Justin Bieber may have won an award over the weekend, but some people are in no mood to celebrate the young superstar.
On Saturday, Bieber accepted the Diamond Jubilee Medal from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, shaking hands with the politician in an outfit many believe was wholly inappropriate for the occasion.
Hayley Peterson of The Daily Mail, for instance, actually referred to Justin as a "white trash prince" for donning one-strapped overalls during the photo op.
Look, critics, Justin Bieber could have been wearing a lot less.
And now Bieber has spoken out in defense of his wardrobe, writing last night on Instagram:
"The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where i was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you "Hayley" expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan a suit at that specific time that's crazy, It wasn't like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am i ever white trash hayley peterson lol"
What do you think? Was Bieber - who also got booed yesterday while performing at halftime of the Grey Cup - in the wrong for wearing such an outfit for such a major occasion?
