Dear Justin Bieber: Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean wants to help you

Would you take advice from this man?

Before you answer, consider this — what if he happened to be one of the few people in the world who actually understood what you were going through?

Like Justin Bieber, A.J. McLean knows what it’s like to be raised by a single mother, perfect the art of crooning syrupy pop songs, achieve crazy fame at a young age, attract a loyal and slightly scary fanbase of hopelessly devoted teenage girls, wear increasingly goofy hats, get a whole bunch of tattoos, and eventually suffer from substance abuse issues. (McLean has had three stints in rehab; you know what Bieber’s deal is.) Unlike Justin Bieber, though, A.J. McLean has managed to vanquish his celebrity demons — and now he’s hoping to help the troubled teen star do the same. READ FULL STORY

In this, you are correct; though Cyrus did perform a few tunes at Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammys party, she opted not to show up for the awards ceremony itself. (Getting totally shut out of the nominations can have that effect; see also Gaga, Lady.) The Bangerz singer did, however, spend the night making music — at least in some capacity:

Elton John challenges Russian anti-gay law

Elton John is declaring his support of the Russian people, and he says they still accept him despite that country’s harsh new anti-gay law.

Passed last year, the so-called “gay propaganda” law bans promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” to minors.

John said Wednesday that he visited Russia in December concerned that the new law would affect how he was treated as “an openly gay foreigner.” He says he received a warm welcome.

John calls the legislation “deeply dangerous” to the gay and lesbian community, and “deeply divisive” to Russian society.

He volunteered to introduce Russian President Vladimir Putin to gay Russians to help promote understanding.
