The stars were both guests at the Vanity Fair Academy Awards afterparty in Hollywood, and cut through any tension by chatting to each other upon their arrival.

Fans will have to wait until the end of the day to purchase the new tune as it'll be sold exclusively on iTunes beginning midnight. The 10-year-old songstress is also expected to plug the club-ready song with a performance on an upcoming episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

"21st-century girl/ I do what I like/ 21st-century girl/ I'm taking you for a ride/ 21st-century girl/ Gonna live it up/ Just live it up," Willow sings in what appears to be the song's hook.

In one photo, Bieber is with Gary LeVox, lead singer of Rascal Flatts, on the set of the video for their duet, "That Should Be Me," from Bieber's Never Say Never - The Remixes.

Biebs explained that he "wanted to change it up" and that he thought the cut was "kind of a mature look." He will turn 17 next month, so perhaps the new 'do is a step in an older direction for the teen star. Read more>>
