Justin Bieber recently sent out invitations to his sweet 16th birthday party on March 1 in Los Angeles. The party will have sports such as paintball, basketball, sumo wrestling, laser tag, etc. However, kids are not allowed to go unless their parents sign a waiver that states, ‘I fully understand my/minor’s participation may involve risk or serious injury or death.’
Justin Bieber used Twitter on Tuesday to unveil the track listing for his new album, ‘My World 2.0,’ which not only includes his first single, ‘Baby,’ and his second single ‘Never Let You Go,’ but it also has a song that the Canadian singer wrote specifically for his fans.
“Anyone want to know the names of all the songs on MY WORLD 2.0?” he asked. Minutes later, he tweeted that ‘Smile,’ the fourth song on the album, is “the song I wrote for my fans and dedicate to them.”
But there’s plenty more in store for Justin’s sophomore record. He collaborates with Sean Kingston on ‘Eenie Mini’ and another special guest on ‘Overboard,’ who the Justin has yet to reveal. The 15-year-old pop star says the song ‘Up’ is amazing and possibly his favorite, and the final track, ‘That Should Be Me,’ is a song about how he should “be your man.”
The second song on the album, ‘Somebody to Love,’ shares same title as the 1976 hit by Queen and smash cover sung by the cast of Glee, but we confirmed with JB’s label that Justin’s track is, in fact, an original song.
In more album news, uber fans will have the chance to score two additional tracks — ‘Where Are You Now’ and ‘Kiss and Tell’ — through exclusive retail versions of ‘My World 2.0′ next month. There are less than four weeks until Justin’s big release date on March 23. Are you ready?

With about a month until the release of My World 2.0, (due March 23), Justin Bieber took to his Twitter to announce the second single off the album. He plans to follow-up “Baby” with the track “Never Let You Go.” The pop singer, who will celebrate his Sweet 16 on Monday, will release the new song on Tuesday.
“It’s only 5 days until my bday, but now it’s only six days until I release a new song off of My World 2.0 on ITUNES!! Wanna know which song??” he tweeted on Wednesday night. “Next Tuesday after my bday (help ‘Baby’ get to #1 for my bday!! Lol) I will release ‘Never Let You Go’ finally on iTunes from My World 2.0!!!”
Bieber also posted a link to a video of him performing the love song, on which he sings, “It’s like an angel came by, and took me to heaven/ It’s like you took me to heaven girl/ ‘Cause when I stare in your eyes/ It couldn’t be better/ I don’t want you to go.”
“Everyone spread the word,” he told his extremely loyal Twitter followers.
Bieber, who will promote his album by performing on “Saturday Night Live” and the Kids’ Choice Awards, recently released his music video for “Baby.” The video has cameos from Drake and Ludacris and even shows off some of Bieber’s smooth Michael Jackson-inspired dance moves.
“It starts off, I really like this girl, but we didn’t [get] along; we couldn’t be together,” Bieber explained. “Basically, I want her back and [I'm] kind of going through the whole thing. I’m chasing her around, trying to get her, and she’s kind of playing hard to get, but I’m persistent. I keep going.”
Justin Bieber confessed that he is not into star Hannah Montana. He was in New York yesterday and while chatting with Z100 radio station, he confessed that he doesn’t have a thing for Miley Cyrus: “Noooooo! Not my type. But she’s cool. She’s nice. I look for just a nice laid-back funny girl who can make me laugh. Or just funny, down to earth and has a good smile.”
Does that mean Miley Cyrus doesn’t have a good smile? go figure!
Now compare to what Justin Bieber says about Selena. He says: “I think Selena Gomez is pretty…I think she is cute. I think she is a cutie.”

Some of you may not know whos Jasmine Villegas. Well.. she is the girl in Justin Bieber video “BABY”. Did Jasmine win the ticket to be in the “BABY” video? NO, Jasmine is a model/singer, and she was chosen by Justin management to be in the video.
What about people who won the ticket to appear in Justin Bieber video? well.. the person who won the ticket had a chance to meet Justin Bieber and appears in the BABY video.
Do you see bunch of girls in the “Baby” video? yes, some of them are the winners.
Now, who is Jasmine Villegas. How dare Justin Bieber kiss Jasmine Villegas in the picture? lol.. calm down girls… This was what director wants, not Justin (well.. who knows), but they removed or cut the “french kissing” scene because its not too appropriate, as you know Justin Bieber is only 15 when the video was being made.
