Justin Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin got engaged over the weekend.

The couple, who dated in 2016 before splitting, had stirred chatter among fans in recent weeks, appearing together and sparking speculation that they had .

As reports surfaced that Bieber, 24, had popped the question to the 21-year-old Baldwin during the trip, his father, Jeremy Bieber, set fans to wondering with his own social media post.

Bieber’s love life is a big deal for his fans, who have closely followed his on-again, off-again relationship with singer/actress Selena Gomez which reportedly fizzled most recently after they reunited in October 2017.

Baldwin was recently linked with singer Shawn Mendes after the pair attended the Met Gala in New York together in May.

In May, she told the UK’s The Times that she and Bieber, who both attend Hillsong Church in Los Angeles, had a tense time after their 2016 breakup.

We didn’t speak for quite some time and there was a lot of weirdness that went on, she said. “But it brought both of us to the realization that we just work much better as friends.

Watch Eminem’s sign-language interpreter matches his supersonic speed on stage, video goes viral

While it is common practice for musicians to also have ASLs to tune along with them on stage, Holly Maniatty's speed as she synchronised the sign-language along with the supersonic speed of Eminem's rap in the song has gone just as viral as his performance itself.

As if watching Eminem perform live at a concert is not a dream come true in itself, his American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter at the Firefly Music Festival that took place in the United States from June 14 to June 17, signed along to “Rap god” at a mesmerising speed — leaving many on the Internet impressed, and not surprisingly so.

coachella 2018 events

The Weeknd and Eminem are the main attractions at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival, now underway at Indio’s Empire Polo Club April 13-15 and again April 20-22.

Stacked with rappers, DJs and R&B singers, the bill for this year’s Coachella — widely regarded as the country’s most prestigious music festival — represents the culmination of a slow creep for the hugely lucrative event, which made its name  bringing bands like Tool, the Black Keys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers to a picturesque desert expanse about two hours east of Los Angeles.

In recent years the show has looked beyond those alternative-rock roots, pulling in Top 40-friendly acts such as Drake and Calvin Harris. But it always put one or two guitar-clutching types atop the bill: Jack White and AC/DC in 2015, for example, and the reunited Guns N’ Roses in 2016; last year, Radiohead headlined Coachella for the third time.

The latest incarnation of Coachella emerged from within the city of Indio Friday, like the Black Panther’s hidden land of Wakanda, but with a few technical difficulties.

The 19th annual music and arts festival is bigger than ever, with its largest tent, The Sahara expanded and transplanted west on the property of the Eldorado Polo Club, where it proved a surprisingly accommodating home for a 11-year-old yodeler, in addition to its usual lineup of electronic artists.

The next biggest tent, Mojave, is also enlarged and moved into the Sahara’s old space, and it was filled for a young Greta Van Fleet band that has obviously grown up on a steady diet of Led Zeppelin. Vocalist Josh Kiszka not only replicated Robert Plant’s voice, but he and the four-piece band donned ‘60s attire. Kiszka wore a headband and a vest without a shirt and his bandmates wore striped black-and-white pants and bright red bell-bottoms
