Justin Bieber Called Venereal Disease Of The Ear By Hanson

(Radio.com) It's been 20 years since Hanson released "MMMBop," the earworm that captivated a generation and redefined the boy band in the brief moment before *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.

The three brothers have continued to tour, make music and give interviews--including one with Australia's Triple J radio in which they call Justin Bieber "chlamydia of the ear."

A host played a snippet of Bieber's hit "Despacito" for the trio and their reviews weren't kind. "I prefer not to get any venereal diseases so whenever Justin Bieber gets near me or near my ears'" said one brother.

Another chimed in: "It's like hanging out with a koala' It's just ear infections, they're terrible. Chlamydia of the ear, it sucks." Listen to their unvarnished reaction here.

Geri Halliwel Streams George Michael Tribute 'Angels in Chains'

(Radio.com) George Michael's sudden death in December dealt a tragic blow to fans and musicians alike. The singer's legacy can be felt from Sam Smith to the Spice Girls. "Ginger Spice" Geri Halliwell counted Michael as a close personal friend and recorded "Angels in Chains" as a tribute to her late mentor and kindred spirit.

Halliwell told Billboard that the "emotional" studio sessions helped her process grief. They featured Michael's producer and members of his backing band. "You know when you've got one of those friends that you don't have to see all the time but when you do, you just click back and you have the most honest relationship?" she said. "I would say that's the kind of relationship. I felt that as a fan, and then I became a friend. I wanted him to be my boyfriend, but I wasn't his cup of tea."

"We had this connection," she remembered. "He'd lost his mother and I lost my father. Looking back, I looked to him for, sort of, objective fatherly advice sometimes. I'd go and take my music to him and say 'What do you think?'" Read more and stream the song here.
