Listen to Justin Bieber and similar artists - Play Now
For a period of time, being a 'Belieber' seemed to be the fashionable thing – at least for pre-teen/teen girls and perhaps their mommies. However, the role model status that Justin Bieber once possessed, even though he was elevated there by default, has waned considerably. In other words, The Beibz reputation has been tarnished to shreds. It is easier then to find reasons why being a Belieber is no position to be in. Here’s ten reasons, though there are almost certainly more!
#1 Bieber might attack… at any time!
Remember that one time, when Justin Bieber had to be held back before pouncing on the paparazzi? The same dude that once thanked both God and Jesus threatened the paparazzi, asserting "I'll f--king beat the f--k out of you!” Not exactly a great way to win over skeptical, ‘non-beliebers’, Justin. W.W.J.D. – what would Jesus do?
#2 He Can’t "Pump His Brakes"
The phrase "pump your brakes" usually isn’t taken literally, but given Bieber’s affinity for high speeds and fast cars he can afford but shouldn’t drive, Bieber needs to apply the breaks more as opposed to the gas. Doesn’t help with the publicity thing either… does a infamous Miami arrest come to mind?
#3 The Biebz has a sickening sense of entitlement
"Once upon a time," Justin Bieber stated the following to the world: "I'm 19 years old... I think I'm doing a pretty good job...and basically from my heart I really just wanna say it should really be about the music, it should be about the craft that I'm making...This is not a gimmick...I'm an artist and I should really be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of..."
We all threw up a little bit in our mouths when that happened… Sure, he was accepting a Milestone Award during the 2013 Billboard Awards, but what happened to being humble?
#4 JB’s crew is…questionable
Throughout the course of childhood, emphasis is placed on avoidance of peer pressure and the group of people we associate with. The dangers of guilt by association are instilled into teen’s heads in particular, given the heightened consequences of bad choices. Justin Bieber’s crew definitely seem a bit, umm, sketchy as of late.
