He looks great in this. So cute.
I will gladly do that for you Justin, you dont need to do it yourself.
Really though, I think he mostly succeeds with his different looks and fashion choices although I know some people find the choices a bit bizarre. I kinda liked that cyborg-meets-denim one that we briefly discussed a few pages back. If nothing else at least he's showing that guys can have a lot of fun with different looks and fashion as well and that not only the girls should be having all the fun at changing up their look and style so boldly.

So that's what it would look like to lay in bed with Justin Bieber.^ I've always wondered, thanks for the pic, Bieb.
he certainly has unique dress sense
It's impressive that the color of Justin's shoes match the color on the heart on his t-shirt and the bars on his cap. The guy is literally styled from head to toe. I think Justin wears what his high priced stylist recommends so I don't blame him for his unusual clothing choices. If anyone is to blame, it's the stylist
^ Here we go again with the "his clothes suck" comments. So predictable in this thread. I almost didn't post the pictures at all 'cause I knew they'd just get that reflex hate that almost every batch of paparazzi, out-in-public pictures of him get, clothing-wise. But hey, at least I could agree on the sentiment to get him totally out of those clothes (and stat!).
The thing about fashion is that it's not only so subjective as to taste, but some would argue if it stirs up any reaction, it's doing its job. Myself I don't find anything particularly wrong with the outfit; sure, you wouldn't be wearing it to a fine dining restaurant anytime soon, and it's too casual for a stage performance outfit, but for his persona and the kind of music genre he's operating in, I think it's completely in line with that for everyday wear and what you'd see others wearing who are part of that genre - and maybe even a little bolder, cause he can totally get away with it; 'cause, you know, it's The Biebs, and he's adorable by default anyway.
I don't like his outfit either. I think he looks ridiculous. He would look better with nothing on than he does wearing that stuff.
The Biebs is one of the secret (well, unknown to the contestants at the time ) celebrity mentors on the "The X-Factor" episodes airing this week (along with Nick Jonas, will.i.am and Marc "Skeletor" Anthony) on Wednesday and Thursday.
From last week's tease of it:
How can people be mentored by a dumb eighteen year old (he's really dumb, seriously). What a stupid show.
Well he has about $100 million in his bank account so he's got to be doing something right haha.
Most singers today are not exactly geniuses but they can judge singing qualities. Justin a very good singer if you listen to his acoustic performances, not his concert ones which use back up. I have heard him sing live with just a guitar and he was actually very good.
I have to admit that even though I think he's annoying as hell and I hated him with all my guts, lately I've been thinking he's getting kinda sexy which makes me feel like a huge pervert but oh well.
Well, he's growing up physically. I didn't like him at first at all, but now that he's growing up I'm really getting to like him 8)
Have you heard about the "10,000 hour" theory? Author Malcolm Gladwell has sort of re-popularized it, but it's been around before he did so. It proposes that if you spend 10,000 hours working on anything - that's, say, 3 hours a day over 10 years - that's the level at which you're an expert at it. If you take two comparable, say, athletes or classical violinists, it isn't that one of them might have oodles of talent about the other, it's the sheer amount of time put in practicing and honing the craft.
To bring this to your question, I'd say Justin's conservatively been doing this at least half his life (look up Youtube videos of him busking as a kid on theatre steps, his documentary covers it - and all his self-posted vids before he was famous), and realistically most of his entire life (said documentary also has footage of him at 2 or 3 displaying rhythmic talent that is kind of uncommon for that age, I'd say). Not saying he's some astounding musical prodigy, but factor in how long he's been doing this, I believe he's passed the 10,000 hour mark by now just musically - much less his life for years flying around the world performing, recording, press conference and other appearances, and adjusting to this fame, and all that stuff that adds up to lifestyle/celebrity he's experienced first-hand. Surely living that life has gotta be good for at least a few carefully observed tips to contestants for a few minutes at a time, no?
Even if you don't care for his voice or music (honestly, his music's not entirely my thing), I believe he is musical - the acoustic performances mentioned here show something, and I'm also thinking of a Youtube video where he's coaching a collaborator on how he had envisioned the part in his head going because the collaborator isn't quite realizing the part the same way, doing take after take - and even if you'd argue he isn't musical at all, then there are countless principles he can impart to singers - stage presence, handling nerves, handling being thrust into the spotlight, song interpretation, warming up, collaborating with other musicians, etc. There are textbooks on musical performance in practice and theory - I would think that in this case the "life smarts" experience might be effective to impart rather than handing contestants a book, the "book smarts" thing, and saying "go read it", no?
Someone else mentioned millions in the bank. To many (for good or bad), someone's earnings are a measure of success, so Justin's achieved that. What about name/face-recognition or social media standing? He's the only person with a perfect 100 Klout score, and arguably the most recognized 18-year-old on the planet today, so that's a measure of success.
Do I think a mentor in their 40s or 50s or even older (like an Aretha Franklin or something) will have more "life experience" to impart? Of course. But I think he's already lived a lot of his chosen profession in life so far and I think being that young and having lived it so intensely could lead to some very interesting comments and wisdom.
And hey, let's face it, it's a TV show. Ratings are key. He's going to be a big draw; lots will tune in to see what he's doing. And honestly, worst case scenario, if he indeed has absolutely no insight to impart and nothing to articulate, and all he can do is stand/sit around looking pretty as eye candy, that's fine with me.
he is looking hot on x factor....woooooooooooo...and i lvoe britney wooooooooooooo
I must admit that Justin took my breath away tonight during his brief appearance on X Factor last night. Ugh, his voice is so sexy and just his whole demeanor is changing into this indescribable thing. He was giving me Justin Timberlake circa 2002 vibes. Justin has the X Factor himself so he is a perfect choice for mentor lol
Anyone know any of the photos which have been leaked?
I was wondering if that photo would show up here. I KNEW that was the pic being talked about soon as the "Leaked" news hit. Hilarious that all these media outlets are being duped by a fake lookalike.
The whole "stolen" thing Justin Bieber is shopping around is a big prank. I live in Tacoma, WA and the news here has been very clear that nothing was stolen (cops have reviewed all footage from the room where the camera and the laptop were located) and no one in Justin's camp has filed a police report. http://shar.es/59cZ6
Rumors are that this is to promote his new video with Nicki Minaj. *rolls eyes*
it is true. it was all an publicity stunt for the new music video.
so here it is, shot like it was all recorded by himself.
but he is so FUCKING Hot, just look at his arms when he slides down the water slide.
MUST WATCH IN HD
The boy who cried wolf...
Is all I'll say about this moronic publicity stunt.
I think it was absolutely brilliant on his part; he's not the dummy some haters think he is. Furthermore, it was a way at getting back at the false stories about him in the media and internet as he indicated in his tweets today.
That's a hot GIF of him grinding, but would a little better if we could cut her out a little more haha.
I know I shouldn't care but I am curious to see if Bieber will get 10 million video views in 24 hours. One Direction pushed like crazy for their fans to watch their new video but still only managed 8.2 million views. The publicity stunt may help Bieber because it seems like many media outlets have picked up on this story and have linked to the new video. I guess we'll know soon.
Quite an original idea for the video I thought and he is looking hotter all the time
He was already on the top of my "I seriously don't get it" list in terms of how people find him desirable/attractive - but his recent "style" is so horrific and poorly fitting he's treading becoming actively unattractive.
