Justin Bieber has agreed to take a paternity test when he returns to the United States in two weeks, a representative for the teen pop star said on Monday. The 17-year-old singer is planning to sue Mariah Yeater, the 20-year-old woman who has filed a paternity suit against him claiming that he fathered her 3-month-old child.

Matthew Hiltzik, Bieber's representative, also said that the singer's team plans to "vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to protect Justin." In addition to Bieber's legal action, Yeater may find herself charged with statutory rape, as her alleged encounter with the singer happened when he was only 16.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
