I'm going to say something controversial here: I kind of like Justin Bieber's Instagram account. I don't follow him, because I'm over the age of 14 and have a sliver of dignity left, but I do get a kick out of perusing it here and there. Why? Because he's the worst Instagrammer ever, you guys. I'm convinced that 19 million out of his 20 million followers are just following him ironically. At least that's how I go to sleep at night. Anyway! I'm digressing. Bieber recently did this seriously annoying, seriously Bieber-esque thing, where he posted a photo of Selena Gomez looking all sultry and sexy... and then deleted it. Like, why, dude, why? Why are you always posting things, then deleting them? It isn't a good look. You need to be a confident 'grammer, man. A 'grammer who knows that what he's posting could rub some people the wrong way... but not give a shih tzu and leave it up for all to see, and possibly mock.
But there's more to Bieber's overall crappiness as an Instagrammer than his penchant for doing the post and delete. If you've ever seen his page (don't act like you haven't), you know why he's the worst.
Here, six reasons Justin Bieber sucks at Instagramming.
He constantly deletes his posts.
Okay, I know I already brought this up, but I'd be remiss if I didn't give it a category of its own. Only a few weeks before posting the shot of Gomez and then deleting it, Bieber did the same thing with a photo of Orlando Bloom crying. If you're going to do it, do it.
He thinks he's a tiger
This Instagram post of Justin's will never get old to me. Never. I think Bieber officially ruined tigers for me, but I don't even care, because it's a delight seeing how out-of-touch with reality the singer is. Also, how often do I come in contact with tigers, anyway?
He thinks he's tricking us
I think it's adorable that Justin doesn't think any of us are on to the fact that he's got a Highlights magazine tucked underneath there. The Wall Street Journal — LOLZ!
He's got waaaay too many photos of himself on his page
Sure, the people who are following him want to see pics of him, but mix it up, dude. At least try to act like you don't heart yourself so much.
He's cocky as all get-out
And as far as the non-selfie photos go, I dunno, maybe throw in a flower or a cup of coffee, as opposed to caca like this.
He's crazy out-of-touch
I think the Instagrammer with the beautiful account name f*ckyeahlovato said it best when she said, "Practice what you preach, Justin." Word.
