Coincidentally, the vomiting sounded better than the song.

Was there an echo or something in there? Were the acoustics messed up? Surprised he hasn't been driven to vomit before.

Good to see someone is staying on top of this whole "dance-based performances and also lots of others utilize backing tracks" conspiracy.

When the dude came up singing acapella on youtube, and is vomiting-sick attempting to keep a performance together, I think we can forget the good feelings we get from complainting about Justin Bieber.

You know, humans can't sing well when they're dancing all over a huge stage for over an hour. And good singing requires all available breath to maintain pitch and tone. So when an artist's fans derive most of their enjoyment from seeing a face and some cool dance moves, then the singing portion becomes less of the focus. Of which there is a limited supply, on account of artists being mortal beings.

So this video is an artist who has already directed all his energy at the portion of the show his audience cares about, and he is VOMITING.

I respect Jack White as an artist and musician. But he's not pushing himself to please his fans as much as that kid is. Soul-less pop music can still have a soul delivering it, and that's what this video demonstrates.


But seriously, all the complaints and jokes about Justin Bieber are still totally great and you're smarter and cooler whenever you shiat them onto the internet.

I don't know, I kinda got over hating on this kid when I found out he actually plays instruments and has some actual musical talent. Luckily my daughter is into hard rock and metal so I don't believe I have ever heard any of his songs or had to look at posters of him or hear anything about him other than here on Fark so that keeps me from getting sick of him I guess.

The kid sounds like a budding troll. He could be conning us all, with the horrible clothes and the sexy girlfriend (when we know he's totally gaaayyyy).

And I don't really care if a singer has a back-up track, as long as they're also singing live. If they're completely lip synching it, that's bad.

I don't see how he compares himself to Kurt Cobain at all. Cobain always struck me as someone who wanted to make music and wanted to be paid well to do it, but wasn't prepared for everything that went along with being famous, especially since he went from semi-obscure working musician to some propped up "voice of a generation" media construct within about a year. That could explain his apparent attempts at self-sabotage through drugs and Courtney Love.

Beiber is a youtube created pop star who has craved fame at every turn.

The best part about Ashlee Simpson's implosion was the previous performance. People were kind, almost complimentary. They noted that she put on a decent performance, and at least played the role of a pop star well.

Then all of that went out the window. Someone farked up, the band started playing, and Ashlee couldn't cope. She didn't take charge, she just started hopping around like an ignorant retard. And as she slinked off the stage, the camera focused on her backing band, doing their jobs, trying to hold back the grins as another manufactured pop star's career went bust.

Shortly after that, her career vanished.

With Bieber, it'll be different. Nobody wants another Ashlee Simpson. So these pop stars are built with an expiration date. Notice how we haven't heard anything from Justin a while? That's because he's between 'fresh' and 'momentary comeback before being forgotten forever.' If he didn't barf on stage, he would have been found in 2015 digging through garbage or referenced indirectly on TMZ.

Dude, she's not going to sleep with you.

Funny how this kind of thing KILLED Milli Vanilli...and yet Justin Bieber's fans dont' even give a rat's ass.


Well there is a slight but important difference between Milli Vanilli and Bieber and a large number of current pop stars. In the Milli Vanilli scandal the people portraying the group weren't the actual singers of any of their content, they were just the face of the group and did the dancing and lip synching. Supposedly the recorded tracks that current popstars have going during their concerts are recorded by the person you're seeing on stage.

Hey Biebs. Sing like that blue chick.

==========

Agreed.
However, I don't think the "artist" in many cases, sang the song in the studio the way that most people think they did.
Currently, many, if not most vocal performances in the studio that make it onto the final recording, are patchwork.

The song is recorded phrase by phrase, and each one requires multiple takes.
After which, the best take is chosen, and that phrase is doctored for pitch, sibilance etc.
So really, that singer never actually ever sang that song in it's entirety.
Not in the form that is released to the public anyway.

That technique has been used rampantly for years, and not only for singers, but the entire band.

Listen to Aerosmith's "Jamie got a Gun" very closely sometime, and you'll notice that much of the guitar work is copy and paste. As the song progresses, they will add another layer maybe, but all the choruses are the same EXACT guitar riff.

It's been done for quite some time. The solo in Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" is all patchwork, and it is quite obvious.

Edgar Winter's Iconic "Frankenstein" was patchwork.
It consisted of random bits that were good, but didn't really fit into any other part of the album, so they patched them together (cut and paste really did involve a razor blade in those days) , and called it "Frankenstein".

The band had to actually listen to it, and memorize it, in order to play it live, because they had never actually performed it.

Ever.

But the guys that were marketed as Milli Vanilli, never sang a single word of their Grammy award winning "hit".

When they tried to go on tour to prove that they could actually sing, it ended up sounding like that drunk guy at a birthday party that couldn't even pull off the song "Happy Birthday". 

One of them, committed suicide shortly afterward.

When the dude came up singing acapella on youtube, and is vomiting-sick attempting to keep a performance together, I think we can forget the good feelings we get from complainting about Justin Bieber.

You know, humans can't sing well when they're dancing all over a huge stage for over an hour. And good singing requires all available breath to maintain pitch and tone. So when an artist's fans derive most of their enjoyment from seeing a face and some cool dance moves, then the singing portion becomes less of the focus. Of which there is a limited supply, on account of artists being mortal beings.

So this video is an artist who has already directed all his energy at the portion of the show his audience cares about, and he is VOMITING.

I respect Jack White as an artist and musician. But he's not pushing himself to please his fans as much as that kid is. Soul-less pop music can still have a soul delivering it, and that's what this video demonstrates.

What happened to major record labels and creative freedom? Thats what I give a shiat about. Sure, kids can have their music. Adults should too.

That's their billboard chart history. Best song debut? #4. There's great music out there, but you won't find it listening to pop stations. Most of the stuff that debuts high is forgotten in the long run. It's actually interesting to see the history of very popular songs on the music charts. Hell, I don't think Bob Marley really even showed up on the thing, yet here we are.

I think most people over 16 do realize that it's done that way, but many don't know that virtually every recording in every genre is done this way to one degree or another. Classical has long been the most vocal opponent of the practice, yet the most ardent supporter when it comes to their own recordings. I know of classical recordings that were pieced together with over a THOUSAND edits on one album.

You do have artists throughout recorded history that can do a world-class version in one or two takes, but they're very much in the minority of all music, not just pop.

Even if Justin wasn't singing live, I still give him props for continuing on with the show, even after throwing up twice.

Jurassic 5 played at my college back in the day as an opening act for Busta Rhymes and Dropkick Murphys. I was surprised when the large guy that does tenor and the chorus was walking around the stage clapping with his mic, while he was supposed to be singing. I know all the pop groups did that sort of shiat, but seeing them doing so was funny.

Dickinson sounds TOTALLY better than he did in the 80's. His tone and breath control are MUCH better than they were back then. He puts in 2 hour shows, running around, changing costumes, etc. AND still nails all the vocals.

Justine and Bruce aren't even in the same BUILDING talent-wise. I feel dirty even having their names in the same sentence.

Luckily my daughter is into hard rock and metal so I don't believe I have ever heard any of his songs or had to look at posters of him or hear anything about him other than here on Fark so that keeps me from getting sick of him I guess.

Dude, people don't hate him just because of his music. People hate him because he's an inane, pretentious little douche:

"I only speak one language. The language of love."
"Haters are just confused admirers."
"Now that I'm on top, everyone wants to bring me down. Everyone's trying to tug at me and take my spot."

David Grohl: Justin, I jammed with Kurk Cobain, I knew Kurk Cobain, Kurk Cobain was a friend of mine. Justin, you're no Kurk Cobain.

Justin Bieber: That was really uncalled for, David.
