Justin Bieber Bad Boy Image a Good Thing?

JustinBieberForComplexMagazine01We’ve found it happen time and time again. The goodie goodie picture could be a death sentence to an approaching star’s profession. Donny Osmond is the poster boy for such a autumn, and ironically enough, Beiber’s appearances and high pitched voice have frequently been compared to the twelve year old heartthrob of the 70’s. When Osmond attempted to be taken seriously, and also to get an adult profession, he was shunned by the business, even going as far a to debut his tune, “Soldier of Love , because his name was toxin in the music business. The bad boy image attempted, but for him it was too late, he was well into his twenties.

For Bieber, who’s 19, this could be the perfect time to help make the change. However, what about Michael Jackson? It could have ended there, but with his ability also he climbed to acclaim as a child singer and establishing the standard for another generation of music, he managed to rise to the top. But did’t he do “Poor?”, tour and an album entitled While not condoning behaviour that can lead to harm to others or himself, somewhat bad press can go quite a distance. His new hairdo, his on again, off again relationship, and teen rebellion revealing him to be more than an adorable little boy and is keeping him. All of us know he’s the ability to go the distance, however he may garner a fresh audience that will take all the way to him.

There’s a fine line if he balances it right and that Bieber needs to walk, it might be the ticket to the very best. The other or leaning one way could be his death. I suppose time will tell the Lindsay Lohan train wreck or which way he goes …; the great small lost lad.
