When you're a teen idol your freakishly protective fans will ensure that you can throw on any get-up and still be beloved. With that in mind, the Biebs is taking the mickey at this stage.
The Canadian crooner/Hilary Swank in Boys Don't cry look-alike took to the stage at last week's Teen Choice Awards in California and in keeping with his new grown-up image, attempted a flashy, sci-fi inspired ensemble.
However, the actual outfit itself looked more like a streetwise version of the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, with distressed grey denim, a t-shirt seemingly covered in metallic bird poo and a silver contraption strapped to his left forearm for no particular reason.
Oh and not to mention bright gold fingerless gloves.
If Thor was confronted by a skinny street thug on his homeworld of Asgard in his 2011 blockbuster, that character probably would've worn a similar outfit.
What really gets our goat, however, is his extremely shiny trousers, which look exactly like tin foil to our eyes. The pants would've been perfect for wrapping a particularly large sandwich in but actually wearing them? In public? Sounds like a bad idea to us.
To Bieber's credit, he might actually be wearing such ridiculous outfits for shits and giggles at this stage.
His army of Beliebers are so indoctrinated that they would literally jump off a clif in his directly tweeted one of them to do so and with that kind of power, at least he's using it for lesser evils such as metallic trousers.
