Justin Bieber met with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper this past Friday. He dressed in a white t-shirt with overalls, one shoulder unbuttoned, naturally, and cap turned around. You know, ’cuz that’s the respectful way to wear your cap when you meet the PM of the country you’re from, and when you receive a medal of honour, such as the Diamond Jubilee, for making a significant contribution to your community, province or country.
Beliebers will probably tell you that the outfit is one Bieber wears on stage so he didn’t have time to change. Because pop stars never work a quick-change. Madonna doesn’t change her whole outfit and makeup in three minutes, so obviously Biebs couldn’t throw on a suit with that tee, Miami Vice styles.
Guess we’ll never know.
Do you have thoughts?
UPDATE 25 Nov: Judging from his Twitter feed last night, Justin Bieber seems to be amused at having worn overalls to meet with his/our Prime Minister:

UPDATE 2 25 Nov: The Beautygeeks team debated today whether Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s tweet last night should mollify us on the subject of Justin Bieber’s wardrobe choice — costume or not — for meeting with the PM and for receiving a prestigious award.

While we acknowledge the amusement factor of the PM’s tweet — and note with interest that the PM had a 30-minute drive to meet the Biebs, and that his teenage son, Ben Harper, attended the concert — in the end we feel the Prime Minister’s response is irrelevant. We still think Justin Bieber could have made a more appropriate wardrobe choice for the occasion, and changed quickly afterward for his performance. — JF
