What’s one of the first things a band or performer usually does when they don’t have anything to say on stage?
If you guessed “shout out whatever city you’re in,” you guessed right…”What’s up Los Angelessssssss?” Then, the crowd roars back because they said the name of your city.
The second thing artists like to do is pay homage to something special about that city.
The Biebs covered Em’s “Lose Yourself,” or at least a verse of it, but seemed to flub the words a bit, something the people of Detroit don’t take kindly to.
Eminem is one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time and the pride and joy of the great city of Detroit.
I think Biebs needs to re-watch 8 Mile, bring a little more energy to the song, and get the lyrics right next time.
Taylor Swift covered “Lose Yourself” as well awhile back and I’m going to give this round of cover songs to Taylor.
I mean, she’s T-Swizzle, ya’ll. You remember when she got down with T-Pain for “Thug Story,” don’t you?!
There’s plenty more where that came from! Watch some more of Surfer Stephen’s favorite viral videos below:
