Last night I met Justin Bieber in a dream.
Not as he is now. He was broken down. Living on a river. And with his adorable girlfriend we punched on in bars. Snorted drugs in the gutter. Discussed Money May and everything Money May taught him about tipping in strip joints. And when I last saw Bieber he was foaming at the mouth. His girlfriend suggested we leave and come back later. And before leaving we knelt before Justin. Stroked his forehead. Told him he was handsome.
P.S. – He’s a really great guy.
