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. Â And that they did, during their current joint tour. Â 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. Â And Justin Bieber’s infamous mugshot is among them.

Other mugshots featured in the montage include those ofÂ Bill GatesÂ and Sean I-Don’t-Know-What-You’re-Going-By-These-Days Combs. ApparentlyÂ 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. Â I mean yeah, I’d take it as a positive sign too if I was counted among people like Bill Gates. Â Who has achieved quite a bit, professionally and financially (I see your bait to tirade against Common Core and I will not take it. Â Not here, anyway).
What I find interesting is that while this montage appeared onstage, Beyonce allegedly shouted, “Even the greatest can fall.” Â Do I think Justin Bieber is one of “the greatest,” whatever that means? Â Absofuckinglutely not, obviously. Â Do I think thatÂ he thinks he’s one of “the greatest,” whatever that means? Hells to the yes. Â This kid makes his manager take porno-style selfies to post on Instagram, for God’s sake. Â And that’s just what he didÂ yesterday. Â That barely scratches the surface of the delusions he’s under when it comes to accurately seeing himself. Â 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).
