Justin Bieber, That Vogue Interview, and His Depression

Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Vogue, March 2019

I like Justin Bieber. In fact, I might be one of the only people to defend his many random rants. But the news that he’s receiving treatment for depression coupled with the insistence that it “has nothing to do” with his wife Hailey is not surprising. The new couple recently did an interview with Vogue Magazine, and while others thought it a cute inside look at their romance, I saw their mutual misery as absolutely alarming.

Read the most telling quotes below:
Hailey
“The thing is, marriage is very hard. That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard.”
Justin

“I’ve made some bad decisions personally, and in relationships. Those mistakes have affected my confidence in my judgment. It’s been difficult for me even to trust Hailey. We’ve been working through stuff. And it’s great, right?”

Hailey (of a past betrayal)
“Negative things happened that we still need to talk about and work through.”
Justin“Fighting is good. Doesn’t the Bible talk about righteous anger? We don’t want to lose each other. We don’t want to say the wrong thing, and so we’ve been struggling with not expressing our emotions, which has been driving me absolutely crazy because I just need to express myself, and it’s been really difficult to get her to say what she feels.”

Hailey (in reference to the Belieber backlash about their marriage)

“I prayed to feel peace about the decision [to marry], and that’s where I landed. I love him very much. I have loved him for a long time.”

Justin (on being homebodies)

“She’s trying to be this grown-up. I think we can be married and still have fun and enjoy our adolescence. That’s something we’re talking about.”

I realize that I’ve plucked out the most negative parts of the interview, so if you’d like to read it in full and judge for yourself, head on over to Vogue Magazine. But be aware that I generously only pulled the actual quotes, because the interviewers observations and asides are even worse.

Justin Bieber Weeps During VMA Performance

Justin Bieber visited the Video Music Awards to perform ‘Where Are U Now’ and ‘What Do You Mean,’ and he closed his aerial spin with some serious tears, burying his face in his hands. Was this equivalent to a chick orgasm where a woman cries post ecstasy, or is he perhaps having a tough go of it, and we should lay off the guy for a while? I’m guessing the latter, and from the looks of it — he put a lot of effort into the show. Watch below.

Selena Gomez on Letterman — “Cry Me a River, Bieber”

Sure it’s fun to take swipes at your ex, but experience tells me that if you feel the need to take a dig, then you’re still in the ditch. Selena Gomez appeared on Letterman, who set her up for a well-timed joke when Letterman informed Selena that he made Justin Bieber cry. Selena’s response? “That makes two of us.” She also gave a Cheshire Cat smile, and said, “I’m so good,” which also leads me to believe the opposite. She’s clearly not over it, and her public put-down only served to take herself down a peg. WATCH BELOW.

Is Justin Bieber a Douchebag? — All Signs Point to Yes

Here at The Dishmaster, I make lots of predictions and then link to those posts at a later date to brag. So get ready for another one, because here goes: I predict Justin Bieber will spend himself into bankruptcy by the time he turns forty. Why? When asked about Prince William for the U.K.’s Rollercoaster magazine, Bieber commented on his hair loss, saying, “I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia . . . . I don’t know why he doesn’t just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?” Though I don’t wish him harm, he’s reeking of washed-up-child-star-syndrome. And we know how that story ends.

Barbara Walters Questions Justin Bieber’s Virginity

How dare the ladies of ‘The View’ insult Barbara Walters’ question-asking. She’s a genius — so when she asked whether Justin Bieber is a virgin, I thought: “That’s Brilliant!!! I want to know too! Why didn’t I think of that?!” Too bad she was shot down by her co-hosts. Watch below.

Justin Bieber on Chelsea Lately — Ego-Inflated?

In case you’re wondering whether Justin Bieber will be the next MC Hammer, the video below will answer your question. He appeared on Chelsea Lately while drenched in Usher’s ego. Did those two clowns sit down and discuss how to ooze douchebag during interviews? Sure the kid is 17, but I predict a full-on waterfall mansion followed by bankruptcy. Click below to see the interview.

Miley Cyrus Rejects You Tube Stars — What About Famous Daughters?

In a recent interview, Miley Cyrus complained about You Tube stars, such as Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black, saying, “It should be harder to be an artist. You shouldn’t just be able to put a song on YouTube and go out on tour.” Really Miley? You don’t want musicians to have a short cut into the music business? So what about your career? Do you think having Billy Ray Cyrus as a dad perhaps helped speed up your success a bit? Would you have had scored the same high-profile Disney audition otherwise? For years, Hollywood has been an impenetrable members-only club that excludes great talent because of limited opportunity for exposure. You Tube breaks that barrier. At least those guys did it on their own, without the nepotism.

Update: Miley Cyrus insists she was misquoted and she “loves Rebecca Black.” Yeah — sure she was.

Rolling Stone Misquotes Justin Bieber — Reveals They Like to Pick on Little Children

Rolling Stone was forced to release Justin Bieber’s original quote from his recent interview, after much public outrage and pressure from the Bieber camp.  The fiasco started when Rolling Stone asked Justin Bieber about his stance on abortion.  Here’s the quote with the omitted item in bold:  “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don’t know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”  First of all, I don’t even think Justin Bieber knows his stance on abortion.  Isn’t he ten years old?   Second, I think it’s completely ridiculous to ask this question at all.  Clearly they wanted media attention, and they knew that asking one of the most popular kids in America about abortion would cause the controversy necessary to get Rolling Stone some much-needed press.  And lastly, the omitted part of the quote is incredibly damaging to the magazine, as it completely changes the connotation of what he said. I’ve seen shady “journalism,” but this is completely disgusting.
