PREACH IT! Kids' Choice Award appearance reveals the real Justin Bieber
The comments are flying thick and fast over Justin Bieber’s appearance at the Kids’ Choice Awards this weekend.
People are shocked, just shocked, at Bieber’s dismissive attitude toward reporters and his refusal to get slimed, which is the whole purpose of showing up at the Nickelodeon spectacle.
Yes, he’s talented; he can sing and strum a guitar and keep his hair in place at the same time. He can sling the charm on talk shows, teaching Chelsea Handler how to wink and whatnot. He even has what he calls a "swagger coach" to keep his style situation in check.
But at 16, Bieber also is developing quite the ego.
He ordered everybody around ...
The whole cocky attitude was cute for about 30 seconds. But after the Kids' Choice Awards, it’s starting to look a little tired.
Maybe somebody needs a curfew.
