I never quite had any problem with Bieber, primarily because I'm not his intended audience in the first place, so basically I'm not interested in him. I don't understand why so many people, many of whom I suppose are adults, seem to love to hate him. Also, I wouldn't expect a kid to behave politely when he/she is thrown in front of a bunch of paparazzi. However, I'm not sure about his drug use.

By the way, what happened to the also-rumored guest appearance of D'Angelo and Mary J Blige?

Bieber is not a bad guy. He's just a brat. He's like the "Ha Ha" kid in the Simpsons, just entitlement and not having any clear sense of right and wrong.

I liked some of his music, especially the Believe album. But it's sad, if he destroyed his own career through his own foolishness. Maybe he should have been signed later, when he had outgrown all of the childish tendencies that he has?

He's had a ridiculous haircut for a while, but I'm not throwing stones. Michael and Prince were "weird" in the 80's, and I've always liked them.

What's with all the hate for Justin Bieber. Were you guys ever young once? Did you ever do stuff that was foolish? This is what young people do--but most of us aren't followed around by the tabs and paps who put everything put in the public eye and pass the harshest judgment so that hate has a target. There is no reason to hate this kid. You don't want him around MJ songs--fine--but I think the hate has gone too far.

Full disclosure--I did stuff as a kid--even breaking the law--that I would not want everyone to know about and trash me about.One tidbit--me and a friend took dad's car while parents were asleep and drove it around town--no driver's licenses of course. That happened twice.

Has JB killed anyone? I do not get the hate here.

Except, when you get caught for doing something once (The whole lean thing), and then apologize. And then just get photographed with more, and recorded singing songs about "lean" and how it makes you feel, it's no longer a mistake. And you don't care for the advice people attempt to give in regards to your life and career. At that point, you don't deserve to be cuddled and consoled.


It's not even that though. Justin Bieber just isn't a good enough artists, in the eyes of many, to be put on a record with Michael Jackson.

I am glad to hear this, not because I have any particular opinion of Justin Bieber but because I just think it's not the right thing to do. After all, he showed pure arrogance in leaking that version of STTR without even having necessary consent, why reward that foolishness with something that a lot of artists would be truly honoured by.

Good.
L.A Reid thought he could use MJ to promote his artist-wannabe protégée Justin Bieber.
The reason for that is just soooo disrepectful to MJ.

That's a relief to hear. At this point in what is left of Bieber's career (through his own destruction) he doesn't need to be anywhere near MJ.

So do people not like Justin Bieber then? I mean as a person.

Personally, I've been hearing people badmouth him for years now and I've yet to see a good reason for it.

Now whether I want him on a Michael Jackson song/performance or not is a different matter, that has nothing to do with who he is as a person. He is a Michael fan and respects Michael, that was always going to be a great start.

I don't particuarly dislike Bieber's music. I think some of it is good, some of it is bad, and some of it is just okay. I listened to his last album (2013), and thought it was good, and I loved Believe.

But I just can't support what he does as a person with his music. A perfect example is Prince Rogers Nelson. Prince is kind of an asshat at times, but he's such a genius that I can excuse it. Bieber hasn't proven that he can be respected as a musician when he's acting like a tool, he's not that good.

He keeps tweeting about the remix. This is coming and I believe due to the contract, the hologram will be in a music video with him in it.

Think about it. The contract has a music video in it. Bieber had been recently shooting something involving a green screen. LA Reid recently said it's still happening and Bieber's team who run his twitter frequently tweet about it. I wouldn't be surprised at all after the song was introduced to everyone in such a grand manner with the hologram.

A hologram that does not resemble Michael singing alongside Justin Bieber!

Just when you think it can't get any worse..

Message to the estate,

Not only can you keep Bieber away from any future MJ projects, you can scrap that P.O.S. hologram/impersonator too. Put all of it away along side the Cascio tracks.

Thank you

Sincerely,

A concerned and pissed off fan.

As far as I know Justin is going to release a new song soon so there’ll be a video … I can be wrong but I’ve read something like that on Twitter.

It's not a hologram.

Thank the lord for this, and MJ/JB 'duet' would rid me of all the enjoyment the Xscape album has brought me so far.

Any partner has to be somewhat comparable to MJ, no-one can equal, but some are at least on the same page (Timberlake, Mars, Beyonce to name three - maybe the only three).

Beiber is not only not on the same page but is in a completely different library. 100,000 miles away.
