It almost blew my mind to read that a famous, rich, award-winning singer like Justin Bieber has a flirting coach. But then, as soon as I thought about it, it made perfect sense.
The 16-year-old has an adviser (what we in the pick up artist business might call a guru) who is teaching him techniques to attract women. This adviser, named Ryan, might also take on the role of a wingman, for all we know. (I haven’t figured out if Ryan is a girl or guy, but I am assuming it’s a man.)
The super successful singer was recently named Artist of the Year by the American Music Awards. That makes him the youngest performer to ever receive the award. He took home a total of four awards at the ceremony for Best Pop Rock Artist, Album of the Year and Breakthrough Artist. In addition, he made Usher cry. And not because Usher didn’t win Artist of the Year. Usher later explained it was because he was proud of Bieber. Bieber called Usher his mentor and best friend.
The young protégé also, has an autobiography out in bookstores and is working on launching his own perfume. That’s right. Not cologne for men, but perfume for women. He says he wants to do things a bit different than other male celebrities who release their own cologne for men.
Just because he’s a young superstar, does not mean he is a natural with women. In my mind, he is the perfect example of the guy who seemingly has it all but could still use a little help in the love department. From what I’ve seen recently, Bieber is learning all kinds of things about picking up women. For instance, he is learning everything under the sun: from how to walk to how to talk.
(Have they considered getting him some style advice on how he wears his hair? If he weren’t 16, I would think he was attempting a comb over to hide a bald pate.)
He is learning flirting techniques and is learning how to wear his hat so he looks sexy and attractive to the opposite sex. The last thing you would imagine is the 16-year-old not feeling like he can attract women, right? We are bombarded with images of screaming, fervent female fans ready to run away with him and yet, he wants a little help in the attraction arena. I love that he is making an effort at such a young age to figure out just what women want and how to be the best man (boy) he can be. It is going to save him a lot of heartache in the long run. You see, despite his fame, he doesn’t really understand his own appeal and questions whether he is cool or not. But at least he has the perception to realize he has some work to do in this area and that is the most important step.
He has made comments to female fans that he is super flattered by their attention but he doesn’t quite get it and he confesses to them that he’s really not that cool. Well, he’s doing a good job fooling everyone. He’s the perfect example of faking it until you make it.
