Just to start I want to clarify that I am not a fan of Justin Bieber whatsoever. In fact, many times I’d hear a song on the radio and ask people what chick is singing this and then be shocked to discover it’s actually a guy. All that aside I’m not hating on him because realistically there’s TONS of artists that have songs written for them or are told to perform a certain style. I guess it doesn’t help that in the beginning of his career he obviously hadn’t hit puberty hence why everyone who didn’t know him thought it was a girl. Everyone listens to different genres of music and that’s okay. Everyone SHOULD listen to different genres or at least I mean you should listen to whatever YOU want to listen to and you enjoy. A lot of people feel like they have to get into a particular artist or type of music because all of their friends do. To each their own.
So Justin smoked weed? Oh no, what are we going to do?! He was once seen with a desktop vaporizer. Your Uncle Bob, father/mother, sister/brother, cousin, teacher and countless others might smoke too? Oh, that’s okay. Get real. People smoke and drive and don’t kill other people but thousands of us are killed each month from drinking and driving accidents. Alcohol is legal though. Weed was put here on the earth naturally like many plants and people are using it to get some great smoke which is perfectly fine. The big difference is that it’s a plant that you can use unaltered and not man-made. Sure you can consider it a drug because yes it is mind altering just the same as coffee is a drug (yet only one of those will land you at one of the main celebrity rehabs). I think the big problem is that it’s pinned the way it is and put on display as an evil gateway drug that will corrupt your life. Once again I’m pretty sure alcohol has WAYYYYYY worse effects. Never heard of somebody overdosing on marijuana. It’s even used and proven to be effective in medical treatments and the treatment results were some good ones. There are many edible recipes of it too.
Crazed fans or “Beliebers” are outraged and apparently find that the only way to solve this so-called “problem” is to cut into their own flesh. Now THAT’S a problem. I can’t pretend to understand why someone cuts themselves because I obviously have never even thought about it since it seems so selfish and beyond absurd but I don’t need to take a razor to myself to know that it’s wrong and NO ONE should be doing it. You need help and a lot of people would be glad to aid you. To be so upset that someone else famous or not famous does something that you don’t is ridiculous. Should I take a knife to myself because Joey drinks, and not just that, he drinks WINE?! Realistically he should be able to do a drug that actually WILL devastate your body without people making a big deal out of it. It’s his life not yours. It’s not fair to put that pressure on someone and it’s unhealthy to put any one person on a pedestal in the first place. You will always be disappointed.
Now I know many people will take this contradictory or say something along the lines of, “You said to each their own and it’s his life not yours, so why shouldn’t someone cut themselves”? You’re right, you have all the capability to do it but should you do it at all? Even worse should you do it because of someone else? What does it truly accomplish? If you think your life is so bad or that there’s nothing left, you’re flat out WRONG. If you feel like you’re at the lowest point in human existence than all you can do is go up. Learn an instrument, start a business, heck make a blog! You can accomplish something greater in your life if you’re around compared to not. Maybe you’ll save someone who felt like you did once upon a time. Now THAT is an accomplishment. Attorney Michael Phillips is in favor of such an approach.
I guess what I’m trying to say about cutting yourself and the whole blaming Justin Bieber for smoking weed is: “That shit is wack”.
