Bieber Fever?

Every now and then when my husband and I are flipping channels and land on an entertainment news show, we both look at each and one of us will ask, "Who the heck is that?"
The other one usually shrugs with a "No clue." sort of look.  So much for being "with it" parents.

When I was a youth minister I was pretty good at keeping up with all the trends, music, actors, etc.
I felt it was part of my job to really be familiar with pop culture (or so I told myself.)
Pop culture in my world these days is limited to Blues Clues, Jack's Big Music Show, Laurie Berkner and Sesame Street.  Not complainin' ~ just sayin'.

The other day while waiting for Iain to come home, I flipped on Oprah who was featuring Most Talented Kids. Justin Bieber was a guest.
I've heard of him but really didn't know much else other than his name. He's adorable, seems down to earth and fairly wholesome. I loved the fact that he was raised by his single mom who started posting videos on YouTube of  him singing.  Apparently they became viral and he's now a Phenom.
Oprah's audience was filled with pre-teen fanatics who were squealing and crying and making quite the fuss for this 16 year old superstar.  I laughed to myself and rolled my eyes.
I was never one of those girls.  I was hoping my daughter wouldn't be, either.
Then, Bieber sang.
My daughter stopped playing with her toys, stood up and fixed her sweet blue eyes on the adorable singing teenager on the tv screen.  She usually dances and twirls.  Not this time. She was totally sucked in.  She had a toy microphone in her hand, and she occasionally sang along.
"Baby, Baby, Baby...yeah, yeah"
(That accounts for about 70% of the lyrics.)

Geez, she's not even two.
Isn't she a little young for Bieber Fever?


  1. That expression is priceless :)

  2. I've NEVER seen her still and with only one expression for so long!

    She's the phenom, Maria. I need some Maria and Gianna time.
