Ask any tween-age girl who their favorite singer is and the answer will most likely be Justin Bieber. But for every girl swooning over the picture of Justin on her bedroom wall, there’s another who simply can’t stand him. There are a lot of reasons people give for hating The Biebs, from his ridiculous hair style to his apparent inability to buy a belt to the fact that his songs are just not good. But these are all opinions so let’s take a moment to look at some real, justified reasons you can give next time a 12 year old girl asks why you don’t like Justin Bieber.
5. He’s a Bad Role Model For Fans
Along with astronomical musical success come crazed fans, willing to do and say anything to get the attention of their idol. But “Biebiebers” brought their campaign for Justin’s attention to a whole new level when they launched an attack on former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell after Bell tweeted his dislike of the 18 year old singer. The foul-tonged, hateful tweets were harmless, until they began to cost The Thirst Project, a charity Bell supported, thousands of dollars in donations. While Justin obviously cannot be held responsible for the actions of his millions of fans, he could at least speak out or make a comment telling his fans to stop. Encourage them to take their energy and channel it towards a cause they support instead of harming a charity they don’t. But he didn’t.
Add that fact to his menagerie of tattoos, high speed car chase, and the recent photos of him smoking marijuana and he’s everything you don’t want you child to grow up to be.
