Justin Bieber’s Prince comment on Instagram is fake

Justin Bieber was once again on the headlines of many online sites with a scandal he didn’t commit – the infamous comment that was left on Andrew Watts online tribute to Prince.

Somehow though, in the comment section of the emotional post, a comment appeared by what seems to be Justin’s Instagram account.

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

Following up on a line naming Prince “the last of the greatest living performers”, the “Justin” account was quick to say “Well not the last greatest living performer” – which of course, left many fans angered by the “comment”. Since then, Justin has consistently been attacked by various articles and fans about the incident.


Billboard claims that Justin’s camp confirmed the said comment was fake, and wasn’t written by Bieber – who has still remained silent on the tragic passing of Prince. In the meantime, many celebrities have expressed their sadness and gratitude due to Prince’s death. Others have made tributes to the deceased legend.

So what exactly happened, we can’t really say for sure. Did Justin’s management try to clean up his mess, or was he once again falsely accused? You can tell us your opinion on CelebMix or CelebMixJB.
