The Evolution Of Justin Bieber

The Evolution Of Justin Bieber

Because, why not?

I have been a Belieber since the very beginning, and I am definitely not ashamed of it. How could I be? Justin Bieber started as the cutest boy (my biggest crush at the age of 12) to a handsome, talented young man. So he made a few stupid mistakes, so what? That definitely didn't stop me from supporting him. Not only did his age change, but his hair style changed, his style changed, his music changed, and it all came together to what he is today: a very lucky, wealthy and famous person. If you don't believe my observation of his evolution being truly mesmerizing, take a look for yourself...

2008: The beginning of the Bieber Era. This was the first time people really began to see Justin Bieber out in the open. After being discovered, he was quickly thrown into the fan-based obsession that would grow into "Bieber Fever".

2009: The Bieber side flip was in. It made an appearance in 2008, but this was when it began to hit all of the regular, pre-pubescent boys by storm. They all had this hair all they all claimed that they "hated" Justin Bieber. All of the girls saw right through them and their flipped hair.

2010: The Bieber hair flip has made it another year. However, this year it looks a bit more organized and styled. It's a little shorter. Instead of a hoodie, Justin has opted for a very nice bowtie ensemble and he looks very dapper. Still just a kid though.

2011: BAM. The Justin Bieber hair is GONE, just like that! Clearly, he looks like he is trying to grow up a bit and to rid himself of his "cute-boy, adorable" persona. However, at only 17 years old, he was still considered a baby in the public eye.

2012: And the hair gets higher. Not only is the Bieber side-swipe gone, but the hair is defying gravity at this point. The shift from 2011 Justin Bieber to 2012 Justin Bieber is a major one. He also seems to be dabbling in some new wardrobe styles: nothing too crazy, but something a little different. I can appreciate the attempt at fashion.

2013: This Justin Bieber is very similar to the 2012 Justin Bieber, just older. I'm not mad about it though. At 19 years old, he was looking good. Also, this was about the time he dropped off the face of the earth because of his rebellious stage. Whatever.

2014: Wow. Justin Bieber, back and looking better than ever. He is showing two full sleeves of tattoos, blatantly stating that he is not a child anymore. His gravity-defying hair is tamed and styled perfectly to suit his chiseled jawline. He gets a 10/10 on the attractive scale from me.

2015: Out with a new album with completely different sound, Justin Bieber is back in business. After his brief hiatus, it is nice to hear a fresh sound from him and even see a new look. Though his previous style was more my type, this one isn't awful. The wardrobe picks aren't my favorite, but who really cares about the outfit, honestly?

2016: Here we are. The head is shaved, he is on tour, he is back to the beginning (though much older than when he started). He has made it eight years so far, even with his brief period of issues. It looks like now he is trying to start fresh. Maybe the evolution will continue. I'm excited to see what's to come, but I definitely wouldn't be mad if he stayed looking like this, either.***

***The dread-lock phase was ignored for the sole reason that they were awful and did not reflect the proper evolutionary growth of Justin Bieber. It was an outlier that had to be excluded.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

Perfection Is The Downfall Of Humankind

If there's something about you that you don't like, you can always change or even embrace it.


While it may be difficult to admit, there are times where you don't exactly love yourself. It is important to remember that it happens to all of us on occasion, which may be even harder to believe.

All humans are bestowed with an innate desire to be "perfect." This is a very dangerous flaw that has been ingrained in us. It is vital to remember that the concept of "perfect" is subjective. Not only this but that achieving "perfection" is impossible. Once you think you've achieved the perfect body or hair or what have you, you will absolutely find something else about yourself that you don't like and then want to change. When you don't embrace what you naturally have, you will always be disappointed in yourself.

This problem with seeking perfection that we have directly stems from comparison. The very moment you start comparing yourself to others around you is when you become more critical. One person's strength can be seen as your weakness but that leads to a narrowed view of your strengths. Two people's great qualities aren't going to be the same. Neither are their respective weak qualities. These qualities can determine what you're passionate about or what you can contribute to society. People need to contribute different things for a more well-rounded humanity.

Accept what you can't change, and strive to better what you can change.
