We really thought about doing this post as nothing else but reworked lyrics to "Rose's Turn" from Stephen Sondheim's Gypsy but decided against it, because as it turns out, we aren't that talented at parody songs (and "Rose's Turn" is a classic that shouldn't be messed with). But, seriously, it must be a pretty great time to be Justin Bieber. The Biebs stopped by the Think It Up telethon (a fundraiser to raise awareness for education) which already scores him points in our books. Education is important as is education funding, and Justin Bieber doesn't have to take the time to help raise money for an important cause but he did and so we give him props for that. And he performed his new smash hit, "What Do You Mean," and we've talked before about how parts of that song are super problematic, but let's be honest, Bieber crushed it on that stage. Everything's coming up, Biebs. I guess we couldn't stop ourselves from making the Sondheim jokes.
