Unplugged Acoustic, which arrives November 23rd, will feature acoustic renditions of tracks from My World and My World 2.0. "Taking it back to how we started," Bieber tweeted. It will also include a new song Bieber recorded recently in Hawaii, MTV reports.

Bieber's My World fragrance, which will come infused in wristbands (for girls) and dog tags (for the fellas), will come to Wal-Mart on the actual black Friday, November 26th, WWD writes.

Bieber edging into Kiss territory with his merchandising: There are also holiday plans for a nail polish line and Bieber dolls. Bieber's book First Step 2 Forever: My Story was released earlier this month, and already it ranks Number One on several Amazon book charts.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
