Here's The Conclusive Proof That Justin Bieber Has Completely Slayed Since His Last Birthday
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, PEOPLE
If you checked the news on Justin Bieber’s birthday this time last year, the top photo was the mug-shot from his 2014 arrest, the top article was about him cruising around in a 65 Lincoln Continental, which he gifted to himself and the tone of most headlines was, to say the least, that he’s kind of a d**k.
This year though, top of the news is about him meeting and personally high-fiving the entire NHS Choir who beat him to Christmas number 1, taking the time to hang with fans on his holiday and the tone of most headlines is that, you know what, Bieber is actually alright isn’t he?!
With this in mind we compared the top news story (according to google), month by month for Biebs over the course of the year leading up to his 21st birthday and the year leading up to his 22nd. The results are conclusive; Bieber has COMPLETELY turned it around.
