Justin Bieber might need a new definition for the word “nuts.” And I’m not talking about the nuts squirrels hoard or the slang word for man parts or the things that go with bolts or the things at opposite end of a meal from soup. I’m talking crazy. I’m talking bizarre. I’m talking Justin Bieber’s week in London.
Last night Justin tweeted his thoughts on his recent trip to London, and as per usual he’s trying to make it look like his experience in London was all some elaborate piece of over-the-top fan fiction which the worldwide press used their collective unconscious to write:
So the press made the trip look nuts, Justin? So you didn’t threaten a paparazzo or arrive late to your concert or collapse at a concert or share a centerfold-pose picture of yourself in the hospital or walk around with a gas mask or roam the London streets with no shirt and your pants falling down? Or are we just supposed to take your word for it that those things weren’t nuts? And you’ve “seen” some crazy stuff? Did you exit your own body Annie Hall style and watch yourself do those things?
Even if Justin wants to claim that his week wasn’t as crazy as some media outlets made it seem, he can’t really get away with distancing himself from his own behavior and experiences as if they weren’t bizarre in the first place. I describe events or periods in my life as “nuts” all the time. “I broke my arm today. It was nuts.” “I went a little nuts yesterday and ordered two ice cream cones.” “That royal wedding fascinator I wore to the post office last week looked pretty nuts.” See, Justin? If I can do it, so can you.
Justin did have a nuts week in London, and denying that only further convinces people that he doesn’t have things in control and doesn’t want to take responsibility for his behavior. I’d have a lot more faith in his ability to get his public persona in order if he would admit that things have been a little off with him lately. Also, side note, Justin: no shirt, no belt — not amused.
