Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may be over, but that doesn’t mean they’re not better off for it! While Selena got a huge career boost (not to mention thousands of death threats from Biebs-obsessed fans) once her relationship with Justin went public, Justin is now getting tons of sympathy and is setting himself up as the next Taylor Swift! Don’t beliebe me? Check this out: Taylor has made her millions by singing about tiny incidents blown out of proportion. Take her new hit single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” The song makes it sound like she was being constantly hounded by this boyfriend, being begged for forgiveness, but from interviews we’ve learned that the song was inspired after talking to his friend who had heard a rumor that they were together. No begging, no calling, texting, emailing—just a second hand rumor spouted by some random guy! But she’s sold millions of digital downloads!
Now, Justin is feigning showing emotion and has turned to Justin Timberlake for support—this weekend he performed “Cry Me A River” for fans, and refused to comment on the break-up. If you’re not familiar with the song, it’s about Justin Timberlake’s split from Britney Spears, his first love. The lyrics go: “You told me you loved me, Why did you leave me, all alone, Now you tell me you need me, When you call me, on the phone, Girl I refuse, you must have me confused, With some other guy, Your bridges were burned, and now it’s your turn, To cry, cry me a river.”
Justin is transitioning his fame from faux gangsta, white Usher to melancholy boy, who obsesses over every minute detail and can’t move on with his life! Of course, Justin doesn’t write his own songs, but maybe this is the turning point! He can finish promo work for his newest album Believe and then set the pen to paper.
Of course, he shouldn’t expect any help from Taylor, as she is team Selena, and recently gushed about late night junk food parties with her bestie. Selena is only 20, I wonder if Taylor ever helps ease the pain by providing a glass of wine or shot of tequila? If walls could talk!
What do you think of the split? Does Justin need to get over himself, or is public mourning appropriate? Wait a minute – Justin exists largely as a social media avatar wooing his 30 million plus beliebing boobs with corny tweets that make sane people retch – of course he’s going to do the public mourning bit for all it’s worth.
