Justin Bieber stays petty, claims he doesn’t listen to The Weeknd’s ‘wack’ music


Here are some photos of Justin Bieber last Friday. He was in LA for Inauguration Day, not like that matters (he’s Canadian and probably doesn’t give a sh-t). Baby Biebz is trying to bring back his old-school Bieber haircut and… it’s not good. The hairstyle wasn’t that cute when he was younger, but people gave him a pass because he was just a kid. Now that he’s a man (??), he has no business doing this hairstyle.

Anyway, as we already know, Bieber has always kept tabs on his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. She keeps tabs on him too and it’s all very dramatic and stupid. Bieber’s people already let it slip to TMZ that Bieber thinks Selena is a thirsty opportunist who is merely “dating” The Weeknd to further her own career. Well, wouldn’t you know? TMZ chatted with Bieber on Friday and they asked him if he listens to The Weeknd’s music. Justin’s reply?

“Hell no, I can’t listen to a Weeknd song! That s–t’s wack.”

I’m sorry, what?????

No, really… what????

Many have said that the smartest thing Bieber ever did for his career was hook up with Diplo because “Where Are Ü Now” completely changed his career trajectory and how music professionals see him. If not for that, Bieber would be a 22-year-old has-been, not qualified to say anything about other people’s music. On the other side, The Weeknd has always had an adult fanbase because his breakthrough work in Trilogy was so sexual, and he actually had to tone it down for Beauty Behind the Madness. Personally, The Weeknd is just a better musical act overall – he is the opposite of “wack.” But I do hope Bieber stays petty.

    He looks older here suddenly (not old-old, just not like a tween anymore).

    That haircut does not work for him anymore.

    • Nancy says:

      Right. I didn’t even read the story, looked at the pic and thought he’s finally looking his age. That’s the haircut he started out with when he would flip his head to get the hair out of his eyes…..Ha! Remember watching him on Ellen doing that and making me dizzy!!

    • Crox says:

      I’d argue he also looks better. Before when he was trying to look cool, he just looked try-hard and awkward. This “next door neighbor’s grandchild” look suits him better.

      Is he about to change his music completely?

      As for pettiness – well of course.

    • doofus says:

      I had the same reaction. he actually looks like a man in these pics. an unfortunately-tressed, trying to look like an A&F model/college student man, but still…

    • Shambles says:

      See, I agree that he looks like a man. But for me, he has lost any semblance of being cute or attractive or anything along those lines. He was cute when he came on the scene (I was like 17 so it’s okay for me to say this) because he had a baby face and a baby voice. He looks like an adult now and the result is… underwhelming. He’s just completely average looking.

      • Andrea says:

        Agree. He looks completely average. Nothing wrong with that. He looks like an average, middle class college student. It’s a vast, vast improvement over his previous looks. As someone from Canada, he always gave off a trashy, small town, southern Ontario look – not good. Now he looks like he came from an affluent suburb of Toronto. This is a way better look.

    • almondmilk says:

      I agree he looked like a girl up until last year. Now he looks like an adult who may even be able to grow a few facial hairs.

      Bieber is the Canadian version of a young red state Trump voter. If his trashy Dad and his n-word jokes from several years ago didn’t wise you up to that fact, then his hypocritical religious fervor he sometimes flaunts like a lame youth minister from Indiana should be a neon sign pointing to that fact.

      His look and mannner of dress here seems strategic. Maybe the Trump win and racial hostilities/tensions have him a bit spooked. He needs to work his whiteness. That’s the vibe I’m getting.

      So all of a sudden he’s pulled up his baggy pants hanging below his ass, got his old hairdo back and is wearing specs. His clothes actually fit him and don’t appear to be cast offs from his former amateur jr. hip hop house mates.

      It wouldnt surprise me if like the revolting and lame kid rock before him, he abandons the urban flavor he launched his career with and tries to be more pop and maybe even country.

      He seems nothing if not an opportunist.

    I’m sorry, who? Is this Bieber person someone we should know?

  3. detritus says:

    His slang is about as current as my 67 year old dad. Although I guess dad has the edge because he graduate to ‘oh burn’ recently.

    • Isabellaluna says:

      I want to hug your dad. That’s awesome.

    • Embee says:

      I remember Whitney Houston saying “crack is wack.” It’s the only time I ever heard it as slang

    • detritus says:

      I’m pretty sure its from when my dad’s brother was a ‘Soul Brother’, aka a white dude into jazz/soul music. Looking back, I’m not sure if anyone told him he was that, or he just made his own moniker.

      They had some really strange slang because of that and the strong Jewish influence in the area though.

      And haha honestly, my dad is down for any and all hugs. You may rescind that when you find out he still uses ‘biter’ and that 90s NOT thing too.

    Someones driving the bitter bus today

  5. Suzie says:

    In the TMZ video he trows a piece of paper on the ground. Who still throws junk on the pavement? He seems so full of disdain. I like some of his songs but he’s truly unlikable as a person.

    • V4Real says:

      I actually liked some of the songs on Justin’s latest Album. (Why they still call them albums, I don’t know). But The Weeknd music is far from um, in Baby Bieber ‘s word, wack. Some might not like Weeknd’s lyrics but the man is talented and can sing. I love Starboy and was happy he worked with Daft Punk.

      I think someone is just a little peanut butter and jelly. Thanks Franco for that term.

      • Erinn says:

        I think you’re right.

        I liked some of Biebs new music too, and I refuse to be ashamed lol. If he keeps up with the current sound he’s doing, I could get behind it.

        I was trying to get a headphone jack working at the office the other day. I had two of my guy friends also investigating it with me, and they made me go to youtube to play a random video just to see if it was working. I clicked on starboy (which had recently grown on me) and they both were like “NOOOOO – what are you DOING!?”. They are not fans, apparently.

        I think it’s probably a heavy dose of peanut butter and jelly, mixed in with some ‘just not my taste’ when it comes to Biebs. I feel like he’d probably use the Selena stuff as validation for not really liking his music in the first place – like “SEE. I was RIGHT”.

    Eye. Roll.

    Is it bad of me to see that first picture as really creepy? Reminds me of the role that Robin Williams played on Law and Order – SVU. Creeped me out.

    • V4Real says:

      Oh darn, now that you’ve mentioned it; I can see it.

      • swak says:

        Sorry! It was the first thing that popped in my mind. Have been binging Criminal Minds and just watched the 2 episodes with Tim Curry. Both Robin and Tim Curry play such creepy “un subs”, yet that is not how you would ever picture either one of them.

  8. me says:

    All he needs is a back pack and he’d look like a college student in that last pic of him walking with his hands in his pockets. He has no right to say anything about The Weeknd. We all know where the talent is…plus they are both Canadian, he should be showing love. He’s just mad. If Justin hates opportunists, why does he hang with the Kardashians???

    • april says:

      Exactly–he looks collegiate. He looks almost identical to my 26-year-old nephew who works for Microsoft in Redmond, WA, both physically and in dress.

  9. Lucy says:

    Ah, always keepin’ it classy, this one. Abel would eat him in a bite if he wanted to, doubt he cares enough to try, though.

  10. Marianne says:

    He’s giving me like the Aaron Carter vibes. Not just in the sense of being a “pretty boy” pop star who no doubt thought he was so gangsta when he was younger. But because, he still cares so much for his ex. The ex he dated when he was a teen. Just like how Aaron not too long ago was talking about how he wants to get back with Hilary Duff and it was super embarrassing…that’s biebs.

  11. Katherine says:

    This drama is entertaining though

  12. Sarah says:

    The weekend writes the most despicable lyrics about women and people dont seem to care because its catchy…his music is wack justin is right

    • Jeesie says:

      Yep. If it’s not misogyny it’s just epically boring drug talk.

      Beiber’s obviously just got personal issues with him (and his track record isn’t any better), but let’s not pretend The Weekend is some brilliant artist just cause Bieber sucks.

      The mans a junkie, woman hating statuatory rapist who’s music sounds like MJ rejects.

  13. lemonbow says:

    He is more and more looking like a mini Tom Brady, no?!

  14. kimbers says:

    Can we acknowledge that Justin is getting his man face and his man shoulders will soon follow. Lil tike is grown up! =]

  15. emma says:

    Don’t like Biebs, but I do have to say that I don’t like Weeknd’s new song. Liked his past stuff. But boring subject– yeah you’re famous doing drugs with other famous ppl, on similar beat… mehhh
