If you, like us, were concerned that Justin Bieber’s drop-crotch pants addiction might be permanent, you can exhale: The star is doing a James Dean thing in the pages of Teen Vogue‘s May issue.

Rocking flannel, leather, an assortment of ribbed tank tops and his gem-encrusted cross, Bieber strikes a number of pensive poses throughout, even revealing the one thing he always wears: Le Labo Santal 33 cologne. Fancy!

In the interview, Bieber addresses all the unusual stories about him lately, but says he embraces his critics: “Every time a hater visits my YouTube page, I get, like, four cents. So tell the haters to keep hating, keep commenting, because I’m making money.”

Here’s hoping he uses that money to buy the great clothes from the shoot!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Justin Bieber will forever be ragged about his baggylicious garb, his floppy hair and oh yeah that monkey! It’s strange how we don’t comment about the paps though, some serious laws need to be adjusted. People are in the end just people who shouldn’t be harassed.

The day will come when Bieber realizes there’s more to life than money. And when that day comes, he will wake up friendless, alone, and forgotten. He is poison- to himself and to others.
