I love reading about Justin Bieber. That’s right, Justin
Beaver Bieber. I don’t necessarily like his music. But, at the very same time, I don’t hate it either. I’m not in the business of dogging on a teenagers music. However, I am curious to see where Bieber fever goes from here.
I came home late yesterday evening to find that NBC is airing a two part special on Bieber. The first half aired last night. This is what NBC airs in primetime nowadays. And we wonder why they are getting slaughtered in the original programming category by the cable networks.
The cameras follow the Biebs around on one of his world tours. A novel concept, I know.
Needless to say, I watched it. During this hour special Bieber was jet-setting around Europe. Seeing a bunch of teenagers go nutty, Beatles-style, over Justin isn’t what intrigues me. Although it was interesting to see that places like Norway are just as loony as America.
What does interest me with Justin Bieber is the person behind the persona. I want to know what he is really like at this point in time. He’s a mega-star. As big as it gets. Is he a fucking asshole? Is he the nicest dude going? Specifically, I want to know if he will be the next child star tragedy. Drew Magary’s GQ piece is the closest I’ve come to getting that insight.
