Justin Bieber to Release New Music in October, Says Manager Scooter Braun

Published January 31, 2014 by gossipzoo

Beliebers out there better leave room on their list to Santa for Justin Bieber‘s new album.

According to the singer’s manager, Scooter Braun, Bieber will be releasing new music right before Christmas as well as a movie following up to 2011 s Never Say Never.

Braun tweeted Monday:

and yes… @justinbieber gives u some new music in October until December and then a special movie on Christmas.

…provided we finish the movie on time @jonmchu

– Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) September 9, 2013

Previously, Braun said that Bieber’s new music will once and for all end the “witch hunt” against the 19-year-old.

“I’ll just tell you that we’re gonna release music in a very, very different way with him,” he told MTV News this summer. “We decided there needs to be a way to release these songs in a different way than the normal album and be able to allow him to express himself in music while dealing with so many different bullshit stories every single day.”

“So we’re hoping the witch hunt’s gonna end when he really just speaks for himself in the music,” he continued.

Um, so unless if there’s going to be a single called “I’m Sorry For Peeing In a Mop Bucket” with profits going to the kitchen staff that had to dispose of his urine, it’s highly doubtful that the world will forget about Biebs’ latest antics by the time his single drops.

Dem Babies are growing up before our very eyes.

Mariah Carey took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to share some very cute photos of her budding baby rock star, Moroccan. It looks like this little one is taking after his famous mom.

The singing sensation showed off a gorgeous shot of the curly-haired tot asking a very important question:

Roc: “Mommy, what does it take to be Roc Starr?”

A few moments later, the “#Beautiful” singer revealed her awesome response:

Mommy: “Rocky, just treat it as reality!”

– Mariah Carey (@MariahCarey) September 10, 2013

There you have it. Mariah Carey parenting advice to live by. I will now repeat this fabulous affirmation daily.

Moroccan and twin sis Monroe turned two this past April. Mariah and hubby Nick Cannon celebrated their 5th anniversary in May by dressing up as a prince and princess in Disneyland. It was amazing.

The “Stay” songstress was seen leaving her London hotel sporting quite the dramatic look on her pout, turning heads with bold blue lipstick and a see-through mesh shirt for a day out on the town.

Luckily for passerbys, Rihanna opted to cover up her racy ensemble this time.

The Walking Dead: 5 Ways ‘Live Bait’ Could Have Been Better

Published January 29, 2014 by gossipzoo

Walking Dead Live Bait

The Walking Dead is an immensely popular series. So popular, in fact, that there is a network-sponsored talk show devoted to discussion of each episode alongside podcasts which analyse every minute detail of the show. There are websites and fansites and forums. The show is utterly huge, and not without reason – for the most part, The Walking Dead presents high-quality and engaging content to viewers. Yes, for the most part, it’s a great show.

But it’s not always great. Live Bait, the sixth episode of the fourth season, was probably one of the least compelling outings of the entire show thus far. Lacking every member of the main cast, the episode follows the Governor from his final scene in Season 3. As the Governor was not the most well-received character with the audience in the first place, an episode that is one hiatus and half a season away from his last appearance and based entirely on his character was going to be a risky, hit-or-miss venture.

Unfortunately, there was much more missing than there was hitting this week. Live Bait was not a terrible episode, but there were several factors that really could have been handled much better. Here are five of them.

Ripper Street 2.4 Review, ‘Dynamite And A Woman’

Published January 29, 2014 by gossipzoo

Ripper Street Review

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Without the appearance of the established villain Shine, the episode was seemingly a ‘crime of the week’ format. Damien Molony is given a chance to show-off his acting credentials in the forth episodes of Ripper Street’s second series as young DC Flight is sent undercover to infiltrate proposed Irish terrorists and yet, the first scene of the episode see’s Flight in a confessional, seeking repentance for lying, what could he have done?

With an Irish prisoner carted through the Irish sector of London, we knew that the poor lawman driving the cart would have an unfortunate end, but it was one so mysterious which caught the eye as he seemingly, died of natural causes and plunged off of the cart, allowing Aiden Galvin (Stanley Townsend) to go free and start causing havoc on Detective Inspector Reid’s streets.

Flight finally got his chance to Shine, he has been portrayed as naive over the last two episodes, now his loyalties are tested, torn between his Irish roots and his career in Whitechapel – an internal conflict which never quite reached a pinnacle, I’m sure most viewing at home weren’t too moved by his story for we are yet to know his character truly.

Galvin proceeds in his actions as a xenophobic politician is blown up in his bed. Galvin is a character to behold in Ripper Street, the 2004 Irish times Best Actor Award winner (for Shining City) Stanley Townsend moulds this fantastic character through gestures and gleeful grins, an eerie yet intriguing villain who rules the episode.

Some police brutality conveys the idea of the xenophobic hierarchy in Britain at the time, a period of tense culture mixing and racism towards the Irish, colonisation at its height. But this episode is not solely focused upon the Irish Home Front, for it is revealed that electricity has played its part with both men’s deaths. Curiously juxtaposing the Irish revolution and electricity contracts, a far fetched plot yet one which worked in Ripper Street’s world. The construction of power stations was simply the goal for two sides, the cause for the violence.


Flight constructs a character to seduce Evelyn, the violin soundtrack haunts these scenes giving them a quintessential charm, the two have great chemistry which is evident throughout. The episode is beautifully coloured, bright and charming, casting Flight and Evelyn half in light and half darkness as they both lie, her claiming she has no father, and he playing the part of Bertrand. The most interesting scene came from Jackson giving Flight lessons in seduction, before Drake gives him a black eye for show, a whole-heartedly scene that displays the friendship and humour between the leads. Reid and Cobden’s relationship seems like it would reach a romance and yet Reid rejects her advances, the only sparks (I apologise for awful puns) are those of a gruesomely fried goats at an electricity demonstration.

A paternity struggle is thrown into the mix at the climax as a plot to blow up politicians is placed in front of Galvin by the man who freed him, one who looks to profit from such an ordeal. As always, Reid and co. arrive at the right moment to foil the villainy, before an ending that resonates that of the first episode of the show.

As the show continues to try to develop to something more than just a police procedural, the audience, for the second week running, have their sympathies lie with the ‘antagonists’. The episode was not the pinnacle of the shows run, i’m sure that is soon to come, as the pace of the episode remained pedestrian, most of the time to the stories benefit but at some points it kept it in the realms of just a good show.

As a side note, if you were watching Ripper Street on BBC you may have noticed the craftily placed advert for Panorama’s Britain’s Secret Terror Force which will focus on the troubles and Britain’s secret army against the IRA, this was definitely not just a coincident.

Doctor Who: 10 Most Traumatic Companion Departures

Published January 28, 2014 by gossipzoo

Doctor Who Rose Departure

Where would the Doctor be without his companions? In recent years he’s had no more than two at a time, but in the Classic era, it felt sometimes like the TARDIS was abuzz with activity. But still, one thing was for certain – every companion who strides in and mutters “it’s bigger on the inside!” for the first time has to eventually leave at some point in the future.

These exits have been varied. Quite a few have left to lead new lives with new loves in a foreign or distant land (either by location, or by time itself). A few have been simply written out abruptly, such as Liz Shaw, whose departure was simply mentioned in the following episode. Other characters have also failed at being companions – NuWho’s Adam stands out – while others have shuffled off mortal coil althogether, with Katarina being the first companion to die in the adventure The Daleks’ Master Plan.

Katarina was not the final companion to die on screen, or at least being given a sort of death sentence – Amy Pond and Rory Williams left under such circumstances recently – which was very similar to the scenario faced by Rose Tyler. Essentially all three were stuck in situations where they couldn’t see the Doctor anymore, with all the tragedy that brings.

So with this in mind, what were the most traumatic departures for companions? Who were we attached to and didn’t get their happy ending? Here is my top ten…
