The Evolution Of Justin Bieber

Because, why not?

The Evolution Of Justin Bieber
Huffington Post

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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
