To save his sanity, Justin Bieber has announced that he is done posing for photos with fans.
Following his much-snapped and much-talked-about barefoot stroll around Boston on Monday, May 9, the Canadian singer/songwriter took to Instagram to vent his frustration with fans, who hounded him as he made his way around the city's Public Garden and Boston Common.
"If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I'm not gonna take a picture," the "Purpose" artist wrote. "I'm done taking pictures." more >>
Kirk Franklin is shooting down rumors that he called Jesus Christ "fake," and compared humanity's Savior to the Easter Bunny.
A satirical website called Celebtricity that claims to be the "most dangerous satire website in the world with the most shocking Fauxtire News to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief," posted the fictional narrative about the 46-year-old minister of music, which confounded people who followed the story on social media and assumed it was true.
The Celebtricity story claimed Franklin said: "Every human being was wired with the desire for happiness. And we will try different things all in the pursuit of that feeling. I'm saying, if you really want to be happy, you have to start with YOURSELF, don't be brainwashed by a make believe deity. My goal is to try to lead people to the manufacturer of their souls because we all know Jesus is as fake as the Easter Bunny." more >>

Lecrae's star power has earned him Grammy awards and dominated Billboard charts, but it took the Christian rapper some time to grab the attention of professional athletes.
During an episode of ESPN's "First Take" last Thursday, the 35-year-old Christian rapper who was the first to simultaneously top both the Billboard gospel music charts and the Billboard 200 with his 2014 album Anomaly, admitted that the Sacramento Kings basketball team were not quick to give his music a chance. After one of the team's coaches announced he was giving away CDs from the Christian rapper, people weren't too keen on taking the offer.
"I think in the locker room, athletes want to hear something to get them riled up," he said. "They want to hear something to get them focused on the field, on the court, whatever it may be, and I provide an alternative to some of the other stuff that some cats might be listening to." more >>
Gotee Records' newest artist Hollyn was first introduced to the world on the American Idol stage, but after two years of working on her debut album, the young singer is now winning over people's hearts alongside Christian pioneer TobyMac.
The Ohio native was raised in church and music has always had a big influence on her life. Christian music lovers were first introduced to Hollyn on TobyMac's latest album release with the songs "Lights Shine Bright" and "Backseat Driver," which she was also a co-writer on.
As a singer/songwriter, Hollyn co-wrote five of the six tracks on her eponymous debut EP. The edgy inspiring musical piece was produced by Grammy-winning producers Cobra (Dirty Rice and Joseph Prielozny). Cobra also produced two tracks on the award-winning album Anomaly from Lecrae, which explains why Hollyn was able to release her own version of the hip-hop hit by covering Lecrae's Dove Award winning song, "All I Need Is You." more >>
