Before we begin talking about this outfit, I want to tell you guys that I just watched Justin’s newly released What Do You Mean? video, and it feels so weird seeing him objectify himself and penetrate a girl (okay, there is no actual penetration in the video, but penetration is what it tries to communicate). I know he has grown up and stuff and so it’s very unreasonable of me to expect him to be the same young and innocent boy who sings Baby and not have sex and do drugs, but for reasons I can’t articulate I’m still stuck with his baby-ish image.
Anyway, above is what he wore to the VMAs, and it’s sort of making me confused. The outfit is stylish and wearable and right up my street and if I had to vote it would be one of the best outfits of the night. BUT…I do NOT feel like this is him at all, style-wise; Justin Beiber and Saint Laurent have never mixed in my mind. (FYI, in my mind it has always been Justin and Balmain.) I just feel like with this look he has strayed too far from who he really is. And let’s not broach the subject of his hairstyle/extension because whichever angle you look at it it’s still downright horrible.
