Justin Bieber isn't going to let his split with Selena Gomez keep him from attending the American Music Awards on Sunday. The pop star was originally slated to sit next to Selena at the A-list event, but now that they've broken up, she's pulled out of the ceremony entirely. Though we're sure Justin wouldn't have had any trouble filling Selena's empty seat (he could have even invited a fan), the singer decided to ask the one woman who's always been by his side -- his mom! "@pattiemallette miss u. love u. wanna be my date this weekend?" Justin tweeted yesterday. We hope she says yes!

Aguilera's labor of love

Christina Aguilera is an amazing judge on "The Voice," and she is also an amazing performer, as she proved when she took the stage with Cee Lo Green to perform "Make the World Move," her new single from her latest album, "Lotus." But for a woman who has proved time and time again she is incredible, what does this latest album mean to her career? "It's my labor of love, I give my entire heart and soul in every record that I do," Christina told us.
