Posing with Justin Bieber was only the beginning for Austin Mahone.

The 18-year old, who recorded some music with Bieber this week and posted a photo of the pair on Instagram, announced two pieces of exciting news this morning:

  1. His debut album will be released on May 27.
  2. He's going on tour!

The Wu-Tang Clan's unprecedented plan to produce just a single copy of its new double album in order to increase its value is off to a flying start.

According to RZA, the group has already received seven-figure offers for the one-off 31-track record, called The Wu - Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.

"Offers came in at $2 million, somebody offered $5 million yesterday," RZA said.

"I've been getting a lot of emails: some from people I know, some from people I don't know, and they're also emailing other members of my organization."

"So far, $5 million is the biggest," the rapper (real name Robert Diggs) added.

"I don't know how to measure it, but it gives us an idea that what we're doing is being understood by some. It's been real positive," RZA added.

"And there are some good peers of mine also, who are very high-ranking in the film business and the music business, sending me a lot of good will."

A couple years ago, we asked: is Austin Mahone the next Justin Bieber?

Most likely not, it appears, but that isn't stopping the young artist from teaming up with Justin Bieber. 

Both handsome singers posted the same photo of themselves in a recording studio today, as they’re locked in an embrace with Cash Money co-founder Birdman and Young Money performer Mack Maine.

"New music #YMCMB,” wrote Bieber as a caption, while Mahone added: “What an amazing song last night..The world isn’t ready! @justinbieber."

An insider has confirmed that Mahone and Bieber (who is about to strike a plea deal in his DUI case) are collaborating on at least one new track, with a source telling Gossip Cop:

Farrah Abraham's music career is "Blowin'" up ... and thanks to the fact that she allegedly stiffed the guy who helped bolster it, the blowback has begun.

Writer/producer Adam Barta claims he had a deal to share credit and profits from the Farrah Abraham "Blowin'" video ... only she screwed him over hard.

Not like she did James Deen, either. Figuratively.

Farrah released the song by herself out of nowhere, he claims - and the record bears him out in that regard - and is hoarding the profits from "Blowin'".

We know ... there are profits from that thing?!

Adam, who also collaborated with Nadya Suleman (on her music video for "Sexy Party," not the Octomom porn), does not appreciate being lied to.

Apparently he's never met Farrah Abraham.

Drake released a new song Tuesday called "Draft Day." The track, which samples Lauryn Hill, is not affiliated, we don't think, with the movie of the same name.

It does, however, contain some lyrical gems, with the star name-checking Chicago MC Chance the Rapper, Johnny Manziel and ... Jennifer Lawrence.

There are also plenty of insults and barbs to go around.

"Draft Day" opens with a nod to the controversial college football phenomenon Manziel before Rihanna's rumored boyfriend addresses his detractors:

"And if I left this s--t to chance, I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper. No offense 'cause I don't know that n---a. I just focus on making records and getting bigger."

Elsewhere, Drake appears to diss Jay-Z and Kanye West, with whom he has feuded before, with the line, "Just hits, no Mrs. / That's for the married folk."

But arguably the best and most unexpected reference came with a tribute (see what we did there?!) of sorts to a well-known celebrity in a different field.

It's the Circle of Life. And it moves us all.

And it helped make a flight departing from Brisbane an especially entertaining and unforgettable experience for hundreds of passengers this week.

That's because the cast of The Lion King was on board and they decided to break into a perfect rendition of this classic Disney song. Who needs Rafiki when you've got this kind of harmony?!?

Watch the impressive version now and just try not to sing along with it. We dare you!

Australia's loss is the rest of the music world's gain.

Kanye West has postponed a number of tour dates Down Under because he’s anxious to head back to the studio and work on his new album.

Close Up of Kanye

"Due to unexpected timing requirements to finish his highly anticipated new studio album, scheduled for a 2014 release, Kanye West regretfully announces the postponement of his upcoming tour dates in Australia," read a statement posted to Roc Nation's website, adding:

Frankie Knuckles DJ and house music pioneer, died Monday. He was 59.

The "godfather," a Chicago resident, "died unexpectedly" at home, his longtime business partner Frederick Dunson confirmed to the Chicago Tribune.

F. Knuckles

Bronx-born Frankie Warren Knuckles Jr. (yup, his real name) honed his DJ skills in NYC, moving to Chicago in the late '70s as the disco scene was dying.

Along with a group of house music innovators, the young Knuckles went on to become a cult hero overseas in Europe's rave-oriented club scene.

Also a producer, Knuckles went on to work with some of music's biggest stars, including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, and Diana Ross.

Morales, along with Knuckles' successors, mourned his passing Monday.
