on iTunes and subject to a massive last minute marketing push from Atlantic. Which is just smart business. Things got a little weird on social media, however, with fanbases bounding together to get rid of Taylor and somehow diss Nicki Minaj (who is yet to achieve a number 1).

Anyway, the people have spoken and “Bodak Yellow” earns a slice of chart history. Check out the viral video below if you haven’t already.
