What Would You Get Justin Bieber For His 18th Birthday?

The fringiest singer in pop is about to turn of age. He’ll be 18, which means he can do whatever he wants with the reported $85 million he’s worth. It’s still his birthday though, so we rummaged through Justin’s old interviews for gift ideas.



1‘The Complete Dream Book'

HE SAYS: “I dreamt about blackness because I don’t dream. I just fall asleep, see black, and wake up.”
WE SAY: Poor Bieber-no-dreams. Hopefully this title will help his escape the void, and unlock the secret to his psyche. Or something.

2‘Politics for Dummies’

HE SAYS: “I’m not sure about parties, but whatever they have in Korea, that’s bad.”
WE SAY: OK, so he didn’t know what ‘German’ was (the interviewer had a funny accent, apparently, totally not Justin’s fault). But he should at least know that there are two Koreas.

3Hairdryer

HE SAYS: “I don’t style it. I just blow-dry it and”—he pauses and tousles his hair—“kind of shake it.”
WE SAY: Far be it from us to suggest haircare to the King Of Fringe, but maybe a new hairdryer would be a suitable birthday gift?



4Set of mystic runes (£3.99 from Argos)

HE SAYS: Mum always brought me to church and she put me in Sunday school. When I was little, I did ‘prophetic words’ which is sort of like fortune-telling, but from God. In one of those tapes it was foretold that I was going to be the voice of the new generation."
WE SAY: We’re not quite sure what ‘prophetic words’ are, but if you’re into wizardry (sorry, we stopped listening at ‘fortune-telling’), these handy magic stones can fit in your pocket.

What would you suggest for Justin’s birthday? Any #biebergifts you think would be perfect?
