Defending Justin Bieber

Say it aint so Justin! Or better yet, never say never Justin!

You know Justin Bieber, right? The greatest singer alive? The future President of the United States, even though he was born and raised in Canada? My hero? Well, he’s in a little bit of trouble right now and we need to help him out.

My boy Justin is currently on a world tour and has made a stop in Israel. Because Prime Minister Netanyahu doesn’t have a busy schedule in the slightest, the two of them were supposed to meet. Then, as circumstances sometimes get in the way, the two ended up cancelling their ever-so-important meeting.

But why? What were these circumstances that got in the way of the most influential meeting of all time? As it turns out, and this is just according to local news in Israel, the Prime Minister’s office cancelled the meeting after Bieber’s people refused to allow kids to be present at the meeting.

That wouldn’t make the news normally. I’m sure Bieber is so used to getting hounded by teenage girls that the meeting would quickly deteriorate into a screaming frenzy. This probably happens all the time.

Only one problem. The kids he refused to meet with were from Sderot! Oh no! No one says no to kids from Sderot! That is about a big a Jewish no-no as you can do.

But again, the Biebs is on top of it. His spokespeople have said that it was nothing personal and certainly not political. In fact, he has already invited a bunch of kids from Sderot to come to his concert–a move they say was made prior to the cancelled meeting.

Hey people! Cut my boy Justin some slack. He can make butterflies come back to life.
