I'm not a big fan of today's pop music. I try to like it. I really do. I want to like it. But I just...I don't. Outside of the odd person, like P!nk for example, I find it difficult. I didn't get into the whole Gangnam Style, or Harlem Shake thing. I don't do novelty songs - okay yes, "Time Warp" from Rocky Horror Picture show is a cult exception. And maybe the odd Hokey Pokey (because it really IS what it's all about). But that's about my limit.
Then there's Justin Bieber.... I try to support Canadian acts. Even if I don't like them per se, I never got into "The Hip" aka The Tragically Hip, but I'd never slag on them. Of course lately Justin Bieber has been in the media with "growing pains". Lashing out at the British press while getting into a van - trying to look badass, showing up on stage 2 hours late etc, etc, etc. But this...this seriously dubs him as the King of the Fucktard Douchebags for me. I read this in a report this morning while I was cruising facebook-land.

Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne
Frank House, together with his friends and guards. Fans were waiting
outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the
museum. In our guestbook he wrote: "Truly inspiring to be able to come
here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
I'm sorry... what? Seriously?? You sir, are a fucking moron. Period. Full stop. When I first read this I thought to myself, surely they must be joking. He couldn't possibly have actually been that big of a complete moron to actually write something like that. Sadly, and unfortunately... I gave him too much credit. Optimistic girl that I am. He's an embarrassment in my opinion.
Maybe it's supposed to be a joke that I'm taking way too seriously. Then again...maybe he's not taking what she and her family went through; what everyone during the war went through; seriously enough. He needs to learn some respect.
Words to the wise to you Mr. Bieber - You have to give respect, to get respect there Junior. Until you figure that out, you won't last.
