"The wheels are definitely turning," Adam Young tells Popeater. Although Young, who is better known as Owl City, the basement wunderkind behind 2009's breakthrough album 'Ocean Eyes,' spent most of 2010 on the road both headlining clubs in North America and Europe and opening stadiums for John Mayer over the summer, he's not referring to the tour bus. He's speaking metaphorically about his next...

Despite recent reports that Justin Timberlake is gunning for an Oscar, earlier this year Timberlake scoffed at the mention of the coveted Academy Award.

The setting for Boys Like Girls' new video for the hi-energy pop rocker 'Heart Heart Heartbreak' might seem simple enough. The clip pairs the Boston-based band with a bevy of glamorous girls at a fictitious beauty pageant. However, there's a huge dose of good-humored irony as the quartet pokes a little fun with both the ideals of beauty and their own roots. Check the sashes that the girls are...

Justin Timberlake is no stranger to winning awards, though the one he was given on Friday night was certainly a bit stranger than usual. Wearing a bra, wig and high heels, the six-time Grammy and two-time Emmy-winning singer, producer and actor was presented with Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals "Pudding Pot" and named its 44th Man of the Year. Half an hour earlier, Timberlake,...

Prince Harry was greeted at the Garrison Museum in Bridgetown, Barbados, Saturday, by the vibrant sounds of a steel drum band playing Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida.' "Go on Harry, have a go," cried out one gnarly British paparazzi who goaded the prince as he stood and listened to the band. " I'll be doing it afterwards," Harry retorted quickly. "We're just going in to practice inside," he quipped...
