Justin Bieber Fans Get Loud As Pop Star Wraps Up Massive ‘My World’ Tour

Posted by James Montgomery On October - 17 - 2011

SANTIAGO, Chile — The screams started early, like around 1 PM, a full eight hours before Justin Bieber took the stage at the Estadio Nacional on Saturday night. Actually, they started well before that, like on Friday morning, when the first throngs of True Beliebers began setting up camp on the street outside, passing the hours chanting, singing (“Baby” was a particular favorite), and, of course, screaming. Always screaming.

If you’ve ever attended a Bieber concert, you know what I’m talking about. His fans, young and overwhelmingly female, seem incapable of containing their excitement, and as such emit a particular high-pitched squeal, one that is near constant (though it tends to flare up every so often, like whenever a car with tinted windows drives by, or when Justin bobs his shoulders just so). But on Saturday night in Chile, things seemed to have been taken to another level — by my estimation and according to several folks in his inner circle — because not only were the screams incredibly loud, and constant, but there was a general level of insanity that bordered on, well, insane.

Make no mistake about it, Chile was ready for some Justin Bieber. His face was shown on national news every hour on the hour, his fans shut down the W Hotel (thanks to a report that he was staying there on Friday night, despite the fact he didn’t arrive in the country until Saturday), and 55,000 packed inside the Estadio to catch his show … with several thousand more listening from the streets. Vendors hawked JB headbands and glossy photos, homemade hats and bootleg T-shirts. There were phalanxes of police, angry-looking German Shepherds, trucks festooned with riot-gear finery, and so many security guards milling about that you might’ve thought Barack Obama was in town. It was a very big thing.

The show itself was almost secondary. After all, Bieber’s been performing the same set for nearly two years now (and, as he told me during our interview, he can’t wait to put this particular setlist to bed permanently,) so, again, if you’ve managed to see him live at any venue anywhere recently, you saw the same performance I did. It all started with a hype-man DJ, who played records while a giant countdown clock ticked away the minutes until he took the stage. When that clock hit zero, JB emerged with his army of dancers, did a few well-rehearsed moves while crooning “Love Me” and “Bigger.” He really didn’t have to sing, of course, since the audience shouted every single word right back at him.

He danced his way through “Bigger,” vamped for the crowd during “You Smile,” and slowed things down for an acoustic set, removing his sunglasses and cracking a cocky grin much to the delight of his fans (the scream level at this point reached jet-engine levels of loudness). He serenaded each and every girl in the crowd during “Somebody To Love” and “One Less Lonely Girl,” paused mid-strut to make a heart gesture with his hands (again, jet-engine loud), and worked a little Michael Jackson into the proceedings. Girls wept, held handmade signs aloft, blew him kisses and squealed with delight. It was, for one night at least, like all of their pre-teen dreams were coming true … Justin Bieber in their country, singing to them, taking his jacket off and winking.

And on some level, that enthusiasm had to be due to the fact that, after nearly two years of working it, Bieber was set to put his My World tour to bed at the end of the week (though, always on message, he was already planning ahead to his next jaunt, asking the Santiago crowd “Who’s gonna come next time?” … you can probably guess how they responded). There was a feeling, both backstage and in the house, that this was the closing of one rather huge chapter of JB’s career, and everyone was privileged to be a part of it.

His encore featured a couple new wrinkles, first his remix of Drake’s “Trust Issues” and then, of course, his brand-new holiday single “Mistletoe.” (MTV is premiering the video Tuesday, which is the reason we were down here.), and though those moments were recent additions to the set, they were greeted with the same squeals as every other number. Like I said, Chile was ready for some Justin Bieber.

And then, he closed things out with — what else? — “Baby,” thanked the crowd and departed into a waiting car, which presumably whisked him away to the airport, and on to the next stop of his South American tour. His Chilean fans didn’t leave quite as quickly, milling about in the parks surrounding the Estadio singing and chanting and hugging one another, and, you guessed it, screaming with delight. Like I said, the show was almost secondary … merely the apex of a very hectic 48 hours. Justin Bieber may have blown into (and out of) the country with the quickness of a summer storm, but in the time he was here, he managed to fulfill teenage dreams and create memories that will last for years to come. He forced the police to put on the riot gear, brought the city to a near standstill and single-handedly created several niche markets, at least for headbands and screen-printed, glittery T-shirts. And in those ways, I suppose his Santiago show wasn’t much different from the hundreds of other shows he’s played over the past 24 months … in every other way, boy was it different. Or at least crazier. And louder.

TeenNick Vs. ‘TRL’ And ‘Making The Video’: Interns Weigh In

Posted by MTV News On July - 28 - 2011

By Matt Goodhue

Sure, ’90′s Nickelodeon played a key role in shaping our childhood. Doug and Patty provided us with fashion sense. Kenan and Kel made us fond of orange soda. “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” encouraged us to use a nightlight. These shows were crucial in the development of our young, innocent brains, but it was the radical movement of MTV that really had an impact on how we are today.

As young interns for MTV News, we can’t ignore the influence certain programs had on us. It’s one of the reasons we wanted to come here in the first place. So, while Nickelodeon’s re-airings of hits like “Doug” and “Clarissa Explains It All” are thrilling our slightly older MTV News colleges, we’re hoping MTV will be inspired and re-play our favorite classics from the late ’90s and early 2000s.

“Celebrity Deathmatch,” 1998-2002 – Matt Goodhue
In a time when WWF ruled my Monday nights, I needed another program to meet my wrestling needs during the week. “Celebrity Deathmatch” was the missing link. Not only could I watch claymation characters kick each other’s asses in brutal ways, the matches featured celebrities and historical figures that I would have loved to see square off in the ring. Beavis vs. Butt-head. The Backstreet Boys vs. The Beastie Boys. Busta Rhymes vs. William Shakespeare. Pure genius. With commentators Johnny Gomez and Nick Diamond giving the play-by-play, “Celebrity Deathmatch” provided endless entertainment and a copious amount of blood and physical injury. Bring back the clay!

“TRL,” 1998-2008 – Stefan Doyno
Who doesn’t miss “Total Request Live”? I remember 1998 like it was yesterday. I’m talking about the Carson Daly days, 4PM, Monday through Friday. I was in fourth grade, and every day after school I would turn on MTV to watch my favorite countdown show with a large glass of chocolate milk. “TRL” was great because it featured music videos, but it also kept me up to date with the latest in pop culture. Whether they were premiering a highly anticipated Britney Spears video or something from Eminem, “TRL” always had great guests and great performances. “Total Request Live” was not just a show; it was part of my childhood.

“Making the Video,” 1999-2009 – Danielle Genet
There’s nothing I love more than behind the scenes footage! I loved MTV’s “Making the Video,” which began in 1999, because we were given an exclusive and real look at the process of making a music video – everything from day one set arrivals, meeting the production team, watching the choreography and ideas unfold, and eventually watching the premiere of the video on television. The show taught its viewers so much about the whole production process … I didn’t even know what a green screen was until I watched the show! With technology these days going at a speed of a mile a minute, I would love for this show to come back, slow down the process and help us understand the current efforts behind the videos of the future. Wouldn’t it be so cool to know how Lady Gaga and her team work their magic in their video extravaganzas? MTV News now does a segment called “Frame by Frame” (watch Katy Perry talk about “California Girls”) which is filling the void that was created when this show went off air in 2009.

“Say What? Karaoke,” 1998-2003 – Morgan Schwartz
Although it stopped airing in 2003, “Say What? Karaoke” lives on forever both in my fifth grade yearbook (as my favorite TV show) and in my heart. There was no greater pleasure for me than coming home after a long, hard day on the playground, turning on “Say What? Karaoke,” and singing along as sometimes tone-deaf college-aged kids performed their own renditions of the hottest pop songs of our time. Some (me) may even go so far as to claim it was the original “American Idol.” Let’s just say Randy, Simon and Paula could have learned a thing or two from celeb judges like Shia LaBeouf. And let’s not even start with the resemblance between host Dave Holmes and Ryan Seacrest. It’s uncanny.

What’s your favorite MTV show? Let us know in the comments.

U2 Star In A New Doc, But Here Are The All-Access Passes We Really Want

Posted by MTV News On July - 27 - 2011

U2

By Matt Goodhue

U2 has sold millions of records, packed enormous stadiums and won an array of awards for their musical achievements. Now, the legendary Irish rock band can check one more accomplishment off their to-do list: open a film festival with their incredible story.

Davis Guggenheim, director of the U2 documentary “From the Sky Down,” will premiere his film as the opener for the Toronto Film Festival in September. “U2 has defied the gravitational pull towards destruction,” Guggenheim says, “this band has endured and thrived.” The film, chronicling the rocker’s talent and dedication to music, asks the question why.

While festival-goers will catch the band behind the scenes and off stage, we’ve begun to think of other bands and artists we’d be interested in seeing when the spotlight is off. Some come to mind because of their genius work and success, others because of the crazy lifestyle that we all want to see.

Kanye West
From spitting through the wire to his VMA antics with Taylor Swift, Kanye West is one artist who certainly lives an eccentric life. The Chicago rapper is constantly cranking out hits and sporting some swagged-out fashion, and I’m totally intrigued to see where his inspiration comes from. I wouldn’t mind seeing him and Jay-Z collaborate and chill in the studio either. They both seem like some real cool dudes.

The Strokes
After not releasing an album for about 5 years, there must be some interesting story behind the bands on- and off-again status. Yet, the group still manages to produce some of the best rock music of our era. These New York City musicians seem like they couldn’t care less about how they’re received, which make them good candidates for the title of most badass band in the US. They must have some killer backstage parties, too.

Wiz Khalifa
Between all of the paper planes and champagne that is tossed around, I would be amazed to see when Wiz finds time to grab the mic and go in on a track. This dude seems like he is having the most fun of any other artist out there, and it’s crazy to note how much he’s evolved and succeeded this year alone. I’m sure this documentary would be filled with the raspy laugh and smoke that all his Taylors have come to know and love.

Odd Future
From Tyler, the Creator’s Twitter feed alone, you can tell the guys in OFWGKTA take no shame in making sure they’re having fun. I envision this documentary to be a mix of “Jackass” and a horror movie. To make things better, Tyler could just direct the whole thing himself (check out his nomination for Video of the Year at this year’s VMAs!). First a VMA, maybe next an Oscar?

Which artists would you like see behind the scenes?
