It looks like Banksy is not a Belieber! The undercover street artist majorly dissed Justin after the pop star posted a picture of the new Banksy-inspired ink on his arm.
Justin Bieber loves his new body art — a carbon copy of Banksy‘s famous “Balloon Girl” graffiti. But it seems the anonymous street artist does not feel the same way. After the Biebs posted a picture of his new tattoo from March 12, Banksy was quick to respond and let fans know that he was not impressed by the singer’s new ink.
Banksy On Justin Bieber’s Tattoo — Street Artist Disses Biebs’ Ink
During a March 12 studio session, Justin took a little break and decided to get inked. The Believe singer shared a pic of his new body art — a tattoo of a little girl reaching for a red, heart-shaped balloon, which was inspired by one of Banky’s most well-known stencils.
Beliebers may have appreciated the new ink, but Banksy was not at all amused by the singer’s adoption of his work. A Facebook page claiming to be tied to Banksy responded by posting a pic of the singer with his new ink, tagging the Biebs, and captioning it simply: “Controversial.”
Though the anonymous artist did not have much to say about the picture, his fans did not hold back from dissing the singer. Banksy fan Tara Anderson said of Justin, “The balloon is slowly floating away just like his musical career,” reports the UK’s Daily Mail. Another Banksy fan was even more vocal, writing, “The fall of Banksy has just begun. SUE HIM PLEASE!”
Justin Bieber’s Deposition Videos Leak
Justin has recently come under fire for being rude and disrespectful in his Miami deposition videos. The international superstar even dissed his mentor Usher by not giving him credit for his part in the 20-year-old’s super successful career.
“I was detrimental to own my career,” Justin said, suggesting that Usher had nothing to do with his superstardom. Yikes!
What do you think, Hollywoodlifers? Do you think the Banksy should have dissed the Biebs? Let us know!
