Justin Bieber: Drinking and Driving at T-Pain’s House

T-Pain and Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber was caught drinking and driving once again, but this time, it was at T-Pain’s crib. The “Confident” singer stopped by the Auto-Tune King’s house in Atlanta for some work and play.

Rocking gold chains and sunglasses, the Biebs raced T-Pain in an arcade game while holding a red cup. They also hit the studio to record some music.

T-Pain and his wife Amber Najm snapped a photo with the embattled star in their game room.

“I’m still up working w/ @PainzGirl & @justinbieber,” tweeted T-Pain.

Pain has been eyeing some big names for the remix to his single “Up Down (Do This All Day)” including Rihanna and André 3000. Could the Biebs be one of the featured guests or is a new collaboration in the works?

Rap-Up TV: T-Pain Defends Future, Co-Signs Chance the Rapper

T-Pain may be the king of Auto-Tune, but he doesn’t mind when others use it. The “Up Down” singer dismissed reports of friction with Future and defended the Atlanta rapper’s Auto-Tuned music.

“I’m down with it. I like it. I totally like it,” T-Pain told Rap-Up TV. “People always ask me how I feel. I’m flattered. I feel like that’s what’s working because I made it work.”

But he did take a moment to brag. “People wouldn’t be using Auto-Tune at all if it wasn’t for me right now,” declared T-Pain. “I feel like I’m the best to do it. I use it the best. When people try to compare me to other people using it, I don’t see the comparison.”

Still, he doesn’t see the need to hate on others. “They give Future crap for using Auto-Tune. And I see it all the time because it’s mostly fans of me that think I should be getting credit for it,” he explained. “I tell them, listen, everybody gets crap for everything. If you’re good at something, they’re gonna give you crap. If you’re bad at something, they’re gonna give you crap. So just let it be.”

Chicago newcomer Chance the Rapper recently tweeted that he wants to work with the Tallahassee hitmaker. So is T-Pain ready to accept his invitation?

“That’s happening. Chance the Rapper, I’m down with that,” he said. “He’s as weird as me. Me and him were both on episodes of ['The Eric André Show']. If anybody understands ‘Eric André,’ you’re a friend of mine. He did much more crazy shit on ‘Eric André’ than I did. I feel like that’s gonna happen.”

T-Pain Performs ‘Up Down,’ Sings Without Auto-Tune on ‘Arsenio’

T-Pain and Arsenio

T-Pain opened up about his unorthodox lifestyle during his appearance on Thursday’s “Arsenio.” The Tallahassee hitmaker wasn’t shy to admit that he and his wife of 11 years have an open marriage and bring others into their bedroom.

“We involve other people in our marriage sometimes,” he said. “Sometimes we have extraordinary partners and we like to travel around the world, go to different strip clubs. … It keeps it real nice and fun.”

During one of his strip club visits, he spent $12,000. “I picked most of it back up,” admitted T-Pain.

He also hit the stage to perform his newest hit “Up Down (Do This All Day),” for which he plans to drop a star-studded remix.

Plus, he showed his critics that he doesn’t need Auto-Tune to sing live, impressing the audience with an a cappella rendition of “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin’).”

T-Pain Eyes André 3000, Rihanna for ‘Up Down’ Remix

T-Pain has some big names lined up for his next T-Mix. While his single “Up Down (Do This All Day)” continues to burn up the airwaves, the Auto-Tune King has revealed the potential guest list for the remix and it includes André 3000 and Rihanna.

He has already had a phone call with the OutKast rapper. “It was amazing just talking to him ’cause that’s like my idol,” T-Pain told Rap-Up TV. “He really set my pace for music and just seeing that he does whatever he wants and don’t care what nobody say, how he dresses and stuff like that, that’s something that you can’t take away from an artist once they become a real artist.”

So he was naturally nervous when they finally spoke. “I was scared to talk to him,” he admitted. “I didn’t know what to do. I was texting him for a while because I felt like if I heard his voice I wouldn’t know what to say. But then I stopped being a pu**y and just fu**ing talked to him. It was a regular god damn conversation.”

He also hopes to grab Rihanna, who was recently seen twerking to the song backstage at her tour.

“I’m thinking about getting Rihanna on it, but if she don’t wanna f**k with it, then you know. Everybody else just seems really excited already,” he said.

While RiRi is not confirmed, B.o.B has already recorded a new verse, and other guests include 2 Chainz and Snoop Dogg. He previewed part of the remix on Instagram.

T-Pain has been warming up for his fifth album Stoicville: The Phoenix by dropping his single “Up Down (Do This All Day)” and remixes to Future’s “SH!T” and French Montana’s “Ain’t Worried Bout Nothin.”
