21 Justin Bieber GIFs That Perfectly Represent Adolescent Angst, Whether You're A Teen Now Or Just Remembering The Old Days

This one goes out to all of the teens. And anyone who has ever been a teen. Basically, if you’re over the age of 12, listen up. I have some very important (and slightly disconcerting) news to relay to you. Are you prepared? You may want to sit down. Well, here it goes: we are all just like Justin Bieber. Yes, I’m talking about that Bieber. No, no, I’m sure you’ve never dated Selena Gomez, received mentoring from the likes of Usher, or egged a house, but there’s still in an innately expressive part of J. Bizzle that’s purely average. In fact, Internet geniuses have captured Bieber’s surprisingly relatable antics in little, neatly wrapped presents we like to call GIFs, just to prove my point.

But, back to the whole teen thing. We’ve all been there — moody, hormonal, misunderstood, riddled with pimples and unsightly fashion choices. But, it’s not all bad. As I’m sure you’ve come to know, with adolescence comes a loop-de-loop roller coaster of highs and lows. And this is where Bieber comes in, my friends. There is no man more equipped for the job of representing the teen world than Kidrauhl himself. Biebs might even know angst and triumph and heartbreak better than the rest of us. Just pick up any tabloid on any given day.

So, here are 21 Biebs GIFS that accurately portray adolescent angst — whether you're remembering the olden days of your teens or living them right now.
