Miley vs Bieber. Stud-shaming – Sunday Times Style Column

Somewhere, right now, I expect Vanilla Ice is writing an open letter to Justin Bieber, warning him that he is being sexually exploited by the music industry, and advising Biebs that going topless is disempowering him, obscuring his talent and prostituting his puny boy body. I imagine Justin Timberlake is about to intervene on Twitter to try and save Bieber from impending pornification. And 50 Cent is penning an op-ed for Rolling Stone to highlight how Bieber’s tats suggest he has bought into a monetised form of self-harm.

If Sinead O’Connor, Annie Lennox, Cher, Cyndi Lauper et al are about done slut-shaming Miley Cyrus with their “motherly advice”, isn’t it time for the grandads of pop to step up and the stud-shaming of Bieber to begin? Because if we’re worried about the reinvention of Hannah Montana as a foam-finger twerking tartlet, we should be petrified by how ratchet Bieber has become.

In five short years, Biebs has morphed from a halo-haired child star into a swaggering pop brat with Jimmy Savile’s taste in clothes. His proclivity for baring as much nubile flesh as possible means he hasn’t been seen in a top since 2010. Instead, now his on- and off-stage uniform consists of nothing more than a tender, hairless torso accessorised by an ever-slipping pair of drop-crotch pants. He spends music videos gyrating half-naked, dribbling after Victoria’s Secret models, or climbing the Great Wall of China only to start air-humping petrified Chinese kids. His Twitter feed is peppered with topless shots of him smirking at the camera, abs tensed like he is constipated. When he is not peeing in mop buckets, spitting on fans, dissing Bill Clinton and allegedly getting stoned, he’s getting naked to serenade his gran.

Surely it’s time Rod Stewart said something? Isn’t Gary Barlow worried that Biebs’s skimpy outfits undermine his professionalism? Couldn’t Robbie Williams stage an intervention on his blog? Given Annie Lennox’s fears that Miley is tempting young fans into porn, isn’t Dave Stewart concerned that Bieber’s thrusting pelvis could bring back the Chippendales? Won’t Liam Gallagher start a campaign addressing how his sons feel pressured into emulating El Biebo’s sexy schoolboy look?

“You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal,” O’Connor told Miley. “You don’t need to let the music business make a prostitute of you.” Does Timbaland give Bieber the same advice?

In public, so far, only one person has been brave enough to speak out. “I’ve been doing this shit for a long time,” they said, shaking their head at Bieber’s exposed booty. “I just don’t want to see him f*** that up… I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke. When you go out, don’t start shit. Don’t come in shirtless.’ ” Justin hasn’t responded to Miley’s warning yet.

    Hi Katie,   I noticed you article in the Sunday Times supplement last weekend, and commented on your post about the social media generation (pseudonym “Ben”).   I find your no-bullshit attitude very endearing and encouraging in this era of Politically Correct poison.   I write quite a lot myself… asides from my day job (in F1 racing) my evening and weekend project/business is developing as a bona fide “Internet Marketer”, specialising in coaching/training, and delivered through digital programmes.   Thanks   Kind regards   Ian
