Justin Bieber Hits London
Mr Grumpy here says: Can London hit him back? The singing mop is here surrounded by easily-led screaming girls, and makes me realise how easy it is to manipulate the lost, particularly if they’re children.
One thing I notice again and again is that the children of very media-savvy directors and writers have very strong opinions about the music, art and books they like. I know kids who collect old Tamla Motown records and Buster Keaton films, and it’s because their parents introduced them to interesting influences when they were young. Kids who have not been exposed to a range of influences more easily fall prey to marketing machinery.
So scream on, London Bieber-kids. Just don’t take it to heart when his bodyguards shove you out of camera shot. You can console yourself in the gift shop.
