In the past few months, we have been all about the Renaissance of Justin Bieber. We loved the great tracks he was putting out. We were endeared by his late night interviews. We believed him when he told us he was sorry (both in spoken and in song form). We were finally ready for Canada’s golden boy to, well, be golden again.
But now, it seems that the pop sensation is unraveling. Over the course of less than seven days, he’s basically tanked all the hard work he’s done repairing his rep. Bieber has been making headlines almost daily — and not for the right reasons.
Last Wednesday, he walked out mid-interview while visiting a radio show in Spain. On Friday, he abandoned the stage in the middle of performance in Norway. His latest antics show him stopping a performance to tell the audience to clap on beat.

His last release from Purpose unexpectedly dropped yesterday. It’s titled I’ll Show You and explores a darker, more mature and introspective Bieber. The lyrics seek sympathy from the listener and attempt to reinforce the public image he’s been trying (and failing) to clean up.
Cause life’s not easy, I’m not made out of steel
Don’t forget that I’m human, don’t forget that I’m real
Act like you know me, but you never will
There’s one thing that I know for sure
I’ll show you
He says he’ll show us, but will anyone be watching?
His “It’s hard to be famous” excuse might have garnered empathy from us in the past, and it is a valid explanation for the way he’s previously acted — but not this time. On Instagram, he blamed his childish meltdown in Oslo on a “rough week” and “no sleep”.
Sadly it's Been a rough week for me, long days no sleep, while having to be "on" as they would say for cameras fans etc. In no way did I mean to come across mean, but chose to end the show as the people in the front row would not listen. Hopefully people will understand where I am coming from. I don't always handle things the right way but I'm human and I'm working on getting better at responding not reacting. Unfortunately people were affected by this as am I. For the people in the back I am so sorry and for anyone I may have disappointed im sorry. Sorry for wasting the tv people's time I'll be sure to make it up to you next time on tour.. With love Justin.
His constant screw-ups make us feel like a too-forgiving girlfriend who just doesn’t have it in her to dump her crappy boyfriend. At this point, we’re not even sure it’s possible for Justin to change the public’s perception of him. It’s disappointing, because we do really want him to succeed.
The Biebs has gotten pretty good at apologies, but next time, maybe we won’t want to hear it. Unless of course, it’s an infectious dance bop, (but we don’t think he can do that twice).
