Justin Bieber is taking the year off to record some music, spend time with his family and friends, and interact with his Beliebers (fans) over social media and meeting them.
Meanwhile, Beliebers may have a tiny case of Post Concert Depression (PCD). Uh-Oh! Although, Bieber's Believe tour took its end in Australia at the end of 2013, they cannot wait until he's back on tour. They are hoping he will do an acoustic tour, however, there has been no official announcement.
Even though, Bieber, released an album late last year, titled, Journals, it makes Beliebers more anxious for the stuff to come. He posted a few previews to a few songs on Instagram.
Hear a snippet of "Life is Worth Living Again", right here on Popdust.
According to Billboard, Bieber plans to release a new album before the end of year.
Have no fear if you have PCD, the Believe movie is now available on iTunes. You can now re-live the Believe tour, every day.
The sequel to Justin Bieber's Never Say Never documentary, is filled with concert and backstage footage. Beliebers can also get an up close and personal look into Bieber's life.
It may not fully cure your PCD, however, the movie is everything a fan could ever ask for! If you didn't get to see the movie in theaters, or the tour, this is the perfect opportunity for you to get the DVD. If you've seen the Believe tour, and the movie, get the movie anyway.
For those hard-copy lovers, have no fear! The Believe movie is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on Amazon on April 8.
The ice cream company released a powerful statement this week.
With Black Lives Matter protests popping up left and right, lots of well-known public figures and companies are taking a stand against police brutality.
Celebrities are putting their lives on the line protesting, childrens' toy companies are donating tens of thousands to organizations like the NAACP, and even infamous YouTube stars are hitting the streets. But Ben & Jerry's—yes, the ice cream brand—have made the most detailed statement of all.
"The murder of George Floyd was the result of inhumane police brutality that is perpetuated by a culture of white supremacy," reads a lengthy statement on the Ben & Jerry's website. "What happened to George Floyd was not the result of a bad apple; it was the predictable consequence of a racist and prejudiced system and culture that has treated Black bodies as the enemy from the beginning."
The statement continues: "Four years ago, we publicly stated our support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Today, we want to be even more clear about the urgent need to take concrete steps to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms."
Ben and Jerry then outlines a four-step plan to end white supremacy. First is calling on President Trump to disavow white supremacy, instead of calling on the military to shoot American protesters. Second is calling on Congress to pass H.R. 40, a bill with instructions to study racism, its deep roots in American history, and how antiquated beliefs are still prevalent today. Third is creating a task force to help increase police accountability, and fourth is a "call on the Department of Justice to reinvigorate its Civil Rights Division as a staunch defender of the rights of Black and Brown people." Trump has never made plans even half that detailed!
It's a little sad that ice cream companies are more adamant about ending centuries of white supremacy than our own government officials even at the state level. Especially when other companies have issued statements that attempt to overshadow their previous racist actions, Ben & Jerry's commitment to justice is admirable. Ben and Jerry are officially the two coolest white boomer men we know, and we will be celebrating by vacuum-inhaling three pints of Chunky Monkey.
