Eek. Prince fans are not too happy with Justin Bieber after he posted an insensitive, disrespectful comment about the iconic singer, just hours after his April 21 death. Former California Breed guitarist Andrew Watt said the world lost ‘the last of the greatest living performers,’ but Justin didn’t agree.
Isnt it too late to say sorry? For Justin Bieber, who actually released a tune with those very lyrics, it may be. “the last of the greatest living performers.” In fact, Justin made a rather selfish comment.
“This past Tuesday night before my show I was picking out an outfit…I was so tired from the past week of endless traveling and gigging that I grabbed my Prince shirt and said fuck it I’m gonna channel the purple one tonight…I didn’t shower after the gig out of pure exhaustion…I went to sleep in that shirt and then I wore it again all day yesterday…today waking up to this news I am truly beside myself…devastated…the last of the greatest living performers…my guitar idol…his connection to ALL his instruments yielded a sexual transcending aura and the world is just less fucking cool without him walking on it… ‘Electric word life — It means forever and that’s a mighty long time — But I’m here to tell you — There’s something else… The after world’ #RIPPRINCE,” Andrew wrote on Instagram April 21.
Regrettably, Justin’s comment is out there for the world.
