If you're a regular to the blog, you know that I like to write about the college newspaper scene, since I am an editor-in-chief alumni myself.
Thanks to the power of Twitter and my compiled 'college-newspapers' list, I found this on my feed and found it to be intriguing.
Dustin Volz of the Arizona State, State Press wrote a piece about Justin Bieber criticizing his fans entitled, "Bieber Breakdown".
"I’m writing about Bieber because I came across what is possibly one of the funniest online news headlines.
'Justin Bieber wants fans to stop screaming,' it read.
I had to click.
I was, frankly, worried for the teen sensation. Maybe he suddenly developed a serious hearing problem, I thought. Or maybe he wants his fans to give a moment of silence to honor something or someone modestly important. This could be real news.
No such luck. Bieber’s just sick and tired of hysterical fans losing any shred of dignity around him. He can’t take it anymore. He’s fed up with them and just wants to have a normal life, apparently."
What? Justin Bieber is "fed up?" What did you expect Mr. 16-year-old teen sensation? There is a price you pay for being a star. You officially cannot have a normal life anymore and that's the unfortunate reality of it.
“And don’t come up to me while I’m eating,” Bieber told his fans via Teen Vogue magazine. “How would you like it if I came into your house and started taking pictures of you while you were eating? I hate that.”
Don't go up to him while he's eating Bieber maniacs! Geez, let the man eat his flipping McDonald's Big Mac and fries.
Volz joked with this remark,
"First off, I doubt fans — as loony as many may be — are breaking into Justin’s house and taking photos of him sipping juice at the breakfast table. He doesn’t live in Huntsville, Ala."
And it gets even better. Bieber claims he shops at Walmart. I guess it's possible, but dude, talk about sticking out like a glass of Mountain Dew surrounded by water.
"Okay, two more things. I’m skeptical Bieber shops at Wal-Mart. This is the same kid who unseated Lady Gaga for the title of having the most-viewed YouTube video of all time. The same kid who uses 3 percent of Twitter resources at any given moment, according to Gizmodo. He’s pals with Usher and Kanye — they wouldn’t allow bargain-bin shopping for their hip-hopper-in-training."
I highly suggest you head over and check out the full read. Sorry Justin, but that's what happens when you're super famous at a young age because more than likely 99.9% of your fan base is going to be crazy teenage girls. Just do what everyone else does and disguise yourself or just don't go to Walmart anymore.
Good work State Press, except for one minor thing I just noticed. I believe it's spelled Walmart, not Wal-Mart (according to its website).
