Bieber Backlash Over Stupid Prince Comment

by Paul Cashmere on April 23, 2016

in News

Justin Bieber is once again the laughing stock of the world after making an inane and egotistical comment after the death of Prince.

Guitarist Andrew Watt referred to Prince as “the last of the greatest living performers” on his Instagram page which sent Bieber into a tantrum commenting back “well, not the last greatest living performer”.

Watt’s full comment was:

This past Tuesday night before my show I was picking out an outfit…I was so tired from the past week of endless traveling and gigging that I grabbed my Prince shirt and said fuck it I’m gonna channel the purple one tonight…I didn’t shower after the gig out of pure exhaustion…I went to sleep in that shirt and then I wore it again all day yesterday…today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself…devastated…the last of the greatest living performers…my guitar idol…his connection to ALL his instruments yielded a sexual transcending aura and the world is just less fucking cool without him walking on it… “Electric word life
It means forever and that’s a mighty long time
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else…
The after world”

Bieber took an instant verbal belting from fans with comments like”

The comment was 100% NO CLASS! Just something you’d expect from a spoiled rotten, self-entitled piece of shit wannabe like him! #Prince was a genius! A completely SELF MADE musician! #JustinBieber is a hand crafted HACK made by handlers, producers and writers forced on the world public and consumed by people who don’t know what music, musicianship and true artistry really is!


@justinbieber is a self centered immature little boy & will NEVER have 1/16 of the talent or intelligence Prince had

Bieber quickly deleted his silly comment.
