That was probably the first time I saw a video of him, or the first time I spent more than 2 minutes thinking about him. Before the video, I only knew him as a new teen idol. I mean, I've heard the song "Baby", and I saw the numerous meme and what-not floating here and there on this beloved internet, mostly making fun of his hair and young boyish look, and calling him gay.
The thing about male teen idol is, most adult straight men will hate them, I don't know why. Just take a look at Justin, 1D, or Backstreet Boys, NSync, or ... every other boy band. They got trashed, dissed, and labelled gay, or "a girl" as if it was the worst thing you could be. Many would hastily judged them as "talentless" or "stupid". Why? Because only pre-teen and teen girls like them? Hhh... but well, that's a rant for another post. Now, I just want to talk about Justin Bieber.
In the video, you can see that young man was actually kinda nice. He's very sweet to the little girl, he's not smug, he didn't seem to mind her, and he seemed normal. He didn't seem so douchebag-y. So at that point, me and Justin were fine. I got why his fans love him.
Now, fast forward to 2013. The number of douchebaggery news about him is, well, disturbing. He abandoned his monkey, he spat on his neighbor, he pissed in a mop bucket and cursed Bill Clinton, he visited a brothel in Brazil. He also made his bodyguards carry him to China Great Wall and to Usher's birthday party. He's 20 years old, and yet, he still doesn't know how to properly put on pants. I mean look:
But I'm not here to talk about his inability to clothed himself properly. I'm here to talk about, what I think are the reasons for his dickhead moves nowadays.
Justin's first break out hapenned when he was just around what? 14? His mother had him when she was 18. So basically, he was raised by a kid, and his mother was what? 32 when he became successful? So yeah.
How do you think you would act if at the age of 14, you have more money than you can imagine, world famous, and girls are constantly shrieking at you? Now, add to that mix the fact that you are the butt of so many jokes, you have as much haters as you have fans, and people keep saying you look like a lesbian. And that you're gay, as if that's the worst thing ever.
I think Justin acts the way he acts because he thinks he really is all that, and he wants to prove to the haterz that he really is all that. And he is surrounded by enablers, who strengthen his belief on how he thinks he's awesomesauce. Or maybe, it's the drugs.
I'm no expert on the subject, but somehow, I just feel like talking about Justin Bieber. Someone should reach out to him and say "Dude, seriously, you're acting like a dick. Stop being a douche, you ass." Because I personally think, that's what he really needs. Someone close to him calling him out on his douchebaggery. Stop enabling him. And could someone please put him in a proper pants, so he can discover the magic of walking normally?
