You’d think that with the Olympics happening, American celebrities might try and cool it when it comes to any sort of rivalry with the UK. But not Justin Bieber! The little Rihanna/Road Runner lookalike reportedly told Rollercoaster Magazine (via Showbiz Spy) that he didn’t understand why British royal Prince William, recognizable by his early male-pattern baldness, didn’t take care of his little problem. Biebs was quoted as 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?”
And of course it had to be Bieber who mocks a prince’s lack of hair. This Canadian pipsqueak who was blessed with thick, shaggy, beloved-worldwide hair. Who can create magazine stories over what he does with a pair of shears. It couldn’t have been anyone else to go after William, nope.
Sigh. You hear anecdotes about Bieber being a little shit — as is not that unusual with an eighteen-year-old boy — but then he actually says this stuff and you just want to smack him upside the head. (Although your hand would probably get injured after encountering the gelled waterfall of hair on display.) Or like when he made a “your mom” joke to that DJ whose mother ended up actually being dead. I’m surprised that with the way Scooter Braun and his whole team manages him, he still gets away with these charming little quotes.
Anyway, Justin, Wills is gonna be king someday and is married to Kate Middleton, so I think he’s doing OK for himself.
