Justin Bieber Reportedly Punched Man Who Grabbed a Woman by the Throat at Coachella Party

According to TMZ, Justin Bieber allegedly punched a man during a Coachella party on Saturday. Sources told the outlet that a man grabbed a woman, who could have possibly been his ex-girlfriend, by the throat and refused to let her go.

Bieber attended the event with a friend. The incident erupted as he was talking to other guests, when the attacker apparently “went ballistic.” Bieber and the friend repeatedly told the guy to let her go; when he refused by screaming, “Go fuck yourself,” Bieber hit him, freeing the woman from his grasp.

Some claim the man who grabbed the woman was on the drugs. He was reportedly seen later chasing down an SUV he believed the singer was inside. He was later arrested by local authorities. 

Of course, the alleged altercation wasn't Saturday's main story. Coachella became #Beychella as Beyoncé recruited Jay Z, Destiny's Child, and Solange to join her on stage.

Migos’ Quavo Takes MVP in the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

The 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend festivities began with the annual All Star Celebrity Game Friday, as Migos member Quavo snagged the MVP award. Quavo finished the game with 19 points and five rebounds, as Team Clippers won 75-66 over Team Lakers.

“I tried to go for a 20-piece, but as long as I had the most points on the floor that’s the way to go,” Quavo told ESPN’s Cassidy Hubarth during his post game interview, which you can view above.

It was a solid performance for the Atlanta native, as Quavo hit five of his eight free throws and dished out three assists. Quavo also sprinkled in a few highlight-worthy plays with a massive block on NBA 2KTV’s Rachel Demita, a layup in traffic over Justin Bieber and a Euro-step finish on boxer Terence Crawford.

With Los Angeles hosting the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend, each celebrity squad was named after the city’s two respective NBA franchises. Brandon “BDot” Armstrong chipped in 16 points, in addition to Olympic sprinter Andre De Grasse's 17 points, to pace Team Clippers. Demita scored 17, and former NBA guard Nate Robinson put up 14 in a losing effort for Team Lakers.

Quavo’s MVP win comes roughly a month after Migos dropped their sophomore effort, Culture II. The trio’s album debuted at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart with just under 200,000 equivalent album units sold, and Culture II has been streamed over a billion times since its release.

Post Malone: ‘I Still Only Have 1 Good Song’

Post Malone is the latest artist to be interviewed by Nardwuar. It took place in Toronto, Canada, where the pair talked about Post’s love for Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and much more.

 

At the 11:55 mark, Post talks about his early days in his career, and specifically performing to crowds with only a few songs to his name. In 2015, Post’s buzz grew off SoundCloud hits such as “White Iverson,” “Too Young,” “Tear$,” and “What’s Up.” But according to him, his one good song (even to this day) is “White Iverson.”

Nardwuar: Have you ever done “White Iverson” twice?

Post Malone: I sure have. I used to get a lot of shit for it. [Laughs] You gotta understand I had like three songs out. I only had one good song. I still only have one good song, but I had to do it first and I had to do it last ‘cause no one knew who the hell I was.

It is funny Post says this about his own body of work. Since “White Iverson,” he’s had multiple platinum-selling singles: “Déjà vu” with Justin Bieber, “Congratulations” with Quavo, and his new single “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage that spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

His debut album, Stoney, is certified double platinum while fans are anticipating the release of Beerbongs & Bentleys slated for sometime next year.

But you’re your own worst critic, so maybe he has a point. You can watch the full interview above.

Post Malone Says Justin Bieber Has Given His ‘Culty’ Church $10 Million

Post Malone’s recent feature in Rolling Stone was very revealing. We learned about his love for the Olive Garden, his extensive—and wildly expensive—loafer collection, and his “super religious” past.

In addition, we learned Malone's feelings about another super-religious person, his “genuine friend” Justin Bieber. The “Rockstar” rapper said that Bieber is “a fucking awesome, great dude,” but is concerned about the pop star’s relationship with the controversial Hillsong Church. 

“It's a total cult,” Malone said. “He's already given them, like, $10 million.” (A “source close to Bieber” denied that figure to RS.

On top of everything else, we found out that Malone is a gun-obsessed conspiracy theorist who might be preparing for the apocalypse. The 22-year-old rapper discussed his arsenal of weapons after writer Jonah Weiner noticed a copy of Guns & Ammo on his counter.

“I love shooting. The feeling is pure…inebriation. It's like hitting a punching bag to let off steam,” he said before showing off his collection of firearms, including an M14, a .44 Desert Eagle hand cannon, an M1911 pistol, and a couple of Glocks. “[…] They're fun, they're practical, and bad shit happens. If you hurt me, I'm gonna hurt you back […] The world is going to shit. They're taking away a lot of our rights. We have a shitty thing going on in the White House—I don't like Trump. But I don't think it's just him. Something's coming.”

His paranoia isn’t too surprising considering his interests in “alternative news” and “conspiracy shit.”

“There's crazy shit that goes on that we can't explain. Chemtrails and shit,” he said. “Like, they have a gun that gives you a heart attack, and they can't tell the difference.”

Malone also discussed his experience as a white rapper and the criticism he’s faced from the hip-hop community. He specifically addressed a 2015 incident in which Charlamagne tha God suggested he wasn't doing enough to help the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I wish I'd said, ‘What are you doing for Black Lives Matter?’ Some sassy shit to shut him up. Like, maybe my music's not the best, but I know I'm not a bad person, so you're just being a hater,” Malone said. “He's not a good person. He hates me because I'm white and I'm different.”
