Justin Bieber — X Factor Mentor

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

JUSTIN Bieber is going to be a mentor on X Factor USA.

The teen singer is assisting L.A. Reid at the Judges’ Houses stage of the competition, where he is helping him pick the best acts from his category — which is rumored to be the over-25s — to go through to the live shows.

The pair were spotted filming for the talent show in Los Angeles Monday, and Justin posed for photographers in a white T-shirt and sunglasses before later admitting he’d had a “great day”.

He wrote on twitter, “Long day but great day. @LA_Reid @ScooterBraun just like old times! thanks (sic)”

L.A. previously signed the 18-year-old singing sensation to Island Def Jam during his time as chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group before he quit in March 2011 to join the US X Factor, and the music mogul — who was helped out by Rihanna during last year’s show — was delighted to be reunited with Justin and his manager Scooter Braun.

He wrote, “Great day with my guys! @justinbieber @scooterbraun @TheXFactorUSA. (sic)”

Meanwhile, it’s been claimed that Bieber tells girlfriend Selena Gomez that she’s “beyond lucky” to have him as a boyfriend.

The actress has been urged to dump the Baby hitmaker.

“She’s so arrogant and immature at times,” a source says. “Her friends keep telling her to just dump him for good already.”

But whenever he senses that Selena is ready to dump, he pulls off some romantic stunt, like renting the Staples Center for a screening of Titanic.

“Those kind of gestures go a long way with her,” the source says. “But she probably won’t put up with him much longer.”
