Never Say Never: 9 Reasons It's OK to Admit You Have Bieber Fever
It's time to face facts: Justin Bieber is the future. You may have resisted his viral ascent to YouTube glory, or rebuffed those confection-like hit singles as they attempted to infect your brain, but this week, as his biopic-rockumentary Never Say Never hits screens nationwide -- yes, documenting all 16 drama-filled years of this pop icon's life -- we will all fall prey to the epidemic of adorbs. Here's why you should just sit back and succumb to the Bieber Fever.
1. He's a dreamy, angel-voiced moppet sent from heaven to unite the nation.
As evidenced by the behind-the-scenes footage director Jon M. Chu captures in Never Say Never, the Biebs is a man-boy of faith -- a fact not lost on marketing and PR folk. But while conspicuous, it doesn't feel phony; the Bieber machine is selling a chaste dreamboat fantasy, and if that's the happy medium that brings liberal-leaning hip-hop stylings to the red states, so be it. (He's already infiltrated the White House. It's only a matter of time before we pledge allegiance to President Bieber.)
2. And on that note: The Biebs has more Twitter followers than Jesus.
They don't call them Beliebers for nothing. JB's official Twitter account -- which, Never Say Never reveals, he used to reach out to his fans while lonely and on the road -- boasts over 7M followers. @Jesus has a paltry 267K by comparison. But then again, his account isn't verified.
3. Even Kanye says Bieber's nuthin ta f*ck wit.
The sweet vocal stylings of Justin Bieber's "Runaway Love" meet Wu-Tang in this Kanye West remix. Good luck trying to get this one out of your head.
4. He's undeniably talented.
Haters gonna hate, but Bieber's musical talents are hard to ignore. Between home videos of a pint-sized Bieber wailing on a drum kit, singing impromptu a-capella runs, and busking on the streets of Canada with just his guitar and a dream, he puts most other teen pop stars to shame. Also: He can do the Dougie, doesn't need to lip-synch, AND he could probably remember all the words to the Star Spangled Banner even though he's Canadian. Bieber 1, Aguilera 0.
5. His favorite color is purple.
Just like Prince!
