Justin Bieber is on the NME cover and the internet is losing its collective sh*t


NME’s recent cover stars have not impressed long-term fans of the magazine.

The likes of Rihanna and Taylor Swift have graced the front of the publication recently, to the shock of avid readers, but the latest choice is even less popular.

Justin Bieber’s oeuvre doesn’t sit well with those who became NME fans for their coverage of British indie, and some of the angry reactions reflect this.

Some were quick to point out the contrast to past editions.

It was the last straw for a lot of former fans.

A few drew comparisons with another music magazine.

But some responses just win points with us for their bluntness.
