Going viral: Actor Gordon Pinsent reads Justin Bieber's memoir
Because we know you, like us, can't get enough Justin Bieber, we feel compelled to remind you that the 16-year-old mega-pop phenom published what will doubtless be only the first of many volumes of his memoirs this month.
"Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever" chronicles the Bieb's rise from obscurity (aka Canada) to the top of the pop charts. Yours truly downloaded it to iBooks, purely for research purposes. I didn't at all take to heart the special message from Justin:
Every one of you is "My Favorite Girl" for a different reason because each of you is special in your own way. Everywhere I go, whatever I do, I try to connect with as many of you as possible. If you're up front at a concert, I might reach out and hold your hand. If you show up outside the arena after a show, you might get soaked in one of our epic water fights. You might just be talking to your friends on Twitter saying you have a one-in-a-million chance of reaching me and now I'm following you.
Well, I am special in my own way. That much is true. And the book is chock-full of quotables.
Much more, including the video, after the jump.
The nuggets include everything from an explanation of hockey rink procedure:
A Zamboni is that huge tank-like thing they drive around to even out the ice during halftime at a hockey game. It melts the top layer, which almost immediately refreezes as smooth as glass. But I can't believe I have to describe what a Zamboni is. It's like describing something you've known since the day you were born.
If you're looking at a map of North America, you'll see that Ontario is that little triangle of Canada that cuts down into the Great Lakes between New York and Michigan.
To Bieber family traditions:
We all have Christmas dinner and I'm telling you, my grandma puts up an awesome Christmas dinner. Turkey and gravy.
Now video of Canadian actor Gordon Pinsent (who you may recall from 2006's "Away From Her") reading passages from the book on Canadian sketch show "This Hour Has 22 Minutes" has gone viral:
My favorite line: "Singers aren't supposed to have dairy before a show, but we all know I'm a rule-breaker."
Well done, eh?
