    At the VMAs, Justin cried after his performance of “What Do You Mean” and many believe that was the start of a comeback. But with his recent immature antics (walking off the stage because fans weren’t clapping on beat; walking out of a radio interview; throwing a tantrum at the “Today” show), is he starting to self-combust again?

    No one cares about Justin Dwieber.

    I hope 1D debut at #1 on Billboard 200 they already predict sell more but with streams they are equal with Justin and if 1D debut at #1 JB will cry like a baby and he will be cancelled

    Justin Bieber is going to Donny Osmond when he becomes middle-aged. Watch and see.

    Three hot top 10 singles in a row are nothing to sneeze at. Bieber’s comeback would be fine if he made it solely about the music, but he gets in his own way far too much, and that’s going to be his downfall.

    He’s already combusting.

    “Sorry” and “WDYM” are good, but they’re the only songs on the album I like.

    The album is very solid, and I love the music videos that were released today. His team are playing this release very well.

    I don’t think his antics will affect his career, unless he keeps doing them. His fans will support him no matter what he does.

    The way this album is being promoted is suiting him quite well. It’s not all about him – this whole “#PurposeMovement” thing is genius. He and his team know that his antics will get him nowhere, and so having a talented New Zealand dance troup choreograph and be featured in every music video for every song on the album – PERFECTION.

    I’m not a fan of Bieber at all, trust me – and this album is far from perfect, but I can’t deny that some of these songs (“Sorry”, “What Do You Mean”, “Children”) are very solid pop records. Justin needs to stick with Diplo and Skrillex for a while, this is good stuff. And his success shows on the Billboard charts.

    He’s still probably a dick, but his new music is fun and club-ready and the public seems to only care about that for now.

    Don’t have a clue about the album, and he seems to be alright in some interviews. But based on the music alone, I’m really warming to him. Not a lover of What Do You Mean, but Where Are U Now and Sorry are absolute tunes! Never thought I’d say that about Bieber songs.

    The only decent tracks other than the singles released so far are Children and Love Yourself. The rest is garbage. Lucky for him the good tracks are reeaallllyyyyyy good. If he were to continue in the EDM direction he’s been going with Skrillex and Diplo I could see him making a comeback. Although regardless I still despise him as a human being.

    Comeback? I wasn’t aware he ever went away. I think he constant presence in the tabloids and media has made me think he never really went away.

    I’m glad I’m not crazy in thinking Purpose is a pretty solid album. The problem with Bieber’s narrative is more or less the same as Purpose. Sonically, Purpose is surprisingly disciplined. The only outright bad track is the Ed Sheeran feature “Love Yourself.” Otherwise, there’s a surprising measure of creativity and restraint in the production and songwriting. The album has potential to be, if not redemptive, a coming-of-age story. Flickers of maturity and instrospecting can be heard throughout the record. On the whole, though, Justin Bieber plays the victim when the warrant just isn’t there. “What Do You Mean?” is one of the best pop tracks of the year, make no mistake. Yet, Bieber isn’t quite doing what he can. I mean, the album opens with him asking us, “Don’t forget that I’m human.” Bieber never really admits his humanity. He fails to take responsibility, and these songs often feel like a one-sided indictment of everyone else–particularly Selena Gomez. Too many of these songs are whiny or unearned. Maybe Bieber’s next album will build upon what is legitimate promise. Purpose is a good album. Not a great one, nor a particularly noteworthy one, but better than average. That’s not a bad place to start. Bieber has some work to do, but he’s on the right track.

    I tried, but I can’t get into it. A few decent songs, but the best ones have been the three singles released prior to the album’s release. Luckily, I am a huge fan of all of those songs, especially “Sorry,” which is THE jam. As a person, I still don’t really like him. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to blindly bash his music. Just for me, it doesn’t fit my taste.
