Justin Bieber Pokes Fun at his Own Ridiculously Bad Haircut

Justin Bieber Horrifying HaircutComing off a performance at last night’s VMAs in which he literally brought himself to tears, Justin Bieber found time to poke fun at one of his most talked about features: his hair. Justin’s most recent style, which might have looked reasonable on a middle-aged soccer mom a decade ago, looks fairly ridiculous on a 22 year-old male pop singer today.

The “What Do You Mean?” singer re-posted a meme to his Instagram making fun of the new hairstyle. The meme compares Justin’s latest style with that of an older picture of TLC’s “Kate Plus 8″ star Kate Gosselin, showing how eerily similar the two cuts are.

What do you think of Justin’s current cut?

Selena Gomez Shows Fans What Really Goes on Backstage

Selena Gomez During Justin Bieber PerformanceSelena Gomez posted a picture to Twitter today of herself and Taylor Swift backstage at the VMAs last night.  The two besties can be seen pigging out with plates stacked in sandwiches and other junk food. Selena captioned her post, “I mean, if you really want to know what happens backstage.. ”

We’re not surprised. Given that the entire VMAs event seemed like it was thrown in Taylor’s honor last night, it only makes sense that Taylor’s “Squad” would also get first shot at the party platters . . .

Justin Bieber Plays Hero and Villain in New Music Video for “What Do You Mean?”

Justin Bieber What do you Mean Video stillLast night, Justin Bieber officially released the full video for his most recent single “What Do You Mean?”.

In the video, Justin’s character hires friends to stage a kidnapping of him and his girlfriend, after the two seem to be having some communication problems. The basic idea, we guess, is that he wants to play the hero for her. But these days, any video that ends up with a girlfriend seemingly overjoyed after being fake-kidnapped seems a little troubling to us.

Anyway, it’s clear that the producers spent a lot on the video and its slick editing. And maybe fans will enjoy the video on that level. But this is one case where we might actually prefer the lyric version better than the actual full blown official release …

You can check out the official release version for yourself below.

Justin Bieber Flies and Cries During His 2015 VMAs Performance

JustinBieberCryingVMAJustin Bieber took to the stage last night at the 2015 MTV VMAs and performed both “Where Are Ü Now” and his newly-released single “What Do You Mean?” Justin’s performance was filled with choreographed dance moves, aerial acrobatics and some unexpected tears.

The 21 year-old singer tried to sing while dancing but seemed to be breathing heavily throughout both songs. Near the end of his performance, Justin was surrounded by laser lights and lifted high above the stage by means of a harness. When he finally was lowered again down to the stage to end his act, Justin broke down, sobbing openly in front of the audience.

There are some reports that Selena Gomez left her seat to attend a meet and greet with Taylor Swift during Justin’s performance.

You can see snippets of Justin’s performance at the VMAs in the video below.

Why do you think Justin was crying? Was he overcome with emotion after not performing on an awards show in two years? Or do you think that Selena’s reported leaving of the auditorium during his performance might have had an effect?

Justin Bieber Gives Himself a Makeover and Makes Out With Britney Spears (Sort of)

Justin Bieber Goofs with Place Settings at VMAsJustin Bieber posted two videos to his Twitter account today that show him goofing around before tonight’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. In both clips, Justin is seen drawing on his own seat placeholder’s picture and having pretend conversations with other celebrities’ pictures.

At the end of the first video, Justin gets extra friendly with Britney Spears’ picture saying, “It’s just like that look that you give me, I want you to feel what I feel.” He then gives the placeholder photo of the pop diva an upside down “Spiderman kiss” in the second clip.

Even when Justin’s only trying to be playful, he can still sometimes come off as a little creepy …

Justin Bieber Shows Artists a New Way to Reach No. 1 on iTunes: Meet the 30 Day Social Media Tease . . .

Justin Bieber What Do You Mean!Yesterday, Justin Bieber released his latest single “What Do You Mean?”. The song reached number one on iTunes faster than other song ever, reportedly beating the previous fastest number one debut, One Direction’s “Drag Me Down,” by 5 minutes.

Many critics have given the track positive reviews, but to dominate iTunes downloads, Justin and his manager Scooter Braun experimented with a social media strategy that involved having celebs with high social media followings tease the release with Instagram and Twitter posts in the form of a count-down each day for an entire month prior to the single’s release.

The other celebs got the benefit of Justin re-posting their images to his own huge social following. But their participation gave him fresh image content and the network benefit of his message reaching the followers of so many other celebs.

Given how successful Justin’s campaign has turned out to be, the long social media tease is pattern that we think we’ll see tried by other artists. Even Demi Lovato’s recent mini-marketing campaign of having her friends tweet out each of the tracks of her new “Confident” album throughout the course of a single day seems like it might have been influenced by Justin’s experimental teaser campaign.

We’ve collected together all of the main celebrity posts that Justin used to help promote “What Do You Mean?”. You can check them out in the gallery below.

What do you think of Justin’s teaser campaign? Do you think it will work for other artist’s projects, or quickly become tired and annoying?
