You better have rhythm
Justin Bieber took a lot of sh-t last week after he walked out of a radio interview and walked off stage in Oslo when he claims fans weren’t listening to him after he wiped water off the stage. His explanation for it all was that he’d been touring a lot and hadn’t been sleeping. Oh, yay. The fatigue excuse, my favourite.
Any students out there, working part-time or full-time jobs to pay tuition while studying your ass off – you want to take this one?
Any parents out there, working full-time and commuting for hours to and from work, while managing your homes and mortgages – you want to take this one?
Any single moms out there, working full-time and raising your kids on your own and worrying about whether or not you’re doing a good job – you want to take this one?
I get it. That being “on” all the time can be exhausting. At the same time, being “on” for thousands of people who ADORE YOU, that’s a certain energy too. And even if it’s not, there’s a private jet waiting to take you somewhere else. I’m sure a lot of you out there who “haven’t been sleeping” would feel a lot better about your lack of sleep if you were pulling in his millions.
But this is the kind of apology you have to accept from Justin if you are a Belieber. On top of that, you evidently have to have some rhythm. Because if you’re at his show and you’re not clapping to the beat, he will scold you. Check this out, at around 2:30.
So they’ve already showed up. They KNOW ALL THE WORDS. They’re clapping …but not on beat.
“At least clap on beat…”
He’s smiling and his face is kinda cute when he says it but these words, “at least clap on beat”, they cut you, don’t they?
The “at least” is so cutting. It’s so rude. It’s so f-cking entitled.
But you know what? Doesn’t matter what you think. Because we don’t know him. We don’t know his secret pain. And we can dump on him all we want, but it won’t matter. Because he will show you.
