First Mark Wahlberg, then Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough, and now Joey Fatone! The former NSYNC member is the latest celeb to give advice to Justin Bieber. "Don't be a douche," Joey said. "You get this bug from the 'celebrity' thing where you're very on top of the world and everybody's 'yes-ing' you to death, so you feel like 'I can get away with this' ... He's a kid. You're going have fun. You're going to lash out. You're gonna make mistakes. Everyone does." [Pop Sugar]
Who: Former Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate frontman Andrew McMahon
What: "Learn to Dance," a track from Andrew's forthcoming solo EP, The Pop Underground
The Roundup: "'Learn to Dance' was the first song recorded for The Pop Underground and in many ways it set the tone for the EP's subject matter, as well as our approach in the studio," Andrew tells AOL Music.
The singer explains that initially the writing process got off to a rough start.
"I had just finished a really inspiring two-day writing session for another artist and went out to celebrate with some friends," he says. "We ended up watching the sun come up despite the fact I was scheduled to meet a young producer in the morning to begin work on some of my own material. I spent the first half of the day hungover, hitting dead ends, working on a song I had written prior."
With a different mindset, Andrew found the inspiration to write the track, which reflects the lessons he's learned from the past.
"Mark, the producer I'd just met, finally said, 'I think we should write something brand new.' He put up a beat, and it brought me out of my fog," Andrew says. "I laid down the simple piano line you hear in the intro and this boozy, regretful lyric. It quickly turned into flashbacks from my childhood and glimpses into the future. In a lot of ways it's about finding forgiveness and learning how to acknowledge the past in a way that lets you live in the present."

Miley Cyrus certainly isn't helping debunk allegations that she's split from fiance Liam Hemsworth. During a Google+ chat with will.i.am, Miley admitted her upcoming record has taken priority over everything -- including her relationships! "All I do is focus on my music," she said. "The only place I ever am is at the studio. I mean it's literally like my friends, my relationships with everyone around me have honestly changed since I've been working on my record because it's the only thing that I've wanted to give 120 percent to. I think it's the only time in my life that I've pushed everything aside, everyone aside, anything that, you know, really mattered and just became about the music." [Perez Hilton]

Forget tigers and koi fish, Justin Bieber's latest tattoo is getting a lot of buzz for looking a lot like ... you guessed it ... Selena Gomez!

The wild and playful pop star is a huge fan of the swarm of Kardashian reality shows, but says her new series is far from what you see on the small screen from Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.
"I have a love for the Kardashians, I'm not going to lie to you," the 26-year-old said in a recent interview. "I love that show, but it's very different. I do not look as pretty as they do - like at all. During my show, there's a lot of moments with no makeup at all, like I'm in a T-shirt running around in my underwear."
