It probably won't last long though, expect some 12 year old girl who doesn't know any better to vote yes sometime in the next few days and increase his induction chances to 1 or 2%

Posted by Robert on Sunday, 09.12.10 @ 11:39am"

Nah, the only stupid ppl are the ones who said yes, on the other hand, y do u think he would influence rock even by this stage?? and he's hanging around pop, he has nothing to do with rock. yes there have been pop artist in the rarhof but he is not as influential as them.

Back to telling whether justin bieber will go into the rock and roll hall of fame. He's gonna be a person to pass like the jonas brothers and owl city, he's not gonna influence anyone whats so ever though we have very stupid ppl these days. Green Day is one of the ones that might go in. But why justin bieber?? is he a eric clapton with his influences?? beatles?? stones?? ray charles?? beach boys?? hollies?? i dont think so, to some idiots yes, but tell me... how did he influence rock??? and will he influence rock in the future??? 0% chance and he doesn't belong

You. Are. A. Stupid. Bitch. Learn to spell, I don't think the word "Cause" is spelt like "Cos" if that's what you were trying to spell. How old are you, wait let me guess, 13 right? Get off of this site, Justin Queefer will not be inducted, he's not even at a 5%, don't get you're hopes up little girl, it doesn't look like it's going to happen.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 11.26.10 @ 17:26pm


"Green Day is one of the ones that might go in."

-Phil

There's nothing wrong with Green Day, don't compare a band that's been making music while Justin was inside a sperm cell. Green Day is one of the few good bands left in the music industry today, without them I don't know what music would be like. They revived the spirit of punk rock, at least have enough morals to admit that Green Day had a lot to do with punk rock instead of bashing them, they don't deserve that, they are a great band.

Summer and justin's girl:

You've got to be kidding me, right? Let me define 'music' for you two.

Music: sounds, usually produced by instruments or voices, that are arranged or played in order to create an effect.

I'm not sure we're on the same page when you two twits think that Justin Beaver, or whatever his name is can sing. He sounds like a whiney child. Take my advice and never call Green Day 'trash' again, unless you have looked up their history and have given me a legitiment reason to back up your thoughts.

(And maybe take spelling classes?)

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 09:36am


"u mad?"

Obviously.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 09:37am


Green Day hardcore punk?
learn what that acutally means you birth defect.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 09:58am


Also expalain Brittany:
why u mad?

Posted by GFW on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 10:05am


U dont kno whast ur talking about!11! My dad uset to make me listen to hardcore stufff like Gren DAy, iggy Poop, Nirvarna and Mudoney all the time. Those guys cant sing good like justin. justin haz better songs 2. justin should be in da hall of fame now!!!1

Posted by justin's girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 14:23pm


Listen dear, you don't know what YOU'RE talking about. How could somebody in their right mind say that over Iggy Pop, Nirvana, Green Day and Mudoney, Justin Bieber is better? You must've been born with a mental problem. And I highly consider you learn to spell correctly, especially if you want to condone a serious conversation with us. Justin Bieber got famous off of YouTube, while every other musician or act out there got famous by actually performing in front of people in the real world, do you get what I'm saying here? Obviously not.

That just boggles my mind how you or anybody could actually have the balls to say that Justin Bieber is greater than Iggy Pop, Nirvana, Green Day, Mudoney or any other hard working band out there. Next time you want to comment back to me, make sure you have correct spelling because I'm not going to waste my time with a twit who is too damn lazy to spell.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 19:46pm


GFW:

It wasn't that I was mad at you, I was just a little irritated at how you sarcastically mocked the other girls on here to purposly try to piss me off. I get it, Justin Bieber sucks but yes, that just got me a little irritated, that's all.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 19:50pm


justin isn't old like those other guys. and he can sing better. they ar just old guys who moan and scream and sound lik there farting out of there mouths. justin shud alredy b in da hall of fame.!!!1.

Posted by justins girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 20:01pm


And Justin Bieber is a 4 year old girl trapped inside of a 15 year old boy's body. Please, just shup up already, you make no sense. If you want to believe that Justin Bieber is talented, go ahead. He is nothing compared to Billie Joe Armstrong, Iggy Pop or Kurt Cobain.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 20:46pm


"they ar just old guys who moan and scream and sound lik there farting out of there mouths."

I found this quite comical. Please dear, show me some evidence of that, I'd like to see.

And not all of them are that old, most of them are in their late 30's, Iggy Pop is probably the oldest out of them all.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 20:49pm


And Green Day's not hardcore punk, they are punk rock.

Nirvana would be more like hardcore punk.

You've just proved to me you know nothing about punk rock music, therefore, your opinions are unvalid. <--(Meaning they don't matter, just incase you didn't know what that word meant.)

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 20:52pm


Anything else you'd like to add? I highly suggest that you keep your opinions to yourself because you've already embarrassed enough.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:03pm


I DO KNOW ABOUT PUNK. I NO ITS GROSS AND ALL THEY DO IS SCREAM ABOUT WANTING TO DIE AND DO GROSS STUFF.1!!!1 and they cant sing or play. u2 is the only good punk bank bcausz they arent hardcore like grn Day and there guy can kinda sing. not as good as justin tho!!!!1

Posted by justins girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:04pm


U2 is not even a punk rock band. They are pure rock.

And for the last time, GREEN DAY IS NOT HARDCORE, THEY ARE PUNK ROCK.

Please, shut up. You are so stupid.

And if you know so much about punk rock then why don't you show me? You probably don't even know who The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, or The Clash even are do you?

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:08pm


Are you a drop out or something, because your spelling sure tells it all. And your lack of knowledge.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:10pm


And I think you forgot that Justin Bieber is a female.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:12pm


I don't think he's going to make it in with that sad little 2%, dear. Your sexual fantasies can end now.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:17pm


HE WILL MAKE IT111. hes like john lenin but not whiney. sex Pistols sound gross. i know the clash. they are more boring harcore punk stuff that my dad listened 2. i dont iknow the ramones but they arent as good as justin so it doesnt matter!!!!!!!

Posted by justins girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:24pm


Nobody will make it in with a 2 percent, you have to have at least a 60 percents or higher to be eligable.

John Lennon is a massive building while Justin Bieber is a microscopic specimen.

Meaning, Justin Bieber will never be compared to John Lennon. John Lennon was an incredible artists, that's something that Justin Bieber could only wish to become.

Green Day's at a 68 percent right now, they're a lock. As that's being said, they have an automatic spot in the Hall.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:32pm


And what makes you think that John Lennon is whiney? His voice is smooth, unlike some people. (Justin Bieber)

He's not getting in the Hall. Go cry about it.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:40pm


THE HOLL OF FAME DOESNT LIKE HARDC ORE PUNK LIKE GRN DAY. THEY WONT GET IN. they like artists like justin he will get it. he shold get in now!!!111!!! he will be as importnat as the Beetles!!!1! hes almost as big now.

Posted by jstins girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:41pm


Green Day was compared to The Beatles. They've sold over 60 million albums worldwide. And what are you talking about? The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is all about Rock and Roll, not whiney gay disney pop. You are even making Justin look bad so please, shut up. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Green Day dominates Justin by a great number, he could only wish to be as successful as Green Day is. He won't be getting into the Hall. *boo hoo*

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:47pm


Green Day > Justin Bieber. (Meaning, Green Day is greater than Justin.)

So shut up now! You can make anyone go insane. Jesus Christ! Get off this page, you know nothing about music.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 21:49pm


Finally. Somebody had to shut that bitch up.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:01pm


JUSTIN IS ALMOST BIG AS THE BEETLES ALREdDY1111!!! GREEN DAY IS OLD AND NOONE CARES ABOUT THEM. OR ANY HARDCORE PUNK LIKE THEM OR IGGY POOP ANYMORE!!!

Posted by JUSTINS GIRL on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:14pm


Nobody cares about Justin Bieber, he belongs on Disney Channel. Green Day's been around for 23 years and they have still remained to be popular and influencing to many artists. Selling over 60 million albums worldwide is an amazing acheivement, Justin Bieber is nothing close to Green Day or The Beatles. If anything, Green Day is just as big as The Beatles, and if not already, then eventually they will be. Justin will NEVER be inducted into the Hall, so stop wasting your time on here because we don't care what you think. You've already shown us that you don't know anything about music so stop posting your random shit on here.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:25pm


And by the way, do you recall having anger issues?

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:28pm


The paradoxical irony of this conversation is about to make my head explode.

Posted by Justin"s Girl on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:30pm


Bottom line, Justin Bieber sucks and he will never, ever be inducted into the Hall, no matter how bad you cry.

Green Day is already a lock. Love them or hate them, they're in.

Cry about it!

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:36pm


I figured she was a fake. Nice joke, really.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:38pm


You think I couldn't tell by the name going from Justin's girl to jstins girl? I'm not that dumb. Unless it was a spelling mistake.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:40pm


Okay, I'll admit. You fooled me, even though I did have a strong feeling that it was somebody protraying her, but I didn't say anything, I went along with it. I got a good laugh out of it though.

Posted by Brittany on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 22:48pm


I was crying laughing typing some of that stuff.

Cheers.

I don't remember actually trying to annoy people, don't be so easy to anger.

Posted by GFW on Saturday, 01.8.11 @ 12:08pm


Well I caught it like you were purposly doing it. I apologize for getting angry, I guess.

Posted by Brittany on Saturday, 01.8.11 @ 12:15pm


"Yeah, all along. The other fakes were someone else, though."

I actually enjoyed that, it was amusing.

Posted by Brittany on Saturday, 01.8.11 @ 12:17pm


Why this website offers votes on people that are 25 years away from even being CONSIDERED for R&RHoF status is beyond me.

When Bieber comes-out of the closet (tomorrow) and becomes a gay hair-dresser...and never performs again, this site will still have voting access for him/(her)! LMAO!

Anywayyy......Justin Bieber is untalented, end of story.

And I'm really tired of girls I go to school with who grab their JB magazines in class and start making out with his pictures.

Kind of gross if you ask me.

He's one of the many people I can live without.

Posted by Brittany on Tuesday, 02.1.11 @ 19:56pm


I take it back, I've been listening to his music a lot lately...and it's gorgeous!
He is definitely better than those talentless hacks like Radiohead and R.E.M.

I stand by my words, Justin Bieber is the next big thing in music.

Thank you for reading, Justin Bieber IS Rock N Roll.

Justin beiber my be the future but rick astley will always be the king.

I am sorry to say but you have extremely mediocre taste in music.

And Britanny, U2 is definitely NOT pure rock....you aren't really bright, are you?

I find that insulting sam. Rick astley is more influential then the beatles, elvis, kraftwerk, Public Enemy and nirvana all combined.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 02.21.11 @ 19:17pm


The funny thing about pretending that my account has been hijacked is that I can finally feel like a real man.

On a more serious not, I feel Justin Bieber is a good musician, I find his son "baby" to be quite attractive.

He gets a thumbs up from me.

Posted by COLT 45 on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 20:38pm


Alright, so I was being a creeper reading through these comments and am beside myself. You crossed the line too many times, Justin Bieber fans that can't spell. Think about this: all the old rock bands like The Doors, The Beatles, The Stones created rock. Punk/grunge artists like Nirvana (I WISH Kurt Cobain lasted long enough to be old and "fart out of his mouth") and modern Punkish bands like Green Day add edge to rock. Juston Bieber didn't even change or influence POP, so why should he be included in the ROCK Hall of Fame? Oh and Justin Bieber's voice has no unique edge to it, while John Lennon's voice was amazing, SMOOTH, and considered the best of all time. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Posted by Rose on Sunday, 03.13.11 @ 15:13pm


To be fair, 30 years ago, a lot of these things would have been said about Michael Jackson (had there been a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the time) before he really hit his stride as a solo artist.

I still don't think Bieber should go in though.

Posted by Fred on Sunday, 03.13.11 @ 19:40pm


Rose, the the posts that you referenced were just a gag. "Justin's Girl" was a fake character making fun of Bieber marks and riling up another poster who was getting on everybody's nerves.

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 03.13.11 @ 20:08pm


justin bieber is a choice...for rock and roll hall of fame. what has are world become..oh wait every one sept six year olds like him so i think we're safe

Posted by lizzie on Sunday, 06.12.11 @ 01:40am


her's not a choice- most eligible acts, regardless of their chances, get listed here.

He has as much a shot as New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, all of those kinds of acts.

Posted by JR on Tuesday, 06.21.11 @ 23:34pm


Now this is just TOO freakin' funny!

This site fails to realize the criteria for induction into the R&RHoF! "Inspiration" ~ "Contribution" ~ "Development -and- Perpetuation of Rock & Roll".....etc. ---NOT number of hits, record sales, popularity...etc.

Bieber has done NOTHING (nor WILL DO nothing) regarding the development, perpetuation, inspiration and CONTRIBUTION to Rock & Roll!

....Unless this site is really a comedy page!?! ...I think it is!

Posted by Bieber's Gay on Saturday, 09.24.11 @ 15:29pm


We have pages for everyone. No reason not to. If we had pages just for people worthy for the hall, we wouldn't have many pages at all.

Posted by GFW on Saturday, 09.24.11 @ 15:42pm


In all honesty, I think there should be a 7 year minimum or something.....if the artist hasn't been in the industry for at least 7 years they don't even get a page.

Just saying.

Posted by Mike on Saturday, 09.24.11 @ 16:02pm


I'd support that, apart from people who had songs or albums inducted in our projects.

Posted by GFW on Saturday, 09.24.11 @ 16:16pm


Never say never! This dude is still young, and beneath all the hype he's does have great talent.

Posted by Cokey on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 10:54am


Reading all the negative comments/ridicule, now let me add. Justin Bieber is ev'ry young girls dream. He's only really been on the scene a short while and his handlers have hyped the hell out of him, its become an enterprise. Along w/ that come the haters/naysayers. Probably should have that "7-year" rule somebody mentioned. Bieber is just a boy still, now growing into a man. Some commenters are intolerant, calling Bieber a "gay" which only shows ignorance; criticizing others for bad spelling which is childish. Who can say what Bieber will be? Nobody knows, unless you are God. I dont see any comments here by God - please nobody try to fake God now. I say Bieber can sing and dance and play some guitar. I also say those myriads of young girls will grow up to be intelligent women, still loving on him. He will mature in time.

Posted by Cokey on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 11:35am


"criticizing others for bad spelling which is childish."

It is truly a morose day on God's green earth when the written word, the very expression of civilization and cultural enhancement is itself looked down upon as an immature, fledgling device that does not need to be nurtured to its fullest capacity, but rather dismissed as an indolent idol of unnecessary servitude. The mitochondrial structure of literacy finds itself bemused at the hands of the have-nots who would rather give 100% than acknowledge the unrequited denial of mathematics and physics by promoting itself 110%

Every utterance may be indecipherable, but society worships the multi-viewed rather than the hypocritical. When vocalizations are written indecisively, the age of chronological snobbery has dawned like the morning spring.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 11:55am


Bieber bears the onus of being superstar youth, which puts him in a very dangerous place. It took Frankie Lymon, who probably would have never gotten in if he weren't a founding father. It ruined Michael Jackson in a way (he'd have never taken those hormone treatments if he didn't believe his continued success relied on him sounding as close as possible to how he did in the quintet). We hear the stories of child actors getting ruined by the fact they were so young when they broke big. Bieber's in this category. Unless he's a multi-instrumentalist who can also write his own stuff, then he will not be another Stevie Wonder; or if he is not a savvy businessman who knows how to grow his brand, he will not be another Justin Timberlake. Bieber will most likely fade away.

Posted by Philip on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 13:04pm


From what I know beiber can play instruments but he just dosen't (probably because trumpets wouldn't really fit in with his music)

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 13:35pm


Philip, you have good insights, but cynicism gets in the way of your sound judgement. You seem to not like the idea of child prodigies growing into their genius. You think Stevie Wonder is the lone exception? It was hard for Michael Jackson, because he always was trying to outdo himself, plus he had a somewhat insulated childhood. But he did make it to the RHoF based on successes, his greatest successes as an adult, not just J5. Going back to Mozart, even to Bach, we see prodigies going beyond childhood genius. Some do burn out quick, but I dont see any reason to think Justin Bieber will. He seems grounded. I actually think he could be like a Justin Timberlake, which I guess we agree, is darn good.

Tahvo Parvianen, methinks thou dost protest too much. But you do spell well.

Cokey, always trying to outdo himself doesn't explain why he felt he had to do it in as high a voice as possible. The hormone treatments he took to keep his voice sounding high were the direct result of his worry that people wouldn't like him any more once his voice dropped, which by the way, IS what happened to Frankie Lymon.

I could also raise the point of the teen idols who faded away once they and their fan base grew up. I don't like to though because there's also the tiny point of the Beatles coming along and taking away their fan base, too. But look at boy bands: other than solo Justin Timberlake and Ricky Martin's success in Latin America, there aren't any 90's boy bands really still out there kicking. Heck, even the Backstreet Boys are practically a parody of themselves now, having to rely on 80's heartthrobs New Kids On The Block to help prop them up on the recording and touring circuits.

Bobby Brown's an exception, JT is an exception, Stevie Wonder is the exception that makes all other exceptions look like part of the rule.

As for Bieber, I say it because he's not taking the writing into his own hands, he doesn't have any established musicianship beyond mere singing (i.e. playing an instrument), and at this point, he's also too busy enjoying the ride and dating Selena Gomez to be seriously involved in the business aspects of it. Those things all stand poised to railroad him. Additionally, he hasn't shown any interest in evolving his sound. He can't continue to sing songs like "U Smile" once/if his voice drops. Maybe he'll successfully re-invent himself and surprise the world, and kudos to him if he does. Right now, he's relying on his looks more than anything else, and not being serious enough about it. I think that's going to ultimately hurt his career.

P.S. I'm not a Timberlake fan, but I do give him credit for being able to mature his style and find a way to keep going in the biz.

Philip, I gotta go after this. You point re Michael Jackson does not ring. I dont know about those hormone treatments. I do know Thriller (last I checked) sold more than any other album. Not to mention Dangerous, Off The Wall, and some of MJ's other megaplatinum albums. Smokey Robinson calls him the greatest performer (singer/dancer) who ever lived. My point is Michael Jackson did realize (achieve) his potential. You make it sound like he was a washout as an adult. He came to an early/tragic end, but still, look at all he achieved musically.

But the topic here is Justin Bieber. So what if he is "enjoying the ride and dating Selena Gomez." Now I think you must be letting jealously color your perception. Yes, you must be seeing thru green glasses. (smile)

Posted by Cokey on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 14:55pm


Cokey (or maybe I should call you mrxyz?), I'm not saying MJ wasn't a genius. He was, oh man was he ever. BUT what I am saying is that his genius would have come through JUST as well if he hadn't taken those hormone treatments to keep his voice high-pitched. All the songs from Thriller might have had to have been transposed to a lower key to accommodate Jackson's lower voice, but his genius would still have come through. He just believed that his fan base wouldn't accept a lower-voiced Michael. He was by no means a washout, but he wouldn't have been a washout if he allowed himself to mature naturally, either. In the end, too, I believe that, along with his insulated childhood, did him psychological harm.

As for envy, no. You're missing the point (besides which, I would feel like a dirty old man if I were actually attracted to Selena). He's too busy being caught up in the enjoyment and thrill of the ride that if he's not careful, it could disappear from under his feet before he realizes it. He's not keeping track of it all from a business standpoint. As far as I know, he's not learning any instruments, and he's not making efforts to let his sound mature and reach the listeners as it will need to one day. He cannot reasonably expect to go on being a teen idol relying on bubblegummy type of pop for his career. At some point in his life, there'll be a disconnect, and if he's not careful, and I don't believe he is being careful, he won't realize the disconnect in time. OR, he'll get sick of doing the kind of stuff he's doing now and try to branch out more, and get rejected and criticized in the process. I'm not envious of him, I just think he's on a crash course to fading out more quickly than he expects.

Posted by Philip on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 15:55pm


MJ ttok those tablets because of his acne, I don't think he knew they were going to affect his voice the way they did .

Also I think Beiebrs gonna go the way all teen idols inevitably do (apart from MJ and spears), away.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 16:56pm


Maybe, but I would think the effect on his voice would have worn off soon after he stopped taking them.

Posted by Philip on Friday, 11.25.11 @ 17:34pm


All I can say is thank God that by 2034 when Justin is eligible, I will be long be dead.

As to the conversation about MJ,if I may;

MJ was absolutely one of the greatest performers to ever grace a stage. He understood his audience and gave them exactly what they wanted. His Off The Wall album was R&B magic and easily his best album. Thriller was a very good album with one genius song on it (Billie Jean).

And by the time Thriller hit, MTV ruled and Michael understood that better than anyone. Musically, Thriller does not sell 25 + million copies. But once you throw in his amazing video's, the sky was the limit and he hit on all cycles.

Musically, I still rate Smokey Robinson a better singer songwriter than MJ. I just don't see the musical genius that is Michael Jackson. But as I said earlier, he was easily the greatest entertainer of the last 30 years.

JUSTIN IS ALMOST BIG AS THE BEETLES ALREdDY1111!!! GREEN DAY IS OLD AND NOONE CARES ABOUT THEM. OR ANY HARDCORE PUNK LIKE THEM OR IGGY POOP ANYMORE!!!

----------------------------------------------

"u gO girl summer. Justn iz da best, not like hardcore punk garbage grn DaY. Justin 4 eva. punk sux!!!!11"

----------------------------------------------
I think I'm a little late for the bandwagon, but I almost cried when I read these. You seriously thought about comparing Justin Bieber to The Beatles? (btw learn to spell their name). Here's a sample of Justin's lyrics:

Baby baby baby ooh.
Baby baby baby ooh.
Baby baby baby ooh.

And here is the Beatles:

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

The Beatles inspire musicians. Justin Bieber makes musicians shoot themselves. At first I wasn't going to jab at Bieber because who knows? Maybe in the ext 25 years he'll have an epiphany, hit puberty and make some real music. We don't know yet.

But then I read some comments and remembered why I've been contemplating suicide. Stupid. Fan. Girls.

You will not marry him. He is a star, and you are a 13 year old girl spending their time painting your toenails and playing with dollies.

He is not the best. While he is a celebrity and has some potential talent (the key word being potential; again we don't know), we can't compare him to greats like U2, the Beatles, Elton John and Billy Joel. He's just a dreamer.

So to all you fan girls who think you are going to marry Justin Bieber: F*CK OFF! NOBODY F*CKING CARES!


phew, glad I got that out of my system.

Not as bad as Brittany's reaction. Rage for ages then make several posts saying "I totally knew it was a joke all along guys!"

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 03.4.12 @ 12:54pm


Hey DarinRG, sorry for the rage, didn't realize you were justin's girl until I read some more comments. I still stand by my opinion. Justin won't make it; fan girls suck; and...no those were my only points. And I sure hope Brittany doesn't come around here anymore, not after THAT episode.

The funny thing about pretending that my account has been hijacked is that I can finally feel like a real man.

On a more serious not, I feel Justin Bieber is a good musician, I find his son "baby" to be quite attractive.

He gets a thumbs up from me.

Justin Bieber being in the hall of fame? There's a better chance of getting the colonel interested in the hamburger.

Posted by Tokiya on Monday, 12.3.12 @ 13:36pm


There's a better chance of Journey or Bon Jovi getting inducted in the future then Justin Bieber. He has no musical gifts and the only reason he is famous is because of his looks and his only fans are teenage girls. "Baby" is one of the most lamest songs I've ever heard.

Posted by Andrew on Tuesday, 12.4.12 @ 11:09am


Nirvana, Megadeth, Metallica, and White Zombie are way way better then Justin Bieber. End of story!

Hey Summer and Justin's Girl, have you two even read about Jon Bon Jovi cutting Bieber down after he showed up two hours late to a show in London back in March?

Sorry to distory your dreams of marrying Mr. Bieber, but give it up already! Justin right now is digging a deeper hole for himself and he won't be getting out of it any time soon.

So stop thinking you are going to marry him. He is nothing more than a spoiled rich brat.

Posted by Andrew on Monday, 06.10.13 @ 17:40pm


Man, that Justin's Girl. Still stirring up trouble.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 06.10.13 @ 19:58pm


You're right about that, DarinRG. When I first saw those two post comments saying that Justin Bieber is the best and that they wanted to marry him, I just had to laugh out loud. Who would say that about a guy who dosen't even say sorry for showing up two hours late for his show? I sure wouldn't.

BTW, if you were to look at all the comments that I 've posted on this site, what would be my best comment and why? The rest of you can jump in on this one too.

Posted by Andrew on Monday, 06.10.13 @ 21:30pm


Andrew - Good thing she was only around for one night.

I think my favorite post of yours was the one putting Justin's Girl in her place a few hours ago.

Posted by DarinRG on Monday, 06.10.13 @ 23:00pm


Summer, just so you know, Green Day could kick Justin Bieber's tail any day of the week.

Justin can do whatever he wants! He can have as many hit songs, thousands of female fans, or thousands of hits on Youtube. He can stick around in the public eye as long as he wants.


As long as he NEVER gets into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. (Emphasis on the word NEVER!)

Posted by Barry on Friday, 12.27.13 @ 13:45pm


Ahem to that, Barry.

I can't tell you how meny comments I've seen on this site where girls say that Pieber is so cute and that they want to marry him. Grow up already! Justin is nothing more then a selfish little brat who is trying to return to the limelight, but his time on stage is done. The only people who would vote Justin into the Hall are those same teenage girls.

Sorry, girls, but Justin Meathead isn't going to be inducted into the Hall anytime soon.

Posted by Andrew on Friday, 12.27.13 @ 20:52pm


Attention, all teenage girls who are Justen Bieber fan, your favorite little heartthrob has been arrested for egging his neighbor’s house in Beverly Hills and the police found cocaine in his house too.

If this meathead is found guilty, he might be fined and deported back to Canada. If that takes place, it will be the final nail in the Justin Bieber coffin, ending his career and you teeny boppers who said that you wanted to marry him will be in your rooms crying your eyes out.

So long, Mieber! It's been a nice 5 year run, but all things must come to an end.

Posted by Andrew on Tuesday, 01.21.14 @ 22:41pm


do you really think any of them are here?

like, seriously?

Posted by GFW on Wednesday, 01.22.14 @ 15:22pm


That really didn't cross my mind, GFW. All I know is that if this happens, there will be a massive outpour of anguish from a lot of girls over Justin's deportment. Bad news for them, I guess, but great news for those of us who hate Bies and his music.

Posted by Andrew on Wednesday, 01.22.14 @ 16:15pm


The Biebs (or as a local DJ calls him, "The Little Turd from Stratford") grew up about half an hour west of where I live. He has come to the mall close to my house a couple of times, which usually almost incites a riot of screaming girls. The thought of this happening more than every once in awhile is not something I want to entertain. You guys can keep him!!!

Posted by BSLO on Wednesday, 01.22.14 @ 17:32pm


Oh hell no. We've kept Celine Dion in Vegas this long, it's your turn. He's yours to keep.

Posted by Philip on Wednesday, 01.22.14 @ 18:31pm


Philip and BSLO, for all we know, Justin may get off easy if proven innocent so why are we arguing about what country he should be deported to if we don't know how the trial is going to go?

Posted by Andrew on Wednesday, 01.22.14 @ 19:10pm


Here's an update on the ongoing hole that Justin is digging for himself: he has been pulled over for drunk driving in Florida. Let's hope he'll get some help after this.

I'm thinking that he won't because he could care less about getting help.

He's just enjoying the life in the fast lane and I dount that Bies is going to slow down.
