Owning Bieber

You knew this day was coming. Bieber has a new song out, so you know I have an opinion on it. I think we're all a little surprised it's taken me so long to say something. I mean, come on, it's Bieber. RIGHT.

When Bieber first came out and all the young girls were all OMG about him, I wasn't impressed. To be honest, I thought his name was Beaver and I giggled every time they said his name. My girl Marti said it best when she proclaimed "what's a Bieber" when her kids begged "we want Bieber!"

But I'll admit to owning a few of his songs, because they're catchy as hell, and have come in handy when making playlists for younger folks who adore him.

So here's the deal. I don't hate the new song. I KNOW. Every fiber of my being tells me I should hate it, and yet I don't. Let me tell you why.
  • It's catchy whether you're willing to admit that or not
  • It's easy to sing along to in the car (when you think no one can hear you)
  • I like mixed music genres like alt rock and hip hop together; it keeps things fresh
  • I like when artists try new sounds because it shows they're comfortable with their abilities and willing to put themselves out there
  • Did I mention how catchy it is?
Reasons I don't like the song:
  • It sounds like Baby Timberlake
  • You don't fuck with Timberlake


  1. It is weird that I love you even more for liking the Biebs?

  2. I haven't been able to bring myself to listen to it yet, but you make a compelling argument. I'll give it a shot.

  3. While you do make a good argument, I'm not going to listen to it. I don't want that on my conscience. However, I'm going to watch that Carry Out video and turn on iTunes and listen to all of my Timbaland stuffs. And Timberlake stuffs.
