Justin Bieber Likes Michael Jackson
And I bet Jackson would have loved him right back!
Bieber is on the cover of the new Vanity Fair, and though I usually enjoy making wicked fun of the kid, I'm going to sit this one out because he says some interesting things in the interview.
He admires a lot of black singers, like the late, lamented Jacko.
He hated school.
And he knows he's cute.
But then, of course, he has to go and mention God!
If there was a God, there wouldn't be a Justin Bieber!
Kidding. Like I said, I'm going to go easy on him this time.
It's just surprising that the magazine has played so brazenly around with its demographic--the ones they usually serve articles about Liz and Dick and "Camelot" to--in favor of something barely pubescent.
The cover choice they rejected--Julian Assange--might have appealed to all ages.
