Because no one said life was fair.
After spending the past year acting like Richie Rich with a snapback and anger issues (but still managing to bank $80 million), Justin Bieber is back in the studio, and he’s brought in the big guns. Yesterday his manager Scooter Braun posted a photo of Biebz huddling up to super-producer Rick Rubin, the man who brought a guiding hand to Yeezus and who’s been part of some of the most important rock and hip hop albums of the past 30 years.
Bieber’s last release, 2013’s Journals, was a compilation of one-off releases including collaborations with the likes of Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne – and not bad at all. More recently, he threatened to go deep house.
