Sixteen-year-old Justin Bieber is rich, famous and has a haircut that makes
him look like Janet Leigh. Naturally, this look has caught on among
America's vain, trendy men, most notably with New England Patriots
quarterback Tom Brady, whose attempt at Bieber bangs (although we
personally think his inspiration is Pink
from Dazed and Confused) has emerged as one of the commented-upon subplots
of the 2010 NFL season. Bieber himself addressed
the controversy with a new YouTube rap—yes, rap. It seems the tiny
Canadian isn't happy with the greatest quarterback of his generation
ripping off his look.
"Call up Mr. Brady," snarls
Bieber," "tell him leave his hair to the guy who sings Baby."
Herald Patriots beat reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted the
quarterback was "dumbfounded" when informed of the emerging Bieber beef.
not as dumbfounded as he would have been had he listened to Bieber's
rap performance in its entirety, specifically the wee Canadian's assertion
that he is "a raptor, tearing it up like a tractor."
