Justin Bieber’s such a hard core rock star he’s even had a beer! But he didn’t mention if he has had sex and nobody dared ask Selena Gomez. Does it make you look at him any differently now that he’s a man? Me neither. For some reason, I try to picture Bieber putting one back and all that comes to mind is that Time Magazine cover of the mom breastfeeding her four-year-old son. Gross.
But the baby-faced singer is in the new GQ magazine trying to convince naysayers like me that he’s no longer padding his jock. Because he’s like…older, you know, and like… way wiser, you know? So not only is he the boob chugging four-year-old in my head, he also has the voice of Alicia Silverstone in Clueless.
I digress. Bieber explains to GQ how he’s become jaded by the dog eat dog mentality of show business. “I mean, I keep my guard up a lot, because you know, you can’t trust anyone in this business. That’s what’s sad. You can’t trust anybody. I learned the hard way.”
I love how he says “in the business” like he’s freakin’ Clive Davis. But he learned a lesson so good for him. Who says young Hollywood can’t learn from their mistakes (*cough Lindsay Lohan, *cough Kim Kardashian)?
Bieber keeps it tight now. He’s like…guarded and like…stays in control.
“For me, it’s just like, I like to be in control of myself. I mean, I’ve had a beer, like, before…. But I never get out of control.”
Somewhere a 12-year-old Irish kid is laughing. But, whoa, one beer! Slow down there Sid Viscous.
This kid drives me crazy! I’m sorry. I know a lot of you out there are gangbusters for him but I don’t see it and I’m not immune to the charms of teenage heart throbs (call me sometime Josh Hutcherson). But it’s his attitude I can’t stand. It’s ripped right out of the pretentious, Justin Timberlake cocky handbook. His answers reek of smug omniscience.
And what really takes the cake is that he name drops Kim Kardashian and sticks up for her tomfoolery! “You guys are so mean bro…,” he said. “People say she doesn’t do anything; she actually does do stuff…. She works hard.“
Thanks a heap Bieber. If you say so, it must be true! I think my real problem is that this kid doesn’t get razzed. No one picks on him or vets him, rather grown-ass men who’ve been in “the business” for years fall over themselves to get him to acknowledge them. He seems nice, I guess. He seems well mannered, I guess. But I just…like…don’t like…like get it.
Are you totally annoyed? Please explain what it is about this kid. Please.
