Justin Bieber is bouncing back from his brouhaha over Instagram, which included a backlash from his Beliebers over his gal pal, Sofia Richie, and scolding comments from his former girlfriend Selena Gomez. Drumming up excitement for his musical future, the Biebs teased new music as well as a possible collaboration with Rihanna in an interview with Capital FM.
Diplo and Justin are pals, and the two have been working intensely on new tracks.
“I did something with Diplo recently but I’m not sure what’s going to come out of it,” hinted Bieber. “But Riff Raff is on it and Young Thug’s on it. I’m not sure what they’re doing with the song though, it’s called ‘Bankroll.'”
As for Rihanna, Justin revealed that he and the singer have spent time together, and he wants to work with her.
“We talked a little bit, I told her how much I liked her new song ‘Needed Me.’ We haven’t done a song together, [we should] for sure,” emphasized the pop prince.
Bieber and Rihanna were seen partying together in London, England, and the Biebs surprised everyone by appearing not with reported new girlfriend Sofia but with another blonde beauty, hot model Bronte Blampied, reported ET.
Rihanna, Justin, and Bronte enjoyed themselves at hot spot Tape nightclub prior to the two singers’ individual double-headlining performances at Virgin Media’s V Festival. Flaunting her cleavage, Rihanna went for a denim outfit and sported silver boots, with the Biebs going casual in his standard garb of ripped jeans and white T-shirt.
At 4 a.m., Bieber and Blampied were seen exiting the nightclub as a couple. That late night/early morning party time was linked to his comments the next night, when he confessed he was suffering from day-after-drinking issues.
“I’m a little hungover.”
Those at the nightclub appreciated the sight of the pop prince, however, sharing their delight on social media.
When you realise #JustinBieber is bussin moves and bouncing hard to your set. This guy is seriously very cool and down to earth. He walked in came right over and shook my hand and gave me a hug and said 'Hi'...20 minutes later he came back over to me and said 'Your set is dope, you're killing it, killing it so hard man' The fact he remembered me from djing at the jingle bell ball gig sums him up. #TopGuy @tapelondon @justinbieber #BussinMoves ????????????????????
“When you realise #JustinBieber is bussin moves and bouncing hard to your set,” wrote the appreciative follower, gushing his praise for the Biebs.
“[Justin] is seriously very cool and down to earth.”
In addition, the fan revealed that Bieber had shown his impressive memory when it comes to other musicians.
“He walked in came right over and shook my hand and gave me a hug and said ‘Hi’…20 minutes later he came back over to me and said ‘Your set is dope, you’re killing it, killing it so hard man’ The fact he remembered me from djing at the jingle bell ball gig sums him up. #TopGuy @tapelondon @justinbieber #BussinMoves,” added the Belieber.
As for just how serious his relationship with Bronte might be? On Sunday, Blampied rode with Justin in a private helicopter. The two flew together from Battersea Heliport to Staffordshire for his night two closing set.
Bronte and Justin have a previous friendship, and she’s even traveled with him before. Blampied was seen on his recent vacation in Hawaii, and she shared a picture on Instagram of the Biebs and pals.
Beliebers flocked to Blampied’s Instagram page when the news broke that she might be Justin’s new girlfriend, with some defending Bronte.
“This girl is beautiful and has done nothing wrong like someone else who shall not be named,” wrote one fan, hinting at the backlash over Richie.
As for the whereabouts of Bieber’s previously rumored gal pal, she answered the question on Instagram.
But while his 17-year-old rumored girlfriend was having her hair cut in her hometown of Los Angeles, the Biebs kept right on partying in London. Hollywood Life reported that Bieber and Bronte were seen together enjoying their good times twice in one weekend.
Does this mean it’s time for Bieber to sing “Sorry” to Richie? After deleting his Instagram account specifically because of the harsh comments his followers made about her, the 17-year-old feels “closer than ever” to Justin, an insider told Hollywood Life.
“He used his issues with his Instagram to prove to her that she is important to him and that his intentions with her are sincere,” shared the source. “They feel closer than ever.”
However, the real test is yet to come, because the teenager turns 18 on August 24. She was seen with a male friend at an Adele concert on Sunday, according to ET.
Will Bieber step up and deliver a special birthday surprise, or stay with his new model friend Bronte? Wednesday will reveal the answer.
