Justin Bieber wants to move back to Canada ‘full-time,’ thank you Canada!!

Justin Bieber enjoys a morning out with his fiancee Hailey Baldwin and friends

For years now, dirtlipped Canadian songbird Justin Bieber has resided in America. I don’t know why. He’s had multiple homes in LA, and I would assume that he has some kind of special celebrity visa or “permanent alien resident” status. I’ve always assumed that he maintained his Canadian citizenship throughout it all. And I was right? It seems like Ol’ Dirtlip is looking to make a permanent move back to Canada soon.

Justin Bieber is following his compass. After living in the States since his rise to fame in 2008, the singer is ready to pack his bags and head north to his birthplace. “He wants to make his full-time home in Canada,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “He needs to get out of the L.A., NYC scene.”

The constant attention and tremendous fame the 24-year-old has faced in the last decade has been “overwhelming for him,” explains the source. “He’s trying to climatize what a normal life should look like.” For now, that means getting away from the public eye. Adds the pal, “He feels most at peace at home.”

Joining him in the big move would be his fiancée, Hailey Baldwin. But wedding planning is still taking precedence. “They want to get married really soon,” a second insider says of the couple, who have been engaged for two months. Even a small roadblock such as the wedding venue they wanted being booked won’t stall them. “They didn’t hit pause,” the insider notes. They simply won’t settle for just anything. Adds the insider, “They want to make sure their day is perfect and exactly what they want….Justin is really in love with Hailey. He loves that she is super chill and down to do anything. Hailey has calmed Justin down a lot, and she has changed him as a man. He thinks she is his forever and considers her his best friend and soulmate.”

Wow, Canada will take Justin back AND they’ll take a nepotism model off our hands? Thank you, Canada. Who knew that all this time, all it would take for Justin to go back to Canada was a heavily drugged-out and drama-filled social scene in America. And do you think Hailey would really be that eager to move away from LA and her family? Well, it’s just Canada. It’s not like she’s moving to Bhutan. Also: if it meant getting the hell away from the orange fascist, would you marry Justin Bieber just to move to Canada? I would not. That’s a bridge too far.

Is anyone else reminded of the 2014 Olympics when the American and Canadian hockey teams made a bet that the losing country gets Bieber?

    The kid is not ageing well, party lifestyle is catching up also he should never ever grow facial hair its just gross on him.

    • Rebecca says:

      You are so right. Nothing attractive about him.

      • Wow says:

        Maybe he prefers to look sloppy than have millions of chicks slobbering over him…

      • Silent Star says:

        I think he’s doing a Johnny Deep and trying to look as unattractive as possible in reaction to his natural prettiness. Lots of pretty men do this, grow beards, etc.

    • Beth says:

      He was cute (not handsome or sexy) as a teenager, but now he’s sloppy dressed, scruffy and looks greasy and unbathed every day. Nothing attractive about him

    • Swack says:

      He is on the path McCauley Caulkin was on. Don’t believe Hailey will be happy in Canada because she will not get the publicity up there she gets here (IMO). Also, thought they weren’t in a hurry to get married and was waiting until next year.

      • hunter says:

        Agreed, and it took McCauley YEARS of relative obscurity to go through it and seemingly grow out of it. Hopefully the Biebs can find the same. Maybe he should reach out.

    • gmurphy says:

      OMG – stonewash is back!

    • Giddy says:

      He has always had a hard time getting facial hair to grow, so I vote for tattoos! Just like women can have eyebrow tattoos behind sparse eyebrow growth, I think he has had his dirtlip tattooed behind his three or four manly lip hairs.

    • jwoolman says:

      I did look at the pictures and think “It’s official. Justin Bieber is no longer cute.” Not necessarily a bad thing for him, though.

  2. Sunrise says:

    I’ll believe it when it happens. They don’t have to move to canada to get out of the spotlight and live a normal life, plenty of cities between LA and NY they could move to.

    • shocked and appalled says:

      Yeah but why would he move to a city outside NY or LA that has has no connection with rather than come back to the Toronto area, close to his family. By implication you seem to be suggesting that moving to Canada is a bad thing, and that many American cities are superior to any Canadian cities, Toronto is, in fact, a cooler, more interesting place than most American cities. Just saying.

      And don’t try to tell me how far away it is, or something like that. Less than an hour by plane to NY, Boston, DC, Chicago and a not very long drive to Detroit.

  3. Renee2 says:

    If this is true, i don’t think that she’ll like it here. She’ll miss running into other celebs, she’ll miss the pace of life, and the pap attention. If they do do this, it will speed up the demise of their relationship. Heck, I don’t even think that he will be able to adjust to it. I’m saying this as a Canadian who has lived in the U.S. and has recently returned home.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      He’d have to be truly something special to make up for the ordinariness of provincial Canadian life and …. he’s not truly something special. Then again, neither is she!

    • shocked and appalled says:

      There are a TON of celebrities in Toronto. Like, a lot. True that not to the extent of NYC and LA, but it’s hardly a backwater. Please. And “provincial” Canadian life? Wow, both of you are insanely snobbish and ridiculous. Toronto , for one, Is a major cultural centre… MAJOR. HELL of a lot more interesting and cosmopolitan than most of America (including Washington, DC). Back the eff off. (and BTW I have lived in NY, DC, Paris, Geneva, Johannesburg, on top of travelling all over the place, so I actually have something to compare it to).

  4. RBC says:

    Why is he dressed like a 70’s pron director in that first photo? He just needs a gold chain and a unlit cigar to prefect the look.

    • Carrie says:

      His father, I think. I drove through his hometown recently and on the outskirts, saw a young guy walking who looked exactly as Bieber does lately. His upbringing wasn’t great and his genes are worse.

  5. Erinn says:

    You know, it’d probably be good for him. And I’m fine with it, because you guys took the brunt of the ‘worst’ Bieber years.

    • Hollz says:

      Right? And it’s not like he’s coming to the Maritimes anyway

      • Erinn says:

        Exactly, we’re safe either way. :D

        Unfortunately… nobody I want to see actually visits the Maritimes either haha. Musicians seem to stop at Ontario or Quebec. I guess I had Rob “Sparkles” Pattinson for a couple weeks, but I didn’t actually manage to see him. I did almost walk into Willem Dafoe at the LC after I had to go retrieve my ID from the car. The best part of them filming “The Lighthouse” in town was that it was still fishing season… and there were boats going past the lighthouse constantly. I can’t remember if they had to shut down filming every time one went into view, or if they were going to attempt to edit them out.

      • Tigerlily says:

        And hopefully he’ll stay farfar away from the Prairies…..

  6. detritus says:

    He purchased two places near me and people are livid. It’s a small town with already rising housing prices, and he picked prime real estate on the lake for one, and it comes with a thoroughbred race track that he and Hailey will never use.

    • Sleanne says:

      Detritus, we must be neighbours! I live a few kms from his new place!

    • hunter says:

      Maybe he likes horses and wants a new hobby. Give the kid a chance, he’s only 24 and maybe he wants a pony.

    • Carrie says:

      If people are livid, it’s not Bieber’s fault. I live an hour from all of you. Housing is out of affordability range for nearly everyone nationwide. The property he bought would’ve sold for same price range to anyone.

      I don’t care for this guy very much either but to project hate onto him for economic realities here is unfair. He may attract tourism and jobs for all in the area. He may fund community projects. You’ve no idea what he’ll do. Wait, be welcoming and kind, and see how it turns out.

  7. Zip says:

    Canada is awesome. I’d move there, too!

    • jwoolman says:

      Yea, people are acting as though living in Canada is like being exiled to Siberia. They do have cities, you know.

      The two of them might find it a very good move if they really want to get away from the LA celebrity scene. It sounds as though they are in the mood for a change.

      • Carrie says:

        I’ve looked at his astrological natal chart again. This property is the perfect move for him. And the area will experience financial stability because of it. It looks good for all concerned …. I just don’t know about her but I’m hopeful for them.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Also, it’s far away from that stupid celebrity church they go to… Maybe, just maybe, he’s trying to get away from these leeches?

  8. LaraK says:

    Oh ffs, please keep him!
    Or even better, let’s pu a tariff on beibers!

  9. Andrea says:

    “I’ve always assumed that he maintained his Canadian citizenship throughout it all.“

    Regardless of where one lives, citizenship can never be revoked, it’s residence which he has lost. Non-resident Canadian Citizens are prevented from free health care. One has to apply and be back in the country 3 months at one address and they get free health care again.

    As a Canadian all I can say is it was destined to happen. Shug, whatever.

    • Tania says:

      It’s not “free healthcare”. You pay premiums and it’s based on your family’s income.

      • joanne says:

        no, we pay taxes. the healthcare is free at time of use. we do have higher taxes that are based on personal income. most of us are quite happy to pay the taxes while knowing we will never be bankrupted because of illness or accident.
        Justin should stay in the U.S. we really don’t need him back.

      • BooRadley says:

        It is completely free. If you don’t have health benefits paramedical services like massage and chiropractor Etc are not covered but just had my yearly physical no issues, work at a hospital, no issues. Healthcare is free in Canada.

      • Erinn says:

        It’s mainly funded through income tax and sales tax. Only some provinces use premiums for supplementing funding.

      • Jay says:

        Imagine trying to lecture a Canadian about a factual reality in their own country and insist it’s premiums and not taxes in general LOL

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Erinn is correct (of course she is!). It’s funded mostly through taxes. Canada has 10 provinces and 3 terroritories and they vary in how they administer the program.

        Think of it as like US Medicaid, which is a federal program that is administered by each of the 50 states differently.

        In Canada, access to health care is a federal mandate/right, but each province manages it a bit differently. As well, what’s covered varies — all the plans are comparable to the US provision of “major medical/surgical” (doctor visits, specialists, hospitalizations, surgery) but the supplemental services vary and to fill the gaps there are private and group plans.

        I’m Canadian. But I also don’t say it’s “free” because we do pay for it — mostly through taxes. But if you consider not opening your wallet at the point of delivery to be what makes it “free,” sure, right, then it seems “free” to you. But it isn’t – you just don’t see the direct exchange of money for services.

      • Tania says:

        It’s a misnomer to say health care in Canada is free. It isn’t. In British Columbia, we paid premiums. They cut the premiums in half recently with a newly elected government but health care is paid for by your taxes.

        I’m Canadian, grew up in Canada and moved to the US a couple of years ago. I used to work in healthcare in Canada. You get a “care card” that you paid for – either through premiums or through taxes – and the government reimburses the doctor for your visit.

        I keep promoting single payer here to my co-workers because there’s this big misunderstanding on the Canadian system and how much it costs taxpayers because it’s “free” and heaven knows this country doesn’t like handouts.

      • joanne says:

        Tania, as you said B.C. recently cut the premiums in half and will phase them out completely in the future. we are the only province left with premiums. the healthcare is “free” at the time of delivery. we’re all aware that we pay for it through our taxes. the point is that no one person is burdened or bankrupted by exorbitant medical costs.

      • Scotchy says:

        Actually each province is different. In BC we pay premiums if you make over a certain amount. Other provinces don’t follow this procedure and yes like Joanne said the new provincial gov’t is going to phase out the premiums.

      • Tania says:

        @Joanne, then say exactly that. That’s it free at “point of sale” so to speak and you’re not burdened with having to find a doctor in network or out of network. That you can visit virtually any hospital in your province – there’s out of province restrictions when you travel, etc. – and see any specialist with referrals, and that you don’t have to be out-of-pocket before it becomes free like we do here with co-pays. There are so many reasons the Canadian Healthcare system is better than what we have here in the States but saying, “it’s free” is not accurate.

        We need single payer, “medicare for all” here in the States. The entire first year I was living here it was without healthcare and it was a real stress.

        I have pretty good coverage now but trying to find a doctor in my network and trying to find a service that’s “cheap” is time consuming, and don’t get me started on urgent care and emergency care. We live a fairly comfortable life but I would hate to see the chips all fall if anything happened to either of us. We talk regularly about getting my husband his work visa in Canada so we can move.

      • Wow says:

        You also pay for ambulance rides in AB

        Yes we pay thru taxes but our healthcare is not as free as everyone thinks. Still better than privatized tho

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        The pillars of a health care system are defined as quality, cost and access. The big thing about the Canadian system (and all the other advanced-nation systems but for the United States) is the guarantee of access to all.

        The way the provinces then structure their systems to provide access to all helps to keep the costs under control. Each province basically has one big public insurance pool.

        Quality is relative, as far as I can see, to where you live – urban vs rural etc. And your particular doctor.

        The system isn’t perfect but it does guarantee access, which helps to reduce costs, which leaves more money to go into quality. It’s what the ACA has been doing since it was legislated into place. And people don’t desire Canadian health care for the sake of a bargain; they desire it so that they never need to fear going without insurance or going broke/bankrupt due to medical expenses.

      • jwoolman says:

        I bet you Canadians aren’t paying 20%, 25%, 30%, 35% and more of your income for your health care through taxes though. Those are real percentages I had to pay for premiums as I got further into my fifties. My deductible (had to pay that much myself before insurance started to pay) started at $1000 but kept rising until it was $5000. I had been paying extra for 100% coverage past the deductible, but when I finally actually needed it – I discovered that the insurance company was allowed to cherry pick what they wanted to pay and so I paid a lot more than the deductible. What a scam. I would have been better off putting the premiums in a savings account all those years.

        I finally had to drop health insurance when the percentage reached 53% of my income and wait for the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to kick in a few years later (I would be broke or more likely deeper in debt every year paying the premiums and still not be able to afford a doctor). And then I couldn’t use it unless I were dragged off in an ambulance (about $1000 for a ten minute ride to the hospital) – great policy on paper, but the insurance company had narrowed the network so much just for people on the ACA plan that I wouldn’t be covered affordably unless they deemed it a true emergency. The local hospital (serving 250,000 people in seven counties) and virtually all the local doctors were now otherwise out of network. I figured I would have to pay somebody for a full day to take me somewhere in-network at least 1-2 hours away (intercity buses left many years ago). Insurance companies did this in a lot of states. Some governors complained, but we were stuck with Mike Pence who thought it was fine.

        I also bet you aren’t having to borrow money to keep up insurance premiums when your income drops or you lose your job entirely. My brother had to go on Social Security early (meaning lower benefits forever) to avoid getting evicted when his hours were cut by his employer. He was too old to just go out and get another job.

    • joanne says:

      there are people in the Canadian system with serious illness who will need medical care worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. if they are low income, they pay less tax. others who pay high rates of tax make be lucky enough to be healthy and not require expensive care. we truly believe in sharing the burden so while it is not “free”, it is not going to limit access to medical care. there are some that will pay to receive care in private clinics. that relieves some strain on the public system. it’s not perfect by any definition, but i don’t know any Canadian who would change it. i never said it was free, only that it’s free at time of use.

      • Carrie says:

        This is in reply to The topic as a whole.

        Healthcare in Canada is a provincially administered service, funded in part by taxes. Hospitals, however, are private institutions and fundraising plus corporate donations help keep them afloat. Cutbacks are frequent, shortages in care are common, and incrementally costs are being passed onto citizens for all kinds of things.

        The Canada Health Act is federal but healthcare ( or Medicare as they’ve been calling it ) was “offloaded” to the provinces and territories years ago. Meaning, the feds or the national government keeps hands off healthcare matters mostly. Despite the federal act, the federal government does little more these days for healthcare than hand out money. That money is then abused and mismanaged by hospitals in the way of management using it for perks, inflated salaries, etc.

        Some (many?) Canadians are suffering in particular in the area of emergency wait times, some surgery wait times, restricting access to CT scans, MRI, etc unless you’re a unicorn, and an absolute dearth of basic mental health care. Successive governments wanting to put their own stamp on things have created a mess since the 1980s.

        Pharmaceutical manufacturers in Canada are also not required to respond to Healthcare Canada about supply shortages, medication availability, price controls etc.

        It’s increasingly a crapshoot for quality of care here. Unless you can afford or have additional private insurance you’ve paid for yourself, out of pocket.

        In any case, Bieber is rich. He has no worries about healthcare for those 3 months he’s not yet covered by OHIP. And when he is covered, he will be better served paying to get quality care.

    • joanne says:

      that is simply not true, Carrie. no one denies there are wait times for surgeries and the whole system could be better. wait times are not optimum but are expected with an aging population and the expansion of medical services. medical imaging is a growing area and is assessable to all.
      if you require urgent care and lifesaving services, they are incredible. my husband has a serious lung disease and is being evaluated for transplant. he could not receive better care. it is immediate for tests and services.
      service is not a crapshoot. most people deal with wait times. not all believe they are so important they should be dealt with immediately for routine matters.
      i’m not sure why you would be so negative. we have a good system, not perfect but good. no one will be turned away from treatment.

  10. Wellsie says:

    “He loves that she is super chill and down to do anything.” I hate this. I feel like what it means is “cool girls” should prioritize men’s interests (using term loosely) and not have anything of their own going on. When they break up it will be “they had busy lives and had to spend too much time apart”.

  11. Beth says:

    Bye, Biebs! I’d help pack his bags if he promises not move back here to the US

  12. TaniaOG says:

    Meh, I think if they settled outside of Toronto or Vancouver they’d be ok. Plenty to see and do. Frankly, I’m surprised more Americans aren’t heading over the border. A beautiful country that prides itself on diversity, not lead by an INSANE clown and virtually no “horrifyingly racist” people? That behavior is not ok over here. Every day I am more and more grateful to be Canadian and every day I hope this nightmare will soon be over for my wonderful American celebitches.

    • Renee2 says:

      Hi,

      I’m not trying to be antagonistic but if there weren’t horrifyingly racist people here there would have been no need for the Truth and Reconciliation commission. Now, it might not be as bad as the States, cuz we don’t have as many people or guns, but as a Black woman I can assure you that I experienced the same levels of racism in both countries.

    • joanne says:

      i do thinks our 1st Nations people would disagree about no horrifying racist people. there are just as many in Canada but it’s not socially acceptable. the larger cities have real problems with racial profiling. the Prairies have had several big trials that were about racial problems. we have problems, just not as overt.

    • Purrrr says:

      He bought a house outside of Cambridge

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Racism has always been integral to Canadian colonial and post-colonial life, and it’s being allowed to resurface by the current Conservative party and elected leaders like Doug Ford of Ontario. I hope we reject it, but already Steve Bannon’s been invited up for “debate” at a prestigious institute in Toronto. I hope they reconsider and he’s shunned.

      • mazzie says:

        Munk is populated by white guys so no, Bannon probably won’t be cancelled.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Ugh. They probably think they’re too clever by half and they’ll be the ones to ‘expose’ him. Instead they’re validating him.

    • Himmiefan says:

      LOL! I wonder why Canada’s not building a wall to keep us out after electing the Traitor in Chief.

  13. Mia4s says:

    No take backs America! We were clear about this! 😉

    I assume we would have heard if he had taken out American citizenship (dual Canadian/American citizenship is not uncommon) so sadly he’s still fully our problem. Sigh….

  14. Alexandria says:

    I’m not a fan. But he looks like he needs to do this and spend some time doing normal and stable things. Good mental health is good for everyone. As much as he is abhorrent sometimes, I don’t wish for a breakdown for anyone.

    • Carrie says:

      I agree. This could be the thing that saves him. I think it’s less about blaming USA and more about him needing to feel connected and home. His home is within the area he bought a house. It’s memories of a simpler time, calmer pace. There are loads of places in the world and within USA with the same vibe, but they’re not home to him.

  15. Gutterflower says:

    No. Nonononono. NO! We are perfectly content without that douchenozzle. You don’t get to keep the good ones and kick the shittastic ones backover to us!

  16. Socks says:

    I thought they weren’t rushing to get married? Why am I following this?🤦🏽‍♀️
    Also, LoL at “she’s super chill and down to do anything.”

  17. Purrrr says:

    His new house is down the street from my inlaws. This is going to be great

  18. Stef says:

    Ahaha, this made me laugh out loud, thanks Kaiser. I’d forgotten about the CAD vs USA hockey bet: Loser Keeps Bieber.

    We don’t really want him back but if he’s moving to the house he bought on a remote lake in Ontario, then that seems fine.

  19. Linda says:

    All my thought is has she ever seen a Canadian winter. I have lived through 64 of them and the 65th is coming up shortly. Brrrrr

  20. Little-blu says:

    It was confirmed locally in the news that he bought a huge property here- Ontario- not too far from where I live.

  21. SJhere says:

    Canada, I’m sorry for you. OTOH, maybe you can fix him.

    Canada…could we have Keanu, please? I’d be thrilled to have Keanu officially, he’s so sincere whenever I’ve seen him declare “I’m Canadian.” And, he does have a rep for good manners.

  22. Sarah says:

    He looks like he needs a Silkwood shower

  23. Mattie says:

    Sorry, but he looks like a 37 year old man in a somewhat sleazy bar trying to pickup underage girls who got in with fake IDs ….

  24. megan says:

    He looks AWFUL! What – did he use Sun-in on his hair? (anyone as old as me to remember that?)

    In the 2nd picture, she almost reminds me of Caroline Bessett Kennedy – very classic looks.

  25. me says:

    Hey we’d gladly take Justin Bieber back. You guys have Trump, you’re dealing with enough…Justin is a walk in the park compared to that monster.

  26. Pandy says:

    As IF they are giving up the spotlight for more than a week or so at a time. Don’t believe it.

  27. bap says:

    What a scumbag.

  28. Mrs. Peel says:

    Dear USA – please keep Bieber – signed all of Canada.

  29. tai says:

    hmmm…yeah I don’t believe they will actually live in Canada. I remember Janet Jones was going to live in Edmonton with Wayne Gretsky. That lasted until she nailed him down and he got himself traded to LA Kings. And they’ve been in LA every since. Hailey has never lived outside of LA right? Well, the rest of the world has these things called “Seasons”. She will not like the fall/winter of Ontario. And then its stinkin’ hot in summer. Also Canada doesn’t really have any paparatzi so she won’t be photographed which Justin may like but I don’t think she will. I think if anything, this will be their vacation home and they will remain primarily in LA. That is, if they even make it to actually getting married. And YES! Lets have Keanu back.

  30. Canadi-Anne says:

    No way, America.
    He was a nice, clean-cut boy when he left Canada.
    You break it, you buy it.
    LOL

  31. mazzie says:

    Oh, she’ll hate it, especially if they spend part of the time in Stratford, which is a lovely but in comparison, a sleepy town. Even in Toronto there isn’t that outrageous pap culture. She’ll get invited to things because she’ll be married to him but the media coverage won’t be as intense. (And most of us won’t care.)

    • Emily says:

      I think he might be willing to give up the pap walks but she isn’t he’s her meal ticket to more fame its a train wreck since they have been engaged i dont think there been a moment the paps haven’t filmed if beyonce and Adele can have private lives so can jailey they are just choosing not to and the hailey has the audacity tocomplain about comments online if you stop posting crap on social media they would be commenting

    • Carrie says:

      I don’t think she is that mentally well herself. I think he may be the first person to show her what she interprets as love… she looked sad and forlorn as a child often. This may make her happy. Fingers crossed.

  32. hogtowngooner says:

    Why would he give up his Canadian citizenship just because he lives in the US? He’s not an American citizen (at least not yet, if these twits actually make it official he’d be able to get it) so he’d be stateless.

  33. Veronica S. says:

    He’s been looking rough as hell recently, so maybe he needs it. My sympathy is limited, but I couldn’t imagine trying to grow up in a spotlight, either.

  34. Carrie says:

    I cannot believe how much I had to say in a Bieber post. Goodness. Lol

  35. JanetFerber says:

    Yes, Justin, do move back to Canada. It’s a small step for America, but it’s in the right direction.

  36. Valerie says:

    We don’t want him!

  37. Ladiabla says:

    At this point, I’d totally marry the Biebs for Canadian citizenship. I have no idea how it works, but count me in. And yes, I do think he’s a skeezy mega douche.
