Let’s discuss something I’m deeply passionate about; my feelings about Justin Bieber’s behavior lately.
To say I’m disappointed in him would be the understatement of the decade , but as a full-blooded Italian that doesn’t eat meatballs or tomatoes and is living with her parents until marriage, I also know what it’s like to be judged.
I’d like to take a moment to appeal to the same soft spot in your heart that Justin appealed to in mine 8 years ago when I found him on YouTube. A squeaky, talented little kid who was doing things like this in Canada:
Now for the past 2 or 3 years, I’ll admit he’s been doing some pretty hood rat shit. For the sake of this blog post, I’ve done some research on his shenanigans and arranged a timeline of unfortunate events.
March 2013: Justin tried to smuggle his pet monkey (who’s name is OG Mally btw) out of Munich and is forced to leave him there due to the fact that he didn’t have the necessary paperwork. Can’t we all remember a time when we were crushed by the loss of a pet?
April 2013: Biebs visits the Anne Frank House Museum in Amsterdam and allegedly wrote “Would have been a belieber” in the guestbook. I laughed Justin, but this is the kind of joke you just keep between friends!!
July 2013: A video was leaked of our Canadian Sensation peeing into a janitor’s bucket and cursing former President Clinton’s name.
This is depressing me as much as his current hair color so let’s fast forward to …
January 2014: Justin eggs his neighbor’s mansion.
That’s enough. You all have seen the rest on E!
I ask you this my friends: WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE GOTTEN INTO IF YOU WERE 18-21 YEARS OLD AND WORTH 200 MILLION DOLLARS?!
I feel like the majority of us egged a house or two (Not me Ma, I stuck to sticking road cones on my friends’ lawns because you raised me right) and would have attempted to smuggle a monkey into the country given the opportunity.
If we can’t still help but tap our fingers and sing along when Chris Brown releases a new single, it’s time to cut Justin some slack. Give him credit for his talent and some time. He’ll come around. Usher and I both belieb.
