Not a single one of us is about to suggest that Justin Bieber is in possession of a normal brain; anyone who’s grown-up in the way that he has is practically guaranteed to be a little bit screwy in the bonce. But ahh… look, we’ll just let the evidence speak for itself in this case.
Bieber, as a lot of you are probably aware, is a card-carrying Hillsong aficionado; the God-thumping corporation that applies big-budget production to religious austerity and isn’t harbouring any hidden financial agendas whatsoever.
Point being, your boy Biebs is a devout Christian, and as such the holy Easter weekend holds a certain level of significance for him.
Maybe he’s all het up on chocolate or something, or maybe he’s seen the holy light. Whatever the case, Bieber has chosen to mark celebrations of Easter Sunday with a rather… the kindest word is probably “loose” pair of posts on Instagram.
We reiterate: It’s a wild ride.
The first one features little more than an all-caps rant about history’s most famous cave-dweller Jesus, extolling his various virtues and championing the time he “defeated death,” thoroughly denouncing all rabbit-related Easter iconography in the process.
JESUS HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. EASTER IS NOT ABOUT A BUNNY, IT’S A REMINDER THAT MY JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS AND THEN ROSE FROM THE DEAD DEFEATING DEATH!
I BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED AND IT CHANGES EVERYTHING! I AM SET FREE FROM BONDAGE AND SHAME I AM A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD AND HE LOVES ME EXACTLY WHERE I AM HOW AM FOR WHO I AM
A few hours later, however, Bieber reneged on the bunny-bashing, claiming an egregious lie on his own behalf and stating that rabbits have just as much place in Easter as any persecuted Israeli.
You alright there, m8?
All flippancy aside, pretty to know where he scored those magnificently outrageous bunny sunnies.
It’s a strong look, as far as we’re concerned.
