Justin Bieber’s fashion dilemma
by Laetitia Wong
Would you be buy a shirt by Justin Bieber? Well, we would. Hey, have you checked out the young stud recently? Not to mention his style sense had gotten a lot better since his backward cap and hanging-at-the-edge-of-his-butt designer jeans. Tattoo sleeves aside, he’s really cleaned up his act, especially with the numerous ‘spitting on the crowd’ incidents during what he describes as his ‘teenage years’.
According to an interview with Seventeen, the 21-year old apologised publicly, saying “I was getting cockier and cockier. I didn’t have people to check me. I looked back and I was disappointed in myself. You have to own up to the mistakes, and you have to say “I’m sorry if I’ve let you down.” Who I am is someone who really cares about people.”
Make with it what you will, but the young pop star admits that though fashion helped him transition out of his dark phase, he states that he’s hesitant about starting his own collection and refuses to launch anything till it’s fully ready. In an interview with WWD, he stated “I just want to make sure it’s perfect and right and take my time with it. It’s about trial and error and I don’t know if I’m ready for that yet. Fashion’s definitely really important, but I got to make sure I’m ready for the failing part of it because I know that comes with it. It’s not easy. It’s not like putting out an album.”
We wonder if he’d be channeling his old bad boy reputation into his line. But then again, there have been a myriad of bad boys in the industry come and go; I’m sure we wouldn’t want to look like Mick Jagger. Although, there have been rumours of the bell-bottoms coming back in style. Hey, anything but Jagger’s hair.
What do you think? A Bieber line, yay or nay?
