Re: Why do so many people hate Justin Bieber?
Strange at how people rally so vehemently against the likes of Bieber being marketing tools shoved down their throats, and make a stand by... listening to the major label artists a few places down the charts from them?
Face it, all music is marketed and sold to you in some sort of way, whether it's my band selling merch or Lady Gaga's label spending millions on promoting her new record. If you want to draw a line then feel free, but don't act superior to a kid liking Bieber because they've been 'brainwashed' or whatever, when you're listening to Ocean or Swift or another hugely promoted musician you just happen to feel is more real.
It's all bullshit, listen to the music you like, ignore the music you don't, and if you happen to hear it on the radio or TV and it actually makes you angry, seriously re-evaluate some shit. That's not healthy.
