Bieber at work
a genuis week for the arrogant, young, handsome dickhead.
he adds a hip star power to everything
whomp, there it is.
Fine on pop and EDM, hip hop and rock are no shows
We’ve waited all year
dinners, poolside cabana and a stage front table for Bieber’s concert on New Year Eve.
‘When a fandom is hurt, they will literally try anything to get the message across to their idol.’
There isn’t an EDM pop track he can’t approve.
I would high five his singing
If the summer was just beginning it would be the song of the summer
Next year at Governors Ball?
Some of the biggest disappointments of the year
Great art? No. Great pop art? Yeah.
It is bad for business
The indolence and arrogance sweepstakes
People around Justin are nervous about him and worry
“No, I don’t wanna do that.”
there was hope for them still
A young man displaying — and at many times directly explaining — his transformation
Bieber’s most popular song ever
“Obviously, it was pretty crazy what happened.”
Did anybody read Bob Lefsetz’s “Love Yourself” rave?
Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense
Lame? Cheesy? Call this performance what you want, but please don’t use the word homage
This will just reinforce the belief that people hired by Bieber are as dumb as he is, but I would say that these things happen, not a big deal, I would rather make a big deal of what is printed on the shirt.
the folks who make it are pampered assholes, who should be given a swift kick
My badass nephew Jeff McColl texted me to shamefully admit that he loved the new Bieber…
Wow, Bieber displaced Adele
‘College kids today are about 40 percent lower in empathy than their counterparts of 20 or 30 years ago, as measured by standard tests of this personality trait.’
I had lunch with my 13 year old Great niece and she wanted to go, and you know, how can I resist taking the next generation to a concert
Love Yourself” should be Bieber’s most popular song off the newbie.
Grade wise… three “A”s, one “A-” and one “B+” makes it my favorite chart in years
This song was so big it hit major when he wasn’t even looking, this is the one, that’s all.
Three of the top four songs, one of which may well be the best of his career, are from 21 year old Justin Bieber. Justin responded by acting like a spoiled little brat again
‘I just have to say… Justin Bieber in his Nirvana shirt probably has Kurt Cobain tossing in his grave’
Wow, Bieber not only has three of the top five singles, he has seventeen singles in the Hot 100… which beats out the record set by the Beatles and maintained by Drake by three songs.
Eight of these albums are new to the top ten, most of them are lousy, and two of them are guesses because the almost surreally incompetent Billboard, forgot to mention the two repeats
#1, 3 and 5? How did Justin become the Beatles and if he did , how did he do it with such flimsy material, and if he did in with such flimsy material how can he do it in the UK? And if he can do it in the UK how can he do it with One Direction releasing a new album that went straight to number one?
Bieber, who is back on top is touring behind what is certain to be a humongous album of epic proportions, the Donald Trump of tours. The last one, which I also went to,, was pretty huge but this has him back on Mount Everest and ready to prove it. I wonder if he will sing on a cherry picker again?
I’ve been streaming ELO, Alessia Cara and Chris Isaak on NPR, and I can’t say I’m overwhelmed, fair to middling but that’s it, so let’s look elsewhere. Some sidemen in big bands, Tame Impala and the Swan, have albums out, some boys for girls, One Direction head to head with Justin Bieber,as well. rapper Jeezy, Wreckless Eric… I think I’m going with the new Bieber
“Is it too late now to say sorry because I’m missing more than your body…” only not as bad as that makes it sound, a clever leg kicking conga, with Skrillex providing a really addictive track, you can’t count the hooks from the always apologetic former bad boy, though that one drum double time beat is the killer – B
It bothers me when I can’t hear a big hook, not when I don’t enjoy a big hook, that’s life. But when there is a humongous hook, Justin is in his fifth week at # 1 here, that I can’t here, that bothers me. I simply can’t hear the pleasure in his depressing and strange piece double time misery.
Another week of the bland leading the bland, though Iknow you thought “Alone No More” was EDM, but it is more singer songwriter than anything human. It is also the absolute pits
Justin back on top and of 10 songs, 9 are EDM, and one, “Fight Song” is so bad it should be illegal. The complete domination of the singles charts by dance is scary, it is ALL dubtstep and house and while I like both to a degree, who can take a steady diet?
Really, Justin Bieber’s first number one, with 375,000 downloads, also entered the charts at # 1. Though I can’t quite hear it, it is a soft focused romantic ballad -one Selena Gomez, he cried while singing it, though quite how many times you can whine about a break up, I don’t know. A huge success for Bieber, after three years of relentlessly bad publicity, two huge hits in a row. Who said there are no second acts?
The definition of homogenized. Remember 1978 when the UK and the US charts couldn’t have been more different? That isn’t happening any more. This is as characterless as any chart on the planet, it is the aural equivalent of the the global economy, bereft of individuals of any sort, it just sits there.
What Do You Mean – Justin Bieber – I never bought Bieber as the anti-Christ, just a garden variety teenage brat with a whole lotta power to wield his brattishness. But I never much cared for him musically either, so his post teens, post Diplo/Skrillex exercise in grown up EDM, this first single off his upcoming fourth album is an low key and pretty calypso flavored synth track that does the job. Good move – B
This is the art of the art, this is how hits are made in 2015 and whether you or I think it is real music, it is really real hit pop. In 2015, at least in theory, on stage the likes of Skrillex will improvise to a setlist and in the recording stufio nothing is ever left to chance.
