What’s up with Justin Bieber?


It’s tough loving Justin Bieber.

Between his January 23rd arrested for driving under the influence (which was later proven to an exaggeration by police), his friend being arrested for cocaine possession after police searched Bieber’s house, and now facing assault charges– 2014 has not been his year.

Being a self proclaimed fan, I’ve been asked a lot recently how I can still like the Canadian pop star. The answer is not as simple as saying he’s perfect and can do no wrong- it’s really deciding if enjoying his music is worth dealing with his what seems to be downward spiral.

Do I agree with what he’s done? No, absolutely not. I could never defend drunk driving, no matter who it is. It was stupid and I’m not going to justify it, or really anything he’s gotten in trouble for recently. No matter if you like him or not, I hope everyone is decent enough of a human being to agree that he needs help to stay out of the limelight for awhile and get back on track.

I feel bad for Bieber, I really, really do. Imagine being hated by half of the population of the United States. No matter how famous you are or how much money you have, it must be tough receiving endless hate from everyone and their mother. And maybe he’s not handling it in the best way, but hopefully it’s just a phase.

Either way, I still enjoy his music. He’s still working hard to produce music, and just released a music for his new single, Confident ft. Chance the Rapper.

So, c’mon JB, get it together!
