Justin Bieber wins not The Nobel Prize in Literature.
by Walter Price
I don’t want to pick on a music industry cash-cow or a seemingly bratty artist like Mr Justin Bieber, nor do I want to pick on his songwriting partners (up to 5 on one song!!) but, Come On…Historically Pop music is one of the most intriguing forms of music. The Beatles, Lady Gaga, New Spell, Randall Timberlake, Elton John and so on and on have proven you don’t have to write super deep lyrics to be awesome but to write ridiculousness is an insult to the history of pop and your fans. To almost quote a Spider-Man comic, “With influence comes great responsibility…”
Even though these songs are written to turn on (musically) little kids and tweens, they are still condescending and silly. And sure the decades are littered with crappy popular songs, and we’ll get into those at a later date.
Here are just 3 Reasons Why Justin Bieber and/or his cohorts will never win The Nobel Prize in Literature
Justin Bieber, Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and Terius “The-Dream” Nash
Baby, baby, baby oh
Like baby, baby, baby no
Like baby, baby, baby no oh
Justin Bieber, Frank Ocean, Dapo Torimiro, Kevin Risto and Waynne Nugent
Put your tooth under your pillowcase
And know I won’t I won’t
Ever ever let you down (no)
Like a seesaw let you down (oh)
You know why
‘Cause we ain’t in the playground no more baby
Justin Bieber, Deepin Rathore, Mason Levy and Matthew Musto
Baby, take a chance or you’ll never ever know
I got money in my hands that I’d really like to blow
Swag, swag, swag, on you
Chillin’ by the fire while we eatin’ fondue
I don’t know about me but I know about you
So say hello to falsetto in three, two, swag
