Pop Stars, Haters, and Justin Bieber.

Okay, so you may or may not know Justin Bieber is one of the most popular teen artists in the music world right now, and like many other stars before him, Justin has has haters. I know what you're thinking, "Oh haters, what else is new?" I thought the same thing when I saw the J-14 article on his "Nasty Haters". Now, of course, I was expecting the usual "his voice sucks" and "he sounds like a girl" like so many people say about anyone getting attention for their talent, but what I wasn't prepared for was the really very scary things people have to say, all sorts of death threats and rumors of things like Justin committing suicide. It really got me thinking about the reasons behind these people's hostility.

Now obviously, Justin isn't dead, and he didn't fake breaking his foot, but most importantly, in the middle of all the hate, he isn't fighting back. I'm sure the slams on his music, voice, and him himself get a little old, and certainly frustrating, but he never feels the need to stand up for himself. Really, why would you when you have so many adoring fans, hit songs, and you're currently living your dream every day.

So, why do people hate on Justin Bieber and other people like Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, and Taylor Swift? Because these people are doing something with their talents. People who haven't discovered their talent, and people who don't know how to follow their dreams choose to destroy people who can. It's not right, and they shouldn't do it. Hating isn't going to change anything. For example, Justin has millions of fans all over the world. Telling people you don't like him won't change that. Just guessing, but Justin doesn't probably doesn't like his haters much either, and he isn't telling the world that their voices are terrible.
