Day 28 - Justin Bieber
I’m sad that he made it onto this 30 day meme, although I guess it lets you read into other peoples’ reactions to him.
Look, I have no love for Justin, other than as a fellow human being. The only song of his that I’ve heard is “Oh, baby baby baby ooooooh, baby baby baby ooooooh, baby baby baby ooooh….” which any 4 year old could write (and other than that line, I couldn’t name any other word in the song).
That being said, I don’t know the kid, and while I know that he is getting love from a ton of pre-teens who also don’t know him, he is getting a lot of hate from people who probably couldn’t even quote the lyrics that I did. I’m not a fan, but I harbor him no ill will.
It’s just a bunch of bullies getting their rocks off by making fun of someone that they’ve never met, and know they never will. They’re jealous of the success that Justin has found. Look, if people are into his music, even if you think it’s dumb (assuming you’ve even heard it), good for him.
I have zero plans to go out and buy a Bieber CD. But why hate him because of that? I can just be indifferent to him and be happy with that.
I will admit, however, to laughing when he walked into a glass door, then a revolving door. One does not simply walk into more doors.
At the same time, I’ve done worse…so I laughed, but thought no less of him for it.
