Justin, I know breakups are hard and that you’re under tremendous work pressure, but you need to stop acting out in frustration! There are too many people who depend on you and consider you a role model. It’s time to start behaving like the great guy we all know you can be and put an end to all this craziness!
Justin Bieber — I understand that it hasn’t been easy getting over your longtime girlfriend Selena Gomez. You’ve worked incredibly hard to try and win her back, but she’s hardly even taking your phone calls anymore. That must really hurt.
And it never feels good to see an ex thriving after he or she leaves you, so watching Selena revenge dress during her Spring Breakers promotion tour must really feel like she’s twisting the knife. Plus, you’re in the midst of a 124 date , almost year-long world tour and you’re probably exhausted already. No wonder you were having trouble breathing during one of your shows in London. Maybe you’re so stressed out, you were actually having an anxiety attack on stage. Hey, most of us would have an anxiety attack if we had to go around the world and perform 124 shows — talk about the jet lag alone!
Justin Bieber — Get A Grip!
So I understand why you’re feeling down, and that your public image is probably the last thing on your mind right now. But Justin — don’t let a bad breakup or stress take down your promising career! You need to get help and support and get a grip!
Recently it feels like we’ve been watching a new Justin — you’ve partied harder, you showed up to a concert late, and then a major misstep happened. On Mar. 8, after being released from the hospital, you got into an altercation with a photographer.
While being restrained by one of your bodyguards, you violently yelled, “I’ll f**cking beat the f**k out of you!” Justin! You know better than to let the paparazzi get under your skin. You’re a pro who’s been in the public eye for years and you know that paparazzi go with the territory. Why are you letting them get under your skin?
Justin Bieber: The Fans Don’t Want A Bad Boy
I’m afraid that it all adds up to a new bad boy image that may turn off some of your fans and their parents, who pay for concert tickets and CDs. The new you, Justin, who parties with models, curses at photographers, and dabbles with marijuana isn’t the handsome young role model your fans love to adore.
And don’t poo poo the influence of your fans’ parents. Think about it — why would they want their kids to look up to you after your latest incidents? You may be courting an older audience and that’s fine but as much as you’re attracting women in their 20s and 30s, your teenage fans are still your core It’s time to stop trying to be the bad boy and just be the appealing good guy who won millions over.
Justin Bieber: Take Some Cues From Another Justin
Justin — I know you’re growing up and I know you want to shed your teeny-bopper image, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it. Take a look at another Justin — Justin Timberlake — who transitioned from youthful boy band star to a full-fledged adult pop megastar. And a successful actor!
JT didn’t do it by mouthing off to the press and partying at all hours. He earned the respect of adults and convinced others that he was grown up by working extremely hard and letting his musical talent speak for itself. When Justin released Justified after splitting from ‘N Sync, he convinced people to accept that he was embarking on a more mature part of his career.
Justin Bieber: I Believe You Can Turn This Around!
That’s the only way to do it, Justin. Because no matter how “hard” you act and how sexy you look stage, no one will believe you’re a grown man until you actually start acting like one.
You need to stop pushing away the millions that love you with this outrageous behavior. Being a real man will potentially win Selena’s heart back too because what she’s looking for is maturity and NOT to be a mom to you. Instead, embrace and cultivate the huge audience you already have and let it grow as you do. At 19 years old, you shouldn’t be in any rush to look like you’re growing up by ‘misbehaving.’ That’s not cool, it’s just silly. It’s going to take time, and a ton of hard work to build a solid career as an adult. But you’re a super talented guy, Justin and you definitely you can do it.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree that Justin needs to start being the good guy again? Let me know!
