Justin Bieber is a pretty cool guy.

“I feel like the Kurt Cobain of my generation, but people just don’t understand me,” - Justin Bieber

Now when I saw this post I immediately questioned its credibility but then saw it mentioned in printed articles like the one in vanityfair. Now I am not one to just take this hint of credibility and run with it but lets consider this for a minute. Justin Bieber, a kid with a fanbase consisting of little more than preteen girls couldn't possibly think so highly of himself. Honestly, I am not a huge Nirvana fan but I can certainly appreciate their music much more than some autotuned melody.

In a VF article Bieber goes on claiming, “People write to me and say, ‘I’m giving up, you’re not talking to me.’ I just write them a simple message like, ‘Never give up,' you know? And it changes their life.”

Really? It appears that Bieber is the Cobain-Kennedy incarnate with that sort of motivational power.

Bieber is either the greatest troll of all time or a contender for ego of the century, a title held by Sir Kanye West.
