Look guys, I’m a Justin Timberlake fan and have seen him in concert twice and NSYNC once, so I can understand grown men going to see pop concerts. I get it. It’s not a big deal. Sometimes you just want to dance and have fun, so back off.

All that being said, J.J. Redick being asked to explain why he went to a Justin Bieber concert on a Magic off-day is TBS Very Funny. From the Orlando Sentinel:

Yes, for those of you who attended the Justin Bieber concert last night at Amway Center, that really was J.J. Redick in the audience.

Redick spent a precious Orlando Magic off-night at the Bieber concert, but there were mitigating circumstances. Redick’s wife, Chelsea, wanted to go.

“A happy wife is a happy life,” J.J. said after the Magic finished practice today.

“I have a general rule that if I have an off-day during the season that I owe it to her to do what she wants unless it’s harmful to my well-being. Her and her friends wanted to go.”

[...]

Redick said he’s not a Bieber fan.

In fact, Redick prefers indie rock.

Haha — cool cover, J.J. Redick. “No, I’m not really a Bieber fan. I listen to a lot of indie rock. You know, like the Divine Fits and AMFX. Stuff you’ve probably never heard of. I’m pretty with it.” Very smooth. Very straight. Very post-grad.

But hey, he is right about that “A happy wife is a happy life” thing. Not only is that a famous cliche, it’s also true. When you work around an NBA schedule, sometimes you have to sacrifice your free nights to silly things like hanging out with your wife, being a part of your family or building a relationship. For some reason, paying attention to your significant other is important when you’re busy five nights out of the week.

Nonetheless, I’m sure J.J. had a great time. Not only did he finally get to hear “Beauty and the Beat” in person, he probably also scored some hot hair tips from adoring Beliebers. Kind of a win-win-win, all things considered.

Plus, if Michael Jordan chills with the Biebs, how ashamed can anyone else really be? That guy has never done anything embarrassing since he stopped playing and is a perfect role model.

  1. I like underground music, and Bieber is better than those bands. Yikes.

  2. How are you going to do MJ like that man.

  3. why isn’t that last comment about MJ linked to an image of ‘the moustache’?

  4. There is a direct correlation between how much JJ likes a band and how close to Wales they are based. AMFX makes the cut.

  5. Do not understand why women older than Justin Bieber want to go to his concerts, but I guess that’s JJ’s problem.

  6. Isn’t AMFX that English band that rates their band practices according to the Kate scale, which Leigh mentioned on the fix today?

  7. OH MY F*CKING GOD, JJ REDICK’S MARRIED TO A 12 YEAR OLD!!!

  8. I don’t know what’s worse. Pretending you don’t like Justin Bieber or Being married to someone that Loves Justin Bieber.

  9. Earlier, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez revealed that they have split up their own relationship over Justin Bieber close friends Chris Brown, Lil Wyane and Sean Kingston. Justin and Selena which is known as Jelena apparently concluded their relationship after a concert of Selena Gomez in Florida together with Sean Kingston. It also seems Selena doesn’t like Justin Bieber to hang with his friend Lil Wayne, who has bad background of drugs possession as well as Chris Brown. Selena also claimed that by next coming days She will try to keep her relationship with Justin Bieber as normal as possible…”..*
