You Know Justin Bieber Has Reached Notorious Status When Beyonce And Jay-Z Are Making Fun Of Him

Though I’m sure a lot of us out there would agree that Justin Bieber has been on the well-beaten path to notoriety for quite some time now, reaching that official status isn’t final until Beyonce and Jay-Z say it is.  And that they did, during their current joint tour.  Beside sharing their intimate, totally-on-lock-down-for-six-years wedding photos, wearing ass-less chaps, and basically casting everyone under their spell (which takes a good amount of PR talent after that elevator fiasco), Beyonce and Jay-Z’s tour also features mugshot photos of famous people.  And Justin Bieber’s infamous mugshot is among them.

Other mugshots featured in the montage include those of Bill Gates and Sean I-Don’t-Know-What-You’re-Going-By-These-Days Combs. Apparently Bieber himself seemed to find this to be a good thing, as he retweeted a photo from the concert when the above Twitter account brought it to his attention.  I mean yeah, I’d take it as a positive sign too if I was counted among people like Bill Gates.  Who has achieved quite a bit, professionally and financially (I see your bait to tirade against Common Core and I will not take it.  Not here, anyway).

What I find interesting is that while this montage appeared onstage, Beyonce allegedly shouted, “Even the greatest can fall.”  Do I think Justin Bieber is one of “the greatest,” whatever that means?  Absofuckinglutely not, obviously.  Do I think that he thinks he’s one of “the greatest,” whatever that means? Hells to the yes.  This kid makes his manager take porno-style selfies to post on Instagram, for God’s sake.  And that’s just what he did yesterday.  That barely scratches the surface of the delusions he’s under when it comes to accurately seeing himself.  So that’s what I’m choosing to believe Beyonce meant when she said “the greatest.”

Because I am slightly delusional when it comes to accurately seeing her as a flawed human being (shut up, we all are).

    I remember the days when people would get embarrassed if you saw their mugshot. WTF?

    • Cassandra Hough

      I know I’d be mortified if anyone saw mine! (And I wish that were a joke. It is not.)

    • J_Doe5686

      Mine should remain hidden. I don’t even know where to find it. I don’t even know if it’s online.

    “Even the greatest can fall”? Famous last words, Beyonce. Make sure you don’t eat them someday.

      #truth.

      “Even the greatest can fall” seems like an acknowledgement that anyone is vulnerable (presumably even herself). I’d be more inclined to say “make sure you don’t eat your words” if she said something implying she’d never fall.

    I don’t have a mugshot, but if I did I’d want it buried so deep…

    Are mugshots a status symbol? Have I gotten that old?

    Speaking of getting that old, I’m going to shuffle over to the “pro Common Core” side of the room.

    goes to show : you people ASSUME too much !! the writer of this story used the word, “allegedly” , meaning he wasn’t there nor does he know if she said this or not! true to form, you folks run up here talking that talk as though she did !!
    this story has been verified a lie, but don’t allow that to stop you……….

      Really? Who has verified this as a lie? People at the concert said it happened and there’s video of it. Also, I’ve never met a male named Cassandra. So I’m going to say you assumed the author was male without actually doing the really hard task of scrolling up to read the authors name. It’s hard to take you seriously if in the same sentence you admonish someone’s action while doing the same thing yourself. All in one sentence.

    Beyoncé doesn’t have a mug shot and neither does Jay Z.

    Let these moguls have their fun….

    • Nbl

      Umm Jay-Z has an arrest record. Pretty sure there’s a mug shot out there somewhere.

    • FauxRealFaux

      Umm, gold star for being a know it all!

    • Nbl

      Aw aren’t you a sweetheart!
