Our straight talking Lancashire lass takes a sideways look at the daily news.
Justin Bieber slams his fans. What a brat!
Last week I launched the Belt for Bieber campaign, urging people to donate their spare pennies to help the pop phenomenon with the lesbian hair to pull his pants up. We also wanted Justin to stop Beliebing he is the Messiah and for him to cease pretending he is some sort of gangsta rapper.
But today I read with a heavy heart that the pop brat has paid no heed to our heartfelt advice, and has screwed his adoring fans over in a feat of breathtaking arrogance.
Bieber was set to perform to around 20,000 young fans and their parents at the O2 Arena in London. But he waited a cool two hours before descending onto the stage dressed as an Uber Angel. His performance, billed to start at 8.30pm didn’t begin until 10.23pm. Maybe he thought he’d act out the Second Coming? He always did have a God-complex.
Given that the average age of your average Justin Bieber fan is about 11 years, many had to cut their night short because it was a school night. It was probably too late for young Bieber too. Unfortunately many families missed their trains and had to wait for lifts or fork out for expensive taxis.
There was no apology when he finally did show up (still with his trousers hanging around his ankles), and he cut his set short by 30 minutes. Personally, I can think of better ways to spend £55 (the average cost of a Bieber concert ticket) but there you go.
Unlike most artists, Justin Bieber can credit his entire success 100% to his fan base. They were the ones who put him where he is today. They literally worship the ground he walks on. Inexplicable, but true. Remember the #Cut4Bieber Twitter trend? It started as a joke but then some fans actually started self-harming to stop Bieber smoking an alleged spliff. We’re talking unhealthy, bonkers levels of Bieber obsession – and these are the very people who keep the singer at the top of his game.
Beliebers – younger, innocent fans and crazy weirdos alike - have devoted their lives to their idol, the least he can do is turn up on time and give them the show they expect and deserve to see.
The little shit.
