As long as nobody mentions Leif Garrett, Donny Osmond or Pink Lady and Jeff we'll all be just fine.

Oh....wait....

dammit!

Don't feel sorry for Bieber. The kid has made millions and will be making even more now that he is over 18.

He could quit any time he wanted to.

Yeah, but a woman's breasts are beautiful things. We're talking about Justin Bieber's unit here. The jokes practically write themselves.

50,000 you say? I could have an army and take over some small little loser country. There must be something to this.

Seriously, though, while I despise his "music" and pretty much everything about the kid, I don't really think he deserves to die. Retire early, yes. Die, no.
I admire your bold stance against teenage performers you don't like being castrated and murdered. The way you weighed the options and decided he wasn't worthy of brutal mutilation and death just because he makes shitty music really makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Such complex ethical questions do demand careful consideration.

But in the end--while it was bold, as you say--I think his position was the correct one. So, kudos to him.

Yeah, I don't get that, except that it emphasizes the "scary-bat-shit-crazy" qualities of the alleged plotter.
Like some kind of crazy pop culture terrorism.
It's just a detail of the weird ass murder fantasy. Like the bodyguard. The Biebs probably has a team of bodyguards rotated in and out by the security contract company. And yet, the "mastermind" of this affair wants a bodyguard murdered with the target of his "affection (he has the kid tattooed on his leg)." WTF is that? I don't think you can apply real world logic.
Who said this has anything to do with logic?

I dunno, have you heard him sing? The castration part may be too late.

The whole plot just sounds... Odd.
A well placed pair of vice grips would get you that note, so we don't know...

I'd rather have a few million and be a nobody than have multiple millions and not be able to go to the store. It's kind of weird when you could buy any store you want but you can't wander around one all by yourself without massive attention.

But people still listen to Frankie. To truly compete you must be on every teenage girl's wall and ten years later completely off the airwaves.

Re: Justin Bieber: police uncover plot to castrate and murder teen sta

The difference here is that the Beebs will be with us forever. He's going to be the Liberace of pop when he's 50. And he'll still have the same devoted haters who have wasted their lives hating on him and feeding the Beeb machine with their anti-Beeb hype. Only now it will be glam.. and hipsters will be buying up early era purple Bieber merch ironically.

This disturbing story needs music.
Without even listening I know I prefer Joan Jett's version.

Wow. That's disturbing, to say the least. I mean, I don't especially like the guy (no surprise since I am waaaay outside the target audience) but that's just wrong. Good to hear they revealed it in time.

Aye, maybe more. And that's at any given time!
