Oh, Justin Bieber, you’re the holiday gift that keeps on giving—continually giving us bitter, cranky folk continued reasons to hate. Why, just in time for the holiday season, you dropped a new disc of holiday tunes, called Under the Mistletoe! And, as if that wasn’t a good enough reason to hate you, you wisely made sure it sold a ton of units/ downloads, making it the first Christmas album by a male artist to ever hit #1 on the Billboard album charts. You little devil, you.
That’s right. Usually it takes Mariah Carey shattering glass with her banshee howl while yowling that “all I need this Christmas is yooooooooooouuuuuuuuu!” for a Christmas album to sell enough to hit the number one spot, but, thankfully for Bieber, this nation is full of enough preteen and tween girls and house moms with disposable incomes to ensure that Under the Mistletoe sold like crazy.
And if that wasn’t enough to annoy the living hell out of you, Under the Mistletoe is the Biebs’ third straight number one album, making him the first artist (and I use the term ‘artist’ very loosely here) of either gender to have three number one albums before he’s 18. There you go—that should create enough bitterness and bile to last you through the holiday season.
What do you think of Bieber’s Christmas album?
