If you wanted further proof of Justin Beiber’s superstardom (You don’t just have a baby with Kardashian genes unless you’re music industry royalty), he will now have a mockumentary of his own. Comedy trio The Lonely Island is releasing a new film, Popstar, on the making of a music sensation. And if the trailer is anything to go by, it will feature pretty much the who’s who of the music industry. We spotted Simon Cowell, Usher, DJ Khaled, Snoop Dogg and even Adam Levine (albeit in 3D hologram, while humping himself).

At the centre of all this would be Andy Samberg as Connor4Real, a popstar who has done practically nothing by himself. He has an army of assistants helping him with the most basic of tasks, including, an umbrella wrangler, a wolf trainer, a unicorn handler, a turtle sitter, an award holder and, of course, the official fall guy. Lonely Island member Samberg looks like he’s having the time of his life as the eponymous Popstar, while other members of the troika put in delightful deadpan remarks ("I want Connor to be everywhere, like oxygen or clinical depression").

Given the no punches pulled approach they’ve gone with for the trailer, one can assume the film would feature more. And that can only be a good thing. The trailer reveals absolutely nothing by means of the plot though, and one is left quite clueless about what happens to Connor and his merry band of drug addled groupies. Guess we’ll have to wait until the summer to find out.
