Justin Bieber: ‘I’m 19 & it must be scary… to think that this is just the beginning’

Aw. Poor Justin Bieber. So tantrum-prone, so fussy, so hissy. So misunderstood! Justin knows that we’ve been talking trash about him so Justin unleashed his fury (AGAIN) on his Instagram with a lengthy message to his haters. I think this happened late Wednesday night – he posted a lengthy temper tantrum, then he deleted it, then he reposted it with some edits which we’ll get to in a moment. Here’s his original hissy fit:

“Everyone in my team has been telling me ‘keep the press happy,’ but I’m tired of all the countless lies in the press right now. Saying I’m going to rehab and how my family is disappointed in me. My family is beyond proud, and nothing’s been said by them. My grandparents wouldn’t know how to reach to press even of they did want to so that was a lie and rehab c’mon. If anyone believes I need rehab that’s their own stupidity LOL.”

“I’m 19 with 5 number one albums. 19 and I’ve seen the whole world. 19 and I’ve accomplished more than I could’ve ever dreamed of. I’m 19 and it must be scary to some people to think that this is just the beginning. I know my talent level and I know I got my head on straight. I know who I am and I know who I’m not. My message is to believe. My albums could be about anything, but my messages have been to never say never and believe. Not to believe in me, but to believe in yourself. I honestly don’t care if you don’t believe in me because I believe in me, and look where that’s gotten me so far.”

“I’m writing this with a smile on my face and love in my heart. Letting you know first hand how I feel rather than have these story linger. I’m a good person with a big heart. And don’t think I deserve all of this negative press. I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn’t stop here. i’m growing up finding myself while having people watch me and criticise me everyday i think im doing pretty damn good. And to those comparing me to Lindsey Lohan. Look at her 2012 tax statements.”

[Bieber’s original Instagram rant]

When he reposted the rant, he changed up the last few lines in which he had shaded Lindsay Lohan. He changed it to: “All this isn’t easy. I get angry sometimes. I’m human. I’m gonna make mistakes. I’m gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love you. Thanks.”

So… now you know. We aren’t making fun of Justin because we think he’s an entitled, immature, unprofessional d-bag who can’t handle the slightest bit of criticism without throwing some worldwide hissy fit about it. We’re making fun of him because we’re totally JELLUS of his amazing accomplishments at the age of 19. Of course. Here’s my question: when did Justin Bieber become WORSE THAN KANYE? Because when Kanye went on insane all-caps rants, they were often funny and wry and you could tell that even though Kanye is d-baggy, he has a sense of humor and some sense of self-awareness. Justin is like Taylor Swift at this point – completely incapable of dealing with the fact that not every single person thinks the sun shines out of their ass.

    Oh honey, it’s the beginning, all right…. of the end. Hopefully.

    • lucy2 says:

      My thoughts exactly!

      A lot accomplished by 19, sure – but it’s also pretty young to be having such a meltdown. And pretty old to be lifted like a baby into a car.

    • marie says:

      ha, fingers crossed..

    • brin says:

      Buh bye, Biebs.

    • Lucy says:

      Where the hell are his parents in all this?

    • LadyBird83 says:

      God please. Can’t wait till this little bitch baby is gone for good.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Well when you peak at 19, I can only imagine that by 20, you are beginning the downward slope. That’s depressing. No thanks, I’m good.

      • Lori says:

        People said/thought Shaun Cassidy peaked at 19, and maybe he did in terms of teenybopper fame, but he morphed into an incredible writer and producer. He’s truly a creative dude, even though the work he’s most famous for had nothing to do with being creative or smart. Unfortunately, SC is a huge exception to the rule.

    • Lori says:

      At least he “knows his talent level” and won’t be crushed when this all ends in a year or 3.

  2. Appleve says:

    He’s so young… N fool

    • Gwyneth says:

      Youth has it own rights. He will be fine. People need to stop be so negative about him.

    • Sherry says:

      I agree. He’s only 19. That’s really, really young. He is talented. He’s had an insane amount of money and fame at an incredibly young age. I have to agree with Jada Pinkett-Smith on this one. We all screwed up in our teen years to some degree. Someone like him is doing it in front of the entire world. Cut him some slack.

      Yes, he’s a douche. Most guys are at 19. I just hope he grows out of it by the time he’s 30 and still has some of his money by then.

      • Jordan says:

        @Sherry, the excuse you make for him is beyond ridiculous.

      • Sherry says:

        I’m not making an excuse, just stating that anyone who attains that kind of fame and money at the age he did is bound to end up douchey. I don’t think any of us have been uber famous, wealthy and idolized at the age of 15 (which I think was his age when fame hit) and then had to grow up in front of millions.

        It’s not an excuse, just observation.

  3. Pandora says:

    His Mom wrote that…….

  4. Lb says:

    I can’t get enough of that picture of his security guard carrying him. I hope you use it every time there’s a Bieber post.

    • Hope says:

      I know, right? Poor lil’ Beibs needs his bankie and boo-boo for his nap-nap! He gets fussy around two in the afternoon,so his bodyguard takes him to his room for sleepy time. Which works out well because then mommy can watch her soaps.

    • Amelia says:

      That picture will *never* get old!
      A decade from now, when he’s starring in some budget Lifetime flick trying to relaunch his career, I still want to see that picture next to him.
      Same goes for the top one “WHY DOESN’T EVWYBODY WUV ME, MAMA!!!”

      • PortlandJan says:

        See, Justin, it doesn’t pay to piss off the paparazzi. One photo is all the revenge they need.

    • I.want.shoes says:

      And that bodyguard is still hot!

    • Sherry says:

      That photo is epic! It makes me laugh every time I see it!

    • meh says:

      They’re so great. The one where he’s reaching out at the camera reminds me of the 5 mo old I nanny. She makes that face when she’s reaching up at me from the crib because she doesn’t want to go to bed.

  5. notforleo says:

    I do believe he is colicky. Quick!, someone swaddle that infant and burp the hell outta him.

  6. paranormalgirl says:

    Let’s see, Justin honey… by 19 I was out of an orphanage and at University studying for the first of several degrees. It was scary to think that was only the beginning of my life as a fully functioning adult, but there it was. No temper tantrums. No ego, no having to be carried around by my security. No wearing diaper pants. Just a young woman from Westport on the cusp of something wonderful. Nope. Not jealous.

    • The Original Mia says:

      All the praise to you! Well done!

    • Sherry says:

      ::::Virtual Standing Ovation::: Good for you!!!

      One thing I think of is Rob Lowe’s take on people who achieve fame. He said that he has a theory that whatever age you are when you achieve fame, you end up stunting your emotional growth and never grow beyond that point without a lot of work.

      Of course, we have people like Jodie Foster that sort blows that theory out of the water … but there are many more who prove it to be true (Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber).

    • gg says:

      Carried around is right. That pic of his security guy looks EXACTLY like a daddy putting his little pants-falling-off kid into his widdle carseat.

    • claire says:

      That was beautiful.

    • erika says:

      love it, yeah!!!

  7. kels says:

    Why is he posting these coked out rants on Instagram??? His PR team is either awful or about to get fired. justin no one gives a shit about how many 10 years olds bought ur album. I live in nyc and surrounded by drug use all the time. He is definintly doing drugs but who cares he is 19 why not. Just don’t fucking put these stupid “I’m blessed” rants. Be quiet and just smile for the cameras.

  8. Kaye says:

    The beginning of a Lohan-like slide to irrelevancy, for sure.

  9. DanaG says:

    Not so much the beginning but the end. Exactly what has he achieved? He has had a couple of hits written by others. I doubt anyone over 18 could name you 5 songs and we all know in 10 years time he will be touring the malls. He needs to chat to some other ex young pop stars who had everything at 19 and had lost it by 25!

    • booboocita says:

      So much this. He doesn’t write his own music, choreograph his own dances, design his costumes or shows … Indeed, all he’s “achieved” is some notoriety as a performer and entertainer. He’s not the second coming of Michael Jackson — he’s the first coming of Honey Boo Boo.

      And that lack of creativity is really going to bite him in the ass later in life. Whitney Houston’s estate was much smaller than expected because she neither wrote nor produced her own music, so she earned low royalties. Essentially, she made Clive Davis and Dolly Parton richer. Something of the sort is in store for Bieber, I suspect.

    • Eleonor says:

      I suppose he thinks to be in the Michael Jackson league,and he doesn’t write songs, or coreograph something. so a big bitch please is appropriate.

    • Iggles says:

      Ha! True. I certainly can’t! I struggle to come up with 2..

  10. Arock says:

    Everytime time I see his pics a little song in my head goes off, “vanilla lite, lite, baby”.
    The body guard picking him up to burp him/put him in his car seat is the best.

    • K-rock says:

      OMG you made me spit my coffee! haha burp him and put him in his car seat! Thank you!!! I needed that laugh this morning hehehe

    • Ellie66 says:

      Bahahahaha ! Now it’s going to be in my head all day ! :D

  11. Mia 4S says:

    Imagine how terrible it will be when he realizes he peaked at 18? 18! He will never be more successful or famous than he already was. Will an ongoing but smaller career be enough for him? I don’t know…Humility my boy, time to get some.

    PS That bottom photo is mandatory for all Beiber posts. It says so much.

  12. Devon says:

    My husband and I were talking last night about something Beiber related and he was like, “that kid needs to get a boot in his ass.” I laughed because he knows nothing of pop culture, other than what I tell him, and he could even see that from just a few photos of him.

    I think he needs a time-out.

  13. LD says:

    Who remembers him performing on SNL and his voice kept cracking? It was painful. He does these rants BC he knows he isn’t all that great and can prove otherwise. He started on YouTube and he will probably end there too with videos of him melting down.

  14. Skipper says:

    The line he removed was the only funny part.

  15. neelyo says:

    Looking at that photo all I can think of is another young man not long ago who thought his future was so bright he had to wear shades. That man’s name was Vanilla Ice.

  16. JL says:

    One day babyier will learn that money doesn’t last, character does.

    By the time he matures enough to figure that out MaCaulay Culkin will look like a huge success compared to Beibs.

    Look at Lilo’s bank account – OK she made 1.6 million, I made 130K. I consider myself more successful than Lilo and I certainly don’t have the drama or debt she has either.

    Biebs – bitch please.

  17. GoodCapon says:

    WOW he really believes his own hype doesn’t he?

  18. Faye says:

    He took out the best part of the rant! Had to admit I laughed at the little cattiness toward LiLo.

  19. Sam says:

    I like how he assumes that because he has sold a lot of albums, he has talent. He’s sold a lot of albums because his team has crafted a very careful image for him and played to young girls. There are people with actual talent who will never get a break.

  20. virginia5 says:

    somebody on buzzfeed points out what makes bieber’s rant stupid:

    So many things wrong with this rant.

    First he says he doesn’t care and that he knows who he is, yet he’s allowing stupid tabloid articles get to him.

    Then he implies that one cannot go to rehab if they have “5 number one albums”.

    Then he says he has accomplished everything he’s ever dreamed of and then says it’s just the beginning. How can it be “just the beginning” if you’ve already accomplished everything?

    Lastly he brings up Lindsay to deflect from his entire point. Hey, Biebs, look what has happened to Lindsay from the time she was 19 until now and take that as a warning of what’s to come.

    This CHILD needs to grow up and learn how to take responsibility for himself. All of the negative press he’s been getting lately has been because of HIS immature actions. Just buck up and admit you did wrong.

    • nannan says:

      i think people are taking this rant way too seriously.. stop analyzing and leave him alone. he’s not hurting anyone.

      • virginia5 says:

        dude maybe you should reread this post..this was not my response to biebers rant.

      • Skizzels says:

        You DO realize this is a post about him trying to attack a photographer…right? It’s not even the first time.

        We could go in to him doing 100 in the breakdown lane of a freeway or driving on sidewalks downtown, but why bother. It’s not like he’s hurting anyone.

    • littlestar says:

      @viginia5 – awesome :) . He really does have only to look at Lindsay from 19 on to see what his future holds (if he continues on the way he has been doing).

  21. nannan says:

    i love this kid! the pants suck, but he comes from a good family. he’s adjusting right now, but hopefully will come out okay. he does have talent. he just needs to keep off the twitter, or will become like leann.

  22. Cirque28 says:

    Oh Biebs, go do farmwork for a month and then come back and tell us how being a rich pop star involves working one’s ass off.

    Also, Leif Garrett called to say you will definitely continue to be extremely successful in the music business, no question about it, that’s how this thing works.

  23. dorothy says:

    The beginning for you perhaps, the end for us. Your on your way out bud….

  24. The Original Mia says:

    Have a seat young man. It’s obviously past your bedtime.

  25. poppy says:

    take him back canada!
    the only difference to him re: lindsay lohan is he makes more money?
    hear that whistling? that’s the air going in one ear and out the other.
    take him back canada and put him back in the first grade, where he belongs! (sorry first graders)

    • Fancyamazon says:

      Sorry, you can keep him now you’ve got him. Put him in the same storage unit with Celine and Pamela.

  26. Lulu says:

    It is scary to think. But not in the way he means it.

  27. elceibeno08 says:

    There you have it. He’s an entitled little twerp who thinks he is the 8th wonder of the modern world.

  28. Adrien says:

    I was surprised his meltdown came too early, less than 5 years since his breakthrough ‘Baby’. Michael Jackson’s career started at age 5 but he began to unravel in his thirties. He had a difficult childhood with an abusive father. Michael had actual talent (singing, dancing, songwriting). He had creative hand in all of his endeavors so no one can accuse him of being lazy and just a corporate product.

  29. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    We can only hope this leads to him doing something more drastic and serious (though not harmful to others) that causes him to get arrested and do actual jail time. I pay to see a pic of Biebs behind bars…in a jumpsuit that he can’t let hang below his knees.

    Poor Selena! She must be pretty embarrassed right about now.

    • Magpie says:

      I don’t feel sorry for Selena. I think that relationship was arranged and she profited from it and knew when to get out. She doesn’t look like she misses him at all.

  30. Anastasia says:

    Dear Justin,

    You are a managed product. A thing the entertainment industry has created, with your cooperation, for young girls to CONSUME. That’s it. Yes, you have made loads of money. But you are nothing more than a product. I’ve heard your voice without instrumental accompaniment or synthesizers/electronic fixing and it’s really nothing special or memorable.

    Thus you are a product. An image. A thing.

    And now you are careening out of control, and the public has watched this happen over and over, particularly with people who were quite young when they were turned into a managed product (see: Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan, and a host of men whose lives did not turn out well).

    Best of luck to you. When your fans are done with you, and the industry is done with you, you will be left alone suddenly to face the wreckage of your life. You’re correct when you predict is is only the beginning. Here’s hoping the end doesn’t involve an obituary and TMZ stories about “What Went Wrong?”

    The Public

  31. Magpie says:

    Biebs just needs to quit now and come back when he can grow some facial hair. The best he can aspire to is a Mario Loprez type career. If he wants any kind of career at all he needs to stop beliving his own hype and lower his expectations.

  32. Zvonk says:

    Security guy is hot.

  33. JC says:

    This silly little bitch.

  34. Asdfg says:

    I don’t believe he’s 19! Maybe 17 or 18!

  35. LeeLoo says:

    I wonder if he’ll remember this moment when he turns 25, celebrates his birthday alone and without any celebrity friends, gets popped for a DUI, his record sales have crashed and is forced to run the casino circuit in order to make ends meet.

    I seriously want to ask Justin how in the hell he thinks he will be able to make it as an adult performer or what sort of talent or mindset he thinks he has that will allow it. Justin Timberlake is the only person that was able to create some sort of career for himself outsider the teen idol phase and I would still argue that his career is shaky at best and only strong because of his ability to attach himself to Cameron Diaz when he did and then Jessica Biel at the height of her career. It’s only in the last 5 years we’ve all begun to realize JT is a dbag. At age 19, we already see Justin Bieber for the little ungrateful and uneducated little shit that he is. He has no chance.

    • sharylmj says:

      I think Justin Timberlake is very talented, UNLIKE Justin Beiber. He was smart enough to figure out that the boy band thing wouldn’t last forever, made a great solo music career, successful clothing line, restaurant. He probably should have stayed away from acting, but he’s super funny on Saturday night live… he deserves some credit for his success, IMO. I do absolutely agree with you on Justin Beiber

      • LeeLoo says:

        You’re right. I do have to give credit where credit is due. You are absolutely right about JT and all of his business endeavors, especially when you think about his roots. At the same time the way he’s treated the women he has been in relationships with is absolutely terrible. I still wouldn’t call him A-list though. He has the name recognition of A-list but he’s no Elton John.

  36. Listerino says:

    Please someone pull up his pants. Please.

  37. amanda says:

    No one cares if he is talented or not. How much money he has how Many hits,records broke no one remembers that. Everyone is rooting against you not because they are jealous in the least bit it is because he is so far from humble. So self centered, entitled and thinks of himself as some sort of God. People don’t say that they see you as the downfall of out society and someone who has ruined music because they are jealous they truly feel that way. As mean as it is and as sad as it is we are waiting and hoping he fails because just like lohan he has no respect for people that aren’t on your(in hos head) God like level and people don’t root for spoiled entitled a hole little pricks

  38. skuddles says:

    Biebs needs to stop smoking the delusion and start imbibing a little reality.

  39. KellyinSeattle says:

    I wonder if they put him in a car seat when they drive him around. :)

  40. Agnes says:

    Omg, I love that him of him being picked up and put in the car, like the fussy toddler that he is. Cracks me up every time.

  41. vvvoid says:

    Justin’s attitude alone suggests to me he could benefit hugely from working the 12 Steps a few times and attending lots of AA meetings, drugs or no drugs.

    He probably does have a big heart, and a good heart, but he is so far up his own ass and so lost in his own ego he doesn’t know how to be a person. He thinks he’s accomplished wonderful things, he lists only things he’s done for himself. He’s seen the world, had lots of hit albums, etc., etc., how about what you’ve done for others via your position and platform?
    This little missive sounds like major denial. He acts like people with problems don’t make hit records and tour the world…we sure as hell know that isn’t true.
    He’s young, I want him to escape the horrible curse bestowed upon seemingly all child stars, I wish I could talk to him and snap him out of this naivete. I wish someone could.

  42. Perla says:

    Bieber most likely mentioned Lindsay Lohan because of this site: http://bieberisthenewlohan.com/

    I much prefer Poor Michelle (made by the same people): http://www.poormichelle.com

  43. drdoolittling says:

    First time poster. I had to set up an account just t say that I think that picture of his (gorgeous, btw) bodyguard holding him like a temper-tantrum-prone toddler is quite possibly the best picture I have ever seen. I just made it my screensaver.

  44. justin says:

    19 going on 11.

  45. Lexi says:

    He is acting like a toddler, maybe this is the beginning of the end for him, poor baby bieber

  46. Jane says:

    World’s biggest P.I.T.A!

  47. Itsa Reallyme says:

    Justin, if you want people to take you seriously, PULL UP YOUR PANTS! It wasn’t a good look 20 years ago and it’s certainly a washed up look now. Wearing saggy pants does not make you cool. It makes you look like you’re too dumb to buy pants that are the right size.

  48. Carolyn says:

    thanks Celebitchy for finding the douchiest photos of Baby Bieber. Guaranteed to make a lot of us laugh. Every time.

    He’s delusional if he thinks he’s going to have a career for the rest of his life.

  49. Definitely consider that which you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I definitely get irked even as other folks think about concerns that they plainly do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

  50. Simple Red says:


    Well I’m not a fan of his but he is human and young. Yes, he comes off entitled, tantrum throwing but he is young..

    Plenty of young adults act out like he does the only difference might be their status…

  51. Str8Shooter says:

    This twerp is really self-delusional with his whole Messiah complex. Sickening, in fact.

    With all his bragging about his accomplishments, I guess the one he can leave off his list is getting in and out of his own child safety seat. I guess he needed the musclehead for that one.

    PUSSY if there ever was one!
