That on its own could also mean your fans are ten.

Ten year olds need their own music too. Let 'em have it. Soon he'll go the way of David Cassidy, Bobby Goldsboro and The Funky Bunch

Subby, Raffi would like a word with you.

well, when they have a pop quiz in first period at the junior high, keeping the concert going past 9 may be a bit much

Oh, and he's now saying he was only 40 minutes late, calling all his fans and the venue itself liars.

Amateur. Axl Rose was slated to go on stage Friday @ 9PM. They are still waiting for him to be ready.

The median age at my shows varies quite a bit, probably in the 40's most of the time. Ages vary from 10 to 70, and I'd say almost all of them stay up past their bedtime.

The sad thing is, next year kids in every junior high school will be dressing like that.

Oh leave Justin alone.  I'm sure he had a perfectly good excuse for being late and all those crybabies probably got about the same amount of sleep they usually got, just got to see god live for a change.....

Looks like Vanillia Ice got a load in his drawers.

Well, if those pants pictured above come into style, at least old people will be able to wear their Depends in public without anyone knowing...

Justin will be the next Vanilla Ice in about 3 years.

Couldn't bieber just buy all ~13 of the official time keeping atomic clocks and set them all back 40 minutes so he was on time?
 
2013-03-05 10:17:27 AM  
Many years ago (20?) Went to a John Prine concert here in Richmond that went on forever, we were all up past our bedtime. Would have been better if we had been swigging a bottle of Jack Black like John was on stage but who knew?

I honestly believe one could not look more like a douche dressed like that than if you  consciouslywoke up and said "Today...I will dress like a douche".

I mean WTF - is that shiat even comfortable to wear?
 
2013-03-05 10:20:54 AM  
Not to jump on the Beiber hate wagon, but I have to side with the fans on this one.

There really is no excuse for charging people $100, and then show up so late that they don't even get their money's worth.  Especially those who had to leave of not have a train ride home.

That's just farked up.
 
2013-03-05 10:23:56 AM  
I wonder if Zeppelin ever had this problem?
 
2013-03-05 10:24:20 AM  
I hope his 15 minutes are up, not because I dislike him, but for his own well-being. He's verging into a Spears-type meltdown.

How much Bieber is $100 worth?

Lee451: Justin will be the next Vanilla Ice in about 3 years.


Ice had exactly 1 hit. Bieber's had every single album hit and stay at the #1 spot. He's had  more top 10 hits than Ice had top 100. I know you want them damn kids to stay off your lawn, but his career is not doing poorly by any measure, and barring some kind of baby eating incident or a bad decision like "hey how about an album of nothing but Lawrence Welk covers" it looks like he's got a good chance of staying up there.

He's poised to be more of a Madonna than a Vanilla ice. Each album has featured a bit of a self-reinvention, and each one has had its finger on the pulse of whatever was hot at the time.

Also, at one #1 album per year, at this point his fans are patterning to him, their brains are defining him as good music. In 30 years, they'll be bemoaning the state of pop that the kids these days listen to just like we do now, only their gold standard will be Bieber. And Katy Perry.

I'd like to join in the beiber-bash but didn't we just do this? I haven't had enough time to regenerate some give-a-fluck
 
2013-03-05 10:53:04 AM  
And Katy Perry.

So you're saying its not all bad then?
 
2013-03-05 11:05:12 AM  
He wears two watches and still can't get figure out the time....
But as Albert Einstein once said: a man with one watch always knows what time it is, but a man with two is never sure.

I'm sure they had legitimate reasons, like being drunk, being on drugs, being drunk and on drugs, being on drugs and drunk or raping women with fish (she was asking for it)

Mommy had
A little baby
There he is
Fast asleep
He's just
A little plaything
Why not
Wake him up?
Cute, cute
Little baby
Little pee pee
Little toes
Now he's
Coming to me
Crawl across
The kitchen floor

Baby, baby, please, let me hold him
I wanna make him stay up all night
Sister, sister, he's just a plaything
We wanna make him stay up all night, yeah, we do

Are you sure about that? Have you seen him lately? He looks very much like there is SOMETHING wrong with him.

Justin Bieber -- poor little rich girl fashion victim.

You know what he would look better in? The clothes of any of the other guys in those pictures.

Look at that last picture.

The first black guy is dressed like a white guy.

Bieber is dressed like a white girl dressed like a black guy.

The guy in the suit is dressed like a cross between a black guy and an Iranian.

The white bouncer (or whatever he is--bodyguard maybe) is dressed like a cross between a Mongoloid and a New York street bum.

Only the old black guy is dressed correctly. He is wearing a uniform, though, so it doesn't count.

I don't usually get my knickers in a knot over other people's taste or carelessness in dress because I am too lazy to care. But those hobble skirts that droopy trousers have evolved into have to go. The fashion has overstayed--it's dying of ridiculousness. OK to be ridiculous when you are fresh and new, not when you are old and tired.

Hey, kid trying to walk in a hobble skirt: YOU LOOK LIKE A TARD, NOT A THUG. Well, a chimpanzee at any rate. Seriously. You are wobbling like a chimpanzee when you walk.

And God it is funny when you run!

Please, if you have any amour propre, heed my advice. Do something else. Now, now, now, now, now.

It's not like I'm Mr. Blackwell, but stick a fork in your pants because they are charred blacker than the soul of a fashion-monger's lawyer.

I'm not sure what you do on Chat Roulette can be called a "show", but whatever.

When the label buys the majority of your albums to artificially pump up your sales, this feat loses meaning.

Phase 1. Spend money to record manufacture and promote albums
Phase 2. Spend money to buy those albums
Phase 3. ???
Phase 4. Profit

No he is no vanilla ice but  Madonna?  You are out of your mind.  That's like saying just because I am not a bum that means I am more like bill gates.

There have been tons of extremely successful artists/bands that are almost immediately forgotten once the next new thing comes along.  I would say an artist that plays to a niche market like beiber does he is definitely in the New Kids On The Block zone or thereabouts.

2013-03-05 10:07:13 PM  
I mean his current fans will outgrow him and he will become so obnoxious (or dated) that the next generation will not follow him. I don't think he will have staying power and music tastes/popular artists change about every 5 years.
On the other hand, I have never listened to one of his songs.


/Favorite band as a teen (1973-1980

/Favorite band as a teen (1973-1980) was QUEEN. How many bands from the 1970's have had that kind of staying power/popularity? Most are on reunion tours 'cause they need the money.
//Madonna (and many others) is more of an attention whore now than a musician
