What Hath Paul McCartney Wrought?


I blame Paul McCartney for Bieber Mania. I used to blame Zac Efron, but now I recognize The Bieb's unintentionally parodic mop for what it truly is: but one element stolen by tween svenghali Usher from The Beatles' pop music playbook.

Too bad Usher failed to read the chapters on charisma and basic language skills.

my g/f used to rock the cutest McCartney-esque 'do, but Beibs ruined it :( now she wears it a little shorter and also adorably, but I miss the sideswept action!

Oh my word, the boy is cute like a Muppet creation, but he cannot sing.

Gah! You are right on the money here. I was just reminiscing with my grade school best friend about our celebrity crushes back in the day. She loved Shaun Cassidy; I was a John Travolta fan. Bet we don't see *that* hair appearing on any of kiddies any time soon.

i used to have a cut not unlike this .... but the side swept part was more Flock of Seagulls than Beatles

A song came on the radio in the lunchroom and I asked my (much younger) co-worker:

"Is this that Taylor Swift everyone talks about?"

He looked at me like I was a loon and said,

"No, this is Justin Bieber!"

Whatever, dude. I'm 32.
