Pop star Justin Bieber has come out and denied rumors claiming he is no longer interested in working with Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West.
The 17-year-old star hit up Twitter to deny the gossip.
“some rumors…i just dont know where they come from. me and @kanyewest are good. This right here is just FALSE -http://t.co/BEphwjS,” he tweeted June 15th. (Justin Bieber’s Twitter)
Recent rumors claimed Bieber was swaying away from Ye to protect his brand.
“Justin likes Kanye’s music, but he’s worried he’s done too many controversial things and it would hurt his image,” a source alleged. “Between the sex scandals, political gaffes and interrupting Taylor Swift, Kanye is known as a genius but a big risk to associate with!” (Digital Spy)
Additional reports claim West recruited Bieber to appear on his upcoming Watch the Throne LP.
We’re happy to hear this because we heard that Kanye, 34, reached out to Justin, 17, in order to have him work on Kanye’s upcoming collaboration album with Jay-Z, Watch The Throne. Justin has unofficially worked with Kanye before, as the rapper remixed Biebs’ song “Runaway Love” with Raekwon. (Hollywood Life)
Last January, Bieber’s manager hinted at West’s intent to work with the singer.
Along with having a taste for the finer things in life, Kanye West apparently has contracted Bieber Fever. While the illness initially presented itself as a remix back in August, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun confirmed during a recent audiochat that the Louis Vuitton Don now wants to produce and collaborate on even more tracks with the wunderkind from Toronto. Braun did not share many specifics, but said that “[Bieber] and Kanye had a call… about a song they’re trying to work on together. Kanye wants to produce a bunch of new songs for his new album.” (Consequence of Sound)
