Earlier this week when Justin Bieber said his laptop had been stolen at a show in Tacoma I believed it. You know why? Because I’ve been to Tacoma.
Turns out, the whole thing was a publicity stunt to release his new
Just Dance commercial video “Beauty And A Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj.
A Twitter user calling themselves “gexwy” Tweeted Bieber telling him in a ransom style message that he would post something from the stolen laptop at noon on Friday.
Justin’s original message to gexwy was, “no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it.#toostrong”
And of course it was just this stupid video, which is basically the name of the very iconic 1981 Go-Go’s album Beauty and the Beat. Amazing that you can type in “Beauty and the Beat Wiki” into Google and Bieber’s song comes up first.
Not sure what’s going on with the kid lately, his entire Believe tracklist seems to be made up of song titles that already exist.
Bieber is not great at stolen laptop pranks but great at stealing song/album titles from The Go-Go’s, U2, Cutting Crew and Backstreet Boys.
