Justin Bieber launches nail polish line
Reuters-Yahoo! ^

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Teen idol Justin Bieber is launching a line of nail polish inspired by his biggest music hits, nail care company OPI said on Monday.

With shades like One Less Lonely Glitter (lavender), Prized Possession Purple (grape), Give Me the First Dance (silver) and Me + Blue (dark blue), the first six colors in the line for Nicole by OPI will be sold exclusively through Wal-Mart retail stores in December 2010.

The remainder of the "One Less Lonely Girl" collection from the 16 year-old singer will be released in Wal-Mart stores in January 2011 before being distributed more widely in February.

"We are thrilled to team up with such a widely beloved singer who has made major waves in pop culture," Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI's vice president and artistic director, said in a statement.

"The colors in the collection are modeled after the upbeat and emotive nature of Justin's songs, as well as his own unrivaled energy," she added.

"One Less Lonely Girl", from Bieber's 2009 debut album, is one of the most successful singles in the young musician's career after he was discovered on YouTube. His second album "My World 2.0" debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts in March and he has already sold over five million albums worldwide.

The nail polish line is the latest product tie-in for Bieber, who earlier this year was named the most-searched celebrity on the Internet.

The baby-faced singer recently became the spokesman for anti-acne skin line Proactiv, and a range of Justin Bieber dolls and toys will be in stores this Christmas.

RUFKM?

Why is a male teen heartthrob developing a line of nail polish?

What the hell is going on in this world that it’s all of a sudden cool or acceptable for boys to wear nail polish?

God help us.

OK, I’m sure Justin understands by now the name of the game he’s in, but I think this qualifies for child abuse/exploitation.

Who?

Still don't really have any clue who this guy is despite seeing his name a lot. But I don't care enough to take five seconds to Google it.

I'm guessing he is 2010's version of Hanson?

The male emos and goths wear that dark-purple-magenta, dried-blood color of nail polish, or black polish, and I don’t find it particularly feminine, I find it creepy.

Best way we found to combat that was whenever some female singer came on the radio, we'd ask my daughter if that was that Justin Bieber kid we'd been hearing about. Taunting works wonders with tweens!

A guy starting a nail polish line? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Over. I have no idea who the hell this turkey is, but is his name Justin, or Justina.

Now where's my Lynyrd Skynyrd CD?

Such a thought would have never crossed my sons’ mind, both being twenty-something practicing heterosexual conseratives. If it had crossed their minds, they wouldn’t admit it, and would not have chosen to be a total embarrassment to me, their father, who they well know tried to teach them by example what it means to be a real live traditional man, and not some gutless,limp-wristed sissified lousy excuse for a man.

A friend of mine said that Bieber looks like a teen idol that was designed by a gay producer who assumed teen girls are attracted to the same asexual young boy look that most gay men are.

This kid could not look more feminine if he wore a dress. I see his haircut everywhere I go. My last haircut (I am a 70 year old woman) is a little too Beiberish to suit me.

Look, I just coined a new word “Beiberish”! LOL!

It may not have crossed his mind, either. This may be driven by the marketing machine that manages him. The marketing folks know all too well that the teen idol market life is a fast burn and you must strike while the iron is hot. The marketing teams get merchandising percentages, too.

For a 16 year old son, a good father doesn’t allow his son to enter into a contract that makes a high dollar whore out of him in exchange for the boy’s self respect and any chance of ever having a good name. I don’t care how much money is involved. The father and mother both ought to be charged with child abuse.
