As per his Shots page, Justin Bieber
has been palling around with a bearded man, and captioned the pic, "With the man Rick." No last name was provided in the caption, however, early facial recognition testing is coming up positive for legendary Def Jam Recordings co-founder Rick Rubin. Rubin has produced for the likes of the Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, and Black Sabbath, so it's somewhat alarming seeing him in such close proximity to the Biebs.
All jokes aside, the two are in fact working together on Justin's new album, which sources tell TMZ
, Justin hopes to bring a more "urban" feel to. But hey, Rick Rubin is a hip-hop legend, and Justin Bieber sips lean; a match made in heaven? Perhaps. We're going to try and stay positive on this one.
Remember when THIS was Justin Bieber? Ha.
