Justin Bieber Disagrees W/ Shawn Mendes’ Being Called ‘Prince Of Pop’ – ‘Gonna Have To Break A Few More Records To Dethrone My Title’
Justin Bieber made it clear he’s still the Prince of Pop… at least for now. While The Observer magazine crowned Shawn Mendes with the title in the latest issue of its magazine, Bieber said Mendes hasn’t earned it yet. Bieber commented on Shawn’s page:
“Hmm ” Gonna have to break a few more records to dethrone my title there bud (canadian voice).. but if you want we can play hockey for it but i heard your a real bender on the ice we could just drop the buckets and tilt for it.”
Bieber then cleared up his statement and reassured fans and critics he was only kidding.
“There is no competition and it was a playful joke people relax.. there’s no sides we’re all here to make dope music. I’m just as competitive as is he so it was just a little playful jargon”
It looks like Mendes is letting Bieber do all the talking. He hasn’t responded yet.
Even though Bieber took time to defend his title, he revealed earlier this month that he’s always taking a break from music.
“So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album. I’ve toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don’t deserve that and you don’t deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.”
“I have been looking, seeking, trial and error as most of us do, I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be.”
Still, he told fans that he would be back better than ever.
“Music is very important to me but Nothing comes before my family and my health. I will come with a kick ass album ASAP, my swag is undeniable and my drive is indescribable his love is supernatural his grace is that reliable…. the top is where I reside period whether I make music or not the king said so. ? but I will come with a vengeance believe that.”
