It's okay, Justin, we still love you!

Zendaya may have teamed up on an empowerment anthem with Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, and more female stars, but just singing on This Is For My Girls wasn't enough for the performer — because now she's taking the next step!
Zendaya is helping to launch America Online's MAKERS STORIES app — a tech initiative giving 50 women a chance to be in the star-studded music video for the song!
The app, which is linked with Michelle Obama's Let Girls Learn initiative, is calling women from across the globe to submit clips — fifty of which will be chosen to appear in the video along side the First Lady and music superstars!
Zendaya sounded VERY excited about the app's launch and the entire This Is For My Girls initiative, saying in her own MAKERS STORIES clip (below):
Is there anything this wonderful woman CAN'T do?!
On Tuesday, Michelle Obama dropped a song — yes, a SONG — and it's quite the star-studded collaboration!
This Is For My Girls features the vocal prowess of fierce females Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Kelly Clarkson, Kelly Rowland, Janelle Monáe, Lea Michele, Jadagrace, and Chloe x Halle — AKA the singing sisters Beyoncé signed to her production company.
DAMN! That's a lot of lovely ladies!
The jam was created to raise awareness for the 52-year-old's Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to help young women across the globe receive an education.
And while we don't get to hear the First Lady's voice on the Diane Warren-penned track, we do get to hear the girl power anthem on the radio!
Chloe x Halle will also be performing the song at the event!
The track will be available on iTunes at midnight, and all proceeds will go towards the Peace Corps' Let Girls Learn Fund.
But for now, ch-ch-check out some snippets (below)!
We can't say we're surprised!
But the contestant and his mentor took a back seat to another singer who appeared on the show last night — Justin Bieber!
The 21-year-old stopped by the show to sing his hit song Sorry, and he had nothing to apologize for — he absolutely killed it!
JB started the song off on a slow note playing the piano before the beat picked up and the backup dancers came out to play.
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing performances (below) and let us know what your favorite moment was!
Missy Elliott is back — and this time it's personal!
And in an interview with Billboard magazine, Missy did just that by declaring most songs she hears these days "sound alike."
But when she was asked specifically about Nicki Minaj being influenced by her sound, she "mock-innocently" said:
She's back and better than ever!
Missy Elliott may have been the reigning queen of rap back in the early '00s, but for a little while there, we were scared we'd seen the last of the Lose Control lyricist.
In a recent interview with i-D Magazine, Missy attributed her NFL performance entirely to KP, saying:
24 years in the business, and she's still nailing that choreo!
Missy Elliott may be known for ruling the world of hip hop in the '90s and '00s, but that doesn't mean she's about to lose control of the current generation.
The rapper just released her first music video in seven years!!! Yeah… we can't believe it's been that long either!
Missy teamed up with Pharrell for her latest single WTF (Where They From), and it feels like the vintage Misdemeanor we know and love.
From standout costumes to en pointe choreography, Missy is back and we're really feeling her take on modern rap music.
Ch-ch-check out Missy's triumphant return with a little help from Pharrell (above)!!!
This would be FANTASTIC!
While no news has broken since those rumors, it's now being reported that Maroon 5 is the frontrunner to perform the mega show!
If they land the gig, this would be their first Super Bowl performance!
We wouldn't be surprised though if they're not the only ones who show up as surprise guests are becoming more and more common!
