    Some teen idol. I've never even heard any of his stuff. He's not even a good looking kid, so I don't get it.

    I would say 8 people sent to the hospital over Justin Beiber is natural selection at work.

    In other news, thousands of fans were spared the irreversible brain damage that inevitably accompanies exposure to a full Justin Bieber concert. :D

    I've heard some people compare him to "being the next Michael Jackson"

    That's not exactly a compliment in my book. ;)

    I couldn't stand MJ (and it has nothing to do with the touching kids thing, I can't stand his music) but I can't deny his talent, and no one who uses auto tune as much as Justin Beaver does is going to be the next MJ.

    In fact, I don't think anyone, auto tune or not, is going to be the next MJ.

    Besides, once he hits puberty and his voice changes, he won't be so popular.

    All the more reason to stop him now.

    its just adolescent girls trying to fit in with their peers by liking the same boy.

    its like that with everything.

    its tough for a 13 year old to go to school and say hey..i love classical music..its amazing...

    its much easier to go to school and say you are into the newest Ke$ha joint or jason derula.

    im sure there have been countless of "studies" as to why we humans want to feel liked and popular at a young age.

    It's pack mentality, that's all.

    It sucked sooooo much. I was like lining up at The Rocks for hours to see him and it was a pretty chilly night and then all the girls that got there later started pushing from the back and I dropped my poster I made and then the police called it off and they didn't even say where he was and we didn't get to see him.

    Were those people 11 year old girls? I don't see how that kid has shown even a glimmer of the talent MJ had. In fact, his keepers have him rushing to make albums as fast as possible because they know once that voice cracks (he's 16, wtf?) it's all over.

    Yeah I know about that; my teacher in 5th grade had the nerve to call a parent-teacher conference to tell my mother that I was trying to different. :mad:

    I knew I'd seen his name before... He's going to be performing in the concert place next door to me. I saw his name on the marquis, and said well, with the other high quality talent they bring in, no big deal. The Backstreet Boys and roller derby are there too this summer.

    I'm thinking I need to be the hell out of the house for that one.

    I keep thinking that.
    I play TF2 on a server that has a public radio thing that accepts requests, some people keep (apparently jokingly?) requesting Justin Bieber. I don't use the servers radio but when his songs play a lot of people get rather annoyed and mass discussions ensue. I also hear about him on forums but I've got no clue as to what he is! Was he from the American version of X Factor or something? Or maybe the UK one? (I don't watch them so :p).

    Man I'm out of touch!
