The young singer looked like he was taking style cues from his idol when he stepped out on stage!
While his glasses and pet snake were definitely all Justin Bieber at the 2011 VMAs, the red pants, chains, and black shirt were very Kanye West circa VMAs 2010!
Justin opted for a blazer just like Kanye, but added a little bit of Biebs to the look with his leopard sneakers. While this year Kanye opted for a chambray top and a denim-on-denim look (or a Canadian tuxedo), last year he turned up in red and black — did Biebs take notice? Justin admittedly looks up to Kanye, and it looks like he’s making that clear with his wardrobe choices.
The rapper definitely puts a lot of thought into his get-ups — and it looks like the Biebs may be following in his footsteps. Whether Justin was deliberately channeling Kanye or it’s merely just a coincidence, it still reminds me of when I was younger and I would try to wear clothes out of my sister’s closet.
