Justin Bieber Crashes Ariana Grande Concert For Surprise Duet...
Here's a musical tip from Justin Bieber: if you're going to crash someone else's show for a surprise duet, make sure you actually know the lyrics.

It's something the Biebs couldn't quite handle when he showed up during an Ariana Grande concert in Miami this Saturday. Bieber took over for The Weeknd on the song "Love Me Harder," but couldn't remember what to sing and left a couple of very awkward blanks in the song.

"So I feel bad, I forgot the words, Ariana," Bieber apologized after the song was over. "I've been trying to memorize them backstage for like an hour."

At least no one seemed ...

Kendrick Lamar's 'To Pimp A Butterfly' Tops Billboard Charts

Kendrick Lamar Takes 'To Pimp A Butterfly' To Number One

Action Bronson Leads Albums To Check Out: This Week In Music
Kendrick Lamar took some of the luster of this week away when he moved his sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly up a week. It was a smart move at the time as the only other big attraction was Modest Mouse’s first album in eight years, Strangers To Ourselves. Even without Kendrick Lamar heading the bill, on an off-cycle Monday release date, there’s plenty of newbies to sink one’s teeth into, arguably led by the long awaited debut album by Action Bronson. But if AB can’t do it, maybe the task falls into the hands of the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, James Bay, Van Morrison, Kidz Bop Kidz, or St...
