Justin Bieber, Metallica

The members of Metallica are Justin Bieber fans.

The "Sad But True" heavy metal legends are impressed by 19-year-old teen heartthrob Justin Bieber - whose fans are affectionately referred to as Beliebers - after he said their tracks "One" and "Fade to Black" are his "jams." Speaking to Q Magazine, singer James Hetfield said, "Are we Beliebers? Yes."

Drummer Lars Ulrich added, "Is it possible to have respect for him without being a Belieber? I think the kid's really talented and obviously to go through what he's going through at that early age must be a mind***k. So the fact that he still goes out there and does it, I admire that and I think he's super talented, so I guess I am kind of a Belieber. If he likes 'One,' and Liam Gallagher likes him, OK, there you go."

Britney SpearsBritney Spears thinks it's her job to look more like a "sex kitten" than she really is.

The 31-year-old star's video for her new single "Work B***h" shows her flaunting her figure in sexy outfits while she whips her dancers and she claims this is a different role to what she plays at home where she is mother to sons eight-year-old Sean and seven-year-old Jayden - who she has with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

"I think it goes with what I do. It's my job to portray more of a sex kitten than what I really am at home with my kids," she said when quizzed on her sex appeal.

The pop star finds her stage persona therapeutic as it nothing like her real life and her performances give her the opportunity to portray a "different character." She explained, "As artists I think people who are really shy - I'm really shy in person - so when I get on stage, it's really good for me to become this different character because it's like therapy for me."

Metallica

Metallica is set to perform in Antarctica. The "Enter Sandman" rockers will take to the stage on the Earth's southernmost continent - which is mostly covered in ice at least 1.6km thick - at some time between December 2 and December 15 as part of a special Coca-Cola event.

Although the group haven't confirmed their participation in the event - which was announced on the drinks firm's Colombian website - drummer Lars Ulrich has previously hinted at a surprise planned for the end of the year: "There's a very interesting thing coming our way in December ... There's another frontier heading in Metallica's direction in December. Which, if anybody [in our management team] even knew that I just said what I just said, they would hunt me down and silence me. But there is another frontier coming in December, which we're very excited about."

Britney SpearsBritney Spears' team have been briefed to cover up her plans to lip-sync during her Las Vegas concert residency.

The "Toxic" hitmakers' managers have created a "cheat sheet" of answers to be given to curious media and fans about her two-year Britney: Piece of Me shows in the US gambling capital, and the document has now been obtained by the New York Daily News newspaper's Confidenti@l section. According to Confidenti@l, the paper features stock answers like, "Yes! She will be singing live!," "Certainly she will be singing live!," "Yes, all vocals will be live!" and "No lip-syncing will happen at the show."

However, the "special notes" section of the sheet indicates otherwise, and contains a note reading, "All vocals will be pre-recorded." It adds that the "live" band "will be pre-recorded also." The document warns staff at Planet Hollywood to "try and stay in the margins of the provided answers and refrain from elaborating replies."

The pop princess will kick off her residency on December 27 and is reportedly being paid $15 million a year.

Lady GagaLady Gaga will headline the first ever YouTube Music Awards.

The "Bad Romance" hitmaker will join Arcade Fire and Eminem on November 3 at the inaugural event which will honor artists who have shared their work through the popular video-sharing website.

"It's our chance to really celebrate the artists and the songs that have become hits on YouTube over the past year," said YouTube's vice president of marketing Danielle Tiedt.

There will be a number of performances taking place across the globe - including Seoul, Moscow, London and Brazil - before a live 90-minute show which will be streamed from Pier 36 in Manhattan, New York City.

Director Spike Jonze - who has worked on videos for a host of top artists including Weezer, P. Daddy, the Chemical Brothers, Bjork and R.E.M. - has been cast as creative director for the production and is looking forward to working with the talent. "Instead of bands performing to an audience on a stage, we're going to have a warehouse with all these different sets and try to make live music videos throughout the night. The idea is let's get a bunch of interesting artists together and have a night that's all about making things," he said, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
