This is a safe place, right? No judging here? I realize that I basically put my entire life on the internet for everyone to see/read/laugh at, but sometimes I just need to make sure. So no judging. Especially after what I am about to reveal...
I SAW THE JUSTIN BIEBER MOVIE.
Yup. I did. That’s my confession. But that’s not all...
I LOVED IT.
I’M A BELIEBER.
I GOT THE FEVER.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, this weekend I ventured out to the movie theater where I bought a RIDICULOUSLY expensive ticket to the 3D showing of NEVER SAY NEVER: The Justin Bieber Story. I honestly don’t even have an excuse, other than it was freezing cold and pouring rain in LA and I needed something to do.
So we went. A 25, 26, and 27 year old. And there we sat, for two hours, surrounded by screaming cheering fourteen year old girls who at one point LITERALLY started shrieking “JUSTIN I LOVE YOU!” in the middle of one of his performances. Not to mention the fact that GB was LITERALLY sitting next to a minuscule two year-old child, who was so excited by all the commotion that he started smacking his legs up and down, causing his LIGHT UP SNEAKERS to start flashing all over the place. She was like, “I feel like I’m actually at his concert.”
The best part of the movie? I learned that Bieber fans (my kinship now) hold their hands up to form a heart shape, which they wave in the air while he sings and dances his teenage heart out. I LOVE THIS. I’m thinking of adopting it for my own life. What do you all think, would you be willing to flash the heart sign at me as I walk down the street?
And do I even need to tell you that I sang his songs all the way home, then promptly ran to my computer and downloaded like four of them? No, I don’t think I do. As I type this, I am currently listening to NEVER SAY NEVER on repeat. My roommate is thrilled. (“Now you got it stuck in my head!” Direct quote.)
So there you have it. I am a Belieber. And proud of it, actually. That little gentleman with the gorgeous hair and soulful eyes can SING, yall. Do not be so quick to discredit him (or say that I’ve finally lost my shit completely). He is a gem and I kind of love him.
In other random yet exciting news, Jacob arrives today! He booked a spur-of-the-moment trip for general fun and merriment, including but not limited to Baby Boy Shabtay’s bris. I think he just wanted to be a part of the spectacle :)
I personally can’t wait to see him hold the baby!
