Yeah, you’re right. Justin’s attractiveness seriously does have an impact on his popularity but not a ton. Justin’s popularity or fans/beliebers come from his kind words and actions and AMAZING voice. You can say anything else but you’re lying to yourself right there. Ariana’s success doesn’t come from Justin, it comes from her amazing vocals and voice, the girl really is talented. I honestly love her. But there is no room to compare when Ariana’s net worth is about 12 million? (Not that she doesn’t deserve more than that) And Justin’s is about 200 million. Justin’s money doesn’t come from looks. No idiot would buy his album because they find his face pretty or because he has a “decent” voice. No idiot would spend money on that. But what they would spend money on is an incredibly talented young artists who has an -please may I say- angelic voice. And I know exactly what comeback you’re going to use, “he went to jail” “he’s a bad role model” etc etc. yeah, he did go to jail, thank you for acknowledging that! But you know what else he did? He apologized publicly for his actions more than 3 times. MORE THAN 3 TIMES. you know how much strength it takes to come back from an all time low like that? Do you know how it fucking feels to have people bash you down EVERY single day for the rest of your goddamn life (since you were 12, may I repeat : 1 2) and then STILL manage to become a better person out of it? Getting death threats everyday is not a nice thing, may I assure you. Being teased and haunted for your mistakes every day of your life is not a great thing either. But here he is moving forward with his life even when to this day he still gets an incredible amount of hate. Okay, thank you. Thank you for recognizing the fact that he “went to jail” but do you know that he has also done all these things :
He often visits children from the Make A Wish foundation, which dedicates to making the dreams of children battling life threatening diseases come true
Many of these visits he has asked to make without cameras to make it more special for the kids
He is involved and/or supports many charities such as Pencils of Promise, Make A Wish, Boys and Girls Club of America, Project Medishare for Haiti, City of Hope, Musicians on Call, and the Grammy Foundation
He started the Believe Charity Drive which raises money from all of his album sales (which are a lot) to give to each of these charities
In total that is $119,2004 for charity
He visited victims from the Tsunami in Japan and invited them to his show to give them a break from all the disaster
On his 17th and 18th birthday Justin asked his fans to help bring clean water to those in need by donating to Charity Water
He donates $1 from each ticket he sells from his shows to Pencils of Promise
He donates a portion of all his fragrance sales to charity
He donated a portion of his Christmas Album Under the Mistletoe to charity. This album later became #1 in the US with 1,245,000 copies sold. But that’s just in the US
He supports WETOPIA, a game on Facebook that helps donate clean water, meals, and other things to people in need just by playing He visited a needy school in Las Vegas which is a school that supports homeless children or children on the verge of being homeless. Justin donated $100,000 to the school for supplies and food plus and additional $100,000 in toys for the kids. To top it all off, in December he went to the school to do an acoustic performance of his #1 album, Under the Mistletoe
When he cut his hair wich came to a shock to his fans and the media, he auctioned a lock of his hair on eBay for charity. His hair sold for $40,668.
He recently joined the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign
Justin donated portions of his single Turn To You, a dedication to his mom on Mother’s Day, to Save Bethesda Centre for pregnant teens
He donated $10,000 to a food bank in Canada
He visited a 7 year old cancer patient who is also a huge fan of his, and made her entire day by singing to her
He auctioned his motorcycle off to give money to the Rob Dyrdek Foundation
In 2011, he flew out to meet one of his biggest fans, Avalanna Routh who was suffering from a rare brain cancer. In the hospital she was in, she was known as ‘Mrs. Bieber". After the first meeting, Justin became attached to this little girl and he later flew her out to meet him several times and even made her his ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ in one of his concert. Justin did whatever he could to make this little girl happy until she unfortunately passed away in 2013.
Apart from all the charity work, Justin also does anything he can to make his fans happy. This includes following his fans on twitter, DMing them, tweeting them, putting out silly pictures and videos for them, and simply interacting with them.
At a recent concert in Iowa, Justin went out of his way to give three fans tickets when didn’t have tickets to his show, chatted with them a bit, bought all three of them McDonalds, and later tweeted and followed him after the show.
At one of his concerts, fans tried to sneak into his meet and greet and, upon hearing this, Justin told security to let them in even if it meant running late for his show.
On the day of his 18th birthday, he stayed in the studio all day to finish his album Believe for his fans

He went to Guatemala and hands on built a school for children in need with the money from his concert tickets
He gave a kid with no shoes the shoes off his feet
Later he made a video expressing his gratitude for being able to help out and make a difference and bring smiles to children’s faces.
He went out to meet a fan who got into a car accident on her way to his concert and gave her a private show.
He raised over 3 million dollars for the damages in the Philippines and went out to perform or them
He was awarded a star on the Philippine Walk of Fame for his Typhoon Haiyan Relief Effort
Justin donated half a million to AIDS Research
Won the Champ of Charity Award at the Young Hollywood Awards 2014 for being the celebrity with the most Make-A-Wish granted


And there is proof for every single thing on this list and I can send you all of it if you just don’t believe me- if you even bothered to read because I mean duh he’s Justin Bieber and he absolutely does NOT deserve a chance because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time surrounded by all the wrong people (not that it wasn’t also his doing or fault) .
Justin isn’t here because of Usher, usher only played a small part in his success and without Justin’s talent usher wouldn’t have had any liking to justin in the first place…I mean why would he need someone with an attractive face and a decent voice right?
So please, get your facts straight before you start making up random shit, thank you. And if that isn’t enough for you and your ignorant self then I’ll let you know that justin cares very much about his fans. If you don’t believe THAT then I can try to dig up the post which proved it 100% (you can’t deny his unconditional love for his fans) and gladly send you the link :) totalariana

Rob Dyrdek Launches Clothing Line With DC Shoes | Fantasy Factory | September 2012

Rob Dyrdek Launches Clothing Line With DC Shoes – Fantasy Factory September, 2012

 

 

 

 

This past week I had the fortunate privilege to attend the launch of Rob Dyrdek’s new clothing line for DC SHOES. The event was held at Dyrdek’s famed, Fantasy Factory in Los Angeles, California. The night kicked off with a Belvedere sponsored vodka bar and included a Red Carpet with the traditional step and repeat, where I had a chance to grab a few moments with the entrepreneur, athlete, mogul, funnyman—and now designer, Rob Dyrdek.

Dana Elizabeth:Rob, so nice to meet you—so talk to us about the new collection. What makes this so different?

 

Rob Dyrdek: How you doing, Dana?

 

Dana Elizabeth: (Laughing) Hi, Rob—I’m great, how are you doing?

Rob Dyrdek: I’m good Dana—Yeah, it’s really just like this…we call it Dyrdek. It’s basically a revamp collection or line within DC. I basically hired a kid, that’s like one of the O.G. designers from DC that went on to do other things, to work with me to create it. Basically we just built like a traditional skate athletic line that DC is known for. We just made different subdivisions, from Throwback, to Alumni, to just different looks and feels that are all athletic based—all skate athletic.

Dana Elizabeth: So what role in design did you play, did you play a part in the design of it?

 

Rob Dyrdek: Yeah, full on. I mean because basically in the past I would let DC designers kind of deal with it—and I was never really satisfied. So I basically hired someone full time to kind of work with me, to be next to me–so we developed this thing, like top to bottom and really defined it. So that was really like the re-launch of my brand within DC. I really pushed and pulled each graphicto every single piece top to bottom…

 

Dana Elizabeth: (Nodding) Now, I know you also have a charity, The Rob Dyrdek Foundation. What sort of plans do you see in the future for the foundation? Do you have anything coming up on the horizon that we should know about? Anything happening in the near future?


      

                 Photo above: Rob Dyrdek credit: Kai He for The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine 

Rob Dyrdek: I mean for me—its just about building skate parks all over the world. For me it’s about continuing to build partnerships with corporate brands, and raise money—and partnerships with cities and build skate plazas anywhere I can…

 

Dana Elizabeth: You know, I grew up in Los Angeles and I never really saw a ladies skate-clothing brand really take off. Do you see yourself designing a clothing brand for girls?

 

Rob Dyrdek: I would love to eventually. As it evolves, a lot of the pieces in this collection we designed for girls. You know eventually each time I launch a new collection I’d love to have a girl line be completely connected to that…all the way down to footwear.

 

Dana Elizabeth: Can you talk a bit more briefly about each sub-division of each line in the Dyrdek collection. How are they different?

      

                  Photo above: Rob Dyrdek credit: Kai He for The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine 

Rob Dyrdek: You know, yeah–I think throw back is more of an ‘Old School’ baseball, and then Alumni is a more collegiate vibe, The Heritage is more of a modern take on some of the classic, DC Shoe Co. USA graphics and stuff—and kind of making them our own. You know there’s one that has more Camo in it…each one has a similar vibe but each with a unique flavor.

 

Dana Elizabeth: Where will the line be available?

 

Rob Dyrdek: Everywhere, from core-skate shops to PACSUN, to Tilly’s, Zumiez and online…

After our interview, we posed on the step and repeat for a few quick photos together. Rob Jokingly added, as cameras flashed back and forth—“Let’s get it Dana.” Laughing, I joked, “Should we pose together?” Rob’s response, “I’ve only got one pose Dana, and you’ve already got it.” Laughing we snapped a few more photos before heading into the party. The easy going and likeable Dyrdek stayed behind making sure that every interview request and photo-op was fulfilled before he joined the crowd.

Justin Bieber is a good person.  The only side people see are his “mistakes”, and that is because people enjoy seeing him fall.  Almost all of the rumors have been proven false, but of course that doesn’t get out for people to see it either.  Am I saying that he is a perfect human being and never makes mistakes?  Hell no, he’s a human being… just like all of us.  But when you are watched every single day, all day by cameras and people just waiting for you to break… it gets to you.  With everything that people say about him (twitter, facebook, tumblr… etc.) that would get to you too.  Knowing that people hate you for things that you haven’t even done… sure doesn’t sound right to me.  So if you hate him for “spitting on his fans”, “drinking and driving” (PROOF THAT HE DIDN’T DO IT BUT OF COURSE PEOPLE DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT), “made girl commit suicide because he called her a beach whale”, “egging neighbors house” know that they have been proven not correct.  Sure, he’s done dumb stuff, like peeing in a bucket, drinking underage, or smoking… but the GOOD out ways the BAD.

Just think about it.
