So Justin Bieber has had to go on the defensive and, no, he's not defending his terrible 'music' or his ridiculously stupid haircut. No, the Beeb is defending the fact that MUCH has been made of his choice of attire when meeting the Prime Minister of Canada. If you haven't heard or seen, the Beeb was wearing a pair of overalls when meeting Canada's top official. This set off (an unnecessary) firestorm of criticism young Beeb for being disrespectful. To be fair, Canada's PM visited the Beeb at an arena where he was performing, so the Beeb was dressed for the show, not a meeting with the PM. Nevertheless, he looked very stupid. It happens to the best of us; we find ourselves in an uncomfortable situation because we over or underestimated where we were going or who we were meeting or what might be appropriate. Today we wanted to know: WHEN WERE YOU A FISH OUT OF WATER?
His wife found a place to rent for them and signed the lease. He had to drop off rent and discovered that his landlord(s) were the parents of his ex- girlfriend. They HATED him
Wearing a Yankees hat and jersey to Fenway Park... said it wasn't too bad, but bad enough
Was invited to a club, so he met his friend there and discovered that he was the only white guy there.
Playing pool with a bunch of strangers and made the comment that he needed a few beers to play better. The strangers were a group from Alcoholics Anonymous. Awkward
He and his wife were invited to the neighbors for a party. Turns out it was a swinger party and neither he nor his wife were swingers
Family reunion in Texas for his father's side. He'd only recently reconnected with his father, so he only knew 2 people there. Anyway, he showed up with gauged ears and a Papa Roach t- shirt. Seems that side of the family is "deeply" religious so it was awkward at first, but by the end of the night, they really liked him
Lots of stories of sports fans wearing the wrong team colors at the wrong place
SIT AND SPIN
Today is Jimi Hendrix's birthday. He'd be 70 years old... actually, he IS 70 years old, he's just not celebrating it. At any rate, we've celebrating for him at KISW by playing his tunes all day. Well, Jolene joined us for a Sit and Spin and brought us not just 10 Hendrix tunes, but the stories behind the songs. Click here for Jolene's take.
OK bitches, I'm outta here, but I'll be thinking of each and every one of you.
Until tomorrow, 'scuse me while I kiss the sky and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
