After a year of fashion’s biggest celebrity event being postponed, the Met Gala resumed once again in 2021. Walking the red carpet was none other than THE fashion-forward couple, Justin and Hailey Bieber. Hailey wore a slinky low-cut Saint Laurent black dress to honor the event’s theme, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.”
While Hailey’s dress was a fan favorite, rumors quickly spread when her husband Justin was photographed placing his hand on Hailey’s stomach, sending the tabloids into pregnancy speculation turmoil. Though the rumors persisted, sources assured fans that it was just a pose.
Victim of Bullying
Being young and in the spotlight can result in having millions of eyes on you at all times. It can also result in cruel comments by social media users. Unfortunately, Hailey Bieber has found herself the victim of online bullying and the subject of hateful comments and threats.
She has deleted her Instagram various times and even left Twitter following a barrage of mean-spirited messages. She lamented, "It hurts to be torn apart on the internet," adding “It hurts to be called names, and to feel like you don't measure up to a certain standard.” Preach it, Hailey!
Justin Bieber, Le Politicien?
Though Justin has toured Europe many times, his visit in June of 2021 was extra special — he got to tour the city of love with his new wife, Hailey. The two took in the usual sites of the romantic city, all while looking super stylish.
The highlight of their French tour came when they met with the country’s President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte. Considering that Justin attended a bi-lingual (French/English) school when growing up in Canada, we hope he was able to use a bit of his français to impress the politicians! However, what really got tounges wagging was the Bibers' outfit choice to meet the president. Some were outraged that Hailey wore such a skin-tight and revealing frock, while Justin's look was just plain sloppy.
Real-Life Internet Trolls
It’s one thing to read mean messages on social media, it’s another thing when those same internet “trolls” or “haters” want to harass you in real life. At the 2021 Met Gala, as Justin and Hailey Bieber were walking the red carpet, they were met with a throng of Selena Gomez fans who chanted “Selena” at the couple.
The awkward moment quickly went viral on TikTok much to their embarrassment. Thankfully, the couple simply ignored the haters and carried on gracing the red carpet with plenty of smiles and PDA.
The Epic Fight That Went Viral
Being a famous couple can mean that a simple conversation can quickly be construed as a blow-out fight. That was the case for Justin Bieber and wife Hailey when they were recorded having what looked like an epic fight in Las Vegas in the summer of 2021. The video, taken after Justin’s performance, shows the two engaged in a particularly animated conversation.
Though witnesses claimed that Justin wasn’t yelling, he was just overcome with adrenaline from his performance, viewers of the viral video disagreed. Once again, news of the couple’s marital issues made headlines.
