“Bieber Fever” has been all the craze. First the shaggy-haired boy started crooning tunes, then Usher hopped on board and declared Justin to be his “little brother,” and, of course, who can forget the Justin Bieber movie Never Say Never!
So with movie corporations and celebs alike joining the multi-million dollar Bieber Fever train, who’s opting out?
Lil Wayne, that’s who!
Even though Lil Wayne & co. (the team is commonly known as Young Money) are tight with Bieber, they want to help keep his image clean. Lil Wayne (also known as Wheezy), who has been arrested for use or possession of marijuana, has openly admitted (to Katie Couric, nonetheless!) a previous addiction to purple drank (a.k.a codeine cough syrup) and has been found in possession of an illegally registered weapon, doesn’t want to hurt Bieber’s good-boy image.
Personally, if Lil Wayne likes Bieber’s music, he should work with the kid. As an incredibly successful and famous rap artist, Wheezy can, perhaps, help Bieber’s career evolve from pop songs to something a little harder, maybe some rap-pop fusion even. That could be…cool. Maybe a little Rebecca Black-esque, with a rap segment in the middle of an annoyingly adolescent video, but definitely a step in a different direction, nonetheless.
Lovelies, what do you think? Should Lil Wayne turn down Bieber to help the kid maintain his good-boy image, or are personal life and musical talent completely separate entities? Would you listen to a Lil Wayne infused Bieber song?
