A Indie Folk Singer has a message for Justin Bieber

By FNN | March 12, 2013, 4:48pm IST
Summary: Indie folk star John Darnielle: "Try not to be an asshole" on the recent fight between the Justin and photographers.

Justin Beiber pushed back a photographer at the London hospital where he had been sent after collapsing backstage at a concert.

Bieber had to be controlled by bodyguard to avoid any further damage to his already damaged persona, and the photo that the paparazzi captured of the incident was far more widely circulated on the internet than any normal picture would have been. Some say Bieber overreacted; others blame intruding photographers.

John Darnielle, the singer-songwriter behind The Mountain Goats, sees both sides of the coin, and is offering a simple solution in the form of a short, reason-filled melody.

"Now, on the one hand, it's hard to feel sorry for the very rich, you can record an album of Mountain Goats covers and torpedo your career overnight," Darnielle sings. "But on the other hand, even a rich guy needs some space, and should be able to get to his car without people getting all up in his face and getting on his case. You don't have to leave Justin alone ... but don't be an asshole."
