Justin Bieber attends the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. Bieber performed a set including his hits “Where Are You Now?” and “What Do You Mean?” (he has a lot of questions at the moment) which culminated in a Peter Pan-like flight over the crowd and ended in tears. Literally.
We didn’t even recognize him. It wasn’t until Miley called him out in the audience that we realized the guy dressed for the Country Music Awards while sporting inexplicably K-Pop-style hair was Justin Bieber. We have to say, it’s not a good look for him. We’d expect to see this on a more effete Euro pop star (like, say, the members of One Direction) than we would on someone who’s worked so hard to convince everyone he’s a bad boy. But we suppose, what with the tears and all, that he’s moving away from bad boy and toward something more Emo in nature for his next persona.
The outfit is surprisingly low-key and wearable, all things considered. This is an artist so great, after all, that he can make himself cry with the beauty of his talent. We’d have figured on a more dramatic look than this one for such a sensitive soul.
