My Citizen & Echo column: Why Justin Bieber is in meltdown

Welcome to “Monday is the new Saturday” where I pop the link to my Weekend magazine column ‘The Last Word’ from the Gloucestershire Citizen and Echo…

My Weekend column on Saturday was all about teenage popstar, Justin Bieber and how too much, too young means the lad is going into meltdown – now. I’ve stuck the column on my Citizen column page here so you can have a read.

You can also catch me each week on the Citizen and Echo Weekend magazine website. There’s lots of other lovely weekend stuff on there, too. 

The Citizen & Echo Weekend magazine comes out every Saturday. 

Is Justin Bieber going the same way as Britney Spears? Or is he simply having a good time? Let me know.
