Say what you will about Justin Bieber’s history of being an asshole to nearly everyone he encounters, but the pop star clearly doesn’t give AF what anyone thinks about him. Always down to ditch a gig, hit a paparazzo, or slam a fan for invading his personal space, Bieber isn’t preoccupied with maintaining a squeaky-clean image for the press. Proving that they’re down to ride with him through breakups, meltdowns, and now an engagement, Bieber’s #Beliebers are a fan army that doesn’t mind stanning a problematic icon.
uh hi half unpopular opinion: justin bieber is kind of a dick. how the fuck did he get this beautiful girl to say yes to marrying his problematic ass?? wtf…. https://t.co/EvijHBrTLg

Basking in the post-engagement glow of popping the big question to his girlfriend of one month, model Hailey Baldwin, Bieber showed the world that not only is he ready to make a lifelong commitment, he’s also down to bend gender norms.
Justin Bieber wears his own engagement ring
After returning from their vacation to the Bahamas, Bieber and Baldwin hit up Pristine Jewelers in NYC, where the “Sorry” singer first purchased his fiancee’s $2 million rock.

Surprisingly, the trip wasn’t solely for the Biebs. During their joint visit, Baldwin picked up a diamond band engraved with the letters “JB” and a matching one for herself that reads “Baby,” which I’m desperately hoping is a nod to the pop star’s breakout 2010 single.
TBH, I’m really hoping that the “mangagement ring” takes off both in Hollywood and beyond. Promising to marry your partner isn’t just a one-way street, and I’m impressed that Bieber is undoubtedly willing to put his commitment on full display in an industry often plagued with rampant infidelity.
Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!
Shattering gender norms is a badass move, Biebs.
