Posted 3 hours ago by John Walker in Celebrity , Music , Videos What can Bieber say? Madison’s got moxie! Young up-and-comer Madison Beer ‘s got such a Millennial Cinderella story: Once just a regular teen with a YouTube account, Justin Bieber plucked her from obscurity by tweeting a link to one of the aspiring singer’s videos . Soon, Madison signed with the Biebs’ manager, Scooter Braun, and now she’s got a video of her very own! And hey, “Melodies” even features a cameo from Bieber at the beginning! Full circle, y’all, full circle. Watch Madison Beer’s “Melodies” video featuring a cameo from Justin Bieber after the jump. The clip opens with Justin watching one of Madison’s YouTube videos with his longtime pal Ryan Butler (who you may recognize from the Bieber’s epic segway photo ), soon declaring: “She’s gonna be a star. Trust me.” The “Wait For A Minute” crooner then signs and sends a pair of his signature purple Beats headphones Madison’s way. He sends us nothing. Upon wearing those autographed headphones, Madison starts dancing in the streets and gets lost in her own little musical world, totally unaware that a sizable crowd of kids have begun to follow her Pied Piper-style. It’s only when her hometown’s resident hunk channels his inner Ryan Gosling and is all “Hey, girl, take your headphones off” that she realizes what’s even going on around her. Like all good things, Madison’s video ends with confetti, but we can’t wait to see where she continues with her career next.

I say as an artist because he just wants to be known for his music, but I think were all clear on the fact that what really what Im talking about is smoking marijuana. You understand, right? Thats the only thing hes getting better at these days smoking pot. And guys, not only is he improving hes getting close to going platinum. Case in point: on a recent cross-country flight, Justin and his crew allegedly smoked so much weed that they essentially turned their plane into a floating bong. The pilot of the private jet said that when he opened the door of the crews SUV on the tarmac, so much smoke billowed out that I almost had to put on an oxygen mask. Man, you guys! You Beliebers! You should be so proud! Rarely are the fruits of an artists labors so visible to the outside eye! Justin is so focused on the music that it billows around his head in great clouds. His love of art is so strong that it almost hot-boxed the pilot of a plane. It was like Cheech and Chong Up In Smoke, says the pilot, making a reference to a movie that was essentially the Harold and Kumar of its time. Apparently, members of Justins posse were smoking Swisher Sweet blunt cigars which, incidentally, are legal to smoke when youre flying private, unlike baggies of white powder and Justin was baked out of his mind during the flight.
Justin Bieber’s Musical Director Dan Kanter Jams With Bob Weir
How does Bieber Fever affect you, personally, as the musical director and touring guitarist? Justin’s fans are the greatest fans in the world and they’re so dedicated. I’ve said this in the past and I stand by it: The only other audiences that I know that are as dedicated as Justin’s are the Grateful Dead and Phish audiences, who know everything in every detail. These fans are unbelievable. It reminds me of when I used to see a Disney movie and I never would question it. “Oh, there’s no way a lion can speak!” I just wholeheartedly would believe in it, and that’s how they are. They know everything about him, including his whole entourage. Through Instagram and Twitter and being in his movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D my favorite movie of all time a lot of his fans know who I am now. It really blows me away and it’s really just a reflection of how much they love him that they know me. I’m a musician and I love Michael Jackson and I couldn’t tell you the name of his backup singers or the name of his bass player. But here, these kids know Justin’s security guard, let alone the whole band and dancers. It’s really fascinating. With all the music that you’ve exposed him to, and with a band that knows how to improvise live, how has Bieber grown musically, since you’ve started working with him? As a musician, he’s grown at an accelerated rate.
