WTF Collaboration of the Day: Bieber With "Beater"
According to MTV.com, perennially pre-pubescent R&B twink Justin Bieber will be collaborating with admitted girlfriend-beater Chris Brown on an upcoming tune. Brown, who pleaded guilty in 2009 to felony assault of then girlfriend singer Rihanna, tweeted today: ME and @justinbieber got a BANGER/SMASH record for all the fans out there at the top of the NEW YEAR!!! 2011 #BREEZYTAKEOVER
These two performers hardly need an introduction. Justin Bieber is a teen heart throb who's feminine good looks could find him mistaken for Ellen Page's younger sister. His single "Baby," a bonified iTunes juggernaut, is certified Multi-Platinum.
But Brown will likely be known for the rest of his life and beyond the grave as the guy who bit and punched Rihanna unleashing images of the beautiful songstress with a swollen, lumpy face.
Begging the Question?
What is the impetus for this collaboration? Is it possible Usher has teamed up with the "Bieb," in an attempt to soften and salvage his tarnished reputation? Is the the Bieberman in turn looking to up the ante and carve a sharper edge into his squeaky clean demanor? Who knows?
Maybe Bieber should relax and enjoy being a pre-teen heart throb for now. Soon enough, barring any sort of chronic hormone deficiency, his balls will drop, he'll grow facial hair and he'll be able to show the world he's a man--without the help of an admitted felon.
