Which makes this the first time in recent memory that the words “hard-working” and “upstanding” were used to describe Justin Bieber. Last week, Justin Bieber dramatically collapsed onto his Marshmallow flip-open sofa and declared that he’d no longer be doing VIP meet-and-greets with fans during his Purpose tour because it was too emotionally draining. Unfortunately, people who paid $2,000 for a meet-and-greet were told they would not be getting a refund on unless they also gave up their ticket. So they came to a compromise; for $2,000, they could all stand in the same room as Justin.
As it turns out, standing in a room was also too much work for Justin. According to The Mirror (via NME), fans who paid $2,000 to meet-and-greet Justin at his shows in Las Vegas last weekend got to meet-and-greet a life-sized cardboard cutout instead. However, Justin did manage to get in one in-person VIP meet-and-greet last weekend, with Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet.
However did a lucky fan like Wayne Gretzky manage to score a meet-and-greet with the elusive Justin “No More Pictures” Bieber? TMZ says that unless you’re one of Justin’s friends or a famous person, your chance of meeting-and-greeting Justin Bieber are about as thin as the teen ‘stache on his upper lip. So basically, if you paid $2,000 to meet Bieber, you’re probably going to get the 100% recyclable equivalent. But if it makes you feel any better, meeting a vacant, unresponsive cutout of Justin Bieber is pretty damn close to meeting the real thing.
Speaking of hanging out with famous people. Here’s Justin Bieber hanging out at a club in Las Vegas with DJ David Guetta after one of Bieber’s shows last weekend, as well as Justin looking like meth-warmed-over while leaving a club in Hollywood last night.
