Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi Loses Her License

Adding insult to injury, Nicole ?Snooki? Polizzi has had her license revoked following a run-in with an Italian police car yesterday (May 30).

The pint size reality star was in the driver's seat when her vehicle struck a nearby cop car - sending two police officers to the hospital for minor injuries.

By law, having harmed other motorists, Nicole has lost her right to drive in the country - however, things could be worse, as the injured authorities (who were actually hired to escort Polizzi and her castmates through the city) could take civil action against her.

A Florence police spokesperson revealed, "It was nothing serious and they have been released, but they will not be back at work for a week."

Janet Jackson Thrills Fans With Greatest Hits, Michael Tribute At Radio City

Singer covered songs ranging from classic 'Pleasure Principle' to 2008's 'Feedback' at New York show.

NEW YORK — Often imitated, never duplicated, Janet Jackson's outbursts of meticulous choreography, sassy exclamations and smoldering gazes into the audience kept them on their feet for the entire two-hour set of her greatest hits at Radio City Music Hall. Monday night marked the last of three sold-out shows at the historic venue on her monumental Number Ones: Up Close and Personal Tour.

Up-and-coming boy band Mindless Behavior opened the show with songs including "#1 Girl," "Future" and their debut single, "My Girl." With their Usher-esque dance moves and shouts like "Where the ladies at?" the boys brought the tween girls out of hiding, judging by the shrill screams escaping various corner of the music hall.

At 9:00 sharp, the lights went down and Janet's fans were on the edge of their seats, watching music videos for "The Best Things in Life Are Free" and "Rhythm Nation" projected on big screens across the venue. A small shadow drifted toward center stage, and when the colorful lights came up, Jackson, wrapped in a shoulder-padded catsuit, complete with slick short hair, blasted into "The Pleasure Principle," dancing as hard and intensely choreographed as she did when the song first came out in the 1980s.

With barely a spare second between songs, Janet dazzled her way through her biggest hits, including "Miss You Much," "All for You" and "Nasty," and more recent hits like 2008's "Feedback."

Videos displayed during Jackson's costume changes included vintage clips from "Diff'rent Strokes," a funny scene from "Poetic Justice" where Jackson slyly rejects the advances of Tupac Shakur's character, and a rather heavy scene, as Jackson's character in "Why Did I Get Married" destroys her husband's house with a golf club, screaming hysterically.

Considering the tough couple of years the Jackson family has faced, the dark moments in the video seemed fitting, and everyone was beside themselves with bittersweet joy when Michael Jackson's face popped up on the big screen and she performed their hit single "Scream."

Janet emerged for her encore in a tight white one-piece disco suit, and performed "Diamonds," "Make Me" and "Together Again," which appeared to be the biggest hit of the evening. As Jackson graciously bowed out, her straight face transitioned into a smirk, suggesting that despite the hard times she has experienced recently, we can expect to see this singing and dancing pop legend shine far into the future.

"Its amazing!" Janet fan Elena Mercantini gleamed afterward. "It's like she's still 20 years old!"

"She's hot, she's amazing and she's still got it after all these years" added Alison Klinger of Long Island. "Best concert I've ever been to!"

Nicki Minaj's 'Did It On 'Em' Video Reveals Backstage High Jinks

Video director DJ Scoob Doo tells MTV News he wanted fans to see another side of Pink Friday star in brand-new clip.
By D.L. Chandler

Nicki Minaj's blistering track "Did It On 'Em" gets the video treatment in a guerilla-style clip highlighting some of the diva's backstage exploits and performances during the I Am Still Music Tour alongside Young Money honcho Lil Wayne earlier this year. MTV News caught up with the director of the brand-new clip, DJ Scoob Doo.

A hip-hop renaissance man, Scoob Doo has brushed elbows with some of rap's elite for some time now as a longtime fixture on the mixtape scene, gaining a name on the DVD scene, as well. Scoob's latest gives Minaj fans an intimate look into the superstar's life on the road. Scoob revealed quite a bit during a quick phone chat and gave the lowdown on how the video came to fruition.

"She's family to me and I'm family to her, but this is the first time us working together was a priority on both of our lists. So we just had to dig in and put everything to the side and really work on something ... [and] we had no idea that it would turn out as good as it did. It was a great experience," the video director told us.

Scoob also revealed that the plan all along was to shoot the clip in the rugged style seen in the clip. "It took me about a good two weeks to put all of the ideas that we had together. The good thing about the video is that we went in knowing we were gonna shoot the video onstage a few times. I was actually able to get my camera crew onstage," Scoob shared.

Although the style of video isn't like many of the other starlet's big-budget affairs, Scoob Doo shared why Nicki Minaj agreed to go with the more underground feel this time around: "Did It On 'Em" was the #1 song in the country without a video and only dropped a few spots when Nicki's glossy "Super Bass" video was released. After a brief convo and an agreement between Scoob and Nicki, they pieced together the video in two weeks in an effort to bump up interest and chart position for the still popular but dwindling "Did It On 'Em" single.

DJ Scoob Doo is already working on other projects and says he's "stepping it up" as a director. His goal is to bring quality music videos back to the forefront.

Still riding high off the success of her debut album, Pink Friday, Nicki is set to join pop diva Britney Spears on tour this summer.

Toni Collette Goes ?Mental?!

Although Toni Collette?s run in ‘The Unites States of Tara’ was cut short due to ratings, the actress is still reeling in the movie roles these days! Get the details on Collette?s new movie role in Mental below the fold. Actress Toni Collette is set to reunite with Confessions of a Shopaholic director PJ Hogan once again. Back in 1994 the pair worked together on Muriel?s Wedding. This time around they?re both on board the future film Mental. Per Variety, the comedy centers on Barry Moochmore, a local political figure who must commit his wife to a mental ward and care for his five teenage daughters. Down and out, the character decides to hire a hitchhiker he picked up on the side of the road, played by Collete. A little strange? Yes, but the production company backing the flick has reported Mental to be a ?delicious prospect? with an “unbelievably” talented script penned by Hogan. The film is scheduled top open sometime in 2012. In other news Collette is also on board the reboot of the 1980?s Fright Night with Anton Yelchin and Colin Farrell. The vampire story is due out this summer. Collette plays a mom to Anton?s on [...]

Seth Rogen?s ?50/50? Movie Trailer Is Sadly Funny!

Seth Rogen has released the first look at his movie ’50/50′. Get the details surrounding the actor’s upcoming movie and watch the trailer that features the Knocked up star and Third Rock From The Son alum Joseph Gordon Levitt in the lead role below. Seth Rogen has decided to tackle the hardships of cancer in his latest movie, a flick that is inspired by his true life friend portrayed by Joseph Gordon Levitt. Coined 50/50, Will Reiser’s script chronicles his best friend’s diagnosis and “subsequent struggle to beat the disease.” In the first official trailer released, Rogen introduces his friend that inspired it all before showcasing the 2 minute clip. Sadly funny, the teaser shows Levitt’s diagnosis by the doctor, and the roller coaster stages of denial and numbness that follows with scenes of his one on one meetings with his psychiatrist – Twilight’s Anna Kendrick. Putting a spin on the very worst, Rogen and Levitt buddy around, shave his head with a nasty pair of clippers, and try to pick up girls at clubs using the cancer card of all things! Also on board are actors Bryce Dallas Howard of Hereafter, Anjelica Huston, Jessica Parker Kennedy, and Beatrice King. [...]

Robert Pattinson In 'Cosmopolis': First Look!

RPattz and co-star Sarah Gadon appear to be in the back of a cab in photo from David Cronenberg movie.
By Eric Ditzian

Robert Pattinson spent eight months on the set of "Breaking Dawn" and was immediately pulled from the set to begin his whirlwind press duties for "Water for Elephants" last month. After perhaps just enough time to take a quick nap, RPattz is now back on a new set: "Cosmopolis," director David Cronenberg's adaptation of the slim Don DeLillo novel.

With production under way, Cronenberg's daughter has posted the first look at Pattinson and Sarah Gadon in character. The photo appears to capture the duo in a cab, though the great majority of the action, or lack thereof, in the book takes place in a limousine. Pattinson plays Eric Packer, a young and rich asset manager who, over the course of one day, manages to lose millions of dollars yet remain oddly detached from it all as his limo plods through horrendous New York City traffic. Gadon portrays Elise, a rich and beautiful heiress who is married to Packer but who doesn't seem to care for him very much at all and who certainly won't sleep with him.

"I had read the script about eight months ago and thought, 'Wow, this is something that hasn't been made in a long time,' "Pattinson told MTV News in March. "Which I think, like 'Water for Elephants' as well, I'm just trying to find that kind of stuff, because what else is the point? There's so much generic, everything's the same. So you might as well attempt to try something different."

When we caught up with him again in April, Rob revealed that he'd been working with a dialect coach to achieve a "very specific accent." But he still hadn't spoken with Gadon about the upcoming project. "I've seen a couple of things she's done," he said. "She's really good."

Justin Timberlake's Movie Date Night

Looking to be getting back into the dating scene, Justin Timberlake was spotted out with a female friend on Monday night (May 30).

The ?Bad Teacher? actor kept his head down as he and the mystery gal made their way to his car after catching a flick at the local theater.

The outing comes as the car Justin?s clothing line sponsored in the Indy 500 ended up being the winning vehicle over the weekend in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Tweeting his excitement, Timberlake wrote, ?What a Memorial Day weekend! The William Rast car just won the Indy 500!!!!?

Lee DeWyze" Did He Refuse to Present 'Idol' Winner Trophy?

Lee DeWyze" Did He Refuse to Present 'Idol' Winner Trophy?

Dedicated American Idol fans may have been surprised to see season 9 winner Lee DeWyze hanging out in the audience during the season 10 finale -- especially since he didn't perform, was seated way back in the fifth row, and wasn't even acknowledged by Ryan Seacrest on the air. What happened to the tradition of featuring previous Idols on the finale? The answer to that depends on whose Twitter account you believe.

According to executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, Lee DeWyze declined an offer to present the trophy to this year's winner, Scotty McCreery.

"I was so upset Lee DeWyze wouldn't present the winners trophy to Scotty," Lythgoe tweeted on Thursday. "Especially as he'd been on the show this Season. I guess he was shy."

DeWyze, however, tells a different story. A few days before the finale, he wrote that he wouldn't be performing because "I wasn't asked to." Then after Lythgoe's dis on Thursday, DeWyze returned to Twitter to tell his side of the story.

"Hey everyone, first off I want to say congrats to Scotty & Lauren, awesome job," the guitar-playing Idol alum tweeted. "Well done Scotty! Secondly, just for the record... I was not asked to be involved in the Finale. It wasn't until about 2 minutes before they announced that Nigel had approached me and asked if he could 'borrow' me for a second.  I didnt feel a last second jump on stage was appropriate. It was Scotty's moment."

"I appreciate American Idol, and the opportunity it has given me. And the people who have made that show possible," DeWyze continued. "I am not angry, or bitter etc. It was an amazing Finale, and I would have loved to be a part of it. I just wasnt asked. Good luck to all the Contestants and stay true to yourself. Thanks everyone for your support, tour coming up... Good times :) I'll talk to you all soon. Love ya!"

Honest, but gracious. Well said, Lee.

This mini-drama is reminiscent of last year's kerfuffle over Adam Lambert's absence from the season 9 finale. The 2009 runner-up was supposedly cut from the Simon Cowell tribute number due to laryngitis, but he stated on Twitter that he "would have loved" to perform and wasn't asked. Sure, Lambert wasn't a first-place winner, but he's one of Idol's most successful graduates. In the future, we hope that the producers have a little more respect for these talented kids than they showed DeWyze and Lambert.

Robert Pattinson's Toronto Tuesday

Kicking off another workday, Robert Pattinson was spotted on the set of ?Cosmopolis? early this morning (May 31).

The ?Twilight? stud looked intense as he made his away around the Toronto, Canada locale, sporting a brown ball cap, green button-up shirt, and blue trousers.

Coming up this Sunday, Robert and his costar/girlfriend Kristen Stewart will compete for the Best Kiss award at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards.

A favorite in the category, Robert confessed that he?d be a little stressed if he and Stewart went home empty-handed this year.

"It's kind of terrifying if you suddenly stop winning it. You're like, 'Oh God!' It's almost worse than if you stop winning, like, acting awards or whatever. If you can't kiss anymore, it's like, 'What? I'm still good at kissing!'"

Arnold & Maria's Separate Malibu Memorial Day

After calling it quits earlier this month, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver both spent the holiday weekend in Malibu, California - separately.

The estranged couple were both spotted out and about in the posh California town - as Arnold took a midday cruise on his motorcycle while Maria did some shopping with their son Christopher (sans her wedding ring).

Earlier in the day, the 55-year-old mother of four took to her Twitter to show her appreciation for veterans and their families on this commemorative moment, writing, "This weekend, I'm thinking of all who gave their life, and all the families who lost a loved one, in service to this great country. You have our deepest gratitude and respect. God bless."

Shiver added, "My daughter once gave me a great Plato quote that said, 'Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.' I love that. So true. We don't know what is going on inside of most people. On this Memorial Day, when so many are grieving in obscurity or silence, let's keep that in mind."

Them Crooked Vultures make their debut with a post-Lollapalooza set.
By James Montgomery

Officially, Lollapalooza ended Sunday night in Chicago's Grant Park, with dueling sets from the Killers and Jane's Addiction. Unofficially, it ended very early Monday morning, across town at venerable rock club the Metro, with a surprise show by Them Crooked Vultures.

To the unfamiliar, the Vultures might seem like an odd choice to close out Lolla weekend ... until you realize that they're made up of Foo Fighters frontman/ former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age mastermind Josh Homme and Led Zeppelin legend John Paul Jones. And their gig at the Metro was their world premiere.

According to some reports, the Vultures actually turned down Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell's request to replace the Beastie Boys as headliners at the festival, opting to debut in front of some 1,100 super-psyched fans at the Metro, rather than 75,000 in Grant Park (tickets for the gig were announced via Foo Fighter/ QOTSA fan clubs). Meaning that, in a lot of ways, this was the most sought-after ticket in town.

Taking the stage just after midnight, the Vultures — Grohl on drums (of course), Homme on guitar and vocals, Jones on bass and keys and frequent QOTSA contributor Alain Johannes on guitar — ripped through 12 songs in 80 minutes, all taken from their upcoming debut, which may or may not be called Never Deserved the Future, and may or may not be hitting stores on October 23 (early "promo" videos touting both those facts were revealed over the weekend to be hoaxes perpetrated by QOTSA fans).

The songs, with appropriately Homme-ian titles like "Scumbag Blues," "Mind Eraser (No Chaser)," "Caligulove" and "Interlude w/Ludes," sounded pretty much how you'd expect, given the band's pedigree. They rocked, hard — Chicago Tribune critic Greg Kot described them as "fresh, invigorating and just plain nasty" — delving off into psychedelic, reverb-filled excursions and exploring proggy territory, "both of the old-school Yes variety, and the more modern Tool flavor," according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Jim DeRogatis.

It's not known if Monday's Metro performance was a one-off event for the Vultures — there have been whispers of a full-blown tour, but a spokesperson for Homme had not responded to MTV News' request for comment at press time. Nor was it clear whether or not they'll have an album out in October.

Early Monday, a Crooked Vultures Twitter account, which had previously posted links to the band's official-looking Web site and the Metro's online ticketing site — posted a link to what appears to be the group's first bit of official merchandise: a Deserve the Future T-shirt. Cost: $30.

Best Flicks for Kids this Summer

Best Flicks for Kids this Summer

Ah, the unofficial start to summer: picnics and barbecues, soft-serve cones and the bevy of feature films for that summer afternoon or evening escape from the heat. But how do you know what’s right and what’s very wrong for the kids to watch?  I bet most parents have had that moment when they realized a movie was not at all age-appropriate a little too late.

For me, it happened with Annie, which I thought would be fine for my 5- and 3-year-old, but the constantly inebriated Miss Hannigan and the scary chase scene where Annie almost falls to her death pushed me to look at the rating on the DVD case.  When I saw PG-13, I thought, “This is not for my kids.”

In fact, our friends at Fandango recently conducted a poll in which 75 percent of respondents say they assume PG-13 rated movies should be suitable for their young children. At the same time, 78 percent felt that PG-rated films are featuring more adult content than ever before.

So what’s a parent to do? Common Sense Media, experts on what’s age-appropriate, gave us some insight into this season’s slate. Based on their analysis, here are a few of our recommendations:

For Kids 3- to 6-years-old
Winnie the Pooh (in theaters July 15). With a G rating, it’s great for preschoolers and promises to be a sweet one for the younger set anxious to see Pooh and his pals.

For Elementary School-Age Kids
Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer (pictured, above left; in theaters June 10). Rated PG-13, it is perfect for elementary schoolers and above -- especially ones who saw Ramona and Beezus last year and loved it. The kids (and parents) who are already fans of the Judy Moody books will love all the wacky hijinks in this flick.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins (in theaters June 17). Starring Jim Carrey and rated PG-13, this should be a crowd pleaser. We can expect a bit of potty humor and maybe some language of the “hell” or “damn” variety, but overall it seems appealing and harmless with all those cute penguins.

Cars 2 (in theaters June 24). Rated G, this movie promises to be a great film for all ages, from the 7-year-olds to the tweens. And yes, with the animation, it’s one that even Mom and Dad will enjoy.

For Tweens and Teens
Green Lantern (in theaters June 17). Starring Ryan Reynolds, last year’s Sexiest Man Alive in People, it’s likely to be a must-see film for comic fans and for fans of the Hollywood hunk. It is rated PG-13, so expect superhero action and violence, but not overly sexual content.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (in theaters July 1). This movie is really best for teens, but tweens will likely want to see it too, because of the popularity of the toys and TV shows. Parents need to gauge whether their kids are ready for this one. Expect constant action mayhem; plus, hero Sam has a hot new girlfriend, so there may be some sexual situations. 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (pictured, above right; in theaters July 15). This is the last in the Potter series and promises to be action-filled -- and dark, with characters dying and beloved locations destroyed. Plus, Harry is growing up and making adult decisions. While your 7- or 10-year-old may be an enormous Harry Potter fan, it might be too much for them. This might be one to rent at home later on. If your tween insists, you should think about going with your child just in case.

Just days after it was leaked on Friday, Britney Spears and her femme fatales, Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha, dropped their official remix of "Till the World Ends."

The new version of the song was produced by Dr. Luke and Dream Machine. Brit half-whispers " 'Till the World Ends' remix" before the beat kicks in and Nicki hits her verse hard. She spits fierce lines like, "Sniff, sniff, cries/ I done slayed your whole entire f---ing life."

Then Britney's sex-kitten vocals kick in for the song's first verse. "That's Britney, bitch! I'm Nicki Minaj and that's Ke$ha," the Queens MC declares before K sings the chorus. The beat is harder, the loops are sassier and the song is grimier than the original version, which was the second single from Femme Fatale. The newly added dubstep portion takes the one from "Hold It Against Me" to a new level by adding in bass-heavy synths.

Ke$ha, of course, wrote the track for Britney, and the ladies certainly don't seem to mind sharing the spotlight with each other. The official track isn't much different than the version that leaked over the weekend, though Spears did have something brand-new to share with her fans just as the song dropped on iTunes and streamed on her website.

Spears tweeted the artwork for the single, which features the original press photo of Spears along with separate photos of Nicki on the left and Ke$ha on the right. Spears wrote, "@NickiMinaj @Keshasuxx Too much fierceness for one cover! Thanks for lending your voices girls... #TTWEREMIX — Brit"

Spears and Minaj have been hanging out a lot in the lead-up to their summer tour. They hung out at the Factory nightclub on Friday night after Minaj's show in Los Angeles. Spears later wrote, "Early rehearsal after a late night with my girl @NickiMinaj. Can't WAIT to get out on the road with you."

When Ernie Halter put out a call to arms on his Twitter account for fans to come out to his O.C. show, he probably had no idea that one very famous fan would take him up on the offer. On Thursday night, when Halter played at La Cave Restaurant in Costa Mesa, California, he was surprised by Justin Bieber. The Biebs, who brought gal pal Selena Gomez as his date, even took the stage with the singer/songwriter.

"@justinbieber Now get some rest. I still can't believe you flew 11 hrs and drove an hour to surprise me. Wow. So honored. @justinbieber great meeting u & @selenagomez tonight. Def a night to remember. Thank you for the encouragement & for singing with me," Halter wrote on Twitter.

Bieber has covered Halter's track "Come Home to Me" in his own shows, and on Thursday night he sang the tune right alongside the singer, much to Halter's amazement.

"I'm speechless. @justinbieber and @selenagomez came to see me play tonight and Justin sat in. All I can say is wow," he wrote. "@scooterbraun Great meeting you and Karen tonight. What an awesome surprise! Rest up and hope to cross paths again soon. Cheers! @selenagomez you and Justin are so sweet. Pleasure meeting you both. I saw you singing along to my songs. Made my night that much better."

Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, also used Twitter to gush about the night. "I love surprises. We drove an hour out of LA to surprise @erniehalter at his gig. #awesome," he wrote.

Bieber also sent his love and support to Halter on the site. "@erniehalter thanks for the night. Glad we could surprise u. U r the real deal. Congrats to u and the wife. And ... @erniehalter Never Say Never aint no BS. Haha. Thanks again," he wrote. "Music is universal. #artistssupportartists #SWAG"

Britney Spears May Undergo Psychiatric Evaluation In Defamation Case

Ex-manager Sam Lutfi wants to prove singer is competent to testify in his lawsuit against her mother.

Britney Spears and Sam Lutfi may cross paths again. The singer and her former manager could meet in court, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lutfi wants Spears to give a deposition in a case he's pursuing against her mother. In her book "Through the Storm," Lynne Spears alleges that Lutfi was a "gatekeeper" and manipulated the superstar, cutting her off from people and drugging her. Lutfi was fired back in 2008.

He says those claims aren't true and is suing Lynne Spears for defamation. He has requested that Britney testify as part of his lawsuit. However, her parents are opposed to the idea of having her appear for a deposition, saying that she is mentally incapable. Lutfi has fired back through the courts, and in a motion filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, he requested that Spears undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Spears is currently under the conservatorship of her father, James Parnell Spears, and lawyer, Andrew Wallet. Lutfi claims that her ability to conduct interviews and tour as of late proves that she is capable of testifying, and he has even produced his own expert to weigh in on the matter.

Regardless of the outcome, Spears does have a busy summer ahead of her. She's set to begin work on her next music video later this month for the single "I Wanna Go." And she will hit the road with Nicki Minaj in June for her Femme Fatale tour. Other special guests will include Nervo, Jessie and the Toy Boys and, for some select shows, "(Drop Dead) Beautiful" collaborator Sabi.

Tampa Bay Rays Overreact to Avril Lavigne?s Potty Mouth

At a concert after the Rays game Saturday night, Avril Lavigne reportedly let loose a few F-bombs on stage. Now the media and the team are making a big deal about it. This one hits close to home for me, literally. I live in the Tampa Bay area and go to a lot of Rays games. For a while now, the team has offered free concerts at the end of weekend games. All you have to do is stay after the game and wait for them to set up. It?s makes the ticket value so much better, which is already pretty good. Anyway, Avril Lavigne was set to be the performer for a game this Saturday night. She threw out the first pitch at the game, then showed up on stage after wards. People are saying the microphone didn?t work at first, so fans started to boo. That sounds totally believable for our fans, but that is where the stories start to get mixed up. TMZ ran a story saying that she started to cuss at the fans in response. Other stories say that she was just cussing in frustration and not directing it at anybody. After the show, the [...]

Justin Bieber's Grammy Performance Will Be 'A Crossover,' Usher Says

The 'O.M.G.' singer looks forward to sharing the stage with his protégé on Sunday night.
By James Montgomery

HOLLYWOOD — At Sunday's 53rd Grammy Awards, Usher will be pulling double duty as both a nominee and a performer. Of course, given the massive year he just completed — with the success of his smash single "O.M.G." and as a mentor to rising phenom Justin Bieber — Ush's Grammy plans seem rather fitting.

Especially since he'll be performing with Bieber (and Bieber's pal Jaden Smith), a move that's just as much about celebrating Usher's successes as it is the successes of his young protégé.

"Having been through [the Grammys] so many times, you couldn't want for anything more than for your young protégé to have the opportunity to have one, so, in support of him having his moment, I wanted to be here," Usher told MTV News on Thursday, hours before his performance at the (Belvedere) RED launch party in Hollywood. "And also to be there to perform, to kind of tell the story of how we came together. This music business has definitely been good to both of us, and this year we have a lot to be happy for."

And just how will the dynamic duo tell that story? Well, Usher wasn't about to reveal all the details, but he did say that he's hoping their performance will show another side of Bieber ... a side most tend to overlook.

"The performance will be fun," Usher explained. "We want to get up there and just do what we do. Be comfortable, and have a great time. ... This is kind of a crossover for Justin. Having performed on so many different stages, this is the way that I wanted him to be seen and an opportunity to show the industry — a lot of the industry, that didn't believe [in him] — some of his other talents. He's going to play acoustically, and also, we'll get down a little bit."

And though Ush is up for a pair of Grammy awards on Sunday — Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best Contemporary R&B Album for Raymond v. Raymond — he's most looking forward to sharing the stage with Bieber and giving fans a look at where the young artist will be heading next.

"I'm very proud, man. I definitely saw it from the beginning, but thanks to the team that we have around us, it was made to happen. And that story has only just begun," Usher said. "The story of Justin Bieber doesn't stop with screaming girls; we need screaming fans all around the world ... a cultural experience that's much more than just fanfare. And that's what this is. That's what the Grammys will be; that's what my next phase for Justin is. This is the way I found him: I found him with a guitar in his hand, so I want him to be seen that way."

Don't miss "Snooki & Sway: Live From the Grammys," a red-carpet live stream kicking off Sunday at 6 p.m. ET on MTV.com. And stick with us all Grammy night for coverage of the red carpet, the show, the afterparties and beyond!

Taylor Lautner Says Wrapping 'Twilight' Was 'Very Weird'

'It's strange to know I'm not going to be Jacob Black anymore,' actor says on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'

Taylor Lautner will be abducting fans to the theater this fall when his action-packed flick "Abduction" hits the big screen. Lautner promoted the upcoming flick when he stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday night, also telling the host that he's feeling emotional now that he's wrapped up "Breaking Dawn," the final installment in the "Twilight" series.

"All done. It's very weird. Yeah, we've literally been filming these movies for the past three or four years. It's strange to know I'm not going back; I'm not going to be Jacob Black anymore. ... But on the other hand, we're going to be promoting these movies for the next two years," he said on the show. "I was pretty upset myself, but I think the biggest surprise was Kristen [Stewart]. She's very sweet, yes. I predicted it from the beginning. On the last day, it did get emotional. ... We are all great friends."

Looking ahead to his next venture, "Abduction," which co-stars Lily Collins, Lautner premiered a new clip. In it, the actor is seen getting into fisticuffs with a man on a train. And those paying close enough attention do get a quick peek at his abs.

"It was just a coincidence [that I used to study martial arts and now I do action flicks]," he said. "When I was young, I did every sport possible, and martial arts was one of them. This movie was the first time I got to use it."

So what about all those "Stretch Armstrong" rumors? He explained, "We'll see. There's a lot of stuff in the works."
