There are fans of someone, and then there are the so-called “Beliebers” (*gag*), who are so obnoxious on there that Twitter seems to have banned “Justin Bieber” from trending. Ways around it? Certainly. Weapon of choice at the moment is “Derek Bieber”. Guessing Derek is the poor lad’s middle name or something, but to be honest, I don’t care.
|Aww, he wuvs his fans!
…I think I need to puke.
Justin Bieber might be able to play different instruments and he might even sing (I can’t even remember if I’ve ever heard him sing – which would mean his songs aren’t exactly memorable), and he might be donating $1 for every concert ticket sold to charity. (Which leaves, what, $49 for his record label?) He might be an all around decent young man. But that’s just the thing. He’s a super-hyped-up teenager who looks exactly the same in all photos. Yes, I checked – had to locate the image above, right? He has two expressions. The one above is one of them. The other is him with his mouth closed.
I just don’t get what’s so special about him, I really don’t. But then again, that could be said about anything or anyone. What’s so special about Richard Armitage? As fans, we can wax lyrical about him for HOURS, but to someone who isn’t a fan, he’s just another actor. I wouldn’t class the Armitage Army as obnoxious as the Beliebers, though. We don’t deliberately try to get RA trending each and every day and have no life outside of our fandom.
Then again, the mean age of RA’s admirers are at least twice that of the Beliebers. That might have something to do with it. 😉
Should any of the hoardes of these Beliebers come across this post and start a hate campaign against me (hey li’l kids, BRING IT ON! :D), I haven’t once said that I hate the boy. Don’t know him, don’t wish to. I just don’t get what his appeal is to all of you lot who are going berserk everywhere, particularly on Twitter, with your extreme, hyperactive fangirling. I do, however, find you, his loyal followers, incredibly annoying.
Just imagine what would happen if Justin Bieber joined the cast of Twilight. Twitter would explode. TWO extreme, hyperactive and annoying fandoms joined together. A lot of them are probably intertwined already, actually. They both appeal to the teenage girl market. Although I must say, it sounds a lot healthier to have a thing for the Bieb rather than Sparkles the controlling and abusive so-called vampire … Every cloud has a silver lining, right?
