Justin Bieber Concert in Salt Lake City, Utah Highlights

Justin Bieber stopped in Salt Lake City for his “Purpose” Tour last Saturday. The entire concert was sold out with an occasional scalper here and there giving a few lucky fans the chance to see Bieber in person. The Introduction to the concert can be found here.

Thousands of excited Justin Bieber “Belieber’s” filled the Vivint Smart Home Arena to see Bieber. If you are wondering what a true Belieber is than here is your answer from the urban dictionary:

  1. Belieber– One who is an obsessive fan of Justin Bieber.
Sentence: Once I saw his face, I was a Belieber.
     2. Belieber– A person who loves Justin Bieber and Beliebes in everything that he can do.

Sentence: I am a Belieber because I respect Justin Bieber and I believe in him.
      3. Belieber– Belieber is a HUGE Justin Bieber’s fan. Fan and Belieber is really different, Fan will leave him just because a little thing, but Belieber is not going to leave him even though the biggest thing that can break a relationship.
      4. Belieber-A ‘Belieber’ is a fan girl of teeny bopper sensation Justin Bieber. They are usually between the age of 10-15. A lot of them spend most of their life on Twitter where they:
Tweet about how much they love Justin Bieber
Shout-out other ‘beliebers’
-Use a lot of tags like #ifollowback or #teamfollowback.

Other twitter users who are not beliebers (and/or above the age of 15) get rather annoyed by the insane amount of ‘beliebers’ on Twitter and counter act with tags like #Justinbeibersucks.

Beliebers are also well known for fainting at Justin Bieber concerts/appearances. They are also well known for covering their room and school books with pictures of Justin Bieber.

Singing, Sports, and Popular Culture are Related

In music it is very commonplace to use professional athletes in an artist’s song. Here are my Top 5 examples of how an athlete can have an impact on current popular culture at the time when a new song is being released.

5.  Jay-Z rapping about professional basketball players Lebron James and Dwyane Wade.

“City it’s a pity, half of y’all won’t make it

If Jeezy’s payin’ LeBron, I’m payin’ Dwyane Wade.” -(“Empire State of Mind”2009)

4. Kanye West rapping about professional basketball player Magic Johnson.

3. Drake rapping about professional basketball player Michael Jordan.

“Yeah, I learned the game from William Wesley

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey.” -(“Mrs. Robinson”1968)
