Justin Bieber Shares His One Direction Conspiracy Theory

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber shared his conspiracy theory about why One Direction decided to release their forthcoming album on the same date (November 13th) as his new studio release.

While in New Zealand, Bieber sat down for an interview with "The Edge" radio show. When the hosts asked about the date-gate, Bieber piped up and slapped down One Direction's plan to release their Made in the A.M. alongside his album, apparently titled Purpose.

"It's a friendly competition," Bieber said. "I don't know if they're really going on the road much, but we're talking about them right now, so it gives them some promo, right? So, that's probably why they did it."

He said it was all in good fun, but stood by his claim. "I think it was strategy on their part because my release date was first," he said. Watch Bieber's conspiracy theory here.

Rihanna Opens Up about Chris Brown and Domestic Abuse

(Radio.com) Rihanna opens up about her relationship with Chris Brown and the moment he attacked her in his Lamborghini in 2009, in a new interview with Vanity Fair.

That moment still haunts her not because she wants to remember it, but because she says the world can't let it go. She will forever be associated with domestic abuse, a role she's not entirely comfortable playing.

"Well, I just never understood that," she said, 'like how the victim gets punished over and over. It's in the past, and I don't want to say 'Get over it,' because it's a very serious thing that is still relevant; it's still real. A lot of women, a lot of young girls, are still going through it. A lot of young boys too. It's not a subject to sweep under the rug, so I can't just dismiss it like it wasn't anything, or I don't take it seriously. But, for me, and anyone who's been a victim of domestic abuse, nobody wants to even remember it. Nobody even wants to admit it. So to talk about it and say it once, much less 200 times, is like'I have to be punished for it? It didn't sit well with me."

When the two got back together in 2012, Rihanna admitted, "I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn't understand him. Even after'" trailing off and failing to finish that ominous thought. 'I don't hate him," she said. "I will care about him until the day I die. We're not friends, but it's not like we're enemies. We don't have much of a relationship now," she clarified.

She realized towards the end of their relationship how she thought she was strong enough to handle what Brown offered her, but eventually she knew she wasn't up to the task. " Read more here.

Paul McCartney Reveals Alternate Video for Michael Jackson Duet

(Radio.com) Paul McCartney has released an updated video of his 1983 hit duet with Michael Jackson "Say, Say, Say". Launched exclusively through McCartney's Facebook page, the new video accompanies a previously unreleased version of the chart-topping song. In the remixed version, Michael and Paul switch parts in the song.

According to McCartney, the song came about when Michael Jackson called him out of the blue and said he'd like to write with him. Jackson went to England and the pair sat down and started writing. Paul figured if the songs weren't good, they would just be thrown away.

The black-and-white visual follows a young man walking through town, dancing to the song. He meets up with other dancers and they all show off their skills. The clip was directed by Ryan Heffington, who also served as choreographer.

Paul McCartney decided to drop this video for the remixed version of "Say, Say, Say" because his classic 1983 album Pipes of Peace was recently reissued as a 2-disc special edition. The reissue boasts the remastered original album and a nine-song disc that contains demos, outtakes and other bonuses fans will appreciate. Read more and check out the updated video below.

Singled Out: Short Stack's Gravity

Shaun Diviney, the leader of the Australian group Short Stack, tells us the story behind their song "Gravity," which comes from their brand new third studio album "Homecoming". Here is the story:

I live on the beach and write a lot of songs in my head while surfing. The idea to this came to me while out in the ocean one day, of finger picking almost single notes as if to make it sound like you were in a barrel or under water, and then juxtapose it with a really harsh chorus, with pounding drums. I like that juxtaposition, it's just like the ocean. Fluidity meets chaos.

When we were in London recording the album we just started jamming and the song came to life in a really organic way. We recorded with producer, Chris Kimsey, who has worked on Rolling Stones & INXS, and we all really vibed on this tune, staying up until 3am a few nights in a row getting the tones perfect and the mood right.

Lyric-wise the song deals with how I feel people's worlds always need a centre, a kind of constant. I feel our lives are pretty crazy, it's easy to get carried away with it all, but it's important to always have that feeling of "home" whether, it's a place or a person.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
