Justin Bieber has landed in hot water once again. It seems people in the UK are all riled up over the less than complimentary comments JB made about Prince William's hairÂ—or rather his lack thereof.
It all stared when Selena Gomez's "Boyfriend" mouthed offÂ—erÂ—gave the future King of England some unsolicited advice in an interview with Rollercoaster Magazine. As anyone with even close to normal eyesight can see, poor Prince William has a receding hairline and an actual bald spot. Biebs, who at the tender age of 18, has never experienced the problem of being follicly challenged commented on the heir to the throne's obvious problem.
"I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays," counselled Biebs, "like Propecia. I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products. You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?"
Those thoughtless comment have landed the Teen Dream smack in the middle of a savage backlash in the UK. Oops.
"The Brits are viewing Justin Bieber's diss about Prince William's challenging hair problem in the same way you view an annoying fly buzzing around you. He needs to be swatted away," commented one British journalist.
"Wills and Prince Harry may joke about William's thinning hair, but that doesn't mean a kid like Justin can come sauntering in and join in the joke," observed another. "It's like inviting someone over for dinner and they tell you how awful your carpet is. Even if you agree, how dare they say it? Wills may be thinning on top, but he is one cool royal and landed himself the hottest future queen [of] England has ever had. How can Justin and his girly hairstyle possibly compete with that? So the Biebs had better watch out!"
Even worse, it not just the people across the pond who are mad at JB for dissing Prince William's hair issues. Leigh Rossini, publicity director for Louis Licari Salons and Girlfriend Confidential reality show star, recently commented that Justn Bieber "should worry about his own haircut, instead of worrying about how a prince wears his hair!"
So there you have it. What else is there to say? Except that maybe Selena Gomez should explain to her man that honesty is not always the best policy. Sometimes it's best to keep mum.
Hang in there, JB.
