Fugstin Biebfug


The Biebs Tweeted a photo of himself getting a medal from the Prime Minster of Canada — a medal by the way, reserved for Canadians who’ve made “significant contributions and achievements” — and you are going to love what he wore.

I met the prime minister in overalls lol,” he said eloquently. (Hilariously, Stephen Harper’s verified account later Tweeted, “In fairness to Justin Bieber, I told him I’d be wearing my overalls too.”) If you EVER doubted that Bieber is the rebirth of Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful, this should swing you to my side. He’s a cross between her and Donna Martin and a farmer who grows corn with really hipster stalks.

    “significant contributions and achievements” WHAT?!?

    As a Canadian, I’m embarassed for my country for awarding this medal to Justin Bieber.

    As a person who is not completely clueless about etiquette and appropriate wardrobe choices, I’m embarassed for Justin Bieber for wearing this outfit to receive his medal.

    I suppose this is disrespectful but as an actual Canadian, I can say I don’t think it’s that big a deal. It’s not a medal any of us have ever heard of. It’s just a photo op for the PM. It’s not like he was getting the Order of Canada or anything.

      As a fellow Canadian, I concur. It really only emphasizes his twerpitude.

        maybe (i am croatian so i’m unaware how big of a deal this medal is) but, for christ sake, you are meeting your prime minister and you should at least wear some normal pants and take of your baseball hat. being in politics since i was 16 i can safely say that i would never wear something like that if i knew that i would be in the same room AND photographed with prime minister or some other important member of my political party

          He should take off his hat indoors anyway, prime minister or no prime minister.

          But even setting that aside, it’s official – yes, Bieber IS actively trying to dress like a douche. So I guess this is a success, of sorts.

      Seeing as this medal is being given to other, more notable, recipients such as War Veterans, serving soldiers, etc… I feel like he could have made a leeeeetttttllllle more effort here to respect the honour of being awarded it. Accepting it this way (though he’s “in character”) sort of diminishes the honour for the other recipients, no?

    Watts was a delight. Bieber and Watts should never be compared again, unless it’s to say that Watts was SO MUCH more awesome.

      Watts even covered her neck tattoo when she chauffered her best friend/crush to prom with another girl, AND wore a jaunty chauffer’s cap. She’s the pinnacle of dressing for the occasion. ;)

    Seriously, must he make that “I’m totally surprised” look in every photo op? I can’t wait until his forehead just falls over his face from the multitude of wrinkles that will cause.

    As a Canadian, I must say that if he was going to dress like this, the least he could have done is to wear a Canadian tuxedo. Would have gone with the work boots. Twerp.

      Or a plaid shirt. AT LEAST put some poutine stains on the thing. Twerp, indeed. Hasn’t he embarrassed we Canadians enough?

    There’s a dash of Norman Wisdom in there as well. I can see where you’re coming from vis a vis Watts, but nobody is going to be spending their hard earned (by pumping gas) college money on diamond earrings for this goon.

    I am a Canadian. I do not profess to be a fan of Justin Bieber (or PM Stephen Harper for that matter). But I actually found myself sticking up for the CFL’s choice of Bieber as half-time performer at yesterday’s Grey Cup. A lot of people here complained that he wasn’t football friendly but I thought as a current, popular artist, he was a really good “get” for the CFL.

    This on the other hand? This is just embarrassing for everyone.

    I understand the clothes are part of his shtick but we all know that he has also for gone that horrible fashion shtick in favour of a suit on more than one occasion. This should have been one of those occasions, not for his own comfortable but for the people of Canada and everyone else who has been honoured with that medal, past and present. I know he’s young but he’s plenty old enough to understand the concept of respect.

    Bieber seems to be quite pleased with himself but then whenever I have the misfortune of seeing his picture I notice that he has that wide-eyed, vacant look. I made myself look at his performance and he was awful. I know I am not a tween, but when I was that age I liked The Kinks, Beatles, Stones… So you see I don’t mind epicene … but I do mind lack of talent.
    People, he cannot sing. His limp attempts to have a girlfriend were pathetic. Is this another sign of the apocalypse?

    I heard this might have been in protest of the Prime Minister because he’s apparently awful? IDK

    • Sandra

      The grown-up way to protest an (allegedly) awful Prime Minister is to decline the award ahead of time, not show up dressed like a 1980′s sitcom.

        I don’t want to discuss politics here, but you’re right. If he was trying to protest the PM, the way to do it would be to decline the meeting. Not show up looking like a dick.

        • Faye
          0

          Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. As I told a Canadian friend who’s very anti-Harper and defended Bieber on those grounds . . . deliberately dressing disrespectfully when meeting someone you don’t like shows more about you than the other person. JMO.

    • Jasmine

      He might be awful (and he basically is a chode), but still. He’s not the only one present, you disrespectful little cretin. And he’s still the leader of your country, whether you agree with his politics or not. I normally don’t have ANY issues with the Biebs– in fact I think he’s kind of adorable and is usually at least attempting to be mildly gentlemanly. But this… When I saw this on the weekend I cried out “BIEBS WHAT THE FUCK?!” and got so angry I tossed my phone onto my couch in a huff.

      Uprise, my fellow Canadians. Let’s just… collectively agree that he sucks.

      • Kate

        Agreed. I honestly think he thought the PM would be so pleased to meet him it wouldn’t matter what he wore. Ugh, between him and Nickleback I feel like I need to apologize all the time to the rest of the world.

      It does look like that, but he’s giving the “thumbs up”, so his fingers are curled in.

      I understand this was before a concert, and this is apparently what Boy Wonder wears during those, but how long would it take to change out of something appropriate (like a button up shirt and pants) into his size-kajillion-times-too-big overalls? I’m not fan of PM Harper, but even I would wear something “nice” if I was meeting him.

      • fritanga

        Right – even if it was a PR stunt set up by the PM. Who in hell dresses like a farmer to stand next to the leader of his country, whatever the circumstances?

    As a Canadian, if I were meeting the Prime Minister, i would dress up. Bieber did not need to put on a tux or suit, but some real pants and a dinner jacket would be nice. Or a shirt and tie? He looks ridiculous, and ridicules the country by doing this. Unless, by some weird chance he did not know about it (which I don’t believe) it would be somewhat OK. But then again, I hate and don’t get what Beiber wears most of the time.

  27. SKGD

    I’m not a fan of Stephen Harper’s but at least he handled the situation with a bit of class and humour (who knew??). For Beiber to show up in overalls and then to tweet about it with an LOL is extremely disrepectful. Not just to the Prime Minister but also to our country, the award, and the other receipients. It’s time to grow up Justin, enough is enough!

    I loved Beiber’s excuse that he was going from a meet and greet to meet the PM and then performing. He couldn’t take 10 minutes to change into a suit and another 10 to change back? Where was his manager? Where was any reasonable adult?

    If you’re receiving an honor from the head of a country, let alone your own country, you dress properly. I won’t even talk about that stupid ‘thumbs up’ pose and being too cool to smile.

    • Kris M

      I read that excuse too. From a guy who probably does a number of costume changes throughout a show, I’m sure he could have packed a dress shirt and pants.

        Exactly. Bieber would have staff who could have had him in slacks/shirt/tie in like 3 minutes. Disrespectful.

    ChristieLie, I doubt very much the Twitter quip by the PM was actually the PM (though if it was, I would be mightily impressed). I’m no fan of the man either, but it’s an award with other recipients and Stephen Harper is still the prime minister. He doesn’t just look disrespectful, he looks stupid. The event calls for more – heck, Usher should be ashamed of his protege! I actually feel a bit sorry for PM Harper, and that never happens…

    Dear Mr. Beiber-

    You are not a farmer. You are not a homie. That outfit is both painfully stupid and inappropriate.

    Please go away as soon as possible.

    Thank you.

    Okay, I just want to play devil’s advocate here one more time. This whole photo op was a PR stunt by the PMs office. It doesn’t constitute an actual honor. It means that Harper wanted his photo taken next to a young person who is popular. That’s the only reason it happened. And I guarantee all of you that the PM’s office is peeing themselves with excitement that the Biebs showed up in overalls thereby ensuring the entire world would be clutching their pearls over it today. If the Biebs hadn’t shown up looking like he’d just plowed the back 40, no one would give two s**ts about this picture.

    The press office is having a celebratory round of eggnog lattes this morning, I promise you. Furthermore, they should send Biebs a thank you basket of tortiere and maple syrup.

      Just what I was going to say. The PM went to Bieber, not the other way around. And I think it’s okay to dress for work while in your place of work. Give the kid a break.

    Score another one for Justin “Sixteenth Chapel” Bieber. I will say, though, that the PM was pretty hilarious about it all.
