Justin meeting Canada’s leader in overalls, NBD.
Justin Bieber just can’t seem to shake the bad news lately. We’re already woefully aware of his tough breakup (or makeup, depending on the day) with Selena Gomez, and Psy‘s “Gangnam Style” has just broken Justin’s record for the most-watched video on YouTube (though we’re sure he was gracious in giving up the crown) — but it’s like the guy just can’t catch a break! So when Justin met Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, you’d think it would be all good news all the time, right? WRONG, haters still came out of the woodwork (aka Twitter) to talk smack on Justin’s overalls. But you best believe, Justin was NOT going to take that overt overall criticism sitting down.
See more of Justin Bieber in overalls after the jump.
After receiving the Diamond Jubilee Medal from the prime minister (aka a HUGE DEAL) and performing, the two opted for a quick photo, which Bieber, embracing his overalls, captioned, “I met the prime minister in overalls lol.” Well, a bunch of people decided to jump on the Biebs for his attire, even though this pic was taken literally post-performance. (Because how is anyone really supposed to dance/perform/high kick on stage in a tux? Oh, wait…) Wasting no time, Justin addressed his haters on Instagram: “The pic of me and the prime minister was taken in a room in the arena where I was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet-and-greet to him, if you “Hayley” expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan a suit at that specific time that’s crazy.”
Respect, Justin. We’re on your side, as we always have been. Hey, even the prime minister himself made a joke, tweeting, “In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls, too.” So QUIT SWEATING, Justin haters. If his style choices are cool with the leader of his home country, they should be cool with us too. Besides, things could always get worse.
Justin def snapped this photo with a “hi haters” in mind.
