Makes you think doesn't it - not Bieber, just the money he makes,
This review is from: Justin Bieber: Never Say Never [DVD] (DVD)It's a depressing world we live in when you take a look past preference and taste and just look unreservedly at the music industry. It's a world where those who try, write their music and lyrics, release it and play something meaningful and not accessible to everyone are thrown out of the public eyes and instead we have the hollow, the Pop stars who make girls scream, who make money like no tomorrow and tell stories of their struggle where in fact, they're just like us, but with millions more cash and are, even if we're too blind to see it, better because they are the puppets of the industry that extrapolates the Hell out of their appeal, drains them dead and leaves them for their own path when exerted and all the while they have the whole world listening to them. And then there's Justin Bieber, another in a long line of mortal individuals who burn bright for a crowd and then will, inevitably fall without remembrance.
And so we get the movie, another in an equally long line of stories about a teenager's rise to fame and how he just wants to be a normal teenager whilst the music industry pumps every dime they can out of him. It's been done before and sometimes I wonder in all honesty, doesn't anyone see a pattern in the lives of Pop stars? Rise in popularity and charts, then fall and they're never heard of again because more have come to replace them in the tabloids headlines. Nobody see it? The movie, a documentary if that kind of a label of media could stoop this low down is basically the rise of someone that greed could use to make cash with a kind of cuteness factor that was just enough. Is this a movie about Bieber or the million dollar publicity machine behind him? In terms of style the movie is like Bieber's music, hollow, meaningless and over budgeted, 3D isn't helping and in cinema disoriented, thankfully here we don't have to go through with it. Meanwhile his praise is given on how great he is, he get duets with the equally talent-less and famous who got their way through similar, undeserved manners. And the struggle - he got a cold and his career could have ended there and then. For someone who relies on youth for popularity that end couldn't come sooner, if that's the worst thing that ever happens then look further, Pop alone has tragic deaths in it, beyond that, death, abuse, media expose, heartbreak, you name it, somewhere in music Bieber has got it lucky and has never felt desperation. Yes he gets the hate of the mature, but celebrities get it, the media makes sure of it, the internet too. It's what it does best.
At the end of the day we have Bieber with a mortal career and we have a boy who has been coined and invested in, he's loved by millions and hated by equal numbers. And for those who say give him a chance or music is a matter of taste, one day you may see - he sang what sold and that made him famous, and what he sang about has no meaning in a world that needs help whilst many turn off to see something less desperate. Bieber may just be one teenager living a dream, then it's the most hollow dream I've seen.

good review man, its refreshing to hear others who see this hollow empty money making puppet for what he is. There is a song called Corporate Cloning by Fear Factory which reflects the problem with money making idols who fall, and then replaced.
Katy perry, another hollow talentless cretin frenzied by the media, is also made a movie about her life. Its so pathetic why pop stars are all doing this, and even more pathetic that so many fans (mostly under-aged idiotic girls who cant think) are brainwashed into this and when someone tries to explain the truth, that its all about money, they just whine and tell you to shut up.
Seeing other people agree with me actually gives me some hope for the future generation

Riffan is, as our British cousins say, "spot on". The
most amazing thing is how gullible teens are, and
how much cash is been thrown away on such teen
rubbish. Some professional musicians ( and I was one)
refer to this as "disposible music". Exactly. The concept that some music (think Gershwin, Cole Porter,
Sondheim, Berlin, Rodgers, and many more) never
really goes out of style is an odd concept to some
young people I've spoken with. Some of the youth
have discovered classic songs and performers by
way of Youtube, and have commented favorably
on them. The situation isn't all hopeless. The music
here will shortly become as dated as last week's
newspaper. One reason I'm not buying it. Greetings
from the USA.

Bieber isnt a musician, he is a performer, and a product, branded to appeal to little girls the most immature and irrelevant people on the planet. Corporation look over the vast playground with kids and mainly little girls, staring over them with dollar signs flashing in their eyes and a sinister grin.
Its funny how the internet created this 'boy' and the internet is also trying to claim him and burn him to the ground. The only thing he can put the puppy dog eyes on for and try to get pity for is the amount of hate he has, all the other sob tales in this crap movie are just a part of the product, that little girls have fallen so easily for
