Tuned In: Justin Bieber Employs Boyz II Men for Holiday Help

Justin Bieber is going to OWN Christmas 2011.

Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men love each other. 
Lady Gaga has been accused of homewrecking. 
Amy Winehouse was engaged when she passed away. 
Lil Wayne accuses Tea Partiers of racism. 
There's a lot going on this week. 
And yet somehow, Beyonce's pregnancy continues to make headlines. 

  •  Justin Bieber has plenty of talent helping him spread holiday cheer on his forthcoming Christmas album, as he's already recorded songs with Taylor Swift, Sean Kingston and even '90s R&B staples Boyz II Men. Yep. Bieber tweeted Tuesday, "2day i woke up and realized that the group that made me want to sing @BoyzIIMen are now on the christmas album singing with me. #DREAMBIG," adding, "i used 2 listen to their music and practice the runs. that is how i learned to sing. now im in the studio with them making music together."

Bieber, inspirational fellow that he is, concluded, "im telling you...never say never..."
Now it's likely that the Boyz are getting what's known as a "Bieber Boost" as girls who weren't yet born when "End of the Road" was the world's biggest slow jam rush to acquaint themselves with decades of perfect harmonization. 

Luckily, the Boyz are making it easy on Beliebers, as they'll soon release the LP Twenty in honor of the group's two decades in the music business. The album will feature 10 new songs in addition to 10 updated versions of their classic hits.

•  Lady Gaga may or may not be dating her "Yoü and I" music video co-star Taylor Kinney, but whatever the status of their relationship, there's drama. This week, two separate tabloids reported that Kinney was dating a woman named Brittany when he filmed the Gaga video, but that he stopped calling her a few weeks after prancing around shirtless in front of the world's kookiest pop performer.

This isn't the first time Lady Gaga's been accused of man-stealing: In 2010, Star magazine reported that her on-and-off ex-boyfriend Matthew Williams dumped his baby mama over the phone to take up with the Mother Monster. Guess that didn't work out.

Amy Winehouse and Reg Traviss
 •  The late Amy Winehouse's fiancé, Reg Traviss, has given his first interview since the singer-songwriter's death in July. Speaking to The Sun, Traviss detailed the moment he learned of her passing, 
explaining that it was very much a shock: "This was very much someone who was completely normal, happy, healthy, talking about the future. When she went, you could essentially say we were in mid-conversation."

He also confirmed that they were planning to be wed, explaining, "We had spoken about getting married. She had spoken to members of my family about it. It is something that was going to happen."

Today would have been Amy's 28th birthday. Reg says, had she survived, they would have been celebrating with her friends on the beaches of the Caribbean: "We would have been on holiday right now."

  •  Surprise! Lil Wayne isn't down with Michele Bachmann. In an interview with Vibe, the rapper alleges that Republicans just don't like black people, hence their distaste for President Obama.
  "You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it. I feel like as a people the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask 'Am I the person they're talking about or am I not?' You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us."

Kanye West said essentially the same thing with a lot more conviction and a lot less forethought, once upon a time.

  • Beyonce took her baby bump to New York Fashion Week and naturally, everyone's heads exploded. She likes clothes! She's still pregnant! She walked around in a dress that looked like like it was part sea creature!

         In other Beyonce baby news, this actually won't be her husband Jay-Z's first child. This week, Star decided to revisit a story that's practically ancient in gossip years, "revealing" that Jay-Z has a 9-year-old son with a Trinidadian model. The story goes that Jay-Z's less-famous baby mama got about a million dollars to keep quiet about the child, and receives regular child support payments from the hip-hop mogul. But it's an old story. There are even pictures of the (really, really adorable) kid online.
