Alright, because it must be discussed, let’s talk about SNL. Tina, of course, was hilarious. Brownie Husband was a perfect example of KNOWING what she had a hand in, and also a fun foray into Liz Lemon fantasyland. Loved the Sarah Palin Network, enjoyed Weekend Update (minus Kristen Wiig, of course), and the teacher skit made me laugh really hard.
But Tina’s always funny, and she’s always lovable, and any time she (or Steve Martin, or Justin Timberlake) wants to pop up on SNL, I’m game. But I’m less interested in discussing Tina and much more interested in discussing the bane of Twitter’s trending topics, Justin Bieber.
Dude, Justin Bieber totally came out of nowhere, like one day he didn’t exist and suddenly he was all fucking Twitter talked about, and he was on the cover of Tiger Beat or whatever the kids like these days, and I didn’t know much about him, just that he looked like a lesbian and seemed like a huge douche, a feeling I authenticated with John Mayer tweeting about seeing Justin Bieber at a party walking around with a white tiger cub. I mean, for fuck’s sake, when I read a tweet by John Mayer and he’s NOT at the forefront of doucheitude, maybe you should just reconsider your life.
Oh, and let us not forget about him whining about people throwing bras on stage. I mean, hello? Isn’t that kind of what you sign up for when you’re a rock pop star? And isn’t that one of the more AWESOME things about it? Do you think that Slash complains about having bras thrown at him? Hello, do you think Justin Timberlake complains about bras? NO! So why don’t you just shut the fuck up and quit being a little bitch?!?!
Okay, but then one night, I fell asleep with the TV on and when I woke up, MTV was on and they were playing MUSIC, and I was like, WTF? But I’m blind as a bat without my contacts, so I just kind of laid there listening to the song and I was kind of liking it, so I got curious and went for my glasses and … you all know what’s coming here. It was Justin Bieber.
So basically, I was forced to confront the fact that I might not think he’s so bad, even though I still thought he was totally lame. And then on Twitter, I saw an EW article that was like, “Why Justin Bieber might not be so bad on SNL”, so I clicked it and it made some sense, like … maybe his fans are more annoying than he is, and he CAN sing, and he has a sense of humor so it might be okay. Well, alright, fair enough.
So there I was, all trying to keep an open mind about Justin Bieber on SNL, and then he has to fucking get on Twitter and bitch about his picture on the cover of People Magazine. OH MY GOD YOU FUCKING LITTLE DOUCHEBAG BITCH! I can’t DEAL with it. Oh, you’re upset because they took a picture of you laughing? FUCK YOU! What a spoiled brat. You are on the cover of People Magazine, how about you get your life in perspective, bitch? UGH!
And you know, I’ve gotta think it’s really rough for publicists and handlers in the Twitter age, and with a kid who basically got his start on the internet (You Tube, from what I hear), but someone needs to teach that little asshole to keep his mouth shut before he goes full Miley (and everyone knows, YOU NEVER GO FULL MILEY).
As for the episode itself, and the Bieb in it, he really wasn’t bad. I can see the appeal–he’s cute, and he CAN sing, and dance too. He’s a little Justin Timberlake, a little Joey McIntyre … I can see it. And Tina pushing him in a baby stroller was HILARIOUS. You guys … I really do WANT to like him. I just need for him to not talk for awhile, or at least to be such a jackass when he does. Or at least to be a funnier jackass (a la John Mayer, king of the douches, but he really does make me laugh, so I forgive him a lot).
What did you guys think? I feel like this is the first mainstream, adult-venue view of the Bieber for those of us who aren’t 13. Feels a little like a coming out party (and Justin Bieber was definitely the prettiest girl at the dance). I want to know what you all thought on this.
Also, does anyone else get the feeling that there is an entire generation of young actors who wants Tina Fey to Mrs. Robinson them? I mean, I can certainly understand that, and congrats to Tina on being the go-to fantasy cougar, but seriously. First it was RPattz having a crush on her and then Justin Bieber being kind of a little weirdo with her. Tina is PIMP.
Comments, bitches! We’ve got things to discuss. I must know what you think. Go go go!
