I've truthfully never heard a song by Bieber (to my knowledge anyway) mostly cause all the music I listen to comes from my own Ipod or my Pandora radio stations (mostly Blues, Hard Rock, and Classic Rock stuff). Haven't really avoided it, just sort of worked out that way. I should probably listen to something by him but I'm afraid I may not like it..........or even worse, I may actually like it! tongue.gif

seriously though, I really have no opinion regarding him.

I don't feel so bad, I never heard of him until I seen them talk about him on the Cleveland Show. They made some jokes of him looking like a girl, but also that his music got stuck in people's heads so they enjoyed how catchy it was.

I'm pretty rough on music, I feel that everyone has their own taste in music. Some may like it some may not. But I dislike the music not the people, because they may be talented just not to my taste in styles. And Bieber is on that not my taste, but thats his music, because I can't judge a person I've never held a conversation with.

Let's face facts here, ever since they began selling Records there have been pre-manufactured Pop Stars aimed specifically at certain demographics. This was very prevalent through the 80's and 90's (especially in England with Stock, Aitkin and Waterman and in America with NKOTB et all!!) and are evn more evident these days. Record Companies are there to make money and this is just an example of a carefuly chosen product which has been very successfully marketed and produced!!

To be a bit more blunt I could quote Paul Simon from 'The Boy in the Bubble':-
"Every generation throws a hero up the Pop Chart!"

Just as Neil says above. It's his ten minutes of fame. He'll be last years thing pretty soon and in ten years time people will be saying, 'Justin who?'

60s had The Monkees, 70s had Bay City Rollers/Osmonds, 2000s had lots of Irish boy bands

Having said that... despite being the target demographic and despiteavidely reading various teen magazines my 12 year old daughter can't stand him. She's more in to 60's stuff (The Kinks, The Who, Small Faces and The Stones) and Reggae though.

He's got good management. And I'm sure he works hard, and probably isn't making that much money at the end of the day. I would think he is just getting perfomance royalties. Management, record company and writers will be getting most of the money made.

If he has any wits about him he will be learning as much as he can about his trade and music business as he can so he can evolve in his career. Stick around in the recording studio and not just sing his parts and go etc.

JT managed to become a credible artist after being in a boyband, where he has more control over his music rather than just being a record company's puppet.

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


I totally agree with Ben's approach on the matter smile.gif For me, he's just like a little baby boy, trying to cuddle up to gorgeous 25-30 year old women, for a bit of attention and God knows what else laugh.gif

Not at all. I would never willingly listen to his music, but I don't hate him. He's just a kid of a different generation, doing his job, and making a lot of money.

I actually just watched the video. I have a few observations and questions:

1. Is he old enough to drive?
2. He plays guitar better than Lil Wayne.
3. Do those little girls parents know they are dressed like that?!
4. Justin Beiber (or somebody on the video) has very good taste in automobiles.
5. He actually has a good voice, in my opinion.
6. After seeing those scantily clad girls, I am, more than ever, glad my wife and I have a son.
7. And now, I have that stupid song stuck in my head!!! laugh.gif

Did you know guys are most likely to sire daughters rather than boys...? Apparantly it's to do with the temperature of sperm or something.

Oh noo I don't believe that.. If that was true there would be more females than males, don't you think so?

Hate is such a strong word tongue.gif

Too be honest I don't pay much attention to all the Bieber hype. He's the "it" guy for the 5-15 yr old girls. When I was a kid it was New Kids on the Block and scores of others. Pop music needs to sell and who better to sell too then kids who's parents will spend copious amounts of cash to keep them happy. Beiber tickets, Beiber dolls, Beiber posters... etc. But hey good on him for making it whether ya like him or not he's doing what he loves and getting paid for it.

Oh and it's not just parents spending cash... this aunt(me smile.gif ) just paid $175 bucks so that her 6 yrs old niece can have back stage passes to see Mr. Beiber.... the response was a very loud and ear piercing squeal and a "best ever aunt" chant. So thanks Beibs... my niece thinks I'm cooler than the other side of the pillow thanks to you cool.gif

I also love this
