If you have a Twitter account, much like a do, you probably saw a rather comedically clad celebrity appear on your timeline quite often last night. This was all taking place during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers.
I didn’t get the opportunity to watch the game. Well, maybe I should be more brutally honest with that statement. I had absolutely no care in the world to watch the game, so I didn’t. Having said that, I’m sure someone can confirm or deny that TNT must have had a field day with the aforementioned comedically clad celebrity.
I realize the game was played in Miami, yes. I realize a lot of the allure of Miami is South Beach as well. Just ask Lebron James where he took his talents to. I also realize that with South Beach comes celebrity and glitz and glamour.
Justin Bieber took it to a whole new level last night. Hell, just look at the picture at the top of this column. That should tell you everything you need to know. A leather (or pleather if you please) shirt, sunglasses inside at night, and the craziest flat-brimmed Miami Heat hat I think I have ever laid my eyes upon. And just to throw a little more fuel on the fire, was a ‘Thunder Cats’ fan at some point in time (look at that tattoo).
Is there any wonder now why Selena Gomez wants nothing to do with the Biebs? But I digress. Maybe the most interesting thing to come out of this “situation” last night isn’t so much Bieber’s garb, as the team he was supporting on his head.
Wasn’t it just back in December when he proclaimed his undying love of the Los Angeles Lakers? What happened. Biebs? At least tell us Lebron hooked you up with those tight seats courtside. That has to be it, right?
And, wasn’t it just back in 2010, Bieber was posing with his Lakers garb, with a big ol’ gold ring on his hand? Laker fans, any comment?
Looks like every little girl’s teenage heart throb (*vomit*) is a ring chaser. How many game lead will San Antonio have to get in the Finals before we ultimately see him courtside at the AT&T Center in black and silver with a Spurs hat on?
Come on, Justin, you can do better than that. Or can you? After all, you are from the same country as the city of Vancouver. And we all remember what happened after the Stanly Cup a couples years back.
