Defending JUstin Bieber

A rant for the Bieber haters.
I’m gonna go on a bit of a rant about all the hate Justin
gets.
Recently I’ve been really annoyed with Bieber haters. I’m a
Belieber and I sometimes feel guilty about not really
defending Justin when he gets hate. I sort of think “I know
who Justin is and that’s what’s important.”
But lately all the little comments people make about him
are really getting to me.
One of the most common and frankly most ridiculous
‘insults’ Justin gets is “he’s gay.” Justin is not gay. He’s
had girlfriends and doesn’t seem attracted to men. Even if
Justin was gay, so what? What’s wrong with being gay? If
you think there’s something wrong then you need to realize
everyone needs and deserves love no matter what their
gender preference is. If Justin was gay, what does that
matter? He isn’t famous for being straight; he’s famous for
being a musician. If he’s gay it doesn’t alter his talent.
That’s what you should care about, the music. Not if he
likes men or women.
People say he’s a jerk and he’s rude. Can I just picture
what life would be like if you were Justin Bieber? Imagine
not being able to go anywhere without cameras in your
face. Imagine having unnecessary comments made about
you, your friends, your family every day. Your every move
and every action picked at and constantly being put down
no matter how hard you try. You’re going to get annoyed;
you’re going to sometimes think the whole world is against
you and sometimes get confused who really cares and who
just wants attention. You’re going to make mistakes. You’re
going to treat people badly and not necessarily realize.
Everyone does it, with problems not as near big as
Justin’s.
Everyone’s rude at some time or another. Justin’s a human
and he’s going to make mistakes. He’s not perfect and
neither is anyone else in this world. You need to realize
he’s under so much pressure and he’s bound to crack
sometimes.
But can I just say, people who think Justin is a jerk, think
about Avalanna. Think about how much Justin cares about
his fans and how much times he takes for them. Think
about how much he does for his girlfriends. Think about
how he’s a shameless momma’s boy. Think about the best
friends he’s kept from Stratford, before all the fame and
money.
He makes mistakes, but he isn’t a jerk. He’s a normal 19
year old boy trying to do his best.
Haters always say “he sings like a girl.” I think you need to
go to school and get educated. Some people hit puberty
early. Some people hit puberty later on in their life. Who
cares?
I’d like to see you try and make millions singing. Justin
obviously has an extraordinary talent and millions of people
are in love with his voice. It’s broken now and he’s still
successful what does that prove? That it doesn’t matter
what pitch his voice is in, he’s still and incredible singer.
Obviously Justin isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and I’m not
forcing you to like him but just because you don’t like his
music it doesn’t give you a reason to hate him.
I personally don’t like Lady Gaga’s music but I don’t send
her hate. I don’t know her personally, I don’t know if she’s
a nice person or not. So I don’t really have a reason to
dislike her as an individual.
And back to the attention part of it, the tabloids up the
most stupid rumors I’ve heard. And if you believe
everything you read you’re stupid and small-minded. Think
of the source.
Do you think papers are going to print the truth? No
because the truth is, is that Justin hasn’t done half of the
stuff he’s been accused of and that doesn’t sell papers.
Lies and rumors sell papers because that’s what people like
to believe. Because they’re jealous.
How many 19 year olds do you know who are
internationally famous with millions of albums sold around
the world, donated thousands to charity, records set and
broken, millions of dedicated fans and too many awards
won to count. Most of the 19 year olds I know are
unemployed, living off their parents, smoking weed every
day, getting drunk every weekend, sleeping around and not
getting anywhere in life.
Justin has achieved more than any other 19 year old had
and you’re just jealous because you know you could never
be that successful. Also, some people say they don’t like
Justin because of his ’12 year old fans.’ First of all, we’re
not all 12 years old and that ‘insult’ is really old. Quite a lot
of his fans have grown up with him and are in their 20’s.
Justin’s audience ranges from little kids to adults in their
50’s. Just because a fraction of his fans are 12 year olds
doesn’t mean we all are. Not all of us are crazy. Not all of
us ‘cut for Bieber.’ Not all of threaten his girlfriends. So
don’t be so discriminating and think we’re all like that.
That was my rant and thanks for reading, I know it was
long. I just had enough of all the hate Justin gets when he
doesn’t deserve any of it. I love Justin and I’ll support him
through everything.
