Justin Bieber Defends Wearing Overalls To Meet Canada’s Prime Minister

Justin Bieber is many things, but a fashionista? Not even close.

Over the weekend, Bieber was honored with a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal
(which is given to Canadians who do great things) by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The singer posted a pic of his outfit — a white tee with rolled-up short sleeves, striped overalls with one strap undone, a backwards black cap, long chain necklaces, and bright yellow sneakers. Because what else do you wear to meet the Prime Minister of Canada, right?

Naturally, the interwebs blew up, with the general consensus (ours included) was, “Really?”. To make matters worse, the Biebs took a full-length pic of himself and captioned it: “I hope you hate my style”. Well, we do.

The backlash was apparently too much for Bieber to handle silently, so he took a screenshot of Hayley Peterson‘s piece for The Daily Mail and responded via Instagram:

The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where i was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you “Hayley” expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan [sic] a suit at that specific time that’s crazy, It wasn’t like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am i ever white trash hayley peterson lol

But for what it’s worth, not everyone hated Bieber’s outfit. Harper himself tweeted: “In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls too. #cdnpoli#beliebers”.

Check out the outfit in question:
