I won’t lie: there was a brief moment, years ago, where I finally saw Justin Bieber as somewhat cute. It was a time when he had finally gone through puberty, he was working out a lot and his hair was pretty short and he seemed well-groomed. I finally “got it,” why so many of these younger ladies were into him. But ladies, that moment was truly brief. He’s spent much of the past three years or so looking very… tired. It could be the Lyme disease or it could be something else. He doesn’t seem to be working out that much and he’s lost A LOT of weight. But what’s killing me is how he styles himself – he insists on dyeing his hair blonde. He insists on the gross little mustache. He still seems to think trucker hats are en vogue.
All of which to say… Justin Bieber lost his hot. It feels like he’s been TRYING to lose his hot though, right? Like, he truly doesn’t want to put any effort into conforming to male beauty standards. Which I would halfway admire, except that now he’s posting some of the most unattractive close-up selfies and his thick-as-hell mustache is just THE WORST. This whole thing might be the grossest selfie ever? That’s what I’m saying.
*shiver* The grill, the stache, the unkempt eyebrows… girl, love yourself. It’s not Hailey’s fault – you know she would love for Justin to take better care of his physical appearance. This is entirely on him. This is how he wants to look. Which begs the question… why? Ugh.

I just skipped straight to the comments section to avoid it, so I could say
No thank you, I would not like to see that.
You chose wisely.
The invitation was too well worded for mr to say no to it. I wish I had chosen as well as you chose.
methinks there is something dangerously wrong with this boy.
yeah, his appearance over the past several months SCREAMS “mentally unwell”. I think he’s depressed. yeah, he’s got $$$ to burn, but he’s probably started to realize that his career peaked at age 15/16, and he’ll never be as HUGE as he was then. this can be soulcrushing for a lot of child stars. they were the biggest thing and now they’re almost irrelevant. it’s a “what do I do for the rest of my life?!” thing.
PS it looks like he’s used some sort of “thickening” or “enhancer” for his ‘stache that would normally be use for eyebrows. I mean, it looks like it has SOMETHING in it. maybe just filth. ew.
Eww.. Good eye!! I think you’re right. It looks like he put brow enhancer on his ‘stache.
Yeah, he/his team can use Lyme as a scapegoat all they want, but I hope they are dealing with the real issues in private
Did anyone see the video he did moaning about his song not getting to number 1? He’s in a car and just looks so so awful and strung out. If that’s what Lyme disease does to you….
He’s lost sight of reality if he’s moaning because his Yummy song did not reach #1, wow…..it’s a mediocre song at best, and that’s why it did not rate higher. He needs to get a grip. He’s lived too long in the spotlight and things he deserves everything automatically. Looks absolutely horrible in the pics. He needs to lose the blonde hair as well, not his best color. I used to like him in the early days. His music was a bit juvenile, but so was his audience. Then he began taking advantage of his celebrity status and acted like a complete jerk. His cars, his antics and parties, doing whatever he pleased because he could. After that, I signed the Petition that he be sent back to Canada lol…..he does need to mature and grow up, but how does one do that when you have people enabling you?
There’s this weird thing for dudes where they get rich or famous enough and they actively embrace looking gross. It seems like a power move to me.
See also, Austin Matthews similarly disgusting stache.
I’ve reached the age where I don’t get stuff though, so maybe this is the hot new thing?
I just feel bad for him. He may have been a much much happier person if he had stayed doing local music with friends and never got famous.
I was very disgusted by his behavior as an adolescent and very young man. But it’s clear after all these years that he has mental health issues and hurts himself more than anyone else.
I’d love to see him go away quietly for his own sake, do music in a low-key setting for his own joy and passion.
What’s with all these celebrities getting lyme disease? Are there secret celebrity camp grounds where the famous types hang out and pee outside? It’s just strange that I have lived all over the country (America) and never once met an actual person with lyme disease. How come I can name at least three celebrities who claim to have had it. Is it like calling addiction “exhaustion” or something. It just seems strange to me.
I think it’s finally getting diagnosed more. Also, I’ve read 1 in 4 ticks in North America carry Lyme or a similar disease.
In the last 5 years, four people in my church and friend community have been diagnosed with Lyme. Two, both men, lost their lives from complications. I don’t know why it’s becoming more commonly diagnosed. I still don’t understand why it throws off such bizarre and terrible symptoms, or why it’s so difficult to cure. I feel for these celebrities with a diagnosis and wish them all the luck in healing.
I’m not a Bieber fan. He doesn’t look well, at all. But if he has Lyme, I really hope he’s able to find good treatment so he can heal.
Yeah, I live in a suburb and went to the doctor with a rash and thankfully she do it and treated me so it didn’t develop into full Lyme disease. If you have a backyard you can end up with it. I was so lucky.
Yeah, I side-eye the hell out of too. Especially in this case. It seems like a convenient cover for…yeah.
Yeah.. I’m sort of with you. I know two people that have LD. Both live in suburban areas where deer are present frequently, and they spend time outdoors so that’s explainable. I grew up in a very rural area with all sorts of wildlife and never contracted anything of the sort. I do wonder where these celebrities are spending time that they’re exposed…
I am certainly no expert and have very little knowledge of this, but ‘chronic lyme’s disease’ is a diagnosis that is common with functional medicine doctors and is not related to Lyme Disease that is diagnosed because of a tic bite. Functional medicine doctors (who are not typically MD’s) claim that it occurs because of exposure to toxic materials (heavy metals, mold, etc) and ‘treat’ the ‘chronic lyme’ with an expensive supplement regimen, colon cleanses and enemas, extreme diets, etc. So maybe the Lyme disease that celebrities have these days is that?
I posted a LOT on this in the previous thread, but I’ll try to keep it brief.
More awareness/better diagnosis, climate change, and overdevelopment all contribute to the increase. And it’s still vastly underreported.
You don’t have to go camping to get it (I think I got it stepping briefly into high grass to take a photo).
If you ever lived in the Northeast US, you’ve met someone who had it. My brother (no complications) and neighbor (bad complications) had it when I was a kid and we lived in a neighborhood with deer and other animals. I live at the shore now, and got it last summer (sick for a full year). Everyone I told knew someone who had had it. Most people see the rash, get the antibiotics, all done no problems. Not everyone is so lucky. I never saw the rash and was really, really ill by the time they figured it out.
Bieber has a LOT of issues, but no one would take those antibiotics for fun (they are ROUGH). I believe he has been suffering from Lyme, in addition to other issues and whatever substances he abused/abuses.
To be completely honest, when I read about a celebrity having “Lyme Disease”, I immediately connect it to drug use. I don’t doubt that there are celebrities with real illness (Selma Blair comes to mind), and there are hidden illnesses, for sure, but yeah, I side-eye him and his “Lyme Disease”. Not that it’s not possible; it just seems like for many, it’s an excuse to be flaky and excused from decent behavior.
I tried scrolling fast, but alas — MY EYES. He’s gnarly. But then again, I have never seen his appeal.
I feel like he’s gonna “Lohan” in the next few years. . .
Lyme Disease In his case is cover for drug/alcohol addictions with a dose of bipolar thrown in the mix, I think. I’ve thought for a long time this kid was seriously ailing. Now his new handler is his wife who is woefully unqualified. It’s sad.
I live in the forrest, like a very rural, treed area with a huge deer population. We have bushes and firewood and all sorts of things we handle and I have never had a tick. My cat has once. My cat scurries through all sorts of underlying brush, etc. I also camp in the wilderness, off grid for a few weeks a year.
How the hell do all these celebs keep getting Lyme disease when they live in overly populated urban areas?
