Is there already a Justin Bieber thread?

    Has anyone seen this Justin Bieber profile on CNN? He and his mom were on food stamps and broke until his mom posted videos of him singing and dancing on YouTube, and he was discovered by a producer? He goes to visit Make-a-wish kids and writes some of his own stuff? Do I have Bieber fever?

    Was Lazer-Craze mentioned anywhere in that profile?

    I had never heard of him until Kimmel showed a hilarious youtube clip of a 3-year-old crying because she loved Bieber so much. It was pretty funny. A week or so later, he flew the girl in to meet him, which I thought was cool.

    To the best of my knowledge, I have never heard one of his songs.

    Give him 4-5 years. He'll be downing shots in after-hours clubs and doing coke in the rest room with the best of them ...

    He's from Stratford, ON ... small town which is home to the Stratford Shakespeare Festival where I performed for a season. Not my kind of music but more power to him. Just 'cause it's popular don't make it bad.

    No it's bad on its own merits

    Wasn't Chris Brown dancing outside a gas station in Tappahannock, VA (middle of no where) when he was discovered?

    The kid can flat out sing. The fact that he's turned into a teenaged heart throb has nothing to do with his talent.

    He was spotted at a Toronto shopping mall on Boxing Day, Canada's version of Black Friday. To say word spread like wildfire would be an understatement

    Oh, and I didn't see the CNN profile but if they said his mom was on food stamps, that would be impossible. We don't have those up here.

    He has all the trappings of the cliche kid heartthrob. That makes him pretty much not even a nanomicroblip on the radar of a middle-aged pissy contrarian bullshitter like me.

    Saw him on SNL. I thought he was dynamite. No blue font.

    That was my first thought too.

    And his mom is a babe.
