Justin Bieber's three year reign coming to an end?
After three years of being the "It" boy. Do you think Bieber's reign is coming to an end? Oh well, he should be happy to retire with money in the banks. I wonder who the next "It" boy will be.
Oh, I sincerely hope so.
No one gives a shit about the little Canadian but eight year old girls and the press.
please, make it be true!
I cannot wait to see it poor and working at taco bell
Take us with you Justin!
He's more popular than ever.
He's a white trash dimwit who got impossibly lucky, and fortunately the masses are beginning to catch on.
I think he's awesome and love his positive music and videos - see latest vid "all around the world" in link below.
Recently read a quote from film director Jon Chu who worked with bieber on never say never that when he asked about hater Justin replied "they don't really hate me, they just hate the concept of me". That sounds pretty smart to me.
People called him "it" because they weren't sure of his gender, OP, not because he was central to the culture.
3 year reign of what? The 12 year old girls?
...although I do agree he's appears not so smart in terms of the "friends" he surrounds himself with. He told Teen Vogue he has only a few friends because he finds it hard to trust people and then goes on to say Lil Twist is his best friend.
He has his audience. I don't like his music at all but I don't feel the need to slag him off. I just avoid his fanbase like the plague. As a fan of Britney Spears, I know what it's like to get grief from people for liking a pop star who is solely created as a product for mass consumption.
One can only hope
Once his core fans hit their twenties and start to broaden their music tastes, Bieber will fade away like all teen pop sensations. Their little sisters will eventually find a pop performer they can call their own.
At least he doesn't have a Saturday morning cartoon or evening variety show like we had to endure in the '70s.
Justin Bieber is a living turd.
Nobody over 20 knows who he is unless they have teenaged girls.
Just show me some more pictures of his butt.
Like all teeny-bobby idols with a large but ultimately limited appeal, their popularity comes to an end. Bieber's end is coming--but not soon enough.
The difference with Bieber is that he may be around longer than his predecessors because he has made so goddamn much money. He can just keep on inseting himself into pop culture, the Internet, etc. even when his expiration date has passed.
Well seeing as the back street boys are doing well it seems some of the teen fans remain fans into adulthood.
I still hear his music on the radio and see his face all over gossip sites.
"I still hear his music on the radio and see his face all over gossip sites."
Only if you listen to Teen radio and read Teen gossip sites.....which is another entire discussion... about what makes up you R20.
He will become a nostalgia act, like BSBs, Rick Springfield and David Cassidy are to their fans.
Listen. I'm not going to argue whether he's an artist or not, nor will I discuss the merits of his music. He has a huge international fan base and has a TON of money. In ten years, he'll be laughing all the way to his job at McDonalds.
It's been only three years so far? Fuck me, to me it feels he's been around for, like, forever.
It's almost like the AbFab joke about Granny doing some multiple choice quiz about how long Margaret Thatcher was PM of the UK.
"I'm not going to argue whether he's an artist or not"
....and I am not going to argue whether Lassie was a famous TV fish or not.
It feels like he has been around for a decade.
So....very very sick of him.
I hope Bieber sticks around to torment the old DL hyperprissies for at least another few years. Then hopefully, another young looking caucasian teen male (who's not a wigger) will take his place on the world stage and cause even more angst for these worthless resentful turds.
Hope so. What is schocking is that news outlets report on his every move as if it is "real" news. It's a testatement to how fucked up our society is.

You should have included Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan in that list.
Teen beat syncers come and go and always have, but Justin Bieber is the worst of them by far.
He is like a combination of Kirk Cameron and Fonzi.
He didn't really have a "reign." His CDs don't sell like the boy band CDs, his label probably pays/exchanges favors for radio play, he's a joke and wasn't able to establish himself as a "serious artist."
I see a train wreck a comin'
He will come to Jesus and become a christian pop singer.
We are just not THAT lucky!
Its only been 3 years? Wow, seems like its gone on longer then that.
He's always had a built in expiration date but I didn't imagine he'd go out in such a blaze of stupidity. Should be fun to observe.
R27, I'm not convinced it's gay men who hate Bieber. Frankly, it is bizarre and unbecoming for gay men to hate on a teen idol when we can hate on so many others instead.
It's the same straight, jealous douchebags who hate Bieber w/ the same psychopathic, bordering-on-homophobic hatred that they displayed against the Hanson boys years back.
There's no way a beautiful young teen sensation can ever fade away. Unless youre suggesting teenage girls grow up and get over it, leaving him with no other option but to blow his entire fortune on drugs.
Nope. Will never happen. The Biebs will be relevant forever. Just like us.
Lol, very true r29.
I don't want to hijack this thread, but since I can't start one, and there is a loose connection to Bieber, here we go. Usher "discover" Bieber. The promos for next week's voice shows Usher blowing a gasket. What's that about?
Like Britney Spears who peaked in 2000 and then came roaring back. Bieber is too popular to just go away. He'll be in for the long term like Justin Timberlake or Janet Jackson (was).
You best believe it. I am gonna be the new "it boy." Wait and see, hatas!
Wait till FoxNews gets its pointy little teeth into this:
For the DUMMY at R41:
Janet Jackson is a legend and an icon. Pop stars, male and female, still reference her as an inspiration, mimick her style and dance moves and remake her songs. As for her record deals, she LEFT Virgin once the landmark $80 million record deal she signed in the '90s was complete. Also, she ASKED to be let out of her Def Jam contract, but not before giving them a #1 album. So, you see, no one fired her, nitwit. And you're right--she's always had a round bubble butt, and she was known for having one when Kim Kardashian was still just a kid running around in her mommy and daddy's backyard with a pacifier, and J-Lo was just a young, unknown Puerto Rican chica in the Bronx.
Janet will record when she's ready to record, sweetie. She does not need a label, but she could get signed to one whenever she's ready because she's JANET-ACADEMY-AWARD-NOMINATED-100-MILLION-RECORDS-SOLD-EVERY-TEEN-ACT-OF-TODAY-ON-HER-JOCK-FANS-ALL-OVER-THE-WORLD-$150-MILLION-WORTH-MTV-ICON-MORE-BILLBOARD-AWARDS-THAN-ANY-OTHER-ARTIST-SIGNER-OF-TWO-OF-THE-BIGGEST-RECORD-DEALS-IN-HISTORY-MOTHERFUCKING JACKSON.
Come on DL bitches basically he's a dead man walking his replacement is on tour with him in Europe -a little blond blue eyed soul twink!
I think that's all the time that he sold his soul for, so three years should be it. He should now unravel into drugs or have an accident or something so the devil can claim his due.
Or was it once he got old enough that Diddy didn't want to fuck him anymore... I can never remember...
I hope so!
R44. Is it true that Janet never really sang but was really lip synced to vocals laid by LaToya? I heard they did this because Janet couldn't carry a tune in a paper bag and LaToya was just too ugly to parade around. Basically, the took two average Jackson's to make one good one.
Couldn't he make that one prison movie first? You know the one, many of us have the script already.
He's done now.
You're more jealous than Natalie was when Tootsie stole her part.
I don't recall a pop artist being so uninspiring. I can't watch his flat-footed dancing and vocorder warbling more than a moments.
I think the booing audience at the Billboards were speaking for so many: get the hell off the stage, Poseur.
Sadly for us, he's got a good p.r. team and they'll be selling out his concerts for years to come. The little girls who grew up with him will remain his fans and flock to his concerts.
it's those pants!!!! How can this be a trend????!?!?
Not so much, #58. Adult responsibilities will set-in, the fans will become boring old married ladies.
His future audience will be the usual: aging gay men.
Why do all songbirds get aging gay men as their audience?
Because gay men insist on acting like 14-year-old girls FOREVER, r61.

That makes a lot of sense, but it's not reality. Right now, NKOTB is selling out their reunion tour to middle-age fraus that are traveling hundreds, in some cases thousands, of miles to stand in an audience and scream. Band members are making an extra fortune from all those silly fraus paying big bucks for meet and greets before and after the shows. Pathetic husbands are left with the kids while their wives turn back into fangurls.
Get some sleep, hon.
Taylor should have won the milestone award!
YES YES YES!!!
I didn't get the vociferous hate for this kid (why is he relevant to anyone above 12?) but he's turned out to be a mega douche to out douche even the other Justin.
The recent MC Hammer/Vanilla Ice look, monkey business, off on crap with Selena and "I'm 19!" and acknowledging Lindsay Lohan has put him over the edge into cuntdom reserved for only the cuntiest.
[quote]Pathetic husbands are left with the kids while their wives turn back into fangurls.
I'm sure she has had to watch the kids while the boring, old, fat husband gets his rocks off with NASACAR or some other sport.
For all of the glare and hype around this kid I forgot that he's only done two albums (seems like he's been around forever).
And the second one - acoustic - got only fair to middling reviews. Then he threw a bitch fit that he didnt get a grammy nomination. As if he was entitled to one simply because he put in the work and effort. What a doooosh.
The kid is becoming dangerously deluded and shut off from life. I could see him having a major breakdown very soon. But at least that might give him something real, relatable and human to craft an album around.

He looks very unhappy in most photos.
