And the pop singer is giving his fans a lot of bang for their buck for taking the time to vote in the cover-art contest. </P><P> </P><P>After fans voted on Twitter for their favorite of two photos, the shot of Bieber tousling his hair (also known as #JBboyfriend1) won as the single’s cover. But that doesn’t mean that other shots won’t also be used in one form or another. </P><P> </P><P><center><embed src=”http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:744691/cp~id%3D1680192%26vid%3D744691%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Amtv.com%3A744691%26instance%3Dmtv” width=”460″ height=”260″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowFullScreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” base=”.” flashVars=””></embed></center> </P><P> </P><P>”But it was so close that …” Bieber <a href=”https://twitter.com/#!/justinbieber” target=”_blank”>tweeted</a>. “We are still going to use #JBboyfriend2 for press and even took one of the FAN MADE submissions and have decided that … we are going to sell an exclusive #BOYFRIEND fan single package in WALMART and the cover will be the one U the fans made! </P><P> </P><P>”So here it is … the cover of the Walmart #BOYFRIEND SINGLE COVER … made by U the fans! thank u!

Justin Bieber Joins Carly Rae Jepsen On ‘Ellen’

Biebs introduces his artist’s performance and offers a preview of his single ‘Boyfriend.’
By Natasha Chandel

<P><a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/bieber_justin/artist.jhtml”>Justin Bieber</a> is standing behind his girl. <a href=”http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/carly_rae_jepsen/artist.jhtml”>Carly Rae Jepsen</a> made her first major U.S. talk-show appearance on Friday’s (March 23) “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and she brought quite the surprise with her: Bieber himself and an exclusive preview of <a href=”/news/articles/1681664/justin-bieber-boyfriend.jhtml”>his song “Boyfriend.”</a> </P><P> </P><P>Ellen began the segment attempting to read an intro for Jepsen, the 26-year-old Canadian singer who won the hearts of pop enthusiasts with her catchy, upbeat single <a href=”/news/articles/1681155/carly-rae-jepsen-justin-bieber-curiosity.jhtml”>”Call Me Maybe”</a> but was interrupted by an eruption of screaming girls who caught sight of a black-and-yellow-clad Justin Bieber. The young heartthrob took the opportunity to introduce Jepsen, whom he recently signed to his Schoolboy Records label. He had been making a public Twitter bid to Ellen to have his new artist appear on her daytime show. </P><P> </P><P><object name=”kaltura_player_1332533343″ id=”kaltura_player_1332533343″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowScriptAccess=”always” allowNetworking=”all” allowFullScreen=”true” height=”283″ width=”430″ data=”http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/1_empy1jxw/uiconf_id/6995152″><param name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”always” /><param name=”allowNetworking” value=”all” /><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true” /><param name=”bgcolor” value=”#000000″ /><param name=”movie” value=”http://cdnapi.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/1_empy1jxw/uiconf_id/6995152″/><param name=”flashVars” value=””/><a href=”http://corp.kaltura.com”>video platform</a><a href=”http://corp.kaltura.com/video_platform/video_management”>video management</a><a href=”http://corp.kaltura.com/solutions/video_solution”>video solutions</a><a href=”http://corp.kaltura.com/video_platform/video_publishing”>video player</a></object> </P><P> </P><P>Jepsen, who calls her style “folky pop,” took to the stage in a long, bohemian dress. Jepsen sang her hit song, currently at #8 on the iTunes singles chart alongside the Wanted and Katy Perry. Her performance was applauded by Ellen and topped off with a giant hug from her new mentor. </P><P> </P><P>During an interview with Ellen, Bieber recalled hearing Jepsen’s track on the radio in Canada and jumping on YouTube to find out more about the “talented” singer. After learning of her local success, Bieber realized she was unsigned in the U.S. and immediately decided to change that. </P><P> </P><P>Life has certainly taken a 180-degree turn for Jepsen in the last two months. “I had never branched outside of Canada, and I didn’t know how to do that, and then one miraculous day, Justin called,” Jepsen told Ellen. “It seemed too good to be true.” There is also talk of a possible <a href=”/news/articles/1681004/justin-bieber-carly-rae-jepsen-collaboration.jhtml”>collaboration with Bieber</a>. </P><P> </P><P>Bieber is taking his new A&R role very seriously, promoting Jepsen in any way possible, including dropping a video spoof of “Call Me Maybe” featuring famous friends Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and Carlos Pena Jr. of Big Time Rush. </P><P> </P><P><i>Did you like Carly Rae Jepsen’s performance on “Ellen”?
