Justin Bieber owes his fame and fortune to Usher, who discovered the Canadian singer based on a series of homemade YouTube videos.

Now, the teenage icon is returning the favor, hoping to become a mentor to a young woman named Carly Rae Jepsen.

The Biebs helped sign Jepsen - last year's runner-up on Canadian Idol - to Schoolboy Records, the label run by Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, after hearing the track "Call Me Maybe" on the radio.

"She's gonna blow up," Bieber said last week on his native country's MuchMusic.

And he's doing all he can to help with said blowing up, teaming with Jepsen and a couple other friends - Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale - on the video for "Call Me Maybe." Watch it here:

Justin Bieber has put a ring on it. No, not that kind of ring.

But Selena Gomez took to her Instagram account this week and showed off the piece of jewelry recently gifted to her by her young man: a diamond-encrusted "J" ring, seemingly a welcome back gift, considering Selena had spent awhile touring South America.

"I'm finally home :)," Gomez wrote as the caption for the following photo, causing millions of Beliebers to either melt or plot Selena's doom...

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are still going strong, as the couple were spotted out just last night on a date in Los Angeles.

But the 19-year old singer has called it quits with the other steady presence in her life, telling Facebook followers over the weekend that she and backup band The Scene won't be playing together for a bit.

"My band and I are going our separate ways for a while," Selena wrote. "This year is all about films and acting and I want my band to play music wherever with whoever. We will be back but, it will be a good while. I love them and I love you guys."

Gomez and The Scene released "When the Sun Goes Down" last year, an album that peaked at number-three on the Billboard 200 chart.

But it's true that Selena's film career is taking off: she'll voice a character in Adam Sandler's animated Hotel Transylvania later this year; and then star alongside James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens in Spring Breakers, a movie about a group of college girls who take over a fast-food joint in order to finance their Florida spring break.

Selena Gomez is joining the young vampire craze. And the actress is taking over for pal Miley Cyrus in order to do it.

A rep for Adam Sandler has confirmed to E! News that Gomez will replace Miley in Hotel Transylvania, an animated feature in which Sandler will voice the operator of a high-end resort that caters to vampires, and who freaks out when a boy finds the locale and falls for the Count's teen-aged daughter.

She'll be played by Selena.

  • Off to Lunch

Other characters in Hotel Transylvania will be voiced by Andy Samberg, Cee Lo Green and Kevin James. The film is scheduled for a September release.

No word on why Miley dropped out of the project.

The March issue of Cosmopolitan features an especially revealing side to Selena Gomez, and we aren't just talked about her cleavage-baring photo:

Inside the magazine, Gomez isn't shy about expressing her feelings for Justin Bieber, saying:

“I’m just like every 19-year-old girl. If you’re in love, you’re in love to the fullest, and you just want to go to the movies, hang out, and be as normal as possible. I’m fortunate that I’ve found someone who has that philosophy."

He also has the means to make those movie dates a tad abnormal. One time, Bieber rented out an entire basketball arena for the couple.

Move over, Justin Bieber. You aren't the only charitable individual in your relationship.

Following past trips to Ghana and Chile as an ambassador for UNICEF, Selena Gomez is now planning an even more dangerous trek, telling E! News last Friday night:

"In April, we're going to go somewhere a little harder, the Congo... I was talking to Joel Madden and he works with UNICEF and he went... and he said it was the most intense thing he had ever done in his entire life - and the best thing he had ever done."

Gomez has served as a UNICEF ambassador for approximately two years, raising over $200,000 for the cause last week during an event at The House of Blues.

"We're helping to save the lives of children all over the world," Selena wrote on her Facebook page.

Robert Pattinson is not the only mega star to have recently undergone a hair transformation.

Selena Gomez paid a visit to Nine Zero One salon in Hollywood this week and added some serious color to her locks in preparation for her upcoming tour. We're not exaggerating:

The look is only temporary, however, and it's not even real. The shades of blue and purple are courtesy of Great Lengths hair extensions. Although.. we sort of like it. How about you?

What do you think of Selena's brightened look?

Selena Gomez has received numerous death threats from misguided Justin Bieber fans who apparently don't want their favorite singer to be happy.

Is the artist scared in the moment sometimes, when such nasty messages are sent her way? We'd have to believe so. But asked about her boyfriend's enthusiastic supporters during an interview with Baltimore radio station Z104.3 this week, the 19-year-old came across quite mature and understanding.

"It's a little odd, but I understand it completely," Selena said. "It's amazing to me to see how many passionate fans there are. So obviously, you've just got to think of the fans first, and that's okay."

Gomez and Bieber both rang in 2012 from Times Square, with the former belting out a performance as soon as the clock struck midnight.

Selena admits it's "kind of" annoying that she and her young man can't share the same fans, but added it's "kind of cool we have our own individual [fans]."

It's unofficial, but Selena Gomez may have put on the very first live performance of 2012. At least in the Eastern Time Zone.

Very soon after confetti dropped on top of over one million party-goers in Times Square, this 19-year old sensation took to the stage inside MTV's New York City headquarters and belted out a version of "Love You Like a Love Song." Watch her in action now:

Gomez was far from the only performer to play a fun role on New Year's Eve. She was joined in the same location by her boyfriend, in fact, who is included in the following list of performances from last night:

Happy 2012 to all!
