Beiber is just another vanilla ice flash in a pan star. He will be on drugs in trouble with police and probably die of an overdose. If not he will be doing episodes of worlds dumbest like leif garret,Todd bridges,Etc. I think hes a spoiled tard . I also think he would feel more comfortable in black skin.

miley cyrus is a little girl trying to act very grown up, like Lady gaga, and Madonna. She has no identity, nor talent, nor class.
