sorry, sorry... kind of forgot about this blog...

MORE: Twitter @justinbieber justin, let me know if you ever come up with something in the Guns & Roses style! thanks ~Delia ( #justinbieber less than 20 seconds ago via web in reply to justinbieber

I'm just going to put down what I find most interesting about Justin Bieber's case (just in case I'm going to leave it at this):

-- contrary to what appears to be the I-had-a-dream PR spin, he was in fact quite the realist (music was but a hobby for him, as it should have been, until somebody -- Scooter Braun -- made him an offer well worth exploring; without that offer his chances to make it in the music world would have probably been slim to none)

-- would be interesting to look at JB's choices as opposed to Dan Balan's choices; they both had you tube success but did very different things with it; while JB is by far the better known and... better paid, Dan Balan kept a lot more control over his music and a lot more individual freedom (at the expense of fame); would Dan Balan had taken the JB route if offered to him? not sure... might well have... but I believe what Dan Balan ended-up with (the control over his music, persona etc.) is probably a lot more fulfilling


P.S. favorite JB song (something in the Guns & Roses style -- does not exist yet as far as I'm aware, although he claims to love the style... e.g. Sweet child of mine

P.P.S. favorite Dan Balan song (it's actually in Romanian and pretty old: Oriunde ai fi)
