Hell may hath frozen over, guys, because it looks like Justin Bieber may be changing his ways. Emphasis on may. The pop star/menace to society recently posted a photo of himself alongside a gorilla statue to Instagram, with the accompanying caption, "No more monkey business :p." His "look at what a bad ass I am" pose and the ":p" don't really make things look too promising, but this is at least a step in the right direction!
Since Bieber's recent DUI, he's remained relatively quiet. Perhaps it's because he's since taken up residence in a spaceship-esque mansion in Atlanta, away from the temptations of Hollywood; or perhaps it's because he really is trying to get his sh*t together. Or perhaps it's because of the fact that Justin was humiliated when his image appeared on a billboard for the US vs. Canada Olympic hockey game, along with the joke: "Loser Keeps Bieber." Awk-ward.
At this point, I'm going to hold off on the hope that JB is getting back on the straight and narrow and focusing on his music (kind of). Because before his monkey Instagram post, Justin released a new song to the public on Friday called "Broken," so hey, another good sign! The only bad part? The lyrics say: "They're persistent, trying to break me down / I cannot be broken ... They can’t take what’s mine / Someone like me is hard to find ... So keep on chasing that 458 / Got that cruise on the smooth highway / I ain’t even tryna get away (I’m good) ..." So, yeah. We'll see.
Whatever, guys. All we can do at this point is hope for the best and expect the worst. This guy's loco.
Do you think Justin is getting it together?
