Canadian music suffers

Ringo Star & Justin Bieber

In the past, Canada has put forward a lot of great musicians like Celine Dion, David Foster, Alanis Morrissette, Bryan Adams, k.d. lang, Luba, Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan, Barenaked Ladies, Tragically Hip, Neil Young, Ashley MacIsaac, Randy and Tal Bachman, and the list goes on and on. Click the link above to visit the Wikipedia list. It’s pretty amazing.

Today, we present the modern equivalent. Justin Bieber.

What’s a Justin Bieber? You ask? He’s a 16 year old kid from Stratford, Ontario (read: nowhere) and he taught himself how to play the piano, drums, guitar, and trumpet. In 2007 his mom started whoring him out posting videos on YouTube of him performing songs by Usher, Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder.

He’s a tiny little boy who’s talent will probably only last until he hits puberty, but for the time being he’s making teenage girls “swoon” (we’ll call it that for the sake of propriety) all over the place. Ok, I admit, I think he’s relatively adorable, but that swoop of hair across his face is annoyingly cutsie and I just find him generally annoying.

Sadly, this is the current state of Canadian musical talent export. Feel free to check him out at his official site if you wanna be “current” in Canadian “music.”

Dear America. Back-atcha. Canada.

    You know, I was going to say “what about…” in addition to little Mr. Lipsync here, but I can’t think of anyone as pre-packaged and plastic. If anyone cones to mind, I’ll let you know!

    I cannot stand Justin Bieber. Perhaps its the fact that he’s twelve and has little talent and he is rich. I don’t know, it makes me mad to think that so many people are obsessive about him.

    Thanks for your comments ‘Ashley’ if that is your real name.

    This was posted in the “Just For Yucks” category and is intended as some degree of humor. Obviously I missed the mark for you. I also meant no disrespect to Mrs Bieber.

    And for the record, had I been blogging when Celine hit the scene, you would have read a LOT more comments about her “talent.”
