    People of all Political Views...

    Can we agree we hate/dislike/loathe/have a negative opinion of Justin Bieber?

    I understand the hate but I also think he's fairly talented.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    He's a little bastard, but a little bastard who will fade away soon enough.

    No. Good kid who needs to stop smoking that wacky tobbacy. Heart broken who isn't mature enough yet to realize he'll get over her. Needs to realize being annoyed by the paparazzi is a small price to pay for being a world renown and adored entertainer/gazillionaire at 18.

    Listen to uncle smegol and don't let if all goto your head. Always listen to your mother no matter how old you are even if girls complain you're a mommas boy. She's a good lady who would never steer you wrong. Try to diversify with a little acting. Read. Remember The Lord.

    I'm neutral. He's in the news a lot for acting like a little douche, but he's also genuinely talented and does a lot of good for charity work/visiting fans. He honestly just seems like most people in terms of character - a little bit of good, a little bit of bad.

    EDIT: The problem is that his mistakes are amplified because he's on the word stage. Most people his age make A LOT of cringe-worthy mistakes, but they get to make them in private.

    He doesn't bother me. My buddy's daughter is 14 and she is enamored with Justin Bieber, I find that to be cute. She also loves the latest boy band, the ones I think are a little gay, they arete always groping each other right on the crotch. But she its wild annoy them, i talk to her about them and she just lights up, so i have become find of the boy bands not a fan but not a negative perspective.

    Re: People of all Political Views...

    I have an extremely positive view of the guy, because he's talented - really talented, and I'm not talking "auto-tune talented". My daughters used to be huge fans of his, and when his movie came out, I had to take them to see it at the theater, which meant I had to sit through an hour and a half of his life story. I came out much more impressed than when I went in. As a musician myself, I am always much more impressed with those who can play multiple instruments. This kid is 100% self-taught. He was banging around on coffee cans, in perfect rhythm, at 3 years old. He owns where he is right now. He self promoted himself on YouTube and owes his fame and fortune to himself and a strong mother behind him. Yeah, he eventually signed with Usher, but he was very well known before Usher picked him up. I remember when he was just on YouTube, before he got really popular, and my girls and all their friends were just over the moon for this kid.

    Also, as has been mentioned, he does an awful lot of charity work, visits sick kids in the hospital, does a lot of good work that he doesn't have to do - work that he probably doesn't have time to do.

    Also, as has been mentioned, he's not really doing anything the rest of us haven't done when we were teenagers, but he's doing it in the public eye. Good grief, I can't imagine what would have been said about me if the paparazzi had been following me around 24/7 when I was a kid.

    Lose your new "friends." Stop throwing public tantrums so I don't have to see ridiculous pictures of your bodyguards picking up your tiny body and lifting you to safety. And keep it in your pants. Not all your baby-mamas are going to keep quiet.

    My God I didn't even think about the paparazzi following me around in my teens. Mercy I would have been ruined, "so clax why were you..." Enough said.
