Report: The Wanted Members Threatened by Homeless Man Armed with Knife

Facebook.com/TheWantedTwo members of The Wanted were reportedly threatened by a homeless man who was armed with a knife in Denver on Wednesday.

TMZ reports that Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness were leaving a movie theater when they came across the homeless man, who asked for money. Siva gave him a few dollars, but the man asked the boys for more. They declined, he took out a knife, and Siva and Jay “scuffled” with him. Fortunately, neither of the singers was injured.

Police were not notified of the incident.

Jay has since tweeted, "To reassure you, we were NOT stabbed, but a guy in Denver did pull a knife out on us- do not worry, we were lucky & we still love Denver."

The Wanted is currently touring North America. The band will perform on the West Coast during the next week.

Authorities Obtain Search Warrant for Bieber’s Instagram Account in Egg-Throwing Case

Facebook.com/JustinBieberA new report states that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department obtained a search warrant last month for Justin Bieber’s Instagram account, in connection with his egg-throwing incident.

The search warrant centers around a photo that Justin posted to Instagram on January 9, the same day he allegedly threw eggs at a neighbor’s home in Calabasas.

Authorities reportedly are attempting to match the sweatshirt Justin wore in the picture with a shirt worn by a person who appears in footage taken by the singer’s surveillance camera, in the area of the alleged incident, on the day in question.

The search warrant notes that Justin appeared to be “high-fiving” others and “celebrating” after the alleged incident.

Mariah Carey Plans Beyonce-Style Album Release

ABC/Donna Svennevik

Mariah Carey's fourteenth album has endured plenty of setbacks, causing many fans to wonder if it will ever see the light of day, especially since the set was recently removed from the release schedule on Island Def Jam’s official website. Fortunately, though, the singer has confirmed that the disc will arrive soon, but fans won't get the traditional advance notice of a release date.

Taking a page from Beyonce's playbook, Carey reveals in the latest issue of Billboard that she is planning a "surprise" release for her long-awaited album, which was originally due May 5 and was once to be titled The Art of Letting Go.  Last December, Beyonce released her self-titled album with no advance warning as a digital release that could only be purchased as a whole album.

Mariah will reveal her album's new title, official track list and artwork simultaneously via undisclosed digital partners.  A physical release is expected the following week.

"I have to be the one that announces this, especially the title," Mariah told Billboard. She adds the album will be named after a "personal possession of mine that's part of an entity that I've had almost all my life."

The upcoming set will include production from Jermaine Dupri, Rodney Jerkins, Hit-Boy and Mike WiLL Made It, plus guest features from Wale, Nas and Trey Songz, who remixed her latest single "You’re Mine (Eternal)."

Mimi also says that there will be "a special guest star that I’m not allowed to reveal."

So why is Mariah choosing a stealthy release, although not so stealthy that she isn't talking about it now? "I want my fans to hear it as a body of work," said Mariah. "This is my life since we last left off. Just picture a dot dot dot, and then here’s the album."

A Great Big World Says Live Show Is “Definitely Not All ‘Say Something’”

AGreatBigWorld.comA Great Big World may have found fame thanks to their ballad "Say Something," but that's not the only song in their repertoire.  In other words, if you go to see the duo live, don't expect an hour of sleepy, piano tunes.  On stage, the duo likes to rock out.

"I feel like it's more rock-y than it is pop-y,"  A Great Big World's Chad Vaccarino tells ABC News Radio about their live show. His bandmate Ian Axel agrees: "I feel like when you listen to the record, it's, like, more of a pop album, but when you come to our show, it rocks pretty hard." Adds Chad,  "We're just having the most fun on stage as we possibly can."

While you may think A Great Big World is just two guys and a piano, their concerts feature a more beefed-up sound. "We have a band.  It's five guys. It's very high-energy. We run around the stage and just have a good time," explains Ian. "I mean, it's basically what it is and we share that good time with everybody else who's there.  So, it's definitely not all 'Say Something'...it's a little bit of a roller-coaster." 

"Our songs kinda go all over the place and it feels that way when you're there in a room at a show," he adds.

Another unexpected thing about A Great Big World shows is who attends them.  According to Chad and Ian, their fans cut across all age ranges.  "It's really interesting.  I think we're still trying to figure it out.  They're all over the place demographically," Ian says of their fans. But young or old, everyone is united in their love of the duo's music.

"I think the biggest thing is that people are singing all the words to every song at the shows now," Chad notes. "Which is crazy 'cause that's not really happened before!" 

If you want to check out A Great Big World's live set, they've got about a month's worth of U.S. dates left on their schedule before they head overseas for a European tour.  They'll be back in North America in June for more dates, though -- visit AGreatBigWorld.com to check out all the duo's scheduled shows.

Justin Bieber Detained by Customs Officials at L.A. Airport

Island RecordsJustin Bieber had a rough landing in Los Angeles on Thursday after arriving from his Japan vacation.

U.S. Customs officials detained Justin after he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport, according to an ABC News source. He was subjected to a routine "Q&A process" regarding his run-ins with the law, like the pending DUI case in Florida.  An official briefed on the situation told ABC News that Bieber cleared Customs around 6:30 p.m. local time.

Bieber's rep had no comment when contacted by ABC News.

It's not uncommon for customs and immigration officials to question non-citizens who arrive in the U.S. and have open legal proceedings. The Canadian was briefly detained in February when his private jet arrived in New Jersey from Canada for Super Bowl festivities.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released a statement Thursday that didn't address Justin's situation specifically, but noted the agency's officers are "charged with enforcing not only immigration and customs laws, but they also enforce over 400 laws for 40 other agencies and have stopped thousands of violators of U.S. law."

Justin was arrested in Miami Beach back in January following an alleged drag race. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license.
