What we have here is yet another exhibit which contributes to the mounting evidence that Shaq might in fact be getting a bit long in the tooth and maybe even off his rocker just a tad. Yep, Shaq has recently began a friendship with and developed into something of a fanboy for one Justin Bieber. I mean, Bieber seems like a nice enough girl and all, but really, Shaq? It’s teeny-bopper music, man. What in God’s name are you doing hanging out with that chick? What has happened to the hard-edged, aspiring rapper who laid down some badass rhymes and dropped some serious knowledge on Shaq Diesel? That Shaquille O’Neal from back in the day wouldn’t have gone out like this. Even worse, Shaq tweeted his praise for the teen idol after attending a Justin Bieber concert:
I was at a justin bieber concert he had dat mug jumpin 50 thousand people dat kids a star, and I got his autograph thanks justin
Well, I give Shaq credit for not tweeting something like “OMG OMG!! I just got Bieberster’s autograph!! OMG! Im gonna die!!!” but still. Come on, Shaq: you’re better than that.
What’s that? Shaq was kicking it with Bieber because the teen sensation was filming an appearance for Shaq’s ABC show, Shaq Vs. and that said appearance consisted of some sort of likely nightmare fuel-inducing dance-off? Um, I see. Well, that makes it a little bit better. Not much, but a little. I guess. No self-respecting man should be heaping praise upon Justin Bieber. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m on my way out to the store to pick up the entire Selena Gomez CD collection. She’s the best.
