Shirley Halperin, Music Editor For THR, On Interviewing Bieber

ShirleyHalperinShirley Halperin has interviewed plenty of artists throughout her career. As the sole music editor for The Hollywood Reporter, she’s gotten backstage access to some of the most famous people in the world. But it was Justin Bieber who proved especially hard to get a hold of. Halperin had already interviewed the Beebs in 2011 (she recalls when he was “just this sweet little kid”).

In the latest installment of Mediabistro’s So What Do You Do?, Halperin dishes on all things Bieber:

How did the interview come about?
This is a story I had been chasing for a long time, five or six months. [His PR team] finally gave us the opportunity, and I think a lot of that is a testament to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s really such a huge get. I did the interview with him in person, just before he left for South America, where all the craziness has happened. It was definitely a matter of convincing the Bieber camp that this would be a good forum for him, where he could not necessarily defend his actions, but defend his art.

Google and The Hollywood Reporter Align for White House Correspondents’ Weekend Party

Come White House Correspondents’ Association weekend, Google chairman Eric Schmidt and The Hollywood Reporter editorial director Janice Min are planning to party. They will co-host the invitation-only event on April 27.

The party is a first, and you can bet the stars will be there. It’ll take place on Friday, the night before the dinner.

Lin’s canned quote from a release: “The Google-Hollywood Reporter party will be a great celebration of the one event on the political calendar when people come together and politics are put aside. We’re thrilled to be a part of it.”
