Those times when Justin Bieber really needed to be less weird with women
We shouldn't be surprised that Justin Bieber tried to Insta-stalk a gym employee by messaging her workplace to find out her identity. He's had a long history of being just a little bit weird when it comes to women.
And even though training coach Jessica Gober royally shot him down, if his track record suggests anything it's not likely he's going to stop. So here are a few times when the pop bopper lacked a little self-awareness.
1. Using a spotlight to pick up chicks
Bringing a new meaning to the phrase "a deer trapped in the headlights", Bieber likes to choose his prey by flashing spotlights on them in clubs.
The pint-sized popstar caused controversy when reports emerged he uses a torch to find women to take home after a night on the town. His entourage then surrounds the woman, informing her of the Bieb's intentions. A source close to the star it shrugged off: "They don't seem to mind."
2. And Instagram….
It could have been Cinderella-esque... but it really just came across a bit, well, stalkerish.
In December 2015, Bieber regrammed a photo of a total stranger, babysitter Cindy Kimberly. He asked the world, "OMG, who is this?"
It prompted a worldwide manhunt to find the 17-year-old. Luckily, it had a fairy tale ending - landing her a gazillion followers, job offers and 5 mins of insta-fame.
3. And Facebook…
In an even weirder use of social media, while in Prague in 2016 the star reportedly advertised for girls to entertain him.
The ad was sent out on Facebook by a local modelling agency, who asked for eight "well-behaved and English-speaking" women to join Justin at a post-concert after party. The Daily Mail reported six girls went along, however they took to social media afterwards to deny any sexual contact with the star.
4. That time he visited the Anne Frank memorial
Remember in 2013 when Justin Bieber had just begun his evolution into top pop brat? While in Holland, he paid a visit to the Anne Frank house and treated it with the utmost gravity. He spent an hour there and wrote in the guest book: "Anne Frank was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber."
Although perhaps the memorial was a little bit beyond the range of a man who explains theology with Taco references.
5. Commenting on women's rights in Rolling Stone
When Rolling Stone asked him for his opinion on abortion he said, "I really don't believe in abortion. It's like killing a baby."
When commenting on abortion in the case of rape, he said. "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."
OK to be fair, he was 16 at the time. But that's not to say that he should have known better. Or at least thought a little more before putting his opinions in print.
