There is a difference between decidedly negative headlines and just plain weird headlines. For example: remember that time Justin Bieber allegedly spit on his neighbor? That’s an old fashioned negative headline. Remember that time Bieber was accused of fathering the child of a woman he never met? That was more of a weird headline. Over the past year or so, the Biebs has made a lot more of the former than the latter, but today, he took the plunge back into the eccentric with a tale involving nudity and his grandmother.
That’s right. The incident in question apparently went down last November in Toronto. The pop star was there alongside his family members to enjoy some catching up and to partake in a Thanksgiving feast. Unfortunately, the Biebs allegedly overslept by a longshot, and when he woke up and realized his mistake, he decided to head downstairs completely naked with a guitar strapped on to serenade his granny as a faux apology kind of deal. She apparently laughed pretty hard, as did other family members, but when TMZ ran pictures from the silly rendition earlier today, it produced a different reaction from many fans, mainly one of discomfort.
Ordinarily, I’m pretty open-minded when it comes to different family relationships. If it works for people and doesn’t hurt anybody, I’m typically a thumbs up. Consequently, it doesn’t really offend me that Bieber played guitar for his grandmother in the buff, but I gotta admit it does weird me out a little bit. For the life of me, I can’t imagine doing it in front of either of my grandmothers, and if the small sample size of everyone I’ve spoken to about the issue can be trusted, a very high percentage of people are dumbfounded by that level of openness too.
If you want to be an optimist, however, you could easily point to Bieber hanging out with his family on Thanksgiving as a positive. Being creepy with your grandmother is definitely a better call than completely avoiding your grandmother. The pop star has always preached a family first attitude, and while he lives quite a ways away from many of his closest relatives, it’s nice to see he does make an effort to get back and see them.
To get that weirdness out of your brain, here’s Bieber’s video for “Boyfriend”…
