A funny detail has come out about that surprise visit to California State Prison last month that Justin Bieber made. Apparently he chose his VERY DEPRESSING song “Lonely” to sing to the prisoners. Because inmates can definitely relate to a super-rich pop star moaning about being lonely, when they themselves are behind bars.
“What if you had it all / But nobody to call? / Maybe then you’d know me,” he moans in the song. “‘Cause I’ve had everything / But no one’s listening / And that’s just f–king lonely.”
I can’t stop giggling at the video.
Bless his heart, though. He seems sincere.
Bieber’s visit to the incarcerated was in support of the prison’s faith-based programs.
Page Six notes that his visit also included him sitting in a circle with a group in the prison yard and listening to speakers, which is part of his mission to spread the gospel.
