Lately Bieber fans have been taking sides on the big question that many of you all wonder: “has Justin Bieber changed?” We’ve heard of him being rude to people at meet and greets and when he runs into fans randomly, and everyone of course talks about how he doesn’t tweet as many personal things as he used to anymore.
On one hand, Justin has a certain right to be guarded. Everyone thinks fame is living the life, and that there’s no reason to ever be upset when you’re famous, but that’s not the case. If anything, fame makes you more vulnerable than you’d be originally. Do you guys realize that everyday Justin has fans literally chasing him, trying to kiss him, and asking questions that really aren’t their business? Wouldn’t you feel defensive too if one day guys just randomly came up to you and tried to kiss you when you gave them a hug or chased you down for a picture when you’re just trying to shop? There’s a certain amount of space needed to not suffocate from the exposure. You guys hear about his life on the radio, on Twitter, through his friends, and on TV. A person can only make themselves so vulnerable until it becomes unhealthy and the lifestyle is no longer fun. Look how many teen stars, and adult stars on top of it, have lost it all because they just couldn’t take it anymore? We’re not implying that Justin doesn’t love his job, his fans, or his lifestyle. We’re just saying that there are certain times where he just wants space to be a kid.
On the other hand, it isn’t right to be rude to fans, and we know you all have heard stories about that being the case. We know that you guys paid upwards of $300 for your soundcheck tickets and don’t appreciate short, curt answers from him. We know that some of you guys worked really hard to win meet and greet passes. And we know it sucks after all that effort to have a bad experience. That by no means is okay. We totally understand the “we pay all Justin’s bills and buy all his stuff by supporting him” mentality. We get that it’s frustrating when he’s rude, even through DMs to you guys.
To the people that doubt that Justin sends rude DMs though, you need to get out of La La Land, it’s corrupting your mind into mindless ignorance. We’ve seen DMs from fans that have emailed us that say mean things and sometimes even swear words. So don’t think Justin is perfect and does no wrong; it’s not true.
Complaining that Justin’s tweets aren’t personal enough are just ridiculous. First off, he tweets more than basically any other celebrity on Twitter, and second off, his tweets are personal sometimes. He tells you guys what he’s doing and who he’s hanging out with. Isn’t that enough? Because some of you guys seem to want him to tweet about him brushing his teeth and tying his shoes as if those are some special actions that only Justin Bieber can do.
If you’re really upset about Justin’s behavior don’t spread drama. It’s a choice to be a fan, not an obligation. If it hurts you that much, remove yourself from being that attached to him. He makes mistakes, whether they’re right or not. It’s your decision to make to choose whether or not you should be a fan of his, it’s not his job to convince you. So the pity tweets to him need to stop. He’s not going to tweet/DM you saying “I’m sorry I’m a jerk at meet and greets and get frustrated with fans easily. Please still be my fan.” So if that’s what you want, don’t get your hopes up.
Do you guys realize that if you were out enjoying summer this drama wouldn’t start? But instead you guys sit on Twitter, gossip, start fights with each other, and complain. How ridiculous is that? We didn’t even hear about this drama till this morning because guess what we were doing last night when this was happening? Enjoying our summer with friends. Get off Twitter and enjoy your friends, your family, and the warm weather, and stop stressing yourself out about a guy hundreds of miles away from you who’s doing just that and living his dream on top of it, and his swarms of fans. Live your life and just have fun. Twitter drama is just unnecessary stress in your life.
Justin is 16, he makes rash decisions that mess up his relationships with people, in this case his fans, just like we do everyday when we say something we don’t mean to someone we care about in the heat of the moment. His actions aren’t right, but they’re not a lethal crime either. Forgive him and accept that he’s a normal teenager who messes up or keep acting like he’s Mary, the Mother of Jesus who does no wrong, and choose not to forgive him over this. It’s up to you, but either way, save the drama for your mama.
