The longer he’s in the public eye, the more we feel sorry for Justin. No, really.
Justin Bieber attends the premiere of “Justin Bieber’s Believe” at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California in a Balmain red blazer paired with Balmain biker jeans and Del Toro loafers.
He’s an overprivileged marginally talented brat, for sure. Obviously, we’re not defending any of that. But practically every time he opens his mouth to speak he reveals just how dumb and undereducated he is. We’re not being mean here. He’s actually painful to watch in a lot of interviews because he has no idea the level of his own ignorance. We’ve had to do a lot of thinking about the celebrity machine and lifecycle while writing and now promoting our book, and everything we know about explosive child fame combined with a lack of formal education tells us that this kid’s in for some rough times ahead. Sure, if he’s lucky and has smart people around him, he’ll be set into his old age financially, but he’s going to wake up one day and realize he’s completely bereft of life or interpersonal skills.
We know: boo-hoo. He can cry himself to sleep on his mink-lined bags of money. Or he can stop being such a little dick now. What can we say? Our hearts are full of love, darlings.
Anyway, the outfit. Answering the never-asked question, “What if Santa Claus was an asshole?” Still, it works for us. Yes it’s pure baby-douche, helped along generously by the shades, the posing, the perpetually affected raised-eyebrow expression (these kids are all gonna start botoxing before they’re 25 ), and the utterly ridiculous jewelry, but isn’t he just playing the part? It’s venue-appropriate, holiday-appropriate, and Justin-appropriate. It’s not high style but it gets the job done.
