Justin Bieber's 'U Smile' Video Premieres

Justin Bieber fans have plenty to grin about now that the teen superstar's latest video is here. Bieber's "U Smile" clip premiered on Thursday (September 30) and features the Canadian sensation indulging in something he probably doesn't get a lot of these days: privacy.

The clip begins in black-and-white (and later incorporates scenes of color) as the "Somebody to Love" singer is approached by a crew of cheery tween fans who ask to snap a pic with the Biebs. The singer, of course, obliges and invites one of the lucky ladies out for a rendezvous later that evening. The two sneak into an empty theater and have lots of moments of PG intimacy, holding hands, horsing around on the theater's seats, sliding down banisters and making each other giggle. They wrap up the date with a playful back-alley water fight and collapse into each other's arms. Read more on MTV News

Exclusive Interview: Mitchel Musso Talks Pair of Kings, Hannah Montana and More!

 By Sue Schneider  


On The Teen Beat  recently got a chance to visit the set of Disney XD’s new show “Pair of Kings” and sat down with Mitchel Musso to discuss his new show.  You loved Mitchel as Oliver Oken, an eternal optimist and Miley and Lilly’s loyal best friend.

On “Pair of Kings,” Mitchel stars as the responsible fraternal twin Brady, opposite co-star Doc Shaw, “Suite Life On Deck.” Unbeknownst to them they find out that they are successors to the throne of the island Kinkow.  Relocating from Chicago, where their aunt and uncle raised them they find that the island Kinkow customs are way different then the way they were brought up and filled with odd superstitions. Trying not to cause havoc at every turn, they decide to claim their throne as joint Kings.

  In your own words, describe your character.
My characters name is Brady, and he is a fraternal brother with Boomer, which is played by Doc Shaw. And the show is all about us being kings of our own island. So you can only imagine being Brady growing up in Chicago and pretty much having nothing and going to royalty you can only imagine what his character is like. He’s just out of this world and he can’t believe it. He’s on top of the world and that’s pretty much about it.
How is it filming this show vs. Hannah Montana?
Here’s the deal. I love Hannah and I love the cast and I will always have that piece in my heart and it will forever live on through me, but as far as the scenarios and the situations that we were getting ourselves into to. The scenes and what the storylines were they were cool and Miley did concerts and stuff, but we’d also be picking out dresses and things like that, but in this show I’m sword fighting and I’m learning…they have people coming training us how to fight. Mummies…mermaids and fighting pirates. We are in volcanoes. It’s just such a mystical island. It’s so surreal that anything is possible. It’s like these boundaries are limitless. It’s like they can write anything they want on the show. That’s why it’s so cool! It’s so geared toward guys; it’s got all that action. It’s got so much comedy and also Doc Shaw, my co-star is one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet in your own life on set and off set. But other then that it’s very exciting. It brings you in…it’s movie…it’s never just a day go by…day go by…it’s one full thing. The show starts and it doesn’t end until it ends. That’s just how it goes.
More To Come Next Week!...

"It’s crazy and so great. All of my hard work has truly paid off, and I feel so happy. I’ve always wanted to do a line.

Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day Of Play! Too Much Fun For One Afternoon!

by Anne M. Raso

I have to report in to and say that this past Saturday's Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day Of Play was too much fun! Not only did people have the chance to run or walk a 4K "race" sponsored by Nick and Big Brothers Big Sisters Of New York City, but the day started off just right with Keke Palmer singing the national anthem. Of course, there were moon bounces and other fun games lined up--not to mention live Nickelodeon games and performances onstage. A few folks got slimed, Victoria Justice and Miranda Cosgrove performed, and Keke Palmer was a good sport about playing a live game of Brain Surge. As you know, Nick went off the air for three hours on Saturday (Noon to 3PM Eastern Time) in the hopes that kids would move away from the boob tube for a little while and get some activity. What was our personal high point of the afternoon besides getting to interview Keke and Miranda? Seeing Spongebob and other Nick characters running in the 4K race. They must have felt hot in those costumes, as the temp was in the 80s at the time! We'll be publishing the Keke and Miranda interviews soon, so stay tuned right here on!

Taylor Swift Receives Auditorium Honor

Taylor Swift has been honoured by her former high school, after the school board voted to rename its auditorium after her.

Swift donated $75,000 to Henderson High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee last year, enabling the school to install improved sound and lighting in the hall.

On September 21, the Sumner County School Board voted unanimously in favour of naming the upgraded venue after Swift. School board chairman Don Long added that the performer had not requested the name change herself.

Hendersonville High School's principal Joni Worsham told the Hendersonville Star that the tribute was "an honour benefiting [Swift's] generous spirit".

The auditorium's name change will become official after a second meeting next month, according to CMT.

Greyson Chance is Back and Blows Everyone Away!

Greyson Chance is back. The 13-year-old singer, who was the first performer to sign with Ellen DeGeneres’ record label and intends to release an album this fall, sits coolly at the piano and blows everyone away. The rendition of Augustana‘s “Fire” is something which is being tuned in again and again by many music lovers.

On May 26 this year, the YouTube sensation appeared on Ellen DeGeneres Show. It was then that he learned that the talk show presenter has started a new record label, and her first signee was Greyson Chance! Speaking on his rise to distinction and the number of individuals that have observed him online, Greyson  then said "it was crazy thinking about 30 million people and it just made him happy. It really just hasn’t sunken in yet. It had been two weeks and it still hasn’t sunken in yet. It’s awesome."
Impressed by Greyson’s performance, Lady GaGa motivated him to go further. She advised her on Ellen DeGeneres Show on what should be the right strategy for him as a budding artist. One interesting thing she told was to stay away from girls and work hard.
Greyson Chance is  featured in this month's  Teen Dream.

To beat Marion in the war for web dominance, Harriet turns to blogging about the star of her producer father’s big movie, teen heartthrob Skander Hill.
