Hm. Haven't noticed this Google/Twitter thing before.

He's better than Drake

Herpes is better than Drake! Way to set the bar!

i originally read 'famous' as 'fabulous'.
so did the wiki/allmusic thing, a few exclamation marks appeared over my head, after which i re-read the post and realised my mistake.
think i will wait for my kids to tell me what his records are like.

He's really famous/popular? I saw him in guest spots on two Nickelodeon shows -- iCarly and True Jackson VP (my 8-year old daughter watches both shows) -- and figured he was just an actor playing a country singer.

He was terrible, BTW. His voice seemed auto-tuned, and his songs seemed flat and hackneyed.

yeah but he looks like a cuet lesbian!

Daniel, Esq., Wednesday, 9 December 2009 16:45 (eleven years ago) link

I assume that sometimes labels just keep pressing until a act is popular. I'm open to be convinced otherwise with respect to this kid's talent, but wow, those few Justin Bieber songs I heard were, at best . . . servicable? Adequate? Unmemorable? Nondescript? Maybe worse.

are you a ten year old girl with cheesy parents?

Fox Force Five Punchline (sexyDancer), Wednesday, 9 December 2009 16:54 (eleven years ago) link

lol. Hardly. Actually, the reverse: I am a (hopefully not cheesy) parent watching the same shows as my 8-year old daughter.

So when an Atlanta-based hip-hop manager named Scooter Braun called nearly two years ago, Ms. Mallette was confused. “I prayed, ‘God, you don’t want this Jewish kid to be Justin’s man, do you?’ ” she recalled.

the first bieber single is actually pretty good bcuz it was written by terius, but maybe it's just my age but his whole 'popularity' wrt screaming girls & what not just feels very fake & through-the-motions to me. his singles aren't even massively popular in the US. dude's just a trending topic, idk

Queef Latina (J0rdan S.), Monday, 4 January 2010 18:42 (eleven years ago) link

He was on one of the network's New Years Eve shows and my Disney Channel watching nieces (age 10 and 13) know of him/kinda like him.

"one time" is pretty huge, jordan, idk. not saying he's worth a damn or will have another good song, but he's got a legit hit

“I have a swagger coach that helps me and teaches me different swaggerific things to do,” Bieber told the Toronto Star last month. “He has helped me with my style and just putting different pieces together and being able to layer and stuff like that.”

Or, as swagger coach Ryan Good, 24, told the Toronto paper: “Usher called me and said he thought Justin would benefit from being around a cool white boy.”

he just said it's not "massively popular," and he's right, it didn't even break into the top 10.

RIP

Death and Legacy

Bieber died following a gunshot wound sustained during a late night altercation in west Manhattan. According to local detectives, Bieber and his alleged girlfriend Selena Gomez attempted to enter a New York City nightclub with fake IDs but were recognized by several patrons. Witnesses claim Bieber was belligerent and threatened to shoot one of the bouncers. Justin subsequently reached into his coat pocket and withdrew what the NYPD has claimed to be a small .25 caliber pistol. James Rodriguez, an on duty police officer at the scene, responded by shooting Bieber once in the head. It was later determined that Beiber's handgun was errantly loaded with .22 caliber ammunition.

Paramedics arrived on scene shortly after the shooting but were unable to resuscitate Bieber, who was pronounced dead shortly before 11pm EST. The area surrounding Larry Flynt's Hustler Club on Manhattan's West 51st street has been closed off and witnesses are being questioned as the investigation into this tragic event continues. No statement has been released by Bieber's family or publicist, and no one else was injured during the altercation. Although toxicology reports have not yet been issued, several tablets of the prescription drug Dilauded were found on Gomez' person and it is speculated that both her and Bieber were intoxicated.

i think aaron carter was different because a. i was also 12 b. he was singing about playing basketball with shaquille o neal and having a "party" when his parents were out at dinner or whatever. beiber is like, "seducing" women in his videos. idk, blech.

total eclipse of the shart (J0rdan S.), Thursday, 7 January 2010 09:32 (eleven years ago) link

Yeah, 'one time' really only grosses me out because:
a) his 'invisible' braces are incredibly, ickily visible
b) he's 'seducing' girls
c) he looks like he's 12 rather than 15
d) he embodies everything that i find so compelling but also so disgusting about teenagers of today.

For what? He's not remotely in the vicinity of attractive. I mean, he's unsettling in that way you're disturbed when your 14/15 yr old sister gets her first boyfriend or something but...sort of harmless and ignorable until you're confronted with the music head-on.

too many of the good songs (the singles) are shoved toward the front of the album and even that section is poorly sequenced

hm maybe my expectations were unnecessarily high but the only keeper other than what was out before the album is "company" which i wouldn't be surprised to see as a radio single further down the line

the halsey collaboration threatens to be great for ~the length of its first verse but the brightness of the chorus doesn't contrast well

i'm sure the title track will make a touching closer to his live set, hopefully with the voice recording part scraped out lol

read something similar re "reading this it's too late" but doesn't make sense since the tracks are not released as singles, right? stating the obvious but album streams don't = single sales

I had stopped listening to him after “Yummy”, but “Peaches” sounds good at least. he’s bought all the r&b, rap and even afropop (Burna Boy on a so-so track) collabs money can buy, but I’m not sure I’m keen to indulge him and his “MLK Interlude”s.

it’s hard to keep up with the guy (if you would want to). I see that apart from a Deluxe version of the album he has now also dropped a new EP which has him channeling Wizkid of all people on the title track:

dyl, Monday, 5 April 2021 23:14 (one week ago) link

well it's easily the best single he's released since purpose... the other singles off this album are just totally dire, yummy was a pretty big hit despite being deathly corny, the quavo one i can barely remember how it goes. "peaches" is an up tempo summer song with a memorable chorus, i'm surprised it took them this long to find a song even this good

J0rdan S., Monday, 5 April 2021 23:27 (one week ago) link

"yummy" and the quavo song were from the last album not this one, which kinda underscores how indistinctive his music has been and still is in these past couple years
