Aaron Carter has claimed Michael Jackson gave him cocaine and alcohol when he was 15.

The 'Crazy Little Party Girl' hitmaker - who spent a month in rehab earlier this year for "emotional and spiritual" issues - was friends with the now deceased King of Pop but admitted he became so "uncomfortable" with how Michael acted towards him, his mother eventually called the police.

Speaking to Australia's OK! magazine, Aaron, now 23, said: "I never talked about it. This is the first time. I do . I miss Michael. I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did. But I was also troubled about what he did to me.

"Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15.

"He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff. We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behavior bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police..."

Aaron - whose brother is Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter - is currently working on a new album in the hope of re-launching his music career and his manager Johnny Wright believes his time in rehab will help him succeed.

Johnny said: "Several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body. Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with.

Snoop Dogg wants to release his own dictionary.

The 39-year-old rapper would love to release a 'Doggtionary,' which would give definitions to the unusual words and phrases he uses in his everyday speech.

Asked if he would release his own phrase book, he said: "Oh that's dope. I like that. A Doggtionary, where I break down my words, give you a definition and put it in a sentence with a noun, an adverb and an adjective. You might have one there."

The rapper went on to explain the differences between a 'G' and a 'hustla' as referenced in his song 'Gz and Hustlas'.

He told Q magazine: "A 'G' is a gangster at all times and he takes what he wants. He doesn't give a f**k, that's just how it is and he's more feared than respected.

"A 'hustla' is one who's going to get money by any means necessary."

Snoop is also famed for using the phrase "fo-shizzle," which he says means "definite."

He explained: "To me, it just means 'for sure' or 'a definite.' Is everything cool? Fo-shizzle. You feeling good today? Fo-shizzle."

Lady Gaga has branded claims she tried to profit from her charity wristbands as "misguided."

The 'Edge of Glory' singer is being sued for $5 million after being accused of deliberately inflating the cost of shipping and handling of the 'We Pray for Japan' bracelets - which were being sold for $5, plus $3.99 for shipping and handling, and 60 cents for taxes - in order to profit from the charitable venture, which was initiated to raise money for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, but she has now hit back at the allegations.

Her spokesman said: "This misguided lawsuit is without merit and unfortunately takes attention away from the kind deeds of the fans around the world who are supporting the people of Japan.

"The entire $5 donation made with the purchase of each bracelet is going to support the disaster relief. No profit is being made on shipping costs. Sales tax charges were made in accordance with local legal requirements.

"Lady Gaga has personally pledged her own funds to this cause and continues to support the victims of the disaster."

Ari Kresch, an attorney with Michigan-based 1-800-LAW-FIRM, had previously said: "I'm suing Lady Gaga simply to hold her accountable for giving the money that she was raising for charity to the cause that she was trying to raise it for."

Justin Bieber wants a new sound.

The 'Baby' singer is working on his second album - a follow-up to 2010's 'My World 2.0' - and is keen not to stick to one genre of music because he believes he has a voice that suits many styles.

He told MTV: "I want to work a lot with myself. I'm not gonna limit myself - I think music is music, and genre, I mean, there's country, rock, but my music is very different. My voice is not meant for any style."

The 17-year-old heartthrob is writing the album while he is on his 'My World' tour and said he couldn't wait for fans to hear his new music.

Writing on his twitter page, he said: "been writing alot of songs on the road. excited to just get this music out later this year and record this summer. (sic)"

While he is working on his second album, Justin recently revealed he would love to record a duet with girlfriend Selena Gomez because he thinks the Disney starlet's music is "amazing."

He said: "Maybe I'd sing with Selena, I've heard all of her new stuff it's amazing. I would also love to work with Will.I.Am as well as Jay-Z - on a cool fun record."
