You will think that I live in a bubble but today is the first time that I watched a video and heard a song by Justin Bieber. It seems that he is one of the most hated musicians in the world... at least that is what I can note at Youtube. My conclusion of this video is that he is talented and that his product is very well done.

Do you hate him? Why?

I don't hate him but I don't understand all the popular media attention he gets. Similarly for many other people like him...

Nah. Why hate him? He's reasonably talented and got lucky. There's lots of music in this world I can't stand, doesn't make me "hate" the person that makes it. Bieber makes a lot of people feel good. Whether you believe it's all canned and produced or not, at the end of the day it doesnt' really matter. I just like what I like and do my own thing. Spending time and energy hating is pointless.

No, I don't hate him or any other musician that produces music I don't like. It's not fair to hate anyone, really. If you put that energy out there in the world, then you should be prepared to expect the same to come back to you.

Do I dislike his music and the pop culture he's involved in ? Oh yes smile.gif

Same here. I don't hate they guy, but he's way too young to be singing about what he sings about. Plus, his voice just gets on my nerves!! I guess you would just have to like this style first.

Let's face it, we are simply the wrong audience for him and his styl of music. In my opinion he (or rather the producers behind him) are pretty clever and discovered the biggest market for any musician: teenage girls.

Ben, just imagine your success if The Reckoning played slightly other music and looked just slightly different than now...then again, you probably wouldn't be on this site and we would have never heard of Donuts...

He really is not very talented. I heard him sing unaccompanied on a radio show not so long ago and I was surprised at how below average he is.
He is well marketed and very lucky. I dont hate him but I have no time for him or his type of 'product'.

I can't really say I hate anyone. There are people I like and people I don't like. Hate is a strong word...
Bieber is just a boy who got successful and he should be respected for that. He's a product of a well-organized institution, not the first nor the last one!

What annoys me though are the comments about him ALL.OVER.THE.INTERNET. Positive or negative, it doesn't really matter - I don't listen to that music and I don't need to be shoved with it in the face every single day...

It's not his music I hate. It's his ego. BUT - if you got it, flaunt it right? So I can't fault him for that. I just don't like pride on display is all.

I actually like Justin Bieber because he has managed to get uptight musicians all bent out of shape. Its hilarious to watch grown men have their ego destroyed by a little boy that looks like a lesbian.

He's living every musicians dream: Arena tours, girls, money, girls, fast cars, girls, a big mansion, girls, vacations in exotic places, girls - and in between that exciting lifestyle, he actually manages to pick up girls.

All this is achieved because he successfully sells his character. As we've discussed in a previous thread, when it comes to selling your music, character is equally as important, if not even more important than the music itself.
