Another day, another shirtless photo of Justin Bieber. But this one isn't just some selfie on Instagram. This photo was shot by famed fashion photographer, Mario Testino, for his towel series.

The snapshot was posted to the photographer's social media on Monday (March 23). And as you can probably guess by the photo series' title, it features Bieber in nothing but a towel.

Bieber's photo comes days after another equally-sexy snapshot featuring Cody Simpson and his model girlfriend Gigi Hadid was released. While Bieber posed solo, what both photos have in common is that everyone is giving their fiercest faces for the camera.

Justin Bieber is ready to take the stage this summer in the U.K.

The singer has just been confirmed to headline the Fusion Festival, set to take place in Birmingham's Cofton Park this August.

Bieber will play the Friday night show on Aug. 28, Captial FM reports. It marks his first show there in two years; Bieber's last U.K. date was in 2013 during his Believe tour, which wrapped up later that year. "I love the UK and I'm excited to be playing at Fusion this year," Bieber said in a statement. "There are some great artists on the line-up so to be headlining the Friday night, is a real honor."

Bieber also tweeted he's excited to return to the stage.

Missed the stage. Time to get back to work

Other artists slated to perform that night include Rixton, Rudimental, Tinie Tempah, DJ Fresh, and Fuse ODG.

On Aug. 29, Rudimental, Labrinth, Clean Bandit, Ella Henderson, Sigma and Becky Hill will perform.

And on the festival's last night, on Aug. 30, the line-up includes McBusted, The Vamps, Jess Glynne, Gorgon City, Conor Maynard and Union J.

He's back!

On Mar. 24, Justin Bieber confirmed he will play the Fusion Festival this August in the UK. It marks the pop star's return to the stage after a lengthy absence from performing. He wrapped up his Believe tour back in December 2013, with the singer taking his final curtain call in Perth, Australia and hasn't performed much since.

In 2014, Bieber remained mostly off the stage, but 2015 finds that he has since been making an effort to return to performing. Earlier this month, he staged a comeback of sorts when he played the The Nice Guy club in L.A. on March 13.

With his Fusion Festival date since months off, Bieber took to Twitter to share his excitement for performing again.

"Missed the stage. Time to get back to work," he tweeted on Tuesday (Mar. 24), the same day news broke of his headlining gig.

Justin Bieber Helps Skrillex & Diplo Hit Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Top 10

Justin Bieber Helps Skrillex & Diplo Hit Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Top 10:

Skrillex and Diplo each celebrate their first top 10 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart with "Where Are U Now" (13-9), featuring Justin Bieber. It registered second-week sales of 17,000 downloads in the week ending March 8, according to Nielsen Music, while capturing 1.5 million U.S. streams (with 80 percent stemming from Spotify).



Bieber, the track's vocalist, is one of eight acts featured on Skrillex & Diplo Present Jack U, which debuted at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums last week (on the chart dated March 14). In addition to "Where," Skrillex and Diplo post six other tracks on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, including three debuts. Skrillex increases his mark as the act with the most entries (21) since the latter chart's January  2013 launch.

Skrillex & Diplo's 'Jack U' Debuts at No. 1 on Top Dance/Electronic Albums

TIME FLIES: Deorro returns to Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Five More Hours" (No. 15), a new version of his hit "Five Hours," which peaked at No. 14 in September. Formerly a Le7els/PMRD release and containing a vocal by DyCy, the new version is on Ultra and features Chris Brown. "More" arrives with 9,000 sold, good for a No. 10 start on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs.

MAJOR NEWS: Major Lazer and DJ Snake slither onto Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with "Lean On," the Hot Shot Debut at No. 12. It's the highest-charting track for Lazer since "Bubble Butt" worked (twerked?) its way to No. 8 in July 2013 and the highest-ranking for Snake since his 12-week reign at No. 1 with "Turn Down for What" last year.

"Lean" launches with 19,000 sold and bows at No. 4 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs.



'NEW' No. 1: In another teaming of solo acts, Axwell & Ingrosso ignite Dance Club Songs with their first No. 1 as a duo, "Something New" (3-1). Previously, the DJs topped the chart three times as members of Swedish House Mafia, while Axwell first led with Robbie Rivera on "Burning" (featuring Suzan Brittan) in 2004.

"New" follows Axwell & Ingrosso's "Can't Hold Us Down," which reached No. 5 two months ago. In addition to the original version, remixes from Robin Schulz and Amtrac helped lift "New" to No. 1.

MIX-UPS: Over on Dance/Mix Show Airplay, Taylor Swift scores her third top 10, all in a row, with "Style" (13-10). Previous 1989 hits "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space" peaked at Nos. 6  and 4, respectively.

Meanwhile, Zedd soars 21-8 with "I Want You to Know," featured vocalist Selena Gomez. It's the sixth top 10 for the DJ in as many chart visits, with three having hit No. 1. "Want" is also the third top 10, and first in three years, for Gomez. She hit No. 1 in 2010 with "Naturally" and followed with the No. 9-peaking  "Love You Like a Love Song" in 2012.

Thanks to multimillion-dollar talent, a 22,000-pound kinetic chandelier and the first "legal" club appearance by Justin Bieber, Omnia Nightclub in Caesars Palace made a big splash during its opening weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Three nights of only-in-Vegas revelry kicked off Thursday with a headlining set by the world's highest-paid DJ, Calvin Harris.

Formerly the legendary Pure nightclub, Omnia joins Hakkasan Group's ever-growing pantheon of venues, including Hakkasan-brand restaurants worldwide and Omnia San Diego, scheduled to open this spring. Hakkasan Group is also the largest non-gaming company on the Las Vegas Strip.

Justin Bieber Wraps Roast With Humility: 'I've Turned A Lot of People Off'

"When I came to Las Vegas [in the early 2000s], it was an interesting time for the city. There were a couple of nightclubs, not very good ones at that," says Neil Moffitt, Hakkasan Group CEO and one of electronic-dance music's most influential figures. "With this opportunity, I wanted to kick the ball so far down the street that it's even difficult for the haters to hate this venue. I feel a sense of complete fulfillment."

Moffitt has developed a venue that can handle music-lovers and celebrity-seekers, equally. "What I wanted to do was create a timeless piece – for example doing Justin's 21st birthday and Martin Garrix headlining – two ends of the spectrum musically, but we can accommodate both of them very well."

Omnia unfolds over 75,000 square feet and is divided into three spaces: the main club including a mezzanine with skyboxes, a terrace with a panoramic view of the Strip and the Heart of Omnia, a super exclusive open-format club-in-club led by L.A.'s H.wood Group. (Hakkasan Group acquired the company founded by John Terzian and Brian Toll last year.)

"John and Brian are the right partners for us period," Moffitt says. "We made an investment into their company after I met them once in L.A. We will help them develop their business in other markets. Heart is luxurious and cool... I wanted a second room that was a different experience."

The focal point of the main room is the kinetic chandelier, consisting of eight concentric rings, embedded in a 65-foot dome. Throughout the night, the fixture acts as a canvas for various production elements including theatrical lighting effects, video projections and LEDs. Moffitt says it offers an infinite number of possibilities.

"I am not a big fan of mezzanines so I challenged the team to come up with something to make the people in the balcony feel part of it," he says. "I wanted it to be spectacular. I wanted to create a category killer in terms of design, luxury, space and technology. The chandelier was something that came about to bring the mezzanine down and what we finished with is the most spectacular piece of production in the world."

Saturday night was an equally spectacular one for Bieber, Omnia's guest of honor on the occasion of his 21st birthday (which was actually March 1), was coming hot from the taping of his Comedy Central roast earlier in the night.

Sources say the Biebs was paid an estimated $500,000 for his Vegas stint. Fans surrounded the red carpet on the casino floor of Caesars Palace, inciting a near stampede when he arrived shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday. His second stop was the club's main room where he immediately grabbed a bottle and poured shots for his friends. Posing for pictures with Moffitt, Bieber playfully rearranged the numbers on a birthday cake – in the form of his '65 black Lincoln Continental – to read 12 instead of 21. He then briefly addressed the crowd and greeted fellow School Boy recording artist, 18-year-old Omnia headliner Garrix.

The rest of the evening Bieber spent in Heart of Omnia acting as any 21-year old would: poppin' bottles, dancing on the DJ booth and singing "Happy Birthday"... to himself.

Questlove, David Arquette, Pasquale Rotella, Miguel, Kris Jenner, Katharine McPhee, Elyes Gabel, photographer Steve Shaw and a gaggle of models, including Margaux Brooke, from his Los Angeles-based publication Treats!, also partied at Omnia opening weekend.

Justin Bieber's Comedy Central roast was a mostly hilarious affair, until the very end when, following a rebuttal (among the highlights: "What do you get when you give a teenager $200 million? A bunch of has-beens calling you a lesbian for two hours"; and "a big screen for Kevin Hart is an iPad mini"), the 21-year-old pop star took a moment to reflect on his troubles in recent years.

After some self-deprecating quips -- "I turned a plane into a bong" -- Bieber acknowledged having "turned a lot of people off the past few years." Said the singer: "There was no preparing me for this life. I got thrown into this at 12 years old. There are moments I'm proud of and things I've done that don't define who I am. I look forward to being someone you're proud of. ... I'm excited to see what's next."

Looking in the camera, he declared, "You have my word -- I will not end up broken, pathetic, bitter or sitting on someone else's roast. I'm at a moment of change. This is a new day."

Following the five-hour taping, Bieber spoke with reporters about the verbal beatdown, revealing that the many Selena Gomez jokes didn't bother him. "Everybody was going balls to the wall," said Bieber. "It was whatever."

Although he did note that some jokes -- like those about Paul Walker -- were especially offensive, in the end, it was all in good fun. As for what he's doing next? Bieber told the room of journalists: "I'm going to Vegas ... on my jet, bitch!"

Roast of Justin Bieber airs March 30 on Comedy Central.

Consider it a warm-up gig for his Comedy Central roast.

Justin Bieber Roast Lineup Adds 'Saturday Night Live' Star Pete Davidson

Justin Bieber unexpectedly took the stage in Hollywood on Friday night (March 13), playing an impromptu acoustic set at The Nice Guy club.



According to several people in the crowd, the 21-year-old star crooned through his 2012 hit, "As Long As You Love Me," with longtime musical director Dan Kanter on guitar, and tried out the song "Home to Mama," released last fall, as well. The latter was being played live only for the second time ever, the first being at Will Ferrell's celebrity tennis charity event on March 10 in La Quinta, Calif.

Bieber was at the Hollywood nightspot with his grandparents and the group had dinner there earlier in the evening, says a source. Wearing a black hat, leather jacket and sporting longer hair, Bieber took the microphone just after 11 p.m.

"It was a good time -- really intimate but so crowded," an attendee tells Billboard. "Justin was in a great mood, mingling with everyone and taking pictures. And he sounded great."

Bieber gets roasted by the likes of Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart tonight in Culver City, Calif. The Comedy Central Roast airs later in March.

Justin Bieber is "focused and ready" for his Comedy Central Roast, taping today (March 14) and airing on March 30. So says veteran roaster Jeff Ross, who adds, "This will be insane; If Biebs were any younger, this would qualify as child abuse."

Indeed, if all goes according to plan, the 21-year-old singer is due to get a colossal verbal beating in a matter of hours -- and it's all at his own request. As Kent Alterman, Comedy Central president of content development and original programming tells The Hollywood Reporter: "Justin approached us. He said, 'I'm turning 21 and I wanna be roasted.' It shows great perspective and courage on his part."

Comedy Central has roasted only a couple of musicians and never someone so young, but Alterman says Bieber was a no-brainer in that he's "a huge iconic megastar … who's grown up in the public." He adds that a roast provides the opportunity to face your transgressions head on. "Once you've done a roast, you're untouchable. A lot of that baggage can dissipate."

Justin Bieber Roast Lineup Adds 'Saturday Night Live' Star Pete Davidson

As for what could potentially go wrong when the likes of Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart, Ludacris and Shaquille O'Neal gather to Bieber-bash? Alterman says his worst nightmare (other than technical issues) is that "someone storms off the stage," but notes that Comedy Central, which has roasted Charlie Sheen, Joan Rivers, Donald Trump and James Franco in the past, has fine-tuned the "delicate balance between going for the jugular and having some compassion, respect and affection."

To hear Ross tell it, the gloves are off. "I've spoken with all the comedians and we are all bringing firepower."

Justin Bieber Covers 'Men's Health,' The Rise of Accessories Designers

Justin Bieber Covers 'Men's Health,' The Rise of Accessories Designers:

Men's Health chose Justin Bieber for the cover of April's "Reinvention Issue," a choice Editor in Chief Bill Phillips pre-emptively explained in an editor's letter by writing, "We're all a work in progress." True—and nobody more so than the Biebs. {Men’s Health}

As bags and footwear become increasingly crucial parts of fashion houses' businesses, the previously unnoticed geniuses behind accessories design are coming to the fore. Just take former Gucci Accessories Director Alessandro Michele's recent appointment as the house's overall creative director as an example. {NY Times}

New York Times Styles reporter John Koblin, who has tackled stories like Gucci's messy leadership transition and how the fall of the ruble impacted Paris Couture Week, is moving on from fashion writing to take over the television beat from media desk veteran Bill Carter.
