Jusin Bieber's manager makes lemonade

Scooter Braun has a thankless task; trying to take bipedial oxygen squanderer Justin Bieber and make him into an artist who people may even kind-of like.

Braun thinks he's up to it, though, and he's busily talking him up:

In his words, 'It’s like Bob Dylan: He pissed people off, but whenever he switched, he reinvented himself in a way that made him who he is today.”
Well, yes. The only thing that separates Bieber from the prospect of a long career of reinvention like Dylan's is that Dylan's reinventions were from acoustic to electric; or from sceptic to Christian. Bieber's reinvention cycle so far seems to involve turning his baseball cap around a little.

Still, good luck Scooter.

Looks like it isn't only Bieber who's got some work on growing up to do. Amazing how strangers decide they know the fate of a stranger.

I'm going to assume your post was heartfelt and not merely a way of spamming your overpriced land packages in Alaska business...

So, I know what you're trying to say, but your riposte actually doesn't make any sense. That Bieber is an incredibly lucky, but incredibly vapid, asshat isn't his fate; it doesn't even need to be his fate. But it is his image - and given all he has to sell is an image, it's fair to comment on that.

What you've effectively done is have someone look at, say, Letzring Lake; and when they say 'it looks a little prone to flooding', you reply 'it is amazing how people who don't live in a place decide they know the topographics of a place in which they don't live'. It's not, it's about commenting on something which we're being sold.

To put it in property terms: if you're selling 'Justin Bieber' as being a similar product category to Bob Dylan, you're selling Florida marshes as prime real estate.
