Justin Bieber debuts his new PR bangs of innocence: are you buying it?

Justin Bieber

I love a good conspiracy theory as long as it doesn’t involve silly allegations of the Illuminati using puppets to take over the world. Here’s one for you in the form of Justin Bieber’s brand new bangs, which he debuted over the weekend all over Twitter. I sent this photo to Kaiser as an example of her famed “bangs trauma,” but she just laughed. Poor Bieber gets no respect. What do you think of these bangs? Honestly, they’re not bad considering the subject matter. In case you forgot (and how could you?), this is how Bieber has looked this year until now:

I have a little theory though. These new bangs aren’t just a means to an end of using less hair product. Nope. These are PR bangs. These bangs are meant to make you remember a time (not too long ago) when Bieber was a fresh-faced teenager with a floppy fringe. These bangs are meant to make you forget all about how Bieber has taken to abandoning his pet monkey, spitting in people’s faces and threatening to kill them, showing up hours late for concerts, and throwing tantrums in nightclubs. Not to mention those embarrassing Sizzurp party sessions after Bieber’s recent Grammy shutout. Is it working for you? Because Bieber would kindly like for you to wipe the slate clean just so that he can get back to helping people (it’s God’s will, yo).

Here’s Bieber in 2010 with his original bangs of innocence:

There might also be another ulterior motive for these bangs. According to a new story from Hollywood Life, Justin has been pushing really hard for Selena Gomez to take him back. This story is believable since just a few weeks ago, Justin tried to give Selena a puppy, and she turned Biebs and his gift away. Basically, “she has totally moved on from him” and told Bieber that there’s no hope for a reconciliation. I hope she stays strong. She could do so much better.

Just for kicks, here are some more “vintage” photos of Bieber rocking his bangs in 2010. Ahh, yes. The days when he bothered to pull up his pants. I miss those days!

    He was so much better in his early days. Sorry, Biebs, the bangs trick didn’t work. Mwahahaha!

  2. dorothy says:

    Still a narcissistic, entitled little punk.

  3. Brown says:

    I never thought there would be a day when I longed for the Justin Bieber of 2010…… but 2013 Justin Bieber has made it happen….

  4. Nev says:

    don’t be dissing Illuminati!!!!!

    nothing silly about it yo.

  5. Jenna says:

    I’m sorry, but the first thought that popped into my head when I saw that picture was: “What a little bitch”.

  6. Kimberly says:

    He wish it was so easy. Fail.

  7. Allie May says:

    He was once cute and likeable.

  8. logan says:

    They are starting to morph into each other.

  9. Mia 4S says:


    No seriously, why did he cut his hair like Rihanna?

  10. marie says:

    so, he was going for the Miley cut?

  11. Sloane Wyatt says:

    In the 2nd photo, Bieber is Vanilla Ice’s Mini Me!

    This pampered, self indulgent twit needs to take a summer off to do relief work with the poors or to do a LOT of volunteering. If he tried to grow up, maybe Biebs could still be a good person. For his sake, I hope he doesn’t spiral down further.

  12. janie says:

    Wow.. What a difference a couple of years make? He’s done a 360in such a short amount of time. I wish he’d leave his crotch alone?

  13. lucy2 says:

    That was my first thought – hey remember before everyone hated me? I can look like that again!

    He’s on the accelerated crash and burn path, and doesn’t seem likely to make any substantial changes.

  14. Poink517 says:

    I wonder what happened to the poor puppy?? He should NOT have used it as a gift – when will he learn that animals are not toys??

  15. Juliette says:

    I notice in the picture of him singing he’s wearing a leather jacket with “Man of Mayhem” on it, obviously an ode to SOA.

    What a loser, ya Justin you’re just like the bikers on SOA, more like one of the hookers they keep around.


  16. Eleonor says:

    In 2010 he used to look like Dexter lost little brother!

  17. Syko says:

    I want to slap him. That’s all.

  18. Emily says:

    He is such an embarrassing caricature… How does he not see it?

    He dresses like that trying to look all hard and gangsta and then sings such wussy, girly songs… it’s so sad!

    Is he trying to be Marky Mark? Because Marky Mark was a badass. This kid is a joke.

  19. Lexi says:

    He is still a whiny little punk, i really dont like him

  20. Style Spy says:

    LOL …

    “original man of mayhem” on his studded leather jacket

    Also, this jerk was 3 hours late for a friggin’ concert – ugh

  21. JessV says:

    Poor monkey. Whilst it had a chance to go to a special monkey home, with trees and proper care for this baby, Justin at the last moment decided he wants it back and filing the paperwork for it. Which could take months and meanwhile it has to stay in the German shelter where it just doesn’t get the required care.

    So cruel!

  22. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Can he get more girly?

  23. Veruca says:

    Nope. The bangs of innocence aren’t working for me.

    I’ve known too many drug addicts in my day. His eyes and skin are showing the effects of some serious sh*t.

    Is he ever going to go away???

  24. Frayed_Edges says:

    He looks even more like a lesbian now.

  25. elceibeno08 says:

    His bangs revival won’t bring back his innocent boy aura. Once you lose that nothing can recapture it. He should have thought of his reputation and career before he started to screw up left and right.

  26. EscapedConvent says:

    Oh my God—that first pic! Did they photoshop “scruff” onto his little face?

  27. Hautie says:

    That haircut still look better on Hillary Swank, as she picked up her Oscar for Boys Don’t Cry.

  28. KellyinSeattle says:

    I wish he would close his mouth , literally (arched brows, mouth always open…like Taylor Swift w/ her open mouth and deer in the headlights look).

  29. Tiffany says:

    Looking at the 2010 pictures remind me of Jimmy Fallon’s dead on impression of him…and when Bieber had a scene of humor.

  30. kim says:

    He looks like miley but with brown hair and d ck

  31. skuddles says:

    So instead of looking like a 14 year old (girl) he’s made himself look like an 11 year old (girl).

  32. april says:

    I totally agree with you that it’s a PR stunt. It’s all damage control.

  33. Justine says:

    Is there only one example where that big amount of fame so early in life ever has done anything good to the persons personality?

    I doubt it. Seems as if you need experience of backlash and fail to develop a decent personality.

  34. SamiHami says:

    Aw, I forgot that he used to be a cute little guy! Too bad he has turned into the egotistical little jerk that he is now.
