Justin Bieber is planning to open his own store. The 16-year-old singing sensation is in negotiations with a company who helped Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian set up their Las Vegas boutique Khaos to develop a retail outlet at The Grove in Los Angeles. The store in the upmarket outdoor shopping centre would see Justin lend his image to products ranging from shoes, skateboards and lollipops. Our source told us: “They want to have everything Justin Bieber. They are also trying to find other Island Def Jam artists to be the face of some candy as well.” No opening date has been set for the store yet but it is hoped it will be launched by the end of this year. Last month Justin announced the launch of his collection of trading cards with Panini America. The ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ hitmaker’s merchandise also includes three CDs, a fragrance, a line of nail polish, T-shirts, mugs, aluminium water bottles, lunch boxes, headphones, dolls, Christmas tree ornaments, a Halloween wig and boxer shorts.

Slipknot still 'considering their future' after Paul Gray's death

Slipknot still ‘considering their future’ after Paul Gray’s death. Corey Taylor says ‘it’s too soon’ to predict the band’s future. Slipknot are still considering their future after the recent death of bassist Paul Gray. Singer Corey Taylor has admitted that, although the band are talking, it is still unclear whether they will carry on in the wake of Gray’s death. “It’s too soon right now, but we’re still talking, all of us are talking and everthing’s good but we’ll see,” he told Zane Lowe.  His words echo guitarist Jim Roots, who recently revealed the band were in mourning and their future is undecided. Gray, who passed away in May, was the victim of a lethal combination of morphine and the narcotic painkiller fentanyl – both injectable substances.   Taylor is currently recording a new album ‘Audio Secrecy’ – due for release on September 7 – with his other band Stone Sour in Nashville, but told ZaneLowe.com that sessions were disrupted by the recent floods in the area, which left over 30 people dead. “The floods hit midway through and I wasn’t even in Nashville,” he said. “Nobody called me, nobody told me and I was catching a flight back with my wife and we stopped off in Memphis. We ran over to a TV and there were aerial shots of the Grand Ole Opry just decimated.” He continued: “We got back to Nashville and it was flooded around the house, but it wasn’t really affected. But all the neighbourhoods were and it was just crazy. I’m driving by and people are literally in boats paddling into their houses.”
