Dave Grohl let slip in a new Mercury interview that the major pop star he’s been referring to on Foo Fighters’ new album is a male, leading to speculation that it will be Justin Bieber or Justin Timberlake.

The secret superstar is “probably the biggest pop star in the world”, according to Grohl, and they contribute backing vocals on one of the songs.

While many people have speculated it is a female pop artist, with Lady Gaga, Adele and Taylor Swift thrown into the rumour mill, Grohl let slip in Sydney that the secret backing singer is a “he.” So perhaps it is Justin Timberlake or the other Justin, Bieber.

Courtney Love attended the debut of Saint Laurent’s men’s fall fashion line at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles last February with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. The pair met Justin Bieber, as seen below. Love described Bieber as ‘such a gentleman.’ Novoselic also praised the young pop star, tweeting: ‘Everybody loves Justin.’ Love also hung out with Lady Gaga backstage.

Justin Bieber’s stylist Karla Welch spoke to Esquire in November 2015 about Justin Bieber wearing a Nirvana t-shirt to the American Music Awards.

“It’s not the first time he’s worn a Nirvana tee. We just have a nice collection of vintage tees, and then the tee he wore yesterday was actually Jerry Lorenzo’s from Fear of God. Jerry takes vintage tees and re-cuts them.”

Welch continued: “Of course he’s a fan of Nirvana. I think it’s so funny that all these people are up in arms. I’m sure Kurt Cobain would be like – I mean I can’t speak for him, obviously – but I don’t think he was so snotty or that he would diss anyone who appreciated his music. I think he understood that that is like the antithesis of music appreciation.

“It’s so funny. But you know, fans are fans!” she added. “Whatever you want to say about being pop, but I don’t think Kurt Cobain gave two fucks, and I don’t think Justin Bieber does either. You know what I mean?”

Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love had a surprising reaction to Bieber’s shirt: she loved it. Love tweeted, “You’re cool in my book Justin Bieber.”
